Wayyyy better than iCloud.
by El_JEFFO on 2018/12/10 03:15
I cannot express how much I love Google drive. I use it everyday and has never failed me. 100 times better than iCloud.
Great for multiple devices or places
by Dojo rocks B on 2018/12/10 01:20
This is great because I can connect all my files to one app. I struggled before finding documents because some would be on my computer or iPad. Now I can find them quicker and anywhere. I do not always have something with me so I can sign into my account on any device and then all my files will be there. Good apps you should try: Google docs Google slides Google sheets Gmail Google chrome

A notification
by Archer The Wolf on 2018/12/09 03:37
There is a notification that I can’t get rid of and I do not know how to delete it. There is like a permanent “1” on the corner of the drive app on my iPhone

It’d be great if I could actually add people to a file through the app all the time, but most of the time, I can’t. It freezes that function entirely too often for my needs.

I’m not really a fan that in order to edit your documents you have to get a whole other app. It would be a lot more simple if you could read and edit all of your documents on one app.

Crashing even after updates & restarts
by Lau3253 on 2018/12/08 15:33
I am trying to help my sister wedding plan and being able to share documents with family is crucial. I also use the Drive app for my work documents when I’m on the road. Every time in the last week I’ve tried to open the app it immediately crash-closes. I’ve restarted my phone and just updated the app too and it’s still doing it. Very disappointing.

Tremendous Tool
by Billetreby on 2018/12/07 04:12
Of all the file storage and sync services, Google Drive utility is the best and most reliable. If the free storage is not enough for you, you can buy more. Additional extra space starts at less than $2 per month. None of the others can match the price or flexibility.

by DR Snell on 2018/12/06 15:13
Bring able to create, share, and then save documents makes planning and collaboration easy. Not having to switch back and forth between applications to get my work done is much appreciated. The collaboration feature of Google Docs saves so much time that the old “send, cut and paste, resend”over and over is thankfully in my rear view mirror! Having everything in one place, in my drive makes locating desired documents a breeze.

Drive is great!
by LaiaAndBC on 2018/12/06 13:04
I think drive is a great way to save your documents without worry as it automatically saves even when power cuts out unlike other document companies. This is also an amazing app for slides, and saving pictures. There system is advanced and that is why I rated it a 5. As a young student, I found this app very useful. A teacher can access your folders and your teacher can see the documents you have done for your class. I have been using this app for about three years and it has not disappointed me yet. I hope it serves you well too! Laia Guyard Suengas

Google Drive Saved My Marriage
by Kcnca on 2018/12/04 04:54
There was an emptiness in my life, that for 20 years I attributed to an unhappy marriage and kids whose mere existence was like nails on a chalkboard. No amount of alcohol, drugs, or hookers would fill that void. Many years and bouts of herpes scabs later, I had reached my wits-end and hired a divorce attorney. He suggested I look into Google Drive before proceeding with such a major decision, which I did and noticed immediate results. Within 20 seconds of using Google Drive, I realized I hadn’t wasted 20 years of my life in a sexless wasteland of a marriage. Rather, I wasted 20 years of my life using other substandard file storage and synchronization services. Google drive has complete transformed my marriage, and my relationship with my kids. Happily, I can say that today my life is much more organized and easily managed thanks to Google Drive. Oh, and my wife now has butt-herpes!

New to make it clear how to stop full resolution pAlways overflowing Google Drive from Google Photos
by kevk74 on 2018/12/03 03:11
I JUST got done figuring how to stop photos from overflowing my iCloud 5GB and now my 15GB of Google Drive keeps loading with more full resolution photos when I clear space. I DON’T want to stop syncing optimized photos (wish I owned a PIXEL XL like my partner sometimes to get unlimited full resolution in Google Photos itself) but unfortunately with Android having one half and Microsoft having the other, the rest to the “hand off” and syncing of photos to my Mac, notes to my Mac, so minute I walk in the door I can sit down and everything is already there. THEN, I still don’t have to touch my iPhone b/c I can text from my Mac, answer and make calls from my Mac etc. I’m just not ready for a Chrome OS laptop world, so I am stuck preferring ANY Pixel XL (WITHOUT A NOTCH) over an iPhone but unable to ever give up my MacBook Pro, so the story continues. I “think” I fixed the Google Drive overflow today, but I’ve yet to prove it and I had to google instructions so the GUI was NOT naturally intuitive enough to stop without help, my biggest complaint.
Reverts to older versions without saving the new ones when doc is closed
by wolfcraft gaming on 2018/12/03 02:34
I have used this app for school a lot and 3 times this year it has reverted back to the version I had before I did all the work. This is especially annoying when it happens on a hour’s worth of edits only to revert without me knowing and me getting a C- for not making any revisions. Tonight I had to do 35 minutes worth of research for homework and everything I saved to the document was lost to the old template I made in school. This only happens on the IPad as far as I know but please fix this, it is killing me.

The most useful platform I use, and the app is flawless.
by Aaron Mason on 2018/12/02 17:31
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.

Heart skipped a beat
by [18k] on 2018/05/12 10:42
I’ve been using Google Drive for about 2 years now. I needed something to replace iCloud. I love the fact there is no limitations when you upload. Just now I tried to open a video file to preview and somehow it showed a corrupted play button. My heart dropped and all I had to do was close the app and restart it. It worked fine. The only reason why I’m using Google Drive is so that my files aren’t ever going to get corrupt on me. Even if I send a copy to my camera roll I’ll need it to show the exact date from when it’s been uploaded or taken. Perfectly, the app does just that. I’m happy to use Google Drive for all the files. Being a freelance photographer and cinematographer I’d recommend this app to anyone. Please don’t change anything within the app to make it difficult, or corrupt any of the files. Update: saving photo to camera roll doesn’t show original date taken. It shows the day I save to camera roll. Uploads duplicates (sometimes), uploading a large amount of photos crashes the app, uploading shows the wrong number of uploads. Update: Saving a photo or video slightly decreases the resolution. We should be able to upload a photo or video with the resolution it was taken then saving it exactly how we upload it.
Great for schools to use
by Casual Tetris player on 2017/11/18 21:07
I can easily check in with my students by creating "shared" folders. I have my own folders for each class hour I teach and each student has their own "shared" folder to me. Every assignment is to be done in this shared folder which I can access on my own screen and communicate via comments without standing over their shoulder. This gives accountability that students are on task and not hopping to a new browser, auto saves their work, folders can be shared/viewed by parents so parents know if their student is up to date with assignments, and gives me the luxury to have a paperless system-no more student claims of "I turned it in!". Clearly I like Docs as a result of teaching Langage Arts but we use slides, and students have their own websites by using "sites" which we use for facilitating student led conferences. This helps students be better prepared for future job interviews and practice presentation skills. The accessibility to view past versions of work is key to know when edits have been made to projects and lets students easily collaborate for group projects. I am SO GLAD our school has chosen to use Google Drive. I feel it's the best fit for both teachers and students to interact in this era that combines education and innovation.
How do you judge a drive?
by Moygarra on 2018/03/16 09:13
Say it’s success is dependent upon server or is: So google would make ya Believe they have one up on everybody else. And they should have one up then everybody else because they been around so long and if you seen all the infrastructure and the underpinnings and me in the network that makes things go around so as a drive for you wanna put your stuff there’s got to be Solid and not going to float away during a big storm so Google drive that was a virtual drive and as of that virtual drive it’s not anything that you can well if that’s ever goes away so drive and that’s the hard part about it because if you don’t give a look up in your system you don’t know what do you have any of the right availability of actually seeing it that creates two problems one the actual space with your hard drive we have to exist for you to have a double drives and to the sink properties it would belong to those documents on your hard drive versus those that are out there in the cloud or in a drive but on a cloud so those are the complicating to happen there in the summer hard and fast rules about that and some different lip service levels of agreements that are now part of the Infrastructure in progress.
Best Back Up For All Types of Documents From Pictures To Important Files
by snugz030914 on 2018/01/16 21:41
I have been using Google drive for a while now sometimes I don’t even realize the pictures or files that I need are right there at the tips of my fingertips just by logging into Google Drive from anywhere and it has been a lifesaver more than once in terms of looking for something I needed and I find it! Also many moments and memories via pictures; I thought I had lost forever, but realize are stored right there safe and sound in my google drive! The safety and security are on point and overall...thus far Google Drive is Awesome! It also alerts you for each and every sign in attempt on any device and periodically prompts user to verify and conduct security checks for device sign in and activity review ensuring that everything is done by you the user and also that only you have access to ALL YOUR Information. Top it all off, it’s absolutely FREE! No fees, as of yet, but even if they were to charge for this service it would be well worth the monetary cost, for the peace of mind it provides! THANKS GOOGLE DRIVE!!! Keep it Up! Much Appreciated especially by users who may not be as tech savvy as the newer generation of users! THANK YOU!!!

