- Love it, but crashes often

I’m a writer and google docs is my go-to for writing. I love it, it’s simple and accessible from any device and saves automatically so I don’t lose anything if I accidentally close out. Actually, it’s pretty much perfectly me except for the fact that it starts lagging a bit if my document begins getting too long (I’ve had to start writing the second part of a story in a separate document which can get sort of annoying but also it’s not The Worst), AND that also brings me to the point of y review: this app crashes on me All. The. Time. I’ll be writing, and suddenly my screen will go black and then I’m on my home screen bc. Well, it crashed. No clue why, it’s happened on so many occasions with all different sized of documents, it just happens, and it’s so annoying because sometimes it kills y writing groove, you know? It’s be great if this could possibly be fixed. Happens on both iphone and iPad, probably more often with longer documents (maybe a hundred pages idk) but has also happened with shorter ones. I’ve been writing for maybe four hours and it’s happened to me three times today. Again, it’s definitely not a deal breaker, I love docs and I’ll never go for anything else, but it is super irritating.

- Better for Personal Use

I’ve been a longtime user of Google Docs—around three or four years—and it’s been great for storing important documents. I’ve also used it a lot for jotting down ideas, writing creative stories, and other personal uses. I feel that these are what the app is best for. I’ve tried to use it several times for academic essays, and the current format does not support certain basic functions, especially with indentation, adding page numbers in MLA or APA, and so on. The spell check for Google Docs is also flawed, and frequently marks everyday words as misspelled, and then other words not in the regular dictionary as perfectly correct. The syncing is also kind of finicky sometimes, and you can lose work or have to restart the app multiple times in one sitting, if you’re somewhere that there is no ideal connection. So if you’re a student or a professional, you are also going to want Microsoft Word, which has more features and is easier to use. However, the syncing generally works very well, and I love being able to back up all my documents. The aesthetic appearance of the documents are also very appealing, and most of the basic writing functions are easy to access. Keyboard shortcuts still work, and those shortcuts match to whichever model of computer you are using, so you don’t have to learn anything terribly new to use the app competently. It’s super easy to add other contributors, and to restrict privacy/use settings. All in all it has served me very ell.

- Highly recommended, but definitely room for improvement

Google Docs is very, very useful as a whole, providing services that allow seamless collaboration and that solve many past horrors of word-processors (like the classic “I didn’t save my doc and now it’s gone foreverrrrr!!”). As great as it is on desktop, I personally found the transfer to mobile devices a little, well, less great. It’s obviously difficult to find an intuitive way to lay out all the functions of Docs on desktop onto a smaller screen, but it’s honestly such a huge hassle navigating comments and suggestions, even when I’m on my iPad. It’s also kind of annoying that I can’t zoom out more on a doc—basically, once the width of the page fills the screen, I can no longer zoom out. This doesn’t sound like a huge deal, but it makes for a lot of tedious scrolling when an already long document has relatively large text. Additionally, there are these small annoying glitches that occasionally occur. For example, when I was editing a doc, I kept trying to delete a space, but it would always delete the space and the letter behind it. I tried over and over again to no avail... sigh.... It also seems to me that Docs can get kind of slow? I’m on a new device, so the hardware should be working fine, but there’s a huge lag when I’m trying to type in the app. Other than these few problems, everything else has been working fine and going smoothly.

- I use this app a lot

I write original works and fan fics, and this app lets me work on them at any point. Just waking up and I have an idea, just hopping out of the shower, in the line at the store, lunch break, moments of clarity while gardening, you get the point. Since the first time I’ve used this app, to the many years later, I have stopped worrying about forgetting some idea I had before I get to my computer. Even if my phone is offline, I have been able to work on my stories. I think it really is my most used app on my phone. Also, because it auto saves, I HAVE NEVER HAD MY STORIES DISAPPEAR! Unlike other writing programs, that have lost me hours of work because of a blue screen, freezing, or other issues, I have never had the pain of opening a Google Doc and finding all my work gone. I do wish it had a better way to organize your files, as what it does have seems “meh.” But, at least, it has some form of organization. Lastly, I love that I can share the doc in various ways. This has been so helpful for me when I comes to sharing my stories. It lets those who are my beta reader comment and make suggestions, those who I wrote for have full access, and those who I want to let just read all have their own set of restrictions.

- Essential Tool!! A Must-Have

Google Docs is a comprehensive cloud document service that let’s me share and create just about anything I could ever want or need. I’ve used it to polish up my resume, capture notes and ideas, record song lyrics, journal my dreams, create schedules, write stories, and more! The sharing features are fantastic; my sister and I co-authored a novel using Google Docs! We can edit and read each other’s work in real time, leave comments and suggestions, and use the chat to stay on the same page. Google Docs is THE essential writing tool for creative and practical uses — plus it has cloud storage that makes it seamless to work on your projects from any device! I’ll often be working on a story on my computer and move to my phone for edits, or pull it up to add an idea quickly while on-the-go. There’s also free templates to chose from that helped me format my resume and other official documents. I love Google Docs, and it definitely earned those 5 stars. I suggest it to anyone looking for a modern word processing application that is catered to usability and will exceed your expectations.

- Great, except...

Like most people of Generation Z, the later years of my education (8th grade-present) have greatly benefited from using Google applications such as Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Google Docs’s amazing accessibility, collaboration tools, storage, and auto-save have always been what’s made it better than competing office tools. The app itself is great, and once you get the hand of using it on a hand held device, it makes working from almost anywhere possible. I’ve found myself using these Google applications for more than just essays and presentations now a days, as I begin to need work resumés and finance budgets. So really, Docs (and other Google applications) are great! Except, I’ve encountered an issue when using this Docs app. Now, this could be because of several reasons, however, I’ve found that after prolonged used, when typing, the keyboard begins to lag a bunch, making working on documents so frustrating. At first I thought that the keyboard could be lagging because my iPad might’ve over heated? But, the keyboard has lagged even when the iPad doesn’t feel warm. I’m not sure if internet connection might have something to do with it, but my Wifi is pretty strong, and I rarely encounter issues with it. That’s my only complaint, but other than that I really do love the app.

- Love Google docs

I absolutely love google docs, especially since I’m in college and it saves your work automatically when your up at 2:00am trying to finish an essay that is due that same day and you fall asleep. There probably is away to do this, but if not I wish there would be away to categorize documents into different folders for different projects or classes and or poor year. I think this would be very helpful for me since one day I would love to show my kids that hard work does pay off. The slide shows are excellent and great for presenting history projects to make them at least semi fun and very easy to use once you learn to switch over from PowerPoint... but the basic outline I personally feel is similar yet differently. The docs were it is like Microsoft Word is very identical just a few extra perks of not having to save, having all of your work in one place, and very easy usage. The only reason for a 4 star was the fact is that if it doesn’t have the filing system “ I would be surprised if it didn’t” again probably haven’t figured it out, but have been using this program since 2015 at-least so I think I would have found it, but things fly over everybody's head sometimes “am I right or am I right?”

- Google did me wrong at the worst possible moment

You know how we all rely on google for turning in class assignments? Well... IT DID ME WRONG AT THE WORST POSSIBLE MOMENT!!! I take AP World History and had something due today and couldn’t get on it until this weekend but this week it was updated for a big fix that has going on for weeks now that is still going on!!! The app crashes at random times whether it’s long or short periods of time, and this week it’s gotten worse to the point I can’t even see my cursor when I type on my phone anymore and whenever I try to exit out of the page to refresh, I suddenly see two icons of my own account that was recently on the doc and and still see the cursor I recently used on my doc. I was copying and pasting my work from one box onto another but suddenly no matter how many times I double tapped on my screen, I couldn’t paste, forcing me to restart my phone and try again and once I got back on my doc, I realized I never pasted my paragraph back on the doc and now my work is lost until I can get on a computer tomorrow and search my version history and revive my lost work!! Sad to say, google can’t be relied on for everything especially when it’s been having a problem that gone unnoticed and unsolved for over 2 months now.

- Folders, please!

I am a young writer and I use Google Docs for school and writing. I have many documents that are currently organized by last modified. This means that I have stories that I wrote, stories that my friends are writing that I get to edit, and rubrics, lists, and assignments that my teachers created for distance learning all jumbled together. As you can imagine, there is no rhyme or reason to this mess and I can never find what I need. This is annoying to me. I am trying to get myself together and be more organized, but this is hard when there is no visible means of organization. I want to keep my books separate from my gajillions of distance learning assignments, and that’s not possible. This is a suggestion, not for the app, but for Google Docs in general. My teacher told me about Drive folders, but they were difficult to use and they did not separate my work from my schoolwork, as I had intended. I’m thinking maybe when you go into Docs, instead of seeing all your stuff, you see all your folders. Then you click on a folder and it shows you all the documents inside that folder. This would make using Google Docs so much easier. Please add folders; it would make life SO MUCH EASIER!!!

- Love Google Docs…but there is SUCH weird stuff sometimes

I love Google Docs so much. I use it through iPad and school Chromebook. It’s really helpful and useful. The only thing is that sometimes the spell check just does the weirdest stuff and from my iPad I have to either do what it wants or have blue lines under a lot of stuff, and it’s not because I have bad grammar. There should be some way on the iPad to say that what you wrote is the grammar you want, because it gets annoying to have blue lines everywhere where you don’t want them. Also through iPad you can’t do an indent unless from your other device you already started to do them, and sometimes if you don’t want an indent in a certain spot but do in the rest you can’t take it away. And if you are working with someone else and you both try to fix something it fixes it twice instead of once and it’s annoying. Also one time my WiFi was fine and I went onto a doc and all my fonts were gone and it took like five minutes for it to get back to what I wanted and it isn’t that long but it also wouldn’t let me fix it cuz it didn’t show all my fonts that I had. All this stuff seems small but it gets annoying

- Meh.

The only reason I use Google Docs over programs like Pages and Word is that my school system uses it and I have unlimited storage for Google Docs in my drive (which by the way is great). But the app is just sooooo s l o w. I don’t know if this is an issue with my iPad (which has plenty of performance issues itself) or with the app, but it’s nearly unusable for me. When I use my bluetooth keyboard with it the text is very laggy (or with the onscreen keyboard for that matter) and text editing is an iOS 12-style nightmare. You can’t drag your finger over text to select it like in iOS 13, you have to tap on the cursor, select “Select,” and then drag over all the text you want to select (which is very slow and laggy). I would really appreciate a couple of features, like viewing the same app in multiple spaces in iPadOS (because I find myself needing to look at multiple docs at once more and more these days) or at least some kind of similar system and a better Explore feature like on desktop. And as several other people have mentioned the text correction is nowhere near perfect. It always marks weird things as grammatically incorrect that are perfectly fine. Google please please please please listen and thanks for reading

- Great for writing, but hard to insert equations

Google’s Docs is fantastic! It is nice to have your document constantly backed up without hassle. I have grown to prefer using this app over Microsoft’s Word and Apple’s Pages. I use this app mostly on an iPad and keyboard. One thing that stand out for google docs over the other word processing apps is its ease to format using keyboard shortcuts. In iOS this is HUGE!!! The ability to use keyboard shortcuts drastically improves productivity when working in a touch based operating system! With that being said, I cannot do all my work on this app. I can type up most of my documents using this app, but I need to switch to a different device to do some finishing touches before publishing my documents. For example, it would be nice to change a documents margin’s while using this app. It also would be nice to insert equations using this app. As it stands, those features remain on the web based version of docs and not on the iOS version. That being said, google docs is my go to app for any word processing on an iOS device. It is clear the team at google have put a lot of work into developing this app, perhaps even more than its competitors.

