As you may recall, in the past few weeks, we here at WorldStart have told you about certain aspects of the Google Docs and Spreadsheets program and we have done some tips on the Google Presentations application. And ever since you all saw those articles in the newsletter, you have been asking for more. You seem to really enjoy these programs from Google, so I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out what else I could tell you about. Well, I think I have finally come up with something. Yep, today I’m going to tell you all about Google Writely. Let’s go!
Just in case you’ve never heard of Google Writely, the easiest way to describe it is that it’s a word processing program. It is managed by Google and it is part of the whole Google Docs and Spreadsheets package. Now, I know you’re probably saying that you already have a word processing program, so why should you try this one? Well, in my opinion, the coolest thing about Google Writely is that it works right through your Web browser. You can’t say that about your other program, can you?! And that’s just the beginning of what this application can do for you. Please keep reading to learn about some of the other features Google Writely has to offer!
As with all the Google Docs programs, Google Writely is fully collaborative. With it, you can share your documents with others and collaborate back and forth with them in real time. So, if you feel that you need a second opinion on one of your projects, Google Writely has the tools you need to get that done quickly. With Google Writely, you can also save your documents to your desktop, you can publish them to the Web or a blog and it’s even compatible with MS Word. To access Google Writely, you need to have a Google account set up, but once you do, just visit this Web site, sign in and you’ll be good to go. You don’t have to do anything else! Plus, your documents will be secure in Google’s hands. Give it a try today. It just doesn’t get any better!