Picture this: by my office desk lies a Windows 7 computer, antiquated by today's standards, and nevertheless I can use the google chrome browser, and with my Gmail account I begin writing a document, obviously adding data culled from other web sites. I rise from my desk chair, and begin the daily commute home. In the bus, using my Bluetooth wireless headset and my smartphone, I listen to some music from Google Play, while opening said document, which I previously saved to Google Drive, and continue my work, not wasting precious time. When I get home, after unplugging myself from the headset, I am greeted by my loved ones. After some quality time, I decide to lie in bed. I reach for my tablet, stored in the drawer of the bedside table. Once again, Google Drive fulfills its promise, and effortlessly I open the document, proof reading it to correct and polish it. When I want, I can leave it so tomorrow I begin the process again. Simple and convenient are the qualities that come to my mind when I think of Google Drive.
Google is awesome
by M&L5 on 2018/06/14 17:51
Google is awesome I always recommended because it has so many benefits like for example gives you 15GB for summer free no extra cause except if you want more also it saves your photos from your phone to google photos not only that but also it has a program similar to Microsoft but it’s not which is called google docs, excel, PowerPoint, and spread sheets every time your working on your document it automatically saves your what your typing so you don’t have to worry if the internet went out n it didn’t save don’t worry google got your back not only it backs up your document every second but also you can share it with other people the documents you create and keeps track of what everyone is doing in the document and also theirs a shareable link that u can send to everyone without making an effort then signing into their google or if they don’t have google account it is awesome and then when you start typing an assignment in Spanish it corrects your Spanish or any language you are typing
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
by therutabega on 2017/09/24 14:19
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!
by CurlyQTina on 2018/03/11 18:14
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
by Papa Teter on 2018/01/28 09:20
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!

