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!!!
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.
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.
Ryker X Gevaarlijk - Getting There, But ….
My work uses sheets for all documentation and I WISH i could finally start using the iOS app for full functionality, but i can’t because of one issue that is not possible on iOS. For some of my work I use Cells for note taking, so seeing that i input a larg quantity of characters, I make edits all the time throughout the week. With the application, editing the cells shows a very small portion of whats in the cells. If i have 2 paragraphs of info in a cell, it takes FOREVER to “scroll” to the section i need to edit. This has completely turned me off of using the iOS application for any work input, only for viewing. The newest update got me excited, but then killed my excitement haha. Now when a cell is selected, there’s a pop up of the contents to view but only to view, to edit the cell, it goes back to the original way of editing. If there was a way to edit the contents within the pop up view of the contents, that would change everything. Please think about it!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!,
Plat-o-pus - Make like the web version
For experienced spreadsheet users, the app version of Sheets is really terrible. It would not allow you to use any keyboard shortcuts even if you own Apple’s Magic Keyboard.
I also do not understand why it would not show the top drop down menu like the web version.
This is a very trimmed version of the original and it is really painful to be productive while using it. I do not understand why it produces a lot of errors when using formulas such as GoogleFinance. In the App it would endlessly display “...getting data” while if I open the same file in Safari using web version of sheets it retrieves the data instantly.
I deleted it and open Sheets inside Safari. You will be very thankful that it operates normal that way.
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.
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.
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.
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~~!
Nickickk - Months of data RUINED
Everything was working fine until I opened another app. When I switched back to sheets, the app restarted. I opened the spreadsheet file and half of my cells are mixed up and scrambled all together!!! I’ve never seen this before in my entire life! All my cells contains random info from other cells and my formulas are all ruined! I cannot undo or find a way to restore my spreadsheet! It’s been hours and I cannot find a solution! I don’t know what happened but I lost months of data!!! How am I supposed to trust an app that can ruin an extremely important file?! Absolutely scary!!! I am extremely upset and frustrated that my spreadsheet file became ruined for absolutely no reason!!! All I did was open another app, and switched back to sheets and my entire file is all mixed up and ruined!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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 :)
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.
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!
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.
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!
Yofi Grey - Crashes
Crashes every time I open it, every time, on iPad or on iPhone. I think it just can’t handle the array formulas or charts, or other complex tasks that I usually perform in Google Sheets. Which, honestly, is just about every spreadsheet I make.
More to the point, you can no longer access google sheets online from iPad either, meaning spreadsheet work on this machine is totally out of the question unless I wish to go through the ridiculous tedium of using teamviewer or some such to control my PC. No, thank you.
I’m really hoping in the future, especially with the whole “your next computer might be an iPad” campaign that apple has been doing, we’ll see a fully functional .xls program for iPad.

#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.
Fizzingwhizzbee - Formatting features missing from app version
I find the Sheets app really useful but some formatting features are missing from the app version I use on my iPad Pro. For example, you can't change the page orientation from portrait to landscape. Online help suggests you can by clicking on the three dots icon in the top right-hand side and selecting the Page Setup menu. There is no Page Setup menu! It is very frustrating not being able to do something so simple. If, in fact, there is a way to change it in the app, it certainly is not obvious how. In general, the app version of Sheets is not very user friendly
BrisBelle - Great app but fix update
I use the sheets app daily and love it for organising life, work and study.
However the latest update is proving very frustrating. The new update forces you to click on the pencil before being able to update any cells. It’s inefficient and means you can’t just click on any cell and start updating it, and if you’re swapping between apps you need to manually click the pencil again rather than continue where you left off. Extremely frustrating, please fix this update so I can enjoy using the app again.. thank you!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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 .
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.
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.
Emro17 - Helps
This app helps you keep your personal storage belongings stay safe, you can also chat to your friends and family on schedule!!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Healthy AJ - Powerful. Free. Wow.
Thanks google for providing such a powerful spreadsheet tool, making it completely usable from my small iPhone, providing the space to store / edit files and providing it free. Wow.
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 .
Anviman - Connectivity
Makes integrity a strong point and plus you manage and edit data without your laptops. I love this app.
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.
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!
ThatchDave - Excellent app on iPad
Can input data on iPad quite well. Excellent programme all round especially on desktop/windows10/chrome. I recommend it!
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).
Tri nguyyyyyy - Nothing but crashes
Tried to open spreadsheets but to no avail. Constantly crashes
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.
Lloydrough1 - Had only been open for 30 secs and crashed
Crashed already after 30 secs on an iphone
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.
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.
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.

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!
Vickyzash - Google Sheets
Enjoying the speed with which I can find information and keep up to date with finances.
Tilerv2 - New Edit Feature
New feature makes you click edit before each new entry for IOS.. unproductive, please remove !
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!
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.
Vanessahopemacias - Update Sucks
This update makes using this app impossible. Sometimes I can fill in squares, half the time the app won’t let me type. Commands don’t work. Fix this
Spark333555 - Constantly doesn’t save my work
I am repeatedly losing work I have done because it won’t save it properly. I have a strong Internet connection. I double, triple and quadruple check that it is saved, only to open it next time and have work missing.

