Google Drive Positive Reviews
Best file storage app createdLet me start by saying that I have never attempted to use another file storage system long term. Mainly because nothing could compare to Drive. I practically grew up on Google, so I just knew it and automatically used Google Drive. Everything else I’ve tried honestly was nothing to Google. I would recommend this 100%.
I find nothing wrong with it except for one small thing that was not near frustrating enough to make me remove a star. This issue is the fact that we can’t edit directly through Drive on iOS mobile devices (and I’m not sure about Samsung or Chrome mobile devices). If it could be arranged to where we on mobile devices could edit files directly through the Drive app and not through branch apps like Slides, Docs, and Sheets, that would be greatly appreciated. If not, I’m sure there are reasons and it will not be too big a deal for me.
As for the recommendations part of the review, I would say to anyone considering using Google Drive: DO IT. You will not regret. It’s easy to use, free, and includes every option you might need for editing and collaboration. So, yes. I hope everyone takes this into account..Version: 4.2020.48302
It won’t index a directory tree or show you files without them being fully synced.I purchased the 2 terabyte plan and assumed it would behave like one drive. It doesn’t. One Drive will index the directory tree and all your files almost instantly. Then even while those files are still uploading to the cloud, you other devices know they have been shared and will be available soon. In fact, it you try to open one the one drive will prioritize it and grab it first for you. You can also see all of the files available in the cloud on your desktop without having to take up space on your hard drive by actually downloading them all.
So I purchased the 2 tb plan, dropped in about 500 FB of files and waited. 4 days later and my second computer still can’t even see a list of all of my files. I need some of these files to build designs. I had to get a thumb drive and copy the stuff I needed. Because Google lacks a working index of files and won’t let me see or select files from that index to prioritize I just have to wait for weeks for my slower internet connection uploads all 500 gb of files before I can get the ones I need. It’s a bit of a joke. One drive was much better. Too bad my work blocks one drive on their system. I would switch back immediately..Version: 4.2020.48302
Design & FunctionalityNo complaints so far! Been using Google Drive on the web for a long time, and decided to try out their mobile app. Unlike other apps, this doesn’t become finicky and slow when used on older Apple devices running iOS 12. The transitions when switching between folders and menus are snappy, even better than the website! They don’t have to take time to load, they’re just ready when you are. I also like the ability to open pages like Sites and Forms through the in-app browser, instead of redirecting to another app. With that being said, I have a couple of suggestions.
When I want to edit a file, it doesn’t appeal to me that you have to download separate apps and switch between them. It would be nice if it could all be done in one app, like the new Office app by Microsoft.
Secondly, native support for editing plain text files. When working with small amounts of data, I commonly use .txt files. To edit those on the web, I use a separate add-in. But I have no way of editing those files on the mobile app, like other cloud services can. Please consider adding these features!.Version: 4.2021.12205
Google Rocks!Google’s versatility and full functionality have made so much of what I do easier. Previously I used three or four different online services. One service could store images. Another could store text. A third and fourth were used to take notes for research and compose files. When I needed to compile all of the information between those different sources. I would open content in one environment, copy and then paste the content into a completely different environment. Then have to worry about trying to remember which platform my final continent was stored on. Many times I would recreate content because I couldn't find the last version of my file. Or forget where a part of what I had created was located.
With Google’s amazing features and tools, I now know that everything is stored in one location. I can easily work on my files in a single seamless environment. You have made my processes faster and allowed me to cut unnecessary time..Version: 4.2018.09208
Almost GREATI love Google Drive!!! It is a very valuable tool. I use it hourly during the work week. I am able to jot down an idea on my phone, turn it in to a project at home, present it at work, assign it to my students, have them finish it on their computers and grade it all through Google Drive (and Google Classroom). It is impossible for me to forget my thumb drive, cd, or any other archaic storage device, because Google Drive is always there from any of the devices (my phones, iPads, Chrome Books, and generic school desktop computer, or another business computer). I rarely have trouble with formatting issues from one computer to another system and if I do, it’s minor. Where Google Drive fails a five star, in my opinion, is organization... especially when sharing files. I have files shared with me that I have no idea what is in them and if I tried to organize all of it, someone else could unorganize it. I rely on the search bar MOST of the time. But, that means I have to remember what I labeled something three years ago! Then, I will likely find something else equally good from a shared file I didn’t know existed that could have been used LAST week..Version: 4.2019.14202
Has become the essential tool in my officeIn my previous office we used Microsoft Office, Outlook and Box for file storage, sharing and editing. Box edit works but is super clunky and hopeless for real time document editing. Google Drive just works better across a shared workspace environment, with Google docs for group editing, commenting, comment resolution, taking, etc. Perhaps even more importantly, Google Drive and Docs and Sheets are a great way to collaborate across operating systems. My office is half Apple and half Windows environment in HQ, and about 30-70 in our international offices. Google is platform agnostic - I use Drive and their office suite from my iPhone, iPad, Windows desktop and iMac. It just works.
