    Works well overall. Impressed at how well they've translated spreadsheets to the mobile experience. Wish it wouldn't constantly change the order of the options in the context menus. There's also something wrong with how it chooses the numeric vs. alphabetic keyboards for each cell, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is.
  • 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.

    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.
  • It works ok Dec 16, 2017

    By jspowers21
    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

    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!

    Its okay enough, but it is missing some functionality that would make editing my spreadsheets alot easier and cleaner. One such as Text Clipping, Formatting cells for just Text or Integers, etc. I have things that would overlap into other cells, if I choose wrap, its makes the cell expand to unreadble proportions. THe option for Text CLippign exists on the desktop, but not on Mobile/Tablet. Not holding my breath though that things of osuch will ever be implemented.
  • Amazing but security May 20, 2022

    By Pia Cruzalegui
    Simple: my wish is to have an option to add another layer of security hence face recognition or setup of a password to some spreadsheets to limit access and privacy. I’ve been using and recommending the G suite. I absolutely love how practical it is. I can’t imagine a day without out it BUT two days ago I lost my iPhone and even though I locked and reported it lost through “find my phone” it was hours before I got it done and a couple of more to figure out and disassociate some apps, the G Drive included although there is no certainty that the Sheets and Docs app would disconnect. And because of this and the nature of some of the information in these docs is that an option to add hyper security and minimize access would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, the awesome and convenient G Drive makes workflow easy.

    If Google Sheets was not free, it would deserve four stars; but being as feature-rich as it is, AND it's free? It's pretty amazing. It's remarkably similar to Excel, which is great. It's compatible with Excel, which is also great. It automatically saves, which is more great. And it's free. It's simple to use, and has a professional look and feel to it. And the integration with other Google Apps and Extensions is very cool. Only real complaint: Chart options really suck on the mobile app.
  • My G Sheet helps my health & it’s FREE! Jun 24, 2022

    By DontEatApple
    I am a type 2 diabetic with glaucoma & hereditary high cholesterol. I made a “health” sheet to track and average my blood glucose as my meter only gives a 2 week average. An A1c averages for around 3 months & it made sense to me to track for a longer average. Since I am considered in “remission”, I would not qualify for a CGM (continuous glucose meter). I also added a column on my “ health” sheet to track blood pressure measurements which I keep an eye on because of the glaucoma. The cholesterol sheet calculates my triglyceride to HDL ratio. I can also update & view my G sheets from my phone, tablet or laptop regardless of OS. And it’s FREE! Excel was my all time favorite, but I no longer need all that power as I don’t work in an office anymore. Thanks to the folks at Google I have a great way to help maintain my health! Thumbs way up for me!

    Pretty good for on the go editing. Feedback: I strongly object to the removal of the "select range" option. When working on a smartphone screen, this is absolutely essential. Without it, I have to keep scrolling over and over, often picking up or losing unintended cells in my selection. Please, please restore the "Select Range" function. I also need to be able to open or import .csv files. It's very inconvenient to use a different app for this alone.

    Basic functions are not (easily) available. Not sure if I am just completely overlooking it but I cannot find the number formatting option anywhere. I have looked it up on google and the location google says it is, I have checked, and it is not there. Also, you cannot easily switch between tabs, you have to check the blue check at the top before switching between tabs in one sheet. Another issue is that I cannot open the same sheet in two separate windows. Please advise!
  • 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.

    Works ok when it works. Most of the time I when I open it for some reason it switches me to view only mode but only on one of my documents. I have access on my laptop but not phone. I have to uninstall and reinstall app to make it work. Does for a time or two then back to view only mode. Yes I'm logged into the right account and no...no one has changed permissions. Very frustrating

    Bug-ridden. I love the Google software. For the most part, its seemless simplicity is an ingenious unique selling proposition. Google sheets for mobile, however, has an Achilles heel. When editing a textbox, if the user scrolls down, you lose all text. There is no way to retrieve it again. After having this happen to a paragraph I was trying to write for the seventh time, I gave up. Fix this and the review will be changed.
  • 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...

    Use it for counting inventory at work. Bought a Galaxy tab a and it constantly crashes, freezes, lags and just doesn't update. It is kept up-to-date with proper updating of the software and has great signal. App works great on anyother device but this one. Please fix it so it's with in the compatable device list. Not this "this app may not be optimized for you device" bc that's very very frustrating.

