I've recently switched my to-do list to a Google Doc, and the Docs app keeps getting better. The newest version incorporates Web Clipboard, and other improvements. A great app to interface with a great service!

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.

Google Docs Now Supporting Excel, Powerpoint And More

Posted by Nurhisham Hussein in "Windows Phone News" @ 09:00 PM

"The Google Docs Viewer is used by millions of people every day to quickly view PDFs, Microsoft Word documents and PowerPoint presentations online. Not only is viewing files in your browser far more secure than downloading and opening them locally, but it also saves time and doesn't clutter up your hard-drive with unwanted files...Today we're excited to launch support for 12 new file types."

I've never had occasion to use Google Docs - now I'm curious enough to try it out, especially with the new support for PSD and AI files. Including in today's update to Docs is compatibility with:

  • Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 (.PPTX)
  • Apple Pages (.PAGES)
  • Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
  • Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
  • Autodesk AutoCad (.DXF)
  • Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)
  • PostScript (.EPS, .PS)
  • TrueType (.TTF)
  • XML Paper Specification (.XPS)

That's a pretty strong line-up to add to the file formats already supported.

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?
