Google Docs App Update: Now Supports Tablets
When I first started using my phone and tablets I was miffed by the lack of an app for Google Docs. I could only view documents and spreadsheets but had no editing support. A while back document editing became doable when Google added support to mobile editing via web browser. A few months ago Google finally came out with an app for Android coined Google Docs. Google Docs allowed you to create, edit and save documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Support for tablets running Honeycomb was lacking. The update that came out today changes that.
Today’s update brings with it a complete redesign that caters to those using Honeycomb. Similar other Google apps on Honeycomb, Google Docs has a multi-pane view. . The left most pane shows you your collections as well as owned and starred items. The middle pane shows a list of all your docs and the right most pane gives a preview of the selected document as well who can edit said document. Opening and editing documents is as simple as tapping.
When it comes to tablets Google is slowly rolling out app support. With Today’s update, document editing in the cloud via tablets is becoming more prominent and syncing documents among all devices became a reality. Hit the link below to pick it up.
