Google Cloud Connect

Yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised after using Google Cloud Connect for the first time.

For those who don’t know, Google Cloud Connect is a tiny application that integrates with Microsoft Office 2003/2007/2010 and syncs your Office documents with Google Docs via your Gmail account. That is as simple as can be explained.

Yesterday I used it for the first time while finishing up my assignment for Uni. The assignment is to be submitted in Word.doc (Office 2003) format but when I typed, all my changes were synced to my Google account and the assignment automatically backed up. Losing an assignment? Thing of the past. Lost a portion of work? Go back to a previous version. Need to collaborate? Use your own Office applications. Offline? It syncs when you log on.

It’s worth a look. Take a leap.
