Works for my needs
TroLi10 on 4/18/2018
Update: The developer Team reached out to me to provide them with information to analyze what was causing the app’s problems. It was quite a bit of “wrangling” the program on my part, but I understand their need for internal system info. During the days I was gearing up to do this “info dump” to them, an iOS update was released that fixed the app’s issue! Problem solved and I didn’t have to play “techie for a day.” I use it infrequently, but it works for my needs. With this newest update, I can see all of my spreadsheets, but when I try and open them, it says “file not found.” When I try and delete them, it says “file not found.” I’ve tried opening both the Numbers and the Excel versions of each file. I’ve also tried to select and share to my iPhone...that just brings up a blank screen. I have a year old iPad and the latest iOS update and have not experienced problems with any other apps. What is going on?!?!
Looked promising at first.
Madragongirl on 4/16/2018
The app looks very promising at first. I started to ya the ‘shared expenses’ template and everything went well until I tried to enter the dollar amounts for ‘contribution’ and all hell broke loose. A group of people in my family ‘contributed’ towards our vacation expenses this coming Christmas and it would have been such a useful app if it had worked !
Pencil needs a toggle switch
Mewhirter on 4/15/2018
UPDATE: Just noticed that Microsoft Excel for iPad has a toggle switch in the iPad app settings to turn the Apple Pencil always draw feature off. Come on Apple, please up your game. I like to brag about how much better you are than Microsoft, yet they are clearly beating you on this one (and with your own Pencil feature at that). Downgrading my 3 star rating to a 1 star rating until you fix his issue. Please do so quickly. ORIGINAL: For the most part, I love numbers. I use it daily. It has worked great for my purposes. But with the last update, they added the ability to draw on the spreadsheet with Apple Pencil. Nice feature but there is no ability to turn it off and use the pencil as I have been (to click and highlight/drag cells, etc.) Now everytime the tip of my pencil touches the sheet it draws a line. I hate that. With my iPad Pro, the pencil gave me the reach to get cells in the middle of the screen without slowing me down. Please add a toggle switch to switch between draw mode and the old functionality and I will be back to 5 stars. I used pencil the most with numbers and now I can’t use it at all.
Apple Pencil
spearfishpastor on 4/14/2018
Newest update is horrible. Can’t use Apple Pencil for scrolling, highlighting, dragging, dropping, etc. Ridiculous that you can’t shut off the smart annotation feature. Inexcusable. And please, could you not make all your users be beta testers? Thanks for your consideration.
Latest update to numbers
Blackstarsd on 4/14/2018
Before the last update to numbers. I have an iPad Pro 12.? Inches with an apple pencil. I use numbers a lot and use the pencil to touch the screen and that way i don’t have to use my fingers an fill my ipad with finger print smudges. But since the last update that they added the drawing capabilities any time that i touch the screen in numbers with my apple pencil, it automatically start drawing and it seems they did not include a disable future.
Ipencil drawing feature
rberky on 4/13/2018
On the iPad I prefer to use the iPencil as a stylus - not a drawing tool! At least there should be a way to switch between drawing and pointing. Without that feature Numbers has become totally useless to me on the iPad. Most often I create an excel file on my pc, save it to the cloud and open on the iPad only to view it. Never do I try to modify the spreadsheet in Numbers because I end up spending an enormous amount of time reformatting. Spreadsheets are supposed to save time not make more work. Worthless iPad app.
Why oh why ?
hansjim on 4/12/2018
Let me put in the cells what I want to , not what you want me to !!!!!!!!!!!!
I love Numbers but...
Global Xealot on 4/11/2018
It does need some improvement. I like the fact that there is conditional formatting available now, but it falls short. I need to be able to conditionally Format a cell or cells based upon the contents of another cell. I also need to be able to reference a cell in another file. I also need to be able to create signatures in a form (a sheet that is a form). And then lock that single cell. Maybe even lock it with a passcode associated with a iCloud ID. I need to be able to lock individual cells or groups of cells without locking the entire table. I need to be able to lock an entire sheet. I need to be able to group photos with tables. I need to be able to group a picture with a cell. I need to be able to upload pictures into Cells. I need pictures not to be cut in half when I’m printing or exporting to a .pdf. I need for tables not to start overlapping when I print or export to .pdf. I need to be able to see page boundaries so I know where a page begins or ends without going to print view. I need to be able to use my Apple Pencil like a finger again, and then switch to marking up with it when I choose to do so. In need to be able to adjust the Form Sheet’s cell’s Formatting and dimensions. I need to be able to create a form, produce a blank copy daily and then just sign and print that form to pdf to share or archive.
