This app is ok, but a suggestion is to have some of the features that word document has. Like the option to add track check, and to able to have set goals.
Love it!

It’s a really good app, but I think you should also give word suggestions to the user when they are writing.
Dark Mode PLEASE
by Lezlie_G on 2019/06/24 04:18
I love this app! I really wish this app had a dark mode to use when writing at night.
I love it! 😍

I love that I can feel free to write books using different fonts and sizes! If you wanna write a book you should use google docs.

Cumbersome
by Morganaurora on 2019/06/22 22:52
Ok, i have switched most of my stuff to google docs because on a computer it works wonderful. But this app! It gets slower and more cumbersome to use every time i pull it up. I tap on something and but wow it’s 2 minutes before i get a response. It’s not the internet speed. My husband games and we stream video all the time. Frustrating. But now that all my shared docs are there, I feel stuck.

by Liniaisha❤️💕 on 2019/06/22 12:18
I like that it has different templates and lots of storage. There is file sharing and you could attach papers as a file and send them through email for work and other things. It is very similar to Microsoft Word, only editing with the space bar does not indent speedily. It is a very excellent platform though. You have to have a Google Account to use it, and I have written many papers in Google Docs. So much fun. Five Stars.
So good 😃😃😃
by cutePuppyEver on 2019/06/22 03:11
This app is perfect if I am making a book or making a article. Even if you need to work on it still you can work on your computer or laptop. This is perfect for me and my sister. We both love writing so this is perfect for us
Great app!

new feature?
by baby666222 on 2019/06/21 20:25
there’s a new feature that underlines text in blue. i guess it’s to correct grammar mistakes? anyway, it works terribly and it’s always underlining pieces of text that are actually grammatically correct. it’s super annoying, and i can’t get rid of the underlines without ruining the flow of my sentences with corrections that the text doesn’t even need. often, the suggested corrections will make a sentence that is already grammatically correct, incorrect!

I’ve always been a fan of Google Docs on a computer, but on the phone, it is the biggest nightmare ever. I’m at so hard to use which is totally opposite of the normal Google Doc. I waisted so much time on the phone because the app destroyed so much content multiple times.

Great for free time, but...
by MerrowWaterFire on 2019/06/20 08:13
I am going into 8th grade. So let’s be real, I use google docs a lot for essays on my school computer and such. But I also use it for writing short stories in my free time. When I want to look through my story and just see if there are plot holes or things that don’t make sense, two things happen that really annoy me. 1: the keyboard opens up while I’m scrolling. I just don’t like that it does that randomly to me when I’m nowhere near the button to pull it up. And 2: it starts lagging for me when there’s a part that I just finished on my laptop or something. It also lags a lot for me when I type maybe 100 words or so. But otherwise the app is perfect for when I think of a story idea while riding the bus home or when I can’t get to my personal laptop. Thanks!

Limited formatting options
by Mrs & Mrs Bickerson on 2019/06/18 21:57
I like the portability and share-ability of Google Docs but the options for formatting are super barebones. Maybe that’s what they were going for but if I need something that has even a touch of creativity, I need to use MS Word or Pages.
Stolen documentation
by yungmonsta69 on 2019/06/18 21:29

Docs is amazing. You can log into docs from any device (that being an apple, android, computer of any kind, etc...) I love having everything at the click of a button. Also being able to share any doc with someone and being able to see anything they write or edit. Docs is great for school, work, or even home. 10 out of 10 for me. 👍🏼

Document outline could be more useful
by sludge on 2019/06/17 23:32
While in a doc, editing or not, I wish we could access the document outline by swiping from left to right. That would be awesome. Right now it’s always two clicks away and not very convenient. Thanks for considering.

Mostly love this app. I use it to write everything and it’s great, but at random points it closes me out of the app and I have to reopen the app and find where I was in the document I was editing. Everything is usually saved, but it’s annoying having this happen repetitively.

by Smyponies on 2019/06/16 14:26
I use docs to write sometimes, but a major issue I have is that the word formatting is completely messed up. I don’t know if it’s just my device, but sometimes words that are a space apart are completely smashed together, and sometimes characters that are together are completely separated. It’s not way too distracting, though, but I prefer using it on a desktop.
Loved it until I got a new device
by RowanF on 2019/06/16 12:50
Evidently files are stored in an unusual way. When I got a new iPad some of my files in Documents were recoverable... and a lot weren’t. It didn’t occur to me to somehow record what I had so I have no idea what I’m missing until I look for it. My new iPad was defective and so I had to restore from backup again and lost more. I think I need to find a more reliable app.

by @davessuccess on 2019/06/11 14:58
This app is broken. What I mean by that is there is nowhere near the freedom that you have on DEST top which is unfortunate. We’ve been so used to saying that’s how it is that we stop demanding for better quality. Using Google Docs versus pages some of the features for iOS are not available thank goodness safari will be having full desktop website soon. Google step up your game and have your brand say no matter where you use our services they are the best.

