Give me a hint!
seswan10s on 7/15/2018
Only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars was how long it take to figure out where to find hints for normal routine excel functions on my iPad Pro.
Hacktavist on 7/15/2018
I'm growing as a person a stronger faster keener hardened person I was made for the tough times
Super convenient!
mchlstvn on 7/14/2018
Works flawlessly for everything I need it to do for an app version.
Totally awesome!!
Awesome--100% on 7/13/2018
👍 awesome! Helping me keep track of many different things.
LadyDaka on 7/13/2018
LOVE the iPad app! It makes everything so accessible and easy to learn on. People who aren’t fluent in Excel will probably do just as well or even better than people who are when learning how to use this version. There are some annoying things when it comes to using the app in landscape vs portrait mode (sometimes buttons merge when switching to portrait that just don’t really make sense to merge) but other than that, I’m a grateful that such a necessary tool is free through the App Store.
Easy to use
Binbilal on 7/13/2018
I love it has most the features of the desktop.
Stupid App! Don’t download
=BigNick= on 7/12/2018
What a stupid app this is. I wanted to test it out just to see how it works. After downloading it they want you to sign in to use it. FYI I have licensed MS office, excels on every pc I own for my business. They should disclose that you will need to sign in before using. I’d give it 0 stars if I could for being deceiving. (Removing App)
The hardest part
Bob of Odessa on 7/12/2018
The hardest part to figure out is how to save and where. Other wise it’s easier to use than “Papers”.
iCloud Drive Files Buried under “More”.
JDALaRose on 7/9/2018
It’s July 2018 and Excell still has only middling support for files from iCloud Drive / the native Files App on iOS. Why is iCloud Drive buried under the “More” option in the Open and Save dialogs?
Stev0279 on 7/8/2018
Very compact! Love it. Getting used of it
Mghane81 on 7/8/2018
It’s very good and useful. Thanks
It’s about time!

Paid for Monthly Subscription for Access
Scarlett Hearted on 7/5/2018
Yet, can’t even do basic functions like customize the value for error bars? Also unable to use side scroll
Skeet A on 7/4/2018
I’m always on the move for work and having Excel for my mobile devices has saved me so many times working in the field and editing on a plane between job sites.
Quick business resource
Grabba Deb on 7/4/2018
This app is great for reliably tracking business transactions on my phone.
D Ryon on 7/3/2018
Some functions doesn’t work, but it is okay otherwise
Love it

Love it
Mediocre Customer Service
Sled14 on 7/3/2018
Subscription randomly works on iPhone yet not iPad, even that’s what I pay for. Connect to customer service and get asked the same questions over and over when it should be a simple fix. They then spam call me over and over when I have bad reception, the reason I tried to fix the issue via chat. For a huge company like Microsoft I would expect CS to be at least decent and not have subscription issues like this
As if JULY, you need 365 subscription to edit
TrueLies29 on 7/3/2018
Used to be you could edit excel files in your phone but now it asks for a subscription to office 365. I don’t mind MS making money but at least let people know when you make such a big change. Numbers, here I come.
I want to stay signed in
Purple Foxglove on 7/3/2018
It’s very inconvenient to have to sign in every time I want to work on my file.
Time saver!!!
Redfishin on 7/2/2018
I’m in commercial sales. I built a spreadsheet that generates a buyers order for my customer without going back to the dealership.

Five stars
kaa2132 on 6/30/2018
Best aap and much improved and need mor updation same as excel usually we have on computers.
Constant log out
Kobusiinge on 6/30/2018
When I first got this app it was great. Now it perpetually logs you out. At first it always automatically saved my work, then after updates every now & then I notice my most recent info input vanished. Very annoying.
Great App! Has Lots of Excel Functionality!
LFFlakes on 6/30/2018
I would highly recommend this app for persons who are on the go, and need access to Excel. It has a lot of Excel capabilities! Works beautifully!
Joseph Hanson on 6/30/2018
Great handheld functionality. All the features are there. Cloud service works as it should. A no brainer if you must use Excel on the go.
It’s excel
thesurg3on on 6/30/2018
Nothing to complain about. It’s excel!
plptpcp on 6/27/2018
Love this app! I just would like to find an easy way to back up, I’m using on an IPad, which is my computer, wish you could use Dropbox or something similar to back up.
Put it back!!!
Kevin P. James on 6/27/2018
STOP the updates! Put it back the way it was!!! I’m no longer able to duplicate!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me sirve mucho para la contabilidad y es practico
Jimmacleod on 6/25/2018
It does everything that I need.
Slow to Load
kilimanjarobaby on 6/24/2018
Way too slow to load Word and Excel.
Mr. Catsmack on 6/23/2018
Far superior to Google Sheets. No surprises there. Google “Big Brother” wasn't even born when Excel was developed. Don’t drink the Google Koolaid ... use Excel.
Copy Formulas
littleda85 on 6/23/2018
I am unable to highlight and drag a cell in order to copy the formula multiple times.

Love Excel. Why do I have to sign in every day!?!?
MeowMix nomnom on 6/21/2018
I love Excel. I love synching from PC to iPhone. PLEASE HELP fix sign in issue!!! Every time I use it I am prompted to sign in. 2 step verification and all. Please help! Ain’t nobody got time for that!
sultan102 on 6/21/2018
I like it on my phone, easy and convenient to use
Cosmdf on 6/20/2018
I used to rely on this app for work. I’m glad my company (4000+ employees) has decided to not go with Office 365. I cannot type a formula unless I wait 3 seconds between each letter while Microsoft “guesses” at what I am attempting to do. Even then, formulas that used to work now generate an error. I guess it is still good for a grocery list, but nothing complicated.
Excel version 2.14
Tiki-man 45 on 6/20/2018
Updated my device to the version above and now I am required to purchase a subscription to use it. Left a review about this issue lasted last year and was able to fix the problem. With the last update on June 11 the same issue surfaced. If Microsoft can fix this I will change this review.
Very useful
ElAsmaay simohamed on 6/19/2018
I don’t remember myself having a phone without this app

Excell cannot get the new updated file
Boethius52 on 6/18/2018
Saved a file in Excel on the 14th to Dropbox. Updated the file on home PC on the 15th and then again on the 16th. Try to read it in on the 17th, see the old 14th version. Tried "Discard changes", tried double-tapping on the app and shutting it down - more than once. I opened the new file in Dropbox, it is the right version; told it to open that file in Excel, but Excel opens the old version. Did that twice. Be real sure of what versions Excel shows you.
MSFT acct requires repeated sign-in
MandAandM on 6/18/2018
