Google finally releases native Android Google Docs client
Apr 27, 2011 2:41 PM –
Google released the first native Google Docs client for Android today. According to the company, features include the ability to edit documents and spreadsheets, view PDFs and images, upload content, take a photo of printed text and convert it to a Google document, and sharing documents with the contacts on your phone.
From early comments, there are still some features missing, such as the ability to open Gmail attachments or load docs from multiple accounts, and the ability to delete documents is missing, but after a quick download, it seems like a very solid start. Documents load quickly, with their formatting, and are editable in the app (I have heard reports that it takes you to the Web client for this, but I did not have the app ask to go to my browser – in my tests, I stayed within the app for everything I asked it to do.) You can download the app using convenient tools below:
Create, edit, upload and share your docs from your phone with the Google Docs app: * Designed for Android to save you time finding your docs * Edits to your documents appear to collaborators in seconds * Make quick changes to spreadsheets * View your documents, PDFs, images and more. * Upload and convert files to the Google Docs format * Take a photo of printed text and convert it to a Google document * Share docs with your phone’s contacts
