By now you know that Google Drive is here, and that means its time for another round of versus. The cloud storage client’s launch means that market veterans have some new competition, including Dropbox and Microsoft’s SkyDrive. It’s important to remember that how you’re going to use this service will sway your decision: want immediate Gmail and Google Docs tie-ins? Google Drive might make sense. Need public link access and a spot to share, but don’t really care about content creation? Then Dropbox is a smart choice. And if Windows Phone and Microsoft Office compatibility is a must for you… well, I think you’ve got your answer. Check out what each of these applications brings to the table.
