uploading files 1/5
just let us upload files from this app instead of having to download a second app just to upload. it all goes to google drive. if i make a document it goes to google drive. why can’t i upload from this app instead of having to get google drive as well?
Typical Google 1/5
When I select a cell in editing mode, why does that row get scrolled off the top of the screen? Does anyone care?
Cannot open links from safari into the sheets app 1/5
I’m told to “get the app” when I already have it and I want to just open my current page in the app.
Can’t use it. 1/5
I can create and view existing sheets, no problem. But when I need to fill in a new sheet or edit one? It is a no go. I will start typing and it will wipe the block out and the text options vanish. I can get it to come back by back out of the document but it will do it again next time I attempt to fill in a block or edit an existing text. I cant even figure out what it is trying to do. Either way, it is unusable at this time.
this app is frustrating and useless
Generally useful but lots of glitches in recent updates 3/5
Links to GoogleSheets provided by others open an option to download the app, but none to open in the app if already/once downloaded. Not able to access on my phone unless I copy paste the address and take a bunch of extra steps.
Amazing work 5/5
It’s alright…. 2/5
By Gabby The Beast
I use this app to edit schedules for work, but for some reason I could only do a few changes before it freezes and kicks me out. Then I have to exit out the app and launch it again and make a few changes again and the same thing happens again. This happens with the phone app and my tablet. Idk if it’s the fact that google sheets just isn’t meant for tablets/ phone apps. Idk what the purpose is of having an app that doesn’t function correctly. If this app is ever updated to where I can finally edit without it freezing and kicking me out, I will GLADLY update my review to a 5 stars!
Can’t line break within individual cell on iOS 1/5
Can’t use the normal shortcut to add a line break within an individual cell on the app. (cmd + enter for iOS which is alt+enter on Windows). Really need this function. App is lacking from desktop version. Please contact me if there’s a solution.
The glitches are horrible and my teacher makes me use this app again horrible
UI is weird, does not allow alphabetical characters randomly (only numbers) 2/5
Needs a “select all” button inside the cells so I don’t have press delete 100 times.
Often the UI for switching to text characters is gone and it’s impossible to type in anything besides numbers. Super annoying.
Very good app
Can’t login absolute trash 1/5
I went to login and was using my phone because who remembers their password anymore when your phone does it all unfortunately. Followed the steps to get the security code off my phone and it kept telling me it was wrong. Triple checked to make sure I had the right account, not the problem. Tried entering both codes different ways, not the problem. Even had our IT person try and they couldn’t get it to work. Since when did this app get so crappy? I’m telling them to just put Excel on it.
Unable to make simple edits 1/5
This app is very difficult. I am proficient in Excel and this is so very cumbersome and simply cannot do the things I need it to do.
Almost works right 3/5
If you leave your phone locked for more than a few minutes it closes the sheet you’re working on, so you have to go back and open it and find the correct sheet again. It gets old after a while.
Utter junk 2/5
Every single day this app doesn’t load and when it does it loads to a month ago and blank. I have to close the app and reopen it a minimum of 4-5 times every single day just to get a very easy part of my job done and here this app is the most difficult part. Its just as bad on my iPad now as my phone at loading- complete and utter junk. If I didn’t have to use this app I wouldn’t. Do better please! This is a newer iPhone and a brand new iPad Pro that I’m using this app on. Oi its frustrating!
No PDF options on App 3/5
By Zara Employee
Would love this so much if I was able to export as anything else besides an excel spreadsheet. Mostly making invoices and if I cant send as a PDF, it allows others to edit my file... not great when you’re talking about money. Not only that but sometimes I make revisions and export it, it doesn’t update the revisions made on the exported file... not sure what this glitch is, but I have sent so many wrong invoices... I’m overwhelmed with how hard it is to get an accurate product out of this app.
