Every time I try to open this PowerPoint on my phone, it keeps force quitting. I don’t know what to do, because I need to screen Record myself presenting it and send the video to my boss. I can’t do this if it keeps closing. I can present it on my computer, it Hass to be on my phone so I can record it. I’m really getting frustrated and think they really need to fix this. There’s no reason it shouldn’t work, all my other presentations work and this is just very simple

by Worst! App! EVER! on 2021/05/05 23:06
This is the worst app I’ve ever used! It constantly freezes when you’re in the ppt or when you’re navigating between ppts! It should NEVER do that! This is a huge issue whenever I’m presenting, because I have to then pause my presentation and redownload the app again! If I could use another app like ppt, I would! I wish I could give zero stars!

A good addition to have when you may need to work on a project from a remote location without a computer. Obviously no where near as convenient as using a computer, but for the platform constraints, it’s great! Syncing can be difficult at times.

PowerPoint on iPad Pro
by DeputyDog1122 on 2021/04/30 03:34
I’m a little disappointed that there are not very many themes available on the iPad Pro version...i can only access 26 and they are the most basic looking themes you can imagine. Not very professional looking, and resembles something an 8th grader might put together. Other than that, the app works O.K. ...

If you expect to put together a PowerPoint on your desktop and then transfer it to mobile, don&#39;t bother. The fonts and formatting get all mixed up. Basically there are no fonts installed other than the one default font apparently. Almost useless on the iPhone.

So please let the customers add customs fonts to the program thank you.
PPT for iPad is underpowered
by Reza on 2021/03/09 15:35
I’m a PowerPoint power user. I love the app. It is by far my most frequently used app. I am not just disappointed, but frustrated with PPT for iPad. Very basic functions are missing. For example, there is no word wrap! I think MSFT should now release this until - at a minimum - the basic formatting functions are available. I’m still a fan. I hope it improves and soon!

The least streamlined app
by Drew_Tuerck on 2021/03/07 22:32
This review goes for all of Microsoft 365 in general, not just PowerPoint. I had an assignment where I had to make a presentation and upload it to YouTube. However, I was using a free account through college, and there were no options to export as a video or any file format that works on YT. We then bought the family subscription, and the option still did not become available. After downloading the desktop app, going into “File” on the top menu and exporting it as an MP4, it finally worked. All this took place over the span of 3.5-4 hours. Terrible experience. Use Google Drive instead, it’s free and actually works.

Overly difficult to put text boxes and type successfully
by Sir Migraine on 2021/03/01 23:03
Having to use PowerPoint on mobile makes me want to smash my phone. Text boxes and typing are extremely difficult to place correctly and are very touchy and delicate. PowerPoint was made for computers, not phones. Barely usable if your computer ever isn’t available. It’ll get the job done, just four times longer than on a computer. Wouldn’t use if I didn’t have to.

Frustrated
by Brooke4592 on 2021/02/23 13:28
I am so fed up with powerpoint. It’s great for presentations and I use it for almost all my projects but the glitches are seriously getting on my nerves. Last week I spent over two hours finalizing a project and adding a bunch of slides just to come back to it today and see multiple error messages and “Changes could not be saved”. So now I have to waste another day re-doing over half of my powerpoint when I had been ready to send it in today. This isn’t the first time that this has happened. I can’t just lose all my work like this every time I use this app! (I’d made sure to save everything before leaving the app.)

