    It’s slow buggy and many options don’t work. I would like a refund!
  • Something's fishy here…

    By Q G Long
    I downloaded this app while using Jack in the Box wifi. I try to create a new document, but the app doesn't want to let me *do* anything with it—"Unable to connect to server for Documents Editing. Please check that your Internet is active and your firewall is not blocking the connection." Try creating a spreadsheet as well as a text doc, same result. Well, JitB wifi *does* have a nanny filter on it, so maybe that's the problem. After returning to home, I try opening the Welcome.odt document. Success! Then I try opening one of the documents I allegedly created at JitB. I say "allegedly" cuz while the app does claim that they're *there*, it didn't want to allow me to work with them, so… it is a mystery. Anyway. Back at home, opening a document I created previously, and no joy; again, "unable to connect to server". Hmm. Tried opening the Welcome.odt doc again. Unlike the first time, which succeeded, *this* time I get the now-familiar "unable to connect to server" error instead of, you know, a document in a window. Not real sure what's up with this app, but as of now, I'm not at all pleased with it. Hopefully the developers are monitoring the reviews and can do something to make the thing work like I paid money for it to work. Later addendum: It appears that the app has a 1:2 to 1:4 chance of successfully opening any document, with that "unable to connect to server" error showing up any time the doc fails to open. Also: The app window has a sort of menubar in it. All very well and good (and Windows-like…), but the app window covers *all* the screen, including the iPad's native menubar (the top edge of the screen which show the battery status, time, etc). Which means that the window's menubar occupies much the same space as the iPad's menubar. This means that you have to be rather careful with your tapping of menus, lest your tap be absorbed by the iPad's menubar rather than activating the menu you were trying for. Slow response time for typing, tapping. Still highly unimpressed with this beast.
  • USELESS - Does not work with the iPad Pro 2018 and Smart Keyboard Folio!

    By jstodaro
    which is sad, as it used to work okay on my old iPads and iPhone. Well, hopefully the developers will make the necessary enhancements, but, until they do — I CAN’T TOTALLY GIVE UP MY WINDOWS 10 LAPTOP !!! :-(
  • Not good with Dropbox

    By Captseadog
    If you use Dropbox, find another app. I want my money back.
  • Just started

    Seems to be a good product a little slow with the typing but I am enjoying it
  • Best "Office Suite" ever for iPad!

    By Scot Perry
    More powerful and smooth than anything I've seen in 10 years of iPad use!! Was updated for new Dropbox compatibility in 2017 too. Thanks!!!
  • Dead Weight

    By GIVPilot
    Is not user friendly, very glitchy, takes forever for inputs to show up when editing. Basically just an emulator. Swipe to move through spread sheet is very slow and glitchy. How do I get my $5 back?
  • Cannot connect.

    By Danetherton
    I spent $5 for an app won’t connect to Dropbox? Or Google Docs? What a ripoff!
  • Great, but stops other music apps

    By Sword of Moses
    If I'm listening to Spotify and open Docs Unlimited, Spotify stops. It's as if Docs Unlimited thinks it is a music app and takes over the sound output on iOS, even though it is a document editor. Why does this happen, is there a way I can fix it from my end or is this a bug?
  • Dropbox Problem

    By Lou Laurent
    By the end of September, 2017, the current release of this software will not work. If the developers don't issue an update that fully supports Dropbox, users of this application will have to switch to something else. This application is worthless if it cannot access the new Dropbox requirements.
  • Stopped working

    By TX * Mouse
    Last update, no longer able to edit documents. Can not connect to server.
  • Works Well

    By Cmhorses
    So far I have found this to work well. Just acts "sticky" but getting use to using it along with iPad.
  • Love it!

    By NE FL Grammy
    I use this app almost everyday! Perfect!
  • Love it

    By Jr7newt
    I love this app. Easy to understand and use. There's never any question, whatever the file type, I just "open in", and I'm good to go.
  • Great if simply used

    By Bk RE Junkie
    I use the app for offline storage and retrieval of PDFs and word documents that have many images inside. Works great and the pictures are clear. I use it on a daily basis. Easy transfer of files.
  • It's a real slug.

    By Ggghjimmhgtj
    It's sluggish. Every time you move away from the app, you have to recover your spreadsheet. It's hard to select cells and hard to navigate. I had not used it for a long time and thought I would give it another try. I spent a couple of hours doing what would have taken about 10 minutes at a keyboard. At first, I thought it was just my learning curve but after spending all of this time, I now think it's just junk. I am going to delete it after I finish this review.
  • Very Handy but needs work

    By LorsieO
    Using this on my ipad is harder then it needs to be, the spreadsheet are a pain to hunt all the function that you need. It's to user friendly at all. Skip this one unless you like to undo and redo the last thing you just did.
  • Awful

    By Bc 111
    Terrible, don't waste your money.
  • Awesome

    By ryan8525
    Using this on a iPad Pro. Simple edits and corrections to mostly excel spreadsheets. I decided to buy even though the other comments are less than perfect. Keeping in mind this is a tablet not a full blown computer . I would recommend to my friends
  • S...L...O...W

    By Jurij m
    The delay on the Libre based program is really, really, delayed. Editing becomes too frustrating. I am deleting the app.
  • Wifi

    By Wordguy1000
    Very disappointed that you must be constantly connected to the internet in order to use this. I would like a simple word processing app that does not require internet access.
  • slow editing response

