Advertisement Click on the image above for a closer look. The biggest selling point for Sync.in, clean and easy to use interface aside, is how simple it is to invite someone to collaborate with you. You can go from loading the editor at Sync.in to inviting collaborators in a matter of seconds. Each collaborator is assigned a color and all text they edit or add is highlighted in that color. To the right side of the document—which we've loaded in a very small browser window in the screenshot above just so we could crunch all the elements into a smaller picture for you!—is a chat window so collaborators can communicate while they're editing.

When you're done working you can export both the document itself—as HTML, plain text, or a bookmark file—and export the revision history too if you'd like the ability to go back and review and undo past revisions. Sync.in is a free service with a $2 a month premium service which adds in features like bulk export, public notes, and a custom sub-domain.
