I use Google Docs and Zoho Docs often for word processing and sharing of files. These are cloud-based applications that easily allow my editor and I to share files while we are working on them, before publishing in this newsletter. We also occasionally share files with guest authors and others. It is a great convenience and we find it much more useful than sending attached files in email. However, both services require you to be online to use them That's not a problem most of the time, but how do I access the files when at 34,000 feet on an airliner?
Google is creating the solution. Sundar Pichai, Google's senior vice president of Chrome, recently said, "We will make them [Google Docs offline apps] available this summer. We've all been using it internally. It's imminent. We want to make sure they're good."
