Sync Outlook Notes with new update of Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook®

In the latest version of Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook®, users can now sync Outlook Notes with their Google Docs account. This means that your notes in Outlook are synchronized with your Google Docs account in the cloud, which in turn syncs them with any other device where you open the same Outlook profile.
Things to note:
– Only top-level notes are synced
– Leave Docs as private, plain-text
– Categories aren’t synced

How to access what’s new:
Existing installs will be updated automatically.

Note: Please be aware that synchronizing notes with Google Docs is currently an early, or Beta release feature, available with Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook® version 2.3 or later.

Introducing the new Google Docs app for Android

Increasingly, people are using mobile phones to access information — from email to web browsing to editing documents. Part of getting work done on the go is being able to easily access, edit and share content, which is why we’re happy to announce the new Google Docs app for Android.

With this new app it’s easy to filter and search for your content across any Google account, then jump straight into editing docs using the online mobile editors. The app also allows you to easily share items with contacts on your phone, right from within the app.
The Docs app also allows you to upload content from your phone and open documents directly from Gmail. You can also add a widget to your home screen for easy access to three core tasks: jumping to your starred documents, taking a photo to upload, or creating a new document with one tap.

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!

The Google Docs app is currently available in English and works on Android 2.1+ phones.
