Mobile View Disappeared?
sbaggins on 2/16/2018
Mobile view on Microsoft Word has been a godsend on my iPad mini 4 and so I was devastated when I opened it today to discover that it’s missing. Please return it as quickly as you can, developers! It made using Word on a smaller screen much more accessible and streamlined.
Some tools have disappeared with the latest update
luism1randaa on 2/16/2018
Learning tools, print layout, and mobile view have disappeared from the iPad version with the latest updated. Makes it frustrating to work in split view.
Works great!
Shawn Desai on 2/16/2018
As usual Microsoft eventually gets it and delivers. It is really great to use office apps on iPhone. I have been using mostly word and excel. Now they integrate well with one drive on iPhone. This was essential for me as I can have all my docs in one place and use them across apple and Microsoft platforms, a key to productivity. Way to go . . .
App Is Buggier Than Ever
Scribble7189 on 2/15/2018
It was functioning as it normally would until I updated and that’s when things went haywire. I was not able to use the web layout option(it would react to being pressed but otherwise nothing happened). My document would remain zoomed out which is problem since I don’t have the best eyesight. The worst offender is this weird glitch where the screen 'splits' when you turn your phone horizontally where you can try and use one 'half' of the screen. These bugs need to be fixed as it made trying to use this app impossible. I would normally rate it at 3.5/5 when its functional despite missing a lot of key features on phones but as of now, these recent glitches lowered it to 1/5.
Printing and emailing large file
13bct on 2/15/2018
Large file with pictures. 20mg Cannot get it to email or print!!!
Installed Fonts No Longer Work
trahajje on 2/15/2018
Fonts installed with AnyFont used to display fine. Now I get the following message: “There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font.” Files with installed fonts will not open. I tried it on my iPad and iPhone 7+. Once again, there is a new version with the same problem. I’ll uninstall it and try it again later. Not planning to renew Office 365 until it’s fixed.
Chris17317 on 2/15/2018
It’s simple
Good app
Rburt292929 on 2/14/2018
It’s saved me on a lot of assignments in school.
Don’t even try it/ You will be a bug test for MS
loveJava on 2/14/2018
I am so disappointed in the payment I made for this app. It is just awful. You can’t do so many things without standing on your head, and others you just can’t do. I can not remove borders from tables. MS has a lot of nerve using us as bug testers.
slashton on 2/14/2018
So far I really enjoy this application
VoiceOver Documents
Mrs. Weems (VoiceOver Artist) on 2/13/2018
Using Word allows me to create price sheets, testimonial statements, business plans and proposals all on the go.
Love this App
Hmmmmmmph!!! on 2/13/2018
I spend many hours a day using this app. I am a writer. Having this on my iPhone 8 has enabled me to continue my writing projects anytime anywhere. I find that I use this Word App more than the actual program. I am constantly away from my computer, so this has been an incredible and powerful tool for me. I use OneDrive to store files between my phone, iPad, and computer, so I am always using the most up to date of my files.
Can't find old feature
starliteparade on 2/13/2018
There used to be a feature that allowed you to add a first line indent on a paragraph in previous versions. That option does not seem to be available anymore even when I use the search function to look for that tool. Its been inconvenient to type reports without this feature since the last update.
Cannot sign in
Blyn5 on 2/13/2018
I cannot sign into my account from the app 😒
Version 2.10
S payne on 2/13/2018
After this update the “hide keyboard “ function is not working as it should-it’s not active initially and you have to do some gyrations before it activates
Not Fully Functional, Even with Office 365 Supscription
Oh30 on 2/12/2018
This is a very basic app for limited use of creating Word documents. No grammar check. No easy way to format page or paragraph. Saving these documents has by far been my biggest problem. No matter what I use: iCloud, Google Drive, OneDrive or the actual iPad, it takes too long for the document to save correctly. You can tell when there is no actual time stamp on the document. I notice this once I am ready to upload the document as an attachment to email, within an online class forum, to a job application or any other institution that may require me to upload or attach the document. Always says there’s not data in the file and therefore cannot be attached. Hours later, it magically saves and becomes a real document with data. This is with a strong internet connection be it using cellular data from the device or wi-fi, it doesn’t matter, it is always a pain. I thought I would be able to do more but this app is so basic, I may as well just use Google docs.
Works well enough
Carlov Lluviani on 2/12/2018
Works really well, not as good as the PC version obviously but if you can set it up on a PC then write on the go works fairly well.
Review on the Word
woody 3815 on 2/12/2018
Being that I’m an old timer that’s trying to catch-up with the rest of the world I’m trying to learn Word. I would appreciate it if it were a little easier. I’m not stupid but I get a little confused doing Word.
No longer works with Dropbox?
Miles12638393 on 2/12/2018
Just updated to this newest version. When I opened it up, my Dropbox account was removed and will no longer let me sign in. It's truly amazing how something as trivial is this has been screwed. Microsoft Word is now more useless than ever.
Saved my grade so many times
Bambicane on 2/11/2018
So glad I have this on the go. As a junior in college, I am grateful to have access to Word at my fingertips! My laptop is currently broken so this is a blessing! Thank you 🙏🏿
Waelder on 2/11/2018
Great way to have easy access to all your files between your laptop and cell phone.
