You should be able to do this natively. Android 3.0 (and below): In your launcher, press and hold on a blank area and click "Shortcuts". Select "Drive Shortcut", then your document, and it will create a link for you. Android 4.0 (and above) Open your app drawer and jump to the Widgets section. Swipe until you get to "Drive Shortcut". Long-press and drop ...

There is now an actual Google Docs application in the Market made by Google. You can take a look at it in the Market online here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.apps.docs&feature=search_result - I've used it and it's pretty similar to the online look, but with a more native feel. Hopefully, this is what you're looking for!

I do not believe this is the way Google Drive works. The app, if I am not mistaken, allows you to view (and edit some Google documents) but maintains them in the cloud. While it does allow you to download them, it saves them to your Download folder for local use only. You can choose photos you've taken from your gallery and upload them to Google Drive, but ...

Use FolderSync. I was using it to sync folders with Google Docs. After upgrading to Google Drive, sync still works. I have just tested by adding new Google Drive account. Google Drive is fully supported. Just, choose Google Docs when adding account in the app. In case, you don't want to pay, its free lite version is also in Play Store, but with some ...

You could simply use a bluetooth/wifi mouse app like PRemoteDroid. There are a bunch of others, and generally speaking they just allow your device to be used as a mouse/keyboard input. If you can pair with your PC it should work, although I've never tried it myself (I do use PRemoteDroid to pair with and remotely control my Xoom, though; works great). ...

All you need is an app locker app. There are many app lockers in Play Store. Just, search. I'd recommend Smart App Protector (I use its pro version which is great). Use it to lock Google Docs app.

Google Docs on Android has no offline cache at the moment. Source The Browser version has this functionality. I hope the Android App get's offline docs too, that would be awesome. :)

One reason you will not find an editor for android that supports fonts is probably because almost all android devices only come with 3 fonts, Droid-Serif, Droid-Sans and Droid-Sans-Mono. There are some devices that have other fonts, but from what I have seen, they are not "standard" fonts like you would see on a PC/Mac. Also, the editors are limited because ...

There are apps out there now that should make it easier to use google docs on your phone but an official app will be out soon according to CNET news. Google Docs Coming to iPad, Android

Goggle Drive gives you some security options regarding your documents: You can choose to encrypt all offline documents (that is, documents stored on your device); And can also choose to decrypt documents incrementally as they are streamed to your phone, by selecting the Streaming Decryption, thus having just a small portion of the document decrypted when ...

I didn't realize you can change the account to use when uploading the file. I don't understand how I missed it, but here it is: Given that the marked account value always changes back to the other account and I have to adjust it every time, I guess there is still merit in the question. But my problem was finding this UI item.

Google Presentation Remote is great and really easy to use on your Android phone. It is dependent on the Chrome Extension "Google Presentation Remote".

Click on the row number in the first column. Click the number again; a menu should pop-up. Click 4th button; a menu should popup with the following options: Insert above Insert below

If you've tried to clear it from the apps settings for Dropbox and Google Drive, you'll find there are no defaults set, because the default is set with the app that opens the file, not the app you open it from. From Apps in the device settings, go to Office Suite Pro's settings, and click Clear defaults there.

From self testing of the Drive, QuickOffice and the new Docs apps and an official Google blog posting, it seems like the strategy will be: Google Drive app to view and organize your files QuickOffice to open MS Documents Stand Alone Google Docs apps (Docs, Sheets, and eventually Slides) to open Google Doc Files Some testing I did shows (Moto X 4.4.2 with ...

Using the Google Drive App I created a test spreadsheet to investigate your question. I found the [1] to be a footnote - at the bottom of the spreadsheet is a list of all notes about validation for each applicable cell. The same applies to comments made to cells and, I suspect, other types of advanced cell formatting that don't translate well to small ...

I just tested QuickOffice Pro and it will do this. It didn't seem to ruin my existing google doc either.

Just had the same problem. According to this feature request, the feature is indeed not implemented in the current version of the Google Drive Android App. Apparently FolderSync does allow this (the free version works as well). You'll need to add Google Drive as a sync account, and then create a new "Folderpair", that allows you to pair a local folder to a ...

QuickOffice supports downloading Google spreadsheets, editing them, and then uploading the edited file. I'm not sure if it will create a new document on upload or replace the other one.

Documents to Go has support for downloading, editing and syncing your Google Docs from your device. The initial sync is slow and saving to Google Docs sometimes fails, but support is there.

There are multiple solutions available, depending on your goal. Probably none of them covers exactly what you describe, but maybe one of them comes pretty close, or a combination can be the solution for you. A bunch of apps like Expensify offer to keep track of your expenses. Here you can scan your receipts, record your milage, and more (the app takes care ...

I am using the latest version of Drive. I know there was a big update not long ago and I see this question was asked before the update. Anyway, just go to the cell/column/row and highlight it. Then tap on it again. Options will come up for "Clear" if it is just a cell or range. If it is a row or column "Delete" will be one of the options. I hope this ...

Firstly, this is assuming you have ICS or higher (not sure if the Gallery works this way before then). If you open an album, you should be able to long-press on a photo, and then at the top of the screen, where it says 1 selected, press that and you can say 'select all'. Then upload them.

This may not be helpful, but when I long press any file and set it to "Make available offline", it ends up in /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/com.google.android.apps.docs/files/pinned_docs_files_do_not_edit/{hexadecimal string}/. From there you should be able to copy them to some other location.

From the looks of it, at this point, marking something available offline only allows you to read it offline when using a mobile device (Source). However, you can edit and write files offline if you are using a computer or device running Chrome or Chrome OS. I'm sure at some point Google will allow editing offline, especially for tablets, but at this point, I ...
