GDocsOpen: the bridge between your PC and Google Docs

GDocsOpen opens local documents directly in Google Drive. It will then let you edit the document using the Google Drive interface, just like you would in an office application. You are able to save the changes you made to the Google Drive document to your local version with a single click.

Google Docs is handy for editing documents online, and can serve as a complete MS Office alternative.

Typically when you need to quickly open a word document, you will need to first upload the file to your google drive, perform the edits, and then download it back to your local system. But with GDocsOpen, this process is automated.

GDocsOpen will help you eliminate the upload and export part of the process:

  • automatically uploads the file to google docs when you open it
  • lets you synchronize the changes back to your file once you're done editing!

GDocsOpen at a glance:

  • Integrates with your file manager
  • A simple double-click of your document, opens it in Google Docs
  • Has an integrated browser that allows you to synchronize your local and cloud files
  • Allows you to edit the Google document with your browser

With GDocsOpen, you will not need any office suite and you will always have a backup in the cloud!

But if you really love your office suite, then you don't have to worry. You can still use GDocsOpen by right-clicking a document, and selecting "Open with..." GDocsOpen!

Just wanted to tell you how impressed I am with this product. I have been using it for about 3 weeks and just love how easy it is to use. Well done!

I have been looking and looking for an integrated solution, as I am usually attempting to open Microsoft product documents that are attachments to an email (and I use Thunderbird as an email client, so I double-click on the file to open it). Saving the file, then uploading to Google docs was a giant PITA, so I went on the hunt for some way to associate my .doc, .xls, etc. files to Google Docs. And there you were. So far, I'm absolutely thrilled, and I'm so grateful that I found you


This is the Gdocs Killer App I have been searching for!

GDocsOpen allows direct Google Docs editing in a more productive manner, because you can open all documents by just double clicking on them. You also have a history of the most recent documents opened, both local and remote( from your online account).
