Google Drive for Android Updated Bringing Document Scanning

google driveThe Google Team have been hard at work and it seems that even though Google I/O has passed, they are intent in ensuring their apps keep to the new clean interface (cards) that every other app seems to now follow.
The most notable update though is one of great significance:

“The updated Drive for Android app also gives you to a way to keep track of important paper documents like receipts, letters, and billing statements. Simply click “Scan” from the Add New menu, snap a photo of your document, and Drive will turn the document into a PDF that’s stored for safekeeping. And because Drive can recognize text in scanned documents using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, a simple search will retrieve the scanned document later. No more frantic scrambling through drawers looking for a receipt or digging through your pockets to find that business card — just scan, upload and search in Drive.”

I don’t know about you guys but this update alone for me is worthy of my praise, forget about the new look etc…
