What can you use the app for?

CompareMyDocs is a useful online office application; it’s a word processing tool that does much more than many other online word processors. Compared to Google Documents and similar tools CompareMyDocs offers easier tools for collaborating with colleagues wherever they are in the world. Invited users don't have to register an account for example. The developers of the application have also suggested that they will release a desktop version of the application in the near future which will be based on the Adobe AIR platform. The same features will be included in the desktop version, including the popular drag and drop functionality. Many text flow plans include support for Microsoft word documents which can be imported. They are also working to provide access to other formats such as Google documents by implementing the Google docs API.

What does it cost to use the application?

Who would you recommend the application to?
