One very recent update is an increase of cloud storage capacity to 15GB usable across Gmail, Drive, and Google Plus.

With the integration of these apps, users can now handle their files and documents ways not affordable by any other cloud storage tool out there.

Scribaepub: le iBook author du web He oui, il y a des services qui donnent de très bonnes choses, y compris lorsque ces services sont gratuits. Scriba propose donc de produire des ibook au format epub 3.0, donc totalement multimédia. J’ai déjà présenté Audra dernièrement qui a eu un gros succès. Scriba lui est bien supérieur. Petit bémol, il est seulement en italien mais on s’en sort très bien (et puis ça ne vous fera pas de mal de vous mettre aux langues étrangères. Au premier abord, il est moins sexy. Je vous passe tous les éléments très habituels. Une fois la création de votre livre lancée, vous devrez en définir la page d’accueil en ajoutant simplement une image mais rien d’obligatoire. Par la suite, la plateforme fonctionne comme une plateforme classique de logiciel de présentation. L’atout majeur de Scriba est son interface totalement Wysywyg qui ressemble à toute interface de traitement de texte. On se retrouve en somme avec une interface que tout le monde connaît. Un service exceptionnel. Lien: Scribaepub
