Editing for Google Docs arrives on Android
Editing documents in Google Docs has been a sorely missed feature for smartphone users for a while now, but the wait is finally over with Google's launch of the feature for the Android platform. Editing your online documentation will only be possible if your handset is running Android 2.2 Froyo. Things look buttery smooth on the demo video by Google below and we are hopeful to see a near-desktop experience. In addition, editions to the documents appear at a near real-time speed.
Now, we can almost hear hubbub from users with Android 2.1 Eclair waiting for an update, but it is what it is. The service is also expected to run on iPads and a wide range of mobile platforms in the near future.
We should also note that Google did OK with its timing. Back in late September we brought you the news that Google will support editing for Google Docs “in the next few weeks” and now, after almost eight weeks, it is out. Are you going to use it on your mobile device?
