Google Docs Views More Documents In More Places

This image described by iPad, iPhone, Android, Google Docs, Google-docs-viewer

If you need to view and potentially assorted MS Office documents, but don't actually HAVE Office installed, Google Docs has you covered. The web app has been recently upgraded to parse uploaded MS Word .doc and .docx documents, PowerPoint (.ppt) slide decks, Adobe Acrobot (.pdf) files, even TIFF images.  Now there's even a version that plays nice with the browser on iPhones, iPads, and Android handsets, with pinch zoom-in/zoom-out on the Apple hardware.

The only glaring omission, if you believe the commenters on Google's blog announcement, is the inability to edit the documents on the mobile platforms — which seems, especially in the iDevices' case, to be a fault with the platform, *cough*lack of Flash support*cough*.
