Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

Wirefly wants you to be able to trust that the files on your smartphone are going to be safe and secure, so we decided to let you in on a great smartphone app: Google Drive, your one-stop file saver. 

Google Drive allows you to easily store all of your files in one place, much like Google's other smartphone apps. But Google Drive is even more innovative than the rest.

Being that it's a smartphone storage system, a great feature of this app is that it recognizes images you've taken and stored so that you can type in a description of the image and it will instantly pop up. And you can also access documents you've scanned onto your smartphone by searching for content on the app.

Another great aspect of Google Drive is that you don't need access to the Internet to use it. It manages all of your files on-the-go, and easily allows you to share them with your contacts. So the next time you're out and see an awesome sunset, you can snap a picture of it, save it to your Google Drive, and effortlessly send it to your friends and family. 

Available in both the Google Play store and the iTunes store, this smartphone app is a very popular download, especially after its most recent update. One of the many convenient features about it is that once you sign into your Google Drive app, you will automatically be signed into your YouTube, Google Maps, Chrome, Gmail, and other Google-run accounts on your smartphone. 

Google Drive is the main source for other Google apps, like Google Keep, Docs, Sheets, Forms, and even more, so they are all built-in and ready to use. If you like to have your important digital documents, photos, and files all in one place on your smartphone, then Google Drive is the perfect download for you.

Final Verdict
