Somps - Leery of The G word
Cristyjewelry - Unable to Edit Shared Sheets
I try to go as mobile as possible, because opening up a computer all the time sometimes is just too much of a hassle or takes way too much time for something that should be done so quickly, such as signing up for a meeting time. Whenever I try to edit a spreadsheet for something like signing up, there’s always an annoying pop-up that says I need to download the app in order to edit at all. And even when I already have it downloaded, I still have to press the only “accept” button on that pop-up, which says “get the app”. It takes me back to the app store, where I then have to press “open”, and opens up to the Google Sheets app, but the sheets I would be trying to edit wouldn’t automatically come up. Checking the “Shared with Me” tab doesn’t do anything, trying the process over again doesn’t do anything, and nor does completely closing the App Store or Google Sheets app then starting the process over again do anything. This practically makes the Sheets app useless for me, because this is pretty much the only reason I need it. When using Sheets, I’m usually just trying to open someone else’s Sheets page, which they linked somewhere, and edit it rather than creating one myself.
jspowers21 - It works ok
For a mobile app it works ok. A lot more functional on my computer and iPad than my iPhone X. As powerful as my cell phone is, I expect a bit more. Make all the functions available. I use this primarily for my monthly budget and it is difficult to change the functions of a box when all you can do it add numbers and not enter more complex calculations for each box. That is my only complaint besides the usual crashing and instability issues. It could flow a little easier and have the calculations as a ready part of setting up the spreadsheet instead of reinventing the wheel so to speak. Make it intuitive so people with out an mba can manage their budget by setting this up for themselves. I have done this for many people and my hope is that they follow through with it, but if I’m having a difficult time, I imagine others that just use my template, probably just give up if they can’t make easy changes with the mobile version because it never dawns on them to go back to the computer to make them.
PricelessMe - An Amazing App
Love, love, love this app!!! It is amazing and dependable. I like that its offline and I can use it whereever I am, even when traveling. I use it for our family budget and to pay of large bills and credit cards. It allow me to adjust the payment amounts when I want to pay a bill off early. I list my dates by each payment and I can see exactly when I'll have a bill paid off. It's been a real asset to our family. I don't have to worry about my data being locked up until I buy or update the subscription like what happened with another app, because its free. It was such an inconvenience. But this app has proven its value time and time again. I also like how I can plug in my formulas to show the interest rate and declining balance of my credit cards. I highly recommend to everyone to use it. My sincerest thanks to the maker of this exceptional app!!!
Itmademerateit105 - No-cost, user-friendly, multi-purpose tool.
Free, easy to use, and able to share with others to edit/view. I use it to organize, plan/schedule, and collect information. I cannot speak to its ability to work with quantitative data (ie. numbers, graphs, stats, etc), which I mention only b/c I know some will seek this app to do just that. I used Excel in college when working with large data sets; I didn’t know about Sheets back then. If you are looking for a FREE & easy to use tool to help you get organized and structured in your day to day activities, whether that’s managing your home, your business, your ministry, or your social media platform, etc., you’ll enjoy & appreciate this app. It’s also great to use as an archive where you can collect resources, contact info, etc.
Singoffpitch - Love the app except lack of mobile details
I love everything about the app except that it lacks the ability to access some of the settings that are available in the online version. I like to set cells to change color or configure running data based on what is entered and I can't adjust those settings in existing spreadsheets or add parameters to new sheets from the mobile app. Otherwise, I can do pretty much everything in the app I can do on the computer (and many things are easier from the app, which is why I'd really like full features available since I prefer using sheets from the app!!) and I'm a Google Sheets addict and president of the Sheets fan club! I've never had any problems with the app or lost data and it even saves my data automatically when I click out of the app without clicking the checkmark to save! Love Google Sheets!! 😁
Babu Sath - Google sheets rocks!
Google sheets my excel for private use. It is very reliable and works well. Especially for using from multiple devices from multiple locations.
From a functionality perspective one thing puts Google Sheets above excel is its support for Unicode making it work well for non-English data.
Once disappointment to date has been that it is either matching or lagging Microsoft Excel mostly. I say this without claiming to be an expert who has used its entire functionality, so take that with a pinch of salt.
I would like to see Google team taking us in to a new world of functionality and capability - for example, seamless working between documents, databases, multimedia, and presentations.
I would be glad to talk to Google Office team, if interested.
meu nickname - Just needs to improve the interface dynamics.
The features are great for my usage (stock portfolio track), it feels easier and more intuitive than excel. But the usage experience for me is still not there yet. The touch interface/dynamics still feels like a low quality app. It would only pan either horizontally or vertically and not both at the same time. When one cell is selected I’m not able to change to other sheet pages (excel and numbers managed to do it without any problem). It feels underdeveloped when compared to apple numbers usability. When I’m checking my sheets on the iPhone the actual area is so small compared to the other two apps also. It has a a great potential, in my opinion it just needs some fine tuning for touch versions. Desktop browser version works perfectly.
BryanE63 - Love this App!!
Love this App!!
Very convenient and I can access it on any device!! I have had past experiences where I had other apps for a while and without any warning at all from the Developer, the app was no longer available or was not compatible with the newest software so this left me High and Dry!! Very frustrating when you have to re-do all the information over again and find the info from many different places!! So the only advice I can give to the Developer of the Apps is to please let the people know when your no longer going to have the App available for us to retrieve our information so we can at least store it somewhere else so it’s not completely lost and we have to start everything over.
Archer of Nor - Freaking Love It
I’m a bar manager and I use Google Sheets almost daily. I use it to do all of my liquor and beer orders (color coded, and some really nifty conditional formatting too). It makes all of my reps very happy with how organized it is! I also use it to do inventory on 3 bars and a huge storage area, profit margin sheets, employee phone lists etc... it’s incredibly useful to be able to pull up any information I need, immediately, on my phone.
I used to do everything on Excel; printing all the pages out, writing all the counts down, going back into Excel to enter all the counts... Sheets let’s me do everything on my phone or iPad and autosums as I go. Not only does Sheets keep me nice and organized, it also makes orders and inventory go SO much faster.
ltshep - Will be perfect with some fixes
Google drive is already my go-to for documents and spreadsheets (I don’t really use slideshows, but if I ever need to, it’s the default for me there too).
I don’t edit my sheets too often on mobile, as it’s simply much easier to use the desktop site, but it’s great for viewing. The desktop site has it’s issues. Merged cells are impossible to move accurately in any direction but upward, zooming makes lines appear between and within cells that only disappear once reloaded, or zoomed back to 100%, but reappear upon scrolling. But, those aren’t present on the app.
The only complaint I have for the app is the ease of use, but a mouse and keyboard will always be easier to use than just a touch-screen.
USABlake - The future is here.
This and sheets on the computer browser will frustrate some people a bit if they are used to Excel. But I find sheets and drive to be light years ahead of whatever Microsoft is cooking up to compete. I can’t live without mobile access to my spreadsheets anymore. And holy crap, collaboration will never be the same. Microsoft has nothing on google. I cringe when people share an xls spreadsheet back and forth. Lol. Especially when it’s shared through google drive. Seriously saw that. Wow. Nice try, but you missed the fact that there is a better way. And so, so much easier. And you can actually work together instead of checking to see if the other person has it opened and not saved.
GoodOldMonkey - Very good - but Google could make it super
This app has amazing capabilities, and a few silly defects.
+ You can share full-featured spreadsheets in real time. On my iPhone I can correct data right next to the cell my niece is editing on a Windows desktop hundreds of miles away.
+ Really powerful: even on the mobile version you can create SQL-like queries of spreadsheet or external data, and useful charts.
+ Super easy data input from Google forms for repetitive stuff.
- Crashes pretty often.
- Some major browser-version features — edit-triggered routines, for example, and modifying protection — aren’t available on the mobile version.
- Doesn't tell you when it's still busy downloading or calculating. A big spreadsheet can take several minutes to load and calculate, and you may meanwhile jump to some wrong decisions.
- Doesn't keep track of where you were when you reopen a workbook. If you were looking at row 3323 on Sheet Four, navigating back is a non-trivial pain in the tail.
twoarmscollin - Poor functionality
I can use command-a to select all of the text in a cell, but I cannot use command-i to make text italic. I cannot select and edit text within a cell, only in the bar on the bottom, thus making it incredibly inefficient. For someone doing qualitative research without access to Nvivo, spreadsheets are an important tool. While sheets on laptops and desktops is a viable rival for excel, and google’s ability for teams to simultaneously edit sheets is unchallenged, the mobile app makes it nearly impossible for me to get my work accomplished using my tablet with keyboard attachment. Why lug around my laptop when I can bring my brand new tablet that handles everything else so well? Google - get the functionality of this app on par with the sheets browser experience. Do not recommend using this app for mobile. Stick to the browser, or use a different program entirely.
