New Google Docs comes to Android Honeycomb

Some time back, Google introduced the Google Docs app for Android. Users simply needed to download the app on to their phone to access, edit and share docs on the go. Now, as an update to the original Google Docs app, Google has brought documents on the go support to Honeycomb with a new layout, as reported by the official Google mobile blog.

The app will now have the whole screen divided into three panels that will facilitate browsing. The earlier app look didn’t really optimize the whole experience on Honeycomb and this new layout will definitely be welcomed. The new layout includes a three-panel view, which allows you to navigate through filters and collections, view your document list, and see document details as well. Also, users can see the thumbnail of the document to preview it and view its detail before opening it. From the main panel, users can see who is viewing or editing documents currently. It will also have auto complete as part of the features.

All these features are available in 46 languages on tablet devices with Android 3.0+ (Honeycomb) and above. Those wanting Google Docs can simply download the app from the Android Market.