BEST PRESENTATION APP EVER
by BassBoi1 on 2019/10/28 00:19
Literally, I don’t know how I would get through high-school without PowerPoint. It’s not the best app if you don’t get the office subscription, but if you do, this app, and all of the other Microsoft powered apps, go a REALLY long way. The suggestion system for it is absolutely spot-on in getting what you really want your presentation to look like. The transitions are limited, but you can usually get by by using the same one twice. I’ve wanted to express my absolute LOVE for PowerPoint for so long, and now seemed like the right time to do it. I just wanna say thanks to Microsoft, their team, and everyone involved in making this almost flawless app!
Feels like a downgrade
by Batmanxxx2013 on 2020/11/30 16:31
I grew up with MS Office products, and I have always been a solid advocate of it. But I have to say that Power Point has been a let down so far, when it comes to using it on iPad. I have been dealing with the same problem, for several years now, reported it three times, and no has responded et alone fixed the problems/bugs: (1) On iPad Pro, converting PPT files to PDF is near impossible, when it comes to moderately sized PPT files (ie with a moderate load of images). It simply doesn’t convert. (2) Loading files that are already stored on the iPad takes forever, or is play do not reopen sometimes, and the system keeps trying and trying to open the file in what seems like forever. This problem seems to be less persistent when WiFi is turned off, but then that defies the whole point of being able to use many of the functionalities that are otherwise only available when you’re connected online. I am still a big fan/supporter, and only use Power Point for my presentation work, but I have to say that something’s got to give, eventually, f they don’t address such issues.
Missing basic functions, hard to navigate
by Alphadogtucker on 2020/07/21 02:30
The app has most of the formatting functions you’d expect, but what good are they if you cannot do basic editing? - To cut or copy text, you have to use a search function and type in “cut” or “copy.” But once you have text in the buffer, there’s no Paste function, not even using the search! Unlike most apps, press-and-hold only brings up a magnifying glass. - The auto zoom function has two degrees: whole page, where you cannot edit text, and zoomed in, where you can edit text but can only can see the left half or right half of the page. If the cursor is at one end of a line and you want to move the cursor to the other end of a line, you have to Zoom out and then zoom back in. - You’ll get tired of the above flaws very quickly. So I added a text editor app to create the text and then copy it into PowerPoint. Then I tore my hair out for hours, looking for a way to paste the text into PowerPoint for final formatting. If the vital cut, copy, and paste functions exist, they’re hidden better than Jimmy Hoffa’s body. - My advice: find another app unless the text in your slides is extremely simple.
New update is not an improvement
by Deezey311 on 2017/10/10 14:04
The new update is a huge down grade. You now get glittery pens - but functionality has been lost. I used to be able to shrink the size of the powerpoint slides and type in the note section along side - which was carried throughout the powerpoint file. Now every time I switch a slide, it is MAXIMIZED to the largest size possible - and I have to re-shrink it down again and again. Even worse, the slide can no longer be moved to the side to accommodate the note space so that you can view the slide and notes fully and simultaneously side-by-side. Not only that, but every time I minimize the application to jump on safari powerpoint restarts completely, and I lose my place in the slides. These complaints may not seem like a huge deal, but for someone who is in PA school and sits through 6 hour lectures, these are huge disappointments and annoyances. I’ve used powerpoint since I began college 6 years ago, but I will be using another app if these problems aren’t fixed soon.
Too much flash and too little standard features
by Phoibos on 2019/04/05 22:41
I really do like having PowerPoint (and the rest of the office suite) on my phone and my iPad. And there’s a lot I can do on them to edit a presentation. But while Microsoft keeps adding pretty things, there are very basic functions that are missing, making it sometimes impossible to use this in a work environment. My currently biggest beefs: 1. No ability to select and copy/move/delete multiple slides. A slide sorter would be nice for doing that but I’d just go with the ability to do it in the existing interface. But moving slides from one presentation to another is just too painful if you have to do it one slide at a time. 2. Missing highlighting option. Not because I can’t highlight text (would be nice but I can do without that) but because I can’t get rid of highlighting someone else put in a slide (using a different version of PowerPoint). This is absolutely annoying because there is NO workaround. There are other, smaller user interface issues, but they are annoying, not insurmountable. In general, for most purposes, this is a good app. Just beware that it is missing features that you are used to from the desktop version.
What happened with the latest version??
by Bdawgno1 on 2018/08/28 01:08
My slide show keeps blurring slides and crashing after showing few slides. Up until your recent update, the app has been working perfectly on my iPad Pro (12.7 inch model). With the last update, I cannot use this app because of not only what I described above, but also the app freezes. Typically happens after swiping (with or without slide show) after 10-15 slides into the presentation. I’m running latest iOS 11 on my iPad. However, the app works fine from my iPhone X (running beta iOS 12, beta 8). Can you please fix this issue so I can rate this app 5 stars again? This is with version 2.16.1 (your latest version available). I have full Microsoft yearly membership for editing PPT, XLS, DOC files via the apps. Dear developer: feel free to email me if you need screenshots. I’ve tried this on several different slide decks from iPad. Same results unfortunately.
Corrupted File
by Axnacion541 on 2018/08/12 03:04
I had a very important presentation to make and at the last minute there was an issue saving it and it got severely corrupted apparently. It hasn&#39;t opened since. This is such a shame and now I understand why Microsoft and Apple are so reluctant to fuse together for projects such as this. It&#39;s a complete disaster; an utter failure of the highest regard. One would expect more of not one, but two multi-billion dollar companies, allegedly attempting to (re)design a program which has already been on the market for over a decade. Seriously, it is as if a novice, trainee student from a back-alley detention center in Detroit was hired to design this app for a net sum of thirty cents. A disgrace. Additionally, some of the formats for inserted pictures actually reduce the quality of the photos themselves. This is also a problem with the PC version. I&#39;m glad to be able to witness the headway Microsoft has made towards addressing these deficiencies. Or, perhaps lack thereof.
Glaring flaw
by The Biker on 2018/12/05 20:43
I use PowerPoint on my PC and iPad, with the files I edit sitting in my iCloud Drive. I rehearsed an early draft of my presentation on my iPad then spent several days working on my presentation on my PC. I then opened up PowerPoint on my iPad and it overwrote the version of my presentation saved by my PC to iCloud, without warning, with the old version I’d opened days before on my iPad. I lost several days of work due to the bizarre auto save feature. If I’d waited to put the presentation on my iPad until the morning of my presentation I would have nothing to show after it overwrote the most recent version. Why PowerPoint would auto save when there’s a more recent time stamp on the system file is beyond me. This is a fatal flaw that makes this program one star to me. Otherwise it’s a great app, but I could have lost my job due to the overwrite so its hard to recommend this app to anyone working on presentations that matter.
Arabic Language is Broken
by PAssword@23 on 2020/10/13 07:34
I’m writing this based on my experience using PowerPoint on a Mac, not a mobile device. There is a serious issue with PowerPoint when you try to type in both English and Arabic in the same sentence. It is extremely common in the Middle East for someone to need to add an English word in parenthesis in the middle of an Arabic sentence. However, PowerPoint will jumble up the words and punctuation when you do this. This is a serious issue that affects more than 420 million Arabic speakers in the world. Microsoft needs to address this because PowerPoint is nearly unusable for those who need to create presentations in both English and Arabic. * What’s strange is that Microsoft Word can handle the two languages together better than PowerPoint. Although Word is not perfect either in the area.
Not nearly the functionality as it should have on iPad!!
by Katyb113 on 2017/12/05 01:22
I’m really disappointed by this app. First of all I have trouble working with large ppts that I’ve saved to Dropbox. I often get a notice that I “no longer have access to the file” and have to save a copy...which then doesn’t open. So sometimes I’m just screwed. This is frustrating. Further, there is no timing or recording option in the “view slide show” tab. You can’t select multiple objects at once, the lasso select tool doesn’t work for me, and it’s very hard to move around on the slide. Maybe I’m just not used to it, but it doesn’t have nearly the level of functionality as the full version on a Mac. So frustrating because I would love to edit, save, and practice my presentations on the go. This is a major reason why I bought an iPad.
Paid version needs feature parity with PowerPoint Online
by JustinRJackson on 2019/03/19 01:39
Right now the iOS version (even paid) is pretty weak at best. While I can review the file and look at it, only the most basic of functionality is carried over. Things like SmartArt are a constant thing I need to edit which is completely unavailable in the iOS version. What’s more, is while it is available in PPT Online, if you have the iOS version installed, trying to launch a PPT from any other program (Teams, OneDrive, even the browser) simply loads the iOS version. In order to do basic editing of even slightly more robust things like SmartArt requires me to constantly uninstall the iOS version, do my edits in the browser, then reinstall the iOS version once complete. Please get at least feature parity with the Online version.
Useful Teaching Aid
by dougsmith1977 on 2018/01/17 18:57
I’m using Powerpoint mobile to record teaching screencasts and find it very useful. ONE SUGGESTION: Could you add different colored pens and highlighters directly to the quick access bar at the top in presentation mode? When I tap to change color, that appears on my screen. If it were simply in the bar at the top and didn’t drop down, then I could simply crop that part of the video before I post it. I’m guessing there are others who would be interested in a similar feature. Thanks!
Download too BIG!
by BestAppsUser on 2018/08/19 22:40
I will no longer use Wifi - the artificial limits on download are about to make me delete your LARGE App. I have a case at Apple and of course they blame you and the carrier - the support agent agrees it is “Stupid”. I wonder why it’s okay to stream Gigs of a baseball game or a movie but downloading an app that is Broken is a NO NO. MS NOT that differentiating these days. Same for other MS apps. I like Outlook but LookOUT to be gone too. And since I own the company that buys 365 and Azure gone is a BIG gone. Tick. Tick, tick. I’m you are now aware and I can let other users know all is well in a few days or so, therefore rating will go to a deserved location. As I always say, “ when it doesn’t make sense it is about the Cents. Let’s use some common sense, and worry less about the small cents. Ready set GO! - drdave
Good but wish I didn’t run in to so many dead ends
by Igiveadam on 2018/04/17 14:56
60% of the time, it does what I need, but there are some basic functionalities that are just missing and it doesn’t make sense why. You can’t search or replace copy in a presentation. Forget about copying multiple slides from one presentation to another (you have to close your presentation, open the one you need slides from, copy a single slide, close that presentation, open the first again, copy it in, and then repeat that process for every slide you need to copy in! Come on!). Honestly, at some times it feels like Microsoft is just messing with Apple users. “Fine we’ll give you our software for iPads but good luck getting anything done! Should have bought a surface!”
Save a copy
by Icosace1022 on 2018/04/15 22:38
Someone is currently editing this review. To edit this review please save a copy. Yeah, I’m playing with you. But seriously, every time I close a document and then open it later I see the description above, yet with the word ”document“ instead of ”review.“ And often it doesn’t even have to be later, it could be a few minutes after closing it. I’m not going to create five or ten copies of my work all around my files because you guys have a glitch in your save/autosave mechanism. Tell me how I am going to get done my presentations for my college courses!? This is actually important! I know it’s not all about me, but fixing this glitch could help everybody with the same issues and more. Thanks for reading, but I can’t fully thank Microsoft, Apple, whoever is in control of this app, etc. until this is fixed.
New update is subpar
by Beveerrrrrllllyyyy on 2017/10/12 04:03
I used to love this app when I’m taking notes on my IPad. However, its slowing me down and annoying me. Here’s why: 1. Whenever I try to type something in the notes section, the slide doesnt resize anymore to fit the screen with the section open. Even if I try to minimize the slide, you can’t move it to the side to keep the whole thing in view. 2. The names of my presentations are disappearing! For example, I’ll have a presentation that I named “Ch. 14 Cardiac Assessment.” Now it’ll only show me “Ch. 14.” I’m getting confused in trying to open the correct presentation! 3. When I try to save my presentation from one drive to another, it’ll save the presentations in both drives instead of just transferring it to another. I don’t know if that bothers anyone else, but it bothers me. PLEASE FIX THIS WITH A NEW UPDATE. OR JUST BRING BACK THE PREVIOUS UPDATE!
Mostly good, room for improvement
by Shiloh Graves on 2018/10/15 16:14
This app is mostly good, but I have encountered an error when taking notes in presentation mode. Sometimes I the ability to swipe between slides goes away and every stroke I make to attempt to do so just puts ink on the slide. It often takes many attempts to get the functionality bar to drop down from the top so that I can exit and re-enter presentation mode, which then usually fixes the problem for a time. In general, I think Microsoft could improve the functionality of the PowerPoint app to include the features of OneNote within a ppt presentation format and do away with one note altogether, thus eliminating the need to export ppts into one note.
works pretty well
by Sir Jeff of Lee on 2019/11/10 11:40
It works similar to editing PowerPoint in a Teams site. Much functionality is missing, but you can get the basic job done. One thing that doesn&#39;t work on the iPad, for me, is that when I select text, I no longer get the pop up menu (e.g. select, select all, copy, paste, etc) this is VERY inconvenient. I have a couple work arounds for some of those elements, but it forces me to have to jump through several steps to do a simple action. This used to work, and then on a recent app upgrade, the menu disappeared. Hope I&#39;m not the only one and they can fix this pretty major bug.
Issues with saving to iPad in most recent update
by _willknight on 2019/05/23 15:49
There’s a bug with the new update. When trying to save items to my iPad, I have to save the item, close out the app as the app freezes, re-open the app, save the item again in which the option to replace the item comes up since it’s already been saved as a zero kb empty item, and when I replace it this seems to bypass the glitch. It’s been like this for weeks. Figured it would have been fixed by now. I didn’t have this issue prior to this update. Not the end of the world, but very annoying for a grad student who has new PowerPoint lectures to save each day.
OneDrive Rocks!
by WFPB eye doc on 2019/01/26 16:33
I actively use five devices, and four are portable. Four from Apple, the fifth is a Windows device. Being able to grab any device at any time and add a new thought to a presentation is quite the luxury, and previously many of those transient thoughts were lost. Navigating the iPad versions was a bit of a puzzle but I finally found all the functionality that I had learned how to use on my big computers. Having it is easy to edit and share presentations saves a lot of pre-presentation stress. Philip Paden WFPB eye doc
What more can be said
by JBC1019 on 2019/09/22 13:21
PowerPoint provides a fun and interesting way to convey information. Not all the information one needs is interesting, but PowerPoint can make conveying it fun. I use these for professional lectures and Sunday School classes. If you take advantage of the ease of adding multimedia you can incorporate cartoons, funny pictures or internet videos to perk up your listeners. With a little work you can use the animation feature to capture attention. The auto design can add ideas and produce eye catching slides.
Another Numbingly Lame App by MS
by Pdx_biker9 on 2018/09/21 22:48
