Photo uploads now useless
Very dissatisfied with the last 3 updates- Google Drive used to be my "go to" to app for backing up all my iPhone photos. Sadly, I noticed with the new update there are some major flaws that didn't used to be there. First: I like using iPhone's built-in photo editing features. I use them all the time because they are versatile and they allow edits to be made to a photo without downgrading the file size/resolution. However I noticed after the latest Google Drive update that if I upload an edited photo (say I made it black and white), Google drive will upload it in its original form without the edits. This is a HUGE inconvenience for me.
Second: it used to be the case that if I upload new photos to drive, it would maintain the title of the file as it appears on my iPhone. So before I could just upload photos any time and they would be alphabetized correctly and chronologically. Now, it uploads all iPhone photos with random titles, most of them titles "Full Size Render". What this means: if you try to upload new photos into a drive folder with pre-existing photos, you will manually have to rename any new uploads if you want your photos to be correctly alphabetized. This is time consuming and inconvenient.
I never had these issues before.
Do not use this to store and share Resumes!
Apple has restrictions on saving files to their devices including iPhones. In order to bypass this extremely frustrating and aggravating feature, I have resorted to saving my files to google Drive. In sharing my Resume stored on Google drive I have communicated with multiple application developers with extreme frustration that they have not been able to open the resume that I sent them from Google drive. It has come to my attention that Google Drive makes it extremely difficult and nearly impossible for anyone to use any resumes sent from Google drive. This must be the exact reasonwhy I cannot get responses to resume that I sent out. I am blaming 100% my frustration of not being able to acquire employment on both Apple's refusal to allow users to store files to their iPhones and Google drives restriction on file sharing from their services. I refuse to allow this to continue anymore. Starting from my next device I will no longer be utilizing any Apple devices. And I will refuseto utilize to drive for any cloud service. This is required to continue any future relationship with the professional world.
its true. no pictures
Not that Im a big fan of google trying to upload every picture I ever take. I actually hate that. But I did upload a few to share via google plus, etc. When I visit the google drive website, these photos are quickly and clearly visible. On this app however, all I get is a bunch of empty squares. No file name, date, preview icon, or anything. Selecting an empty frame gives me a cryptic file name, and then attempting to "open in" or simply view the picture results in the app freezing up and doing nothing for long periods of time. The desktop website portal is faster and better... unless you want to give google the ability to inspect every photo you ever take, and be able to use the camera in your device anytime they feel like it.
As soon as the app is installed, it sets the setting to upload every picture on the device to ON by default. The resulting upload steals data from my plan, steals private photos, and jamms the cellular data link so I cannot do anything about it except pull the plug (airplane mode) then search for and cut off the auto upload function(s)
