Battery killer
by H-Town 1980 on 2020/06/03 07:21
I used to use Excel on my phone at work for log taking for several hours per day and never charge my phone at work. Recently 20 minutes of usage will take me down about 4% a minute. I switched phones (newer phone) and it still uses FAR too much battery and both phones get warm.

Excel limits better uses of IPad
by Mr.Ney on 2020/06/01 19:55
Using excel in IPad is a nightmare,the experience is not good unlike to macbook or windows laptop. My expection using the spreadsheets for office works failed after finding a number of limitations that makes me more frustrated. So don’t buy it if you intend to use for officiaal/business uses.

It’s a trap
by With a "Y" on 2020/05/29 22:15
Unless you pay Microsoft, any spreadsheets created are device specific. Waste of time & effort; use Apple’s Numbers app instead.
Poor features
by Sergiop68 on 2020/05/28 15:11
The iPad today has the same functions like a notebook/laptop, so why are the Excel features like a phone. Microsoft must improve this, because with the keyboard, 13” screen, and hardware better than a netbook, the features should be all!!!

Logged In but No Docs for You!
by C Dew on 2020/05/25 01:02
On my iPhone, I created a spreadsheet and saved it. Even though my iPad shows that I am successfully logged in, not one of my Office documents is available! Some BS about a server not being available, which is ironic given that I am able to access the spreadsheet on my iPhone even after getting the BS message about it being unavailable. Correction: It’s not ironic, it’s moronic!

You can’t do very much with this app. You can’t have multiple windows open using split screen, can’t move doc to flash drive without going to the website, crashes frequently, can’t move multiple files into a folder. Only good if you kinda need excel. If you’re trying to use this on your iPad for work, forget it. Wasn’t worth the free trial

Almost as functional as the computer version
by Romanthefourth on 2020/05/14 05:53
I used to teach excel in computer science at the University of New Mexico. I had a hard time believing a phone app could be as powerful as the excel program on computers. You’d be surprised how much you can do from a phone app. It has formulas, charts, tables, and can even suggest numerical data such as averages when you select groups of data. It has a scanner where you can take a picture of a chart and it imports the data to a chart. Great product.
No iPadOS 13 Suppor

It doesn’t sync to OneDrive
by yongkoh on 2020/05/12 18:05
I was very excited that I could continue my work from PC to my iPad Pro away from my desk. The functions were pretty much comparable and I don’t see any missing functions for what I need. Until...it doesn’t sync back to OneDrive. I spent a few hours trying to figure out, the PC version didn’t have my changes on iPad and my iPad still have the new changes but didn’t upload to Onedrive. I tried to save it several times and I should have Save a Copy but I didn’t. Finally, I tried to open the Onedrive version on my ipad and I lost all my work on IPad. This is very disappointing and I don’t think I will use this app again.

No mouse support and missing basic functionality
by 01... on 2020/05/11 15:09
Since its introduction, the mouse has worked seamlessly with nearly all apps on my iPad Pro. The stark exception is Excel. iPad Pro with keyboard, mouse, and pen is a powerful work platform. It is a shame Microsoft’s Excel doesn’t work with a mouse and is missing basic functionality. Will be dropping Office subscription.
Great App, but.....
by DRBM on 2020/05/11 13:13
This app is great and is very easy to use. As a 365 subscriber, i have the ability to use the full version, and it works very well, except for one thing. It needs split screen support for the iPad. If it had that, it would be worthy of five stars. Since Word and PowerPoint have that feature, I can’t see why this can’t be added for Excel. I will stay tuned.......

CSV export!
by Brian Doherty on 2020/05/09 21:58
Every time I think MS is finally “getting it”, I run into some bone-headed limitation like this one. Give me a break! There doesn’t seem to be any way to take an Excel file and, on the iPad, save it as CSV. I should have known by the way desktop Excel has always used a janky method for saving as CSV, complete with ridiculous “warnings”, and “can’t be saved in this format!” nonsense. And every new version of Excel, they decide to spend time making the warnings even more janky. Wow.

Annoying sometimes
by jman007bond on 2020/05/08 05:08
The biggest peeve I have with Excel for iPad is that if I download a spreadsheet from iCloud Drive I started on my MacBook Pro, I have to save another copy to edit it on my iPad. Which defeats the purpose of using excel on my iPad.

NOT FOR STEM MAJORS
by An Aggrevated Student on 2020/05/01 05:37
Using this tablet that’s suppose to be a “laptop replacer” (aka the iPad Pro), it’s ridiculous that the Microsoft Office apps are still limited to mobile use, instead of having a “desktop” mode since this is “more than a tablet”. I can’t use all the features as a I would be able to on a laptop. As a STEM major, this complicates everything. This app needs to be updated to have all those missing features so that all us dweebs who thought the iPad Pro would actually run like (or better) than a Surface Pro could finish school without theses dumb limitations.

Microsoft Corporation is Retarded
by M:E/M)O(R\Y on 2020/04/30 22:14
I don’t care what this is, the app. All I care about is hating on Microsoft. Maybe they don’t make things, but when something is made, they infect it with Microsoft and then make it crappy and stupid. I once had Minecraft on my PC. Always have owned it, until I wanted to play it. Then it told me to buy it, AGAIN, for 30 more dollars. Then I redone loaded the new Modern Warfare, it originally costed 100$ or 60$ or something like that. To me, that’s a lot of money, same with 30$. I’m only - what? Thirteen. I got onto the new Modern Warfare after having to reinstall it 3 times because I thought it was glitched, then it said I could only play the stupid game mode - Warzone. So if you want to kill Microsoft with me before it makes you re-buy all of your games, then join me, we must eliminate and terminate Microsoft. For the better.

by leuc2009 on 2020/04/29 14:14
It’s almost been a year since iPadOS and Microsoft still does not have the option to have more then one window open at once in Excel. I don’t know one person who uses Excel for business that operates on one workbook at a time. Very disappointing and makes the app nearly pointless...

OK, But Needs Some Work
by mjriley on 2020/04/27 20:32
The Excel for iPad app is a solid app, but is missing some things that would make it a much better experience for more power users. The ability to open multiple Excel apps at once. Would be great to have two spreadsheets open at once. Secondly, and I hope this is coming soon is support for trackpads and mice (including Apple’s Magic Keyboard). This would allow users to better work within spreadsheets.
It works well.
by Dillydally213 on 2020/04/27 16:42
I gave it 5 stars but feel compelled to add that I like working with an actual keyboard and mouse; so I don’t use this app to create spreadsheets or to make large-scale revisions.
Using an IPad
by Rebelzombie422 on 2020/04/27 15:50
I’m currently using the IPad Pro and this device is such a beast and so powerful. We should be aloud to have access to the full Microsoft Office experience.

Typical buggy Microsoft product
by Uta Buuta Solo? on 2020/04/25 17:32
I am now re-installing this app for the 3rd time in as many weeks because it gets stuck on the load screen (Excel logo). Does Microsoft even have a QA dept anymore? I sincerely doubt it. Anyway, it used to let me edit Excel docs in my DropBox but now because of the load freeze and reinstalls this app has become a typical Microsoft buggy mess that I don’t even bother using anymore. And they want people to pay for an Office 365 personal account? ROLMAO.

Not for Engineering
by That Maurer Kid on 2018/08/31 04:53
I use my iPad Pro for everything college. Literally everything. I type papers on the Microsoft Word app, make Power Points on Microsoft’s PowerPoint app, take notes, do online assignments, play games, listen to music, watch school related videos WHILE taking notes, etc etc. I do know that some features are left out on Microsoft apps since I’m using an Apple product and they DO NOT go unnoticed. Such features I have been able to go without and many people probably don’t use them often. When it comes to Microsoft’s Excel app, too many features are left out and the app is almost rendered useless for engineering work. I need to be able to manipulate line graphs, scatter plots, and data and this app doesn’t allow me to do so. If I have 2 columns of data, I need to plot one versus the other, and this app doesn’t allow me to do so. Then once I do that, I need to be able to see all the data that comes with the graph that is generated, like the r^2 value and setting tolerances for trend lines etc. Maybe it was a far fetched idea in the first place to think I could use an iPad for all my college engineering work, but its frustrating when I can do literally everything else on my iPad faster, easier, and more convenient than with a laptop, EXCEPT for Microsoft Excel. Literally the only drawback I have with my iPad. I get Office 365 through college so I’m still paying Microsoft for ALL of its features, but not getting them. Disappointing.
Why do I suddenly need a Office 360 subscription??
by Ya, right. on 2019/01/12 19:44
I like being able to access my excel files from my iPhone. Works great for simple editing and updating. But suddenly I can not edit an excel file that I had created on my laptop and had been able to edit it on my iPhone before. It opens read only and when I try to save it to another name or location it does not allow it because I now must have an Office 360 subscription. I never had one to begin with. I have a one drive account, but that does not get me around this. WHY do I suddenly need an Office 360 subscription? It’s MY file; I created it OUTSIDE of this iPhone app. WHY are you holding me hostage? I can’t find an explanation for why this happened and why I now need the subscription. Google Sheets seems to work just fine and I am now using that instead. Are other Office apps going to do the same thing to me? Incidentally, if you get stuck by this, I finally got around not being able to write the file anywhere by mailing the file to myself from inside the app and then I opened it with Google Sheets.