I have to use office 365 at work and was told oneDrive was great to use since I could edit my files on personal devices while out of the office. Well I’m on vacation and need to send out a report. Got onto onedrive - clugey file structure but worked. I opened the file in ppt to make a few small changes and ... impossible. The app won’t let me make a simple edit to an html text on a page. When I exit it saves my mistakes without asking, so now I’ve screwed up my file. I can’t make a SIMPLE change to my ppt to get my report out. I’ll stick with vpn and a full sized computer or convert the entire thing to IOS files and edit with apple’s stuff next time. Another waste of time trying to get MS software to work.
Please Update ASAP
by LostSalez on 2018/08/25 18:10
I have been using the same two 50-75 slide presentations daily for 2 years with minimal issues. Since update 2.16.2 crashes occur half way into every presentation. The crash occurs on different slides every time. When crash occurs I can only describe it as the slide turns into the equivalent of old school UHF TV fuz ...only instead of black and white the pixelation is colored. All slides remain this way until app is closed out. I updated to the latest version of iOS and deleted and reinstalled App and all presentations to no avail. I deeply regret having updates to app download automatically, as past versions worked adequately for my limited needs. If Microsoft cannot play nice with Apple please just pull Apps form the marketplace.
Updates needed
by olliebeaners on 2017/11/14 20:47
Please improve the UI of saving documents to places other than Microsoft OneDrive. I understand you want to encourage usage, but there needs to be better options for other cloud saving and local saving options that are more immediately accessible. MORE IMPORTANTLY, there is a serious issue when using PowerPoint with a Bluetooth keyboard and my iPad Pro 10.5 inch where the text input lags almost a full two seconds!! This is a PowerPoint only issue, as the text input delay is not present anywhere else in the system, and even not a factor of a demanding program because non-PowerPoint commands, such as multitasking or volume control respond immediately when using PowerPoint. It makes PowerPoint almost unbearable.
Several issues, please fix
by Cash1129 on 2021/01/27 19:10
Two very annoying issues, please look into this. All of the Microsoft apps have the same problem. 1- They add random lines across the document when you’re using “draw” mode (Apple Pencil) to take notes just from the heat of the pencil, this happens when my pencil is not even touching the document but placed above it right before I draw the next letter or word. (This occurs when I have “draw with touch” turned off) 2- then size of the “pen” changes randomly for no reason. Making some words or full sentences bold and then goes back to the normal pencil size. Specific to PowerPoint: when I am writing notes using Apple Pencil on top of the notes/slides that I downloaded for school, it constantly selects the text boxes and moves them around at the slightest touch. I want to be able to just take notes on top of slides. I don’t like doing so in presenter mode because you can’t change the size of the font and everything comes out as extremely bold handwriting. There’s also not undo button in presenter mode. Please fix these issues
Great except for some small things
by Socrates0015 on 2019/09/29 21:44
Really my only issues are that 1) on the iPad, I can’t have two PowerPoint files open split screen and 2) I can’t adjust the size of the side bar that shows all of the slides or the size of the notes window. Some other basic features of PowerPoint are missing from the iPad version, but those are the ones affecting me the most right now. If those things are possible and I just don’t know how to do them, then I apologize.
Great concept but unreliable
by Mdonat1105 on 2018/08/21 13:21
Was very excited initially about the potential of using PowerPoint on my iPad. I do lots of presentations and it’s not always convenient to use a laptop. So I was hoping this would be the ideal solution. Unfortunately, it’s not very stable. I have attempted to use it about 20 times on my iPad and almost every presentation I’ve done it randomly closes on its own. In addition there are many times I work on the presentation on my desktop and those changes do not always populate on my iPad through the use of Dropbox. I thought initially maybe it was dropbox but none of the other the information that I’ve access that way has been an issue. Hopefully they will work these bugs out.
A bit quirky with Dropbox, buggy PDF export
by donovan1983 on 2017/09/24 14:46
I use PowerPoint primarily to convert my professors’ PowerPoint lectures into PDF and it used to work adequately for that. It often took multiple tries because for some reason the app would just not be able to upload the exported file to Dropbox and would not give any warnings that it failed, instead leaving a zero-byte PDF in Dropbox. When it did work, the PDFs were the same as what the Windows desktop version produced. In the most recent update, however, exported PDFs have a box drawn in the upper-left corner of every single slide that is not in the original file. The desktop version doesn’t do this and neither does Apple’s Keynote iOS app. This breaks my only real use for this app.
Microsoft gets it right partnering with Apple
by WAR1337 on 2019/06/24 02:16
I typically don’t write reviews - but in this case one is much needed. Microsoft does it right in partnering with Apple. Unifying workflows on teams is where this product really shines. This app makes it fluid and easy to link up projects and presentation workflows. You can star on an iPad, continue on a Mac, and finish up via office 365. For those who haven’t leveraged the cloud, I highly suggest you consider this product. You u won’t be disappointed!
Terrible File Handling
by GoogleTool on 2019/01/07 19:22
It’s nice to be able to see PowerPoint file on my iPad. However, attempts to edit them are fraught with difficulty. Particularly annoying is the way the App handles cursor placement and navigation. But my greatest concern is the way this App (and all other MS Office Apps for iOS) handle files. MS has clearly structured file management to favor One Drive. Files can be opened from and saved to One Drive without difficulty. Any other file location is a problem. For example, my attempts to open files from Google Drive lead to files that are Read Only and for which I must Save A Copy. When trying to Save A Copy, with a different name, the operation Cannot Be Completed if the destination is Google Drive. Sick.
Not bad so far
by IntrepidElectronics on 2018/12/31 11:26
I use PowerPoint a lot (the desktop version) and was still using Office 2010, so I thought I&#39;d give 365 a try. So far I am reasonably impressed by what I can accomplish on a mobile device--at least on one with a large screen. I miss all the desktop shortcuts, but I imagine there are many for the mobile version that I just haven&#39;t learned about yet, or perhaps I need to use it with a mobile keyboard. I like the automatic online storage and easy access from all my devices. So...so far, so good.
Some features don’t exist and it’s difficult to transfer photos
by Kalonakai808 on 2019/03/04 00:52
There isnt a spell check feature if you’re using an IPad, that’s a bit irritating because THATin the least should be standard regardless what kind of device you use with this program. Also every time I wanted to add a photo by dragging and dropping (the easy way) I’d have to exit out of the program and reenter to do so. Instead I have take up space by saving photos to my camera roll, it’s a more time consuming and tedious task especially if you’re creating a presentation that has a lot of photos.
One issue
by Anyoneburgeoff on 2021/01/05 21:21
When used in conjunction with MS Teams SharePoint (not sure about other situations) it seems that PowerPoint (and I think other MS apps as well) open the previously used file, not the actual intended file, the first time - it takes a second “opening” of the file, to make it open the correct file. (You could do some testing to find out if it is simply always one file behind or if it only works if you open the same file twice.... anyway). Aside from that it works very well.
Needs to Grow Up
by BPBear on 2018/02/17 19:20
Very limited utility. Cursor hard to track/locate on slides being composed. But worst of all - cannot handle file locations other than an arcane set apparently blessed by Microsoft. For example, Google Drive not treated as a legitimate ‘place’ from which files can be loaded. When attempting to open/download files from Google Drive under the ‘More’ submenu, the files start to download, then consistently get the message ‘Sorry something went wrong, this file cannot be opened.’ Well these files open just fine from the desktop version of PowerPoint. Until the iOS app can handle all desktop files, it will be of very limited use.
PowerPoint
by is every nockname taken? on 2019/08/30 15:05
Love this app! Helps me bc I don’t have a laptop to work on, so I can use my phone. Sometimes it’s a little glitchy, and I can’t insert any symbols, but other than those two things, it’s been going well. I’m currently working on a PowerPoint about all my knowledge on bunnies so my parent will let me get one! It’s been going great! I think I’m convincing them.😊😊 Anyways, I definitely recommend this app to people who don’t have laptops and just phones. 5 stars ⭐️!!!
Small issue
by nursedude7 on 2018/02/19 16:53
On iPad Pro while using presenter view on Apple TV and drawing with apple pencil the markings appear on the left of where the actual drawing is then ghosts to where it actually is. This is very distracting and a downside to utilizing what can be an amazing feature if fixed. This does not seem to be a problem when drawing on slides outside of presenter view but the whole purpose of presenter view is to have other information hidden from learners.
Useful for on-the-go, terrible stability
by taomeister on 2019/05/27 02:35
Using this on the iPad Pro I expected smoother performance, but loading simple PPT’s with light pictures and graphics has led to lots of freezing / saving errors, even when working offline or saving to a local iPad storage instead of relying on the cloud. It’s also missing a crucial feature - being able to compress or specify image quality to a shareable size for email / print. This often leads to 100mb+ presentations or 20+mb PDFs. As is it’s a good solution for on the go deck tweaks but still not ready for prime time use without a laptop.
Cumbersome!
by Mld2416 on 2019/05/05 18:31
I am totally frustrated with this application. It has so many glitches I can only do a couple of things, close the application, open it back. I order to be able to do what I want, I need to get out of it again, and again, and again because it continually gets unworkable unless I close it and reopen numerous times. Also, to change the font size or do any changes to the narrative, I have to delete the entire quote or paragraph, make selections then rewrite. To move any pictures, rearrange it’s very cumbersome, since I have to close the application and reopen again and again until I get it right. FIX THE GLITCHES. I’m done! I’ll get something that works right.
Please become smarter not dumber
by Knatty1 on 2019/03/31 17:02
This is driving me crazy. I have worked so hard to make a PowerPoint presentation and it won’t let me upload it to OneDrive it only keeps making folders instead of actually sending anything into it. Then I go to recent to open the file and sorry, something we wrong and it can’t open the file. I remember back when I used to do everything of my phone. I was able to add videos into the slides and make hyperlinks and all. Now it’s so limited that you can do. We’re at 2019 and we should advance and move forward not go backwards. Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave how dumb apple has become under Tim Cooks and it’s with everything too!
Very convenient
by Bmv96 on 2019/04/29 17:28
It works perfectly, very convenient for school as you can read lecture presentations on the go. It is also pretty simple to create your own slideshow, since it has similar tools to the desktop version. I have not experienced any issues yet after using the app for 4+ years. I cannot think of any improvements that could be made to the app as it is user-friendly. 5 stars
5 star reviews are not truthful
by Tech should make life easier on 2019/09/12 18:09
This app is clearly generating good reviews themselves or paying for them. It is no where near worthy of 4.7 stars. I don’t understand the point of having a sign in and personalized profile if the information is not going to translate between multiple devices. If I work on a presentation from my computer then try to sign in via my iPhone it is not there. I consistently have to email myself my presentations then open them and save them on the new device. I have had this problem for many years and it seems like they have no intention of correcting the bugs in their software. I expect better from a notable company.
Give me full blown PowerPoint, not the watered down version.
by joshmwalz on 2020/04/18 14:11
As a graphic designer I edit and design presentations for many of my clients, and while I get a lot of control on Desktop powerpoint, I can’t get half of what I want done on the iPad version. It’s awful when I’m traveling with my iPad and I can’t get in and simply edit basic things like master slides. Until this is a full version of Powerpoint, I’ll continue to edit everything in Keynote (Which is just as full featured as the desktop version) and export PDFs for my clients. I can’t even describe how frustrated Microsoft Office on the iPad makes me as a professional.
Google slides does the same thing
by Charlette12543 on 2019/10/19 21:12
Listen, the iPad app has an enormous amount of glitches. I can’t make a presentation without wanting to scream. Some of that is the fault of me hating doing presentations for class, but when every time I want to insert a photo, a design idea tab pops up and make me click on it, it gets a little frustrating. Not to mention the photos disappearing, difficulty moving photos, flipping between slides on accident with a useless gesture, or the horrendous text boxes. Google slides may be bad at times, but powerpoint isn’t any better
Excellent app for iPad Pro, slightly buggy
by mp619 on 2020/10/05 14:02
This is an excellent and essential app for all students. It allows me to write on slides as I am following along to the lecture in class. The only downside for me is that with heavy usage of this app (I am probably on it 8+ hours a day), the app shuts itself down when trying to open a new presentation. This forces me to have to delete and redownload the app, almost every other day. Until that issue is fixed, I am leaving my review at 4 stars.
Really wish I could love this...
by Bass Singer on 2017/10/05 15:57
Have used PowerPoint for years, but this iOS version of the Office suite is completely unusable on iOS. It is massively underpowered compared to its desktop version, and completely unintuitive in terms of the layout of the options. Add to that it’s a massive memory and space hog (typical of Microsoft bloatware) and there is unacceptable lag using my Bluetooth keyboard. No problems in other iOS apps, mind you, but it takes a full 2 seconds for keystrokes to be recorded on screen when I’m using any MS product. Can’t justify the obscene price they’re asking for a subscription when they can’t even get typing text to work properly, can I?
PowerPoint on my iPad
by 1970Pattie on 2018/09/20 15:36
I have recently retired and begun using an iPad, wanting to untether from a home computer. I purchased a PowerPoint and 360 subscription for my iPad. I was able to easily create a nice slide presentation including diagrams and photos, so I rate that aspect 5 stars. I haven’t found a way to convert my slides to a handout with 4 or 6 slides to a page, and haven’t gotten an answer from Help, so no stars for that. Overall, I like the program, and hope I can find all the functions I want on it.
Great until you write too much
by Joshthebear64 on 2018/11/30 23:50
I use PowerPoint for direct note taking in class and I love it. My biggest complaint is that if I’m writing extensive notes on the PowerPoints the app begins to slow down and freeze. This has been a frequent issue of mine on more than just PowerPoint. I have experienced freezing and slow down on Word (far more than any other) and OneNote (after I’ve written the equivalent of 3-5 lectures worth of notes). Also the hand resting note taking works, but I feel could be drastically improved.
Claim of “full function with 365 subscription” is bunk!
by RrtssMom on 2017/10/11 14:53
I have a prof who releases slides minutes before class, and I take notes on them, but with out note taking options in PowerPoint I have to export and when that happens half the text is oversized and doesn’t convert properly. PowerPoint app doesn’t even work well with other Microsoft apps!i have to use my computer to convert to pdf properly, and then put the document on my tablet- not gonna happen moments before class! Allow us to “print” slides and note sheets set up, like on computers, from this app to others in pdf form! AND keep the text the size in the file- STOP CHANGING THE TEXT SIZE!!!
Not for serious presentations
by ThisExperienceWasHorrible on 2020/12/10 01:51
I was really excited to test this app out since I have a pen to do drawings with, and I had high expectations... for the first hour of using the app I tried to save my document and it froze trying to save. It took more than an hour and I was really hoping my work was saved, luckily it did. I check the document and I noticed that it had auto save on. I thought that was great! After doing work for three hours I accidentally press the back button and nothing was saved. This app seriously has autosave on and it wasn’t able to save any of my work?? So disappointed and irritated.

