Editing Google Docs on Android

I've heard that you can only edit word documents and spreadsheets on Google Docs for Android. Does anyone know if this is true?

First, are you trying to edit on an Android platform, or in Mint?

If you are editing on an Android platform, there are other options for editing documents and spreadsheets, but you seem to be specifying Microsoft Office type documents. If this is so, you are limited at present AFAIK to Google Docs and the Microsoft web offerings if you want to later share them back with the Microsoft Office originators.

On Mint, you can also use LibreOffice, Zoho Office, Abiword/Gnumeric on GNOME derivatives, or Koffice products on KDE.

What I meant is that I heard that you can't edit the google docs version of powerpoint, not MS Office.
