For example, if you were to search for "pyramid", it should display images with the word in them even if the file name is totally unrelated. On the Chrome OS side of things, Drive is said to be deeply integrated, right into the software's filesystem.

 

The technology allows for simultaneous collaboration, and sync across devices, right up to the point of having live updates for each keystroke. Impressive. Documents can be edited offline, and resynched when an Internet connection is detected.

 

You can grab the iOS-based app here.
