Best Google Drive/Docs app… but it desperately needs tabs and unfortuantely uses Safari
Love using this app. Very clean interface. Easy to use. The only thing keeping me from giving this 5 stars is the lack of tabbed browsing within the app. At work I have many Google Sheet docs open to cross reference data and build new data in others. Having a clutter of open windows makes the purpose of this app keeping me from using my web browser counter productive since I can keep all those Google Sheets open in separate tabs within a browser.
Please add tabs to allow us to open multiple google docs within the single app window without cluttering up my desktop. The other apps like this does not have this feature and I guarantee adding it will set this product apart from the others and insure more sales.
If you can add tabs, might I sugguest displaying the Google Doc type icon on the tab and if room the title of the doc. But I will be happy enough if it just had tabs.
Unfortunately the dealbreaker is the app uses Safari within it’s windows and if you are a heavy Google Sheets user like I am… Safari 10 and Google Sheets do not work well together and cause formulas to break - which the data I have to deal with day-to-day can hurt my job immensely if they go wrong. I hate to say it, but if this app is built to acclimate Google Docs then it should use Chrome’s open source framework to work with the docs.
I like it but ...
I like this app but it has one serious issue that makes it less than useful for me. If you close the app, you have to log back in every single time you use the app. That is a huge issue and makes it something that is seriously flawed. You can put a google drive link on your desktop or menu bar and achieve the same solution that doesnt require all the repeated logins.
Fix that one issue and it becomes awesome. Until then, save the money.
I’ve been using this app for quite a while now and it’s perfect to me. It does exactly what you want, doesn’t crash and makes it simple for me to get to everything— without having to be tied to a browser. Thoroughly enjoy being able to write on this app whenever and wherever! Thanks!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
