Cloud Wars Begin! Google Drive Vs. Dropbox Vs. SkyDrive

Google vs. Dropbox vs. skydrive
Google’s most awaited Google Drive has been finally launched. It has brought tough competition for existing veterans like Dropbox and Microsoft’s SkyDrive. It’s important to remember that your usage of this service will control your decision of using these drives: if you want urgent Gmail and Google Docs links? Google Drive might be useful. When you require public link access and a place to share, but you don’t really have interest in content creation, Dropbox is an intelligent choice. If your priority is Windows Phone and Microsoft Office compatibility, best option to opt for is SkyDrive. For details you can check out the table and find out what each drive offers you.
