  • An Amazing App Mar 23, 2020

    By PricelessMe
    Love, love, love this app!!! It is amazing and dependable. I like that its offline and I can use it whereever I am, even when traveling. I use it for our family budget and to pay of large bills and credit cards. It allow me to adjust the payment amounts when I want to pay a bill off early. I list my dates by each payment and I can see exactly when I'll have a bill paid off. It's been a real asset to our family. I don't have to worry about my data being locked up until I buy or update the subscription like what happened with another app, because its free. It was such an inconvenience. But this app has proven its value time and time again. I also like how I can plug in my formulas to show the interest rate and declining balance of my credit cards. I highly recommend to everyone to use it. My sincerest thanks to the maker of this exceptional app!!!

    It's ok... Gotta be honest though. The inability to zoom in and out on my spread sheets makes using the app cumbersome. I will be switching to just using the Web Browser version where I have no issues with this. Adding this "feature" would greatly improve my experience with it. Not sure why it's not in here as that hasnt been a missing "feature" of spread sheet programs since the 90's haha.
  • Unable to Edit Shared Sheets May 20, 2019

    By Cristyjewelry
    I try to go as mobile as possible, because opening up a computer all the time sometimes is just too much of a hassle or takes way too much time for something that should be done so quickly, such as signing up for a meeting time. Whenever I try to edit a spreadsheet for something like signing up, there’s always an annoying pop-up that says I need to download the app in order to edit at all. And even when I already have it downloaded, I still have to press the only “accept” button on that pop-up, which says “get the app”. It takes me back to the app store, where I then have to press “open”, and opens up to the Google Sheets app, but the sheets I would be trying to edit wouldn’t automatically come up. Checking the “Shared with Me” tab doesn’t do anything, trying the process over again doesn’t do anything, and nor does completely closing the App Store or Google Sheets app then starting the process over again do anything. This practically makes the Sheets app useless for me, because this is pretty much the only reason I need it. When using Sheets, I’m usually just trying to open someone else’s Sheets page, which they linked somewhere, and edit it rather than creating one myself.

    For a mobile app it works ok. A lot more functional on my computer and iPad than my iPhone X. As powerful as my cell phone is, I expect a bit more. Make all the functions available. I use this primarily for my monthly budget and it is difficult to change the functions of a box when all you can do it add numbers and not enter more complex calculations for each box. That is my only complaint besides the usual crashing and instability issues. It could flow a little easier and have the calculations as a ready part of setting up the spreadsheet instead of reinventing the wheel so to speak. Make it intuitive so people with out an mba can manage their budget by setting this up for themselves. I have done this for many people and my hope is that they follow through with it, but if I’m having a difficult time, I imagine others that just use my template, probably just give up if they can’t make easy changes with the mobile version because it never dawns on them to go back to the computer to make them.
  • Getting There, But …. Mar 11, 2021

    My work uses sheets for all documentation and I WISH i could finally start using the iOS app for full functionality, but i can’t because of one issue that is not possible on iOS. For some of my work I use Cells for note taking, so seeing that i input a larg quantity of characters, I make edits all the time throughout the week. With the application, editing the cells shows a very small portion of whats in the cells. If i have 2 paragraphs of info in a cell, it takes FOREVER to “scroll” to the section i need to edit. This has completely turned me off of using the iOS application for any work input, only for viewing. The newest update got me excited, but then killed my excitement haha. Now when a cell is selected, there’s a pop up of the contents to view but only to view, to edit the cell, it goes back to the original way of editing. If there was a way to edit the contents within the pop up view of the contents, that would change everything. Please think about it!

    I have been using this app since I received my certificate through Coursera for Google Data Analytics. Part of my coursework involved learning about spreadsheet software - both Google Sheets, and Excel. Not everyone has access to Excel, and Google sheets is easy to use, fun, and free. No ads at all and it is linked to your Google account - which is secure in my perspective! I love that I can create multiple spreadsheets or a monthly budget and with the auto-save feature I am really happy!

