Docs update

Google Docs for Android (see our hands-on) has received an update, bringing some welcomed new features for mobile users. The biggest update is the increased Web Clipboard functionality, which allows users to take photos from their mobile device and easily insert them into a Google Doc. Here is how it works:

On the Google Docs widget, select the Camera option. It will send you to your default camera application which will let you take a photo. Once it is taken, you'll see three options: Upload file without conversion, Convert file to Google Docs format and Send to Web Clipboard. By selecting Web Clipboard, you're sending your photo to a cloud-based clipboard used by Google Docs. Once it is uploaded, you can go to your Docs and select the Web Clipboard button, which is the fourth option from the left. You should see the photos that you've designated for the Clipboard, making it extremely simple to add photos quickly to Google Docs.

Other enhancements include the ability to open your Google Docs with any compatible viewer application and the option to send them to other apps or as an attachments on an email.

A final update is that the app is officially available in 45 more languages starting today.

To get the update or the app if you haven't check it out yet, check out the links after the break.

Does spreadsheet editing still use the web version? It's horrible... I uninstalled because of this.

This is really a neat update. I really have enjoyed the ability to use Docs as a quick and dirty scanner/ocr, and now the web clipboard addition is really great!
