Ratings and Reviews
Highly recommended, but definitely room for improvement
Google Docs is very, very useful as a whole, providing services that allow seamless collaboration and that solve many past horrors of word-processors (like the classic “I didn’t save my doc and now it’s gone foreverrrrr!!”).
As great as it is on desktop, I personally found the transfer to mobile devices a little, well, less great. It’s obviously difficult to find an intuitive way to lay out all the functions of Docs on desktop onto a smaller screen, but it’s honestly such a huge hassle navigating comments and suggestions, even when I’m on my iPad. It’s also kind of annoying that I can’t zoom out more on a doc—basically, once the width of the page fills the screen, I can no longer zoom out. This doesn’t sound like a huge deal, but it makes for a lot of tedious scrolling when an already long document has relatively large text.
Additionally, there are these small annoying glitches that occasionally occur. For example, when I was editing a doc, I kept trying to delete a space, but it would always delete the space and the letter behind it. I tried over and over again to no avail... sigh....
It also seems to me that Docs can get kind of slow? I’m on a new device, so the hardware should be working fine, but there’s a huge lag when I’m trying to type in the app.
Other than these few problems, everything else has been working fine and going smoothly.
Simply the best (as cheesy as that sounds)
I’ve moved completely to Docs. Being a writer, I used to use Word, as many do; because it’s the industry standard. But I had more than one computer and phone die on me, taking my work with them. It’s devastating to see weeks and months, even years of your intellectual investment disappear with little hope of resurrection. So I have these dead computers I hold onto like they are in a cryogenic state and someday a cure will be found for them.
Google Docs hasn’t cured my computers past, but they have given us all a vaccine that protects our work from certain death. By using this program, I am able to work anywhere, with my phone or laptop, somebody else’s computer, and with others on line if I want to collaborate or need editing. This freedom allows for amazing capabilities and dynamism for writers everywhere.
The flow is smooth, it updates your and saves continuously, making obsolete the mantra “Remember to save your work often,” which is kinda hard to accept, honestly.
The editing capabilities and tools are great, and it’s so initiative it feels like an Apple product. As a lifelong Apple devotee, I have been impressed over and over again, causing some strange irritation from past prejudice that keeps slipping away the more I use it.
So if you’ve never heard of Docs and have been on the fence, I hope this settles your hesitation. It’s great. It really is.
Google Docs comment
Google Docs is great for Writing papers unlike Microsoft word it saves your progress automatically. And you can always just go on google docs from anywhere and open up the Document. It also is easy to use all you have to do is have a google account/ gmail account and then once ur logged in All you have to do is create a Document and Type and it will save it automatically ur typing so you don’t have to always go to file and hit save to save ur progress like you have to do with Microsoft Word. And the best thing is that you don’t have to look through millions of saved files to find your work. It also tells you when it was last updated so you know if you have two documents that are the same which one is the most recent and updated version and It will always put the document that you last opened at the very top so if you have 100’s of Documents you know which ones are most recent and which ones were older. It has really been useful with school for me and is really organized I highly Recommend getting or using this app and you can also open it on any computer. Like I said it is extremely useful and I highly recommend it. I have been using it ever since I was a freshman in high school and I am now I am in college. I will never use Microsoft word again.
