Google Releases Google Docs App for Android

Google recently released its official app for Google Docs on Android. With this app users can  filter and search documents  on your Google account.  Users can also  easily share items with contacts on their phone, right from within the app.



Besides that, this app also allows users to create documents with a single tap and users can  upload content from your phone and open documents directly from Gmail. For easy access users can  add a widget to your home screen for easy access to three core tasks: jumping to your starred documents, taking a photo to upload, or creating a new document with one tap.



One of the mind blowing feature Google has included in this app is  optical character recognition (OCR). With this you can click a photo of a document from your phone camera and convert them to text documents. Although at this point it cannot register user handwritten documents but Google promises to work on it soon.


You can download Google Docs for Android  from Android Market for free provided your device runs on Android 2.1+.
