For all that I love office productivity software, I love it in the cloud as well. In my opinion, Google Docs is a great, free offering for simple office productivity software in the cloud.
I keep a couple of personal spreadsheets that I update and share with my husband, and I love the online forms capability that comes standard with the spreadsheets offering and use them with a few clients.
There has been some discussion about up-and-coming features that will be available in Google Docs including:
- Offline mode (not dependent on Google Gears – thank goodness)
- Cloud print – print from anywhere
- Access Google Docs from inside MS Office with a plugin – open and save functionality
- Return of the preview of txt file function (this was available a year ago, and is back due to popular demand)
There is a more detailed version of the above points available at The Business Insider if you want to head over there.
