Exactly what I need when I need it!
I use the free version. Drive is invaluable for allowing me to keep forms, drawings, charts & graphs in the cloud and accessible to any device any time i need it. From work, home or outside of either, I can work freely and completely.
That's not to say there are not glitches here and there. This is a bold program that is blazing a trail into cloud based performance. Updates risk little glitches that are usually fixed immediately. Docs is not Word, so it does most of what word can do but not all. I can see how those that rely on word for work will be disappointed (Word does not always allow for full compatibility).
I appreciate Drive and I am glad it is available for me to utilize.
Great tool - beats Dropbox and OneDrive for value
I use Google Apps for work and also to share folders and docs with my wife. The iOS app supports multiple accounts, which is great. The amount of free storage means I can actually share folders with people, whereas with Dropbox and significant project (more than 2GB) would require both me and the other user to pay $9.99/month, because shared folders count against the quota of all members sharing the folder, not just the owner's. Google counts quota only against the owner's account, and gives enough free storage to make even an unpaid account useful. It's also more reliable Han OneDrive, and doesn't have file name restrictions like OneDrive does.
I pay for Google Drive storage because I need that storage for Photos, Gmail, etc--but objectively, the iOS, web, and Mac apps are all far behind Dropbox in terms of reliability, features, and design.
Google Drive for Mac always gives me "sync errors" where I have to keep clicking "retry" or quit and restart the app. Google Drive for iOS will often fail to accurately reflect the contents of my Google Drive, and lacks the ability to save a folder offline. The apps just look and behave very strangely--Google is just ignoring the way that other apps work for its own arbitratily different look and feel. It's generally a very frustrating experience, and if not for the fact that I like other Google services there's no way I could recommend this product.
