Ratings and Reviews
Always have those documents you need
With this, the hassle of not having documents in the right 'place' is over. Other apps I've tried are costly, require accounts or constant internet access to work. Plus, emailing everything back and forth just gets so tiresome - especially with limited internet. So I have always ended up coming back to this app.
I've found it works well with both a computer and tablet, working with word files throughout the day. The accessibility is so freeing. I can write whenever, wherever I want now.
However, I would definitely like to see more formatting options eventually being put in place. Also, I've found that you can't go back to a previous form of the document which has, on occasion, caused problem but nothing too major.
The Handy and the Hassle
Great way of storing information online, along with Google Drive, you can have easy access to documents and information, without the need to carry lap tops etc around.
The collaboration feature of Google documents is real innovation so that multiple people can edit the same document at the same time. Do this live in Google Hangouts if you want to discuss the changes as they are happening.
The downside is the lack of compatibility with Microsoft Word, so when you want to work on documents from other users who send or expect to receive information in Word, you can’t rely on it professionally. Using photos is also an issue as you don’t have the same capability as in Word.
Pros and Cons of Docs
Google docs is very handy as it has eradicated the need for me to email things to myself which it what I used to do when I used pages. I can go into school and have the documents already there in the exact point that I left them, ready for me to carry on. I think one of the downsides is the lack of editing when it comes to pictures. I struggle to work out how to enlarge, minimise them or crop them to how I would like. Printing onto a hard document can also be time consuming as the pages run onto each other and so create a hassle why trying to print them out as pictures don’t match to the text they are meant to as they might run onto the next page. So, although there are a few improvements that need to be made, overall it is very handy and a key app to have if you are a student.
