Office 365 subscriptions purchased from the app will be charged to your iTunes account and will automatically renew within 24 hours prior to the end of the current subscription period, unless auto-renewal is disabled beforehand. To manage your subscriptions or to disable auto-renewal, after purchase, go to your iTunes account settings. A subscription cannot be cancelled during the active subscription period.

Ratings and Reviews
Working offline is hopeless...
The idea behind OneDrive is great - access your files anywhere, on any device. On the iPad, though, things only work smoothly if you have a constant internet connection everywhere you go, which isn’t a realistic scenario for me.
In theory, you can select files and folders for offline use, but in practice this is very erratic. You can select files and folders and the little green icon appears next to them, so all looks good, but when you try to use the file without an internet connection, it’s pot-luck whether it works or not. Sometimes with large folders, setting them for use off line fails completely, with no error message - the green icon appears, but the next time you look, it’s gone again.
Do NOT rely on this feature, and don’t make the mistake I did and buy an iPad Pro as a Mac replacement on the strength of it.
Avoid office whenever possible
There are many things I dislike about Microsoft office in general and its limitations on iOS:
1) The apps themselves may be free, but the subscription isn’t.
One of my main reasons why I only use office for work is how there is a yearly subscription that has to be paid. Luckily I am not the one needs to worry about paying this, however I am appalled at how normal home users need to pay a subscription and cannot buy the software outright. There are many other apps which can do everything that this range of products can do (and more) which are free or paid for in one purchase (iWork and G Suite for example).
2) Ties you into the office ecosystem through a horrible file system.
When saving a file (like a word document for example) the app defaults to either using your OneDrive (Microsoft’s cheap-expensive version of iCloud) or a terrible iPad file UI. (The app does offer alternative cloud storage solutions but suspiciously DOES NOT include iCloud in this extensive list)
3) The lack of support for iOS features.
Office does a fantastic job of not keeping up to date with the operating systems. The apps feel like they were made for iOS 8 because of their clunky interface and lack of other features like support for iCloud or drag and drop, the latter of which was introduced in iOS 11.
It looks good but...
The app looks great. And at first it makes you think, cool 😎. But once you realize it doesn’t always understand how to put things in order simply from A to Z correctly. Or trying to delete things from your recycling bin can be buggy.
Or the fact that you can make files offline, but if you wanna do a whole folder you need to pay, but wait. The screen to pay and go premium doesn’t even work/come up 😑. I’m just gonna go back to Dropbox or use google drive. Unless they sort out these buggy problems in the future. Overall, you store your things fine, but some of the little quality of life things can be really annoying in the long run 🏃🏾
