  • Seamless Work, from any device Mar 26, 2022

    By Sjs6788
    I work in an industry that requires I always be available, in some way shape of form. This is not a complaint, just the way my industry works. Having all of my office applications and work in each application easily accessible from PC, tablet, and phone is a game changer for me and my work life balance. It is hard to give credit to an application for improving your overall well being, but with office I cannot give enough credit to the application. I no longer feel that I need to take my work PC and mobile Wi-Fi whenever I make a trip to see the family or go out of town. With the office app on my phone and iPad, I can just grab a device and go without having to worry if I’ll be able to access the documents I may need nor worry about formatting issues due to being on an iOS device. I don’t usually write reviews, but for those of us who really do need to be available just ‘in case’ at all times, the office app will give you back the feeling of freedom that you’re probably craving. Download the office app, sync your account, and leave the PC at the door when you are doing ‘you’ errands.

    I've used Excel for over 30 years. I find the current office (Android) version to be more than adequate for my needs. The program is laid out in such a manner. A new user will have a very easy learning curve, if they have not used a spreadsheet, before. Picture this: My first comuter had Excel. Makes me smile to think back how I learned the real deals in Excel with a Cassette tape and Questions on cards. Answer on the backside. It worked and it is still working for me at 86 years old.

    So, I love O365 and I use it for work nearly every day. While I’m a fan of the office app on my phone and find it easy to find things I’m looking for (or have opened recently), i can’t help but feel rather annoyed at the “mobile version” of the app on the iPad. I find myself daily checking the App Store for updates and looking for an update for iPad. If this app had a meaningful iPad user interface (that is, using the ENTIRE SCREEN), then this app would get 5 stars for me. Let’s get that iPad update!

    Pretty good, mostly. I do wish it would give options for account to look up my key for adding to another device, since I'm already paying for this service. I do believe that part of the purpose of this app is to be able to use it over multiple devices. Would like this to be made easier to set up on other devices without trying to sell me another subscription, which would not automatically give each device access to the same files.

    Love the tools, hate the layout. Long short, I love the quantity of tools the app has but on the other hand, I think the layout is overwhelming to a point where even simple things such as copy and paste are nearly impossible to accomplish. I can't even find those options after spending nearly 40 minutes. Again, love the tools. It's a powerhouse for mobile, it's just not designed intuitively for mobile.

    Office is the suite of Microsoft's well known, and most used, applications such as Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. Having all of these tools within one app is the best way to work with your files, whether for school, work, home, etc. and be able to move and edit files, while having the ability to easily convert the files when necessary, all within this one "suite" app 😀 Amd it really is one sweet app!

    Documents sync well usually between excel and word documents on my onedrive so the ability to read and edit them have been great. However, I can't open links from my word document. It claims that I don't have an app that can perform the task and I have multiple browsers installed... Hope it's fixed soon. Otherwise, it's been great for me so far.

    I regularly use dictation, both on my phone and through other software applications, such as Dragon Naturally Speaking. The microphone in the dictation mode of the Microsoft word office app has been exceedingly accurate thus far, more so than dragon for me. I have a speech impediment and motor impairment, and I find the user interface quite easy to use for manual corrections. I will update as I use it more.

    This is the best product Microsoft offers! It is the most efficient, effective way to produce written material, save it, and never lose it! I have been able to retain my writings through multiple devices, they wear out, get old, or even break, but my files are still there, all in one place, easy to print, download and share. I may not like Bill Gate's politics, but I admire Microsoft Office. I highly recommend. carolintallahassee

    The iPad version is adequate though it’s hard to tell if a document is auto-saving or not. When I tap the “back” button, thinking I’m going to the main menu, Outlook opens as if I’m sharing the newly edited document. I then find out the edited version has NOT been saved. Even more confusion ensues when I work on docs on my laptop. MS One Drive is completely useless. Every document appears to have a different “save” pathway- eg “OneDrive”, “OneDrive personal”, “OneDrive for business”, etc. Sometimes the web version of Office opens, sometimes the app opens. Nothing makes sense. I’m glad I my institution wasted their money on this and not myself... That being said, unfortunately I’m stuck using this garbage.

