"A simple little App that fills a big gap in Google Docs for people who write code examples"

What do you like best?

I often like to include Code examples in my Google Docs. However, in Google Docs, it's very hard to present code in a way that is readable. This is where Code Blocks come to the rescue. After installing it, you can easily format your code. Best of all, you can format your code according to language. For example, you can select CSS or PHP and it will format the code in the style of these langauges.

What do you dislike?

No real complaints. It has an option called "theme" where you can select a colour style for your code. This is really handy, but it has too many options and be a little cumbersome to browse at first. This is only a very minor quibble as you get used to it very quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It works and is quick and easy to use. Plus it's free. What more could you want?!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I often make guides in Google Docs that contain code. Code blocks saves time as with a few clicks I can make my code all neatly formatted which makes it far more readable. It's also quicker than using Google Doc's built in options.

"G Suite Code Blocks"

What do you like best?

I really like that there are different color themes and the fact that Code Blocks supports so many different languages. Code Blocks is also super easy to install as it is just an add on and installation takes a few seconds and using it in a google doc is even faster. I also like that if you add more code and it goes onto the next page, Code Blocks will recognize this and extend the code segment automatically.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how google docs thinks that there are spelling errors in the code. The spell check should automatically be disabled when a segment of code is added.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Code Blocks when collaborating with other people or when typing up a report that needs to have both code and text. Using Code Blocks makes it very readable and it is very convenient.
