Google Docs and Apps are a great suite of tools but one draw back with them has always been the inability to access them offline. Now Google is looking at correcting this inability by enabling users to be able to use the apps when offline when an internet connection is not possible.
With the launch of Chrome OS notebook approaching rapidly the new feature allowing users to access documents and application when not connected to the Internet will be a in great demand, and will be especially appreciated by those users that need to access docs and apps while out of reach of a 3G connection or while travelling.
In an interview here last week at at the Google I/O conference, Sundar Pichai, senior vice president of Chrome explained: “We will make them [Google Docs offline apps] available this summer,”
Hopefully we wont have to long to wait as the new line-up of of Chrome OS notebooks from Acer and Samsung, are expected to start arriving in stores next month.
