Before I get your hopes up, no they haven't improved spreadsheets yet. However, that is on the way. What is arriving now, though, is the ability to add comments to your documents, view tables, and improved Google presentations viewing support. You'll even get speaker notes and the ability to swipe between slides.

There are more features on their way. Here at Android Police HQ, we've been eagerly awaiting proper spreadsheet editing (which is currently horrible to an unusable degree), and Google has seen fit to name check that very feature in its "More to come..." section. Hopefully it won't be too much longer, and we'll finally be able to see the results of that Quickoffice purchase. A guy can dream, can't he?

    Next to the HTC going after Apple's I*hones and i*ads over LTE, this is the best news today!

    Seconded on the spreadsheets -- they're the #1 reason I use Drive, so the all-but-useless mobile UI (can't insert/delete cells, can't edit formulas, and the whole thing acts like a pre-AJAX web app -- seriously, Google, why?) is an enormous pain point.

    Why are Google using iPad to advertise their service? Why not an Android tablet and phone?

    google is trying to steal apples icloud reliant customers so that once they switch, google knows those customers will be ready to pay for their service and maybe will even increase their prices
