Makes life easier

V. 2.1 update still hasn't address these problems

Four updates after the v.2.0 update, these problems are still there. I am giving the lowest rating to the update, not the app itself.

Three more problems I didn't list in my last review:
- I can no longer search for anything across worksheets, only in the same sheet.
- Shortening the width of my columns and thus doubling up the height of some of my rows.
- The update would automatically change colors of some of my cells and thus destroyed my meaningful color coding system.

I believe the purpose of updates is to improve the functionality and usability of an app, not to regress it. The problems I listed before are functions lost since the v.2.0 update and have caused me tons of trouble and inconveniences.

Microsoft, don't use us as your beta tester for free. I am referring to the millions of users suffering from the same problems I am experiencing. I have deleted the app and reinstalled every update hoping to see a correction.

The size of the Excel app has decreased to 210 MB from 430. Is this the reason why some of its functions are now lost or removed intentionally?

[4/11/17] V.2.0 update caused these problems

- Bring up keyboard automatically when I tap on another tap/worksheet. Very inconvenient when I just want to browse through the taps of the same file like before.
- AutoSave cannot be disabled. When I tried to save after turning off the AutoSave button, it won't allow me to save the file with the same name. Meaning I can't manually update the same file. I don't want AutoSave because AutoSave interrupts my workflow, and quite often freezes the app so I would lose all edits.
- Changed width of column, thus increased height of rows.
- I can no longer adjust the width of a column at the top by a few alphabets like before.

[7/13/16] How I get around the v1.23 update's data entering problem

I found that I could find a row somewhere in the same worksheet, or in another worksheet of the same file, that would take new data entry without the keyboard suggestion list showing up.

Then I could type in my new contents into the cells, and copy and paste them into the row where I intended in the first place.

I decided to share this get around that I found when I saw many users were using Excel to track their daily medication intakes. I didn't know peoples' lives could be related to Excel.

MS, you should be ashamed of yourself!

[Review 7/12/16] The v1.23 Excel update yesterday contains a huge bug that has stopped me from using Excel until the next update.

What happens is that when you try to type any new content into a blank cell, the first letter or number you just type would bring up a list of items that start with the letter or number you type. But when you choose any of those, the cursor would drop to the cell right under and thus stopping you from entering anything new to your worksheet.

I have to update my worksheet several times a day for my business, and now I can no longer continue.

I actually worked with 6 Microsoft tech supports for more than 5 hours yesterday trying to solve this, but eventually they told me that they would report this for the developers to fix, but there is nothing they could do until the next update.

What a bump!!!

I regret having set my app updating to automatic, otherwise I might have avoided this disaster by finding this problem from AppStore reviews or other sources before updating my Excel app.

[Review 06/16] The size of the Excel app on my iPad Air 2 has inflated to 3.2GB (2.7GB in Documents & Data) again since my last reinstall on 5/21/16. And I had to delete and reinstall the app to bring it back to 439MB with 2.7MB in Documents & Data, just to recover about 2.7 GB of storage space for my iPad.

Then I loaded a 1.15MB file and saved it into OneDrive and Dropbox using replacing, not as a new file. This was also what I had been doing in the last 37 days - updating the same single file of 1.1MB and replacing/overwriting it several times a day.

I also just found the first single time I saved the file by replacing had increased the size in Documents & Data from 2.7MB to 16.4MB.

I am wondering if this is how it's supposed to be by design. If it is, it doesn't make any sense.

Please fix this asap. I hate to give Excel only 1 star to get some attention, but 2.7 GB each is a lot for the tens of millions of iDevices out there around the world. Microsoft should take this seriously.

[Last review]
Excel would pretend to save automatically in the middle of my work, but actually does not save anything.

What is worse is that when it save automatically, it actually deprive me of the chance to save my work because all the work I have done would disappear.

I have to redo all the work that is lost.

Fix this!!!

[Last review]

My Excel app size on my iPad Air 2 suddenly inflated to 3.2 GB, with Documents & Data size at 2.6 GB. When first installed, I believe it was only around 450 MB max, including the app size itself.

I don't save anything local, all go to cloud storage like Dropbox and OneDrive. Even with that, I would normally overwrite instead of saving as a new file. The 2 files I saved is only 1.1 MB each. So I can't think of any reason why there would be suddenly 2.5 GB more storage on my iPad occupied in just a few days.

Excel was just updated recently. That might be the cause.

I could not find any one at Microsoft to work to solve this problem. So I can only throw it out here to bring attention to them. Hopefully this will get noticed.

The only recourse now is to delete the app and reinstall it to bring it back to its initial 450 MB size, which I have done several times.

The recent update is bugful.

The Excel app would automatically save the current file I was working on and make the colors of all its cells disappear.

Having tried to recover from a previously saved backup file, I still lost several day's work because of this unexpected problem.
