  • Too much flash and too little standard features Apr 5, 2019

    By Phoibos
    I really do like having PowerPoint (and the rest of the office suite) on my phone and my iPad. And there’s a lot I can do on them to edit a presentation. But while Microsoft keeps adding pretty things, there are very basic functions that are missing, making it sometimes impossible to use this in a work environment. My currently biggest beefs: 1. No ability to select and copy/move/delete multiple slides. A slide sorter would be nice for doing that but I’d just go with the ability to do it in the existing interface. But moving slides from one presentation to another is just too painful if you have to do it one slide at a time. 2. Missing highlighting option. Not because I can’t highlight text (would be nice but I can do without that) but because I can’t get rid of highlighting someone else put in a slide (using a different version of PowerPoint). This is absolutely annoying because there is NO workaround. There are other, smaller user interface issues, but they are annoying, not insurmountable. In general, for most purposes, this is a good app. Just beware that it is missing features that you are used to from the desktop version.

  • PowerPoint! 😁 Jun 18, 2020

    By Lamorena624
    I think using PowerPoint in elementary school really comes in handy! I like making presentations on my mom’s computer, then printing it out, and then putting it on display in my school’s library. Then I start making more and more. But the reason why I only put three stars to rate this app is because it’s hard to pull up the keyboard when you do your presentations on the iPad, and I don’t know why you have to sign in 😒 to save, edit, or do more! Plus, I really don’t wanna use my mom’s email account to sign in, because what if someone tries to steal it and find her 😢? What would be best is to sign in by using a nickname and any password like in Roblox. Now that would be easy! (Especially for kids! 😆) I really hope there would be some changes to Microsoft PowerPoint to make it better!

    I’m using Powerpoint mobile to record teaching screencasts and find it very useful. ONE SUGGESTION: Could you add different colored pens and highlighters directly to the quick access bar at the top in presentation mode? When I tap to change color, that appears on my screen. If it were simply in the bar at the top and didn’t drop down, then I could simply crop that part of the video before I post it. I’m guessing there are others who would be interested in a similar feature. Thanks!

  • Good but wish I didn’t run in to so many dead ends Apr 17, 2018

    By Igiveadam
    60% of the time, it does what I need, but there are some basic functionalities that are just missing and it doesn’t make sense why. You can’t search or replace copy in a presentation. Forget about copying multiple slides from one presentation to another (you have to close your presentation, open the one you need slides from, copy a single slide, close that presentation, open the first again, copy it in, and then repeat that process for every slide you need to copy in! Come on!). Honestly, at some times it feels like Microsoft is just messing with Apple users. “Fine we’ll give you our software for iPads but good luck getting anything done! Should have bought a surface!”

  • Mostly good, room for improvement Oct 15, 2018

    By Shiloh Graves
    This app is mostly good, but I have encountered an error when taking notes in presentation mode. Sometimes I the ability to swipe between slides goes away and every stroke I make to attempt to do so just puts ink on the slide. It often takes many attempts to get the functionality bar to drop down from the top so that I can exit and re-enter presentation mode, which then usually fixes the problem for a time. In general, I think Microsoft could improve the functionality of the PowerPoint app to include the features of OneNote within a ppt presentation format and do away with one note altogether, thus eliminating the need to export ppts into one note.

  • Missing basic functions, hard to navigate Jul 21, 2020

    By Alphadogtucker
    The app has most of the formatting functions you’d expect, but what good are they if you cannot do basic editing? - To cut or copy text, you have to use a search function and type in “cut” or “copy.” But once you have text in the buffer, there’s no Paste function, not even using the search! Unlike most apps, press-and-hold only brings up a magnifying glass. - The auto zoom function has two degrees: whole page, where you cannot edit text, and zoomed in, where you can edit text but can only can see the left half or right half of the page. If the cursor is at one end of a line and you want to move the cursor to the other end of a line, you have to Zoom out and then zoom back in. - You’ll get tired of the above flaws very quickly. So I added a text editor app to create the text and then copy it into PowerPoint. Then I tore my hair out for hours, looking for a way to paste the text into PowerPoint for final formatting. If the vital cut, copy, and paste functions exist, they’re hidden better than Jimmy Hoffa’s body. - My advice: find another app unless the text in your slides is extremely simple.

