How to use Google Drive: Google Drive is an online (cloud) storing solution similar to the oh-so-popular Dropbox. There are a lot of big players in the cloud storing world that Google Drive will be competing with. The Dropbox, Microsoft's SkyDrive, Apple's iCloud, Evernote, and Box are all contending for your content. But Google Drive might just stand out from the pack. Google Drive is essentially the same as the former Google Docs but with some added features. You can store your documents, photos, music, videos, etc. all in one place. Just like with all the other services it syncs with your mobile devices and your computer, so if you make a change from one gadget, it will automatically show up if you were to access it elsewhere.
