Google Drive is one of the best applications released as part of the G Suite of products. With Google Drive, you can store your documents and other digital assets on Google’s cloud. This makes it very easy for you to access your files from multiple locations, whether you are on your desktop or your mobile device. As long as you have an internet connection you have access.
If you are part of an institution which has taken advantage of the free Google Suite for Education you have unlimited storage in the context of that subscription. Educational institutions are the only ones who can sign up for these products that utilize all the Google apps for education including Google classroom. Anyone can sign up for Google Drive and get the default allotment of 2 Gigabytes of storage which is a lot, but if you need more, you can buy an upgrade from Google very reasonably for what you get. I have 100 gigabytes of space on my personal storage plan, and it only costs me $9.99 per month. It’s a lot cheaper than other cloud storage companies considering the amount of space you get and the features available.
Google Drive is the application used if you want to create Google Forms, but the ability to create new forms or even edit them is not available on mobile devices. You can view if you open them up in the browser and do some work there, but you have to work with Google Forms from the desktop to have any productivity.

The mobile version of Google Drive is not as robust as the app is if you access it through your desktop using a browser such as Google Chrome. Even with the limitations, I keep it installed on all my mobile devices so that I can have access to my files where ever I happen to be at the time. As you can see from the reviews below, even with the limitations over the desktop version, many people still find Google Drive very useful. It’s a must have for any educator’s digital toolbox especially if you are utilizing apps such as Google classroom.
Overall Google Drive is a must-have app for just about anyone. You can use others on such a Dropbox or Box, but in my opinion, this is one of the best iPad apps for managing cloud storage available.