    Free, easy to use, and able to share with others to edit/view. I use it to organize, plan/schedule, and collect information. I cannot speak to its ability to work with quantitative data (ie. numbers, graphs, stats, etc), which I mention only b/c I know some will seek this app to do just that. I used Excel in college when working with large data sets; I didn’t know about Sheets back then. If you are looking for a FREE & easy to use tool to help you get organized and structured in your day to day activities, whether that’s managing your home, your business, your ministry, or your social media platform, etc., you’ll enjoy & appreciate this app. It’s also great to use as an archive where you can collect resources, contact info, etc.

  • Two Gripes.. Apr 27, 2021

    Great app, but.. 1. I don’t like the new button you have to tap before you can start typing in a new cell. Previously, you could go to a new cell and just start typing. Not anymore.. well, you could, and I do it all the time, but, your time will be wasted because you didn’t tap the new edit button that is now a required step every time you go to a new cell. 2. The app reloads just about every time I come back to it. This may be a RAM management issue with the phone but I am using the 12 pro max and this is the only app this happens with in my experience. This wouldn’t normally be a big deal for me but it slows me down when I have to wait for it to reload, tap the sheet I was working in, and find my place within that sheet. This, all while I’m working against the clock, and trying to enter information as we go along. I would use something else but my customer uses this for their documentation.

  • Google Sheets for IPad - Fundamentally Flawed Dec 1, 2021

    By Darklink99
    Google Sheets and other programs like it are flexible, able to be used for multiple purpose across many different fields. As such Google Sheets for IPAD may work fine for you but for my job and how I use it I spend more time hitting roadblocks and having to open my computer to accomplish tasks than I should. It leads to the essential question of why even have an app if it will be missing so many core features and have many more that are broken or flawed. The most recent examples include freezing vertical columns doing the opposite of the intended function, the complete lack of in cell text formatting, the lack of advanced sorting features and the inability to open two windows of google sheets at the same time. These are just the broken or missing features that have interrupted my workflow today, I am sure that more will occur in the future. With an app this unfinished I would look to Excel or Apple’s Numbers as alternatives if my work didn’t rely on GSuite for the sharing functionality. If the only reason a user continues to use an app is being locked into the ecosystem, it is not a good app. If you are able avoid Google Sheets and all other Google apps to avoid getting trapped in their ecosystem, especially if you plan to try and use your IPAD as a main work device.

    The android/chromebook app is missing the PC menu. Without this menu nearly ALL options are difficult to find, and some are outright impossible! For example, there is no way to set a custom date format (I prefer mm/dd/yy for all dates, and leading zeros are an absolute requirement!). Support is impossible to access, and the Help is less than useful.

  • Are other reviewers using the same app as me? Dec 25, 2021

    By Bnieco
    UPDATE: I think it’s actually gotten worse. But what makes it ridiculously frustrating is that logging into the URL for sheets in a browser forces me to the app. Why would you want to force people to use such a horrible experience? I know the experience in the safari on ipad isn’t ideal but it’s exponentially better than the iOS Sheets app. Original review: I can’t imagine why anyone would review this positively unless maybe they’ve never used any spreadsheet program. Ever. Maybe not even a calculator. Excel at least feels like they know iPad exists. Sheets acts like all we want to do is view an occasional sheet from others. Menu bar disappears every time I edit a cell then reappears when I hit enter. Formatting options are hard to find. Entering formulas is dramatically different from the web app on PC or Mac. Ugh, I grow tired just thinking of typing out all the horrible this thing contains. Maybe people think it’s got a retro vibe..... 1985 retro...

    Half the time it won't open...times out and asks if you want to open in a browser. It's not an internet connection, opens in browser no problem (as well as other internet using apps working just fine). I'll use the app, then close it down. 5 minutes later I'll need to go back in for another edit, and it won't open.

    I'm having issues with this that I don't have on PC using a browser. Every so often this app removes the ability to edit my documents, saying I don't have permission, yet it registers that my Google account both has permission to edit and is the only account with those permissions. What is going on? I've never had these issues until a few months ago and it's just getting worse.