I am using an iPad Pro 256GB Wifi + Cellular version and I am extremely disappointed on the speed and features of the app. Not sure if the app or iPad Pro is to blame but the vlookup, match functions are just not working as gracefully as it should be. Each time I input a number, it would take 5 seconds to return the correct values and it is just not acceptable on an advanced device like the iPad Pro. I have to admit that my spreadsheet has over 50,000 of rows, 30+ columns and 10+ spreadsheets but there are no macros and images used at all. And for anyone who relies on Excel to process this huge amount of data, this is just a very common scale of a spreadsheet, not to mention it is only 10MB. Either Apple or Mircosoft seriously needs to look into resolving this issue or there’s just no point of having this powerful application on the iPad.
iPad Pro 10.5 to iPad Pro 12.9 told 365 only $.99/mo WRONG!
by mjd2049 on 2019/01/19 18:01
My 10.5 Pro which I’ve been using for years was lost. I was deciding between the 10.5 & the 12.9 Pro. I told Apple Sales person that I mainly work in excel on a daily basis. I was told that I might find the 12.9” a Big improvement. I would have to purchase 365 to be able to update my spreadsheets but that it only costs $ .99 per month. I didn’t like the change that the upgrade would cause but purchased a 12.9 for over $100. Once at home I find that the 365 app cost 6.99/month or $84/yr. I should not have trusted the Apple sales agent and checked before purchase but dang, why should I have to. I certainly can afford the $84 but it’s the principal. I can afford it but I hate greed! I’m taking back the 12.9” and purchasing the 10.5” Pro which I was doing just fine with. Sometimes it’s the little things that count.
Good when it’s working
by Sundlie on 2018/01/26 15:48
I love being able to use Excel on my iPad Pro as it’s super easy to make adjustments on the go. I’ve got Office 365 and my documents are stored on OneDrive so I’m usually able to make changes and it shows up on my other devices. However at least once a week the app seems to forget my password and all my documents stop syncing. I have to sign in again and then it overwrites any changes I’ve made on my iPad since it decided to stop syncing. OneDrive has been doing weird stuff like this on all my laptops, desktops and tablets over the past few years. In fact the last time OneDrive seemed to be problem free was back when it was called SkyDrive. Hopefully Microsoft gets things figured out eventually. If not I’ll probably just switch over to Google Docs when my 365 subscription ends.
Don’t use this if you need it to work...
by Wrlitzr on 2019/12/19 18:33
I use excel to track my business miles on my iPad while I’m out in the field, and it seems like at least 3-5 times a week I have to completely uninstall and reinstall the app because it stops being able to open any files. It just says something went wrong and the file can’t be opened. I’m able to open the file on my phone and computer, it’s just this version of the app that has this problem. The first few times it happened I tried resetting the device and clearing any app cache I could get access to, but the only thing that would fix it was completely reinstalling. This is not a small app to be downloading several times per week over cellular... If it weren’t the only app capable of handling the specific formulas included in this spreadsheet I would definitely be using Google Sheets or Open Office instead... If you need a general use spreadsheet app I highly recommend looking at one of those instead to avoid this persistent pain in the neck...
Some of the iOS limitations are puzzling
by e-book lover on 2019/01/06 03:54
Overall, I’m very happy to have the convenience of using Excel on my iPad. I’m not a very sophisticated user, so the stripped down version is mostly workable for me. That said, some functions don’t seem to be present at all, and it’s puzzling why they aren’t included in the iOS version. I keep getting a ‘circular reference’ error in one spreadsheet, for instance, and can find no way to locate it using the iOS app. I finally went to my PC to resolve the error. Since all of Microsoft’s dubious ‘help’ seems to refer to the PC version, looking up ‘how to’ information can be an exercise in frustration. If there’s a chart that tells you which functions aren’t included in the app., it should be prominently displayed so as to avoid the many wasted minutes looking for something that just isn’t there.
You will lose your work!!! Don’t buy
by ABelieber on 2017/11/26 04:51
Bought the subscription to Office 365 because I wanted to use Microsoft Excel. First 2 projects I worked on went fine. My 3rd project was a huge one (a $800 fee for me). I worked on it for 6 hours when suddenly my work vanished ... disappeared right in front my eyes! I tried everything, but I could not get the document back. Came to the realization that while the “auto-save” feature was “on”, the app was not saving any of the work!! The Microsoft cloud had nothing! Made a quick research and found that this type of complaint has been posted by others going back to 2014!!! What??? IT HAS NOT BEEN FIXED??!! Clients have had the same 2 bad experiences (failure by the auto-save and the document disappearing) AND MICROSOFT HAS NOT ADDRESSED THIS ISSUE. So, despite buying the iPad Pro intending to use Excel, I now will have to buy a Window base laptop. Grrrrrrrrrr.
Love Excel, despise recent changes
by Batgirl0520 on 2017/10/11 20:10
At one time I would have given 5 stars as Excel is one of my favorite programs. But some recent changes have made this app almost unusable for me. I'd rather turn on my computer and wait to use that Excel instead of the app. If I try to scroll up and down with the key pad open, it usually closes the keypad on me. Opening it again every time is a pain. When I enter a number in a column and hit return, the keypad automatically reverts back to the text keys instead of the numbers. If you are entering numbers in a column, chances are you will want to keep entering numbers. Having it go back to text every time is obnoxious and totally a waste of time! If I select a cell with my finger, it is basically impossible to then select an adjacent cell. I need to tap one away from the one I actually need first and then go back.
So far, so good
by Urahmus on 2020/02/27 19:12
I consider myself an advanced Excel user and was skeptical of the limitations that would be imposed by the iPad version, but I have been pleasantly surprised so far. I have just started using the iPad version but have not yet encountered any major limitations for the activities I use 90% of the time. The cell borders options are not as complete as in the PC version, but that’s a cosmetic thing I can live with. The program integrates fantastically with the cloud, and all updates are immediately available on other devices. Very convenient to use the iPad for quick additions to a sheet, without having to go to my desktop computer, boot it up, do my work, and copy it to a thumb drive or email it to myself. This is easy to get used to...
Please FIX the apple pencil support
by RMKang on 2019/04/09 18:45
It’s great, not having to carry around my macbook pro and use excel for work on the iPad. I’ve gotten used to and actually prefer to use Excel on iPad for a quick project. However, after the update for Apple Pencil 2, program does not respond upon opening sheets, switching tabs, etc when you are using the apple pencil unless you tap on the Draw tab, and tap again on Home tab. It wasn’t doing that before the update. This does not make for smooth, quick work process, having to switch back and forth. I talked to the Tech Support about this, and was told that basically it is what it is now and that I’d have to wait for MS to fix this issue. Sooner than later would be great. Also, if there is a way that allows multiple sheets open at the same time, that’d be wonderful, but one can only dream.
Simple necessary tasks missing!
by Progolfore on 2020/02/19 19:45
Nothing is more frustrating than using an app that is a shell of itself. Especially when it comes to simple tasks. I had excel spreadsheets on my PC that I had generated and each one I created a logo and title in the header. These headers aren’t generally seen while using excel but are available to edit and use through a menu on a PC. Now I use an iPad Pro solely (PC died) and there is no menu or method to change headers on all of my excel files I have previously made. My spreadsheets are useless because I can’t change a header in their iOS app versions. And I am a Microsoft 365 user/payer. I called support and asked where I could give feedback on this to get someone to look at it and change it and they told me I only could go to a PC to give feedback on this. They didn’t have a method in a browser on an iPad! That’s crazy messed up! Microsoft, are you listening, why are these simple and necessary features not available?
Love Excel but having issues on IPad
by !BabyGirl89! on 2019/07/24 19:45
I am having issues with this application on my IPad. I can not use the application at all. Also, this application logs me out of Office 365 from time to time and I can’t access my files. Then when I try to log back on I have issues and it wont let me. This only happens on occasion. I am now logged in to Office 365. The real issue now is, I can not even use this application. When I first open the application it tries to open the last document I worked on. The issue is that it wont open it. It just keeps the pop up that says attempting to open and will not do anything. When I try to cancel it, it then pops up attempting to cancel and won’t. My application is no longer working on my IPad due to this. I’ve tried to turn the IPad off. Stop and start the application. I don’t know what to do.
Love me some Excel
by Scarlet in the Living Room on 2018/06/11 17:45
Okay so, I’m an MS Office girl from way back. From websites to databases, you name it, I loved every little bit Office could offer. But then I got an iPhone, and I found myself straying to other apps compatible with my newfound iPhone love. I tried Office for iPhone, but at that time, the two designs just didn’t work well together. But recently I’ve needed to work with Office and I gave the iOS version another go. All I can say is Hallelujah, y’all!!! Microsoft has worked out all the kinks, and my two tech-loves can coexist at last! Oh , and not for nothing, I recently got an iPad Pro 10.5 with an Apple Pencil, and OMG, y’all!! I’m in database-formatting-outline-creating Heaven!!! Give Office for iOS another try- you’ll be happy you did.
RMD Excel
by Doc D55 on 2018/02/04 22:22
I'm very happy now. The earlier version not so much, but now I'm very happy. I've been a Microsoft user for 30 years. I totally love Excel. I've used it for work, keep as checkbook, travel expenses, on and on. My title was Constructed Manager, of multi-million to billion dollar projects. I've got 4 college degrees. Love Excel. However anyone can make use of this program and love it. This current version is the very best to use on Apple ISO products and very easy to use. It's just a matter of experimenting and before you know it your an expert. Enjoy! 02Aug16 The improvement continue to make Excel better and better. I've been using Excel on my own Microsoft computer for many years and I continue to find more uses and simpler way of doing things. This App is continuing to evolve making everything simpler and more fun to use. I strongly suggest to try it if you haven't before. 04FEB17 This App has completely gone down hill. A very simple thing to do is format a column of numbers. Ex: Dates, Dollars. Well....if anyone figures out how please let me know without having to write a very time consuming formula. That is the only method I could fine. When this App first came out, one (1) Tap set the cell or the column format. Now? Forget it.
Not nearly as functional as it needs to be - Dropbox compatibility
by Andrea Bowen on 2019/10/01 15:50
I’ve been using this Excel for iPad/iOS app since about the time it came out. This is probably the case with all the Microsoft Office for iPad/iOS apps, but I’m experiencing this right now with Excel, so I’ll call it out here. Just about all my work is on Dropbox. Excel automatically tries to open the previous thing that I was working on. And if it gets hung up—Excel basically doesn’t open because it can’t figure out how to open a file that’s in my Dropbox. I’m down to the point that I’m just opening my old Excel files in Google Drive, because at least Google Drive lets me edit, and I can save my old stuff as an Excel file if Excel for iPad ever gets its act together. I’m finding the Dropbox functionality really dreadful, and am happy to talk to someone at Microsoft about it. I want to use Office products, but this weird situation is driving me bats.
It’s a great app except for one major annoying thing
by Fishnsoph on 2019/12/02 20:45
I use the app daily for work and in my personal life. I have one major gripe with it though. I’m not very tech savvy so please forgive my basic way of explaining. The top green bar/menu (while a sheet is open) with the arrow to go back to the list of books, the undo button, font, search and share is not constantly available. It’s there when you open the sheet. Then it’s hidden. Sometimes it comes back when you press the green arrow and other times it’s just gone, with no way to get it back. Unless I close the app completely and restart it. I really wish this section was more user friendly. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but I can’t seem to find another way to have it shown. Thanks for letting me vent.
Functional but one issue
by Great Lake Sailor on 2020/01/21 10:28
I am a professional mariner who uses this app to run spreadsheets that assist me in navigating and handling cargo. They essentially act as custom calculators with the convenience of my phone. Implementation of excel into the smartphone format is great. I build the spreadsheet on my computer and transfer it to my phone. I like the dedicated number keypad. I do not at all like how I am regularly unable to “edit” read, use, my spreadsheet without internet! It is saved to my phone, but the hokey subscription requirement of connecting to the internet or locking up my spreadsheets completely castrates this app’s usefulness. I cannot rely on it when I need it most, at sea out of the range of any internet services. You seriously need to fix this fault. Make me pay for it if you have to, but for goodness sake not everyone has reliable access to internet. You are killing those users’ loyalty to Microsoft. I go for months without internet access. If you have options for us and we just don’t know about it, please do better to advertise it. Great app. But useless because you regularly lock me out of it!
Can’t update on Unlimited ATT and Verizon plans
by BestAppsUser on 2018/08/13 20:22
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 sure that you are now aware I can let other users know all is well in a few days or so, therefore rating will go to a deserved location. As my 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
When able to open, very useful.