Hunt.tr04 - Almost useless, and web versionnot accessible with an ipad
I use google sheets for experiments as i am a freshman, i bring my iPad to school almost always, its my computer substitute, when its lab day and we to graph the information, i dread as the app is useless, i cannot edit a graph to add a trend line, and googles “helpful”advice is to use the web version, funny enough you cannot access the web version without a work around in ios that takes 3 minutes, thats safari, not chrome, it is impossible on chrome, after opening the web version, it tries to make you use the app, and constantly giving you a pop off that its not supported, and not able to format. it becomes slow and laggy as well. My advice to google is to not advertise an app that doesn't have some of the simplest features such as adding an equation or a trend line to a graph. And don't have a help center filled with incorrect information
snorkfire - This is truly pathetic
Is it really just me that sees a dog slow app? I copied this review’s title from my departing comment within my effort to create a stock tracking spreadsheet. In what turned out to be my second effort at exploring using Sheets I found enormous difficulty overcoming the very long hang times and delays, so left that comment to myself to remind me in case I ever try it again.
Add to that the fact that the stock query is missing a dividend/yield function on stocks, and we have arrived at the bizarre. That’s quite a miss. And add to that the inability to query a closing price on a date without forcing an 5 cell array construct and we have a mess. Apple does this in one cell with one date reference, folks.
Well, I hate the long hanging “Calculating” times in the Numbers app, but Sheets is little better there for letting me edit while it thinks, and quite a bit more limited in overall dogginess and limitations.
EDAAmanda - Missing a couple of features
Over all, it’s a really good app. It’s very convenient to have access to my spreadsheets on my phone, but I really wish the app had the same functionality with setting up equations as the desktop version does. It’s really annoying to have to enter my equation into each individual field and mark that I’m done before being able to move onto the next one. I’d like to be able to enter one, then click the corner and drag it into any additional fields I need.
I am also displeased they took away requiring a passcode to enter the app. I have things in there I don’t want my daughter to see and she uses my phone sometimes. If it’s passcode protected, then I don’t have to worry.
Tewithersaiyan - Good, with exceptions.
This app suffers from the same problems afflicting other google apps on the mobile/tablet platform: not all of the original functions are available. I am a student who uses a 2020 iPad Pro, and the other day I ran into a problem on sheets when I discovered that I was unable to do very basic things such as create a function for data I’d input, or switch the values on the x and y axis of a graph. Overall, it’s a very polished and functional app, but it is brought down by the fact that in the very least there is no iPad version of the app with all the functions the PC version has. Would be 5 stars if not for this problem. Other apps, like Google Docs, have a similar problem.
Lobo325 - Compatible with ease.
Needed an excel spreadsheet app and this is by far the better option at the moment. Unlike the other excel apps that you need to fork over money and yet have compatibility issues between the printer or even while using it, this one is quick and easy between devices. I use this for my clients for setting up their weekly workout schedule and emailing it without any hassle like crashing. Recently started using it for making “range-table” cards for F-Class long distance shooting at the range. Overall, I’m very pleased with the functionality. The only downside is that I wish I gotten this App sooner and had saved the money on the other mediocre version.
bac2thaBasix - I really want to give it 5 stars
As the title shows, I really do want to give this app 5 stars but there is one small thing I wish this app would do that it does but MS excel app does. It’s leaving the last excel spreadsheet open that you had when ever you change apps. Like if I pull open a template and then go to another app on my phone I have to go back to the home page in sheets, then click the sheets file I was just in, then wait for the file to open. In MS word I literally can input data, change apps then go back to excel and I am brought automatically back to the last cell that I had just entered data. If google sheets does that, I’ll be more than happy to give them 5 stars.
Ericanii - Worst Google app
Nearly impossible to use. I use fairly large sheets to keep track of my projects. I was trying to update one today on my iPad and I had to re-enter the values on nearly every changed cell TWICE because either it would glitch or not type as I was typing. I also use a sheet that updates based on a sheet of a friend of mine's and in the sheet app it just DOESN'T work at all. I have to look at it in the browser. But you can't edit sheets in the browser on chrome for some reason??????? Drive site crashed like 5 times trying to just open a sheet on chrome so I can edit it. Sheet would not update with new values from my friends sheet in the app.
I am fully engrained in the Google ecosystem for all my easy documentation storage but sheets on iPad is by far the WORST Google app I have ever used to the point I'm here complaining. It just doesn't work.
BudgetWise101 - Always Room For Improvement, but...
I’ve been using Google Sheets for years. I’m not an absolute expert but I’ve been able to create a comprehensive Google Sheets financial workbook to chart my family and business finances as well as a product inventory workbook.
My greatest of challenges has to do with knowing how to use Google Sheets effectively on different devices. I work with them on my messed up Pixel XL phone (that keeps rebooting daily), iPhones, iPads (large and small), and my Windows desktop.
Unfortunately I can’t seem to find tutorials to assist me in accomplishing functions for my product inventory workbook that I see others achieving. If you know of resources that would help certainly let me know.
Bluswept - Amazing FREE program!
If college taught me anything, it’s that Google’s FREE alternatives to Microsoft Office programs are AMAZING. It’s not that there’s more features, it’s simply the simplicity. I don’t need to be an advanced programmer in order to figure out how to do things within Sheets. Even if I don’t know, a quick google search results in a very simple step by step guide by google that cuts right to the chase. It’s easy to collaborate, too. Simply add the person/people’s email address(es) and they’ll be sent a link that will let them access the sheet, and you can give them specific permissions, or you can just create a shareable link.
jmy81 - Fixed income
I am a 57 year old man and have been disabled since 2008 and am on an income which is less than half of what I was making at the plant where I worked, didn’t get check for 2 years, lost one of my vehicles, went thru savings and still had to beg for food, almost lost my house and 6 acres, worked with loan company and kept it. My wife is also disabled, I cannot spend money I don’t have , I’m an ole country boy in Tennessee and I had pride up until all money was gone and eating canned corn only for supper and had to swallow my pride and beg for food, so don’t lecture me about a budget, you’re eating lobsters, steaks and shrimp, drinking wine and I’m eating wild rabbits, squirrels and white tail deer.
Bigbadserrao - Good for when you’re in a pinch
Of all the concepts to survive the desktop to mobile shift in our computing lives, none of them make less sense to me than trying to create spreadsheets on a touch screen. It’s just a task that benefits from the percussion of a mouse and the wide screens of desktop machines so much.
Yet, google sheets tries to get this right and mostly succeeds. You’re still going to make lots of errors and be frustrated by the nested menus of settings but the tight integration with google drive, impressive feature set and collaborative capabilities makes this a great solution for minor spreadsheet edits and reference.
ZharloMang - It doesn’t work when it should
I have been sent a google Sheet to edit with peers. The site constantly has the pop-up stating (get google sheets to make edits) or such.
I have the app. And it it’s both impossible to open directly from the sheet, or opening it an internet browser doesn’t allow me to open it in sheets. Essentially I can access it without first downloading into my phone, then re-opening. It also does not show up in my recent history.
I would say this is exactly what the app needs to do for a mobile app, is cross opening or at least for the option to open in Sheets is available. It isn’t. At the very least it should be able to know I have the app instead of advertising to me to download, and open up the app itself, instead of the App Store. So poor in the final product’s function.
dglana - Does everything I need
This app is great! It allows me to read and edit anything that I have created in Google sheets online. It doesn't have the functionality that the online program on the phone but it still works well to allow me to do what I need to do.
When computers are not available this app is a lifesaver. I have one thing to note. When printing a spreadsheet sometimes it will try to make it fit on one page and I can't alter that direction, making the data minuscule.
Biggest issue is when I want to search for data. The search function does not do all I would like it to do. Hope that issue is fixed soon.
Scott Kern - Excellent spreadsheet app for when one is on the go!
Full spreadsheet functionality from one’s smartphone, with access to all spreadsheet files (“Google Sheets”) which one has saved on Google Drive. Contrary to another review, which stated that only numbers could be edited and complex formulas could not be altered, this app allows any desired change to be made to each cell, just the same as from a desktop or laptop computer’s Google Sheets web interface. Possibly the other reviewer did not notice that toggling between numbers and letters is possible when editing each cell!
