There are so many cloud-based tools these days the options are nearly limitless. That’s great for consumers. But it can be a challenge for users of these services to keep things organized, especially when their data is spread across multiple platforms. Fortunately, many of these services offer public APIs that make it possible for them to work together. Resourceful developers have taken advantage of this ability, and the latest example comes from productivity app Evernote, which is adding Google Drive integration:
More and more in our cloud-centric, mobile world, the secret to productivity lies in linking great services together. Every day, Evernote customers create millions of notes that contain links pasted from Google Drive, and they asked for a better way to connect the ideas they keep in Evernote with actions they take in Google Drive. Today, we’re proud to announce that Evernote and Google Drive now work better together, making it easier than ever to capture, organize, and collaborate on whatever is on your mind.
Here’s how it works:
All the files you keep in Drive are now easier to access in Evernote. Now, instead of seeing only URL links, anyone can browse anything created or stored in Google Drive right in Evernote notebooks. With this integration, Evernote customers can add any file in Drive to their notes without leaving Evernote. And any changes to files in Google Drive will dynamically update in Evernote.
Google Drive integration for Evernote is currently in beta mode and is available to Google Chrome and Android device users. Other platforms will follow over time.
