Ratings and Reviews
Hard to understand complaints
Reading through the reviews of this app it is refreshing to see negative as well as positive comments. As a macOS user for over 20 years I have registered my share of complaints about MS products and policies but some of the complaints listed in these reviews are simply untrue or the result of user error. Personally after resigning to the fact that Word is and probably will remain the benchmark and industry standard for word processors I find this app to be the perfect portable companion to MS Word for macOS. There simply is no better alternative.
Adding to this previous version review I would like to say that having cut my teeth on the iPhone using this app on an iPad is a dream in comparison. I don't use office 365, I store and share my documents via One Drive which is now available to the Files App in iOS 11 making moving documents from iCloud to One Drive and vice versa a breeze. If any of the naysayers can find a better alternative to this app I'd like to hear it.
Text to word functionality
The app can be brilliant and great at some times but at others it can be hard to use and create documents. Sometimes the orientation of text and graphs are mixed and out of order when move documents. Also when you start a new document sometimes it can not work and fails to be able to type anything however this is a very rare occurrence. I like how it’s integrated to be able to function with computers and makes work documents so much easier. Keep up the good work Microsoft.
Word for iPad is cumbersome and difficult to edit. It takes me 2-3 times as long to do simple things like editing because the cursor doesn’t easily work in this format compared to having a mouse. Also because Microsoft and Apple don’t play well together, be sure you know where you’ve stored things as you can loose them. Microsoft will want you to save to their cloud, Apple to theirs and if you have no internet, the documents must be stored locally on the tablet. There is also poor integration with using the pencil. Compared to .pdf marking up capability word is clunky and demands a keyboard and mouse to work optimally. Go back to the drawing board Microsoft! 😖
