Google Drive: iOS Version Gets Updates, Sheets Has New Features

December 12, 2013 Updated: July 18, 2015

Google Drive now has updated features on the iOS to include sorting and searching.

The sorting feature includes the options “last sorted by me,” “last edited by me,” “Title (default),” and “last opened by me,” as well as granting iPad and iPhone users the ability to “Find and Replace” text in documents.

There’s also a find and replace feature, which allows users to tap the magnifying glass icon to enter a “find” parameter in the top field and then “replace” in the lower one.

Google also provided “a few under-the-hood stability improvements,” according to CNET.

Drive’s Sheets app also got some overall improvements.

Sheets now allows users to edit spreadsheets offline, and the work that has been already done will be synced up with Drive when it gets online again.

There’s also more robust features.

“The new Sheets supports millions of cells and kicks many of the old size and complexity limits to the curb. Scrolling, loading and calculation are all snappier, even in more complex spreadsheets,” Google said in a blog post.

There’s also a “filter views” that “lets you quickly name, save and share different views of your data. This comes in handy when you’re collaborating so you can sort a spreadsheet without affecting how others see it,” it reads, adding that there’s a “new function help” feature to “now easier to set up and perform calculations.”
