Editing Documents Using the Google Drive iPad App

If you have a Google account and you are using iPads, there is a great app from the iTune store, Google Drive, that allows you to edit Google Documents on your iPad.

First you need to be sure that you change your Google account to Google Drive. You can do that by going to http://drive.google.com.  Use  Sign Up to sign up for Google Drive using the Google UserName and Password that you already have. When you close Google and sign-in again you will see Drive in the menu.
Your documents are now being saved in the cloud and this is where you can find them when signed-on to Google.

The app allows you to make basic changes to a Google documents but not to spreadsheets or presentations as of now. Google is working on that feature. I tried the Google Drive iPad app out and I’m very happy.

Some of the features that are included are in the following list:

  • Change to a very basic fonts
  • Change the size of the font
  • Change the text color
  • Change the background behind the text
  • Bold, Italics, and Underline
  • Use numbered lists or bulleted lists
  • Indents

Here are a few screenshots to help you see how basic and simple this app is.
