Google Drive iOS app is ’98 percent done’—launching soon

With the launch of the highly anticipated Google Drive earlier today, many iOS users were left wondering where their iOS-optimized app is. Do not fear, because AllThingsD confirmed with Google that the Google Drive iOS app is launching soon. In an interview with Google SVP of Chrome and Apps Sundar Pichai, the executive told AllThingsD that the iOS is “98 percent done, and it will be here soon.” Soon is hopefully this week.

Luckily for Android users, Google launched an app alongside Google Drive. After playing with the app this afternoon, I can tell you it is very sleek. It is an awesome solution for managing files—especially documents. Google also launched a Mac app, which is useful.

After years of rumors, Google Drive launched today. It gave users 5GB free, which is currently the most in the industry. An iOS app is definitely welcome, and we will keep a close eye out to let you know when it is here.