Every time I try to open this PowerPoint on my phone, it keeps force quitting. I don’t know what to do, because I need to screen Record myself presenting it and send the video to my boss. I can’t do this if it keeps closing. I can present it on my computer, it Hass to be on my phone so I can record it. I’m really getting frustrated and think they really need to fix this. There’s no reason it shouldn’t work, all my other presentations work and this is just very simple

Constantly freezes and causes me to redownload
by Worst! App! EVER! on 2021/05/05 23:06
This is the worst app I’ve ever used! It constantly freezes when you’re in the ppt or when you’re navigating between ppts! It should NEVER do that! This is a huge issue whenever I’m presenting, because I have to then pause my presentation and redownload the app again! If I could use another app like ppt, I would! I wish I could give zero stars!

A good addition to have when you may need to work on a project from a remote location without a computer. Obviously no where near as convenient as using a computer, but for the platform constraints, it’s great! Syncing can be difficult at times.

PowerPoint on iPad Pro
by DeputyDog1122 on 2021/04/30 03:34
I’m a little disappointed that there are not very many themes available on the iPad Pro version...i can only access 26 and they are the most basic looking themes you can imagine. Not very professional looking, and resembles something an 8th grader might put together. Other than that, the app works O.K. ...

MS totally screwed this app on purpose to help prevent the IPad Pro from being a Surface killer. This app only offers the most basic features and even as a student, it’s not enough for me. I switched to G-Suite on the browser and it gives me the full desktop experience like this app should.

If you expect to put together a PowerPoint on your desktop and then transfer it to mobile, don&#39;t bother. The fonts and formatting get all mixed up. Basically there are no fonts installed other than the one default font apparently. Almost useless on the iPhone.

So please let the customers add customs fonts to the program thank you.
PPT for iPad is underpowered
by Reza on 2021/03/09 15:35
I’m a PowerPoint power user. I love the app. It is by far my most frequently used app. I am not just disappointed, but frustrated with PPT for iPad. Very basic functions are missing. For example, there is no word wrap! I think MSFT should now release this until - at a minimum - the basic formatting functions are available. I’m still a fan. I hope it improves and soon!

The least streamlined app
by Drew_Tuerck on 2021/03/07 22:32
This review goes for all of Microsoft 365 in general, not just PowerPoint. I had an assignment where I had to make a presentation and upload it to YouTube. However, I was using a free account through college, and there were no options to export as a video or any file format that works on YT. We then bought the family subscription, and the option still did not become available. After downloading the desktop app, going into “File” on the top menu and exporting it as an MP4, it finally worked. All this took place over the span of 3.5-4 hours. Terrible experience. Use Google Drive instead, it’s free and actually works.

Overly difficult to put text boxes and type successfully
by Sir Migraine on 2021/03/01 23:03
Having to use PowerPoint on mobile makes me want to smash my phone. Text boxes and typing are extremely difficult to place correctly and are very touchy and delicate. PowerPoint was made for computers, not phones. Barely usable if your computer ever isn’t available. It’ll get the job done, just four times longer than on a computer. Wouldn’t use if I didn’t have to.

Can’t easily point. Options are write or nothing. Sometimes syncing is flaky and it won’t let me save changes after an hour long lecture / editing session. Better than alternatives the rest of the time though.

Issue with formula display and contacting customer care
by sumocros on 2021/02/24 19:52
I&#39;m using office products for quiet long they work well on my PC n laptop. Recently I bought ipad. As a engineering student I use formulas and it is not showing formulas in iPad app. The plus minus signs gets vanished and symbols of derivate integration too. Subsumed they display but other times they are not. I tried to connect agent but sites redirects to multiple pages and gives error message at the end.
PowerPoint

Frustrated
by Brooke4592 on 2021/02/23 13:28
I am so fed up with powerpoint. It’s great for presentations and I use it for almost all my projects but the glitches are seriously getting on my nerves. Last week I spent over two hours finalizing a project and adding a bunch of slides just to come back to it today and see multiple error messages and “Changes could not be saved”. So now I have to waste another day re-doing over half of my powerpoint when I had been ready to send it in today. This isn’t the first time that this has happened. I can’t just lose all my work like this every time I use this app! (I’d made sure to save everything before leaving the app.)
Why a subscription???

BEST PRESENTATION APP EVER
by BassBoi1 on 2019/10/28 00:19
Literally, I don’t know how I would get through high-school without PowerPoint. It’s not the best app if you don’t get the office subscription, but if you do, this app, and all of the other Microsoft powered apps, go a REALLY long way. The suggestion system for it is absolutely spot-on in getting what you really want your presentation to look like. The transitions are limited, but you can usually get by by using the same one twice. I’ve wanted to express my absolute LOVE for PowerPoint for so long, and now seemed like the right time to do it. I just wanna say thanks to Microsoft, their team, and everyone involved in making this almost flawless app!
Feels like a downgrade
by Batmanxxx2013 on 2020/11/30 16:31
I grew up with MS Office products, and I have always been a solid advocate of it. But I have to say that Power Point has been a let down so far, when it comes to using it on iPad. I have been dealing with the same problem, for several years now, reported it three times, and no has responded et alone fixed the problems/bugs: (1) On iPad Pro, converting PPT files to PDF is near impossible, when it comes to moderately sized PPT files (ie with a moderate load of images). It simply doesn’t convert. (2) Loading files that are already stored on the iPad takes forever, or is play do not reopen sometimes, and the system keeps trying and trying to open the file in what seems like forever. This problem seems to be less persistent when WiFi is turned off, but then that defies the whole point of being able to use many of the functionalities that are otherwise only available when you’re connected online. I am still a big fan/supporter, and only use Power Point for my presentation work, but I have to say that something’s got to give, eventually, f they don’t address such issues.
Missing basic functions, hard to navigate
by Alphadogtucker on 2020/07/21 02:30
The app has most of the formatting functions you’d expect, but what good are they if you cannot do basic editing? - To cut or copy text, you have to use a search function and type in “cut” or “copy.” But once you have text in the buffer, there’s no Paste function, not even using the search! Unlike most apps, press-and-hold only brings up a magnifying glass. - The auto zoom function has two degrees: whole page, where you cannot edit text, and zoomed in, where you can edit text but can only can see the left half or right half of the page. If the cursor is at one end of a line and you want to move the cursor to the other end of a line, you have to Zoom out and then zoom back in. - You’ll get tired of the above flaws very quickly. So I added a text editor app to create the text and then copy it into PowerPoint. Then I tore my hair out for hours, looking for a way to paste the text into PowerPoint for final formatting. If the vital cut, copy, and paste functions exist, they’re hidden better than Jimmy Hoffa’s body. - My advice: find another app unless the text in your slides is extremely simple.
New update is not an improvement
by Deezey311 on 2017/10/10 14:04
The new update is a huge down grade. You now get glittery pens - but functionality has been lost. I used to be able to shrink the size of the powerpoint slides and type in the note section along side - which was carried throughout the powerpoint file. Now every time I switch a slide, it is MAXIMIZED to the largest size possible - and I have to re-shrink it down again and again. Even worse, the slide can no longer be moved to the side to accommodate the note space so that you can view the slide and notes fully and simultaneously side-by-side. Not only that, but every time I minimize the application to jump on safari powerpoint restarts completely, and I lose my place in the slides. These complaints may not seem like a huge deal, but for someone who is in PA school and sits through 6 hour lectures, these are huge disappointments and annoyances. I’ve used powerpoint since I began college 6 years ago, but I will be using another app if these problems aren’t fixed soon.
Too much flash and too little standard features
by Phoibos on 2019/04/05 22:41
I really do like having PowerPoint (and the rest of the office suite) on my phone and my iPad. And there’s a lot I can do on them to edit a presentation. But while Microsoft keeps adding pretty things, there are very basic functions that are missing, making it sometimes impossible to use this in a work environment. My currently biggest beefs: 1. No ability to select and copy/move/delete multiple slides. A slide sorter would be nice for doing that but I’d just go with the ability to do it in the existing interface. But moving slides from one presentation to another is just too painful if you have to do it one slide at a time. 2. Missing highlighting option. Not because I can’t highlight text (would be nice but I can do without that) but because I can’t get rid of highlighting someone else put in a slide (using a different version of PowerPoint). This is absolutely annoying because there is NO workaround. There are other, smaller user interface issues, but they are annoying, not insurmountable. In general, for most purposes, this is a good app. Just beware that it is missing features that you are used to from the desktop version.
What happened with the latest version??
by Bdawgno1 on 2018/08/28 01:08
My slide show keeps blurring slides and crashing after showing few slides. Up until your recent update, the app has been working perfectly on my iPad Pro (12.7 inch model). With the last update, I cannot use this app because of not only what I described above, but also the app freezes. Typically happens after swiping (with or without slide show) after 10-15 slides into the presentation. I’m running latest iOS 11 on my iPad. However, the app works fine from my iPhone X (running beta iOS 12, beta 8). Can you please fix this issue so I can rate this app 5 stars again? This is with version 2.16.1 (your latest version available). I have full Microsoft yearly membership for editing PPT, XLS, DOC files via the apps. Dear developer: feel free to email me if you need screenshots. I’ve tried this on several different slide decks from iPad. Same results unfortunately.
Corrupted File
by Axnacion541 on 2018/08/12 03:04
I had a very important presentation to make and at the last minute there was an issue saving it and it got severely corrupted apparently. It hasn&#39;t opened since. This is such a shame and now I understand why Microsoft and Apple are so reluctant to fuse together for projects such as this. It&#39;s a complete disaster; an utter failure of the highest regard. One would expect more of not one, but two multi-billion dollar companies, allegedly attempting to (re)design a program which has already been on the market for over a decade. Seriously, it is as if a novice, trainee student from a back-alley detention center in Detroit was hired to design this app for a net sum of thirty cents. A disgrace. Additionally, some of the formats for inserted pictures actually reduce the quality of the photos themselves. This is also a problem with the PC version. I&#39;m glad to be able to witness the headway Microsoft has made towards addressing these deficiencies. Or, perhaps lack thereof.
Glaring flaw
by The Biker on 2018/12/05 20:43
I use PowerPoint on my PC and iPad, with the files I edit sitting in my iCloud Drive. I rehearsed an early draft of my presentation on my iPad then spent several days working on my presentation on my PC. I then opened up PowerPoint on my iPad and it overwrote the version of my presentation saved by my PC to iCloud, without warning, with the old version I’d opened days before on my iPad. I lost several days of work due to the bizarre auto save feature. If I’d waited to put the presentation on my iPad until the morning of my presentation I would have nothing to show after it overwrote the most recent version. Why PowerPoint would auto save when there’s a more recent time stamp on the system file is beyond me. This is a fatal flaw that makes this program one star to me. Otherwise it’s a great app, but I could have lost my job due to the overwrite so its hard to recommend this app to anyone working on presentations that matter.
Arabic Language is Broken
by PAssword@23 on 2020/10/13 07:34
I’m writing this based on my experience using PowerPoint on a Mac, not a mobile device. There is a serious issue with PowerPoint when you try to type in both English and Arabic in the same sentence. It is extremely common in the Middle East for someone to need to add an English word in parenthesis in the middle of an Arabic sentence. However, PowerPoint will jumble up the words and punctuation when you do this. This is a serious issue that affects more than 420 million Arabic speakers in the world. Microsoft needs to address this because PowerPoint is nearly unusable for those who need to create presentations in both English and Arabic. * What’s strange is that Microsoft Word can handle the two languages together better than PowerPoint. Although Word is not perfect either in the area.
Not nearly the functionality as it should have on iPad!!
by Katyb113 on 2017/12/05 01:22
I’m really disappointed by this app. First of all I have trouble working with large ppts that I’ve saved to Dropbox. I often get a notice that I “no longer have access to the file” and have to save a copy...which then doesn’t open. So sometimes I’m just screwed. This is frustrating. Further, there is no timing or recording option in the “view slide show” tab. You can’t select multiple objects at once, the lasso select tool doesn’t work for me, and it’s very hard to move around on the slide. Maybe I’m just not used to it, but it doesn’t have nearly the level of functionality as the full version on a Mac. So frustrating because I would love to edit, save, and practice my presentations on the go. This is a major reason why I bought an iPad.
Paid version needs feature parity with PowerPoint Online
by JustinRJackson on 2019/03/19 01:39
Right now the iOS version (even paid) is pretty weak at best. While I can review the file and look at it, only the most basic of functionality is carried over. Things like SmartArt are a constant thing I need to edit which is completely unavailable in the iOS version. What’s more, is while it is available in PPT Online, if you have the iOS version installed, trying to launch a PPT from any other program (Teams, OneDrive, even the browser) simply loads the iOS version. In order to do basic editing of even slightly more robust things like SmartArt requires me to constantly uninstall the iOS version, do my edits in the browser, then reinstall the iOS version once complete. Please get at least feature parity with the Online version.
Useful Teaching Aid
by dougsmith1977 on 2018/01/17 18:57
I’m using Powerpoint mobile to record teaching screencasts and find it very useful. ONE SUGGESTION: Could you add different colored pens and highlighters directly to the quick access bar at the top in presentation mode? When I tap to change color, that appears on my screen. If it were simply in the bar at the top and didn’t drop down, then I could simply crop that part of the video before I post it. I’m guessing there are others who would be interested in a similar feature. Thanks!
Download too BIG!
by BestAppsUser on 2018/08/19 22:40
I will no longer use Wifi - the artificial limits on download are about to make me delete your LARGE App. I have a case at Apple and of course they blame you and the carrier - the support agent agrees it is “Stupid”. I wonder why it’s okay to stream Gigs of a baseball game or a movie but downloading an app that is Broken is a NO NO. MS NOT that differentiating these days. Same for other MS apps. I like Outlook but LookOUT to be gone too. And since I own the company that buys 365 and Azure gone is a BIG gone. Tick. Tick, tick. I’m you are now aware and I can let other users know all is well in a few days or so, therefore rating will go to a deserved location. As I always say, “ when it doesn’t make sense it is about the Cents. Let’s use some common sense, and worry less about the small cents. Ready set GO! - drdave
Good but wish I didn’t run in to so many dead ends
by Igiveadam on 2018/04/17 14:56
60% of the time, it does what I need, but there are some basic functionalities that are just missing and it doesn’t make sense why. You can’t search or replace copy in a presentation. Forget about copying multiple slides from one presentation to another (you have to close your presentation, open the one you need slides from, copy a single slide, close that presentation, open the first again, copy it in, and then repeat that process for every slide you need to copy in! Come on!). Honestly, at some times it feels like Microsoft is just messing with Apple users. “Fine we’ll give you our software for iPads but good luck getting anything done! Should have bought a surface!”
Save a copy
by Icosace1022 on 2018/04/15 22:38
Someone is currently editing this review. To edit this review please save a copy. Yeah, I’m playing with you. But seriously, every time I close a document and then open it later I see the description above, yet with the word ”document“ instead of ”review.“ And often it doesn’t even have to be later, it could be a few minutes after closing it. I’m not going to create five or ten copies of my work all around my files because you guys have a glitch in your save/autosave mechanism. Tell me how I am going to get done my presentations for my college courses!? This is actually important! I know it’s not all about me, but fixing this glitch could help everybody with the same issues and more. Thanks for reading, but I can’t fully thank Microsoft, Apple, whoever is in control of this app, etc. until this is fixed.
New update is subpar
by Beveerrrrrllllyyyy on 2017/10/12 04:03
I used to love this app when I’m taking notes on my IPad. However, its slowing me down and annoying me. Here’s why: 1. Whenever I try to type something in the notes section, the slide doesnt resize anymore to fit the screen with the section open. Even if I try to minimize the slide, you can’t move it to the side to keep the whole thing in view. 2. The names of my presentations are disappearing! For example, I’ll have a presentation that I named “Ch. 14 Cardiac Assessment.” Now it’ll only show me “Ch. 14.” I’m getting confused in trying to open the correct presentation! 3. When I try to save my presentation from one drive to another, it’ll save the presentations in both drives instead of just transferring it to another. I don’t know if that bothers anyone else, but it bothers me. PLEASE FIX THIS WITH A NEW UPDATE. OR JUST BRING BACK THE PREVIOUS UPDATE!