  • Constantly deletes hours of work Apr 25, 2022

    By Kirk1234
    I use on the iPad because i have to. I open excel files from iCloud or Dropbox, edit them for hours (clicking “save” constantly, or using “auto save”). The app says “saved, pending upload”. So I keep working. Then i exit the app to do something else. Hours later i pull up the file again in dropbox or iCloud, and BAM! NOTHING EFF-ING SAVES! Wasted hours of work! Happened to me 3x now! The answer, according to the guru’s online? Stop work when you want to save. Press the “back to dropbox” button or whatever it’s called. The file should upload to dropbox after a few seconds. Then reopen the file again. The “pending upload” message is gone under the save menu. It’s a lot of steps, takes way too much time, and if you miss a step, BAM, you’re eff’ed again.’ Steaming hot lazy Microsoft garbage. As usual. I’ve hated these guys since the 90’s. Just a crap company, and always has been. Eat S#$i! Microsoft. Cost me so much wasted time I just want to scream. Also, you can’t just use this app to replace the dropbox or iCloud app. Why? The file sorting and menus are atrocious. No sorting, filtering, or tagging files. So if you have hundreds, across dozens of folders and sub folders, this app is basically useless. Very very few customizing options too. Can’t say enough bad stuff about this app. And it’s all true.
  • Trash on IPad Nov 1, 2021

    By jiminhasjams
    I am a college student using Microsoft Office for essays and assignments. There are a lot of things that bug me about the app structure but my biggest complaint is the app’s constant lagging. Whenever I type on the app for a bit more than, say, 30 minutes, the app stalls to a halt. When it gets to that point, when I type, the letters come on the screen seconds after I type them in. And even when I try to close the app down and open the Doc, the app still stalls. Then, I resort to switching to the Word app (which does the same thing), and I just fall into a cycle of switching between apps. I have an 2021 IPad 12.9 Pro that I recently bought, so I know that my device isn’t the problem. I also don’t know why it takes so long for documents to save on the app. When I finish typing and go back to the Home Screen, the doc says that its still uploading onto OneDrive. When it comes down to this, I usually switch to Google Docs, and I never see the same problems I have with Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word. Please Microsoft, I want to use your apps, but I can’t deal with the constant stalling

    Can open and edit office files. However, there is constant syncing issue that would randomly lock files I am working on and then prevent me from editing the file on any device for a long time. And the app doesn't autosave files by default, even files on Onedrive, which is very weird, and there is no way for me to change the default. Finally, the Android app is not as powerful as the web app. I can do a lot more things on the web app, and I almost never had the issues mentioned above.
  • Disappointed Nov 9, 2021

    By alexisrose22543
    I really like this app. It’s very useful to have on my phone, as it allows me to do my work for college on the go. I have had one major issue with it. I spent four hours on an essay for English, and it was perfect. About 15 minutes before class, I was editing it just before I was going to print it. I had all the text highlighted, and I was just changing the paragraph spacing and font. I somehow hit the backspace and I lost all of the text. My phone buffered for a moment. I wasn’t panicking, at first. I hit the undo button, but nothing happened. I tried a couple more times, still nothing. A little bit of panic started to set in, but I was trying not to freak out. I went back to the paper’s history, and it hadn’t saved for hours. This essay was a big part of my grade, and it was all gone. Sure, I should have manually saved it, but it usually saves on it’s own. Moral of the story, save your work, because the app might not.
  • Not for real Editing work - not reliable Oct 9, 2021

    By Ksabry
    This app is not a replacement for separate office apps, word, excel and PowerPoint, it is nothing but a quick way to add and delete some data, other than that it would be very hard to create a complete document trying to use features like tables and objects and formatting etc. i used it on iPad Pro M1 yet its performance was bad and many features are missing. Also you will face a problem when sharing the document from a windows to iOS using this app, as the view of the document is different on both. Objects tends to move from its place and the whole formatting of the documents gets ruined. That is not the kind of quality that we were used to from Microsoft when it comes to office suite. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT better use the separate apps, yet still it is not as powerful or easy as on windows and that is a shameful strategy from Microsoft to not power up office on apple products.
  • No way to edit an plain text file Jun 21, 2022

