Needs to Grow Up 1/5
Very limited utility. Cursor hard to track/locate on slides being composed. But worst of all - cannot handle file locations other than an arcane set apparently blessed by Microsoft. For example, Google Drive not treated as a legitimate ‘place’ from which files can be loaded. When attempting to open/download files from Google Drive under the ‘More’ submenu, the files start to download, then consistently get the message ‘Sorry something went wrong, this file cannot be opened.’ Well these files open just fine from the desktop version of PowerPoint. Until the iOS app can handle all desktop files, it will be of very limited use.
Bugs Bugs Bugs 2/5
By Dr. Krane
1. On screen keyboard lag when typing in these notes section of a PowerPoint or when making a PowerPoint
2. No google drive synchronization they only added their Microsoft cloud service, and bunch of obscure 3rd party ones who we are supposed to trust with our files, horrible.
3. Large presentation files like 100MB+ will have huge lag while in “presentation” mode, I was doing a presentation on TelePrompTer and the lag was really annoying.
Typing delay makes it a hard application to use 2/5
The PowerPoint application has a decent interface and is simple enough to use, however it doesn’t run very smoothly. Typing is extremely delayed, to the point where the keyboard will still be auto-typing thirty seconds after I’ve touched the keyboard. I don’t have this problem with the other Microsoft Office applications I use, so it’s this app specifically.
Crashing/can’t even open 1/5
By Tana Banana
Just updated to newest version on IPad Pro. Worked last week with no issues, now the app crashes when it opens (doesn’t even make it 2 seconds in...). This needs to get fixed ASAP.
Apple Pencil inking glitch/fixed? 4/5
I’ve been having the same problem as Bad Cplx when trying to ink notes on this app using my Apple Pencil on the iPad. I am in a doctorate program and rely on downloading PowerPoint slides to write notes on (as opposed to printing 1,000 pages of PowerPoint slides), so you can imagine the frustration I, and others, have had trying to ink on slides while your pencil keeps trying to grab images, duplicate text boxes multiple times, duplicate inked text, and ultimately crash.
That being said, I’ve downloaded the recent update today and that issue seems to be taken care of, so thank you Microsoft for supporting us iPad users. I haven’t tested the app extensively since this recent update, but I have my fingers crossed that Microsoft support did their job. 4 stars for swiftly correcting the issue.
Great business tool. 5/5
Once again PowerPoint has proved to be a great business tool. Better now is mobile.
Sound issues 3/5
I like the app but when trying to watch a presentation that has a voice recorded I can’t hear the voice unless I have headphones or a Bluetooth spreader plugged in, I tried just hitting play and Turing up my phones volume but nothing happens, as soon as I attach my head phones boom sound
No voiceover capability 1/5
By Mark o24245
Can’t record your voice. Ugh.
Lock Items 3/5
Why have the draw tool if it just interferes with pictures in the back? You need to add a feature to lock pictures so they don’t constantly move when adding components or drawings to the slide. Otherwise ppt on the iPad has very few uses.
Need to fix 1/5
There is problem when using pencil to write on the slide, the slide is react wired and try to zoom in and out whatever on its. It is not compatible with the pen like before the update.
Draw function 1/5
This app use to work great, but since updating it I can barely use the draw function. When I try to draw notes on my slides with the Apple pen, it tries to move texts boxes around. It’s reeeeeeally aggravating! Please hurry up and fix!
Good luck saving your PowerPoints, and even if you do, good luck ever opening them again.
Cell PowerPoint 3/5
PowerPoint — for cell is Ok — but I don’t like the 2 tell me about preset slide sizes...
I prefer a dif slide size option — custom size works best for my needs
A little disappointing 4/5
I use my iPad to do all my school assignments. I have a PowerPoint I will be working on this semester with audio. The iPad version does not allow audio. I had to borrow a laptop to finish the first part of my PowerPoint and turn it in late after many suggestions and attempts to add video other ways. Lots of wasted time.
Upload problems to Dropbox 2/5
Does not automatically upload edited documents to Dropbox. Forever stuck in “upload pending.” Prompts to save a new copy. Why??? By the way, this is happening with all Microsoft apps on iPad. Please fix it. I know I’m not the only one having this problem, as I’ve seen others ask how to resolve this in the Microsoft user forum. The answer is always “delete and reinstall the apps” — that *does not* help.
I have ideas for animations …also…… 5/5
Please write a review and I’ll try to read it … y’all make a writers life so easy ;)
My Ideas for animations are ……
(Explode) - This takes a object or text and blows it up then the words fall !
2. (Black hole) - This one makes it look like you fell down a black hole and it also spins. Thanks so much. 😁😁
Drawing issue 3/5
I am now having issues where things I write with my Apple Pencil on one slide are being superimposed on another slide and becoming a jumbled mess of letters. I don’t know what to do to fix this, it’s making PowerPoint unusable for me I might have to find a different app
UPDATE: You guys fixed the issue above, so grateful!!...unfortunately now there is a new issue of resting my hand on the slides when I write particularly over a picture or table where the table starts to pop out and duplicate and do crazy things. :,(
Amazing app 5/5
I have been using this app for a while, I love it and it’s so easy to use.
One star 1/5
One star due to useless update summary.
Need the slide sorter 4/5
By Font too small
Critical for on the road last minute changes.
I love PPT. I create all my flyers here. WTG Microsoft
Apple Pencil functionality 2/5
The app is amazing for school but the Apple Pencil is less to be desired. I could be writing on the slide and the Apple Pencil and the app will think I’m trying to select the text box then will copy and paste the text box. This happens every time. Very frustrating.

