Keeps asking me to rate it
by Beetlebrox on 2021/02/24 17:05
Microsoft, the app keeps asking for me to rate it. So I did.
They can be even better
by Juliocesar0113 on 2021/02/23 14:02
Good thing that they unified all the office suites in this application. I am comfortable with the news, however, I believe that even more functions can be added. For example, the table of contents in word, or allow adding bibliographic references as in the computer version. Greetings.
365 for iPad

Is it so hard to have an app with a signature features?

Really is beyond me that is 2021 you still need multiple apps just to sign a non legal document.
Don’t replace the individual Excel, Word, etc apps yet
by uinazi on 2021/02/22 19:29
Seems to function ok, but its integration with iPadOS is not good. With my file, possibly an “older” format (97-2004 worksheet), in the Excel app you can go into Files app, find an Excel file, tap it, and Excel opens. With Office app, you do the same and it just opens the Office app, not the file. If in the Office app you browse to the file and try to open it there, it says the file is damaged. You’ll have to remove the Office app in order for the individual app to integrate the way you expect. Yes its an old format but many companies have templates that are that old, for compatibility reasons (for example). And the individual Excel app has no problem with it. So not really fully baked yet.
Full fidelity and quick sharing
by TomMoen on 2021/02/22 16:09
There are a few things to really like about this app; 1) it delivers all your docs from a tenant and makes them quickly and easily available 2) full fidelity of Office files on your iPhone 3) email a doc with a single click enabling rapid collaboration. This is what Office on iPad should have always been. Fantastic.
Goodbye Google Apps & Gmail
by David Oehler on 2021/02/22 08:57
I’m tired of many years of limited features of Google Apps, lack of security, and the world’s largest add revenue company snooping in my personal inbox and invading my privacy and selling it to third parties. With many of today’s employers going “all in” with Office 365 & Teams, I’ve decided to go “all in” with Office and Outlook for my personal apps, email and data. With each website account I change from Gmail to Outlook, I’m once again taking back my privacy and personal freedom. I invite you to do the same. After 30 years of experience working in technology, Microsoft puts security and privacy first, while Google puts ad revenue ahead of your privacy and security. More companies trust Microsoft with their corporate active directory security than any other provider, which is the most important security service.
Meh
by EmMarie111 on 2021/02/22 02:10
Word in the app keeps changing my text font back to calibri when I don’t want it and there is no way to change the default.

by domgee77 on 2021/02/21 09:26
The apps works. But one major drawback: no split view. The standalone apps support that, this one does not.

It is now better
by ESman9 on 2021/02/20 23:22
With the new update, this app is now more valuable and useful, now I don’t need 3 different apps (Word, Excel, PP) its all here as if I was using that specific app. It also has a PDF converter and multiple other actions *if you have a subscription. Highly recommend this if you use these apps daily.
App force closes itself
by Rajujggg on 2021/02/20 20:51
The app forces itself to close when I am trying to sign a pdf document
Does not support linked documents must remove
by Onfus on 2021/02/20 04:59
I receive emails with links to one-drive files, pdf files that must be viewed in the browser. Having the app installed throws me into a loop between this app and one drive but never actually opens. Deleting the app solved the problem. Thus if you use linked PDFs, do not install this.

Why
by Shsull on 2021/02/18 16:20
If the included apps are still available, I’m having trouble understanding why we need this app. I’ve worked with this type of software since VisiCalc in the late 70s. Even at my advanced age, I’m still capable of knowing which application to use for a specific purpose. As for Lens, well, you can keep it.
Almost there. No multiple instance mode yet.
by zaglul5 on 2021/02/18 13:30
I love using office apps on my ipad. I think they are well designed. And i love using office on my phone once it incorporated the other apps (word,excel, ppt). So naturally I was really excited when the ipad version of office was updated to include the actual apps. But there is one major flaw. It doesn’t support multiple instances yet. You cannot (at the moment) open office more than once. You can do side by side with a different app, but you cannot but office side by side with office. So if you want to use only office, you cannot look at a word document and an excel file. You can’t have 2 word documents side by side. You will need to use something else to accomplish this. Thankfully, the individual office apps (word, excel, ppt) don’t have this problem. I can open as many word apps as my ipad can handle. So I will keep using those for now, and I am sure a future update will incorporate this functionality into office.

Do not delete individual apps quite yet...
by Tony_AZ on 2021/02/18 03:43
This app forces single screen for any one document. No way to have word on one side of the screen and excel on the other side.
Missing multi tasking
by Big Erg on 2021/02/17 17:37
You cannot multi task with app. If you want to Word files open you need to open one in office and the other in word. Cumbersome.
This what I expect from Microsoft
by Midwilshire on 2021/02/17 16:47
Thank you for putting such a product at the App Store. It is magnificently amazing.
Lacking features of standalone apps
by Farts of Mothra on 2021/02/17 12:27
I’m very, very confused why this was released without support for multiple instances when this is something I can already do in the existing Word app. No ability to open 2 documents in split view means there is no reason for me to keep this app at the moment.
Awesome , do add one note and outlook 365
by Ashk28 on 2021/02/17 03:32
Was waiting for one such app from Microsoft
Add multitasking/multi instance
by zapeters90 on 2021/02/17 02:32
This works very well, but the inability to have two instances open at the same time to multitask between is a deal breaker. Very happy to switch to this if that is added!
It can’t find my Microsoft Account
by Beerguy52 on 2021/02/16 22:27
I use the Office app on my PC. Downloaded this app with the anticipation that my existing subscription would cover it. But no, the app does not recognize my Microsoft Account. Bye, bye. Have deleted the app.
Unnecessary, all the apps are available separately
by Dr BigJim on 2021/02/16 21:17
This yet another example of Microsoft going backwards with design. The apps are available separately and is still an example of poor design and really lacks needed functionalty. Apple still has the best office productivity suite for iOS! Just like Microsoft to deliver subpar performance and a design that totally misses the mark. Microsoft should quit while they are behind as they are never catching up to superior design and functionality.
What I was thinking?
by bert1262 on 2021/02/16 20:21
I was just trying to give it a try, big mistake, trying to sign in even with an account, is a nightmare, bye bye Microsoft.
Make the app free for iPads

All your app are free for android devices but they are not free on iPads! Why???
Fatal flaw, no google drive access
by Bahurd on 2021/02/16 17:54
I wanted this to work great but for some reason the developers decided to leave out access to Google Drive when adding storage accounts!
No indication in description that an Office 365 subscription is needed
by allan_vcr on 2021/02/16 17:49
More stand-alone function is needed to save and edit documents. Microsoft should charge a few dollars for the original download and describe exactly what will work and not work. I’m deleting the app because simple view of Office files and some editing function are possible through other methods that are free.
Open more in one time
by Chnagggg on 2021/02/16 15:38
Why can’t I open more Office in one time like Word and PowerPoint
Cannot multitask!!!
by KrunchDown on 2021/02/16 15:21
The individualized apps can finally open side by side, and even open multiple instances (ie 2 excel worksheets) on the iPad, but this all-in-one takes a huge step back. You can only have one Office document/instance open at a time. Not even a Word document in split screen with am Excel sheet. They may fix this later, but for now, “Delete App”
So nice!
by gordonross on 2021/02/16 14:54
This is a great app, inn my prefer it over the separate versions. Also, I can reminisce about using ClarisWorks back in the day. :)
Still needs work
by Northeast PR on 2021/02/16 13:08
I noticed when opening a Word document, that the text was improperly formatted and condensed. However when I opened the same document in the stand alone Microsoft Word app, the text appeared normally. I will keep using the stand alone Microsoft Word app until these formatting bugs are addressed.
Love the idea, needs work on iPad
by JayJay2425 on 2021/02/16 13:07
I love the idea of having a unified app on iOS/iPadOS. I was very excited to see that this app has finally made its way to iPad. I’m someone who doesn’t necessarily need the full power of all 3 standalone apps, and they take up storage more than anything else. A unified, lighter app is just what I was looking for. However, without multiple-window/multitasking support, this app cannot serve as a suitable replacement. If this feature is added, this app would be perfect.

Substandard quality for iPads
by itsSoldier on 2021/02/15 17:22
There is no purpose achieved in publishing a product that is not optimized for iPad OS. Please such moves bring down the image of Microsoft. The Product Manager and the Marketing Manager should be advised accordingly.

