Does not work

This app won't let me add my account. After I sign it keeps looping back through the sign in page. 👎
Cripple functionality
jangly on 6/12/2017
I would probably be more forgiving of an adwords app that didn't have the full functionality if the full website worked on an iPad, but instead it crashes in Safari and in Google's own Chrome app, making productivity on the iPad a non-starter. Google either needs to flesh out this app or fix the adwords site.
$18 per customer call. Abomination.
Aoco56 on 6/6/2017
Would you like to pay $18 for every potential customer who calls? Neither do any quality local businesses. Use Yelp, BBB, Houzz, Nextdoor Neighbor, or any other business platform that doesn't operate on extortion.

Here is an easy way to manage and run your business, Google to the rescue, I love this app, give it a try 🐾😎
Can't even create a new ad.

Useless to me.
Awesome
Crazy pro gamer on 5/30/2017
Best for youtube
Worthless. Can't do anything with it.
Dentite on 5/27/2017
Only useful for viewing your ads and spend. Can't do a thing that's actually useful. No editing at all of anything.
What is the point if I can't manage my ads!
AwEsOmE_sAuCe!!!!!! on 5/23/2017
What is the point of having this if I can't manage my ads, like creat new ads for example! Same problem with Google my business app it's USELESS! Because I can't post from it.
Ad scheduling
Cmpgg on 5/18/2017
I got a glimpse of the Android version of this app and the functionality includes nearly everything available on desktop. Being unable to bulk edit or adjust ad scheduling makes this pointless for management on the go. Helpful only to see where spend is for the day.
I love it

Easy interface
Inaccurate and outdated info - typical of Google
NYCJames on 5/5/2017
Having checked my AdWords campaign on my phone for the first time this morning, I was reminded of the fact that there was an AdWords app. So I figured I'd give it a try. The mobile browser page had told me that I'd received 4 clicks so far today, but upon loading the app was told that I'd had 1 click for the same time period. So what exactly is the point of using the app if it doesn't even give me a current set of data? This kind of inaccuracy and inconsistency is so typical of Google. Basically no point having this app.
Cannot sign in
Stupid iOS nickname on 4/10/2017
After password and google Authenticator the apps goes back to log in screen.
Good for monitoring. Would be more useful if it could edit.
Christofer Williams on 3/21/2017
It's nice to be able to monitor campaigns, but that's all this app lets you do. I don't expect full desktop functionality from an app, but it would be helpful if I could add/adjust keywords and ads in response to data while on the go.
Dumbest app ever!!!
Wisest critic guy on 3/20/2017
It wont even let me log in. Instead it tries to send me to express so I can't control the amount per click sounds fishy to me
Can't log in
Wil V on 3/11/2017
I will write a new review when I can log in.
Broken
Lord Malthus on 3/7/2017
Can't log in at all. App completely functionless. Waste of time.
Beware!
Small biz7542 on 3/7/2017
Google makes millions selling worthless 3rd world bot traffic to American small businesses. Beware!
Great for updates
Petey77777 on 3/6/2017
Obviously not as powerful as using Adwords on the desktop, but this is great to get quick updates.
Can't even log in
Ryan6792947 on 2/23/2017
This is very annoying. I've been trying to login for two days. Please fix this!
Won't let me sign in
...priya on 2/22/2017
Please fix this!!! The app won't even let me sign in. Super frustrating
Missing Features & Plagued w/ Fake Clicks
WhY_Se7eN on 1/24/2017
Can't add negative keywords, IP address, edit ads or extensions, and a lot more stuff. Also, AdWords is plagued with false clicks that google charges your account with. Call for support and you won't get much help. Disappointed with the customer service and support.
Fast and easy to use.
Kelsterdude Account on 10/13/2016
Makes watching my campaigns simple.
Very dissatisfied/NOT user friendly
Hustonharr on 9/7/2016
A few months ago I signed up for Google Adwords. I put $50 into my account in order to see if it was worth putting serious money into it. After 2 months I had 0 clicks on the Adwords app. At this point in time I reached out to a Google partnered Internet advertising agency to help promote my website. Whenever my website got to the first page of Google I went to deactivate my Adwords account because I didn't want to get billed for all the clicks my advertising agency was sending to me. However whenever I got onto the Adwords app it showed I still had 0 clicks. ( even though I was on the front page of Google) So I assumed that the Google partnered advertising agency had worked with Adwords to make it where I wasn't getting billed twice (that makes too much sense it seems). After checking my bank account I have been getting charged by Adwords for every click my advertising agency has sent my way, even though my Adwords app still says I have 0 clicks. So I called the customer service for Adwords and explained my story that I've been paying twice for each click and I feel like I should be given a refund since the app still says 0. The rep then told me that I have Adwords express, not Adwords. I assumed like most that they were the same app and the same thing! I'm not tech savvy like all the Google people! I was under the impression that only the money you put into the account could be touched by Google and that was it. No one told me it was a monthly occurrence or I wouldn't have messed with it. I am very dissatisfied with Google for over complicating a seemingly simple process. I've never experienced hidden fees but I guess this comes close. I wouldn't recommend Google Adwords to anyone. There are so many better alternatives. They definitely misled me and I am not happy. I would give zero stars if I could. Thanks
Great, but missing SQR functionality
Stan - SEM Professional on 9/2/2016
Great app that offers what you need for on the go insights and reporting. Wish it let you go through Search Query Reporting and add negatives and keyword additions. *Wish list item that would take this app to the next level*
No search functionality
Chickennuggetbagel on 8/29/2016
An app by the world's top search engine doesn't have a search function. Truly unbelievable considering AdWords is Google's lifeblood. One would think this app is geared toward the type of user with an MCC containing a number of accounts, so the lack of an ability to search for an account is inexcusable.
Fantastic Tool for SEM on the Go
Jmargar2! on 6/11/2016
I really love this app. It provides clear overviews of accounts, from campaigns to keywords; however, there's room for improvement. I would love some more filter options, especially a target network filter! I'm hoping the developers are looking to improve the user experience, which is already very good.
Simple navigation and elegant charting
Yeedor on 6/10/2016
I really like the core functionality of the app - really simple, fast, and easy to browse through my campaigns.
Better than web version
Yababoon on 6/9/2016
And much simplier, for a quick peak. Well done.
Great For quick account review on the go
Bullison on 5/22/2016
Finally! But i have manual payment it will be 5 stars when i have this option to recharge campaigns as doing it on mobile browsers its hard enough Use desktop for general management
Awful app, typical google
Hello I'm Tyler Durden on 5/19/2016
Complete crap. Claims i don't have an account. You'd think google would know how to make a simple app by now. Maybe it's the slides and all that junk food keeping the staff from actually doing their jobs
great tool!
Steet81 on 5/17/2016
yeah you can't edit every detail of your account with this app but it's still awesome.
Doesn't Work!
Huff75436 on 5/16/2016
I can't believe Google and Apple haven't figured this out yet! Huge disappointment! Ima business owner who needs mobile access to my Adwords but this app doesn't do it and there are no alternatives? Ugh.
Pointless!
Stefy92 on 4/28/2016
All you can do is look at SOME of the information! I want to be able to modify my ads while I'm on the go, but it's not possible with this pointless app! If I can't edit my campaigns then why would I continue to use Adwords??
Worst ap ever!
MeadeTunes on 4/21/2016
Will not perform any functions. It just spins. Useless. Zero stars.
Useless
Gerry4167 on 4/18/2016
It does not give you options to optimize your advertising. Google only scams you into wasting more money. As with any Google advertising they try to confuse you so that you end up wasting money. Total crooks, not an honest company.
Not billing Page
Yyadi on 4/16/2016
Can't check balance of my add, Your adds are running and you don't know how much you owe unless you check on your computer,. Can't make payments!!.
Doesn't work
Bsjelcnavajdb on 4/5/2016
No stats,
Seems to works ok but...
dhimes2 on 4/5/2016
It broke a basic iPhone UI. There seems to be no way to turn off cell data usage for the app. I'm surprised Apple allowed it. I do a lot of international travel and this is a Big Deal.
Not functional

