Very useful and helpful! I wish I had it years ago!


Still a lot of guesswork  Massimomomo  3 star

For people used to Word on a desktop, the phone version is a little dicey. It needs to be more intuitive to desktop users.

It's getting better and better every update!


The program  lesliekr  5 star

Are use this app on my iPad. My iPad is a 16 bit. I've been using Word to write part of the book that I composed and the only problem is that it's taking up a lot of space. I've had to delete so many pictures in order to make up the gigabytes. That's my only complaint. I would also like to be able to use the text boxes the same way you can use them on the desktop version. Other than that, I like it

@OgbeniDipo: Some Nigerian graduates cannot use Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Sharepoint, Dropbox etc. Who will employ you?


Woohoo!  Loorul  4 star

Aspiring novelist here. I LOVE Word; I've got it on my laptop and my phone (no duh.) Anyway, it's really great for keeping your stories with you wherever you go and writing wherever you go, too. Yaaay! 😁 BUT... There's no proper read mode, where you can't edit something. I'm sick of reading my document and accidentally tapping something that brings me back to further in the page. Do me a favor and add one, please? Otherwise, Word is great, but it's missing a few features...


Lots of bugs  Velamcco  1 star

There needs to be a lot more work done addressing the bugs ... such as the randomly capitalized letters as you type!


The AutoSave Function Does not work  Jansenee  1 star

I just lost an entire essay because the autosave function is not working. It's due in 3 hours so I have time to redo it but I am still very angry about this.


Microsoft trash  russian1945  1 star

You cant type in a new document on an ipad pro but the good news is that the uninstall works grest!


A mess  Tomclaude  2 star

I have to use Word, so I bought 365 for all necessary features. Updates drug my Ipad 3 to a crawl - typing lagged several seconds. Had to buy an iPad Pro. Microsoft never had efficient programming - I have used Word for 30 years - it is still a mess. It is almost incompatable with OneDrive - an essential Cloud feature for Microsoft. OneDrive group says the problems are with Word Group - aren't they in the same company? (Yes!)


Great  Klward  5 star

I use Word at work. I've used Pages as my personal doc app since in so deep into the apple eco system. It was difficult to marry the two, convert work from a page document to a Word document at work, for work I did at home. I finally downloaded the app and signed up for the OneDrive. Makes working on documents at home much easier. Impressed with the features on iPad version.

Logging Out  Uff-Da Shuff-da  1 star

For some reason after this update every time my iPad screen locks, i am logged out of my Microsoft 365 account and I am prompted to log back in to continue working on my document. I get Microsoft office through my University so I don't know if that is making a difference, but it is extremely annoying to have to log in 5 or 6 times during a several hour span when simply attempting to write a paper.


Do not use  Agnewsdei  1 star

I am a full time student and this application on the computer and tablet has just lost my papers they have just disappeared and I have wasted much time using this program


Issue after update  Charmz_love  1 star

I love this app and use it daily for school. After the update, I am unable to go back into more recent documents. If I create a new one, the same thing occurs, and wont allow to open. When I open older documents it says something went wrong, cant upload and read only.


Love it!  SMcMack  5 star

Love the streamlined feel! I use this app on my iPad Pro for school and am able to work from various locations to create, edit, and share. Love how I can also come home and open my computer and have the document in its latest version ready to open and edit from that platform as well. Love all of the Office apps, makes my life easier!
