Could be better 3/5
Spell check is not the same as the normal word. It finds the simple words but it does not help with others
Also it closes the documents you working on when you switch to another app
Love it 5/5
By Royal Duckling
I love how it connects to my one drive.
Microsoft WORD 5/5
Difficult learning curve 1/5
By The Gonk
Compared to regular word, you have to relearn how to do things... also, I opened a document today and all my fonts are gone! Not even arial or Times New Roman. There is 1 font in the selection. USELESS!!! Developers should be required to monitor and use their apps.
Great app 5/5
By Denny the Yukon
Could be better 3/5
It is a good tool but lacks useful editing features.
The app wouldn't update and I deleted the app so that I can reinstall it, but it won't download. Please fix this!
Mi reseña 5/5
By armando Laboy
Es muy importante para mi porque puedo escribir mis pensamientos Cristianos para poder publicarlos mil gracias por su colaboración con esta aplicación.
Thank you for making this app! 5/5
The future generations would agree if they knew just how much thought was put into this.
Good, but needs more features from the desktop version 4/5
By Johnny B10225
While Word on iPad is one of the better word processors available for the platform, this is definitely a trimmed down version of Word and is missing many of the features found on the desktop version. There is no reason for this now that the hardware makes it possible. I pay for Office 365 and expect the same functionality regardless of which device I am currently working on (so long as the hardware is capable - and the 2018 iPad Pro is more than capable).
I just wish I could print !
By Pale Hearse
This will NOT allow you to edit word documents.
I have a word document in drop box. I got thisvti allow me to make a quick notation.
Instead this is nothing more than a ploy to get you to upgrade your 360 account.
Not happening. Deleting it now.
I don’t mind paying for the app up front.. but I’m not going to add to a subscription that should already have the ability.
Microsoft Word 5/5
This app is legit my dad. It makes me wettttt
Not bad 4/5
Works just as I need it to do 5/5
Works just as I need it to do... I can use it everywhere
Suddenly Free Access Ends? 1/5
I was using this on the regular, and then all of a sudden with the most recent update I cannot use even basic functionality without a 365 subscription? I’d pay $15 for this app once, but not a recurring fee... Off to Google Docs I guess...
It’s wonderful 5/5
I’m writing this review since Word keeps bugging me to rate it every time I use it. Maybe this will stop it.
I had to rate this to stop the annoying pop up! STOP invading our privacy!
By Idol Favorite
Use Word Exclusively!
I like it!
Just tweak the doc to pdf so it’s easier to use on tweets etc.
A “Free” App You Have to Pay to Use 1/5
By iNerddy :D
Your update says you’ve “only” done bug fixes. That’s not true. Now we need a subscription to CREATE, to EDIT, and to SAVE documents?
I’m a college student, and I only downloaded Word to type up papers (on the go), save, and send the document(s) for printing or upload it(them) to my professor. I don’t need a subscription that comes with all of the other fancy Word abilities & apps I’ll never use.
Now I have to pay to use the edit & save buttons? $6.99+/month for the “create” & “save” buttons? Microsoft is already rich, there’s no need to be greedy. Apple has the greedy part covered.
Could be better :\ 2/5
I feel like they didn’t really think things through when they made this app. I would love this app if it had more options like the Microsoft Word por the computer has
STOP CHANGING THINGS THAT AREN’T BROKEN! 1/5
What in God’s name made y’all think you needed to mess with the comments panel on the right? It’s UTTER TRASH now. There’s a delay that has made me delete the passage I’m commenting on at least 3 times a session. And god forbid you need to change a comment. Plus, it’s hideous! There wasn’t anything wrong with it before, I just don't’ get it. I work in documents and commenting constantly, but now, I’ll be moving to google docs. This just screws with the workflow on a massive scale. Dumb dumb change.
Need a subscription 1/5
They let you install the application, then tell you that you need a subscription to save something...
Sometimes, My papers just get deleted. 1/5
By Call me doc
I have written a few essays on this app, and the most recent one was deleted when I left the app and came back. Be careful, this is a half assed attempt at true Microsoft word and the bugs (while few in number) makes this app nearly unusable for some like me. Just use google drive.
This app is unstable and is difficult to save out to my google drive as pdf or .doc. App needs more enhancement features like the full version has such as adding design features, master pages, link text boxes etc...
