Google Drive update brings more features

Google Drive
If you are the person that edits spreadsheets whilst on the go, you would be please to hear of this new update to the Google Drive app. The latest version of the app on the Android platform allows you to do just that. The new update introduces some new features that should make your life much easier.

Previously the editing of spreadsheets were limited to a slightly unappealing web-based UI, with this new update, spreadsheets have gotten their own UI, complete with the ability to zoom, directly edit formulae and resize and re-style cells.

There are also a few minor changes, like the ability to maintain formatting when copying and pasting within Docs, and the ability to add home screen shortcuts to specific files or folders.

  • Edit Google spreadsheets in new native editor
  • Edit contents of tables in Google Docs editor
  • Formatting is maintained when copy/pasting within Google Docs
  • Single tap to enter edit mode in Google Docs editor
  • Add a shortcut to Drive files/folders to your homescreen for quick access
  • Send Link now supports copying link to clipboard