by 2doggs on 2019/09/13 00:15
This app is great if I can open it. At least twice a week I attempt to open the app and it freezes, giving me a message saying it is trying to open the document. I tapped the cancel option and nothing changes other than a different message saying it’s trying to cancel. I close the app and try again multiple times with no success. I end up having to delete the app, then reinstall it to get it working again. But without fail have to go through all of this again in the next couple of days. I’m not one to post negative reviews very often, but this has been going on for about a year now. I drive for my job and need to track my mileage. Excel is my preferred method.
Almost like the desktop version... almost
by concertmaster3 on 2019/06/29 09:32
The iPad version of Excel has a good foundation, but unfortunately it lacks features that you only see in the desktop version. For me personally, the most important feature that they left out of the iPad version is that you are not allowed to create “notes” (what they used to call “comments” in pre-2019 versions.) Yes that’s right, you can create notes for any cell in the 2019 Excel desktop version, but somehow this feature is unavailable in the iOS version. Microsoft, if you are reading this, please add the ability to write notes to individual cells in Excel for iOS! Even the Mac version of Excel has this ability! Come on Microsoft, please make your products more consistent across all platforms!
Simply intuitive without loss of functionality
by AggieGarrison87 on 2020/04/09 09:57
When excel was first released there was a last of comprehensive instruction, each command proving a dos CMD ascus direction on how to input the function. While lacking any description of the functions use(s) and the possible commands that could be coupled or integrated design a program or automate your projects to a higher degree of accuracy, providing ideas how to optimize and expedite your results. Excel has extremely extrapolated it’s capabilities, created an interface that’s user friendly, and with each iteration they’ve been gradually improving their product! Highly recommend!!!!
Enjoying this App
by DME_Ski on 2017/11/25 19:49
This App has been a consistently great experience for me to use. I haven’t yet come across the problems others have, however, I use it for basic things like inventories and logs, so I may not be using it to the extent others are. I also really appreciate reading the reviews that have complaints and see the developers’ responses to these important reviews. The developers are quick to make the fixes, almost every week it seems, and I think that makes not only for a great App but for wanting to stick with an App (and their company) because you’re getting awesome service. Thanks, again!!!
Great App but never buy it from Apple Store!!
by Negreirosvicente on 2020/03/25 17:30
Microsoft Office 365 Personal is a must for almost everyone at work. Unfortunately it did not work when purchased from Apple Store. The year subscription purchased did now work after a few months and Apple just said it could not do anything about it, since the issue needed to solved by the developer, ie, Microsoft. Microsoft was very nice to assist me, but could not recognize the purchases from Apple Store. I ended up losing the money used to purchase from Apple Store and purchasing a new subscription from Microsoft that worked fine. If both Apple and Microsoft, huge companies, can not process the purchases and exchange information, the end consumer is the one paying the price twice. Great customer service from Microsoft, poor service from Apple.
Need instructions to be helpful. Could use the app a lot more if I knew what I was doing.
by < 3 RJ on 2018/02/25 16:28
I would like to know which would be good to make a list of my bills in and follow through with the monthly changes on that. Then there’s things just add on their own or don’t add when I would like. There’s also the fact that some of us pay monthly a subscription for Microsoft office and they could at least be decent enough to send us a book on the apps. I’m not talking, wait stop what you’re doing, go out of the app and watch a video. I want a genuine piece of paper inside books or booklets that says, Word, Excel, One Note and instructions with each. I also don’t want one note to keep closing on me or to lose info that I typed. It’s too much to ask, I know, but do continue taking my money each month and sometimes twice a month, why? I don’t know why?
Too basic
by Rkost83 on 2020/01/27 22:02
I bought an iPad Pro thinking I could replace everything that I previously used a laptop for; however, this is the one app that doesn’t have enough functionality to meet that need. I use Excel for some pretty basic needs, but I’ve found some key features are missing. Two biggies I’ve found so far: I can’t manage drop-down lists (i.e. data validation lists) and I can’t sort by specified columns within a range. That means that I have to email myself the file to my work laptop (since I no longer use a personal laptop) in order to update a drop-down list or do some relatively simple sorting, and then email it back to myself so I continue using it on my iPad or iPhone. Please add a little more functionality, or I will not be renewing my Office 365 subscription.
Excel app
by Husky0103 on 2019/03/26 14:10
It&#39;d be good to be able to size rows and columns in this app from an iPhone, but being able to use it even to just edit a file is great! The first iPhone 8 I bought never quite did Microsoft Office apps the way it should have. That phone didn’t keep Excel open long enough to enter data tracking medications over an hour. Repeated log outs and sign ins were required. This iPhone 8 handles Excel much better. It stays logged in. Whether it’s due to MO improvements or iPhone 8’s changes isn’t clear, but they work together much better now. The first iPhone 8 had issues in other areas as well.
Great/needs work
by humpco on 2019/09/29 04:15
Hello, hope someone reads this and respond. Outstanding program that has fulfilled my greatest expectations when working as designed. For that, please don’t change a thing. Unfortunately there have been situations where a file refuses to open or close. It simply spin for as long as I allow resulting in my uninstalling and reinstalling the program. I know of no other to way to shut it down. Unfortunately in doing so I lost a very important file that I’ve been unsuccessful in recovering. I’ve been unsuccessful in getting help from anyone to recover the lost data 365 or anyone. HELP!!!!
Perfect for on the Fly
by Hungry for Chicken on 2018/12/05 17:44
Don’t get me wrong there are definitely limitations with it being on mobile, some limitations even that I don’t think would be too hard to implement over time. That said though for what excel on mobile does offer it is very worth it. Whether I’m making moderate changes to an existing workbook or creating a new one before finalizing it on windows 10 (usually because of the limitations on mobile), it is very user friendly and allows everything needed to create a basic workbook. It still has room for improvement which is my reason for only giving 4 stars but in the end it’s a very good mobile adaptation.
iPad to iPad Pro upgrades beware
by H8HUME on 2018/01/08 22:54
I’ve been using this app for quite some time with my hotmail account. Generally, the compatibility with excel’s more robust desktop and web app has been good but for quirks (keyboard is too large in non-landscape, etc). Minor stuff. I recently upgraded to a iPad Pro and was unpleasantly surprised that I have to get a 365 license to do what I did before on my regular iPad for free. $6.99 a month is NOT worth using this app. It took some time to figure out that was the problem considering I had a regular office version for Mac. I’d give it 1 stars for this but I think the functionality is generally great and better than Numbers. It’s just unfortunate that they don’t make that clear. At $2.99 a month, I might consider but that’s just way out of line for usage.
Excel Mobile version with connectivity to laptop
by Greatest Dad in the WORLD! on 2017/09/29 20:31
I have always liked excel. This version with cloud save is great. I can use on iPad and it looks and feels like laptop version. I have spreadsheets I need both places. I can create a bookmark on my windows explorer and then click a button to open on the laptop excel vs. using the web browser version which I don&#39;t like as much. Magic - genuine compatibility and cloud storage. Love that most functionality free since I paid for license on laptop. Well done by Microsoft to serve and retain customers. I had started to use numbers but have since stopped.
I lost hours of work
by trausner on 2020/02/01 18:38
I am using this app in connection with the files app on my iPad Pro newest generation. Multiple times now I had the same problem. I’m working on a spreadsheet for hours with auto save on. Then I close, the current file, go into the file picker of the app, choose the same file again and it’s all gone... everything. Just lost. The file is back to the original before I started editing. Nothing I can do. I check the same file on the Apple file app, also the original. It’s like closing the file lead to all the data loss. I read on forums online that the same thing is happening to other people. This is a KNOWEN BUG! and why is this app still available without a fix. How is this even allowed? Hours of work are gone. Who is gonna replace them? Is Microsoft going to pay me for my losses?
MS Office Apps Really Are Better
by jd0101010101 on 2019/12/13 13:20
I am an avid Apple fan, and try to use Apple gear and software wherever possible. I have tried to use the iWork suite and make it work for my needs, but Microsoft has been working on the Office suite for so long that it just works better, even on Apple gear. It’s just more compatible with what everybody else is using for document creation, and collaboration is intuitive and functional. Even Office for Mac is comparable to Office for Windows now. Sorry, Apple, I will continue to advocate for your gear (because it is better) but I will advocate for MS Office. * Except Keynote! Keynote is way better than Power Point
You killed my spreadsheet!
by cletusd on 2019/01/21 15:18
The new comment feature RUINED my previous notes. I used to be able to edit them at will. Now because they have all been converted to these “threaded comments”, for one they take forever to open up when you tap on them and I cant edit them. Ive had this particularly useful spreadsheet that Ive used for years and now its almost no good to me. I was on online with tech support for 2 hours trying to see if there was a way to reconvert them back to simple notes. It turns out I have to use the my laptop and redo the entire spreadsheet to re-add all my notes. I cant even find the “add note feature” on my iPad version. I am not happy at all with this comment thread feature!!
Microsoft Corporation is Retarded
by M:E/M)O(R\Y on 2020/04/30 22:14
I don’t care what this is, the app. All I care about is hating on Microsoft. Maybe they don’t make things, but when something is made, they infect it with Microsoft and then make it crappy and stupid. I once had Minecraft on my PC. Always have owned it, until I wanted to play it. Then it told me to buy it, AGAIN, for 30 more dollars. Then I redone loaded the new Modern Warfare, it originally costed 100$ or 60$ or something like that. To me, that’s a lot of money, same with 30$. I’m only - what? Thirteen. I got onto the new Modern Warfare after having to reinstall it 3 times because I thought it was glitched, then it said I could only play the stupid game mode - Warzone. So if you want to kill Microsoft with me before it makes you re-buy all of your games, then join me, we must eliminate and terminate Microsoft. For the better.
Entering formulas?
by QuantMike on 2019/10/19 23:03
Seems like a great idea to be able to open and edit your Excel files on your phone or iPad. I&#39;ve been using Excel for about a quarter century and never had that ability...how did I survive? Unfortunately, there is something squirrelly about the implementation...as far as I can tell, there is no way to actually enter formulas into a sheet. I can see formulas entered on the sheet when I built it on my desktop, but no way exists (as far as I can figure out) to enter the formula bar and type something. The store describes &#34;in-app purchases,&#34; so maybe you have to pay to get edit capability. In any event, view-only is still useful to me so two stars. Fix the implementation and make it possible to tap in the formula bar and type, and it becomes 4.5 or 5.
I pad version
by Fwretired on 2018/04/25 17:55
I have been using the Excel app on my I pad for a few years now and have a love hate relationship with it. Love the spread sheet capabilities, but sometimes I need the grid lines and cannot for the life of me get them to print. Tried everything that they recommend , but not luck. Sometimes, I make a spread sheet and can&#39;t print part of the sheet, especially if the address is in blue, so I have to go in and change it to black and even then, it sometimes doesn&#39;t work unless I e mail it to myself and then print. They should send some updates that actually work.
You have broken it utility in last version
by CableDOC on 2020/03/31 23:28
I have been using Excel for 15 years, and 5 years on iPhone and iPad. I add data copied from Word, Outlook or Apple Mail into spreadsheets on a daily basis. I have been using the paste button in the FX field or inside a cell. Now, I cannot find the Paste function in either place when I hold down my finger. Occasionally I can past over a whole cell when the blue corners appear, but probably only 1:5 times—and each attempt forces me to go back to the original document and copy data again. This is especially true when I am copying multi line addresses, as when the blue corner paste function works, I make 4-5 cells of data, instead of the single cell with multiple lines as before. PLEASE FIX THIS SOON so I don’t have to go back to Numbers my data editing.
Excel - great tool
by Brian McNamara on 2019/07/20 23:18
Great tool for just about every project. First used Excel at Rockwell on a 1984 Macintosh; Rockwell upgraded to Macintosh Plus the next year. If my memory is accurate both Mac’s had Excel and Word plus one or 2 other programs that are now part of MS Office. I was lucky to have a visionary VP at Rockwell (technically North American Rockwell) who ultimately eliminated the entire word processor department so, we, as technical writers, were able to create and produce our own modification manuals (Space Shuttle upgrades and modifications). Excel was my favorite because it was easy to integrate formulas, perform calculations and copy-paste results into Word; thereby producing our own document. IMB was running MS Dos and Windows was Microsoft’s competition against the easy to use drop and drag Macintosh Plus. But both computers used Excel. I still use Excel in my own business as do my employees. Early experience has made Excel all the more valuable - this remains true 35 years later. Brian Peter McNamara, CFP, MST

