Not offline files? 3/5
I have the pro12.9 so happy. Then there is not WiFi in the building of the presentation. But I did my work at home, then I open and nothing. Can you imagine my frustration.
Are you planing to do some thing like pages, where you have online and offline. Or I missing something
By Base news critic
I love this app. But with the new update they left out select all copy.
Waste of time 1/5
I thought that i was going to be able to use this app to do work, unfortunately i need to have a office 365 account to edit or save documents. I think Microsoft should at least offer free editing and saving on the app.
Text to Speech 1/5
By Lemon Variable
Microsoft recently updated the app and removed many features that I found useful daily. I’m a grad student and used the text to speech function built in to this app almost daily while reading material for class. It was really helpful in understanding material and made reading more efficient for me. For some unknown reason, they removed this feature as well as other helpful features on this app and took away a lot from the great experience they had on the ipad. I hope that Microsoft brings them back. For the moment, I’ll be looking for another app the fill this void.
Some Hangups! 3/5
The "New Comment" feature cannot be undone if clicked by accident and saved before noticing that it was pressed. Please fix this. I have tried everything to remove the comment altogether. Also please do not continue to place the "New Comment" link or function directly next to the "paste" function because it can easily be clicked by accident when trying to quickly click the paste function. Please fix. Thanks.
Amazing! Nothing wrong with it. I definitely recommend this
Svampur Sveinsson 1/5
By Huginn Evuson
Þegar allir fiskar úr bikiníbotum hverfa, ganga svampur, pétur og vinir þeirra í liði með sökkva spæjason og félaga hann doktor spóa til að komast upp á yfirborðið og bjarga öllum fiskunum frá sjóræningjum sem hata þessar persónur.
Very convenient and useful 5/5
By Majid Heydari
I really enjoy working with such a wonderful software
Tons of bugs and where is formatting changes? Im logged into my 365 and have done the reset and delete login and resigned back in. I don't even have the option to change format, cant double space.
iPad Pro 10.5 and everything changes 2/5
By Ladie Zee
Why are my files not the same from my PC to my IPad Pro 10.5? I created a document on my PC in outline format and half of my information is missing when I open the document Word on my iPad AND I’m using OneDrive. 😡
Word App 5/5
By A. James Bennett
This App is fantastic, especially if you do a lot of writing. You can link multiple accounts and have documents from all devices. Very convenient, easy to use, and incredibly useful. Love having the ability to do projects and spontaneous writing on the go.
printing variations 1/5
I prefer using half sheet paper, but when I print. the top margin is extremely broad regardless of how narrow I put the margin. I took a picture of this as proof, but I cannot paste it in the email via iPhone.
Lacks View Navigation Pane feature 3/5
Win and Mac desktop versions of the app have an option to view the headings in a navigation pane. This is necessary to navigate large documents. Nearly impossible on an iPad.
“Word Up” 5/5
Always keeping a step above the rest!
Mobile View Disappeared? 2/5
Mobile view on Microsoft Word has been a godsend on my iPad mini 4 and so I was devastated when I opened it today to discover that it’s missing.
Please return it as quickly as you can, developers! It made using Word on a smaller screen much more accessible and streamlined.
Some tools have disappeared with the latest update 2/5
Learning tools, print layout, and mobile view have disappeared from the iPad version with the latest updated. Makes it frustrating to work in split view.
Works great! 5/5
By Shawn Desai
As usual Microsoft eventually gets it and delivers. It is really great to use office apps on iPhone. I have been using mostly word and excel. Now they integrate well with one drive on iPhone. This was essential for me as I can have all my docs in one place and use them across apple and Microsoft platforms, a key to productivity. Way to go . . .
App Is Buggier Than Ever 1/5
It was functioning as it normally would until I updated and that’s when things went haywire. I was not able to use the web layout option(it would react to being pressed but otherwise nothing happened). My document would remain zoomed out which is problem since I don’t have the best eyesight. The worst offender is this weird glitch where the screen 'splits' when you turn your phone horizontally where you can try and use one 'half' of the screen. These bugs need to be fixed as it made trying to use this app impossible. I would normally rate it at 3.5/5 when its functional despite missing a lot of key features on phones but as of now, these recent glitches lowered it to 1/5.
Printing and emailing large file 1/5
Large file with pictures. 20mg Cannot get it to email or print!!!
Installed Fonts No Longer Work 1/5
Fonts installed with AnyFont used to display fine. Now I get the following message: “There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font.” Files with installed fonts will not open. I tried it on my iPad and iPhone 7+.
Once again, there is a new version with the same problem. I’ll uninstall it and try it again later. Not planning to renew Office 365 until it’s fixed.
Good app 5/5
It’s saved me on a lot of assignments in school.
Don’t even try it/ You will be a bug test for MS 1/5
I am so disappointed in the payment I made for this app. It is just awful. You can’t do so many things without standing on your head, and others you just can’t do. I can not remove borders from tables.
MS has a lot of nerve using us as bug testers.
So far I really enjoy this application
VoiceOver Documents 5/5
By Mrs. Weems (VoiceOver Artist)
Using Word allows me to create price sheets, testimonial statements, business plans and proposals all on the go.
