Google's productivity suite, Google Drive, has seen some nifty improvements lately. But as far as mobile devices are concerned, writing and editing has been a challenge.
Thankfully, Google is launching mobile versions of Google Docs and Google Sheets today. Google tells us that Google Slides is up next.
For power users, the apps offer benefits including quick editing and offline support. Yes, finally, we can create files without the need for an Internet connection. Also, opening the apps will automatically display the recently edited files. No more extra taps or scrolling.
Google will begin notifying Google Drive users on iOS and Android to download the separate apps. Of course, you can still use the Drive app. If you want a better experience, you may download the apps on Android and iOS now.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
