Word for iPad
FishHead#101 on 5/24/2018
While I am grateful for the app as it is a good app that allows me to work when away from home, there are some missing capabilities that make it difficult to be efficient. However, like I said, it is still a good app and better than having nothing at all. So, I am truly grateful for the app.
It’s getting worse.
Playing blind on 5/24/2018
I write for a living and I had hoped the awkward autocorrect in this app would get better, but it has recently gotten far worse. Words are getting auto-capitalized in the middle of a sentence that have no business getting capitalized- words like ‘food’, ‘brick’, ‘cherish’, etc. I don’t think the word ‘floor’ is a proper noun, guys. Also, any abbreviations like I’d or don’t are getting spaces after the apostrophes and partially forming onto the next word, meaning I have to go back and take it step by step to correct it. Every. Friggin. Time. Do you have any idea how many abbreviations are used in a bout of causal dialogue? I was no fan of the autocorrect before, but now it’s becoming more of an obstacle than a nuisance. 2018 Update, still not fixed.
Buckaroobanzaii on 5/24/2018
Over all I like the product, just wish it was a little easier to use instead of guessing how to save documents on an iPhone for me anyway.
pikanoy14 on 5/24/2018
This app is useful for all kinds of things it is not a waste at all
Excellent app
d.croft on 5/24/2018
I’m a student working on my associates degree. I use word to write all my papers and homework. The things I can do with this app are amazing. I don’t have internet so using this app on my phone is a lifesaver.
Word Reviw
DScRR on 5/24/2018
I love this on the iPad! Been waiting for the word app.
PDBSpruill on 5/23/2018
Not recommend for iPad
Testcrew on 5/23/2018
This app aHas crashed two of my iPads in the past two months. Recently, the app refuses to close. Had to hard shut down my iPad and then remove this app from it before it corrupted the tablet. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS!!!!
Hope you have Office 365
Bhaird1 on 5/23/2018
Without it this is useless.
Pretty good, for an iPad app
Abe D. on 5/22/2018
I must say, it is pretty useful for creating and copying documents. Even so, there are still bugs that have never been fixed ever since I have obtained the app. One of them is that I try to close documents when the app launches using the cancel button. It says it is trying to cancel, but it opens it anyway. Aside from this, the app is sort of good, although with a very simple and confusing design—not what I would expect of a company giant in program developing.
GrifinDork on 5/22/2018
The app is great but how do u put pictures in the document section
No good
htrdrdgghdfgdrrt on 5/21/2018
I go typing and nothing shows up waste of time
Amazing for typing
Flower😜 on 5/21/2018
This is a really good app but as all apps have problems this apps problem is that there are some minor glitches which I think can be changed.You should get this app!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
The bugs

Some of the bugs never get fixed which is really bad because it takes slower
Convenience and mobility
Jaybo on the go! on 5/21/2018
I don’t think I have ever used another word processing app, I love that it’s compatible with my IPhone now! Always on the go!
fc48 on 5/21/2018
Word is very fun because it helps to make very creative stories and helps kids to practice typing.
MS Word mobile app
1st04bravo on 5/21/2018
Love the desktop version as always. Hate the mobile app. Too user UNFRIENDLY. It's a joke.
katie-rose💛🌧. on 5/21/2018
Word is helping me with many many projects and I just go on it to write random stuff when I get bored,, I love Word soooo much and it is soooo helpful!! THANK GOD!!
Login every day!?
Dave0620 on 5/20/2018
Why do I have to re-logon every day!? I never used to be required to. **** Thanks for feedback. "Dark colors" were off and "reduce transparency" was ON. Not sure what that has to do with logging on and never change this setting. Will see tomorrow if that solved the problem. ***Update....still have to log in. Suggestions didn't work!***
blooming.dej 💞 on 5/20/2018
Great for school work !
Best app
schoolkid2415 on 5/20/2018
I used this app for a school essay and have been using it for fun mini activities
Flawless on iPad
sdsteelsr on 5/20/2018
As with most things on Apple this works Flawless. This app opens without any issues without even from the cloud it very fast and stable.
Love this app!
Niyahdoe on 5/19/2018
This is app allows me to work on my books...right from my phone! I was soooo happy when Word and IOS FINALLY became compatible. This app is a dream come true.
Used to be great. New updates a letdown
Doc243 on 5/18/2018
The Word app used to have many functions that were recently removed. The spacing options, the alignments to center and the sides, and many more that used to allow me to work from my iPad now make me send it to a computer before I can submit it. Please return those basic functions that EVERY Microsoft word software comes with (since before windows 2000)
imezruez2 on 5/18/2018
Can’t even SEE the folders on the iPhone nor does it let you import files into folders that the ap can see
I love word but
booooopppppoooo on 5/18/2018
I love word but anytime I send my work through email. It gets all jumbled and whom ever I send it to can’t read it and I have to copy it and send it in a message
Good program
FronSno on 5/18/2018
Good program but gave three stars because it is very difficult to get a blank/ new page. I have tried several times but nothing works. Also, there is no way to print an envelop.