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.
Google has Abandoned Support and Compatibility for iPhone
by M_seattle on 2018/03/13 05:34
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.
Great Storage Option anywhere you Go!
by SLBMarrow on 2018/11/28 18:23
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!!??
Well-Designed Application
by Jacob's Reviews on 2018/02/23 00:34
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.
Stuck between redundant and awesome
by Jesseondrums on 2017/12/12 01:36
Drive 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.
It’s good but could be better.
by Zansberree on 2017/11/06 05:26
I downloaded this because I was having issues with my iPhone and I was afraid of losing my photos. I was happy with the unlimited storage, however I have close to 8000 photos. It took me a very long time to go through and click each picture individually because there is not a “select all” button. This is highly inconvenient and time consuming for anyone who is using the app for the first time and trying to backup the photos they already have. I know not everyone has as many as I do but even if I only had 100 photos that still would have taken a while. Then to make things better (sarcasm) when I finally finished selecting all of my photos and then hit upload, it said “uploading”, and then it just stopped and went to the homepage. It did not upload ANY of my photos. Also I had to leave the room for a moment and my screen locked, when I got back on all of the photos I had selected, had been unselected and I had to start all over. Please fix these issues.
Love this app / Google Docs!
by Shaun M2 on 2018/03/19 13:54
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.
Google Drive Saved My Marriage
by Kcnca on 2018/12/04 04:54
There was an emptiness in my life, that for 20 years I attributed to an unhappy marriage and kids whose mere existence was like nails on a chalkboard. No amount of alcohol, drugs, or hookers would fill that void. Many years and bouts of herpes scabs later, I had reached my wits-end and hired a divorce attorney. He suggested I look into Google Drive before proceeding with such a major decision, which I did and noticed immediate results. Within 20 seconds of using Google Drive, I realized I hadn’t wasted 20 years of my life in a sexless wasteland of a marriage. Rather, I wasted 20 years of my life using other substandard file storage and synchronization services. Google drive has complete transformed my marriage, and my relationship with my kids. Happily, I can say that today my life is much more organized and easily managed thanks to Google Drive. Oh, and my wife now has butt-herpes!
Great when it works
by MathChicklet on 2018/01/27 21:16
I’m a college professor and love that I can access my files from anywhere. I mostly save teaching notes and answer keys that I use in the classroom during a class. The only problem is quite often it takes forever to open a file, or if it opens the file, pinch to zoom won’t work and I’ll just see a white screen or worse, it’ll just force close so you’ll see the document for about 2 seconds and then your back on your home screen. Sometimes you can only see 4 of 10 pages. All of these problems have happened on my iPhone 5s and still occur even now on my iPhone 8 plus. It’s been going on for several years, off and on thru many different updates including this one in January 2018; it’s quite aggravating that it’s not dependable. If you absolutely must have something, DO NOT depend on this app. Have a backup plan. Oh and in case you’re wondering, not only does this happen on the colleges wifi, it happens at home on my very reliable high speed Verizon FIOS connection.
A step away from perfect file management.
by AlissaAnthropologista on 2017/11/29 01:17
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.
Great but......
by xX_Pablo420_Xx on 2018/09/27 04:49
My experience with drive has been nothing short of magnificent throughout my usage. I have a plethora of memories in which I needed drive to perform to perfection and not only did drive deliver, but did so in such a fashion that would make every app developer who worked on it proud and every app developer who didn’t jealous. The beginning of the issue stems from one unfaithful day in which drive decided that today was not a good day to perform the task I needed to. Instead of uploading a video drive decided to act like it did and then not process the video leading to crushing negative repercussion in a deep emotional, mental and physical level. The sheer amount of disturbance my mind felt as I realize that the thing I trusted most in this world had failed me was excruciatingly painful. However this should not take away from the overall performance which I believe to be almost not short of exemplary. 4/5!
Praise to Google Drive!
by ThunderPhoenix4 on 2018/03/24 18:30
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.
Classroom technology wonder!
by julesklett on 2017/11/24 18:20
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.
Helped me recover old photos
by everynameistaken.shdiejdn on 2018/11/19 19:47
So awhile back, I had an iPod 5 gen and one day it shut off completely and I lost all my photos in it because I couldn’t unlock it, and I forgot to save them to iCloud or google photos. It’s been about 3 years since I’d last seen them. But today I realize that I could still access the photos with my iPod to my computer, so I connected my iPod to my computer and opened the file with all my photos, and I dragged all of them to Google drive and now all I have to do is upload them to Google Photos. Then I will have had all my photos back for my iPod and I’m really grateful for this app. It has brought back so many memories and old photos, looking at some of them made me tear up, and this app is really simple to use, in your phone or computer, definitely recommend using it!!
Terrible mobile download quality
by Da Ar on 2018/10/16 04:30
I've been using Drive and Dropbox simultaneously for a while now. One of the biggest and very critical reasons I don't use Drive much is due to the fact that the image downloads to a mobile device are terribly compressed. I conducted a number of tests over multiple devices between both Dropbox and Drive with the exact same files and every single time I landed the same results. The image downloaded to a mobile device (no difference on desktop or laptop) reflected a drastically reduced quality when uploaded and downloaded from Drive vs Dropbox. Regardless of how the image was selected for download via Drive, I always had the same outcome, a disappointingly low quality download of what was otherwise a very crisp and hi res professional quality capture. I'm very surprised that this hasn't been brought up more and addressed but it seems most people aren't noticing how terribly compressed the images are and how badly it is impacting the quality.
great on PC- poor on mobile
by rrosered on 2018/03/08 19:21
Mobile Drive’s primary function is uploading and sharing. The supposed need to download other apps (Docs, Slides, etc) simply to edit and have a better handle over one’s documents is ludicrous, storage-eating, and annoying. PLEASE merge your apps into one, else get rid of the Drive app entirely. There is no need to download more than 3 apps of the same function. When accessed from a computer or laptop, however, Drive is truly an efficient step further into the modern age. It is the easiest and most intuitive storage and document-creating app I have seen, and is, most of the time, made good use out of. As aforementioned, it is the necessity to download multiple apps which has driven me from Drive (no pun intended) when I’m on the go. Make Drive all-document-inclusive as it’s web counterpart (or allow web Drive to be accessed fully in-browser without needing to download an app!) and it will become a very hefty and durable app! Until then, two stars. :(
Google Drive is awesome!
by Marsh Waha on 2018/02/27 14:17
I absolutely love Google Drive, I love the fact that I can access documents from anywhere just on my computer just online but also from a tablet or phone. It’s probably one of the best things to have. It’s super easy to use, you can save PDFs you can convert them to Google documents even save slideshows, spreadsheets, and do much more. It’s help me save a lot of space on my computer, because the hard drives 10 to get clogged up with documents and data and I really do like the fact that I can use Google drive to save my documents and put them somewhere safe. You can also upload your documents and Excel sheets Microsoft or presentation slides. Google Drive allows you do so much with documents, you can even upload pictures too. Although for pictures I use Google Photos.
Rapture-proof
by Downboynow on 2017/12/28 11:55
Scripture 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.
Simple, secure and reliable but still not easy to work with
by Mr.racsr on 2018/01/28 16:48
When 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.
Google Drive Review
by emma_is_da_bom on 2018/01/27 16:01
I 100% recommend this app. It’s SOO easy to use ; and instead of saving it every time you edit something, google drive saves it automatically! The color changing button and font-changing button and everything else is very simple to use. You can add transitions to make things cooler, and there are different templates like MLA, science report, and photo album, etc. You can make a slideshow, document, or site, and many other types of presentations. You also can also mostly-easily upload things onto google drive (it’s lot easier than other apps like it!) You can also share/send your presentations them to other people with an account . If you want a simple, easy-to-use presentation-making app, this is the PERFECT app to use!👍😃
Google pulling ahead.........
by Robert Aymond on 2017/11/21 22:59
Looks like Google is emerging as the dominant multi-mode program when you consider how many applications they have that allows any person to accomplish most every task most people need to perform both personal and business tasks. I just spent 2 hours reviewing many apps in Google’s arsenal and didn’t see all of their programs, but the ones I did see were solid, well-thought-out, easily learned & very simple & fast to import data from the apps I’ve been using forever, into their much more useful and helpful set of programs. It’s great to have one app that has many layers of useful apps which all work in unison, saving time and many steps it took the old way, as I switched from app to app cutting and pasting data from one to another. Great platform Google!
Not optimized for music
by rockerrchick13 on 2018/04/24 06:35
I understand this is multipurpose storage, and if I wasn't using this to share audio files (of original music) with my band members, I'd be rating this 5 stars. Very sleek and intuitive app. My only issues are when I'm listening to recordings of original songs that my band shares using the drive. When I'm testing a mix sometimes I like to hear the same song on repeat or cycle through multiple songs. Basically, it is frustrating not having Playlist features for folders with audio files. I have to move tracks over to my iTunes app (later, on my computer) to use Playlist features that make listening easy. I know this is iffy territory for a file sharing app because you don't want people to be sharing files they don't own. But it would seriously help musicians so much!
I’m with the “stunning feat of humanity” guy (therutabega)
by Fefur on 2017/10/09 12:36
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?
Please combine all google drive apps
by Erika Nahkala on 2017/12/23 22:27
I like google drive. I use it a lot. But the mobile version does not please me. I like the setup of the drive app and the organization, but i don’t like that you have to download the other apps just to edit your documents, slideshows, and spreadsheets. it feels inefficient and scattered. it’s a waste of space on my phone. the google drive app is nothing more than a glorified window: look but not touch etc etc. and the individual apps (docs etc) are more difficult and painful to navigate than necessary. even when i click through my various folders, and get to a document, once i exit out of that document i still have to go through all of the folders again to find another doc in the same folder. please merge your apps. like i said, i like the organization of google drive but i feel that the entire system would be much more efficient and effective if everything could truly be accessed from one place. thank you.
Reliable
by Mommygate on 2017/12/21 21:31
I 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.
The most useful platform I use, and the app is flawless.
by Aaron Mason on 2018/12/02 17:31
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.
AWESOME!!!
by John50B on 2018/06/26 20:51
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!
Great app
by Owl7366974 on 2018/06/09 15:12
This 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!
Loved it til this update
by laughing wolfe on 2017/10/18 18:58
Seriously, Google? I don't think you're minding this upgrade. It's been a few weeks and though I have iOS 10.3.3 (iPhone 5), after I click upgrade your app tells me I need 10.3.3 for this upgrade, but it can give me the latest I can use instead. After trying that 6 times over a few weeks, the counter still says I need to upgrade. Talk about wrong messaging! Ugh. Every time I open my phone it tells me I to upgrade but I need the iOS for it which I have. It's like being subjected to waitstaff that repeatedly asks how's the meal: it's annoying, and regardless of the quality of the meal you really don't want to go back. Sad to say it's affected my use of the app- I'm staying away for the duration 'til you get your stuff together. Three stars cause you were fine before even though you lost it with this one.
Great Service