  • Poor functionality Feb 19, 2020

    By twoarmscollin
    I can use command-a to select all of the text in a cell, but I cannot use command-i to make text italic. I cannot select and edit text within a cell, only in the bar on the bottom, thus making it incredibly inefficient. For someone doing qualitative research without access to Nvivo, spreadsheets are an important tool. While sheets on laptops and desktops is a viable rival for excel, and google’s ability for teams to simultaneously edit sheets is unchallenged, the mobile app makes it nearly impossible for me to get my work accomplished using my tablet with keyboard attachment. Why lug around my laptop when I can bring my brand new tablet that handles everything else so well? Google - get the functionality of this app on par with the sheets browser experience. Do not recommend using this app for mobile. Stick to the browser, or use a different program entirely.

  • Google sheets rocks! Apr 29, 2018

    By Babu Sath
    Google sheets my excel for private use. It is very reliable and works well. Especially for using from multiple devices from multiple locations. From a functionality perspective one thing puts Google Sheets above excel is its support for Unicode making it work well for non-English data. Once disappointment to date has been that it is either matching or lagging Microsoft Excel mostly. I say this without claiming to be an expert who has used its entire functionality, so take that with a pinch of salt. I would like to see Google team taking us in to a new world of functionality and capability - for example, seamless working between documents, databases, multimedia, and presentations. I would be glad to talk to Google Office team, if interested.
  • Love this App!! Oct 3, 2017

    By BryanE63
    Love this App!! Very convenient and I can access it on any device!! I have had past experiences where I had other apps for a while and without any warning at all from the Developer, the app was no longer available or was not compatible with the newest software so this left me High and Dry!! Very frustrating when you have to re-do all the information over again and find the info from many different places!! So the only advice I can give to the Developer of the Apps is to please let the people know when your no longer going to have the App available for us to retrieve our information so we can at least store it somewhere else so it’s not completely lost and we have to start everything over.
  • Freaking Love It Oct 11, 2019

    By Archer of Nor
    I’m a bar manager and I use Google Sheets almost daily. I use it to do all of my liquor and beer orders (color coded, and some really nifty conditional formatting too). It makes all of my reps very happy with how organized it is! I also use it to do inventory on 3 bars and a huge storage area, profit margin sheets, employee phone lists etc... it’s incredibly useful to be able to pull up any information I need, immediately, on my phone. I used to do everything on Excel; printing all the pages out, writing all the counts down, going back into Excel to enter all the counts... Sheets let’s me do everything on my phone or iPad and autosums as I go. Not only does Sheets keep me nice and organized, it also makes orders and inventory go SO much faster.

    By USABlake
    This and sheets on the computer browser will frustrate some people a bit if they are used to Excel. But I find sheets and drive to be light years ahead of whatever Microsoft is cooking up to compete. I can’t live without mobile access to my spreadsheets anymore. And holy crap, collaboration will never be the same. Microsoft has nothing on google. I cringe when people share an xls spreadsheet back and forth. Lol. Especially when it’s shared through google drive. Seriously saw that. Wow. Nice try, but you missed the fact that there is a better way. And so, so much easier. And you can actually work together instead of checking to see if the other person has it opened and not saved.
  • Very good - but Google could make it super Jan 2, 2020

    By GoodOldMonkey
    This app has amazing capabilities, and a few silly defects. + You can share full-featured spreadsheets in real time. On my iPhone I can correct data right next to the cell my niece is editing on a Windows desktop hundreds of miles away. + Really powerful: even on the mobile version you can create SQL-like queries of spreadsheet or external data, and useful charts. + Super easy data input from Google forms for repetitive stuff. - Crashes pretty often. - Some major browser-version features — edit-triggered routines, for example, and modifying protection — aren’t available on the mobile version. - Doesn't tell you when it's still busy downloading or calculating. A big spreadsheet can take several minutes to load and calculate, and you may meanwhile jump to some wrong decisions. - Doesn't keep track of where you were when you reopen a workbook. If you were looking at row 3323 on Sheet Four, navigating back is a non-trivial pain in the tail.

