Open Files Off-Line With The New Google Docs

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android Software" @ 11:00 AM

"Google has released a pretty useful update for their Android version of Google Docs, providing offline access for your files and a better overall experience for tablet users by providing high-resolution versions of your documents."

This was a much needed update! To not have access to files when you have no network is just dumb. Large collections of media or things you don't need often, maybe that can stay in the cloud, but small text files, documentation, or notes, I want available all the time. It sounds like the synchronization is done well also. I played with it a bit and it's easy enough to save a file locally as shown in the screen shot above. Improving the app for tablet owners was a very smart idea as well. Really, I think that should have been done when the first Xoom was released but better late than never.

"Earlier this year, we introduced the Google Docs app for Android. Since then, many users have downloaded the app and enjoyed the benefits of being able to access, edit and share docs on the go."

Google's at it again, this time with a major update for the Tablet version of Google Docs!

Google Docs FINALLY Gets An Android App

"And my favorite feature: Using the app and your phone's camera, you can turn photos with text into editable Google documents with the power of optical character recognition (OCR). Just create a new ‘Document from Photo' or select the camera icon from the widget, and your converted document will appear in your documents list shortly after you snap the picture."

As far as I'm concerned, Docs and Gmail are Google's two killer web apps, so it's always surprised me that they didn't have a native Docs app for Android. That changes today! Google has just released an app with a ton of features that satisfy the most avid Docs users. One of the most exciting features is the one described in the quote above from the Google Mobile blog. Imagine taking a picture of a document with your phone and then being able to edit it within Docs.

What are you waiting for? Get thee to the Android Market and download. Then let us know in the forum what you think.

Mobile Google Docs Gets An Update: Let The Real-Time Editing Begin!

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android News" @ 08:00 PM

"With Google Docs, we're always trying to make you more productive-and part of that means making it possible for you to get things done from anywhere, at anytime. That's why we're excited that the new documents editor now supports editing on your mobile browser."

All I've gotta say is that it's about time. Google has finally enabled editing of your Doc files right there in your mobile browser, provided you have Android 2.2 or newer. This feature should roll out to Google Docs users over "the next few days". Though spread sheets have been editable for quite some time now it has been impossible to edit even the simplest of text documents from your mobile device. I've tried many a program over the past few months just to edit the shopping list doc that my wife and I share. I'd find one that would work for a while then break or one that worked most of the time but would occasionally delete the entire file. Not an ideal solution. So thank you Google for finally giving me the ability to edit a simple text file from my phone! Is this new feature working for any of you guys yet?
