Titanium Backup Adds Google Drive Based Backup Option

 
After the long-awaited launch of Google Drive, it was only a matter of time before users began seeing integration with Android apps. While there's no official Android API for Google Drive just yet, many devs suspected that Drive's Java API would work just fine, despite a confusing statement on Google's developer site:

Warning: Apps will not have any API access to files unless the app has been installed in Chrome Web Store. To test an app during development, you must first create a listing and install it.Putting that idea to the test, popular (and extremely versatile) backup solution Titanium Backup has made use of the cloud service's Java API to bring Drive backup options to users in a recently released update.

While it's great to see added Drive support, the ability to schedule Drive (or Box) backups seems to be missing, despite the app's promise to schedule Dropbox, Box, and Drive syncs.   
That being said, Titanium Backup's added Drive support makes it the first app to officially deserve this badge:
