Do more with google drive

  1. 1.             Do  more  with  Google  Drive!                 www.techglimpse.blogspot.com   www.fb.com/techglimpseph                          
  2. 2. Sync  with  multiple  platforms   5GB  of  storage  might  not  mean  much  these  days,  but  for  documents,  it's  more  than   enough.  What's  more,  you're  also  able  to  edit  these  documents  and  have  the  changes   reflected  immediately  on  documents  store  on  devices  or  in  the  cloud.  Part  of  Google's   strategy  is  also  to  get  its  products  (like  Google  Drive)  onto  as  many  platforms  as   possible,  so  no  matter  which  platform  you  use,  chances  are,  Google  Drive  is  (or  will  be)   available  there.  Sync  seamlessly  with  each  and  every  one  of  your  devices,  even  if  they   are  on  different  platforms         Better  conversion  of  other  formats   If  you  haven't  started  using  Google  Drive,  chances  are,  it's  due  to  Google  Doc's  lousy   interpretation  of  documents  in  other  formats.  To  fix  that  little  problem,  Google  acquired   Quick  Office,  a  veteran  when  it  comes  to  mobile  office  apps.  Access  to  QuickOffice   engineers  allowed  Google  to  upgrade  their  conversion  method,  and  the  end  result  is  the   ability  to  accurately  render  and  display  some  of  the  most  popular  document  formats.     Attachment  of  upto  10GB   A  recent  update  to  Gmail  now  allows  you  to  send  attachments  that  are  10GB  in  size   (depending  on  the  size  of  your  Google  Drive).  You'd  probably  be  sending  much  smaller   attachments,  but  now  you  won't  have  to  deal  with  the  previous  limit  25MB.  You  won't   be  sending  the  actual  file,  but  rather  a  link  to  the  given  file  stored  within  Google  Drive.   Also  take  not  that  those  files  can  be  updated  whenever  you  want  to.  and  recipients  will   always  have  access  to  the  latest  version.          
  3. 3. Collaboration   One  of  the  biggest  features  of  cloud  services  like  Google  Drive  (which  has  absorbed   Google  Docs),  is  that  documents  within  the  service  are  always  in  their  latest  state.  That   means  changes  are  instantly  saved,  so  people  you  are  collaborating  with  have  access  to   the  latest  version  of  the  document.  Google  Drive  also  allows  multiple  users  to  work  on   the  document  at  the  same  time.  This  lets  users  collaborate  in  real-­‐time,  reducing  the   need  for  time  consuming  meetings.     Mobile  Editing   One  of  the  great  things  about  Google  Drive  is  that  it  has  robust  support  for  mobile   devices,  whether  smartphone  or  tablet.  Because  Google  Drive  lives  primarily  on  the   web,  it  makes  sense  that  it  should  work  on  any  web-­‐connected  device.  Recent  updates   to  Google  Drive's  native  mobile  apps(iOS  and  Android),  enabled  users  to  edit   spreadsheets  instead  of  just  documents.  This  makes  it  extremely  handy  for  minor  edits   and  collaboration  while  on  the  go.         Convert  photos/pdf  to  text   In  2009,  Google  bought  this  little  company  called  reCAPTCHA,  which  makes  those  little   puzzles(CAPTCHAs)  that  separate  humans  from  spam  bots.  These  puzzles  made  of   scanned  words  contribute  to  building  Optical  Character  Recognition  technology  that   converts  images  of  text  into  editable  (and  thus  searchable)  text.  This  technology  has   since  been  incorporated  into  Google  Drive,  so  you  can  start  converting  by  simply  taking   a  photo  of  text  on  paper            
  4. 4. Host  (test)  webpages   In  late  November  2012,  Google  introduced  a  new  and  brilliant  tool  for  web  developers.   Google  Drive  now  supports  the  hosting  of  test  web  pages,  with  support  for  Javascript   too.  Its  original  purpose  was  to  allow  Google  Drive  app  developers  to  test  their  web   apps  easily.  However,  users  can  avoid  paying  for  their  own  web  hosting  services,  and   just  user  Google  Drive  to  publish  simple  customer  web  content  like  photo  galleries  or   online  resumes.  Turn  Google  Drive  into  an  indispensable  part  of  your  work  and  personal   life       Apps  for  Google  Drive   Some  users  might  be  perfectly  happy  with  the  default  functionality  of  Google  Drive.  But   for  those  who  are  running  Chrome  OS,  or  need  additional  functions  on  Google  Drive,   they  can  turn  to  Google  Drive  apps.  These  web  apps  work  well  as  standalone  Google   Chrome  apps,  but  they  also  work  seamlessly  with  Google  Drive.  There  are  apps  that  let   you  send  faxes,  digitally  sign  documents,  and  edit  photos.  There  are  even  apps  that  help   users  manage  small  businesses.     Print  from  anywhere   A  really  useful  representation  of  the  tight  integration  between  Google's  products  is  the   relationship  between  Google  Drive  and  Google  Cloud  Print.  Each  one  is  a  separate   product,  but  can  seamlessly  operate  with  one  another.  Google  Cloud  Print  lets  you   manage  multiple  printers(they  must  be  connected  to  web)  in  multiple  locations.  With   Google  Drive  on  any  device,  you  can  then  choose  the  printer  and  location  you  want  your   documents  to  be  printed  from.
