Why Is An Internet Connection Required To Use CloudOn?

CloudOn requires an internet connection to enable you to open, work with, and share updates to your files -- Microsoft Word®, Excel®, and PowerPoint®, Adobe Reader, and several image formats -- also connecting you to your favorite cloud storage provider. Accessing these powerful applications "in the cloud" allows your device's hardware to run independent of the physical requirements such applications would typically demand in terms of memory, processing power, energy use, and so on. This internet connectivity allows you to share your files from within the CloudOn workspace as well.