The app is hard to deal with on the iPad. It’s clearly designed for phone use only. It doesn’t take the whole screen. Also, documents I have written on with my Apple Pencil and saved were somehow deleted

Not bad but needs better signature integration with outlook
by BinoWasHere on 2021/02/11 01:21
I’m still not sure about the benefits of this app. I understand that Microsoft is trying to integrate the separate office applications in one app. Unfortunately this didn’t address my issue. I needed a way to allow users to sign pdf or other documents from within Outlook. This doesn’t do that. If you open an attachment in outlook, you have to save to your OneDrive first then open the app again from within OneDrive. Still a bit cumbersome. Unfortunately we are not allowed to use other third party add-in’s for signing pdf documents. Have to stick to the office only universe.
Horrible

Office for iOS
by Pathoftruth on 2021/02/06 15:15
Thank you Satya Nadella!!! The best Microsoft Office experience is on Apple hardware! Ok, well maybe I just like the Apple design language, but MS does a terrific job combing what we are familiar with on Office on the iOS platform. This app is fantastic, combining several apps into one and integrating with OneDrive and OneNote! 5 stars, no complaints, must have, especially for MS365 subscribers!
Simple between platforms
by Joaznit2win on 2021/02/05 12:30

by wlh2 on 2021/02/03 03:52
What is this? It’s shows up like an iPhone app for iPad. I click the expand, it’s does indeed expand, but is not sharp, just magnified with aliasing galore, and doesn’t even fill the screen. The individual office apps are nice. This is complete garbage.
Does not fit screen on iPads
by de.double.u on 2021/02/02 06:40
I got this app on my iPad so I could do work at home. It would be great if it wasn’t the size of a phone... I mean, can they not make it fit the screen like every other app? If that issue is fixed, I’ll give it five stars.

Terrible issues, and no iPad friendly version available.
by BHRice on 2021/01/29 18:16
Office files, be docx, xlsx, or wutever, created via 365 on my Win10 desktop are read-only on both iOS and Android, causing great annoyance when continuing working on my mobile devices. In addition, for some unknown reasons, virtual keyboards’ trackpad mode of iOS’s builtin inputs stop working after I tab backspace in any 365 app on my iPad. This makes correcting words really painful. But for some reason, trackpad mode still works fine with Google’s GBoard inputs (but GBoard has its own issues reducing my productivity). For a paid subscription app suite, these productivity-hindering issues are by no means acceptable.

Microsoft never ceases to surprise in the stunning low quality of its products. Nothing about this product is intuitive. Screen real estate is abysmally small, to prioritize mobile phone use. But who actually uses their phone to do excel or powerpoint work?

limited benefits...
by josey4628 on 2021/01/21 13:41
While this takes up less memory on my device, it doesn’t feel like it makes things easier or faster when using Office. If I have individual apps on my home screen, I can start the needed workflow faster than opening Office then looking for Word or Excel. Also a true iPad version is needed for me to get meaningful work done. I can zoom in on my iPad, but lots of screen space is wasted, and again, there is no advantage than using the individual iPad versions of MS Office.

Initial reactions to Word on an iPad
by Lyman Gallup on 2021/01/19 14:22
I have perhaps 30 years of experience with Word but this version is not very intuitive and I am quite disappointed. Usage is not seamless across devices. Perhaps I made an error in installing it but I am using an iPad with a large screen and the software doesn’t recognize it and thinks it is a phone. Very disappointing since no questions were asked about my device during the installation.

I WAS enjoying this app...
by LyssaBot on 2021/01/15 19:16
I wanted to transfer from a different note taking app and thought I'd finally found the one. Until the past few days when I've gone to use it and it immediately force closes itself upon opening. This is frustrating as I have notes written there that don't exist anywhere else and I can't lose them. I've tried turning my phone off and on again, I even uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Nothing has helped.
Lagging

... why not release a version for iPad? This app is great on iPhone but having separate apps for the iPad is inconvenient. Honestly, they should replace the Mac/Windows apps with this one too. That’s how good it is. But I can’t give it 5 stars as an iOS app because it’s only for iPhone which is as asinine as WhatsApp, Robinhood, Instagram & others being only for iPhone.

