Google announced that it will be adding two new features on its Drive SDK that will help developers use the service as a dependable storage option for application data. The SDK (Software Developer Kit) for Google Drive was created in order for developers to integrate the service into other apps and allow them to view, edit and upload files into the cloud.

The first new feature of the SDK is called app data folders. These folders will let developers store files that are hidden from users. These may include configuration files or app state data which the user will never see although its footprint in terms of data usage, users will be able to see how much space these files are taking up on their devices.

Then there’s custom properties which allows developers to use key-value pairs to store simple data. This will allow developers to create searchable fields that are app-specific or are to be shared with other apps. The SDK can now be found on StackOverflow and is compatible with both iOS and Android.
