  • A small add-on?

    By Toebear136
    Real quick, in mobile view on iPhone specifically can you add an indent button? It’s obvious to my readers when I work from my phone before editing on my iPad. Otherwise, amazing app, great concept
  • It is great

    By vsmgpaa
    The word app is amazing and works just like on a computer.
  • Get with it

    By mmborabora
    I just downloaded another app that was 228GB in seconds and not using WiFi. Why are you requiring I be on WiFi to download your update? Makes no sense
  • Lost all my Emoji’s

    By Unihibbited
    Whatever so called bug fix I lost all my emojis in my documents that I spent a year setting up!
  • Keyboard lag

    By theolson
    K---- Keyb--oard... l---ag. That is all.
  • Apple Pencil Bug

    By Apple Pencil Bug
    Most of the app is good but it is very frustrating that when you write with the apple pencil the words shift and dont stay where you write this. I have seen others complain about this issue but have not seen any way to fix it.

    Word save me.
  • Very Limited App w/o subscription

    By skulivan
    First, love Microsoft products! I own 3 licenses to MSOffice (2013-2016) on 3 different computers. However, the Office Apps are a bit disappointing without a subscription to Office365! You can’t create, can’t save, can’t edit documents. Also cannot print to file, save as PDF etc. So basically, using office doc/spreadsheet editors on my iPad to ‘view’ already created doc’s, is useless (without paying a subscription cost, which is another monthly payment outside of even owning your own copies of previous versions of these products). Too bad Microsoft doesn’t give flexibility in these/this area. Seems all conglomerates are ‘all about the money!’
  • Fonts are missing :o(

    By smbuchert
    All fonts are not showing up after this most recent update. Please fix ASAP
  • Fonts Are Missing

    By Slilock
    After the most recent update (1/14/19), the drop down list of fonts are missing now. Please fix!
  • Emojis Broken

    By tuleangel
    After todays update the emojis no longer show in the documents. They’re black and white and ugly! Please fix so they’re in color again
  • Glitches

    By dfuyewguyecwy
    Way too many glitches
  • Amazing!!

    By kidmekid
    I love it, it works amazing. I just wish that all users could use draw without having an updated computer. I use this everyday for my school and LOVE it, if you are debating between Apache Open Office and Office 365, Office 365 is going to be the best and most usable option. It is simple, but advanced in the best ways. Thank you to all of you guys who made this!
  • Thank you

    By DBTRuthie3
    I must say this is my favorite way for me to document things.
  • Needs work, but OK

    By Randall King
    Why, every time Microsoft Office apps are updated, is the download 200-300 MB? Has Microsoft not heard of delta updates? Otherwise, good app!
  • ALWAYS needing wifi for updates?!

    By MacToirneach
    After my previous phone’s screen was broken, I had to get it replaced. Fortunately the old phone was still semi-functional, so I could back it up in iCloud. But then I get the replacement, and find that Word didn’t seem to update fast even while I was connected with a wifi. I’m guessing that might have been simply because it was the whole entire app while it was also trying to recover everything else like my pictures and music, etc. It still took a whole week and a half. THEN, I find out the original file of a novel that I was writing for almost four years wasn’t in iCloud. I have to reconstruct it piece by piece from the online book hosting website instead!!!! I still HAVE to use Word though, because my editor doesn’t accept some online hosted book, they need an emailed file when I’ve finished enough. This is one massive headache!!!!
  • Awful

    By jjy0160
    Lots of lags ad crashes
  • You Stupid Jackasses

    By TiffanySmith
    This is just word, all you have to do is creat a documentary of sorts, but there are so many bugs and glitches, WHY! It’s just work!
  • Excellent App

    By Daemon144
    I’ve tried several different word processors for the ipad and Word remains the best. The only caveat is that there are features on the laptop version that are missing and I wish would have been included.
  • Very expensive for what you get

    By wls1000
    No way to go from open to the bottom of your writing without have to full scroll through every page
  • Terrific

    By T. B. F. 2000
    Great app. A must have for the iPad
  • Reference tab

    By bhbmjnn
    Reference options in app please.
  • Doesn’t Email Documents!

    By !;!?7!-)@
    This app will not send important documents to your email. Why have the option to email if it doesn’t even work?
  • Amazing!!!

    By JagoneM&M
    Every time I log on it works I get everything done and I do essays in an hour!!!!!”
  • Update was a downgrade

    By ExcessiveReader
    My automatic update has made the comments on a document a downgrade. In comments it used to let me use the toolbar to do italic/underline/bold. Now my comments have no options AND it’s now in pop up bubbles instead of showing in the side of the document, which clearly connected the comment to the selected area. I’m very disappointed in the update that’s a big downgrade
  • Document portability

    By terrencemw

  • Annoyed

    By gettingmoreannoyedbytheminute
    I am rating it lower than I would because of this annoying constant request to give a review.
  • Word

    By jtzeigler
  • Great app

    By RBost
    It is very helpful to be able to compile a document on my laptop and be able to edit it on my iPad when away from home.

