With Word, your Office moves with you. Whether you are a blogger, writer, journalist, columnist, student, or a project manager working on documentation, it’s as handy as you want it to be.
Make impactful text documents, scripts, blogs, write-ups, or resumes. Customize your document, letter, resume, or notes your way with robust tools that enable you to accomplish your best writing with the best format options.

Use rich formatting and layout options to note down your ideas and express them in writing. Document format and layout stays pristine and looks great — no matter what device you use.

Read, write, and edit comfortably
Reading view lets you read long docs, letters, scripts, and more on your device with ease.

Share thoughts by commenting in your doc right next to the text you’re discussing. Everyone can add to the conversation and stay on top of changes to the text, layout, and formatting. As you and your team make changes, you can revert to view earlier drafts with improved version history in Word.

Sharing is simplified
Share your files with a few taps to quickly invite others to edit or view your documents. Easily manage permissions and see who’s working in a document. Copy the content of your Word files directly into the body of an email message with its format intact or attach your docs to an email and make sharing easier.

Not a fan of annual payments
legalbro on 8/18/2018
Sorry, but even with the updates (most of which I’ll never need/use), the annual fee and constant need to log in over and over (otherwise the app is functionally disabled because saving and editing is limited). I’ll be switching to Apple products going forward.
Not true word
A-Head the origjnal on 8/18/2018
I’m tired of having to sign in to use the app. I’m not always online when I want to use word. But you must be online to sign in, and you can’t “edit” or “create” unless you do so. Very annoying.
Doesn’t work

#pantherlife on 8/17/2018
I so far love everything about it except for I can’t figure out how to change my profile picture
Great app!
blacksheepmama on 8/16/2018
I have a very busy life and this app allows me to do my paperwork whenever I have a spare moment, no matter where I am. I love it!

Frozen in time
farrisj44 on 8/15/2018
I’ve always enjoyed my Outlook App on the iPad, however over the last 2 months the app seems to freeze nearly every time I check mail. My device is the iPad Pro 256GB with 212GB free space, so this shouldn’t be a hardware issue. I installed the latest update but it still freezes. Not happy...
Works great on iPad!
DanielKoren on 8/15/2018
Many features I thought I would lose such as layouts, etc. So far I have been pleasantly surprised.
Saeh53 on 8/14/2018
The best for documents
Hashmatrasool on 8/13/2018
Cumbersome but fair
Infinitus1 on 8/13/2018
It does the job, but I do tend to like the features offered by Pages much more. It’s much easier to use. However, Word came in handy during my university days and it still dies the trick when you need it.
My opinion
🏇🏇🐴🐴🦄🦄 on 8/13/2018
I like this app
Download size
BestAppsUser on 8/13/2018
I will no longer use Wifi - the artificial limits on download are about to make me delete your LARGE App. I have a case at Apple and of course they blame you and the carrier - the support agent agrees it is “Stupid”. I wonder why it’s okay to stream Gigs of a baseball game or a movie but downloading an app that is Broken is a NO NO. MS NOT that differentiating these days. Same for other MS apps. I like Outlook but LookOUT to be gone too. And since I own the company that buys 365 and Azure gone is a BIG gone. Tick. Tick, tick. I’m sure that you are now aware I can let other users know all is well in a few days or so, therefore rating will go to a deserved location. As my I always say, “ when it doesn’t make sense it is about the Cents. Let’s use some common sense, and worry less about the small cents. Ready set GO! - drdave
SpicyPeaches on 8/13/2018
I love using Word on my computer, so I decided to get it here. But every time I try to sign in, it says Office Word is not responding please try again later. I thought the update would fix this but it didn’t. Please please PLEASE fix this. It would be so much more useful with people with problems like mine. (Word is still a super cool writing application/website. Keep up the good work! 👌🏽)
Best app for school!
Dragons Daughter on 8/13/2018
I do not always have access to my computer but with this app I am able to write an essay for school all on my phone and then switch to a computer at home with so much ease. Then I am able to upload the document to my school. This is the best app and deserves all 5 stars!
Why I have to open it with my QQ account?
Effie如鹰展翅 on 8/13/2018
I thought I could open it with my Wechat account , but it just allows me to open the word files with my QQ account, but I don’t have one!
Home/Love on 8/13/2018
I was very satisfied and surprised to find that this free app is all I need.
No labels option
stars8110 on 8/12/2018
Why can’t we not make labels with this app?
Unable to sign in. Please cancel subscription ASAP
MimiMaya on 8/12/2018
Do not purchase this! I followed the recommendation of buying this app so I could us this on it’s entirely for one month and it DOES NOT let you sign in. I’ve changed the password a few times already, without any success. I am very very disappointed with this app and MICROSOFT. I thought I was getting something worth working with and quality, but I end up with nothing. Try to find another program if you’re trying to make a spreadsheet or document. Maybe you’ll get it for free. I have NEVER BEEN ABLE TO USE IT. DO NOT SUBSCRIBE.
Great app to edit documents.
DecaTreize1985 on 8/12/2018
When I'm not at my laptop, I can rely on the app to edit docs on the go. 😉
Loony Moon on 8/12/2018
I like this app (so far—we’ll see.) It has allowed me to write my stories and look at old documents of mine to see which I want to remix and add in to my current stories. I’m not sure about the payment thing—I’ve been using my school Office 365 account so far. Hope I won’t have to pay anything!!! 😬 But anyways. It’s good. I like it, and if you’re a writer and have an Office 365 account (maybe from school??) you should get it!
EllenW0517 on 8/11/2018
It’s nice to have documents from Office on my phone, especially some important ones that I need immediate access to.
No, absolutely not....
Photojockey on 8/11/2018
I loathe this app. I had several projects started, got locked out, had to start an account, still locked out... Alas, Microsoft still can not get it together.
It’s free
courryy on 8/11/2018
Exactly what I need!!!!
skgrooms on 8/11/2018
I’m so pleased with this app. I have been able to do loads of work any time, anywhere, then print it off when I return to the office. Love it.
Office 365
donpr53 on 8/11/2018
Just keeps getting better and better.
It’s a grew app
Alan Digital Services on 8/10/2018
Can use it any where
Microsoft outlook and/or teams
Cris Kilduf on 8/10/2018
The different aspects of the windows platform or operating system, Excel, Access, Word, are now going to be joined by Microsoft teams, I’m in awe waiting for its integration. I’m still learning about Word and PowerPoint , Microsoft edge, and networking. It’s all very exciting.
Auto save
Mreeves336 on 8/10/2018
There needs to be a way to turn off auto save. I edit my resume a lot and save it in different formats and i need to be able to “save as” Without altering the original document like you can on the computer.
Updated Word on my iPad and now I can no longer open or save any document
Lonely Traveler on 8/10/2018
After updating Word on my iPad I am unable to save any document. If I try to save I am told I cannot save because I do not have an Office365 subscription, but I was able to save and open documents before. Word folder in Files App shows in OnMyiPad (I’m trying to save locally to iPad, not through OneDrive). Interestingly, I can save and open on my iPhone with no issues.
App is not opening
Shakilsyeed on 8/10/2018
Totally frustrating, I can not even my previous words documents let alone new document.
Love Word!
Hussdoe on 8/10/2018
I can write up proposals & invoices and then email them to customers from my iPhone, I think that is just awesome! Sincerely, E. Hussey