- Accessible anywhere

Before knowing about Goggle Docs I would use word, a coworker who was also in school showed me how to access it on my phone if I’m on the go, or just sitting at my desk. It was much more enjoyable and easy to use when needing to jump back on at any time. I have told others in my class about google docs, it just took a while for me to actually access all my emails that I can link to . It saved me time logging into a computer, when I’m already looking at my phone. It’s better than word. Also when having errors it allows you to see a correction or just add a comment on the side so you can either fix or re word later. I really like that I can pull it up on my phone and allow a friend to read from my laptop for a review on some thing I’ve missed while working and writing. The application saved me a lot of time. Thank you! I think if there were step for first timers also once you open a google account explain the many options you can do with the application!!!

- Google Docs is OK but painful on iPad

I think if I used an external keyboard it might be better, but formatting and getting spreadsheets to function like excel is really not an option. I find that trying to select text to cut and paste or copy or for formatting font size or color is very frustrating. You have to grab and roll your finger just right or you select too much. Also, when backspacing, use caution. I couldn't stop it from deleting far more than i wanted. Make sure you select what you want to delete instead of relying on bkspc to stop when you want it to. I am happy I found a way to do my budget on my iPad since my laptop is tedious to start up just to work on my finances, but i do wish it wasn't so painful to toggle into edit mode. Google should talk to more end users, and I am also not a fan of the company being that I have a 35 yr Career in Technology and I am I am sure they will wake up and come into the 21st century soon with their treatment of women, and get more women managing projects and holding positions of power. Their tolerance for misogyny is incredibly sickening. I wish someone from a more progressive company would invent a better alternative since I don't trust or like Google.

- Good for the most part

Google docs is a fantastic website to use to get work done. It auto saves, allows collaboration, and has so many other features. The app, however, lags so much when typing that you can type a sentence or phrase and reasonably expect to wait another 10+ seconds before it finishes typing. And this is on a doc with only one person on it. Imagine the frustration when multiple people are on it! And if you think it’s done typing and go to fix an error earlier in the sentence, it will continue typing in the middle of the sentence (even though you finished typing several seconds prior). Another problem with it is the inability to copy and paste MLA citations in it. If I’m working on an essay and need to make a bibliography, I’ll copy the formatted citation from an online citation maker, paste it into google docs, then have to manually readjust the spacing to make it correct. While you can just paste it into Word and go, you can’t with google docs, which is frustrating, especially when you’ve got 15 sources to format manually. (This is a problem with the website on a computer, too.)

- Fantastic with some suggestions

I love the way docs works because it saves your data constantly and it doesn’t glitch on you and it provides you with so many ways to type notes for school, writing, and much more. I do have some suggestions to make the work flow for taking notes easier though. When it comes to fonts, there are specific ones I like to use for notes, but it becomes a pain to have to go back and switch it to the font you like instead of the default Ariel. The same goes for the headings and other text variations. They default to Ariel instead of the font that you were using before hand. Another suggestion I have is to make a keyboard short cut for the horizontal line. That would make dividing sections of writing way easier. The last suggestion I have is to also make a key board short cut for the list option styles. For example, I don’t like using the default dot style for the list. I like using the star one because it makes the list more interesting to look at. So instead of defaulting to the dot style it could default to the style of list that you were using before hand. For example, I would be using the star style of list and then I would section that list off with a horizontal line and then begin to start a new list that would then default to the star style. In general, maybe you guys could make google docs more customizable or at least have let it have the option to be more customizable with custom keyboard commands for different things.

- I ❤️ Google Docs but...

Well, honestly, Google Docs is AMAZING! I love all the features and it just has this very nice atmosphere and it’s just...AWESOME!!! But there is just ONE little problem. You see, before I had an iPhone, I had an LG phone. Specifically, the LG Fortune. And when I had that phone, you could put emojis in the text. But NOW I can’t even add an emoji! I bet you’re thinking this is useless, but what about when I’m writing a story or something? Like for example, I add a texting part to my story. Then, I do it like someone adds an emoji to their text. It WOULDN’T appear! It kinda get’s me a little disappointed because it ruins the whole book. I don’t care if whoever’s reading this thinks I’m dumb or stupid, but hey! I’m saying MY opinion! Isn’t that what a review is for? To share your opinion about a thing (in this case, an app)? Anyway, I just think that Google Inc. should consider this and improve it or fix it. But overall, Google Docs is an extraordinary app that I recommend to everyone. 😄

- For the “world’s most powerful search engine, you sure can’t build a user friendly document creator”

I love that google docs lets you share your document and work simultaneously with others. It’s very convenient in that regard. However if there were another option for that purpose, I’d probably switch over. There are so many things in google docs that make it way harder and more frustrating than it needs to be. You can’t put text over an image, it’s a million steps just to find where text boxes are located, you can’t paste something in from Microsoft Word without the formatting being destroyed, it’s hard to set a tab-stop that will stay there when you move on to a new line, there are cntrl shortcuts that work for other document creators but not for google docs, and it’s almost impossible to customize a document to look different or engaging if you’re trying to make a handout. I could go on. I’m in my early 20s so it’s not like I’m just tech-incompetent—google docs is just needlessly frustrating to use. It’s all made more frustrating by the fact that google is such a huge company; they have the resources to make docs better but for some reason they don’t.

- Spellcheck...Really?

Don’t bother using Doc’s spellcheck, as it is almost as good as having a third grader edit your paper. Sometimes it catches a few mistakes, but it doesn’t catch but a small fraction of what Microsoft Word finds (and will fix automatically, or at least notify you immediately that something is jacked up). Also, sometimes it seems not to work at all. I’m not sure if it’s a “lagging” issue, a glitch, like one person mentioned in a previous post, or otherwise. I also dislike the ability to format, as all features (in general) seem harder to use and are more problematic than Word. Am I biased because I used Word for a decade or so before Docs arrived on the scene? Probably, but I still think there are many fixes needed before this is a reliable and user friendly platform. I’ve spoken to people who believe several of my gripes are due to a connectivity problem, as we use Docs in my school to write essays etc., but I don’t seems pretty frequent and we have issues often enough for me to complain to random strangers on this platform. Sooo, General Google, get on this please.

- Deletes data

I use google docs to type up reports, nearly everyday. I type my notes on a variety of apple devices, and usually it works well enough. But occasionally it will pull up an old version of the document, sometimes a few weeks old, and it’ll delete all the previous weeks worth of notes I’ve written. Today I typed up my daily note on my ipad, all my notes were on there (I had used a MacBook Air earlier that week with no problem either). Afterwards I went onto an iPad mini to add to my note and it pulled up a version from over 2 weeks prior, showing none of my notes that I had recently written. I quickly pulled out my phone and checked the doc and it was the exact same on there, both completely sync’d up. I tried to check the history of the notes to see if I could see my deleted notes, but it didn’t have anything recent to show. The only was I was able to save my doc was by turning on airplane mode on my iPad and then opening the doc so that it wouldn’t update, and then turning the WiFi back on so it could make the others sync to it. This is extremely worrisome to use a service that is supposed to sync your notes across devices, but may actually delete all your data.

- Great and all, a lifesaver, but might need some adjustments

So, my life is very packed and full, and every time I want to write something, I usually use google docs. It makes life so much easier that I don’t have to use my laptop to write when I have this great mobile app. The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars is because there are more functions on the computer version than there are on the app. For example, on computers you can indent and such. However, I can’t indent on the app. Also, I love it, but I wish there would be an easier way to sort everything, like a folder or something. There probably already is something like this, or I just didn’t find it yet. Compared to Microsoft word, google docs is a worthy competitor. Microsoft has more functions, but google docs are free and Microsoft costs.. I don’t even know. I wish they would add a way to insert charts and text boxes onto a doc. However, compared to word, I like it better because you can collaborate/work with friends while on Microsoft word, it is much harder. I like google docs.

- 50/50

I’ve been using google docs for 3 years now. Personally, I prefer the laptop as it is easier to type on, and type much more freely. But, on my laptop, accessing google docs, contains needing WiFi/service to type on / loading chrome or a web browser. By that, it’s not portable, or able to use on the go. I’ve used google docs on my iPad before, and I type pretty OK on my iPad, but not nearly as fast on my laptop. But you can use it on the go-to, but without WiFi. I’m pretty sure there isn’t the great ‘add-ons’ like the ones on computer, or laptop. Google docs, is a free, accessible great essential for any student of all ages. It’s great, it’s literally like word, but you don’t have to pay an expensive budget for it. Docs is just perfect for anyone, and it’s so great. Literally, they’re add on(s) for people who also need it. Highly recommend, all though it’s worldwide to schools, throughout everywhere. Google docs will always be a great essential.

- Changed my mind

I enjoy having this app. I can edit my documents, change fonts, etc. I can do a page set up, so I know how it will print. I like that I can use on OS and IOS. It all backs up. It all syncs. What I DO NOT LIKE, is it duplicates itself. It is in Google Drive, iCloud Drive, and if you make a folder. I took notes on my Spanish lessons. I have different documents for different lessons. 1. It moves the document is you edit, open etc. Depending on what you pick. However, if you want all the docs to stay in same order after editing it, it will not. You can put by alphabet, but it still moves docs around. I would like the option of them staying in the place I put them and if I want to able to drag. 2. If you create a doc, it automatically goes to their Drive app if you have that app. So, I am deleting. I do not want on multiple places. 3. If you make a file folder on GOOGLE DOCS, it does not move doc to file folder, it just duplicates it. Again, I would like to be able to send to separate file folders and then delete from GOOGLE DOC, DRIVE, or wherever, and they stay in the file folder; the choice of keeping or deleting on any app and not loosing on the other. Or keep in one of other doc holders and delete from others. This is on the apps that file share. Nice to be able to send to another app or file, but should be able to delete from one without loosing from the other.

- Highly recommend, just a few small complaints.

I honestly prefer google docs over Microsoft Word, and I’ve used docs for many years now and I loved it. I find it a lot easier to get through essays and other journaling much faster with docs because of easy access to different settings. Only complaint (for both desktop and mobile) is a few glitches it has. I mainly use docs on my laptop, and I’ve noticed a lot of the time when I first open a new document, it’s very slow trying to load and will sometimes completely stop working after typing a few words. Another thing, it’s a little frustrating not being able to edit the margin sizes unless you search “margins” in the Help tab. It would be much more convenient if there was a Page Setup tab. Those are small and not super important complaints, but I’m all about convenience and easy organizations!

- Great but crashes often and offline use is poor

I really wish I could give this five stars because it has been so helpful for my writing, but the offline use function is basically useless. I’ll select “available offline” for a document , and when I’m in an area where I can’t get Internet access, it will tell me that I can’t load that same document because I don’t have Internet access. I also dislike the way that if I’m working on something and go to another app for literally a few seconds, when I go back it will sometimes have taken me out of the document so I have to reopen the document and find where I left off. This wouldn’t be so bad except for when I don’t have internet access, it will tell me that I can’t access the document I was just using because I don’t have internet (again, even though I selected the “available offline” option). If they could just fix these two things, it would be perfect. I’m still giving it four stars because despite the bugs it has been invaluable.

