If you happen to like it, we’ve got 25 copies of GDocsDrive worth $475 to give away!
Contrary to what the name may suggest, GDocsDrive does not take up a drive letter on your computer, and is not mapped to a local folder. Instead, it’s a self-contained Windows application. Let’s take a quick look at the main window:
To the left is the folder tree, just like in the Web interface. Navigation is quite snappy – folders are not preloaded but load right when you open them, so the entire tree feels responsive and does not take a long time to cache on startup.
When you double-click a document, it opens using the Web interface. But if you just want to download it as a Word document for local editing, you can right-click it, open the Export menu, and select one of the numerous options Google Docs offers:
To upload a file, simply drag and drop it onto the app. You would then get a window similar to this:
You can also upload entire folders. I was unable to upload files to my Google Apps account, but my “regular” Google account worked without a hitch.
You can also share (and unshare) files right from within GDocsDrive:
You can also rename documents, and create new folders. Interestingly, I was unable to move a document into a folder just by dragging it onto the folder. Other than that, I could do pretty much do anything I could think of, and it all feels like I’m working with a desktop app rather than a Web-based one.
GDocsDrive retails for $19.00 and you may purchase a copy here. Otherwise, join our giveaway to win a free copy!
