Google Docs and Sheets add limited iPad Pro support, still no multitasking

Google has issued a couple of updates for its Docs and Sheets apps for iPhone and iPad, adding support for the iPad Pro. Both apps also gain a number of bug fixes and performance improvements, while Docs gets a word counter.

Unfortunately, while both apps are now compatible with the higher resolution of the iPad Pro's display, neither have added support for Split View or Slide Over multitasking. This means that both apps will continue to be second-class citizens for iPad productivity for the time being.

You can grab both updates from the App Store now.

  • Google are really becoming lazy developers. It's not a good look Sent from the iMore App
  • I wonder if Google is doing so deliberateLay as a way to convince users to switch tomAndroid for a better experience. Don't know personally as I don't use those Google services, just a thought.
  • Oh wow, I mentioned that the apps were updated on the other article, and you guys updated your original analysis. Very nice! Does the new update fix the on screen keyboard popping up while still docked with the physical keyboard?