  • New update is not an improvement Oct 10, 2017

    By Deezey311
    The new update is a huge down grade. You now get glittery pens - but functionality has been lost. I used to be able to shrink the size of the powerpoint slides and type in the note section along side - which was carried throughout the powerpoint file. Now every time I switch a slide, it is MAXIMIZED to the largest size possible - and I have to re-shrink it down again and again. Even worse, the slide can no longer be moved to the side to accommodate the note space so that you can view the slide and notes fully and simultaneously side-by-side. Not only that, but every time I minimize the application to jump on safari powerpoint restarts completely, and I lose my place in the slides. These complaints may not seem like a huge deal, but for someone who is in PA school and sits through 6 hour lectures, these are huge disappointments and annoyances. I’ve used powerpoint since I began college 6 years ago, but I will be using another app if these problems aren’t fixed soon.

  • Glaring flaw Dec 5, 2018

    By The Biker
    I use PowerPoint on my PC and iPad, with the files I edit sitting in my iCloud Drive. I rehearsed an early draft of my presentation on my iPad then spent several days working on my presentation on my PC. I then opened up PowerPoint on my iPad and it overwrote the version of my presentation saved by my PC to iCloud, without warning, with the old version I’d opened days before on my iPad. I lost several days of work due to the bizarre auto save feature. If I’d waited to put the presentation on my iPad until the morning of my presentation I would have nothing to show after it overwrote the most recent version. Why PowerPoint would auto save when there’s a more recent time stamp on the system file is beyond me. This is a fatal flaw that makes this program one star to me. Otherwise it’s a great app, but I could have lost my job due to the overwrite so its hard to recommend this app to anyone working on presentations that matter.

  • Corrupted File Aug 12, 2018

    By Axnacion541
    I had a very important presentation to make and at the last minute there was an issue saving it and it got severely corrupted apparently. It hasn't opened since. This is such a shame and now I understand why Microsoft and Apple are so reluctant to fuse together for projects such as this. It's a complete disaster; an utter failure of the highest regard. One would expect more of not one, but two multi-billion dollar companies, allegedly attempting to (re)design a program which has already been on the market for over a decade. Seriously, it is as if a novice, trainee student from a back-alley detention center in Detroit was hired to design this app for a net sum of thirty cents. A disgrace. Additionally, some of the formats for inserted pictures actually reduce the quality of the photos themselves. This is also a problem with the PC version. I'm glad to be able to witness the headway Microsoft has made towards addressing these deficiencies. Or, perhaps lack thereof.

  • What happened with the latest version?? Aug 28, 2018

    By Bdawgno1
    My slide show keeps blurring slides and crashing after showing few slides. Up until your recent update, the app has been working perfectly on my iPad Pro (12.7 inch model). With the last update, I cannot use this app because of not only what I described above, but also the app freezes. Typically happens after swiping (with or without slide show) after 10-15 slides into the presentation. I’m running latest iOS 11 on my iPad. However, the app works fine from my iPhone X (running beta iOS 12, beta 8). Can you please fix this issue so I can rate this app 5 stars again? This is with version 2.16.1 (your latest version available). I have full Microsoft yearly membership for editing PPT, XLS, DOC files via the apps. Dear developer: feel free to email me if you need screenshots. I’ve tried this on several different slide decks from iPad. Same results unfortunately.

  • OneDrive Rocks! Jan 26, 2019

    By WFPB eye doc
    I actively use five devices, and four are portable. Four from Apple, the fifth is a Windows device. Being able to grab any device at any time and add a new thought to a presentation is quite the luxury, and previously many of those transient thoughts were lost. Navigating the iPad versions was a bit of a puzzle but I finally found all the functionality that I had learned how to use on my big computers. Having it is easy to edit and share presentations saves a lot of pre-presentation stress. Philip Paden WFPB eye doc

  • works pretty well Nov 10, 2019

    By Sir Jeff of Lee
    It works similar to editing PowerPoint in a Teams site. Much functionality is missing, but you can get the basic job done. One thing that doesn't work on the iPad, for me, is that when I select text, I no longer get the pop up menu (e.g. select, select all, copy, paste, etc) this is VERY inconvenient. I have a couple work arounds for some of those elements, but it forces me to have to jump through several steps to do a simple action. This used to work, and then on a recent app upgrade, the menu disappeared. Hope I'm not the only one and they can fix this pretty major bug.

