If, like us, you often share large documents with colleagues, Dropbox is a great way to share content.

One of the best things about Google Drive is how much free storage it offers. You get 15GB of free storage space, which in comparison to Dropbox’s 2GB and Apple’s 5GB seems surprisingly generous. The downside is if you have loads of emails in your Gmail account, because those free 15GB are shared with your Gmail or Googlemail account.
