Google Introduces iPhone X Support for Docs, Sheets, and Slides iOS Apps

Google today updated its collection of productivity apps for iOS with support for the iPhone X, so now anyone who uses Google Docs [Direct Link], Google Sheets [Direct Link], and Google Slides [Direct Link] on Apple's newest smartphone will see full compatibility for the iPhone X's 5.8-inch screen.


Additionally, the same update has introduced drag-and-drop support for all three apps on compatible iPads. This way, users can easily drag and drop content from other apps right into Docs, Sheets, and Slides using multitasking on iPad. The release notes for each app's version 1.2017.46204 update reads as follows:
- iOS 11 and iPhone X support
- In iOS 11, easily drag and drop content from other apps into Slides
- Bug fixes and performance improvements
While Google has now introduced iPhone X support into its productivity apps, it still has yet to roll out compatibility for the iPhone X's screen size with some of its more popular apps, including Google Maps and Gmail. Many other apps were ready with iPhone X updates prior to the smartphone's launch on November 3, and the list is now growing as more developers update their apps following the iPhone X's debut.

If they rush it, and release it at the same time as the iPhone X launch but with bugs, people complain. If they take their time, and release it a few weeks after the iPhone X launch, but without bugs, people complain. Just be glad you got a free update to a free app to use a free service.

twitter, tweetbot, facebook, instagram (and many others) released on launch day without bugs

it can be done, you know

What I honestly don't get is why it takes so long to do something like this. They've had the development tools for a while haven't they?