    By Luq07
    One of the most annoying things about Office for IPad is the inability to open or edit a plain text file. Really? We are talking plain text with zero formatting. As an IT person, I often use notepad on my desktop since it saves your text without formatting. I use it for scripting and sometimes just saving rough notes. The problem is, there is no way to edit such a file on your iPad. If I’m away from my computer and need to share some script I wrote or some documentation I wrote, I can’t edit it and remove my rough notes. Even copying and pasting is difficult in OneDrive since it seems to open as some sort of table. Plus you can’t change the file extension from .txt to .docx on onedrive to allow Word to even see a text file. The only way to see it exist is when you attach it in word or share from onedrive. I’m so frustrated with this but I’m stuck since my company uses Microsoft and not Google.

    Any of these reviews above 2-3 stars are literally straight out of midnight infomercial "testimonials". This "app" is entirely useless from even the most basic of productivity angles. Its horribly unstable. It randomly closes files. Half the time it won't even open files and instead will just bring up the most recently opened file. It easily becomes unresponsive & glitchy. Simple things like copy and paste are nearly impossible. It has cluttered and entirely redundant UI features. MS quality 🤡
  • Phantom Editor Mucking About Aug 4, 2021

    By A3874
    A sync issue has happened three times now. I open a document saved to OneDrive on my iPad and start editing. I then switch to another app to look something up. I return to Office, only to be told that changes can’t be uploaded because someone else is editing the document. No one else is editing the document. I have opened it on only one device, and no other. And if someone else were, why is that a problem? What is the point of saving documents to the cloud if collaboration is impossible? If someone else if editing, figure that stuff out and sync the changes. So I close the document then click on the icon indicating a sync issue. I click on resolve, hoping I can merge the two conflicting copies. No such option is available. I have to manually copy the changes I made, discard them, and then paste them in. Wonderful.

    The PowerPoint is just too glitchy and unpredictable to recommend it to anyone. The text cursor keeps jumping between words as i type in a textbox making me overwrite previous words in that same textbox. It sometimes glitches when trying to insert a word from the autocomplete and just mixes words together and other random behavior. So frustrating to use. I expected more from Microsoft.
  • New Office app confusing in opened / created Word files Nov 20, 2020

    By Mark Verizon customer
    Since the installation of the new Office app, if I go to OneDrive on an iOS device and open a Word file or create a Word file, what interface shows up in the opened or created file isn’t Word app or a Word interface. Instead this “Office” app opens. It’s very confusing. The Office app interface is very basic, and even the font graphics are simplistic. Since I have discovered this quirk with the “Office” app, and since going to support didn’t give me an easy way to address the issue, I cannot rate this new Office app very high, only one star low. If I open just the Word app, it seems to work just fine. So today, to try and avoid the Office app doing this, since I already have Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps installed and working well on iOS devices, I removed the Office app and dropped my rating to one star.

    Used to make up lame reasons to hate MS. Despite not being deal breakers, all we're fixed.* The only ~real~ reason was price. But now, most services are free to some extent. Not only that, but at 7 bucks a month, you CAN afford office. When you include outlook, notes, onedrive (with storage), plus a fully featured copy for every device, it's a great deal. There are other office suites, but MS Office ≥ all of them. *Cloud infrastructure, Android compatibility, native Linux kernel in Windows!

I can even do more on powerpoint without having to take hours and hours of classes for Photoshop!! Excel has helped me for over 20 years to keep myself and my clients happy with simple organization. Word is everything! Learning to voice-to-text has been a life saver!

    I love the current setup with teams and 365 app integration. It is so nice to be able to login to Team and edit all of our team documents and share/edit things simultaneously, it just makes life so easy. I don’t know how I would work without all my Office applications. This is used mostly for my work account but I will never do without my personal 365 subscription either. Keep it up Microsoft, lets see a free update to that Windows 11!! 😉

  • Scribble Enabled = Five Stars Jun 11, 2022

    By Vezeran
    The only thing I think is really missing from this specific suite is Scribble. I love almost everything about this app. Having all the productivity apps in one easy-to-access spot is amazing and saves me a lot of time! I’m a writer, so MS Word is my stomping ground. I’ve used Word and Excel since before they added the Ribbon, and I’ve touched on a couple others, like PowerPoint, during that time. However, being able to use Scribble is one reason I bought an iPad and Apple Pencil. That it still doesn’t work *two years* after Scribble became a feature on iPadOS devices is disappointing and frustrating. Please add Scribble to MS Word and Excel!

