Google Docs Finally gets an Android app

Google's had a mobile-friendly version of Google Docs available for some time now, but it's now finally gone the extra step and released a dedicated Android app. That will of course let you access and edit your documents on your smartphone, but the real standout feature is the ability to capture text with your phone's camera and have it instantly made editable thanks to some optical character recognition. Google notes that won't work with handwriting or some fonts, but it promises it will get better over time. Hit up Android Market to try it out for yourself.

  1. Eh, there are plenty of other RSS reader apps out there, it's just a bit embarrassing on Google's part since they took oh so long to release one of their major apps on their own platform.
