Loving it!
by EFTALEM on 2019/02/21 11:21
I’m so happy I can add and edit files from my phone with this app. The only reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars is because I’m not able to add a file within a folder. Meaning I have to be on the main screen, add a file and move it from there. Besides that, it’s a great app!
Hard to use
by squeakerpie on 2019/02/21 11:20
I find this app hard to use on my phone. It would be nice if when I tapped delete it would do so, not open 5 times before I can delete it. Storing docs on my phone is great but I need to be able to access and manipulate then easier. Frustrated.
Perfect Tool to Edit Documents

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. 😄
Amazing
by whatnicknameisnttakenyetfuck on 2019/02/20 20:45
I am currently a full time student, as well as a full time business owner with my husband, and this app is the only thing we ever use. Not only can I log into all my documents from anywhere, I can also share any document I want with my friends, family, or coworkers. BONUS, whoever you share it with will able to edit and make changes to it if I allow them, and those changes are automatically saved to the document so you don’t have to download a million copies. It is a flawless app that makes your life a little bit easier. 10/10!

It's easy to use and so convenient
by Mayra Mini on 2019/02/20 05:00
I use this a lot for school, and this makes it so easy to keep updated with your assignments and edit things from basically anywhere. You can still use it when you're offline so if you ever need to add some last minute details before a presentation or anything like that it makes it very easy to do so. Plus it's not complicated to use at all.
Awesome app!!!

Not Functional
by Missmagnet9 on 2019/02/19 23:14
I don’t even remember when this started, but I can’t even use the app. It immediately goes to a black screen every time I open it. I’ve reinstalled the app, restarted my phone- EVERYTHING- and it still won’t work. It was really helpful for schoolwork when it actually functioned properly, but as of now I cannot even use the app and it’s just taking up space on my phone. I own an iPhone X, running the latest version.

I would have given this app five stars because I have had good experiences with it in the past. But the last three weeks it continues to place in the trash an important document I regularly refer back to. It always asks me if I’d like to move it out of the trash and I always click that I would, but then when I go to reference it again it is in the trash. It is getting very annoying and inconvenient

The only two problems
by Nuel the Storyteller on 2019/02/14 08:52
I love google docs. But I have found two things that if they could be added would make this the best writing program for writers. 1. The I-products don’t have a tab button so putting the indent and the beginning of the paragraph is impossible. We can indent the whole paragraph, but I need to be able to just indent the beginning. 2. It’d be amazing if you programmed the “ into the speech to text. As it is it puts in “Quotation marks” every time you say it. Both things would be fantastic. Apart from these and random crashes when I had cccleaner this app is great.

I use docs EVERYDAY
by princessarei on 2019/02/12 16:26
The only thing I don’t like: there are not enough fonts to choose from. I have to use MLA format for two of my classes and docs doesn’t offer ‘old times roman’ font. (Which is one of the most popular for writing in MLA) Being able to have your documents on/offline everywhere you log into your google account makes everything so much easier! You no longer need to save tons of documents under tons of folders in random areas; docs holds all your documents ever created, and places them in order of how you use them. They offer different font colors and a lot of literature structure support.
Cannot enter Citations.
by Hal-Bal on 2019/02/12 02:31

by justjimmyisfine on 2019/02/10 17:41
The Docs App is great on mobile for writing quick notes and the in-browser version is a full-fledged cloud-backed word processor, Unfortunately the I-Pad version is terrible. It in impossible to select large portions of text or properly edit due to clunky controls. It also runs incredibly slow. To the point where while typing the text doesn’t appear until I’ve started the next sentence. Please update to improve usability.

Lagging when editing a document
by Frosstedflakes on 2019/02/09 20:09
I’m having trouble editing my documents or suggesting changes to a document that is not my own. There is a two second lag time in which I need to wait out after each letter is inputted in. This slows down my work pace and generally makes it harder for me to work on my iPad. Clearing my cache from safari doesn't work. This problem is been going on for more than 3 months.

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.
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.
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

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!

