Fills out iOS productivity suite
Google is today launching a new iOS app, Slides. Much like Microsoft PowerPoint, Slides lets people create and edit presentations. Because these files are stored in the cloud, users can start work on one device and continue on another, including via the Slides web app. Collaboration features let several people work on a presentation simultaneously; any changes to a file are saved automatically, and the app can work both on and offline. Offline changes are uploaded after reconnection.
In addition to native projects, Slides can load PowerPoint presentations. Simultaneously, in fact, Google has updated Docs and Sheets with support for Microsoft Word and Excel documents. All three titles are free downloads.
