Tool one: Google Docs
Nearly everyone now a days have an google account. Well google has cleverly integrated an online Word, Excel and PowerPoint tools. No need to install application on my machines, just open your web browser and login to google account and go to ‘Documents’ and presto!

Tool two: Dropbox
Dropbox is an online cloud storage tool. Signing up is free and you instantly receive 2gigs storage. Once signed up you can receive another 250mb by going through their step by step guide through. This involve spreading the word and encouraging to get your colleagues and friends onboard. The incentive is to invite as many people to sign up and for every recommendation signed up you automatically receive 250mb. Its brilliant because you can clock up your storage space to max of 10gigs.
The best way of sharing working files and docs is by installing the Dropbox app on your desktop.
Create a folder in your Dropbox folder, right click and invite to share with your friends and family. Your friends and family will receive an email invite and you’re done. Whatever files you drop or update, Dropbox will automatically sync data on all everyone’s machine. Magic!