I’ve been using Google Drive for around 5 years now and I’ve only had positive experiences with it. I mainly use it as a sort of library now to store various PDFs, articles, and writings that I want to easily access or share with others. For the longest time I used it for collaborative spreadsheets to manage data with my peers or to centralize a lot of information into one file that could be easily accessed by others. It worked well and the best part of it was that it was free. I’d highly recommend this to any college students that want to centralize their course work or notes that do not use iCloud Drive. I use both for my work and it makes everything so much easier to keep track of and access in an instant if needed. I’ve also used it for my tutoring since I can see the information people are struggling with without having to make time for an appointment. It enables quick feedback in many different forms. The possibilities with the tools they provide you with are endless. This is an app that is definitely worth the download for anyone seeking to improve their productivity and ease of access.
Dear google please fix latest update not compatible with iPad
by Doralisa Melendez on 2017/10/04 21:21
Seriously google? I am unable to update my first GEN iPad mini and I have the latest iOS 9.3.5 and now all of a sudden it's saying it requires iOS 11 are you freaking kidding me? so I went back to the App Store and checked what version of iOS is required and it says you need iOS 9 so why is the new update saying that it requires iOS 11 that's bull crap that is one major error come on Google you need to fix this bug ASAP right now I use Google drive all the time for work and this update is preventing me from accessing very important files and the only way for me to access these files I have to use my iPhone 6 because since it is updated to iOS 11 but not my dear old first GEN iPad mini this needs to be fixed Google because it is causing compatibility issues with a lot of older Gen iOS devices and I swear if I lose my job I will seriously sue Google for this bull crap😠👎🏼
Insists on installing iOS 11 version with iOS 10
by DanielJosLeary on 2017/10/04 20:01
Had to delete the Google Drive app because the App Store keeps alerting me that there is a new version to download. Except this version requires iOS 11 which I don't and won't have. This should be fine, because the App Store has the ability to see that I have iOS 10, so it skips the iOS 11 required updates after a few comfirming clicks. But this is not the case with Google Drive. It tells me the update is there, I try to download it, it tells me I only have iOS 10, so it downloads the last iOS 10 version, then the cycle starts over again. It rediculous because I've re-downloaded the same iOS 10 version of the app four times before I realized what was happening. I'm sure this is a flaw of this particular app and they way the comptible versions are listed in the app store because I have not had this problem with any other app, which has an iOS 11 only version.
Great!
by nw1lson on 2018/10/04 03:14
I’m a Mac user normally but I used Drive today for the first time to upload a couple hundred photos to share with a client. I didn’t find it very user friendly — that is, it didn’t seem self-explanatory, really. I looked around for a while to find out how exactly to create a folder, move files to the folder and then share it with the client. However, I looked up the instructions and then I was like, “Oh, duh, ok.” Now that I know how to use it, it will be much easier and eventually become second nature just like anything else I use. It’s just the initial use that frustrated me. Nothing is obvious or in-your-face, which is very useful when using for the first time. But I have no qualms with the app, really. Once I figured out how to use it, it worked great.

Great app.
by kiowamtp on 2018/11/04 21:38
Perfect for any storage need, organization and work flow. Love using Google’s products over any other competitors, it just works! My only complaints though is that sometimes I am not able to download a photo to my phone from drive. I’m not sure why. This is quite frustrating and I wish there was a big button on the menu that just says “save to camera roll”. Otherwise it’s great for school or regular work, I appreciate the care for design and functionality. I use Google slides and Google docs all the time. As a photographer it is also super helpful. The quality in images can reduce when transferring from one device to another, which is quite annoying, but still good enough quality for almost all uses.
Best going today!!!
by Rockosobe on 2018/05/06 18:19
The ease of use is one of the many reasons I love this app it is as simple as pick a picture, tap icon, put in folder ( you can name a folder) and tap upload BOOM Your done!!! You can rename your pic or video and create many folders and name it to whatever you want!! Saves tons of space on your phone and can access it from whatever device your on!! Plenty of storage space to just keep adding!! You can’t go wrong with it!! If you want something easy to use and want to save space on your phone and have a place to store all your photos and videos and free then this is for you but if you don’t want any of that then it’s not for you!!!
No longer 5-star
by t0ny_juni0r on 2017/11/10 04:21
The removal of passcode/Touch ID lock is a big let down and a HUGE deal to me. I don't care if I can lock my iPhone altogether, sometimes I unlock my phone and hand it over to someone to use it and I have no problem with them accessing anything except Google Drive. Now I have to deal with a new problem because Google removed passcode lock and Drive on my phone is accessible to anyone who uses my phone while it's unlocked. Again, no, I don't want to lock my phone altogether. Below was my initial 5-star review, which I take back. ______________________________ I use Drive to backup everything. From documents to mp3 files, photos and videos. I could use Google Photos for unlimited photo and video backup, but I've been using Drive for a while and find it more intuitive, simpler and easier to use. Besides, I'd rather have all sorts of file types in one place. Also, the free 15 gigs are enough so far.
Wonderful exploration
by Wonderful exploration on 2018/02/15 02:07
I might have thought that I would’ve have gotten the tool I needed to backup my files, but I made my info increase, and decided to try a helpful tool to keep great storage. I was not in the mind of this tool, I would’ve thought I would not be able to access my info when I have to, but this tool has taken me to a wonderful point in my life that I am inspired to use a data storage and other useful operations to make my life a lot easier. I can see that this tool then brings me to a level as a genius when there are resources to store and review in this tool. This was a vast majority in my life right now, and I hope to continue the use of this tool!
Beyond “F” grading!!!
by grey4runner87 on 2018/11/15 21:53
OneDrive and Dropbox is much better than useless, data eater and not orderly Google Drive. Had to wait for thumbnail to show a little picture before click on for a full size picture. So friggin’ time consuming searching for one measly picture. Plus it messed up your timeline by putting all the same dates on picture the day you either update or upload when it is not! What a moron that Google is! If iPhone does have ability of having mirco SD cards, I would tell Google to kiss my bottom and never looking back because mirco SD cars show the picture immediately! OneDrive and Dropbox...you only have to wait less than a second for the thumbnail show a little picture unlike GoogleDrive which is average 8 seconds delay for each friggin’ thumbnail!! Not impressed! Got super fast internet and great iPhone. So it is GoogleDrive’s end itself that messed the whole thing or poorly executed software.

