Android users are finally reaping the benefits of being Google's favorite child. Â The new Google Drive app is seeing a marked improvement withÂ a sleeker, more aesthetic card-style design andÂ an intuitive user interface. Users can now swipe sideways to go from file to file. They alsoÂ have aÂ newÂ "download a copy" feature that allows them to do just that whenever they like. From there, the copy can be printed using the Cloud Ready printer (in FedEx office, for example, or if their own printers have been added to their Google Cloud Print accounts).
And, in a move especially beneficial to clutter collectors, the app now has a scanning function powered by the Drive's new Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technologyÂ that allows them to store paper docs that typically end up being shoved inÂ a shoebox or drawer somewhere.Additionally, making edits on Google Sheets will be a better experience as changes to font, size, color and cell alignment can now be made directly on the app.
