Google has updated its Google Drive app for iOS to version 1.3.0, featuring landscape-style editing for both documents and spreadsheets on the iPhone.

Shown below, the new landscape functionality comes in addition to performance improvements and the usual bug fixes. Landscape editing was also previously available to iPad users.

According to Google, “Google Docs now loads faster with quicker editing support.”


This update brings Google Drive’s iOS app in line with its Android counterpart, as the Android version previously supported landscape editing and received a number of performance improvements back in February.
