I am enjoying the app so far don’t understand if it cost money for the app why do I need to pay more for the app to open on a different devise.
I struggle with the spell check don’t know why it’s not like a computer where the selections come up and u can pick by hitting. Think there’s a edit button then select.
I have only had it for a few days so I will have more to say as I use it.
Excellent sheet 5/5

My experience with this service is amazing. Thanks to the creators!
What happened? 2/5
I love using this app. That being said, after the latest update I was unable to edit MY documents. I get an error saying that I’m unable to update because another user owns it. ??? On my iPad the app crashes when I open it. The only fix was to delete it and reinstall it. Microsoft needs to do better.
Not working with latest update 1/5
Word, Excel and PowerPoint do not work with the latest updates on my iPhone XS Max. App immediately tries to open and crashes!
Live the phone view not the bad dictation and business plan 3/5
Dictation is wonky in this app with random spaces and deleted words happening regularly. Inexplicably, word is free on all iOS devices except the latest iPads.

By Martin Warren Jr
This an good place to write your sermons and that’s what I do.
Made my work life easier 👍🏽 5/5

It’s not free 1/5

Problem pasting Japanese with Furigana 4/5
Furigana doesn’t appear above Kanji. Have similar on Word in my Android phone but it is resolved after I posted a comment.
Won’t Open 1/5
Brand new iPad Pro and brand new download. Why does it close out every time I try to open it? Excel and PowerPoint work fine. Any idea why this is glitching?
Make it easier 4/5
I’m using my iPad to write another novel. There are things I would like Word to do, but I can’t find a way to make it do them. I would like it to open my novel at the point I left writing. Instead it opens one page one and I have to scroll to get to where I am. Yes, the button n the side makes it easier, but why can’t it open where I left it? Can’t it be set to open at the last spot where the prompt was left?
The app is collapsing !!! 1/5
Since the new update the app is collapsing idk why!!! Please help!!!!

Not usable 1/5
Keeps crashing instantly when I click to open it.
Crashes on ios 12.3 immediately. Figures 1/5
Crashes on ios 12.3 immediately. Figures. Can’t open the program at all
A bit of an annoyance 1/5
If you gave me the option to not rate the app and stop pestering me to rate it, you wouldn’t have received one star.
There’s something you might think about changing.
this won’t even load it just keeps circling
Missing features 3/5
I understand why the iPhone would not be able to support several features the desktop version of Word would. Nevertheless, the iPad can easily support several, if not almost all, the features present in the desktop version. Features like downloading templates, sorting, and SmartArt are some examples. I would love to be able to write my college essays without the need to open the program in my computer, but several features available in the desktop version need to be added to the iPad version for this to happen.
Fix ittttttttt! 1/5
I typically don’t like this app because it won’t let me download it and I have to print something for my homework right now so this is like the wrong time I don’t know what’s going on to be honest but I want this app to be fixed right now like now because I cannot go on the app I want to go on the app and everything but I can’t please fix it. thank you!!
CRASHES SOON AS I OPEN ON MY IPAD PRO AND MY IPHONE MAX. PLEASE FIX.
Word Crashes Using 12.3 1/5
By Give me HD or not at all
With the latest update, word crashes upon opening.
Won’t open 1/5
Rashes before fully opening on iPad Pro.
Definitely recommend! Read 4/5
This is a great app, and I love it. You can draw on it, and it’s very useful! The only small thing is that the font you like won’t stay as recently used. It’s more like used 10 seconds ago, if you try to find your font every chapter. It would be very helpful if it could say: would you like to add a favorite font? That would be more than perfect. This app otherwise is incredibly supportive for what I write. It may get confusing at first, but once you start using it, you will handle it and teach others to use this. I love this app! I highly recommended it!
No abra la app 2/5
Desde la nueva actualización no he podido usar el app ya que no me abre
Microsoft Word 5/5
This is an excellent software I can use it in my iPad and phone.i stored in information on word which I ca retrieved when I want.
I don’t know what to rate it! 1/5
By just call me amy
I don’t know what to rate it because I can’t even play it! When I tap on the app it doesn’t let me in. I think it’s a MAJOR bug. I just wanna use the app!!! I don’t know if it’s good because I can’t use it, I might just rate it 0 stars ❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌❌
Last update 1/5
By The Darkest of Angels
Ever since the newest update the app can’t even open without crashing.
Need fixed! 1/5
Each time i try to use or open all programs (word,exiland PowerPoint) crashed.
Used to be the gold standard, not anymore 2/5
Word has become so hard to us. It used to be easy to save change back up in email and have all the comments and changes visible. Now, it opens everything in read only and you have to make a copy. Things have to be saved online and it takes forever. I used to find word to be the best program for writers out there, but now they’re unnecessarily complicated it until it’s extremely frustrating to use unless you use it daily. Ugh!
Crashes immediately 1/5
After updating to iOS 12.3, the app immediately crashes.
Stop Nickel and Diming! 1/5
By Foodie Literature
I don’t want to store my documents in your cloud. And I don’t want to have software on a subscription basis. Offer a purchase option that is straight up ownership or go home.
WHAT THE HECK?? 1/5