Love this App 5/5
I spend many hours a day using this app.
I am a writer. Having this on my iPhone 8 has enabled me to continue my writing projects anytime anywhere. I find that I use this Word App more than the actual program. I am constantly away from my computer, so this has been an incredible and powerful tool for me. I use OneDrive to store files between my phone, iPad, and computer, so I am always using the most up to date of my files.
Can't find old feature 3/5
There used to be a feature that allowed you to add a first line indent on a paragraph in previous versions. That option does not seem to be available anymore even when I use the search function to look for that tool. Its been inconvenient to type reports without this feature since the last update.
Cannot sign in 4/5
I cannot sign into my account from the app 😒
Version 2.10 3/5
By S payne
After this update the “hide keyboard “ function is not working as it should-it’s not active initially and you have to do some gyrations before it activates
Not Fully Functional, Even with Office 365 Supscription 1/5
This is a very basic app for limited use of creating Word documents. No grammar check. No easy way to format page or paragraph. Saving these documents has by far been my biggest problem. No matter what I use: iCloud, Google Drive, OneDrive or the actual iPad, it takes too long for the document to save correctly. You can tell when there is no actual time stamp on the document. I notice this once I am ready to upload the document as an attachment to email, within an online class forum, to a job application or any other institution that may require me to upload or attach the document. Always says there’s not data in the file and therefore cannot be attached. Hours later, it magically saves and becomes a real document with data. This is with a strong internet connection be it using cellular data from the device or wi-fi, it doesn’t matter, it is always a pain. I thought I would be able to do more but this app is so basic, I may as well just use Google docs.
Works well enough 4/5
By Carlov Lluviani
Works really well, not as good as the PC version obviously but if you can set it up on a PC then write on the go works fairly well.
Review on the Word 4/5
By woody 3815
Being that I’m an old timer that’s trying to catch-up with the rest of the world I’m trying to learn Word. I would appreciate it if it were a little easier. I’m not stupid but I get a little confused doing Word.
No longer works with Dropbox? 1/5
Just updated to this newest version. When I opened it up, my Dropbox account was removed and will no longer let me sign in. It's truly amazing how something as trivial is this has been screwed. Microsoft Word is now more useless than ever.
Saved my grade so many times 5/5
So glad I have this on the go. As a junior in college, I am grateful to have access to Word at my fingertips! My laptop is currently broken so this is a blessing! Thank you 🙏🏿
Great way to have easy access to all your files between your laptop and cell phone.
Differences between IPad and Desktop 3/5
The features that do exist work well. However, there are several features available in the desktop version of Microsoft Word that are not available in the iPad app or are not easily accessible. These features include but are not limited to:
1) the navigation pane
2) being able to save imbedded images as un-imbedded image files.
3) several add-ins are not yet available for the iPad including add-ins for citation software like Mendeley
Really good but one ☝️ problem 5/5
Every time I go to another app or close Word my whole writing deletes
Good for most things 4/5
Update 2/18, I really like the new feature that lets me view documents in mobile mode, fitted to the screen. Much more handy, as I can now use it on my iPhone.
I use this app a lot, the free version, and it’s good for most things. The full version can do more, but it’s prohibitively expensive. Still, all things considered, a good app. Wish they’d offer a better deal on the full version.
Not full tool to use 2/5
The app is not in full function to use. Not that much convenient.
Cannot recommend for science/math students note taking with Apple Pencil 2/5
When writing equations and math symbols, there is some sort of movement that occurs after writing that moves the stroke from where I put it. So frustrating trying to write equations or mathematical symbols. Cannot recommend for anything critical. Okay for simply taking notes, hence the 2 stars.
I’ve not found a way to turn this jump feature off if there is one. If there is, I will gladly change my review.
By ethan monkey
Best for homework on the go
I TRY to use this app on my iPad for school. Currently doing my English class essay and I need to jump around a lot, but when I need to write something down this app takes FOREVER to open up. Hate it. If I wasn’t in such a bind, I would stop using it.
Word on my phone can’t get any better! Great app
Microsoft Word 5/5
This is an excellent tool for creating word documents on your iPhone. You can copy and paste or create a new document.
Love it but I wish ... 4/5
I do love this app however, with recent updates I have found it difficult to type. For example, I'll be typing something and just as I space to continue I find myself somewhere else in my document completely, or I'll change the font for the entire document but half of the document still remains in the default font. I don't really have much problems with this app but I think that is because I do not use it as frequently as others may.
Life saver 5/5
I do not own a laptop or home computer.. this app lets me do my homework for college by speaking into the microphone
Justificado y teclado 2/5
1) No me permite justificar el margen del documento. Sólo me deja ponerlo hacia la derecha, a la izquierda o centrarlo, pero no justificarlo.
2) No pude escribir este mensaje usando el Smart Keyboard del IPad Pro, tuve que desconectarlo y usar el teclado virtual la pantalla.
Do not like 1/5
I do not like that I have to subscribe to the suite of products to use. I liked it when you just bought the product once and had unlimited access to it. This is why I’m an Apple User.
