Alright, enough soapboxing. Free has value, and Google isn’t afraid to give away products in exchange for your loyalty and everything there is to know about you. RocketDocs can make using Google easier and more fun.
Drive To The Docs
When it comes to using Google, and there are times when I must diminish my self worth to check email, Google +, Reader, Docs, and store files on Drive, the browser annoys me.
So, I have a collection of Mac apps which help me to master and tame Google’s free offerings without using Chrome or any other browser.
RocketDocs is one of the Mac tools which manages Google Drive and Docs in a way that Mac users will appreciate.
What it does is rather straightforward. Create new documents. Use Google applications from the Menubar and the Dock. Even use Google Docs hotkeys.
Even better, switch between different Google accounts.
See? It even looks like a real Google app.
RocketDocs features typical Mac drag and drop to upload files, or grab any document on Google from the Menubar.
There’s even a fullscreen mode, ala apps for Lion and Mountain Lion, which obscures the clutter on your Mac’s screen and gives you a full frontal of Google taking over your life.
Alright, you know what I mean. It bothers me that Google can search through my online laundry, track my whereabouts online, and sell the collected information to the highest bidder.
Actually, they probably sell it to every bidder.
Still, if you’re on a budget, and need to store files online, and you’re bored by the browser interface the few dollars you’ll spend on RocketDocs will make using Google’s free service less nauseating.
