Google today released updates for its Docs and Sheets app for iOS devices. It also launched the Google Drive Slides app for iPhone and iPad. This new application brings all of the features that users have already taken advantage of through the web version. Basically the app will make it easier for users to create presentations on the fly using their iOS smartphone or tablet.

The Slides app will let users create new presentations or edit one that was created on the web or on another device. Multiple users can work together in the same presentation simultaneously, which can also be shared through various channels. The app has the ability to open, edit and save Microsoft PowerPoint files.

It even features a presentation mode so users can make presentations straight through their devices. Its possible to create and edit files even when there’s no internet connection, the app saves everything automatically as the user types so there’s never the risk of losing progress.

As previously mentioned both Docs and Sheets apps for iOS have been updated. They now have the ability to open Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel files respectively. Sheets is also able to use find/replace, view charts and insert formulas.
