Hey everyone, my first post here :O. Anyways, just recieved my Google Spreadsheets invitation today and thought I would show you all some screenshots for people who are wondering what its really like. The actual interface is just like any other Google Ajax project, like GMail and Google Calendar, very clean and easy to use. The only real downside to this, as far as i can see atm compared to Excel, is that you cannot produce graphs or use macro's. apert from this it is a very strong competiter, especially seeing it doesnt hold a price tag of around £200. Front Page Very clean and easy to navigate around. File Menu In somewhat a different place to most pcomputer apps but fits in with the style. The choice of options allows you to import Excel files including CSV's, which encourages former Excel uses to use GS. Format Menu A nice feature, quickly change the format of selected cell to common formats (However, it doesnt include £'s ). Formatted Data Once you press enter, it auto-formats. There is however a bug, i typed in 5.89 and gave me $6 . Although it is still in BETA like the rest of Google though . Cell Formula's A spreadsheet wouldn't be a spreadsheet without cell formulas, and Google has not left them out . You can type them in exactly like you can in Excel, you can even select the cells with your mouse you want to multiple, add, subtract, etc.. together. Cell Formula's taken to the extreme For those of you who like to go to the extreme and hope for the best, Google has added an extensive library of formulas you can add into your cell. Only the top few have been shown, theres another 50, nearing 100 or so below that. Overall, for a free product, Google Spreadsheets is amazing. The portability and free access is what really is going for GS, without it, Google may not be able to compete with the Excel might, but i feel it wont be too long before Google Office is released and sets out to knock Microsoft off its gold mine. I also believe Google Spreadsheets will soon have a flash graph feature, they know how to do them and has been shown on Google Analytics and Google Finance, only then will it be able to truly beat Excel.
