Hot on the heels of Google I/O, the Mountain View-based company has officially updated their Google Drive app for iOS, and brought plenty of new features along for the ride.

Released today, and rolling out to iOS 7-based devices across the globe, Google’s updated Drive app brings plenty of tweaks and improvements behind the scenes, squashes a few bugs, and performance enhancements. Probably more interesting to end users, though, is the fact that Google has included plenty of new features to utilize while you’re working on your Drive-based documents.

One of those features is called Incoming View. It does exactly what it sounds, allowing you to view documents that have been shared with you as they are added. This way, as long as you’re using the app at the right time, you’ll be able to stay on top of any in-the-works projects as they arrive. Building on that real- or quasi-real-time collaboration, Google also included the Activity Stream, which will let you view edits to files or folders as they happen in the details panel.

You’ll also be able to set files or folders with the parameters of allowing people to edit, comment or just view them. The app also now supports faster uploading of pictures and videos, which sounds like a good deal for just about everybody.

The app measures in at 29.9MB, and it’s a free download in the App Store.
