Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides have each gained a feature that makes on-the-go editing of documents, spreadsheets, and presentations quicker and easier. There’s real-time spell-checking for Docs, the ability to hide rows and columns in Sheets, and support for grouping shapes in Slides, as demoed below:
All three apps have also gained a couple of features, one enhancing their security and the other their accessibility.
In addition to supporting Google’s two-step verification security measure, all three apps now support Touch ID, enabling you to unlock the app with your fingerprint on iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3.
The new versions of Docs, Sheets, and Slides also offer better accessibility to visually impaired users with VoiceOver compatibility and improved responsiveness to screen magnification.
Their new and improved versions come shortly after the announcement that the popular office productivity app CloudOn has been acquired and set to be shut down by Dropbox. So, if you’re a CloudOn user who’s looking for alternatives, check out Google’s newly updated trio of office productivity apps, in addition, of course, to Microsoft’s official Word, Excel and Powerpoint apps for iOS.
