Best Windows 8 Apps
15 March 2016
Download this app if you like having to redo all of your work and edits, because it probably won't save changes to your Gdrive so everything you've worked on will disappear! Huge waste of time. Terrible. Worst app I've ever encountered.

How do I empty trash?

Loved it, but now it refuses to start the app and crashes upon launch
edit: 5 weeks later
found that disabling wifi enabled me to start the app, re-signin, and works again as normal. Still not as an stable but works for what I need it for

Videos buffer, finish buffering & then buffer again, and again and again! WTF

The product works well, yet I am missing a search feature. For this, my use will be VERY limited.

Great app to use right up until it doesn't sync local changes and you lose all your data. Whether or not 'syncing local changes' will actually do what it says is inconsistent. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. It's a shame, because everything else about the app functions perfectly. Unfortunately, being able to keep whatever edits I write to my documents is more important. Don't recommend until this reliability issue is resolved.

If you try to share a doc, all the other person gets is a half dozen xml and no text.

On my Surface, I can't access a file I want to work on.

I use this on my Laptop and it helps me concentrate on my work much more than something in a browser. The only problem I have with it is that when I saved a document and later loaded it the spacing was very messed up. I don't know if it is caused by Libre Office or GDrive's syncing, though it looked fine in browser.

I thought the UI for this was terrific. But then as of this morning I'm showing zero content in my drive. It shows it as empty.

tried loading 3 different times and it will not. tried loading trial version

Tried uploading my file through the app on my start screen and it could not be viewed through the browser. The Google drive browser popped up with an error message. We were able to then upload through the browser with no difficulties.

Won't sort how I want, sorts however it decides randomly. I want to alphabetize but it won't let me. I hate it but I paid for it and I can't use it, because it's too time consuming to find folder without alphabetical option.

You have received a 1 star rating only because a 0 star rating is not available.
After opening a file, making changes, saving it, and then clicking the Sync Local Changes button within the application, my changes are not being synced. The first time this happened I had to redo the hours of work I had already previously done. The second time, I copied and pasted my changes into a separate file just in case the changes did not sync. When I reopened the file, the changes were not there. If this application is not going to work, then there is no need to continue its use and I am inclined to request a refund of the purchase price as the product seems to be defective.

Does not support the File Save Picker contract that will let me save back to Google Drive from other applications.

Worksheets I add to a workbook in Excel do not sync to the Drive service. I just lost hours and hours of work on a new sheet I hadn't synced since beginning it and through subsequent experimentation discovered that this was why. Please fix! And is there any way to recover such a thing? Cached documents or something? Excel doesn't have it in the recovery list. Acck!

This app has performed great but for some reason whenever I upload a file from my tablet is does not show up as the same format. I have no idea what is going on lately but it needs to get fixed.

Bought the surface with the hope of integrating office with Google drive. The native Google app is horrible. Thank you for making this. Well worth the $4

I just got the day trial to edit files and folders and it does not make sense to me. I see fewer options to work in Google Drive, not more, than prior to my free trial. I see no value to me today. I is not user friendly. Bob Thomas

I am very pleased with this app. It does exactly what I need it to do. Much thanks to the developer! Now if only I can coax the individual into writing something for Dropbox. ;)

Does not work properly and open all folders

Keeps everything nice and organized :)

I tried rainbow drive, which had way better reviews, but it had way more flaws than this program. Solid app that allows you to do whatever you would want.

Twice so far this has lost one of my files. I would download, edit in Word over a period of a few hours or even a day or so, and then upload. No error on the upload, but the update never makes it to Google Drive and subsequent download attempts fail. No trace of the changes to the file anywhere on disk.

Even though there is an option to list folders alphabetically, folders seem to list with no type of order. Please fix and I will re-evaluate this rating.

This app worked great until it started making my Microsoft documents unusable. I loved working on my google drive documents offline, but when I opened a PowerPoint with the app, it made the document unusable in the future. It may have been my fault because I did not sync it, however I did not change any parts of the document. I simply opened it up. Even if I did make changes, the developer should have just downloaded the file so I can edit it without changing anything on Google Drive, but they did, and now, the files I opened up are unusable.
