Updates to Google Docs app for Android: Offline access and improved tablet experience

You can now select any file in the Google Docs app to “make it available offline.” So regardless of whether you’re connected to the internet, you’re always connected to those files.

Google Docs automatically updates your offline files when you’re on Wi-Fi. You can also manually update files anytime you have a data connection by opening the file or tapping ‘Update’ from the Offline section of the app.

For users on Android tablets, there is also an improved Google Docs reading experience. Now, when you open a Google document on your tablet while online, you’ll get a high-resolution version of the document. Swipe left and right to flip between pages, or use the slider at the bottom to page ahead quickly.
