Google has boosted Docs for Android with native editing and real-time collaboration functionality. The company also improved presentations in Google Apps. Google Docs for Android received some much longed after features Feb. 22, including native editing and real-time collaboration capabilities. Prior to this upgrade, available now in the Android Market for Android 2.1 devices and up, the native Docs for Android app was a read-only program. Users who wanted to edit their document had to do so in their Android handset or tablet’s browser. Naturally, the lack of editing capability in the native app, which is faster than the Web app, was a glaring hole. As for real-time collaboration, Google leveraged the edit-as-you-type functionality that existed in the now defunct Google Wave platform.
