Google Docs web editing goes live for webOS

For a long time we in the webOS world have been standing on the outside looking in when it comes to Google Docs. Sure, you can get your editing on through apps like Scratch, but sometimes all you really want to do is log in through the web browser and do some old fashioned web-enabled word processing.

Folks, you can put your longing days behind you. As dj_ozone first noted in our forums, Google Docs editing is now live and functional on webOS, and unlike some of the more recent webOS news, this one isn’t limited to just webOS 2.1 users – Docs and Spreadsheets editing has been confirmed all the way back to webOS 1.4.5 phones. Not every feature is working through the browser just yet (cloud printing, for example), and you do have to deal with the unsupported browser warning, but by and large it just works the way it should.

Hopefully this will be enough to satiate our appetites for document editing until QuickOffice manages to release the promised full editing version of their app for webOS. It’s only been over six months, guys...
