Docs to Go 3.0 for Android Within a Week


Remember when RIM acquired DataViz? Yea, me neither. But apparently, they did. Regardless, that isn’t stopping them from releasing version 3.0 of their suite of document viewing and editing app. We first heard about all of the exciting new features and changes back in May of this year, but I knew at that time we were still a long way off from a final release. The wait is getting shorter, however, as they’ve finally committed to a launch date.

“Sorry for the delay everyone… we are hoping to release this week/beginning of next week!!”

For the upgrade to 3.0, they’re touting support for Office 2010 files (complete with password protection). Other notable improvements include a better file managing experience, multi-touch support for the PDF viewer, and a Windows application that will allow you to sync files between your Android phone and your PC.

I bought the full version back in May for $5.55 for their special Cinco de Mayo sale, and it has been worth every cent of that. If you jumped on that deal like I did (or happened to buy it any time since it’s launched on Android), you’ll be glad to know that you won’t have to pay another cent for this significant upgrade. (Many were worried about that considering how the ecosystem for upgrading applications to newer versions on Blackberry and WinMo works.)

We’ll be looking out for this to hit the market whenever it finally does, hopefully by next Friday!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I think i’ll wait and see what Google Docs on Android has to offer before looking at buying this.

  2. finally! i’ve been waiting for this for months but i’m a bit confused. The title of the article says it’s coming in a couple of weeks yet the quote says the end of this week…

  3. Awesome program, I use this every day. Probably the best purchse I’ve made in the market to date.

  4. I would have bought this app long ago from the Android market but didn’t since it does not enable the apps to SD card feature. I will buy any decent document management app that has apps to SD card enabled.until then I will use the free versions only as many of these apps are a few mbs in size and internal memory available for apps is a problem on many Android phones including phones like the HTC desire which has a crap 147 mb available for apps only. until manufacturers put in decent internal memory on phones the apps to internal memory problem on android will hamper sales of big apps and games on Android. No point of 32gb micro sdhc cards as many large apps go only on internal memiry only which is poor on many android phones including top of the lijne htc phones.

  5. Available in the market NOW…

  6. …actually, just the 3.0 key is available (it the app itself) WTF?

  7. OK, now it’s there…

  8. It’s available already, as when I went to check for market updates this was one of them.

    I like the new interface! It’s a lot more streamlined, and intuitive. My pops also likes it, and is considering picking up this app.

  9. I like the new Interface and the Google Docs integration.

  10. Just downloaded my update today. Have the full versoion from their 9.99 sale. Haven’t tried the updated version yet, but apps2sd caught it as being able to be moved to sd card. Went from 9.7mb to just over 5. Will have to try it later today when I get home from work.
