Exporting GarageBand to Google Drive on the iPad

When you try to share a GarageBand project out from the iPad, the immediately apparent options may include only Facebook, SoundCloud, and YouTube (yes, even if you select the More option).

If you want to export your project to Google Drive, you may have to take a few extra steps.

  1. It does not work for me, the load bar just stays at 50 percent and never uploads further. This sucks, yet another reason why I should have gotten a Windows Tablet with FL Studio instead of this junk.

  2. Worked great for me as long as flipped to another app while the file was exporting, which is kinds weird, but it worked!! Thanks!!
