[Video] AndroidPIT Reviews the Google Docs App

Google Docs is one of the hottest apps on the market right now - and for good reason. It can convert photos into text, allow you to share your edits wirelessly with your computer and can even display presentations and spreadsheets.

It's amazing to have access to every Google Doc you've ever created in the palm of your hand. Think of the possibilities: downloading flight documents before the trip to the airport; tweaking the presentation before you get to class; collaborating with peers on a project while you're still on the bus to work. 

The downside to the app is that it is sometimes slow to load docs, and doesn't always do such a good job of fitting text to the screen. We also encountered some problems in the picture-to-text function, in which some words came out garbled and nonsensical. This could be because we didn't take the picture under optimal lighting conditions but, then again, when in life are lighting conditions completely optimal? 

Take a look at the video below for a full walkthrough:

  • True, true. I kept on thinking it was a problem with the Galaxy, but according to the reviews on Android Market, a lot of people are having the same problems. Hopefully, they'll be able to fix some things in an update.

  • Just not QUITE perfect^^

    From all I've seen so far, I actually think that this is a pretty lousy app.
    As one can see on your video, it is rather slow, the document from photo functionality is hardly useful and over all, it does not offer more functionality than the website does!
    Also, it keeps crashing on my phone.
    I think Google has made many better apps than this one.