- Perfect for Educators

I love google docs for so many reasons . I can work on a document from anywhere around the world and from any device . It’s so convenient and allows me that flexibility that I don’t have in Microsoft Word. And to me Google is amazing because they still understand the need for Microsoft Word so they give you an option to save your files as a Microsoft Word document. But the real reason why I love Google Docs so much is because I am an educator and I have been using Google Docs as my whiteboard the same as I have in class. I share the document with my students. They can click on links for assignments. I can share notes with them and they can reply back to me. I also can comment on their work that they create in Google Docs and help them outside of school. Google docs makes my life as he cosmetology educator much easier. Thanks So much Google your so smart! The GlamBoss The Siobhan Nicole

- How I feel about Google docs

Personally I use Google docs for just about everything and anything or use it for school things so if I need to write a paper I tend to use this more than Word, or if I am like doing pictures for like a slide or something like that and I want to see which ones I like more where I just want to save them on my computer I don’t tend to save them to my computer I tend to put them on a Google doc and just transfer them over to slide. I really do recommend Google docs for kids or adults who are in middle school high school and even college I know my parents they use Google docs when they were in college and they’re 40 something and they went to college and they were like 35 but they use Google Docs a lot too and yes Word has some features that Google doc doesn't however, Google doc has stencil type things for Google slides and it helps a lot.

- Great for writing!

I love this app so much!! It’s great for writing, making lists, and more!!! But if your reading this this is a sign that Jesus loves you! So much. This life on earth is short and we are called to do everything for the glory of god!! And when we die we get to be in heaven! The place of paradise! Were nothing can hurt us and everything is perfect! God loves you so much and would break down a mountain to save you. All you have to do it believe. Trust. Have faith. Obey. Spread his GOOD WORD!!! Don’t be afraid to tell your friends about how great God is because your afraid they will think you are weird, because on judgment day, they’re going to be sent to eternal torture and they will look at you one last time and say, “why didn’t you warn me?” Please fear not because god has a good good plan for you... sometimes it’s hard, but everything’s going to be okay....pain is temporary, but god love is forever.


Download latest version of app and it’s loaded with BUGS. Do not count on this app to edit your documents. Commands such as “select” “copy” and “paste”. Do not perform right. If you can get select tool to finally select a paragraph and either copy or cut it no matter what commands you do from that point forward the app holds onto that selected text in its memory and you cannot do anything other than paste that selected text! If you try to select “new” text before you have even selected the text the app pastes the old text again. If you try to even report this as a big to developers by clicking on the link to report a bug you cannot because the window to write the feedback has just once again pastes the old text!! Yes again! It will not release this memory! It’s like it needs therapy or something! Lol. Do not count on this app to edit or retain your documents. Like many google products it’s failing. Google in general is going downhill. Don’t even try to use google nest cameras! That entire app crashes a hundred times a day! I’m done with google in Genetal. I’m sure their stock is declining rapidly too.

- Great Website, HORRIBLE iPad App

I love using google docs, i use it for school and i have the new iPad with the keyboard so it sometimes feels like a laptop. Well I downloaded the google docs app, and the whole interface is nothing like the web version. I tried using it today for an essay and I ended up opening safari and using google docs there because all the controls i needed were on the web version. Why limit the app to basic things like bold,italic,highlight, and font/size? There’s not even a size issue because I can load the same google docs that’s on computers on the safari app on the iPad. And the fact that you have to manually open the settings and tap “print layout” every time you open the app to make sure its not just a continuous white roll of paper is so annoying. Then you always have to tap the screen to bring up a menu that has a button to edit the doc as if you don’t already want to work on it. What do you think I’m doing? Staring at my paper? No I got work to do, If I wanted to review my paper without editing it I’d just I don’t know... not type words into my doc.

- Retiree road trip journaling with ease

For my needs, this app is 5 stars, although I haven't used it for documents that I want to edit or that are for others to assess. A year ago I bought an IPad mini, a keyboard case that fits my hands perfectly, and have now used gdocs on several trips. I use it for to do lists, packing lists, and for journaling along the way. I type faster and more clearly than I write and also flow more freely when I'm typing. On our current trip I experimented, opening up the journal while out of wi fi--and it worked! I wrote using my Iphone, then my Ipad, and when I was in wifi, they synched--wonderful! What I wish--that I could be confident that any documents I do want to share with folks who don't have gdocs would work as attachments that everyone could open. I'm not sure about that, so for those documents I still use Microsoft Word.

- Good, but could use some work.

Google docs is overall a pretty good app, except one thing. Not sure if it involves google classroom but whenever I turn in a piece of work, I go back into the original doc and it says view only when I clearly am the owner of it. I hope google fixes it and maybe allow mobile users to add fonts since it would be awesome. Besides that point, it’s very useful to write drafts without actually, you know, writing it. Also if you could do this but when I insert some kind of picture into the doc I hope I could possibly drag it all the way to the corner. Of course these are just small features that you don’t have to incorporate into this but they just make it more enjoyable for the writer/student/teacher/others. The google classroom issue is the only real complaint about here. I really love google docs as a student and this is my favorite app to use while writing. Love you Google Docs! :D

- Sorting Certain Docs

I love this app, but I have one request that might help me and possibly others out more- maybe if there was like a way to add folders into the app- like- for sorting certain docs- it would help some people find some stuff they did that they never got to finish. For example: Say you write a story, but you have a ton of other stories, but they aren’t complete and you don’t want that specific story to get mixed in with the incomplete stories. Just make a folder, name it, and put the unfinished stories there. Plus it would sort things a little better. I tried doing some stuff with google drive and it didn’t help me much, so adding folders here in google docs to sort certain documents and keep them from getting mixed in with the others would be very helpful. If this does happen, I’ll appreciate this app even more.

- Not Quite Adequate — Especially for Real-Time Collaboration

Do you want to type stuff into a Google Doc that other people can read later? This is fine. Do you want to edit documents other people have created? This will do it. Want to do that collaboratively while several of you are sitting around a table? Put away your iPad and go get a laptop. This app has significant deficiencies. Suggestions and comments are entirely divorced from their location in the document. Other features are similarly hobbled. The enormous list of “Recent” documents is useless. Creating a new document doesn’t even put it at the top of the list. That new document goes right at the root of your Drive, by the way, with no option to create it exactly where you want it. The only way to keep things organized is through a long series of taps to move your new document to the desired location. The modal Edit/View interface is enormously frustrating. I don’t really like using Google Docs on a traditional computer. Using it on an iPad is worse.

- Occasionally Glitchy but Otherwise Great

Generally the Google Docs app works pretty well. I only use it for writing and making minor edits to class notes on my phone. But often I find when I’m typing that the screen will jump around. It also doesn’t play nice with Apple’s autocorrect at times. But the accessibility across devices is great. I can be editing or typing on my phone, and immediately switch to my computer and it updates in real time. This is also helpful for class projects, wherein I can be working with a group and we will all edit in real time and work on the same project, whether it’s an essay, brainstorming, or on the other google groups, the Slides app for PowerPoints. My biggest complaint over everything is just that each part of the google drive docket comes as a separate app. Docs is separate from Slides is separate from Spreadsheets is separate from plain ole Google Drive.

- Great! But one problem...

Hey I love the app. I really do. It’s probably one of my most used apps on my phone. But I have a slight problem. I think the most recent update. But my Docs app closes too often/ soon. I tend to use the app and then switch to reply to a message or post something. It’s a pretty quick transaction. And then when I come back to docs I'm taking out onto the main screen. It’s honestly very annoying. The time it takes to load the page I was just on is longer too. And it happens EVERY TIME I leave. Is there a way to fix this? There was a time when it would stay exactly where I was after being inactive for hours! And now it leaves in a matter of seconds. Please change this. I’d like to be able to use other features on my phone while still being able to get back to my docs in a timely manner.

- Great for On The Go Lifestyle

Kid you not, I'm a 21 unit university student, working full time this semester. Having this app on my iPhone has saved my grades, as I don't have to carry my macbook around to finish up my papers and such. I just write a paragraph or two during my lunch hour, or during a bathroom break (don't kid yourself that you don't do it too lol), or whenever I have a few minutes to spare, and by the end of the day, I've already finished up my paper(s) while I was running around at work, doing errands, etc. I saw Thor in theaters with a friend of mine and decided to write whatever I could for an industrial health course I'm taking in that one sitting during the previews. I was able to get half of my paper done right before Thor began! When I got home, I only had to spend an extra 15 minutes on it, then I turned it in. Great use of time! I love this app!

- I like Google Docs

I use Google Docs for all my essays in class [on computer] and for other projects but the iOS version does not live up to it. I use an iPad Pro and it’s very hard to navigate through a document. Also the find and replace option either does not work, or is basically impossible on finding out how to work. I’ve tried countless times to use it over the past few months and have given up by either manually replacing the word or using my computer instead. Edit: all of these have been fixed and the app is awesome now! It’s very easy to use when I have no access to a computer. One thing that needs to be added to the app and computer version though is a dark mode! Sometimes I like writing in the middle of the night and a dark mode would make it much easier to do that.

- The best for anything!

Google Docs has been the most useful app for me to be able to create multiple pages of Stories, Characters, Poems, and more! This is often the go to app for schools. It’s very simple to be able to share it to others like teachers or other students for projects, and that’s not the only limit since I use it when sharing with friends. I use this both in the computer and with my iPad. With google doc just logging in to your account is very quick and it holds all your data for you so you don’t need to worry which is a great relieve! I hope that this app stays on forever because I won’t be able to find another app like this, being free as well. If there were any recommendations I also like Google Slides although it’s a bit harder to use on the go. Sincerely, Google Doc User.

- Like it, but missing some features here and there

While I like the efficiency and simplicity of Google Docs on mobile as well as on the desktop, I feel that is missing some features from the desktop version on Mac and Windows. While picking out new fonts on the desktop version was easy to use, the mobile version doesn’t offer it. Whereas on a computer, where a menu appeared on the top of the screen every time you wanted something, here on mobile everything is streamlined to make use of the real estate on a tablet or smartphone. And I like that. Furthermore, while on a laptop or desktop, you could right-click on an underlined word to correct spelling errors, on a tablet or smartphone, it lacks the need for it. So, my advice for you users is this: if you crave simplicity or efficiency, download the app. But if you want more professional style, stick with the app on a computer.

- Greatest thing about Docs

The thing I like best about Google Docs is its use over time. I know a Google Engineer and he clued me in on this one. We are part of a larger, mostly volunteer organization. It’s been around for a while, and many of the documents from 20 years ago, done with other word processing programs, are not find-able, but when we do find them they are no longer readable with current software. Google docs will not have either of those problems—as long as Google goes on the Docs will be available and readable. The problem of incompatibility of software, not just between users but also over time, goes away. In so many other ways Google Docs is vastly improved over the early versions. And I really like that both Docs and Sheets are available on all devices.

- great computer version, but...

Google Docs is amazing tool for school, and a great app for writing. You can connect with friends, editors, and co-authors on the same document, and the layout is beautiful. Although, the app is pretty limited and does not provide the full experience of Google Docs. I would recommend this over competing brands, such as Word, but the grammar and spelling check doesn’t work very well. Also, a great addition would be to add folders to put the Docs in. As a clean-freak, it’s a bit stressful having a hundred different documents floating around with no way to group the ones for school and the ones for stories. They have this feature in Drive, but it doesn’t translate over to Docs. But overall, Docs is hands down the greatest word processor I’ve ever used! With some little tweaks in the future, this will be the perfect word processor for professional and personal use! -leah

- Google Docs is a My Dream Come True

My personal computer is a Mac and I use it a LOT for work. At work our computers are all HP. For years I have spent countless hours trying to convert documents so that they are readable on each device, wasting precious time. I also use notes on my phone a lot and then always have to copy, paste to an email, send to my computer, paste to a word document on my computer, etc... thus a long process. With google docs, i can work on the same project from my phone, personal computer, work computer, tablet, heck anyone’s device because it is all saved and it is all right in front of me! I agree with another review that the option for folders would be nice, but I’m seriously just so happy to be able to work on all projects in the same place!

- Great layout, easy to use...but lacking

I have been a huge fan of Google Docs for about 6 years, using it primarily for school and research. I recently bought an iPad Pro to help my productivity, using Google Docs as one of my main word processing apps. So far, I enjoy the app very much, as it is very smooth and simple to use (the layout is very clean). However, the main complaint I have is that the app is very limited in comparison to its desktop counterpart, mainly the lack of the ability to use add-ons. I am dependent on add-ons like Paperpile or XLMiner Analysis (for Sheets) and am pretty disappointed it is not available for the apps. I think this would be a fairly simple feature to add in the future. In addition, I feel like it is not showcasing the full capabilities of the iPad Pro as it can. Overall, great app but seriously lacking in certain areas compared to the desktop version.

- Good, but pls optimize this app for more heavy usage

While this app is a great substitute for the PC version of Docs, its not fully optimized for IOS or apps. Its nice if you’re quickly pulling up a document to type something up that’s last minute or doesn’t require a lot of time or presentation, but for people who use the app heavily, like on the iPad Pro, it’s frustrating. For one, the Office-Docs compatibility format doesn’t save, which means that in order to print you have to make a billion copies on order for it to save in an edited, print ready format, which even then doesn’t work. Another frustrating feature is that multiple documents can’t be opened and viewed at the same time, which should be possible for iPad Pro split screen viewing but unfortunately is not and leads to annoying back and forth flipping. Overall, good app if wanting to make last minute tweaks, but for heavy users, this app needs some work.

- Great App But One Major Issue

I feel like it’s easier to format documents on docs than on other apps like word. I love the app and appreciate the fact that it will save things automatically for me, so if my iPad sporadically dies after an hour-long writing session and I don’t get to press save, it’s already saved for me, so there’s no problem there. My only problem is the keyboard. I don’t type incredibly fast, but my keyboard will “jam” up and even after I’ve typed a whole sentence, it’ll take up to an additional thirty seconds to finish typing out on the doc. And when my sentences get too long, the app will crash. Again, thank goodness for the auto save! But it’s frustrating to have to wait for so long to have my writing typed out, and even more so when it crashes and I lose my “flow”. Other than that, it’s a simple design and I love it, but is there anything you could do about the keyboard?

- A game changer!! I Love It!!

Google docs is amazing and is a real game changer! I use it for all different things- to keep track of notes to myself, to type up things I want to print later, to have a place to cut and paste things. I also have used it very successfully to share documents with others, individuals or groups/committees, so that multiple people can add to or edit a document. This came in hugely helpful when I chaired a charity event last year. Everything my committee needed was on Google Docs, so we were all on the same page and very organized. I also appreciate updates that have been made, such as better formatting options. All in all I have found it extremely useful and helpful and have not had any problems with it. Two thumbs up 👍🏻👍🏻

- Love this app!

Overall, great app. I love to write so I’ve been using this app for years and it’s great. It doesn’t crash often, lets you work offline, it’s easy to use and share, and the best part is it doesn’t spam you with any adds. As a student, it is a bit annoying and glitchy when I have copies of documents with photos (it makes writing where I want a pain), but whatever. My main complaint is that there’s not more options. I have ~20 fonts, a decent but not great variety of colors, and it just doesn’t feel very customizable. I understand that it’s a writing app, but sometimes I do really wish I had more options (especially with fonts, on my iPad at least). I would recommend this app to everyone, just maybe get a font extension if it bothers you tons.

- Great App, but Needs More Functionality

The Google docs is very limiting as a power user on the iPad. I just recently upgraded to the iPad Pro and was hoping to use it as a replacement for my MacBook since the majority of the things that I do are either Google related or for school which works fine online. I wouldn’t say that the Google Docs iPad app is horrible, however, at times I find it becomes laggy which makes it difficult, and it would be very useful if I had the capability to open multiple docs side by side. Most of the functionality of Google Docs is available on the iPad app, however, multitasking is very limiting as well as performance at times. I would love to see the kinks worked out because Google Docs is so awesome. It’d be great to have the best of both worlds. I often find myself going back to my MacBook for those capabilities and think there’s so much more potential for the app on iPad.

- Editing/Commenting a Nightmare!!

I’m a hobby artist, so I recently decided to ditch my personal laptop in favor an an iPad and iPencil (I still have a work laptop). The Google Docs App, though, has made this transition incredibly difficult! First, Google blocks access to the browser version of Google Docs if you are using an iPad. Nevermind that the screen is the same size as my old MacBook. Nevermind that I have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. The Google Docs app is my ONLY option for accessing google docs from my iPad. And unfortunately, the App is not an adequate replacement. The toolbar is pared down, and much harder to navigate. It took me forever to figure out how to change the setting for link-sharing, so that anyone with the link could edit. And the “suggest changes” function is incredibly clunky. The changes all show up as “hidden suggestions” or “hidden comments”, and the person viewing them has to laboriously click every individual suggestion and “view suggestion.” It’s also very difficult to do anything other than “accept” or “reject” once you have found a suggestion. If the suggestion requires more nuanced editing, forget it! Overall, the app works in a bind, but it is not a very intuitive app and it is a very inferior product to the browser version! Please consider a redesign Google, or at the very least allowing the browser version to be accessed in-browser on an iPad!

- Recommended

This app is fantastic, it is really easy to use and you can make changes to essays and documents while driving to sport. Along with this the sharing feature is very useful as you can share documents with peers or teachers for feed back with two clicks. Coming from a school which doesn’t provide office in which you can share docs like this. It’s much easier to share on google docs as oppose to email a word document, get it reviewed and then open it and save it and make changes. This app is almost flawless however I have one problem with it, I hate the way the formatting and text section is laid out. I would rather it be a button which drops down the specific tools needed. Example, I would prefer if it the letter icon would drop down all the text options (colour font ect) and another icon drop down the formatting icons. I know it isn’t possible to put those in one bar due to screen size but I do that that the icon idea would be easier to use.

- Love how generous google is in giving us a place to store documents

I really appreciate the generosity of Google in giving so freely a place for me to store my documents online. I really appreciate that. I would love to see their products be more child friendly though. Unfortunately there are no parental controls on their new pixel phone. This is where Apple has been responsible. It would be nice to see google make the internet a whole lot safer for kids as well by making it so much more difficult for kids to access porn, Maybe insist on all porn companies to have a completely plain entrance with no porn pictures. And to look to making this public space that we all enjoy more safer by blocking all nude images. I don’t see nudes when I go out shopping in public in real life and I would appreciate it if the internet had a little bit of an overhaul using some common sense and put up a more public friendly internet. Google, please be more responsible instead of bowing down to the big payload you get from porn companies so they can prey on children. All children should be freely given their right to enjoy their innocence.

- Really, Really Bad App

This app is horrible. Unlike the version on the computer you can not chat with people when they are on the same doc, making collaboration impossible. This app has absolutely NO compatibility with hyperlinks. You can’t change the browser your link sends you to and also can not delete hyperlinks. You try to and it will either take you straight to the website OR it will stop and freeze instantly. When that happens, you can not use it until you swipe it up and go back in. Even then, once you do that it still won’t work. Horrible, Horrible app. Very Disappointed.

- Can Be Really Annoying

This app can be really annoying to use, especially on iPads. On iPads, I usually cannot move or change the size of the pictures that I put in. It is a lot more limited than something like Microsoft Word, and isn’t nearly as good as editing grammar, punctuation, or suggesting edits to do with grammar. It can sometimes glitch and when you are using it for work or school this can irritate me a lot. Although to be fair, it is reasonably easy to use when you are not adding images or any other things like that. On laptops it is a lot easier to use because it is set out differently and has more actions. It is simple when sharing documents with other people and is good for when you just want to type up a simple document with nothing to complicated to add into it.

- Amazing app!

I actually use it at school and at home, and it’s absolutely amazing! I don’t know what I would do without it! Plus, you can use it offline, unlike many other apps like this one. Once, I was doing online learning school, when I couldn’t do any work because there was no internet. Docs saved me because... well you know. 🤩🤪 I highly recommend getting this app,!! The only thing/ problem is that, well, there is no problem. An that is a problem because there’s no point in writing this thing cuz everyone would say this apps great. 👍 100%!!!💯

- Glitch.

In the beginning, or rather when I began using this app, it was great. Since that time it has become increasingly more unstable. It glitches, shutting down mid-typing and then doesn’t even save the work (even after I’ve clicked the ‘done’ tick. It happened repeatedly in the space of ten minutes and I have rewritten the same sentences too many times. I’m hoping there will be some updates to this as soon as possible because I have been predominately using this for my work on my laptop and as it’s collaboration work it’s imperative to be used on google drive until the project is finished. If it continues, I can only recommend switching to OneDrive (I use this for my other teaching job) as it does not seem to have this issue.

- Amazing

Docs is an amazing up I can literally use it anywhere and it is so easy to use. I love the app and I also like how we can switch accounts so that we can have different documents for our school/ work/ personal life. The only thing is that I print my documents at my work and I have to convert every file to a PDF otherwise it changes how my Google Documents look when I have the hard copy. Other than that it is a great app with a lot of versatility.

- A very annoying bug

There is this really annoying bug that basically makes files impossible to work on It involves word files, and if you copy them and work on them and go out of the file, the file will say and error occured’ and you can’t go back in and edit again, which is really annoying and must be fixed. There is also a bug related to this which makes the whole page shift and typing past that line will result in the words being invisible but still there. I lost a bunch of my work because of this - please fix

- Input lag

Along with some other reviews here, I think that this app needs to be fixed. It is the best idea- a cloud, collaborative app that can be used in conjunction with google docs for computers. However the execution is terrible. When I am typing the app will be a full paragraph behind and I watch it slowly catch up to where I am at, which skips characters. When you click select all it takes 20 seconds to load and by then if you click anything it closes the doc or deletes all. The input lag is terrible. The features available are nothing compared to google docs online. You can’t resize images and the app is broke. Please fix

- wow

i totally reccomend this app for teachers, students and workers needed for their assignments. there is never any glitches and it works wonderfully without an internet source, meaning you could always do your work. Google docs allows me to be creative and arrange my writing, create graphs etc. Google docs also runs smoothly with free writing assistant Grammarly. i hope my message encourages you to try it out and believe what im trying to say about this remarkable app. keep up the good work google. 👏🏻👍🤗🤩

- The perfect writing tool

Originally, I used pages to write my things and I still do write stories on it today. Then, one of my friends introduced me to a program called google drive, which was amazingly useful for some of the things I do. But there was one problem about it, I could figure out how to write on it. I searched through the whole app, and then in the corner I spotted, google docs. It became such a useful writing tool for things that I want to share!!

