With Google Docs, we’re always trying to make you more productive—and part of that means making it possible for you to get things done from anywhere, at anytime. That’s why we’re excited that the new documents editor now supports editing on your mobile browser. We’re rolling this out over the next few days. That means that...Here is a video:
- 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.
- ...and the list goes on!
Previously, editing Google Docs was only possible through third-party apps such as Documents to Go and Quickoffice. However, those apps are quite pricey. Being able to edit documents natively within Google Docs will eliminate the need to buy separate apps. Best of all, since the editing capability will be built into Google Docs itself, it is free for the user. Launched in 2005, Google Docs is a free, Web-based word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, form, and data storage service offered by Google. It allows users to create and edit documents online while collaborating in real time with other users. Because it’s free, Google Docs has been very successful in eliminating the use of Microsoft’s Office Suite for individuals and groups alike. By including editing on the iPad, Google Docs could grow even more in popularity.
