Google Docs for Android 1.0.10

There you are, sat in a meeting when you realise you’ve forgotten an important document. How would you cope in such circumstances? And what if you needed to edit a document or two while you’re on the road?

Google Docs is one of a growing number of web-based office apps that allows you to open and edit documents in a web browser. What this app does is allow you to access any document stored in your Google Docs account on your Android-based phone or tablet.

It’s all very straightforward to use: the app will seamlessly integrate with your existing Google account, so if it’s already set up all you have to do is fire it up and wait a few moments for your documents list to appear. Select one and you can share, delete, rename, view and – if it’s a text or spreadsheet document – edit it directly from your device. It’s also possible to create new documents too.

Sadly, the app offers only the basic editing tools required to tweak documents – like the mobile version of the Google Docs site itself, there are no editing options or menus to click in order to gain access to even the most rudimentary tools; instead all you can do is edit the actual content itself. While it’s understandable to some degree – most people won’t want to do anything other than change a few words or spreadsheet cells - it’s still disappointing that so much functionality has been lost, particularly if you’re lucky enough to own a tablet and mini keyboard.
