  • Horrible

    By LosOshow
    As many have said before it is unusably slow and even if you do get it to work it’s interface doesn’t connect with anything very well at all. Very disappointing that apple allows this in their App Store.
  • Completely Useless

    By Ubergeek72
    Typing response is unusably slow with an external keyboard. Also Dropbox complains that they’re using an API which is deprecated, and I was unable to make Dropbox access work at all. One star for a good idea (and because I can’t give it zero) but -4 stars for not being useable.
  • Waste of money

    By Alooshashoosh
    Even the typing response is too slow, the whole app reminds me of 90s but in a very unpleasant way,

  • Won't do envelopes, hangs up all the time,

    By Leading Chief
    When I tryto do envelopes, it won't print on the printer. The printer constantly reports wrong page size reported. And then the documents often just hang up and won't respond to the pressure on the screen, I have to close the application and reopen it in order to regain control - for a few minutes. It is slow to respond to entries, but I could live with that. I can't live with the way it constantly locks up, and won't print the proper page size for envelopes. And the help file says to make menu selections that don't exist What a waste of four bucks.

    This app is useless! Doesn't work the way it was described. I wish I wouldn't have spent the money on it....wish I could get my money back.
  • Good app

    By I<3Patinkin
    This is a good app for getting my book written on the road. There were some weird issues with saving and it syncing with my keyboard. But other then that I have enjoyed using it.
  • Good App

    By Annie
    Seems to work fine for what I need right now.
  • Good Word Processor for on the go

    By Cimee
    I have been using this app for a couple of years now. Mostly for quick invoices and the like. Fits most all the needs I require. There are a couple of small quirks I could see improvement on tho. The selection of a single word for example could be more user friendly. But it's certainly not a deal breaker. I would recommend it to others for some quick word processing. Face it, if you need more than what this has to offer, you should be on a full size system.
  • Good App

    By Buddha1229
    This is a very simple word processor but really needed when you use an IPad all the time. I just downloaded it for my second IPad.
  • Works well

    By Greatninaof3
    The app took a little getting used to, but once I got the hang of it, it has worked great for my needs.
  • Ehhhh

    By Zumzumfoxy
    This particular app is slow, and not very user friendly in terms of interface despite the comfort in its similarity. I dislike especially that I cannot use more fonts in my iOS than what the app comes with- especially because I need a wordprocessing program where I can test the fonts I design on the fly. Very disappointed and looking for a refund.
  • Save your money

    Don't what Mitch is suppose to do. Junk
  • Not good

    By Arm 19
    Very slow and buggy.. Don't waste your time and money.
  • Supid!

    By Gocardsalia1
    This is just a waste of money it's to slow and it won't let me type anything don't buy this app
  • Ok for 4 dollars

    By Fred Leicht
    Ok as far as writing tools go it is not bad. I would like to see being able to switch back and forth between web and the document. Other than that no real complaints.
  • Open in Word

    By Suelaj
    Great app to have on mobile device to open or revise Word documents. Easy to use!
  • Poor app

    By Geo458
    Waste of money. Might as well have burned that $4.00.
  • Poor performance

    By Leemclaugh
    This app is unuseably slow and non Responsive! I want a refund!
  • Read the requirements... No offline use

    By The dude 97
    Active internet connection required. It will not work without it... Period. At work... Our firewall makes it slow to respond. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is the great communication I got from the developer. Wasted money for my needs.
  • un usable

    By staxripa
    un useable trash. lags badly.
  • Scam, Don't waist your money, buy pages

    By Sammie Gorvaniee
    This app is terrible. To do anything like editing it prompt you to buy a more useless app Docs unlimited. Then using docs unlimited also prompt you to another app. The developer is a first class scam artist according to his marketing of these useless apps. The docs limited does not support word or pages it does support some kind of poor quality JPEG. Headache after headache. Want my money back.
  • Not worth the money

    By Rampage1980
    It's very slow, confusing, the taps are sucking, and when pushing a button it press something completely different what I choice to. Not recommended. Waste of money.
  • False advertizing

    By I did not buy this!
    You need to spend another $5 a month forever, if you want to make this app work even if you already own your own copy of WORD.
  • It doesn't work

    By cauckland
    It's not intuitive and there are no directions. I tried for 10 minutes to create a document but it wouldn't allow me to. A waste!
  • Review

    By Betira
    So far it meets my needs. It is very handy.
  • Nice app

    By Mr_ddr
    I use this app when my laptop is being used. I can email the documents to myself.
  • Don't waste your time

    By Professional Atlanta Woman
    I just bought this app since I am stuck in an airport with only my iPad and need to edit a document. I just spent 2 hours on this document, and then the program just closed without saving any changes!!! I will be demanding a refund and disputing the charge on my credit card!!
  • favorite app

    By Hhdhhhdhd
    i love this app! it is very easy to use and i have no problems other than sometimes it is a little slow but i still love it.
  • Educator

    By DoNotLikeThis
    I downloaded this app and it has never worked. It just sits there in my updates with no button to update, install, etc. I have emailed the developers and have gotten no reply. It is very frustrating to have it hanging around and not accessible anywhere on my iPad. By the way, I tried "FrustratedUser" as my nickname and was told it had already been taken. Does any one know how to delete this dead app from an iPad?
  • Worst app I've ever purchased

