Google has released Chrome and Google Drive apps for iPad and iOS today. They’re both available in the App Store now and they’re both free apps and universal apps designed for both iPad and iPhone.
Exciting stuff. The Chrome app is the iPad and iOS version of Google’s super speedy web browser. It lets you sync ‘your personalized Chrome experience’ from your desktop PC. It has the omnibox to both search and enter URLs and lets you sync tabs, bookmarks, passwords and omnibox data from PC to iPad and iPhone.
Google Drive is what Google Docs has morphed into recently. Here are some of the iPad app’s features:
- Quickly and easily access and view your documents, photos and videos anywhere
- Make files available offline so you can view them even when you don’t have Internet connection
- Easily share files with collaborators on the go
- Sync files across your desktop and all your devices
- Open files from Drive with other apps installed on your device
- Star your most important files to easily find them later
I’ve literally just installed these two apps, so nothing much to say about them for now other than it’s good to see them hit the App Store and to see that both have proper iPad versions.
