According to Google, "Google Docs is a suite of products that lets you create different kinds of online documents, work on them in real time with other people, and store your documents and your other files - all online, and all for free. With an Internet connection, you can access your documents and files from any computer, anywhere in the world. (There's even some work you can do without an Internet connection!)"
RocketDocs allows the user to go to the menu bar, access the app's drop-down menu and instantly create a new Document, Presentation, Spreadsheet, Form, Table, or Drawing. Also available from the convenient menu is a list of all the most recently opened Google Docs documents from which the user can choose and quickly open any one.
RocketDocs is fully compatible with both Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6) and Mac OS X Lion (10.7), supporting Lion's full screen mode and Multi-Touch Gestures.
