Using Google Docs on iOS and Android. Almost no foul language.

by admin

For a year I deliberately refrained from buying a tablet. During that year, I seriously considered buying one 3 times to replace my laptop for travel and other occasions where a computer is inconvenient but I need to be able to deal with work issues.
And every time I ran into the same problem. All of the SaaS services I needed, I could either use from my cell phone, or they were uncritical for me. Except for one, Google.Docs. And since for some reason (partly – work-related, partly – purely objective) to store and edit documents I use a service from Google, this factor was critical. The only, seemingly inconsequential, software factor, not limited by the capabilities of operating systems and hardware. But it crossed out all the other advantages of tablet mobility for me.
For a whole year, tablets beckoned, but in fact were useless to me. No color, no taste, no smell… Until Yuppies came along.
The life-giving drink was a very simple SaaS service, both in terms of creation and use – cloudHQ, which, among other things, allows you to synchronize Google documents with Dropbox. About that a little later, but for now about the sad stuff.
The sad humor of the story is that even a year ago there were no obstacles to this possibility. But there was :
The official Google Docs app for Android, which can do nothing more than display a list of your files.
2. A mobile browser-based version of Google Docs, in which changing more than 100 characters of a file gave me a headache and a persistent desire to smash my phone against the wall.
The best office applications for phones, which could do nothing more than make necessary edits to the file, in the presence of Internet. Not without foul language either.
4) One rather crappy application which could open google documents offline, but didn’t have a decent file editor.
By combining all this, it was generally possible to use the document service. But only the strongest of the level 80 elves with an iron emmunity to any computer perversion were capable of this.
I was left gnashing my teeth as I looked at tablet users with black envy, remembering the only reason I couldn’t use their mobility.
Three days ago I learned about cloudHQ. The day after I saw the service in action, I bought an Android tablet without a second thought.
The idea is simple. If you can’t use Google Docs directly, you can sync your Google docs with Dropbox. For tablets and smartphones, it works as follows. You install Dropbox on your device and, in a few clicks, set it up to sync with your Google account at cloudHQ You can edit documents with any mobile office app. CloudHQ takes care of making sure your Dropbox folder is always in sync with your Google account.
For complete mobility and the ability to manage my documents without going online, I installed Dropsync. The app allows you to keep up-to-date copies of your files on your mobile device without having to download each one manually.
I’m not sure if this particular cloudHQ feature will be very popular in the future (I’m still hoping Google will finally release something that allows you to use their service on their operating system), but in general the direction cloudHQ is heading in the right direction. Such services help solve simple but critical tablet business problems and manage your digital world without being tied to a specific piece of hardware.
Thanks to them I can say : I had a work day without a laptop today, and the tablet handled most of my work tasks perfectly.
