Google Docs made the news yesterday because the option to upload folders is being rolled out gradually; which is great news if you want to upload more than one file at a time. Google Docs once again makes the news, this time because the Mountain View-based search engine giant announced the Docs App for its mobile operating system Android.

“Increasingly, people are using mobile phones to access information -- from email to web browsing to editing documents. Part of getting work done on the go is being able to easily access, edit and share content, which is why we’re happy to announce the new Google Docs app for Android,” said Google Software Engineer, Reuben Kan.

Here are the apps main features:
- View documents, PDFs, images and other files.
- Open documents directly from Gmail
- Search for content across any Google account. The app has been designed to help Android users rapidly find the docs they need.
- Easily upload documents from the Android-powered device to Google Docs and convert documents to the Google Docs format.
- Share documents with contacts on your Android-powered device.
- Edits to your documents appear to collaborators in seconds
- OCR (optical character recognition) technology allows you to take a picture of printed text and convert it to a Google document.
- Add a widget to the home screen and easily access these three tasks: jump to starred documents, take a photo you want to upload, create a new document.

If you would like to get the Google Docs for Android app, you can grab it from the Android Market here . The app is available in English, it is offered free of charge, and it works with Android 2.1 and up. You can also get the app by scanning the QR code presented below.
