Use Gmail, Docs, Google Calendar Offline With the Chrome App

Last week Google launched the Offline Google Mail Chrome App. The app which is available for free in the Chrome Web Store will allow you to read and respond to messages in Gmail even if you don’t have an Internet connection. When you get to a place where you do have an Internet connection your messages will be sent.

Items in your Google Docs and Google Calendar accounts can also be viewed offline now. Unfortunately, Google still hasn’t made it possible for you to create new content in those services without an Internet connection. Hopefully that will appear soon.

Applications for Education
When I read about the new Google Mail Chrome App I immediately thought of my students who spend close to an hour on a school bus each morning and afternoon. The app could be useful for those students who want to get some work done during that time when they don’t have Internet access.
