    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.

        Add Drive support and I'll buy it. Why create an Android app that doesn't support Drive?

        I dont know why you guys care! Dropbox is also free right? And I cant think of anyone needing gigabites of space for notes! Isnt any cloud backup the same thing?

        I'll buy cloud service as soon as you add Drive. Multiple accounts would be even better. Thanks!

        Yesterday I got this reply about the lack of Drive

        " The reason we have not provided Drive integration yet is because we want to completely revamp the "backup" functionality to be a true sync. Unfortunately this is very difficult. We've been avoiding putting too much work into our existing solution if we're just going to completely redo it. Hope that helps! "

        That probably means that we will actually get Google Drive support sometime in the future. At least now we have an answer and we can keep hoping.

        I just purchased this cloud backup ans noticed mo Googlw Drivw option. Ass please else I want my money back.

        Shouldn't this be merged with the Google Drive request further up the list with far more votes.

      • William Arias commented  · 

        This is huge. I was surprised when I saw Drive was not supported by Papyrus. Drive is commonplace in apps like this, why is it missing? Why is it still missing after 600 votes? What?

      • Konstantinos Daglaroglou commented  · 

        It would be great if developers could give us a clear, straight answer why they are leaving Drive out. Or at least they could reject the idea and close the case, so we could look for another app. Drive is absolutely necessary, period.

        Please! I bought the cloud services without realizing it only allowed backups to Dropbox and Box and have been unable to take advantage of the automatic export and backup features.

      • Sergio commented  · 

        Google Drive and One Drive... is the all and better options of clouds!! Please sync for all!

      • Shane Monroe commented  · 

        Can't I spend my remaining votes on this? Frankly, this is one of the most important things missing from the app - and (like others) I'm starting to suspect some sort of conspiracy to keep Google Drive out of the equation.
