Many rumors have been going around about a Google service/application that would let you keep your files in the cloud and access them from wherever you are. No, I’m not talking about Dropbox, I am talking about Google Drive that let’s you not only save your documents but also edit them using Google Docs which is now built right into Drive. Editing is quick and easy.
Google’s pricing for storage is currently cheaper then any other cloud storage system. Storage starts at 5GB for free, and if upgrade to a paid account you can choose other storage options like 25GB for $ 2.49 per month, 100GB for $4.99 per month or even 1TB for $49.99 per month. Also when you upgrade to a paid account your Gmail storage will automatically be upgraded to 25GB.
Google says there will be even more features in the near future and that this is only the beginning. Drive is definitely an application I will keep and use often and as a matter of fact I wrote a majority of this article in Drive using Docs. The application itself needs improvements the cache for example doesn’t have support for moving it to SD card like browsers do. I like that there is a “switch accounts” option on the bottom menu.
The application is available for download anywhere in the world, unfortunately Drive services are not (looks like it works in Europe as well but you need a confirmation first from Google). You can get Google Drive here if you are in The United States.
