From Android Central:

It's taken half of forever, but we finally can edit Google Docs -- word files, that is -- in our Android browsers. (Spreadsheets have been editable for a while now.) Google just flipped the switch as says it should be active for those of us on Froyo over the coming days.

But the question is, how usable is it? I have the free version of Documents to Go built into my Blackberry OS, but wouldn't attempt to do more than very basic stuff.

I have the paid version of docs2 go, and I have my resumes in there. It's nice to make changes from my phone and then email it to job openings that I find without having to wait to get home. Works great with docx files. Now I can store the docs to the "cloud" and make changes from any computer.

I bought into cloud computing a few months ago, and now use browser-based Google docs (and Gmail), instead of Office (and Outlook). It's great to have secure edit access to the docs I'm working on, no matter which PC I'm in front of.

The new Android version of Docs also supports speech input for text entry. This is a nice alternative to the soft keyboard for phone/tablet users, IMO.

Ummm, no. My Docs are private. I don't need them 'out there' for Google or anyone else to index and send info to advertisers.


And don't think for a second they won't, no matter what their terms state.