    This app is amazing for writing essays on the go. I recently got the Magic Keyboard for my iPad and I’ve been using it for essays. My only issue is that I wish I could add my google drive as a location to save my files to. Everything is saved to my google drive and I prefer it over one drive. It’s a major pain having to save my files to the files app and then transfer it over to my google drive. (Honestly I wish the desktop version of word would allow you to add a google drive to a location you can save to, but this is a review about the iPad app so, whatever.)

    When you try to Save your file to OneDrive and it's full, and then you try to Save to either your device or another cloud medium, it doesn't give you the option to change it, per say. What I mean is, after saving to OneDrive the 1st time and wanting to save tge file a 2nd time, but in a different location (cell phone, google drive, etc.), it automatically gives you the OneDrive option as a default and it's absolutely annoying.

    The app is not intuitive. For me, I like privacy. And the app almost literally forces me to connect to my cloud accounts..... And sadly it doesn't have an easy way to delete files. Nor does it easily show if its a cloud file or something on my drive. (maybe have a different color for cloud files vs internal drive files. idk. I just use this app because word and excel are the standard norm. Wish this app was easier to use.

Finally, the Android app is not as powerful as the web app. I can do a lot more things on the web app, and I almost never had the issues mentioned above.

    I really like this app. It’s very useful to have on my phone, as it allows me to do my work for college on the go. I have had one major issue with it. I spent four hours on an essay for English, and it was perfect. About 15 minutes before class, I was editing it just before I was going to print it. I had all the text highlighted, and I was just changing the paragraph spacing and font. I somehow hit the backspace and I lost all of the text. My phone buffered for a moment. I wasn’t panicking, at first. I hit the undo button, but nothing happened. I tried a couple more times, still nothing. A little bit of panic started to set in, but I was trying not to freak out. I went back to the paper’s history, and it hadn’t saved for hours. This essay was a big part of my grade, and it was all gone. Sure, I should have manually saved it, but it usually saves on it’s own. Moral of the story, save your work, because the app might not.
  • Not for real Editing work - not reliable Oct 9, 2021

    By Ksabry
    This app is not a replacement for separate office apps, word, excel and PowerPoint, it is nothing but a quick way to add and delete some data, other than that it would be very hard to create a complete document trying to use features like tables and objects and formatting etc. i used it on iPad Pro M1 yet its performance was bad and many features are missing. Also you will face a problem when sharing the document from a windows to iOS using this app, as the view of the document is different on both. Objects tends to move from its place and the whole formatting of the documents gets ruined. That is not the kind of quality that we were used to from Microsoft when it comes to office suite. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT better use the separate apps, yet still it is not as powerful or easy as on windows and that is a shameful strategy from Microsoft to not power up office on apple products.
  • Phantom Editor Mucking About Aug 4, 2021

    A sync issue has happened three times now. I open a document saved to OneDrive on my iPad and start editing. I then switch to another app to look something up. I return to Office, only to be told that changes can’t be uploaded because someone else is editing the document. No one else is editing the document. I have opened it on only one device, and no other. And if someone else were, why is that a problem? What is the point of saving documents to the cloud if collaboration is impossible? If someone else if editing, figure that stuff out and sync the changes. So I close the document then click on the icon indicating a sync issue. I click on resolve, hoping I can merge the two conflicting copies. No such option is available. I have to manually copy the changes I made, discard them, and then paste them in. Wonderful.
  • Why isn’t this universal at start? May 9, 2020

    By Dan62103
    I’ve had an iPad since day 1, gen 1. I have waited ever since for Microsoft and Apple to meld their strengths and have a good workflow for office on IOS and cloud files. After reading about this app’s release I was hopeful this was the one that would become the solution. And then after downloading realized...it’s prioritized for phones and does the lame compatibility version for iPad. I don’t work in the tech industry, but would bet money that an analysis would show people using office on mobile devices are largely on tablets and less on phones. Are that many people really making presentations and excel files on phone screens? This needed to be a universal app or prioritized for iPads first and then have a phone version. Feels like a no brainer and failure for now for me. Hoping iPad prioritization comes soon.

