Hot on the heels of Google’s new Docs and Sheets applications, the modern technology titan has actually also released a new upgrade for the Goole Drive application.

Fortunately is that Drive for iOS now has an optional passcode lock attribute that allows you to shield your documents with a 4-digit code. The bad news is that Google has removed the capacity to edit your files outward the app, returning Drive to simply another person paper customer like it was when it first showed up in the App Store.

The Google Drive app is dead, lengthy live the Google Drive application.

When you press the typical pencil icon to edit a paper, the app– in a move that is either passive threatening or tone deaf– thinkings you “Attempting to modify?” Then it shows a screen prompting you to download Google’s brand-new Docs apps, which unsurprisingly just emerged the other day.

If you are among the individuals who still trusts app providers to offer you a warning prior to they paralyze your apps, maybe it’s time to stop. Similar to ComiXology prior to it, Google Drive does not advise customers prior to they download and install the brand-new upgrade that a major attribute– perhaps the significant feature– of the app is no much longer offered.

Instead you’ll simply view this in the store.

Who would not wish to add password security to the already amazing Google Drive app? Why there are “performance enhancements”! Little did our company know that the answer for everybody that wishes Google Drive to stay an incredible application is to not update it.

It would have been great to have had a little warning, but then Google could not blindside you into downloading their 2 new apps to have the exact same capability you when had with one.