by camelotsrefugee on 2018/09/15 04:27
Having a pre setup to only have to plug info into is nice...however.. Not being able it to copy and save as another document after I’d made major changes without fore knowledge of this was extremely frustrating and caused an additional hour of work to recreate a doc in manag my money sample...additionally, I could not then get the pie chart to translate the newer data..it simply disappeared ...I used excel for years and had been absent it for approximately five years and so rusty in memory of summing and formulas..having a tutorial would be extremely beneficial..the more comfortable people are with your product, the more inclined they will be to purchase the full program since this is apparently only the carrot and not the actual program
Beautiful, but lacking function
by SounDavs on 2020/02/06 00:49
I am using Excel on iPad Pro 12.9. For certain basic features, which I would normally right-click then select “Format Cells” to access, there seems to be no equivalent functionality on the iPad version yet. For example, with a column of dates all in different formats, I can’t simply highlight all of them and change them to the same MM/DD/YYYY style at once. The same is true of currency formatting, etc. I also do not see any “paste link” functionality which would allow multiple Excel sheets to talk to one another and update my cells automatically as I input data. Styling borders without a “Format Cells”-like option is painstaking.
Need more different types of Agenda template
by Charlen_21 on 2019/10/18 16:38
There still some bugs needs to be fix such as codes charters in excel s are causes some speed issues for the OS 13 and more on the IPhone and IPAD. .We also need more agendas template with vibrant new colors, update types of Agenda with cells with date, attendee, the main topic, subtopics and minutes matching the agenda that one share in Office Note . Office Note needs a whole lot up dates . I wish I could work fo Microsoft in the Office 365 departments, I would move the company more in the 21 century and also the company stocks would jump up 75%more
Problems since last update
by dansram on 2018/04/05 22:44
I use this app everyday. When you use the app, you can pin your regularly used worksheets to the top of your recent list. However, since the last update, after you make changes to your worksheet and save/close the worksheet, it is no longer pinned to the top and you’ll have to find it again and re-pin it. If you are changing between multiple worksheets that can (and is) quite tedious (and annoying). I’m not sure if this happens in other Microsoft for iOS apps, I haven’t tried. The only support you get is via the paid route or hopefully through their message boards (good luck). Otherwise it’s a good app.
Bugs and design flaw frustration
by Postmister on 2018/02/11 18:44
I love Excel! Love it! THIS, is bordering on unusable. More frustrating than anything because of the amount of bugs in this version. Half the screen disappears, for no reason, once every minutes and a half. The formula suggestions are defaulted to “insert” so when you type a formula the suggestions disappear. If it was just those things alone, 3-stars. BUT the design flaw is inexcusable. The pen functionality...... is garbage. Whoever, Engineer/Designer/Project Manger, decided that the pen is only useful for drawing, IN EXCEL!?!?, should be flogged! I get the ability to draw with a pen, sure, makes sense, but AUTO DEFAULTS to “draw”, the moment the pen touches the screen, with an inability to turn it off, is nothing short of incompetence. Very unhappy.
Solid B-
by Darkness0276 on 2017/10/31 15:09
I use the app consistently for accounting class but it crashes every five minutes. It takes a minute to reopen every time so I get behind. That being said, it does work well to generate formulas—though if you don’t already know excel, you may have problems. That’s the main reason I use it instead of doing manual math and handwriting all of my notes - the formulas error-proof the math. Needs a feature to increase or decrease indentations within a cell. Sometimes it will do it on its own, which makes everything inconsistent.
Loved this app - before the update.
by @mb3rl!7 on 2019/09/22 18:02
My Excel app has stopped functioning at least 12 times in the last week. I use it multiple times a day, and after about 3 uses it now will not open at all until I delete and reinstall the app from my phone. The bug fixes from the last update have completely backfired. This would be a 5 star app for me if the last update did not completely obliterate meaningful functionality. Happy to re-review in the event they expedite and push through another update, but the significantly decreased usability has left me irritated, especially considering I pay for a subscription and for the extent to which I use the app in my day to day. I hoped updating my iOS software would alleviate the problem, but that is not the case.
Time Sheets for Entertainment Labor.
by SkyHunter_LAW on 2017/11/18 18:14
This app is great. All the features work just like the full featured computer version. It allows for our leads in the field, to fill in the time sheets via their phones. For example outdoor events don’t always have a production office or for the first day or two hasn’t been established. Being able to do the work on your phone makes for a easy day. Imagine trying to set up a computer on a road case then tether to the Internet just to fill out time sheets n save to company Dropbox ?!!! This app is a win win.
Good but not good enough to do serious work
by Wise Young on 2017/10/08 08:11
Even with a keyboard, entering data is a pain. To fill, for example, you have to first click the first cell so that the menu shows and then select it. Then, you have to use your finger to drag the box to encompass the cells that you want to fill. To enter data into the cell, you have to click the FX window. The on screen keyboard is puts an undo button as part of the space bar. I can’t count the number of times that I have pressed the undo side of the space bar and undid all my work of the previous 5 minutes.
Stuck in “Downloading”
by Chalkos on 2019/09/18 13:34
I never ever ever write reviews for any apps because it’s a waste of my valuable time, but this one is the kicker. I have all my finances and activities for the year in spreadsheets and very often I find mysef in the need of having to uninstall and re-install the app because it would get stuck in “Downloading” and when I hit cancel, it would remain stuck in “Attempting to cancel”. The app in general is great, but how would you rate an app that you can’t even open? (Let alone the fact I pay Office 360 yearly).