Goodbye Google Apps & Gmail
by David Oehler on 2021/02/22 08:57
I’m tired of many years of limited features of Google Apps, lack of security, and the world’s largest add revenue company snooping in my personal inbox and invading my privacy and selling it to third parties. With many of today’s employers going “all in” with Office 365 & Teams, I’ve decided to go “all in” with Office and Outlook for my personal apps, email and data. With each website account I change from Gmail to Outlook, I’m once again taking back my privacy and personal freedom. I invite you to do the same. After 30 years of experience working in technology, Microsoft puts security and privacy first, while Google puts ad revenue ahead of your privacy and security. More companies trust Microsoft with their corporate active directory security than any other provider, which is the most important security service.
Useful (when it works), but slow and very limited
by MaxAgHammer on 2020/06/14 01:42
I don’t know if this app by itself is better than having the three separate Office apps installed, but it takes up considerably less space. I use this almost exclusively for Excel documents, and this app is an adequate editor for very simple things like adding new data entries and viewing attachments received via mail or shared via cloud based file services. However, this app is EXTREMELY SLOW to work with and its interface feels claustrophobic and fiddly on an iPhone 8 screen. Maybe it’s better on an iPad Pro, with the larger display and more powerful CPU to run it? I don’t even try to do anything so complicated as enter formulas or format cells when I’m using this app… like I said, the UI is not great. A word of warning: if you rely on Dropbox to store Office documents that you frequently work with and update via this app, you will tear your hair out in frustration at the way Office turns into a complete basket case trying to deal with Dropbox storage. I don’t know whose fault that is, Microsoft or Dropbox, but it’s infuriating and will happen to you even when doing the simplest things to documents retrieved from Dropbox folders. It gets even worse if you’re using a VPN… be ready for lost work and mondo pain. At least everything works even slower over VPN connections, so you have that to look forward to.
Not for me
by JOK3R B on 2020/02/23 14:04
I like the idea of a all in one productivity app, however this just doesn’t work for me for a couple of reasons. Number one is the horrible built in Lens scanner. I had Lens before and quickly moved away from it once I discovered Evernote’s Scannable. I scan a lot of documents for work and work a lot with PDF’s so having a well performing scanner is essential for me and Lens simply doesn’t work well enough. I had hoped it had been upgraded for this app and would perform better but it’s the same as the stand alone version. The other PDF related problem is the lack of ability to mark up a PDF. Yes you can sign a document but I often need to add text, boxes or arrows to a PDF and those functions are not available here. The other major downfall is the lack of iPad support. I work a lot on my iPad and need the tools I use to be available there as well. I could see this maybe becoming a great all in one tool in the future with some tweaks but for now I’ll stick with Evernote, Scannable, Docs and Pages.
Almost there. No multiple instance mode yet.
by zaglul5 on 2021/02/18 13:30
I love using office apps on my ipad. I think they are well designed. And i love using office on my phone once it incorporated the other apps (word,excel, ppt). So naturally I was really excited when the ipad version of office was updated to include the actual apps. But there is one major flaw. It doesn’t support multiple instances yet. You cannot (at the moment) open office more than once. You can do side by side with a different app, but you cannot but office side by side with office. So if you want to use only office, you cannot look at a word document and an excel file. You can’t have 2 word documents side by side. You will need to use something else to accomplish this. Thankfully, the individual office apps (word, excel, ppt) don’t have this problem. I can open as many word apps as my ipad can handle. So I will keep using those for now, and I am sure a future update will incorporate this functionality into office.
Useful on iPhone, annoying in iPad
by jzriot on 2020/10/17 19:44
So, I love O365 and I use it for work nearly every day. While I’m a fan of the office app on my phone and find it easy to find things I’m looking for (or have opened recently), i can’t help but feel rather annoyed at the “mobile version” of the app on the iPad. I find myself daily checking the App Store for updates and looking for an update for iPad. If this app had a meaningful iPad user interface (that is, using the ENTIRE SCREEN), then this app would get 5 stars for me. Let’s get that iPad update!
Why isn’t this universal at start?
by Dan62103 on 2020/05/09 14:12
I’ve had an iPad since day 1, gen 1. I have waited ever since for Microsoft and Apple to meld their strengths and have a good workflow for office on IOS and cloud files. After reading about this app’s release I was hopeful this was the one that would become the solution. And then after downloading realized...it’s prioritized for phones and does the lame compatibility version for iPad. I don’t work in the tech industry, but would bet money that an analysis would show people using office on mobile devices are largely on tablets and less on phones. Are that many people really making presentations and excel files on phone screens? This needed to be a universal app or prioritized for iPads first and then have a phone version. Feels like a no brainer and failure for now for me. Hoping iPad prioritization comes soon.
New Office app confusing in opened / created Word files
by Mark Verizon customer on 2020/11/20 12:55
Since the installation of the new Office app, if I go to OneDrive on an iOS device and open a Word file or create a Word file, what interface shows up in the opened or created file isn’t Word app or a Word interface. Instead this “Office” app opens. It’s very confusing. The Office app interface is very basic, and even the font graphics are simplistic. Since I have discovered this quirk with the “Office” app, and since going to support didn’t give me an easy way to address the issue, I cannot rate this new Office app very high, only one star low. If I open just the Word app, it seems to work just fine. So today, to try and avoid the Office app doing this, since I already have Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps installed and working well on iOS devices, I removed the Office app and dropped my rating to one star.
Call it “Office Lens Plus”?
by Apps as I see them on 2020/02/20 18:32
The Office app for iOS as of February 2020 seems to be lacking a lot of the power promised in the various videos from Microsoft floating around. It looks like this app was rushed out before it was finished. One video shows the ability to create a PowerPoint from an outline, but try finding the “Create Outline” button in this version. Office Lens already has some great capabilities - such as scanning a whiteboard or making a PDF - and this app does those too. And while it will get those images or scans over into a Word, Excel, or PowerPoint document, that’s hardly bringing them all into one place in any easy way. I hope Microsoft will continue to develop this into what they’ve promised. But at this point, there’s not enough in the app, and what is there isn’t quite integrated yet.
Not bad but needs better signature integration with outlook
by BinoWasHere on 2021/02/11 01:21
I’m still not sure about the benefits of this app. I understand that Microsoft is trying to integrate the separate office applications in one app. Unfortunately this didn’t address my issue. I needed a way to allow users to sign pdf or other documents from within Outlook. This doesn’t do that. If you open an attachment in outlook, you have to save to your OneDrive first then open the app again from within OneDrive. Still a bit cumbersome. Unfortunately we are not allowed to use other third party add-in’s for signing pdf documents. Have to stick to the office only universe.
Great All-in-one
by TrueReviewer02 on 2020/05/14 14:32
Great call by Microsoft to add their Office Trio (Word, Excel and Power Point) into one app. I have an older 16GB phone, and Storage is at a high premium. With this app, I can write papers, work on spreadsheets and presentations without taking up space with three separate apps, saving me precious storage space. This is a great app for working on projects in places I can't bring my laptop, or if one of my other family members is using it, I can still be productive from my phone. Pair this app with a bluetooth keyboard and you have a winning combination!
I’m super happy with the new Office app!
by apfitzg2 on 2020/02/20 05:13
This is great! The update is very efficient for me. I work between Word and Excel quite often for research. To be able to open, copy, and use actions quickly when I’m doing something quickly (like emailing my boss about statistical results) is essential. Office does this very well and I’m very happy with Microsoft listening to customers and combining all of the essentials into one. I also really like the option to convert an image to Excel table or image to text. These small features really make me love it.
Elegant and well done
by Atlg8or on 2020/05/13 12:32
This app is an example of something I didn’t know I needed but once I began exploring and using it, I love it. Very elegant and simple solution, with access to all of the key use cases. Microsoft continues to delight under Satya Nadella and this app is another example of a well-executed solution that not only meets needs but delights in its simplicity. As MS continues to improve some of the bones (lens/pdf scanning and editing, etc.) this app will only continue to get better. Well done Microsoft and Office app developers. Love it.
Definitely Recommend
by salad345 on 2020/04/15 15:32
I live for this app. It is so much easier on the app then on the browser. Especially since I have to do school work from home, it’s just so much easier and less stressful. The only thing I would correct is when you go into office, I wish more of the little icons were there that you could go to like word or PowerPoint or teams and stuff like that. But otherwise I definitely recommend this app. Five stars
Forces phone/tablet choice
by Thee Madam Bomb on 2020/02/21 18:53
Unless it’s a bug, the app seems to make you choose between optimization for a phone or tablet. I installed on my phone first and then on the iPad and it won’t resolve to the iPad screen properly. (There’s also a message generated saying as much). Beyond that super-annoying issue, I don’t really see how this is an improvement over the individual apps I use (Word, Excel & PPT) on these devices. It seems like a re-skin, not a re-think.
Microsoft Office Application
by NewJack Sixty on 2020/07/30 10:23
The app is great; but limited. The pandemic locked me out of university, community college, and public library computer labs which put a cramp in me posting on my Facebook page. I wondered if Microsoft had an Office App in the App Store? To my surprise; there was! The App allowed me to continue posting from my IPhone SE; which have its difficulties. I yet, continued on. My problems were the inflexibility of the app to work on the small surface of my iPhone. Frustrating as it is, I continue to use it, the App gets the job done; which is a plus!!!
Update broken!
by muy bien 13 on 2020/11/19 09:09
Ever since I updated the lens/document scan feature is broken! I can no longer scan to PDF or I get an error. Please make save to PDF the default saving option, nobody wants photos of long documents they need to send as one file. Also, if I forget to change it from photo, I want to be able to go into media, open the scan, tap edit, and re-save as a PDF but it’s missing! I have to completely rescan.
I would like more capabilities to video chat while working with coworkers
by Charlen_21 on 2020/11/16 17:52
I this new world of business Office needs to update for the students at home and the work mom at home. We needed to be able to do more on our smart phone and on our laptop. The YouthTube videos need to more better meaning while in any windows apps the video needs to clearer and so bugs with the coding are off as far a integrating with the latest smartphones
Love Having my Desktop Wherever I’m At
by Dbblair on 2020/03/13 02:11
I decided to check this out when it popped up on my computer when I was in Excel, and I’m really glad that I did. Frequently, there are things that I have laid out on a spreadsheet that I want to show my husband, and now, instead of waiting for an opportunity to interrupt what he’s doing to sit him down at the computer, I can just quickly pull it up on my phone. Great app!
So far so good, but...
by Wasting My Thyme on 2020/08/04 01:59
Would be even better if (A) there was a privacy option that allows users to set a password/pin, or use Touch ID; and (B) if there were better integration between this and cloud provider apps such that each app could be protected with a password while also allowing the user to open documents from any cloud app via Office as a centralized point. Right now password protection for iOS OneDrive, Google Drive, etc. has to be disabled to open and edit documents.
limited benefits...