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.)
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 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.
Perfect for Educators
by Your Glamologist on 2018/03/13 14:48
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! Your Glamologist The Siobhan Nicole
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!
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.
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.
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.
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! 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Going down hill
by @davessuccess on 2017/09/24 01:35
Both google sheets and google docs really seem to not work with iOS. I used to love being able to write on google docs but copy and paste and selecting on iPad feels almost impossible. It’s excruciatingly annoying. Using the arrow keys to highlight text doesn’t work properly and it’s jittery. Now Google Sheets feels like Google Docs. I type with my keyboard on any other app no problem but when I do it on google sheets it doesn’t recognize a handful of keystrokes like the letter “e,” “r,” and “n.” Trying to get a cell to open and respond is the worst. It doesn’t work like its web counterpart. it would be so simple if it did. You press enter to open the cell and you press up to go to the beginning of the cell while still being lock in the cell until you press enter again. When you do that on the Google Sheets iOS app cancels everything your doing and you go up to the next cell. If you press enter and start typing it deletes everything in the cell with what you started tying.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Keyboard lag and search issue
by its_artemis_actually on 2018/02/13 20:24
I still have some keyboard lag like others have complained about, but it seems slightly better so fingers crossed that it stays that way. However, I think there might be some issues with search. Whenever I try to search in a document whose first page is only an image (like a cover page), tapping on find and replace randomly turns on print outline. I don’t understand the reason for this, and in the print outline mode the search only scrolls to the first occurrence of the text. So if you want to find any other occurrence, you’re out of luck. Performance also takes a serious hit when the whole document gets reformatted. In the documents where search works correctly, it still doesn’t quite scroll the highlighted text into view. It’s just under the bottom “replace” bar. This means that you have to scroll a little lower to see if it’s the correct occurrence you were looking for...but as soon as you scroll, the input bars disappear. So if it’s the wrong location, you have to go search again, press the down button i + 1 times, and repeat. For some reason though the documents that randomly turn on print outline let you scroll without dismissing search. I would really enjoy a search that doesn’t reformat my document and also correctly scrolls the elements into view.
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.
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.
Good, but needs improvements!
by Bradley N. on 2018/05/25 02:56
Almost every day I use Google Docs, because at my school, that is what they tell us to use all the time, but this app needs as many features as the Google docs on the desktop. I wish they would add the ability to add shapes, and Google Drawings, and the ability to customize the way your tool bar looks! I would also rate this 5 stars if they fixed the lagging problem! Whenever I have to put a graph or table in, and I try to make the table or graph bigger, it just lags, and freezes, and then I have to close the app and reopen it. It is really annoying when it is late at night and you want to get your assignment done, but the software is not letting you because it keeps lagging (that’s just me talking for myself there :)). Please fix that problem, and add a lot of new features!
Who Need Microsoft Word Now That We Have Google Docs
by worldbfree4u on 2018/01/13 20:18
Microsoft has become an app vending machine that charges a subscription to use it’s products in editing format. I like Microsoft Word but not enough to pay for a monthly subscription to it’s IOS application. So, I decided to try out Google Docs app and boy was I pleasantly surprised. This application has most of the functionality of Microsoft’s Word and it is a top performing word processing application. I am glad I switch from Word and happy with the features and functionality available with Google Docs. And the good news is you can save documents in all types of formats, including Microsoft Word. I highly recommend Google Docs for those looking for a competent word processing app that is free and functional.
I love this app
by Misscaluclated on 2018/01/20 05:05
It's great for writing anywhere! For professional writers who want to be able to update their document anywhere at anytime when inspiration strikes this is really good. Or if you get stuck waiting somewhere you can pull up your phone and start working on an assignment. The only things I wish they would improve is the touchy backspace feature (if you hold it down for a few seconds suddenly half a page is gone), and the fact that the chat feature is not available when working on a doc with someone else when using this app. But those are just kind of minor things. Overall very pleased. Have been using this for years and I continue to use it.
