Ratings and Reviews
Some bugs never get fixed
Recently, which is to say the past few months, certain bugs have appeared across all my iOS devices. For example, even though I have turned off automatic corrections, or even Word's own spell checking, it stubbornly insists in "correcting" certain words: It turns nearly all i's into capital I's, whether or not they are at a beginning of a sentence. If you write "it is" for example, you find that it does not like that, and turns it to "It Is." It looks much more better. A word like "always" is made to hiss at the end, and "corrected" to alwayss". I assume it finds this more pleasing to the eye as well as to the ear because it adds an extra "s" to many more words ending with a single one. It also does not like the normal spelling of "which" and converts it to "whichh". There are many other examples, which I am not going to enumerate in detail. But I have the same problem both on iphone and ipad. It has made it terribly annoying to write anything using them now. I don't see these issues addressed anywhere, and asking in forums will only get responses suggesting you do this thing or that thing, all of which I have already done. It seems no one has a clue what it going on. So, I'll leave this three-star review here until someone figures out a way to fix this.
Write great copy from your tablet, simply by speaking!
I am sitting here on my couch, looking out the window on a beautiful summer afternoon. I am speaking these words into my tablet. I’m not even typing! This is the most fun I’ve ever had, ok well, maybe not ‘ever’. I have downloaded the Microsoft Word app, and have signed into my account. Since I have an arm injury it’s been difficult for me to type. Going on like this though, I can really get into storytelling mode. I think I could write really fast like this. Maybe I could even write a book in a short time. To be honest, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to do this. So I took it for test drive, and it worked! You deserve the unlimited freedom of this technology that can set you free too. No more writers block. No more tired fingers. No more arm cramps. The creative juices are flowing so fast I can’t even hold them back! I just want to share this with the world! I want you to have this freedom too!
All you’ll need to get started is to download the Microsoft Word app on your tablet and sign in to your Microsoft account.
Great, but has a few glaring and stupid issues
I love most things about this app, like that it formats smartly (most of the time) and coordinates with other Office apps well, and is generally very easy to use.
However, I have seen so far two glaringly stupid issues with it that aren’t even hard to fix. One, I can’t draw a straight line. What the heck is the point of a line function if I can’t make a straight line? Please make this feature actually useful. Two, in a recent update some rocket scientist thought it’d be great to make the page scroll itself back up to the top every time you were idle for more than a few seconds. Spoiler alert: I don’t want my POV to be moved off of where I’m working. Duh.
Maybe I sound a little harsh, but I feel no remorse telling someone their idea is stupid if it’s really this stupid, and it is. Three seconds of thought could tell someone that these changes were a bad idea, but they happened anyway. Please un-happen them so I can work effectively using what’s otherwise a nearly perfect word processor.