This app is the worst
Misssillygem09 on 5/18/2018
I don’t need a parent’s permission. I need to to fix this app or delete it
Charlie McButton on 5/18/2018
The app was the best ever, however a after the last few updates it became the worst ever, after I work on my document it suddenly crashes and deletes all my work!!!!! That’s so disappointing, please fix all that bugs.
This app is bull crap
hshgddbbf on 5/17/2018
I had written out a whole 4 page essay and I go to save it and the app decides to keep ask me to sign into my Microsoft account so I do and it took me to another page and when I came back my whole essay was gone! So dissatisfied and disappointed
Almost, not quite
Helena Madsox on 5/17/2018
The word app has some great features that I’m still disappointed that Google doesn’t have, which makes it the optimal choice for essays or really professional looking work in general. However, the settings to select things are completely messed up, the backspace key is really slow, and you can’t select a sentence without the whole application freezing and making you unable to type. So yes, this is okay, but I would suggest that you either find a way around using Google or just use Word on a computer.
I used to love it
YoursTruely12 on 5/17/2018
Word has always been handy in helping me with typing papers and other projects on my phone; and it was great because I could do basic things like type and edit and save in basic fonts like Times New Roman and all for free. But now you need a $100+ subscription to even edit files. For someone like me who is a broke student that only has one needed device, this is complete crap. And I’m bitter so I’m giving it one star.
Sign in ERROR!
Wooooo Traaaaaa on 5/17/2018
In the mobile version. I always need to sign in EVERY SINGLE TIME I open the app. The iPad version is great. But the iPhone version need to be fixed!
Practically unusable thanks to bugged typing
sbaggins on 5/16/2018
I have tried all the suggested fixes but Word still insists on capitalizing every other “i” word it comes across and dropping random letters out of different words each day (today it was “wither” — now corrected as “withr”). Honestly, the app is kind of unusable now since I have to keep most of my attention on the screen and whatever stupid mistake the app is going to make instead of letting the words flow. PLEASE fix this bug soon, I’ve loved Word for years and I don’t want to lose it.
Rf smi on 5/16/2018
Nothing works correct. Templates don’t open after saving. Drop down menus don’t work etc
soblow43 on 5/16/2018
Really good for typing and no problems
Night Goth on 5/16/2018
The fact that you have to create an account now just to use word is the new line of low, what ever happened to being able to use word with out having to create account all people want to do is type and pick a font size then print. Waste of time
I have a question
Mrs. Loki on 5/15/2018
Is this like google docs where you just sign in with your email and get it anywhere? Or is it just on your phone or wherever you download the app?
Missing documents
tamlag on 5/15/2018
So for some reason I had to redownload the app to my phone and it wiped out all my documents saved in my iPhone folder. Idk why or how to get them back
katnissmadness4 on 5/15/2018
Great app! May the odds be eVeR in your favor!
Excelente aplicación muy útil para trabajar a
Mr@iron on 5/15/2018
Excelente muy fácil de usar p
Needs a little more work
Drew012 on 5/15/2018
I wish we had the ability to open 2 word documents, documents linked to the cloud don’t always refresh with updates on other devices.
"If you want to do this is $10"
Luckycharm7878 on 5/15/2018
Before the new update you wouldn't need a suscription. Now they make you pay one if you want to edit or basically use it. I liked it before because it was free. Now I won't pay $10 because I don't use it as much.
I. Can’t. Sign. In!!!

Page Borders
Ijcasado on 5/14/2018
I really like MS Word for my iPhone and iPad Pro! It is very useful. I like the user friendly tabs and good options it comes from. To make it perfect for me, I would be great to have page borders options like MS Office Professional 2016. I have MS Office Professional 2016 on my Windows Laptop but when I create a document with a page border and then when I transfer it to my iPad 365 Office Word app the page border doesn't appear on screen and doesn't print either. Can you please help? Thanks!
Thank God for Word!
ngibson1015 on 5/14/2018
Thank God I could have word on my iPad because I cannot deal with any of the Apple me dumb but whatever! I NEED MY WORD!!
Love it!
Soymulata25 on 5/13/2018
It’s excellent to have word as an app is the best and easy way to write is made very easy👍🏼✌🏼😘
Corrupted files won’t recover to previous saved version
Scriptureholic on 5/13/2018
Lost 4.5 hours of work on a 14,000 word file because whole file just disappeared because corrupted. Wouldn’t even roll back to a previous version. Can I give this negative stars for how bad I hate and want Microsoft to die because of that?
simply me 15 on 5/13/2018
It’s simple word processing.
Nice to have but Buggy
Kairaca on 5/13/2018
I really like being able to create and edit letters on my multiple devices but this app has frustrating bugs that they still have not resolved and new ones pop up. The other day, one of my letters was not updating properly over all my devices and there is still major issues with voice dictation problems. I’ve also had multiple sign in issues. I don’t know what’s going on with Microsoft, but they need to get their act together.
