Latest Google Drive update now requires Docs and Sheets apps to edit files

Latest Google Drive update now requires Docs and Sheets apps to edit files

Google Docs

Google Docs

Google has updated its Google Drive app in the Play Store, which now requires users to install standalone Sheets and Docs apps for editing of documents and spreadsheets. By stripping the editing function out of the Drive app, Google is intending that the Drive app be used for managing and viewing of your files on the cloud.

Though users will now need three apps to retain the functionality of the old Drive app, the upside is that you can now edit files without requiring a data connection in Google's standalone Docs and Sheets apps.

After you update the Drive app, if you haven't already downloaded the Google Docs and the Google Sheets apps, you'll be prompted to do so when you try to edit a Google Docs or Google Sheets document — though you can still view documents regardless. Interestingly, though, it seems that we were able to still open and edit native Microsoft .xls and .doc files that were uploaded to Google Drive natively within the Drive app.

This week's sidebar poll: Do you shop online from your Android?

This week's sidebar poll: Do you shop online from your Android?

Amazon app

Amazon app

If the new Google Play services app is any indication, Google wants to make it easier for developers to let you buy goods and services inside their app. Imagine this — an app for ShopAndroid that recognized your device, then let you click and buy accessories using Google Wallet. If things can get there (not quite yet, I imagine) it brings a new level of convenience for customers, and a great way for retailers to get you to click without leaving and checking out the competition. But this future-speak is just me thinking out loud. In the meantime, services like Amazon and eBay already allow you to buy almost anything under the sun right from their app.

The question is, do you? I do. I loves me some late-night-I-can't sleep Amazon binges right from my phone or tablet. More than one bird cage (it's a long story, and all Andrew Martonik's fault) has ended up here that way. Tell us all if you like to spend your money right from your phone in the poll below or in the right sidebar on the home page.

How to use Private Mode on the Samsung Galaxy S5

Private Mode on the Samsung Galaxy S5 is a convenient way to hide files you don't want seen by others, without the need for any third-party apps. When you're in Private Mode, all your photos, videos, and other files will be viewable. Exit Private Mode and hand your phone to somebody else. You can rest assured they can't see any of your hidden files, unless they know your code or unlock pattern.

Here's how to set up Private Mode on the Galaxy S5 and get started with it:

LG G3 images leaks again, this time in gold

Previously we've seen various close-ups or blurry shots of LG's upcoming G3, but today some new images have surfaced that give us a much better look at the new device. Now we can see the G3 in full — and in gold — and get we get a much better overall view of both the front and back that we've haven't seen before. Keep in mind that even though the G3 looks shiny and metallic here, it may very well still be plastic casing just like the LG G Flex.

Ultra Strike weapons make the leap from Droid devices to all players

Niantic Labs — the developer behind Google's "Ingress" game — today announced a trio of significant updates to the game.

Probably the biggest is that the max of level a player can reach has been doubled from Level 8 to Level 16. Those at the upper levels will be able to recharge Portals from farther away, and they'll get extra XM storage, too.

The addition of Capsules will make it far easier for agents to share items with each other. (Finally!)

And Ultra Strike Weapons — a rare kind of XMP Burster — are no longer exclusive to Motorola Droid devices and can now be obtained by anyone.