I cannot express how much I love Google drive. I use it everyday and has never failed me. 100 times better than iCloud.
Great for multiple devices or places
by Dojo rocks B on 2018/12/10 01:20
This is great because I can connect all my files to one app. I struggled before finding documents because some would be on my computer or iPad. Now I can find them quicker and anywhere. I do not always have something with me so I can sign into my account on any device and then all my files will be there. Good apps you should try: Google docs Google slides Google sheets Gmail Google chrome

A notification
by Archer The Wolf on 2018/12/09 03:37
There is a notification that I can’t get rid of and I do not know how to delete it. There is like a permanent “1” on the corner of the drive app on my iPhone
Sometimey
by Reka B on 2018/12/09 02:13
It’d be great if I could actually add people to a file through the app all the time, but most of the time, I can’t. It freezes that function entirely too often for my needs.

Crashing even after updates & restarts
by Lau3253 on 2018/12/08 15:33
I am trying to help my sister wedding plan and being able to share documents with family is crucial. I also use the Drive app for my work documents when I’m on the road. Every time in the last week I’ve tried to open the app it immediately crash-closes. I’ve restarted my phone and just updated the app too and it’s still doing it. Very disappointing.

Tremendous Tool
by Billetreby on 2018/12/07 04:12
Of all the file storage and sync services, Google Drive utility is the best and most reliable. If the free storage is not enough for you, you can buy more. Additional extra space starts at less than $2 per month. None of the others can match the price or flexibility.

by DR Snell on 2018/12/06 15:13
Bring able to create, share, and then save documents makes planning and collaboration easy. Not having to switch back and forth between applications to get my work done is much appreciated. The collaboration feature of Google Docs saves so much time that the old “send, cut and paste, resend”over and over is thankfully in my rear view mirror! Having everything in one place, in my drive makes locating desired documents a breeze.

Drive is great!
by LaiaAndBC on 2018/12/06 13:04
I think drive is a great way to save your documents without worry as it automatically saves even when power cuts out unlike other document companies. This is also an amazing app for slides, and saving pictures. There system is advanced and that is why I rated it a 5. As a young student, I found this app very useful. A teacher can access your folders and your teacher can see the documents you have done for your class. I have been using this app for about three years and it has not disappointed me yet. I hope it serves you well too! Laia Guyard Suengas

Google Drive Saved My Marriage
by Kcnca on 2018/12/04 04:54
There was an emptiness in my life, that for 20 years I attributed to an unhappy marriage and kids whose mere existence was like nails on a chalkboard. No amount of alcohol, drugs, or hookers would fill that void. Many years and bouts of herpes scabs later, I had reached my wits-end and hired a divorce attorney. He suggested I look into Google Drive before proceeding with such a major decision, which I did and noticed immediate results. Within 20 seconds of using Google Drive, I realized I hadn’t wasted 20 years of my life in a sexless wasteland of a marriage. Rather, I wasted 20 years of my life using other substandard file storage and synchronization services. Google drive has complete transformed my marriage, and my relationship with my kids. Happily, I can say that today my life is much more organized and easily managed thanks to Google Drive. Oh, and my wife now has butt-herpes!

It’s going to make Slide shows and paragraphs with it but it deletes my writing and add random spaces for no reason and it’s really annoying
Good but could be better
by Jason C ATX on 2018/12/03 05:29
It does what I need it to do (for the most part) but the app is super slow and glitchy. Sometimes I can’t get audio files to play or make them available offline. I just get the “Error. Try again later” message, which is really frustrating.
Red sign of unread file
by mf1352 on 2018/12/03 05:22
Many things are great with google Drive; however, when it shows in red I have a new shared/unread file and I have opened that file, Drive still displays the red sign for unread file.
New to make it clear how to stop full resolution pAlways overflowing Google Drive from Google Photos
by kevk74 on 2018/12/03 03:11
I JUST got done figuring how to stop photos from overflowing my iCloud 5GB and now my 15GB of Google Drive keeps loading with more full resolution photos when I clear space. I DON’T want to stop syncing optimized photos (wish I owned a PIXEL XL like my partner sometimes to get unlimited full resolution in Google Photos itself) but unfortunately with Android having one half and Microsoft having the other, the rest to the “hand off” and syncing of photos to my Mac, notes to my Mac, so minute I walk in the door I can sit down and everything is already there. THEN, I still don’t have to touch my iPhone b/c I can text from my Mac, answer and make calls from my Mac etc. I’m just not ready for a Chrome OS laptop world, so I am stuck preferring ANY Pixel XL (WITHOUT A NOTCH) over an iPhone but unable to ever give up my MacBook Pro, so the story continues. I “think” I fixed the Google Drive overflow today, but I’ve yet to prove it and I had to google instructions so the GUI was NOT naturally intuitive enough to stop without help, my biggest complaint.
Reverts to older versions without saving the new ones when doc is closed
by wolfcraft gaming on 2018/12/03 02:34
I have used this app for school a lot and 3 times this year it has reverted back to the version I had before I did all the work. This is especially annoying when it happens on a hour’s worth of edits only to revert without me knowing and me getting a C- for not making any revisions. Tonight I had to do 35 minutes worth of research for homework and everything I saved to the document was lost to the old template I made in school. This only happens on the IPad as far as I know but please fix this, it is killing me.

The most useful platform I use, and the app is flawless.
by Aaron Mason on 2018/12/02 17:31
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.

by Benjamin Brink on 2018/12/01 19:23
Because Apple hasn't opened its vintage ipads and friends to open source developers, there are real limits for aging ipad technology. Google's proactive support of fundamental apps on all devices, like vintage ipads, gives ipads new life and helps prevent toxic tech waste. Thank you, Googlers!