by SoftShoulder on 2018/07/27 06:44
I’ve moved completely to Docs. Being a writer, I used to use Word, as many do; because it’s the industry standard. But I had more than one computer and phone die on me, taking my work with them. It’s devastating to see weeks and months, even years of your intellectual investment disappear with little hope of resurrection. So I have these dead computers I hold onto like they are in a cryogenic state and someday a cure will be found for them. Google Docs hasn’t cured my computers past, but they have given us all a vaccine that protects our work from certain death. By using this program, I am able to work anywhere, with my phone or laptop, somebody else’s computer, and with others on line if I want to collaborate or need editing. This freedom allows for amazing capabilities and dynamism for writers everywhere. The flow is smooth, it updates your and saves continuously, making obsolete the mantra “Remember to save your work often,” which is kinda hard to accept, honestly. The editing capabilities and tools are great, and it’s so initiative it feels like an Apple product. As a lifelong Apple devotee, I have been impressed over and over again, causing some strange irritation from past prejudice that keeps slipping away the more I use it. So if you’ve never heard of Docs and have been on the fence, I hope this settles your hesitation. It’s great. It really is.
Better for Personal Use
by NoEyesJess on 2019/05/05 19:41
I’ve been a longtime user of Google Docs—around three or four years—and it’s been great for storing important documents. I’ve also used it a lot for jotting down ideas, writing creative stories, and other personal uses. I feel that these are what the app is best for. I’ve tried to use it several times for academic essays, and the current format does not support certain basic functions, especially with indentation, adding page numbers in MLA or APA, and so on. The spell check for Google Docs is also flawed, and frequently marks everyday words as misspelled, and then other words not in the regular dictionary as perfectly correct. The syncing is also kind of finicky sometimes, and you can lose work or have to restart the app multiple times in one sitting, if you’re somewhere that there is no ideal connection. So if you’re a student or a professional, you are also going to want Microsoft Word, which has more features and is easier to use. However, the syncing generally works very well, and I love being able to back up all my documents. The aesthetic appearance of the documents are also very appealing, and most of the basic writing functions are easy to access. Keyboard shortcuts still work, and those shortcuts match to whichever model of computer you are using, so you don’t have to learn anything terribly new to use the app competently. It’s super easy to add other contributors, and to restrict privacy/use settings. All in all it has served me very ell.
Highly recommended, but definitely room for improvement
by Silvercove on 2018/08/06 06:43
Google Docs is very, very useful as a whole, providing services that allow seamless collaboration and that solve many past horrors of word-processors (like the classic “I didn’t save my doc and now it’s gone foreverrrrr!!”). As great as it is on desktop, I personally found the transfer to mobile devices a little, well, less great. It’s obviously difficult to find an intuitive way to lay out all the functions of Docs on desktop onto a smaller screen, but it’s honestly such a huge hassle navigating comments and suggestions, even when I’m on my iPad. It’s also kind of annoying that I can’t zoom out more on a doc—basically, once the width of the page fills the screen, I can no longer zoom out. This doesn’t sound like a huge deal, but it makes for a lot of tedious scrolling when an already long document has relatively large text. Additionally, there are these small annoying glitches that occasionally occur. For example, when I was editing a doc, I kept trying to delete a space, but it would always delete the space and the letter behind it. I tried over and over again to no avail... sigh.... It also seems to me that Docs can get kind of slow? I’m on a new device, so the hardware should be working fine, but there’s a huge lag when I’m trying to type in the app. Other than these few problems, everything else has been working fine and going smoothly.
Fantastic with some suggestions
by JEMmusy on 2018/09/17 21:03
I love the way docs works because it saves your data constantly and it doesn’t glitch on you and it provides you with so many ways to type notes for school, writing, and much more. I do have some suggestions to make the work flow for taking notes easier though. When it comes to fonts, there are specific ones I like to use for notes, but it becomes a pain to have to go back and switch it to the font you like instead of the default Ariel. The same goes for the headings and other text variations. They default to Ariel instead of the font that you were using before hand. Another suggestion I have is to make a keyboard short cut for the horizontal line. That would make dividing sections of writing way easier. The last suggestion I have is to also make a key board short cut for the list option styles. For example, I don’t like using the default dot style for the list. I like using the star one because it makes the list more interesting to look at. So instead of defaulting to the dot style it could default to the style of list that you were using before hand. For example, I would be using the star style of list and then I would section that list off with a horizontal line and then begin to start a new list that would then default to the star style. In general, maybe you guys could make google docs more customizable or at least have let it have the option to be more customizable with custom keyboard commands for different things.
Great, except...
by ivd37950 on 2018/06/18 06:51
Like most people of Generation Z, the later years of my education (8th grade-present) have greatly benefited from using Google applications such as Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Google Docs’s amazing accessibility, collaboration tools, storage, and auto-save have always been what’s made it better than competing office tools. The app itself is great, and once you get the hand of using it on a hand held device, it makes working from almost anywhere possible. I’ve found myself using these Google applications for more than just essays and presentations now a days, as I begin to need work resumés and finance budgets. So really, Docs (and other Google applications) are great! Except, I’ve encountered an issue when using this Docs app. Now, this could be because of several reasons, however, I’ve found that after prolonged used, when typing, the keyboard begins to lag a bunch, making working on documents so frustrating. At first I thought that the keyboard could be lagging because my iPad might’ve over heated? But, the keyboard has lagged even when the iPad doesn’t feel warm. I’m not sure if internet connection might have something to do with it, but my Wifi is pretty strong, and I rarely encounter issues with it. That’s my only complaint, but other than that I really do love the app.
Love Google docs
by Keltonisayapperdog on 2018/02/19 11:14
I absolutely love google docs, especially since I’m in college and it saves your work automatically when your up at 2:00am trying to finish an essay that is due that same day and you fall asleep. There probably is away to do this, but if not I wish there would be away to categorize documents into different folders for different projects or classes and or poor year. I think this would be very helpful for me since one day I would love to show my kids that hard work does pay off. The slide shows are excellent and great for presenting history projects to make them at least semi fun and very easy to use once you learn to switch over from PowerPoint... but the basic outline I personally feel is similar yet differently. The docs were it is like Microsoft Word is very identical just a few extra perks of not having to save, having all of your work in one place, and very easy usage. The only reason for a 4 star was the fact is that if it doesn’t have the filing system “ I would be surprised if it didn’t” again probably haven’t figured it out, but have been using this program since 2015 at-least so I think I would have found it, but things fly over everybody's head sometimes “am I right or am I right?”
Great for writing, but hard to insert equations
by EngineeringUndergrad on 2018/11/29 04:22
Google’s Docs is fantastic! It is nice to have your document constantly backed up without hassle. I have grown to prefer using this app over Microsoft’s Word and Apple’s Pages. I use this app mostly on an iPad and keyboard. One thing that stand out for google docs over the other word processing apps is its ease to format using keyboard shortcuts. In iOS this is HUGE!!! The ability to use keyboard shortcuts drastically improves productivity when working in a touch based operating system! With that being said, I cannot do all my work on this app. I can type up most of my documents using this app, but I need to switch to a different device to do some finishing touches before publishing my documents. For example, it would be nice to change a documents margin’s while using this app. It also would be nice to insert equations using this app. As it stands, those features remain on the web based version of docs and not on the iOS version. That being said, google docs is my go to app for any word processing on an iOS device. It is clear the team at google have put a lot of work into developing this app, perhaps even more than its competitors.
Excellent Work!
by BlitzyWolf on 2017/12/07 15:08
I’ve used Google Docs for quite some time now. Though I only used the computer version, because I didn’t have a phone or know the Google Docs app existed. So, when I found out about this, I got it immediately! It was, and still is an amazing tool for my everyday life. The only issues I have with this, is that when your document contains too much information/pages, you could probably type six sentences before it finished putting down the first one.. Copying and pasting is quite difficult, and for some reason, it doesn’t want me to copy the first quotation marks of a sentence. I much prefer using the computer with Google Docs over the mobile version, because I can type much faster with the computer. That’s just my opinion, however! With the computer, Google Docs basically isn’t an option, due to Wi-Fi and other complications. So having it on my phone is amazing. Despite some minor flaws, such as holding down backspace and watching it delete excessive amounts of stuff... this is an excellent app! If you’re looking for a free, easy way to access your documents wherever you go, then I strongly believe this app is for you!
Google Docs is OK but painful on iPad
by Teliantes on 2017/10/30 07:12
I think if I used an external keyboard it might be better, but formatting and getting spreadsheets to function like excel is really not an option. I find that trying to select text to cut and paste or copy or for formatting font size or color is very frustrating. You have to grab and roll your finger just right or you select too much. Also, when backspacing, use caution. I couldn't stop it from deleting far more than i wanted. Make sure you select what you want to delete instead of relying on bkspc to stop when you want it to. I am happy I found a way to do my budget on my iPad since my laptop is tedious to start up just to work on my finances, but i do wish it wasn't so painful to toggle into edit mode. Google should talk to more end users, and I am also not a fan of the company being that I have a 35 yr Career in Technology and I am FEMALE...so I am sure they will wake up and come into the 21st century soon with their treatment of women, and get more women managing projects and holding positions of power. Their tolerance for misogyny is incredibly sickening. I wish someone from a more progressive company would invent a better alternative since I don't trust or like Google.
Good for the most part
by asy4239 on 2017/11/16 17:32
Google docs is a fantastic website to use to get work done. It auto saves, allows collaboration, and has so many other features. The app, however, lags so much when typing that you can type a sentence or phrase and reasonably expect to wait another 10+ seconds before it finishes typing. And this is on a doc with only one person on it. Imagine the frustration when multiple people are on it! And if you think it’s done typing and go to fix an error earlier in the sentence, it will continue typing in the middle of the sentence (even though you finished typing several seconds prior). Another problem with it is the inability to copy and paste MLA citations in it. If I’m working on an essay and need to make a bibliography, I’ll copy the formatted citation from an online citation maker, paste it into google docs, then have to manually readjust the spacing to make it correct. While you can just paste it into Word and go, you can’t with google docs, which is frustrating, especially when you’ve got 15 sources to format manually. (This is a problem with the website on a computer, too.)
I ❤️ Google Docs but...
by Jaquelin2.0 on 2019/02/21 00:46
Well, honestly, Google Docs is AMAZING! I love all the features and it just has this very nice atmosphere and it’s just...AWESOME!!! But there is just ONE little problem. You see, before I had an iPhone, I had an LG phone. Specifically, the LG Fortune. And when I had that phone, you could put emojis in the text. But NOW I can’t even add an emoji! I bet you’re thinking this is useless, but what about when I’m writing a story or something? Like for example, I add a texting part to my story. Then, I do it like someone adds an emoji to their text. It WOULDN’T appear! It kinda get’s me a little disappointed because it ruins the whole book. I don’t care if whoever’s reading this thinks I’m dumb or stupid, but hey! I’m saying MY opinion! Isn’t that what a review is for? To share your opinion about a thing (in this case, an app)? Anyway, I just think that Google Inc. should consider this and improve it or fix it. But overall, Google Docs is an extraordinary app that I recommend to everyone. 😄
Great and all, a lifesaver, but might need some adjustments
by MethrionDiamond on 2018/06/21 20:39
So, my life is very packed and full, and every time I want to write something, I usually use google docs. It makes life so much easier that I don’t have to use my laptop to write when I have this great mobile app. The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars is because there are more functions on the computer version than there are on the app. For example, on computers you can indent and such. However, I can’t indent on the app. Also, I love it, but I wish there would be an easier way to sort everything, like a folder or something. There probably already is something like this, or I just didn’t find it yet. Compared to Microsoft word, google docs is a worthy competitor. Microsoft has more functions, but google docs are free and Microsoft costs.. I don’t even know. I wish they would add a way to insert charts and text boxes onto a doc. However, compared to word, I like it better because you can collaborate/work with friends while on Microsoft word, it is much harder. I like google docs.
50/50
by Dragoncityplayermelissa^-^ on 2017/10/14 21:35
I’ve been using google docs for 3 years now. Personally, I prefer the laptop as it is easier to type on, and type much more freely. But, on my laptop, accessing google docs, contains needing WiFi/service to type on / loading chrome or a web browser. By that, it’s not portable, or able to use on the go. I’ve used google docs on my iPad before, and I type pretty OK on my iPad, but not nearly as fast on my laptop. But you can use it on the go-to, but without WiFi. I’m pretty sure there isn’t the great ‘add-ons’ like the ones on computer, or laptop. Google docs, is a free, accessible great essential for any student of all ages. It’s great, it’s literally like word, but you don’t have to pay an expensive budget for it. Docs is just perfect for anyone, and it’s so great. Literally, they’re add on(s) for people who also need it. Highly recommend, all though it’s worldwide to schools, throughout everywhere. Google docs will always be a great essential.
Highly recommend, just a few small complaints.
by AwkwardMusicLover on 2018/11/08 17:49
