Pictodrive Extension | By Ct tricks & Souvik Bera

Hello everyone,

Today i’m here with my another cool extension Pictodrive. You can use this extension to uploading Images directly to your Google Drive. This extension is the outcome of a joint effort of Ct_tricks & @Souvik_Bera . Kinldy download and use this extension and let me know your views & suggestion in the comments below.

Q. How to get Folder ID?

Go to your Google Drive & create a New Folder and give it a title { Example : TestDropBox }. Now follow these steps;

:arrow_right: Now you have to format this url to get the Folder ID from it

:arrow_down: Download AIX : com.cttricks.techybro.Pictodrive.aix (15.8 KB)
:arrow_down: Download AIA : Uploading Soon…


Got it working…AppInventor 2
File Owner : Ct-tricks ?
No relative paths? / or //
No uploading of file in assets (using companion)
Strange error responses (when upload fails):

java.lang.RuntimeException: can’t toast on a thread that has not called Looper.prepare()
Only the original thread that created a view hierarchy can touch its views.

won’t help the user much :slight_smile:

A good effort all round !!

Can you upload files from the phone to Google Drive?

You should probably type,

The Pictodrive extension helps you upload images to Google Drive pro-grammatically providing you have the Folder ID.

Instead of,

Pictodrive Extension Helps You In Uploading Images To Your Google Drive Programatically. You Just Have To Provide The Folder Id.

Spelling errors were fixed, and sentence was lower-cased for parts that didn’t need to be upper-cased. Made shorter as well.

This was a simple suggestion, it wasnt telling you that the extension is bad. It includes proper English and it’s not off topic.

Did you credit Tanaike anywhere for his original script, or me, for that matter, for the development/conversion to AppInventor ?