Differences between IPad and Desktop
fishgirl13 on 2/11/2018
The features that do exist work well. However, there are several features available in the desktop version of Microsoft Word that are not available in the iPad app or are not easily accessible. These features include but are not limited to: 1) the navigation pane 2) being able to save imbedded images as un-imbedded image files. 3) several add-ins are not yet available for the iPad including add-ins for citation software like Mendeley
Really good but one ☝️ problem
love🎧💕hayah on 2/11/2018
Every time I go to another app or close Word my whole writing deletes
Good for most things
Sylvercz on 2/10/2018
Update 2/18, I really like the new feature that lets me view documents in mobile mode, fitted to the screen. Much more handy, as I can now use it on my iPhone. I use this app a lot, the free version, and it’s good for most things. The full version can do more, but it’s prohibitively expensive. Still, all things considered, a good app. Wish they’d offer a better deal on the full version.
Not full tool to use
StupidJs on 2/10/2018
The app is not in full function to use. Not that much convenient.
printing variations
Lisablueeyes96 on 2/10/2018
I prefer using half sheet paper, but when I print. the top margin is extremely broad regardless of how narrow I put the margin. I took a picture of this as proof, but I cannot paste it in the email via iPhone.
Cannot recommend for science/math students note taking with Apple Pencil
Born-2-Discover on 2/10/2018
When writing equations and math symbols, there is some sort of movement that occurs after writing that moves the stroke from where I put it. So frustrating trying to write equations or mathematical symbols. Cannot recommend for anything critical. Okay for simply taking notes, hence the 2 stars. I’ve not found a way to turn this jump feature off if there is one. If there is, I will gladly change my review.
ethan monkey on 2/10/2018
Best for homework on the go
Cudoluawcqzulospux on 2/10/2018
I TRY to use this app on my iPad for school. Currently doing my English class essay and I need to jump around a lot, but when I need to write something down this app takes FOREVER to open up. Hate it. If I wasn’t in such a bind, I would stop using it.
CeddeeGee on 2/10/2018
Word on my phone can’t get any better! Great app
Microsoft Word
Hullihen on 2/10/2018
This is an excellent tool for creating word documents on your iPhone. You can copy and paste or create a new document.
Psherps on 2/9/2018
The best
Love it but I wish ...
Srescr92 on 2/9/2018
I do love this app however, with recent updates I have found it difficult to type. For example, I'll be typing something and just as I space to continue I find myself somewhere else in my document completely, or I'll change the font for the entire document but half of the document still remains in the default font. I don't really have much problems with this app but I think that is because I do not use it as frequently as others may.
PinkHen17 on 2/9/2018
Very convenient
Life saver
buckgavin on 2/9/2018
I do not own a laptop or home computer.. this app lets me do my homework for college by speaking into the microphone
Justificado y teclado
polveira on 2/9/2018
1) No me permite justificar el margen del documento. Sólo me deja ponerlo hacia la derecha, a la izquierda o centrarlo, pero no justificarlo. 2) No pude escribir este mensaje usando el Smart Keyboard del IPad Pro, tuve que desconectarlo y usar el teclado virtual la pantalla.
Do not like
Popchips2015 on 2/9/2018
I do not like that I have to subscribe to the suite of products to use. I liked it when you just bought the product once and had unlimited access to it. This is why I’m an Apple User.
In A Pinch, Word on My iPhone Works Well
dechris_mode on 2/8/2018
Working on any small screen presents it’s challenges but I’m impressed with the way the Word interface operates. Just when I think a feature wouldn’t be included, I find it tucked away in a menu. So far so good with the iOS version for the iPhone 6s+.
Useful but unpredictable
Andy Koval on 2/8/2018
I use Word a lot and having it on an iPad is better than not having. However, Word sometimes loses files, and all your work may be lost when the network is unstable. That’s just happened to me and that’s unacceptable!
Word not reliable and too complicated
Aryeh@ on 2/8/2018
I bought the emote Office 365 suite. After I installed it on my PC and iPhone, Word began to suffer From many bugs. I cannot open Word docs I create in the iPhone app and store in One Cloud. More disturbing perhaps, is that when I downloaded Office 365 to my PC it deleted my essential main calendar, which I can now see onky on my IPhone. Microsoft support tells me to trouble shoot with Apple and Apple tells me to troubleshoot with Microsoft Office. This is absurd. Additionally, I have spent at least 72 hours of my life trouble shooting with Apple for the most part and recently Microsoft. I will not so this anymore. If your new refrigerator breaks (and is under warranty, the mfr sends a REPAlR technician to your home or office. If the two largest companies in the US [world] want me to do their work, they must pay me. It is time for the Federal govt and the states to regulate these tech behemoths as public utilities. calendar shared between wiped out my iCloud calendar from Outlook as well.
A great app to have!!!
Diamondmel1 on 2/8/2018
Overall, I have been very happy with the word app. It is a huge improvement over ones that I was using previously. When sending documents from this app, you can be sure that they will arrive to their destination in a readable format. It has a ways to go to be as good as word on a computer. It does get glitchy at times and that can be frustrating.
I feel really disappointed with Microsoft office.
Jihye ladyyyy on 2/8/2018
I just updated software and downloaded Microsoft office on my iPad pro. And keyboard is not working. Is it because of bugs? I have no idea.
Just conveniently Fabulous

Copy Paste
Sophia critic😡 on 2/7/2018
I was on Microsoft Word typing my homework and I tried to copy paste something and it deleted my entire page of work. After that it transferred my first page to my second page and would not let me write on the first page. Then after THAT the text box started to glitch my page when I tried to use it and when it finally started to work it deleted itself.
Reliable and Easy to Use
Maire231 on 2/7/2018
Since I’ve used Word for years at work, being able to use it at home has been helpful. I didn’t have to learn how to use another suite of applications to be able to provide professional documents from my home office. Thank you, Microsoft.
Yancarlo1961 on 2/7/2018
Work Exelent on my iPhone
Vibrantn02 on 2/7/2018
Would work better on iPhone if it didn’t have so much lag.
