In the never-ending quest to compete with Dropbox, Google has updated their Google Drive app for iOS, adding support for editing documents in landscape on the iPhone. As you might imagine, this makes it much nicer to create and edit documents from the iPhone app, giving you a better view of the content you’re editing, and allowing you to use a wider version of the on-screen keyboard.
In addition to the new landscape iPhone editing support, the app has also been updated with significant speed and performance improvements. It’s a solid update that should come as a welcome improvement to anyone who frequently uses the app. From the release notes:
What’s New in Version 1.3.0
★ Landscape editing of documents & spreadsheets for iPhone ★ Google Docs now loads faster with quicker editing support ✓ Minor bug fixes
Google Drive is available as a free download from the App Store. Google Drive is also available for the Mac, and provides 5GB of free cloud storage, with paid upgrade options for those requiring additional storage space.
