Realtors rejoice – Google Docs app is finally on Android

What the new app does

Two things most of us on the AGBeat team have in common is an affinity for Google products, and ownership of Androids. Because of that, we are excited about the long awaited Google Docs app on Android.

Now, Android users can search for content more readily, edit from the phone (whereas the web based wasn’t exactly touch screen friendly), and quickly share docs with contacts on your phone.

We like the app widget that takes you to “three core tasks” according to Google: taking a photo to upload, jump to your starred docs or create a new document with one tap. They’ve done a great job of minimizing the number of clicks it takes to get things done via Google Docs.

The ability to take pictures of any text with Google and translate it to text has been around, but now with your phone’s camera, you can turn a photo into a document that is editable and sharable. We like the ability not just to translate but for real estate, taking pictures and adding trackable notes.

For the increasing use of smartphones in the real estate field in lieu of carrying a laptop around, this is a great tool to be armed with- edit and share documents on the go without the ridiculously tedious enlarge/tap/delete/type/delete/enlarge process of the past.
