Google Drive Arrives Today

I've always loved Google Apps and have used the Google Docs with my colleagues and students. Storage space is limited to 2GB, so when I read about the new Google Drive which was introduced today, I was very happy. Here's some of its great features:

  • 5GB storage (Free account)
  • Upload and share your files, which can include videos, photos, PDF's etc.
  • Google Docs are built into Google Drive, so accessing your files is easy
  • Share and collaborate with others
  • Google Drive can be installed on your PC or Mac at home
  • Download the app for your Android phone (iPhone app is in the works...)
  • Google drive is able to identify OCR, (optical character recognition) which means any scanned text can be recognized in a search. (You can't edit the text)
  • If you are looking for increased storage space, you can upgrade to  25GB/month, ($2.49) 100GB, ($4.99/month) or 1TB for $49.99/month.
Here's a video overview of Google Drive:
