Google Docs on the iPad

My school district uses Google Docs but I haven't really tried it out on the iPad yet as I still automatically turn to my laptop for tasks like word-processing or creating spreadsheets. I was very happy to discover that John over at The Electric Educator has written a helpful comparison of the mobile versus the desktop versions of Google docs.

The mobile version of Google apps apparently comes up short in many areas - it doesn't allow you to insert tables or images into a word-processing document for example. However, Google Docs is very much still evolving and this may change over time. John encourages you to add notes and comments to his spreadsheet.
