Create or edit files through a standalone app.

Google has finally released a standalone app for its popular online productivity suite Google Docs to combat the frustration of using it from a mobile web browser.

The app allows users to open file attachments from Gmail, share and filter documents, upload new documents, upload photo or create new files.

Also, barring handwriting and “some fonts”, the app uses optical character recognition technology which converts snaps of text into editable documents.

The app is available for free in the Android Market. You can also use the following QR code to download it directly.
