Updates, New Slides App for Google Drive On Mobile

Earlier this year, Google released standalone apps for Google Docs and Google Sheets. The dedicated apps allow Google Apps users to quickly view, edit, and create files on the go. This week, Google is adding to its mobile arsenal by rolling out a standalone app for Slides, Google's Powerpoint competitor, on iOS. The mobile apps are robust like their web counterparts and include such features as real time collaboration, allowing you to work with your colleagues on files away from the office. Other features include offline editing built right in, allowing you to work even when you're away from a steady internet connection. Additionally, if you or a colleague wants to work on an Office document, editing is now built in so you no longer need to convert your files to make edits.
