Google Drive app is already available for both Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad) devices. Google Drive until now was good for some basic document editing functionality. Google went forward and released official dedicated apps for Google Docs and Google Sheets. Both of the new Google Docs app and Google Sheets app are available as free downloads on both platforms. The company is soon going to release a dedicated app for Google Slides too. With the launch of the new apps, Google seems to be in a better place to compete with its rival Microsoft’s Office app for Android and iOS.

The launch of dedicated apps, the company is breaking out of the single Google Drive app. This approach has its own added benefits. Google Docs for instance may get more powerful with more functions. Google Sheets will handle all the worksheets that you may want to edit or create while you are on the move. Once, Google Slides app is out, you will be able to handle all the presentations. This will also make Google Drive work faster as it will have to only take care of the file storage. Google Drive may become lighter in download size as all the extra codes present for document edit functions may get removed from it. If you don’t download the new apps now, Google Drive will prompt you to download them in a next few days, when you try to edit or create a document or spreadsheet in your Google Drive app.

Microsoft’s Office for iPad Apps was officially released by the Redmond-based software giant in the last week of March, 2014. Office for iPad App is the iPad optimized avatar of the Microsoft’s popular productivity suite, Office 365. Instead of a single app, Office for iPad Apps is basically a collection of apps. The collection includes Word for iPad app, Excel for iPad app, PowerPoint for iPad app, and OneNote for iPad app.

Microsoft Office is one of the most popular productivity suite among the Windows PC and Apple OS X owners. Combine it with Microsoft Office 365 subscription and you can open up a whole new world. The popularity of the productivity suite says for itself when Office for iPad Apps collection climbed to the top of App Store.
