Google Docs for Android Updates; Now Sports Real Time Collaboration and Editing

Although you’ve been able to open Google Docs with an Android app for ages, it wasn’t the full experience of seeing collaborative and on-the-fly edits–until now.

The new update rolls out mobile collaboration with real-time updates, rich text editing, and an overall enhanced user interface that includes pinch and zoom focusing and easy easy cut and paste. Watch the video above to see the new features in action.

Google Docs for Android

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Great job by Google and Android again. Would be very helpful to many of us. Meanwhile, I’ve come across some new tools which looks very interesting and handy, for collaboration.
    One such tool is CollateBox http://www.collatebox.com/ . Just registered with this one found their video looks neat..Eagerly waiting for this one.
