The app doesn't come with and WYSIWYG text editor which may enable a user to do any 'real' work on Google Docs using the tablet. All you get is a simple text editor where you can type content.
Making it worse the tablet browsers don't support the web version of the Google Docs, thus making it impossible to create 'rich' documents using your Android tablet.
What's in the update?
Google yesterday updated its Google Docs app for Android tablet, but the update doesn't address the main problem. The update is about the design and layout of the app for tablet; it has virtually nothing to address the frustration Android users face with Google Docs.
According to a Google blog, "Today's update to the app makes Google Docs work better than ever on your tablet. With an entirely new design, we’ve customized the look to make the most of the larger screen space on tablets. The layout includes a three-panel view, which allows you to navigate through filters and collections, view your document list, and see document details, all at once. Looking at the details panel on the right side, you can see a thumbnail to preview a document and its details before opening it. From the panel, you can see who can view or edit any doc."
Are you a Google Docs user, how has been your experience on the Andoid tablets?
