Microsoft Word is extremely difficult use on the IPad. 1/5
By Owen Hofer
Nothing good to say about Microsoft Word.
Was great; hasn’t kept up; could be great again 1/5
Buggy and crashes constantly. If I didn’t need it for work, I’d cancel my subscription and never look back.
This page is very annoying. Always asking if one wants for updates! It is an ordeal to log on and access documents! A veritable pain!
Word Review 5/5
By Alanna McMahan
Microsoft Word is a great tool to use. I am twelve years old and it comes in handy for school. Word also comes in handy for writing my book.
It is really good 5/5
By Don the Bard
I like it a lot.
Love It! 5/5
This app is so easy to use, has plenty of options, and it’s free! It has truly helped me throughout the years for those last minute essays (lol) and I’m even using it right now for my resume. That’s just awesome. :)
Will docs end up in the cloud or on the PC? Difficult to attach cloud docs to email. If the are stored on PC, it’s time consuming to figure out which folder they are in.
Won’t allow editing on iPad 1/5
By Dr. Super Nova
App restarts every time you switch 1/5
App does not maintain a persistent state — if you are writing something and need to switch apps to check a source, or reference, or number, and switch back, the app will reset and restart and open at the top. This makes the editing experience completely useless and inefficient; you are better off writing in Apple Notes and then transferring it over on an actual computer. This is a 2021 iPad and so the processing power is there to keep a 4 page Word file open — but MS cannot deliver an app that works like it should.
You Said You Wanted to Know - Know This ... 2/5
By The Peab
My current workflow:
- I use the latest version downloaded onto my iPadPro.
- I use an external keyboard.
- I use the Command+Tab keys to quickly switch back and forth between Word and and the built-in reader "Preview".
- Virtually every single time I switch out to Word to the reader, or any other app, for that matter, then back to Word, Word crashes, or it has crashed in the background, and either way I have to restart it. (Just about every time, in case I haven't already mentioned that. And I switch out of Word and back again many dozen of time per day.)
I'm taking a Finance class at a local university and I've got about 8 weeks to go, and I'm literally beside myself with this quirk. Can you please fix this.
Thank you in advance.
Not finding navigation to write a document , on my I pad ,works great on my lap top
By Leggs 777
When technology works it’s wonderful and Word has been working for me for many years
Can’t connect to the account …
The mobile version is trash 3/5
I unfortunately, bought Word specifically for writing on my ipad but most of the features I signed up for with the addition of 360 are not available on the app. Using it in on a mobile browser is also hit and miss. It’s doable but annoying.
By Quintin D. Jones
The App freezes and has lost the work I was doing. Not happy at all.
The best keeps getting better! 5/5
Word is my first last and everything when it comes to writing task✍🏿✍🏿
Screwed Corporate Policies Mixed with Private 1/5
I do not know what happened if that is fault of our corporate policy or Microsoft fail to implement MDM, or Apple fail to provide proper functionality in iOS 15 … but I do not understand why I’m blocked by our corporate policy everywhere means in all Microsoft applications. Whenever I would like to open document from my private Teams in word, excel, power point, I’m always failing with inaccessibility because for some reasons corporate policies are applied to my personal account. What the heck ! I can’t simple print nothing. How is that even possible. Aren’t all applications send boxes how Microsoft achieved this stupidity !? I don’t care who’s fault it is, just fix it asap! Totally useless app which leads me to use purely Apple products like Pages, Numbers, etc.
Straight to the point 5/5
It functions like Word document, capabilities almost as close as to the ones you use at desktop / laptop - it’s not the same on mobile of course, but still gets the job done
5 stars 5/5
It was doing the thing I wanted it to do when I wanted it to happen. For the curious: I was high and REALLY needed to write my brilliant ideas down super fast and Word came through with the .doc I needed. I had previously saved on my computer during my last thrilling and hazy adventure. Thanks One Drive for the assist.
Rất tuyệt vời
I CAN NOT FIND MORE THAN Half of my story. 2/5
I have been writing a story in journal type style and now many paragraphs and pages are gone. They just disappeared. I can't believe it. I need to get them back. How could I get them back? Please help. I have been using Word for years.