Last update deleted all my files
Oatnet on 4/11/2018
So after updating the numbers app in early April 2018, I discovered all the spreadsheets stored LOCALLY on my IPad have disappeared. When I try to open any new files I airdrop or email, the app takes a long time to open, then presents a workspace with no spreadsheet and no files available to open. I know Apple would like me to GIVE them all my private data (aka force me to store it on their cloud), and I guess these shenanagins are their attempt to make storing it locally untenable so I will do so. Today’s Facebook controversy won’t hold a candle to what happens when the general public realizes storing data on a cloud effectively means that it is now possible for others to access it. Stop being evil, Apple.
rdz on 4/11/2018
Constantly crashes and I lost all of my spreadsheets after an update. Really Apple?
Keeps getting better!
Tipper1958 on 4/8/2018
I’ve used Excel for years but with the addition of quick filters I find myself preferring numbers for its ease. Love the new quick filter function. This to me was the missing link. Well done team Numbers!
Hand write on excel
Mileyard on 4/5/2018
I was excited when I first saw this possibility, but it is a complete disappointment. When using my Apple Pencil I can only hand write on my project. I can’t return to typing by indicating done. The only way I can proceed is to switch to my stylist.
I can’t even open my old spreadsheets
MarilouWho55 on 4/4/2018
This used to be so easy. I used to be able to use this to price out my product. Each product is slightly different so I would just copy my master sheet and enter my qty of materials for each product type. No more. It won’t even open my old sheets and FORGET about trying to duplicate a sheet. It gets stuck in limbo and never does anything. Did anyone even try this “upgrade” before pushing it down??? Seriously?
Screwed the Pooch
tim cavendish on 4/4/2018
Screwed the pooch with this latest update that adds increased functionality with the Apple Pencil and drawing. I don’t need drawings with my spreadsheets thank you. Now I can no longer use the pencil to adroitly pick cells or insertion points. I have to use my clumsy digits because as soon as I touch the pencil to the surface of my iPad Pro and the Numbers app it’s in drawing mode. And as far as I can tell there is no to turn this off
Drawing update makes using Numbers with Apple Pencil nearly impossible.
RobertfromKytot on 4/3/2018
I used to use my Apple Pencil to navigate through the small cells on complex spreadsheets. Now, whenever I touch the screen with Apple Pencil, the drawing too activates. I don’t want to draw! I want to select cells! Why can’t this draw function be deactivated? The Developer Response I received was 100% UNHELPFUL. I want to know how to NOT draw with Apple Pencil. I want to be able to use my Apple Pencil in Numbers WITHOUT drawing!
Just because I have a pencil doesn’t mean I want to use it for everything
tbdbitl on 4/3/2018
I can’t find a way to go back to the keyboard in a spreadsheet that is older. Backward support is a good thing. Don’t cut us off.
Last Update Crashed It
FlippingTheBird101 on 4/3/2018
I created a new spreadsheet 2 days after the last update. Today, it is frozen and has frozen the whole program. nothing responds. I am a retired accountant. All of my personal spreadsheets are in Numbers. Needless to say, this is a huge disappointment.
Taking the Pro out of iPad Pro, one update at a time.
Selvius on 4/1/2018
The recent update has eliminated the ability to use the Apple Pencil for anything useful, changing it from a fine pointer tool (the “mouse” of the iPad Pro) to a $99 crayon. The only people who draw on spreadsheets are executives and teachers. The rest of us need functionality in data entry and manipulation. It seems that Apple has decided iWork has lost the business market, and are focusing solely on education. It’s a sound long-term strategy, as kids grow up using iWork instead of Office, but a simple off switch for annotation would reinstate functionality that has vanished literally overnight.
Cell formate
jonnytrixi on 4/1/2018
The keyboard and Cell buttons are I the way on the iPhone. I think it would be better if the were at the top with the sorting and formate tools The cell formate "duration" was easier to use in the old version. Under cell format, duration, Units I would like to also see year and months as units so that you would be able to display something like “2y 3m 1w 4d”
ExcelFan on 3/31/2018
Apple has done it again! They have corrupted certain functions and data entry associated with text and time. Do not update if you use such formulas in your spreadsheet. Known problems to date: T function fails Now need to use VALUE function to convert between cell types Data entry in text field “0900” now becomes “900” which will mess up time functions. Sometimes can resolve with ‘0900 (which caused extra chance for error in field collections) To add to our misery, Numbers converts the HOURS function from an excel formatted file to something with an internal syntax error (something about incompatible cell formats). Conformity test with Excel and QuickEdit apps confirms this is a Numbers problem only. I have sent out a notice to all of our field users not to update. Hopefully, Apple will resolve this quickly. I have simple spreadsheet to demonstrate this massive error. Should not really give 1 Star!
