Google brings add-ons to Drive Docs and Spreadsheets

Google has announced a change to Docs and Spreadsheets within Drive. Users can now utilize add-ons, which bring more native functionality to your workflow. There is also a marketplace specifically for the add-ons, which can be found from within a document or spreadsheet.

Currently, we have many apps that do a variety of things for Drive utilities. We may have an email app, but it requires a lot of workarounds to make it happen. There are label apps, but again — you’re in and out of programs. With add-ons, all that functionality comes to the document or spreadsheet, so you can get more done in a timely fashion.

It’s pretty simple, too. Add-ons are like Chrome extensions for your documents and spreadsheets. If you need mailing labels, Avery (a launch partner for the program) has an add-on for you, which acts like a mail-merge. Sending personalized emails is also really easy now with the MailChimp add-on. The add-on store is already pretty robust, too.

Right now there are quite a few of the same type of add-ons, with many focussing on merging data in one way or another. Some are meant to make Docs and Spreadsheets your one-stop shop for all kinds of things, like dropping a map into a document or format search. Others are Drive apps that can be found already, just slipped into the Document via add-on. That makes things like HelloSign or HelloFax much easier to use, as we won’t have to jump through the hoops of saving and sending any more.

HTC One vs One X, One X+: what’s changed?

HTC One vs One X, One X what's changed

Not everyone likes burying their head in a pile of spreadsheets, but that’s how we get our kicks. It hasn’t made us rich or successful like Paul DePodesta, but at least we get the satisfaction of bringing you HTC’s latest vital statistics. We’ve put the innards of HTC’s One side-by-side with last year’s flagships so you can see just what’s changed from year-to-year. Oh, and before you go apoplectic with rage — the company’s magical new imaging technology means that the One’s 4-megapixel sensor isn’t the slap in the face with a wet fish you’d assume it to be.

Latest Google Drive app update brings native spreadsheet editing, home screen shortcuts and more

Android Central

If you're the sort of person who likes to edit spreadsheets on the go, then you'll be pleased to learn that the latest version of the Google Drive app for Android allows you to do just that. A new update to the Drive app released today introduces a half-dozen fairly significant features that should make mobile document editing a little easier.

Previously limited to a slightly janky web-based interface, spreadsheets have gotten their own native UI, complete with the ability to zoom, directly edit formulae and resize and re-style cells. The same applies to tables in the Google Docs editor, which can now be similarly manipulated.

There are also a few minor changes, like the ability to maintain formatting when copying and pasting within Docs, and the ability to add home screen shortcuts to specific files or folders.

To grab the new version of Google Drive, you can use the Google Play shortcut at the top of the page. We've got the full changelog after the break.

Enhanced spreadsheet support comes to Google Drive for Android

As announced today in a post over at the official Android blog, Google Drive now features enhanced spreadsheet support. The new functionality allows users to create, edit, and format spreadsheets directly from their mobile device, much like the Google Docs app.

The app recreates the same experience you would find on a desktop PC, including the ability to see who is currently viewing and editing a particular document in real time.

Other than the ability to go bananas with your spreadsheets, Google Drive also has been updated to feature better text formatting across documents and the ability to edit text within a table. You can also use the app to create a direct home screen shortcut to any file saved in Drive.

You can grab Google Drive from the Google Play Store now.

[Thanks, Mike!]

Google Drive Update For Android Brings Improved Presentation Viewing, Basic Table Support In Docs, And More

drive tinyBefore I get your hopes up, no they haven’t improved spreadsheets yet. However, that is on the way. What is arriving now, though, is the ability to add comments to your documents, view tables, and improved Google presentations viewing support. You’ll even get speaker notes and the ability to swipe between slides.

There are more features on their way. Here at Android Police HQ, we’ve been eagerly awaiting proper spreadsheet editing (which is currently horrible to an unusable degree), and Google has seen fit to name check that very feature in its “More to come…” section. Hopefully it won’t be too much longer, and we’ll finally be able to see the results of that Quickoffice purchase.