Best Writing App
by Ash-Bash rolling in the Cash on 2018/08/03 20:12
This is far by the best writing app I have ever seen on an iPad. I’m an aspiring author, and my very first story’s have been written, edited, revised and published on this app. I still do the same to this day. I do recommend using this on a laptop or computer opposed to an iPad. It’s still the same app, I personally find it easier to click rather then tap. But others may disagree, it really depends on you. I definitely will have this app until I stop writing, which won’t be for a while. I’m excited to see new improvements and fixes whilst we use our imaginations to create stories that look like they were published by professional authors. I love this app, you should definitely put it into consideration.
Very frustrating to use on an ipad
by ...aksiruavqvjsxociuj on 2019/02/05 14:16
I’m trying to edit documents on the ipad pro with the apple smart keyboard, so I expect to be able to edit a document at least as well as a desktop in-browser experience. Instead, every time I try to move the cursor somewhere and pull up an editing/reviewing menu, I get nothing useful and my selection disappears. You need more menu buttons up top and/or better context-menu access, the latter of which should come up every time I select something with shift+arrows. Additionally, editing edit mode to even bring up a cursor is frustratingly difficult because it seems to revert to a useless view mode. Lastly, typing/editing/commenting are all slowed with erratic flushing of the typing buffer because it’s busy searching my gmail contacts for possible suggestions of friends to talk about in a work document. Beyond being just creepy, this is quite limiting to the function of the app.
Good, not great
by braddychild on 2018/02/18 14:49
I love using Docs for everything from letters to meeting notes to flyers. It is simple to use and the templates are helpful. For basic work it does the job. However, I do always have an issue with one thing. I have multiple email addresses for the different organizations that I am involved in and create documents for...multiple times I have created a document under the wrong email and then can not open it or have it in “my drive” under the current one UNLESS I copy and paste it into a new document with the current email. It would be great if, as the owner of said multiple emails, I could drag and drop files into the correct Drive so that I don’t always have to sign out/sign in so many times when I make a simple mistake.
Adequate
by LD Rabbit on 2018/02/20 04:03
Less than intuitive controls for finding and organizing documents. Editing not robust compared to Word, lacking many important features. No real “track changes” option and collaborators can easily make changes that you would not be aware of without doing some Investigating, which often leads to embarrassing and time consuming errors. Far better to use Word and share docs through Dropbox. If you track changes everyone’s revisions show up color coded and if you want temporarily to see the document with all changes accepted, you can and then still easily go back and display all of the edits until you are ready to accept them. Google docs doesn’t come close nor does it provide a full suite of tools that a decent word processing program should have. My stomach clenches every time I’m asked to look at a document on google docs.
Good for school
by Hellokitty7957 on 2018/02/04 17:57
By the title you probably know what I am going to say. BUT I DON’T CARE. I am going to tell you anyway. I am a student that likes to finish work. So when I need to keep writing I can do it on google docs. I would recommend this app if you like writing and doing things on time. But if you don’t care I would still recommend it. The only thing is that takes a minute or two to load. But I don’t care to much I just have to get out of the page and get back on and it works ok. If you’re not in school this would still work if you need to write I guess. To be honest I don’t care how you use this app. Also one thing I like is I can share my writing with my friends and my teacher.
Google Docs improved my life satisfaction
by Runningmouth on 2018/03/22 23:17
Everything is great. I can do all these sophisticated edits on the go b/c of all the advanced features incorporated like the capacity to add links and hyperlinks; comments, navigating through my document based on sections, etc. I would only ask to bring back or upgrade the feature associated with encryption. I used to be able to download encrypted documents into the Drive but now I receive an error MSG. Because security is essential for some confidential docs this must be resolved so I am not be limited in this way. I have a workaround where I can decrypt my encrypted docs from another email provider, then copy and paste content onto an existing google doc that I rename but would prefer a more straightforward solution.

