I can transfer documents from phone to computer or vice versa anytime
Gets It Done
Dr. Waterheater on 7/19/2017
I write how-to plumbing instruction : books, magazine and blog. Started out with Pages but switched to Word after Apple screwed-up their program.
Love it
Julie Cuban on 7/19/2017
I love it. It has so many functions and so user friendly. It's my go to app for any letter writing or document composition
Erivas60 on 7/19/2017
I'm a writer and not always at my home computer. So on the road I use this app to write sections and compile them later at home.
lokigirl360 on 7/19/2017
Always does what I need it to do!
MCHoney 2 on 7/19/2017
I do a lot of work on WORD and it is easy to use. Whatever projects I have are always easily completed with this APP. I love it
Review of Microsoft Word.
lemtreepro01 on 7/19/2017
I have used, and been a fan of Microsoft Word for many years. I am very comfortable with this software and would not want to ever use another word processor type program unless I did not have Word and were forced to use something else. For me, this software is the top of the line.
Great app for productivity
RMS1090 on 7/19/2017
The word app is a must have for any on the go college student or writer. It is so simple to open it and start typing right away. I can't imagine myself without it anymore. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs to check their work routinely or that needs a work suite for word editing. It is a great app!
Brionna jade on 7/19/2017
The app isn't perfect but it's definitely convenient. It resembles the full computer program.
Love having Microsoft word
Tisaman20 on 7/19/2017
I think it's great having this app on my phone the only thing I don't like is the icons are so different unless you know the save button you have lost your work
Incredibly helpful
The wichy on 7/19/2017
Simple but efficient and effective tool to get your word documents done.
angiedmalloy on 7/19/2017
Seems like you cannot go wrong with any of the Microsoft products for iPad pro. They work well together and I love that I can use my Apple pencil. I have nearly eliminated the use of paper except for the occasional print. Word is still the best "word processor" out there!
Great product
Larsonrjk on 7/19/2017
Finally, I can use my iPad as a real computer! Word used in conjunction with One Drive works very well. Thanks.
Over heats my iPhone
SlytherinJess on 7/19/2017
I use word a lot, and when I wanna use it when I don't have my laptop near me I go on my phone, but lately it over heats my iPhone 7 to much..... it also doesn't bring up a saved document to where I left it off from I find this ridiculous to be honest
Absolutely great!
AbuNasir on 7/18/2017
It's a great tool
Solracporta on 7/18/2017
This app is very good. I recommend it
What happened to spellcheck in the app??
Islandjavaguy on 7/18/2017
Since the last update, my iPad has lost the spellcheck feature in that it will suggest the correct spelling, but won't fix the word when you select it. Also lost the +learn feature, which for my industry-specific writing is absolutely critical!! Help!!
Almost Essential
Witkh 13 on 7/18/2017
Capitalism and greed are great when practised in moderation, for keeping the world turning. Yet if it's truly essential then it would be truly free. Instead of yet another freemium product, despite it being exceptionally useful and popular. This review is written for Office 2013, and tagged a 'Trial' for 365, to my MicroSoft account. A hundred dollars annual subscription? That is begging practically begging someone to compete against them; A prayer for that is made by me. Competition makes everything better for the consumer. Three/five stars was given, simply for having created and maintained the best grammar checker, that is know by me. If anyone reading this knows of an alternative that is equally as good, or better, please let it be known to me. Supporting any effort to give MicroSoft increased competition is superb, think do I. Government compelled monopolies {primarily with taxes, tarriffs, & regulations}, such as the one MicroSoft pays for, fails to help anyone. However, companies have been far too short sighted to see that; Just as plebeians have been too willfully ignorant to see they have been telling the gov. to enslave them, for over a century's worthy of elections planet-wide. Cloward-Piven were geniuses. As a writer of fictional books, spelling and grammar errors has become a minor annoyance of mine. Therefore, excluding it from what is written by me is ideal; When it is achievable by me. There are better things to spend my time on than to search a mythical alternative, when an answer is right in front of me. Please understand that the three, out of five, stars from me, means that I am suggesting that this is a great product. The extra two stars, from me, would suggest that it 'all' would enjoy using it; Regardless of skill level and interest in writing. That would simply is a blatant lie, there are an abundant number of people who would reject it because of one or more of MicroSoft's politics… or cronyism in general. Nonetheless, shooting myself in the foot just to spite an unfeeling entity, seems a light insane to me. Grateful for you sharing your time & Gravity, am I; May you ask the Goddess to eternally alight your self-determined path.
Lorelite on 7/18/2017
Me encanta 😍
Not Up to 5 Star with Safari
Hugh Simpson on 7/18/2017
Yes I use any Apple iPad and there needs to be some research on how to make it better for this platform. I use to be on Microsoft but that will NEVER happen again!
Time saver on the go-!
