Have you seen it? Earlier this week, after hearing and listening to lots of user feedback, Google returned the "Shared with Me" container in Google Drive ---- no more Incoming container. If you are using the New Google Drive (learn more here), then you may have been struggling with the new "Incoming" container and what to do with it. Well, set your concerns aside and breathe a sigh of relief. Your friendly "Shared with Me" has been returned along with its older, friendlier interface. YEAH!

On another note...

Also appearing on the New Google Drive interface is the return of the "Add To" function. Before this week (on Windows PCs), when you dragged and dropped an object from one container to another in Drive, the object was MOVED to the new container. However, today...if you hold down the CTRL key (OPTION key on Mac) and drag and drop an object, it will be ADDED TO the target container, allowing the SAME object to appear in two places in your drive. YEAH!

And lastly...

After a long wait, viewing Tables in Google Documents using an iOS device is now supported. Be sure to update to the latest versions of Google Drive and Google Docs for iOS to enjoy this new functionality.
