Google Adds Editing Capabilities to the Mobile Version of its Spreadsheet Program

Google & mobile spreadsheets

I wanted to flag a post on PhoneScoop by Eric Zeman that appeared recently. Eric writes that "Google has added editing capabilities to the mobile version of their spreadsheet program".  These new features will allow users to open the document on their smartphone and make changes that will be reflected when the document is next opened on a desktop computer.

I think this is a great example of mobile phones gaining more functionality for the enterprise, and this additional functionality is certainly beneficial in today’s mobile business world. Though now I believe you can't loose sight that good security and management for whatever device you are using, is a necessity.