New 4.0 version changes for iPencil not good
Go Bucks !! on 3/31/2018
The new 4.0 version makes the pencil at like a real pencil that a stylus this means every time you use the pencil I want to draw on your spreadsheet instead of selecting a cell or row to highlight or selecting a cell or row to put a formula. This is great for Pages or Keynote but for excel is very frustrating. I can see where that might be useful in certain instances, but there must be some type of toggle where you can turn on the writing functionality of the pencil or turn on the stylist type of functionality. This upgrade makes this app useless for me. I would give the upgrade negative stars.
Annoying update.
Mattekus on 3/31/2018
Deleted the monthly expense sheet I was working on. Annoying considering it’s just wiped out a months work.
So. Unbelievably. Laggy.
Squash Those Bugs on 3/30/2018
Update: Ever since the Pencil update and the iOS 11.3 update, this app has had fatal bugs. Formulas won’t get updated. Pasted cells will become blank. Data will be lost. This review used to be two stars. Now it’s one. Apple. This is embarrassing. — Frequently it’ll take half a second between a touch input on the keyboard and the corresponding character to be typed into the cell. This doesn’t happen in any other apps, so it’s not my phone’s processor speed. Even worse, very frequently my preset text replacements (Settings → General → Keyboard → Text Replacements) won’t trigger because of the lag. I use text replacements constantly in Numbers because many cells have the same or similar entries. I suspect there’s some sort of asynchronicity going on where the keyboard times out any text lookup if it takes too long. In other words, Numbers has such keyboard lag that it frequently triggers this timeout. Again, this doesn’t happen with any other app.
Copy and Paste Option
Looking 4 better on 3/30/2018
Been using this app for years now the copy and paste function is not working.
Crush & slow functioning
Hamudmud on 3/30/2018
It crushes when I add something new and becomes slow
Leave to Apple to screw up a product
Ejazz159 on 3/30/2018
My question - do any adults work at Apple? It was a decent product....right up until you went down the “creative” route with iWork. Writing/drawing is ZERO value in a spreadsheet program. If this is your direction change the name of the software suite to “iKiddies” as it’s no longer suited to work. On a small screen using the pencil to make selections was great....writing in s spreadsheet? Useless, rename it to “fingerpaint”.
Undo button
Slynivek on 3/29/2018
Move the undo button from the current location. It is too close to the button to exist the work sheet. Alternatively, make the undo require confirmation pop up to actually undo. It is very easy to mistakenly undo an event without even realizing you did.
Pencil Support Confusing
Remyemily on 3/29/2018
So, the integration of more Pencil uses in Pages and Numbers, but it makes using them much more difficult. In earler versions, the Pencil could be used as something of a mouse and an accurate pointer between words and letters (as it is as I’m writing this review). However, the newest update assumes that you want to use the Pencil for graphics wherever you place it in a document. The only alternative appears to be to go back and forth between use of Pencil and finger and is much less accurate.
Simply great!
bw4elvis on 3/29/2018
I love, love, love Numbers! It’s a joy to use. The built in templates are stunning, and they make Excel's templates look outdated and clunky. The donut charts are especially fun! Numbers is so aesthetically pleasing that it's easy to forget what a powerhouse you’re using. I also love that I can use the Apple Pencil with it.
Nice update
This Ken on 3/28/2018
Of what value is a spreadsheet if you can no longer update or change data in the cells.
Update ruins Numbers!!!
Freedlun on 3/28/2018
I use Numbers (and the other iWork apps) extensively on iPad Pro. I also use an Apple Pencil as an accurate stylus. But Themis new update makes that impossible! Now all the Pencil is good for is drawing! Who needs to draw on a spreadsheet! Sure there are some uses? But why make this the default???? This is as bad as when you took away the Calendar keyboard. You brought that back, now PLEASE allow us to use the Pencil as a stylus!!!! When it returns as an option my rating will be back at 5 stars.
Please don’t ...
lumpster182 on 3/28/2018
... update ever again. Next time I just delete the app.
Koldfield on 3/28/2018
Great App. Would be better if you could rotate text within a cell.
Great update, now I can’t even open a spreadsheet
debibeads on 3/28/2018
Today’s update has me stopped in my tracks. I can open Numbers but can open or download any of my spreadsheets. Guess I just call it a day since I can’t do anything. Another thoughtless Apple update.
So after years of frustration
3MacMinis on 3/28/2018
I will get an inexpensive Windows laptop and run Excel. Numbers could have been, and should have been, much better by now, especially given the power of the latest i-Pad Pro. I don’t know what Apples logic is here, but it seems that they want this app to die on the vine. Sad. And it still doesn’t find a number of stocks by ticker (BGX) which are all easily found using other apps. Numbers is a “dogs breakfast...”! Pitiful! It’s apps like this that make others call the iPad a “toy”. BTW, I would gladly pay a fair price for a “working” version of Numbers. “Stock Quote” doesn’t find a number of stocks that display on other apps, and when selecting “Previous Close”, (BGX) it winds up with a red triangle in the field instead! March 28 update? Lipstick on a pig. It still won’t work with trying to get a stock quote on BGX, a widely held fund traded on the NYSE! Turns out Yahoo Finance May not have been working for some time, but Apple has not opted to replace it with a valid source for up to date data.
