As I told before Google maybe do some slight modification to Google docs platform but the Docs service will be there with more rich options.Google Drive will allow all your google docs data to be synced to your tablets, smartphones and PC.
Google Drive Apps
Google Drive applications already goes live for MAC OS X.You will be able to download the application from the apple store and you can install too but it will be in idle mode on your device.Presently it showing “Google Drive is not yet enabled for your account.” I think this will be removed once the official launch will take place and google activate the service from their end.Google may be pushing out the android app too along with the official Google Drive launch.
