Evernote Works Better with Google Drive
Google today said it has expanded Google Drive's support for Evernote, making it easier to share files between the two cloud services. Before today, Drive content shared to Evernote took the form of a link. Now, Drive content includes thumbnails and/or previews of the content so it can be seen from within Evernote. Evernote has added a Google Drive icon to its toolbar to facilitate jumping from one app to the other. Moreover, Google says any changes made to documents or images in Google Drive will be reflected in Evernote automatically. The new features are available to Evernote on the web and for Android.
