Meagen Eisenberg's review of Google Docs
Just used their spreadsheet solution to collaborate with colleagues and it was so cool. Loved that I could see in real-time the edits my colleagues were making, but have the ...

Google Docs is a good solution for working on documents as a team. It’s easy to see who is working on each section, and the automatic versioning is quite helpful. I also like that my documents are available on any device with internet access.
Google Docs does lack a lot of the formatting abilities of other word processors. I find it much easier to copy and paste the finished team document into a desktop program for some adjustments before printing/submitting the final document.(more...)

Although Google Docs has now been replaced with Google Drive, its core functionality is still in place within Google’s new web app. There is no easier-to-use tool for online document (word processing, presentation, spreadsheet, etc.) collaboration.(more...)

Google Docs is exceedingly handy for collaborative projects (I use it to show my essays to my pre-readers) and for get-to-it-anywhere dropbox-type content management--since it’s a web app, I don’t need to install a word processor unless I’m going to be there longer than a few days.

Convenient especially if your company operates through a gmail email system. In terms of positives on the system overall, most of them are attached to the gmail system itself (that is where instant messaging and customized display would come into the picture). Cloud capabilities are a plus as well as it will allow you to access documents from different locations, and allow users to share documents and edit them. The major downside to Google Docs is the formatting capabilities. Most of the time I have found that I lose the formatting of my document when I save it, or it skews spacing.(more...)

Cloud computing is a plus. However, the compatibility and transference of Google Docs to other document programs leaves me wanting more. All in all, if I were to fully commit to Google products (Chromebook, Google Docs) and cut my ties with Microsoft Office, I would probably be a happier camper.(more...)

Google Docs is an amazing tool that allows those that may not be able to access Microsoft or Apple office applications to do so without having to pay for license fees. One can become more involved with the connected world simply by registering an account with Google. This tool is helping in making technology more accessible to the average consumer. Overall it is a great alternative to expensive software, as it performs similarly to those "licensed"product and seamlessly integrates the work one does on Google Docs with Microsof Office and iWorks for Apple.(more...)