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.
Dingleberry123 - Good app
Works well. Great for business applications.
Scrappywilliams - Can’t open
When I try to open the Google sheets link in Gmail, it doesn’t let me.
KevinPerfectest - Very slow and useless
Robloxisthebestforever - Shut up haters
First of all this is really good and helps me a lot so u should just shut your mouth understood let apps be how they wanna be no pressure on them
Gooberlvr - It keeps closing!!
Can open files but as soon as I try to scroll through the app closes. So frustrating!
Isaro88 - What happened?
I used to love the mobile version of this app, but after the last update I can’t find any way to enter a little or a lot of data w/out tapping the little edit symbol for every cell. If there is a work-around, it’s not v. obvious. I just can’t see why it’s required now. Sorry, Google, but since this new ‘improvement’ is making me work on my laptop anyway, I’m moving back to Open Office.
Heeyden - New update not good
Now have to click the edit button every time you want to write something! It’s crazy !
Davey99 - Hard to adjust column width.
It’s almost impossible to touch the right spot to change column width. Row height works ok, except on iPod (or phone), where neither column width nor row height work. Otherwise is better than other apps.
Nicolesegal - March 21-2021
iPad Mini 5
Please correct the latest bug and stop putting the overall rating 4.7 for old ratings !
It still sucks. I loved your app but now it’s getting worse - I have to press the row or Edit button multiple times to be able to change a number or date !!!!!
Since your last version of Google Sheets, there is an ‘Edit Button’ inside & at the end the row, which we have to open every time we need to change anything ! This causes us extra time in updating the sheet.
Myheadh - Why no conditional formatting?
I had to use conditional formatting in school but then realized this option isn’t on google sheets please add conditional formatting
Loupetron - Needs so much work to be usable on iPad
I can use Numbers or Excel and it knows I have a mouse pointer and keyboard. It’s been nearly a year since trackpad support was added to iPadOS and several years since keyboard shortcuts were added to iOS/iPadOS. Please take some time to update your app!
Justperr - No as good as it web version
This app misses plenty of the key fonctionnalities available on the web version. It honestly doesn’t make it worthwhile. If you tried to use an iPad as a substitute for a laptop, don’t expect a lot from this app.
I like air bruch - I hate this app
No it is good not bad
Korfee - Crashing
It keeps crashing on me. On my new ipad5. I am upset because I like this program better than excel
Brieanna33 - Never loads
I try to open i and most times it never loads, I’ve deleted it, updated it, restarted my phone, etc. Literally the worst app I’ve ever had and I can’t delete it because I need it for work...
Kevin Ho/ - Amazing!
This app is amazing, but I wish it was easier to copy and paste into google docs but other than that I love this.
KatyShrew - Used to be a great app...now it's an exercise in frustration!
Every time I select a cell, the screen itself jumps back to the last cell I entered data inti. I have a very large spreadsheet, and am spending far too much time scrolling around, trying to see the cell I'm wanting to work with.
Gohabsgo2142 - Need more fonctionality
We need the app like the real google sheets on the website. Missing functionality, full keyboard support for iPad, mouse control. I use the website on my iPad for my work just because the app is not what the product should be. Common Google !
我是小小小丫 - 有bug所以没给5星
Bydgufty - Usually
I LiKeD ThIs ApP So MuCh
TheVikesBull53 - Keeps crashing for no reason
I can’t use the app as it’s constantly crashing and deleting stuff
MtStrachan - Not impressed
Workflow is awkward. Functionality is limited compared to desktop version. I was really hoping this app would allow me to ditch the Chromebook and work only on an iPad, but no.
Raacs87 - Great up but could use upgrades
I think you should be able to group your google sheets in file folders. I have so many sheets it’s just a big list on my iphone, so unorganized. Would be so much better if I could organize it in different folders for each of my companies.
Red_Rain77 - Great App, however, it's constant crashes makes it unusable.
Great App, however, it's constant crashes makes it unusable.
Jfffkfmgnv fnekrcifktkv - great app!
Definitely recommend! I use this for my math class. We’ve recently been doing graphs and stuff so I make my graphs on here and I like how I can copy it and paste it In google docs to submit it! Thanks!
Zgby30954509 - What happened!!
Looks like there was an update a week ago and I have now lost 3 spread sheets!! Not at all happy! 3 years of work is now gone!!
Before these sheets went missing I would have happily rated with 4 stars. Boooo!!
TurquoiseKitty - School
Works well. My class use it for work it’s pretty cool with formulas and stuff
Kheana - Mediocre
It would be good if I can copy and paste graphs or make candlestick graphs while on iPad Pro
Francis Adeogun - Good on the go
It’s a good gap and reviewing application. Thanks
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!
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.

TRMS 8th grade tech students are working on spreadsheets. As an unplugged activity, tech students created Google Sheets tips/how- to posters then presented their helpful hints to the class. #CTEmonth
I can’t believe my a/c just kicked on. It’s hit 86°F today (and I have my oven on). A week ago I was shivering in multiple layers of clothes under 4 layers of sheets and blankets and seriously considering using precious battery power to Google ‘hypothermia’.
@dickiebush The habit of habit tracking. Easy. Google sheets with my 10 most important habits I want to repeat every day. I aim to get an 80% compliance.
I remembered @JanelSGM's tweet about making a website with just Google Sheets and @SpreadSimpleHQ and I was like hmmmmm, could this work for me?🤔
Yall ever used Google Sheets to map out a #ttrpg one shot? I am really enjoying it.
I can use each block to layout details and concepts of a scene/place and then use the adjacent blocks to signify scenes/places the party may go next.

@LadyToluu Google sheets 😥
@i_am_daniele a belated thank you for this blog post: .
Found it yesterday and it's literally saved me hours of work / troubleshooting... plus I now have the coolest Google Sheets in town <3
@Shpigford Not that should be meaningful to you (once used this for a lazy api that did lots more than your personal sheet appears to) but sometimes Google sheets play silly buggers.

@DrKateTO It's like we need to introduce the government to Google Sheets
