Google Docs on Android

So I’ve been playing with and liking Swype. I’ve set up a quick WordPress blog and installed the WordPress App so I can quickly write notes and post a blog without much effort. Not so much microblogging as miniblogging.

What I also thought I’d be able to do was to edit Google Docs directly from my phone. That’s what I thought, but I was wrong. It turned out Android isn’t set up to do that. But there is an App called GDocs that is supposed to help out with this and allow you to edit your Docs. However, again my experiment was dashed by problems as GDocs doesn’t seem to work on the HTC Desire. Whilst I could download documents to the App on the phone and edit, the upload didn’t work as it should. So the search goes on. Hopefully there’ll be a solution; possibly the next upgrade on GDocs will do the job, or maybe Google will release a solution before too long. Fingers crossed.

PhoneGap – JavaScript programming apps for iPhone, Android, & more

I found this last night and noted it on Squire’s Daily Interest until I could write a post here.

PhoneGap looks sooooo interesting. It allows native phone apps to be produced for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and more in JavaScript.

It started from a two day iPhone Dev Camp. The underlying reason for it coming into being is that there aren’t that many Objective C developers, but there are a whole lot of HTML and JavaScript programmers.

Under the MIT Licence PhoneGap will always be opensource.

There’s already a list of apps created using PhoneGap.

The download is here.

Check out the video, it explains things a whole lot better:
