Google announced on Tuesday that they are rolling out the ability to upload and store any type of file in Google Docs over the next few weeks. It’s cool that Nokia N900 users will be able to take advantage of this service directly from their device by using the Petrovich and Pixelpipe apps.
Upload files other than pics or vids with Petrovich
The Petrovich app on the N900 allows you to send a file of your choosing via Bluetooth, E-mail, or a “Sharing service”. Add Google Docs as one of your Pixelpipe pipes and you’ll be able to store any type of files on Google’s servers.
Let’s break it up in simple steps:
- Install Petrovich
- Install Pixelpipe
- Add Google Docs to Pixelpipe
- Take note of the routing tag. Default is “@gdocs”
- Open Petrovich on Nokia N900
- Select the file you want to upload and choose “Share via Service”
- Type title or description, then add the “@gdocs” tag.
- Make sure the account showing is Pixelpipe.
- Click Share.
- That’s it!
Nokia N900′s Share feature makes this possible
Google says, “you’ll have 1GB of free storage for files you don’t convert into one of the Google Docs formats (i.e. Google documents, spreadsheets, and presentations), and if you need more space, you can buy additional storage for $0.25 per GB per year.” File size limit is 250MB. This feature is not enabled for me yet, but it will be available in the next couple of weeks. Will you be using it with the Nokia N900?
