Documents to Go 3.0 in Android Market NOW, adds GDocs support and much more

October 21, 2010 | by Andrew Kameka



AndroidCentral discovered earlier this morning that Documents to Go would be released for Android soon. Well, soon turned into a few hours because I just went to uninstall some apps and noticed that Docs to Go 3.0 is available now via update.

We got an early preview of Docs to Go back in May at Google I/O, and it’s great to finally have the app on-hand. While the rep we spoke with was unclear over whether or not current Docs to Go Premium owners would get the update for free, we can now confirm that people who previously purchased a license can apply the update now. New customers can get it on sale for $14.99 rather than the standard price of $29.99.

Documents To Go is my app of choice for creating or editing Microsoft Office documents. It supports Word, Excel, and PowerPoint reading or editing, and reading PDF files. There’s also support for Google Docs and sync with Desktop Files. Here’s a list of new features from DocumentsToGo.
