Apple Pencil 2/5
I use the word app daily. However, I am starting to use it less. My main reason for the app is to use the Apple Pencil, but it has been having some major problems recently. I have to go though a series of steps to get it to recognize the red pen after using the eraser. Then at other times the ink will not erase or it will jump all over the screen.
Great App 5/5
Love this app, it keeps up with all my writings and keeps them on all devices.
Can't Type 1/5
piece of garbage
Great app overall, but...... 3/5
Google Drive desperately needs to be added to the
‘Add a Place’ menu. I hope adding Drive is planned for a near future update. I don’t understand why it’s not there already. A response to this request would be nice.
Easy and accurate. 5/5
By On my a-game
I love how easy it is to use. Very efficient and effective. It keeps the images and the OCR is accurately on point!
Fundamentally Flawed - Virtually Useless 1/5
I am finding different insurmountable problems with saving documents and handling files. These issues seriously affect my ability to use Word for iPad. After creating a new document, any effort to save the document to any location other than OneDrive, e.g., Google Drive fails. The other recurring issue concerns attempts to create a new document based on an existing one. For example, after opening a document, I attempt to save it with a new name, and all such efforts fail. I will credit the app with doing a fair job of letting me edit documents created on my desktop. However, the above problems make it impossible to use Word for iPad in my workflow.
This needs an update unable to perform simple task
Major Bug Alert! 1/5
I have been using this app for quite some time and have found it very useful. But there is one major bug to be aware of! If you select all of the text in your document and want to change the font, then tap on the font list box to select your font... Naturally for me I start typing in the font list box to search for the font to use, my experience is it will overwrite all of your text. When you hit undo, it has nothing to undo. All of your work will be lost if you have auto save on. One way to get around it is to turn off auto save then discard any changes as you close your document but this doesn’t help if you have made important changes.
Word functionality on iPad is still extremely limited. One major concern is the inability to easily access and manipulate files stored on OneDrive. Word for iPad is also lacking important tools like the ability to work with complex outline structures or the ability to view documents in anything except for print layout (E.g. web view). If you make simple documents this is a great tool, but for complex document drafting like legal documents, you still need the full version of Word on a laptop.
Asking for a review from me every time I open an app guarantees a low rating. 1/5
By Trenton Albinny
Seriously, you are a massive corporation with a gigantic brand and yet you confront your users with this type of embarrassing plea, suggesting a level of pathetic organisational insecurity.
By Do something for this
It’s amazing. I am able to change the document and access it on different devices.
Subscription not recognized 1/5
When this app works it works well, but just recently it has stopped recognizing my subscription and then tells me to use another account or try free trial. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say they are trying to scam people for more money for making something not functional. And to add to this, it’s during finals week when I absolutely HAVE to get things done. Fix it or I’m out.
Can’t use the eraser tool 2/5
I use word on my iPad Pro to write on word documents and to practice and study for classes. Occasionally the eraser tool does not function so I can’t erase my writing. Please fix this
great app, very useful..loving it but the down side that they don't have symbol on this so i have to go my computer to do that
Add more 3/5
Plz add the the design and references on the mobile word app,be much
By Temple Musiq fan 81
Since updating to the latest version this app freezes when typing. I notice this when typing on my bluetooth keyboard. Please fix this.
It won't let me type 2/5
By BOSS DRIFTER
I tried typing but it won't let me
Great app but there is one concern I have 4/5
It’s a great app, however I do have some concerns, and one being that there is no method of proofing on this app. On pc versions, there is an option to set specific requirements for your text, and these options automatically catch errors (or what you’ve set the options to look for), but for the mobile app version, there is no such option available. I prefer to type my papers on iPad, because it’s much easier to carry around, and I use my iPad for literally everything, but I often find myself having to send a copy to my email to open it up on my pc (just to proofread and edit the document). This is annoying. Other than that, I love the app! I mean yes, the save option bugs out at times, but I save everything into my iCloud drop box anyways, so it doesn’t really hurt me.
Odd bug and Siri issues 3/5
Crashes fixed but has frequent issue with some text superimposed over other text. Have to exit and reopen.
The long-time issue of text not appearing properly or erasing after dictating with Siri still hasn't been fixed.
I wish those problems with get taken care of because it is otherwise nice having the availability of this app on the go.
The last time I posted a review, Microsoft contacted me via email which was nice but they left me no way to reply directly to them.
Happy Writer! 5/5
I love that I can write my reports from my phone and print from my phone. I can write reports while waiting for a dental appt. My thumbs are faster than ten fingers.
Signed, Happy Writer
Great stuff 5/5
Very useful, pretty intuitive
Great to use app 5/5

