In a blog post today, Google very quickly announced something that Android users have been waiting for for a very long time: Google Docs editing. Believe it or not, there is no official Google Docs app for Android, and the mobile website leaves a lot to be desired.
Given that Docs has been around since before Android hit the scene, it's pretty surprising that no official Docs app has been released yet. The announcement today was part of a list of features announced for Google business users and among them was this unassuming sentence: "and soon, mobile editing in Google Docs on Android and the iPad."
What that means is unknown. Maybe it will be a native app, or maybe it will simply be a more feature-filled mobile website. Time will tell, as always. But either way, the news is exciting for those of us that use Docs as our primary word processor. [source: Google Blog]
