No, it isn’t that other product from MS. However, for my needs it’s perfect; specifically because I can go from my iMac to my iPad Air and view or change data. At this point in my life, I do not need fancy formulas or graphs or linked sheets. It’s a flat file database that is great for my purposes. Thanks!
Very Limited Real Capabilities 2/5
Only useful for very simple spreadsheet activities. Eg; No ability to build macros; trendlines only can be very basic analysis; difficult to input and format data and charts compared to excel; will not automatically interpolate across data gaps (eg: you don’t have data for day x, so charting just stops there and leaves blanks; leaving you to create your own formulas to generate interpolated data for those days - big pain when you have intermittent data and frustrating when gaps are only 1 day or 2days); Displayed trendline formula appears to not match sense compared to line plotted, etc. In short, took work okay for simple plots where you have all data and lots of time to enter and format. As full analytical tool it has a long way to go.

This is my “go to” app 5/5
I love this app! My primary uses are for a monthly budget and a daily complex TV schedule (2 households, multiple recordings, 4 DVRs+). I would love to see the following three features added: (1) the ability to click/tap on an image (or just several merged cells containing text) and pop-up a larger version of the image/merged cells**. (2) the ability to use multiple merged cells to hand write notes using the Apple Pencil (varying nib sizes, move the merged notes around and/or cut/delete like any other cell or merged cells). (3) the ability to insert a moveable and removable window (either set or expandable size, like 4 cells wide and high to 6 cells, or more, wide and high) that would accept animated GIFs and/or video clips. Features 1 and 2 are features I could use immediately.
**This would really help my friend (with poor near-vision) read the individual blocks of information on the TV schedule.
Can’t install in iPad 1/5
I’m trying to install and all it does is show the stop button but it’s been like that for days
Not working 1/5
By bosques mendoza
It is not working and it looks like I have lost the data of my company’s financials. Could demand you guys for this
Terrible Smart Keyboard Folio Support 1/5
Why is it that my Smart Keyboard Folio works great in every other app, can use keyboard shortcuts for the OS, but can’t move cells or edit text in Apple’s Numbers app most of the time. It doesn’t always fail, it does work sometimes, but it’s hit or miss and inexplicable. It should work 100% of the time and Apple’s apps should have the best support for Apple’s accessories.
Upgrading Numbers lost edits to my spreadsheet 1/5
I just upgraded Numbers and went opened a spreadsheet I had just been looking at before the 'upgrade'. It went back a version that was 2 years old and lost all of my more recent edits. Thanks, Apple, for losing my data.
So slow! 1/5
It takes 2 minutes to download a document with 3 pages
Love it 5/5
Don’t understand why this gets such bad ratings, I love Apple Numbers. I’ve never loved the infinite expanse of Excel and I really love the simplified layout of this app. For my personal needs, since I don’t have a high end reporting tool like Tableau, I like that I can mix data tables and graphics on a single page that looks nice. Easy to move things around too. A few features it is missing are the ability to hide sheets that are used for background data. And it would also be nice to have the auto sum avg and count information when highlighting multiple cells like in the desktop app. Other than that, its great.
Still waiting for keyboards 1/5
By Good but needs ...
Still hopeful that Apple brings back the original Date/Times keyboard and accept an honest mistake in removing them.
Numbers used to be very simple and easy to select months, days or years, now you have to tap, tap, tap, tap... until you get to the month or day you want. You might say, we can enter the dates by typing the numbers, but why? When in previous versions I could with 1 tap select January or December. Now if I want to go from, let’s say January 01, 2018 to December 2018 I have to tap “month” button 11 time! When in the past I would select “December” and done. This example applies to the the time as well. Apple has gone from making software as simple and as few taps possible to over complicated.
Numbers is awesome. 5/5
Numbers is as good as the competitor, I can’t mention the name, otherwise they won’t post my comment. I’m a recent (the last year) convert to Apple. I love my iPhone, Mac, new iPad Pro, not in an idol kind of way (which would be unChristian) but they “work” ,,when you click on something it does what you are expecting other than freeze up.I am converting all of my friends to Apple.
Limited compared to others 2/5
Numbers, come on. Fix your app, Apple! Compared to excel, they are way better in mobility and is very versatile, has many coding options, more templates, and more! With numbers, you are stuck with limited options. I mean it’s not bad, but step up your game.
Each time this thing is updated I have to re-enable third party document location.