Next! Project Management App Turns iPad into GTD Tool

Next! for iPadProductivity continues to be a word constantly associated with the iPad. And rightly so, its compact design, portability and robust computing power make it perfect for an everyday work or personal computer. Personally, I use it for everything, including word processor, photo library, video playback, social connection and of course my GTD mobile tablet. One productivity app I’ve enjoyed trying out is Next! by LefTurn Labs.

There are several features I immediately noticed that are very useful for being productive, which include action lists, project and goal status along with search. These three items alone make this app worthwhile. Of course, there are more goodies inside that take being productive to an entirely new level. One really great feature is the ability to attach files, such as images, spreadsheets, PDFs and just about any other type of file imaginable.

Motorola Introduces XOOM ‘Family Edition’, Coming Exclusively To Best Buy On October 16th For $379

Motorola_XOOM

Motorola is resurrecting the world’s first Honeycomb tablet one last time before the next generation of XOOM becomes available, but this time it has a family-friendly twist. It’s called the XOOM Family Edition, and it’s basically the same Wi-Fi XOOM that has been out for months now, but it’s packing around $40 of additional games and other software specifically targeted at kids. Among the bundled software is Zoodles, an app that locks the home button and only grants access to user-defined apps, so you can keep those kiddos away from apps that you deem unfit.

Google Docs Gets Updated To Support Honeycomb Tablets. FINALLY.

Google Docs

One of the first apps Google probably should have updated to support Honeycomb is Google Docs. Google Docs, Google’s service that allows a user to make documents, spreadsheets, and presentations and store them in the cloud, has been growing since it first started in beta, and I know many people who are starting to use it more and more because of its convenient cloud storage and collaboration features, not to mention it’s free.

Today Google has updated their Google Docs for Android app to support Honeycomb tablets. Before, the app supported Honeycomb tablets, but didn’t have a special-designed UI, and therefore was kind of annoying and clunky to use. So for all you tablet users out there that use Google Docs, your productivity from your tablet just increased dramatically. The new UI is a three panel design, similar to gmail, and does all the basic features one would expect out of Google Docs. The update also added landscape mode and autocomplete for easier sharing. Go grab it in the Market, and be sure to check back with TheDroidGuy for the latest apps and updates.

Mango quietly enables music streaming from SkyDrive, hides amongst your spreadsheets

SkyDrive msuic stream

Here’s a little feature that Microsoft quietly sneaked into Mango — you can stream music straight from your SkyDrive account. With the latest WP7 update comes some nice integration with Redmond’s cloud storage service, but it’s not just for pulling up spreadsheets. You can navigate to any folder and, if you tap on an compatible sound file, it’ll start playing the tune in the music app. It’s not a full fledged streaming and syncing service like Google Music or a tightly integrated ecosystem such as iTunes and iCloud, but it is a pretty neat trick. And, lets be honest, no matter how cumbersome, sometimes those unofficial solutions are much more gratifying. Check out the video of it in action after the break.

Google Docs for Mobile Now Lets You Share Documents, Adds New Sorting Features

This image has no alt text

Google Docs for mobile has been updated with a new look and added features to further bolster Google’s portable document solution. Documents can now be sorted by several criteria including name and date last modified. You can further narrow your list of documents to view only the items you need, a must-have for those of us with collections of word files and spreadsheets growing by the day. But of all the additions, the ability to share documents is most welcomed. Sharing is a core component of Google Docs, and here the options mirror the desktip equivalent.

You won’t have to do anything but direct your mobile browser to docs.google.com to experience the changes.

HP is bringing us useful update for its ePrint application that allows printing documents from their smart-phones at over 1,800 FedEx locations nationwide. The update brings support for FedEx Office Print&Go and this feature, actually, is the most important one. According to the app’s Market description, the service uses GPS to sync your documents with any participating self-service copier, which you can then use edit and print at will.

Google Docs gets an Android app, we go hands-on with tiny spreadsheets (video)

In fact, we’ve been clamoring for a proper Google Docs app for ages, even though sometimes we’re not entirely sure why.

Well, our masochistic prayers were answered — the Mighty Goog unleashed the new, native Google Docs for Android app and we rushed on over to the Market, clicked the install button, and gave it a whirl.
