    My documents show up in the google docs app, however when I click it to open the document is blank. This is the case for every document I have. I just checked on my home computer and it's still there, however why doesn't it appear on my phone? I even went to the google doc website on my phone and every document was blank. I tried restoring w/ titanium and didn't have any luck with that.

    I tried opening the application and clearing data, however after reassigning my accounts I still had blank documents. The title of all 15 documents shows up, but it's all blank

    I've noticed this also! My spreadsheets are all missing data but colors in their corresponding placeholder remain. Very annoying little glitch

    There's an app called GDocs (Google Docs). Try that.

    Yep. I've been using it for about 5 months now. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is? I cleared all form data, cache, etc, etc on my browser, but still when I login w/ my phone there is no information in the forms! I also removed google docs and reinstalled. It's there on my computer browser though. wtf????!

    I even installed dolphin and tried going to the website and my data was still missing!!! At one point in the comments I remember them saying that, "If you are having issues w/ lost data....." and that's all I remember. I can't find that comment anymore. So I know it's an issue they know about and I've posted on their website a couple times, but honestly it's so hard to navigate I have no idea where my post is so I can't see if anybody has commented.

    Hopefully someone can help me out because I record data daily w/ gdocs and don't want to have to pay $15 for docs to go

    Can't believe it's so hard to even google the problem when this is a google problem! You'd think it wouldn't be so difficult, but I haven't found a fix yet

    My documents were all blank. I uninstalled GDocs and then downloaded again. Problem fixed.

    Thanks. For some reason that worked today even though I tried it twice over the past couple days and a reinstall didn't work. I don't know why it works now but I'm thankful it does!
