Brand new update has lots of bugs and very slow 1/5
You click on a topic and literally 3 seconds later it switches. Or if you click on something and it doesn't for what you want and them you click on something else it crashes the entire app. This has happened multiple times in the less than 5 minutes of using it
Doesn't understand anything 1/5
I talk and no matter what I say it shows what I said at the bottom but the only answer I get is "sorry I didn't catch that" not even the suggestions
Great app getting better 5/5
Love getting reminders about things I mentioned in email. Great app!
Microsoft iOS apps pale in comparison to Windows Mobile 2/5
I truly enjoy using Windows Mobile, but unfortunately, Microsoft (Nadella) has decided to kill it off.
I've been using Cortana on an iPad for over 6 months, as an intermediary between my Microsoft phone and my PC. Today, I opened Cortana to find that the last update changed things quite a bit, and the reminders functionality on Cortana no longer works the way it used to - it takes two more steps now to add a reminder. I know this doesn't sound like much, but when it used to "just work" and now requires multiple steps to work, that is a failing product.
Satya Nadella has ruined Microsoft beyond repair. I no longer enjoy their products, and it's getting worse every day.
Useless if it can’t connect to my Microsoft account. 1/5
I pay for a Business Office365 account which has Cortana connectivity enabled in the account settings, yet I can not log in with my work account. This makes the app useless Microsoft, how can you possibly promote Cortana as a digital assistant if it can not connect to your own paid hosted services.
Best assistant 5/5
I use a Windows phone as daily driver. I was issued an iPhone for work and installed Cortana. The functionality is a bit limited but Cortana is superior to Siri in every way.
Siri lost 5/5
Cortana is SO MUCH BETTER than Siri. Microsoft is definitely on top with this one ! 😍
Cortana rocks!!! 5/5
Great that works so much better than other voice operated apps... I love it
“Sorry, I didn’t catch that” 1/5
No matter what I ask, the thing spins for about 5-7 seconds and returns, “Sorry, I didn’t catch that.” Tried navigation and “Sorry, something went wrong.” I’ll stick with “Ok, Google”.
Stop asking to add the widget! 2/5
I have zero intent on using the Cortana widget.....ever. Stop asking EVERY time I open the app. Eventually I'm gonna just remove it.
pretty helpful ish 4/5
wish i could make it more personal
Cortana is the best 5/5
She sings she tells bed time story. You can even say what does the fox say. She the best
Wish this would completely replace Siri 5/5

After 12 years of using Windows based Pocket PCs and phones, I finally bought an iPhone. Week after week apps continued to disappear and the mobile websites did not have all the same functionality. I have installed Cortana on my iPhone and was hoping to still be able to see my text messages on my Windows Surface in the Action Center, but it doesn’t work. Please add this functionality. And please hurry up and release the Surface Phone so I can go back to what I once loved.
Doesn't hear me on iPhone 7 1/5
Granted access to the microphone, but the app cannot hear me at all when I tap the mic icon. Pretty useless to me. Disappointing because Cortana is the best virtual assistant in my opinion for my needs.
By Carl majors
Good so far with reminders
Finally we get the app
Very nice assistant 5/5
I loved Cortana on my Windows Phone. Happy she is here.
Was excited to try… 1/5
And quickly disappointed. After the initial set up to my MS Account, my first question to Cortana “What’s my schedule today?” Answer - “You don’t have anything scheduled for today.” What??
Oh, so I have to add my calendar. I use Outlook, and it’s tied to my MS Account but whatever, so I go to add the calendar however it’s the iOS calendar - huh???
So, I need to have two instances of a calendar working? This makes little sense to me when I have signed into Cortana and Outlook using the same MS Account.
I would have thought that both these apps being out for a while would integrate better than its current state. If Windows Mobile weren’t in its current state, I would be enjoying the Cortana/Outlook integration. As for this iOS, MS please have a deeper look.
Useless as a professional assistant 1/5
I downloaded Cortana as another way to stay abreast of my work Exchange account but Microsoft won't let users sign with Microsoft Exchange credentials. It forces you to set up a personal account which will not link with the Exchange account so as a professional personal assistant it's useless.
Love this app!
Stay connected 5/5
I love the Cortana app because I have a windows 10 laptop and when I leave it at home with the reminders it’ll remind me where I am with my iPhone. Who says windows can’t go well with apple? It’s awesome
Impressive learning 4/5
Haven't used it for long but it found my area for weather, favorite sports teams and traffic quickly. So far so good.
By Brian Arthur
Very responsive, works better than Siri on voice recognition.
Very good😃 5/5
It's the best.
Cortana app 5/5
I like this app. It is very reliable when you want to check if Cortana have heard you correctly. That way, you will be able to report your concern or problem. The app is also user-friendly; It isn't hard to navigate.
Limited Visibility 3/5
Cortana doesn't see all my calendars. Not good.
Works better than siri 5/5
Just switched to iPhone. I used cortana instead of Google because it worked better and same on iPhone with Siri. Siri may have more integration between the software and the phone, but cortana just seems to be a better choice.
something wrong 2/5
This keeps saying "sorry, can't connect right now"
Works as subscribed.
Tries to do too much 2/5
It gives me 4-5 notifications per day, and I can't turn them off individually. So in order to get the notifications I want, I have to also get a litany of notifications I don't want.
Cortana provides value 5/5
Great features and sometimes one step ahead of me when setting reminders for events mentioned in email. Like a good assistant should be!
Works on all devices 5/5
Great app that functions well
Has great potential 5/5
By Domus Dolor
It's a bit of a hassle to set up but well worth the time to plug in all the info cause now I get updates on things I'm actually interested in. She's very helpful and has replaced Siri for me. Plus being a big Halo fan I just love the name haha. In all seriousness I love where this app is going and look forward to future updates.
Way better than Siri 5/5
Cortana understands me the first time I say things and nearly always provides the right information. I also love that all of the alerts I set up on my PC carried over. Thanks, Cortana!
Good app when figured out.
By Just because!
Easy to use and useful 5/5
I like having a quick view of my Office 365 calendar and setting reminders.
I just started using the Cortana app, but I have had no problems what so ever. It has been great
Has potential to be the best 4/5
First thing I want to say is, this is a very intuitive app. I like interface. There are a few improvements that could be made. When you search for the hours a place is open, can you fix cortana's answer? Yesterday I got open 9 AM - 10 AM when it was actually 10 PM.
Next thing, hyper links in home screen feed that take you to more info about a team or event would make this a primary app for me
Love it 5/5
Love the jokes
Awesome app 4/5
Loved using Cortana on Windows phone (before mine recently crashed on me) and moved to iPhone (still sad about it). I understand how to use the feature, but will take time on another OS to get more familiar with. Surely updates will be available in the future to make it more intuitive.
Love it 5/5
Now I'm never late or never forget to nice.💯
Never works. 1/5
Even if you type something in, it says I didn't catch that and doesn't work.
Just started 4/5
I've only been using this app for a few weeks now. This app is also connected to my Surface Pro 3 and is able to sync up with it. It's great for making a quick alarm or adding a meeting. But she doesn't do anything like "tell me a joke".
Used to work... 3/5
Now it never loads anything, though it used to be good. This started about 3 versions ago.
Excellent App 5/5
I love this App
Frequent user 4/5
I have three phones. Apple, Android and a windows. Cortana has been very good. Google assistant has been exceptional and intuitive. Cortana is a close second if not just as good
Works if you work with it 5/5
Good app with many cool features. Takes some time to get setup correctly but worth the hassle.
