Google Drive for iOS updates with support for “landscape” document editing on the iPhone

Knowing that more and more people are using this service, Google has updated the official Google Drive application for iOS by adding additional features that bring it a little closer to the web version. Version 1.3 of the application allows something that users have been asking for a lot: being able to edit documents with the iPhone in a horizontal position.

Google Drive for iOS has always allowed editing of these documents, but always in an upright position. And since we’re talking about text documents and spreadsheets, the landscape position is appreciated on such small screens and especially when working with external keyboards. The overall performance of the application , which is too slow in some cases with large documents, has also been improved .

Google knows full well that the iWork suite has not been updated for a long time (although it still has good adoption figures), and these slight but regular improvements by its direct rival are attracting more and more users’ attention. Not to mention that Google Drive is free, while each iWork application for iOS costs $8.99. Maybe that’s not something Cupertino is concerned about, but Google’s office automation solutions in the cloud are a serious contender if we focus on the general user.

Which application or service do you use from your iOS terminals to create documents or spreadsheets? Do you use the benefits of iWork with iCloud or have you decided to switch to another service? Feel free to leave your feedback. Remember that Google Drive for iOS is universal and optimized for the screens of all iOS devices .
