Google have today released some pretty exciting news news the mobile Google drive app now allows on device/in app editing of your google documents! As far as I know it’s the first in the field of mobile online storage apps to offer such a service.
As you can see from the video below, they have pretty much got it nailed..
There’s only downside to the recent news… As of yet, the app does not support in app editing of Google Spreadsheets. However, I feel confident in saying it won’t be far behind todays release. Once it finally arrives, I will seriously have to reconsider my current alliance to Dropbox and SugarSync.
You can download Google Drive for iOS from the App Store now for free.
Upon switching to Mac OS X I needed to find a new development studio for my PHP works. I searched high and low and read many tutorials from many forums around the world. However, I have finally settled with NetBeans. NetBeans is an open-source application, which is not only capable of syntax highlighting PHP but Java, C/C++, Groovy, Ruby and many many more. It supports many platforms such as Windows, Linux, Mac OS C and even Solaris.
As most of you will know, I am predominantly a Linux user, having to put up with Windows foibles through my work, and my ‘love’ of Windows Mobile devices. For the last 11 years I have seen little exposure to the whole Macintosh world. That was until Friday, when I wen’t out and purchased a 17″ MacBook Pro.