Loving it!
by EFTALEM on 2019/02/21 11:21
I’m so happy I can add and edit files from my phone with this app. The only reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars is because I’m not able to add a file within a folder. Meaning I have to be on the main screen, add a file and move it from there. Besides that, it’s a great app!
Hard to use
by squeakerpie on 2019/02/21 11:20
I find this app hard to use on my phone. It would be nice if when I tapped delete it would do so, not open 5 times before I can delete it. Storing docs on my phone is great but I need to be able to access and manipulate then easier. Frustrated.

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. 😄
Amazing
by whatnicknameisnttakenyetfuck on 2019/02/20 20:45
I am currently a full time student, as well as a full time business owner with my husband, and this app is the only thing we ever use. Not only can I log into all my documents from anywhere, I can also share any document I want with my friends, family, or coworkers. BONUS, whoever you share it with will able to edit and make changes to it if I allow them, and those changes are automatically saved to the document so you don’t have to download a million copies. It is a flawless app that makes your life a little bit easier. 10/10!

by Mayra Mini on 2019/02/20 05:00
I use this a lot for school, and this makes it so easy to keep updated with your assignments and edit things from basically anywhere. You can still use it when you're offline so if you ever need to add some last minute details before a presentation or anything like that it makes it very easy to do so. Plus it's not complicated to use at all.
Awesome app!!!

by Missmagnet9 on 2019/02/19 23:14
I don’t even remember when this started, but I can’t even use the app. It immediately goes to a black screen every time I open it. I’ve reinstalled the app, restarted my phone- EVERYTHING- and it still won’t work. It was really helpful for schoolwork when it actually functioned properly, but as of now I cannot even use the app and it’s just taking up space on my phone. I own an iPhone X, running the latest version.

But the last three weeks it continues to place in the trash an important document I regularly refer back to. It always asks me if I’d like to move it out of the trash and I always click that I would, but then when I go to reference it again it is in the trash. It is getting very annoying and inconvenient

The only two problems
by Nuel the Storyteller on 2019/02/14 08:52
I love google docs. But I have found two things that if they could be added would make this the best writing program for writers. 1. The I-products don’t have a tab button so putting the indent and the beginning of the paragraph is impossible. We can indent the whole paragraph, but I need to be able to just indent the beginning. 2. It’d be amazing if you programmed the “ into the speech to text. As it is it puts in “Quotation marks” every time you say it. Both things would be fantastic. Apart from these and random crashes when I had cccleaner this app is great.

I use docs EVERYDAY
by princessarei on 2019/02/12 16:26
The only thing I don’t like: there are not enough fonts to choose from. I have to use MLA format for two of my classes and docs doesn’t offer ‘old times roman’ font. (Which is one of the most popular for writing in MLA) Being able to have your documents on/offline everywhere you log into your google account makes everything so much easier! You no longer need to save tons of documents under tons of folders in random areas; docs holds all your documents ever created, and places them in order of how you use them. They offer different font colors and a lot of literature structure support.
Cannot enter Citations.
by Hal-Bal on 2019/02/12 02:31
If you are a student This is not for you. It doesn’t show a line in between pages and you can’t even insert citations. Might get a bad grade because of this. Google, please change this! 😡

The worst
by kaylamkoko on 2019/02/11 22:35
Google docs is the worst ever. And that’s an understatement. I was on it on my computer trying to get a project done because my Microsoft subscription expired and I’m not even joking it would even let me move a picture. And I was there for an hour trying to move a stupid picture and I lost my marbles

Does not save offline progress
by HogsHandsDown on 2019/02/11 20:50
Do not download this app if you want to work offline. Google *claims* to save your progress but it really doesn’t. Over 2 hours of schoolwork down the drain and I will never recommend Docs to anyone again
Perfect for any paper

Why can’t I edit the margin details?

Impossible to use on I Pad
by justjimmyisfine on 2019/02/10 17:41
The Docs App is great on mobile for writing quick notes and the in-browser version is a full-fledged cloud-backed word processor, Unfortunately the I-Pad version is terrible. It in impossible to select large portions of text or properly edit due to clunky controls. It also runs incredibly slow. To the point where while typing the text doesn’t appear until I’ve started the next sentence. Please update to improve usability.

