Google Drive now offers a simple way to save files

Yesterday Google introduced an easier way to save files to Google Drive.

For users, it’s as easy as clicking a ‘Save’ button identified by a Google Drive logo and for site owners, it’s as easy adding a bit of HTML and a short script.

<script src="https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js"></script>
<div class="g-savetodrive"
 data-filename="My Statement.pdf"
 data-sitename="My Company Name"

There’s even an API allowing developers the option of using more advanced control when creating Save to Drive buttons on a website. It can be used for a myriad of different file types including ebooks, images, documents and more.

Check out some companies that have already added Save to Drive buttons on their sites: BigstockDelta DentalFotoliaO’ReillyOutboxUltimate Software, and Zen Payroll.
