    Google is certainly making a lot of exciting announcements this week at its I/O, with The Next Web reporting hot off the press that aside from announcing Chrome for iOS, Google has also just announced that Google Drive is now available in the App Store for iOS. Basically, Google Drive enables you to access your files on the go, as well as share them, and edit them in real time. It also enables you to save files for offline viewing. 9to5 Mac writes that during the announcement today, Director of Google Apps Product Management Clay Bavor demonstrated how he could use the Optical Character Recognition feature in the app to search for an untitled image of a “pyramid,†which sounds like pretty impressive stuff on your iPad or iPhone. Google is obviously very pleased with Drive, as the cloud storage system has only been out for 10 weeks, yet already has 10 million users. Google also starts you off with 5GB of free storage along with the free app.

    According to the Tech News Today podcast, the iOS app won't allow you to edit the documents, only download them for viewing.

    Let's get this straight, and please correct me if I'm wrong (because I WANT to be wrong!): There is no way to edit google docs offline on an iPad.... right???
