    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.
  • 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.

    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.
  • 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!

  • 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.

    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.
  • 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.

  • 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!! 😁

    This is a nightmare to try and make work on mobile, you have extremely limited options with what you can do with the cells and forget organizing things via images, you won't be able to copy or paste them, you just have the option to delete or move the image so you have to add a new image any time you plan on using a copy of the same one.

    Sheets should not open in a separate window!!! It makes multitasking with the app impossible!! Which limits the amount if ways the app can be used. Meaning people use it less. I'm on of those people and am sure I'm not alone. Sheets is a productive tool. Multitasking windows on mobile is also a multitasking tool. So it might be a good idea to integrate the applications functionality to be more compatible with the way user use the app. 🙃 obviously.

    Tried to use this to keep track of my finances, since I just got a Debit Card today. Every time I typed in an amount of cash, my keyboard would switch to only numbers for that specific slot and would NOT turn back. It was extremely frustrating. I understand what it is doing, but please fix that so I can choose whether to type normally or with the number keyboard, because I could not change it in any way. The app is still mostly useful, but that 1 thing is the reason I won't be using this.

  • 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.

  • 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

    piece of junk keeps putting me in view only mode even though I'm the owner of the document and it's set to be available offline. Makes no sense and I don't have time to troubleshoot it every time it decides to revoke editing from me, my work doesn't give me time for it. Might be forced to pay for office just because sheets keeps acting up.

  • 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.
  • 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.

    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 way it integrates the work with others. Also very simple to use and share with other people. Only thing it lacks is that when it prints with iPad it does not print accurately as it appears on the screen. WYSIWYG rendering is still in development in my opinion for printing. However, it is still an excellent alternative to Microsoft products and the gap is coming very close to the giant in the history of document making. Thank you so much for making this available and affordable for everyone~~!

  • 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.

    By Victor M
    The Android version of Sheets is pretty good, has ~85% of the features I would want compared to Excel. One important one missing is: Conditional Formatting should allow custom formulas that can insert conditional text or symbols based on condition such as (in plain language)- A1:A10 is a range of # between -1and 1 If A1:A10 is Greater than Zero, then insert "+" symbol before value. Or If A1:A10 is not empty and contains a number, insert text "ETH" after value. Please offer this option. Thx
  • 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 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.
  • Always Room For Improvement, but... Dec 6, 2018

    By BudgetWise101
    I’ve been using Google Sheets for years. I’m not an absolute expert but I’ve been able to create a comprehensive Google Sheets financial workbook to chart my family and business finances as well as a product inventory workbook. My greatest of challenges has to do with knowing how to use Google Sheets effectively on different devices. I work with them on my messed up Pixel XL phone (that keeps rebooting daily), iPhones, iPads (large and small), and my Windows desktop. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find tutorials to assist me in accomplishing functions for my product inventory workbook that I see others achieving. If you know of resources that would help certainly let me know.

My wife is also disabled, I cannot spend money I don’t have , I’m an ole country boy in Tennessee and I had pride up until all money was gone and eating canned corn only for supper and had to swallow my pride and beg for food, so don’t lecture me about a budget, you’re eating lobsters, steaks and shrimp, drinking wine and I’m eating wild rabbits, squirrels and white tail deer.
  • 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.

    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.
  • 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.

    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.
  • 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!

    Keeps crashing whenever I insert an image. I also wish that it had all of the features that the desktop version has.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    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 like the app a lot but I have to Ding it a couple starts because it lacks a very specific functionality. I would really appreciate it if Google integrated copy and paste of images in their mobile Google sheets application. Please integrate a way to do that in future updates of this application that would make my day.
  • Wish I could edit from links people send me Mar 17, 2020

    By micste6643
    I commonly will be sent a link to google sheets from someone and when I select it, it’s goes to a read-only view in a browser saying that I should open it in the app to edit. When I follow the given links to download/open the app, it doesn’t take me to the sheet that I originally linked from. In addition, there is no easy way to find a link to an editable sheet. Seems to defeat the purpose of having google sheet links and my ability to collaborate with others. When you finally can get into the app and edit a sheet, it’s a good product. Just awful for any sort of mobile use without being able to share easily.

