Some quick testing seems to show 1.15.6464.0228 has fixed the issue with corruption of Keynote & Pages files. I wish they'd confirm it!

Follow up to my last review.
1.14 still causes Keynote, Pages & Numbers files to be corrupted when uploading. Google has finally acknowledged the issue, so hopefully the fix is coming soon.
Lengthy discussion can be found here: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/drive/QXUxXGWWaKA

Lots of people still having serious sync issues with the client (web interface updates, other machines don't receive the files for ages). Looks like 1.14 does not fix this either.

As usual Google think they know best. The inline PDF renderer is garbage. Our clients using it thought we were crazy for putting out broken PDFs. Nope, just rendered garbage on random lines. Renders fine in every version of Acrobat past 5 and in Preview. (and I thought Acrobat sucked!).

It has been less reliable & crashy over time. Not really a fan of the interface, either.

Stability a huge issue when you have lots of files.

We use it here at our office, and when a new machine is first set up, it takes days to fully sync, with the App crashing 2 or 3 times during that period.

There is something really off with the timing of the syncing as well. I can save a file to it, wait a few minutes, yell the time stamp across the office to a coworker. He'll check his time stamp and it will be the same. But his document will still be the old one. Some random amount of time later, the file will update. It's caused some really messy situations. It's so bad that most employees have given up using the App and just use the online interface.

Dropbox is much better in every respect (except maybe the amount of free space included).

0.9.9 is a big step up in ease of usability (especially for those not really familiar with the ins & outs of x264). The presets panel on the Video tab in particular is a god-send. You can now select the target profile and H.264 level, then select how long you're willing for the encode to take without messing up those first settings.

It needs a notes column apart from just the Hostname. I generally use a spreadsheet and have a location column, as well as a notes column--I often add which address is wireless and which is wired on machines with multiple interfaces.

As well, would be nice if it saved the devices there were present on prior launches. Would make it easier to see what's missing.

Would be great as a QuickLook plugin.

Yeah, that's exactly what I was getting at.

Hmmm. Seems broken. Anyone else getting:

“Plug-in Installer” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should eject the disk image.

Any comments on an update for Lion? Current version doesn't work. I miss it!