- Just amazing to have cloud store document

I get use to this google document when I forced to switched from Microsoft word to G- doc. Eventually, I stared to like this and now it’s my full time tool to do my personal work as well as the studies . I am a blogger also I have back pain so I can’t sit long in a place so time to time I switch my work from laptop to mobile phone or tablet . I am a rider who love outdoor camping so I can do my work wherever I want . This is simply amazing.

- This app is a good educational app!

This app is easy to use because you can edit and create story’s and brainstorm ideas I recommend you should try this if you read this or your getting this app but one thing I have to announce that you have to put your google account in before you use the app and if you have bad internet connection you can possibly have to do the verification again :( but I still think you should try it:)🤞🙂

- My Review (must read)

This app is very useful for school, work etc. This app has many great features and is very helpful in multiple ways. The auto correct to help you make it look fancy with a different fonts there is many things you can do to make your work just a little bit extra I would rate this app 5 out of 5 I use this pretty much every day and it’s so helpful for me I would definitely recommend this app!!!

- most stupid app ever

UGH. THIS STUPID THING DOESN’T WORK PROPERLY AND IS SO FRUSTRATING! 1) It glitches and recently it refused to let me open a doc which was an important assignment for school. Luckily, I was able to open it on the safari version and continue working on it. But still, regardless of the fact that I modified it and made a copy, it still wouldn’t open on the app version. I have had to delete and reinstall it multiple times. 2) Whenever I’m in a group document, nothing I do can be seen on my classmate’s screens. We all tried restarting the app and my friend eventually completely turned off her iPad, but it still didn’t work. 3) What’s with the lack of fonts and tools? This app is so lame. There are barely any features. It is nothing compared to Word. And not to mention it’s difficult to move and crop photos. Seriously, how hard is it for Google to make a decent word app? So please Google developers, actually put effort into your applications. This app is truly mediocre and I’m sad its actually required for school. Disappointing.

- Line Spacing

Please make it available to iPads, iPhones and other touchscreen devices to be able to choose if there's going to be an extra space between paragraphs when you press enter. Because when I'm doing dialogue it puts another space in because it thinks it's another paragraph. But for some reason you can choose whether or not you can have this on computers but not touch screen devices. So please make this setting available to touch screen devices. It would be appreciated.

- Author’s perspective

As an author without Microsoft Word, this is the next best thing. Pages Mac OS doesn’t seem to have the same settings and format styles, but Google docs seems to be the right styles, and it’s easier to use for book formatting and writing. The next best program would be Adobe InDesign, which I have, being a graphic design student, but it’s not a mobile and portable app. Google Docs can be used on computers and mobile devices online and offline.

- Self Published Author Eathen Carruthers

I have been a Self Published Author of History for just over 3 years and I discovered Google Docs only 2016 it is a amazing app in the sense you need to save your documents it saves them automatically So you can go back to them whenever and also you have we’re ever you go for printing purposes you don’t have access to a computer Google Docs is on your phone it’s just handy and simple Just love it Eathen Carruthers, Author

- Amazing

I love google docs, I love writing stories and it is the best. Although, sometimes it does a red underline for a word which is spelt correctly and is in the right context. I would also suggest that you can make a option to turn it into a book set up (horizontal and the words reach the middle...etc.) but other than the correction thing, google docs is really good. Thank you so much for reading this. ❤️❤️❤️ -Unicornpoop 🦄🦄🦄

- Crashes and lags

Ok, so I have a massive document that I’m always on, if I can actually try to type without the app crashing first the lag is so severe that I’m typing and it takes up to ten seconds to respond for each letter meaning that I will have typed an entire sentence before it actually does anything and then it might just crash anyway before it loads. Although this problem is only really for one document that has an obscene amount of pages it is really annoying since it’s my main document.

- Students Dream

This app allows me to access all my documents no matter what device, which is really helpful for students such as myself. If i do work on the school laptops, it is already on my Ipad! This is so great because not all brands and devices are compatible which is a huge pain. Thanks to this application, my geography homework will be in on time! I highly reccomend this app, it is compatible with gmail AND chrome!

- Only one downside but it gets very annoying

Trying to open a google doc from Facebook messenger on iPad is a pain. Even with google docs installed on my iPad Pro, iOS is too dumb to open the document with the app. Instead, it opens up the App Store to download.... Please fix this. It’s very annoying. I think iOS is a solid operating system but this is just pure stupidity and it really breaks my workflow.

- Good app to upgrade resume’s

I find this app very helpful as I really needed something that’ll will fit my needs in updating my resume, before applying for a new job this app made it swift and easy to complete straight away. Overall this a good app to recommend for anyone to use if you no other devices to use or can make it to a close by library.

- Don’t even bother!!!

I had been happily working on it’s predecessor for months when Google bought it out, and it was Rubbish ever after. Just typing is tedious beyond belief. The screen can lag up to thirty seconds behind the key strokes, and back spacing is worse. I can no longer user it, and am trying desperately to find a simple word processor that works!!! I may still have to go back to pen and paper at this rate. If this was only on my old iPad 2, or iPhone 4 (Using an iPhone 6 now), I could say it’s just the fact I need to upgrade. They destroyed a great word processor, one I wrote 400,000 words with only praise for it’s creators. NOT HAPPY :(

- Google docs

This app is good for work, but what annoys me is that when your writing in a specific font, pressing return will cause it to turn back into Arial, the original font. Also, changing it to, say, Animatic SC, and then changing the size, it will then go right back to Arial. Please stop this from happening! It is plain horrible and super frustrating!!! Also, maybe make a little bit more fonts, because not a lot of them are very interesting and presentable! Sorry for this, but it is all true.

- Not really my cup of tea, not great for use on iPads

The controls and set up of this app would be great for a desktop application, but not for mobile devices such as iPads, which I use. It’s jumpy, inserting and moving around pictures can be a pain, and it can get some pretty bad glitches, along with sometimes crashing and not saving my work... It honestly just feels like a desktop app scaled down for mobile use, which I guess is okay for occasional use, but not if you need a good app for frequent use for schoolwork or hobby writing. I don’t recommend it if you need an app to use frequently on your mobile device. We use it for our schoolwork because it DOES have some easy sharing/group editing features, which is why I’m giving it 2/5 instead of 1/5. Sorry, it’s just not my cup of tea. It doesn’t really feel very well done, in my opinion.

- Ok, but ...

Works ok, and has never lost any of my work. These comments are about the iPad version. Doesn't implement the paste button on the keyboard of recent ios versions. Doesn't restore app to previous state after being forced out of memory by using other apps - you need to reopen the document you had open. Doesn't behave well with the two finger cursor moving gesture, especially when selecting text.

- It’s Okay

When you are collaborating with others it can get a bit delayed. When you add people you have to search them like crazy!! Something is missing though, I would like to get notifications when someone is editing my work. I am known as a very organised person. To me? Well it’s okay. They have folders for that but I would like to have tags. Otherwise as I have’s okay

- Mostly great

I love this app and have been using it for years. Generally it is really good, though sometimes slow to update when I change back and forth between documents. My major annoyance is that I cannot open two versions of the app at the same time, as you can with many apps. I can't have two different documents open in two separate windows so I can work on both. It drives me crazy having to switch back and forth.

- Love it!

I love using google docs, I haven’t found a problem with it before, it’s easily accessible on all my electronics and it doesn’t take up storage on my phone. It’s also just really easy to use and you can work on documents without internet! But do you think you could make a dark mode? That’s pretty much my only advice.

- One of the most used apps for me

I am studying a few second languages. Google Docs is the app for me to carry and share my documents while on the go, with friends all over the worlds. And we can edit the same doc together while we are going through the finer points on grammar and expressions. And the best thing is, it's free!

- Good, but annoyingly laggy on ipad

Love the accessibility, richness of features and ability to share easily. (Am using it to write a novel with a co-author.) However, it is so laggy both online and offline with an iPad that I have taken to copying the document into another app, writing there, and then transferring when I am done. Give; it is meant for on the go writing and editing, it sort of falls down there. If your main access is on laptop and desktop, you are probably ok (and so have I) but too difficult for those travelling light.

- recommended (everyone has different views)

it has good if you were to write any essays or plan things in general. Docs saves all work and written changes that have been made. great system overall but be mind full that anyone can have access over it when they know your password and details ect.

- Really handy.

I have been using docs for ages, either for school or personal writing, right now I’ve been trying to write a book and I used to really struggle remembering notes and ideas I had, ever since I installed the docs app on my phone it has made writing notes and story’s while I’m on the bus extremely easy.

- Great App For Productivity

It’s rather straight forward and easy to use works like a charm even when documents are edited across different devices. Feels constrained and not fully featured like the on a computer I had trouble trying to add rows and columns to a table in a document taping and selecting to hold for options takes a bit of getting used to. Besides that typing up essays or word documents is easily doable.

- Good for doing job applications on the go

Used this today on my iPhone to submit a job application through a third party job site. Was able to easily do a cover letter, put that in iCloud and then submit my job application without having to fire up my computer or Microsoft Office. Very convenient does what it says on the box.

- Functionality great, system could be better

The word processing interface is great, has everything I need for note taking, export etc. Only woe is that the filing system is arduous. To save a document in a particular folder, I need to enter the Google Drive app, which is time consuming on a tablet device. Would love if the files came up in Google Docs rather than just Drive.

- Recommended to any Writing-lovers

Great how I can access documents created on Drive on a Windows computer. This is my favourite writing app, and as a student who has got ‘A’s in every report in Writing so far, this app is a brilliant typing app , and I would recommend it to anyone who loves writing! Thanks so much for making this!!!


I love this app, it’s so handy and easy to use especially for students that can’t get any of the Microsoft apps on their device. As well as group assignments and homework tasks. My one critique is I wish that you can accurately crop photos. There is a crop tool but it’s not very accurate and it doesn’t allow you to crop the edges of a shape in a photo. Other than that it’s a really great app. I use it all the time. 👌

- Absolute Garbage.

I can’t open a document for more than 5 seconds before this worthless application decides that it wants to crash. I keep doing this REPEATEDLY to no avail and it won’t stop. My device is rather high end but this just isn’t working. I can’t even type 2 letters at max before this thing entirely dies on me. It won’t even save because it only uploads to the drive WHEN I CLOSE THE DOCUMENT and it doesn’t help when by crashing it won’t save. All I want are the issues to be fixed and then maybe this could get a 3 star or something.

- The input lag was never fixed

For years, whenever I’ve tried to type in a Google Doc on my tablet, it has taken a long time for the text that I’ve typed to actually register on the keyboard, to the extent that, after finishing a paragraph, I have been forced to stop working for several minutes while I wait for the app to catch up. Keep in mind that this issue has been prevalent for the past five years I’ve been using the app, (across every device I’ve used it on, no less) and not once has it been resolved.

- 👍

I used docs through my high school life and now still use it. Other than one time when docs crashed (I was completing a year 12 assessment and lost all my work lol)it’s really good. Auto saving and simple task bars make this program easy to navigate, I like that I can transfer from my phone to my laptop or to a printer. Keeps up with the constant growing technology.

- Weird Glitch on my iPad Air 2

I used to love google docs, but now, there is some glitch when it it in the background app section of my iPad. When I close the app (go to the homescreen) but leave google docs in the backround apps section, when I go to the app, the screen will turn black and the only way to fix it is to remove the app from the background apps and restart the app again. Can you please solve this problem? If you could I would give you five stars.

