Google Drive for iOS updated with comments for Google Docs files & swipeable images

Google today updated its Drive app for iOS with a couple new features including the ability to access comments for Google Docs and improvements to viewing images stored in Drive.

Version 1.4.0 of Google Drive for iPhone and iPad introduces the ability to “view, create, reply, and resolve comments in Google Docs files,” something users could not previously access from the mobile app for iOS.

While it’s not the full blown card-style redesign the Android app received a couple weeks ago, Google is also making easier to quickly view photos on iOS by allowing users to swipe through images while viewing in fullscreen.

What’s New in Version 1.4.0

*Swipe through your images stored in Drive

*View, create, reply, and resolve comments in Google Docs files

Photo Storage Stories May 20, 2013

All of a sudden Flickr is back. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer’s Tumblr (that was quick!) post on the matter:

Photos tell the stories — stories we’re inspired to relive, share with our friends, or capture simply to express ourselves. Collecting these moments is a part of our everyday. Since 2005, Flickr has become synonymous with inspiring imagery. Today, we’re thrilled to take Flickr even further with a beautiful, completely re-imagined experience that puts photos front and center. When it comes to photography, technology and its limits shouldn’t hinder the experience. So we’re also giving our Flickr users one terabyte of space — for free. That’s enough for a lifetime of photos — more than 500,000 original, full-resolution, pixel-perfect, brilliant photos. Flickr users will never have to worry about running out of space.

1TB is “I no longer have to think about where to store photos,” and full res quality means no compromise. Oh, and we’ve heard there will be some even bigger things coming up from Yahoo/Flickr for iOS users next month. Flickr is currently integrated into OS X and Apple TV software.
