Google DriveA couple of months ago a I wrote a post about Google Drive. In this post I will introduce you to a couple of online apps that can help you work more efficient with Google Drive. When you have all your files available online where ever you are you might sometimes need some nice online services to work with your files. These 4 online apps seem to be great for that purpose. Go ahead and check them out.


1. Hello Sign

With Hello Sign you can sign documents online and save the environment from a lot of waste paper. Why use a lot of effort with printers and scanners when you can do it all without wasting a lot of paper. So far the service is free, but a paid edition with more complex features might be available in the future.


2. Hello Fax

Hello Fax comes from the same US. company as Hello Sign. With Hello Fax you can send a fax online with cover page and everything. You can select a file from your Google Drive to Fax without having your own Fax machine. This service is perfect for a small office. Hello Fax is not free, but if you only need to send a fax once in a while it might be



3. Pixlr – Online Photo Editor

With Pixlr Photo editor, you can work with your photos in an online Photo Editor right in your browser. I must admit that I am pretty amazed by the features of this online Photo Editor. MS Paint Go home 🙂

  3. Mike says:

    Hi Thomas first thanks for the tips, but i dont use google drive. what is the benefit of this google service?

    • Thomas says:

      The Google Drive service is pretty much the same as DropBox and SkyDrive. The advantage of Google drive might be that is has better integration for other Google Apps.

    Hey Thomas,

    Great post, Thomas! I enjoy working with Pixlr but it’s been fairly unstable for me on Chrome. Any tips on how to avoid crashes? I usually work with jpg files ~4.5MB each.lately

    Hi Thomas, This is a great list for Google Drive. I still use Dropbox and am pretty wedded to it. But if I ever switch over, it’s great to know which apps are available.

    • Thomas says:

      Hi Carolyn
      I use Dropbox as my primary online storage too. However you can still use these apps without Google Drive the integration is just better with drive. I really think that the Pixlr editor is cool if you are using a computer without a photo editor.

      • Carolyn says:

        I’m always afraid, if I use more than one cloud storage service, that I won’t remember where I stored a file. In the beginning, before there was a Kindle bookstore, I used to get ebooks from a bunch of different sites. Then I couldn’t remember which book came from which site.

        But I love photo editing so I will check out Pixlr. Thanks for the recommendation!
