Very useful but...


I know most users want to auto save their work as they're going along but I don't. I use it for my work quotes so generally use one as a template and just edit a few bits, then save as another project.

I wish their was an option to turn off auto save permanently. I know you can turn it off when you open the document, but I sometimes forget that and before I think about it, I've already changed loads.

I also wish there was a 'tab' key. I used to use that a lot on Word on my laptop. There's maybe another way I don't yet know about, but I tend to have to put a hundred odd 'spaces' in to get the desired effect.

Great fun and work helpful

I nearly gave this a four star but I gave it five stars because there isn't many other apps to beat Word. The only reason that it could have had 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ is because it took ages to download and I really wanted to do something but there is no problem with the actual app in its self. I love word and I love writing long pieces of work on it because there are so many options to use to make the work you do your own. If you are looking for an app for school work or your job this app is perfect, easy to save, simple to print, fun to do and FREE! I love this app!

Poorer by the day

Until recently, I was loving this app but since the last update it’s really hit and miss. It often won’t select text to cut and paste and won’t always save documents which is really frustrating. Not the end of the world as it usually gets there in the end, but it really does make basic tasks much more time consuming than they were.
Update:Virtually useless on iPad now. Freezes constantly, more often than not won’t do basics like editing or saving. Went to Word after becoming frustrated with the shortcomings and glitches of google docs but now docs is not perfect but still far more the reliable of the two. I realise Microsoft are wanting people to take out subscriptions but apart from the fact I can’t really afford to, on the strength of this, I wouldn’t anyway.
