I really like google docs. I treat it like an online notebook that I use to create my study notes because I can easily edit them back anytime, as compared to jotting them down on note books (plus, my handwritings are unreliable). But it gets a bit frustrating when I need to access the notes during urgent times (like when prof suddenly pops a question and you remember writing down the details in your notes). It takes too long a time to load, in my opinion. And when I want to change my view settings, sometimes it lags, freezes and stops functioning all together.

Maybe improvements to make this app’s functionings more smoother can be considered. That’d be great.

Next, I think it would be great if a reading mode can be created. Like for instance in cases where you just want to view a document without making any adjustments or unintentionally clicking on the notes and all together destroying the contents or so. A reading mode option would be really helpful.

Google Docs Review

This app is incredibly helpful until you can’t live without it.
It is best document app I have ever used. The best part of this app is that this app automatically saves any changes and there is no such thing as having to press the save button again and again. - Zhang En, 14 years old.

A lot of room for improvement

Google docs in general is great! but there are great discrepancies in what we get on a computer and on an ipad. Apple and google need to work together to iron out this issue if they really want to market the ipad as a replacement for a laptop.

It's completely ridiculous that i can't crop an image on the ipad os or ios version of google docs. Making tables are a nightmare compared to word and pages.
There is a lot of work that should be done, and the funny thing is, it would be pretty straight forward for google and apple software engineers and developers to give the consumers this. I just can't understand the reason for keeping the deficiency between the web version and mobile/ipad versions.