    By wlivingc
    this ap may be ok as a reader, however as a document creator and editor it is SLOW to respond to keystrokes, highlighting and any thing requiring use of keyboard. there are much better aps out there for less money and more power.
  • Once was GOOD (just good) and now

    By BooFud
    It is a worthless waste of storage space. My advise stay away like it was toxic waste!!!!'
  • Run Away

    By Spartan-AG
    If you've been using spread sheets like I have for 20 plus years and touch devices for the last decade, I strongly suggest you avoid this app. It has no like functionality of either. It behaves nothing like a spreadsheet and touch control is limited and inaccurate and horribly "laggy". You'd be better off holding a marker between your toes writing on grid paper while blind folded,
  • Does what I want

    By Wauchop
    Very handy when combined with Dropbox
  • Cannot edit Doc

    By Gin Elie
    Just got the iPad app to edit an important work pptx doc, but could not do so. App kept saying it could not connect to server. Could anyone help. Developer's site does not have a valid email for tech support. Thank you.
  • Unhappy customer

    By therealbrandonward
    App crashes too much to get anything done
  • Rating

    By Dr whyte
    The application is good only that it requires the need to be very familiar with the application because navigation can be a bit difficult for a first time user.
  • Docs Unlimited

    By BurpingMouse
    Can do anything, really? This thing can just open docs and allow minor modifications; no drop-downs menus, fields, open to other apps in native form etc... Crap ... do not promise if you cannot deliver.

    By KCmystic
    That was a COMPLETE WASTE of $5.00!!! Extremely slow and simple formulas didn't transfer over.
  • Worthless

    By Suominen500
    I was led to this by ipad when I was trying to open a vimeo. This is a totally confusing app and did not work. I deleted it immediately. Waste of money!
  • Not Perfect- BUT!

    By Abester@654
    I know this app. might not work for everyone, however when you can't get a odt. or some other non Microsoft doc ext. to even open this app works wonders. I don't think it's a bad app, it just may not be the right app for some. Keep in mind there is no perfect app- That's Why There Are So Many!
  • Awkward

    By BKhere
    Spreadsheet is very slow to respond to taps. Very difficult to drag, or even to know if you are on the drag handle. Hard to click on proper cell as it tends to select the neighbor cells. Pitiful compared to the old and not available QuickOffice. Docs are all over the place. Sad.

    Very satisfied good application
  • Don't waste your money!

    By ????00????
    Good splash to get your attention, but! Program keeps crashing. Alignment doesn't work. No bold. Selecting text does not work properly. I want my money back. No wonder it was on sale!
  • T o o . . . S l o o o o o w

    By RacerXLIX
    I wanted to like this app, I really did -- but as other reviewers have said, it's very laggy. I have a loaded iPad Air so I thought maybe it would work OK, but no. This app is unusably slow even on shorter documents -- forget trying to work on longer documents (greater than 10 pages). You tap, then wait. Tap, then wait. Get frustrated and tap several times. The app crashes. To add insult to injury, the look and feel of the word processor (I assume the other tools are similar) is circa 1998. If the program worked worth a darn, I could overlook the dated UI, but it doesn't so I deleted it from my iPad.
  • Una aplicacion hermosa

    By Luis applefan
    Pese a que los comandos del cursos son un poco lentos me impresiono el parecido a excel y word una perfecta herramienta de ofimatica con muchos estilos de letra , Aperfect Tool for students for research the only I desagree is some comands, but for working beautiful app I recomend this tool awsome
  • Beware, VERY slow movement and keyboard function

    By Nacho de Leon
    The speed with which you can move around on the document and the lag in the keyboard makes this app virtually useless.
  • Review

  • So Far - So Good

    By ProV1xcess
    The app seems to work pretty good so far. There have been a few glitches here and there, especially in the spreadsheet. Maybe it just takes a little getting used to.
  • Docs Unlimited

    By Was a Novice
    Excellent software. After being burned by an oversold alternative, this package is a refreshing overachiever.
  • Crashes

    By Greg21040
    Unable to speak to type and constantly crashes. Also, really slow. Crap app!
  • Changes sentences.

    By Forgiven (2)
    This app does not receive a document in the same format I enter it. It often breaks up my sentences placing words on another line when there is space on the previous line.
  • Works well

    By julaw15
    I like the app but when I want to delete a document the app shuts down on me, every time. Once reopened, the document has been deleted but this process of it shutting down and then needing to be reopened is annoying and time consuming. Please fix this issue!!
  • Great

    By carrieaz
    Great option for use on an IPad
  • Why is it 17+??

    By AddisonHudelson
    I love it but it shouldn't be 17+ because of the Internet browser!
  • Bad

    By Esteban Sequeira
    Muy mala, no se pueden borrar archivos al mismo tiempo... A la hora de exportar a pdf es malísima. Es preferible Usar un transportador de documentos...
  • Useless

    By Littlestellaxoxo
    I purchased this app to edit pdf and word documents and as far as I can tell it simply does not work. I cant get it to edit anything, it scrambles my pdf docs, and the interface looks like a 15 year old version of word. Slow and useless. It must work for some people because it gets so many 5 star reviews (the reason I bought it), however it has been completely useless for me-- I have a brand new ipad air2 and it simply does not seem to work on it. Don't waste your money. Pages is more useful than this app.
  • Compatible & handy BUT

    By PoeticGladPedestrian
    The app works great with Office apps, but please fix the issue of not being able to password protect documents.
