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!
