Google pushed out an update to its Drive app for iOS this morning. The update brings forward several new features including the ability to open links from within files in either Chrome or Safari. The app also allows users to insert new rows and columns by using the "+" button in Google Sheets.




Version 1.5.0 of the app also addresses several bugs and has improved overall app stabilization, which should alleviate some of the app crashes that some iOS users have reported. Reports say that the app now appears to be faster overall and more responsive. No updates were made to the Android version of the app. Windows Phone users as well as those running BlackBerry 10 have nothing to worry about as Google has yet to release a Drive app for either of the alternative mobile operating systems.
