Google Sheets for iPad

Google has released two new apps for iOS, one for Docs and one for Sheets. The two apps are dedicated to viewing and editing text documents, as opposed to the Google Drive app, which shows all of your documents in one place. It's a way to easily find all of your documents of a single type. Both apps support all of the features that you would expect.

You can create new documents, edit existing ones, both online and off, and work collaboratively. Docs lets you add and respond to comments. Both apps function very much like the Google Drive app, including the ability to pin files for offline editing. However, unlike Drive for iOS, Docs and Sheets display all of your documents in the same view, including documents that have been shared with you by another user.

Google says that in addition to Docs and Sheets, a Google Slides app is on its way. You can download both universal apps from the App Store now.

I wish Google would stop using those awful 3Dish icons. They stand out like a sore thumb on an iOS home screen.

machzk says:

They are nice by themselves, but don't fit well with the rest of icons. That bothers me.

Rowanova says:

Maybe standing out us their point?

Yeh I figured most people don´t. I am funny like that.

Darryl Brian says:

Interesting that the hangouts app icon doesn't have that 3d effect.

Yes in fact after that update I was hopeful for an across the board change, but I guess not.

counterculture says:

I didn't really notice this until you mentioned it but now...I hate them! I always thought Google had pretty decent looking apps but why they added the shaded bottom/3D effect, like you mentioned, is beyond me. Sore thumb indeed.
