Sync Office Docs with Google Apps

This may have been around for some time but I just found it!  I really recommend all EdTech students to install this application for sure.  Once this is installed it adds a new tab to your MS Office applications (Word, Excel and Powerpoint) that allows you to save all of your Office documents to your Google Docs account. It also gives you an easy way to access your documents from any computer just by logging into your Google account.

Another nice feature is the document sharing.  Even if two or more people are editing the same document at the same time, Offisync keeps everything updated in real time. This is a great feature for teams who are working on a project together.

It's a free download so why not use it?  I can see a real benefit for students who do homework both at home and school on different computers. This application could put a small dent in flash drive sales!