The one area where I still prefer Microsoft is for email. Gmail is just not sophisticated enough for enterprise use. We are stuck with it in my office and all use different workarounds. I’ve been waiting for a decade for gmail to have half the functionality of Outlook!.Version: 4.2018.03203
Best storage and Access ever!I recommend the Google drive to everyone and anyone. It is so versatile. I found it Stream Lee useful when I was handling an estate and needed documents repeatedly. Whether I was dealing with insurance companies and banks or lawyers, all I had to do was tap on a file I had scanned and stored on the drive and I easily emailed it over to them while sitting in front of them. I have told others to scan anything and everything they can to be able to access it when needed. I also love doing crafts and keep patterns on the drive. Rather than carrying around papers that can easily be misplaced, I pull up a pattern on my phone or tablet to zoom in an see things clearly and easily. Naturally, it works great for my work files. I can update files without being in front of my laptop. I can back up all of my files and know that they are safe. A difficult question would be why wouldn’t you use Google drive?.Version: 4.2019.38203
Hate the app. Love cheap extra storage.I absolutely love how cheap Google Drive is. It’s wonderful to have the option to offload files from my various devices for practically nothing.
That being said, this app, just like many other google apps - both desktop and mobile - is absolutely awful. It suffers the same fate as most of their other apps - terrible navigation, not intuitive, convoluted processes to do anything, and a host of other issues. I’m not sure who’s making the UX decisions at Google - it seems like it may be Helen Keller - but they should be canned. Nothing is where it should be, or where one would think it is. I’ve had this app for years and I still can’t navigate through it without making multiple errors. There is no rhyme or reason to 99% of the design choices in this app, or if there is, I’d love to know what those rhymes and reasons are.
Maybe it’s some conspiracy where Google makes their apps really difficult to use so that people then have to do a google search so that they can figure out how to work google’s abysmal apps..Version: 4.2020.08201
Great AppThis app makes it really easy for me to manage and create documents. I save a lot of time by having all of my important documents for business in one place, and I never have to hunt for anything. The app does nearly everything Google Drive does on a computer so I never feel like I’m missing out on anything.
I really like that this app allows for some level of interoperability with iCloud, which I use to save files from the Microsoft Word app. Once I finish with a document in the Word app and save it to iCloud, I just share the document to Google Drive. If I have any complaints, it’s that there’s no option to save to Google Drive from the Microsoft Word app!
Other peripheral functions like search and quick access are also useful and help save time. File management works well with the right folder structure, and there’s a good level of detail included in the document information summary. Overall a good app 👍🏾.Version: 4.2019.02201
Handy Beyond BelieveI’m retired, but when I worked, I was the guy colleagues came to with questions about MS Word. I wrote books on Word, 2 of which were technical with graphs, charts, tables & statistical formula (with all those Greek symbols). I admired Word for 20+ years! But a problem with Word for me was portability; before leaving for or from work I had always to copy files from the home or work computer to a jump drive—and many were the times I had to travel back to home from work or from work to home to get a file I didn’t think I’d need. Google Docs & Google Sheets brought all that to an end. I was in Portugal last month & opened several Google Docs & Sheets in a flash.
