Google releases a new office productivity app on iOS and updates two of its existing ones

Google releases a new office productivity app on iOS and updates two of its existing ones
We already showed you a list of a number of Google apps and services that you can access from your iOS device, but it seems that this list has just become a tad longer. The search giant has just launched one of its fairly popular productivity apps on Apple's mobile platform – Slides. It joins the ranks of Google Docs and Google Sheets, which makes Google's productivity suite on iOS almost complete. Creating, editing, and sharing a presentation on the fly from any supported iOS device is now possible thanks to Slides.

But that is not the only novelty in the productivity department on iOS. Speaking of Docs and Sheets, Google has also polished and refreshed these two. The text-editing Docs has been updated with support for opening, editing, and exporting Microsoft Word files (“.docx/.doc”), while Sheets can do the same thing with Microsoft Excel files (“.xlsx/.xls”). The latter also now allows its users to view charts, insert various formulae into them, as well as make use of the find and replace feature for each and every chart. 

These are some pretty neat and substantial additions to the productivity apps, which brings them almost on par with Microsoft's own Office Mobile app on the App Store. You can go ahead and download Slides from the links below for free, which is the usual case with Google.
