How to upload Files to Google Drive from nexus 7

Like Dropbox, sugarsync and Box service, Google Drive is a cloud storage that allows you to upload files from your Android Phone/tablet using client app, such as Word/excel/PDF documents, music file, or photos.

Here is the step by step on how to upload files from nexus 7 to Google Drive
* Make sure the device has been installed Google Drive app for Android. Open the Google Drive app and login to your account. Tap on the three dots in the upper right to open the menu.
* Select "New..." 》"Upload", choose the other app to browse the file.  For a photo, use Gallery app. For different file type, use a installed file manager, such as ASTRO, ES or OI. It seems to be impossible to select multiple photos at once at the moment..
* Once you've choosed the photo or document file, you can reanme it, or check the conversion option to convert it (text document, spreadsheet, or compatible presentation) to a Google Docs file. Then tap on OK button to start uploading.

I am actually having issues uploading it to a folder. The app just throws it in the root of my Google Drive and I have to move it into the right folder. It doesn't allow upload an entire folder and is lack of Auto upload photos feature.
