Big changes are coming in the latest update to Google Sheets for Android, web and iOS. There are some nice formatting options that are coming to the app but probably the bigger news is that the Android app will have mouse support for the new breed of Chromebooks that run Android apps.
From a formatting perspective, Sheets will now have the ability to rotate text (this is found under Format>Text rotation) to make your spreadsheet cleaner and more visually appealing. For example, you could rotate column headers 90-degrees so that they are vertical instead of wide across the column top. This means you can make those columns more narrow. Add to that, finally, the ability to format numbers in Accounting style. This is one of those “why wasn’t it there before?” features but hey, it’s here now. Under Format>Number>Accounting, you can change your numbers into this format for easier and more consistent reports on budgets and other financial spreadsheets.
Rounding out the formatting updates are new border styles. There are several new border styles in the app that have various thicknesses and double borders. These are all found under Toolbar>Borders>Border styles.
The big changes though and probably the more exciting ones for most are the changes to the Android (and iOS app) app for Sheets.