GabbyDatGamer (YouTube) - Works Very Well! (Especially for business)
This works great for my business! It helps to organize what has and what hasn’t happened. It also helps to keep track of money sums, payments, bills, and more! Very helpful and recommended for businesses. Since on iOS, it has made life so much easier than just on PC’s. Though, it would be better if it didn’t run on any sort of internet connection. When away on business, and you have no connection, it can make it hard for me to organize it. In the end, it can make a great organizer, and a great tool. Thanks!,
micste6643 - Wish I could edit from links people send me
I commonly will be sent a link to google sheets from someone and when I select it, it’s goes to a read-only view in a browser saying that I should open it in the app to edit. When I follow the given links to download/open the app, it doesn’t take me to the sheet that I originally linked from. In addition, there is no easy way to find a link to an editable sheet. Seems to defeat the purpose of having google sheet links and my ability to collaborate with others. When you finally can get into the app and edit a sheet, it’s a good product. Just awful for any sort of mobile use without being able to share easily.
TechnoCritic - Love that I can access my spreadsheets on any device, but editing is buggy on iPhone
It’s awesome to be able to access my spreadsheets anywhere, anytime. I’ve completely converted all of my personal spreadsheets to Google Sheets. My only complaint is, editing spreadsheets on the phone is cumbersome, especially when editing a cell that contains a function. After placing my cursor at the point where I want to type, the contents of the edit field are moved so that the cursor is at the far left edge of the field. As I type, the cursor stays in this location, meaning that I can’t see what I’m typing as I type it. This seems to be a bug in the form field control. Wish this could be fixed.
Gavins_bat_girl - Where’s the AutoSum?
One thing I loved about Excel is that the Auto Sum function worked. The reason why that was nice is for what I do, there may or may not be a value in a certain cell and it would add up each existing value in a column. Even if the line item was deleted, it wouldn’t return an #error message. The reason I prefer google sheets, however, is that it’s free; whereas, in Excel, I had to pay for a subscription to edit the document. That and the app told me I didn’t have a subscription, but when I tried resubscribing, it told me I already had one. 🤪 So... my business is on hold until I can figure out which spreadsheet to use.
Wwndyyyy - Great for wedding guest lists, other collaborations
This is so much safer, easier and better than sending a spreadsheet around to many people and trying to keep up with the current, correct version. It alerts you when others make changes and you can see every single change (and who made it)back to the beginning of the document. You literally cannot f this thing up. Do I wish sometimes it had full excel functionality? Of course - but that's like saying I wish horses could fly - it would be optimal but it's not part of the design :)
MikeerdiGames9972 - Good app
By far more of a google fan than apple, (even though I have an iPad) and really enjoy having my google spreadsheets and other stuff on my iPad. When you use the mobile version of google’s apps, you still get all of the main features of the desktop version. Google does good at incorporating all the desktop features into the mobile app, while it is still extremely easy to use. Sometimes I even prefer the mobile app instead, because of its easy-to-use interface, and most of the desktop features are still there.
Ekgpress - GREAT App that Synchs to All my Devices!
I love this App. It allows me to make additions to any device of mine that I might be using (computer; iphone; ipad). I primarily use Sheets for language study — and what is great about it, is that there is never confusion, even when mixing 2 different alphabets (ie, Hebrew has it’s own alphabet that goes from right-to-left, which is opposite to that for English). It takes a little getting used to re learning how to alter settings on an ipad — but once you learn this, it becomes VERY easy to customize any list exactly the way you want it — so I LOVE this app! Thank you!
SD_Gringo - Versatile
I use this for so many things - handy to use between my laptop and iPhone. More than one of us can edit the worksheets at the same time. I use it to track finances, a daily plan/schedule for my move from one state to another, a log of test results and actions I take to maintain my pool that I can reference at the store, a roster and schedule for coordinating volunteer sports activities, vacation plans I can reference on the go, a noble to do list that my wife and I can share, and tracking the family budget. It is not as powerful as MS Excel, but plenty useful for what I need.
jae2104 - The rising giant in the history of document making
Love the way it integrates the work with others. Also very simple to use and share with other people.
Only thing it lacks is that when it prints with iPad it does not print accurately as it appears on the screen. WYSIWYG rendering is still in development in my opinion for printing. However, it is still an excellent alternative to Microsoft products and the gap is coming very close to the giant in the history of document making. Thank you so much for making this available and affordable for everyone~~!
MurrayMM - Cheaper and more secure than network attached storage
Given that most Network Attached Storage boxes are too easily hacked, I cannot justify the cost of replacing my 12 year old NAS at home. The Google drive with Docs and Sheets is far more secure and cost effective for the long term. I would have given Sheets 5 stars except for my continued frustration that it does not come back to where I left off. Having to scroll down hundreds of lines every time is a waste of my time. Other than having to learn the new formatting commands, I am very happy with Sheets. P.S. I was using DecCalc in the 1970s and Lotus 123 in the 1980s. I have written hundreds of spreadsheets.
CaboCarl - Difference between version on Mac
I 100% like both versions, but would like the iPad version to work the same way when changing a cell formula or data. The Mac deletes the entire data when you start to change the data so you don’t have to delete each digit, whereas the iPad version just adds it onto what was there. Also when you access a formula in a cell, if you don’t enter each cell you come to with another enter, it creates strange formulas instead of leaving them as they were. Mac version doesn’t do that and is preferred.
timzter - Crash
Alarmy has been unstable lately. A couple of weeks ago, the alarm did not go off at all. Today, the alarm went off but tapping on the notification to get into the app to perform the mission to turn the alarm off, the app crashed. When I then tapped the app's icon to launch it, it crashed again. About the 3rd attempt to launch it, it did launch, but by now, time has elapsed so that it didn't force me to perform the mission. Consequently today's alarm is treated as though it never happened, evidenced by the missing entry in the History.
The most basic function of the app must not fail, otherwise this app is useless. I have been using this app for over a year now. But lately it has been unstable and performing unreliably.
Ariana Solis - Good for school
I have been using google sheets for my college career. I installed good sheets and docs on my iPad, iPhone and log in online at home through my computer. The eat part is that everything uploads and refreshed in seconds and does it in all devices I am using. I love that I can work on things through my phone when ever I need it and when I get home I continue my work online through my iPad. When I need to make final touches and print I use my laptop. Google sheets and docs are amazing for a college student when working and going to school. I can’t complain. LOVE IT!
Texwad - Great app for my needs
Pros-This app has made my life really easy being able to track several metrics on all of my devices. When I am on the go I can update from my phone or tablet and then once I’m home or at the office, I can continue to update, analyze, then print once ready.
Cons- Wish that it would open to the last cell modified. One spreadsheet that I use has over 15,000 rows and I have to scroll to the bottom to get to the new data and update which takes some time. It would be nice to have it open where I left off.
MinecraftRocks! - Good usage, bad implementation
Don’t get me wrong, I love the app and use it all the time.
However when I get a link to a spreadsheet or have to access it via a browser, it does not recognize the app is downloaded, requests me to go to the App Store to download it despite already having it, and continues the loop, no matter what kind of loophole I try to use, it requires me to “download” an already downloaded app and does not recognize that it has been opened by my account despite having logged in via browser and opening up the link.
That is probably the biggest reason I may have to delete the app because of how frequent and important these links are.
Sir Amelius - Everything you would expect
Definitely like the app. Interface is intuitive. Does everything the average user would want it to do. However, I give it 4 stars because it won’t run script. I’ve created buttons that when clicked, causes a cell to increase in value by x amount or decrease by the same amount; the same buttons, when you open the file in the app, do not function in the same way. Instead it treats the buttons as just images. You can’t access script editor on this app either. Would be cool if you could allow the app to run custom scripts and create/edit script.
Bnv2264 - Overall Good Business Tool
I use this everyday and almost all day. If I didn’t have google sheets I wouldn’t be able to keep things organized in the business I run. I also love that you can see others and share with others. Such a great platform.
On a side note- it does sometimes run slow and freeze with a large amount of people running a shared document. It sometimes makes me reload and refresh and I understand having to but wish it wasn’t so often. Also, at times it can overwrite others’ text.
Like I said overall great program and so grateful!
iPad4 user - Still a "baby version" of the web app
Google, PLEASE start taking iPad seriously. My company does everything in G Suite and your iPad apps lack so much functionality compared to their web versions that they are like having one hand tied to your back. Take a note how Apple or Microsoft does their office apps on iPad and start following.
