Solid Program, but Needs ‘Create Template’ Function 4/5
This is the first version of Numbers I’ve used, so I can’t say I feel thrown off by the most recent update (seems other users have been, though the functions mentioned in their comments are ones I was able to find and use in this latest version—function layout must have dramatically changed). I was able to Google my way through finding the functions I wanted for a basic speadsheet involving dollars, dates, checklist, adding/deleting columns/rows, changing column width, etc. Everything worked seamlessly! The one disappointment is when I Googled how to create my own template, I found this is not an option when using the app. One has to create the template using the Mac version of Numbers, add the template, and then access it from the app. I don’t have a Mac, so... Despite the great variety of templates and being able to find one that was close to what I wanted, it would be nice to be able to create my own so I don’t have to tweak the template every time I want a new spreadsheet. There might be some work-around I haven’t figured out yet, but until then, it seems I’m out what could be a really great feature—creating my own template.
Not bad, but not good either. 3/5

Are you kidding me! On this thing I can’t even find a line chart! come on fix your ways! If I can’t find a line chart nobody can. I need my line charts!!!!!!
Can’t open spreadsheet after update. 1/5
I have one spreadsheet I use once a month and after updating, I click on the spreadsheet and nothing happens, nor can I get a new one... Miss my Windows and Excel...
Bad update 1/5
By Unicorn Goat
It freezes when I try to move files, and no longer works.
Keep my number In order my budget
Ok for me. 3/5
By Mr. Muser
This app is good. For me at least. It is just that I am a google user. But since I don’t have the google sheets app on my iPad. This is helpful cause I can share it to my google account. But when I am on my laptop I would defenetly use google sheets. Now, this is just my opinion. If you are a apple productivity user or use apple productivity software on a Mac then screw what I said and get this app. But this app is not for everyone. When I get google sheets I will not use this app though. This is better than Lebre office though.
So after years of frustration 1/5
I will get an inexpensive Windows laptop and run Excel. Numbers could have been, and should have been, much better by now, especially given the power of the latest i-Pad Pro. I don’t know what Apples logic is here, but it seems that they want this app to die on the vine. Sad. And it still doesn’t find a number of stocks by ticker (ex: PCM Fund) or prices for others (BGX) which are all easily found using other apps. Numbers is a “dogs breakfast...”! Pitiful! It’s apps like this that make others call the iPad a “toy”. BTW, I would gladly pay a fair price for a “working” version of Numbers. “Stock Quote” doesn’t find a number of stocks that display on other apps, and when selecting Previous Close it winds up with a red triangle in the field instead!
Numberrors :( 2/5
I only really use this app to enter my bills and payments data into a sheet. When opening app several times none of my documents will appear. This is very alarming to think that all that info is gone. For an Apple item to work like this, clearly buggy on a simple thing, is sad.
By Jennifer Dickens
I Love numbers because it hope me with my Facebook and Twitter & massage chat
Awesome until Update 3/5
This app works great for me. The only issue I have with it is that since the newest update it no longer allows you to create folders.
This will probably cause me to find another app as I definitely need folders to organize all my forms.
What a bummer!
For whatever reason, my sheets are present but won’t open. It feels like everything Apple is becoming garbage, including the iPhone.
400 MB? 3/5

Takes so much memory space. :(
Love it but.... 3/5
Tonight, it will not open a document that I have been using for a fundraiser that I am putting together. Sure hope that it gets fixed so I do not loose all the info I have!!
Can’t open a new template on iPad Pro 1/5
The app worked at one time. Now I have an iPad Pro on the most recent os release. The software can no longer open a template.
piece of cloud-based junk 1/5
By Honest review dude
can't even save locally to iphone, it has to save to icloud.
Let's say a company has important company secrets on a spreadsheet, and doesn't want it in the cloud? Well, That ain't gonna work.
The app has stopped working, no matter how many times it is reinstalled it just is not working
What once was great, now is bad 2/5
This used to be one of my most used and most intuitive apps. Since the new IOS update, I hate this app. Too many steps to get the same process done. This needs to be fixed
Junky app 1/5
I have tried to save things, only to never find them again. Terrible app.
