Bring Google Docs to the Ubuntu Desktop with GWOffice

Google Docs is a great and capable office suite, but its browser-bound nature puts many users off of using it as a full-on LibreOffice replacement.

Google have recently announced offline support for the web-based suite, but for many this still won’t be entirely ideal.

So enter GWOffice – a desktop-based Google Docs editor that is in development as part of the Ubuntu App Showdown.

GWOffice lets you create new text, spreadsheet and presentation documents, as well as edit those you have already created and saved in your Google Drive, straight from your desktop; no web browser window needed.

Admittedly you’re still using a web app, but GWoffice tries hard to disguise this by theming Google Docs with Ubuntu-style colours, and integrating the Google Docs menu into the App Menu.