Examples: Many functions that exist in web version are just missing from app - case: you cannot edit graph set to occupy full tab in Sheets. There is no way to edit multiple documents side by side.
Also, make it possible to open the documents in Safari when you have multiple user accounts. Now only way for preventing app from hijacking url is to by hand add /u/1 in the the right spot.
MichiruMochi - Needs Some Work, A Bit Laggy
I have large shared files that I constantly need to look at and work on alongside my coworkers on the same file at the same time. It seems like the iPad/iPhone version is a bit laggy and choppy? And whenever I try to load one of those large files, it crashes. I’ll keep trying or will try offline, but I hope the changes I make get saved to the same file everyone else is working on! Just leaving some feedback! Oh and would also love to have the ability to find words on the page, not just to replace but i nee to search for them to copy and reference for another sheet! So that’d be cool if we got that!
KernNBurn - Worst app ever!
Google sheets is the worst app ever! My life was easy until I downloaded google sheets. Not only does it mess up the split window on my iPad Pro, it even messed up google drive. Using google sheets is the equivalent of putting another hole in my head! The app it works worst with is google drive! How does that make sense? Google drive is easily navigated until sheets or other apps are also introduced, then navigating them becomes less discernible than interstate spaghetti bowls.
Google sheets is so horrible I’m going to ditch google drive and every other app google offers. All any of them do is get in the way! Google maps is the second worst! Wait, I forgot about Chrome, what a computer overloading pile of dog crap!
The world will be a better place when google is removed from it!
User23848 - Hard to Open New Sheets
If you’ve already been working on a sheet, it will pull it from your drive. If you start a brand new sheet, it’s okay. I often see that it doesn’t send the sheet created in the app back to my drive for access on a computer. My biggest complaint is that I can’t open a sheet that someone else has started and shared a link for. If someone sends a link through a messaging app, it won’t open (or give the option) to open in the sheets app. Instead it prompts me to download the app, which I already have, and when it finally opens the app from the App Store it’s “forgotten” about the shared sheet I was trying to open.
kimtheo - The concept is great
However the ease in using them could be better. I use sheets often during my workouts. So after each set I enter the weight and reps completed. During the next set, my screen will black out and when I click it back on, the unpredictability of whether sheets will open up exactly where I was or if I need to click on the title page and then the page at the bottom of the screen again takes over. Time is spent scrolling and clicking on between the “numbers only” board and the letter board. It’s clunky. I don’t know what the answer is to make it better, I just know that it can be. Thank you!

DerwentDevil - Superbly useful. Technically brilliant. Free.
Revolutionises spreadsheets as dramatically as Google did to web-search.
I had some minor difficulty transferring audio-video from a friend’s Microsoft PowerPoint files to Google Slides. Accordingly, I finally broke down and paid Microsoft’s extortionate price for their product, assuming that Microsoft by now would have incorporated a version of Google’s most useful functionality. I was wrong. I regret that purchase, and encourage everyone to use Sheets. It’s a superior product, and it’s free.
The greatest attributes I’ve found using it are its ability to publish to the web without my needing to have a website, the way It inter-operates with Google Forms, and it’s ability to avoid the existence of multiple differing versions when collaborating. Others might prefer some of its other features. Regardless, it’s available everywhere utility means that this product (and all the other apps in its office suite) needs to become the standard- because we deserve it.
#sprog - Cell definitions
Since the last update the definitions do not stay in place. When I click on a cell the definition looks to be what is required but as soon as data is entered the definition disappears. For example a cell (or field) is set to centre the data as soon as data is entered the data is right justified. This is very frustrating, I hope you can do a fix to get back to where we were before. Thank you.
JDN 847 - Half complete
There are a lot of features that the app simply cannot do when compared to the web version. Stuff like line of best fit, directly editing the legend. The real technical stuff that I needed for some of my work as a student. It’s especially annoying because I use my iPad as my daily work station and it wont allow me to access the web version on the mobile app of chrome.
What it does do, it’s great at. But there isn’t much depth and what you can do is really basic. I just wish the app had the same features as the web version.
THE EDGAR J - Google sheets
So much better than all the others. Straightforward and east to use, once you’ve got the hang of it. Another huge advantage Google Sheets has is the ability to download a PDF from an internet browser so it can be edited immediately, without any hassles of having to open a PDF editor and trying to find that darn document that you downloaded.
Runners world US - Hmmmmm not happy
Find it difficult to use, permissions are weird and random and the format takes a while to get used to and doesn't convert as easily as it probably should. Am an iPad iPhone and Microsoft user on my devices so always seem to have issues using google docs.
Anipperess - No support for on going issues
Guess you can’t complain about the support from Google! Because there is non! I’ve been having an issue with google sheets freezing up and their developer support link is a joke! More like a help yourself by google community! Not what you’d expect from google developer support. It’s Google App! C’mon Google! You can do better than that! Support your app by being able to type your support question and have a response by the developer instead of having the google public community help each other. That’s not customer service! That’s help yourself service.
pda Simon - Great tool for sharing spreadsheets
It takes a little time to get your head around some of the features but once you do it becomes the spreadsheet of choice.
The ability to share spreadsheets with others is great.
Merging cells is superior than excel.
Visual presentation is good.
Speed of response does vary, however overall I find that once the sheet loads fully the lag is minimal.
You do have to realise that there is no save button how you leave the sheet is how it is saved, you can go back through history and revert to a previous version.
For a free app google sheet is the winner.
small_biz_user - Powerful yet platform variability
It’s quite a clever and Excel-like service that is shareable and on/off line capable. However, it’s apparent that the developers aren’t cross-platform users as the functionality is clunky and frustrating. If menus and adjustments were easy across desktop and mobile services it would truly be great from my basic user requirements
Little red frog - Useless for what i want to do
I love google sheets web interface, the app has a limited feature set and doesn’t allow me to do many of the things i wanted to do i=on my iPad. The worst part is I don’t seem to be able to use the web interface on my iPad. So frustrating trying to do anything. The App has a completely different interface to the web app which makes it hard to find things. It would be great to have a more consistent experience between the apps and the web interface.
Net2 Pas4# - Handy but fiddly with US settings
Are use it often on the go. I had to get used to it as it doesn’t have the same commands as Microsoft office excel. Also the date is set as per US standards and it is annoying that Australian setting can’t be applied is default. Otherwise it works well and it’s handy to access it from anyway
Rteettww - Not as good as the desktop version
I got rid of the pc solely to have an ipad. Was great at first but when i deleted something i had to use the puffin browser to go back the a previous file to reinstall. Would be awesome id apple could reciprocate
russianaddict - Missing functional top menu
I’ve tried this rather than the usual excel. Some functions aren’t intuitive and you don’t get the full functionality of the PC version - missing full function top menu. So it takes longer to do things and you don’t have everything you need.
Sallen.ams - Something’s changed
I’ve been quite happy with Google Sheets on iPad for a while now. But I think something changed with the keyboard layout in the last update. I find i’m constantly typing numbers when
I mean to type letters and having to do over. Maybe the ABC, 123 keys have moved? It’s a bit of a pain, but other than that, the app is great.
Tabitha Sasha - Excellent
Sometimes genuinely more user-friendly than the non-mobile version. Excellently adapted so you can always see what you’re typing, and access different sheets and accounts easily.
Nickmelor - Excellent
Really useful spreadsheet app that I use all the time. has all the features most casual users would ever need. I just wish Google would fix the finance functions which have suddenly stopped working. It’s a well known long standing issue which is not being addressed.
MigTam - Need Apple Pencil support
Hi the Sheets app need Apple Pencil support as typing the numbers and letters is annoying on touch screen if you don’t have a keyboard.
Also the search function only searches in the current sheet and there seems to be no option to search in all the sheets in a workbook.
Also doesn’t copy the table when copying and pasting in email .
Martinw544 - Easy to use and everywhere
It is easy to use on phone tablet and PC, quite comprehensive, can be used anywhere you can get a connection, syncs between devices very frequently and quickly
Djkobes83 - Works perfectly
Love how everything is immediate, shared spreadsheets update the moment someone makes a change and it’s seamless between multiple devices. I use it on my Mac, iPad and phone and it’s a brilliant easy to use app.
kenfran4350 - Met all my expectations
I used this program when travelling. Wonderful for tracking all those things you want to track as a traveller. App course could be used across devices.
