Google have released an update to Android (and iOS) that now enabled you to edit your Google Documents online, in real time along with colleagues and friends who are using desktop or non-mobile devices. Edits that someone else makes on the browser will also appear directly on your Android device. One of the particularly neat features that I like about this update is the tabular editing features provided on Android. You can pan a table from right to left while at the same time keeping the rest of your editing window stationary so you can read other text on the document too. Oh, and one other thing,

“If you are using Android comma you can enter text using your voice period”

This is a pretty neat update form Google and certainly one that will have Microsoft thinking. “In the next few days, we’re rolling this out to English-language users around the world on Android with Froyo (version 2.2) and on iOS devices (version 3.0+) including the iPad”
