The Google Drive app for iPad and iOS was released last week. In my post about the release of Google Drive and Chrome for iPad I spoke too soon, in saying that it was good to see that both these apps have proper iPad versions.
Sadly, it turns out the Google drive app is nothing like a proper iPad app. It’s an app that only lets you view or share your Google Docs / Google Drive documents. The app does not offer any editing capability right now.
The Google Drive Android app allows editing. 3rd party apps like Office2 HD allow editing of all types of Google Docs. So this really begs the question why Google even bothered to release this for iOS?
I don’t see much of any use for this app and other than as a gesture of ‘we don’t care about iOS’ I can’t think of a reason to have released it.
Do any of you find the Google Drive app useful at all?
