I personally really like it. Not that different than docs, but it works well on my phone and tablet. I pretty much haven't touched Dropbox or Box ever since it was released. A friend of mine uses Skydrive for Android and he likes that alot. Any experiences with that?

How are you guys liking it so far? Basically on par with other cloud services, or somehow better/worse?

Drive's vertical integration with Google's other platforms is certainly a market advantage over other big players like Dropbox and Box. There's a great infographic that summarizes what impact Google Drive will have in the generic document sharing market here: http://www.firmex.com/blog/generic-vs-specialized-document-sharing-in-the-cloud/

Even if Google Drive has been just released it can really matched-up against Dropbox. I've not used Skydrive yet but I searched it on the new and saw this website saying details about Skydrive:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Live_SkyDrive

I saw that Skydrive is owned by Microsoft and it offers 7 GB of memory space but seems to be the more popular players here are Google Drive and Dropbox. I came across this site and it gives a comparison between these two popular applications:

Basing it from my experience I'll go with Google Drive since it has more powerful features for me. :grin:

Same here :-D If it integrates so well with everything else, why use something different?