Me gustaría que si por alguna razón se eliminara el archivo se guardara automáticamente
MAKE IT LEFT HAND FRIENDLY ALSO NEW UPDATE IS TERRIBLE 1/5
This is the only app I use for note taking on slides, my pen now is useless all it wants to do is take the stupid text copy paste it. I refuse to take notes while in slideshow present because that this is just terrible. On top of this horrific update my left hand always ends up hitting other slides, there should be an option to move the slide previews onto the right side. Time to find a new app that caters to my needs.
The last update about drag and drop 3/5
By Fatimam. M
It is so annoying when i want to write a notes or something else on the slides by my apple pencil, i want to write by my pen not move or copy anything.
Hope you fix it as soon as you can by putting a toggle button to select if i want to drag and drop or only writing.
i couldn’t writing notes in my lectures anymore :( how can i study now? Please!
Love it, please add Chromecast support 4/5
By Taino Prime
Useful and effective. Adding Chromecast support would really enable wireless presentations.
Does not work well with Google drive 1/5
By One boom
I have an iPad Pro 12.9 WiFi+ cell and was forced to subscribe to Microsoft 365 when I already have Office Home and Business 2016. Every time I try to open documents, mostly ppt, I have to save a copy and then try to work that copy. This gives me 2 documents and makes it confusing as to which document I am working on..
This is fun 5/5
Power point is really fun I made a book and my teacher liked it
Totally frustrating 1/5
The iPad version doesn’t type lowercase letters. I am very frustrated. 7$ for this crappy subscription is not what I bargained for
Good app! 4/5
By MCPE noob
It’s a rlly good app
How I love it 5/5
I really enjoyed power point and I think it’s pretty cool
App never works correctly 1/5
Every time i use this app it crashes or responds very slowly. Right now i can barely even type in the app. Very disappointed that microsoft cant seem to fix these problems.
So cool love the app❤️PowerPoint rocks
Poor Performance..! 1/5
Trying to work from from Ipad Pro on a critical project, and this program is constantly locking up, losing my work and I keep having to save different versions because the friggin thing just plan stops working! —And to top it all off.. I’m PAYING FOR THIS!!!!! Come on Microsoft!@
Useful Teaching Aid 5/5
I’m using Powerpoint mobile to record teaching screencasts and find it very useful. ONE SUGGESTION: Could you add different colored pens and highlighters directly to the quick access bar at the top in presentation mode? When I tap to change color, that appears on my screen. If it were simply in the bar at the top and didn’t drop down, then I could simply crop that part of the video before I post it. I’m guessing there are others who would be interested in a similar feature. Thanks!
Handwriting feature is smooooothe 5/5
不支持Google drive少一星 4/5
Bad for Iphone, great for iPad 3/5
By Good, but could be better
I downloaded first on my iPhone, but it difficult and most features were hard to work with. I downloaded it on the iPad and it was amazing. It has most of the features that the pc program, and it was more easily to work with. It does need more work and improvement for iPhones for sure.
Slow, deletes, and is annoying 2/5
It is slow, type without you pressing buttons, and deletes sometimes, also, you will spend hours getting it perfect just for it to crash and delete everything. PowerPoint PC is all you should use.
Won’t even start... 1/5
...would have expected it to at least finish loading. Wow.
Toggling through slides won’t work correctly 1/5
When I edit 1 slide and go to the next, the letter bleed on to the next slide and delete what I wrote on the original. Very annoying. This app is in need of a big update. No point in using the app if you can’t edit slides properly.
No functions 1/5
All I wanted to do was make an arrow a little thicker and there is a million options on formatting but not one to just make the weight a little thicker. Then, I want to make the picture fill a space exactly and the auto snapping either goes too small or too large with no obvious option to adjust the size. My parents had a small business and my job of 11 years has me making slide presentations regularly so I have been using PowerPoint for around 20 years weekly and this app is garbage. I should not have to buy a photo editor to add a line the thickness appropriate to my project.

Why do need a 365 subscription? 1/5
I used to be able to create and edit as many PowerPoints as I wanted on my old iPad Air 2 without a 365 subscription, so why do I need one now for my iPad Pro? It is ridiculous that I have to pay just to use an app that worked with an older device. You can take Apple Pencil support in exchange for a subscription, I do not care, but rendering the entire app as unusable? Unacceptable.
Pay rent forever 1/5
Firstly Keynote is 10 times better and you don't have to pay a penny. This and all of the 360 products are absolutely atrociously highly priced. In the old days you bought a software ones but this is a subscription service. There's absolutely no way I'm going to become a software junkie. Microsoft and other companies who are attempting to abuse the cloud service concept for eternal monthly subscriptions, means that this app would cost you tens of thousands of dollars throughout your life. You can take a running jump Microsoft
Payment on iPad Pro 10.5 inch? 2/5
Why is it that presentations can be made and edited on iPhone, iPad, and iPod for free, but it requires payment on iPad Pro 10.5 inch? I would settle for editing the presentations for free on iPad Pro, even if all the features aren’t available. I know that 10.1 in and above is considered a computer, but can there be a pass for 10.5 inch?
takes practices 4/5
great to have mobile work tools but functions and menus take some getting use too and the absence of charts templates is a real disappointment.
Excellent !! 5/5
PowerPoint life saver 5/5
Power point is a really excellent app to have you can make photos and you can write you can even change the size of the writing it so cool I really like the app because there is no app like power point power point is the best app ever❤️
Very nice and very educational! 5/5
I use this app in my studies and it is so nice!
