Use it for years. Mostly useful, but lucks some basic functions. Biggest problem for me - can't look for my images in full screen mode - app tries to load it but it fails after couple of images and i see only black screen. The worst thing is that ppl apply to google with the same problem for year already and nobody answers or fixes the issue!!! Full Review

I use Google Sheets daily on my S8+ and for some reason my column sizes keep changing automatically. I'll resize the column widths so I can see my data and save it, only to have it change to either a smaller or larger width the next time I open the file in Google Sheets. It's so annoying having to constantly resize the column widths every time I access my file. Why does this keep happening? Full Review

If you have a few files this might work for you. If you are uploading thousands of files you can't even see how many files are in a folder. There is no way to confirm that all of what you wanted to upload got uploaded. To not be able to see the number of files you have stored is ridiculous. This should be a basic function. I regret paying the 9.99 for one month. I will be cancelling ASAP. Full Review

Suddenly Drive has decided that all my Excel files with active links to perfectly safe sites are viruses! It will no longer allow download from app and from browser it gives a file infected by virus warning. Neither Norton nor Webroot nor Malwarebytes nor McAfee sees any virus in these Excel files. Once I delete all the active links and reupload the Excel files are no longer seen as viruses by Drive. I used these files for years without issue. Please fix this bug. Links in Excel are not all viruses. Full Review

Until the last update arrived it was really great. But now the app's incompatibility with my older iPad renders it passed. Google needs to release a patch or whatnot in next update arriving soon. Prepared to adjust this review to much more favorable once issued... Full Review

If only my upload speed was not being shaped to 100kbps (I have cable and tested this every way possible and it is always between 90 to 100 kbps I would give it 5 stars. I'm in Australia where politics has systematically crashed us down to 51st in global wired internet speed rankings) but this is independent of my wire speed. Anyone else experiencing this?

Once you have a file on Google drive, you can no longer download it to your computer or phone... You can make countless copies and other useless functions on Google drive, but nothing else. Whoever is making decisions at Google is lacking in intellectual ability. Full Review

Pay for extra storage, spend ages uploading all your videos just for them to all say "this video cannot be played" it's so frustrating, sometimes they will work for about an hour then all of a sudden all your videos stop working. I need alternative option for a drive because Google's one is awful, this video cannot be played will eventually always happen to your files so don't waste your time. Search for a different drive until Google fix they're stuff, will be cancelling subscription Full Review

Awesome app. I just forgot I used to take Flash Drives with me sometime ago which I am using as Keychain for my vehicle or for my carrying bag. All because of this G Drive. ð Plus this is my personal experience that don't go for free 100 GB because no doubt they are providing but they are not reliable. Just imagine I promised someone I had mad a PowerPoint presentation and saved it on that so called 100GB cloud storage, when I login to share the link to that person. It was gone. That's why personal suggestion is to be simple enough and go for subscription instead of free. I my self used 15 GB since long and now I subscribed to 100 GB in 2017. Full Review

Causes loss of responsiveness (and thus input) if switching from wireless to no signal and back again. Have to close the document and wait while Docs struggles to reload it to be able to write again. Completely unacceptable lack of basic reliability. Full Review

Such a relief Would give ten stars if possible! I absolutely love the Google Drive! Over the years I have lost countless photos, and now I never will again! The "free up device storage" option is convenient but I don't feel like it works completely. Being able to share pictures or albums is way too awesome! And also I love that I can access the drive from any device, this whole app makes things so much simpler! Thank you Google!! Full Review

Regardless of how much i like google drive on my nvdia shield about 1 out of the 5 times i open i folder the app crashes. Starting it again at the main screen. I work a lot with folders so sometimes to get to the folder i want it takes up to 7 or 8 restarts. Until that is fixed i rate this 3 stars. Will update if a fix is patched in. Full Review

There's a couple of them out there that are good a bath whatever you feel comfortable in but what I also like since Mega they give you 50 gigabytes for free but they're only one problem if you forget the password you're screwed so you always got to remember it that's high school security that they get 50 gigabytes of free can't beat that Full Review

What's the point of making folders and make order in the files, if you cannot download the folders in the end? I used Drive to get access to all files that I need, but if I want to have everything on the tablet or phone, I have to move folders from my pc, because I cannot just make files available offline in the folders, no, only in the complete mess.

I'd like to know which pictures do take space, which don't. Cause suddenly my space expired and I don't want to pay for space you think I need, but I don't. I don't want you to delete my pictures locally either, but you want to have the right for that... Well I wish I'd never started to use Google drive for pictures... Full Review

Not a good interface for working with a lot of files, you can't select multiple files easily. The ... Drop menu next to the file name is too close to the scroller, so you end up hitting the scroll bar by accident sending you a 100 files away. Super annoying Full Review

It does everything it should do and it does it very well. I think Google Drive and Google Photos are the apps (cloud) that brought me over from Apple. My Drive files are accessible from any system that I happen to be using at that time, whereas iCloud is only accessible from systems Apple wants you to use. I can even use Drive from my iPhone. Well, until I trade it in on a Pixel 2 that is. Full Review

The app is okay, but it's lacking a very crucial feature. There's no way to go back up the root of a shared folder at all. If you went straight to say.. Pictures > Country > Farm > Image _17.jpg and the containing folder from your recent history, it's impossible to return up back to the Pictures folder, or even the Country one, there's not even an option in the vertical ... menu at all..