    By Jerbeo
    I use it on my iPad Pro and I don’t even need a computer for coursework. It’s excellent!
  • Envelope merge

    Would be nice to have this function.
  • Stop requesting

    By TenaciousDalton
    Stop requesting a review
  • Great app but need an update

    By mobile tech pro

  • Verification Bugs makes this IMPOSSIBLE to use!!

    By Tim Lim
    I’m a huge advocate for Microsoft Office. I think the programs are amazing and powerful, and definitely my preferred software for word processing and data entry. However the mobile version of Microsoft Word has been IMPOSSIBLE! Every time I try to use it, it says my account needs to be verified, and when I verify, the emails with codes don’t get sent, so I have to wait lengthy periods of time, and if or when I get those codes, my account gets suspended! I’m currently taking a class, and want to take notes via Word, but constantly I have to use other word processing programs because I CANT SIGN IN!!!! How is this something that hasn’t been fixed or hasn’t been addressed? It’s something that happens ALL the time, and I can’t reliably use Microsoft Office at all! If this isn’t fixed, I’ll have to start using other programs that are actually reliable. Again, I love the program itself, but because of this weird verification business, it has prevented me from reliably using this program on my iPad. Please address this, or you will lose many people who like to use this program.
  • Awesome Program

    By study18
    This is the best program for I can use it anywhere anytime and I do just that so Happy New Year from a Soldier for Life and God Bless you all
  • Works fine, just missing good tools from regular word

    By Kat G. 927
    The word app doesn’t have a save as tool, which makes moving documents and changing file type more tedious. It also doesn’t have functions like focus view. I love using focus view on a desktop because it zeros in on your work without the distractions of the tool bar (granted, not everyone feels this is important). Over all, the app works fine, I just miss all the functions of the desktop version.
  • Love your app, but it has problems.

    By Renesmee Prime
    Your app refuses to stop greeting me as it pops up in a small bubble below each app I use. It has to stop now. I really think you are trying to get me in trouble because that’s what it looks like to me. I’ll keep going with this until this gets fixed, you can count on it!
  • Constant login

    By DGryder
    Word has really been improved for the iPad. I can almost do anything I would do with my Mac. The big downside is that I am constantly being asked to login over and over. The app should remember that you own the product for the device. It would also be better if you could print envelopes like you can from Pages.
  • Satisfied.

    By blehch
    I enjoy using the app. It’s not clunky or irritating when I’m writing, and it doesn’t feel like the menus are in the way. My ONE bad point is that occasionally, I’ll find something I pinned at the top to be mysteriously unpinned. It’s irritating, lightly and faintly, and I hope to see it patched in the future.
  • Dictation crash

    By In4o
    I have loved Microsoft Word for about 20 years now. When it came out on iOS I was ecstatic since I barely have time to do any homework at home on my desktop. Just as I am dictating this review, I tend to dictate most written papers as well. In the latest update, every time You attempt to dictate, instead of actually type a paper, word crashes, whether it be on iPad or iPhone. Please fix this feature!!! This used to make my life so much easier now I have to resort to using an actual keyboard on my desktop to get stuff done rapidly.
  • Love it!

    By NightBeau
    It’s very convenient and I love how all of my work saves online. I can look up my work anywhere.
  • Paint icon

    By jaime garza Jr.
    Just curious where is that paint icon? Been searching for a while Just curious Still with this question
  • It is an okay app

    By mother goose response
    I think this app is great for writing,despite the fact that I can’t connect this thing with my desktop.I would love it if I could write on here then it would show up on there,but it doesn’t do that and it kind of just REALLY bugs me. Everything else seems okay. That said, this is a good way for me to write and save things.

  • Bizarre Frustrating Bug in Current Version of this Software

    By Huge bug.
    When you try to select something (e.g. a word to delete it or to start to select an entire sentence or two starting at that work) it shows the word is selected (blue highlight), but it is (for some reason) locked down so that you can’t do anything (can’t handle bars to drag). You then have to touch somewhere else to reset, and touch that word again in order for actions to be possible. Very frustrating bug.
  • Steps backwards

    By sooks2
    Come on Microsoft. While the functionality here is overall good, there are some serious flaws. 1) Random reauthentication: this always happens while I am on a plane our outside of connectivity. Half the functionality is disabled until I log on. But I’m on a plane. Really?? How many umpteen times do I need to prove that I’m paying hundreds of dollars per year to rent this app? 2) emailing files takes five steps steps. I know you want to sell outlook. But why do I have to hit share, then email, then choose an app other than Microsoft Outlook, then choose email. Really? I know you want to sell onedrive and outlook, but that’s a choice I don’t want to have to (not) make every time I need to email a file. Etc... These inconveniences take away from what is otherwise a good port of a vital application.
