Some bugs never get fixed

Erba999

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.

The buggy Word we're stuck with

Brian Dilg

The Microsoft Word format is de rigueur since Microsoft managed to put its competitors out of business many years ago. Since then, we're stuck with the file format, although other word processing apps provide less bloated alternatives and the ability to export to .docx in the end.

That said, if you choose to use the Word app on iOS, you're going to find that while it's functional, there are basic, obvious bugs that just never seem to get fixed. A maddening one is the magic scrolling demon: like most professional writers with reams of text to input, I use a physical keyboard (on an iPadPro). Try selecting a few words of text using the standard keyboard shortcuts: Cmd-Shift-arrow or Option-Shift-arrow. Voila! Your document magically scrolls to some random position, and you can no longer see the very text you have just selected. Have fun with that.

For this one bug alone, not to mention many others that never go away and the glaring inability to format or modify styles within the iOS app, I have turned to alternative applications whenever possible.

Great for collaborating across devices

Leo Steveyeo

I have devices I use at home, at work, and volunteer places where I do not necessarily own all devices. I usually use a USB drive but, remembering where I keep that small USB drive is much burdensome. Many times, I could not locate my USB drive. Using OneDrive and having 5 users access is a convenience, the price, over $100 a year is a little high, thou. I litterally have access to more than 5 devices.

Now, when my Phone becomes more than a phone, I really like to see Word to be more easy to edit text using iPhone. I tried editing text on a document using my iPhone, I was able to edit it. However, when I open it on a PC, the line that I typed in using my iPhone has a different format than other text in the same document. Selecting text, and editing tables or that with shapes are not very much easy on iPhone which might have a lot to do with iPhone structure. But, I really want to see improvement on this area which Microsoft could possibly eliminate barriers and add more user friendly features for Word on iPhone.
