Google Docs, Sheets get iOS 9 split screen (finally)
Warning: This story has not been updated in several years and may contain out-of-date information.
This is a big deal for iPad users. Now it’s possible to update a Google document or spreadsheet while also viewing Safari or using any other multitasking-capable app you can think of. I do a lot of podcast planning in both Google Sheets and Google Docs, and the inability to share time with a second app has been frustrating for quite a while. (We switched from Google Docs to Quip for Upgrade for exactly this reason.)
In any event, I’m glad that these apps have finally added solid support for iOS 9, only 11 months after it was introduced.
