Google Docs was turned into a general purpose cloud storage dropbox called Drive back in April. But in classic Google fashion, no one explained what you could do with your free 5GB of space besides upload and download files. Click these apps and authorize them to add smart tools to your free Google storage space. Pixlr : Full-featured photo editing of any image file. HelloFax : Fax PDFs right from your Drive (or any file, really, since it's easy to convert/print to PDF) WeVideo : Surprisingly powerful video editing DriveTunes : Queue and listen to music in Drive, rather than just previewing it. Mail2Drive : Forward long emails to a personalized email address and they're automatically converted to Drive documents.
Google Docs is one of those things that we tend to use daily but don’t get the full experience.
Having just passed its first birthday, Google+ might be one of the younger social networks, but it’s brought some new concepts into the parlance of social media. Among Google+’s signature features is the +1, a way of liking something on the platform; Circles, a means of organizing and following specific groups of people; and Hangouts, video chat for up to 10 people.
During today's keynote , Google announced that Chrome for iPhone and iPad. Like the Android version of mobile Chrome, users will gain incognito browsing, syncing information (such as passwords and other credentials) and tabs, which Engadget noted is similar to how they are in the newly announced Nexus 7.
After months of anticipation, Flipboard has arrived on Android smartphones, Amazon's Kindle Fire and Barnes & Nobles's Nook tablets. The app has also been optimized to include content from users' networks on YouTube and Google+.
It seems like schools are the one market where Google is having some success with its Chromebook initiative .
MeMeTales , a super-cute (and guilt-free!) children’s books application arrives on Android today, following its iOS release and public debut at 500 Startups’ demo day last October . Originally from Seattle, now a San Francisco-based operation, the company was founded by husband and wife team Maya Bisineer and Pree Kolari , and offers a library of picture books designed for preschool and elementary-aged kids and their parents.
GlogsterEDU has been announced as one of the applications found on the Google Chromebook’s Education App Pack: a set of apps recommended by the schools, teachers and users for a richer educational experience, at ITSE 2012 ! At ITSE, new features have been introduced to make Chromebook easier to manage in all aspects (including finding, managing, installing and using apps in your school). So what features are included?
When it comes to winnowing the Web down to what matters, Flipboard has led the charge - at least on the iPhone and iPad. The popular app, which curates social streams and Web content into a customized digital magazine, has remained an iOS exclusive until now. We spoke with Flipboard co-founder Evan Doll about the social magazine's hop onto Android and how apps such as Flipboard help us stay sane as the social Web streams by. After both an official and an unofficial beta gave Android users a taste of the hit social magazine app, Flipboard is out in the wild - for real this time. You can now download Flipboard for Android in the Google Play store (rather than sideloading it, as the beta necessitated). Flipboard for Android will come bundled on all new Samsung Galaxy S III smartphones across the four major U.S. carriers, but the app is now available for the ecosystem at large.
