Chrome Browser For ICS 4.0 (snApp review)

After using the stock browser on ICS 4.0 for about a day and feeling really un-impressed with it’s limited features and bland looks, I decided to venture into the other browsers available! I used Mozilla firefox for a short time before i got fed up with it being slow and clunky. I don’t think the desktop idea has really tanslated well enough to the mobile version yet for me to be impressed, and this was deleted within two days!

Chrome Beta is only available on devices running the latest O/S IceCream Sandwich 4.0 and in certain countries, check with http://goo.gl/6ARvc to see if your country can get it yet?

If you are running ICS4.0 and want to download Chrome do so at ‘Google Play Store’

The browser is just that, a straight forward page viewer and isn’t fancy in the smooth, sleek or sexy department. It is however rather functional, it will link with the beta desktop Chrome version and show any open tabs from both devices on each others browser.

  

Pages look well rendered and clean, pages load quickly enough but when you have more than 2 tabs open it does slow down a little! The only beef I’ve had is the fact that the Chrome desktop browser can eat RAM rather quickly!

Google Drive Goes Live – For Some!

Google have today released the long awaited ‘Google Drive’, a cloud storage service which allows users a 5Gb (FREE) account and options to upgrade to 25Gb, 100Gb or 1TB of data storage! Not all google users are able to access this service as yet, I have 3 gmail accounts and not 1 of them has the service available to me yet.

Check if it’s available for you ‘HERE

Download the app from the mobile Play Store in readiness of the full release, just search for ‘Google Drive’