adwordsuser on 2/28/2016
WHEN will you allow to make a payment off of iphone without having to go to desktop mode???! you don't want ppl to control their payments easily so you can make more money.... dumbest way of making extra $$.. how bout just BE BETTER and you will not have to use such a lousy tactics to make more money as forcing ppl go to desktop to pay or add NON authorised keywords in to their accounts without their knowledge!
Great start, needs more
Rewebbed on 2/25/2016
Let me start by giving a quick rundown of my qualifications as a user of this app. I've been Adwords certified for 5 years now and my agency has had Partner status that same time. I was the featured Google Partner in the official Google+ Partners community in October of 2014. Ok enough about me. PROS: The UX is great. Easy to use, clean design, sexy interface. Data is easy to find at each level. You can pause under performing keywords. Good top-level tool to see historical data. CONS: I see two major things that need to be added to truly make this a useful app to an AdWords manager and not just a glorified version of the Analytics app. 1. Having the ability to change keyword bids is almost pointless without being able to filter or bulk apply the bid change. If you manage thousands of keywords, changing a bid one-by-one is not realistic. 2. You cannot create new items. Perhaps creating new campaigns, ad groups, even extensions doesn't make sense to someone in the mobile environment. I agree, those things should be left for the desktop in most instances. However for an Adwords manager, one of the most common optimizing activities is to add new keywords and a/b test ad copy regularly. In order to do this from the app you should be able to add new keywords and ads but you cannot. In closing this app has long been waited by active Adwords managers. Thank you for finally launching it! It's a good start and I hope it continues to improve. For now, I don't think I'll get much use out of it. Looking at data is great, but if you can't act upon it to optimize performance then it's just a reporting tool - and I can wait til I get in the office to do that. What would be helpful to an Adwords manager would be to make adjustments to campaign performance on the go (primarily keywords and ads). This would allow for faster campaign optimizations and less time at the desk; what a truly effective app will accomplish.
Finally!!!!
StuSimpson on 2/22/2016
Finally!!!! ....Oh wait! No way to make payment! Useless!!!! Come on Google. This is lame!
Crash
HaiderSahib on 2/21/2016
Is this app really developed by Google?!
So Close
Disappointed4674 on 2/19/2016
No ability to quickly search for an account makes it practically useless for MCC's that have more than just a few accounts in them.
Works good!
Ch@rls on 2/17/2016
Just opened and it works fine, I just cannot find any way of payment.
About time
Thank YOU... FINALLY on 2/17/2016
