Google Docs for Android Converts Photos Into Text Docs

Google Docs (Android) So Android users, was this worth the five-month delay after the Apple iOS Google Docs app?
On Wednesday, Google launched an official Google Docs app for Android that can convert photos of text into text documents, but still uses a web browser to edit docs.
In a blog post, Google wrote, "With this new app it's easy to filter and search for your own content across any Google account, then jump straight into editing docs using the online mobile editors. The app also allows you to easily share items with contacts on your phone, right from within the app."
But as some users have already noted, and we later verified with a Nexus One, the app basically uses a Web browser to load and edit documents – the interface is the same as you'd find through your own mobile browser, except with more limitations. For instance you can't delete individual Google documents, access stored music, video, or PDF files, or edit rich text files.
But wait! It does have one unmatched feature you won't find in the iOS version launched last December. Using the same technology behind Google Goggles, called "optical character recognition" (OCR), the app can parse text from a photo and convert it into a document.
For instance, after I clicked "create a new document from photo," I photographed a printed product description for guitars, and the app automatically converted it into a text document. It doesn't work for handwriting, special fonts, or non-English languages for now, Google said. Click on the slideshow below to see the results.
The app also introduces a widget to your home screen that lets you jump to starred documents, take a photo to upload, or create a new document in a single tap.
