Google Docs Gets its Own Android App
Another nice feature of the app is the fact that it allows you to share Google Docs items with contacts on your Android phone, right inside the app. No need to exit and open the Google mobile web service. Google Docs Android app also lets you upload documents from your Android phone and open it directly from Gmail. The app also lets you add widget to your home screen to make it easier for you to jump to your starred Google docs files, take a photo to upload or create new documents.
Now, here’s the coolest thing about Google Docs Android app – it lets you turn photos with text that you’ve captured using your phone’s camera into editable Google documents. This was made possible through optical character recognition (OCR). You can take new photos or convert those you have taken previously by sharing them with Google Docs Android app.
