Google has announced notable updates in their Chromebook apps coming out next week and the gallery app PDF editing features caught my attention the most.
It introduces new things PDF editing Functions such as “Fill out forms, highlight text, sign documents and add text annotations”. While these don’t cover all the editing features that professionals might need, they clearly cover the essentials for most people.
Additionally, Gallery might be a lot easier to install and use than the official free Acrobat Reader app, let alone the full Acrobat Pro solution.
Aside from PDF, Google also has a screen recording app called screencast app and a handwritten app called cursive app.
Screencast is great for recording tutorials or even slideshow presentations with voiceover. Normally this is handled by a 3approx Party app on Windows/Mac, but web apps might not be the best medium for that, so it makes sense for Google to step in and fill the gap.
The Italic app helps users capture and manage handwritten notes targeted at Chromebooks with e-Pen support.
We like how the Chromebook platform has evolved and taken over a large chunk of the Android tablet ecosystem with its desktop-level browsing and affordable prices. It’s great to see that Google continues to integrate key apps and services.