Having the Word app has given me the opportunity to save family recipe’s that could easily be lost in a natural disaster. Having Word also allows me the ability too share with others in the click of a button

El mejor para documentos
This is a wonderful app and we use it daily 5/5
By This Gods child
This is a wonderful app and we use it daily. I like it we can move documents between the computer and this iPad and my iPhone. How did we live without it.
Things seem to be running smoother since last update. Still wish there were seamless edges on the documents...does anyone understand what I’m saying? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills here! There didn’t used to be visible borders, I swear!
It does everything I want which is surprising for Microsoft product. Word and Excel operate seamlessly with the desktop and everything syncs with one drive. I wish I’d spent the time to transition to this year’s ago.
Trash app on iPad Pro 10.5 1/5
By Nessie the hamster
Didn’t save anything I drew on a docx that I’ve been working on for last 2 days
Luv it!!! 5/5
Such a great app!!!
It will be nice if when typing it would actually show what you have typed And not a blank page
Too many bugs! For some reason, it whenever I use the drawing tool or the pen tool, it makes whatever I draw disappear. Also, whenever I add an extra page, all it does is put a random page in the middle of whatever I’m doing, and I can’t delete it! I mainly got this app for the drawing function which I can’t do on my computer, but the drawing function is waaaaay too buggy to use. Guess I’ll be stuck drawing with a mouse vs stylus.
I love it 5/5
So Convenient! 5/5

Word not sending to messenger 3/5
By Matthew Villaroman
When I was trying to send a file to my friend in facebook it said “can’t connect to facebook”
Helps with Documents 5/5
I find that Word can be launched on iPhone and Android operating systems, and any device I own can have the same documents to study.
Fantastic as ever! 5/5
Just love love love the simplicity of Word; that’s so important when I’m harried and flustered. And, plus, even the little things with other apps—like with Apple’s pull-down feature on its keyboard—just seem to respond more smoothly. Smooth & simple...that’s Word to me.
I love it! 5/5
By Elise Cupp
Word is easy to use for school and it is extremely convenient!❤️
Don’t Bother 2/5
So not fully functional. I had figured out how to utilize icloud with it, but now will not allow me to save anything anywhere (even clicking other locations), but OneDrive. Basically all this limited functionality caused me to revert back to a laptop. Not very useful in my opinion.
Not like desktop version 4/5
By Taha saeed £
Why there are defects in iPad version not fully functional,, i hope to add all desktop functions like borders .
Word is the best 5/5

Word issues 2/5
By sd sociologist
Like a lot of this app but the interface needs work. I used to be able to double space and check work count easily, now it was changed and I can’t do either. #frustration
Latest updates creates bugs 2/5
For a while, the select tool in “draw”, one could select a drawn object and move it around the page. Oops! No more. It simply doesn’t work. More bugs showing up. I use word a lot in both iPad and Mac hr0ugh 360. I find it substandard, even to some of the word clones out there.
Paid for the monthly subscription but word won’t activate 1/5
Cannot get word to activate, tried all of the troubleshooting steps with no luck. Says “Your purchase was successful but we were unable to associate it with your Microsoft account”. I finally cancelled my subscription and removed all Microsoft apps from my devices.
Carry Files 5/5
Great App to carry files for reference with you
Love ... Love ... Love !
Great word processor 5/5
By Watchful One finds Love
I enjoy using the Microsoft 2016 WORD.
Que puedo decir. Como si tuviera mi laptop.
I can’t share my documents through “word” to my email.
Adding new pages 2/5
After saving, you can not add a new page. This is a bad thing, like most people we save a document to come back and add to latter. This is a major flaw in the app and I would hope Microsoft will fix very soon before I switch to another app.