  • Love the app except lack of mobile details Nov 13, 2018

    By Singoffpitch
    I love everything about the app except that it lacks the ability to access some of the settings that are available in the online version. I like to set cells to change color or configure running data based on what is entered and I can't adjust those settings in existing spreadsheets or add parameters to new sheets from the mobile app. Otherwise, I can do pretty much everything in the app I can do on the computer (and many things are easier from the app, which is why I'd really like full features available since I prefer using sheets from the app!!) and I'm a Google Sheets addict and president of the Sheets fan club! I've never had any problems with the app or lost data and it even saves my data automatically when I click out of the app without clicking the checkmark to save! Love Google Sheets!! 😁

  • Just needs to improve the interface dynamics. Jul 7, 2019

    By meu nickname
    The features are great for my usage (stock portfolio track), it feels easier and more intuitive than excel. But the usage experience for me is still not there yet. The touch interface/dynamics still feels like a low quality app. It would only pan either horizontally or vertically and not both at the same time. When one cell is selected I’m not able to change to other sheet pages (excel and numbers managed to do it without any problem). It feels underdeveloped when compared to apple numbers usability. When I’m checking my sheets on the iPhone the actual area is so small compared to the other two apps also. It has a a great potential, in my opinion it just needs some fine tuning for touch versions. Desktop browser version works perfectly.
  • Good, with exceptions. Sep 18, 2020

    By Tewithersaiyan
    This app suffers from the same problems afflicting other google apps on the mobile/tablet platform: not all of the original functions are available. I am a student who uses a 2020 iPad Pro, and the other day I ran into a problem on sheets when I discovered that I was unable to do very basic things such as create a function for data I’d input, or switch the values on the x and y axis of a graph. Overall, it’s a very polished and functional app, but it is brought down by the fact that in the very least there is no iPad version of the app with all the functions the PC version has. Would be 5 stars if not for this problem. Other apps, like Google Docs, have a similar problem.

I will be switching to just using the Web Browser version where I have no issues with this. Adding this "feature" would greatly improve my experience with it. Not sure why it's not in here as that hasnt been a missing "feature" of spread sheet programs since the 90's haha.
  • Unable to Edit Shared Sheets May 20, 2019

    By Cristyjewelry
    I try to go as mobile as possible, because opening up a computer all the time sometimes is just too much of a hassle or takes way too much time for something that should be done so quickly, such as signing up for a meeting time. Whenever I try to edit a spreadsheet for something like signing up, there’s always an annoying pop-up that says I need to download the app in order to edit at all. And even when I already have it downloaded, I still have to press the only “accept” button on that pop-up, which says “get the app”. It takes me back to the app store, where I then have to press “open”, and opens up to the Google Sheets app, but the sheets I would be trying to edit wouldn’t automatically come up. Checking the “Shared with Me” tab doesn’t do anything, trying the process over again doesn’t do anything, and nor does completely closing the App Store or Google Sheets app then starting the process over again do anything. This practically makes the Sheets app useless for me, because this is pretty much the only reason I need it. When using Sheets, I’m usually just trying to open someone else’s Sheets page, which they linked somewhere, and edit it rather than creating one myself.
  • Getting There, But …. Mar 11, 2021

    By Ryker X Gevaarlijk
    My work uses sheets for all documentation and I WISH i could finally start using the iOS app for full functionality, but i can’t because of one issue that is not possible on iOS. For some of my work I use Cells for note taking, so seeing that i input a larg quantity of characters, I make edits all the time throughout the week. With the application, editing the cells shows a very small portion of whats in the cells. If i have 2 paragraphs of info in a cell, it takes FOREVER to “scroll” to the section i need to edit. This has completely turned me off of using the iOS application for any work input, only for viewing. The newest update got me excited, but then killed my excitement haha. Now when a cell is selected, there’s a pop up of the contents to view but only to view, to edit the cell, it goes back to the original way of editing. If there was a way to edit the contents within the pop up view of the contents, that would change everything. Please think about it!

