Google Drive for storage

Google Drive offers users a place to create, share, collaborate, and keep their information
in the cloud. In much the same way as you have been using Drop Box, with Google Drove
you can upload and access your files such as videos, photos, Google Docs and PDFs.

The really good news is that for existing Google fanatics, Google Docs has been built into
Google Drive, so you can work with others in real time on documents, spreadsheets and
presentations.

Once you choose to share content with others, you can add and reply to comments
on anything (PDF, image, video file, etc.) and receive notifications when other people
comment on shared items.

As with all cloud computing solutions, you can access your information through hte web
using a mobile device or computer. More good news is that Google Drive works across
Mac or PC and can download the Drive app to your Android phone or tablet.

There is a hitch though, there’s currently no Drive app for your iOS devices. Clearly
Google’s failure to deliver an iOS app for the launch of Drive is about rewarding their
Android customer based but it seems a little petty.

Back to the good news, you can get started with 5GB of storage for free and you can
choose to upgrade to 25GB for $2.49/month, 100GB for $4.99/month or even 1TB for
$49.99/month. When you upgrade to a paid account, your Gmail account storage will also
expand to 25GB.

So, if you live in an Android world why not head to drive.google.com/start and start
driving?
