Docs for Google Drive App Reviews

Almost the perfect Google Drive Desktop App

I do a lot of work in Google Drive, and while I can open up a Safari or Chrome window to do that work, I tend to like to keep my digital workspace organized by apps. As such, I wanted to utilize an actual application to access my Google Drive account, and its Google productivity Apps. I stumbled across GoDrive, and saw mostly positive reviews, the price was right, and so I downloaded it. It’s pretty straightforward: an app that loads your Google Drive account in its own respective window. On that front, you get exactly what you want, and the app works well! Clean interface, you Google Drive account is essentially just rendered, as it would be in a browser, in the app. Why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I would have been copmelled to give the app 5 stars, but there is one drawback, which I am hoping will be addressed in a future release: When you open a Google Doc, Sheet, or Slides file, they open in a brand new window, rather than in a tab. While this may not be a big issue for many people, I sometimes have five or six files opened simultaneously, and I don’t want to have five separate windows that I have to keep track of (in this regard, the browser version of Drive really is pretty easy to work in). I looked to see if there was a preference setting where I could choose to have tabbed content, but alas, there was none. If this feature is addressed, and implemented in a future update, then I will happily change my review to 5 out of 5. Aside from that one minor shortcoming, this is a great app, and I highly recommend it!

Needs some fixing.

This app has the potential to be really nice, however, it sometimes freezes on the homepage which requires you to quit and re-open the program. If this gets fixed it would be 5 stars.

Freezes

This app freezes almost every time I open it. My computer is practically brand new and has nothing on it. No other App behaves this way on my 5G internet. Pretty odd….

Best Google Drive/Docs app… but it desperately needs tabs and unfortuantely uses Safari

Love using this app. Very clean interface. Easy to use. The only thing keeping me from giving this 5 stars is the lack of tabbed browsing within the app. At work I have many Google Sheet docs open to cross reference data and build new data in others. Having a clutter of open windows makes the purpose of this app keeping me from using my web browser counter productive since I can keep all those Google Sheets open in separate tabs within a browser. Please add tabs to allow us to open multiple google docs within the single app window without cluttering up my desktop. The other apps like this does not have this feature and I guarantee adding it will set this product apart from the others and insure more sales. If you can add tabs, might I sugguest displaying the Google Doc type icon on the tab and if room the title of the doc. But I will be happy enough if it just had tabs. Unfortunately the dealbreaker is the app uses Safari within it’s windows and if you are a heavy Google Sheets user like I am… Safari 10 and Google Sheets do not work well together and cause formulas to break - which the data I have to deal with day-to-day can hurt my job immensely if they go wrong. I hate to say it, but if this app is built to acclimate Google Docs then it should use Chrome’s open source framework to work with the docs.

Really useful for me.

The app is really well designed and works well with mac.I use GoDrive extensively,getting thing done,while also using it for personal projects.I can upload documents for my friend,and there are absolutely no problems whatever.Its also extremely easy to access and use.This app was really well made and its worth the download.Love it!

Just as advertised!

Very good app for working on projects because you can put it offline and work it where ever.This app lets me easily access important work documents and while in the field.Since i use this app,i can update my all documents and send them seamlessly.Such a great tool to have.Love it!

Views Drive documents perfectly.

I give this app five stars because it does what its supposed to do well:give access to documents saved on google drive quickly,allows viewing and sharing of these documents.GoDrive also has a simple easy user face which I really like.Overall very happy with this app.I used it fairly often.

Google Drive Great But no Contact for Youtube Google?

I’m a video producer/writer/and brand ambassador and I really enjoy using Google Drive for saving videos, documents, pictures, and more. I’m having a issue with getting into my Youtube Youtube Account and I’ve tried mulitiple times to get ahold of MSN. You would think with billions of dollars and the best tech team out there, it would be a bit easier or atleast possible to email an actual person about an issue and not just a bot. I’ve been a Youtube User since 2006 and now I can’t login and get intouch with my fans. Very upsetting. willowjon@gmail is my email if anyone at google wants to look into this for me. THanks so much.

Works Great!

Love it…. Easy access and works like a charm… not sure why anyone is having a problme with it.

Doesn’t work at all, can’t even open up any documents

Works great until you actually want to make a new document or open an existing one, then it crashes! About all it’s good for is signing in. So if you want to look at your documents without being able to open them, this is the app for you! Waste of money.

Don’t waste your time

Signed in with my google information and wasted my time. Closes every time you open a document. Did not work for me at all.

shuts down every time I try to open document

I didn’t get to use it very much. Every time I tried to open a document it shut down

I like it but ...

I like this app but it has one serious issue that makes it less than useful for me. If you close the app, you have to log back in every single time you use the app. That is a huge issue and makes it something that is seriously flawed. You can put a google drive link on your desktop or menu bar and achieve the same solution that doesnt require all the repeated logins. Fix that one issue and it becomes awesome. Until then, save the money.

Perfect!

I’ve been using this app for quite a while now and it’s perfect to me. It does exactly what you want, doesn’t crash and makes it simple for me to get to everything— without having to be tied to a browser. Thoroughly enjoy being able to write on this app whenever and wherever! Thanks!
