It seems that today's the day when important apps have received noticeable updates, as we've previously covered Dropbox and OneDrive. Now we're talking about the new Google Slides app released for iPhone and iPad owners, which is Google's counterattack product to Microsoft's PowerPoint app.
Thus, with this launch, Google Slides joins word processor Google Docs and spreadsheet solution Google Sheets to complete the productivity apps seen in suites like Microsoft Office and Apple's iWork. By using Slides, you can create, edit and collaborate on presentations directly from any compatible iOS device. The free app also connects to Google's cloud for Web-based editing and sharing across multiple platforms.
Slides supports real-time collaboration and persistent document saving. There's also an offline work mode which comes built-in, and Microsoft PowerPoint files can be opened, edited and saved. You can present directly from your iPad or iPhone finished projects, which is a nice feature, indeed.
Google also rolled out updates to Docs and Sheets, both expanding support for files originating from Microsoft's Office suite of apps. Docs users can now open, edit, and save Microsoft Word files, while Sheets users can now do the same with Microsoft Excel files.
Google Slides is a free 61.5MB download from the iOS App Store. Go ahead and follow the download link from below to get it. Let us know what you think of it by leaving your comment below.
