Android offline Google docs


google docs
We’re moving into the age of the paperless office at work, so I’m looking to start using my wi-fi Nexus 7 to take notes on.

I can tether it to my mobile if necessary, and who knows they may one day entice BYOD by allowing us to connect our own devices to the companies wi-fi.

But until then I’d like to use my Android device offline.

Keep is great for lists and notes, I love the alarm that can be created and the tick boxes.

Although as an analyst what I really looking for though is an easy on the eyes spreadsheet.

Google docs ticks all the boxes, but doesn’t seem yet to work offline out of the box on Android… although it does on chrome.

My search for a solution begins!

I’d love to use Google docs, but that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen just yet.

So I’ve found 2 options to play with:
