I should preface this by saying that GDocs is still in beta. The version I tested was 0.3.2. So maybe this is more a of a preview than a review. Whatever the case, GDocs is beginning to address the business person's number one complaint with Android - compatibility with their work environment. Considering how many companies are utilizing cloud solutions - like Google Docs - I think this app indicates a bit of progress in a significant arena. If nothing else, it's a step in the right direction.

GDocs currently allows editing of text documents and viewing of spreadsheets. As seen in the images below, you can view a document remotely, or download it for editing. Once edited, the document is automatically synchronized with the one on the server. That is, of course, as long as you have write access. If not, you can save a modified version on your device, or upload the changed version as a new document.

The application has performed flawlessly for me, but the functions are pretty limited. Keep in mind that people are working on other Android workplace solutions. The software will come. The software will come.
