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.

    Not only that, it would be nice to have actual synchronization. Right now I have t he app in my note 4 and note 10.1 and I can just create new notes in the tablet because there is no way of creating notes on both and add sync between the devices. You just either back up or restore and that means overriding the contents of one device with the contents of the other and that is definitely overkill for the app. I don't carry around the tablet everywhere and sometimes I need to make notes in my phone but I can't since I have tons of documents I've created on the tablet and I don't want them to get "overwritten" when doing a restore from the phone. I mean having the ability of creating notes on the go with the phone and later review, modify, and edit on a tablet is a must. The app is nearly perfect, just this issue is very annoying. I've had the app for years now and this is the only feature that for me is missing to be able to say is perfect. And don't give me wrong, it's my favorite app for note taking and I even have the premium version, but I just would like to have the cloud sync feature.

    Please, I'm begging for this feature!!!

    TRY using "Ahsay software" i am using it from long time and quite impressed with its working. so if you want to know more about the "Ahsay software" it actually gives backup and restoring too

    I am using Squid ever since i started my academic studies and its a treat!
    Thank you all for your hard work in making this Awesome App.
    I'd love to see the option to Sync my work with Google Drive, at the moment i'm exporting manually each note to Drive which is somewhat frustrating.
    Thanks again!

    Good Day to All at Squid,

    Please make this simple but essential feature part of the package, premium if you want but stop taking your time... We need this link to Google Drive or we are going back to Google Note...

    I will undoubtably buy your app with Google Drive as a cloud option.

    There is no reason whatsoever why it shouldn't be there unless it's some sort of conspiracy against Google or they did something to harm you or your company.
    The other option would be...you actually don't like making money.

    Due to office 365. subscription millions of onedrive users. There is no need to keep dropbox while onedrive account

    Please oh please add this feature. Syncing with Drive would be a lifesaver for me. My entire job revolves around google applications and I use your app for many things in my job. However, not having a sync option is a massive pain as I liiterally need hundreds of squid documents. It's getting to the point where I will need to look for alternatives to Squid

    Drive is essential to the android and chrome OS ecosystem. It's like selling a pc without support for office.

    I want to pay for premium for 47 users in my company, but my business happily uses Google drive as cloud solution. Box is not as big and used as Drive. We need a Drive solution, Drive is the only thing missing for this app to achieve perfection. Many people have voted, please work on it.

    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?
