AndroidAppADay: gDocs

Android, Mobile

It’s always seemed very odd to me that, for all the excellent integration that Android has with Google services that there is a glaring omission of Google Docs support somewhere in there. Sure, you can visit the Google Docs site just fine and access some documents and do some light editing but a built-in app would probably be preferable. gDocs doesn’t fix everything but it at least attempts to duplicate functions that you would expect to be there.

All you need to do is enter your Google account information and you’re pretty much good to go. The app will then display your available documents that you can then download and edit or view them from within the app. Once in a while, the app will open the browser and go to the Google Docs mobile site but I think that is more of a service issue that the app would not be able to fix.

gDocs has helped me a few times when I’ve needed to get quick access to a document on the go and I would definitely recommend it to any Google Docs user with an Android phone. At least until Google provides an official solution that works better.

gDocs is currently available on the Android Market.
