App of the Week: Google Docs and Sheets Standalone Apps

by rocketmatter-admin May 2, 2014

Google launched new standalone mobile apps for Docs and Spreadsheets, with Slides coming soon.
Divorcing the individual apps from Drive gives users the ability to quickly access and use their favorite Google apps on the go. It’s also probably a response to the recently launched and very popular suite of mobile apps from Microsoft.
The apps come with offline support built in, so you can easily view, edit and create files without an Internet connection.
With Google Docs you can:
– Create new documents or open and edit any that you started on the web or another device.
– Share documents and work together with others in the same document at the same time
– Get stuff done anytime–even without an internet connection
– Add and respond to comments
– Never worry about losing your work–everything is automatically saved as you type
With Google Sheets you can:
– Create new spreadsheets or open and edit any that you started on the web or another device.
– Share spreadsheets and work together with others in the same spreadsheet at the same time
– Get stuff done anytime–even without an internet connection
– Format cells, enter/sort data, perform various sheet operations, and more
– Never worry about losing your work–everything is automatically saved as you type
I use Google Docs and Sheets (as their spreadsheet program is now called), and it’s great to have the new streamlined option to quickly work on the go – especially with offline access.
These new standalone apps are available for iOS and Android devices.
