If anyone believes in the power of the web, it’s Google. The Mountain View, California based internet giant has been one of the most vocal champions of web applications. So, it’s not surprising that some of the best web applications are from Google. Google Docs might be no match for Microsoft Office’s complexity, but it’s certainly good enough for many organizations. Unfortunately, Google Docs is restricted to the desktop. Mobile users can open documents in their browser, but can’t edit them. However, this is about to change.
Google has announced that it will begin rolling out edit support for English users of Docs over the next few days. Supported devices include Android phones (Froyo or newer), iPhone (iOS 3 or newer) and iPad. Android users will also be able to take advantage of the inbuilt voice recognition feature. Check out the video below to see Google Docs Mobile in action.
