Google Apps on the iPad: The Good, The Great & The Ugly!

Using Google Apps for Education on the iPad has not always been a pleasurable experience, but things are changing. Google is constantly adding new features and updates to its popular suite of online productivity tools, and many of these changes are geared towards making their services more accessible on all platforms. For instance, the new Create menu in Drive is a much nicer way to select the type of document you want to create when doing so from an iPad or other mobile device.

Recently, I have given a number of presentations on the best ways for educators to access Google Apps on the iPad, so I decided to share a slideshow of my current findings below. I have no doubt that I will need to update this presentation very soon, but I will be glad to do so, because it will mean Google has made yet more changes to make their apps more palatable on iOS and other mobile platforms.

Are you in a Google Apps school that uses iPads? Do you have any tips you would like to share on the best ways to use Google on an iPad at school? If so, leave a comment below.