Roses2nd on 7/18/2017
Can still do my work and not be tied to a desk Can't live without this app!!!
ekklesiadad on 7/18/2017
365 in general and Word in particular make it possible for me to work with the convenience of my iPad Pro about 90% of the time. My one gripe about the use of the Apple Pencil was corrected in the latest update. Five stars with no reservations.
Works for me
Air Borne Ranger on 7/18/2017
Great for writing, emailing and saving simple reports.
Very nice app.
Klstearns on 7/17/2017
This app works as good as Word on my laptop does. Very pleased with it.
Bug fecile on 7/17/2017
We love the app can't think of anything I can ask to be better I'm sure there is lol but I'm good with it!!!
Great App
likeabull on 7/17/2017
This app is great for opening docs emailed to me and writing simple docs. I don't know if it is a full app or not but I like it for simple word processing.
Great app
cowboy gorl on 7/17/2017
Love it! So easy and great!
Lost notes
SebForm on 7/17/2017
For iPad Pro, when I markup a document using Apple Pencil all markups disappear if I open the document in a desktop version of Word Professional Plus 2010. A shame that all that work just vanishes.
Works well
jnadeau57 on 7/17/2017
No problems.
Wonderful App!
dbl0365 on 7/17/2017
I use it every day!
A helpful App Store for an iPad
speaking Eagle on 7/17/2017
What was not a complete version of Word, this app provides ample features to work on documents in an effective manner.
Great for home use
Terry d'Actyl on 7/17/2017
I have long used Word on my computer and am grateful that it is also available for iPad. I use the iPad much more often than the laptop because it is so easily transported. Word meets all of my writing needs. It does exactly what I expect it to do. It is also straightforward and easy to use.
Love this app
Claire Pemberton on 7/17/2017
Extremely helpful app. Love it and use it daily!
Excellent App
Qwerty Pop 1966 on 7/17/2017
The Word app contains extensive options and functionality. Writing documents on the phone is now possible with this app. Very useful!
IPad Pro 10.5"
Mn Mom 13 on 7/16/2017
Great app with all the functionality I need for my personal needs, however, I am very disappointed to learn that I am unable to use my new iPad Pro 10.5" to edit documents. I have been a regular Microsoft user at home (and at work) for years and was thrilled when the iOS app functionality opened but now I can no longer use my tablet to edit my personal documents without paying for a O365 subscription. I simply do not have enough need to warrant the cost so will be moving my documents to a Microsoft competitor. Sad to go. :(
Great App
RealestWill on 7/16/2017
This app is just as good as desktop version, actually better! A must have!
Great software!
Quantifyer on 7/16/2017
Use it a lot.
Great app
Genepop49 on 7/16/2017
I've been using Word for years and this app is great.
Great App
AnnaJayOh on 7/16/2017
Works great. Has many options. Helps with school.
Dorothy d67 on 7/16/2017
I love this program. It has every thing I need for my IPad.
Subscription?? Why why why
Swampsuds on 7/16/2017
Started out a great app and now Bill Gates wants more of my money to just "save" a word Doc. No thanks. Money hungry so-ans-sos. Too many ok apps out there that don't want my blood just to produce a document.
Creation place
Koshin bob on 7/16/2017
Love having it on my phone can dictate while cycling thanks
Good, but still a few bugs.
kirksbiggestfan on 7/16/2017
When ending the voice command, the last character is often deleted.
Easy & Convenient
BigMamaLI on 7/16/2017
I can make a community flyer or School absent note for my teens on the go and send it right from my phone. Paperless saves money and best of all God's creation.
M. Bowser on 7/16/2017
The Microsoft Word app is awesome. I use it on my iPad Pro and it works great. Very convenient. Mark Bowser (writer/Business Speaker) Author of "Sales Success"
Love It
Eugenia1964 on 7/16/2017
This app is all I need to do my daily work. I would recommend it to others?
Keep Up the Excellent Work.
Shuai "Mike" on 7/15/2017
It's fast, convenient, free! Now, I hope that the great AutoSave feature could upgrade its stability feature--namely, the cursor doesn't move at all when typing. Thank you!
Works well
MN MommaV on 7/15/2017
This app works well for my iPhone 6. I'm able to type in new crocheting patterns and have it with me wherever I go.
Amazingly good Office for iPad
pastorjnaumann on 7/15/2017
I love it when an app is better than it 'has to be'! Way beyond some barely functioning equivalents, the new free Office for iPad is packed with features that all the paid apps lack. And most of all - it works - particularly with cloud clients that other iPad apps are unable or unwilling to support. And yes, I'm talking about the free version! Thanks to Microsoft's office apps for iPad my tablet has just taken one huge step toward replacing my laptop!
Love it!
jojoca410 on 7/15/2017
I love it because when I'm in a rush or out of office I'm able to handle every issue on time!! The program is very easy and I don't have any issues with it.