Heart skipped a beat
by [18k] on 2018/05/12 10:42
I’ve been using Google Drive for about 2 years now. I needed something to replace iCloud. I love the fact there is no limitations when you upload. Just now I tried to open a video file to preview and somehow it showed a corrupted play button. My heart dropped and all I had to do was close the app and restart it. It worked fine. The only reason why I’m using Google Drive is so that my files aren’t ever going to get corrupt on me. Even if I send a copy to my camera roll I’ll need it to show the exact date from when it’s been uploaded or taken. Perfectly, the app does just that. I’m happy to use Google Drive for all the files. Being a freelance photographer and cinematographer I’d recommend this app to anyone. Please don’t change anything within the app to make it difficult, or corrupt any of the files. Update: saving photo to camera roll doesn’t show original date taken. It shows the day I save to camera roll. Uploads duplicates (sometimes), uploading a large amount of photos crashes the app, uploading shows the wrong number of uploads. Update: Saving a photo or video slightly decreases the resolution. We should be able to upload a photo or video with the resolution it was taken then saving it exactly how we upload it.
Great for schools to use
by Casual Tetris player on 2017/11/18 21:07
I can easily check in with my students by creating "shared" folders. I have my own folders for each class hour I teach and each student has their own "shared" folder to me. Every assignment is to be done in this shared folder which I can access on my own screen and communicate via comments without standing over their shoulder. This gives accountability that students are on task and not hopping to a new browser, auto saves their work, folders can be shared/viewed by parents so parents know if their student is up to date with assignments, and gives me the luxury to have a paperless system-no more student claims of "I turned it in!". Clearly I like Docs as a result of teaching Langage Arts but we use slides, and students have their own websites by using "sites" which we use for facilitating student led conferences. This helps students be better prepared for future job interviews and practice presentation skills. The accessibility to view past versions of work is key to know when edits have been made to projects and lets students easily collaborate for group projects. I am SO GLAD our school has chosen to use Google Drive. I feel it's the best fit for both teachers and students to interact in this era that combines education and innovation.
How do you judge a drive?
by Moygarra on 2018/03/16 09:13
Say it’s success is dependent upon server or is: So google would make ya Believe they have one up on everybody else. And they should have one up then everybody else because they been around so long and if you seen all the infrastructure and the underpinnings and me in the network that makes things go around so as a drive for you wanna put your stuff there’s got to be Solid and not going to float away during a big storm so Google drive that was a virtual drive and as of that virtual drive it’s not anything that you can well if that’s ever goes away so drive and that’s the hard part about it because if you don’t give a look up in your system you don’t know what do you have any of the right availability of actually seeing it that creates two problems one the actual space with your hard drive we have to exist for you to have a double drives and to the sink properties it would belong to those documents on your hard drive versus those that are out there in the cloud or in a drive but on a cloud so those are the complicating to happen there in the summer hard and fast rules about that and some different lip service levels of agreements that are now part of the Infrastructure in progress.
Best Back Up For All Types of Documents From Pictures To Important Files
by snugz030914 on 2018/01/16 21:41
I have been using Google drive for a while now sometimes I don’t even realize the pictures or files that I need are right there at the tips of my fingertips just by logging into Google Drive from anywhere and it has been a lifesaver more than once in terms of looking for something I needed and I find it! Also many moments and memories via pictures; I thought I had lost forever, but realize are stored right there safe and sound in my google drive! The safety and security are on point and overall...thus far Google Drive is Awesome! It also alerts you for each and every sign in attempt on any device and periodically prompts user to verify and conduct security checks for device sign in and activity review ensuring that everything is done by you the user and also that only you have access to ALL YOUR Information. Top it all off, it’s absolutely FREE! No fees, as of yet, but even if they were to charge for this service it would be well worth the monetary cost, for the peace of mind it provides! THANKS GOOGLE DRIVE!!! Keep it Up! Much Appreciated especially by users who may not be as tech savvy as the newer generation of users! THANK YOU!!!
Just as well, a stunning feat of a software company

Picture this: by my office desk lies a Windows 7 computer, antiquated by today's standards, and nevertheless I can use the google chrome browser, and with my Gmail account I begin writing a document, obviously adding data culled from other web sites. I rise from my desk chair, and begin the daily commute home. In the bus, using my Bluetooth wireless headset and my smartphone, I listen to some music from Google Play, while opening said document, which I previously saved to Google Drive, and continue my work, not wasting precious time. When I get home, after unplugging myself from the headset, I am greeted by my loved ones. After some quality time, I decide to lie in bed. I reach for my tablet, stored in the drawer of the bedside table. Once again, Google Drive fulfills its promise, and effortlessly I open the document, proof reading it to correct and polish it. When I want, I can leave it so tomorrow I begin the process again. Simple and convenient are the qualities that come to my mind when I think of Google Drive.
Google is awesome
by M&L5 on 2018/06/14 17:51
Google is awesome I always recommended because it has so many benefits like for example gives you 15GB for summer free no extra cause except if you want more also it saves your photos from your phone to google photos not only that but also it has a program similar to Microsoft but it’s not which is called google docs, excel, PowerPoint, and spread sheets every time your working on your document it automatically saves your what your typing so you don’t have to worry if the internet went out n it didn’t save don’t worry google got your back not only it backs up your document every second but also you can share it with other people the documents you create and keeps track of what everyone is doing in the document and also theirs a shareable link that u can send to everyone without making an effort then signing into their google or if they don’t have google account it is awesome and then when you start typing an assignment in Spanish it corrects your Spanish or any language you are typing
AMAZING
by M Y S T E R Y ~~~~~ on 2018/01/21 15:58
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
by therutabega on 2017/09/24 14:19
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!
by CurlyQTina on 2018/03/11 18:14
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
by Papa Teter on 2018/01/28 09:20
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!

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.
Google has Abandoned Support and Compatibility for iPhone
by M_seattle on 2018/03/13 05:34
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.
Great Storage Option anywhere you Go!
by SLBMarrow on 2018/11/28 18:23
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!!??
Well-Designed Application
by Jacob's Reviews on 2018/02/23 00:34
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.
Stuck between redundant and awesome
by Jesseondrums on 2017/12/12 01:36
Drive 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.
It’s good but could be better.
by Zansberree on 2017/11/06 05:26
I downloaded this because I was having issues with my iPhone and I was afraid of losing my photos. I was happy with the unlimited storage, however I have close to 8000 photos. It took me a very long time to go through and click each picture individually because there is not a “select all” button. This is highly inconvenient and time consuming for anyone who is using the app for the first time and trying to backup the photos they already have. I know not everyone has as many as I do but even if I only had 100 photos that still would have taken a while. Then to make things better (sarcasm) when I finally finished selecting all of my photos and then hit upload, it said “uploading”, and then it just stopped and went to the homepage. It did not upload ANY of my photos. Also I had to leave the room for a moment and my screen locked, when I got back on all of the photos I had selected, had been unselected and I had to start all over. Please fix these issues.
Love this app / Google Docs!
by Shaun M2 on 2018/03/19 13:54
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.
Google Drive Saved My Marriage
by Kcnca on 2018/12/04 04:54
There was an emptiness in my life, that for 20 years I attributed to an unhappy marriage and kids whose mere existence was like nails on a chalkboard. No amount of alcohol, drugs, or hookers would fill that void. Many years and bouts of herpes scabs later, I had reached my wits-end and hired a divorce attorney. He suggested I look into Google Drive before proceeding with such a major decision, which I did and noticed immediate results. Within 20 seconds of using Google Drive, I realized I hadn’t wasted 20 years of my life in a sexless wasteland of a marriage. Rather, I wasted 20 years of my life using other substandard file storage and synchronization services. Google drive has complete transformed my marriage, and my relationship with my kids. Happily, I can say that today my life is much more organized and easily managed thanks to Google Drive. Oh, and my wife now has butt-herpes!
Great when it works
by MathChicklet on 2018/01/27 21:16
I’m a college professor and love that I can access my files from anywhere. I mostly save teaching notes and answer keys that I use in the classroom during a class. The only problem is quite often it takes forever to open a file, or if it opens the file, pinch to zoom won’t work and I’ll just see a white screen or worse, it’ll just force close so you’ll see the document for about 2 seconds and then your back on your home screen. Sometimes you can only see 4 of 10 pages. All of these problems have happened on my iPhone 5s and still occur even now on my iPhone 8 plus. It’s been going on for several years, off and on thru many different updates including this one in January 2018; it’s quite aggravating that it’s not dependable. If you absolutely must have something, DO NOT depend on this app. Have a backup plan. Oh and in case you’re wondering, not only does this happen on the colleges wifi, it happens at home on my very reliable high speed Verizon FIOS connection.
A step away from perfect file management.
by AlissaAnthropologista on 2017/11/29 01:17
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.
Great but......
by xX_Pablo420_Xx on 2018/09/27 04:49
My experience with drive has been nothing short of magnificent throughout my usage. I have a plethora of memories in which I needed drive to perform to perfection and not only did drive deliver, but did so in such a fashion that would make every app developer who worked on it proud and every app developer who didn’t jealous. The beginning of the issue stems from one unfaithful day in which drive decided that today was not a good day to perform the task I needed to. Instead of uploading a video drive decided to act like it did and then not process the video leading to crushing negative repercussion in a deep emotional, mental and physical level. The sheer amount of disturbance my mind felt as I realize that the thing I trusted most in this world had failed me was excruciatingly painful. However this should not take away from the overall performance which I believe to be almost not short of exemplary. 4/5!
Praise to Google Drive!
by ThunderPhoenix4 on 2018/03/24 18:30
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.
Classroom technology wonder!
by julesklett on 2017/11/24 18:20
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.
Helped me recover old photos
by everynameistaken.shdiejdn on 2018/11/19 19:47
So awhile back, I had an iPod 5 gen and one day it shut off completely and I lost all my photos in it because I couldn’t unlock it, and I forgot to save them to iCloud or google photos. It’s been about 3 years since I’d last seen them. But today I realize that I could still access the photos with my iPod to my computer, so I connected my iPod to my computer and opened the file with all my photos, and I dragged all of them to Google drive and now all I have to do is upload them to Google Photos. Then I will have had all my photos back for my iPod and I’m really grateful for this app. It has brought back so many memories and old photos, looking at some of them made me tear up, and this app is really simple to use, in your phone or computer, definitely recommend using it!!
Terrible mobile download quality
by Da Ar on 2018/10/16 04:30
I've been using Drive and Dropbox simultaneously for a while now. One of the biggest and very critical reasons I don't use Drive much is due to the fact that the image downloads to a mobile device are terribly compressed. I conducted a number of tests over multiple devices between both Dropbox and Drive with the exact same files and every single time I landed the same results. The image downloaded to a mobile device (no difference on desktop or laptop) reflected a drastically reduced quality when uploaded and downloaded from Drive vs Dropbox. Regardless of how the image was selected for download via Drive, I always had the same outcome, a disappointingly low quality download of what was otherwise a very crisp and hi res professional quality capture. I'm very surprised that this hasn't been brought up more and addressed but it seems most people aren't noticing how terribly compressed the images are and how badly it is impacting the quality.
great on PC- poor on mobile

