    AppleInsider reports that Google has launched three new standalone iOS apps that enable the user to edit and create Google Docs, Sheets and Slides on their iPhone.

    Previously, Google’s Drive app was the only first-party means of accessing Google Docs on your iPhone or iPad, and Google says that it introduced these three new apps because so many customers were asking for them.

    As AppleInsider notes, Google may also have been prompted to launch these new apps by the arrival of Microsoft Office 365 for iPad, which left Google Docs trailing behind both Office and Apple’s iWork suite as a choice for those users who want to edit documents on the go.

    Docs and Sheets are both available now for free from the app store, and Slides will be available very soon.

    Google just removed the ability to edit their documents and spreadsheets in the Google Drive app. When you select and try to edit your documents in Google Drive, they will automatically open in the appropriate app, if you've downloaded it. Otherwise you'll get a prompt telling you to download the new app(s).

    Other than better offline editing support, there does not appear to be any new features.

    I haven't tried Google Docs yet. Maybe it's a good start.
