Google Drive

Google Drive is arguably one of the most popular apps for students, personally I used Google Drive all throughout high school. It is a service that allows users to create and share files (including photos and videos) for free through a google cloud service. It offers a services similar to Microsoft word through Google docs and Microsoft power point through Google PowerPoint as well as basic email all in one application on your desktop, and laptop device. Unlike the other apps I mentioned in this blog, this is available through all laptops as the app is found via Google Lastly, its email service is the well known Gmail which many people already frequently use.

One drawback to this service is you simply have to create a Gmail account which you then use on google drive. This is a small price to pay for such free great services that can greatly help students improve work quality and convenience. You can also download Google Docs, Google PowerPoint, and Google Drive individually on mobile devices via the app store, and play store; so you can view all your work on the go, which helps you organize what work needs to be done. Google Drive starts out your free account with 15GB free of online storage, and has more available for other prices, it has 3 available plans one being 100GB of storage for 1.99$ a month, 1TB for $9.99 per month, 10TB for $99.99 per month, although for a basic student to store his files 15GB should be more than enough! Enjoy the free service everyone!