I honestly prefer google docs over Microsoft Word, and I’ve used docs for many years now and I loved it. I find it a lot easier to get through essays and other journaling much faster with docs because of easy access to different settings. Only complaint (for both desktop and mobile) is a few glitches it has. I mainly use docs on my laptop, and I’ve noticed a lot of the time when I first open a new document, it’s very slow trying to load and will sometimes completely stop working after typing a few words. Another thing, it’s a little frustrating not being able to edit the margin sizes unless you search “margins” in the Help tab. It would be much more convenient if there was a Page Setup tab. Those are small and not super important complaints, but I’m all about convenience and easy organizations!
Perfect for Educators
by Your Glamologist on 2019/04/22 17:38
I love google docs for so many reasons . I can work on a document from anywhere around the world and from any device . It’s so convenient and allows me that flexibility that I don’t have in Microsoft Word. And to me Google is amazing because they still understand the need for Microsoft Word so they give you an option to save your files as a Microsoft Word document. But the real reason why I love Google Docs so much is because I am an educator and I have been using Google Docs as my whiteboard the same as I have in class. I share the document with my students. They can click on links for assignments. I can share notes with them and they can reply back to me. I also can comment on their work that they create in Google Docs and help them outside of school. Google docs makes my life as he cosmetology educator much easier. Thanks So much Google your so smart! The GlamBoss The Siobhan Nicole
How I feel about Google docs
by Kelsey Rush on 2017/10/24 00:42
Personally I use Google docs for just about everything and anything or use it for school things so if I need to write a paper I tend to use this more than Word, or if I am like doing pictures for like a slide or something like that and I want to see which ones I like more where I just want to save them on my computer I don’t tend to save them to my computer I tend to put them on a Google doc and just transfer them over to slide. I really do recommend Google docs for kids or adults who are in middle school high school and even college I know my parents they use Google docs when they were in college and they’re 40 something and they went to college and they were like 35 but they use Google Docs a lot too and yes Word has some features that Google doc doesn't however, Google doc has stencil type things for Google slides and it helps a lot.
Retiree road trip journaling with ease
by Roadtripretiree on 2017/10/02 13:45
For my needs, this app is 5 stars, although I haven't used it for documents that I want to edit or that are for others to assess. A year ago I bought an IPad mini, a keyboard case that fits my hands perfectly, and have now used gdocs on several trips. I use it for to do lists, packing lists, and for journaling along the way. I type faster and more clearly than I write and also flow more freely when I'm typing. On our current trip I experimented, opening up the journal while out of wi fi--and it worked! I wrote using my Iphone, then my Ipad, and when I was in wifi, they synched--wonderful! What I wish--that I could be confident that any documents I do want to share with folks who don't have gdocs would work as attachments that everyone could open. I'm not sure about that, so for those documents I still use Microsoft Word.
Not Quite Adequate — Especially for Real-Time Collaboration
by MTBKit on 2017/12/21 14:54
Do you want to type stuff into a Google Doc that other people can read later? This is fine. Do you want to edit documents other people have created? This will do it. Want to do that collaboratively while several of you are sitting around a table? Put away your iPad and go get a laptop. This app has significant deficiencies. Suggestions and comments are entirely divorced from their location in the document. Other features are similarly hobbled. The enormous list of “Recent” documents is useless. Creating a new document doesn’t even put it at the top of the list. That new document goes right at the root of your Drive, by the way, with no option to create it exactly where you want it. The only way to keep things organized is through a long series of taps to move your new document to the desired location. The modal Edit/View interface is enormously frustrating. I don’t really like using Google Docs on a traditional computer. Using it on an iPad is worse.
Great! But one problem...
by Graysonlover on 2018/01/05 08:36
Hey I love the app. I really do. It’s probably one of my most used apps on my phone. But I have a slight problem. I think the most recent update. But my Docs app closes too often/ soon. I tend to use the app and then switch to reply to a message or post something. It’s a pretty quick transaction. And then when I come back to docs I'm taking out onto the main screen. It’s honestly very annoying. The time it takes to load the page I was just on is longer too. And it happens EVERY TIME I leave. Is there a way to fix this? There was a time when it would stay exactly where I was after being inactive for hours! And now it leaves in a matter of seconds. Please change this. I’d like to be able to use other features on my phone while still being able to get back to my docs in a timely manner.
Occasionally Glitchy but Otherwise Great
by manquedamour on 2018/01/22 15:10
Generally the Google Docs app works pretty well. I only use it for writing and making minor edits to class notes on my phone. But often I find when I’m typing that the screen will jump around. It also doesn’t play nice with Apple’s autocorrect at times. But the accessibility across devices is great. I can be editing or typing on my phone, and immediately switch to my computer and it updates in real time. This is also helpful for class projects, wherein I can be working with a group and we will all edit in real time and work on the same project, whether it’s an essay, brainstorming, or on the other google groups, the Slides app for PowerPoints. My biggest complaint over everything is just that each part of the google drive docket comes as a separate app. Docs is separate from Slides is separate from Spreadsheets is separate from plain ole Google Drive.
Great for On The Go Lifestyle
by 9838509 on 2017/11/09 15:00
Kid you not, I'm a 21 unit university student, working full time this semester. Having this app on my iPhone has saved my grades, as I don't have to carry my macbook around to finish up my papers and such. I just write a paragraph or two during my lunch hour, or during a bathroom break (don't kid yourself that you don't do it too lol), or whenever I have a few minutes to spare, and by the end of the day, I've already finished up my paper(s) while I was running around at work, doing errands, etc. I saw Thor in theaters with a friend of mine and decided to write whatever I could for an industrial health course I'm taking in that one sitting during the previews. I was able to get half of my paper done right before Thor began! When I got home, I only had to spend an extra 15 minutes on it, then I turned it in. Great use of time! I love this app!
The best for anything!
by Marshmellow Pumkin on 2018/05/08 00:58
Google Docs has been the most useful app for me to be able to create multiple pages of Stories, Characters, Poems, and more! This is often the go to app for schools. It’s very simple to be able to share it to others like teachers or other students for projects, and that’s not the only limit since I use it when sharing with friends. I use this both in the computer and with my iPad. With google doc just logging in to your account is very quick and it holds all your data for you so you don’t need to worry which is a great relieve! I hope that this app stays on forever because I won’t be able to find another app like this, being free as well. If there were any recommendations I also like Google Slides although it’s a bit harder to use on the go. Sincerely, Google Doc User.
Changed my mind
by NanaPaula on 2018/08/04 20:45
I enjoy having this app. I can edit my documents, change fonts, etc. I can do a page set up, so I know how it will print. I like that I can use on OS and IOS. It all backs up. It all syncs. What I DO NOT LIKE, is it duplicates itself. It is in Google Drive, iCloud Drive, and if you make a folder. I took notes on my Spanish lessons. I have different documents for different lessons. 1. It moves the document is you edit, open etc. Depending on what you pick. However, if you want all the docs to stay in same order after editing it, it will not. You can put by alphabet, but it still moves docs around. I would like the option of them staying in the place I put them and if I want to move...be able to drag. 2. If you create a doc, it automatically goes to their Drive app if you have that app. So, I am deleting. I do not want on multiple places. 3. If you make a file folder on GOOGLE DOCS, it does not move doc to file folder, it just duplicates it. Again, I would like to be able to send to separate file folders and then delete from GOOGLE DOC, DRIVE, or wherever, and they stay in the file folder; the choice of keeping or deleting on any app and not loosing on the other. Or keep in one of other doc holders and delete from others. This is on the apps that file share. Nice to be able to send to another app or file, but should be able to delete from one without loosing from the other.
Greatest thing about Docs
by Lorimcco on 2018/11/29 19:02
The thing I like best about Google Docs is its use over time. I know a Google Engineer and he clued me in on this one. We are part of a larger, mostly volunteer organization. It’s been around for a while, and many of the documents from 20 years ago, done with other word processing programs, are not find-able, but when we do find them they are no longer readable with current software. Google docs will not have either of those problems—as long as Google goes on the Docs will be available and readable. The problem of incompatibility of software, not just between users but also over time, goes away. In so many other ways Google Docs is vastly improved over the early versions. And I really like that both Docs and Sheets are available on all devices.
great computer version, but...
by Marshmellow Kittycorn on 2019/05/24 02:33
Google Docs is amazing tool for school, and a great app for writing. You can connect with friends, editors, and co-authors on the same document, and the layout is beautiful. Although, the app is pretty limited and does not provide the full experience of Google Docs. I would recommend this over competing brands, such as Word, but the grammar and spelling check doesn’t work very well. Also, a great addition would be to add folders to put the Docs in. As a clean-freak, it’s a bit stressful having a hundred different documents floating around with no way to group the ones for school and the ones for stories. They have this feature in Drive, but it doesn’t translate over to Docs. But overall, Docs is hands down the greatest word processor I’ve ever used! With some little tweaks in the future, this will be the perfect word processor for professional and personal use! -leah
Google Docs is a My Dream Come True
by Chelsrg91 on 2018/02/22 11:24
My personal computer is a Mac and I use it a LOT for work. At work our computers are all HP. For years I have spent countless hours trying to convert documents so that they are readable on each device, wasting precious time. I also use notes on my phone a lot and then always have to copy, paste to an email, send to my computer, paste to a word document on my computer, etc... thus a long process. With google docs, i can work on the same project from my phone, personal computer, work computer, tablet, heck anyone’s device because it is all saved and it is all right in front of me! I agree with another review that the option for folders would be nice, but I’m seriously just so happy to be able to work on all projects in the same place!
Good, but pls optimize this app for more heavy usage
by soni.chan on 2019/02/01 05:05
While this app is a great substitute for the PC version of Docs, its not fully optimized for IOS or apps. Its nice if you’re quickly pulling up a document to type something up that’s last minute or doesn’t require a lot of time or presentation, but for people who use the app heavily, like on the iPad Pro, it’s frustrating. For one, the Office-Docs compatibility format doesn’t save, which means that in order to print you have to make a billion copies on order for it to save in an edited, print ready format, which even then doesn’t work. Another frustrating feature is that multiple documents can’t be opened and viewed at the same time, which should be possible for iPad Pro split screen viewing but unfortunately is not and leads to annoying back and forth flipping. Overall, good app if wanting to make last minute tweaks, but for heavy users, this app needs some work.
A game changer!! I Love It!!
by Picture Obsessed Mom of 3 on 2019/05/28 11:10
Google docs is amazing and is a real game changer! I use it for all different things- to keep track of notes to myself, to type up things I want to print later, to have a place to cut and paste things. I also have used it very successfully to share documents with others, individuals or groups/committees, so that multiple people can add to or edit a document. This came in hugely helpful when I chaired a charity event last year. Everything my committee needed was on Google Docs, so we were all on the same page and very organized. I also appreciate updates that have been made, such as better formatting options. All in all I have found it extremely useful and helpful and have not had any problems with it. Two thumbs up 👍🏻👍🏻
Great App, but Needs More Functionality
by AAThompson02 on 2019/05/01 16:44
The Google docs is very limiting as a power user on the iPad. I just recently upgraded to the iPad Pro and was hoping to use it as a replacement for my MacBook since the majority of the things that I do are either Google related or for school which works fine online. I wouldn’t say that the Google Docs iPad app is horrible, however, at times I find it becomes laggy which makes it difficult, and it would be very useful if I had the capability to open multiple docs side by side. Most of the functionality of Google Docs is available on the iPad app, however, multitasking is very limiting as well as performance at times. I would love to see the kinks worked out because Google Docs is so awesome. It’d be great to have the best of both worlds. I often find myself going back to my MacBook for those capabilities and think there’s so much more potential for the app on iPad.
Editing/Commenting a Nightmare!!
by ellewoodsjd on 2019/03/11 08:14
I’m a hobby artist, so I recently decided to ditch my personal laptop in favor an an iPad and iPencil (I still have a work laptop). The Google Docs App, though, has made this transition incredibly difficult! First, Google blocks access to the browser version of Google Docs if you are using an iPad. Nevermind that the screen is the same size as my old MacBook. Nevermind that I have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. The Google Docs app is my ONLY option for accessing google docs from my iPad. And unfortunately, the App is not an adequate replacement. The toolbar is pared down, and much harder to navigate. It took me forever to figure out how to change the setting for link-sharing, so that anyone with the link could edit. And the “suggest changes” function is incredibly clunky. The changes all show up as “hidden suggestions” or “hidden comments”, and the person viewing them has to laboriously click every individual suggestion and “view suggestion.” It’s also very difficult to do anything other than “accept” or “reject” once you have found a suggestion. If the suggestion requires more nuanced editing, forget it! Overall, the app works in a bind, but it is not a very intuitive app and it is a very inferior product to the browser version! Please consider a redesign Google, or at the very least allowing the browser version to be accessed in-browser on an iPad!
Without google docs I would be a mess!!
by Henises on 2019/05/06 03:31
I hope you take this review into consideration because I’m a retire military surgeon!! And a freelance writer as well as Forensic Anthropologist. I consider myself very OCD as far as organising my life and I can tell you that without google docs, I can find another way to do my work, however, with google docs everything I do write, and organise, etc., is pretty delightful to find everything I need on one app. I cannot but encourage this application to anyone who needs to organise their life, work, at home, etc. It’s very important what every human do to help others and in order to do so, I rely on Google Docs tremendously. I appreciate how easy it is to work with it and how everything follows into a pattern once you get used to utilise it. Thanks google Dr. Brennan S.
