Ratings and Reviews
Hard to understand complaints
Reading through the reviews of this app it is refreshing to see negative as well as positive comments. As a macOS user for over 20 years I have registered my share of complaints about MS products and policies but some of the complaints listed in these reviews are simply untrue or the result of user error. Personally after resigning to the fact that Word is and probably will remain the benchmark and industry standard for word processors I find this app to be the perfect portable companion to MS Word for macOS. There simply is no better alternative.
Adding to this previous version review I would like to say that having cut my teeth on the iPhone using this app on an iPad is a dream in comparison. I don't use office 365, I store and share my documents via One Drive which is now available to the Files App in iOS 11 making moving documents from iCloud to One Drive and vice versa a breeze. If any of the naysayers can find a better alternative to this app I'd like to hear it.
Nightmare, genuinely idiotic
Avoid 365 if you possibly can. Have taken out an account which I cannot access. At all. Login & Password not recognised and dead-ends. I know the logins are right, they’re in 1Password. Reached out to MS “Support”. 45min in a circular & pointless chat. First point of content at “Support” is an Accounts & Billing contact, not Tech. So-called Tech Support didn’t do anything, just went round and round, didn’t seem to know what they were doing. Eventually referred me to Elevated Support. Great, I thought. But no, Elevated Support is not a fast track to a specialist fixer who knows what they’re doing. It’s just a link to a page in a chat where a previous customer five years ago details how to take out an Elevated job ticket which might eventually get attended to by a human. But get this. In order to take out said Elevated job ticket and get in the queue, the only way to do this is to take out a SECOND Microsoft 365 account in order to triage the first one that I can’t get into. What, then I end up with TWO accounts in which my credit card is trapped somewhere?! Furious about this. Am time poor freelancer who needs to update Office for work, and am literally hands tied can’t figure out what to do. AVOID this product unless you have absolutely no choice. Stupid interface that eats headhours. If I could give it zero stars and still lodge this review to warn you all, I would. Microsoft, if you’re reading (!) please reach out and HELP!
Needs a freshen up
Word has been great in general, but I switched to pages for an assignment and I just fell in love with the sleek design. It also has more templates. Word really just needs to update its interface to make it a bit sleeker. Also more keyboard hotkeys would be great.
Another problem which brought it down to 3 stars, is its lack of support for the hold space bar and drag feature Apple has. It is had to explain what happens but I will do my best. Two colons appear, one grey and one blue. The blue one is where you’d expect it to be, but for some reason there is another one, way to the side, and you have to drag the grey one to where you want it, making the blue colon useless. I know that was probs confusing, but just try it yourself and you will get what I mean. Please fix!!!
Also, please add more drawing features that are on OneNote or make it easier to insert PDFs in general into word, but especially from OneNote.