John (San Diego) on 8/9/2018
Using "Word?" ... it doesn't get any better than this iPhone App!; being able to make changes on the go, away from the office; it's awesome! John
Hannahleemadison on 8/9/2018
Being able to access my documents from all my devices
mtagmd on 8/9/2018
Excellent Program
Whiteknightsky on 8/9/2018
This is Word as we’ve always known it; powerful, capable, and functional. This time it’s online, and is much superior to Google Docs. I have written papers for school, creative writing for our literary journal, and household lists with it, and never have a problem. Good work, Microsoft.
Cmw505 on 8/8/2018
Just like Microsoft word
Always A Good Microsoft
Heide30 on 8/8/2018
Office Application!!
audric_6_odds on 8/8/2018
It won’t allow me to transfer information from my phone to my computer
La mejor aplicación para hacerte la vida más fácil
Sanbrota on 8/8/2018
Con esta aplicación estoy muy feliz porque hace todo lo que yo necesito para editar mis documentos es rápida y segura mil gracias a los creadores de office 360
Poor user experience for viewing
twoscreens on 8/8/2018
Word refuses to view documents sent via email as a SharePoint link. Open on the link opens the web viewer in Safari with a horrendous rubber band effect when scrolling. Close the tab, and go back to the email, click-hold the link and choose Open in Word. It launches in Word and redirects back to Safari to open there. The Safari banner shows Open in Word, click that, and the same dance back to Safari. MS integration testing gets a fail.
Robust, but challenging
Lryden on 8/7/2018
All the changes leave me going to my browser to figure out something I’ve always known, i.e., After you’ve saved something through “Save as”, where does the “Save” option go?
Why I love this app
neverbroke69 on 8/7/2018
This app is easy to use.
Works Surprisingly Well
christyharper83 on 8/7/2018
Basically everything I use Word for on my computer is available in this app. It’s pretty intuitive if you’re familiar with the desktop program. Word makes it easy for me to write/ edit and flip between my computer and phone with ease. Only reason I didn’t give it five stars is because I’m sure there’s ways to improve— I just haven’t found them yet.
Won’t let me sign in!!!!
Higouprdvh taytay the baybay on 8/6/2018
I press sign in, it’s takes me to sign in page, I put in my email, THEN IT DIRECTS ME TO A NEW PAGE THAT SAYS MY EMAIL IS TAKEN. I KNOW ITS TAKEN! ITS TAKEN BY ME! NOW LET ME SIGN IN! This app is useless without me able to get into my account. I need my resume!
Needs write to text conversion for Apple Pencil
84 ford dude on 8/6/2018
I use this app a lot for school, and it’s my favorite writing/word processing app. Even above Pages. I would recommend this app for anybody. It would be nice however to have a “handwriting to text” conversion, so those of us who want to use our Apple pencils to write can also hand write docs, and use traditional font.
B32MCo on 8/5/2018
Beginning to like Microsoft as an innovator again. Office 365 is working well.
Wonderful for college
Cass** on 8/5/2018
I use this app on multiple devices and love that it connects to all of them. All my editing is saved and can switch from my tablet to my laptop and continue from where I left off.
