Oh how I love Google Drive. When I was helping direct a play a few months ago, I was able to edit the script as my actors were reading their lines while I was walking around them and giving them notes. It was an amazing multitasking experience I'd never be able to repeat with such ease using any other app.
Google Drive received a fairly substantial update yesterday, bringing the app a range of features previously only available to desktop users. You can now change font sizes in your documents, pich to zoom in your docuuments editor and create, reply and resolve comments. All of this means a much richer Google Drive experience when you're on-the-go.
But perhaps most importantly, presentations on this app finally look good, so you can actually prepare for your Powerpoint on your phone before you step in front of your clients. The future is NOW, folks.