Mostly good, room for improvement
by Shiloh Graves on 2018/10/15 16:14
This app is mostly good, but I have encountered an error when taking notes in presentation mode. Sometimes I the ability to swipe between slides goes away and every stroke I make to attempt to do so just puts ink on the slide. It often takes many attempts to get the functionality bar to drop down from the top so that I can exit and re-enter presentation mode, which then usually fixes the problem for a time. In general, I think Microsoft could improve the functionality of the PowerPoint app to include the features of OneNote within a ppt presentation format and do away with one note altogether, thus eliminating the need to export ppts into one note.
works pretty well
by Sir Jeff of Lee on 2019/11/10 11:40
It works similar to editing PowerPoint in a Teams site. Much functionality is missing, but you can get the basic job done. One thing that doesn&#39;t work on the iPad, for me, is that when I select text, I no longer get the pop up menu (e.g. select, select all, copy, paste, etc) this is VERY inconvenient. I have a couple work arounds for some of those elements, but it forces me to have to jump through several steps to do a simple action. This used to work, and then on a recent app upgrade, the menu disappeared. Hope I&#39;m not the only one and they can fix this pretty major bug.
Issues with saving to iPad in most recent update
by _willknight on 2019/05/23 15:49
There’s a bug with the new update. When trying to save items to my iPad, I have to save the item, close out the app as the app freezes, re-open the app, save the item again in which the option to replace the item comes up since it’s already been saved as a zero kb empty item, and when I replace it this seems to bypass the glitch. It’s been like this for weeks. Figured it would have been fixed by now. I didn’t have this issue prior to this update. Not the end of the world, but very annoying for a grad student who has new PowerPoint lectures to save each day.
OneDrive Rocks!
by WFPB eye doc on 2019/01/26 16:33
I actively use five devices, and four are portable. Four from Apple, the fifth is a Windows device. Being able to grab any device at any time and add a new thought to a presentation is quite the luxury, and previously many of those transient thoughts were lost. Navigating the iPad versions was a bit of a puzzle but I finally found all the functionality that I had learned how to use on my big computers. Having it is easy to edit and share presentations saves a lot of pre-presentation stress. Philip Paden WFPB eye doc
What more can be said
by JBC1019 on 2019/09/22 13:21
PowerPoint provides a fun and interesting way to convey information. Not all the information one needs is interesting, but PowerPoint can make conveying it fun. I use these for professional lectures and Sunday School classes. If you take advantage of the ease of adding multimedia you can incorporate cartoons, funny pictures or internet videos to perk up your listeners. With a little work you can use the animation feature to capture attention. The auto design can add ideas and produce eye catching slides.
Another Numbingly Lame App by MS
by Pdx_biker9 on 2018/09/21 22:48
I have to use office 365 at work and was told oneDrive was great to use since I could edit my files on personal devices while out of the office. Well I’m on vacation and need to send out a report. Got onto onedrive - clugey file structure but worked. I opened the file in ppt to make a few small changes and ... impossible. The app won’t let me make a simple edit to an html text on a page. When I exit it saves my mistakes without asking, so now I’ve screwed up my file. I can’t make a SIMPLE change to my ppt to get my report out. I’ll stick with vpn and a full sized computer or convert the entire thing to IOS files and edit with apple’s stuff next time. Another waste of time trying to get MS software to work.
Please Update ASAP
by LostSalez on 2018/08/25 18:10
I have been using the same two 50-75 slide presentations daily for 2 years with minimal issues. Since update 2.16.2 crashes occur half way into every presentation. The crash occurs on different slides every time. When crash occurs I can only describe it as the slide turns into the equivalent of old school UHF TV fuz ...only instead of black and white the pixelation is colored. All slides remain this way until app is closed out. I updated to the latest version of iOS and deleted and reinstalled App and all presentations to no avail. I deeply regret having updates to app download automatically, as past versions worked adequately for my limited needs. If Microsoft cannot play nice with Apple please just pull Apps form the marketplace.
Updates needed
by olliebeaners on 2017/11/14 20:47
Please improve the UI of saving documents to places other than Microsoft OneDrive. I understand you want to encourage usage, but there needs to be better options for other cloud saving and local saving options that are more immediately accessible. MORE IMPORTANTLY, there is a serious issue when using PowerPoint with a Bluetooth keyboard and my iPad Pro 10.5 inch where the text input lags almost a full two seconds!! This is a PowerPoint only issue, as the text input delay is not present anywhere else in the system, and even not a factor of a demanding program because non-PowerPoint commands, such as multitasking or volume control respond immediately when using PowerPoint. It makes PowerPoint almost unbearable.
Several issues, please fix
by Cash1129 on 2021/01/27 19:10
Two very annoying issues, please look into this. All of the Microsoft apps have the same problem. 1- They add random lines across the document when you’re using “draw” mode (Apple Pencil) to take notes just from the heat of the pencil, this happens when my pencil is not even touching the document but placed above it right before I draw the next letter or word. (This occurs when I have “draw with touch” turned off) 2- then size of the “pen” changes randomly for no reason. Making some words or full sentences bold and then goes back to the normal pencil size. Specific to PowerPoint: when I am writing notes using Apple Pencil on top of the notes/slides that I downloaded for school, it constantly selects the text boxes and moves them around at the slightest touch. I want to be able to just take notes on top of slides. I don’t like doing so in presenter mode because you can’t change the size of the font and everything comes out as extremely bold handwriting. There’s also not undo button in presenter mode. Please fix these issues
Great except for some small things
by Socrates0015 on 2019/09/29 21:44
Really my only issues are that 1) on the iPad, I can’t have two PowerPoint files open split screen and 2) I can’t adjust the size of the side bar that shows all of the slides or the size of the notes window. Some other basic features of PowerPoint are missing from the iPad version, but those are the ones affecting me the most right now. If those things are possible and I just don’t know how to do them, then I apologize.
Great concept but unreliable
by Mdonat1105 on 2018/08/21 13:21
Was very excited initially about the potential of using PowerPoint on my iPad. I do lots of presentations and it’s not always convenient to use a laptop. So I was hoping this would be the ideal solution. Unfortunately, it’s not very stable. I have attempted to use it about 20 times on my iPad and almost every presentation I’ve done it randomly closes on its own. In addition there are many times I work on the presentation on my desktop and those changes do not always populate on my iPad through the use of Dropbox. I thought initially maybe it was dropbox but none of the other the information that I’ve access that way has been an issue. Hopefully they will work these bugs out.
A bit quirky with Dropbox, buggy PDF export
by donovan1983 on 2017/09/24 14:46
I use PowerPoint primarily to convert my professors’ PowerPoint lectures into PDF and it used to work adequately for that. It often took multiple tries because for some reason the app would just not be able to upload the exported file to Dropbox and would not give any warnings that it failed, instead leaving a zero-byte PDF in Dropbox. When it did work, the PDFs were the same as what the Windows desktop version produced. In the most recent update, however, exported PDFs have a box drawn in the upper-left corner of every single slide that is not in the original file. The desktop version doesn’t do this and neither does Apple’s Keynote iOS app. This breaks my only real use for this app.
Microsoft gets it right partnering with Apple
by WAR1337 on 2019/06/24 02:16
I typically don’t write reviews - but in this case one is much needed. Microsoft does it right in partnering with Apple. Unifying workflows on teams is where this product really shines. This app makes it fluid and easy to link up projects and presentation workflows. You can star on an iPad, continue on a Mac, and finish up via office 365. For those who haven’t leveraged the cloud, I highly suggest you consider this product. You u won’t be disappointed!
Terrible File Handling
by GoogleTool on 2019/01/07 19:22
It’s nice to be able to see PowerPoint file on my iPad. However, attempts to edit them are fraught with difficulty. Particularly annoying is the way the App handles cursor placement and navigation. But my greatest concern is the way this App (and all other MS Office Apps for iOS) handle files. MS has clearly structured file management to favor One Drive. Files can be opened from and saved to One Drive without difficulty. Any other file location is a problem. For example, my attempts to open files from Google Drive lead to files that are Read Only and for which I must Save A Copy. When trying to Save A Copy, with a different name, the operation Cannot Be Completed if the destination is Google Drive. Sick.
Not bad so far
by IntrepidElectronics on 2018/12/31 11:26
I use PowerPoint a lot (the desktop version) and was still using Office 2010, so I thought I&#39;d give 365 a try. So far I am reasonably impressed by what I can accomplish on a mobile device--at least on one with a large screen. I miss all the desktop shortcuts, but I imagine there are many for the mobile version that I just haven&#39;t learned about yet, or perhaps I need to use it with a mobile keyboard. I like the automatic online storage and easy access from all my devices. So...so far, so good.
Some features don’t exist and it’s difficult to transfer photos
by Kalonakai808 on 2019/03/04 00:52
There isnt a spell check feature if you’re using an IPad, that’s a bit irritating because THATin the least should be standard regardless what kind of device you use with this program. Also every time I wanted to add a photo by dragging and dropping (the easy way) I’d have to exit out of the program and reenter to do so. Instead I have take up space by saving photos to my camera roll, it’s a more time consuming and tedious task especially if you’re creating a presentation that has a lot of photos.
One issue
by Anyoneburgeoff on 2021/01/05 21:21
When used in conjunction with MS Teams SharePoint (not sure about other situations) it seems that PowerPoint (and I think other MS apps as well) open the previously used file, not the actual intended file, the first time - it takes a second “opening” of the file, to make it open the correct file. (You could do some testing to find out if it is simply always one file behind or if it only works if you open the same file twice.... anyway). Aside from that it works very well.
Needs to Grow Up
by BPBear on 2018/02/17 19:20
Very limited utility. Cursor hard to track/locate on slides being composed. But worst of all - cannot handle file locations other than an arcane set apparently blessed by Microsoft. For example, Google Drive not treated as a legitimate ‘place’ from which files can be loaded. When attempting to open/download files from Google Drive under the ‘More’ submenu, the files start to download, then consistently get the message ‘Sorry something went wrong, this file cannot be opened.’ Well these files open just fine from the desktop version of PowerPoint. Until the iOS app can handle all desktop files, it will be of very limited use.
PowerPoint
by is every nockname taken? on 2019/08/30 15:05
Love this app! Helps me bc I don’t have a laptop to work on, so I can use my phone. Sometimes it’s a little glitchy, and I can’t insert any symbols, but other than those two things, it’s been going well. I’m currently working on a PowerPoint about all my knowledge on bunnies so my parent will let me get one! It’s been going great! I think I’m convincing them.😊😊 Anyways, I definitely recommend this app to people who don’t have laptops and just phones. 5 stars ⭐️!!!
Small issue
by nursedude7 on 2018/02/19 16:53
On iPad Pro while using presenter view on Apple TV and drawing with apple pencil the markings appear on the left of where the actual drawing is then ghosts to where it actually is. This is very distracting and a downside to utilizing what can be an amazing feature if fixed. This does not seem to be a problem when drawing on slides outside of presenter view but the whole purpose of presenter view is to have other information hidden from learners.
Useful for on-the-go, terrible stability
by taomeister on 2019/05/27 02:35
Using this on the iPad Pro I expected smoother performance, but loading simple PPT’s with light pictures and graphics has led to lots of freezing / saving errors, even when working offline or saving to a local iPad storage instead of relying on the cloud. It’s also missing a crucial feature - being able to compress or specify image quality to a shareable size for email / print. This often leads to 100mb+ presentations or 20+mb PDFs. As is it’s a good solution for on the go deck tweaks but still not ready for prime time use without a laptop.
Cumbersome!
by Mld2416 on 2019/05/05 18:31
I am totally frustrated with this application. It has so many glitches I can only do a couple of things, close the application, open it back. I order to be able to do what I want, I need to get out of it again, and again, and again because it continually gets unworkable unless I close it and reopen numerous times. Also, to change the font size or do any changes to the narrative, I have to delete the entire quote or paragraph, make selections then rewrite. To move any pictures, rearrange it’s very cumbersome, since I have to close the application and reopen again and again until I get it right. FIX THE GLITCHES. I’m done! I’ll get something that works right.
Please become smarter not dumber

