As it looks to broaden the availability of its Docs productivity suite, Google has announced plans to release a version tailored for Apple’s iPad and the growing crop of Android-based mobile devices.
Google made the announcement at a conference in Paris, where it boasted that more than 3 million businesses and 30 million users have signed on to its cloud-based apps. Enterprise Mobile Today has the story.
Google this week said that it will begin offering its Google Docs productivity suite for the iPad and Android-powered mobile devices in the next few weeks, giving mobile users the ability to work and collaborate in real time from their smartphones.
In a blog post on its website, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) said enterprise workers will be able to “co-edit files simultaneously from an even wider array of devices,” and, unsaid, give iPad users a viable alternative to Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) iWorks presentation, word processing and spreadsheet management suite.
