Google Docs, Sheets get iOS 9 split screen (finally)

From the Six Colors blog:

Today brought some great news. Updates to Google Docs and Google Sheets add split-view multitasking to those apps at last.

This is a big deal for iPad users. Now it’s possible to update a Google document or spreadsheet while also viewing Safari or using any other multitasking-capable app you can think of.

Yes! I am recently relying way more on Google Docs and Sheets to collaborate with my colleagues. I am also using my iPad increasingly more often as a work device. These two apps were previously the only two I used on a regular basis that could not be opened alongside another app on my giant iPad Pro's display. Now I can finally do something like, for example, plan a concert in Notes on one side of the screen while referencing my score inventory in Google Sheets on the other side.
