I have tried several Google Docs editors for Android and none of them has fully featured editor functionality. Selecting things like fonts and colors is absent and I have actually tried two editors that completely messed up a document I had initially created using a computer. I read several reviews stating similar things. Does anyone know of a way to edit Google Docs documents using Android?
I just tested QuickOffice Pro and it will do this. It didn't seem to ruin my existing google doc either.
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 of screen size. You may see better editors come along with tablets, but even then, you are limited in screen real estate since you would need to have the on screen keyboard open with the editor.
There is a Google Docs app available on the market but I myself wasn't too keen. However, there is an called Documents to Go which allows the creation and editing office documents and Google docs.
To edit and create though you do need the paid version of the app as the free version is only a viewer but you need the free version installed with the paid version as the paid version is an unlock app. The app can be found at https://market.android.com/details?id=com.dataviz.docstogo&feature=search_result
Hope this helps
The best solution I have found so far is to access the desktop version (not mobile version) of a document with the FireFox browser for Android. This way, I am able to see all fonts just fine and edit the document without it suddenly adding characters at random or messing up the document. The only problem seems to be that FireFox does not seem to understand when to present the keyboard. I can force this by long-pressing my menu button. Sometimes I have to fiddle a bit before the characters I type show up in the document (maybe the reason for this was a flaky connection).
