ON YOUR IPAD

There is not a perfect way to fully edit Google Docs/Drive files on the iPad.  To do some things, try the following:

  1. Open Google Drive in Safari or another Web Browser
  2. Open Slides in "Google Drive"
  3. Open Slides in CloudOn (linked to Google Drive) -- Issues, this will convert the Google Presentation to a Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation, not actually keep the slides in the Google Drive file format.

Notes on the CloudOn option...

  • Apps - Google Drive, CloudOn (linked to Google Drive)
  • This works like Microsoft PowerPoint, with "ribbon" buttons.
  • Things you can do:
    • insert slides - easy
    • type on slides - easy
    • align things - easy
    • change text color - tricky
    • insert shape - easy
    • resize shape - tricky
    • insert wordart - easy
    • resize wordart - tricky
    • change wordart colors - ???
    • insert image from Internet - ???
    • insert iPad image from camera roll - ???
    • rearrange slides - easy
    • play slideshow - easy
