Much improved

Numbers is really rather good, it is excellent on a Mac. The iOS version has the functionality but inevitably it is going to be harder to use on an iPhone than on a laptop or desktop.

The iPad version presents you with an unfamiliar interface compared to a desktop spreadsheet but once you take time to learn how to use it, it’s great.

I missed the categories feature of the prior Mac versions which were a brilliant alternative to pivot tables, whilst that has not returned the improved sort functions are very versatile and easy to use.

Whilst I have large financial models using multi cell array formulas in Excel, I have found that with a bit of thought and digging deep the function set on Numbers is very powerful indeed.

Numbers has the feature of multiple tables per sheet as it’s normal method of operation and it’s integration with the Mac world means that I have moved all my financial modelling to numbers and it’s good and I find easier to use and can display information in a clearer fashion.

There is little that Numbers cannot do if you dig deep into the function set and use a little imagination, accordingly I will let office 365 go when the current annual subscription dies.

I am confident that we will see further improvements in functionality that keep its inherent simplicity and accessibility to newcomers and then I will give five stars !

Update - yes, we have the number keyboard back, but the guts of my review remain - it's still SO clunky to use for formulas, dates, single tap to action in a cell...I've added one star for the return of the number keyboard. Please try harder!

Another update - still a poor experience for me as a long time user. Time to change to another app, I think.

Just to echo the other reviews, this update has made data entry a complete and total ball ache. What was one tap (with some adjustment if required) on a date field, is now a convoluted hit and miss mix of guesswork and luck.

Single tap in a cell and start typing to replace the content (currency entry) now no longer works and I have to delete the contents of the cell before I can type a new value in. Just adds time it takes to edit data. Why? All the 'cell appropriate' keyboards have now gone and every cell gets a qwerty entry with extra taps to open a sub menu for options. Seriously, who sat down and thought this was great UX?

I can only hope that Apple do something VERY quickly to put things back how they were, or they will lose a user to Excel. At this stage I will suffer the single conversion of my spreadsheets in order to get the UX I was used to.

Such a shame. Massive fail, Apple.

Bring back Apple Pencil support

The latest update has removed the ability to use the Pencil for navigation and only allows drawing. I don’t know why you’d want to draw on a spreadsheet but at least give the option to turn it off. There’s probably more people out there who want to use the pencil for navigation and selecting cells rather than draw. The pencil is a powerful tool Apple, please don’t just force us to use it for drawing and nothing else. For the iPad Pro to be a true desktop replacement a precision pointing tool is needed and that is what the pencil provides. Don’t go back on your steps when you attempted the same with iOS 9.3 to remove navigation. Why is the pencil only supposed to be used for drawing? It’s capable of so much more and makes the iPad Pro far more easier and comfortable to use when using it for navigation. Please bring back support and give the option to disable drawing as I don’t think anyone will need to use the drawing tools more than navigation.
