Crashes more than a herion addict 1/5
Google needs to get their act together on their software and spend less time playing politics. This thing crashes more than a heroin addict. Almost unusable in the iPhone. Editing is stupid with an icon you have to press first. Is that just a change for change sake ie. no real purpose for making things better for the user.
yesterday’s update fixed almost everything that the previous one broke. The only problem remaining is that it will not let me enter stuff into fields if the caps lock button is pressed. Since almost everything I enter is capital letters it is a bit of an inconvenience but definitely better than the last update. Thank you!
It’s ight 3/5
I don’t see why it can’t be just as functional as the web version, which I end up using on my iPad—but it’s a bit frustrating that it typically forces me to use the App. Hopefully this isn’t for long and the app becomes full fledged in functionality
PLEASE BRING BACK DOUBLE-TAP TO EDIT!!! 4/5
I love sheets and depend on it a lot but the recent change to remove double-tap to edit on a cell (with a value in it) IS INFURIATING!
We now have to hunt for a tiny pencil/edit icon all the way on the right of the cell details div/pane/whatever. It's horrible in practice!
it's astonishing that no Google Sheets UI/UX person spoke out or noticed this degraded usability. It was so convenient for editing before and now it's horrible.
In fact I've just uninstalled the app and am using desktop mode sheets in Safari to avoid this horrible UX blunder 🙁
Crashes all the time 1/5
Whenever I open the sheet that has been updated and different computer crashes without fail. It would be updated right now but this is been happening for a while.
Poor usability 1/5
Typical Google making poor usability updates to its products. This time they’ve added a pencil icon that has to be tapped to edit the text in a cell. Why? It was much easier when you could tap anywhere to edit the text. They’ve also remove the X button on notes to quickly clear the note. Stupid, unnecessary updates and just a total lack of care for usability.
Edit button? 3/5
Not even an option to turn off that dreaded edit button?
Two Gripes.. 3/5
Great app, but..
1. I don’t like the new button you have to tap before you can start typing in a new cell. Previously, you could go to a new cell and just start typing. Not anymore.. well, you could, and I do it all the time, but, your time will be wasted because you didn’t tap the new edit button that is now a required step every time you go to a new cell.
2. The app reloads just about every time I come back to it. This may be a RAM management issue with the phone but I am using the 12 pro max and this is the only app this happens with in my experience. This wouldn’t normally be a big deal for me but it slows me down when I have to wait for it to reload, tap the sheet I was working in, and find my place within that sheet. This, all while I’m working against the clock, and trying to enter information as we go along. I would use something else but my customer uses this for their documentation.
Remove the edit button 1/5
Who’s brilliant idea was it to make it harder to enter data? I used to add my data quickly and efficiently now I have to hit edit for every row. Completely unusable garbage now!
Terrible iPad Magic Keyboard Support 2/5
Pretty much unusable for anything other than viewing spreadsheets.
Missing features that mobile site can do, like filter/sort 3/5
I wish the app supported filters (even if just activating existing filters that exist in the document, or choosing which column to sort by. It can be a hassle to get the sheet to open in the browser in order to be able to use this functionality.
On iPad 3/5
There really isn’t keyboard support on iPad. Your mouse really only acts like a finger. There might be keyboard short it’s though. This could be an amazing app with mouse support.
One star for having to click the edit button or to double-click a cell to edit
Crash crash crash! 1/5
Pretty good ❤️ 5/5
By Savanah G.
It’s really good, I use it for school and assignments. It works really well and doesn’t glitch. I like that it works offline so I could be in the car or at school and use it. You should download it you won’t regret it.
Annoying I have to even install this because I’m just going to delete it right after 1/5
By Ethan Dickie
Let people edit in the linked website version on mobile. This app isn’t going to last more than a minute on my phone and is just a time sink for no reason for myself.
Has issues 2/5
Text not wrapping. Can’t resize the width of fixed columns. Formulas are super buggy; sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. They also take forever to update when you update a cell. Random rows of duplicate content show up. This app is very 2003 and needs a lot of work.
Constantly crashes on my iPhone 1/5
I can usually type about 3 letters or numbers before it crashes. Drives me completely crazy!!
Edit button 2/5
App was great before you added the edit button. It takes too long to make changes now.
remove edit button! 1/5
echoing other reviews, past versions of the app allowed you to just start entering data into a cell by simply starting to type. a recent performance “improvement” in one of the most recent app updates now requires one hits the edit button before being able to input anything into, creating an additional step and making the app less functional.
please remove this functionality or at least add a setting to disable it!
Missing important feature 2/5
By The Wise Reviewer
I searched online and it seems like currently it is IMPOSSIBLE to select multiple individual cells in the mobile version.
I gave it two starts but will update it to five once this feature is added, because it is a really important one and not that complicated to implement.
Great Spreadsheet ! 5/5
Best iPhone spreadsheet I have ever found on the App Store. It has all the functionality that I needed to maintain all my basic business info. Thank you.
Must changes!!! 3/5
The app is okay but if the interface was more as it is on the computer it would be amazing!!!
App not working 1/5
i would be in the app doing stuff and it would randomly close for no reason
Not user friendly 1/5
By Duke rockhopper
Having to touch the edit icon to type in every cell when using a keypad makes it very time consuming. The app is virtually useless on an iPad with a keypad. The update is horrible.
