Hidden away at the bottom of a blog post, Google today announced that their cloud based office technology, Google Docs, would be enhanced to allow mobile editing from Android devices and the Apple iPad.
We’re launching new cloud-powered capabilities: two-step verification to help enhance security and soon, mobile editing in Google Docs on Android and the iPad™. ..today we demonstrated new mobile editing capabilities for Google Docs on the Android platform and the iPad. In the next few weeks, co-workers around the world will soon be able to co-edit files simultaneously from an even wider array of devices. Only cloud computing is able to deliver the whole package of productivity-enhancing collaboration, superior reliability and virtually unlimited scale at a price that’s affordable for any size organization. Our Atmosphere event is a nice opportunity to step back and fully appreciate the power of the cloud with customers and future customers alike.
If you use Google Docs, either in the office, or as a team management tool for small projects or a home business you’ll be psyched about this.
Is Google Docs coming to an iPad near you a big deal, or just a meh moment? Have your say in the comments…
