You can use the hopTo iPad app to access and edit documents that are stored on your Google Drive

  1. Login to the hopTo app. In the 'My Cloud' section tap the 'Add' button

  3. In the next screen you get to enter your box credentials to allow the hopTo app to access your Google Drive documents

    Note that we do not store or save your password. We receive an access token from Google Drive which we use to gain access to your account so that your personal information is always secure and not compromised.

    After entering your credentials Google Drive will ask you to allow hopTo to access your documents. Tap on 'Accept' to finalize the authorization process

  4. Google Drive now appears green with a check next to it to designate it is now a connected file source for hopTo.

  5. You are all set! You can now see the Google Drive icon under the 'My Cloud' section and your Google Drive documents are available in the 'My Documents' area.

Hi,

In order to disconnect from a file source you will have to reset the app settings.
Please read the following knowledge base articles that will explain how to do so:
No sign out functionality for connected cloud file sources - http://support.hopto.com/support.hopto.com/support.hopto.com/entries/28397697
Hope this helps.

John,

Please see my previous comment on this topic.
You can edit documents on Google Drive but not of all formats.
Let me know if my previous comment does not answer your question.

Does HopTo automatically sync changes back to my Google Drive?

You can edit documents on your Google Drive if they are stored there in Office format (Excel or Word).
Native Google documents and spreadsheet can be viewed in read-only mode.
A way to work around that is to export them to the Office format and save in your Google Drive which will give you full editing capabilities.
Hope this helps.
