Integrated with GoogleDocs and DropBox

rollApp Inc. announced the release of a free beta service that provides users with online editions of Open Office, integrated with GoogleDocs and DropBox. It offers SMBs and independent professionals a turn-key solution that combines rich functionality of the traditional office suites with all the benefits of cutting-edge cloud platforms: on-demand scalability, anywhere access, no install/support pain, and reduced cost.

The look and feel and the functionality of the software running through rollApp will mirror the original.
