Question by Mark /

Are there any FREE apps or software that will allow me to sync my MS Word docs to my Android phone (Captivate) via a USB connection? I know it’s old school, but I wanted to keep it “in house”.

    use puresync on your PC.
    add sync job to it  and configure it to autorun when folder is detected( usb is connected). It can even detect if your phone connect as different drive to system.
    it is free application.

    i am using it all the times. it has lot of options. you can customise your sync options as you please.

    Mark, I sure hope you’re still checking this thread.

    Docs-to-Go just got a temporary markdown to $7.99, which is the lowest I’ve ever seen it. If you are an on-the-go word processor user, I highly suggest picking it up at this price.

    Try the Dropbox app for syncing directly between your Android phone and your documents folder.

    It also helps to make the Dropbox folder on your computer the default documents folder.

    Here are directions for that:

    I also use the Google Docs app and the $15 Documents to Go app. They’re both great, but I prefer Dropbox since it allows for offline access. Docs to Go supposed supports offline access, but it has never worked properly for me with Google Docs integration.

    If you have Android 2.1 or up, then use the Google Docs app :