by josey4628 on 2021/01/21 13:41
While this takes up less memory on my device, it doesn’t feel like it makes things easier or faster when using Office. If I have individual apps on my home screen, I can start the needed workflow faster than opening Office then looking for Word or Excel. Also a true iPad version is needed for me to get meaningful work done. I can zoom in on my iPad, but lots of screen space is wasted, and again, there is no advantage than using the individual iPad versions of MS Office.
Was good, but an update made it worse.
by Sebas421 on 2020/04/28 00:44
There's a microphone icon when viewing a document in Mobile view that won't go away. It's so annoying. That and when coming back to a document, I no longer have the option to go where I left off. When working with smaller documents, it's not a problem. But when I have a 456 page document that I'm working on and I go back to the middle to edit and exit, I have to find my way back when before there used to be a little previous badge I could click on. Ease revert and give option to hide the microphone icon.
Love the user interface! My life as an interior designer is going to be simplified!
by Ahhhhh!!!! Cheese on 2020/02/20 15:56
It’s so easy to navigate and have everything you need for working with the documents on my phone in one place. I often need to respond quickly, by photographing the drawing, making changes on the go, before it was a pain. I can now sign documents, create PDFs, and use office lens, all in the same place!
Works great.....on my iPhone
by Dj Dominox on 2020/07/21 22:42
I feel like this is some sort of a joke for using Office/Microsoft products on Apple devices. This app works great on my iPhone but on my iPad that I have a keyboard for, not so much. One the screen is small meaning its for iPhones and not iPads. I now have to download 5 different apps that I could have used just one, please fix this ironic mistake so I can work in one app in peace.
Microsoft Office 365 Word
by aapdisney on 2020/10/07 17:20
This started out as a great tool, but lately has been a huge headache due to the fact that after a short period of time typing there are constant delays in words appearing and punctuations, spaces and words are being added randomly. Nothing has helped to correct the issue. We have tried deleting and reuploading it and that hasn’t helped, we checked our internet and that isn’t the issue, we have even tried other devices with the same thing and it happens there too. It’s very frustrating especially when it is the main tool for my schoolwork.
Absolutely incredible !
by Devspace on 2020/02/19 16:42
Whoever came up with this idea of providing a unique seamless experience deserves much more than an appreciation. The app provides stunning experience with far less complexity compared to managing one for text and graphics needs. I am sure the app will get more revisions and tweaks down the lane , but I am very impressed with what Microsoft has done here. Outstanding!
Full fidelity and quick sharing
by TomMoen on 2021/02/22 16:09
There are a few things to really like about this app; 1) it delivers all your docs from a tenant and makes them quickly and easily available 2) full fidelity of Office files on your iPhone 3) email a doc with a single click enabling rapid collaboration. This is what Office on iPad should have always been. Fantastic.
Excellent but...
by Anonymous #1212 on 2020/12/06 05:18
I love this app because it’s all Office apps in one but I use an iPad and this app is for iPhone and I can still download it but it has the iPhone versions of Office which are a little bit harder to work on iPad, and also the keyboard is big which makes it more harder to work in iPad. This app is excellent but the only problem is that it’s for iPhone and not for iPad, I would like a lot if you make it available for iPad.
Microsoft Disappoints.
by XPortagoX on 2020/12/03 16:12
I am aware that the separate apps are optimized for iPad, but I wanted to get this to get to my things all in one app. Seeing that’s not possible anymore, it’s better to just get the separate apps for iPad that are actually optimized. I use an iPad mini and I saw that Office was here as an iPad app—but it’s not. The “iPad” app that is supposed to be for iPad users is literally the iPhone app. Your only option to make it fit your iPad’s screen is to use the enlarge button on the bottom right corner of your screen. Why did you get lazy? The Office app still has a lot of potential but it’s ruined for iPad users.
MAKE iPAD VERSION PLEASE
by Krazazn on 2020/02/26 22:14
I use this app on my phone all the time, but hope they will make one for iPad os. But please allow multiple instances. I currently reference a spreadsheet and write about the data in a word document on separate apps, but I am worried that I will not be able to have these two files open in separate apps and will have to close a file, open the other, the. Reopen the original. It can be great!
Love the idea, needs work on iPad
by JayJay2425 on 2021/02/16 13:07
I love the idea of having a unified app on iOS/iPadOS. I was very excited to see that this app has finally made its way to iPad. I’m someone who doesn’t necessarily need the full power of all 3 standalone apps, and they take up storage more than anything else. A unified, lighter app is just what I was looking for. However, without multiple-window/multitasking support, this app cannot serve as a suitable replacement. If this feature is added, this app would be perfect.
This is great!
by Cody Barnett on 2020/02/24 13:16
I can’t believe how well this was done! It’s easy, clean, and the functionality is all there. Three apps + all in one! Suggestion - it would be great to be able to setup a default save location for scan to pdf. Also, the default file name should not be date (as the second file overwrites first).
Office for IOS
by AlphaGhost84 on 2020/02/19 22:22
It’s hard to get work done without Microsoft Office, and it is convenient to have everything all in one app. Office is not perfect but it is very good, especially on a mobile device. Some of the negative reviews are from over 6 years ago. Office for IOS has come a very long way since then.
Lost my 40 year account and messed up my working desktop with Office 2010
by Flying Padre on 2020/08/18 14:11
Loaded new Office 365 and it blocked access to Office 2010 and I yet to have accessed my old email accounts at all after a week of hours trying Wish I never waisted the money I didn’t need One Drive but Windows 10 update installed it too. It earned a 1 star from me and now only an old laptop works yet with Office 2010 and my new laptop is worthless for my old email coming in it only puts out via Windows 10 on Edge and nothing on Outlook 365 but some long outlook with numbers behind i🤬🥵😡🤯
Office for iOS
by Pathoftruth on 2021/02/06 15:15
Thank you Satya Nadella!!! The best Microsoft Office experience is on Apple hardware! Ok, well maybe I just like the Apple design language, but MS does a terrific job combing what we are familiar with on Office on the iOS platform. This app is fantastic, combining several apps into one and integrating with OneDrive and OneNote! 5 stars, no complaints, must have, especially for MS365 subscribers!
PLEASE OPTIMIZE FOR iPadOS
by Shaw.Nomura on 2020/04/13 14:40
I can’t give you a 5 star review for two reasons: 1) I use Office 365 APPS exclusively on my iPad Pro. You NEED TO provide a separate iPadOS app or optimize this one to be used on the iPad. 2) Please improve the Excel parts of this app especially when an iPadOS version is created. It would be awesome to get a version that rivals the MacOS version of Excel. Many of us us the iPad as a Mac/PC replacement. These two improvements will truly make this the perfect APP for the mobile office user.
Amazing office app for ios
by Mrmcpistole on 2020/08/17 04:49
Use to use word but needed a spread sheet outline that word couldn't use and discovered this app. Must say...... amazed. They need this on pc. Like all the main Microsoft platforms that can open all the different document styles and that students, and employees use bundled in one? Why wasn't this a thing prior when i was in high school.
Will not save a single scan
by SirFliesALot on 2020/11/06 05:04
This app is a waste of space. It will allow you to view your one drive and that’s about it. If you scan a document, it won’t save it. If you open a document, it won’t successfully open. If you create a document, it’ll bring about yet another error. App seems cool in concept but if it doesn’t work then it is just a clunk of an app that does absolutely nothing in terms of work flow. It is just an app taking up space that allows you to do what the OneDrive app already lets me do, view what I have saved in OneDrive.
It is now better
by ESman9 on 2021/02/20 23:22
With the new update, this app is now more valuable and useful, now I don’t need 3 different apps (Word, Excel, PP) its all here as if I was using that specific app. It also has a PDF converter and multiple other actions *if you have a subscription. Highly recommend this if you use these apps daily.
Microsoft Office Suite 365 app
by hsgshgy on 2020/05/09 18:17
I love this app! This app is so easy for me to use! It is extremely convenient! I can type up a letter on my phone using this app, transfer it to a PDF and sign it if I need to. I can save my documents to the files app on my phone! I love it! Technology today is awesome!
It works
by jeny clark on 2020/05/22 15:21
Since quarantine is here we need this for school so it’s really helpful and there is this feature where you can just speak and it writes down by itself just that at first it was tricky that’s why I gave it 4 stars ⭐️ and I had another review and it asked me to write one again and again I can’t find my old one like they delete it or something
A little effort might help
by yandere or tsundere on 2020/04/01 06:43
This app is not working for IPad, I understand that you made it for iPhones, but please make it for IPads as well. Secondly most of us are used to the structure/texture of these apps (word,excel,PowerPoint and others) I understand that it is a little different on IPhones but the arrangement is a little too different and difficult, I hope you change it accordingly
Only 4 stars because...
by Rezzenonne on 2021/01/07 15:54
... why not release a version for iPad? This app is great on iPhone but having separate apps for the iPad is inconvenient. Honestly, they should replace the Mac/Windows apps with this one too. That’s how good it is. But I can’t give it 5 stars as an iOS app because it’s only for iPhone which is as asinine as WhatsApp, Robinhood, Instagram & others being only for iPhone.
My experience with Microsoft Word on IPad
by Lynatam on 2020/11/13 11:30
I am a very recent user (about a week!) and am yet to figure out a couple of things, such as creation of folders, inserting a password on a document or change on an imported document. The Apple Apps (Pages, Numbers, ...) have a link to getting started (some kind of Manual for guidance on how to navigate the App). I don’t know if there’s an equivalent - it would be very helpful. Thank you.
Pinned items do not sync properly
by rgoble4 on 2020/12/10 01:28
This seems silly, but if I mark a document as pinned on the iPhone and then open/edit that document on my Mac, I expect the pinned status to carry forward. Yet over and over again I have to remark my frequently used documents as pinned on my iPhone after editing them on my Mac because somehow the pinned value is lost. It makes me angry every time. I’ll leave this at 1 star until this is fixed. How hard is it to sync one Boolean value? This is happening with OneDrive!
Great App
by Del Skinner on 2020/04/28 22:56
This is a great app my only complaint is that it restarts occasionally when switching back and forth from other apps and you have to re-open the file you are working on. Very frustrating but fix that and it’s 5 star worthy.
No disappointment
by Drew.C1985 on 2020/09/25 12:19
Having this on my phone makes life 100 times easier. Just being able to sit down at the computer and everything I did throughout the day is there.
LOVE IT - Quick notes is a great feature
by Greg P. on 2020/02/20 05:46
Love it. 9/10 right out of the gate. I love the two panels and the (+) action button. Surfacing Notes to the top is 💯 The Actions hub rules too. Man, really psyched. Wonder if there’s a widget. Uh, for improvements, adding different view modes, i.e., folder tree, gallery, for files would be rad.
Undependable file system, bad as MS-DOS
by Mac Since 1985 on 2020/02/23 20:01
You can no longer be sure if a file is saved or where, or if when you try to open it again, you’ll get the message that it is in an unsupported location. The new combo app, and also the latest versions of the iOS stand-alone Office apps, now will insist on an invisible and non-Mac and non-intuitive filing system. The feeling is all-too reminiscent of the old pre-Windows MS-DOS days. The guiding principle seems just to force-sell their 365 subscriptions. Not for me.
Great on iPhone, but NOT iPad
by X.Static on 2020/03/05 21:21
Love having everything centralized on my iPhone for lightweight use, but it's unbelievable that Microsoft shipped this without optimizing for iPads, which is where most mobile Office users will get any kind of serious work done. 4 stars for iPhone, but 1 star for iPad, and that's only because the app opens and works, albeit looking terrible. You shouldn't have shipped this app without optimizing for iPad as well.