    Powerful. Could use more functionality to make it more compatible with similar software. Sometimes slow.
  • Two Gripes.. Apr 27, 2021

    Great app, but.. 1. I don’t like the new button you have to tap before you can start typing in a new cell. Previously, you could go to a new cell and just start typing. Not anymore.. well, you could, and I do it all the time, but, your time will be wasted because you didn’t tap the new edit button that is now a required step every time you go to a new cell. 2. The app reloads just about every time I come back to it. This may be a RAM management issue with the phone but I am using the 12 pro max and this is the only app this happens with in my experience. This wouldn’t normally be a big deal for me but it slows me down when I have to wait for it to reload, tap the sheet I was working in, and find my place within that sheet. This, all while I’m working against the clock, and trying to enter information as we go along. I would use something else but my customer uses this for their documentation.

    I do not see any way to establish the trend line equation. Google instructions tell me to open the spreadsheet on my computer- why ? I'm on my phone and perfectly functional, with the exception of the result of my data comparison. Excel being about data, this makes no sence.

    Yeah it's good instead of millions and millions and millions of untitled series that are way outside of the region that the chart was meant to be in into the values are all the way up to "1.00E+7" whenever making a chart from a table.

    Was working fine until yesterday afternoon. It's been glitching and clicking all over on and off the app whenever I open a file. I've tried clearing data and cache, working offline, uninstalling updates, reinstalled updates, restarted my phone multiple times.
  • Google Sheets for IPad - Fundamentally Flawed Dec 1, 2021

    By Darklink99
    Google Sheets and other programs like it are flexible, able to be used for multiple purpose across many different fields. As such Google Sheets for IPAD may work fine for you but for my job and how I use it I spend more time hitting roadblocks and having to open my computer to accomplish tasks than I should. It leads to the essential question of why even have an app if it will be missing so many core features and have many more that are broken or flawed. The most recent examples include freezing vertical columns doing the opposite of the intended function, the complete lack of in cell text formatting, the lack of advanced sorting features and the inability to open two windows of google sheets at the same time. These are just the broken or missing features that have interrupted my workflow today, I am sure that more will occur in the future. With an app this unfinished I would look to Excel or Apple’s Numbers as alternatives if my work didn’t rely on GSuite for the sharing functionality. If the only reason a user continues to use an app is being locked into the ecosystem, it is not a good app. If you are able avoid Google Sheets and all other Google apps to avoid getting trapped in their ecosystem, especially if you plan to try and use your IPAD as a main work device.
  • Are other reviewers using the same app as me? Dec 25, 2021

    By Bnieco
    UPDATE: I think it’s actually gotten worse. But what makes it ridiculously frustrating is that logging into the URL for sheets in a browser forces me to the app. Why would you want to force people to use such a horrible experience? I know the experience in the safari on ipad isn’t ideal but it’s exponentially better than the iOS Sheets app. Original review: I can’t imagine why anyone would review this positively unless maybe they’ve never used any spreadsheet program. Ever. Maybe not even a calculator. Excel at least feels like they know iPad exists. Sheets acts like all we want to do is view an occasional sheet from others. Menu bar disappears every time I edit a cell then reappears when I hit enter. Formatting options are hard to find. Entering formulas is dramatically different from the web app on PC or Mac. Ugh, I grow tired just thinking of typing out all the horrible this thing contains. Maybe people think it’s got a retro vibe..... 1985 retro...

    Half the time it won't open...times out and asks if you want to open in a browser. It's not an internet connection, opens in browser no problem (as well as other internet using apps working just fine). I'll use the app, then close it down. 5 minutes later I'll need to go back in for another edit, and it won't open.

