  • 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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

  • 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.

    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.
  • 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
  • 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.

    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.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.

    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.

  • 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!
  • Great for College Dec 26, 2021

    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.)
  • Microsoft Office Application Jul 30, 2020

    By NewJack Sixty
    The app is great; but limited. The pandemic locked me out of university, community college, and public library computer labs which put a cramp in me posting on my Facebook page. I wondered if Microsoft had an Office App in the App Store? To my surprise; there was! The App allowed me to continue posting from my IPhone SE; which have its difficulties. I yet, continued on. My problems were the inflexibility of the app to work on the small surface of my iPhone. Frustrating as it is, I continue to use it, the App gets the job done; which is a plus!!!
  • So far so good, but... Aug 4, 2020

    Would be even better if (A) there was a privacy option that allows users to set a password/pin, or use Touch ID; and (B) if there were better integration between this and cloud provider apps such that each app could be protected with a password while also allowing the user to open documents from any cloud app via Office as a centralized point. Right now password protection for iOS OneDrive, Google Drive, etc. has to be disabled to open and edit documents.

Reopen the original. It can be great!
  • Good app, just missing a few features that would be helpful Mar 18, 2022

    By jonn316
    Overall the Office app is well thought out, though it would be very helpful for my use case to have the option to Insert images from other places than just the Photos app, and to be able to use position options on those images.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The system was working great until recently when I began confronting issues with Word which is the one I use the most. I wrote to Microsoft and after providing them all the facts and photos about the issue I was told I had to contact the App Designer and provided me instructions about how to do so. After going through an automated system which didn’t provide a solution to my issue I was able to leave a message. So far I haven’t received any type of response. It’s a pity to have such a good system doesn’t have any type of support when you have an issue
  • No POP. No real-time support. No sync across platforms. Mar 12, 2021

    By YSS1254
    I will start with support. If you have an issue, don’t count on a real-time chat. What!? No there is no real-time chat in the support function and the support options are limited if you try any of the other support options. I have never seen a chat option that does not have real-time responses. Unacceptable. You cannot use POP with this app. It only allows IMAP which means if you have your own domain and domain email, you can Ouse it here. Not very helpful for businesses—especially a sole proprietor who has no need for exchange. I have spent hours (maybe days) trying to find a configuration that works for me. I have Office365 as well as the individual apps on my desktop. Surprisingly the desktop apps do not sync with the cloud base accounts. The galling thing is that you have to pay for this fragmented and inflexible series of product. Moving on to find another choice.
  • limited benefits... Jan 21, 2021

    By josey4628
    While this takes up less memory on my device, it doesn’t feel like it makes things easier or faster when using Office. If I have individual apps on my home screen, I can start the needed workflow faster than opening Office then looking for Word or Excel. Also a true iPad version is needed for me to get meaningful work done. I can zoom in on my iPad, but lots of screen space is wasted, and again, there is no advantage than using the individual iPad versions of MS Office.
  • This would be a 4 or 5 Jun 20, 2022

    By Bsh3
    This would be a 4 if it would automatically save where you ask it to save, so when you go to upload your document it will upload. It would be a 5 if it would be the same as it is on windows so you wouls not have to have a windows computer and an iPad. Also if the iPad would talk with the Mac book. But they do not communicate even being on the same network and the same account. Not a happy paid customer.
  • Lag in typing Sep 4, 2021

    By trapzed
    After a hour of working (or sometimes less time) the program starts to be 2-3 words behind what I am typing or adds extra spaces, a period and uppercase letters to the middle of my sentences. Then deletes more than I want it to. It is very frustrating. I have to completely close the app and re-open my paper before it starts working properly. I have had to do this sometimes 3-4 times in a hour. My IPad is bran new and completely updated.

    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.
  • 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.
  • 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?
  • Hard to edit Mar 28, 2022

    By cbott772
    I am currently a grad student and I am often unable to edit documents made by my professors. Many of them put in drop down options within their documents and I am unable to see or select any options. If parts of the document are locked so that I can only fill in specific parts, I am unable to edit the document at all. I have only been able to edit these documents on an actual computer with the full program. The entire reason for the app is so that we can fully edit documents which is impossible. I’m very frustrated with this app and it’s programming.
  • 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

    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.
  • 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 🤡
  • 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.

Same problem. The idea of a web/cloud based app is universal access. Its just not true for the EXCEL portion. WORD and PPT appear unaffected but I am very disappointed in the EXCEL portion.
  • Bug Renders Most Features Virtually Inoperable Jun 15, 2022

    By FascistAppHater
    I cant believe this is for sale (Microsoft 365 Business Subscription for iPAD / Pro). I had these issues with the free version, but not the individual subscription for Word. Microsoft knowingly markets, with heavy sales, a defective product. FYI it selects text it should not & places the cursor where it should not go (Word especially but not exclusively). I have to toggle between 2 word processing apps to get anything done. Worse, the issues extend to other apps, including Excel. It actually partially corrupted some of my Excel documents. Using Excel on the iPAD is painful too, not just Word; it can’t even extend the length of a line. People use iPAD for accessibility reasons & it is a disservice to them.