Docs is not quite as sophisticated as Word—& I am especially unhappy when working on a painfully stupid PC keyboard with Docs’ arduous process of inserting special characters (e.g., é as in sautéed, & for and, ° for degrees)—but Docs’ ready access from Chrome makes it terrific..Version: 4.2019.42202
NavigationEveryone must remember, I’ve never worked on a computer in my life. I’m a “real newbie” at anything to do with a computer. I promise i will get better. At this point I am “learning on the fly”. I have to learn as I go, you just have to because everything is done via the computer and internet. I can’t even fill out an application on paper anymore, it all has to be done online. Anyway, just wanted to say that I am beginning to pick up a few things along the way and this app has honestly helped me so much, especially when it comes to importing my resume. I was lost before on this, but I’m a big girl now and can do it all by myself without having to have my kid show me how to do it EVERY SINGLE TIME!!! My kid is also appreciative of this app, just for that alone.
Again, thank you so much for making at least one thing in my life easier. I am having a very tough time right now but this app does relieve at least a little bit of stress knowing I can at least do one thing by myself..Version: 4.2017.45603
Glitches and annoyancesIt’s really annoying that you can’t upload files in the background, you can only continue uploading while your in the Google Drive app and it still doesn’t even do it when your phone is on sleep. and sometimes it randomly has to retry for no reason, and you should let us share multiple files with people at once instead of doing them individually, also even if you just go out of the app and to another app or even just to the home screen, then when you come back to Google Drive even if you’ve only been gone for literally one minute then it’ll either say “waiting” on your already previously partially uploaded file and sometimes it’ll start back at where it was but some very unfortunate times it’ll restart the entire upload for no reason, please fix this and most of all let them upload in the background, please!.Version: 4.2019.46202
Great Storage Option anywhere you Go!I have been using the 15GB google drive for years. I LOVE DRIVE! I can easily access my family’s files from anywhere, on any device. The add on options are helpful when I need them. I love the sharing option and how you can choose the individual’s privileges. It has come in handy many times when my husband is at work and has something to save, that I may need. Or my middle schooler forgot his homework on the table, so I scan it in on his drive, so he can access at school, and I don’t have to cart my toddler in to drop it off. When I need important documents on hand for various things, we just refinanced, the mortgage company loved that I said, “Hold on I have that right here. I’ll email it to you”. Highly recommend the program and so far my friends in the past year or two that use it after my recommendation love it. What would we do without Google Drive!!??.Version: 4.2018.46202
Well-Designed ApplicationAs the title very clearly stated, this is a fairly well designed application. However, writing and editing documents is difficult, partially because of the small screen, but also because of the layout of the document. You can't see the margins of the document and you also can't edit them. Changing fonts and other meticulous tasks are also quite difficult based on the size of the options. Lastly, when attaching documents to Gmail from Drive, you cannot select more than one document at a time, which means you have to from Gmail to Drive several times if you want to send more than one document in the same email. Overall, however, I see this as a well designed application, especially for document viewing/editing, and with very few flaws, I definitely recommend this application..Version: 4.2018.05202
ThanksYes you saw, I gave this app 4 stars. You guys are lucky because most of the time I give 2. Sooooo I have a suggestion
𝗙𝗜𝗡𝗔𝗟 𝗗𝗘𝗟𝗘𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡: I am so annoyed by how short deletion is. 30 days. One time I had something SUPER IMPORTANT saved for the next month. My sister DELETED IT. Then a few days later it told me “ October 13 your trash bin will be emptied” I just Xed it out because I look carefully what I don’t need before I put it in the trash. A month later i was going to turn in my SUPER IMPORTANT COLLEGE ESSAY, but there was a problem I went to google classroom and simply searched the name of the file. It didn’t show up. So I when to my drive and searched up the name. It showed no results. I look into my ‘recently opened’ thing and searched and searched. I couldn’t find it. I remembered I emailed it to my regular gmail account. I went there and when I pressed it it said “file not found or you don’t have permission to access this file” I had a mealtdown so thanks!