Unusable on iPad 1/5
With a bluetooth keyboard, I cannot enter numbers into cells without first having typed a letter. Problem started with the recent update. The app is functionally unusable.
New version problem 3/5
By Chessmaster One
That extra tap for editing a cell is super annoying. Get rid of it
Version 1.2021.0624 needs fixing 2/5
I use this app regularly. Since the update, I can no longer copy/cut cell contents. And when I select a cell, it randomly decides if I can enter text or numbers. When it's in the number function, I have no way to change it to a text keyboard.
The last update made it slow and glitchy 1/5
The app doesn’t respond well to switching between cells or between text and numbers. I have to tap the cell 5-10 times before it will allow me to type in the cell. I use this for my workout log so these glitches are a pain. Please fix.
App is crashing.
Update: still love it...but I miss the one tap edit. Now I have to click on an edit button to edit a cell. Seems to have lost its responsiveness. Great app! I have used google docs for 8 years to manage my personal budget. I love the fact that I can access it from my computer, iPhone and iPad! Recommend!!
Very handy but going backwards in development 2/5
By Big ****
It was very easy to use, now with the last update they now have added another button that allows you to unlock a cell before you can add to it, you can’t skip this step, the only reason you would click on an empty cell is to add to it. But here we are unlocking it before we type.
Click to edit is a horrible idea 1/5
Instantly a deal breaker.
Amazing, use it all the time, also I’m vehemently annoyed 1/5
Fly out menus require multiple openings or a ridiculously long waiting period if there was a recent edit.
Update: March 2021
Haven’t used fly out menus since the start of the pandemic. In the past few months, one of my sheets crashes when I open it after a set number of seconds. I can squeak in edits if I’m quick. It’s ridiculous.
Crashes Constantly 2/5
The app crashes like every 5 minutes
Inefficient changes 1/5
By Rod at the App Store
I can no longer just tap on a cell to edit. It makes you click the cell and then the pencil. Why add extra steps after years of it just working?
Love this app, but I don’t like new “edit cell” button/feature 4/5
By keiko m.
I have used this app for years and it’s super super useful and has performed well 99% of the time. I recently noticed in the new update that an edit button was added to the app, so now you must double tap the cell or tap the cell then tap the edit button to edit the cell. I understand the usefulness of this, but I also wish it was a feature that could be toggled off for those who don’t need the extra failsafe and would prefer to do things the old way.
Love the app 5/5
By Peaceful summer
Finally figured out the update! If you tap on a square where something is already written, it locks you out from changing the entry. But it turns out this is a good thing! You are prevented from accidentally changing or deleting entries. To intentionally change the entry -wait for this -you must tap on a little pen icon at the far right of the space where you type. Tada! The square is unlocked.
Phew! So glad I figured this out. I must have missed the memo.
Great app, couldn’t live without it.
eternally annoyed by sheet links in safari bringing me to the App Store instead of the actual app 1/5
The app works just fine, however when I paste a link to a doc in the safar browser and it opens, it gives end option to “get sheets” but i already have sheets. This has been an issue for years but I am finally fed up enough to give the feedback. Please fix this issue and I’ll update my rating. Thanks!
Too slow 2/5
By Danse en France
User input is too slow. What are you doing?
Please enable users to create hyperlinks on this app on iPhone and iPad ASAP.
New update 1/5
I’ve used this for a long time and it’s been great. FIX this new update! It’s awful. You click the cell and I can’t immediately edit it. I need to click that stupid edit pencil now. Why would I click on the cell if I didn’t want to edit it!? It’s just extra steps.
What the added clicks 1/5
Why do I have to click the pencil icon everytime I click on a field. I clicked on the field because I want to edit it. Don’t make us tell you twice, for each cell! This “enhancement” was a mistake. At least let us click on the words, “Enter text or formula” to edit cells please.
Edit button 2/5
By #1 nick name
I have click on the edit icon on the formula bar to type any txt in the cells. You should be able to click on the cell and start typing and moving(Tabbing) between each cell without having to click on the edit button for each cell.
Small text input area 1/5
They changed the button and are to input formulas an text and made it a tiny button. Clicking in the big formular textiles no longer works. Why reduce and complex the interactions? :(
New version is clunky 1/5
This app took a real turn for the worse with the last update. It used to be so easy to update cells and now I’m having to constantly do more clicks to enter data.
Please get rid of the extra click 1/5
By Brett0 b$
Please roll back and get rid of the redundant click the edit button. Just go back to a single click to edit a cell.
Fix that and 5 stars.
Don’t hit the checkmark! 3/5
By Jason, self-employed
I use this app throughout the day for my work. Improvements have been made over time and it gets better and better. But today after updating the app an edit button shows up. Every time I hit the checkmark the edit button shows up. I don’t like it. Please put it back to the way it was.
Spreadsheets are for entering and evaluating data. There should at least be a setting where I can turn this “protected view” option off because I always want to edit the data when I open the sheet!
Double click cell to type 1/5
The recent update forces you to double click a cell in order to write. Also, copy and paste keyboard commands no longer work in the app. Please change it back Google!
