Back in September, Touch Reviews reported on Google’s announcement of bringing Google Docs editing to Apple’s iOS devices – the iPhone and the iPad. Well, the search giant has just announced a new documents editor that now supports editing on your mobile browser.
Google are rolling this service out over the next few days, initially for English-language users with Android Froyo 2.2, and iOS 3.0+ devices, including the iPad.
To get started, simply navigate to docs.google.com in your mobile browser, and then select the document you wish to edit. Your document will then be displayed on your device, and you can tap the ‘Edit’ button in the top, right-hand corner to start working on it. Alternatively, you can create a new document from the homepage.
Edits you make to your documents appear in near realtime for other people viewing the same document, and if someone else makes a change within their browser, the document will update on your mobile device as well.
Check out the video below to see mobile editing in action:
