Soonr rolls up project collaboration and document management with file syncing and online backup in a single platform--reducing the need to go to multiple sites and vendors. Its free Android app recently added integrated editing on Honeycomb-based tablets for Microsoft Office, Excel, and PowerPoint files--whether connected to the Web or not--to improve mobile collaboration.
