Google Docs for iOS
You can edit your documents offline with Google Docs.

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 Docs, along with its companion apps Google Sheets (spreadsheets) and Google Slides (presentations), 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 Word files as well as its own proprietary formats.

There are some limitations – you can edit and format the text for example, 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 Docs is an intriguing prospect, and currently the simplest way to edit or create Google Drive-hosted text documents on your mobile. The inability to manage images is a minor irritant, but for making text edits or bashing out documents on the go, it's a good choice - particularly as it's free.

What's new in version 1.2019.22202?

- Bug fixes and performance improvements

Verdict:

Despite the editing limitations, Google Docs is a decent standalone tool for editing your Google Drive documents on the go - support for Word is welcome as is the ability to edit offline.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
