Finally, a web app is available (and reliably) to access all of your information on the go without Internet access.
Google has launched “Offline Google Mail” and “Google Calendar” through the Chrome Web Store for offline use. Google Docs should be rolling out in the very near future.
After you install the Offline Google Mail app from the Chrome Web Store you can launch your Google Mail (Gmail and Google Apps) and view and reply to all of your email. After you regain Internet connection all of your mail will be sent and archived, accordingly. The interface is not the same as the standard Gmail or Google Apps interface and resembles more of a tablet or mobile interface.
“Google Calendar” works seamlessly to the online version and the user interface is identical whether you are online or offline, with the exception of a warning that you are working offline.
There is only one thing that you should know. When you enable offline access to mail, the mail is stored locally on your computer so you should not install Offline Google Mail on a public or shared computer.
So far the “Offline Google Mail” has worked great and I am VERY excited for this new feature!