Thank you VERY MUCH!!!.Version: 4.2020.40205
Amazing, but there are some things missingSo, I have been using Google Drive — and Google in general — for a very long time now. Even on mobile, I have access to Google Docs, Google Slides, and Google Sheets as separate apps. However... there is no mobile app for Google Forms or Google Drawings. This is very annoying, because Google Forms on mobile Google Chrome can get very glitchy (same applies to Google Drawings). It is especially annoying because I use these two services MORE than Google Slides, which does have an app. On top of this, I also cannot create a Google Form or Google Drawing on mobile Google Drive, much less edit one. I would greatly appreciate it if Google Drawings and Google Forms could be made into their own mobile apps. I would even be perfectly fine with editing them in the Google Drive app. As long as I don’t have to use Google Chrome to use these two services on mobile, I’m happy. Thanks for taking the time to read this!.Version: 4.2021.20204
Good but...Using the workspace feature feels redundant on the app as workspace should be allowing me to access specific files easily, going from one to another fast and quick. However, when I try to use the files I’ve moved into the workspace, it will bring me to into another google app which does not give me access to the workspace that I created unless I go back to the drive app and relaunch workspace again, which in my opinion, makes workspace feel redundant on the google drive app.
I had the app when docs, sheets, and slides were all integrated into this app. I think the workspace feature would greatly benefit from this.
Drive is great as a “central hub” and I like how it is organized, but that organization feels (again) redundant if you have to switch between different files and different apps. Drive feels like a middle man that could be cut. And the only reason that it isn’t cut is that the other apps can only view their respective files (i.e. docs can only view documents)..Version: 4.2019.46202
What a relief!I recently switched from Mac to Chromebook, when my 2016 MacBook gave up and I was facing a $1300 setback to replace it. I also had issues with Apple’s Photo App which for example seems to be unable to detect duplicates, and would not give me a good option to prevent my iPhone from getting inundated with all my old pics.
So I canceled my iCloud subscription (which by the way Apple made pretty difficult to do) and transferred all my stuff to Google Drive.
First of all, I was amazed about the power of the search function. While Apple’s search more often than not would not find what I was looking for, here I was able to find old docs that I had completely forgotten about just by limiting the time frame, adding search criteria and the file format I was looking for.
Within an hour I had found all movies and most important, all duplicates, freezing some 50 GB of space.
I also lIke a lot the simplicity of the design, the perfect integration of all other functions, Google Docs, and Google Mail specifically and when it comes to writing’ which is what I mostly do, I just love the fact that you simply cannot forget to safe a doc with Google because it saves the moment you type it.
All in all, I am very very happy that I made the switch and loom forward to further advantages that I sure will find..Version: 4.2021.26201
Love this app / Google Docs!It’s been a game-changer for me! I use these tools for virtually all of my professional, personal, and volunteer projects now: from tracking treasurer expenses to writing my novel(s). Having everything easily and instantly available for simultaneous editing on each of my devices at once has been a dream come true.
Compared to other apps? The only other similar app I also use is Box—and Google apps works much more smoothly. Though Box works directly with Microsoft apps, which have many more features, Microsoft’s online apps are SLOW to load and that would make the fast-start and instant-access I’m gushing about in the previous paragraph impossible if I tried to use Box in the same way.
I would presume Dropbox has a similar suite of fast-access apps, but I’ve never tried any others but Google-docs, so I can’t compare..Version: 4.2018.09208
Stuck between redundant and awesomeDrive works great as the main app to house the files but there are a few changes that would make Drive amazing.
1.) Drive should function like an all inclusive program rather than a hub to connect to the separate programs.
EX: If I open a Google doc file I should have the option to access the full Google doc tools.. STOP MAKING NEW TABS AND SENDING ME TO GOOGLE DOCS EVERYTIME!
It should be an option to make a separate tab or window not protocol.
2.) The Drive Landing page should be customizable so you can see your docs, slides and excel knock off. 1 click makes it expand (like peek for iOS) and let you see all of the files the you can click the specific file or a 2nd click will open the app. This will prob need Java but it be worth it.
3.) There needs to be quick access between accounts or a way you can make something available on both accounts that is more intuitive than downloading and re-uploading.
If drive gives more functionality and essentially replaces the need for individual apps and programs, then it will be a great all-in-one otherwise it would be easier to scale back drive and just make it a simpleclean hub where you click on the file and it opens the doc or presentation in an edit mode.
Like an online hard drive.