Keeps asking me to rate it

Microsoft, the app keeps asking for me to rate it. So I did.
They can be even better
by Juliocesar0113 on 2021/02/23 14:02
Good thing that they unified all the office suites in this application. I am comfortable with the news, however, I believe that even more functions can be added. For example, the table of contents in word, or allow adding bibliographic references as in the computer version. Greetings.

Don’t replace the individual Excel, Word, etc apps yet
by uinazi on 2021/02/22 19:29
Seems to function ok, but its integration with iPadOS is not good. With my file, possibly an “older” format (97-2004 worksheet), in the Excel app you can go into Files app, find an Excel file, tap it, and Excel opens. With Office app, you do the same and it just opens the Office app, not the file. If in the Office app you browse to the file and try to open it there, it says the file is damaged. You’ll have to remove the Office app in order for the individual app to integrate the way you expect. Yes its an old format but many companies have templates that are that old, for compatibility reasons (for example). And the individual Excel app has no problem with it. So not really fully baked yet.
Full fidelity and quick sharing
by TomMoen on 2021/02/22 16:09
There are a few things to really like about this app; 1) it delivers all your docs from a tenant and makes them quickly and easily available 2) full fidelity of Office files on your iPhone 3) email a doc with a single click enabling rapid collaboration. This is what Office on iPad should have always been. Fantastic.
Goodbye Google Apps & Gmail
by David Oehler on 2021/02/22 08:57
I’m tired of many years of limited features of Google Apps, lack of security, and the world’s largest add revenue company snooping in my personal inbox and invading my privacy and selling it to third parties. With many of today’s employers going “all in” with Office 365 & Teams, I’ve decided to go “all in” with Office and Outlook for my personal apps, email and data. With each website account I change from Gmail to Outlook, I’m once again taking back my privacy and personal freedom. I invite you to do the same. After 30 years of experience working in technology, Microsoft puts security and privacy first, while Google puts ad revenue ahead of your privacy and security. More companies trust Microsoft with their corporate active directory security than any other provider, which is the most important security service.

by ESman9 on 2021/02/20 23:22
With the new update, this app is now more valuable and useful, now I don’t need 3 different apps (Word, Excel, PP) its all here as if I was using that specific app. It also has a PDF converter and multiple other actions *if you have a subscription. Highly recommend this if you use these apps daily.
App force closes itself
by Rajujggg on 2021/02/20 20:51
The app forces itself to close when I am trying to sign a pdf document
Does not support linked documents must remove
by Onfus on 2021/02/20 04:59
I receive emails with links to one-drive files, pdf files that must be viewed in the browser. Having the app installed throws me into a loop between this app and one drive but never actually opens. Deleting the app solved the problem. Thus if you use linked PDFs, do not install this.

Why
by Shsull on 2021/02/18 16:20
If the included apps are still available, I’m having trouble understanding why we need this app. I’ve worked with this type of software since VisiCalc in the late 70s. Even at my advanced age, I’m still capable of knowing which application to use for a specific purpose. As for Lens, well, you can keep it.
Almost there. No multiple instance mode yet.
by zaglul5 on 2021/02/18 13:30
I love using office apps on my ipad. I think they are well designed. And i love using office on my phone once it incorporated the other apps (word,excel, ppt). So naturally I was really excited when the ipad version of office was updated to include the actual apps. But there is one major flaw. It doesn’t support multiple instances yet. You cannot (at the moment) open office more than once. You can do side by side with a different app, but you cannot but office side by side with office. So if you want to use only office, you cannot look at a word document and an excel file. You can’t have 2 word documents side by side. You will need to use something else to accomplish this. Thankfully, the individual office apps (word, excel, ppt) don’t have this problem. I can open as many word apps as my ipad can handle. So I will keep using those for now, and I am sure a future update will incorporate this functionality into office.

Missing multi tasking

Lacking features of standalone apps
by Farts of Mothra on 2021/02/17 12:27
I’m very, very confused why this was released without support for multiple instances when this is something I can already do in the existing Word app. No ability to open 2 documents in split view means there is no reason for me to keep this app at the moment.
Awesome , do add one note and outlook 365
by Ashk28 on 2021/02/17 03:32

Add multitasking/multi instance
by zapeters90 on 2021/02/17 02:32
This works very well, but the inability to have two instances open at the same time to multitask between is a deal breaker. Very happy to switch to this if that is added!
It can’t find my Microsoft Account
by Beerguy52 on 2021/02/16 22:27
I use the Office app on my PC. Downloaded this app with the anticipation that my existing subscription would cover it. But no, the app does not recognize my Microsoft Account. Bye, bye. Have deleted the app.
Unnecessary, all the apps are available separately
by Dr BigJim on 2021/02/16 21:17
This yet another example of Microsoft going backwards with design. The apps are available separately and is still an example of poor design and really lacks needed functionalty. Apple still has the best office productivity suite for iOS! Just like Microsoft to deliver subpar performance and a design that totally misses the mark. Microsoft should quit while they are behind as they are never catching up to superior design and functionality.
What I was thinking?
by bert1262 on 2021/02/16 20:21
I was just trying to give it a try, big mistake, trying to sign in even with an account, is a nightmare, bye bye Microsoft.

No indication in description that an Office 365 subscription is needed
by allan_vcr on 2021/02/16 17:49
More stand-alone function is needed to save and edit documents. Microsoft should charge a few dollars for the original download and describe exactly what will work and not work. I’m deleting the app because simple view of Office files and some editing function are possible through other methods that are free.
Open more in one time
by Chnagggg on 2021/02/16 15:38
Why can’t I open more Office in one time like Word and PowerPoint
Cannot multitask!!!
by KrunchDown on 2021/02/16 15:21
The individualized apps can finally open side by side, and even open multiple instances (ie 2 excel worksheets) on the iPad, but this all-in-one takes a huge step back. You can only have one Office document/instance open at a time. Not even a Word document in split screen with am Excel sheet. They may fix this later, but for now, “Delete App”
So nice!
by gordonross on 2021/02/16 14:54
This is a great app, inn my prefer it over the separate versions. Also, I can reminisce about using ClarisWorks back in the day. :)
Still needs work
by Northeast PR on 2021/02/16 13:08
I noticed when opening a Word document, that the text was improperly formatted and condensed. However when I opened the same document in the stand alone Microsoft Word app, the text appeared normally. I will keep using the stand alone Microsoft Word app until these formatting bugs are addressed.
Love the idea, needs work on iPad
by JayJay2425 on 2021/02/16 13:07
I love the idea of having a unified app on iOS/iPadOS. I was very excited to see that this app has finally made its way to iPad. I’m someone who doesn’t necessarily need the full power of all 3 standalone apps, and they take up storage more than anything else. A unified, lighter app is just what I was looking for. However, without multiple-window/multitasking support, this app cannot serve as a suitable replacement. If this feature is added, this app would be perfect.

Not bad but needs better signature integration with outlook
by BinoWasHere on 2021/02/11 01:21
I’m still not sure about the benefits of this app. I understand that Microsoft is trying to integrate the separate office applications in one app. Unfortunately this didn’t address my issue. I needed a way to allow users to sign pdf or other documents from within Outlook. This doesn’t do that. If you open an attachment in outlook, you have to save to your OneDrive first then open the app again from within OneDrive. Still a bit cumbersome. Unfortunately we are not allowed to use other third party add-in’s for signing pdf documents. Have to stick to the office only universe.

