Google Docs Adds Editing On Mobile Devices

Long have we waited for a version of Google Docs that would work on our smartphones, and today, Google will start rolling out a mobile editor for both the iPhone and Android.

Google Docs is fantastic as a cross-platform, cloud-based document editor (and as a collaboration tool, for that matter), but it was always a bummer that it only worked on desktop browsers. As of today, though, Google has released a mobile browser version of the Google Docs editor, so you can tweak your documents on the go. Just head over to and hit the "Edit" button when you're viewing a document. I don't have it on my device yet, but Google's rolling it out gradually, so we should all have it in the next few days.

The document editor works on Android devices running 2.2 Froyo and iOS devices running iOS 3.0 and above, including the iPad. Check out the video above for a demonstration.

    I think it would be nice to have an "app" that would go directly to your docs. Even if it is just a separate "web browser session". I guess it doesn't matter but the limit of like 3 or 4 web pages open in the browser can sometimes be annoying.
