If creating and editing documents on the go is important to you, you will be very pleased to find out that the Google Docs app for iPhone and Android has been updated to offer offline editing.
You won’t need us to tell you that the ability to edit documents offline is a major attraction. Better yet, Google Docs offine editing is available on the iPhone and iPad too, not just Android which is nice to see.
Google has also made this feature free for everyone to use. Simply install the app and once you are signed into Google you’ll be able to view a list of existing docs that you already had saved to your Google account.
If you need to create a new document, this is very straight forward and it could save you hours trying to do the same job on third-party apps. The ability to perform these tasks will be a god send too when you just need to get some work done on the plane or train and it looks like everyone is loving the new update.
The new Google Docs app for the iPad is brilliant. Seamless integration with G-Drive and proper OFFLINE editing functionality 🙂

Another massive feature of Google Docs is that you can import documents from Microsoft Word over and continue to edit. Whilst you are editing, your work will continue to be saved automatically as well so you won’t have to worry about potentially losing your work.
For tablet owners, Google Docs for iPad is very efficient too and could be your new work companion once you get started with the basics and learn how to use the app properly.
Let us know your reaction to Google Docs if you have started using this recently on Android, iPhone and iPad. Is it the best app that Google has released for free in your opinion?
We would also like your feedback on features that are missing and what you would like to see in the next update.