Office for iOS
by Pathoftruth on 2021/02/06 15:15
Thank you Satya Nadella!!! The best Microsoft Office experience is on Apple hardware! Ok, well maybe I just like the Apple design language, but MS does a terrific job combing what we are familiar with on Office on the iOS platform. This app is fantastic, combining several apps into one and integrating with OneDrive and OneNote! 5 stars, no complaints, must have, especially for MS365 subscribers!

by Joaznit2win on 2021/02/05 12:30

Does not fit screen on iPads
by de.double.u on 2021/02/02 06:40

Terrible issues, and no iPad friendly version available.
by BHRice on 2021/01/29 18:16
Office files, be docx, xlsx, or wutever, created via 365 on my Win10 desktop are read-only on both iOS and Android, causing great annoyance when continuing working on my mobile devices. In addition, for some unknown reasons, virtual keyboards’ trackpad mode of iOS’s builtin inputs stop working after I tab backspace in any 365 app on my iPad. This makes correcting words really painful. But for some reason, trackpad mode still works fine with Google’s GBoard inputs (but GBoard has its own issues reducing my productivity). For a paid subscription app suite, these productivity-hindering issues are by no means acceptable.

by josey4628 on 2021/01/21 13:41
While this takes up less memory on my device, it doesn’t feel like it makes things easier or faster when using Office. If I have individual apps on my home screen, I can start the needed workflow faster than opening Office then looking for Word or Excel. Also a true iPad version is needed for me to get meaningful work done. I can zoom in on my iPad, but lots of screen space is wasted, and again, there is no advantage than using the individual iPad versions of MS Office.

Initial reactions to Word on an iPad
by Lyman Gallup on 2021/01/19 14:22
I have perhaps 30 years of experience with Word but this version is not very intuitive and I am quite disappointed. Usage is not seamless across devices. Perhaps I made an error in installing it but I am using an iPad with a large screen and the software doesn’t recognize it and thinks it is a phone. Very disappointing since no questions were asked about my device during the installation.

by LyssaBot on 2021/01/15 19:16
I wanted to transfer from a different note taking app and thought I'd finally found the one. Until the past few days when I've gone to use it and it immediately force closes itself upon opening. This is frustrating as I have notes written there that don't exist anywhere else and I can't lose them. I've tried turning my phone off and on again, I even uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Nothing has helped.
Lagging

... why not release a version for iPad? This app is great on iPhone but having separate apps for the iPad is inconvenient. Honestly, they should replace the Mac/Windows apps with this one too. That’s how good it is. But I can’t give it 5 stars as an iOS app because it’s only for iPhone which is as asinine as WhatsApp, Robinhood, Instagram & others being only for iPhone.

Goodbye Google Apps & Gmail
by David Oehler on 2021/02/22 08:57
I’m tired of many years of limited features of Google Apps, lack of security, and the world’s largest add revenue company snooping in my personal inbox and invading my privacy and selling it to third parties. With many of today’s employers going “all in” with Office 365 & Teams, I’ve decided to go “all in” with Office and Outlook for my personal apps, email and data. With each website account I change from Gmail to Outlook, I’m once again taking back my privacy and personal freedom. I invite you to do the same. After 30 years of experience working in technology, Microsoft puts security and privacy first, while Google puts ad revenue ahead of your privacy and security. More companies trust Microsoft with their corporate active directory security than any other provider, which is the most important security service.
Useful (when it works), but slow and very limited
by MaxAgHammer on 2020/06/14 01:42
I don’t know if this app by itself is better than having the three separate Office apps installed, but it takes up considerably less space. I use this almost exclusively for Excel documents, and this app is an adequate editor for very simple things like adding new data entries and viewing attachments received via mail or shared via cloud based file services. However, this app is EXTREMELY SLOW to work with and its interface feels claustrophobic and fiddly on an iPhone 8 screen. Maybe it’s better on an iPad Pro, with the larger display and more powerful CPU to run it? I don’t even try to do anything so complicated as enter formulas or format cells when I’m using this app… like I said, the UI is not great. A word of warning: if you rely on Dropbox to store Office documents that you frequently work with and update via this app, you will tear your hair out in frustration at the way Office turns into a complete basket case trying to deal with Dropbox storage. I don’t know whose fault that is, Microsoft or Dropbox, but it’s infuriating and will happen to you even when doing the simplest things to documents retrieved from Dropbox folders. It gets even worse if you’re using a VPN… be ready for lost work and mondo pain. At least everything works even slower over VPN connections, so you have that to look forward to.

I like the idea of a all in one productivity app, however this just doesn’t work for me for a couple of reasons. Number one is the horrible built in Lens scanner. I had Lens before and quickly moved away from it once I discovered Evernote’s Scannable. I scan a lot of documents for work and work a lot with PDF’s so having a well performing scanner is essential for me and Lens simply doesn’t work well enough. I had hoped it had been upgraded for this app and would perform better but it’s the same as the stand alone version. The other PDF related problem is the lack of ability to mark up a PDF. Yes you can sign a document but I often need to add text, boxes or arrows to a PDF and those functions are not available here. The other major downfall is the lack of iPad support. I work a lot on my iPad and need the tools I use to be available there as well. I could see this maybe becoming a great all in one tool in the future with some tweaks but for now I’ll stick with Evernote, Scannable, Docs and Pages.
Almost there. No multiple instance mode yet.

