Google Docs for Android gains offline access and tablet improvements

Google yesterday announced some improvements to the Google Docs app for Android. According to the giant, the app now brings a new feature that makes it possible to make any file in the service available even when there is no connection.

“Google Docs keeps your offline files up to date. When you are online, files will be updated automatically. You can also manually update the files when you have a data connection, either by opening the file or tapping ‘Update’ in the offline section of the app, ”explained the Android team on Google+.

On tablets, Google reported that the Google Docs experiment has been redesigned to make better use of the big screen and offers new ways to interact with documents.

“Now, when you open a Google document on your tablet while you’re online, you’ll have a high resolution version of the document. Slide your fingers left and right to turn between pages, or use the slider at the bottom to advance the page forward ”.

Google Docs for Android is available for free on the Android Market and requires Android 2.1 or higher.