Otherwise Drive is just straddling the fence between unnecessary and redundant..Version: 4.2017.47518
Praise to Google Drive!This app (and the website, too, of course) is amazing. You can create and easily organize docs (word), slides (PowerPoint), sheets (excel), and others with Drive. It’s not only for creating files, either. You can upload files of any type from your computer or device. Office files can instantly be converted to Drive files, too. Plus, add-ons can help you modify files even more effectively! And Drive can be accessed anywhere. It’s great for moving files cross-platform. Files can also be shared with other users easily for live, up-to-date collaboration. And it’s linked to a gmail account, but that’s another story. If the free 15GB of data isn’t enough for you, you can always pay for more. Overall, I find this app incredibly useful and strongly recommend it if you need free storage space..Version: 4.2018.09208
A step away from perfect file management.Fantastic tool for managing my field data, overall. Truly. A great piece of work—-with a two significant issues according to my use. The first is that it is much to difficult to download multiple pictures, videos, or files to my physical device from the app (two menus in), which is a necessity when I travel to remote regions without internet access. The second is that when you have thousands of files, they do not load all at once. I have to scroll to load.....and scroll....and scroll...making it very difficult to find what I need, rename files, or locate a specific piece of field data within the app. Also, the search is iffy for item details details, where I often put codes for my research on photos, videos, etc. Sometimes it searches these and sometimes it doesn’t. A reliable tag function would be supremely useful..Version: 4.2017.43506
Issue moving files and foldersI generally love Google drive but the iOS app used to be sooo much more user friendly when it came to moving items between folders. You used to be able to press on an item's icon, it would drop to the bottom of the screen, and then you could drag it right into to the folder you wanted. Now, every time you want to move any item, you have to select Move and then begin at the very beginning of your drive and click through every single folder until you find the one you want! Am extremely tedious step backward in design :-(
Please consider switching back to the more mobile friendly style of moving items that you used to have.
Please also add the ability to ADD TO a folder instead of totally moving an item into a folder... On computers, we can click Control and then the green Add button to add an item to a new folder while also keeping it in the original folder..Version: 4.2018.50205
Rapture-proofScripture tells us that the Lord will soon return for those who follow Him. I often worry about what will happen to my house, my dog and my car upon the Second Coming. But I no longer have to worry about my files, documents and photos because they are all Saved in my Google Drive. They are redeemed from the threat of corruption and are sanctified from their former, fallen, paper-based selves. They, too, can now experience Eternal Life. And I can rest assured that, should I need any of my earthly files in my Eternal Reward, they will be available on any of my devices, at any time, as long as there is decent Wi-Fi. I don't personally know if Google Drive will be available in the Other Place. But I'm sure folks there will have plenty of Microsoft products with which they can try and find out..Version: 4.2017.43506
Classroom technology wonder!I started using Google Drive about 2 years ago, starting small and quickly adding applications and lessons. Google Forms has become my sole source of homework for high school science classes. I have also converted some of my labs to Google Forms; I love the fact that students can add documents to the form. I have attached short videos to give students the ability to review or clarify directions. Sheets and Docs have many options for lessons and data analysis. Sheets has templates for grade books. Students can share data or written information to collaborate when working in groups. They have learned how to attach photos to Forms and Docs.
The only thing I have not figured out how to do is link the student grade in Sheets to a specific email address. Kind of like the old mail merge idea, but with the ability to let parents access current grades..Version: 4.2017.43506
Always stepping up in improvementsI would’ve given this app 5 stars but two things....Backup from my IPhone has been going for 12 hours now for 9000 items. Photos were not close to that number so I’m assuming duplicates where made and backed up in more than one folder. Also another suggestion would be to offer the optimize feature to customers when they perform the backup feature in order to compress the file before sending. If the files are compressed then transferring the data will speed process up tremendously.