  • Issues with saving to iPad in most recent update May 23, 2019

    By _willknight
    There’s a bug with the new update. When trying to save items to my iPad, I have to save the item, close out the app as the app freezes, re-open the app, save the item again in which the option to replace the item comes up since it’s already been saved as a zero kb empty item, and when I replace it this seems to bypass the glitch. It’s been like this for weeks. Figured it would have been fixed by now. I didn’t have this issue prior to this update. Not the end of the world, but very annoying for a grad student who has new PowerPoint lectures to save each day.

  • Not nearly the functionality as it should have on iPad!! Dec 5, 2017

    By Katyb113
    I’m really disappointed by this app. First of all I have trouble working with large ppts that I’ve saved to Dropbox. I often get a notice that I “no longer have access to the file” and have to save a copy...which then doesn’t open. So sometimes I’m just screwed. This is frustrating. Further, there is no timing or recording option in the “view slide show” tab. You can’t select multiple objects at once, the lasso select tool doesn’t work for me, and it’s very hard to move around on the slide. Maybe I’m just not used to it, but it doesn’t have nearly the level of functionality as the full version on a Mac. So frustrating because I would love to edit, save, and practice my presentations on the go. This is a major reason why I bought an iPad.

  • Paid version needs feature parity with PowerPoint Online Mar 19, 2019

    By JustinRJackson
    Right now the iOS version (even paid) is pretty weak at best. While I can review the file and look at it, only the most basic of functionality is carried over. Things like SmartArt are a constant thing I need to edit which is completely unavailable in the iOS version. What’s more, is while it is available in PPT Online, if you have the iOS version installed, trying to launch a PPT from any other program (Teams, OneDrive, even the browser) simply loads the iOS version. In order to do basic editing of even slightly more robust things like SmartArt requires me to constantly uninstall the iOS version, do my edits in the browser, then reinstall the iOS version once complete. Please get at least feature parity with the Online version.

  • Download too BIG! Aug 19, 2018

    By BestAppsUser
    I will no longer use Wifi - the artificial limits on download are about to make me delete your LARGE App. I have a case at Apple and of course they blame you and the carrier - the support agent agrees it is “Stupid”. I wonder why it’s okay to stream Gigs of a baseball game or a movie but downloading an app that is Broken is a NO NO. MS NOT that differentiating these days. Same for other MS apps. I like Outlook but LookOUT to be gone too. And since I own the company that buys 365 and Azure gone is a BIG gone. Tick. Tick, tick. I’m you are now aware and I can let other users know all is well in a few days or so, therefore rating will go to a deserved location. As I always say, “ when it doesn’t make sense it is about the Cents. Let’s use some common sense, and worry less about the small cents. Ready set GO! - drdave

  • New update is subpar Oct 12, 2017

    By Beveerrrrrllllyyyy
    I used to love this app when I’m taking notes on my IPad. However, its slowing me down and annoying me. Here’s why: 1. Whenever I try to type something in the notes section, the slide doesnt resize anymore to fit the screen with the section open. Even if I try to minimize the slide, you can’t move it to the side to keep the whole thing in view. 2. The names of my presentations are disappearing! For example, I’ll have a presentation that I named “Ch. 14 Cardiac Assessment.” Now it’ll only show me “Ch. 14.” I’m getting confused in trying to open the correct presentation! 3. When I try to save my presentation from one drive to another, it’ll save the presentations in both drives instead of just transferring it to another. I don’t know if that bothers anyone else, but it bothers me. PLEASE FIX THIS WITH A NEW UPDATE. OR JUST BRING BACK THE PREVIOUS UPDATE!