    Closes documents with no warning. If you switch tabs to something else to get information. then it doesn't show the file you were just working on in the recent files page of the home screen. The default naming conventions of downloaded files make navigating and finding files a nightmare. Is it in device? Is it in storage? Where is it? I dont blame Microsoft entirely, but it's a nightmare to use for the simplest of tasks.
  • Call it “Office Lens Plus”? Feb 20, 2020

    By Apps as I see them
    The Office app for iOS as of February 2020 seems to be lacking a lot of the power promised in the various videos from Microsoft floating around. It looks like this app was rushed out before it was finished. One video shows the ability to create a PowerPoint from an outline, but try finding the “Create Outline” button in this version. Office Lens already has some great capabilities - such as scanning a whiteboard or making a PDF - and this app does those too. And while it will get those images or scans over into a Word, Excel, or PowerPoint document, that’s hardly bringing them all into one place in any easy way. I hope Microsoft will continue to develop this into what they’ve promised. But at this point, there’s not enough in the app, and what is there isn’t quite integrated yet.
  • If you love apps getting kicked out of memory you’ll love Office! Mar 15, 2021

    By LouisPiper
    This app gets jettisoned from memory more than any other app I can think of. I have games that I’ll swipe home, open safari, then go back to and they won’t have moved. This app? If I take my eyes off the screen it’s gone. Thankfully it saves everything but wow does it take time to watch it reload EVERY SINGLE TIME. Add that to the fact that this app seems to put images wherever it feels like in Word docs I wonder why I use it every single time I tap to open it. If I wasn’t required to use it I would hand write everything and send by carrier pigeon than use it. It is truly a terrible experience.
  • Broken iCloud integration Aug 18, 2021

    By Biox
    The latest update seems to know little about saving documents in the iPadOS/iOS/macOS Files app (iCloud storage). All on its own, Office moved a file I frequently modify from Files into iPad-local storage. No notice or warning was given—I just happened to notice 2 copies of the file present in Recents. One copy is the latest version and stored locally and can’t be migrated to Files. The other copy was a week old, from just before this Office update which makes claims about protecting personal documents from being saved in the cloud. Sheesh. How does a bug this bad get released, except that Microsoft doesn’t care much about Apple users?
  • Constantly deletes hours of work Apr 25, 2022

    By Kirk1234
    I use on the iPad because i have to. I open excel files from iCloud or Dropbox, edit them for hours (clicking “save” constantly, or using “auto save”). The app says “saved, pending upload”. So I keep working. Then i exit the app to do something else. Hours later i pull up the file again in dropbox or iCloud, and BAM! NOTHING EFF-ING SAVES! Wasted hours of work! Happened to me 3x now! The answer, according to the guru’s online? Stop work when you want to save. Press the “back to dropbox” button or whatever it’s called. The file should upload to dropbox after a few seconds. Then reopen the file again. The “pending upload” message is gone under the save menu. It’s a lot of steps, takes way too much time, and if you miss a step, BAM, you’re eff’ed again.’ Steaming hot lazy Microsoft garbage. As usual. I’ve hated these guys since the 90’s. Just a crap company, and always has been. Eat S#$i! Microsoft. Cost me so much wasted time I just want to scream. Also, you can’t just use this app to replace the dropbox or iCloud app. Why? The file sorting and menus are atrocious. No sorting, filtering, or tagging files. So if you have hundreds, across dozens of folders and sub folders, this app is basically useless. Very very few customizing options too. Can’t say enough bad stuff about this app. And it’s all true.
  • Trash on IPad Nov 1, 2021