So. Unbelievably. Laggy. 2/5
By Squash Those Bugs
Frequently it’ll take half a second between a touch input on the keyboard and the corresponding character to be typed into the cell. This doesn’t happen in any other apps, so it’s not my phone’s processor speed.
Even worse, very frequently my preset text replacements (Settings → General → Keyboard → Text Replacements) won’t trigger because of the lag. I use text replacements constantly in Numbers because many cells have the same or similar entries. I suspect there’s some sort of asynchronicity going on where the keyboard times out any text lookup if it takes too long. In other words, Numbers has such keyboard lag that it frequently triggers this timeout. Again, this doesn’t happen with any other app.
This app is addicting for someone like me that works on a lot of projects and is quickly developing into a neat freak.....I've been using this app every single day, planning a baby shower, creating calendars and budgets and connecting my hubby to it with the new share option that lets him edit it also....I do not yet know what the other are complaining about but I hope I never find out.
App is totally broken 1/5
Can’t create new document. The app is totally hosed. Can’t even delete it.
All the OneStars must work for Microsoft😂 5/5
There is an emotional reason to dislike the product. The threat to people’s dependence on Excel for their spreadsheets is very real, and this app beautifully demonstrates how intuitive spreadsheets, charts, and graphing can be👍
POS (and I don’t use that term lightly) 2/5
By Listening in Milwaukee
Figured I’d try this out - Apple makes great solutions, right?
Spend a full day gathering info from the web and creating a comparison spreadsheet - and it froze up briefly and no w will not open at all. Thanks Apple.
Ok - seemed to auto-recover after a few re-boots. Still not happy that I had to deal with the frustration.
I want it practical. 1/5
I have found that if I put in “9:00 PM” it will put either “date, 9:00, PM” or “21:00.” No. No. No. As it turns out, my family and friends do NOT use a 24 hour clock, we use a good old fashioned “1 means 1, 3 means 3” clock. NOT a “13 means 1, 15 means 3” clock. So doing a 24 hour clock (“15 means 3” type clock) is not only annoying, but also impractical. We do not need 3 keyboards for one cell (just one, the NORMAL ONE in case you were wondering), neither do we also need the date.
I have personally tried to do a weekly planner that is rather flexible and consistent, so what I put down will be good for the next week and Mayb the week after that as well. SPECIFIC DATES RUIN THAT! I don’t care if u call it an “update.” When you made it so it adds the date or converts the time (no matter HOW MANY TIME U CORRECT IT) all you did was ruin a perfectly good app. I’m sorry not sorry, but you need to either re-update it properly (as in, take out all the things (like the time converting) that make the user want to chuck their device at the wall), or make a new app and NOT ADD ON TO IT ONCE ITS DONE AND PRACTICAL. When you (the programmers, the designers, whatever you want to call yourselves) get bored, you tinker. You add on. You ruin your apps.
Great UI 5/5
Very fluid input interface. Visually coherent templates. I prefer this software to offerings from Google and Microsoft.
Getting to my files 2/5
On my iPhone, I have not been able to get to my files for awhile. I’ve checked my iCloud settings, etc. but I still can’t get my files! What’s wrong?
Last 3 updates 4/5

Do not want any of the 3 please quit please quit!!!!!!!!!!!’ Thanks Mjb
Can’t even open numbers now 1/5
I am not sure if it was lost with the collaboration portion they were trying to implement. I can’t even open my own file across devices. It seems like it likes my iPad and that is it. If I want to open on one of my iPhones it’s a crap shoot. Sometimes it will, most of the time it won’t. What’s the deal? Notice my use of Apple devices. This is what I loved about Apple. It was seamless across everything. Now just buggy like Microsoft.
I found that by powering off all my devices and bringing them back on restored access across devices.
Really enjoy numbers. 5/5
If math could have a photoshop equivalent numbers would be it. I love it
I can’t currently open my files - I tap on them and them don’t open, it just sits there. I am using a iPad Pro 12.9 first gen.
When that is not happening, I find the app to be good enough.
