Everyone is waiting to see the next great product from Google. We’ve heard rumor after rumor that Google is going to unveil a cloud based storage system similar to box.com and dropbox. So far the name we keep hearing is “Google Drive”.
Well it looks like partner LucidChart has let the cat out of the bag. Theverge.com obtained the screen shot above showing that LucidChart’s synchronization tool will work with the forthcoming Google Drive. As soon as Theverge reported on this, the page seen above quickly disappeared, which gives the rumor even more credibility.
If that’s not enough for you, LucidChart’s CEO Karl Sun is a former Google senior engineer so there is already a relationship between LucidChart and Google. There’s no telling when Google will officially announce or release the Google Drive service, however Google IO is just two months away and that’s where they officially unveiled Google Music Beta last year.
Last year we started hearing rumblings of a cloud based file service coming out from Google. Google is the master of the cloud with all of the Google Apps and their easy ability to sync to Android devices.
Google is looking to take on competitors like Drop Box, Box.net and other cloud based file lockers. Google already has Google Docs for all of your document needs. They also have Picassa for photo cloud storage and Google Music for music storage. Now, with Google Drive you’ll be able to save any kind of file.
We took a press briefing with the great people at WYSE the day after Google IO ended back in San Francisco. They wanted to show off some of the really cool things that they were working on for the next version of PocketCloud, the best, bar none, remote desktop for Android.
Shortly after that meeting, we tweeted that the “Drop Box Killer” was on the way. Many people thought we were talking about competitors box.net or sugarsync. Nope, we were talking about PocketCloud. It is one of the many Dropbox alternative options available today.
If you use I-Drive for your cloud based storage needs you’ll be relieved to hear that I-Drive now has an Android application in the market.
The I-Drive Android application will allow I-Drive users to get in touch with their I-Drive cloud based storage anywhere they have a 3G/4G or Wi-Fi connection. Connecting to I-Drive via the Android app, will allow users to use their existing credentials to upload, download, view and edit files on the go and as they need them. The I-Drive Android application will even let you share files by simply entering the recipients email address.