Minor detail was I could not move files back into main after placed in folder nor find a back button/redo command (use Mac example of windows with arrows)
Other than that Google has the right idea with the Google applications presenting customers with the controls to manage online living.....Version: 4.2019.12208
Simple, secure and reliable but still not easy to work withWhen I need to send a volume of pictures, videos or documents, it is very easy to put in this cloud and forward the link to a specific folder that recipients can retrieve and share. It works for me, is there handy and secure. My only draw back is that I still have difficulties dealing with this application interface which I find not so intuitive. I recently had to upgrade storage because I could not load a big file even after deleting a lot of my stored stuff. The cost of storage with google is very reasonable, cheaper that the competition. At some point finally a warning popped up telling me that the file was too big. I did not know that Google drive also stores my mail and I need to do some house cleaning of my gmail to free space. There is room for improvement..Version: 4.2018.03203
I’m with the “stunning feat of humanity” guy (therutabega)I’m with the gentleman who wrote the “stunning feat of humanity” review (therutabega). I am a technical writer/editor, and I’ve seen many word processing programs, operating systems and storage options. This is simply the best at all three. He mentioned no more thumb drives — Remember all those contortions to remotely get past a firewall? Remember “syncing?” Maybe I’m just easily impressed, but I ~*still*~ marvel at how many of us walk around with a thin, pocket-sized device that serves as a: -> computer -> camera -> calendar -> gaming system -> clock -> bookshelf -> news source -> shopping mall -> high definition tv -> stereo music system — and oh yeah, a phone! In any event, Google Drive makes it a great deal easier to access and integrate many of these functions. What will they think of next?.Version: 4.2017.37510
Convenient way to take your work everywhereThe Drive has given our staff the ability to get work done even when we are not in the office. Our executive staff has full permissions to the documents, we can see who has looked at the documents and who has made any changes. Sometimes we are at different locations but we can look at documents and discuss their status, as long we have our phones or any computer. This creates time for us to visit our other buildings, meet with managers or take care of personal errands. In addition, we can look at large files which sometimes are rejected by email. Right now I am getting my car worked on while Writing a contract and others are helping to edit.
Awesome Technology 😀.Version: 4.2019.20206
IPhone version just added Privacy Screen featureThe iPad version allows you to require Touch ID to open the app to see your files. The iPhone version now has this option, preventing someone gaining access to all your files when the phone is unlocked just by opening the app. This however does nothing to fix the longstanding Google security defect that keeps every file you have ever opened in a “Recent” folder, forever, with no ability to clear that history or remove a file from the Recent list—so anyone watching you open this app at its Home screen will see all the images and files you have opened. I would give five stars to see Google fix that. They have received thousands of complaints on their user forums, but they have ignored this issue for years..Version: 4.2020.32203
May be the best, but not greatI’ve used Google drive for years. I needed a system to keep my files in sync across multiple computers and platforms, and it seems the best option. That said, the desktop version that resides on your laptop or computer is the best aspect is that allows you instant access using your native apps. However, it can literally take days to sync 30 to 50 GB between one computer and the cloud, even when all of the files have already been uploaded from another computer. That’s ridiculous and I have no idea why he doesn’t scan and identify all the common files dramatically faster.
Access to Google Drive via the web is critically important and is fully functional for all contemporary file types, but online search and organization of Drive is clunky and much slower than working offline, especially on a Mac..Version: 4.2020.30201
ReliableI really didn’t notice how much I have been relying on Google Drive until I noticed over a decade of files. My stuff has survived several iterations of Google Drive.
Some photos I thought would be lost when my computer was about to crash were backed up to an external hard drive, twice — SEAGATE — and both of those 1TB and 500 GB external HDs are none responsive, today. My photos may as well have been lost.
What saved me? My trusty Google Drive, which I used to blow off as “wait and see.” Well, it’s been 10 years and now I can say I swear by it.
I realize the NSA probably has access to everything on Google, and I’m not happy about that. However, I feel extremely confident that I have nothing to hide and I’m even more confident that my files won’t be lost.
But NSA, really it’s like someone looking underneath your skirt without you knowing when and if it has happened already, but all you can count on is your underwear is clean. It’s really creepy.
PS, I backup my files with Carbonite now. I’m done wasting money on another Seagate HD.