Battery killer
by H-Town 1980 on 2020/06/03 07:21
I used to use Excel on my phone at work for log taking for several hours per day and never charge my phone at work. Recently 20 minutes of usage will take me down about 4% a minute. I switched phones (newer phone) and it still uses FAR too much battery and both phones get warm.

Poor features
by Sergiop68 on 2020/05/28 15:11
The iPad today has the same functions like a notebook/laptop, so why are the Excel features like a phone. Microsoft must improve this, because with the keyboard, 13” screen, and hardware better than a netbook, the features should be all!!!

by C Dew on 2020/05/25 01:02
On my iPhone, I created a spreadsheet and saved it. Even though my iPad shows that I am successfully logged in, not one of my Office documents is available! Some BS about a server not being available, which is ironic given that I am able to access the spreadsheet on my iPhone even after getting the BS message about it being unavailable. Correction: It’s not ironic, it’s moronic!

You can’t do very much with this app. You can’t have multiple windows open using split screen, can’t move doc to flash drive without going to the website, crashes frequently, can’t move multiple files into a folder. Only good if you kinda need excel. If you’re trying to use this on your iPad for work, forget it. Wasn’t worth the free trial

Almost as functional as the computer version
by Romanthefourth on 2020/05/14 05:53
I used to teach excel in computer science at the University of New Mexico. I had a hard time believing a phone app could be as powerful as the excel program on computers. You’d be surprised how much you can do from a phone app. It has formulas, charts, tables, and can even suggest numerical data such as averages when you select groups of data. It has a scanner where you can take a picture of a chart and it imports the data to a chart. Great product.

It doesn’t sync to OneDrive
by yongkoh on 2020/05/12 18:05
I was very excited that I could continue my work from PC to my iPad Pro away from my desk. The functions were pretty much comparable and I don’t see any missing functions for what I need. Until...it doesn’t sync back to OneDrive. I spent a few hours trying to figure out, the PC version didn’t have my changes on iPad and my iPad still have the new changes but didn’t upload to Onedrive. I tried to save it several times and I should have Save a Copy but I didn’t. Finally, I tried to open the Onedrive version on my ipad and I lost all my work on IPad. This is very disappointing and I don’t think I will use this app again.

No mouse support and missing basic functionality
by 01... on 2020/05/11 15:09
Since its introduction, the mouse has worked seamlessly with nearly all apps on my iPad Pro. The stark exception is Excel. iPad Pro with keyboard, mouse, and pen is a powerful work platform. It is a shame Microsoft’s Excel doesn’t work with a mouse and is missing basic functionality. Will be dropping Office subscription.
Great App, but.....
by DRBM on 2020/05/11 13:13
This app is great and is very easy to use. As a 365 subscriber, i have the ability to use the full version, and it works very well, except for one thing. It needs split screen support for the iPad. If it had that, it would be worthy of five stars. Since Word and PowerPoint have that feature, I can’t see why this can’t be added for Excel. I will stay tuned.......

Every time I think MS is finally “getting it”, I run into some bone-headed limitation like this one. Give me a break! There doesn’t seem to be any way to take an Excel file and, on the iPad, save it as CSV. I should have known by the way desktop Excel has always used a janky method for saving as CSV, complete with ridiculous “warnings”, and “can’t be saved in this format!” nonsense. And every new version of Excel, they decide to spend time making the warnings even more janky. Wow.

NOT FOR STEM MAJORS
by An Aggrevated Student on 2020/05/01 05:37
Using this tablet that’s suppose to be a “laptop replacer” (aka the iPad Pro), it’s ridiculous that the Microsoft Office apps are still limited to mobile use, instead of having a “desktop” mode since this is “more than a tablet”. I can’t use all the features as a I would be able to on a laptop. As a STEM major, this complicates everything. This app needs to be updated to have all those missing features so that all us dweebs who thought the iPad Pro would actually run like (or better) than a Surface Pro could finish school without theses dumb limitations.

Microsoft Corporation is Retarded
by M:E/M)O(R\Y on 2020/04/30 22:14
I don’t care what this is, the app. All I care about is hating on Microsoft. Maybe they don’t make things, but when something is made, they infect it with Microsoft and then make it crappy and stupid. I once had Minecraft on my PC. Always have owned it, until I wanted to play it. Then it told me to buy it, AGAIN, for 30 more dollars. Then I redone loaded the new Modern Warfare, it originally costed 100$ or 60$ or something like that. To me, that’s a lot of money, same with 30$. I’m only - what? Thirteen. I got onto the new Modern Warfare after having to reinstall it 3 times because I thought it was glitched, then it said I could only play the stupid game mode - Warzone. So if you want to kill Microsoft with me before it makes you re-buy all of your games, then join me, we must eliminate and terminate Microsoft. For the better.

It’s almost been a year since iPadOS and Microsoft still does not have the option to have more then one window open at once in Excel. I don’t know one person who uses Excel for business that operates on one workbook at a time. Very disappointing and makes the app nearly pointless...

First became accustomed to the many facilities involved in the work with excel 10 years ago and became excited with with the opportunity-that presented themselves. Thank you.
OK, But Needs Some Work
by mjriley on 2020/04/27 20:32
The Excel for iPad app is a solid app, but is missing some things that would make it a much better experience for more power users. The ability to open multiple Excel apps at once. Would be great to have two spreadsheets open at once. Secondly, and I hope this is coming soon is support for trackpads and mice (including Apple’s Magic Keyboard). This would allow users to better work within spreadsheets.
It works well.
by Dillydally213 on 2020/04/27 16:42
I gave it 5 stars but feel compelled to add that I like working with an actual keyboard and mouse; so I don’t use this app to create spreadsheets or to make large-scale revisions.
Using an IPad
by Rebelzombie422 on 2020/04/27 15:50
I’m currently using the IPad Pro and this device is such a beast and so powerful. We should be aloud to have access to the full Microsoft Office experience. If I’m going to be paying full price for the membership then I should have full access. Plot lines, scatter point’s, AND most importantly, Macros / developer tab. ESPECIALLY the developer tab.
Paste issues
by LEUTT on 2020/04/27 06:27
It won’t let me paste a small selection over a large set of cells. Also, paste special does not work at all!
Wast of money

Spend all your time singing in and still don’t let me edit file can’t save anything worse app ever
Horrible
by kenna_167 on 2020/04/27 01:44
I hate this excel and word and I would never use them but I have to because my professors prefer it. This applications can never save to my laptop and no matter how many different ways I try. It crashed and deleted all my lab data when it was on auto save. When I’m done with these professors I will never use it again I’ll stick with google.

Lacking Functionality

Microsoft needs to take advantage of the addition of trackpad support for iPadOS and implement standardized keyboard shortcuts.
Typical buggy Microsoft product
by Uta Buuta Solo? on 2020/04/25 17:32
I am now re-installing this app for the 3rd time in as many weeks because it gets stuck on the load screen (Excel logo). Does Microsoft even have a QA dept anymore? I sincerely doubt it. Anyway, it used to let me edit Excel docs in my DropBox but now because of the load freeze and reinstalls this app has become a typical Microsoft buggy mess that I don’t even bother using anymore. And they want people to pay for an Office 365 personal account? ROLMAO.
Buggy
by Customer1478 on 2020/04/25 05:11
On Mac OS: Program locked up repeatedly when I tried to copy and paste a small amount of text. Not behavior I’d expect from a spreadsheet program I pay $120 a year for in the year 2020.

Works great, until it doesn’t
by aaguilar0925 on 2020/04/22 17:16
I have been using this app for a couple months, it’s not as smooth as it is on a Windows PC but its nice to have it on my iPad. Most of the functions worked. But yesterday, I could no longer paste values alone! I have to manually type in about 100 cells because I’m working from home. Microsoft, please help!
Excel program
by MotivatorChris on 2020/04/22 06:53
This place is a great way to set life’s lessons and goals for me. It’s a great app for a learning experience and the use of it is a greater toolset in doing what I can to be organized and then make my day brighter with excel programs!

