Take this Google cloud storage app for a Drive

by Kate Currin

It is amazing that some people still do not use Google Docs to store and edit important documents. If you are still carrying around a USB drive with all your work documents or your graduate thesis, you definitely need to check out this smart and productive app. The free Google Drive app allows you to save all your documents in one handy place that you can access from just about anywhere. It connects with Google Docs so everything you have already saved, transfers over. App users can easily share documents with co-workers, clients, teachers, etc. You get 5GB of free cloud space and it is less than $2.50 a month for an upgrade to 25GB.

Google Drive is made for collaborating. When you make edits to a document saved in your Google Drive app, those with whom you have shared the file can see your edits in mere seconds and vice versa. For you Type A worry warts, you can also save files for use without an Internet connection just in case. You can convert and save spreadsheets, PDFs, presentations and more. Another fun and super-useful feature is that you can quickly take a photo of a document with printed text and convert it to a Google document with no retyping necessary.

The Google Drive app is optimized for larger screen Android devices and tablets. Another handy feature allows you to share large video and photo files saved in the Google cloud by a link, instead of constantly downloading and taking up much-coveted Android smartphone/tablet space.
