Google Drive is – as its motto “Keep everything. Share anything.” suggests – an app designed for you to be able to store all your files in one place, so that they can be accessed at any time and shared with others, if needed to.
So what makes it so great? I would say the fact that it is extremely easy to use; it has lots of features which include: using your Android tablet or phone to upload files to Google Drive , accessing videos, photos, documents and other files stored on Google Drive, sharing files with other users of this app or with your contacts. You can also make those files available for you to access when you are offline and manage those files.
It has this great feature which allows you to edit your files – and it is more than just something basic. For example, the documents editor offers lists, bold, italic, underline, alignment options, rudimentary colour tool and editing tables.
Google Drive’s sharing features are also pretty impressive, this app allowing you to send a file or send a link to download the file – I mean, how cool is that?
It’s also really useful for collaboration, whether it’s university work, work work or any other type of anything that requires collaboration. You can share documents, edit a word-like page where everyone can add their own input. You gotta love Google, seriously.
In all its greatness, Google Drive misses one thing – and that is, a password-protect feature – since it contains all our private files. Let’s hope that Google with take care of that sometime soon.
Regardless of this little leak in their metaphorical bucket, this app is pretty great, free and optimized for Android; download it here.