Not for Engineering
by That Maurer Kid on 2018/08/31 04:53
I use my iPad Pro for everything college. Literally everything. I type papers on the Microsoft Word app, make Power Points on Microsoft’s PowerPoint app, take notes, do online assignments, play games, listen to music, watch school related videos WHILE taking notes, etc etc. I do know that some features are left out on Microsoft apps since I’m using an Apple product and they DO NOT go unnoticed. Such features I have been able to go without and many people probably don’t use them often. When it comes to Microsoft’s Excel app, too many features are left out and the app is almost rendered useless for engineering work. I need to be able to manipulate line graphs, scatter plots, and data and this app doesn’t allow me to do so. If I have 2 columns of data, I need to plot one versus the other, and this app doesn’t allow me to do so. Then once I do that, I need to be able to see all the data that comes with the graph that is generated, like the r^2 value and setting tolerances for trend lines etc. Maybe it was a far fetched idea in the first place to think I could use an iPad for all my college engineering work, but its frustrating when I can do literally everything else on my iPad faster, easier, and more convenient than with a laptop, EXCEPT for Microsoft Excel. Literally the only drawback I have with my iPad. I get Office 365 through college so I’m still paying Microsoft for ALL of its features, but not getting them. Disappointing.
Why do I suddenly need a Office 360 subscription??
by Ya, right. on 2019/01/12 19:44
I like being able to access my excel files from my iPhone. Works great for simple editing and updating. But suddenly I can not edit an excel file that I had created on my laptop and had been able to edit it on my iPhone before. It opens read only and when I try to save it to another name or location it does not allow it because I now must have an Office 360 subscription. I never had one to begin with. I have a one drive account, but that does not get me around this. WHY do I suddenly need an Office 360 subscription? It’s MY file; I created it OUTSIDE of this iPhone app. WHY are you holding me hostage? I can’t find an explanation for why this happened and why I now need the subscription. Google Sheets seems to work just fine and I am now using that instead. Are other Office apps going to do the same thing to me? Incidentally, if you get stuck by this, I finally got around not being able to write the file anywhere by mailing the file to myself from inside the app and then I opened it with Google Sheets.
Seriously slow on the latest iPad Pro
by UNLV rebel! on 2019/05/01 10:39
I am using an iPad Pro 256GB Wifi + Cellular version and I am extremely disappointed on the speed and features of the app. Not sure if the app or iPad Pro is to blame but the vlookup, match functions are just not working as gracefully as it should be. Each time I input a number, it would take 5 seconds to return the correct values and it is just not acceptable on an advanced device like the iPad Pro. I have to admit that my spreadsheet has over 50,000 of rows, 30+ columns and 10+ spreadsheets but there are no macros and images used at all. And for anyone who relies on Excel to process this huge amount of data, this is just a very common scale of a spreadsheet, not to mention it is only 10MB. Either Apple or Mircosoft seriously needs to look into resolving this issue or there’s just no point of having this powerful application on the iPad.
iPad Pro 10.5 to iPad Pro 12.9 told 365 only $.99/mo WRONG!
by mjd2049 on 2019/01/19 18:01
My 10.5 Pro which I’ve been using for years was lost. I was deciding between the 10.5 &amp; the 12.9 Pro. I told Apple Sales person that I mainly work in excel on a daily basis. I was told that I might find the 12.9” a Big improvement. I would have to purchase 365 to be able to update my spreadsheets but that it only costs $ .99 per month. I didn’t like the change that the upgrade would cause but purchased a 12.9 for over $100. Once at home I find that the 365 app cost 6.99/month or $84/yr. I should not have trusted the Apple sales agent and checked before purchase but dang, why should I have to. I certainly can afford the $84 but it’s the principal. I can afford it but I hate greed! I’m taking back the 12.9” and purchasing the 10.5” Pro which I was doing just fine with. Sometimes it’s the little things that count.
Good when it’s working
by Sundlie on 2018/01/26 15:48
I love being able to use Excel on my iPad Pro as it’s super easy to make adjustments on the go. I’ve got Office 365 and my documents are stored on OneDrive so I’m usually able to make changes and it shows up on my other devices. However at least once a week the app seems to forget my password and all my documents stop syncing. I have to sign in again and then it overwrites any changes I’ve made on my iPad since it decided to stop syncing. OneDrive has been doing weird stuff like this on all my laptops, desktops and tablets over the past few years. In fact the last time OneDrive seemed to be problem free was back when it was called SkyDrive. Hopefully Microsoft gets things figured out eventually. If not I’ll probably just switch over to Google Docs when my 365 subscription ends.
Don’t use this if you need it to work...
by Wrlitzr on 2019/12/19 18:33
I use excel to track my business miles on my iPad while I’m out in the field, and it seems like at least 3-5 times a week I have to completely uninstall and reinstall the app because it stops being able to open any files. It just says something went wrong and the file can’t be opened. I’m able to open the file on my phone and computer, it’s just this version of the app that has this problem. The first few times it happened I tried resetting the device and clearing any app cache I could get access to, but the only thing that would fix it was completely reinstalling. This is not a small app to be downloading several times per week over cellular... If it weren’t the only app capable of handling the specific formulas included in this spreadsheet I would definitely be using Google Sheets or Open Office instead... If you need a general use spreadsheet app I highly recommend looking at one of those instead to avoid this persistent pain in the neck...
Some of the iOS limitations are puzzling
by e-book lover on 2019/01/06 03:54
Overall, I’m very happy to have the convenience of using Excel on my iPad. I’m not a very sophisticated user, so the stripped down version is mostly workable for me. That said, some functions don’t seem to be present at all, and it’s puzzling why they aren’t included in the iOS version. I keep getting a ‘circular reference’ error in one spreadsheet, for instance, and can find no way to locate it using the iOS app. I finally went to my PC to resolve the error. Since all of Microsoft’s dubious ‘help’ seems to refer to the PC version, looking up ‘how to’ information can be an exercise in frustration. If there’s a chart that tells you which functions aren’t included in the app., it should be prominently displayed so as to avoid the many wasted minutes looking for something that just isn’t there.
You will lose your work!!! Don’t buy
by ABelieber on 2017/11/26 04:51
Bought the subscription to Office 365 because I wanted to use Microsoft Excel. First 2 projects I worked on went fine. My 3rd project was a huge one (a $800 fee for me). I worked on it for 6 hours when suddenly my work vanished ... disappeared right in front my eyes! I tried everything, but I could not get the document back. Came to the realization that while the “auto-save” feature was “on”, the app was not saving any of the work!! The Microsoft cloud had nothing! Made a quick research and found that this type of complaint has been posted by others going back to 2014!!! What??? IT HAS NOT BEEN FIXED??!! Clients have had the same 2 bad experiences (failure by the auto-save and the document disappearing) AND MICROSOFT HAS NOT ADDRESSED THIS ISSUE. So, despite buying the iPad Pro intending to use Excel, I now will have to buy a Window base laptop. Grrrrrrrrrr.
Love Excel, despise recent changes
by Batgirl0520 on 2017/10/11 20:10
At one time I would have given 5 stars as Excel is one of my favorite programs. But some recent changes have made this app almost unusable for me. I&#39;d rather turn on my computer and wait to use that Excel instead of the app. If I try to scroll up and down with the key pad open, it usually closes the keypad on me. Opening it again every time is a pain. When I enter a number in a column and hit return, the keypad automatically reverts back to the text keys instead of the numbers. If you are entering numbers in a column, chances are you will want to keep entering numbers. Having it go back to text every time is obnoxious and totally a waste of time! If I select a cell with my finger, it is basically impossible to then select an adjacent cell. I need to tap one away from the one I actually need first and then go back.
So far, so good
by Urahmus on 2020/02/27 19:12
I consider myself an advanced Excel user and was skeptical of the limitations that would be imposed by the iPad version, but I have been pleasantly surprised so far. I have just started using the iPad version but have not yet encountered any major limitations for the activities I use 90% of the time. The cell borders options are not as complete as in the PC version, but that’s a cosmetic thing I can live with. The program integrates fantastically with the cloud, and all updates are immediately available on other devices. Very convenient to use the iPad for quick additions to a sheet, without having to go to my desktop computer, boot it up, do my work, and copy it to a thumb drive or email it to myself. This is easy to get used to...
Please FIX the apple pencil support
by RMKang on 2019/04/09 18:45
It’s great, not having to carry around my macbook pro and use excel for work on the iPad. I’ve gotten used to and actually prefer to use Excel on iPad for a quick project. However, after the update for Apple Pencil 2, program does not respond upon opening sheets, switching tabs, etc when you are using the apple pencil unless you tap on the Draw tab, and tap again on Home tab. It wasn’t doing that before the update. This does not make for smooth, quick work process, having to switch back and forth. I talked to the Tech Support about this, and was told that basically it is what it is now and that I’d have to wait for MS to fix this issue. Sooner than later would be great. Also, if there is a way that allows multiple sheets open at the same time, that’d be wonderful, but one can only dream.
Simple necessary tasks missing!
by Progolfore on 2020/02/19 19:45
Nothing is more frustrating than using an app that is a shell of itself. Especially when it comes to simple tasks. I had excel spreadsheets on my PC that I had generated and each one I created a logo and title in the header. These headers aren’t generally seen while using excel but are available to edit and use through a menu on a PC. Now I use an iPad Pro solely (PC died) and there is no menu or method to change headers on all of my excel files I have previously made. My spreadsheets are useless because I can’t change a header in their iOS app versions. And I am a Microsoft 365 user/payer. I called support and asked where I could give feedback on this to get someone to look at it and change it and they told me I only could go to a PC to give feedback on this. They didn’t have a method in a browser on an iPad! That’s crazy messed up! Microsoft, are you listening, why are these simple and necessary features not available?
Love Excel but having issues on IPad
by !BabyGirl89! on 2019/07/24 19:45
I am having issues with this application on my IPad. I can not use the application at all. Also, this application logs me out of Office 365 from time to time and I can’t access my files. Then when I try to log back on I have issues and it wont let me. This only happens on occasion. I am now logged in to Office 365. The real issue now is, I can not even use this application. When I first open the application it tries to open the last document I worked on. The issue is that it wont open it. It just keeps the pop up that says attempting to open and will not do anything. When I try to cancel it, it then pops up attempting to cancel and won’t. My application is no longer working on my IPad due to this. I’ve tried to turn the IPad off. Stop and start the application. I don’t know what to do.
Love me some Excel
by Scarlet in the Living Room on 2018/06/11 17:45
Okay so, I’m an MS Office girl from way back. From websites to databases, you name it, I loved every little bit Office could offer. But then I got an iPhone, and I found myself straying to other apps compatible with my newfound iPhone love. I tried Office for iPhone, but at that time, the two designs just didn’t work well together. But recently I’ve needed to work with Office and I gave the iOS version another go. All I can say is Hallelujah, y’all!!! Microsoft has worked out all the kinks, and my two tech-loves can coexist at last! Oh , and not for nothing, I recently got an iPad Pro 10.5 with an Apple Pencil, and OMG, y’all!! I’m in database-formatting-outline-creating Heaven!!! Give Office for iOS another try- you’ll be happy you did.
