No doubt Google has gotten to the point of receiving death threats in app requests from users of Android devices over getting a Google Docs app, and now they have answered. Google Docs is now a standalone app which will run on devices using Android 2.1 and up, and it’s free for download in the Android Market. The best part of this is the ability to take a picture of text, allowing Gdocs to take that text and place it into a doc for you. That’s pretty cool.

The app has a few nice features, and honestly, it looks ok, but don’t expect this to be a complete replacement of your other doc apps like ‘quickdocs’. This app is still a little shy on features, and looks alot like simply a customized app UI re-directing you to your Google Docs account online. Let’s hope that they keep adding features in the future.
