    Almost GREAT

    I 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.

    Honestly the best!

    Okay, I’ll have to admit it...THIS APP IS THE BEST! I’m in an acting show where the vocals and songs were used on this app and it plays really well! It never pauses randomly like other apps. We originally had to use Facebook manually to navigate our way to the vocals, but with this app I have to do 3 steps. 1. Open the app. 2. Click what file. 3. Click the song I wanna practice. I had to do 5 steps originally. 1. Go to Facebook. 2. Go to the secret group. 3. Find the tracks. 4– you should know the rest. If I would have to delete this app, I would rage and BREAK every device I own. Summary: This app is really helpful for saving documents unlike Google Docs where you actually have to wait a while for it to save and if you don’t, you have to type it all again. This app also loves you saving files, vocals, songs-ANYTHING. There might be problems with songs not loading, but I guess that depends on you’re internet strength. I hope you rate this a 5 star like I did!

    AMAZING

    I never give any app five stars, but this one deserves it. The google drive app lets you use google docs, slides, sheets, classroom, and more without WiFi!, say you are on a road trip or a train, or plane, and you want to write, or do something on google classroom. You would usually just go to safari (which on a plane you wouldn’t be able to access) and look up I google classroom. From there, you would click on the link and peruse your business. Using it on the web, can create distractions, and you might not even be able to be access the web if you don’t have WiFi at the time. With the app, (which is a great score because it is free!!) lets you access docs no matter where you are! It is an app so it can be accessed without interruptions, and blocks. I personally love this app as I am a writer. I simply click on the app, and magic! I can write down all of my thoughts and ideas, etc. This app is truly amazing and I 100% recommend you purchase it today!

    A stunning feat of humanity

    Yeah, I know that's big praise. But seriously, look at it. This is a full productivity suite I can use hopping back and forth among my phone, work laptop, wife's computer, my own two office machines -- whatevah, I want to see and work on any of my stuff, I jump on the nearest device and go to work. It's free and it works perfectly every time. It's kind of insane we can do all this, actually. I keep expecting I'll miss MS Office, especially Word's substantially more robust feature set, because I make a lot of documentation professionally and I depended on Office for many years. But it really hasn't happened. I use Google docs for everything and now I really depend on the universal accessibility Drive affords. I'm not transporting any more files on thumb drive, forget it. Life is easier, the birds are chirping. So thanks Google! I know you're making a mint off my small contribution to your Big Data collection. But what the heck, I wasn't using that anyway. And I am using this. Regards.

    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.

    Has become the essential tool in my office

    In 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!

    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?

    Handy Beyond Believe

    I’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.

    Navigation

    Everyone 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.

    Great App

    This 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 👍🏾

    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!!??

    Google has Abandoned Support and Compatibility for iPhone

    Drive has become totally useless on my 7plus. Started having streaming issues about 6 months ago. Most videos won’t play or stop part way through. I struggle to open photos most of the time. I don’t know what happened. Phone has been reset. Completely reset to factory. App has been deleted more than once and reinstalled. Every successive update gets worse and worse. I really think the reason is competition. Regardless of the numbers of Apple users, Google just doesn’t care as a priority about non-Android phones and making sure compatibility is there. These issues have been going on for so long I honestly feel like Google has just abandoned support for iPhone. As I was told from one Google employee, Drive is not meant to stream content (even though it’s my own and I PAY for storage). It’s simply meant as cloud storage. I have gone from limited use to now, after the latest update, not being able to stream any video or even open a photo from my account. This isn’t some third party created app...this is Google. I seriously can’t understand how this is possible.

    Well-Designed Application

    As 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.

    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).

    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.
