Manage online Google Docs files with Microsoft Office

Google Docs on your desktop

GDocsDrive Team announced today the release of GDocsDrive Ver2.0 - a Google Docs desktop utility. With GDocsDrive, now users can modify their online Google Docs files using local software and manage them conveniently from local desktop.

Google Docs is a great place to store, organize, and share files online. However, for complex documents and spreadsheets, Google Docs still has a long way to go to catch Microsoft Office. In addition, it only works with files converted to Google Docs format.

GDocsDrive allows users to modify their online files with either Google Docs or local software. For example, users can use Notepad to open an online text file, use Paint to modify an online picture, or use Microsoft Office to modify a Google Docs document. When users modify the Google Docs file with a local app, the file is downloaded to the local temp folder, and automatically synced back to Google Docs after the modification.

GDocsDrive also releases users from having to convert all the documents to Google Docs format when uploading them. No more worrying about formatting issues and missing styles while converting -- Users can backup all files with their original formats and be able to modify them any time.

Integrated with Windows Explorer, GDocsDrive provides the convenience of a simple backup, share or conversion of a local file from its right-click menu.

GDocsDrive is a very small and versatile tool that uses very little of system resources to run (about 5MB of memory). It is completely based on Google Document List API 3.0 and already listed on Google Apps Marketplace as a Google Docs client software .

“I always like to backup all my files and photos on Google Docs, incase I lose them at some point. In comparison to Dropbox or Live Mesh, Google's online storage solution is much cheaper and also extendable. However, I still prefer to modify my documents using the more powerful Microsoft Office, not online Google Docs. ” said Jerry Wang, the head of GDocsDrive Team.

He added, “So, we made this Google Docs tool based on Google Document List API and integrated it with Windows Explorer. Through this Google Docs client, users get all the benefits of Google Docs from the comfort of local desktop, as well as several other useful features.”

The price of GDocsDrive is $19.99 USD for one time payment with future upgrades. Free for 14-day evaluation.
