Google Drive makes it easy to view documents, pictures, drawings, spreadsheets, and presentations while on the go. It also lets you download copies of files directly onto your device.

Easy add

It's simple to create new folders or documents with the Google Drive app. There's even a new "Scan" feature which takes a photo (from your device's camera) and turns it into into a searchable PDF file.

Finding documents is a snap, thanks to Drive's many filter and sort options.

Pocket editor

Drive lets you edit documents and spreadsheets easily. While previous versions had only a few basic editing tools, this newest release has really stepped up its game, as even the spreadsheet editor now lets you change font styles, sizes, and colors. It also lets you change cell colors and alignment.

Conversation starter

Google Drive gets the conversation started with its comment module, which lets you add, reply to, and resolve comments right within the editor.

A new face

Drive's Dashboard got an upgrade and now brings the white space of clean lines of Google Now to its interface. If you're not into the card-style layout, though, you can always revert back to the old-school list.
