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.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). 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 . Just registered with this one found their video looks neat..Eagerly waiting for this one.