Great alternative to Apple Notes app
by HelpGiveThanks on 2019/04/04 15:51
The most awesome thing about these smart phones is the ability to collaborate at a distance on documents using things like the checklist feature. Unfortunately, Apple’s Note app only works on iPhones 😔. Google Docs is a wonderful alternative allowing colleagues to collaborate with any device. I would give the Google Docs app the fifth star if it had a real checklist bullet that I could check with my finger on a smart phone screen. (Of course, it probably has earned the fifth star already because 1) unlike Apple’s Note app, Google docs keep track of who checks off which items in a checklist, (albeit using the check icon ✅ in our group), and 2) because notes can be kept in a sub, of a sub, of a sub folder 📁 allowing for superior organization of notes for professional and academic work groups.
CRASHES WITH NEW IOS 11 UPDATE!
by LollaBells on 2017/09/25 14:18
I use google docs all the time, so I’m really hoping you guys fix the bug that won’t allow us to open docs once we update to IOS 11. I updated on my IPad Pro can’t open docs, I didn’t update on my iPhone 6s yet, I can open docs fine like normal.. please fix this or I’m going to have to uninstall you. Most every other app has already fixed their issues with the new 11 update.. I waited a few days to see if google would update and so far, well your behind everyone else. Now I can’t use my IPad when I need to the most, but am inconvenienced and have to use my phone. If people have 2 devices I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ONLY UPDATING ONE AT FIRST ! Because some haven’t fixed bugs, and you won’t be able to use their app, not with this update. It really stinks for those that depend on services using one device. But hopefully a better product will be replacing google soon anyway.
Fix this
by InnocentLlama32 on 2017/09/24 21:18
I always use this app as my go-to for schoolwork, but there are so many issues. For one, when I try to select a few certain words, it either selects the whole row and the one below it and it won’t let me unselect it, or it selects one letter and won’t move. And when I am making a list like: 1. (Words) 2. (Words) And so on, when I try to return down to start an example, it creates a 3 and then I return again and it disappears. I write my new thought and type 3. And then click the space bar and it doesn’t do anything. I spacebar the 3. up to where the rest are so it looks clean, and when it starts a new sentence behind the list, I can’t space it up like the rest. The spacebar does nothing. I have to create white text to move it up. And when I tab on those sentences trying to align them, it tabs over the sentence above the one I am on and when I click the delete to undo the tab, it moves up again and deletes the last letter on that section. It is just so frustrating. Please fix these.
Something’s up with my app
by comos tas? on 2018/12/06 04:02
I’ve been using google docs a lot over my past school years because it’s such a reliable source to work on with your classmates on projects and classwork assigned to you by your teacher on google classroom. It works fine on the computer, but the app refuses to let me sign into google docs because of an apparent “device policy alert”. I don’t get this: i’ve updated my google docs app to the latest version, my iphone to the latest version and even tried restarting my phone and deleting and re-downloading the app. Nothing seems to work. It used to be so helpful to have this app on my phone so even if I'm miles away from the nearest computer, I could work on my schoolwork. But now this device policy alert removes my ability to work on it at all. I hope this is just a bug or glitch, or the app comes out with a new update deleting this blockage.
App is great, but I’m having a problem...
by .ixabel. on 2019/05/11 01:27
Okay, I’ve been using Google Docs for a while now. It’s amazing, reliable, and easy to use. I use it for school and for personal use. But lately I’ve been having trouble with it, and I think I might be the only one? I don’t know, but it’s kind of weird. For some odd reason, my Google Docs (on my iPad) has been really frustrating lately—the italics font doesn’t work. I have to delete Google Docs every time for it to work, but then when I leave the app, and try typing in italics, I’m right back at square one. I honestly don’t know what the problem is, but I think it might have to do with the case I have on my iPad. It’s like a regular case, but has a keyboard attached, making it look like a laptop. I’m not sure what it is, though, and I’d really appreciate it if I could get some help. Thanks!
A few improvements and it’ll be just what I need
by Zoe 401 on 2018/05/14 02:03
Don’t get me wrong, Google Docs is pretty cool. But there are just a few errors that make it almost unuseable and having me search for an alternative. Being blind, I use voiceover to navigate and use my iPad and iPhone 6. And for the most part, google docs works great with said screen reader. It lets you know what formatting you have in place and navigating tables is a breeze. But that stupid key echo. Whenever I type, it says each and every character even though i set it to only repeat words. Not to mention the fact that whenever I delete a character, instead of saying the character in a low pitch (like it’s suppose to) it says ‘selection deleted. Which makes it very hard to keep track of how much I’ve deleted. Also it doesn’t speak spaces when I use the arrow keys on my keyboard to move the cursor but that’s not as big an issue as the ones mentioned above. One more thing, I like to type my documents and then import them to scrivener, but there doesn’t seem to be a simple way to do this. Instead of having the traditional share window show up there’s this weird menu about formats and stuff? I don’t even know. But maybe I don’t know how to do it maybe there is a way. Thanks for reading and I hope you take my suggestions into consideration.
Been using for awhile now.
by Betsu-nee on 2018/03/13 03:01
Okay, so a few years back a dear friend showed my docs on my computer. We co-write (rp) together, and it gives a great place to do that since you can share with anyone else using docs. The grammar and spelling check is really nice, and the auto save feature is great! The reason the app gets four and not five stars is because the phone app itself has issues with larger docs(like 30 pages, I think) and won’t load well after that point. I understand why though, and am not actually bothered by it too much since I still have a computer, but I do have to notice which documents ARE that large, because it’ll sometimes it freezes up my phone(needing a restart). The phone app is also a bit more complicated to navigate than the computer version, but it is easy enough.
Great for a basic college student.
by TheSailorette on 2017/11/25 19:04
I am a college student and I am constantly between classes trying to pull out my tablet to work on my papers for different classes. I started using Docs in general because then I could bounce between my tablet at school and my desk top at home. But when I discovered this app it made life so much easier because I'm always on my phone too! I am able to write my papers then go to my tablet or desk top to ensure it is formatted right (I am just not tech savvy with this app) and then I can save a word form of the paper and turn it in online. All the google apps like Google slides, forms, etc are amazing to use and do what you need. I don't know how to do spread sheets or anything fancy but it gets me by with ease when it comes to basic papers!
LOVE IT
by 100Rainbows on 2018/10/13 21:51
I really like Google Docs because of how convenient it is! Say you’re in a car with somebody and you forgot to type the ending to a school project in your account, well you can just use Google Docs and get it done! You don’t know HOW MANY TIMES THIS APP HAS COME IN HANDY. Especially because I only have my device right now to access my account. One thing though, I really wish that it wasn’t so confusing. I’ve had this app for a long time and I STILL can’t figure out if you can share a document or if you can’t! And if you CAN share a document, HOW? Where’s the share button?? HELP! But I find it kinda weird how everything kind of tends to be... EVERYWHERE. To me, I find it really hard to find some things I need at the moment. Like tools for changing the font, or font size. But other than that ONE MINOR PROBLEM, I LOVE THIS APP!!!!!
This app is my saving grace
by ggyivfrryuuhsas on 2018/02/01 07:55
I’ve had so many short stories, novellas, and full novels saved by Google Docs. When my computer crashed and had to be wiped (since got a new one, but the loss was felt!), I was terrified I’d potentially lost over ten years of writing. I’d switched to Docs about a month prior and hadn’t realized it was all still there until I opened the app on my phone and saw everything was right there. It was a huge relief. My only issue with the mobile app is that it sometimes lags as I’m typing, and I can be three sentences ahead before it finally begins to stutter out the first. It’s so frustrating, especially when I see tons of typos and have to rewrite it all. I’d thought it was my old iPhone 4, but it’s the same with the iPhone 8 now too.
Use This... Stories, Schoolwork, etc.!
by Alyson 💕 on 2017/10/22 21:33
I write stories, and I aspire to be an author or a language arts teacher when I’m older. In school, I can’t write many fictional stories, mostly personal narratives, but I’m quite honestly running low on stories about myself and can’t help the fact that all of my stories turn even the slightest fictional. We used this in class for personal narratives, and once in fourth grade something for Father’s Day. I went home after the first day of using this and started writing out my fictional stories from notebooks. I spent hours and hours writing and writing. On google docs. See, even this is a little fictional, because I only spent one hour. Haha, sorry. But the next day, I did it again! And everyday since. Get this app!
So, it’s not terrible...
by Alex K 8 on 2018/08/26 20:19
Google Docs is ok, not great, not terrible. My main problem is docs with pictures in them. On a computer, the document is fine, no problems with the pictures, with the app, it is a huge problem. After finishing the doc with pictures on my Mac, I opened the same doc, expecting everything to be in the same place. Boy was I wrong. Pictures were scattered across the document in places where I did not put them at all. Pictures that I had set for the text to wrap around broke up the entire text. Pictures I had set next to each other were separated, rendering them moot. I understand that it is difficult to make every feature on the computer Google Docs available on the app, but for an iPad, at least the pictures should stay where I put them. Please fix if by some slim chance someone from Google is reading this.
Unable to switch IME when using physical keyboard
by llsqc on 2018/10/28 08:09
My device is iPad Pro 10.2” with iOS 12. On large screens MS Word requires 365 subscription so I turned to Google Docs, which feels perfect on PC. But I was unable to switch between Chinese Shuangpin and English by pressing Ctrl-Space or Caps on my BT keyboard K480. It works when on-screen keyboard is shown, but for productivity I have to connect to external keyboard. I know Google maintains outstanding engineering practice so there must be a quick and clean fix, only that not enough users tell them about the problem. What’s more, formatting is not as convenient as that in Pages, which has a formatting bar on the bottom of edit interface. Also, the fonts support is so very limited. For a document app that has been free from the beginning, Google Docs does great work, but now that the Apple suite’s become free too, Google needs to keep up.
Needs an equation feature for IOS.
by thedenominator159 on 2019/04/11 17:42
Google Docs is an excellent text editing application. I use it to type various different documents. Creating worksheets, typing papers, and writing the occasional letter are incredibly easy to accomplish. The automatic save feature is wonderful, and I never have to worry about losing a document because of it being automatically uploaded to Google Drive. However, I believe Google Docs needs an equation feature for IOS. I am a Math teacher and currently working towards a Master’s in Mathematics. Recently, I purchased the 2018 iPad Pro to hopefully integrate more technology into the classroom, but I was appalled when I found out that Google docs doesn’t have an equation feature for their mobile app. This makes editing worksheets and working on research papers for analysis classes much more difficult. If Google Docs would add the equation feature, then it would be the perfect text editing app.
Great App, Has Some Issues
by Zeigne_o_Phobia on 2019/03/24 18:15
First, I’ll talk about the things well done about this app. Docs is simple in design, but easy to use and access. I know I’m not alone in saying this is one of the best parts of this app, as I oftentimes find it very difficult to use technology. I don’t have a computer simply because it’s so difficult to download and access files and writing apps. But Docs is so simple, at least for iPhones and iPads — all I have to do is download the app, open it with a tap of my finger, and press the red plus on the bottom right to create a new document. And voila — I’m prepared to write the next major, bestselling novel. Now on to the issues. I have around 100 short writing pieces on another account — it used to be my main one. That “ex account” belongs to a G—suite that will soon be shutting down. The problem is, there’s no easy way to transfer files between accounts with iPads and iPhones. You have to create files, share them with a new account, duplicate them, or just copy-and-paste the contents. But with hundreds of documents, that’s an extreme issue. If Google improves methods to transfer files on mobile, I will eagerly change my rating to a 5 star. I love this app and have used it for years, but there’s some issues I’m worried about. Thank you for your time.
Easy to access important docs on phone
by Anna Teel on 2018/06/20 12:41
One of my favorite things about google docs is the fact that it automatically saves your edits so you don’t have to remember to go back and do it all the time. It’s really nice and convenient to be able to attach my docs easily to emails when I need to. The only downside is that when I use it on my phone, the formatting gets a little wonky sometimes and when I touch a word or phrase to change it and start deleting letters, the formatting usually moves it off my screen so I have to stop and zoom out and try to find it again so I can see what I’m doing. The best way to use the app that I’ve found is to try to do most of your editing on a pc or laptop and just use the finished product when you’re on your phone. Not bad over all tho.
I Overall Enjoy It
by Shanimal10 on 2018/02/20 00:52
I’ve been using Docs for almost 3 years and I’d definitely recommend it. I’ve used it for notes, stories, movie scripts, backup picture saves, and my resume. However, the thing that prevents it from getting a perfect 5/5 is the fact that it freezes sometimes when I stop typing, or when I use the side icon to move quickly through documents. I don’t know what it is, but it’ll just freeze and I end up having to exit the Doc and reentering it. This is minor though, and it usually only goes as far as that, and it still saves what I wrote before the freeze. I’d still like this to be fixed though so I don’t have to constantly do this; it does get annoying and even infuriating when I have to do it dozens of times over a few hours.
Syncing
by madhornytoad on 2017/09/19 07:43
Most of the apps or products that Google has created have been pretty lame, poorly executed or timed and they completely lack the ability to work with the people that use them - some call it customer service - making them just a big lumbering beast riding the wave of success that a search monopoly brought them. The exceptions are Gmail and in my opinion the GSuite of apps. No other company has even come close to having collaborative functionality the way Google has done it. Revisioning, recovery, instantaneous changes and lo and behold I can see when someone is working on a doc at the same time as me. So 5 stars for Google Docs. Guess having all those priceless Stanford degrees sitting around will occasionally produce something awesome.

