There are Google guys who prefer to use Android devices with Google’s services and Apple guys who like iOS devices with Apple’s built in stuff (like Safari), but if you’re the type of guy who needs to get his Google fix on an iOS device, then here’s a bit of good news. Google has announced that the Google Chrome web browser and their Google Drive cloud storage service is now (finally) out on the App Store.
The Google Chrome app will be available for free as a universal app for devices running on iOS 4.3 or later, offering the same download for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that meets the OS version requirements. More importantly, the Google Chrome app will also be serving up the same features already available on the Android and desktop versions.
Like the existing versions on other platforms, the Google Chrome app features tabbed browsing and quick switches between tabs. The mobile browser will also let you sign in and sync your settings, open tabs, bookmarks and saved passwords between multiple devices, or send pages from your desktop to your mobile for reading later, even when it’s offline.
Google Drive gives users free online cloud storage space, which can be used to collaborate on documents or share files stored in the cloud with other people remotely. Available for free on the App Store for the iPad and iPhone (running iOS 5.0 or later), Google Drive also comes with 5GB of free cloud storage.