    By balto70
    This app was a complete waste. Half the time, I can't get the keyboard to work to start typing This app is so slow that when you type something or select something, there's a noticeable delay before you see it on screen. No instructions to speak of. Absolute joke of an app. This is coming from someone who rarely gives a bad review.
  • Good App

    By CeeCee009
    This has worked well for my needs so far. It is a little slow, sometimes the screen will go white as it refreshes for no apparent reason and I have to wait for my document to reappear to finish working. The tasks and tool bar are similar to MS Word. It did take me a little while to figure out how to highlight text to modify it or copy. For the benefit of others: you select the mouse from the upper right icons and position it next to desired text to be highlighted then double tap, that will highlight the first word. Then position mouse over blinking cursor and click and drag to where you want highlighting to stop. Trick is to press hard on the screen for the drag or it will not work. (maybe that was a quirk of my iPad but maybe not.) Overall, it gets the job done, even if a little slowly.
  • Open Word Processor

    By Nonipops
    This app is sufficient for what I need. It would work better if I used a keyboard. It is pretty slow BC I don't. But like I said, sufficient.
  • Slow, only had it for 3 days and am deleting it.

    By S. F. H. C.
    Too slow it is frustrating
  • Wasted my money

    By LuckyKid2596
    I use forms that are created in word 2010 for construction field reports. Every time I import a file for editing, the text format gets re-arranged and portions of the form disappear. I am very frustrated with the app.
  • Decent little worker

    By Bruce1975author
    This is a decent little application. I've written documents for work using it and sent them off to the company secretary. It formats great, and does things in open office or in MS Word. The only issue I have with it is the necessary internet connection.
  • Not bad, minor issues only

    By The draftsman
    I haven't been able to find any useful, pre-generated formats for stuff but it does work fairly well as a generic word processor so far.
  • Buggy and SLOW

    By ALA6886
    This app seems like a literal windows port to the iPad. It requires you shift modes to click or to type (pain in the butt) and it has the graphic quality of a Windows XP screen capture. Worst of all, it's incredibly slow even on the most powerful to-date iPad, and when it synced it deleted everything I wrote. I just lost some of the most interesting writing I have ever done in my life and lost 99¢ to this piece of crap. I'm beginning to think the rave reviews were written by the developers to get as many dollar purchases as they could before word got out.
  • The most feature rich Word Processor for iPad

    By vho3000
    The most powerful word processor for iPad, response may be slow and sometimes clashes.
  • Apple

    This game is helpful but every time I type it's so slow.I would not prefer this game. Every time I exited out of this game it erases all the things I wrote!!!! Not good writing. boo!boo!boo! Hate this app!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • great functionality!

    By pturning
    I came from being used to the desktop office interface, so this app's ui is very natural for me. I was a bit skeptical at first but amazing it really works and has almost all the functionality of a full desktop word processor! The image upload feature added with this new version really helps with my work.
  • no nonsense app

    By jkowlski
    i wanted an app to work with office documents, especially openoffice docs since that is what my company uses. Most apps only support doc and docx files but this one actually supports odt as well. Now I am able to edit my contract templates and email them as PDFs to my clients on the road with my 4g ipad!!! Update: Wow, this version now supports image upload, amazing! I can now insert pictures I take with my iPad directly into the document. Thanks!
  • Best word editor so far

    By otatoy
    Good integration with Dropbox. Took a little getting used to since there are a lot of features. But once you learn it, it does the job well. at least it gives me spell check which other app does not have. I like its support for Open Office word documents in addition to supporting my docx files. Thanks for adding image upload functionality.
  • Good integration with Dropbox

    By jennyheit
    Great app. Great price. Great features. Integrates great with google docs and dropbox. I have documents in both Dropbox and Google Docs. I like the Dropbox integration much better as the editing of the document is pretty seamless. However, you can improve your Google Docs integration better by making the editing process more seamless. Had a Word question and developers were responsive as well.
  • Edits both Microsoft and open office docs

    By martiantrain
    Been using it for months now. This app rocks. Powerful but takes a little getting used to with it many functionalities and features. It edits my Microsoft word documents. What I really needed was an app that could also open Open Office documents as I receive in this format from some of my classmates. This app does it all when other apps could not. Worth the price. It does have a lot of features though and does take some getting used to and learning. Update - Developers finally added insert image function to my document.

    To much lagggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg
  • Useful!

    By Lw6
    This useful app is worth the money. I am able to open, edit and email docs easily. When I first purchased it, I had trouble emailing out edited docs, I contacted support and they gave some suggestions to fix they prob. It was a problem wih my email app not with this word app. I was able to get the issue resolved and can use the app with ease. Thanks for a great app!
  • Slow and Glitchy

    By Hoochi Mama Shocka Zulo
    I am very disappointed. Interface is very nice and familiar but the action on it is very slow and glitchy for my iPad 4. I only paid $3.99 reduced from $9.99 but still not worth it. I want my money back. Don't waste your time or your money.
  • Needs some corrections

    By Munchenerin
    I find it difficult to navigate to a specific locations on a page...the movement is really jerky. Also some of the task bar gets obscured in if you want to underline a word or type it in a different color than the rest of the text. I do use the program quite often, however, and am reasonably pleased with it. It's OK, but it sure could be better. Then after submitting the above, the app really bombed out. Suddenly all app instructions are in French, though that has NEVER been selected as my language of choice. It is now worthless for me and I had a LOT of data entered. BUMMER!
