With Google’s release of standalone mobile apps for Docs, Sheets, and Slides in 2014, users can directly create, edit and share files in the cloud while on the move.
Apart from seamless, real-time collaboration with other users, these productivity apps let device owners:
- Save time. The recently edited files are shown at the top of the list when you open the app. This significantly reduces the time you spend searching and scrolling.
- Work offline. The apps let you work even without an Internet connection. You can still take notes, make computations, or design slides while traveling, waiting in a long line, etc.
Google releases updates for these apps every now and then, to help you work more efficiently. In January 2015, they also added features such as fingerprint verification and screen magnification.
All Google’s productivity apps can be downloaded from Google Play or App Store at no cost. If you need Google Slide templates, feel free to browse our products in the Google Slides category.
