Fantastic, but.......

Love word, have done since i first used it back in the 90’s, just as good as ever, and now for the but.....

Once upon a time you could set your default font with which ever one took your fancy, i like times new roman for my writing, then when they took that option out, you could click on a recently used font, ok, it worked. Now you are given a default font, Calibri, i think, which i don't like, but now i have to scroll through the list every time i want to write, its a pain. I have emailed them through the app about it and all they have done is change the icon style on the iPad, useless.

It really cant be that hard to add this option.

Five stars until later updates

Word has always been buggy on Apple platforms. One keeps hoping the upgrades will fix the bugs but mostly they just introduce new features, often at cost.

The latest incarnation of Word for iOS pushes the idea of getting a subscription in order to edit and save. I was about to delete it when I noticed I could still create, edit and save a Word document by creating one in Dropbox. Probably there’s a way to do it without forking out more cash to Microsoft but I haven’t seen it yet.

Word is a must-have program for many, including myself, yet I’ve delayed getting latest upgrades and subscriptions entirely on account of not knowing whether to do so will fix existing bugs (several upgrades haven’t) or even make them worse and risk existing document formatting.

There would be a good argument for several levels of Word, just as there is now, only better defined. On my Macs I want a fully featured Word that doesn’t crash, is reliable over time and between versions, and with good export facilities.

On my iPhone I just want a simple program that I can write texts in Word format and export or share them quickly and easily with my Macs. Once they are on a Mac I might want to do more formatting but at the moment just having a reliable app that isn’t full of bugs or bugware would be good. I’d pay for it, but I won’t pay for a subscription unless I can see it will do what I want.

Solid with room for improvement

I only just realised this today: Word now supports multiple instances, meaning you can review or edit two docs at once! This is a massive leap forward in terms of productivity and is one less argument in favour of laptops and PCs. Unfortunately many key features are still missing.

What would take things up to the next (of several) level(s) is the introduction of mouse/trackpad support and perhaps improvements to existing features — some add-ins simply don’t work e.g. Mendeley Cite — or addition of Desktop-only features e.g. Split Window. This would make it a lot easier to transition from Desktop to iOS as and when needed without significant constraints.

For the above reasons, I give Word 3/5 stars because we know what MS is capable of and yet there is a feeling that development of their iOS product is being somewhat throttled. Is this version of Word much better than the web app? Not really.