Lagging when editing a document
by Frosstedflakes on 2019/02/09 20:09
I’m having trouble editing my documents or suggesting changes to a document that is not my own. There is a two second lag time in which I need to wait out after each letter is inputted in. This slows down my work pace and generally makes it harder for me to work on my iPad. Clearing my cache from safari doesn't work. This problem is been going on for more than 3 months.

Simply the best (as cheesy as that sounds)
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.
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.
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.)
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 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.
Perfect for Educators
by Your Glamologist on 2018/03/13 14:48
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! Your Glamologist The Siobhan Nicole
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!
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.
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.
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.
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! 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Going down hill
by @davessuccess on 2017/09/24 01:35
Both google sheets and google docs really seem to not work with iOS. I used to love being able to write on google docs but copy and paste and selecting on iPad feels almost impossible. It’s excruciatingly annoying. Using the arrow keys to highlight text doesn’t work properly and it’s jittery. Now Google Sheets feels like Google Docs. I type with my keyboard on any other app no problem but when I do it on google sheets it doesn’t recognize a handful of keystrokes like the letter “e,” “r,” and “n.” Trying to get a cell to open and respond is the worst. It doesn’t work like its web counterpart. it would be so simple if it did. You press enter to open the cell and you press up to go to the beginning of the cell while still being lock in the cell until you press enter again. When you do that on the Google Sheets iOS app cancels everything your doing and you go up to the next cell. If you press enter and start typing it deletes everything in the cell with what you started tying.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Keyboard lag and search issue
by its_artemis_actually on 2018/02/13 20:24
I still have some keyboard lag like others have complained about, but it seems slightly better so fingers crossed that it stays that way. However, I think there might be some issues with search. Whenever I try to search in a document whose first page is only an image (like a cover page), tapping on find and replace randomly turns on print outline. I don’t understand the reason for this, and in the print outline mode the search only scrolls to the first occurrence of the text. So if you want to find any other occurrence, you’re out of luck. Performance also takes a serious hit when the whole document gets reformatted. In the documents where search works correctly, it still doesn’t quite scroll the highlighted text into view. It’s just under the bottom “replace” bar. This means that you have to scroll a little lower to see if it’s the correct occurrence you were looking for...but as soon as you scroll, the input bars disappear. So if it’s the wrong location, you have to go search again, press the down button i + 1 times, and repeat. For some reason though the documents that randomly turn on print outline let you scroll without dismissing search. I would really enjoy a search that doesn’t reformat my document and also correctly scrolls the elements into view.
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.
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.
Good, but needs improvements!
by Bradley N. on 2018/05/25 02:56
Almost every day I use Google Docs, because at my school, that is what they tell us to use all the time, but this app needs as many features as the Google docs on the desktop. I wish they would add the ability to add shapes, and Google Drawings, and the ability to customize the way your tool bar looks! I would also rate this 5 stars if they fixed the lagging problem! Whenever I have to put a graph or table in, and I try to make the table or graph bigger, it just lags, and freezes, and then I have to close the app and reopen it. It is really annoying when it is late at night and you want to get your assignment done, but the software is not letting you because it keeps lagging (that’s just me talking for myself there :)). Please fix that problem, and add a lot of new features!
Who Need Microsoft Word Now That We Have Google Docs
by worldbfree4u on 2018/01/13 20:18
Microsoft has become an app vending machine that charges a subscription to use it’s products in editing format. I like Microsoft Word but not enough to pay for a monthly subscription to it’s IOS application. So, I decided to try out Google Docs app and boy was I pleasantly surprised. This application has most of the functionality of Microsoft’s Word and it is a top performing word processing application. I am glad I switch from Word and happy with the features and functionality available with Google Docs. And the good news is you can save documents in all types of formats, including Microsoft Word. I highly recommend Google Docs for those looking for a competent word processing app that is free and functional.
I love this app
by Misscaluclated on 2018/01/20 05:05