Too big 1/5
500 MB is too much for iPhone. Cut the size down NOW
Not getting installed even after several attempts 1/5
The app came with the iPhone 11 purchase 6 months ago having it already installed but I never used it. When I wanted to make use of it now it wasn’t working. I tried uninstalling, restarting the phone and reinstalling but I am not able to install it. It keeps showing just the solid small square box to stop but the circle outside the square is not showing any progress even after minutes
Review from an Iraqi 5th grade student 5/5
YOU. GUYS ARE AWSOME ❤️ I USED this app since the pandemic (corona virus) begin and to study at home, it’s easy to use and THANKS TO YOU, I. GOT FULL MARK ON MY CLASSES!
Fun, easy, useful, amazing
Those guys who rage at reveiws are just:
80% lazy students how don’t like work, fake it that the app doesn’t work.
19% people how doesn’t know how to use and pretend it’s has bugs
1% people who REALLY have problems and they may have less memory or things like that, only 0.97% are true people who have REAL problems and they want a fix maybe they really have problems ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
❤️ ❤️ ❤️ thanks pages and numbers and keynote (APPLE )
Space key 3/5
If I want to use the full keyboard access the space key activate anything but doesn’t make an space where I am writing something in a cell. Why?
Won’t even load templates to get started 1/5
None of the templates work, all give an error message. Tried deleting and downloading again and also tried downloading to another Apple device. Same issue every time on every device. Can’t even make it beyond the choose a template screen to try to explore the app further. Very disappointed.
Crashes immediately 1/5
Can’t open a single spreadsheet, new or old. Totally broken.
Does not work. 1/5
The files I want to open will not open. I force quit the app and it takes a while for them to appear. After that, it still fails to open my documents! Nothing is the same when updating my 2018 iPad to iPadOS. I feel as if every update will worsen the products performance.
Update 05/03/2020: still does not work.
I get two different results 4/5
When I add a 2d pie chart and use the references on my table from only two cells I get a pie chart with different percentages than what’s on my table. I wanted to have two visuals showing me the same result. The table is correct and I double checked. The pie chart is somehow displaying the same information inaccurately, the difference is about half a percent too low on the chart. I deleted the chart.
I had to uninstall the app because I couldn’t update my table the next morning, the app would freeze while updating the spreadsheet since the night before. I deleted the App and reinstalled, I was able to work on my table again, but the pie chart I added still displays inaccurate percentages. I did add decimals to view so I know it’s not a rounding issue. I added decimals to the hundredths for the chart to display.
Please help, thank you.
Oh dear 1/5
Ouch. This version doesnt hold a candle the macOS version. Of course you don’t expect The functionality of a desktop version but this ios version is embarrassing
By Simy. I
Not loading my selected file.
Kept saying “Numbers could not read file”
Frustrating to Use 1/5
By Old Guy in KY 1955
I thought I child get by without Excel by using Numbers since I no longer had serious business uses for Excel. I was wrong. What a mesirable counterintuitive piece of software. Trying to edit chart ranges in the iPad version is virtually impossible and it is difficult in the Mac version.
Add a second Y axis to a chart. Not possible. It makes pretty spreadsheets but the interface is clumbsy. Editing formulas is way to difficult. Google sheets is a much better option than numbers and way more feature complete. Excel and Sheets are real spreadsheet apps. Numbers is a pretty toy.
Lost files 1/5
Lost a file. I know I did not delete it. How do I get it back?
I wish you could combine 4/5
I wish you could past an existing chart into a second one as a new page.
App speed slowed to a crawl 1/5
Overnight this app went from running really well to being painfully slow for. Also it now says it can’t save the data.
No Longer Works 1/5
This app no longer works! I can open the application, yet I am unable to open/load any templates not even the Basic Blank template. When I click on a template a message pops up that says “Can’t Open Spreadsheet “Blank.numbers” can’t be opened right now. Numbers couldn’t read the file.” Also, I no longer have access to any previous documents; it’s like they all got deleted and I know I didn’t delete them. I am also having this same problem in Keynote, but not in Pages.
Please fix it!
Tab delimited data won’t import 4/5
Update: Turns out the data import feature requires at least two complete rows of data. I have modified my data source and it appears to work well.
Previous reviews: With the 3.1 update, the keyboard has become very cumbersome. It used to be user friendly. Now it takes 20 extra button clicks to enter information in a few cells. Please bring back the old methods!!! Update: I cannot say I noticed the "improvements" in the keyboard for version 3.1.1. Update 2: 3.1.2 Cells formatted for dates still don't bring up a date keyboard. Version 3.3: Finally they brought back the keyboards that are specific to cell formatting. Upping the review from 1 to 4 stars. Version 5 stopped allowing tab delimited data to be imported from the clipboard. Version 10 stopped allowing tab delimited data to be imported from the clipboard again! NOTE TO DEVELOPERS: “Add import of tab delimited data from shortcuts app as part of the pre release software testing.” This program is just inconsistent when it comes to updates. You just don’t know what feature you will loose next!
