Google Docs editing added to Android, iPhone and iPad

Google Docs editing added to Android, iPhone and iPad

It’s been a long time coming, but Google has finally announced that it is adding the ability to edit Google Docs files on Android and iOS mobile devices.

Editing has arrived

Until now, it’s been a right royal pain in the googlies trying to edit Google Docs files on the move, but the update lets users click an edit button to switch to the the new mobile documents editor.

If you’re working with other people on the document, changes you make on your Android phone, iPhone or iPad should appear almost instantly for your work chums, and you’ll be able to see their updates in real time (ish) too.

Here’s how Google big up the new edit feature:

  • You can work on that important memo…while on the bus or train to work.
  • If you’re behind on a group proposal, but really want to make it to the ball game tonight, your whole team can work on it from the bleacher seats.
  • You can take minute-by-minute notes at a concert so you’ll always remember the setlist. And your friends can jealously follow in real-time at home.

The service will be available to Android 2.2 and iOS 3 (and above) users and will be rolled out in the next few days.

  1. If someone next to me was taking minute-by-minute notes at a gig with their LCD screen constantly drawing my eye, their fancy smartphone might find itself on the end of some spilt beer justice.

  2. Haven’t you heard? It’s been compulsory to wave your smartphone at gigs since 2007. In fact, you’re not allowed to look directly at the artists and you can only witness the performance via the shaky 3″ screen in your hand. 😀

    Android 2.2 again…another reason that my next phone might not be an Android. My six month old 2.1 device is missing out on quite a bit already.
