If you are using Google Apps, this could be of interest: Memeo Connect Reader for iPad has been announced earlier today. As its name indicated, the application connects to your Google account and syncs files in popular formats like PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Jpg etc (all the formats natively supported by the iPad OS). Once the files are on the iPad, they can be looked at in all their glory. The viewing demo was working flawlessly – check the video in the extended post.
You won’t be able to edit the documents, but that’s in line with our assessment that the iPad is primarily a media consuming device, even if can be used for casual updates. Memeo Connect Reader provides a unique access to your documents stored in Google Apps and because it’s free, there’s really no reason not to try it (the app has been approved by Apple already). If you did not know, Memeo also has a suite of software that can provide the same functionalities (and more!) to computers.
