You wanted Google Drive integration for Xodo on Android? You got it!

Users have been asking for better Google Drive support. This sounded like a great idea to us, so we upgraded Google Drive integration.

First up: Android devices! (But if you’re using Xodo for iOS or Windows RT, please don’t feel too left out — we’re already working on similar integrations for your devices.)

What’s new in Xodo 2.1.1 (Android only)

  • After you update Xodo, you will see Google Drive as an option in your in-app browser menu below the Dropbox tab. Starting from this Google Drive tab, you’ll be able to:
    • Open your Google Drive file storage directly from Xodo
    • Search, select, and open files from Google Drive with Xodo’s in-app filepicker
    • Edit PDF documents and save changes back to Google Drive directly from Xodo (yes, this means they’re no longer read-only!)

As always, if you can think of ways to make Xodo even better, we’d love to hear from you. Visit our Uservoice forum to vote for your favorite suggestions or add your own, or join Xodo on Twitter, Google+, or Facebook and drop us a line!

Xodo | Transforming how the world works with PDFs

Xodo 2.1 is our sweetest release yet

After launching live group PDF collaboration as part of Xodo 2.0 last month, our Dev Team focused on making Xodo’s in-app experience more dynamic and user-friendly than ever.

Xodo is the sweetest PDF app around.
If we’re talking about PDFs, Xodo is the cherry on every cake. Even tiny ones.

I may be a bit biased, but I definitely think they succeeded.

Xodo 2.1 features a number of upgrades for an easier and more versatile PDF reading experience. We also made annotating faster and more intuitive. Finally, to put the cherry on the cake, we added in-app PDF scanning.

Please note that this update is only for Android and iOS devices, but if you’re a Windows user, don’t fret – we’ll be adding more features for your devices soon.

New Features in Xodo 2.1 – Android & iOS Devices

  • Two-page layouts | View two pages at the same time in landscape orientation (options include facing and cover-facing)
  • Rotate pages | You can now rotate all pages in a document
  • Two finger scrolling | Scroll through any page with two fingers while annotating without triggering zoom
  • Define words | Quickly look up definitions for words while working on any document

  • Versatile annotation adjustment | Expand or collapse highlights, underlines, and strikethroughs the same way you would normally adjust text selections on your device
  • Resize free text [iOS] | You can now change the font size of free text annotations on iOS devices

Bug Fixes
  • Numerous small improvements and fixes to correct minor bugs and crashes

There are more changes in the works for August and September, including some really exciting additions that users have been requesting for a while. I’m dying to spill the beans, but I promised I’d keep it secret, so for now my keyboard is sealed.

In the meantime, if you can think of ways to make Xodo even better, we’d love to hear from you. Visit our Uservoice forum to vote for your favorite suggestions or add your own, or join Xodo on Twitter, Google+, or Facebook and drop us a line!