By chace is very lonely
I used it for Pokémon
Recent update 2/5
By katey q
The app worked well on my iPad until the most recent update. Now it no longer allows me resize rows, by finger or mouse control. Making the app almost pointless to use unless I don’t need that feature.
iPhone App Issues 2/5
It’d be just fine if I could actually share the doc with my collaborators and have them edit the file
Conditional Formating 1/5
By James murty
Conditional formatting is missing in iOS version of google sheets.
It’s present in Android though. Dev need to add this feature in iOS
There’s a lot to like, usually. But the glitches in the Google applications is really starting to get to me. I’ve already reported the ones from Google Docs, such as inserting double words. And now, a brand new spreadsheet I was working on, no longer exists. I’m so mad right now.
I was working on this thing for over 30 minutes, how the heck does it just disappear?? It should have saved as untitled document, until I named it. And if it got deleted, it should’ve been in trash. It exists nowhere!
Constantly CRASHES on iPhone 1/5
I use this with a group. All the iPhone users have it constantly and consistently crash within 20-30 seconds of opening a file. Android users have no problem. It used to work great for all of us but at some point that changed. I’ve contacted Google via the app and told them what’s happening and got no reply and no fix. Been this way for many months. If you’re not willing to make it work for iPhone then don’t offer it in the App Store. This is terrible and unacceptable Google.
Awful experience 1/5
This app functions fine if you’re only doing baseline functions, but as soon as you start using drop down lists and others, it freezes and struggles to display list options.
Sheets link not opening in sheets app. 2/5
Shared link opens in safari, it pops up a window to get the app, which is already installed.
Inside the app there’s no way to paste the link to open in that way either. Guess I’m sticking with the web version on mobile.
Incredibly frustrating and inconsistent 2/5
Search on the same keyword generates different numbers of hits on iOS vs iPadOS and the web app (I can provide examples if needed). Also, search in apostrophe fails for reasons unknown. Awful.
On my mother this joint fire bruh 5/5
On my mother this joint fire homes
Resizing Rows And Columns 2/5
Please allow “fit to data” and numeric values for resizing rows and columns.
Need a delete cell option on the app 3/5
I’ve searched everywhere on how to delete a cell for this app on iOS and can not find anything. Why doesn’t the app have the option to delete one single cell? Y’all need to fix that, I don’t want to have to sign on to a browser everytime I have to delete something from google sheets defeats the purpose of the app itself.
Horrible Compared to Android Counterpart 1/5
This app works so much better on Android.
Not mobile-friendly at all 1/5
I hate this app so much. I have been using it for more than two years, 2-3 hours a day to track my training, and it is always one of my largest headaches of the day. The offline mode is completely unreliable. I can be disconnected from wifi, using the app, lock my phone to do a set, unlock my phone, try to return to the app, and be unable to edit the worksheet I was just editing because I'm offline. 5 minutes later, it might magically work again. The selecting and editing tool, ugh. 4/5 times I edit a cell, I confirm the edit, then somehow the cell highlight gets dragged over additional cells and I have to make my edit again. This happens at least 2-3 times a training session depending on how closely I am tracking my session. Maybe this is a mobile memory limitation, but if I open 2 other apps, sheets completely loses which project I had open and which sheet. This is specifically annoying for my use case given I have separate sheets for each training week, which means they all look the same. When this happens, it's not unusual for me to forget to switch to the correct sheet after re-selecting my project, and update my session tracking numbers there. This means I often overwrite the wrong week, which means at least one week isn't accurate in tracking my program progress. Alternating between the alphabet keyboard and number keypad does not work. You can click the bubble to switch, but the keyboard will not switch until you've begun typing. I need to find another app, plainly. This app is not mobile-friendly on any account, and I find that for every operation I need to do in the app, there is something that makes it incredibly annoying with a high chance of having to redo it.
Poor functionality on iPad 1/5
By joey c 309
A major gripe is that recent updates to this app require that you tap a button prior to being able to edit a cell.
This alone makes the app difficult to use
Can’t open MS Excel password protected file 2/5
Unable to open my password protected file with google sheet. Before I installed Sheets I was able to open same password protected file with G Drive itself. But after installed G Sheets I can’t open the same files with G Sheets, and I’m not able to open with G Drive either.
