Very functional app, useful for anyone who stores as much of their life on their google account as I do. Usefulness is much higher when you also have the google drive app- I think they could and should be the same, although it can be nice to keep a document open while browsing drive folders. Commenting can get a little weird, and you have to go to a print preview to see where page divisions fall in your document (unless you manually entering page breaks). One odd problem I have, when I'm typing a contraction that starts with I, I'll type lowercase i, then the apostrophe ', then click on the correct suggested word on the keyboard. But instead of changing my i to a capital I while adding the new letters like every other app does, it just puts in a space and leaves the i' there. Overall though very useful.
Some good, some bad
Google Docs is very easily accessible and shareable, especially considering how much we use Google in our daily lives. It's revolutionized how my peers and I over time have collaborated on group projects. I do wish that changing Google Docs from its original base settings were easier, however. If I want it to show a word count or if I want to add my own font, it's exceedingly difficult whereas with Word I could just download a font that someone made on the internet without it having to be approved by Docs and the word count option was easily found in the tool bar. Still, the flexibility and compatibility of Google Docs with and other apps and other electronics makes up for a lot of it. I wish the customizable settings were easier to fiddle with and gave me more free range to explore and create.
Google Docs Is Cool.
I am a student, and I must say, there is no better way to type a paper for class than to use Google Docs. For starters, it's FREE. No paying for office 365 or anything. If you have a google account, you have Google Docs. And if not, they are easy to set up. It took me no more than 15 minutes to set up my account, get the details in, and start typing away. It was surprisingly easy to switch from my Mac, to my school's PCs, to my iPad Pro and Keyboard.
This thing probably helped with so many assignments. Book reports, essays, long speeches, etc. It helps a lot to have a free word processor that works with every device I have. So all I have to say is, good on you, google!