    By Katie
    Mostly great. However, I'm extremely frustrated by the issue where my sheets will render as view only at least once a day, sometimes more. I have to uninstall and reinstall the updates every time to be able to edit my sheets again. I can't access my sheets without having the buggy update installed, either. This has been going on for a long time.

    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.
  • 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.

    By Nick Stoler
    In the last month or so it's begun getting out of sync. And, most crucially, that results in lost or corrupted data. I open a sheet in the app and edits I've made in Chrome don't show up. When I make updates in the app and I open it in Chrome, the earlier edits I made in Chrome are gone, or mixed up with the app edits. This is a critical problem that needs to be fixed.

  • No-cost, user-friendly, multi-purpose tool. May 22, 2020

    By Itmademerateit105
    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.
  • 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.

    With this app, there is no excuse to not keep track of your spending. Enter your balance plus or minus income or expenditures in one column, and put the date and description in the other column. Drag and highlight the two rows to get the sum or difference to know what your true money balance is. No more guesswork, surprise overdrawals, etc. If my numbers are different than what's on my bank app, I know exactly what is still pending and what checks haven't been acknowledged by the system yet. This is a quick yet efficient way to track your spending, and you can set it up so that it flows with your life. It's so easy that I'm now in the habit of logging an expenditure and photographing my receipt before I leave the store parking lot because it only takes a few seconds. Use your smartphone to actually do something smart for once, and keep your finances in check with the completely free Google Sheets app.
  • 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.

    Since tge update, this app no longer works for android, constantly says can't refresh and displays no information. It says the are bug fixes when in fact there is a new major bug. This app has been rendered useless. If you want to use this app with Android, you'll have to uninstall and then re-install the app with every use. Update: Major bug fixed. App is running smoothly again so far. When this app works, it is so useful. I use this app on a daily basis to get work done.
  • The future is here. May 22, 2018

    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.

    Works well overall. Impressed at how well they've translated spreadsheets to the mobile experience. Wish it wouldn't constantly change the order of the options in the context menus.

    By jspowers21
    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.

    It has its challenges compared to the original options on a desktop, laptop or chromebook. But on the fly it is super helpful. I am a teacher and travel between classrooms and I am a coach. It is great in situations where i need to edit something between classes. I use it all the time at swim meets when updating records on the fly. But as I said before I have struggled with some features, but it works fine to make quick changes and updates.

    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.
  • Missing a couple of features Nov 29, 2017

    By EDAAmanda
    Over all, it’s a really good app. It’s very convenient to have access to my spreadsheets on my phone, but I really wish the app had the same functionality with setting up equations as the desktop version does. It’s really annoying to have to enter my equation into each individual field and mark that I’m done before being able to move onto the next one. I’d like to be able to enter one, then click the corner and drag it into any additional fields I need. I am also displeased they took away requiring a passcode to enter the app. I have things in there I don’t want my daughter to see and she uses my phone sometimes. If it’s passcode protected, then I don’t have to worry.
  • Compatible with ease. Dec 2, 2017

    By Lobo325
    Needed an excel spreadsheet app and this is by far the better option at the moment. Unlike the other excel apps that you need to fork over money and yet have compatibility issues between the printer or even while using it, this one is quick and easy between devices. I use this for my clients for setting up their weekly workout schedule and emailing it without any hassle like crashing. Recently started using it for making “range-table” cards for F-Class long distance shooting at the range. Overall, I’m very pleased with the functionality. The only downside is that I wish I gotten this App sooner and had saved the money on the other mediocre version.
  • I really want to give it 5 stars Aug 24, 2019

    By bac2thaBasix
    As the title shows, I really do want to give this app 5 stars but there is one small thing I wish this app would do that it does but MS excel app does. It’s leaving the last excel spreadsheet open that you had when ever you change apps. Like if I pull open a template and then go to another app on my phone I have to go back to the home page in sheets, then click the sheets file I was just in, then wait for the file to open. In MS word I literally can input data, change apps then go back to excel and I am brought automatically back to the last cell that I had just entered data. If google sheets does that, I’ll be more than happy to give them 5 stars.
  • 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.

    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.
  • 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!

