Google Docs for Android updated with offline access and improved tablet support

Google updated its Google Docs app for Android to allow users to access their files even when there’s no Internet connection around. Then, once you download some of the files and change them while offline, simply tap Update and everyone else who can access your documents (or just you) we’ll see the difference. Moreover, the application will automatically update your offline files when you’re on Wi-Fi.

The second big important change is improved support for Android tablets, with Google Docs finally offering a decent (high-resolution) reading experience. You can swipe left and right to flip between pages, or use the slider at the bottom to page ahead quickly.

Unfortunately, native document editing (not HTML) is still missing and without it, well, Google Docs is still pretty useless for most of us. Not sure why it takes so long to include this feature (since it’s by far the most demanded by the users), but what do I know…
