Ratings and Reviews
Word not reliable and too complicated
I bought the emote Office 365 suite. After I installed it on my PC and iPhone, Word began to suffer From many bugs. I cannot open Word docs I create in the iPhone app and store in One Cloud. More disturbing perhaps, is that when I downloaded Office 365 to my PC it deleted my essential main calendar, which I can now see onky on my IPhone. Microsoft support tells me to trouble shoot with Apple and Apple tells me to troubleshoot with Microsoft Office.
This is absurd. Additionally, I have spent at least 72 hours of my life trouble shooting with Apple for the most part and recently Microsoft. I will not so this anymore. If your new refrigerator breaks (and is under warranty, the mfr sends a REPAlR technician to your home or office. If the two largest companies in the US [world] want me to do their work, they must pay me. It is time for the Federal govt and the states to regulate these tech behemoths as public utilities.

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.
Slow, glitchy, and weird comment feature
As a book editor, I use Word for work, and I love that I can use my Microsoft account to toggle between my computer and device, making editing on the go super easy. Except for the fact that the app is super slow and glitchy, especially when it comes to the comment feature. The comments in the app used to appear exactly as they do on a desktop, in little bubbles. If I wanted a new comment, I’d just create a new bubble. Then for whatever random reason they changed the formatting of the comments so that they appear in a list on the side of the document. Every time you start a new comment, the app opens the entire collection of comments in the document, and if you have a lot of them (which, as an editor, i always do), it takes a minute to open every single one. Worse, the list COVERS the text, so you keep having to open and close the comments. And sometimes, for no reason whatsoever, the program stops allowing you to comment. I spend more time trying to get the app to work than I do editing. I don’t understand why they can’t make the app function exactly as the desktop program. If there was another way to edit on the go, I’d abandon Microsoft altogether.