This is driving me crazy. I have worked so hard to make a PowerPoint presentation and it won’t let me upload it to OneDrive it only keeps making folders instead of actually sending anything into it. Then I go to recent to open the file and sorry, something we wrong and it can’t open the file. I remember back when I used to do everything of my phone. I was able to add videos into the slides and make hyperlinks and all. Now it’s so limited that you can do. We’re at 2019 and we should advance and move forward not go backwards. Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave how dumb apple has become under Tim Cooks and it’s with everything too!
Very convenient
by Bmv96 on 2019/04/29 17:28
It works perfectly, very convenient for school as you can read lecture presentations on the go. It is also pretty simple to create your own slideshow, since it has similar tools to the desktop version. I have not experienced any issues yet after using the app for 4+ years. I cannot think of any improvements that could be made to the app as it is user-friendly. 5 stars
5 star reviews are not truthful
by Tech should make life easier on 2019/09/12 18:09
This app is clearly generating good reviews themselves or paying for them. It is no where near worthy of 4.7 stars. I don’t understand the point of having a sign in and personalized profile if the information is not going to translate between multiple devices. If I work on a presentation from my computer then try to sign in via my iPhone it is not there. I consistently have to email myself my presentations then open them and save them on the new device. I have had this problem for many years and it seems like they have no intention of correcting the bugs in their software. I expect better from a notable company.
Give me full blown PowerPoint, not the watered down version.

