Basically Notes, but called ‘Word’


Look, we have Word on our iPads people, that’s awesome in itself. Running an app that was originally designed specifically for computers is pretty impressive... or is it? How can there be so little features on such a powerful device, such as the iPad Pro? I’ve had to change to Pages, even though I am far more familiar with Word. Even a feature as simple as being able to alphabetise simple lists does not exist. The iPad Pro cash be considered to be more powerful that MacBooks of the past, and they were fully capable of running the full package of Word, so why cant the iPad? I genuinely think that Notes has got nearly all of the features that Word has to offer. It’s almost as if we’re using a ‘beta’ version of an expensive compilation of apps

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

Dizzy pop

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!