I love using office apps on my ipad. I think they are well designed. And i love using office on my phone once it incorporated the other apps (word,excel, ppt). So naturally I was really excited when the ipad version of office was updated to include the actual apps. But there is one major flaw. It doesn’t support multiple instances yet. You cannot (at the moment) open office more than once. You can do side by side with a different app, but you cannot but office side by side with office. So if you want to use only office, you cannot look at a word document and an excel file. You can’t have 2 word documents side by side. You will need to use something else to accomplish this. Thankfully, the individual office apps (word, excel, ppt) don’t have this problem. I can open as many word apps as my ipad can handle. So I will keep using those for now, and I am sure a future update will incorporate this functionality into office.
Useful on iPhone, annoying in iPad
by jzriot on 2020/10/17 19:44
So, I love O365 and I use it for work nearly every day. While I’m a fan of the office app on my phone and find it easy to find things I’m looking for (or have opened recently), i can’t help but feel rather annoyed at the “mobile version” of the app on the iPad. I find myself daily checking the App Store for updates and looking for an update for iPad. If this app had a meaningful iPad user interface (that is, using the ENTIRE SCREEN), then this app would get 5 stars for me. Let’s get that iPad update!
Why isn’t this universal at start?
by Dan62103 on 2020/05/09 14:12
I’ve had an iPad since day 1, gen 1. I have waited ever since for Microsoft and Apple to meld their strengths and have a good workflow for office on IOS and cloud files. After reading about this app’s release I was hopeful this was the one that would become the solution. And then after downloading realized...it’s prioritized for phones and does the lame compatibility version for iPad. I don’t work in the tech industry, but would bet money that an analysis would show people using office on mobile devices are largely on tablets and less on phones. Are that many people really making presentations and excel files on phone screens? This needed to be a universal app or prioritized for iPads first and then have a phone version. Feels like a no brainer and failure for now for me. Hoping iPad prioritization comes soon.
New Office app confusing in opened / created Word files
by Mark Verizon customer on 2020/11/20 12:55
Since the installation of the new Office app, if I go to OneDrive on an iOS device and open a Word file or create a Word file, what interface shows up in the opened or created file isn’t Word app or a Word interface. Instead this “Office” app opens. It’s very confusing. The Office app interface is very basic, and even the font graphics are simplistic. Since I have discovered this quirk with the “Office” app, and since going to support didn’t give me an easy way to address the issue, I cannot rate this new Office app very high, only one star low. If I open just the Word app, it seems to work just fine. So today, to try and avoid the Office app doing this, since I already have Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps installed and working well on iOS devices, I removed the Office app and dropped my rating to one star.
Call it “Office Lens Plus”?
by Apps as I see them on 2020/02/20 18:32
The Office app for iOS as of February 2020 seems to be lacking a lot of the power promised in the various videos from Microsoft floating around. It looks like this app was rushed out before it was finished. One video shows the ability to create a PowerPoint from an outline, but try finding the “Create Outline” button in this version. Office Lens already has some great capabilities - such as scanning a whiteboard or making a PDF - and this app does those too. And while it will get those images or scans over into a Word, Excel, or PowerPoint document, that’s hardly bringing them all into one place in any easy way. I hope Microsoft will continue to develop this into what they’ve promised. But at this point, there’s not enough in the app, and what is there isn’t quite integrated yet.
Not bad but needs better signature integration with outlook
by BinoWasHere on 2021/02/11 01:21
I’m still not sure about the benefits of this app. I understand that Microsoft is trying to integrate the separate office applications in one app. Unfortunately this didn’t address my issue. I needed a way to allow users to sign pdf or other documents from within Outlook. This doesn’t do that. If you open an attachment in outlook, you have to save to your OneDrive first then open the app again from within OneDrive. Still a bit cumbersome. Unfortunately we are not allowed to use other third party add-in’s for signing pdf documents. Have to stick to the office only universe.
Great All-in-one
by TrueReviewer02 on 2020/05/14 14:32
Great call by Microsoft to add their Office Trio (Word, Excel and Power Point) into one app. I have an older 16GB phone, and Storage is at a high premium. With this app, I can write papers, work on spreadsheets and presentations without taking up space with three separate apps, saving me precious storage space. This is a great app for working on projects in places I can't bring my laptop, or if one of my other family members is using it, I can still be productive from my phone. Pair this app with a bluetooth keyboard and you have a winning combination!
I’m super happy with the new Office app!
by apfitzg2 on 2020/02/20 05:13
This is great! The update is very efficient for me. I work between Word and Excel quite often for research. To be able to open, copy, and use actions quickly when I’m doing something quickly (like emailing my boss about statistical results) is essential. Office does this very well and I’m very happy with Microsoft listening to customers and combining all of the essentials into one. I also really like the option to convert an image to Excel table or image to text. These small features really make me love it.
Elegant and well done
by Atlg8or on 2020/05/13 12:32
This app is an example of something I didn’t know I needed but once I began exploring and using it, I love it. Very elegant and simple solution, with access to all of the key use cases. Microsoft continues to delight under Satya Nadella and this app is another example of a well-executed solution that not only meets needs but delights in its simplicity. As MS continues to improve some of the bones (lens/pdf scanning and editing, etc.) this app will only continue to get better. Well done Microsoft and Office app developers. Love it.
Definitely Recommend
by salad345 on 2020/04/15 15:32
I live for this app. It is so much easier on the app then on the browser. Especially since I have to do school work from home, it’s just so much easier and less stressful. The only thing I would correct is when you go into office, I wish more of the little icons were there that you could go to like word or PowerPoint or teams and stuff like that. But otherwise I definitely recommend this app. Five stars
Forces phone/tablet choice
by Thee Madam Bomb on 2020/02/21 18:53
Unless it’s a bug, the app seems to make you choose between optimization for a phone or tablet. I installed on my phone first and then on the iPad and it won’t resolve to the iPad screen properly. (There’s also a message generated saying as much). Beyond that super-annoying issue, I don’t really see how this is an improvement over the individual apps I use (Word, Excel & PPT) on these devices. It seems like a re-skin, not a re-think.
Microsoft Office Application
by NewJack Sixty on 2020/07/30 10:23
The app is great; but limited. The pandemic locked me out of university, community college, and public library computer labs which put a cramp in me posting on my Facebook page. I wondered if Microsoft had an Office App in the App Store? To my surprise; there was! The App allowed me to continue posting from my IPhone SE; which have its difficulties. I yet, continued on. My problems were the inflexibility of the app to work on the small surface of my iPhone. Frustrating as it is, I continue to use it, the App gets the job done; which is a plus!!!
Update broken!
by muy bien 13 on 2020/11/19 09:09
Ever since I updated the lens/document scan feature is broken! I can no longer scan to PDF or I get an error. Please make save to PDF the default saving option, nobody wants photos of long documents they need to send as one file. Also, if I forget to change it from photo, I want to be able to go into media, open the scan, tap edit, and re-save as a PDF but it’s missing! I have to completely rescan.
I would like more capabilities to video chat while working with coworkers
by Charlen_21 on 2020/11/16 17:52
I this new world of business Office needs to update for the students at home and the work mom at home. We needed to be able to do more on our smart phone and on our laptop. The YouthTube videos need to more better meaning while in any windows apps the video needs to clearer and so bugs with the coding are off as far a integrating with the latest smartphones
Love Having my Desktop Wherever I’m At
by Dbblair on 2020/03/13 02:11
I decided to check this out when it popped up on my computer when I was in Excel, and I’m really glad that I did. Frequently, there are things that I have laid out on a spreadsheet that I want to show my husband, and now, instead of waiting for an opportunity to interrupt what he’s doing to sit him down at the computer, I can just quickly pull it up on my phone. Great app!
So far so good, but...
by Wasting My Thyme on 2020/08/04 01:59
Would be even better if (A) there was a privacy option that allows users to set a password/pin, or use Touch ID; and (B) if there were better integration between this and cloud provider apps such that each app could be protected with a password while also allowing the user to open documents from any cloud app via Office as a centralized point. Right now password protection for iOS OneDrive, Google Drive, etc. has to be disabled to open and edit documents.
limited benefits...
by josey4628 on 2021/01/21 13:41
While this takes up less memory on my device, it doesn’t feel like it makes things easier or faster when using Office. If I have individual apps on my home screen, I can start the needed workflow faster than opening Office then looking for Word or Excel. Also a true iPad version is needed for me to get meaningful work done. I can zoom in on my iPad, but lots of screen space is wasted, and again, there is no advantage than using the individual iPad versions of MS Office.
Was good, but an update made it worse.
by Sebas421 on 2020/04/28 00:44
There's a microphone icon when viewing a document in Mobile view that won't go away. It's so annoying. That and when coming back to a document, I no longer have the option to go where I left off. When working with smaller documents, it's not a problem. But when I have a 456 page document that I'm working on and I go back to the middle to edit and exit, I have to find my way back when before there used to be a little previous badge I could click on. Ease revert and give option to hide the microphone icon.
Love the user interface! My life as an interior designer is going to be simplified!
by Ahhhhh!!!! Cheese on 2020/02/20 15:56
It’s so easy to navigate and have everything you need for working with the documents on my phone in one place. I often need to respond quickly, by photographing the drawing, making changes on the go, before it was a pain. I can now sign documents, create PDFs, and use office lens, all in the same place!
Works great.....on my iPhone
by Dj Dominox on 2020/07/21 22:42
I feel like this is some sort of a joke for using Office/Microsoft products on Apple devices. This app works great on my iPhone but on my iPad that I have a keyboard for, not so much. One the screen is small meaning its for iPhones and not iPads. I now have to download 5 different apps that I could have used just one, please fix this ironic mistake so I can work in one app in peace.
Microsoft Office 365 Word
by aapdisney on 2020/10/07 17:20
This started out as a great tool, but lately has been a huge headache due to the fact that after a short period of time typing there are constant delays in words appearing and punctuations, spaces and words are being added randomly. Nothing has helped to correct the issue. We have tried deleting and reuploading it and that hasn’t helped, we checked our internet and that isn’t the issue, we have even tried other devices with the same thing and it happens there too. It’s very frustrating especially when it is the main tool for my schoolwork.
Absolutely incredible !
by Devspace on 2020/02/19 16:42
Whoever came up with this idea of providing a unique seamless experience deserves much more than an appreciation. The app provides stunning experience with far less complexity compared to managing one for text and graphics needs. I am sure the app will get more revisions and tweaks down the lane , but I am very impressed with what Microsoft has done here. Outstanding!
Full fidelity and quick sharing
by TomMoen on 2021/02/22 16:09
There are a few things to really like about this app; 1) it delivers all your docs from a tenant and makes them quickly and easily available 2) full fidelity of Office files on your iPhone 3) email a doc with a single click enabling rapid collaboration. This is what Office on iPad should have always been. Fantastic.
Excellent but...
by Anonymous #1212 on 2020/12/06 05:18
I love this app because it’s all Office apps in one but I use an iPad and this app is for iPhone and I can still download it but it has the iPhone versions of Office which are a little bit harder to work on iPad, and also the keyboard is big which makes it more harder to work in iPad. This app is excellent but the only problem is that it’s for iPhone and not for iPad, I would like a lot if you make it available for iPad.
Microsoft Disappoints.
by XPortagoX on 2020/12/03 16:12
I am aware that the separate apps are optimized for iPad, but I wanted to get this to get to my things all in one app. Seeing that’s not possible anymore, it’s better to just get the separate apps for iPad that are actually optimized. I use an iPad mini and I saw that Office was here as an iPad app—but it’s not. The “iPad” app that is supposed to be for iPad users is literally the iPhone app. Your only option to make it fit your iPad’s screen is to use the enlarge button on the bottom right corner of your screen. Why did you get lazy? The Office app still has a lot of potential but it’s ruined for iPad users.
MAKE iPAD VERSION PLEASE
by Krazazn on 2020/02/26 22:14
I use this app on my phone all the time, but hope they will make one for iPad os. But please allow multiple instances. I currently reference a spreadsheet and write about the data in a word document on separate apps, but I am worried that I will not be able to have these two files open in separate apps and will have to close a file, open the other, the. Reopen the original. It can be great!
Love the idea, needs work on iPad
by JayJay2425 on 2021/02/16 13:07
I love the idea of having a unified app on iOS/iPadOS. I was very excited to see that this app has finally made its way to iPad. I’m someone who doesn’t necessarily need the full power of all 3 standalone apps, and they take up storage more than anything else. A unified, lighter app is just what I was looking for. However, without multiple-window/multitasking support, this app cannot serve as a suitable replacement. If this feature is added, this app would be perfect.
This is great!
by Cody Barnett on 2020/02/24 13:16
I can’t believe how well this was done! It’s easy, clean, and the functionality is all there. Three apps + all in one! Suggestion - it would be great to be able to setup a default save location for scan to pdf. Also, the default file name should not be date (as the second file overwrites first).
Office for IOS
by AlphaGhost84 on 2020/02/19 22:22
It’s hard to get work done without Microsoft Office, and it is convenient to have everything all in one app. Office is not perfect but it is very good, especially on a mobile device. Some of the negative reviews are from over 6 years ago. Office for IOS has come a very long way since then.
Lost my 40 year account and messed up my working desktop with Office 2010
by Flying Padre on 2020/08/18 14:11
Loaded new Office 365 and it blocked access to Office 2010 and I yet to have accessed my old email accounts at all after a week of hours trying Wish I never waisted the money I didn’t need One Drive but Windows 10 update installed it too. It earned a 1 star from me and now only an old laptop works yet with Office 2010 and my new laptop is worthless for my old email coming in it only puts out via Windows 10 on Edge and nothing on Outlook 365 but some long outlook with numbers behind i🤬🥵😡🤯
Office for iOS
by Pathoftruth on 2021/02/06 15:15
Thank you Satya Nadella!!! The best Microsoft Office experience is on Apple hardware! Ok, well maybe I just like the Apple design language, but MS does a terrific job combing what we are familiar with on Office on the iOS platform. This app is fantastic, combining several apps into one and integrating with OneDrive and OneNote! 5 stars, no complaints, must have, especially for MS365 subscribers!
PLEASE OPTIMIZE FOR iPadOS
by Shaw.Nomura on 2020/04/13 14:40
I can’t give you a 5 star review for two reasons: 1) I use Office 365 APPS exclusively on my iPad Pro. You NEED TO provide a separate iPadOS app or optimize this one to be used on the iPad. 2) Please improve the Excel parts of this app especially when an iPadOS version is created. It would be awesome to get a version that rivals the MacOS version of Excel. Many of us us the iPad as a Mac/PC replacement. These two improvements will truly make this the perfect APP for the mobile office user.
Amazing office app for ios
by Mrmcpistole on 2020/08/17 04:49
Use to use word but needed a spread sheet outline that word couldn't use and discovered this app. Must say...... amazed. They need this on pc. Like all the main Microsoft platforms that can open all the different document styles and that students, and employees use bundled in one? Why wasn't this a thing prior when i was in high school.
Will not save a single scan
by SirFliesALot on 2020/11/06 05:04
This app is a waste of space. It will allow you to view your one drive and that’s about it. If you scan a document, it won’t save it. If you open a document, it won’t successfully open. If you create a document, it’ll bring about yet another error. App seems cool in concept but if it doesn’t work then it is just a clunk of an app that does absolutely nothing in terms of work flow. It is just an app taking up space that allows you to do what the OneDrive app already lets me do, view what I have saved in OneDrive.
It is now better
by ESman9 on 2021/02/20 23:22
With the new update, this app is now more valuable and useful, now I don’t need 3 different apps (Word, Excel, PP) its all here as if I was using that specific app. It also has a PDF converter and multiple other actions *if you have a subscription. Highly recommend this if you use these apps daily.
Microsoft Office Suite 365 app
by hsgshgy on 2020/05/09 18:17
I love this app! This app is so easy for me to use! It is extremely convenient! I can type up a letter on my phone using this app, transfer it to a PDF and sign it if I need to. I can save my documents to the files app on my phone! I love it! Technology today is awesome!
It works
by jeny clark on 2020/05/22 15:21
Since quarantine is here we need this for school so it’s really helpful and there is this feature where you can just speak and it writes down by itself just that at first it was tricky that’s why I gave it 4 stars ⭐️ and I had another review and it asked me to write one again and again I can’t find my old one like they delete it or something
A little effort might help
by yandere or tsundere on 2020/04/01 06:43
This app is not working for IPad, I understand that you made it for iPhones, but please make it for IPads as well. Secondly most of us are used to the structure/texture of these apps (word,excel,PowerPoint and others) I understand that it is a little different on IPhones but the arrangement is a little too different and difficult, I hope you change it accordingly
Only 4 stars because...
by Rezzenonne on 2021/01/07 15:54
... why not release a version for iPad? This app is great on iPhone but having separate apps for the iPad is inconvenient. Honestly, they should replace the Mac/Windows apps with this one too. That’s how good it is. But I can’t give it 5 stars as an iOS app because it’s only for iPhone which is as asinine as WhatsApp, Robinhood, Instagram & others being only for iPhone.
My experience with Microsoft Word on IPad
by Lynatam on 2020/11/13 11:30
I am a very recent user (about a week!) and am yet to figure out a couple of things, such as creation of folders, inserting a password on a document or change on an imported document. The Apple Apps (Pages, Numbers, ...) have a link to getting started (some kind of Manual for guidance on how to navigate the App). I don’t know if there’s an equivalent - it would be very helpful. Thank you.
Pinned items do not sync properly
by rgoble4 on 2020/12/10 01:28
This seems silly, but if I mark a document as pinned on the iPhone and then open/edit that document on my Mac, I expect the pinned status to carry forward. Yet over and over again I have to remark my frequently used documents as pinned on my iPhone after editing them on my Mac because somehow the pinned value is lost. It makes me angry every time. I’ll leave this at 1 star until this is fixed. How hard is it to sync one Boolean value? This is happening with OneDrive!
Great App
by Del Skinner on 2020/04/28 22:56
This is a great app my only complaint is that it restarts occasionally when switching back and forth from other apps and you have to re-open the file you are working on. Very frustrating but fix that and it’s 5 star worthy.
No disappointment
by Drew.C1985 on 2020/09/25 12:19