- Easy comprehensive and free

It is easy to use and very comprehensive word processor, I use it for taking notes and for larger documents. I like the speed it syncs between my phone tablet and computer. I also use sheets spreadsheet and google keep for for note taking notes it is really quick and easy to use

- Recommended for Students

This app is free, which means budget friendly and is google based. All the files you create could be uploaded to i cloud, which makes it so much easier. It is easy for starters, and practically capable for more frequent users. The only problem is that it gets laggy when to much people on it but other then that it is great!

- Docs

This google docs app that has been created and has been very useful as I use it for projects and sorts of other stuff for school My friends use it to and my teachers use it to. My google account lets me use ever google app used on the account I will use google docs as well in the future too <3 -~*____&~{ ^§§*😍😍😍

- What a refreshing change!

I got very tired of using Microsoft Word on my iPad. Too much nagging and way too many restrictions if you don’t wish to pay a fee. Not so with Google Docs. Easy to use, friendly and has the ability to share documents quickly and simply.

- Such an amazing app!

I absolutely love Google Docs! Being able to type on your iPad and then continue from your computer is fantastic! One thing I would like to see though, is accessibility of documents through Files on iOS 11. This may be difficult due to the offline mode, but it would be nice to have at hand. Thanks so much Google!

- Great, but a weird bug

I use docs for almost everything. It’s fantastic- but on my ipad (im a student so i have to use an ipad) I cannot move pictures around or change the size of them. I really need to be able to do this so I am having to go into pages which isn’t as good, just so i can move the picture around. Other than that its great.

- Amazing!

I love docs! They are great for big documents! Sometimes when I exit and renter the app (without closing the document), the app crashes and restarts. This is only annoying, but my document still saves. This may happen because they are such big files. Anyway, it’s no stress.

- Great

Very fast and durable website love google docs

- Super Helpful👍👍

We use Google Docs for pretty much all schoolwork, and its great that we can work on it at school, and at home on your personal devices. Its also nice that we don't need Wi-Fi to edit or create documents. I love this, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone, especially students and teachers!

- Extremely efficient

Very organized and perfect for school work. Definitely a five star rating. Love all the features and there’s no wifi needed!

- What's the fuss about?

Google docs is equivalent to MSWord. Google sheets is equivalent to MS Excel. They can be stored and collaboratively edited on google drive. The google doc app for a smartphone let's you view and edit docs on that device, not the best place to do that but better than not being able to do it. In my experience, docs, sheets, and drive work quite smoothly across devices. So what are people complaining about? No superscripts? No chemical formulas? Really? That's an issue for most people?

- Awesome!!! 😀

Saves good and all way can find stuff and Nevers loses your stuff.

- Useful

Highly useful for creating slideshows, documents, and other office and school type work.

- Ok Boomer

- Sucks

Before I even turn around things are messed up

- Poor iPadOS support

Does not support the magic keyboard very well. Still optimized for touch. I deleted and just used the online version in safari. I would give it 5 stars if they add true support for Magic Keyboard


This app is so helpful and it really can do everything that you need it to do for you I use this for a lot of my school work and it’s pretty amazing if you don’t know if you should get it I’m so happy it’s free and you should get it it’s really just .... well great I don’t know what else to say it’s great.

- Great for Writing!

I like to write story's, poems, music, etc. so this is perfect. There’s lots of fonts, different sizes, and it’s all really accessible. My only complaint is that when I’m writing with is sometimes it’ll kick me out of the app? Strange, but I still use it. Also the documents will take a little bit to load depending on how long they are. The google feature helps me open it up rather than having to go through the page again after getting out, so that’s helpful. I actually wrote this on google docs and copied and pasted it 😂 Really great for writers. I’ve only used it on my phone though, so I don’t know if there are any other bugs I haven’t mentioned. Other than the Kicking of Me and pages loading, it’s great. I’d suggest it to anyone willing to lend an ear.

- This app is my saving grace

I’ve had so many short stories, novellas, and full novels saved by Google Docs. When my computer crashed and had to be wiped (since got a new one, but the loss was felt!), I was terrified I’d potentially lost over ten years of writing. I’d switched to Docs about a month prior and hadn’t realized it was all still there until I opened the app on my phone and saw everything was right there. It was a huge relief. My only issue with the mobile app is that it sometimes lags as I’m typing, and I can be three sentences ahead before it finally begins to stutter out the first. It’s so frustrating, especially when I see tons of typos and have to rewrite it all. I’d thought it was my old iPhone 4, but it’s the same with the iPhone 8 now too.

- Great alternative to Apple Notes app

The most awesome thing about these smart phones is the ability to collaborate at a distance on documents using things like the checklist feature. Unfortunately, Apple’s Note app only works on iPhones 😔. Google Docs is a wonderful alternative allowing colleagues to collaborate with any device. I would give the Google Docs app the fifth star if it had a real checklist bullet that I could check with my finger on a smart phone screen. (Of course, it probably has earned the fifth star already because 1) unlike Apple’s Note app, Google docs keep track of who checks off which items in a checklist, (albeit using the check icon ✅ in our group), and 2) because notes can be kept in a sub, of a sub, of a sub folder 📁 allowing for superior organization of notes for professional and academic work groups.

- Been using for awhile now.

Okay, so a few years back a dear friend showed my docs on my computer. We co-write (rp) together, and it gives a great place to do that since you can share with anyone else using docs. The grammar and spelling check is really nice, and the auto save feature is great! The reason the app gets four and not five stars is because the phone app itself has issues with larger docs(like 30 pages, I think) and won’t load well after that point. I understand why though, and am not actually bothered by it too much since I still have a computer, but I do have to notice which documents ARE that large, because it’ll sometimes it freezes up my phone(needing a restart). The phone app is also a bit more complicated to navigate than the computer version, but it is easy enough.


I use google docs all the time, so I’m really hoping you guys fix the bug that won’t allow us to open docs once we update to IOS 11. I updated on my IPad Pro can’t open docs, I didn’t update on my iPhone 6s yet, I can open docs fine like normal.. please fix this or I’m going to have to uninstall you. Most every other app has already fixed their issues with the new 11 update.. I waited a few days to see if google would update and so far, well your behind everyone else. Now I can’t use my IPad when I need to the most, but am inconvenienced and have to use my phone. If people have 2 devices I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ONLY UPDATING ONE AT FIRST ! Because some haven’t fixed bugs, and you won’t be able to use their app, not with this update. It really stinks for those that depend on services using one device. But hopefully a better product will be replacing google soon anyway.

- Fix this

I always use this app as my go-to for schoolwork, but there are so many issues. For one, when I try to select a few certain words, it either selects the whole row and the one below it and it won’t let me unselect it, or it selects one letter and won’t move. And when I am making a list like: 1. (Words) 2. (Words) And so on, when I try to return down to start an example, it creates a 3 and then I return again and it disappears. I write my new thought and type 3. And then click the space bar and it doesn’t do anything. I spacebar the 3. up to where the rest are so it looks clean, and when it starts a new sentence behind the list, I can’t space it up like the rest. The spacebar does nothing. I have to create white text to move it up. And when I tab on those sentences trying to align them, it tabs over the sentence above the one I am on and when I click the delete to undo the tab, it moves up again and deletes the last letter on that section. It is just so frustrating. Please fix these.

- App is great, but I’m having a problem...

Okay, I’ve been using Google Docs for a while now. It’s amazing, reliable, and easy to use. I use it for school and for personal use. But lately I’ve been having trouble with it, and I think I might be the only one? I don’t know, but it’s kind of weird. For some odd reason, my Google Docs (on my iPad) has been really frustrating lately—the italics font doesn’t work. I have to delete Google Docs every time for it to work, but then when I leave the app, and try typing in italics, I’m right back at square one. I honestly don’t know what the problem is, but I think it might have to do with the case I have on my iPad. It’s like a regular case, but has a keyboard attached, making it look like a laptop. I’m not sure what it is, though, and I’d really appreciate it if I could get some help. Thanks!

- Something’s up with my app

I’ve been using google docs a lot over my past school years because it’s such a reliable source to work on with your classmates on projects and classwork assigned to you by your teacher on google classroom. It works fine on the computer, but the app refuses to let me sign into google docs because of an apparent “device policy alert”. I don’t get this: i’ve updated my google docs app to the latest version, my iphone to the latest version and even tried restarting my phone and deleting and re-downloading the app. Nothing seems to work. It used to be so helpful to have this app on my phone so even if I'm miles away from the nearest computer, I could work on my schoolwork. But now this device policy alert removes my ability to work on it at all. I hope this is just a bug or glitch, or the app comes out with a new update deleting this blockage.

- A few improvements and it’ll be just what I need

Don’t get me wrong, Google Docs is pretty cool. But there are just a few errors that make it almost unuseable and having me search for an alternative. Being blind, I use voiceover to navigate and use my iPad and iPhone 6. And for the most part, google docs works great with said screen reader. It lets you know what formatting you have in place and navigating tables is a breeze. But that stupid key echo. Whenever I type, it says each and every character even though i set it to only repeat words. Not to mention the fact that whenever I delete a character, instead of saying the character in a low pitch (like it’s suppose to) it says ‘selection deleted. Which makes it very hard to keep track of how much I’ve deleted. Also it doesn’t speak spaces when I use the arrow keys on my keyboard to move the cursor but that’s not as big an issue as the ones mentioned above. One more thing, I like to type my documents and then import them to scrivener, but there doesn’t seem to be a simple way to do this. Instead of having the traditional share window show up there’s this weird menu about formats and stuff? I don’t even know. But maybe I don’t know how to do it maybe there is a way. Thanks for reading and I hope you take my suggestions into consideration.


I really like Google Docs because of how convenient it is! Say you’re in a car with somebody and you forgot to type the ending to a school project in your account, well you can just use Google Docs and get it done! You don’t know HOW MANY TIMES THIS APP HAS COME IN HANDY. Especially because I only have my device right now to access my account. One thing though, I really wish that it wasn’t so confusing. I’ve had this app for a long time and I STILL can’t figure out if you can share a document or if you can’t! And if you CAN share a document, HOW? Where’s the share button?? HELP! But I find it kinda weird how everything kind of tends to be... EVERYWHERE. To me, I find it really hard to find some things I need at the moment. Like tools for changing the font, or font size. But other than that ONE MINOR PROBLEM, I LOVE THIS APP!!!!!

- Great for a basic college student.

I am a college student and I am constantly between classes trying to pull out my tablet to work on my papers for different classes. I started using Docs in general because then I could bounce between my tablet at school and my desk top at home. But when I discovered this app it made life so much easier because I'm always on my phone too! I am able to write my papers then go to my tablet or desk top to ensure it is formatted right (I am just not tech savvy with this app) and then I can save a word form of the paper and turn it in online. All the google apps like Google slides, forms, etc are amazing to use and do what you need. I don't know how to do spread sheets or anything fancy but it gets me by with ease when it comes to basic papers!

- Use This... Stories, Schoolwork, etc.!

I write stories, and I aspire to be an author or a language arts teacher when I’m older. In school, I can’t write many fictional stories, mostly personal narratives, but I’m quite honestly running low on stories about myself and can’t help the fact that all of my stories turn even the slightest fictional. We used this in class for personal narratives, and once in fourth grade something for Father’s Day. I went home after the first day of using this and started writing out my fictional stories from notebooks. I spent hours and hours writing and writing. On google docs. See, even this is a little fictional, because I only spent one hour. Haha, sorry. But the next day, I did it again! And everyday since. Get this app!

