I'm not sure what happened--or what possessed me to try updating the Excel app again--but this time, I was able to edit and save files again, on iPhone, without an Office 365 subscription, so long as I had created an account and logged in. None of this was working back in April, so I wound up uninstalling Excel 2.x and reinstalled the latest version of 1.x (which I was glad I had saved).
From 5 stars to 1 (or 0)...
The ability to edit and save files without an Office 365 subscription was removed without warning, so now the app is useless to many of us. Previously, the subscription was only required for premium features, if I recall. Good thing there are other options for mobile spreadsheet software that can sync with Dropbox. Excel 2.0 for iOS heads to the trash bin. Sad.
Great app 5/5
Almost as good as having your laptop, but in your phone. I'm impressed.
Gets worse every update 1/5
I am using excel on iPad for a few years, the last few updates it makes it less usable for example this update you cannot scan in barcodes anymore it won't capture the full barcode or the barcode will get divided in 2 cells. Is there anyway to get a previous version of the app
Feature removal 5/5
You last update removed to many features that worked quite well! Not happy with the change at all on iPhone or smart phones.
Back to loving my app thank you!!!!!!
The best app 5/5
I use this thing everyday on every device I own. I love office!
Works well on iPhone 5/5
No problems and I can access/edit documents from my OneDrive account.
Does Not Allow Input 1/5
By Purple Rain 15
Edit: YET ANOTHER UPDATE, AND STILL BOT FIXING THE PROBLEM...WHY DOES THE KEYBOARD NOT COME UP IF THE CELL YOU ARE TOUCHING IS TOO SMALL...WHY DO I HAVE TO ZOOM IN FOR THERE TO BE A RESPONSE FROM THE KEYBOARD ??? IT
USED TO WIRK PROPERLY
Edit: THERE HAS NOW BEEN 2 UPDATES SINCE I HAVE BROUGHT UP THE ISSUE OF THE KEYBOARD, AND ITS STILL NOT WORKING !!! WHATS THE POINT OF FEEDBACK ?? ITS NOT LIKE WE ARE NOT PAYING FOR 365!!
Used to work great before update...Now when you try enter data, it does not bring up keyboard
Edit: The app only brings up the keyboard to input data, if you zoom into a cell
Not sure why the developers are responding to other complaints, but ignoring this problem ?
Edit: The keyboard does not come up on double tap, it only comes if the cell is a protected cell..It does come up in the formula bar...It has the same problem on both of my iphones, iPhone 6 and 7plus
Works as well as expected 4/5
Excel is a must on all of my devices. I use it for budgeting mostly now but before I retired it was part of almost all the reports I prepared, tracking labor hours, job completion, ..etc.
I can't believe how well it functions on my mobile devices. I review our budget when we are out shopping and needing to make a large purchase. I can pull up excel and my sheet in a flash! Great product, even with the hiccups it has every now and again. It's mostly a learning curve, when you get rid of the keyboard and mouse, when operating in a mobile environment.
It's a great app 4/5
By Isaac Marroquin
I use this app all the time for field inspection spreadsheets when I forget my laptop works very well.
Better off buying a cheap laptop 1/5
I'm not a fan of paying a subscription to Microsoft for the privilege of being able to edit documents on my iPad. No thanks Microsoft.
Useful in my work
Love it! 5/5
I love that I get to work from my phone on the go and then pick it up from home. It's easy to use; I've had no problems.
Love Excel! 5/5
By High Desert Al
I use Excel on a daily basis on my PC at work and am very happy to have it on my iPad & iPhone without having to have the 365 subscription (I do have that for my Windows laptop). Thanks for a great program!
SOOO thankful.. 5/5
I had been totally locked out of Google everything for 4 harrowing days! My health info, my business, my church lists and all personal info. Was thrilled to read excellent reviews about OneDrive .. and love using Excel and Word online. I feel 'safe' again that no one Co can hold my life 'hostage'!
Excellent move 5/5
Making Microsoft office available in app store was a really good move that will help millions of people.
Excellent adaption of desktop version 5/5
Once you get used to navigation, this is a great mobile tool. I use it to organize and keep track of monthly bills primarily.
I have worked with Excel for years and Logic prior to that, so consider myself fairly proficient. I loaded this App on my new iPadPro and cannot do anything! I am unable to get help on how to even get started! Anybody care to help an old lady?!
The best app ever!! 5/5
I love excel I do my spreadsheets on my iPad and then use them on my phone on the spot. It is so handy and reliable. Please use it.
By calm is best
Using this app is smooth as butter. It is seamless & easy to use and store on whatever cloud or device you wish.