    By Will Reeves
    Its okay enough, but it is missing some functionality that would make editing my spreadsheets alot easier and cleaner. One such as Text Clipping, Formatting cells for just Text or Integers, etc. I have things that would overlap into other cells, if I choose wrap, its makes the cell expand to unreadble proportions. THe option for Text CLippign exists on the desktop, but not on Mobile/Tablet. Not holding my breath though that things of osuch will ever be implemented.
  • Two Gripes.. Apr 27, 2021

    By Seksay1
    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.
  • Nov 10, 2021

    By Chase E. Snarr
    It gets the job done. But it sure is a pain and lacks features I have come to view as basic. For example, formula references are difficult to update. It is easier to just manually type the references. Another example, there is no ability to refresh formulas. Instead the sheet updates on a schedule or based on changes to the sheet. Its okay and its free but it is not great and leaves a lot to be desired.
  • Mar 1, 2019

    By A Google user
    I recently kicked out WPS because every update deleted more and more features. I replaced it with Google Docs and Google Sheets. I would give a higher rating, but at present I'm still trying Google Sheets on to see what it's capabilities are. So far I'm quite pleased except in one thing: when I modify a sheet, it saves entirely new as opposed to saving as modified. This is a waste of memory space and a constant source of aggravation; searching thru many copies to locate the most recent mod.

    By Richard Neswold
    Decent spreadsheet with some powerful functionality (see the QUERY function!) The user interface could use a lot of improvement; some configuration settings are in the sidebar, some are in a pop-up menu and other are found in the upper-right menu. It makes it annoying to try to find an option. Also, Android implementations can't add or edit named ranges. Why?!
  • Good app with annoying issue May 27, 2022

    By Blue20thae
    Open an existing spreadsheet, make changes, click the check mark and then save the document. Go to my files and open the document that was just saved and it shows the document as before the changes were made. Go back to the app and the spreadsheet is correct. Open and close the app multiple times, save and delete and save multiple times. App shows correctly but saved file doesn’t. Then after about 5-6 attempts the file actually reflects the spreadsheet. Makes no sense. This is especially annoying when you’re trying to make quick changes and send the spreadsheet. I didn’t even realize this issue until I noticed the files I sent did not reflect the actual spreadsheet.
  • Great app, needs improvements May 11, 2022

    By angelweengz
    Please also add the option to “paste special” for copying only the formatting or only the values like the site has. PLEASE listen to suggestions! ------------------------------ Wonderful app. Great things. Genius idea! One thing is..... You CAN'T print/export only specific pages of a google sheets or excel document. You also can't specify landscape or portrait. Also, please allow someone who doesn't have a gmail email/account to be able to view the document (even if it's just in pdf form). Or maybe have the option to just save a JPEG and email that. That's a huge issue for me. ***Please add that option to choose the pages that will be exported. I'd really appreciate it.
  • Feb 15, 2022

    By Courtney Sturgeon
    Basic functions are not (easily) available. Not sure if I am just completely overlooking it but I cannot find the number formatting option anywhere. I have looked it up on google and the location google says it is, I have checked, and it is not there. Also, you cannot easily switch between tabs, you have to check the blue check at the top before switching between tabs in one sheet. Another issue is that I cannot open the same sheet in two separate windows. Please advise!
  • 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.

    Bug-ridden. I love the Google software. For the most part, its seemless simplicity is an ingenious unique selling proposition. Google sheets for mobile, however, has an Achilles heel. When editing a textbox, if the user scrolls down, you lose all text. There is no way to retrieve it again. After having this happen to a paragraph I was trying to write for the seventh time, I gave up. Fix this and the review will be changed.
  • 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...

    Use it for counting inventory at work. Bought a Galaxy tab a and it constantly crashes, freezes, lags and just doesn't update. It is kept up-to-date with proper updating of the software and has great signal. App works great on anyother device but this one. Please fix it so it's with in the compatable device list. Not this "this app may not be optimized for you device" bc that's very very frustrating.

    By Katie
    Mostly great. However, I'm extremely frustrated by the issue where my sheets will render as view only at least once a day, sometimes more. I have to uninstall and reinstall the updates every time to be able to edit my sheets again. I can't access my sheets without having the buggy update installed, either. This has been going on for a long time.
  • 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.
  • Jan 30, 2021

    By Nick Stoler
    In the last month or so it's begun getting out of sync. And, most crucially, that results in lost or corrupted data. I open a sheet in the app and edits I've made in Chrome don't show up. When I make updates in the app and I open it in Chrome, the earlier edits I made in Chrome are gone, or mixed up with the app edits. This is a critical problem that needs to be fixed.
  • Google sheet LOVES JUNE! Sep 25, 2021