    I'm having issues with this that I don't have on PC using a browser. Every so often this app removes the ability to edit my documents, saying I don't have permission, yet it registers that my Google account both has permission to edit and is the only account with those permissions. What is going on? I've never had these issues until a few months ago and it's just getting worse.
  • Poor functionality Feb 19, 2020

    By twoarmscollin
    I can use command-a to select all of the text in a cell, but I cannot use command-i to make text italic. I cannot select and edit text within a cell, only in the bar on the bottom, thus making it incredibly inefficient. For someone doing qualitative research without access to Nvivo, spreadsheets are an important tool. While sheets on laptops and desktops is a viable rival for excel, and google’s ability for teams to simultaneously edit sheets is unchallenged, the mobile app makes it nearly impossible for me to get my work accomplished using my tablet with keyboard attachment. Why lug around my laptop when I can bring my brand new tablet that handles everything else so well? Google - get the functionality of this app on par with the sheets browser experience. Do not recommend using this app for mobile. Stick to the browser, or use a different program entirely.

    Allows me to open the files but I cant do much other than update cells. I want to be able to edit charts. The options are poor in comparison to desktop. If I don't have a desktop computer, I cannot use sheets. That blows.

    The android/chromebook app is missing the PC menu. Without this menu nearly ALL options are difficult to find, and some are outright impossible! For example, there is no way to set a custom date format (I prefer mm/dd/yy for all dates, and leading zeros are an absolute requirement!). Support is impossible to access, and the Help is less than useful.

    No way to insert carriage returns in a cell. Not intuitive. Very cumbersome to interact with. No support

    Random weird problems that make it useless. Font color randomly will not change, words will not enter completely into certain cells. Could be awesome, but sadly unuseable on my device.

    Stuck in view only mode. Using Pixel 6 on Android 12 I seem to not be able to edit files on my phone quite often. It's not an access issue or file issue. It started as soon as I switched phones and makes Sheets completely unreliable.

    Worked well for a long time. Now when shortly after i open a sheet it says "sheets is not responding". Very frustrating while trying to edit a sheet when the app is " not responding" please fix asap. Thanks!
  • Almost useless, and web versionnot accessible with an ipad Nov 21, 2019

    By Hunt.tr04
    I use google sheets for experiments as i am a freshman, i bring my iPad to school almost always, its my computer substitute, when its lab day and we to graph the information, i dread as the app is useless, i cannot edit a graph to add a trend line, and googles “helpful”advice is to use the web version, funny enough you cannot access the web version without a work around in ios that takes 3 minutes, thats safari, not chrome, it is impossible on chrome, after opening the web version, it tries to make you use the app, and constantly giving you a pop off that its not supported, and not able to format. it becomes slow and laggy as well. My advice to google is to not advertise an app that doesn't have some of the simplest features such as adding an equation or a trend line to a graph. And don't have a help center filled with incorrect information
  • Doesn’t work with iPad and keyboard Jan 20, 2022

    By Omg piano
    Found a fix: use Sheet in Safari instead of the app :) Honestly just going to delete the app at this point. I can’t switch cells at all (tab, enter, even clicking on it) and be able to type at all in the new cell. It just ignores any keyboard inputs after moving to a new cell (arrow keys to move and any sort of typing). Would definitely not recommend using this app if you need to have something open while editing a spreadsheet. I have to have my catalogs open on a separate machine just to edit the spreadsheets without clicking multiple times every time I need to move to a new cell. None of the fixes I’ve seen online have worked, and most just talk about how an update was scheduled to fix it, but that was more than half a year ago and it still doesn’t work with fully updated apps and iOS.
  • This is truly pathetic May 3, 2019

    By snorkfire
    Is it really just me that sees a dog slow app? I copied this review’s title from my departing comment within my effort to create a stock tracking spreadsheet. In what turned out to be my second effort at exploring using Sheets I found enormous difficulty overcoming the very long hang times and delays, so left that comment to myself to remind me in case I ever try it again. Add to that the fact that the stock query is missing a dividend/yield function on stocks, and we have arrived at the bizarre. That’s quite a miss. And add to that the inability to query a closing price on a date without forcing an 5 cell array construct and we have a mess. Apple does this in one cell with one date reference, folks. Well, I hate the long hanging “Calculating” times in the Numbers app, but Sheets is little better there for letting me edit while it thinks, and quite a bit more limited in overall dogginess and limitations. Disappointed.
