google docs app for android2.1+.with OCR support

Though google docs could be accessed online;till date there was a lack of a good app for google docs.No more.Google solved this by introducing an app for google docs for mobile phones.The only catch is the phones must support android 2.1+ as operating system.
Features of this new app is:
1.easily filter and search content across any Google account
2.edit docs using the online mobile editors
3.easily share items with contacts on phone, right from within the app.
4.upload content from phone
5.open documents directly from Gmail
6.home screen widget support
7.but the best one is OCR support
Using the app and your phone’s camera, you can turn photos with text into editable Google documents with the power of optical character recognition (OCR). Just create a new ‘Document from Photo' or select the camera icon from the widget, and your converted document will appear in your documents list shortly after you snap the picture. You can also convert photos already stored on your phone by sharing them with the Google Docs app. OCR does a pretty good job capturing unformatted text in English but won't recognize handwriting or some fonts - stay tuned, it will get better over time!