    By Lindracula
    Update months later from below: same problems- always always always wants to load on June 12 everytime no matter what. Fancy to see it progress as the year moves on- same results! Ultimate frustration level as I am required to use this on a daily highly regular basis. Every single day this app doesn’t load and when it does it loads to a month ago and blank. I have to close the app and reopen it a minimum of 4-5 times every single day just to get a very easy part of my job done and here this app is the most difficult part. Its just as bad on my iPad now as my phone at loading- complete and utter junk. If I didn’t have to use this app I wouldn’t. Do better please! This is a newer iPhone and a brand new iPad Pro that I’m using this app on. Oi its frustrating!
  • Make like the web version Feb 11, 2021

    By plat-o-pus
    For experienced spreadsheet users, the app version of Sheets is really terrible. It would not allow you to use any keyboard shortcuts even if you own Apple’s Magic Keyboard. I also do not understand why it would not show the top drop down menu like the web version. This is a very trimmed version of the original and it is really painful to be productive while using it. I do not understand why it produces a lot of errors when using formulas such as GoogleFinance. In the App it would endlessly display “...getting data” while if I open the same file in Safari using web version of sheets it retrieves the data instantly. I deleted it and open Sheets inside Safari. You will be very thankful that it operates normal that way.

I have to uninstall and reinstall app to make it work. Does for a time or two then back to view only mode. Yes I'm logged into the right account and no...no one has changed permissions. Very frustrating

    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.
  • Aug 27, 2020

    By Orion Thompson
    Where do I even begin. This app had zero functionality of Google Sheets. All it can do is give you the ability to view things that you did on your computer on your phone. Attempting to do anything independent of your phone will result in a headache, shortly followed by your phone hitting the wall in a fit of rage. This app was inadequate in all regards. It was so bad that I then went and downloaded Excel hoping it would be better. It was better. -1/10 can not recommend.
  • 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.
  • Worst Google app Dec 21, 2018

    By Ericanii
    Nearly impossible to use. I use fairly large sheets to keep track of my projects. I was trying to update one today on my iPad and I had to re-enter the values on nearly every changed cell TWICE because either it would glitch or not type as I was typing. I also use a sheet that updates based on a sheet of a friend of mine's and in the sheet app it just DOESN'T work at all. I have to look at it in the browser. But you can't edit sheets in the browser on chrome for some reason??????? Drive site crashed like 5 times trying to just open a sheet on chrome so I can edit it. Sheet would not update with new values from my friends sheet in the app. I am fully engrained in the Google ecosystem for all my easy documentation storage but sheets on iPad is by far the WORST Google app I have ever used to the point I'm here complaining. It just doesn't work.
  • Months of data RUINED Dec 31, 2020

    By Nickickk
    Everything was working fine until I opened another app. When I switched back to sheets, the app restarted. I opened the spreadsheet file and half of my cells are mixed up and scrambled all together!!! I’ve never seen this before in my entire life! All my cells contains random info from other cells and my formulas are all ruined! I cannot undo or find a way to restore my spreadsheet! It’s been hours and I cannot find a solution! I don’t know what happened but I lost months of data!!! How am I supposed to trust an app that can ruin an extremely important file?! Absolutely scary!!! I am extremely upset and frustrated that my spreadsheet file became ruined for absolutely no reason!!! All I did was open another app, and switched back to sheets and my entire file is all mixed up and ruined!
  • It doesn’t work when it should Nov 22, 2019

    By ZharloMang
    I have been sent a google Sheet to edit with peers. The site constantly has the pop-up stating (get google sheets to make edits) or such. I have the app. And it it’s both impossible to open directly from the sheet, or opening it an internet browser doesn’t allow me to open it in sheets. Essentially I can access it without first downloading into my phone, then re-opening. It also does not show up in my recent history. I would say this is exactly what the app needs to do for a mobile app, is cross opening or at least for the option to open in Sheets is available. It isn’t. At the very least it should be able to know I have the app instead of advertising to me to download, and open up the app itself, instead of the App Store. So poor in the final product’s function.
  • Worst app ever! Dec 15, 2018

    By KernNBurn
    Google sheets is the worst app ever! My life was easy until I downloaded google sheets. Not only does it mess up the split window on my iPad Pro, it even messed up google drive. Using google sheets is the equivalent of putting another hole in my head! The app it works worst with is google drive! How does that make sense? Google drive is easily navigated until sheets or other apps are also introduced, then navigating them becomes less discernible than interstate spaghetti bowls. Google sheets is so horrible I’m going to ditch google drive and every other app google offers. All any of them do is get in the way! Google maps is the second worst! Wait, I forgot about Chrome, what a computer overloading pile of dog crap! The world will be a better place when google is removed from it!