Ok, i have switched most of my stuff to google docs because on a computer it works wonderful. But this app! It gets slower and more cumbersome to use every time i pull it up. I tap on something and but wow it’s 2 minutes before i get a response. It’s not the internet speed. My husband games and we stream video all the time. Frustrating. But now that all my shared docs are there, I feel stuck.

I like that it has different templates and lots of storage. There is file sharing and you could attach papers as a file and send them through email for work and other things. It is very similar to Microsoft Word, only editing with the space bar does not indent speedily. It is a very excellent platform though. You have to have a Google Account to use it, and I have written many papers in Google Docs. So much fun. Five Stars.
So good 😃😃😃

new feature?
by baby666222 on 2019/06/21 20:25
there’s a new feature that underlines text in blue. i guess it’s to correct grammar mistakes? anyway, it works terribly and it’s always underlining pieces of text that are actually grammatically correct. it’s super annoying, and i can’t get rid of the underlines without ruining the flow of my sentences with corrections that the text doesn’t even need. often, the suggested corrections will make a sentence that is already grammatically correct, incorrect!

Great for free time, but...
by MerrowWaterFire on 2019/06/20 08:13
I am going into 8th grade. So let’s be real, I use google docs a lot for essays on my school computer and such. But I also use it for writing short stories in my free time. When I want to look through my story and just see if there are plot holes or things that don’t make sense, two things happen that really annoy me. 1: the keyboard opens up while I’m scrolling. I just don’t like that it does that randomly to me when I’m nowhere near the button to pull it up. And 2: it starts lagging for me when there’s a part that I just finished on my laptop or something. It also lags a lot for me when I type maybe 100 words or so. But otherwise the app is perfect for when I think of a story idea while riding the bus home or when I can’t get to my personal laptop. Thanks!

Limited formatting options
by Mrs & Mrs Bickerson on 2019/06/18 21:57
I like the portability and share-ability of Google Docs but the options for formatting are super barebones. Maybe that’s what they were going for but if I need something that has even a touch of creativity, I need to use MS Word or Pages.

by sludge on 2019/06/17 23:32

Mostly love this app. I use it to write everything and it’s great, but at random points it closes me out of the app and I have to reopen the app and find where I was in the document I was editing. Everything is usually saved, but it’s annoying having this happen repetitively.

by Smyponies on 2019/06/16 14:26
I use docs to write sometimes, but a major issue I have is that the word formatting is completely messed up. I don’t know if it’s just my device, but sometimes words that are a space apart are completely smashed together, and sometimes characters that are together are completely separated. It’s not way too distracting, though, but I prefer using it on a desktop.

Evidently files are stored in an unusual way. When I got a new iPad some of my files in Documents were recoverable... and a lot weren’t. It didn’t occur to me to somehow record what I had so I have no idea what I’m missing until I look for it. My new iPad was defective and so I had to restore from backup again and lost more. I think I need to find a more reliable app.

Would love 5 stars but won’t stop crashing
by Karenina C. on 2019/06/14 13:40
The idea of its functionality warrants five stars, but every time I start making changesto a four-page document, I get about two minutes in and the app completely crashes. Doesn’t save the work. Just makes me frustrated. Not great, guys.
Awesome app!!!

Google only cares about their own devices
by @davessuccess on 2019/06/11 14:58
This app is broken. What I mean by that is there is nowhere near the freedom that you have on DEST top which is unfortunate. We’ve been so used to saying that’s how it is that we stop demanding for better quality. Using Google Docs versus pages some of the features for iOS are not available thank goodness safari will be having full desktop website soon. Google step up your game and have your brand say no matter where you use our services they are the best.