AaronW ASMR - Crashed when inputting formula
Im getting crashed here every time when i wanted to input the formula of getting address a to address b distances, but it works fine on pc, im using an iphone btw.
Hope u guys can fix this soon. Thanks.
tommyshaw47 - Great app except for one thing
This app works really well for my usage and is easy to read on a phone screen. The only gripe I have is that it resets to the first spreadsheet of a book whenever my phone locks. This is infuriating when I have to keep locking my phone and reopening and then finding which spreadsheet I was on and where.
Happy as!!! - Great application
My job as a business analyst involves very deep knowledge of excel and writing complex macros. When using iPad or iPhone, I’ve found Google sheets to be a great replacement. While not as extensive as the MS product, it is certainly a good, bug free option, that is FREE!!!! Thanks Google.
Is good y'all - Easy to use, wherever you are!
Great functional app. Works well on my laptop, iPad and phone, as well as other computers when I need access on-the-go or in a different setting.
Xiaoyun LI - Very useful
I love it because I can share it to my workmates immediately and don’t have to email. Of cause I can use it through my computer, my iPad and even my phone. Yes it is easy to use.
2dayswork - Not surprised. Works perfectly!
Yet again, google has come up trumps with this app.
No issues to report since first download and subsequent updates.
2nd too none app!!
Wahooay - Not a frequent user but definitely very useful!
Mostly use for reading work rosters and community-volunteering projects. Haven't had a problem in a couple years' casual use. Thanks!!
fire_mat - Great app.
Great app, easy to use and integrates with all the other Google programs and apps.
The ability to have multiple users editing the document is a great feature.
Well done .
emro17 - Helps
This app helps you keep your personal storage belongings stay safe, you can also chat to your friends and family on schedule!!!!
SquirrelB8 - All the features you need
With none of the features you’ll miss left out, this light weight, easy to use app will make all your spreadsheet dreams come true!
Rodstarr2000 - Good Sheet ;)
This Application is good because you can do stuff in it you know what I mean. I’d recommend this to anyone that does not have it, even if they have no use for it. Thank you.
Da Big G - Sheets ain’t sheets
Whilst sheets on the iPad is ok I do find it somewhat frustrating that some functionality is different from the Pc version or doesn’t even exist at all on the iPad version.
I find there are times I need to do editing on the Pc which is a pain when I just want to work off my iPad.
Derind99 - Mostly pretty good
I use sheets a lot, especially in conjunction with forms. Still seems to have a few bits missing and a few bugs.
MikeStan65 - Love this app
It automatically synchronises on every device with google drive.
The only issue is that I can’t print only a selection (so I need to use the desktop computer version to do this).
Fastbarina - Easy
It works every time very easy and uncomplicated and yet powerful. Never loses my data and used it for years. And Free!! Can you ask for more?
Send Sydney - Excel sheet with password not working
Because of password compatibility we are not able to upload any document to maintain confidentiality nor use existing with password only on computer not on google drive
Imbasss - Great product
Great product however need a way to be able to password protect from opening sheets.
Sjshanns - Very usable
Familiar enough to find your way around without needing to seek help etc. some quirkiness with auto cell formatting features, but possibly local issue for me.
Good for reading and backup or on the go creation of spreadsheets.
Pippin 🐱 - Crashing since latest update
I have never had an issue before (although granted doing any heavy lifting in spreadsheets is painful on a smaller device IMO) however installing the most recent update yesterday (my iOS is up to date) seems to have rendered this app completely unusable, crashes within <2 seconds of attempting to open.
Lloydrough1 - Had only been open for 30 secs and crashed
Crashed already after 30 secs on an iphone
Tri nguyyyyyy - Nothing but crashes
Tried to open spreadsheets but to no avail. Constantly crashes
Sammie-Jay91 - Perfect for what I needed it for
Does exactly what I needed it for (budgeting), however on mobile device some features are a bit hard to use. Otherwise excellent.
BroskieMouskie - Google did well!
Google sheets and google documents are 2 of my most used apps. I struggle with technology but found these 2 work really well.
Anviman - Connectivity
Makes integrity a strong point and plus you manage and edit data without your laptops. I love this app.
NewsInspired - Just as any google products
It works really well across my all devices and also for muti-user editing.
Beware Microsoft excel you got a good competition.
CowJumpsMoon - Sometimes it crashes and won’t load file
Great accessibility and function. However sometimes files wouldn’t load or open, have to close and reopen the app to do that. Kinda inconvenient when you’re doing stuff on multiple apps
Josegra - Useful perfect
It is a perfect app, sharing up to 3 people working same time same page full online refresh....
Jergro06 - Makes things easy
Simple to use and easy to navigate. This has make keeping data easy.
SteveOinc - Google Sheets
Google Sheets gives me access to be online and offline and now with the benefit of office editing it is as good as having full office on your laptop! 👍👌
palmmy449 - Great app
I used this app for my work and it is great as I can work anywhere when I have time and save in my google drive. Brilliant
ThatchDave - Excellent app on iPad
Can input data on iPad quite well. Excellent programme all round especially on desktop/windows10/chrome. I recommend it!

Pixel money - Best... App... Ever...
It’s a really good app but I think that it needs to make us be able to copy the chart and past it on google docs.
Seanny1976 - Sheets
Very handy. I like how you can easily export a PDF copy.
Biker-js - Google sheets
Clearly not as good as Excel, but for free it’s superb!
dingleberry123 - Good app
Works well. Great for business applications.
katlouiseb - Constant freezing
I can't be in a document for more then 30 seconds before it freezes and I have to force the app to close and reopen it. But then it just does it again.
Vickyzash - Google Sheets
Enjoying the speed with which I can find information and keep up to date with finances.
Pammersi - Won’t stay open
Closes itself as soon as I scroll in my sheets. Worked for a bit on my iPad but never on my iPhone. Have reinstalled and updated a dozen times.... program just doesn’t work.
Frustrating when I have docs held hostage in sheets and can’t even keep the app open long enough to save them elsewhere.
Do NOT use! My docs are trapped!
Francis Adeogun - Good on the go
It’s a good gap and reviewing application. Thanks
KevinPerfectest - Very slow and useless
Scrappywilliams - Can’t open
When I try to open the Google sheets link in Gmail, it doesn’t let me.
trini on itunes - Just the Best
Wow! As soon as I sent my feedback. You literally just sent out an update.
Well then! Ignore my review because now it’s working PERFECTLY again!!!
Thank you so muchhhhhhh!!!! 5 STARS!!!
Mommy's_LittlePeanut - Switching Between Apps CONSTANTLY
Ok, this isn’t related to Google Sheets, but, why does it make you download EVERYTHING?! LIKE, JUST PUT ALL OF THIS IN ONE APP! IT’S ANNOYING!
Fra88888 - Awesome app but need Touch ID
I love having my sheets accessible from anywhere but the app should have the Touch ID option for security!!
gill nirmal - Worksheet
I love this app easy to use
Rikverde - Amazing
Thanks for the app
Yunitannuki - Good app for note taking
Good app for note taking. It would be awesome if I can draw on the app too.
#zenzen3 - Finally dark mode. Thanks!
utilisateur google 1475692911 - N’est pas complet sur mobiles
La seul manière d’avoir toutes les manipulations possibles est de l’ouvrier sur ordinateur donc la version mobile est presque inutilisable si on veut de la précision.
soupypete - It’s Gud.
Gud app. Like it. Need more?
1mahjong - Pandemic food house needs
First time I’ve had a successful day setting up a spreadsheet using this format program. Still find tools for working through formulas difficult. Never sure how do you see my spreadsheet once done so often send by email a copy to me before closing out.
Chef 4 my friends - Google sheets
Must add to Google Finance Attributes
1. Annual Dividend
2. 50 day and 200 day moving averages
winzar11 - Sheets
Use Mac but love Microsoft programs. This offers the best of both.
spaceleviathan - 5 star ratings are undeserved
You can’t line break within a cell and have to use formulas which is the most asinine thing ever. Every other app does this.
Immediately breaks workflow and causes me to switch to desktop.
eatoronto - Heavily Limited Functionality and Lack of Navigational Tools
Being unable to accomplish everything we would be able to do on desktop google sheets is quite disappointing. Especially considering you can access full google sheets using Safari.
Google, please fix this app, it sucks.
hdjnenduxudbebskocbfn - Don’t use it if you have any other options
If you have other options, use them
Shok Jacques - Doesn’t always sync
Used to love it but for a while now i find it does not always sync with shared sheets. Annoying when doing shared groceries😞
tomichGM - Great!