RMD Excel
by Doc D55 on 2018/02/04 22:22
I&#39;m very happy now. The earlier version not so much, but now I&#39;m very happy. I&#39;ve been a Microsoft user for 30 years. I totally love Excel. I&#39;ve used it for work, keep as checkbook, travel expenses, on and on. My title was Constructed Manager, of multi-million to billion dollar projects. I&#39;ve got 4 college degrees. Love Excel. However anyone can make use of this program and love it. This current version is the very best to use on Apple ISO products and very easy to use. It&#39;s just a matter of experimenting and before you know it your an expert. Enjoy! 02Aug16 The improvement continue to make Excel better and better. I&#39;ve been using Excel on my own Microsoft computer for many years and I continue to find more uses and simpler way of doing things. This App is continuing to evolve making everything simpler and more fun to use. I strongly suggest to try it if you haven&#39;t before. 04FEB17 This App has completely gone down hill. A very simple thing to do is format a column of numbers. Ex: Dates, Dollars. Well....if anyone figures out how please let me know without having to write a very time consuming formula. That is the only method I could fine. When this App first came out, one (1) Tap set the cell or the column format. Now? Forget it.
Not nearly as functional as it needs to be - Dropbox compatibility
by Andrea Bowen on 2019/10/01 15:50
I’ve been using this Excel for iPad/iOS app since about the time it came out. This is probably the case with all the Microsoft Office for iPad/iOS apps, but I’m experiencing this right now with Excel, so I’ll call it out here. Just about all my work is on Dropbox. Excel automatically tries to open the previous thing that I was working on. And if it gets hung up—Excel basically doesn’t open because it can’t figure out how to open a file that’s in my Dropbox. I’m down to the point that I’m just opening my old Excel files in Google Drive, because at least Google Drive lets me edit, and I can save my old stuff as an Excel file if Excel for iPad ever gets its act together. I’m finding the Dropbox functionality really dreadful, and am happy to talk to someone at Microsoft about it. I want to use Office products, but this weird situation is driving me bats.
It’s a great app except for one major annoying thing
by Fishnsoph on 2019/12/02 20:45
I use the app daily for work and in my personal life. I have one major gripe with it though. I’m not very tech savvy so please forgive my basic way of explaining. The top green bar/menu (while a sheet is open) with the arrow to go back to the list of books, the undo button, font, search and share is not constantly available. It’s there when you open the sheet. Then it’s hidden. Sometimes it comes back when you press the green arrow and other times it’s just gone, with no way to get it back. Unless I close the app completely and restart it. I really wish this section was more user friendly. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but I can’t seem to find another way to have it shown. Thanks for letting me vent.
Functional but one issue
by Great Lake Sailor on 2020/01/21 10:28
I am a professional mariner who uses this app to run spreadsheets that assist me in navigating and handling cargo. They essentially act as custom calculators with the convenience of my phone. Implementation of excel into the smartphone format is great. I build the spreadsheet on my computer and transfer it to my phone. I like the dedicated number keypad. I do not at all like how I am regularly unable to “edit” read, use, my spreadsheet without internet! It is saved to my phone, but the hokey subscription requirement of connecting to the internet or locking up my spreadsheets completely castrates this app’s usefulness. I cannot rely on it when I need it most, at sea out of the range of any internet services. You seriously need to fix this fault. Make me pay for it if you have to, but for goodness sake not everyone has reliable access to internet. You are killing those users’ loyalty to Microsoft. I go for months without internet access. If you have options for us and we just don’t know about it, please do better to advertise it. Great app. But useless because you regularly lock me out of it!
Can’t update on Unlimited ATT and Verizon plans
by BestAppsUser on 2018/08/13 20:22
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 sure that you are now aware I can let other users know all is well in a few days or so, therefore rating will go to a deserved location. As my 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
When able to open, very useful.
by 2doggs on 2019/09/13 00:15
This app is great if I can open it. At least twice a week I attempt to open the app and it freezes, giving me a message saying it is trying to open the document. I tapped the cancel option and nothing changes other than a different message saying it’s trying to cancel. I close the app and try again multiple times with no success. I end up having to delete the app, then reinstall it to get it working again. But without fail have to go through all of this again in the next couple of days. I’m not one to post negative reviews very often, but this has been going on for about a year now. I drive for my job and need to track my mileage. Excel is my preferred method.
Almost like the desktop version... almost
by concertmaster3 on 2019/06/29 09:32
The iPad version of Excel has a good foundation, but unfortunately it lacks features that you only see in the desktop version. For me personally, the most important feature that they left out of the iPad version is that you are not allowed to create “notes” (what they used to call “comments” in pre-2019 versions.) Yes that’s right, you can create notes for any cell in the 2019 Excel desktop version, but somehow this feature is unavailable in the iOS version. Microsoft, if you are reading this, please add the ability to write notes to individual cells in Excel for iOS! Even the Mac version of Excel has this ability! Come on Microsoft, please make your products more consistent across all platforms!
Simply intuitive without loss of functionality
by AggieGarrison87 on 2020/04/09 09:57
When excel was first released there was a last of comprehensive instruction, each command proving a dos CMD ascus direction on how to input the function. While lacking any description of the functions use(s) and the possible commands that could be coupled or integrated design a program or automate your projects to a higher degree of accuracy, providing ideas how to optimize and expedite your results. Excel has extremely extrapolated it’s capabilities, created an interface that’s user friendly, and with each iteration they’ve been gradually improving their product! Highly recommend!!!!
Enjoying this App
by DME_Ski on 2017/11/25 19:49
This App has been a consistently great experience for me to use. I haven’t yet come across the problems others have, however, I use it for basic things like inventories and logs, so I may not be using it to the extent others are. I also really appreciate reading the reviews that have complaints and see the developers’ responses to these important reviews. The developers are quick to make the fixes, almost every week it seems, and I think that makes not only for a great App but for wanting to stick with an App (and their company) because you’re getting awesome service. Thanks, again!!!
Great App but never buy it from Apple Store!!
by Negreirosvicente on 2020/03/25 17:30
Microsoft Office 365 Personal is a must for almost everyone at work. Unfortunately it did not work when purchased from Apple Store. The year subscription purchased did now work after a few months and Apple just said it could not do anything about it, since the issue needed to solved by the developer, ie, Microsoft. Microsoft was very nice to assist me, but could not recognize the purchases from Apple Store. I ended up losing the money used to purchase from Apple Store and purchasing a new subscription from Microsoft that worked fine. If both Apple and Microsoft, huge companies, can not process the purchases and exchange information, the end consumer is the one paying the price twice. Great customer service from Microsoft, poor service from Apple.
Need instructions to be helpful. Could use the app a lot more if I knew what I was doing.
by < 3 RJ on 2018/02/25 16:28
I would like to know which would be good to make a list of my bills in and follow through with the monthly changes on that. Then there’s things just add on their own or don’t add when I would like. There’s also the fact that some of us pay monthly a subscription for Microsoft office and they could at least be decent enough to send us a book on the apps. I’m not talking, wait stop what you’re doing, go out of the app and watch a video. I want a genuine piece of paper inside books or booklets that says, Word, Excel, One Note and instructions with each. I also don’t want one note to keep closing on me or to lose info that I typed. It’s too much to ask, I know, but do continue taking my money each month and sometimes twice a month, why? I don’t know why?
Too basic
by Rkost83 on 2020/01/27 22:02
I bought an iPad Pro thinking I could replace everything that I previously used a laptop for; however, this is the one app that doesn’t have enough functionality to meet that need. I use Excel for some pretty basic needs, but I’ve found some key features are missing. Two biggies I’ve found so far: I can’t manage drop-down lists (i.e. data validation lists) and I can’t sort by specified columns within a range. That means that I have to email myself the file to my work laptop (since I no longer use a personal laptop) in order to update a drop-down list or do some relatively simple sorting, and then email it back to myself so I continue using it on my iPad or iPhone. Please add a little more functionality, or I will not be renewing my Office 365 subscription.
Excel app
by Husky0103 on 2019/03/26 14:10
It&#39;d be good to be able to size rows and columns in this app from an iPhone, but being able to use it even to just edit a file is great! The first iPhone 8 I bought never quite did Microsoft Office apps the way it should have. That phone didn’t keep Excel open long enough to enter data tracking medications over an hour. Repeated log outs and sign ins were required. This iPhone 8 handles Excel much better. It stays logged in. Whether it’s due to MO improvements or iPhone 8’s changes isn’t clear, but they work together much better now. The first iPhone 8 had issues in other areas as well.
Great/needs work
by humpco on 2019/09/29 04:15
Hello, hope someone reads this and respond. Outstanding program that has fulfilled my greatest expectations when working as designed. For that, please don’t change a thing. Unfortunately there have been situations where a file refuses to open or close. It simply spin for as long as I allow resulting in my uninstalling and reinstalling the program. I know of no other to way to shut it down. Unfortunately in doing so I lost a very important file that I’ve been unsuccessful in recovering. I’ve been unsuccessful in getting help from anyone to recover the lost data 365 or anyone. HELP!!!!
Perfect for on the Fly
by Hungry for Chicken on 2018/12/05 17:44
Don’t get me wrong there are definitely limitations with it being on mobile, some limitations even that I don’t think would be too hard to implement over time. That said though for what excel on mobile does offer it is very worth it. Whether I’m making moderate changes to an existing workbook or creating a new one before finalizing it on windows 10 (usually because of the limitations on mobile), it is very user friendly and allows everything needed to create a basic workbook. It still has room for improvement which is my reason for only giving 4 stars but in the end it’s a very good mobile adaptation.
iPad to iPad Pro upgrades beware
by H8HUME on 2018/01/08 22:54
I’ve been using this app for quite some time with my hotmail account. Generally, the compatibility with excel’s more robust desktop and web app has been good but for quirks (keyboard is too large in non-landscape, etc). Minor stuff. I recently upgraded to a iPad Pro and was unpleasantly surprised that I have to get a 365 license to do what I did before on my regular iPad for free. $6.99 a month is NOT worth using this app. It took some time to figure out that was the problem considering I had a regular office version for Mac. I’d give it 1 stars for this but I think the functionality is generally great and better than Numbers. It’s just unfortunate that they don’t make that clear. At $2.99 a month, I might consider but that’s just way out of line for usage.
Excel Mobile version with connectivity to laptop
by Greatest Dad in the WORLD! on 2017/09/29 20:31
I have always liked excel. This version with cloud save is great. I can use on iPad and it looks and feels like laptop version. I have spreadsheets I need both places. I can create a bookmark on my windows explorer and then click a button to open on the laptop excel vs. using the web browser version which I don&#39;t like as much. Magic - genuine compatibility and cloud storage. Love that most functionality free since I paid for license on laptop. Well done by Microsoft to serve and retain customers. I had started to use numbers but have since stopped.