    By Lillian Bobo
    Tried to use this to keep track of my finances, since I just got a Debit Card today. Every time I typed in an amount of cash, my keyboard would switch to only numbers for that specific slot and would NOT turn back. It was extremely frustrating. I understand what it is doing, but please fix that so I can choose whether to type normally or with the number keyboard, because I could not change it in any way. The app is still mostly useful, but that 1 thing is the reason I won't be using this.
  • Nov 15, 2021

    By George Fesmire
    When it's working it's about as good as you can expect a spreadsheet app to work on mobile. Unfortunately, it locks me out of editing my own sheet multiple times a day. I have to reinstall the app every couple hours to force it to recognize me as logged in.
  • 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.

    piece of junk keeps putting me in view only mode even though I'm the owner of the document and it's set to be available offline. Makes no sense and I don't have time to troubleshoot it every time it decides to revoke editing from me, my work doesn't give me time for it. Might be forced to pay for office just because sheets keeps acting up.

    I have one document I edit in this app and do so daily. I have to remove and then reinstall the app every couple of days because it will get stuck in "view only" mode even though I am the sole editor.
  • 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.
  • Crash Jul 1, 2020

    By timzter
    Alarmy has been unstable lately. A couple of weeks ago, the alarm did not go off at all. Today, the alarm went off but tapping on the notification to get into the app to perform the mission to turn the alarm off, the app crashed. When I then tapped the app's icon to launch it, it crashed again. About the 3rd attempt to launch it, it did launch, but by now, time has elapsed so that it didn't force me to perform the mission. Consequently today's alarm is treated as though it never happened, evidenced by the missing entry in the History. The most basic function of the app must not fail, otherwise this app is useless. I have been using this app for over a year now. But lately it has been unstable and performing unreliably.
  • Still a "baby version" of the web app Sep 27, 2020

    By iPad4 user
    Google, PLEASE start taking iPad seriously. My company does everything in G Suite and your iPad apps lack so much functionality compared to their web versions that they are like having one hand tied to your back. Take a note how Apple or Microsoft does their office apps on iPad and start following. Examples: Many functions that exist in web version are just missing from app - case: you cannot edit graph set to occupy full tab in Sheets. There is no way to edit multiple documents side by side. Also, make it possible to open the documents in Safari when you have multiple user accounts. Now only way for preventing app from hijacking url is to by hand add /u/1 in the the right spot.
  • Crashes Feb 9, 2021

    By Yofi Grey
    Crashes every time I open it, every time, on iPad or on iPhone. I think it just can’t handle the array formulas or charts, or other complex tasks that I usually perform in Google Sheets. Which, honestly, is just about every spreadsheet I make. More to the point, you can no longer access google sheets online from iPad either, meaning spreadsheet work on this machine is totally out of the question unless I wish to go through the ridiculous tedium of using teamviewer or some such to control my PC. No, thank you. I’m really hoping in the future, especially with the whole “your next computer might be an iPad” campaign that apple has been doing, we’ll see a fully functional .xls program for iPad.

    This is a nightmare to try and make work on mobile, you have extremely limited options with what you can do with the cells and forget organizing things via images, you won't be able to copy or paste them, you just have the option to delete or move the image so you have to add a new image any time you plan on using a copy of the same one.

    By Mark Brown
    Sheets should not open in a separate window!!! It makes multitasking with the app impossible!! Which limits the amount if ways the app can be used. Meaning people use it less. I'm on of those people and am sure I'm not alone. Sheets is a productive tool. Multitasking windows on mobile is also a multitasking tool. So it might be a good idea to integrate the applications functionality to be more compatible with the way user use the app. 🙃 obviously.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
