Add Google Drive as a Cloud Option
Support for Google Drive storage via cloud services.
We currently support creating and restoring backups to/from Google Drive via the local backup settings: http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/1185616
I understand that this does not meet everyone’s needs. Adding support for Google Drive to the automatic backup options is something we continue to investigate.
I recently wrote an open letter to Cloud Storage providers on this subject: https://medium.com/steadfast-innovation/open-letter-to-cloud-storage-apps-on-android-a2d0eb919fc4
Please encourage your favorite cloud storage provider (i.e. Google Drive) to fully support the Android Storage Access Framework (as stated in the above letter). This will not only help us to better support backup and restore to ANY cloud app, but will help the ecosystem as a whole.

For this to be a standard app installed on a Galaxy Tab (any flavor) and not have Google Drive and OneDrive integration is disappointing. The assistance provided in the Knowledge Base article pointed to (1185616) is not useful to me as the file browser that appears when trying to do a Local Backup shows only device storage and (after changing a setting) my SD card. I'm not sure who to be upset with -- Squid or Samsung. I paid for a premium subscription with the expectation that cloud storage would include Google Drive and/or OneDrive, and I feel mislead on this.
Okay, this is it. It's been 6 YEARS since this was asked! I don't care that you want to use the SAF, just implement the SDK solution for now and stop blaming Google for this issue! You guys' stubbornness has shown us how little you care about the features we want. I am very seriously considering deleting my premium account and just moving to Noteshelf purely because they actually WANT to listen to their users and are actively working on apps.
PLEASE begin working on this right now.
Google drive is still not here? Bummer! This is very important.

I just signed up for the premium abo and I am really surprised Google Drive Sync is not included. Any app syncs with Google Drive this really needs to be solved up soonest
2020 Clep/ar Vision --
We need support for using Google Drive an option for backup/restore.
While there is a VERY OLD feature request, you have complained in the response to that that Google is to blame.
We need YOU to implement this option in your software ... it can be done.
Many of us might even be willing to work with your team to help implement that.
Google Drive and OneDrive please
This is absolutely necessary
Is the drive sync comming soon? If not i will no longer use Squid
Joe Reno commented
This is a much needed feature, and considering the fact that this app subscription costs more than any other Android note taking app of similar functionality or the hugely popular iPad Notability, I am really surprised it hasn't been implemented. Come on guys..

We need google drive support or Squid desktop app to create reports from notes took on phones.

Tristan Gasser commented
I need squid to synchronise with google drive ! Thank you ! Nebo is perfect for the synchronisation, you should do the same.
Lance Johnson commented
Others like MyScript Nebo are already doing this. Not sure why Squid Notes can't implement this.
Scott Tabor commented
I would love to see Google drive added as a cloud storage provider. Dropbox is okay, but if Squid is intended to be tightly integrated with Google why wouldn't it be the default cloud storage provider? Thanks!!
For the past 2 years I've been installing and uninstalling squid because it doesn't work with Google drive. Every other app on the planet does. This is your company. Make it good. Then maybe you can be great.
Andrew, Here we are in July 2019 -- why not SIMPLY allow an automatically scheduled "back up local folder" option? Using the "date" as part of the back up name. We users can manage that while you figure out how to work to deliver this necessary business functtionality.
Is there an update on this? Looks like SAF is available for Google Drive
