Google Drive incorporates offline editing and iOS app

Google today released a new feature in Google Drive that makes it possible to edit documents even when there is no internet connection.

According to the search engine, the changes made by the user are saved in Chrome / Chrome OS and synchronized automatically as soon as the internet is available again.

“We’re also working to make the offline editing feature available for Sheets and Slides in the future,” published Clay Bavor, Director of Product Management at Google Drive.

Google also announced the launch of a Google Drive app for Apple’s mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

“With the Google Drive app, you can open PDFs, photos, videos, documents and other files stored on your Drive while on the go. You can also search all your files, add collaborators to documents and make files available offline, ”said Bavor, during his Keynote at Google I / O 2012.