This is awesome. Exactly what I needed! ❤️
yogiinsingapore - I hate it
This is the worst app in the world
CodyMig - Its pk
The app is great in itself and works fine. The only downside is that if u dont know how it works its eh. And there's so much elements in some files that it lags put sooo much. Not good for big big projects. But overall good.
Pacoup - Stop scrolling the view
Does anyone at Google actually use this? Every time I select a cell and press Enter text, the view scrolls up when the keyboard appears.
Super annoying. My content basically just disappears every time I want to put in data.
And the annoying “Logged in as” notification that occludes content is there. Equally infuriating when I switch into Sheets, which is often deallocated out of RAM because the app is so heavy, so it just shows the “Logged in as” message again, literally occluding the Enter text field, so I have to wait several seconds until the message disappears just to use the app again after having switched to one different app.
When the app is deallocated, it also forgets where I was.
Andrea Koebel - Frustrating
Why do I continually need permission from a sender when I receive the same sheets to check my husbands hours every two weeks. I didn’t used to but now it pops up everytime!
tylerbfalk - Buggy
Floating keyboard on iPad does not work.
Tim7890123456 - Great for most basic spreadsheet needs
Terrific mobile app. Does most everything you need in a basic spreadsheet.
wilderness of mirrors - MacOs incompatible or unreliable
Worthless app won’t let me export single sheet to PDF without converting the entire book. I usually have to copy the sheet to Excel app in order to accomplish the export task. Also the edit cell with keyboard often crap-fails. Only reason I’m stuck with this is that it’s part of the google-fecal-suite.
ScarlettF0xx - The app lags sometimes
When I type, the words don't show up unless I exit the app and reopen it.
摸爽爽 - Fail to loading
I got stuck at loading state and had to remove then download the app again so that I could access to my sheets. Almost every 2 weeks and it happens again.
dalencoinOMG - Amazing, just 1 problem
It’s amazing, and it can’t anchor my creativity quite enough. Maybe add a suggestor??? :) :) :)
am all weep - Voice
The voice to text does not work
M190D - Access to my documents is great!
I need to access my documents regularly and this app helps me to do that and see it from my phone. It took a little while to figure out how to use it but that’s fine. I worked it out.
A F. L - Thank you
Cheapskate99.5 - Crashed on a large sheet, but not that large.
Not as useful as I hoped.
askmerryl - Not working
Keep getting kicked out.
Adele2871 - Where is the fix?
Haven’t been able to use this app for awhile now. Keeps freezing the shuts down! Been waiting for an update to fix this issue..but I see so are quite a few other users. I’m on IOS version 12.4.6. Deleted and reinstalled but no change.
Ishangandhi17 - Cannot open file
Why can’t i open file on web and edit it
Sturgeon sting - Great app!
Great app!! Easy to use and navigate.
suprhonda - Good program, but needs work
On my iPhone, it works well. But it closes my spreadsheet if the screen locks and I have to reopen my file after every time the screen time’s out. This is a bit annoying. My other iPhone apps do t do this, so it seems strange that a company as large as google can’t figure it out.
dooo doooooo app - Trashhhh
VolcomStone54 - App keeps crashing.
My app recently stopped working and I have tried deleting and reinstalling the app and it just won’t stop. Please release another update to hopefully fix this issue.

CHarr_ison - Sheets is useful in so many ways!
My whole working career I was a big Excel user. Now, in retirement, with lots of mobile devices and lots of time out and about, I use Sheets for all kinds of record keeping tasks and for fun things like automated scoring of my Canasta games with family & friends. It has so many useful functions and does all the core items that 99% of my spreadsheets need. And the web accessibility is one of its greatest features. So nice to be able to access my spreadsheets from anywhere on any device. Thanks Google!!
Alakran3 - Nearly perfect as a mobile app, few bugs to address
I’m not sure if it’s an issue with my iPhone X or the app itself, but since getting the X I’ve been experiencing major slowdowns after applying color to cells. I recall it only happening once a long time ago on my 7+ but it’s more frequent on the X. A force close resolves the issue, but would be nice to do away with the issue entirely.
Occasionally the copy/cut function doesn’t transfer the contents when swapping sheets, but that one’s not as annoying as the app slowing down entirely.
Sassy.sandra - 40 Day Sugar Fast
I LOVED this book. At first I thought it was going to be a harder way to do the fast than just daily emails. Then I realized it was as easy as emails and much more detailed than an email could ever be...more in-depth. I appreciate the way Wendy brought us daily to the throne of God to put HIM first by giving up sugar or whatever it was you needed to give up to make Him first in your life.
I highly recommend this book as Wendy is transparent and real in sharing her life and offered real ways to dethrone ourselves and put Jesus first.
zachvivier - Great organizer and analyzer
While I primarily use sheets to organize my own information and for university projects, it works well for many of the same purposes that excel does. Being the free alternative, sheets is a great online tool to use since you can swap between phone, computer, tablet, etc. seamlessly and collaborate like on Google Docs.
On iPhone it has a fair user interface and does what you’d expect it to. There isn’t really anything you could improve upon on a mobile version of sheets.
Gdsjjfyvfs - Not fully functioning app
I downloaded this to use on my iPad, because a friend was trying to set up a spreadsheet for a group we belong to. She had set data validation on the cells, but there were errors and wondered if I could figure out how to make it work properly. So, I downloaded the app and gave it a try. There was no way for me to view or edit the data validation attributes of a cell. That is, this is not a fully functioning product. What is the point of cloud computing, if you can’t access the same functionality from whatever platform you are using??? There are a whole bunch of menu items I see on my computer that I have no access to on this app.
JonCarissimo - Can’t unhide or do a lot of desktop things
Very limited. If you just need to do very basic spreadsheet things this is app can do it. But I’m using an iPad Pro and am extremely frustrated that google basically forces you to use their limited apps. Can’t even get sheets website in safari. Keeps redirecting me back to the app. This iPad is more powerful than a lot of computers but google doesn’t seem to have adapted to a world where tablets are growing in popularity. Have to go dig out my MacBook for the simple task of unhiding a sheet. Ridiculous. All of the google apps treat this iPad like its an iPhone 5. Getting gmail to not load it’s outdated mobile version is like pulling teeth and that’s one of the few things I can get google to do. Get with the times!!!
RedHen05 - Good, but Glitchy
I’m a music teacher and I use this app on my iPad and iPhone to maintain records on my students’ progress. For the most part I am happy with it because it is convenient, easy to access, and easy to use. However, the app has a tendency to crash from time to time and to freeze on a page—when this happens, the frozen page persists even after force closing the app several times. There’s also something a little clunky about the way it inputs text—it’s slow and randomly drops every few letters I type. I still think it’s a good app, but hope Google sorts out these glitches!
Rufilla - Less redirecting please
The app itself works great, but whenever I click on a link from an email or something it opens in Safari which then requires you to use the app, which doesn’t directly bring you to the app but to the App Store, and when you open the app from the App Store it goes to the homepage first where you then click the new file. It would be nice if there were a setting that would default open to the clicked file in Sheets directly.
Raerae222222 - Convenient!
I enjoy using sheets for anything that benefits from sharing for whatever reason. It makes it easy and super convenient to have an editable copy on all my devices! Plus, now my husband has no excuses. If it’s something he should see or keep track of as well, I just share it, and he can see/edit it also! However, I think my favorite feature is the formatting of alternating colors per line. I need things, pretty, neat, and organized, and this accomplishes all 3!
Mr. O'Riley - Love it but some issues
I love the google workspace, docs, sheets, slides, etc... however at the moment it has a couple hitches, especially because I use it a lot for classwork, and we are permitted to use iPads in class. So in some instances, computer only features such as deleting cells and customization of graphs would make completing assignments much easier if they were implemented into the app.
Also, at the moment I am unable to open some of my documents on my device as it says the app needs to be updated, yet my app is up to date.
kpav1 - Most of what you need for light analysis
I've always loved the open ecosystem of Google's offerings, and sheets is still doing it for me, especially with what appear to be some great new features. No more Microsoft Excel headaches with apple ecosystem integration...yay! (Windows were made to be opened, not to be confusing and closed, imho) Seasoned users will probably find everything about the experience to be rather intuitive, but beginners/novices might need to explore a bit. Overall ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🙏 Keep up the good work!