by SoftShoulder on 2018/07/27 06:44
I’ve moved completely to Docs. Being a writer, I used to use Word, as many do; because it’s the industry standard. But I had more than one computer and phone die on me, taking my work with them. It’s devastating to see weeks and months, even years of your intellectual investment disappear with little hope of resurrection. So I have these dead computers I hold onto like they are in a cryogenic state and someday a cure will be found for them. Google Docs hasn’t cured my computers past, but they have given us all a vaccine that protects our work from certain death. By using this program, I am able to work anywhere, with my phone or laptop, somebody else’s computer, and with others on line if I want to collaborate or need editing. This freedom allows for amazing capabilities and dynamism for writers everywhere. The flow is smooth, it updates your and saves continuously, making obsolete the mantra “Remember to save your work often,” which is kinda hard to accept, honestly. The editing capabilities and tools are great, and it’s so initiative it feels like an Apple product. As a lifelong Apple devotee, I have been impressed over and over again, causing some strange irritation from past prejudice that keeps slipping away the more I use it. So if you’ve never heard of Docs and have been on the fence, I hope this settles your hesitation. It’s great. It really is.
Better for Personal Use
by NoEyesJess on 2019/05/05 19:41
I’ve been a longtime user of Google Docs—around three or four years—and it’s been great for storing important documents. I’ve also used it a lot for jotting down ideas, writing creative stories, and other personal uses. I feel that these are what the app is best for. I’ve tried to use it several times for academic essays, and the current format does not support certain basic functions, especially with indentation, adding page numbers in MLA or APA, and so on. The spell check for Google Docs is also flawed, and frequently marks everyday words as misspelled, and then other words not in the regular dictionary as perfectly correct. The syncing is also kind of finicky sometimes, and you can lose work or have to restart the app multiple times in one sitting, if you’re somewhere that there is no ideal connection. So if you’re a student or a professional, you are also going to want Microsoft Word, which has more features and is easier to use. However, the syncing generally works very well, and I love being able to back up all my documents. The aesthetic appearance of the documents are also very appealing, and most of the basic writing functions are easy to access. Keyboard shortcuts still work, and those shortcuts match to whichever model of computer you are using, so you don’t have to learn anything terribly new to use the app competently. It’s super easy to add other contributors, and to restrict privacy/use settings. All in all it has served me very ell.
Highly recommended, but definitely room for improvement
by Silvercove on 2018/08/06 06:43
Google Docs is very, very useful as a whole, providing services that allow seamless collaboration and that solve many past horrors of word-processors (like the classic “I didn’t save my doc and now it’s gone foreverrrrr!!”). As great as it is on desktop, I personally found the transfer to mobile devices a little, well, less great. It’s obviously difficult to find an intuitive way to lay out all the functions of Docs on desktop onto a smaller screen, but it’s honestly such a huge hassle navigating comments and suggestions, even when I’m on my iPad. It’s also kind of annoying that I can’t zoom out more on a doc—basically, once the width of the page fills the screen, I can no longer zoom out. This doesn’t sound like a huge deal, but it makes for a lot of tedious scrolling when an already long document has relatively large text. Additionally, there are these small annoying glitches that occasionally occur. For example, when I was editing a doc, I kept trying to delete a space, but it would always delete the space and the letter behind it. I tried over and over again to no avail... sigh.... It also seems to me that Docs can get kind of slow? I’m on a new device, so the hardware should be working fine, but there’s a huge lag when I’m trying to type in the app. Other than these few problems, everything else has been working fine and going smoothly.
Fantastic with some suggestions
by JEMmusy on 2018/09/17 21:03
I love the way docs works because it saves your data constantly and it doesn’t glitch on you and it provides you with so many ways to type notes for school, writing, and much more. I do have some suggestions to make the work flow for taking notes easier though. When it comes to fonts, there are specific ones I like to use for notes, but it becomes a pain to have to go back and switch it to the font you like instead of the default Ariel. The same goes for the headings and other text variations. They default to Ariel instead of the font that you were using before hand. Another suggestion I have is to make a keyboard short cut for the horizontal line. That would make dividing sections of writing way easier. The last suggestion I have is to also make a key board short cut for the list option styles. For example, I don’t like using the default dot style for the list. I like using the star one because it makes the list more interesting to look at. So instead of defaulting to the dot style it could default to the style of list that you were using before hand. For example, I would be using the star style of list and then I would section that list off with a horizontal line and then begin to start a new list that would then default to the star style. In general, maybe you guys could make google docs more customizable or at least have let it have the option to be more customizable with custom keyboard commands for different things.
Great, except...
by ivd37950 on 2018/06/18 06:51
Like most people of Generation Z, the later years of my education (8th grade-present) have greatly benefited from using Google applications such as Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Google Docs’s amazing accessibility, collaboration tools, storage, and auto-save have always been what’s made it better than competing office tools. The app itself is great, and once you get the hand of using it on a hand held device, it makes working from almost anywhere possible. I’ve found myself using these Google applications for more than just essays and presentations now a days, as I begin to need work resumés and finance budgets. So really, Docs (and other Google applications) are great! Except, I’ve encountered an issue when using this Docs app. Now, this could be because of several reasons, however, I’ve found that after prolonged used, when typing, the keyboard begins to lag a bunch, making working on documents so frustrating. At first I thought that the keyboard could be lagging because my iPad might’ve over heated? But, the keyboard has lagged even when the iPad doesn’t feel warm. I’m not sure if internet connection might have something to do with it, but my Wifi is pretty strong, and I rarely encounter issues with it. That’s my only complaint, but other than that I really do love the app.
Love Google docs
by Keltonisayapperdog on 2018/02/19 11:14
I absolutely love google docs, especially since I’m in college and it saves your work automatically when your up at 2:00am trying to finish an essay that is due that same day and you fall asleep. There probably is away to do this, but if not I wish there would be away to categorize documents into different folders for different projects or classes and or poor year. I think this would be very helpful for me since one day I would love to show my kids that hard work does pay off. The slide shows are excellent and great for presenting history projects to make them at least semi fun and very easy to use once you learn to switch over from PowerPoint... but the basic outline I personally feel is similar yet differently. The docs were it is like Microsoft Word is very identical just a few extra perks of not having to save, having all of your work in one place, and very easy usage. The only reason for a 4 star was the fact is that if it doesn’t have the filing system “ I would be surprised if it didn’t” again probably haven’t figured it out, but have been using this program since 2015 at-least so I think I would have found it, but things fly over everybody's head sometimes “am I right or am I right?”
Great for writing, but hard to insert equations
by EngineeringUndergrad on 2018/11/29 04:22
Google’s Docs is fantastic! It is nice to have your document constantly backed up without hassle. I have grown to prefer using this app over Microsoft’s Word and Apple’s Pages. I use this app mostly on an iPad and keyboard. One thing that stand out for google docs over the other word processing apps is its ease to format using keyboard shortcuts. In iOS this is HUGE!!! The ability to use keyboard shortcuts drastically improves productivity when working in a touch based operating system! With that being said, I cannot do all my work on this app. I can type up most of my documents using this app, but I need to switch to a different device to do some finishing touches before publishing my documents. For example, it would be nice to change a documents margin’s while using this app. It also would be nice to insert equations using this app. As it stands, those features remain on the web based version of docs and not on the iOS version. That being said, google docs is my go to app for any word processing on an iOS device. It is clear the team at google have put a lot of work into developing this app, perhaps even more than its competitors.
Excellent Work!
by BlitzyWolf on 2017/12/07 15:08
I’ve used Google Docs for quite some time now. Though I only used the computer version, because I didn’t have a phone or know the Google Docs app existed. So, when I found out about this, I got it immediately! It was, and still is an amazing tool for my everyday life. The only issues I have with this, is that when your document contains too much information/pages, you could probably type six sentences before it finished putting down the first one.. Copying and pasting is quite difficult, and for some reason, it doesn’t want me to copy the first quotation marks of a sentence. I much prefer using the computer with Google Docs over the mobile version, because I can type much faster with the computer. That’s just my opinion, however! With the computer, Google Docs basically isn’t an option, due to Wi-Fi and other complications. So having it on my phone is amazing. Despite some minor flaws, such as holding down backspace and watching it delete excessive amounts of stuff... this is an excellent app! If you’re looking for a free, easy way to access your documents wherever you go, then I strongly believe this app is for you!
Google Docs is OK but painful on iPad
by Teliantes on 2017/10/30 07:12
I think if I used an external keyboard it might be better, but formatting and getting spreadsheets to function like excel is really not an option. I find that trying to select text to cut and paste or copy or for formatting font size or color is very frustrating. You have to grab and roll your finger just right or you select too much. Also, when backspacing, use caution. I couldn't stop it from deleting far more than i wanted. Make sure you select what you want to delete instead of relying on bkspc to stop when you want it to. I am happy I found a way to do my budget on my iPad since my laptop is tedious to start up just to work on my finances, but i do wish it wasn't so painful to toggle into edit mode. Google should talk to more end users, and I am also not a fan of the company being that I have a 35 yr Career in Technology and I am FEMALE...so I am sure they will wake up and come into the 21st century soon with their treatment of women, and get more women managing projects and holding positions of power. Their tolerance for misogyny is incredibly sickening. I wish someone from a more progressive company would invent a better alternative since I don't trust or like Google.
Good for the most part
by asy4239 on 2017/11/16 17:32
Google docs is a fantastic website to use to get work done. It auto saves, allows collaboration, and has so many other features. The app, however, lags so much when typing that you can type a sentence or phrase and reasonably expect to wait another 10+ seconds before it finishes typing. And this is on a doc with only one person on it. Imagine the frustration when multiple people are on it! And if you think it’s done typing and go to fix an error earlier in the sentence, it will continue typing in the middle of the sentence (even though you finished typing several seconds prior). Another problem with it is the inability to copy and paste MLA citations in it. If I’m working on an essay and need to make a bibliography, I’ll copy the formatted citation from an online citation maker, paste it into google docs, then have to manually readjust the spacing to make it correct. While you can just paste it into Word and go, you can’t with google docs, which is frustrating, especially when you’ve got 15 sources to format manually. (This is a problem with the website on a computer, too.)
I ❤️ Google Docs but...
by Jaquelin2.0 on 2019/02/21 00:46
Well, honestly, Google Docs is AMAZING! I love all the features and it just has this very nice atmosphere and it’s just...AWESOME!!! But there is just ONE little problem. You see, before I had an iPhone, I had an LG phone. Specifically, the LG Fortune. And when I had that phone, you could put emojis in the text. But NOW I can’t even add an emoji! I bet you’re thinking this is useless, but what about when I’m writing a story or something? Like for example, I add a texting part to my story. Then, I do it like someone adds an emoji to their text. It WOULDN’T appear! It kinda get’s me a little disappointed because it ruins the whole book. I don’t care if whoever’s reading this thinks I’m dumb or stupid, but hey! I’m saying MY opinion! Isn’t that what a review is for? To share your opinion about a thing (in this case, an app)? Anyway, I just think that Google Inc. should consider this and improve it or fix it. But overall, Google Docs is an extraordinary app that I recommend to everyone. 😄
Great and all, a lifesaver, but might need some adjustments
by MethrionDiamond on 2018/06/21 20:39
So, my life is very packed and full, and every time I want to write something, I usually use google docs. It makes life so much easier that I don’t have to use my laptop to write when I have this great mobile app. The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars is because there are more functions on the computer version than there are on the app. For example, on computers you can indent and such. However, I can’t indent on the app. Also, I love it, but I wish there would be an easier way to sort everything, like a folder or something. There probably already is something like this, or I just didn’t find it yet. Compared to Microsoft word, google docs is a worthy competitor. Microsoft has more functions, but google docs are free and Microsoft costs.. I don’t even know. I wish they would add a way to insert charts and text boxes onto a doc. However, compared to word, I like it better because you can collaborate/work with friends while on Microsoft word, it is much harder. I like google docs.
50/50
by Dragoncityplayermelissa^-^ on 2017/10/14 21:35
I’ve been using google docs for 3 years now. Personally, I prefer the laptop as it is easier to type on, and type much more freely. But, on my laptop, accessing google docs, contains needing WiFi/service to type on / loading chrome or a web browser. By that, it’s not portable, or able to use on the go. I’ve used google docs on my iPad before, and I type pretty OK on my iPad, but not nearly as fast on my laptop. But you can use it on the go-to, but without WiFi. I’m pretty sure there isn’t the great ‘add-ons’ like the ones on computer, or laptop. Google docs, is a free, accessible great essential for any student of all ages. It’s great, it’s literally like word, but you don’t have to pay an expensive budget for it. Docs is just perfect for anyone, and it’s so great. Literally, they’re add on(s) for people who also need it. Highly recommend, all though it’s worldwide to schools, throughout everywhere. Google docs will always be a great essential.
Highly recommend, just a few small complaints.
by AwkwardMusicLover on 2018/11/08 17:49
