Ratings and Reviews
It’s Word, man.
Great app. Business and academic apps like this are sometimes harder to navigate on iPads or smart devices because you can’t see all the icons like you would on a laptop screen, and the layout is a little different, but it still does mostly everything you’d need for work or school. There are certain things that you can’t do unless you pay and upgrade to premium, like getting unlimited text colors, but that’s pretty much what you get with every app these days. The app still lets you be cheap and get away with making word documents without premium if you don’t want all the bells and whistles included, and it’s still functional, so I don’t personally mind not having premium. You can get by without it if you don’t want to spend the extra money-shoutout to all the broke college students out there and all the kids whose parents won’t let them upgrade- but if you’re willing/have the means to pay, hats off to ya. All in all, it serves its purpose and does what it’s supposed to, it’s not glitchy, and it’s pretty easy to use. I like it. So, that’s my two cents in the subject. Try it out, see what you think, and you can always delete it I guess. :)
Love/Hate relationship with Word on iPad
I’ve used Word for years, and I am really good at it and take advantage of the really cool features that other word processor programs lack. The desktop version of Word is amazing!! However, Word on the iPad is mediocre! For instance, I utilize fields and cross reference data between different parts of a document, which is a huge time saver for me. Unfortunately, I’m unable to take advantage of this feature on my iPad, which means, that I must work on a laptop or desktop computer to really get the benefits of using Word in this day and age. Also, I really don’t like the automatic saving feature because I frequently use templates that I do not want to overwrite while working and the automatic saving feature makes this impossible. Please fix this! I wish there was a way to select, in the settings, a “discontinue automatic saving” option. If Google Docs had these features, I would likely make a permanent switch to that program because I appreciate working seamlessly with others. Also, as one who works in schools, I see that high school students have been trained in Google Docs and they aren’t familiar with using Word. I see a need to get with the times and I’m not seeing Word advance it’s features; however, as long as the above options are only available on Word, I will be sticking with them. Please, make these crucial features available on the app version of Word as well!
Review of Microsoft word
Well I use Microsoft word at work, the mobile version is vastly inferior. If it were free, I probably couldn’t complain. But, if you want to get the capability of redlining documents and other important work-related actions, you have to purchase the subscription. This is where the trouble begins. Microsoft support is terrible. Several times a year the program won’t work and tells me I need a subscription. I’ve spent hours on the phone with Microsoft since I first purchased this program. There’s some sort of company disconnect between their accounting department and mobile services. This needs to be fixed.
Regarding the applications performance, at best it’s OK. It tends to be slow, saving a document while you were working on it is not as straightforward as it should be, and if you want to dictate, you better proofread twice. Many of the desired editing features are not available in this mobile application. Formatting is next to impossible and many many other features are not available. While I don’t think you can expect 100% duplication, iPad cost more than most PCs, have ample memory, and should be capable of handling all of the commands necessary to do a competent job of preparing a word document. And you should not have to have an external keyboard with your iPad to perform the tasks. Bottom line, The program is livable, but not particularly likable.