Mobile Drive’s primary function is uploading and sharing. The supposed need to download other apps (Docs, Slides, etc) simply to edit and have a better handle over one’s documents is ludicrous, storage-eating, and annoying. PLEASE merge your apps into one, else get rid of the Drive app entirely. There is no need to download more than 3 apps of the same function. When accessed from a computer or laptop, however, Drive is truly an efficient step further into the modern age. It is the easiest and most intuitive storage and document-creating app I have seen, and is, most of the time, made good use out of. As aforementioned, it is the necessity to download multiple apps which has driven me from Drive (no pun intended) when I’m on the go. Make Drive all-document-inclusive as it’s web counterpart (or allow web Drive to be accessed fully in-browser without needing to download an app!) and it will become a very hefty and durable app! Until then, two stars. :(
Google Drive is awesome!
by Marsh Waha on 2018/02/27 14:17
I absolutely love Google Drive, I love the fact that I can access documents from anywhere just on my computer just online but also from a tablet or phone. It’s probably one of the best things to have. It’s super easy to use, you can save PDFs you can convert them to Google documents even save slideshows, spreadsheets, and do much more. It’s help me save a lot of space on my computer, because the hard drives 10 to get clogged up with documents and data and I really do like the fact that I can use Google drive to save my documents and put them somewhere safe. You can also upload your documents and Excel sheets Microsoft or presentation slides. Google Drive allows you do so much with documents, you can even upload pictures too. Although for pictures I use Google Photos.
Rapture-proof
by Downboynow on 2017/12/28 11:55
Scripture 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.
Simple, secure and reliable but still not easy to work with
by Mr.racsr on 2018/01/28 16:48
When 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.
Google Drive Review
by emma_is_da_bom on 2018/01/27 16:01
I 100% recommend this app. It’s SOO easy to use ; and instead of saving it every time you edit something, google drive saves it automatically! The color changing button and font-changing button and everything else is very simple to use. You can add transitions to make things cooler, and there are different templates like MLA, science report, and photo album, etc. You can make a slideshow, document, or site, and many other types of presentations. You also can also mostly-easily upload things onto google drive (it’s lot easier than other apps like it!) You can also share/send your presentations them to other people with an account . If you want a simple, easy-to-use presentation-making app, this is the PERFECT app to use!👍😃
Google pulling ahead.........
by Robert Aymond on 2017/11/21 22:59
Looks like Google is emerging as the dominant multi-mode program when you consider how many applications they have that allows any person to accomplish most every task most people need to perform both personal and business tasks. I just spent 2 hours reviewing many apps in Google’s arsenal and didn’t see all of their programs, but the ones I did see were solid, well-thought-out, easily learned & very simple & fast to import data from the apps I’ve been using forever, into their much more useful and helpful set of programs. It’s great to have one app that has many layers of useful apps which all work in unison, saving time and many steps it took the old way, as I switched from app to app cutting and pasting data from one to another. Great platform Google!
Not optimized for music
by rockerrchick13 on 2018/04/24 06:35
I understand this is multipurpose storage, and if I wasn't using this to share audio files (of original music) with my band members, I'd be rating this 5 stars. Very sleek and intuitive app. My only issues are when I'm listening to recordings of original songs that my band shares using the drive. When I'm testing a mix sometimes I like to hear the same song on repeat or cycle through multiple songs. Basically, it is frustrating not having Playlist features for folders with audio files. I have to move tracks over to my iTunes app (later, on my computer) to use Playlist features that make listening easy. I know this is iffy territory for a file sharing app because you don't want people to be sharing files they don't own. But it would seriously help musicians so much!
I’m with the “stunning feat of humanity” guy (therutabega)
by Fefur on 2017/10/09 12:36
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?
Please combine all google drive apps
by Erika Nahkala on 2017/12/23 22:27
I like google drive. I use it a lot. But the mobile version does not please me. I like the setup of the drive app and the organization, but i don’t like that you have to download the other apps just to edit your documents, slideshows, and spreadsheets. it feels inefficient and scattered. it’s a waste of space on my phone. the google drive app is nothing more than a glorified window: look but not touch etc etc. and the individual apps (docs etc) are more difficult and painful to navigate than necessary. even when i click through my various folders, and get to a document, once i exit out of that document i still have to go through all of the folders again to find another doc in the same folder. please merge your apps. like i said, i like the organization of google drive but i feel that the entire system would be much more efficient and effective if everything could truly be accessed from one place. thank you.
Reliable
by Mommygate on 2017/12/21 21:31
I 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.
The most useful platform I use, and the app is flawless.
by Aaron Mason on 2018/12/02 17:31
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.
AWESOME!!!
by John50B on 2018/06/26 20:51
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!
Great app
by Owl7366974 on 2018/06/09 15:12
This 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!
Loved it til this update
by laughing wolfe on 2017/10/18 18:58
Seriously, Google? I don't think you're minding this upgrade. It's been a few weeks and though I have iOS 10.3.3 (iPhone 5), after I click upgrade your app tells me I need 10.3.3 for this upgrade, but it can give me the latest I can use instead. After trying that 6 times over a few weeks, the counter still says I need to upgrade. Talk about wrong messaging! Ugh. Every time I open my phone it tells me I to upgrade but I need the iOS for it which I have. It's like being subjected to waitstaff that repeatedly asks how's the meal: it's annoying, and regardless of the quality of the meal you really don't want to go back. Sad to say it's affected my use of the app- I'm staying away for the duration 'til you get your stuff together. Three stars cause you were fine before even though you lost it with this one.
Great Service
by AnthonyS001 on 2017/11/20 18:17
I’ve been using Google Drive for around 5 years now and I’ve only had positive experiences with it. I mainly use it as a sort of library now to store various PDFs, articles, and writings that I want to easily access or share with others. For the longest time I used it for collaborative spreadsheets to manage data with my peers or to centralize a lot of information into one file that could be easily accessed by others. It worked well and the best part of it was that it was free. I’d highly recommend this to any college students that want to centralize their course work or notes that do not use iCloud Drive. I use both for my work and it makes everything so much easier to keep track of and access in an instant if needed. I’ve also used it for my tutoring since I can see the information people are struggling with without having to make time for an appointment. It enables quick feedback in many different forms. The possibilities with the tools they provide you with are endless. This is an app that is definitely worth the download for anyone seeking to improve their productivity and ease of access.
Dear google please fix latest update not compatible with iPad
by Doralisa Melendez on 2017/10/04 21:21
Seriously google? I am unable to update my first GEN iPad mini and I have the latest iOS 9.3.5 and now all of a sudden it's saying it requires iOS 11 are you freaking kidding me? so I went back to the App Store and checked what version of iOS is required and it says you need iOS 9 so why is the new update saying that it requires iOS 11 that's bull crap that is one major error come on Google you need to fix this bug ASAP right now I use Google drive all the time for work and this update is preventing me from accessing very important files and the only way for me to access these files I have to use my iPhone 6 because since it is updated to iOS 11 but not my dear old first GEN iPad mini this needs to be fixed Google because it is causing compatibility issues with a lot of older Gen iOS devices and I swear if I lose my job I will seriously sue Google for this bull crap😠👎🏼
Insists on installing iOS 11 version with iOS 10
by DanielJosLeary on 2017/10/04 20:01
Had to delete the Google Drive app because the App Store keeps alerting me that there is a new version to download. Except this version requires iOS 11 which I don't and won't have. This should be fine, because the App Store has the ability to see that I have iOS 10, so it skips the iOS 11 required updates after a few comfirming clicks. But this is not the case with Google Drive. It tells me the update is there, I try to download it, it tells me I only have iOS 10, so it downloads the last iOS 10 version, then the cycle starts over again. It rediculous because I've re-downloaded the same iOS 10 version of the app four times before I realized what was happening. I'm sure this is a flaw of this particular app and they way the comptible versions are listed in the app store because I have not had this problem with any other app, which has an iOS 11 only version.
Great!
by nw1lson on 2018/10/04 03:14
I’m a Mac user normally but I used Drive today for the first time to upload a couple hundred photos to share with a client. I didn’t find it very user friendly — that is, it didn’t seem self-explanatory, really. I looked around for a while to find out how exactly to create a folder, move files to the folder and then share it with the client. However, I looked up the instructions and then I was like, “Oh, duh, ok.” Now that I know how to use it, it will be much easier and eventually become second nature just like anything else I use. It’s just the initial use that frustrated me. Nothing is obvious or in-your-face, which is very useful when using for the first time. But I have no qualms with the app, really. Once I figured out how to use it, it worked great.