Tried to use it to setup a simple budget. Closed the app and reopened less than an hour later and the entire spreadsheet was gone. I can see the remnants under recent but it will not open the file so I cam work on it. I have seen better run apps by scammers than this, at least those save what you enter.
Drastic change 2/5
This app has been good for a year and through January 2018 but when I updated my iphone at the end of January, all my files are very hard to find and can’t be opened. Big fail!!
Helper does not open any of my current business spreadsheets. Guess I’ll have to go to the office and use my Windows laptop.
By upset old lady
The update is a nightmare, I can not get into most of my files. I have uploaded the current version, but when I try to open the file it says I have to upload the current version. I then go to the app store and it shows I have the update and will only show open. I reopen numbers and get the same message when I try to reopen the file. This is a nightmare because most of the files deal with my mother's medical records and history which I need when I take her to the doctors.
iPad 2 1/5
I'm using an apple produce, iPad 2, and apple numbers app is not compatible? Using google sheets again, I know that works fine.

This application is broken again. I am unable to access my spreadsheets from my phone this week. Last week I could access but could not make changes. Each week a new malfunction. Broken.
Failed Basic File Download 1/5
I use Numbers on my MBP. Works fine. Tried to use the app on an ipad mini to download a checklist in xlsx format to take into field. Checklist in Dropbox. App was unable to download and open the file. Went into endless spinning circle on file. Unable to halt and exit failed process. App deleted. Will use pencil and paper to get the work done and do data entry on MBP later. (Numbers has no problem opening same file on MBP)
Won’t let me create a spreadsheet 1/5
When I first open the app on my iPad after downloading it and I select “create spreadsheet” and then select a template all it does is sit there and have loading icon spinning. I’ve left it sit there for hours and nothing happens. Then I close it and re open it, and click on the plus icon and nothing happens. I have re downloaded it about 6 times and the same thing happens every time.
no stars should be an option .... 1/5
this app has become absolutely worthless!!
since the new update, i can't open ANY of my documents. some were new, some were old but it doesn't matter, can't open any them. now i'm going to have to try to redo ALL of them with another app that actually f*cking works!!!
to add to that, it won't let me share any of the spreadsheets. been getting the same bs 'check your connections' box for three days ....
Glitchy sheets 2/5
By Rob in sj
Glitchy with multiple sheets. When u are working on sheet 1, and go to sheet 2 tab, then click down to enter data, sheet will jump back to sheet 1. You will have to click sheet tab multiple times before actually being allowed to edit other sheets. Waste of time
Where you expecting Excel? 5/5
This is not Excel. Excel is the best by far. This is for native iOS feel and abilities for quick and easy spreadsheets. It works wonders with iOS and smart device form factors. Use it for basic native tasks, but don’t expect Excel
Lost , can’t depend on numbers any more 1/5
By FL no name
All my work is missing. It’s a treasure hunt now😩
I’ve set up personal budgeting on this app twice. After two years - everything is gone. I rebuilt the spreadsheet last month with 3 years data - this morning it’s gone again. Apple your Numbers app is ABSOLUTELY WORTHLESS.
By Vulgar demos
Despite not having the same functionality as the macOS version, this is a great way to make simple edits.
Work grayed out 1/5
All my work is greyes out and is asking to update but I am running the latest version of app and IOS. No Access to All of My Work.
Not good anymore. 1/5
By Mama Inday
This app used to be easy to use. Unfortunately the update has actually made it difficult and confusing to use. I guess they never heard the phrase, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Please, please, please, change it back so I don’t have to switch to quick books.
Where’s my files? 1/5
It seems like there is a decline in program quality from apple. And since its founder cannot not get them out of this one, i feel like this company is heading for failure. GET WITH IT! Apple is not just about its hardware, its about its software as well. Regarding Numbers... it has failed miserably. The files I once had on my IPad are now un accesible. FIX IT or drop out of the software business. DO NOT GIVE OUT AN UPDATE IF IT WILL CAUSE MORE ISSUES THAN IT SOLVES!
Loss data. 1/5
For two years I have been placing data in NUMBERS without any problems. All of a sudden I download and update 11.? And BINGO no more data I cannot open or place data in NUMBERS. What can I do to retrieve the lost data.
