If you're a savvy geek--which, as a reader of this site, you totally are--you can turn to the powerful real-time text input and collaboration technology built in to Google Docs. With the recent announcement that Google's cloud-based productivity suite now boasts the ability to edit and collaborate on documents from Android and iOS devices, there's no excuse for not doing so!
While there are plenty of good iOS apps that can already get the job done, Google is now flipping the switch on being able to edit Google Docs documents on the go from mobile devices including the iPad.
This morning, Google announced several updates to its widely used mobile services, including Google Apps Premier, mobile editing capabilities for Google Docs on the iPad and Android platform, and Retina Display support for Google Earth.
Although Apple is pushing EPUB as the de facto standard for their new iBooks app, there will be plenty of times when you need to open and read a PDF file that’s not attached to an e-mail. ReaddleDocs is one of the classic iPhone apps which does that -- and a whole lot more -- and it’s now available for the iPad.
Everyone loves a new version of a useful utility app, especially when it brings with it great new features. Readdle is a company that doesn’t disappoint when it comes to ladling on the functionality and improving their apps with every new release, and this week’s Scanner Pro 2.0 is no exception.
Everyone loves a software update, especially when it bulks up with new features that users are clamoring for. Such is the case with the popular ReaddleDocs for the iPhone and iPod touch, which just got a refresh to 2.1 -- and a host of new features to boot.
It's not a big announcement, just more of how Google is reaching into every corner of your online activity. Yesterday morning saw the rollout of goo.gl, the link shortener from everybody's favorite search engine.
Of course, Google's more than just a search engine anymore. While that feature still makes up the company's bread and butter, they've expanded well beyond that with email, mobile apps, an Office-like suite of online document software, their book scanning project, the essential Google Maps, RSS reader, Calendar, browsers, operating systems, and on and on and on.
Don’t put all of your eggs in the cloud’s ample basket — or in this case, Google Docs — right now. At least that’s the opinion of Dave Girouard, president of Google’s enterprise division, who recently warned that their cloud-based Google Docs is not ready to fully dethrone Microsoft Office.
