documents-to-go-standard-edition-new-v2-icon

Let's face it: productivity suites like Microsoft Office or the cloud-based Google Docs aren't exactly exciting, but they are among the most vital applications for the businessmen in us. Whether this remains true when 2.8-4.3-inch displays are concerned is debatable, but if you ask DataViz, the company that developed the free Documents To Go app, the answer is a resounding "yes."

The company has just released a brand new version 3.0 of its uber-popular app, which includes numerous improvements, namely:

  • a "totally redesigned" UI (not so sure that's for the better, though; all I'm seeing right now is a bunch of ugly blue menus)
  • an enhanced file browser
  • Google Docs support (the one thing that had always been missing for me)
  • an improved PDF viewer that now includes various zooming options (pinch-to-zoom and double-tap-to-zoom), keypad shortcuts, hyperlinks, the ability to rotate a page, render multiple pages, and more
  • an "optimized" version of Slideshow To Go
  • support for password-protected Office 2003 & 2007 docs as well as support for Microsoft Office 2010 files

The free version of the app doesn't allow you to edit or create files but can be used for reading them. It is also missing Google Docs, PDF support, and a few other things, but you can unlock these premium features by purchasing an optional $14.99 upgrade.

You can download the app for free by clicking the barcode below (if you're on your phone) or scanning it with an app like Barcode Scanner or Google Goggles:

Update: As our commenters have pointed out below, the update also features desktop syncing and the ability to move the app to the SD card. Yay!

    You missed an important feature:
    Desktop syncing is finally available for the Android version of Docs to Go. That's what the picture is of, but you never actually mentioned it. This is a huge deal for a lot of people. Makes syncing your docs much easier.

    And an even more important feature... Move To SD has now been implemented!!
    Yay!

    Now if only CoPilot and Skype would implement as well maybe I could run some more apps....
