Google has finally added editing support for its web-based document storage service for the Android and iOS operating systems.
Google Docs, which allows users to create, edit and store word documents and spreadsheets entirely on a web browser, has been made compatible on Apple’s iPhone and iPad, so long as they are running iOS version 3.0 or higher, and on Google’s Android operated devices, running no less than version 2.2, AKA Froyo.
To get started, users need to simply point their browser to http://docs.google.com and tap on the new icon to create a new document or spreadsheet. Alternatively, they can edit an existing document by opening it and tapping the edit button.
While there is no shortage of options for document editing software for either Android or iOS, the browser-based approach of Google Docs has the unique advantage of being accessible on multiple platforms with a single account, meaning it’s more convenient and cheaper, too.
