CloudPull backs up Google Docs to Mac

updated 08:55 pm EST, Wed January 12, 2011

Can saves as MS Office files for compatibility

Golden Hill Software has released CloudPull, a backup application for Google Docs that saves documents, spreadsheets and presentations locally to the Mac as Microsoft Office files. Like Time Machine, CloudPull backs up automatically once every hour and maintains prior revisions. It can also retain documents that have been deleted from Google Docs, and supports up to 10 Google accounts.

CloudPull also converts drawings made in Google Docs as PNG image files; other files are retained in their native formats. The software supports previewing backups via QuickLook and searching for document by filename. The program allows users to keep up-to-date, offline copies of their Google Docs work files without having to remember to manually create backups, meaning files can be worked on without internet access and uploaded back to Google Docs later, or shared with colleagues in Microsoft Office format which is compatible with many Mac and PC programs.

The software requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 and at least one Google Docs account, and costs $25 from either the company's website or the Mac App Store. A free 30-day trial is available, and the company hosts a screencast showing exactly how the software works.
