Google Drive had been my computer since the early days of Google introducing this amazing service. I have lost and broken ment laptops since I started using Google Drive and yet I have not lost a single document, image or any of my other work. I also trust Google with my highly sensitive business information because of Google's two-factor verification. I highly recommend trying this application if you haven't yet, whether it's for simple storing or creating and managing documents, spreadsheets, presentations etc. Also if you haven't yet, try Google Drive on the web and get to know all of its awesome features.

I love this app. All my pictures and videos are on Google drive. No need to worry about running out of space or losing them if I loose a device. They are all neatly in one place. Th update rocks because I can see a thumbnail before I open a pic and I can scroll as if I am in my gallery. Also love that I can share files with anyone. I keep all my recipes on drive too, so now if I'm at the super market, I can easily see what I need for dinner. Awesome organization tool. Full Review

Mike, Moto e running 6 This is a very useful app, BUT... There needs to be a pin access to open it. When other people use our phone or we lose it, an unlocked app is not safe. Other than that, the app allows me to edit and control my files with my phone and then carry on using my Chromebook, great. Pin access please, Google. Full Review

I use Drive to back up everything. Security isn't a problem as I use 7Zip to condense and password-protect my files. I can access my files from my Pixel 2 XL, my Pixel C and my computer. Backup&Sync keeps it all together. I can share anything, from any of my devices and view it on any of them. And 15GB free! What's not to love? Full Review

Installed by default on all Android devices, but can be disabled. Google Drive as a service is awesome. 15 GB on a super reliable and secure server, connected to your portal to all Google, for free? That sure beats DropBox's whopping 500 MB and OneDrive's not reliable or that secure network. As an app, it works pretty dang good too, and for any Google Drive user, is the most useful app you can have for managing Google Drive on your phone! [Review streak: 2] Full Review

I think you should develope a function/program to retrieve pictures and videos that are accidentally deleted /erased / removed. Majority of population makes mistakes and often they click a botton they thought it's the correct botton to click but it's already too late. The pictures or videos are now deleted and it's one. Please create an option to retrieve the data lost. Maybe like this ( RETRIEVE DATA: yes or no. ) Thank you. I want to say that I love using Google Drive it's very useful and helpful. Thank you Full Review

Blown away that the search KING Google has the worst search in cloud storage. If I have an image titled "Sharper Edit14" and type in "Sharp" it doesn't pull up any images!! I have to type the full title"Sharper Edit14". What's the point in having to remember exact names of pictures when I have hundreds of thousands?? Dropbox easily searches keywords and finds them in an instant. Full Review

Drive is a great app, but it's missing a few things. Security. The app doesn't currently offer pin, password or fingerprint lock options the way Dropbox or OneDrive does. A company that offers 2-Factor Authentication should offer some type of security for a program that houses potentially sensitive information. Also, instead of telling me whenever every file has been uploaded (a huge annoyance on multiple uploads), just have a progress bar in the notification area showing total upload progress. Full Review
Sasha.M Published date: March 15, 2018
Why this app constantly ask for updates? When nothing changes? Where is pass code option? Where is fingerprint log in, are you freaking insane? Don't mess with security, if I lost my phone, or stolen, anyone who finds it can access my files. Add download whole folder option? Is that really hard? And ENOUGH WITH WEEKLY UPDATES!!! Sort out app already. Full Review

LOST MY PHOTOS???!!! WHERE did all of my photos I stored automatically in Drive and Google Photos go from our last September vacation to Europe 2017??? AND, they were also stored in Snapseed as well??? AND, these were very important photos I saved and edited and after backing up and resetting my Nexus 7 (2nd Gen) b/c of terrible Google tablet performance, I've lost them?! I have an entire vacation of photos completely deleted but vacations before that are still there, WHAT HAPPENED to the rest?!!! PISSED!!! Full Review

How can this get good reviews? Started uploading a 15 minute video of my son wall climbing at 2pm. Its 11.10pm now and its not even reached halfway yet. On fibre broadband!!! Everything else connected to my wifi is fine and my last check i was getting 21mbps. This app is utter junk so I'm going back to mega to save my stuff. The worst of it is the reason I'm trying to upload stuff is the charger port on my phone is faulty and it takes some effort to get it to charge and i can't get it fixed til I've saved the things i don't want to lose... phone is now at 18% because this pathetic app has taken half 9 hours to upload 7 minutes of video. Don't waste your time - update - it got to 18 hours in and i cancelled it. Bye Google drive! IDIOTS!!!!!! Full Review

Get it together Google, this is your cloud storage app and there isn't an option on mobile to make ALL files in a folder or the drive available offline... Absolutely ridiculous that I have 1000s of photos I'd have to go through one by one to make available offline, not to mention that when you scroll through more than 5 they stop loading properly... You have to restart the app to get them to load again, and this has been a known issue for 3 years. Extremely disappointed with the support and feedback provided from the Google team, almost seems like they don't know even have a team working on the drive. These issues still don't warrant a single star rating, but I figure if enough people give it one star for these obvious issues Google will actually put some developers on to fix them. Full Review

Please never change. The Drive app is pretty much perfect as it is. Tons of nifty features, such as quick document scanning, recent files and starring files (something I was really missing in OneDrive). This is one of the best apps I have installed. Okay, perfect except for saving directories offline. I'm missing that. Perfect otherwise. Full Review
