Google Drive has no official launch date, but the official app appears to have been spotted in the wild.

There have been plenty of rumors about the imminent arrival of Google Drive, but TechCrunch has allegedly picked up something a bit more substantial. A download link provided by an anonymous source served up a Google Drive app for Mac OS X. At the moment, the app doesn't do much of anything: try to start it up, and after entering your credentials you're alerted that Google Drive has yet to be activated for your account.

While the app is something of a dead end, its existence fits neatly into the predictions we've seen for an incoming launch. Just a few days ago, online diagramming service Lucidchart accidently leaked information about Google Drive integration. And earlier today, a report from The Next Web claimed that Google Drive will be launching sometime next week, and offering 5GB of free storage. Mere coincidences? Possibly – we've yet to see any definitive proof that Google Drive is launching any time soon, but all of these coincidences are starting to pile up.
