Problems Editing Google Docs on iPhone ltsgnu 5/1/12 9:21 AM
I started using Google Docs on my iPhone 4S in January 2012. I had no trouble editing my document in Safari mobile web. For several days, I have been having trouble editing. Specifically, when I make a mistake in my edits and delete it, the text reappears the next time I go to my document. Also, sometimes, when I press "return" on my keyboard, my keyboard disappears and I am taken back to the top of my Google Doc. How can this problem be resolved? Thank you.

I'm having the same issue. Edits I make aren't showing up, jibberish is in its place the next time I open the document. This has made Google Docs completely worthless on my iPhone. Any fixes out there?

When is this app going to be out? What will it be called? Will it be free? If the app isn't free, then I'm going to keep accessing my Google docs through the web, so I need them to work. In the meantime, I'd like to be able to fix this problem...

Hi all,

I've heard of this issue a few times, but haven't been successful in reproducing. Could you list the sequence of steps you take for this to happen? Also, if you could make a video (probably easiest if this happens each time, rather than sporadically) it would help me to look into this more. Finally, does this happen to all Google documents or just some, and if it's a select few, do they contain a lot of images, tables, or other special features that would differentiate them?

Thanks Papa Bear for jumping into this thread!

Cheers,
Ana

I haven't been having this problem for the past few days. I did describe the problem in my original post. If it starts happening again, I'll try to make a video of it. Thanks for trying to follow up.

I got this message in my e-mail, though I can't find it here in this forum:  You can find the Google Drive iOS app, for iOS 4.3+ devices, at the iTunes Apps store. This app is available only in English at this time.  



My reply is:

I actually can't find any app that is called "Google Drive iOS" or "Google Drive"

What is the name of this app?????????????

And, what is the cost? I am only interested in a free app. I'm not going to pay for something I should be getting for free.

Google's official Drive iOS 5.0+ app was released today per Google Employee Teresa's post at http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/drive/H_DOIna3WVY  

See my reply to Teresa's post about the release of Chrome for iPhone and iPad.