I pay 2.99 a month to Google for increased storage and it has been well worth the subscription. Bye, bye unreliable external hard drives..Version: 4.2017.47518
Could me amazingFirstly, Google Drive does a generally good job but it could be better. First, after you create a doc using the plus button it drops you back at home tab, not the same folder where you created it. Second, if you go look in the folder where you just created it many times it won’t appear there for a while which is confusing and frustrating as you don’t know what happened. Third, I think because Google wants to give fast response time it will sometimes show empty folders that are definitely not empty, and after some time you’ll see the contents - again frustrating and disconcerting. What I’d like to see are simple voice memo and notes options added to the plus sign. It could make a great job of that, especially as they retired the api that let other apps update the drive with notes/docs/voice memos..Version: 4.2019.32200
Great appThis app is perfect for organizing your writing and other things. All of your things can be easily accessed through a folder or through alphabetical organization, and so on. You can have as many folders as you like for all different subjects and editing is really easy! You can share your documents with others... it’s easy! Just type in their email. Comment on something you think should be fixed so you don’t have to ask them in person. :) all tools and setting are easy to find, so I definitely recommend this app for you! You can make slideshow presentations, google docs, and more! If you are looking for a way to easily organize, edit, and create your documents, then this is the app for you!.Version: 4.2018.22204
So CloseI love using google drive. It’s simple, effective, and free. Files are easily shared and group projects are a breeze when everyone’s work can be updated and commented on in real time. Google drive and all of its sub-services (docs, slides, sheets) are very easy and effective on the computer, however on mobile, they struggle. Having to switch between apps just to edit projects is more of a hassle than it might sound, it is very annoying when working and navigating between different folders and mediums. I would love to see google integrate docs, slides, etc. into the google drive app. This would mean less things to worry about and less confusion and complexity for mobile users. Other than the separation of the separate services into different apps, I love google drive and it’s features..Version: 4.2020.08201
The most useful platform I use, and the app is flawless.If I’m really honest, Google is the platform that runs my life. Calendars and mail are part of the core, but Drive is even more of a foundation. I have a scanner pushing all of my mail and important documents into a folder so I can search for them (“what’s the name of the IKEA mattress we bought two years ago?”). I seamlessly sync all of my nursing school files. My wife and I share planning docs and files for our house remodel. I guess there are competitors like Box and Dropbox, but none of them are as solid as Google. If the CDC can use Drive to sync Ebola combat efforts across Africa, I should be able to use it to keep my own stuff together.
My only request, as it has been for years, is to allow tags..Version: 4.2018.46202
Drive changed my worldDiscovering drive has been a game changer for me. As a community activist working with multiple environmental groups in Boston’s environmental justice communities, I don’t have a budget for IT.
Google Drive provides me with everything I need to conduct participatory action research via Google Forms, analyze data in Google Sheets, create documents and presentations with Google Docs and share via Gmail. As for the learning curve? Not bad at all. I have learned not to be intimidated by trying new components of this powerful tool. The simplicity of it as compared to Microsoft word and the office suite is surprising and takes a little getting used to LOL.
Drive has truly been a blessing. On top of this all, it is one of the most intuitive and easy to use office suites going!.Version: 4.2019.02201
AWESOME!!!From booking the experience to the end was very professional, exciting and informative. Adam was the gentleman that I spoke with outside our hotel, who provided great information on the experience. He made sure to be available for any questions. Great rep for their company. Once at the track, they prepare you for what to expect and what they expect to make sure your experience is the best. I had a great time, drove the F430-F1 with Hayden as my instructor. Hayden was extremely polite and professional. Let the instructor know what you’re looking to accomplish on the track, so he can cater to you’re interest for the most fun. What an awesome experience. If you’re looking to get the thrill of racing an exotic car, this is the company to do it through. HIGHLY recommended!.Version: 4.2018.24203
Is it possible to search within a file? Similar to Control + FI noticed recently when attempting to search within an extensive document for a keyword I was unable to pull up any type of search bar. I can do the simple control + F on a computer and that works just fine. On the iPad when I click on the three dots in the top right corner there is no search feature available. I switched to Google Drive because my company WiFi accepts Google Drive & not Dropbox. The main difference I have noticed is Dropbox provides the ability to scan in PDFs as well as search within the document. I’m not sure if I am missing something obvious when attempting to search within the document. Can you please shed some light?.Version: 4.2018.03203
OutperformsI'm using it across two desktops, a laptop, my tablet & phone. I've dialed in two partners at work and 7 acquaintances socially. No one can see things they're not supposed to see and the app outperforms MS OneDrive and Dropbox..Version: 4.2017.35501

UX needs improvementThe organization is weird. I like how I can share files but I can’t see all of my shared folders in one space. All I see are the separate files that were shared in the folder... not very helpful.Version: 4.2019.28203