It's great for writing anywhere! For professional writers who want to be able to update their document anywhere at anytime when inspiration strikes this is really good. Or if you get stuck waiting somewhere you can pull up your phone and start working on an assignment. The only things I wish they would improve is the touchy backspace feature (if you hold it down for a few seconds suddenly half a page is gone), and the fact that the chat feature is not available when working on a doc with someone else when using this app. But those are just kind of minor things. Overall very pleased. Have been using this for years and I continue to use it.
Best Writing App
by Ash-Bash rolling in the Cash on 2018/08/03 20:12
This is far by the best writing app I have ever seen on an iPad. I’m an aspiring author, and my very first story’s have been written, edited, revised and published on this app. I still do the same to this day. I do recommend using this on a laptop or computer opposed to an iPad. It’s still the same app, I personally find it easier to click rather then tap. But others may disagree, it really depends on you. I definitely will have this app until I stop writing, which won’t be for a while. I’m excited to see new improvements and fixes whilst we use our imaginations to create stories that look like they were published by professional authors. I love this app, you should definitely put it into consideration.
Very frustrating to use on an ipad
by ...aksiruavqvjsxociuj on 2019/02/05 14:16
I’m trying to edit documents on the ipad pro with the apple smart keyboard, so I expect to be able to edit a document at least as well as a desktop in-browser experience. Instead, every time I try to move the cursor somewhere and pull up an editing/reviewing menu, I get nothing useful and my selection disappears. You need more menu buttons up top and/or better context-menu access, the latter of which should come up every time I select something with shift+arrows. Additionally, editing edit mode to even bring up a cursor is frustratingly difficult because it seems to revert to a useless view mode. Lastly, typing/editing/commenting are all slowed with erratic flushing of the typing buffer because it’s busy searching my gmail contacts for possible suggestions of friends to talk about in a work document. Beyond being just creepy, this is quite limiting to the function of the app.
Good, not great
by braddychild on 2018/02/18 14:49
I love using Docs for everything from letters to meeting notes to flyers. It is simple to use and the templates are helpful. For basic work it does the job. However, I do always have an issue with one thing. I have multiple email addresses for the different organizations that I am involved in and create documents for...multiple times I have created a document under the wrong email and then can not open it or have it in “my drive” under the current one UNLESS I copy and paste it into a new document with the current email. It would be great if, as the owner of said multiple emails, I could drag and drop files into the correct Drive so that I don’t always have to sign out/sign in so many times when I make a simple mistake.
Adequate
by LD Rabbit on 2018/02/20 04:03
Less than intuitive controls for finding and organizing documents. Editing not robust compared to Word, lacking many important features. No real “track changes” option and collaborators can easily make changes that you would not be aware of without doing some Investigating, which often leads to embarrassing and time consuming errors. Far better to use Word and share docs through Dropbox. If you track changes everyone’s revisions show up color coded and if you want temporarily to see the document with all changes accepted, you can and then still easily go back and display all of the edits until you are ready to accept them. Google docs doesn’t come close nor does it provide a full suite of tools that a decent word processing program should have. My stomach clenches every time I’m asked to look at a document on google docs.
Good for school
by Hellokitty7957 on 2018/02/04 17:57
By the title you probably know what I am going to say. BUT I DON’T CARE. I am going to tell you anyway. I am a student that likes to finish work. So when I need to keep writing I can do it on google docs. I would recommend this app if you like writing and doing things on time. But if you don’t care I would still recommend it. The only thing is that takes a minute or two to load. But I don’t care to much I just have to get out of the page and get back on and it works ok. If you’re not in school this would still work if you need to write I guess. To be honest I don’t care how you use this app. Also one thing I like is I can share my writing with my friends and my teacher.
Google Docs improved my life satisfaction
by Runningmouth on 2018/03/22 23:17
Everything is great. I can do all these sophisticated edits on the go b/c of all the advanced features incorporated like the capacity to add links and hyperlinks; comments, navigating through my document based on sections, etc. I would only ask to bring back or upgrade the feature associated with encryption. I used to be able to download encrypted documents into the Drive but now I receive an error MSG. Because security is essential for some confidential docs this must be resolved so I am not be limited in this way. I have a workaround where I can decrypt my encrypted docs from another email provider, then copy and paste content onto an existing google doc that I rename but would prefer a more straightforward solution.
