Default Open Files Off-Line With The New Google Docs

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://lifehacker.com/5881349/google-docs-for-android-update-provides-offline-access' target='_blank'>http://lifehacker.com/5881349/googl...-offline-access</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Google has released a pretty useful update for their Android version of Google Docs, providing offline access for your files and a better overall experience for tablet users by providing high-resolution versions of your documents."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//adt/auto/1328201676.usr309.png" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>This was a much needed update!&nbsp; To not have access to files when you have no network is just dumb.&nbsp; Large collections of media or things you don't need often, maybe that can stay in the cloud, but small text files, documentation, or notes, I want available all the time.&nbsp; It sounds like the synchronization is done well also.&nbsp; I played with it a bit and it's easy enough to save a file locally as shown in the screen shot above.&nbsp; Improving the app for tablet owners was a very smart idea as well.&nbsp; Really, I think that should have been done when the first Xoom was released but better late than never.</p>

Whoa! You mean not everyone has connectivity all the time, everywhere? Who'd have thought.

Guess though, that folks are going to need to do some file management, because if you have everything syncing to physical media on your device, what's the point of a cloud, and where are those terabyte SD cards?
