Microsoft Excel Reviews

Steven Zyler

Still Semi-Broken/Almost Unusable  Steven Zyler  2 star

BROKEN BROKEN BROKEN BROKEN 1/15/19 FIFTH update in a row that hasn’t resolved the issue of the current file not staying open for very long and needing to be downloaded and reopened over and over again each time Excel is brought to the foreground after a short while, which several others reviews have mentioned. Sooo disappointing... but I haven’t found a good enough iOS alternative to replace this. Yet. I just wish I could downgrade to the version just before this issue appeared. 👎👎👎


It’s okay  the0nly0ne  3 star

A problem I’m having is when I use quotation marks in a formula. It tries to input a fancy quotation instead of a plain text quotation, and breaks the formula. Stop doing that across all office products, please. It’s 2019, not 1996.

What happened?  His Most Serene Majesty  1 star

Where are all the useful buttons? Where is the save button? Why does the same spreadsheet keep popping up every time I open the program? This version is a mess.

Nice but needs work  Randall King  4 star

Why, every time Microsoft Office apps are updated, is the download 200-300 MB? Has Microsoft not heard of delta updates? Otherwise, good app!


Almost Great!  gggg7277756  4 star

By far the most faithful Excel on iOS! I have moved very complex spreadsheets from laptop to iPad without problem. Issues: 1. Anomalous behavior when operating with intermittent WiFi. Gets confused when moving between full Wifi to No Wifi to Wifi but No internet to full Wifi. Sometimes hangs. Sometimes just exits. Might be better to let user control net access to avoid Excel dealing with network connectivity errors. 2. Lack of VB/Macros precludes sophisticated spreadsheets and those with UI built using buttons and other controls.

Ya, right.

Why do I suddenly need a Office 360 subscription??  Ya, right.  2 star

I like being able to access my excel files from my iPhone. Works great for simple editing and updating. But suddenly I can not edit an excel file that I had created on my laptop and had been able to edit it on my iPhone before. It opens read only and when I try to save it to another name or location it does not allow it because I now must have an Office 360 subscription. I never had one to begin with. I have a one drive account, but that does not get me around this. WHY do I suddenly need an Office 360 subscription? It’s MY file; I created it OUTSIDE of this iPhone app. WHY are you holding me hostage? I can’t find an explanation for why this happened and why I now need the subscription. Google Sheets seems to work just fine and I am now using that instead. Are other Office apps going to do the same thing to me? Incidentally, if you get stuck by this, I finally got around not being able to write the file anywhere by mailing the file to myself from inside the app and then I opened it with Google Sheets.


I want to learn more about EXCEL  c.vini.m  5 star

It’s a very useful TOOL 🛰 it guides you throughout the app. It teaches you how to use it step by step how to create templates for what you need so it’s also very convenient. If you create a template for your daily expenses • ex: what you expend by priority laid out for you by how much of what’s important you expend. •ex: TIME•EATING•exercising•WORKING• How much I expend in...A DAY -A WEEK- A- MONTH A -YEAR A -DECADE -2 DECADES...of what I care about. That is how I measure my life. And “not for nothing. But” this app really helps me accomplish that.

For viewing on iPads only unless you like frustration  stick with windows  1 star

Simple functions do not exist in the iPad version of excel. Such as duplication of a sheet, pasting, etc. I use excel daily and even automate test equipment processes with it, but try to setup a multiple sheet workbook... forget it.

Don’t interrupt me  Richard Aussie  1 star

Stop annoying me with ridiculous reviews when I try to work on my spreadsheet. Very annoying and uncalled for as i already subscribe. Advertising or reviews ect. Not wanted when I pay for a service


So far so good but no pivot tables  jimnickian  4 star

Seems very much like the normal versions that I’m used too. The only snag is that It doesn’t let you do pivot tables, which is a shame.

Functionality is too basic!


App keeps relaunching itself, reducing usability...  (ecoworld)  3 star

I have but not recently, moved most of my spreadsheets to Google Sheets and onto my Google Drive, in order to increase the ease of accessibility of my spreadsheets. Using this app has made me neutral at best and utterly frustrated at its worst because of its constant relaunching of the app, despite being 30 seconds or within a minute of leaving. Usually from when I return to the app, I am confronted with the Excel green screen entity, thus having to wait 15 seconds from launch. I use other apps such as Sketches for me to input data into my work and the app crashes regularly. Therefore I am questioning whether to keep using the app or to use another application such as Google Sheets for all of my work and spreadsheets. Another problem which may attribute to the overall sluggishness of the app may include the app cache. I do not know of what the function of the app cache is, but can lead to more of my device’s storage being used up. Consequently even though my spreadsheets only take up 10MB of space, and the app also takes up ~250MB, on my settings, it apparently gobbles up around 800MB according to my device. I, then have to get out of my way using my laptop and a file manager to backup the data and to delete the app and reinstalling the app (and restoring my spreadsheets) in order to delete the more than 500MB of app cache which seems to serve no purpose at all. These two main issues have results in my change of service for my spreadsheets and for my work. Chances, are that I may move my work, entirely and permanently to another app which has better usability.


Just another money grab  Sights3  1 star

Loaded Excel off the App Store - after reading the reviews, only to find that the app does nothing other than display a file. BUT, Microsoft is so helpful, in that they, kindly display a message stating I can make this a usable App by simply taking out a monthly subscription. - WOW!!! Really! This is what it has come down to? Misleading people, so you can get them into a position to subscribe to your cloud based programs.


Just can’t afford the unjustified subscrition  caaf  1 star

For a program I’d barely use the cost of subscription is crazy.. Totally disabled, sure can view but now nothing. No choice but to remove the pointless app

Never again  Grumpy !?/@&$  1 star

Finally pushed me over the edge and have ditched all Microsoft products as a result of this. Literally unable to do anything on this without paying money to upgrade it says I already paid for the whole Microsoft suite. I shouldn’t need to dick around for 30 minutes just to access this changing passwords I can’t remember, searching on the internet for guides. It is completely non intuitive and a terrible experience
