Google купил стартап по имени Upstartle, разрабатывающий online word processor по имени Writely.

Q: What does Writely do?

A: Writely allows you to edit documents online with whomever you choose, and then publish and blog them online.

Q: What exactly can I do with it?

A: You can:

  • Upload Word documents, OpenOffice, RTF, HTML or text (or create documents from scratch).
  • Use our simple WYSIWYG editor to format your documents, spell-check them, etc.
  • Invite others to share your documents (by e-mail address).
  • Edit documents online with whomever you choose.
  • View your documents' revision history and roll back to any version.
  • Publish documents online to the world, or to just who you choose.
  • Download documents to your desktop as Word, OpenOffice, RTF, PDF, HTML or zip.

Q: What will it cost in the future?

A: Our hope is to have the basic service be free, with some extra features requiring a reasonable subscription fee. We will also be charging license fees to corporations and partners.
