Google Drive Syncs File Between Android, iOS, Desktops
Google today made Google Drive available to the Android and iOS platforms, as well as most desktop PCs. Google Drive is an online storage service similar to Box or DropBox. It gives users 5GB of free storage and interacts with 30 different types of files, such as Docs, Excel, PowerPoint, Jpegs, etc. Google Drive integrates with Google Docs, which is the online tool used to interact with documents. In addition to the online tool, which is available from most browsers, Google has dedicated Google Drive applications for Android devices, and Mac and Windows PCs (iPhone/iPad app to follow soon). The apps automatically keep files in sync across devices and can be used to control how, when, and with whom files are shared. Google Drive also automatically links up with Google+, and stored files can easily be shared to Google's social network. For users needing more than 5GB of data, Google Drive offers additional storage for a monthly fee.
