Right now I am experiencing the joy of new love with Google Drive. I’ve been using Documents to Go for my file synchronization for a few years now, and for most of that time it worked perfectly. Recently, though, we’ve been having some problems. Then I heard about Google Drive.
Google Drive gives you 5 GB of free storage that will automatically sync to any PC, Mac, or Android based mobile device (iOS coming soon) with the Drive app installed. So far, it works like a dream and has simplified my file sharing system immensely. Speaking of file sharing, Drive also gives you the option to share files, folders, or your entire drive with individual users or the entire interwebs. While I don’t plan on making my first drafts public domain at any date in the foreseeable future, this is an amazing tool when collaborating on a novel with another writer who lives on the other side of the country! (I’m staring at you, Lani!!) I’ll let you know if I run into any problems that dim my fondness for this program, but right now the desktop applications are nearly perfect and with a couple of upgrades, the mobile apps will be too.
Now, because I’m still low on time, here are some articles I think you might find amusing, all found on Cracked.com. Just a warning, though, these contain foul language to some degree.
