For some reasons, Google Docs for Android wasn't too much in Google's focus so far and it was somewhat loveless designed and featured. The Google Docs web app counterpart nevertheless allowed to create, edit, upload and share your documents with the web app. Now, Google has released an update which comes with some handy features like making any file available offline for view and access while not connected as well as managing offline content, including seeing what's out of date. Automatic syncing of offline content keeps docs up-to-date while on WiFi and staring and renaming files is now possible offline as well. Last but not least, Google mentions and improved reading experience of Google documents while on a tablet.
Nevertheless, Google hast still not fixed its Ice Cream Sandwich GUI glitch I mentioned earlier this week. On Android 4.0, as well as Android 3.0 devices, Google Docs is still sporting two menu buttons, the older one in the lower right corner and the newer one in the upper right corner which Google asked it independent developers to get rid-off with Android 4.0 app-updates. Maybe it's time for Google to set a good example?
Anyway, if you are using Google Docs, the update is worthwhile and now available free of charge from the Android Market.