- So, it’s not terrible...

Google Docs is ok, not great, not terrible. My main problem is docs with pictures in them. On a computer, the document is fine, no problems with the pictures, with the app, it is a huge problem. After finishing the doc with pictures on my Mac, I opened the same doc, expecting everything to be in the same place. Boy was I wrong. Pictures were scattered across the document in places where I did not put them at all. Pictures that I had set for the text to wrap around broke up the entire text. Pictures I had set next to each other were separated, rendering them moot. I understand that it is difficult to make every feature on the computer Google Docs available on the app, but for an iPad, at least the pictures should stay where I put them. Please fix if by some slim chance someone from Google is reading this.

- Terrible for iPad

Don’t get me wrong, I like google docs. It’s very easy to collaborate and share amongst others, and there are plenty of useful templates. That’s where my favor ends. Let’s start with the overall features. There are way fewer capabilities than on the website. There are so many things that I need to do that simply cant be done in the app. Next we move on to the support of accessories. I use a 2018 iPad Pro with the new magic keyboard that has a trackpad. On virtually all other apps there is built in cursor support, not on google docs. What I mean by cursor support is the cursor adapting to what its scrolling over. For example in other apps if you go over text the cursor changes to a text selector. It is a nightmare to select text on google docs. here are also no built in command shortcuts for the app. It’s also worth mentioning there is no trackpad or keyboard shortcut support for ANY of the Google suite of apps. Google could’ve made this app so much better but they simply haven’t.

- Needs an equation feature for IOS.

Google Docs is an excellent text editing application. I use it to type various different documents. Creating worksheets, typing papers, and writing the occasional letter are incredibly easy to accomplish. The automatic save feature is wonderful, and I never have to worry about losing a document because of it being automatically uploaded to Google Drive. However, I believe Google Docs needs an equation feature for IOS. I am a Math teacher and currently working towards a Master’s in Mathematics. Recently, I purchased the 2018 iPad Pro to hopefully integrate more technology into the classroom, but I was appalled when I found out that Google docs doesn’t have an equation feature for their mobile app. This makes editing worksheets and working on research papers for analysis classes much more difficult. If Google Docs would add the equation feature, then it would be the perfect text editing app.

- Unable to switch IME when using physical keyboard

My device is iPad Pro 10.2” with iOS 12. On large screens MS Word requires 365 subscription so I turned to Google Docs, which feels perfect on PC. But I was unable to switch between Chinese Shuangpin and English by pressing Ctrl-Space or Caps on my BT keyboard K480. It works when on-screen keyboard is shown, but for productivity I have to connect to external keyboard. I know Google maintains outstanding engineering practice so there must be a quick and clean fix, only that not enough users tell them about the problem. What’s more, formatting is not as convenient as that in Pages, which has a formatting bar on the bottom of edit interface. Also, the fonts support is so very limited. For a document app that has been free from the beginning, Google Docs does great work, but now that the Apple suite’s become free too, Google needs to keep up.

- Syncing

Most of the apps or products that Google has created have been pretty lame, poorly executed or timed and they completely lack the ability to work with the people that use them - some call it customer service - making them just a big lumbering beast riding the wave of success that a search monopoly brought them. The exceptions are Gmail and in my opinion the GSuite of apps. No other company has even come close to having collaborative functionality the way Google has done it. Revisioning, recovery, instantaneous changes and lo and behold I can see when someone is working on a doc at the same time as me. So 5 stars for Google Docs. Guess having all those priceless Stanford degrees sitting around will occasionally produce something awesome.

- Who Need Microsoft Word Now That We Have Google Docs

Microsoft has become an app vending machine that charges a subscription to use it’s products in editing format. I like Microsoft Word but not enough to pay for a monthly subscription to it’s IOS application. So, I decided to try out Google Docs app and boy was I pleasantly surprised. This application has most of the functionality of Microsoft’s Word and it is a top performing word processing application. I am glad I switch from Word and happy with the features and functionality available with Google Docs. And the good news is you can save documents in all types of formats, including Microsoft Word. I highly recommend Google Docs for those looking for a competent word processing app that is free and functional.

- Great App, Has Some Issues

First, I’ll talk about the things well done about this app. Docs is simple in design, but easy to use and access. I know I’m not alone in saying this is one of the best parts of this app, as I oftentimes find it very difficult to use technology. I don’t have a computer simply because it’s so difficult to download and access files and writing apps. But Docs is so simple, at least for iPhones and iPads — all I have to do is download the app, open it with a tap of my finger, and press the red plus on the bottom right to create a new document. And voila — I’m prepared to write the next major, bestselling novel. Now on to the issues. I have around 100 short writing pieces on another account — it used to be my main one. That “ex account” belongs to a G—suite that will soon be shutting down. The problem is, there’s no easy way to transfer files between accounts with iPads and iPhones. You have to create files, share them with a new account, duplicate them, or just copy-and-paste the contents. But with hundreds of documents, that’s an extreme issue. If Google improves methods to transfer files on mobile, I will eagerly change my rating to a 5 star. I love this app and have used it for years, but there’s some issues I’m worried about. Thank you for your time.

- Easy to access important docs on phone

One of my favorite things about google docs is the fact that it automatically saves your edits so you don’t have to remember to go back and do it all the time. It’s really nice and convenient to be able to attach my docs easily to emails when I need to. The only downside is that when I use it on my phone, the formatting gets a little wonky sometimes and when I touch a word or phrase to change it and start deleting letters, the formatting usually moves it off my screen so I have to stop and zoom out and try to find it again so I can see what I’m doing. The best way to use the app that I’ve found is to try to do most of your editing on a pc or laptop and just use the finished product when you’re on your phone. Not bad over all tho.

- I Overall Enjoy It

I’ve been using Docs for almost 3 years and I’d definitely recommend it. I’ve used it for notes, stories, movie scripts, backup picture saves, and my resume. However, the thing that prevents it from getting a perfect 5/5 is the fact that it freezes sometimes when I stop typing, or when I use the side icon to move quickly through documents. I don’t know what it is, but it’ll just freeze and I end up having to exit the Doc and reentering it. This is minor though, and it usually only goes as far as that, and it still saves what I wrote before the freeze. I’d still like this to be fixed though so I don’t have to constantly do this; it does get annoying and even infuriating when I have to do it dozens of times over a few hours.

- Good but…

This app is very useful for school and other things like planning it is also good because if someone wanted to make a rough draft then do it on docs it would correct the spelling mistakes and the grammar mistakes so I would 100% recommend except if you don’t have a google account I think if anyone has a account for anything they should be able to use google docs because my cousin and I wanted to make a script but we also wanted to use a app that we can both edit an I asked her “ do you use google docs in school “ and she said no she uses Microsoft word so I went into word and we figured it that we cant share or edit at the same time on word!!! Please let anyone who has a account use Google Docs.

- Love it, But Still Glitchy...

Google docs is awesome. I am a kid, and l love Google Docs for its different choices of font, color, size, etc... I also like it’s Speech-to-text, also known as the microphone on the keyboard that pops up when you type. But, very often now, it with be glitchy. For Instance, when I Opened up the app last week, it exited me out of the document I was writing and even the app, and made itself load again just like when I first got it. Google docs is good for writing in different font, color, size, etc.…but It can also be very glitchy, So, when you get the app, I recommend to check the software on your iPad and make sure not to push any unnecessary buttons, because it will often trigger more glitches. Stay Safe! 🤩 From Sierra Hashmi, 10, Ocean Charter School, L.A.

- Less Hassle = More Work Done

As a student in middle school, I need essays done in at least 3 days to keep up with my agenda at school and home. Google Docs has saved me a lot of time and hassle. I can send my work teachers within seconds, edit other peoples work and have them edit mine at the SAME TIME, I don’t need to constantly save my work. When I used to use Word I was constantly worrying about my computer dying or crashing and my day or even week long work getting erased. With Google Docs I don’t need to worry about that because it saves my work as I type. When I delete some of my work and need it back I can easily go back and get it back. In one quick sentence, Google Docs is truly a life saver.

- Less effective than browser

My biggest issue with this app is how it closes out of the opened document when you switch apps. As a paid beta reader and content editor, working with documents sometimes several hundred pages long, it is incredibly frustrating to have to re-open the document, wait the rather long time for it to load (even when it’s made available offline), then hope I remember where I was. There are times when I genuinely need to use another app in tandem with Docs, such as researching something an author is describing, etc. I have tried troubleshooting on my own with no luck so far. I suppose this could be a security feature or something of the sort, but it’s really an inconvenience that costs me valuable time. I’ll stick with the browser version that at least won’t exit out of the document because I had to walk away for a bit.

- Great for free time, but...

I am going into 8th grade. So let’s be real, I use google docs a lot for essays on my school computer and such. But I also use it for writing short stories in my free time. When I want to look through my story and just see if there are plot holes or things that don’t make sense, two things happen that really annoy me. 1: the keyboard opens up while I’m scrolling. I just don’t like that it does that randomly to me when I’m nowhere near the button to pull it up. And 2: it starts lagging for me when there’s a part that I just finished on my laptop or something. It also lags a lot for me when I type maybe 100 words or so. But otherwise the app is perfect for when I think of a story idea while riding the bus home or when I can’t get to my personal laptop. Thanks!

- Great, but autocorrection is incorrect.

I only have one problem with google docs. Otherwise it works just fine. This goes back a bit. So about a year ago, I once misspelled the word “form” with “from”, so I just made it always autocorrect the word to the correct one. The same later happened vice versa. I misspelled the word “from” with “form”. Now whenever I type the word “form” it always changes it to “from”, even when it’s in the wrong context and a red zig zag line appears beneath the word THAT HAS JUST BEEN AUTOCORRECTED. Google docs still autocorrects words to the word even if it says it’s incorrect later. This happens with many other words. Now when I type the word “my” it always changes to “may” which is very annoying. Please make it check the context before it autocorrects! Thank you!

- Good, but needs improvements!

Almost every day I use Google Docs, because at my school, that is what they tell us to use all the time, but this app needs as many features as the Google docs on the desktop. I wish they would add the ability to add shapes, and Google Drawings, and the ability to customize the way your tool bar looks! I would also rate this 5 stars if they fixed the lagging problem! Whenever I have to put a graph or table in, and I try to make the table or graph bigger, it just lags, and freezes, and then I have to close the app and reopen it. It is really annoying when it is late at night and you want to get your assignment done, but the software is not letting you because it keeps lagging (that’s just me talking for myself there :)). Please fix that problem, and add a lot of new features!

- I love this app

It's great for writing anywhere! For professional writers who want to be able to update their document anywhere at anytime when inspiration strikes this is really good. Or if you get stuck waiting somewhere you can pull up your phone and start working on an assignment. The only things I wish they would improve is the touchy backspace feature (if you hold it down for a few seconds suddenly half a page is gone), and the fact that the chat feature is not available when working on a doc with someone else when using this app. But those are just kind of minor things. Overall very pleased. Have been using this for years and I continue to use it.

