Google Drive Alternative with GDriveSync

For many users, the official Google Drive app is just a bit too cumbersome. It can be slow to load, weighed down by its many often unnecessary features and functions, and too large in size. Maybe you just want to sync their files on the Android device into your Google Drive and be on you way. Well, GDriveSync allows you to just that.

XDA Forum Member alter0001 introduced to us GDriveSync, an app that is just a fraction the size of Google Drive and performs the simple but essential function of syncing files from your Android device straight to Google Drive. The app’s user interface is simple, allowing users to select which folders on the Phone’s SD card to sync. Users then set which folder in their Drive the folders are to be synced to. GDriveSync allow users to choose whether to sync only with a WiFi connection, and to automatically sync folders. Sync intervals range from every ten minutes to 24 hours.

Designed and developed to be “as simple to use as possible”, it can certainly be claimed that GDriveSync is extremely straightforward and user-friendly. It offers simple and useful functionality presented with a plain, direct, and simple user interface. Currently supporting Android version 2.2 and newer, the free version can be downloaded on the Play store with more details in the original thread.

Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