Update killed my spreadsheets 1/5
I have detailed spreadsheets using this app and this last update just killed them, just a bunch of formulas that don’t work anymore. I spent years perfecting these spreadsheets and formulas and it’s all gone now.
Use excel, don’t trust your data with this joker app.
App Store guidelines 3/5
You guys set guidelines for apps distributed in the App Store such as the app must ask you for access to the camera or photos and videos .
I see no toggle in the settings app to disable camera access permission for this app.
If you guys set the guidelines for other app developers you should lead other app developers by example and, require your iLife and iWork apps to ask the end user for the permissions you require other app developers to adhere to when building apps.
You will see this same review on iMovie Keynote and Pages detailing this
Won’t load and it crashes 1/5
I updated it this morning because it won’t let me share till you update the app. So I did.! What happened next? Well it doesn’t work now. Screen goes black then for a matter of 10 seconds you think it’s going to work then it just kick you out of the app. Please fix it I have some importants paperwork on this app.
Crashes all the time. Worked ok until a recent update and then the app would crash at launch. Deleted and reinstalled. App opens now but crashes when opening a file. FOUR rows in a file and it crashes. Hot garbage.
I like this app but the only thing is that it would be better with some education like life cycles.
By far the most versatile excel app I’ve used. Been using this app for at least a year now. Easy, simple, will do just about everything you need.
Repuu I era to Apple had ne Labeled as a terrorist 5/5
Long time ago I reported this defense inequity ti apple as requested over their iPod casts , the operator thought I was plum mad , come to find out it was true and some other dude reporting the same thing became a hero , while I was marked a terrorist , they’ve kepy that standing ever since , limiting my access to my own applications ,.
By Luis Henng
NUMBERS IS REALLY GREAT , THEY HAVE GREAT FEATURES AND I USE IT A LOT FOR MY BUSINESS I REALLY LIKE THE EMPLOYEE SCHEDULE
Works great 5/5
iCloud integration with Numbers on my Mac works great. Simple to use. Love the collaboration features.
This app is ok but i just need a light template but not one with a bunch of texts. Other wise I don’t have much to say
useful for very small spreadsheets only 3/5
keyboard entry of large datasets very clumsy and time consuming, corrections of typos inside a long text, number or (worse) functions is nerve wrecking
Good app, but needs more advanced features 3/5
This is a really powerful spreadsheet app for iPad, and it has pretty much all the basic features you would need. Unfortunately that’s pretty much where the line stops, there’s still a lot of missing features, like Pivot tables, that Numbers doesn’t support. Would be really nice to see more emphasis on pro spreadsheet features.
Good app needs single, and multiple cell lock option 4/5
Some cells may have complex formulas that are totally OBLITERATED by accident because Numbers has no option to lock a single or multiple cells, it only lets you lock out the WHOLE spreadsheet--you can believe that.
Other than that this app is simply too useful for me and helps me keep track of data in an easy and intuitive manner...when I don't accidentally delete cells.
Pérdida de información constante 1/5
Llevo años intentando usar Numbers y siempre termino volviendo a crear las hojas en Google Sheets. Hojas de cálculo que desaparecen o archivos compartidos que se bloquean. Es increíble que nunca tenga ese tipo de problemas en Google y aquí una y otra vez es lo mismo.
Powerful and portable. I can work on my Mac and then keep making changes on the iPad or iPhone. Great set of formulas to do whatever I need.
I did employee schedule and it was all blank. I tried 5 times and it dose not work
Bare bones 2/5
They advertised the iPad Pro as a iPad that can do everything a computer does. Yet their own apps don’t support even half of their features on iPad. No conditional formatting, drop down menus, easy formula creation for me.
Answer me 5/5
Why is this terrible this app is great for putting everything I do into statistics
Could Not Be More Difficult To Use 1/5
This is, by a wide margin the most difficult spreadsheet app to use I have ever seen. Including the monstrosity from Lotus in the early '80s. Nothing is intuitive, everything is buried multiple layers underneath various poorly labeled buttons, pop-ups, and imbedded menus. I have been using spreadsheets for nearly 40 years, and I just spent two hours trying to add x-axis labels to a simple chart. AND WAS NOT ABLE TO DO SO!