Very useful, interface is really good for a mobile device; great to review data on the go and do light updates to spreadsheets and some formulas
Great tool when I can't get to my laptop 5/5
I use this app to complement the full version on my laptop. Synchs with DropBox. I rely on it everyday to handle quick updates, reviews, and budget analysis. Never had any issues with performance, sync, or access. Highly recommend it for anyone who uses Excel for business, home, or hobby.
Práctica y entendible 5/5
Es una aplicación que cuenta con configuración en español, entendible, ofrece amplia variedad de opciones a editar en tus documentos dentro de lo que puedes esperar en un dispositivo a un computador. Es fluida y carga muy rápido la información.

Great for quick mobile work.
Cannot Connect to Server 1/5
Worthless piece of junk. I cannot connect to server and access my OneDrive files no matter what I do. I also can't save things to my OneDrive account. How useless. I've tried: login to Microsoft account and log out, uninstall app and reinstall and have even done a complete factory reset of my iPad. Doesn't work. And I have an Office 365 subscription! What a waste of money.
Very helpful when combine with one drive 5/5
This sure helps with all of my worksheets from anywhere. Very nice app
General Superintendent 5/5
I am very happy with this app. It integrates well across devices and once I learned a few tricks for the iPad works well.
Great App 5/5

I think this is a great app. I have used Excel for a long time and I really like it
By Krido Odirk
Love it. I needed so I could use it on both PC and Mac and now I can. Thank y'all.
Great partner 5/5
I use Excel 2010 on my laptop and everything I do there can be duplicated now on my iPad Pro. I really like the ability to save files on the iPad as opposed to needing to save them on the cloud. Thanks.
The only spreadsheet I use.
Gets better with frequent updates and feature additions. 5/5
I have a 365 subscription and appreciate the frequent updates and feature additions.
Makes my job feel almost easy
Love this app for budgeting my income!!
Super helpful 5/5
By Rebecca In Richland
Great program, does everything we need for our busy practice scheduling.
5 Stars all the way! 5/5
I like all the improvements made and I am certain that more improvements are yet to come! Good work team! Keep it up...
No More Editing on iPad Pro 1/5
I have been using Microsoft office for many years. I have purchased many version upgrades for my PC and have enjoyed editing files on my iPad for many years as well. It seams recently that the ability to edit and save files has been taken away if you have an iPad Pro unless you pay extra for the Office 365 subscription which I would never do. I understand if you do not own office for Microsoft to charge for this app, but since I have it on my desktop I am very disappointed. I have deleted this app and will use Numbers from this point forward.
I love it! 5/5
By Carol Cahill
I love my Microsoft 365! I can access all of my OneDrive excel files and can work on them and/or send either as excel or PDF right from my phone! Makes my life so much easier!
Best for small biz on the go 5/5
One of the best app for any small biz on the go and stationed at the same time
Never loose track of the work
Excellent Application 5/5
Perfect App. Love it.
Excel free version 5/5
This version is awesome. I use it mostly during travel
Great app! Compliments well with Doc To Go App. Use it everyday using my Iphone6plus. I Highly recommend this app.
Why the difference between iPad Air and Pro?!?!? 1/5
I'm sooooo disappointed!!! I just traded in my iPad Air 2 for an iPad Pro (10.5), only to find out that now I have to pay to use Excel?!?!? Why??? Now, I'll have to deal with using Excel on my smaller phone screen?? What a sucky customer experience!
Very useful app
Lo mejor 5/5
Puedo abrirlo en mi iphone con la aplicación
Works well 5/5
I have not used this iOS version extensively yet, but so far it has worked well.
Have You Considered Using A Customer Panel/Study To Get. . . 2/5
. . . A Better Understanding of How "Un" User-Friendly You've Made This App? For some reason, it feels to me like the individuals who created the app had never used Excel before. A good metaphor would be like having Car Salesman designing and producing medical supplies. While using excel on my iPad is similar to using Excel on a desktop, Windows computer, if you this App was marketed under some other brand name, I'd have no idea it was supposed to be "Excel" Spreadsheets. It just doesn't have all the functionality of the Windows versions, and the tools are not the same. I could go through each tool and how it's similar and how it's different , but you'd have to pay me. I'd think you guys would have consulted with somebody on this, or had a customer panel at the very least. I still use the app for the most basic of things: to-do lists, calendars, basic budgeting. But I could never use it for the work I do. It just doesn't have the capabilities nor do I trust my data in the app for a minute. That's all I have for you guys.
Best ever! 5/5
Microsoft 365 is the best suite of products ever. Now with cloud storage and Microsoft Office, I can work anywhere, store and access my files anywhere. Just keeps getting better!
Excellent tool 5/5
