IPad Now Compatible With Desktop Version of Google Docs
While many of us just enjoy playing games, writing emails, and flipping through pictures on our iPads, there are a group of people out there who use them to get real work done. And those people have another tool now. Awhile ago, Google made it possible to edit documents from your iOS devices. This meant that your iPad was good for more than just reading when it came to Google Docs. They’ve went a step further now, opening up the desktop version of Google Docs for those who need to do some more in depth editing on their iPads.
This probably isn’t something you’ll use everyday. But we’ve all come up against a situation where it’s necessary to generate some spreadsheet data or change text alignment, and when it comes to Google Docs these alterations weren’t possible (or at least not without a ton of effort) until now. Google is not making a big deal about this; rather, they’re offering a link to the desktop version of Google Docs “for one-off times when you need to make an advanced change.”
They still point you to the new mobile editor for everyday use, calling it “fast and lightweight.” Still, it’s nice to have an option for those unique situations where more depth is called for, so thanks to Google for recognizing this.
