Google Drive Android, iOS Apps Can Now Edit Spreadsheets

November 28, 2012

The Google Drive apps for Android and iOS have been updated to allow users to edit spreadsheets on the go. Furthermore, the mobile Drive app has been improved by including better text formatting when pasting between documents and allowing text editing within tables in documents. You can even add a file shortcut on the homescreen, if you have an Android smartphone or tablet, of course. Grab the Android version from Google Play and iOS version from iTunes.

From Google:
“Just in time for this year’s holiday season, you can edit Google Sheets on your mobile device, just like you can with Google Docs. From the Drive app on your Android device, iPhone or iPad, you can create a new spreadsheet or edit an existing one. You can switch fonts, resize columns, sort data, and more. And just like on your computer, you’ll be able to see other people’s edits in real time as they’re made.”

1. Edit Google spreadsheets in new native editor

3. Formatting is maintained when copy/pasting within Google Docs
4. Single tap to enter edit mode in Google Docs editor
5. Add a shortcut to Drive files/folders to your homescreen for quick access