Alpha353 - Needs some bug fixes
Fairly often when dealing with multiple sheets on one project it bugs out and erases all information on one or more sheets or fails to save our load sheets. Having said that it is a wonderful and useful application that I use for my career often (construction) though the inconveniences are a bit of a set back when you lose sets of information for given days when it decides to get buggy. Hope they fix. All and all good app
Ltd52 - Best App Ever
I was a big fan of Excel, until my desktop died and I lost everything. I do a lot of volunteer work and I had several people asking me for information that I no longer had. I heard about Google Sheets and my life has been much simpler. I recently had my laptop crash and I wasn't freaking out, because I didn't lose any spreadsheets or documents. They were all safe and sound. If I can't attend a meeting I just share my information with all the attendees. I'm in love!!❤️❤️
133128677 - This is a Great Product
I use to work with Excel daily at work. I have been retired for a few years and started using Google sheets. This program helps me keep track of all the things I did before but is a lot easier to use. It works with all my devices. I use it seamlessly between an iPad, a MacBook Air, Asus Chromebook and a Pc. I can use any device to edited my spreadsheets and this is very convenient. I feel this program is indispensable for my workflow and would be lost without it.
Joni Ella - Small Business
I just started a very small business that includes only myself. I needed a way to keep my expenses organized and I didn’t need all the extras that go along with some of the larger book keeping software.
I’m so glad I found this! I have the app downloaded on my phone plus on the home screen of my laptop at home and I’m able to get in anywhere! Thank you for having such a great simple solution to organize expenses of the business!
Suhani12 - You can not go wrong
Anything from Google is great. Every program I’ve used from them is bullet proof and and they listen to their users. I have been working with software for the past 30 years. You can look long and hard but we very hard to find a company that cares as much as Google. The app is very simple and it has been upgraded several times and has never crashed in the years I’ve used it. Google sheets is outstanding.
A. Consultant - Missing ALL KINDs of capabilities the web app has
This app, like all of Google’s iOS apps I’ve tried, is missing lots of features that the web app has—even basics like the ability to type special characters. The interface is difficult to use, many features and functions are missing, and interactions are difficult. Simple actions like copy/paste and selecting cells don’t work well or even reliably.
From any other company this app would be an embarrassment, but how else can you use Sheets on iPad? You’re stuck with Google’s poorly designed, poorly implemented, poorly supported app.
Hikercycler - Very good except editing text cell
This is a very good app with lots of nice features. Only problem I have found is a bug in the editing of a cell formatted for wrapped text. If you are editing at the end of a text cell's content, no problem. But if you edit in the middle of a cell there is a problem. If you use glide typing the caps comes on after every word. If you type individual letters the caps comes on after every letter.
This is obviously a bus and I have reported as such in the past, but it has not been addressed yet.
MY OPINION - We all have one - Great free option
I don’t use the spreadsheet like a mathematics expert, so I can’t share on numbers in columns — EXCEPT when I try to put numbers in columns and the app tries to convert them into something I didn’t type! Like dates, or money, or something I didn’t ask for.
Take the “automated” feature out, and you’ve got something! I’m sorry that I don’t know how to turn automatic features off, and it’s annoying.
I AM GLAD to be able to make a rough spreadsheet for names, addresses and such... or, a chart that can be cut/pasted into a power point ... YES, I try to move back and forth between Google and Microsoft products, ON MY APPLE DEVICES!
YES, you guessed it... I have ADHD-I.
But if anyone can MAKE IT WORK, it’s me!
A great product for free! It’s Google’s FREE APPS, free e-mail, and FREE G-drive that keeps me coming back to learn more of what Google can do for me!
4 ⭐️ because I don’t like automated conversions without my permission.
Trunksi3 - Quick and simple
Possibly the best-in-breed mobile spreadsheet solution. It has access to the main features of the online version, without becoming overly complicated. My favorite feature of Sheets is the ability to use them anywhere without jumping through a ton of hoops; they're stored right in my Google drive. I simply click and go. It also works well with a bluetooth keyboard; something that some of the other solutions do not do well.
R Patwari - Quasi-Functional
Google Sheets (and the rest of their office products) work very well through a browser on MacOS, however with each update Google seems to be crippling the iOS versions (Sheets, Docs, Slides). Cut-and-paste with keyboard shortcuts used to work, now don't (and haven't been fixed despite several updates). Entering text in a spreadsheet cell bounces the screen distractingly up and down and then erases the contents in the cell fairly consistently. Features disappear from one version to the next.
Unfortunately, now I cannot use iOS Chrome to access documents (I could before). I can't imagine the smart and talented engineers at Google are crippling their own iOS app, but it sure seems like it.
Smpa225 - GREAT APP!
This app is fantastic! I use it to keep track of my exercise, my calories and food throughout the day. I can see my progress on any of my devices from my phone, to my iPad, to my computer it is great. It is simple and easy to use and quick to pick up. I wish I could use my Apple Pencil to write quicker but it is still fantastic. I would also like to see it easier to switch from page to page on my Ipad. It is a phenomenal app for school, work projects and even person uses. I would highly recommend.
ihsan kurdish - Please add this feature
All my business is depending on this app, this app is very very great and easy to use. The only problem that I face is that i cannot insert a photo to a cell by using my iPhone or ipad and also when I do this by PC and when I move the row the photo is not moving with the row. Please please, I want to insert photo to a cell using my iphone directly, I am looking for an update 😭😭😭😭😭
Google is the best always ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Please please I am asking for that feature only
lovemyhorse12 - LET ME OPEN FROM A LINK PLEASE
please for the love of god include a feature where you can open the sheets app from a link. every time i try to click on a document from a third party app (for example- trying to open a sign up link made on the sheets app in a class groupme) it just prompts me to download an app that i already have and when i do open it there is no way of accessing the thing i was just trying to click. i have had this problem for YEARS and i’m honestly shocked that GOOGLE of all companies hasn’t recognized and fixed this issue which essentially renders the app useless unless you’re starting a new sheet from scratch!!!!!!
ghjgkgyh - Spreadsheet app
The best spread sheet app so far. I needed an app for spreadsheets. I have a project and I needed to organize and store information, so I needed an app for that purpose. I purchased an app for $5 on my MC book Air, however, this app’s capability was so limited that it couldn’t help me at all. I made a research about the best apps for spreadsheets and this app was the third one on that list. What I think is that this app should be #1 since it’s for free, it has all I need, there is a mobile version and it’s for free.
DavoKC - Pretty good for the price.... FREE!
Great app. I love that I can use these spreadsheets from my laptop, to my tablet, to by phone. They are always up to date and relatively easy to use. As with other Google productivity apps, everything is cloud based, so there is no saving files. My favorite thing is the ability to share files through a basic web link. You can also export in a variety of formats that all seem to translate pretty well to other programs.
KM155 - Good but please add.....
This program like the rest of the Google Drive suite is getting better and better. It runs faster on my new iPad Pro than in any browser on any of my full computers.
The one feature that I really need more than anything from the desktop version is to be able to see edit history and a spreadsheet and to have the ability to restore back to a previous version when necessary. Those are the only 2 tasks that I find myself remoting into my desktop for.
ThisIsRidiculous19 - Open in App
I honestly don’t see the point in having the app anymore. Every time I click on a link to edit a shard google sheet, the pop up about “Google Sheets can only be edited in the app” is ridiculous. It’s ridiculous because when I open the app, it doesn’t take me to the sheet that I’m trying to edit. It’s almost as if there’s a missing link between clicking on a link from off the internet to the app popping up and allowing you make edits in. I would be completely fine if the app actually acknowledged the link that I’m trying to edit. Now I have to find a computer and edit it from there. Please fix this issue or tell me something that I’m doing wrong.
CindyFrank222 - Sheets does everything I need it to do
I was able to import an excel document and with just a little work getting the right formulas that were needed, the document was up and running. It’s very easy to share the information also. Sheets is fairly user-friendly and does everything that I need it to do. I’m glad I found this app, it solved a problem I had and allowed me to now work with my document anytime I need to from my iPhone.
itbeanew1 - Needs more functionality
I’m no developer, but considering Sheets is web based in its full version, it seems odd that the iPad version is so neutered. My organization restricts G-Suite access via browser, so I am forced to use the app, or pull out my giant crappy corporate issued laptop.
Considering the iPad now has trackpad support, perhaps implementing a touch optimized experience with reduced functionality and a trackpad optimized experience with full functionality would be an option. Maybe have it automatically switch between the two, depending on if a trackpad is discovered?
donniele11 - Spreadsheets on my phone, it’s really convenient.
With Google Sheets, I can budget my income and expenses in a monthly format.
