Google launches native Google Docs and Sheets apps for iOS

New Google Logo
Today Google has launched native iOS apps for Google Docs and Google Sheets for the iPhone and iPad. Documents stored in these apps used to be restricted to Google Drive or on the web. We are glad to see these apps hit iOS. Google said that its presentation app, Google Slides, is “coming soon.”

Google’s release of these productivity apps happened shortly after Microsoft released Office for the iPad. Microsoft released Office for iPad free last month for viewing files. Editing files on Office for iPad requires a monthly subscription to Office 365.