I honestly prefer google docs over Microsoft Word, and I’ve used docs for many years now and I loved it. I find it a lot easier to get through essays and other journaling much faster with docs because of easy access to different settings. Only complaint (for both desktop and mobile) is a few glitches it has. I mainly use docs on my laptop, and I’ve noticed a lot of the time when I first open a new document, it’s very slow trying to load and will sometimes completely stop working after typing a few words. Another thing, it’s a little frustrating not being able to edit the margin sizes unless you search “margins” in the Help tab. It would be much more convenient if there was a Page Setup tab. Those are small and not super important complaints, but I’m all about convenience and easy organizations!
Perfect for Educators
by Your Glamologist on 2019/04/22 17:38
I love google docs for so many reasons . I can work on a document from anywhere around the world and from any device . It’s so convenient and allows me that flexibility that I don’t have in Microsoft Word. And to me Google is amazing because they still understand the need for Microsoft Word so they give you an option to save your files as a Microsoft Word document. But the real reason why I love Google Docs so much is because I am an educator and I have been using Google Docs as my whiteboard the same as I have in class. I share the document with my students. They can click on links for assignments. I can share notes with them and they can reply back to me. I also can comment on their work that they create in Google Docs and help them outside of school. Google docs makes my life as he cosmetology educator much easier. Thanks So much Google your so smart! The GlamBoss The Siobhan Nicole
How I feel about Google docs
by Kelsey Rush on 2017/10/24 00:42
Personally I use Google docs for just about everything and anything or use it for school things so if I need to write a paper I tend to use this more than Word, or if I am like doing pictures for like a slide or something like that and I want to see which ones I like more where I just want to save them on my computer I don’t tend to save them to my computer I tend to put them on a Google doc and just transfer them over to slide. I really do recommend Google docs for kids or adults who are in middle school high school and even college I know my parents they use Google docs when they were in college and they’re 40 something and they went to college and they were like 35 but they use Google Docs a lot too and yes Word has some features that Google doc doesn't however, Google doc has stencil type things for Google slides and it helps a lot.
Retiree road trip journaling with ease
by Roadtripretiree on 2017/10/02 13:45
For my needs, this app is 5 stars, although I haven't used it for documents that I want to edit or that are for others to assess. A year ago I bought an IPad mini, a keyboard case that fits my hands perfectly, and have now used gdocs on several trips. I use it for to do lists, packing lists, and for journaling along the way. I type faster and more clearly than I write and also flow more freely when I'm typing. On our current trip I experimented, opening up the journal while out of wi fi--and it worked! I wrote using my Iphone, then my Ipad, and when I was in wifi, they synched--wonderful! What I wish--that I could be confident that any documents I do want to share with folks who don't have gdocs would work as attachments that everyone could open. I'm not sure about that, so for those documents I still use Microsoft Word.
Not Quite Adequate — Especially for Real-Time Collaboration
by MTBKit on 2017/12/21 14:54
Do you want to type stuff into a Google Doc that other people can read later? This is fine. Do you want to edit documents other people have created? This will do it. Want to do that collaboratively while several of you are sitting around a table? Put away your iPad and go get a laptop. This app has significant deficiencies. Suggestions and comments are entirely divorced from their location in the document. Other features are similarly hobbled. The enormous list of “Recent” documents is useless. Creating a new document doesn’t even put it at the top of the list. That new document goes right at the root of your Drive, by the way, with no option to create it exactly where you want it. The only way to keep things organized is through a long series of taps to move your new document to the desired location. The modal Edit/View interface is enormously frustrating. I don’t really like using Google Docs on a traditional computer. Using it on an iPad is worse.
Great! But one problem...
by Graysonlover on 2018/01/05 08:36
Hey I love the app. I really do. It’s probably one of my most used apps on my phone. But I have a slight problem. I think the most recent update. But my Docs app closes too often/ soon. I tend to use the app and then switch to reply to a message or post something. It’s a pretty quick transaction. And then when I come back to docs I'm taking out onto the main screen. It’s honestly very annoying. The time it takes to load the page I was just on is longer too. And it happens EVERY TIME I leave. Is there a way to fix this? There was a time when it would stay exactly where I was after being inactive for hours! And now it leaves in a matter of seconds. Please change this. I’d like to be able to use other features on my phone while still being able to get back to my docs in a timely manner.
Occasionally Glitchy but Otherwise Great
by manquedamour on 2018/01/22 15:10
Generally the Google Docs app works pretty well. I only use it for writing and making minor edits to class notes on my phone. But often I find when I’m typing that the screen will jump around. It also doesn’t play nice with Apple’s autocorrect at times. But the accessibility across devices is great. I can be editing or typing on my phone, and immediately switch to my computer and it updates in real time. This is also helpful for class projects, wherein I can be working with a group and we will all edit in real time and work on the same project, whether it’s an essay, brainstorming, or on the other google groups, the Slides app for PowerPoints. My biggest complaint over everything is just that each part of the google drive docket comes as a separate app. Docs is separate from Slides is separate from Spreadsheets is separate from plain ole Google Drive.
Great for On The Go Lifestyle
by 9838509 on 2017/11/09 15:00
Kid you not, I'm a 21 unit university student, working full time this semester. Having this app on my iPhone has saved my grades, as I don't have to carry my macbook around to finish up my papers and such. I just write a paragraph or two during my lunch hour, or during a bathroom break (don't kid yourself that you don't do it too lol), or whenever I have a few minutes to spare, and by the end of the day, I've already finished up my paper(s) while I was running around at work, doing errands, etc. I saw Thor in theaters with a friend of mine and decided to write whatever I could for an industrial health course I'm taking in that one sitting during the previews. I was able to get half of my paper done right before Thor began! When I got home, I only had to spend an extra 15 minutes on it, then I turned it in. Great use of time! I love this app!
The best for anything!
by Marshmellow Pumkin on 2018/05/08 00:58
Google Docs has been the most useful app for me to be able to create multiple pages of Stories, Characters, Poems, and more! This is often the go to app for schools. It’s very simple to be able to share it to others like teachers or other students for projects, and that’s not the only limit since I use it when sharing with friends. I use this both in the computer and with my iPad. With google doc just logging in to your account is very quick and it holds all your data for you so you don’t need to worry which is a great relieve! I hope that this app stays on forever because I won’t be able to find another app like this, being free as well. If there were any recommendations I also like Google Slides although it’s a bit harder to use on the go. Sincerely, Google Doc User.
Changed my mind
by NanaPaula on 2018/08/04 20:45
I enjoy having this app. I can edit my documents, change fonts, etc. I can do a page set up, so I know how it will print. I like that I can use on OS and IOS. It all backs up. It all syncs. What I DO NOT LIKE, is it duplicates itself. It is in Google Drive, iCloud Drive, and if you make a folder. I took notes on my Spanish lessons. I have different documents for different lessons. 1. It moves the document is you edit, open etc. Depending on what you pick. However, if you want all the docs to stay in same order after editing it, it will not. You can put by alphabet, but it still moves docs around. I would like the option of them staying in the place I put them and if I want to move...be able to drag. 2. If you create a doc, it automatically goes to their Drive app if you have that app. So, I am deleting. I do not want on multiple places. 3. If you make a file folder on GOOGLE DOCS, it does not move doc to file folder, it just duplicates it. Again, I would like to be able to send to separate file folders and then delete from GOOGLE DOC, DRIVE, or wherever, and they stay in the file folder; the choice of keeping or deleting on any app and not loosing on the other. Or keep in one of other doc holders and delete from others. This is on the apps that file share. Nice to be able to send to another app or file, but should be able to delete from one without loosing from the other.
Greatest thing about Docs
by Lorimcco on 2018/11/29 19:02
The thing I like best about Google Docs is its use over time. I know a Google Engineer and he clued me in on this one. We are part of a larger, mostly volunteer organization. It’s been around for a while, and many of the documents from 20 years ago, done with other word processing programs, are not find-able, but when we do find them they are no longer readable with current software. Google docs will not have either of those problems—as long as Google goes on the Docs will be available and readable. The problem of incompatibility of software, not just between users but also over time, goes away. In so many other ways Google Docs is vastly improved over the early versions. And I really like that both Docs and Sheets are available on all devices.
great computer version, but...
by Marshmellow Kittycorn on 2019/05/24 02:33
Google Docs is amazing tool for school, and a great app for writing. You can connect with friends, editors, and co-authors on the same document, and the layout is beautiful. Although, the app is pretty limited and does not provide the full experience of Google Docs. I would recommend this over competing brands, such as Word, but the grammar and spelling check doesn’t work very well. Also, a great addition would be to add folders to put the Docs in. As a clean-freak, it’s a bit stressful having a hundred different documents floating around with no way to group the ones for school and the ones for stories. They have this feature in Drive, but it doesn’t translate over to Docs. But overall, Docs is hands down the greatest word processor I’ve ever used! With some little tweaks in the future, this will be the perfect word processor for professional and personal use! -leah
Google Docs is a My Dream Come True
by Chelsrg91 on 2018/02/22 11:24
My personal computer is a Mac and I use it a LOT for work. At work our computers are all HP. For years I have spent countless hours trying to convert documents so that they are readable on each device, wasting precious time. I also use notes on my phone a lot and then always have to copy, paste to an email, send to my computer, paste to a word document on my computer, etc... thus a long process. With google docs, i can work on the same project from my phone, personal computer, work computer, tablet, heck anyone’s device because it is all saved and it is all right in front of me! I agree with another review that the option for folders would be nice, but I’m seriously just so happy to be able to work on all projects in the same place!
Good, but pls optimize this app for more heavy usage
by soni.chan on 2019/02/01 05:05
While this app is a great substitute for the PC version of Docs, its not fully optimized for IOS or apps. Its nice if you’re quickly pulling up a document to type something up that’s last minute or doesn’t require a lot of time or presentation, but for people who use the app heavily, like on the iPad Pro, it’s frustrating. For one, the Office-Docs compatibility format doesn’t save, which means that in order to print you have to make a billion copies on order for it to save in an edited, print ready format, which even then doesn’t work. Another frustrating feature is that multiple documents can’t be opened and viewed at the same time, which should be possible for iPad Pro split screen viewing but unfortunately is not and leads to annoying back and forth flipping. Overall, good app if wanting to make last minute tweaks, but for heavy users, this app needs some work.
A game changer!! I Love It!!
by Picture Obsessed Mom of 3 on 2019/05/28 11:10
Google docs is amazing and is a real game changer! I use it for all different things- to keep track of notes to myself, to type up things I want to print later, to have a place to cut and paste things. I also have used it very successfully to share documents with others, individuals or groups/committees, so that multiple people can add to or edit a document. This came in hugely helpful when I chaired a charity event last year. Everything my committee needed was on Google Docs, so we were all on the same page and very organized. I also appreciate updates that have been made, such as better formatting options. All in all I have found it extremely useful and helpful and have not had any problems with it. Two thumbs up 👍🏻👍🏻
Great App, but Needs More Functionality
by AAThompson02 on 2019/05/01 16:44
The Google docs is very limiting as a power user on the iPad. I just recently upgraded to the iPad Pro and was hoping to use it as a replacement for my MacBook since the majority of the things that I do are either Google related or for school which works fine online. I wouldn’t say that the Google Docs iPad app is horrible, however, at times I find it becomes laggy which makes it difficult, and it would be very useful if I had the capability to open multiple docs side by side. Most of the functionality of Google Docs is available on the iPad app, however, multitasking is very limiting as well as performance at times. I would love to see the kinks worked out because Google Docs is so awesome. It’d be great to have the best of both worlds. I often find myself going back to my MacBook for those capabilities and think there’s so much more potential for the app on iPad.
Editing/Commenting a Nightmare!!
by ellewoodsjd on 2019/03/11 08:14
I’m a hobby artist, so I recently decided to ditch my personal laptop in favor an an iPad and iPencil (I still have a work laptop). The Google Docs App, though, has made this transition incredibly difficult! First, Google blocks access to the browser version of Google Docs if you are using an iPad. Nevermind that the screen is the same size as my old MacBook. Nevermind that I have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. The Google Docs app is my ONLY option for accessing google docs from my iPad. And unfortunately, the App is not an adequate replacement. The toolbar is pared down, and much harder to navigate. It took me forever to figure out how to change the setting for link-sharing, so that anyone with the link could edit. And the “suggest changes” function is incredibly clunky. The changes all show up as “hidden suggestions” or “hidden comments”, and the person viewing them has to laboriously click every individual suggestion and “view suggestion.” It’s also very difficult to do anything other than “accept” or “reject” once you have found a suggestion. If the suggestion requires more nuanced editing, forget it! Overall, the app works in a bind, but it is not a very intuitive app and it is a very inferior product to the browser version! Please consider a redesign Google, or at the very least allowing the browser version to be accessed in-browser on an iPad!
Without google docs I would be a mess!!
by Henises on 2019/05/06 03:31
I hope you take this review into consideration because I’m a retire military surgeon!! And a freelance writer as well as Forensic Anthropologist. I consider myself very OCD as far as organising my life and I can tell you that without google docs, I can find another way to do my work, however, with google docs everything I do write, and organise, etc., is pretty delightful to find everything I need on one app. I cannot but encourage this application to anyone who needs to organise their life, work, at home, etc. It’s very important what every human do to help others and in order to do so, I rely on Google Docs tremendously. I appreciate how easy it is to work with it and how everything follows into a pattern once you get used to utilise it. Thanks google Dr. Brennan S.