LOVE IT - Quick notes is a great feature
by Greg P. on 2020/02/20 05:46
Love it. 9/10 right out of the gate. I love the two panels and the (+) action button. Surfacing Notes to the top is 💯 The Actions hub rules too. Man, really psyched. Wonder if there’s a widget. Uh, for improvements, adding different view modes, i.e., folder tree, gallery, for files would be rad.
Undependable file system, bad as MS-DOS
by Mac Since 1985 on 2020/02/23 20:01
You can no longer be sure if a file is saved or where, or if when you try to open it again, you’ll get the message that it is in an unsupported location. The new combo app, and also the latest versions of the iOS stand-alone Office apps, now will insist on an invisible and non-Mac and non-intuitive filing system. The feeling is all-too reminiscent of the old pre-Windows MS-DOS days. The guiding principle seems just to force-sell their 365 subscriptions. Not for me.
Great on iPhone, but NOT iPad
by X.Static on 2020/03/05 21:21
Love having everything centralized on my iPhone for lightweight use, but it's unbelievable that Microsoft shipped this without optimizing for iPads, which is where most mobile Office users will get any kind of serious work done. 4 stars for iPhone, but 1 star for iPad, and that's only because the app opens and works, albeit looking terrible. You shouldn't have shipped this app without optimizing for iPad as well.