Great app.
by kiowamtp on 2018/11/04 21:38
Perfect for any storage need, organization and work flow. Love using Google’s products over any other competitors, it just works! My only complaints though is that sometimes I am not able to download a photo to my phone from drive. I’m not sure why. This is quite frustrating and I wish there was a big button on the menu that just says “save to camera roll”. Otherwise it’s great for school or regular work, I appreciate the care for design and functionality. I use Google slides and Google docs all the time. As a photographer it is also super helpful. The quality in images can reduce when transferring from one device to another, which is quite annoying, but still good enough quality for almost all uses.
Best going today!!!
by Rockosobe on 2018/05/06 18:19
The ease of use is one of the many reasons I love this app it is as simple as pick a picture, tap icon, put in folder ( you can name a folder) and tap upload BOOM Your done!!! You can rename your pic or video and create many folders and name it to whatever you want!! Saves tons of space on your phone and can access it from whatever device your on!! Plenty of storage space to just keep adding!! You can’t go wrong with it!! If you want something easy to use and want to save space on your phone and have a place to store all your photos and videos and free then this is for you but if you don’t want any of that then it’s not for you!!!
No longer 5-star
by t0ny_juni0r on 2017/11/10 04:21
The removal of passcode/Touch ID lock is a big let down and a HUGE deal to me. I don't care if I can lock my iPhone altogether, sometimes I unlock my phone and hand it over to someone to use it and I have no problem with them accessing anything except Google Drive. Now I have to deal with a new problem because Google removed passcode lock and Drive on my phone is accessible to anyone who uses my phone while it's unlocked. Again, no, I don't want to lock my phone altogether. Below was my initial 5-star review, which I take back. ______________________________ I use Drive to backup everything. From documents to mp3 files, photos and videos. I could use Google Photos for unlimited photo and video backup, but I've been using Drive for a while and find it more intuitive, simpler and easier to use. Besides, I'd rather have all sorts of file types in one place. Also, the free 15 gigs are enough so far.
Wonderful exploration
by Wonderful exploration on 2018/02/15 02:07
I might have thought that I would’ve have gotten the tool I needed to backup my files, but I made my info increase, and decided to try a helpful tool to keep great storage. I was not in the mind of this tool, I would’ve thought I would not be able to access my info when I have to, but this tool has taken me to a wonderful point in my life that I am inspired to use a data storage and other useful operations to make my life a lot easier. I can see that this tool then brings me to a level as a genius when there are resources to store and review in this tool. This was a vast majority in my life right now, and I hope to continue the use of this tool!
Beyond “F” grading!!!

OneDrive and Dropbox is much better than useless, data eater and not orderly Google Drive. Had to wait for thumbnail to show a little picture before click on for a full size picture. So friggin’ time consuming searching for one measly picture. Plus it messed up your timeline by putting all the same dates on picture the day you either update or upload when it is not! What a moron that Google is! If iPhone does have ability of having mirco SD cards, I would tell Google to kiss my bottom and never looking back because mirco SD cars show the picture immediately! OneDrive and Dropbox...you only have to wait less than a second for the thumbnail show a little picture unlike GoogleDrive which is average 8 seconds delay for each friggin’ thumbnail!! Not impressed! Got super fast internet and great iPhone. So it is GoogleDrive’s end itself that messed the whole thing or poorly executed software.
