Google Slides for iOS
You can edit your presentations offline with Google Slides.

Until now, iPad and iPhone users have been poorly served by official apps for accessing their Google Drive-stored documents. Unlike its Android counterpart, Google Drive has always been a read-only option for viewing documents stored in the cloud, but all that has now changed.

Google Slides, along with its companion apps Google Sheets (spreadsheets) and Google Docs (word processing documents), allows you to not just access files stored on your Google Drive account for viewing, sharing or printing, but also edit existing word processing documents and even create them from scratch.

It even boasts built-in collaboration, allowing you to work on a document at the same time as a friend or colleague, and works with Microsoft PowerPoint files as well as its own proprietary formats.

There are some limitations – you can edit and format the text for example, plus add and manage slides using a series of templates, but you can’t do anything about any existing images, whether that’s resizing, cropping or even replacing them.

The app is also able to work offline with your documents too - to do this, you’ll need to open the document as normal, then tap the menu button before ticking "Keep on device" to download a copy. Once downloaded, your documents are accessed via the main menu under – wait for it – the "On device" section.

Google Slides is an intriguing prospect, and currently the simplest way to edit or create Google Drive-hosted presentations on your mobile, but the limited editing options do cripple it somewhat, leaving it some way short of rivalling rival products. Still, at least it’s free.

What's New in Version 1.2016.46204

* Access presentations that have been moved to the trash
* Bug fixes and performance improvements

Verdict:

Limited editing options make the Google Slides app less compelling than it might otherwise be. Something for a future version perhaps?

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.17

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.16.17

• Introducing WhatsApp video calling. With free video calls, you can have face-to-face chats with your friends and family around the world. Data charges may apply. (requires iOS 8+)
• Search for the perfect animated GIF, right from within WhatsApp. Just tap Attach — Photo/Video Library and tap on the GIF search button on the bottom left to get started.