I created an interactive program in a monthly format to see our family finances. This allows me to see current and projected future balances for any given day of the month.
Throughout the month, cash levels in bank accounts are constantly changing. With my phone, I can see a spreadsheet for the whole month. ✅
Jab02r - Good App with BIG problems
I love sheets on a computer; however the mobile app has one large issue. For many students, this app works as a way to sign up for things, group plan, and collaborate. Yet, when a link to a sheet or even a google doc is sent through apps like GroupMe, E-mail, or even just group text or I messages, rather than immediately opening in the app, the user is directed to safari, where a pop-up requests that they down load the app to edit, even if it is already on the device. For me, this renders the app basically useless. If this bug could be fixed it would be really helpful!
Gexah95 - Loading
I went to load comments on a doc. It read there were no comments but to be the first one to. There was no option to add a comment. I left the page and opened the doc again. This time it would NOT load. It kept loading with the grey circle. Disconnected from WiFi even went to airplane mode to reconnect. Still the same thing for the next 3 attempts. After some time I decided to try again. All though it worked I became frustrated through this process. Since then there have been no software issues.
Shipbrick7 - Awesome for a Spreadsheet Junkie!
When I discovered this and could use it anywhere on my iPhone, I was hooked. It's unique to others SS but with a short learning curve I was sheeting all kinds of things. This replaced keeping records on a $ mileage tracking for taxes, doing estimates for customers& general records etc. It's been a super time saver. I can be at my laptop at night and pickup where I left off at lunch break. It's a must for individual small business peeps and spread sheet junkies like me.
Bnieco - Are other reviewers using the same app as me?
I can’t imagine why anyone would review this positively unless maybe they’ve never used any spreadsheet program. Ever. Maybe not even a calculator. Excel at least feels like they know iPad exists. Sheets acts like all we want to do is view an occasional sheet from others. Menu bar disappears every time I edit a cell then reappears when I hit enter. Formatting options are hard to find. Entering formulas is dramatically different from the web app on PC or Mac. Ugh, I grow tired just thinking of typing out all the horrible this thing contains. Maybe people think it’s got a retro vibe..... 1985 retro...
KingHostile - Waste of my time
I was sent a spreadsheet on discord and was asked to edit my part. I opened it and was notified that I needed this app to edit it. I get the app and I learn I can’t access the spreadsheet from it, so I looked through “help” to try and figure it out but all of the help appears to be for PC users which is useless to me because I don’t own a single computer. The only iOS support I could find is how to download apps. So I tried to go back to the original doc link in the discord, then tried to edit it. It told me I needed the app to edit it and didn’t have any new options.
Doesn’t do what I need it to do. Instructions aren’t for my device. No real support. Absolutely useless.
CheyDragon - Works well except when opening from other apps
All the google document apps work perfectly straight from the app, but if I try to open a sheet that is sent to me through a different app or website, it won’t open in the Google Sheet app. It says “this works better in the app, do you want to open the app?” And I press “open app” and instead of taking me to the app I already have downloaded on my phone, it takes me to the App Store. When I open the app from the App Store, the sheet I want to edit isn’t pulled up. Am I the only one with this problem?
Bribold1 - Can’t open links
This app was nice when it worked but since the last update it’s almost useless to me now. If my friend posts a link to a google sheet she made, I cannot open it in the app. If I click the link or click to edit the sheet it asks to send me to the App Store. When I go to the App Store it says open the google sheets app. But when i open the app it doesn’t open her sheet. So what’s the point except my own sheets, which I have very few.
Alex K 8 - Needs Improvement, Still...
With the most recent update, I thought my problems with google sheets were solved. They mostly were. There are still some issues. One being how when you add a row that is in between two rows that have writing, it screws up the matching colors of the cells on the whole spreadsheet. And forget fixing it on the app, because it claims that the cell is “white” even though it is CLEARLY gray. It is very annoying and I feel shouldn’t be too hard for Google to fix. Please fix this, it makes using the Google sheets app a real pain.
TealVader - Awesome App
I have always wanted a way to have a list of books I’ve read on me. I am a huge book reader and often end up buying a book I have. My husband introduced this to me not knowing I could also use it on my iPhone which is the perfect way to have the list “on me.” It is easier to type in the sheets on a computer but you can pretty easily do it on the app. You just need drive and Sheets both. Love this app!
twoferrets - Better than Apple’s version
4 stars for now since I’ve only just started using it; still exploring some functionality. Main thing for me is portability between phone and laptop- being Google based makes this a dream to work with that way and is something that was cost prohibitive with the Apple spreadsheet app. Interface & menus mostly easy to navigate and use. Some items like hide/unhide columns not where I expected them to be, but help menu *actually helps.* So far so good.
1968 gamer from WV - Sheets makes collaboration simple
I love google sheets! Sharing sheets is easy and allowing others to enter their own data makes my life easier. A little tricky on my iPhone but great on iPad and decent on iPad mini.
It seems like every week I find a new reason to share sheets with family, friends or coworkers. We plan family dinners and share work schedules instantly and easily.
I love the versatile cell format options. Better all the time.
Mdeezie72 - Incredibly useful
Being able to access and edit spreadsheets in a consistent and feature-rich environment across platforms and devices is incredibly useful, and definitely one of those things that makes me say ‘2017 is pretty awesome’. Thank you for all the hard work needed to keep this working smoothly (and constantly improving) through iOS/Windows/android updates updates and changes!
Linda Layman- Hull - Lynette’s love note
Linda Layman-Hull- Let me count the ways that you have changed my life. You made a great impression on me by a short saying I will never forget: When I was down about something you said, “It’s the World, it’s not Heaven.” Wow!!!! Also, giving up control to God in my life. When I finally did that, my life totally changed. The Holy Spirit guides me daily. Thank you Lynette for all you are and do for others. We will miss you and love you always! Happy Retirement!!!
NamcyR - I like this program it was perfect until they did an update
Now every time I try to type on the keyboard a black keyboard pops up on the screen and you cannot see what you’re trying to type. I have tried everything to get rid of the pop-up keyboard with no luck. I should qualify this it is happening on my iPad. If anyone knows how to resolve this problem please let me know as I hate the program now.
KRValdez - Review
I guess this would be great if you had an idea of how these programs or grafts work. Because I don’t, I have hours into one project, well, trying to set up a project. Not even able to understand it enough to duplicate again at a fast rate. I will have to probably spend more hours trying to figure it out again. I don’t have a good review because I don’t have a good idea how to work them in the first place. So I can’t say that this product offers a better user friendly system or a worse more confusing or constricting system. But I have been asked to give a review, so here it is
as6699 - So convenient and shareable in real-time, BUT
Sheets is wonderful. Powerful, shareable, and convenient. BUT there are two things that drive me crazy:
1) sheets are part of Drive, and they can inexplicably disappear or get moved. Starring what you need to find again helps, but I occasionally pull my hair out trying to find a specific document.
2) shame on Google and Microsoft for not playing better together. I’m TIRED of reinserting formulas that don’t convey when I’m converting s Sheet to Excel and back. FIX IT and get along, you guys.
legit fits - Only One Issue
We love google sheets and even use it to share inventory information within our company. It’s excellent for its automatic save and multiple user accessibility.
The only issue we’ve encountered is that sometimes information disappears! It’s an unsolved mystery since the auto save feature is typically consistent, but our audit revealed some issues. We haven’t chosen to stop using google sheets, but do use with caution or a safety net.
CatsOrDogs - Way better than that other one on my phone
This app is working really well for me...... ideally, I fill it out daily, and share finished spreadsheet with my spouse. I gave it a 4 because I have to delete the “example entries” every time I set up a new month, and I find that irritating. It may be unfair to take a star for that because the examples helped me learn how to use the sheet in the beginning. Anyway, as stated before, it’s way better than the other app that came on my phone !!!!!
rseneta - Why do I always have to Get the App???
I love google sheets on my computer, but any time someone sends me a link on my phone, I go to open it and it says I need the app to edit. Well I have the app, but it always says get the app, which takes me to the App Store, which makes me then click open- and it doesn’t go to the sheet link I just clicked.
I don’t get it- why does it not just open the sheet in the app like every other google product? Other than that it is nice to be able to edit spreadsheets on my phone- if I can ever get to them without having to click 10 different places.

@sethrosen google sheets
I will now exclusively be using the notes app for docs, an abacus for sheets, carrier pigeons for email, and a single post it note for my calendar because these new google icons are atrocious.
