Customer Reviews

Excellent, but marred by activation and UX issues

I've been using Word and the rest of the Office app suite since initial release, and on my iPad Pro with a keyboard, they largely work great and look great. I love the ability to edit from iPad, iPhone and desktop, and sync it all easily via OneDrive and my Office 365 subscription.

The problem is, Word and the rest of the Office apps have an interface that's almost too Spartan. It's often difficult to discover how to do certain things, or even understand if it's possible to do them from the app (vs. having to load a document on the desktop).

But worse still is how painful the activation experience is. I am constantly having to activate the apps against my Office 365 subscription, since the apps — Word, Excel and OneNote being the ones I use most often — spontaneously and randomly forget the activation multiple times each week. Usually, it's at the worst possible time (when I have no or limited Internet access). Surely the app can check to see when my subscription renews, and STAY ACTIVATED until that date without pestering me constantly? Apparently not. This really needs attention and improvement.

Keeps getting better

I wish there was a way of scoring this app with a 4.75. A rating of 5 stars means there is no room for improvement...and there always is.

I use Office 2016 on my laptop and Office on my iPhone and iPad. I must say, just the ability to bounce back and forth with OneDrive is a miracle in itself.

While I realize there's a limit to what can be done using an iPad, I look forward to better font capabilities in the future. I'd love easier ways to embed and display fonts...set on the desktop...on my iPad.

PDF - I realize there are ways to convert a Word docx to PDF on the iPad now. However, I'd LOVE to duplicate the desktop functionality of performing a "save as" to create a corresponding PDF. I simply love this feature in the desktop version of Office. It's even better than printing to a PDF and Microsofts version of a PDF is clean, dependable and fast. No 3rd party watermarks, hidden metadata, etc., and things like hyperlinks perform correctly and look as intended.

Keep getting Microsoft. I remain a fan!

For an iPad app it's great

Update- still no cursor the semi-recent improvements to the tool bar are a welcome addition.

This works like I need it to on the iPad. I use it in conjunction with One Drive and or Drop Box and it works. Some comments about recent docs not updating across computers seem to be correct, but that's no big deal. Go to the doc source and load it, next.
I never expect local docs to update correctly and I'll give iTunes the finger for being a PIA for that issue. Give us access to the file structure and those kinds of complaints will stop.
Sorry, this is a discussion about Word. It works, it edits and sometimes it's way too easy to out run it typing on an iPad but it works, it edits, it saves. I'm good with it.
One more iOS nag...give us a keyboard we can move the cursor with if you ever want people to take this thing seriously for productivity. As it is this is a first class scratch pad.
