The Google Drive app for iPad and iOS has been updated this week, to Version 1.2.0.
One of the most notable additions in this update is the ability to work with and edit spreadsheets. Another is support for the iOS ‘Open In’ feature – to allow other apps to upload to Drive using it.
Here’s the full change list for Version 1.2.0:
★ Create, edit and collaborate on spreadsheets
★ Upload to Drive from other apps using “Open in…”
★ Manage upload progress and see recent uploads in new Uploads section
✓ Rich text copy-paste within a document
✓ Improved speed and stability
✓ Improved contact search for sharing
☂ Bug fixes
When the Google Drive iPad app was first released it was extremely disappointing, as it had pretty much view only capabilities. It’s good to see that over the last few months the app has become much more capable and useful. The more good file storage and management options we have on the iPad, the better.
Here’s an App Store link for Google Drive; it’s a free app and a universal app designed for both the iPad and the iPhone.
