With Google docs you can also set up simple forms for the spreadsheet
that can act like an app on your ipad or iphone...or any mobile device
to quickly and simply enter data into your spreadsheet. I am moving to
this kind of system so all my employees will have a form on there
phone for planting data, watering data, weeding data, harvesting data,
packing data, and i have one for sales data. Very simple.