- Best Writing App

This is far by the best writing app I have ever seen on an iPad. I’m an aspiring author, and my very first story’s have been written, edited, revised and published on this app. I still do the same to this day. I do recommend using this on a laptop or computer opposed to an iPad. It’s still the same app, I personally find it easier to click rather then tap. But others may disagree, it really depends on you. I definitely will have this app until I stop writing, which won’t be for a while. I’m excited to see new improvements and fixes whilst we use our imaginations to create stories that look like they were published by professional authors. I love this app, you should definitely put it into consideration.

- Wonderful! However...

This app is amazing. It’s the epitome of amazingness. However, there is a bug I spotted. Whenever I type something, and then exit the typing by checking the check mark, I’m unable to scroll down or up unless I tap the arrow to make it for me, or exit and then reenter the document. It’s extremely annoying, but other than that, I love this app. I hope you fix the bug in the future. Edit: A new bug I found is that when I’m scrolling up and down the outline on the side, and the part I’m currently on overlaps another part of the outline. For instance, I have “Vampire” above “harpy”, and “harpy” is above “angel”. When I scroll down to “vampire”, “vampire” will show twice and one will overlap “angel”.

- Effective, but...

Recently I downloaded it and this app is very helpful, effective, and I love the automatic save feature so much. However, There are two things bothering me so much, which are it crashed oftentimes (force closed) and became laggy whenever the pages are getting longer. I am an author and on the middle of my writing project. It is quite bothersome for me since I am typing quite fast, while the lagging hinders me to finish my writings faster. I must spent longer time to wait the whole words done typing. Additionally, the force closes are not cool. I am using iPad Pro 1st generation right now with the updated iOS and application. If you can fix these problems, I will be more than happy. Hope Google Team see this review and thank you for your attention. Cheers!

- Absolutely Love Google Docs

I’m in school and having google docs as a resource is the best thing our generation gets to experience. It’s a fantastic learning device that makes writing and correcting grammar very easy. I also love how it’s connected to your computer so you can use both your phone and your computer, or whatever device you choose to experience the gift of google docs with. Google docs also connects to all of the other google apps so you can submit things to google classroom, and even keep slides on this. Google docs has been so great to have grown up with, and I can’t imagine having to type an essay without using google docs, 5 stars, would recommend.

- Good app... could be better.

As others have said here, this app is a good one, and an improvement over other similar ones that I have tried. However, the keyboard lag that mysteriously begins and stops without apparent cause, some of the formatting options. or rather the lack of those, some very strange behavior when removing or inserting words or characters in a sentence, all contribute to the removal of a star from this review. I imagine these are not insurmountable issues for a developer, but unless Google suddenly decides to care, I suspect this is the best we'll get for quite a while... or forever. I will continue to use it and appreciate it, but I will continue to hope for improvements too.

- Good for school

By the title you probably know what I am going to say. BUT I DON’T CARE. I am going to tell you anyway. I am a student that likes to finish work. So when I need to keep writing I can do it on google docs. I would recommend this app if you like writing and doing things on time. But if you don’t care I would still recommend it. The only thing is that takes a minute or two to load. But I don’t care to much I just have to get out of the page and get back on and it works ok. If you’re not in school this would still work if you need to write I guess. To be honest I don’t care how you use this app. Also one thing I like is I can share my writing with my friends and my teacher.

- Very frustrating to use on an ipad

I’m trying to edit documents on the ipad pro with the apple smart keyboard, so I expect to be able to edit a document at least as well as a desktop in-browser experience. Instead, every time I try to move the cursor somewhere and pull up an editing/reviewing menu, I get nothing useful and my selection disappears. You need more menu buttons up top and/or better context-menu access, the latter of which should come up every time I select something with shift+arrows. Additionally, editing edit mode to even bring up a cursor is frustratingly difficult because it seems to revert to a useless view mode. Lastly, typing/editing/commenting are all slowed with erratic flushing of the typing buffer because it’s busy searching my gmail contacts for possible suggestions of friends to talk about in a work document. Beyond being just creepy, this is quite limiting to the function of the app.

- 100,000,000,000,000,000 STARS

This app is speechless it it it it ITS BOO-TU-FUL and you can work with your friends or fam OR boss OR ANYONE! It’s awesome I have this app on my phone and on my computer at school and both with the same email so I usually work on my school work with this app and it comes in RLLY handy! This app is amazing and it’s great for little ones get them ready for school with this before they go to school every week through a topic at them and have them write it so the kid can do GREAT in writting. OR just have some fun with it what ever you want to do with it. It’ll be great and work amazing! But one bad thing glitches sometimes but other wise awesome and I really do think you aka the reader should get it! :0 #AMAZING

- Could Be Better

So far my experience with Google Docs is great, but they could use some refining. The website is nearly perfect, but the app has its flaws and a few downsides. It’s cluttered and hard to navigate, there are no chat options with other viewers, clicking on other viewer icons don’t immediately drag you down to see where they are at as well. Sometimes the thumbnail isn’t exactly accurate and they have this strange viewer mode and editing mode switch which I feel could have been done better. It’s hard to see comments in editing mode and once you do click on them it gets you out of editing which can be a little frustrating. With a little more time, effort, and updates I’m sure these problems can be fixed, but for now I prefer and recommend the website.

- Adequate

Less than intuitive controls for finding and organizing documents. Editing not robust compared to Word, lacking many important features. No real “track changes” option and collaborators can easily make changes that you would not be aware of without doing some Investigating, which often leads to embarrassing and time consuming errors. Far better to use Word and share docs through Dropbox. If you track changes everyone’s revisions show up color coded and if you want temporarily to see the document with all changes accepted, you can and then still easily go back and display all of the edits until you are ready to accept them. Google docs doesn’t come close nor does it provide a full suite of tools that a decent word processing program should have. My stomach clenches every time I’m asked to look at a document on google docs.

- Good, not great

I love using Docs for everything from letters to meeting notes to flyers. It is simple to use and the templates are helpful. For basic work it does the job. However, I do always have an issue with one thing. I have multiple email addresses for the different organizations that I am involved in and create documents for...multiple times I have created a document under the wrong email and then can not open it or have it in “my drive” under the current one UNLESS I copy and paste it into a new document with the current email. It would be great if, as the owner of said multiple emails, I could drag and drop files into the correct Drive so that I don’t always have to sign out/sign in so many times when I make a simple mistake.

- As Cheesy as this sounds Google Docs can be a life saver

Me and my friend were typing a story at school and only had a couple of classes together we could type and talk to each other about it. When my Math teacher who was an ELA teacher showed me and my friend that you could share docs we where able to rapidly make progress in our free periods even if we where in different classes. All in all it’s a real good app and I recommend it to other people especially students, teachers, writing teams, and solo writers. Although I wish that there was more customization and that when you change from [for example] heading to normal text that font didn’t change.

- I found my soulmate

This app is the best thing that I have ever had on my phone including all of my games my text messages and my FaceTime/calling. I am so completely in love with this app I write and do projects and all sorts of stuff on the all the time!It’s not even funny anymore how much are use this and how much I love. If I had to get married I would get married to whoever created Google Docs because this is forever going to be my soulmate. I’ve completely switched To using Google Docs and I am so happy that I finally got it on my phone, on my iPad. And definitely on my computer, so you can see how much I really truly is this it is saved my life. Get Google docs. You will not regret it.

- Its...goodishh.

This app is very handy I like the fact that I can work on my documents on any device, almost anywhere I go. But, there’s a few quirks about it that I are frustrating. Sometimes there are glitches where it won’t load a page. If I’m off wifi, pages that aren’t set to view offline won’t open, because I don’t always have wifi. Also, the table of contents is always a disaster. It goes by last opened page. Just put it order by name. I wish there were an option to program certain frequently used words and phrases with one click . Like a name on a script. Thank you for making this awesome, free tool. It just needs a few adjustments.

- One of the best

I have been using Google Docs to write and type things since I was in Kindergarten. I have been relying on it for many different things such as school, and writing books. Especially in quarantine, this app is a must have for schoolwork. 10/10, a great app. I definitely recommend this for people who do not like to hold pencils for so long, and for excellent writers, as the quality is amazing, and you even get a little image browser as well. Usually it is hard to find things that are just images, and not shopping websites and other miscellaneous sites. This should be downloaded as soon as possible if you are looking to start writing things.

- Google Docs improved my life satisfaction

Everything is great. I can do all these sophisticated edits on the go b/c of all the advanced features incorporated like the capacity to add links and hyperlinks; comments, navigating through my document based on sections, etc. I would only ask to bring back or upgrade the feature associated with encryption. I used to be able to download encrypted documents into the Drive but now I receive an error MSG. Because security is essential for some confidential docs this must be resolved so I am not be limited in this way. I have a workaround where I can decrypt my encrypted docs from another email provider, then copy and paste content onto an existing google doc that I rename but would prefer a more straightforward solution.

- Laggy

I’m a kid and I do uses for school because for some strange reason my school avoids word like the plague. It’s been really good up until now but when I’m doing my summer work it gets really laggy to up to the point where I actually can sit back and watch the words type. And if I take a lot of words it can take up to three minutes. It’s been so bad that I really don’t write as much as I used to I looked into my Wi-Fi signal but it wasn’t that because wherever I am it’s still laggy cuz no matter where I am it’s still lagging I think it’s the app. And deleting too much or making a lot of typos and then having to go back and I’m on an iPad so there’s not a spellcheck option.

- This app is incredible

There are honestly very few problems I have with it, but most of them are justified just by saying that it is the mobile version and isn’t as complex. I love using this app for everything from homework to writing books to journaling to just random lists. Absolutely incredible app, I don’t think I could live without it. It’s much easier to use and much more user-friendly than the Microsoft counterpart, and I can’t think of a single reason not to download it. Even if you don’t have as much of a use for it as I do, it’ll still come in handy for plenty of small things. 10/10, invaluable app to have no matter who you are.

- Needs all the settings and deletion

Docs is great for collaborative writing and keeping track of ideas and notes in an organized manner. However, when all I have is my phone to edit and ad to my existing docs, my options are limited font and size wise. I also share a lot of the docs I make with friends to help edit and consolidate ideas for story writing, but when I try to delete old docs that the other person has saved a copy of onto their personal doc page, I’m still left with the ghost of my old doc. All it does is sit there and tell me I can bring back the doc, when what I want is for it to be gone for good and clean up my menu.

- Good Basic Word Processing App

As a teacher, I love that I can start something at school and then finish it at home on a different device. It saves me from adding my laptop to an already full bag. My only gripe is that formatting with tables is not as easily done as on other formatting software (such as Word). Many times I like to develop tables to use and turn the text direction sideways to label certain areas or block off parts of a table. I have not been able to do this as easily with this app. It’s not huge, but as I’m trying to convert most of my usual documents to the Docs format for ease of access, this is one thing I still rely on Word to do. Otherwise, a great word processing app, and I enjoy being able to access it anywhere.

- Homework....

I really don’t know why adults would use this if they are not in school. But my teachers are MAKING ME REEEEEEEEEEEEEE I’m in 6th grade and it’s so annoying my ELA teacher keeps assigning me projects for project based learning (PBL) And also in personal learning time. (PLT) so, I use this every day and I did not feel like getting on my PC to edit my presentation so I got on my iPad then it said I could not edit it without the app which I thought was really stupid so I got the app have not used it yet but I think I will know it will be good and if it’s not I will be MAD because then I will have to get on my PC every time I want to edit my presentation so yea I will give this a good rating Thanks for reading bye!