Great alternative to Apple Notes app
by HelpGiveThanks on 2019/04/04 15:51
The most awesome thing about these smart phones is the ability to collaborate at a distance on documents using things like the checklist feature. Unfortunately, Apple’s Note app only works on iPhones 😔. Google Docs is a wonderful alternative allowing colleagues to collaborate with any device. I would give the Google Docs app the fifth star if it had a real checklist bullet that I could check with my finger on a smart phone screen. (Of course, it probably has earned the fifth star already because 1) unlike Apple’s Note app, Google docs keep track of who checks off which items in a checklist, (albeit using the check icon ✅ in our group), and 2) because notes can be kept in a sub, of a sub, of a sub folder 📁 allowing for superior organization of notes for professional and academic work groups.
CRASHES WITH NEW IOS 11 UPDATE!
by LollaBells on 2017/09/25 14:18
I use google docs all the time, so I’m really hoping you guys fix the bug that won’t allow us to open docs once we update to IOS 11. I updated on my IPad Pro can’t open docs, I didn’t update on my iPhone 6s yet, I can open docs fine like normal.. please fix this or I’m going to have to uninstall you. Most every other app has already fixed their issues with the new 11 update.. I waited a few days to see if google would update and so far, well your behind everyone else. Now I can’t use my IPad when I need to the most, but am inconvenienced and have to use my phone. If people have 2 devices I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ONLY UPDATING ONE AT FIRST ! Because some haven’t fixed bugs, and you won’t be able to use their app, not with this update. It really stinks for those that depend on services using one device. But hopefully a better product will be replacing google soon anyway.
Fix this
by InnocentLlama32 on 2017/09/24 21:18
I always use this app as my go-to for schoolwork, but there are so many issues. For one, when I try to select a few certain words, it either selects the whole row and the one below it and it won’t let me unselect it, or it selects one letter and won’t move. And when I am making a list like: 1. (Words) 2. (Words) And so on, when I try to return down to start an example, it creates a 3 and then I return again and it disappears. I write my new thought and type 3. And then click the space bar and it doesn’t do anything. I spacebar the 3. up to where the rest are so it looks clean, and when it starts a new sentence behind the list, I can’t space it up like the rest. The spacebar does nothing. I have to create white text to move it up. And when I tab on those sentences trying to align them, it tabs over the sentence above the one I am on and when I click the delete to undo the tab, it moves up again and deletes the last letter on that section. It is just so frustrating. Please fix these.
Something’s up with my app
by comos tas? on 2018/12/06 04:02
I’ve been using google docs a lot over my past school years because it’s such a reliable source to work on with your classmates on projects and classwork assigned to you by your teacher on google classroom. It works fine on the computer, but the app refuses to let me sign into google docs because of an apparent “device policy alert”. I don’t get this: i’ve updated my google docs app to the latest version, my iphone to the latest version and even tried restarting my phone and deleting and re-downloading the app. Nothing seems to work. It used to be so helpful to have this app on my phone so even if I'm miles away from the nearest computer, I could work on my schoolwork. But now this device policy alert removes my ability to work on it at all. I hope this is just a bug or glitch, or the app comes out with a new update deleting this blockage.
App is great, but I’m having a problem...
by .ixabel. on 2019/05/11 01:27
Okay, I’ve been using Google Docs for a while now. It’s amazing, reliable, and easy to use. I use it for school and for personal use. But lately I’ve been having trouble with it, and I think I might be the only one? I don’t know, but it’s kind of weird. For some odd reason, my Google Docs (on my iPad) has been really frustrating lately—the italics font doesn’t work. I have to delete Google Docs every time for it to work, but then when I leave the app, and try typing in italics, I’m right back at square one. I honestly don’t know what the problem is, but I think it might have to do with the case I have on my iPad. It’s like a regular case, but has a keyboard attached, making it look like a laptop. I’m not sure what it is, though, and I’d really appreciate it if I could get some help. Thanks!
A few improvements and it’ll be just what I need
by Zoe 401 on 2018/05/14 02:03
Don’t get me wrong, Google Docs is pretty cool. But there are just a few errors that make it almost unuseable and having me search for an alternative. Being blind, I use voiceover to navigate and use my iPad and iPhone 6. And for the most part, google docs works great with said screen reader. It lets you know what formatting you have in place and navigating tables is a breeze. But that stupid key echo. Whenever I type, it says each and every character even though i set it to only repeat words. Not to mention the fact that whenever I delete a character, instead of saying the character in a low pitch (like it’s suppose to) it says ‘selection deleted. Which makes it very hard to keep track of how much I’ve deleted. Also it doesn’t speak spaces when I use the arrow keys on my keyboard to move the cursor but that’s not as big an issue as the ones mentioned above. One more thing, I like to type my documents and then import them to scrivener, but there doesn’t seem to be a simple way to do this. Instead of having the traditional share window show up there’s this weird menu about formats and stuff? I don’t even know. But maybe I don’t know how to do it maybe there is a way. Thanks for reading and I hope you take my suggestions into consideration.
Been using for awhile now.
by Betsu-nee on 2018/03/13 03:01
Okay, so a few years back a dear friend showed my docs on my computer. We co-write (rp) together, and it gives a great place to do that since you can share with anyone else using docs. The grammar and spelling check is really nice, and the auto save feature is great! The reason the app gets four and not five stars is because the phone app itself has issues with larger docs(like 30 pages, I think) and won’t load well after that point. I understand why though, and am not actually bothered by it too much since I still have a computer, but I do have to notice which documents ARE that large, because it’ll sometimes it freezes up my phone(needing a restart). The phone app is also a bit more complicated to navigate than the computer version, but it is easy enough.
Great for a basic college student.
by TheSailorette on 2017/11/25 19:04
I am a college student and I am constantly between classes trying to pull out my tablet to work on my papers for different classes. I started using Docs in general because then I could bounce between my tablet at school and my desk top at home. But when I discovered this app it made life so much easier because I'm always on my phone too! I am able to write my papers then go to my tablet or desk top to ensure it is formatted right (I am just not tech savvy with this app) and then I can save a word form of the paper and turn it in online. All the google apps like Google slides, forms, etc are amazing to use and do what you need. I don't know how to do spread sheets or anything fancy but it gets me by with ease when it comes to basic papers!
LOVE IT
by 100Rainbows on 2018/10/13 21:51
I really like Google Docs because of how convenient it is! Say you’re in a car with somebody and you forgot to type the ending to a school project in your account, well you can just use Google Docs and get it done! You don’t know HOW MANY TIMES THIS APP HAS COME IN HANDY. Especially because I only have my device right now to access my account. One thing though, I really wish that it wasn’t so confusing. I’ve had this app for a long time and I STILL can’t figure out if you can share a document or if you can’t! And if you CAN share a document, HOW? Where’s the share button?? HELP! But I find it kinda weird how everything kind of tends to be... EVERYWHERE. To me, I find it really hard to find some things I need at the moment. Like tools for changing the font, or font size. But other than that ONE MINOR PROBLEM, I LOVE THIS APP!!!!!
This app is my saving grace
by ggyivfrryuuhsas on 2018/02/01 07:55
I’ve had so many short stories, novellas, and full novels saved by Google Docs. When my computer crashed and had to be wiped (since got a new one, but the loss was felt!), I was terrified I’d potentially lost over ten years of writing. I’d switched to Docs about a month prior and hadn’t realized it was all still there until I opened the app on my phone and saw everything was right there. It was a huge relief. My only issue with the mobile app is that it sometimes lags as I’m typing, and I can be three sentences ahead before it finally begins to stutter out the first. It’s so frustrating, especially when I see tons of typos and have to rewrite it all. I’d thought it was my old iPhone 4, but it’s the same with the iPhone 8 now too.
Use This... Stories, Schoolwork, etc.!
by Alyson 💕 on 2017/10/22 21:33
I write stories, and I aspire to be an author or a language arts teacher when I’m older. In school, I can’t write many fictional stories, mostly personal narratives, but I’m quite honestly running low on stories about myself and can’t help the fact that all of my stories turn even the slightest fictional. We used this in class for personal narratives, and once in fourth grade something for Father’s Day. I went home after the first day of using this and started writing out my fictional stories from notebooks. I spent hours and hours writing and writing. On google docs. See, even this is a little fictional, because I only spent one hour. Haha, sorry. But the next day, I did it again! And everyday since. Get this app!
So, it’s not terrible...
by Alex K 8 on 2018/08/26 20:19
Google Docs is ok, not great, not terrible. My main problem is docs with pictures in them. On a computer, the document is fine, no problems with the pictures, with the app, it is a huge problem. After finishing the doc with pictures on my Mac, I opened the same doc, expecting everything to be in the same place. Boy was I wrong. Pictures were scattered across the document in places where I did not put them at all. Pictures that I had set for the text to wrap around broke up the entire text. Pictures I had set next to each other were separated, rendering them moot. I understand that it is difficult to make every feature on the computer Google Docs available on the app, but for an iPad, at least the pictures should stay where I put them. Please fix if by some slim chance someone from Google is reading this.
Unable to switch IME when using physical keyboard
by llsqc on 2018/10/28 08:09
My device is iPad Pro 10.2” with iOS 12. On large screens MS Word requires 365 subscription so I turned to Google Docs, which feels perfect on PC. But I was unable to switch between Chinese Shuangpin and English by pressing Ctrl-Space or Caps on my BT keyboard K480. It works when on-screen keyboard is shown, but for productivity I have to connect to external keyboard. I know Google maintains outstanding engineering practice so there must be a quick and clean fix, only that not enough users tell them about the problem. What’s more, formatting is not as convenient as that in Pages, which has a formatting bar on the bottom of edit interface. Also, the fonts support is so very limited. For a document app that has been free from the beginning, Google Docs does great work, but now that the Apple suite’s become free too, Google needs to keep up.
Needs an equation feature for IOS.
by thedenominator159 on 2019/04/11 17:42
Google Docs is an excellent text editing application. I use it to type various different documents. Creating worksheets, typing papers, and writing the occasional letter are incredibly easy to accomplish. The automatic save feature is wonderful, and I never have to worry about losing a document because of it being automatically uploaded to Google Drive. However, I believe Google Docs needs an equation feature for IOS. I am a Math teacher and currently working towards a Master’s in Mathematics. Recently, I purchased the 2018 iPad Pro to hopefully integrate more technology into the classroom, but I was appalled when I found out that Google docs doesn’t have an equation feature for their mobile app. This makes editing worksheets and working on research papers for analysis classes much more difficult. If Google Docs would add the equation feature, then it would be the perfect text editing app.
Great App, Has Some Issues
by Zeigne_o_Phobia on 2019/03/24 18:15
First, I’ll talk about the things well done about this app. Docs is simple in design, but easy to use and access. I know I’m not alone in saying this is one of the best parts of this app, as I oftentimes find it very difficult to use technology. I don’t have a computer simply because it’s so difficult to download and access files and writing apps. But Docs is so simple, at least for iPhones and iPads — all I have to do is download the app, open it with a tap of my finger, and press the red plus on the bottom right to create a new document. And voila — I’m prepared to write the next major, bestselling novel. Now on to the issues. I have around 100 short writing pieces on another account — it used to be my main one. That “ex account” belongs to a G—suite that will soon be shutting down. The problem is, there’s no easy way to transfer files between accounts with iPads and iPhones. You have to create files, share them with a new account, duplicate them, or just copy-and-paste the contents. But with hundreds of documents, that’s an extreme issue. If Google improves methods to transfer files on mobile, I will eagerly change my rating to a 5 star. I love this app and have used it for years, but there’s some issues I’m worried about. Thank you for your time.
Easy to access important docs on phone
by Anna Teel on 2018/06/20 12:41
One of my favorite things about google docs is the fact that it automatically saves your edits so you don’t have to remember to go back and do it all the time. It’s really nice and convenient to be able to attach my docs easily to emails when I need to. The only downside is that when I use it on my phone, the formatting gets a little wonky sometimes and when I touch a word or phrase to change it and start deleting letters, the formatting usually moves it off my screen so I have to stop and zoom out and try to find it again so I can see what I’m doing. The best way to use the app that I’ve found is to try to do most of your editing on a pc or laptop and just use the finished product when you’re on your phone. Not bad over all tho.
I Overall Enjoy It
by Shanimal10 on 2018/02/20 00:52
I’ve been using Docs for almost 3 years and I’d definitely recommend it. I’ve used it for notes, stories, movie scripts, backup picture saves, and my resume. However, the thing that prevents it from getting a perfect 5/5 is the fact that it freezes sometimes when I stop typing, or when I use the side icon to move quickly through documents. I don’t know what it is, but it’ll just freeze and I end up having to exit the Doc and reentering it. This is minor though, and it usually only goes as far as that, and it still saves what I wrote before the freeze. I’d still like this to be fixed though so I don’t have to constantly do this; it does get annoying and even infuriating when I have to do it dozens of times over a few hours.
Syncing
by madhornytoad on 2017/09/19 07:43
Most of the apps or products that Google has created have been pretty lame, poorly executed or timed and they completely lack the ability to work with the people that use them - some call it customer service - making them just a big lumbering beast riding the wave of success that a search monopoly brought them. The exceptions are Gmail and in my opinion the GSuite of apps. No other company has even come close to having collaborative functionality the way Google has done it. Revisioning, recovery, instantaneous changes and lo and behold I can see when someone is working on a doc at the same time as me. So 5 stars for Google Docs. Guess having all those priceless Stanford degrees sitting around will occasionally produce something awesome.