Crashes Frequently 1/5
Word crashes every time I close the app then reopen it. Freezes the document, then crashes, then I reload it and my information is gone. So frustrating
Me a sido útil para editar documentos desde el celular
By Don't bell
Word for IPad differs too much from regular word for me. I also often have issues with lagging with this app and my work not saving DESPITE having auto save on. I could not recover an entire project I did for school the day before it was due and there was nothing that anyone could do to help me.
Too difficult to find files 2/5
Simple things like finding files and opening them is so complicated. I would rather use my laptop. Does not work well on iPad
Requires a subscription to edit 1/5
Contrary to the description.
It never works! 1/5
I signed for a family membership for Microsoft Office package and it is a nightmare to use it! It never works! Very frustrating!!!
Don’t buy 1/5
First of all Microsoft is greedy, and this program used to be free. Now you expect us to pay for an app that doesn’t even work right even while using the free side. You’d have to pay me to buy this garbage.
A Return to Classic Form 4/5
TFW you really need to write some things on the plane and you were relishing the idea of time without WiFi so that you could focus on writing so you pull out your iPad (w/ Magic Keyboard) to write and Word demands you to sign in before you can do ANYTHING.
Doesn’t matter that you’ve been subscribed for years, or that you have an annual subscription that renewed four months ago, Word has to phone home.
And once again you miss your imperative deadline thanks to a user hating design pattern courtesy the genius camp in Redmond.
Utterly unusable, a perfect return to the true Microsoft form of the Bill Gates heyday. Never change.
Can not edit my own doc 1/5
For some reason I cant edit my own doc on this app. Super frustrating.
FIX COMMENTS 2/5
This software is unusable for anyone trying to do track changes on an iPad Pro. Fix it.
Making edits and redlining the edits and saving my changes 1/5
By William kirsch.
It doesn’t allow me to efficiently redline nor show and save my edits to a document.
Love word forever❤️ 5/5
By erica ❤️💕
Lagging is out of this world 2/5
This app is fine most of the time except when it lags. It lags when you type, and when you delete for sometimes up to an entire sentence. It also for some reason after it lags puts periods behind random words and then capitalizes the next letter. I hate using it for anything because of this. I use this for school and have had to use google docs (highly recommended instead of this) and copy and paste my documents to get anything done.
Very Productive App 4/5
Use the App a lot to do my Honor Guard Minutes.
By Heroes and Weirdos
Simply clumsy app 1/5
At times totally unworkable
New iPad and now I can’t use this app 1/5
Upgraded my iPad and now I have to pay for Microsoft 365 if I want to create and edit documents? Absolutely ridiculous.
The app for me is slow, it often crashes or freezes prompting me to close the app and reopen constantly. It’s a huge hassle, especially as all my online work is done on Word. Seeing as I have enough to be stressed out about, I don’t want to have to worry about technology not cooperating. It’s terribly frustrating.
CALM. DOWN. 3/5
I don’t even know if I like the app because u can’t get into it! Look- I’m cool with you trying to be safe. But I can’t get into the app! This is a bit too safe-
great application 5/5
very nice and practical
If you are an author or a writer I would never use this app for anything. I have had nothing but issues saving information. My iPhone begins updating automatically without my choosing and while I am speaking into the phone on Microsoft Word, it does not save anything because it is updating at the same time while not informing me that it is updating.
It has a large amount of problems switching from Microsoft office app to Microsoft word app.
A Majority of words that I have misspelled have come up as British words instead of the English language even though I have American English selected as my language.
Dave also just made it very difficult to add periods at the end of sentences. As a professional writer I would never recommend this app to anyone at all for any reason. I find that the Google dock app is a far superior app to this piece of trash. I would never use Microsoft word app on iPhone especially for any reason whatsoever.
Can’t share files 2/5
By King Yawson
You can no longer share files from this app you guys should kindly check & fix it please

I cant figure out where the keyboard it on a new document
By حجة اللة
