CloudOn brings Microsoft Office(R) to your favorite device, and now your desktop computer. All for free!

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

The CloudOn apps have been amazing tools, and now they just added a web log in, so you can use the CloudOn service right through a web browser on your desktop computer. ClouOn connects to Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, and SkyDrive so it allows you to create or edit Microsoft Word®, Excel® and PowerPoint® on your tablet, phone, or computer browser.

Yes, I love Google Apps, but this is one tool you will want to have in your arsenal too.

You will have to download the browser Plug in, then run the program to install the browser plug in.  Once installed... you will be up and going editing Microsoft documents. As shown below, I am editing a Microsoft docx file located in my Dropbox all through my Chrome Browser.




Apps and web log in:


The Bad news:
They currently only support Chrome and Safari for Windows or Mac.  What... no Chromebook support!!! (I love the Chromebooks!)  Hopefully this will be coming in the future.

Along comes CloudOn Pro:
CloudOn Pro offers more features, for a slight fee.  What Features Does Purchasing CloudOn Pro Enable?  For a limited time they are offering CloudOn Pro at a special promotional price of $2.99/month or $29.99/year.

Conclusion:
If you have not tried the apps, and now their web interface... now is the time!  But, if you are reading this CloudOn... give us our Chromebook support.
