Gmail just keeps getting better…
File attachments drag-and-drop and insert invitation link are now integrated with Gmail and Google Calendar.
Google just updated Google Docs last week, check out Tech-Rewind Volume 2 for more information on those updates. Google is constantly updating Google Apps with features to compete with Microsoft Office. I have tested both features today, and both worked flawlessly. The company I work for uses Outlook. I sent an invite from my personal Gmail account to my work email and both calendars added the event successfully. I then composed a new email in Gmail, and I was able to drag and drop a file effortlessly into an email. The only catch about these 2 features are you have to be using Google Chrome or Firefox 3.6. I used Google Chrome to test this.
I have not abandoned Microsoft Office completely, but at home I do find myself opening Outlook less, and using Google Docs a lot more than Microsoft Word. I am hoping to someday see a Google Docs App that can edit .mdb files (Microsoft Access files). With being able to access all my documents and email anywhere I go without having to use portable media or remoting into my home computer, Google Apps are growing on me more and more every day. I hope we continue to see Google Docs coming out with these consistent improvements and updates.
