The updates add support for the largest screen on the iPhone X and support for drag and drop functions on the iPad.
Google today updated its office applications for iPhone X and iOS 11 . According to MacStories , the update affects the Docs document editor , the Slides presentation editor and the Sheets spreadsheet web service .
The updates published this morning in the App Store by Google added support for two very important features of iOS 11. One, the compatibility with the largest screen of the iPhone X. And another, compatibility with the functions of drag and drop on the iPad.
Google applications now take full advantage of the largest screen on the iPhone X , extending to the four corners of the screen. The toolbars are integrated with the form factor of the device, although in general the updating of the user interface does not add too many changes.
On the iPad , you can now use drag and drop with several applications to insert content into Google apps . In Google Docs, for example, it is possible to release a Safari link, a photo image or a text selection from an email client directly in the editor.
Of course, it seems that Docs does not support the reception of rich text from other applications. When text formatted in a document is released, it becomes plain text.
Even with these limitations, it is interesting to see Google adapting to the features of Apple’s latest hardware and software . A proof that he trusts the possibilities of his productivity apps against those of Apple: Pages, Numbers and Keynote.