    By jiminhasjams
    I am a college student using Microsoft Office for essays and assignments. There are a lot of things that bug me about the app structure but my biggest complaint is the app’s constant lagging. Whenever I type on the app for a bit more than, say, 30 minutes, the app stalls to a halt. When it gets to that point, when I type, the letters come on the screen seconds after I type them in. And even when I try to close the app down and open the Doc, the app still stalls. Then, I resort to switching to the Word app (which does the same thing), and I just fall into a cycle of switching between apps. I have an 2021 IPad 12.9 Pro that I recently bought, so I know that my device isn’t the problem. I also don’t know why it takes so long for documents to save on the app. When I finish typing and go back to the Home Screen, the doc says that its still uploading onto OneDrive. When it comes down to this, I usually switch to Google Docs, and I never see the same problems I have with Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word. Please Microsoft, I want to use your apps, but I can’t deal with the constant stalling
  • No way to edit an plain text file Jun 21, 2022

    By Luq07
    One of the most annoying things about Office for IPad is the inability to open or edit a plain text file. Really? We are talking plain text with zero formatting. As an IT person, I often use notepad on my desktop since it saves your text without formatting. I use it for scripting and sometimes just saving rough notes. The problem is, there is no way to edit such a file on your iPad. If I’m away from my computer and need to share some script I wrote or some documentation I wrote, I can’t edit it and remove my rough notes. Even copying and pasting is difficult in OneDrive since it seems to open as some sort of table. Plus you can’t change the file extension from .txt to .docx on onedrive to allow Word to even see a text file. The only way to see it exist is when you attach it in word or share from onedrive. I’m so frustrated with this but I’m stuck since my company uses Microsoft and not Google.

    Any of these reviews above 2-3 stars are literally straight out of midnight infomercial "testimonials". This "app" is entirely useless from even the most basic of productivity angles. Its horribly unstable. It randomly closes files. Half the time it won't even open files and instead will just bring up the most recently opened file. It easily becomes unresponsive & glitchy. Simple things like copy and paste are nearly impossible. It has cluttered and entirely redundant UI features. MS quality 🤡

    The PowerPoint is just too glitchy and unpredictable to recommend it to anyone. The text cursor keeps jumping between words as i type in a textbox making me overwrite previous words in that same textbox. It sometimes glitches when trying to insert a word from the autocomplete and just mixes words together and other random behavior. So frustrating to use. I expected more from Microsoft.
  • New Office app confusing in opened / created Word files Nov 20, 2020

    By Mark Verizon customer
    Since the installation of the new Office app, if I go to OneDrive on an iOS device and open a Word file or create a Word file, what interface shows up in the opened or created file isn’t Word app or a Word interface. Instead this “Office” app opens. It’s very confusing. The Office app interface is very basic, and even the font graphics are simplistic. Since I have discovered this quirk with the “Office” app, and since going to support didn’t give me an easy way to address the issue, I cannot rate this new Office app very high, only one star low. If I open just the Word app, it seems to work just fine. So today, to try and avoid the Office app doing this, since I already have Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps installed and working well on iOS devices, I removed the Office app and dropped my rating to one star.

    I've informed the developers that the app doesn't work on my device as it just freezes and stops responding. Their response: Your order is non refundable. You may use the app, as well as all in-app features and functionalities until the end of the current billing cycle. Your Premium license is associated to your account. How am I supposed to use the app if it doesn't work on my device? 🤔
  • What’s wrong with you? Corporate policies MDM are applied to personal accounts! Oct 15, 2021

    By PATRIKCZE
    I do not know what happened if that is fault of our corporate policy or Microsoft fail to implement MDM, or Apple fail to provide proper functionality in iOS 15 … but I do not understand why I’m blocked by our corporate policy everywhere means in all Microsoft applications. Whenever I would like to open document from my private Teams in word, excel, power point, I’m always failing with inaccessibility because for some reasons corporate policies are applied to my personal account. What the heck ! I can’t simple print nothing. How is that even possible. Aren’t all applications send boxes how Microsoft achieved this stupidity !? I don’t care who’s fault it is, just fix it asap! Totally useless app which leads me to use purely Apple products like Pages, Numbers, etc.
