Our initial thoughts back when Google first introduced Google Docs for mobiles was, “cool, but where’s the edit button?” It stood to reason that Google would eventually add editing capabilities to its mobile offering and while it took a bit longer than many had hoped, Google is finally showing signs of life. As of this morning, G1, iPhone / iPod Touch and S60 users now have the ability to edit Google spreadsheets with nothing more than their OEM mobile browser of choice. A host of functionality is available including the ability to view, edit, sort and filter data, as well as the ability to actually input data. In other words, Google spreadsheets for mobile is actually useful now! All we have to do now is keep our fingers crossed that documents are next in line.
