Google Docs on iPad

This week Google Docs has added a little love for the iPad. When working with Google Docs in the Safari browser on the iPad you can now switch into Desktop mode – which provides a good number of style and formatting options (things like changing fonts, aligning paragraphs and so on) that you don’t see in the standard Mobile mode. 

The desktop mode also allows you to insert formulas into a spreadsheet document, via Spreadsheet View.

I’ve only tried out these new features very quickly on my iPad – as I tend to work with Google Docs via the excellent Office2 HD app most of the time. If you’ve been using the new Desktop mode a lot, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
