Google apparently read our piece on there needing to be better Android tablet apps, including one of their own, Google Docs. Today, if you jump into the market and check for updates, you should find one for one of the most popular cloud-based document services in all the land. And if you have a tablet, your experience will be much more “high-res” and not stretched, to put it nicely. For all devices though, you will enjoy the ability to access files while offline. If you happen to edit those offline files, they will be automatically updated once you connect to WiFi. Thanks, Google. (more…)
Both Google Reader and Google Docs have updates available in the market as of the last hour. Each received an Ice Cream Sandwich makeover of sorts that includes swiping between stories or document categories, the same sharing options as you will see on new web versions, and prettier widgets. To be honest, the Reader update doesn’t look all that different, but the new Docs version most definitely resembles the look of G+ which was also recently updated.
Google Docs just received a lovely update, now bringing a much needed Honeycomb face-lift to all tablet users. The entirely redesigned interface is incredibly beautiful and is sure to brighten the day of any avid Docs user. Head on over to the market and update that puppy.
Something everyone has been waiting for?

Your favorite cloud-based document suite Android app received a shiny little update today that makes uploading pics from your phone to the Google Docs web clipboard much easier. You can’t access those photos from the app itself, but you can load up a document through a browser and attach much easier (see photo below). And then the Google team also added support for 46 new languages.
We love writing about apps that involve…work. (more…)
Yes! Google Docs for Android has finally arrived and it’s looking feature packed. You can now access your G-Docs from anywhere and from any account, share items with contacts, upload docs from phone, open through Gmail, and even perform a variety of functions through a new widget.
The coolest feature though, is clearly Google Docs’ ability to take a photo of an image with text and turn it into an editable document. You can also turn photos with text that are already on your phone into editable documents that will appear in your list of files almost immediately.
Works on all Android 2.1+ phones. And yeah, it’s free. (more…)
