Always have those documents you need

With this, the hassle of not having documents in the right 'place' is over. Other apps I've tried are costly, require accounts or constant internet access to work. Plus, emailing everything back and forth just gets so tiresome - especially with limited internet. So I have always ended up coming back to this app.

I've found it works well with both a computer and tablet, working with word files throughout the day. The accessibility is so freeing. I can write whenever, wherever I want now.

However, I would definitely like to see more formatting options eventually being put in place. Also, I've found that you can't go back to a previous form of the document which has, on occasion, caused problem but nothing too major.

Not great

I am struggling to use this app on iPhone 6S. The app crashes when trying to open a document and when it does open, the pages are black and unreadable.
When typing the pages seem to jump all over the place and the font changes for no reason. This constant movement of the pages induces nausea.
There is a lag between pressing a letter on the phone keyboard and the letters/words appearing on the page.
Renaming a file is a struggle with having to make a copy of the file and then rename it, editing just seems to be all over the place and I was thinking of moving to docs instead of word but would need to be able to rely on using docs before making the switch.
Hope the developers read this and sort the problems.

The Handy and the Hassle

Great way of storing information online, along with Google Drive, you can have easy access to documents and information, without the need to carry lap tops etc around.
The collaboration feature of Google documents is real innovation so that multiple people can edit the same document at the same time. Do this live in Google Hangouts if you want to discuss the changes as they are happening.

The downside is the lack of compatibility with Microsoft Word, so when you want to work on documents from other users who send or expect to receive information in Word, you can’t rely on it professionally. Using photos is also an issue as you don’t have the same capability as in Word.
