Convenient but disorganised
Convenient free space with sharing capabilities (but only to other google users). However, it is annoying to organise and is an online tool only (offline is a waste of time).
Especially difficult is organising folders and files that have been shared with you. Google assumes you will access shared material using Google’s search for key words - fine if the title or contents contain that exact key word, but if not, that material is effectively lost. There’s also the problem that searching on a particular word can distort Google’s data profile for you, even if you’re only using that word to locate a file on a unrelated topic (e.g. the technical paper with the metaphor about ‘cheese’).
I’ve been using it daily for my cross platform storage now for about three years. I love the sync on my laptop and I’m loving the new drop-down folders on the left. I would like some more customisation here so I could put up shortcuts to favourite folders for example. I love the easy file sharing capability and export and share functions within iOS but I would like when I open a word doc to take to me word instead of auto-converting it into a google doc. All in all though, a great app that’s always improving. Nice one.
I absolutely love this app and all the futures that come with it however, it is such a hassle without a copy folder option. When you need to copy a folder, and it’s filled to the brim with all your efforts, you have to go to a third party app, let them see all your work, and sometimes it doesn’t even do a good job! Once I tried to copy a full folder, and there bits and pieces missing! And if you manage to do it, you get “unknown” (this is different as when you use a third copy app, it will copy under your email address) making copies of bits and pieces, basically stealing your much earned work! Hope you fix this so that it will make all our lives easier!