So I have to decide to whether uninstall G Sheets to open my protected file to read it on the go, or keep it and be able to edit a few file eventually on the go but unable to read important protected files.
I guess better uninstall it.
So sad 1/5
This was such a great app, but Google had to get greedy. They want money for every little thing they use to offer at no charge. Instead of getting ads to pay they want users to pay, and are blocking your use bit by bit. I’ve pulled all my stuff and won’t use Google any more. There are other emails, calendars, and yes even other spreadsheet apps. Soon you to will only be a memory of the past Google. So so sad.
No new lines within cells 1/5
By bbb rian
The app is okay aside from this, but unfortunately this is an absolute necessity for some of my sheets.
The shortcut for newlines doesn't work (shift + return), and you can't even add them via dictation.
Unfortunately this holds true in the browser version of sheets as well so my use case doesn't work on ipad at all.
Edit Button is not necessary 2/5
What was the point of adding an edit button. lol hate having to press the pencil (edit) button when selecting a cell just to input a new value every time. It was an unnecessary update.
By Shading bid
The app is useful for the very basic things, but it's still missing a lot from what the website offers. I'm not trying to run big datasets from my phone, but I would at least like to be able to copy an existing spreadsheet into another one from my phone! What bothers me is that it's the smallest things that I need to do and would like to do from the convenience of my phone, but I can't because the app doesn't have it. The google sheets team should pay a little more attention to the app so that it can be as close to a copy of what the website is.
your pop ups in gmail for choosing the browser to open a sheet in not even mentioning Edge, but mentions others by name. Then when opened in edge, says its unsupported.
Is it unsupported because Microsoft managed to make Chromium great to use?
It’s a miracle 5/5
I have been using this for sometime now, It’s free and you can nearly do whatever you usually do with the data on spread sheets. Writing formulas is miraculously easy and it does what it says. I give 5 stars
Double click to Edit a cell - Slowing me down 2/5
There was a change in behavior in the iPad version where you must now double tap on a cell to edit it, or click the cell, then click the edit icon on the right. This DOUBLES (actually it's more than that due to unread taps forcing me to do it again) the number of clicks when editing a spreadsheet.
PLEASE PLEASE put this back the way it was - single click to edit a cell.
Can’t edit sheets 4/5
Latest update doesn’t support my iOS 12.5.4. on the iPad Air as of July 2021
The Best 5/5
By Abdul Hakam
The success formula is, the best thing is not selling the software for money but to provide the ecosystem. Google and Apple are doing that first and making the money later...
Where is the help? 1/5
Downloaded this app thinking that I would be able to use it on my phone. Unfortunately, the functionality appears to be really minimal — either that or the help function is useless. I’m a very savvy spreadsheet user, but I cannot find how to perform even the barest actions - like converting a cell from its formula to the formula value. The phone menu seems to be focused more on look than underlying function. This makes me sad.
Best spreadsheet app but not saying much 3/5
By Suire Sr.
It’s a beautiful app but it’s essentially useless if you can bulk upload data to an existing sheet with formulas. I’m not even asking to be able to format complex formulas on the iPad, but not being able to do a data dump to a premade sheet is a major, ongoing oversight. If you need to make a shopping list from scratch, this is your app. If you are a professional or businessperson, carry your laptop with you.
Keeps crashing 3/5
App would be great if it stops crashing
Inexplicably bad 1/5
Has like 1/8 of the features of regular sheets. If you are using ipad, you cant log in on chrome if you have the app - it auto redirects you to the app. So good luck making a pivot table
Nota 11 din 10 5/5
By Siscanu Sergiu
Foarte comod, imi place enorm sa lucrez cu aplicatia asta, nu se compara cu nici una alta, simplu si extrem de nativ! 11 din 10
Annoying Update 2/5
Google updated its app to make it so I have to click edit every time I want to enter a box, added a ton of time to my workload..
