The latest update to the Google Drive iOS app will give users the ability to edit and create documents within Google Drive on the iPad and iPhone.
As a newer iPad user, and long time iPhone user, this is a pretty big deal. The iOS devices have always been more about consumption than creation. Sure it’s gotten better over the years and lots of apps have been created to assist with doing more content creation than consumption. In my experience they’ve been a bit hit and miss so far though. Some apps have helped me do more creating, I say as I type this in the WordPress app for example, but none have really allowed me to create a new document and store it in the same app, using a service many of us are already using. That seems like a nice addition to my iPad app collection.
How have you been creating documents on iOS devices? Will this announcement by Google change your current plans?
