Now edit Google Docs on your iOS, Android device

17 Nov

Google has rolled-out a new feature to its Google Docs suite that would enable users to edit their documents and spreadsheets from their Android (running Android 2.2 Froyo and above) and iOS devices (iPhone, iPod touch and iPad). This has been one feature we have been waiting for since long and finally it is going live as we type. Check out this video below to see how it works.

Google releases Docs Viewer for Android and iOS devices

29 Jun

Google has released a new feature for Android phones as well as the iPhone and iPad that will enable users to view documents stored on their Google Docs account without having to first download the files to their phones.

The Viewer will support pich-to-zoom on the iPhone and iPad. Users can also switch between pages quickly. With Docs Viewer, users will be able to view files in PDFs, .ppt, .doc and .docx formats.

I have been viewing MS Excel files on my iPhone via its Safari browser without downloading it for some weeks now without even realising that it is a new feature. Yes, it comes in quite handy, expecially if you have a file that has been shared with multiple people and gets edited frequently. You can try it out today by pointing your supported phone’s browser to docs.google.com.