Stop slowing down as I use you!
Not fully functional word app 1/5
MS may not want Apple users to buy iPads, but to buy MS surface products.
Love word. It connects with my other Microsoft apps, is slick for editing, and is fast. The only thing I’m not a fan of is the new icon...but that doesn’t have much to do with the functionality. ☺️
I have a little problem 4/5
Hi! I just upgraded my phone to the iPhone XR from the iPhone 6+, the excel, PowerPoint, and word apps are not launching at all. Can you please help me?
I want to open the app but it crashes as soon as I tap to open the app
Not working 1/5
I can’t sign in , the pc version is 100times better.
Will not download 1/5
By Stephanie Perez
Does not download no matter what internet is used
It works ok 4/5
This app and the entire office 365 suite are great apps, but I am personally boycotting any apps that carry a monthly subscription fee. I do not support this billing model. Make a move back towards a one flat purchase and you have a deal. I’m not handing over a bottomless pit of montly payments just to have MS Word on my ipad. I’m not going to let Apple charge my card once a month for $XXX.XX and call it app subscription fees. Nope. That isn’t happening.
Works Well, One Improvement 5/5
When not using a physical keyboard on my iPad it is a chore getting that little magnifying glass to show to be able to place my cursor where I want it. Also, need Option key alternative to use special characters. Great, otherwise, especially when Word just hangs on my old Macintosh and is completely unusable there.
App is crashing after upgrade to iOS 12.3 2/5
After I updated the iOS to 12.3 word and excel are not opening and they are crashing!
Microsoft please fix this!!

Am I really paying for the super slow MS Word? I must be crazy!
MOBILE APP REQUIRES ACCOUNT TO USE 1/5
By Halo Darkness
Microsoft Apps for mobile phones are not as free as Microsoft claims. Unlike most apps, THE MICROSOFT APP IS UTTERLY USELESS until you create an account with Microsoft.
Let me repeat, Microsoft Apps for mobile phones are utterly useless and unusable unless you have, or create, an account with Microsoft.
▪️WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT, OUTLOOK APPS will not allow you to edit, or for that matter do anything beyond review, the document until you have created an account.▪️
OTHER APPS GIVE YOU THE OPTION OF HAVING AN ACCOUNT. Microsoft does not. Create an account with them or don’t use their products period.
Microsoft believes that everyone wants to work online and share documents. Everything is geared towards sharing docs. Nobody considers those of us who do not ever, ever, ever, ever share or work online. EVER.
I use WPS Office because it provides everything I want and I can work offline. The only time I turn on the app is to email the document myself. WPS only lacks the ability to update hyperlinks, WHICH IS WHY I DOWNLOADED THE MICROSOFT WORD APP. Someone told me Microsoft apps kills passwords in documents when it is emailed. I experienced this first hand, last year when I had to redo a 400-page document because it was no longer accessible with the password I had used for years. Yes, years.
How helpful was Microsoft with this issue. It took me a month to get an answer. By then, quite fed up, got rid of the app. At the time, I had been excited to have the app and went through all the required processes of obtaining an account even though I only worked on the document offline. Needless to say, I closed my account and deleted the app.
This time around I just planned on using it to update my hyperlinks. But, the app is a dud without an account.
One other thing, it automatically syncs with the FILES app on iPhone, without notification or asking my permission, mind you. It is the only app on my device that does this. So if you delete a document because... well, the app is a dud, it deletes it from the files app too. Excuse me?! Fortunately, I have learned to make 3-4 copies of my documents and save it everywhere. In Files app, WPS Office app, on a flash drive, and in my email. So while I lost the one in the files app, it is still untouched everywhere else and all I needed to do is resend it Files.
So, I guess I’ll continue what I have been doing. Edit my documents in WPS Office, which I can use offline and without a password, and when I get to a computer I will update the hyperlinks.
So, I suggest a hard pass on any Microsoft apps, for mobile unless you are a die-hard fan and/or desperately need it for work.
Microsoft states under LICENSE that you require an account to use the product. But, you have to search for it. So you decide before downloading the 240MG+ app.
In case Microsoft is wondering why online subscriptions are at their lowest, and stagnating, despite the low $7+ subscription fee. Bad, bad, bad, bad customer service. Disrespect for your customers. And deceptive practises. Just three reasons.
1) You require a Microsoft Account to use their apps on your mobile phone, or you will not be able to edit it at all
2) It automatically syncs with the File app without asking you first
3) If you delete the document in the app and it will delete it from Files app also.
- Not worth it. 1 star
- Stick to the desktop/laptop at work or home
- Go to the library
- Find an app that you can use offline
Crash on 2018 iPad Pro 12.8 1/5
By Bfjdjsjx fbeisisjsjd
Can’t use at all. Work would instantly crash upon launch. Wow, maximum productivity!
Really it works fine so it my 4 4/5
For what I’m asking it to do on my phone it works great. But admittedly at this point I’m a low-tier user so stop asking me