Nice for simple spreadsheets, weak on printing and productivity
WildToad-3004 on 3/28/2018
I’d been a user of Excel for a number of years (20+) but decided to move to IOS versus Windows, and didn’t want to pay for a copy of Excel for the iPad Pro. Many things I took for granted in Excel are not available in the IOS version of Numbers such as dynamic drop down lists for selecting items. Numbers for IOS has a lot of catching up to do with the version for MAC, even more for Excel.
Templates are gone after update
outbackermike on 3/28/2018
When I used the app before update I would press the plus button and chose a template , now I press the plus sign and get nothing please fix
Need button to turn draw on and off
leiriel on 3/28/2018
It was good until latest updates. Need to be able to disable draw function so I can tap on spreadsheets and not go into draw mode. Maybe tap on pencil icon in top right corner to enter and exit draw mode
Why can’t I get the new version to work?
Cussler fan on 3/27/2018
It says Family. I don’t want family I want my own files. There is no assistance no help.
Great app but something missing
loner4sure on 3/27/2018
I find this app intuitive to use. I use Numbers and Pages on a regular basis. Once in a while I use keynote. While using numbers, pages or keynote, I’ve found I’m unable to create passwords on any of the documents on my tablet. The exception is if I use my MacBook to create them. Since I help or work with different people projects, I would like assign passwords instead of hiding files. I would gladly amend my rating when I’m able to create a password protected document on my tablet.
4.0 Great Update!
LawOfEdge on 3/27/2018
Finally added filtering and multi sort capability along with many annotation and graphing updates. This makes Numbers IOS a full function spreadsheet!
App hangs after partial update.
357 MAG on 3/27/2018
You would think that Apple would know how to create and maintain an IOS App. And you would be wrong. This app partially updates then hangs leaving the app totally useless. 6 updates on iPad and 12 updated on iPhone. All update fine except for pages and numbers.
A little better than an adding machine, but not much,
MacMlife on 3/27/2018
This ap is a continual learning process with little or no increase in function.
Ver 3.3
Player 1 Ron on 3/26/2018
Edit: Follow up - as of iOS 11.2.5, the previously corrupted files are now accessible and correct. Whatever the support team did was good. Thank you iWorks team! Either the ios11 or Numbers update corrupted the spreadsheet data on my iPhone. Currently I’m in process with support to sort this out. Will update when I’m finished with support. Turn on iCloud Drive if you haven’t already. I didn’t and here I am.
An app with a great potential but GLITCHES
LUCHILLE on 3/24/2018
I tried it couple of times and it was very pleasing. Then I tried to open what I had saved it keeps glitching... it can go saying “something went wrong.. try again” for the rest of the day which will just makes you frustrated. Couple of days later, fter receiving reply from the app support and followed the steps it went back working again. I am a happy app user now.
Update did the opposite
Yrcs on 3/22/2018
The update was for stability but instead it lost my documents and the program opens but is a blank screen and does nothing. I tap the + sign but no new document opens...nothing happens. Time to find a program that works. I would give it a -5 stars but it makes you give one.
Fix the app
Ch@nit@ on 3/22/2018
Something went wrong when display the documents. Fix it please.
Numbers file open bug
BrianJonathan86 on 3/20/2018
The app is nice with simple design, but after a time of use appeared the BIG bug that I can’t open anything file, the File app is included. Work just 3D touch preview but with a simple touch - NO! Apple try to solve these simples Bugs! Thanks!
App opens but doesn’t function
Nausii on 3/19/2018
How many times i have downloaded and reinstalled. The app opens well but doesn’t function at all. Why is this happening? Please fix because i truly like this app and it’s easy for me to work with. I am using 6s. Please please fix this.
Solid Program, but Needs ‘Create Template’ Function
Peddidle on 3/18/2018
This is the first version of Numbers I’ve used, so I can’t say I feel thrown off by the most recent update (seems other users have been, though the functions mentioned in their comments are ones I was able to find and use in this latest version—function layout must have dramatically changed). I was able to Google my way through finding the functions I wanted for a basic speadsheet involving dollars, dates, checklist, adding/deleting columns/rows, changing column width, etc. Everything worked seamlessly! The one disappointment is when I Googled how to create my own template, I found this is not an option when using the app. One has to create the template using the Mac version of Numbers, add the template, and then access it from the app. I don’t have a Mac, so... Despite the great variety of templates and being able to find one that was close to what I wanted, it would be nice to be able to create my own so I don’t have to tweak the template every time I want a new spreadsheet. There might be some work-around I haven’t figured out yet, but until then, it seems I’m out what could be a really great feature—creating my own template.
