Google Drive for iOS and Chrome OS available right now

By on

At Google I/O 2012′s Day Two keynote, Clay Bavor, director product management for Google Apps, finally revealed that the promised iOS Google Drive app would finally be made available today. The app almost entirely match the Android app in terms of features  lacks editing, uploading, file deleting or the ability to create new files. So it’s basically pointless unless you want to look at images, PDF’s or just read documents alone in a cave somewhere. What’s the point? Who know’s.

Google Chrome OS is now getting the deep integration seen in the OS beta a few weeks back, with Google Drive literally acting as a local drive, with the ability to open and save files to it like you would to your Mac or Windows hard-drive. It’s actually pretty amazing and shows how much Google believes in the web as a replacement for native, local applications.

You can download the iPhone and iPad Google Drive app here and you can get the Google Drive Chrome OS integration by updating the Google Drive web app.
