Cloud storage service Google Drive may include a software development kit for third-party apps.

Google Drive, the cloud storage service rumored to be launching soon, looks like it will include support for third-party apps and a software development kit. Google Operating System has looked at the source code for Google Docs and found several mentions of an SDK in conjunction with Google Drive, including a mention of "" and an SDK "open with" command. This isn't conclusive proof, but it suggests that you'll be able to open Google Drive files with other applications.

There's also apparently a message suggesting more integration between Drive and Gmail: "Say goodbye [to] email attachments and hello to real time collaboration. Drag anything shared with you to My Drive for easy access." We'll know more in the coming weeks; for now, here's an image of the relevant code.
