If you live on that border town between MS and Google and use Google Documents then there’s a new Windows Phone app for you. It’s called GDocs and it’s free. Here are the features:

GDocs is a simple client for Google docs for windows phone. Currently it supports:
* Viewing documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings and forms.
