It took long enough but Writely has been moved to Google’s systems and therefore is now available for everyone who wants an account. For free of course.
Here’s a screen of the main menu which shows and gives you access to all of your docs and the ability to upload new ones and create them from scratch online.
I’m a big fan of Writely. I think it’s another way Google can make the world better and easier. If I was still at college, this would be an invaluable app for me.
I used to have to transport my documents between college and home by a usb stick or by using email which isn’t as good in my opinion.
If I was at college now, I’d like to be able to just create documents online, take a backup of them and be able to edit, make backups at the other end, email, rename, download and edit in word / openoffice, create a pdf from the file or print the file out. I think that’s everything.
The possibilities are exciting and now I’m eagerly anticipating a Google branded presentation creation app to add to Writely and spreadsheets to offer the complete online productivity package to rival office.
