PC on Mobile 🙌🏾

I first downloaded this app in vain, thinking that it might be useful for merely reading my assignments and nothing. I thought it would be impossible to do more intricate things on this app; like paragraph formatting, page breaks and that was just the lesser of my thoughts. Boy, was I wrong.

My housemate asked me to read through his thesis and edit where it’s necessary, so I knew the only effective way to do this on Microsoft Word would be through the use of Tracking Changes. Track Changes shows and makes note of each change on a document. YOU CAN USE TRACK CHANGES ON THIS APP! Above and beyond that, you can do almost everything that you can do on MS Word PC on this very app! What impressed me more is how your mobile Word app and your PC Word can work in complete sync.

There’s so much more I could say about this app. If you’ve read this far, look no further. This is the best Word Processing Application on iOS (the GOAT on PC too 🤷🏾‍♂️).

Word on the iPhone

The application is remarkably new function on the iPhone. I did not think I would like it on the iPhone since most of the other dictation and what processing programs on the iPhone is well hampered.
Even this review was done with the iPhone dictation ability. It makes editing documents so much easier than having to sit and type and we type and fat finger almost half of what I wanted to say. But you know this works for you, you want me to try to yourself because it wants word usage, documentation needs, and editing needs are different. When I consider all the other options when using word, my usage of word is probably at the lower end and I still have a lot to learn before I use all the functionality.

Good App but...

It would make it even a better app can have a lasso button to capture your writings with the pen and shift that around, enlarging and shrinking it, etc., the same functionalty as in OneNote... It is handy to use Word in videos explaining concepts to students; fortunately Word does allow you to write with the pen on an Ipad in the Word document, but you can still not shift your writings around as explained above... also the undo button makes the cursor jump to the left margin everytime you use it, very irritating...