I lost hours of work
by trausner on 2020/02/01 18:38
I am using this app in connection with the files app on my iPad Pro newest generation. Multiple times now I had the same problem. I’m working on a spreadsheet for hours with auto save on. Then I close, the current file, go into the file picker of the app, choose the same file again and it’s all gone... everything. Just lost. The file is back to the original before I started editing. Nothing I can do. I check the same file on the Apple file app, also the original. It’s like closing the file lead to all the data loss. I read on forums online that the same thing is happening to other people. This is a KNOWEN BUG! and why is this app still available without a fix. How is this even allowed? Hours of work are gone. Who is gonna replace them? Is Microsoft going to pay me for my losses?
MS Office Apps Really Are Better
by jd0101010101 on 2019/12/13 13:20
I am an avid Apple fan, and try to use Apple gear and software wherever possible. I have tried to use the iWork suite and make it work for my needs, but Microsoft has been working on the Office suite for so long that it just works better, even on Apple gear. It’s just more compatible with what everybody else is using for document creation, and collaboration is intuitive and functional. Even Office for Mac is comparable to Office for Windows now. Sorry, Apple, I will continue to advocate for your gear (because it is better) but I will advocate for MS Office. * Except Keynote! Keynote is way better than Power Point
You killed my spreadsheet!
by cletusd on 2019/01/21 15:18
The new comment feature RUINED my previous notes. I used to be able to edit them at will. Now because they have all been converted to these “threaded comments”, for one they take forever to open up when you tap on them and I cant edit them. Ive had this particularly useful spreadsheet that Ive used for years and now its almost no good to me. I was on online with tech support for 2 hours trying to see if there was a way to reconvert them back to simple notes. It turns out I have to use the my laptop and redo the entire spreadsheet to re-add all my notes. I cant even find the “add note feature” on my iPad version. I am not happy at all with this comment thread feature!!
Microsoft Corporation is Retarded
by M:E/M)O(R\Y on 2020/04/30 22:14
I don’t care what this is, the app. All I care about is hating on Microsoft. Maybe they don’t make things, but when something is made, they infect it with Microsoft and then make it crappy and stupid. I once had Minecraft on my PC. Always have owned it, until I wanted to play it. Then it told me to buy it, AGAIN, for 30 more dollars. Then I redone loaded the new Modern Warfare, it originally costed 100$ or 60$ or something like that. To me, that’s a lot of money, same with 30$. I’m only - what? Thirteen. I got onto the new Modern Warfare after having to reinstall it 3 times because I thought it was glitched, then it said I could only play the stupid game mode - Warzone. So if you want to kill Microsoft with me before it makes you re-buy all of your games, then join me, we must eliminate and terminate Microsoft. For the better.
Entering formulas?
by QuantMike on 2019/10/19 23:03
Seems like a great idea to be able to open and edit your Excel files on your phone or iPad. I&#39;ve been using Excel for about a quarter century and never had that ability...how did I survive? Unfortunately, there is something squirrelly about the implementation...as far as I can tell, there is no way to actually enter formulas into a sheet. I can see formulas entered on the sheet when I built it on my desktop, but no way exists (as far as I can figure out) to enter the formula bar and type something. The store describes &#34;in-app purchases,&#34; so maybe you have to pay to get edit capability. In any event, view-only is still useful to me so two stars. Fix the implementation and make it possible to tap in the formula bar and type, and it becomes 4.5 or 5.
I pad version
by Fwretired on 2018/04/25 17:55
I have been using the Excel app on my I pad for a few years now and have a love hate relationship with it. Love the spread sheet capabilities, but sometimes I need the grid lines and cannot for the life of me get them to print. Tried everything that they recommend , but not luck. Sometimes, I make a spread sheet and can&#39;t print part of the sheet, especially if the address is in blue, so I have to go in and change it to black and even then, it sometimes doesn&#39;t work unless I e mail it to myself and then print. They should send some updates that actually work.
You have broken it utility in last version
by CableDOC on 2020/03/31 23:28
I have been using Excel for 15 years, and 5 years on iPhone and iPad. I add data copied from Word, Outlook or Apple Mail into spreadsheets on a daily basis. I have been using the paste button in the FX field or inside a cell. Now, I cannot find the Paste function in either place when I hold down my finger. Occasionally I can past over a whole cell when the blue corners appear, but probably only 1:5 times—and each attempt forces me to go back to the original document and copy data again. This is especially true when I am copying multi line addresses, as when the blue corner paste function works, I make 4-5 cells of data, instead of the single cell with multiple lines as before. PLEASE FIX THIS SOON so I don’t have to go back to Numbers my data editing.
Excel - great tool
by Brian McNamara on 2019/07/20 23:18
Great tool for just about every project. First used Excel at Rockwell on a 1984 Macintosh; Rockwell upgraded to Macintosh Plus the next year. If my memory is accurate both Mac’s had Excel and Word plus one or 2 other programs that are now part of MS Office. I was lucky to have a visionary VP at Rockwell (technically North American Rockwell) who ultimately eliminated the entire word processor department so, we, as technical writers, were able to create and produce our own modification manuals (Space Shuttle upgrades and modifications). Excel was my favorite because it was easy to integrate formulas, perform calculations and copy-paste results into Word; thereby producing our own document. IMB was running MS Dos and Windows was Microsoft’s competition against the easy to use drop and drag Macintosh Plus. But both computers used Excel. I still use Excel in my own business as do my employees. Early experience has made Excel all the more valuable - this remains true 35 years later. Brian Peter McNamara, CFP, MST
Pros n cons
by camelotsrefugee on 2018/09/15 04:27
Having a pre setup to only have to plug info into is nice...however.. Not being able it to copy and save as another document after I’d made major changes without fore knowledge of this was extremely frustrating and caused an additional hour of work to recreate a doc in manag my money sample...additionally, I could not then get the pie chart to translate the newer data..it simply disappeared ...I used excel for years and had been absent it for approximately five years and so rusty in memory of summing and formulas..having a tutorial would be extremely beneficial..the more comfortable people are with your product, the more inclined they will be to purchase the full program since this is apparently only the carrot and not the actual program
Beautiful, but lacking function
by SounDavs on 2020/02/06 00:49
I am using Excel on iPad Pro 12.9. For certain basic features, which I would normally right-click then select “Format Cells” to access, there seems to be no equivalent functionality on the iPad version yet. For example, with a column of dates all in different formats, I can’t simply highlight all of them and change them to the same MM/DD/YYYY style at once. The same is true of currency formatting, etc. I also do not see any “paste link” functionality which would allow multiple Excel sheets to talk to one another and update my cells automatically as I input data. Styling borders without a “Format Cells”-like option is painstaking.
Need more different types of Agenda template
by Charlen_21 on 2019/10/18 16:38
There still some bugs needs to be fix such as codes charters in excel s are causes some speed issues for the OS 13 and more on the IPhone and IPAD. .We also need more agendas template with vibrant new colors, update types of Agenda with cells with date, attendee, the main topic, subtopics and minutes matching the agenda that one share in Office Note . Office Note needs a whole lot up dates . I wish I could work fo Microsoft in the Office 365 departments, I would move the company more in the 21 century and also the company stocks would jump up 75%more
Problems since last update
by dansram on 2018/04/05 22:44
I use this app everyday. When you use the app, you can pin your regularly used worksheets to the top of your recent list. However, since the last update, after you make changes to your worksheet and save/close the worksheet, it is no longer pinned to the top and you’ll have to find it again and re-pin it. If you are changing between multiple worksheets that can (and is) quite tedious (and annoying). I’m not sure if this happens in other Microsoft for iOS apps, I haven’t tried. The only support you get is via the paid route or hopefully through their message boards (good luck). Otherwise it’s a good app.
Bugs and design flaw frustration
by Postmister on 2018/02/11 18:44
I love Excel! Love it! THIS, is bordering on unusable. More frustrating than anything because of the amount of bugs in this version. Half the screen disappears, for no reason, once every minutes and a half. The formula suggestions are defaulted to “insert” so when you type a formula the suggestions disappear. If it was just those things alone, 3-stars. BUT the design flaw is inexcusable. The pen functionality...... is garbage. Whoever, Engineer/Designer/Project Manger, decided that the pen is only useful for drawing, IN EXCEL!?!?, should be flogged! I get the ability to draw with a pen, sure, makes sense, but AUTO DEFAULTS to “draw”, the moment the pen touches the screen, with an inability to turn it off, is nothing short of incompetence. Very unhappy.
Solid B-
by Darkness0276 on 2017/10/31 15:09
I use the app consistently for accounting class but it crashes every five minutes. It takes a minute to reopen every time so I get behind. That being said, it does work well to generate formulas—though if you don’t already know excel, you may have problems. That’s the main reason I use it instead of doing manual math and handwriting all of my notes - the formulas error-proof the math. Needs a feature to increase or decrease indentations within a cell. Sometimes it will do it on its own, which makes everything inconsistent.
Loved this app - before the update.
by @mb3rl!7 on 2019/09/22 18:02
My Excel app has stopped functioning at least 12 times in the last week. I use it multiple times a day, and after about 3 uses it now will not open at all until I delete and reinstall the app from my phone. The bug fixes from the last update have completely backfired. This would be a 5 star app for me if the last update did not completely obliterate meaningful functionality. Happy to re-review in the event they expedite and push through another update, but the significantly decreased usability has left me irritated, especially considering I pay for a subscription and for the extent to which I use the app in my day to day. I hoped updating my iOS software would alleviate the problem, but that is not the case.
Time Sheets for Entertainment Labor.
by SkyHunter_LAW on 2017/11/18 18:14
This app is great. All the features work just like the full featured computer version. It allows for our leads in the field, to fill in the time sheets via their phones. For example outdoor events don’t always have a production office or for the first day or two hasn’t been established. Being able to do the work on your phone makes for a easy day. Imagine trying to set up a computer on a road case then tether to the Internet just to fill out time sheets n save to company Dropbox ?!!! This app is a win win.
Good but not good enough to do serious work
by Wise Young on 2017/10/08 08:11
Even with a keyboard, entering data is a pain. To fill, for example, you have to first click the first cell so that the menu shows and then select it. Then, you have to use your finger to drag the box to encompass the cells that you want to fill. To enter data into the cell, you have to click the FX window. The on screen keyboard is puts an undo button as part of the space bar. I can’t count the number of times that I have pressed the undo side of the space bar and undid all my work of the previous 5 minutes.
Stuck in “Downloading”
by Chalkos on 2019/09/18 13:34
I never ever ever write reviews for any apps because it’s a waste of my valuable time, but this one is the kicker. I have all my finances and activities for the year in spreadsheets and very often I find mysef in the need of having to uninstall and re-install the app because it would get stuck in “Downloading” and when I hit cancel, it would remain stuck in “Attempting to cancel”. The app in general is great, but how would you rate an app that you can’t even open? (Let alone the fact I pay Office 360 yearly).