File saving is a dumpster fire 2/5
Trying to save a file is a true war crime.
There's no reason this app shouldn't have build in Files.app support.
Bugs bugs & more bugs 1/5
Every fix brings more problems. Now I can no longer save files to my phone.
I love this apps Formatting Templates!!❤️❤️ 3/5
This app is easy to navigate and beneficial when you are on the go!
Not sure what is going on. 1/5
Recently I have been typing a book on Word.From one second to the next all of my fans lost their names I have to go by each individual funds to find the funds that I need to use there are no font name is just blank spaces with the little cloud icon if I want to download them or the little circle with the exclamation point. It’s very strange and Word has been having issues with fonts downloading and refreshing then stopping me from exporting as .Pdf. Not sure what’s going on but i put the app in full debugger mode. Hopefully something is found.
A small add-on? 5/5
Real quick, in mobile view on iPhone specifically can you add an indent button? It’s obvious to my readers when I work from my phone before editing on my iPad. Otherwise, amazing app, great concept
It is great 5/5
The word app is amazing and works just like on a computer.
Get with it 1/5
I just downloaded another app that was 228GB in seconds and not using WiFi. Why are you requiring I be on WiFi to download your update? Makes no sense
Lost all my Emoji’s 1/5
Whatever so called bug fix I lost all my emojis in my documents that I spent a year setting up!
Keyboard lag 1/5
K---- Keyb--oard... l---ag. That is all.
Apple Pencil Bug 1/5
By Apple Pencil Bug
Most of the app is good but it is very frustrating that when you write with the apple pencil the words shift and dont stay where you write this. I have seen others complain about this issue but have not seen any way to fix it.

Word save me . 4/5

Word save me.
Very Limited App w/o subscription 1/5
First, love Microsoft products! I own 3 licenses to MSOffice (2013-2016) on 3 different computers. However, the Office Apps are a bit disappointing without a subscription to Office365! You can’t create, can’t save, can’t edit documents. Also cannot print to file, save as PDF etc. So basically, using office doc/spreadsheet editors on my iPad to ‘view’ already created doc’s, is useless (without paying a subscription cost, which is another monthly payment outside of even owning your own copies of previous versions of these products). Too bad Microsoft doesn’t give flexibility in these/this area. Seems all conglomerates are ‘all about the money!’
Fonts are missing :o( 1/5
All fonts are not showing up after this most recent update. Please fix ASAP
Fonts Are Missing 1/5
After the most recent update (1/14/19), the drop down list of fonts are missing now. Please fix!
Emojis Broken 1/5
After todays update the emojis no longer show in the documents. They’re black and white and ugly! Please fix so they’re in color again
Way too many glitches
I love it, it works amazing. I just wish that all users could use draw without having an updated computer. I use this everyday for my school and LOVE it, if you are debating between Apache Open Office and Office 365, Office 365 is going to be the best and most usable option. It is simple, but advanced in the best ways. Thank you to all of you guys who made this!
Thank you 4/5
I must say this is my favorite way for me to document things.
Needs work, but OK 4/5
By Randall King
Why, every time Microsoft Office apps are updated, is the download 200-300 MB? Has Microsoft not heard of delta updates?
Otherwise, good app!
ALWAYS needing wifi for updates?! 2/5
After my previous phone’s screen was broken, I had to get it replaced. Fortunately the old phone was still semi-functional, so I could back it up in iCloud. But then I get the replacement, and find that Word didn’t seem to update fast even while I was connected with a wifi. I’m guessing that might have been simply because it was the whole entire app while it was also trying to recover everything else like my pictures and music, etc. It still took a whole week and a half. THEN, I find out the original file of a novel that I was writing for almost four years wasn’t in iCloud. I have to reconstruct it piece by piece from the online book hosting website instead!!!! I still HAVE to use Word though, because my editor doesn’t accept some online hosted book, they need an emailed file when I’ve finished enough. This is one massive headache!!!!
Lots of lags ad crashes
You Stupid Jackasses 1/5
This is just word, all you have to do is creat a documentary of sorts, but there are so many bugs and glitches, WHY! It’s just work!
Excellent App 5/5
I’ve tried several different word processors for the ipad and Word remains the best. The only caveat is that there are features on the laptop version that are missing and I wish would have been included.
