Google announced earlier today that desktop version their popular Google Docs editor is now accessible on the iPad.
The new mobile editor is fast and lightweight, but sometimes you want to make more style edits like changing a font, or center aligning a paragraph. If you’re on an iPad, you can do that by visiting the Desktop version of the document editor.
If you want to insert formulas in a Google spreadsheet from your iPad, you can use the same trick. Just click Go to spreadsheet view at the top of the mobile view to try out the full version of Google spreadsheets. You can now insert formulas in from the editable formula bar.
As good as it sounds though for hardcore users, desktop mode on the iPad isn’t nearly as easy to use compared to its mobile editing counterpart, which was introduced earlier last month. At the moment, it seems a bit buggy and slow to do most tasks, and as such, should probably be saved for times when you need to visually tweak your Spreadsheet docs with colors and formatting.[Google Docs Blog via 9to5mac]
