Posted by at 11:51 am on May 22, 2013

Google today announced the availability of a new version of its Drive app for Android devices.

Google Drive has been updated with a number of user interface tweaks to make it easier and faster to access files and documents. Documents are now laid out in cards that offer large previews of the content within the document. Users can swipe from card to card and document to document, viewing previews as they go. The app now also lets users download and store copies of files to their Android device.

Another new feature of Google Drive lets Android device users snap photos of documents, which are then converted into PDFs and automatically uploaded to Drive for safe keeping. Google says that Drive’s optical character recognition feature will allow the text of those documents to be searchable.

Last, Google Drive for Android updates the editing tools for spreadsheets, making it less cumbersome to make changes from mobile devices.

The new version of Google Drive for Android is free to download from the Google Play Store.
