    "Look, if I want to use a spreadsheet, or even view a presentation, I'm not doing it on a phone. Give me a big monitor with large crisp letters! For people not like me, this is okay, though apparently not exactly intuitive."

    "This is a good solution to the problem since it is an on the go app of your Microsoft files. If you do not use Microsoft this may not be the best option. It had really great reviews and over 5000 of them showing that it does in fact work for many others and that is really is one of the best programs one could use. "

    "Google Drive has been very good as my go to file sharing solution. I use DropBox often but I like how Google Drive auto syncs my Samsung Galaxy Tab with my desktop and my S6. It's really convenient to be able to upload and share photos right away as well as work documents that I can pass along when I'm working from home and need to have it at work the next day on my desktop there. I like the easy organization of files and best of all I get a lot of storage space with Google Drive. It's my preference for my home office, and definitely for work too."

    "This is a fantastic tool that lets you access other computers or allow another user to access your computer securely over the Internet. I put it on my android to access my work computer and it works fantastic. It was easy to set up, its stable and its saves me a great deal of time. I can access my work computer from anywhere and am able to keep working or look at something while I'm at remote job sites."
