Google Adds Editing Capabilities To Google Docs For iPhone, iPad And iPod Touch
Back in September, Google had announced that it will be adding editing capabilities for Google Doc for iPad users.
The mobile version of Google Docs allowed users to view documents in read-only mode until now. So by offering Google Docs on the iDevice, Google will be able to compete with Appleâ€™s popular iWorks suite of apps for the iPad and other third party apps such as Documents to Go and Quickoffice that have been offering this capability for quite sometime now. But since Google Docs will be free, it could still emerge as the winner even though it has taken so much time to introduce the feature.
This is what Andrew Grieve, a software Engineer at Google have to say about the new editing capabilities on the Google Mobile blog:
- You can work on that important memo…while on the bus or train to work.
- If youâ€™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 youâ€™ll always remember the setlist. And your friends can jealously follow in real-time at home.
- …and the list goes on!
You can checkout a brief demo of the editing feature:
If youâ€™re a Google Docs users, you can check it out by pointing your iDeviceâ€™s Safari browser (iOS 3.0 or later) to docs.google.com and selecting the document that you want to edit.
Will you start using Google Docs or will you still prefer to use Appleâ€™s iWork suite of apps or one of the other third party iOS apps? Let us know in the comments.
