As you can see from the pics above the interface is looking slightly different from how it looked before the recent updated.


Other New Features

  • There is an all new grid type view that makes it way easier to find your files
  • The app has also taken after the desktop version and you can preview files right from within the app without having to actually open them using other apps on your phone.
  • You can scan important documents such as receipts and store them in Google Drive for safe keeping. After this you can then search for your files by content
  • You also have the option to download copies of your files to your local device, but this option is only for devices running Android 3.0 and above
  • Previous bugs have also been fixed in this version