As a graphic designer I edit and design presentations for many of my clients, and while I get a lot of control on Desktop powerpoint, I can’t get half of what I want done on the iPad version. It’s awful when I’m traveling with my iPad and I can’t get in and simply edit basic things like master slides. Until this is a full version of Powerpoint, I’ll continue to edit everything in Keynote (Which is just as full featured as the desktop version) and export PDFs for my clients. I can’t even describe how frustrated Microsoft Office on the iPad makes me as a professional.
Google slides does the same thing
by Charlette12543 on 2019/10/19 21:12
Listen, the iPad app has an enormous amount of glitches. I can’t make a presentation without wanting to scream. Some of that is the fault of me hating doing presentations for class, but when every time I want to insert a photo, a design idea tab pops up and make me click on it, it gets a little frustrating. Not to mention the photos disappearing, difficulty moving photos, flipping between slides on accident with a useless gesture, or the horrendous text boxes. Google slides may be bad at times, but powerpoint isn’t any better
Excellent app for iPad Pro, slightly buggy
by mp619 on 2020/10/05 14:02
This is an excellent and essential app for all students. It allows me to write on slides as I am following along to the lecture in class. The only downside for me is that with heavy usage of this app (I am probably on it 8+ hours a day), the app shuts itself down when trying to open a new presentation. This forces me to have to delete and redownload the app, almost every other day. Until that issue is fixed, I am leaving my review at 4 stars.
Really wish I could love this...

Have used PowerPoint for years, but this iOS version of the Office suite is completely unusable on iOS. It is massively underpowered compared to its desktop version, and completely unintuitive in terms of the layout of the options. Add to that it’s a massive memory and space hog (typical of Microsoft bloatware) and there is unacceptable lag using my Bluetooth keyboard. No problems in other iOS apps, mind you, but it takes a full 2 seconds for keystrokes to be recorded on screen when I’m using any MS product. Can’t justify the obscene price they’re asking for a subscription when they can’t even get typing text to work properly, can I?
PowerPoint on my iPad
by 1970Pattie on 2018/09/20 15:36
I have recently retired and begun using an iPad, wanting to untether from a home computer. I purchased a PowerPoint and 360 subscription for my iPad. I was able to easily create a nice slide presentation including diagrams and photos, so I rate that aspect 5 stars. I haven’t found a way to convert my slides to a handout with 4 or 6 slides to a page, and haven’t gotten an answer from Help, so no stars for that. Overall, I like the program, and hope I can find all the functions I want on it.
Great until you write too much
by Joshthebear64 on 2018/11/30 23:50
I use PowerPoint for direct note taking in class and I love it. My biggest complaint is that if I’m writing extensive notes on the PowerPoints the app begins to slow down and freeze. This has been a frequent issue of mine on more than just PowerPoint. I have experienced freezing and slow down on Word (far more than any other) and OneNote (after I’ve written the equivalent of 3-5 lectures worth of notes). Also the hand resting note taking works, but I feel could be drastically improved.
Claim of “full function with 365 subscription” is bunk!
by RrtssMom on 2017/10/11 14:53
I have a prof who releases slides minutes before class, and I take notes on them, but with out note taking options in PowerPoint I have to export and when that happens half the text is oversized and doesn’t convert properly. PowerPoint app doesn’t even work well with other Microsoft apps!i have to use my computer to convert to pdf properly, and then put the document on my tablet- not gonna happen moments before class! Allow us to “print” slides and note sheets set up, like on computers, from this app to others in pdf form! AND keep the text the size in the file- STOP CHANGING THE TEXT SIZE!!!
Not for serious presentations
by ThisExperienceWasHorrible on 2020/12/10 01:51
I was really excited to test this app out since I have a pen to do drawings with, and I had high expectations... for the first hour of using the app I tried to save my document and it froze trying to save. It took more than an hour and I was really hoping my work was saved, luckily it did. I check the document and I noticed that it had auto save on. I thought that was great! After doing work for three hours I accidentally press the back button and nothing was saved. This app seriously has autosave on and it wasn’t able to save any of my work?? So disappointed and irritated.
