The Google Drive app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has finally received a much needed user interface update. It is said in the official blog post that one of the features most users wanted on Google Drive for iOS was the ability to “effortlessly” browse and preview files, just like on the Android app. The update has been made keeping that in mind, it has the same card-style thumbnail layout as its Android counterpart. A number of other upgrades have also been made which improve the user experience of Google Drive app for iOS devices.
With just one tap, users can jump between the new thumbnail view and conventional list view. Instead of being mixed together, files and folders are now grouped more “intuitively.” The update also makes it easier to copy the link for a Drive file, a link is needed if one wants to share a file through email or text. Going to the details pane and tapping on “Get link” will automatically copy the file’s link to the clipboard. Files can also be shared with a friend or moved to one of the Drive folders from the details pane. Last but not the least, search has been brought to the forefront of Google Drive for iOS to make it easier for users to find what they’re looking for. The updated app is live now and available for download via iTunes App Store.
