Description
Create, edit, and collaborate with others on spreadsheets from your iPod, iPhone, or iPad with the free Google sheets app. With Google Sheets you can: * Create new spreadsheets or edit any that were created on the web or on another device * Share spreadsheets and work together with others in the same spreadsheet at the same time * Get stuff done anytime -- even without an internet connection * Format cells, enter/sort data, view charts, insert formulas, use find/replace, and more * Never worry about losing your work -- everything is automatically saved as you type * Protect your spreadsheets with a 4-digit passcode * Open, edit, and save Excel files
Needs more functionality
by itbeanew1 on 2020/06/03 20:37
I’m no developer, but considering Sheets is web based in its full version, it seems odd that the iPad version is so neutered. My organization restricts G-Suite access via browser, so I am forced to use the app, or pull out my giant crappy corporate issued laptop. Considering the iPad now has trackpad support, perhaps implementing a touch optimized experience with reduced functionality and a trackpad optimized experience with full functionality would be an option. Maybe have it automatically switch between the two, depending on if a trackpad is discovered?

Cant open links in spreadsheets
by DarkZboy on 2020/06/02 08:10
The app seems to be able to recognize that it should render a hyperlink. But theres no way to navigate to a link upon clicking the cell.
Another top quality product from Google.

Keep them sheets coming

I love working with google sheets. The accessibility to information is amazing. The sheets are also easy to edit and update. Highly recommended.

Editable links don’t work
by TheSorcerA on 2020/05/31 18:04
When someone places a link in a place that allows people to edit a usually uneditable document and you click on the editable version, it is still view only in the app.
Editing text in cells is a chore
by telephag on 2020/05/31 14:29
Use current and native text editing so I can navigate with a keyboard. The iPad experience is especially worthless.
Won’t let me use spreadsheets sent to me!
by ShadowsFall77 on 2020/05/30 18:17
I keep getting a message that says “get the app”. The thing is I HAVE THE APP!!! It leads me to the store where it say says “OPEN” - not “get” which means I HAVE the app. Then I’m led to a place where all my sheets that I made are stored. The sheet recently texted to me is not there. Sooooo I go back to the text and click on it and guess what? I’m met with the “get the app message again! I’m going in circles trying to use this app.

Overall nice, but visually super choppy
by Spydernights on 2020/05/29 21:49
Overall I like the Google ecosystem, and I love all of the desktop/browser versions. It is just the iPad version that is so visually choppy and below the quality of everything else. It is really surprising from Google.

Started at the bottom, now we here
by 👓Sunnania👓 on 2020/05/29 00:16
Here, as in, the middle of the cell, which is the exact place where I don’t want to start editing. If I have stuff in a cell and I want to change it, I’d prefer it if I had the cursor at the end of the writing so I can then move it to somewhere else On that note, can you please change how things users edit things written in cells? Using the select feature on the IPhone is such a hassle, so please design it so that’s it’s more intuitive and user-friendly
Yep. Just what I was looking for without the cost.
by Cor*Dawn*Yah on 2020/05/28 23:49
As an independent outside sales contractor this allows me to make little changes to spreadsheets and stay keeps from being chained to my laptop.

Loading
by Gexah95 on 2020/05/24 19:32
I went to load comments on a doc. It read there were no comments but to be the first one to. There was no option to add a comment. I left the page and opened the doc again. This time it would NOT load. It kept loading with the grey circle. Disconnected from WiFi even went to airplane mode to reconnect. Still the same thing for the next 3 attempts. After some time I decided to try again. All though it worked I became frustrated through this process. Since then there have been no software issues.

Annoying that You can’t edit without app on mobile
by MR. Phill 234 on 2020/05/22 19:53
The app is not bad, it is just annoying that I have to het the app in the first place. Is it really that hard on a mobile browser to make it so you can double tap a box to edit it so you don’t need the app for making small changes. You don’t need to include anything else, just the ability to add and remove text from boxes. It is very annoying to have to download a decent sized app just to write down 5-10 words on a spreadsheet, then delete the app to save space.
Worthless and frustrating
by Charlie Moody on 2020/05/22 19:32
If you’re looking for an app that will let you download and open spreadsheets on you iPad, THIS ISN’T IT. I’ve been working with computers and designing/implementing software on many platforms for 40 years, and this thing violates virtually EVERY rule I can think of for software functionality. This puts on par with Google’s “products” for iOS: doesn’t deserve even a single star. Save yourself the needless frustration.
No-cost, user-friendly, multi-purpose tool.
by Itmademerateit105 on 2020/05/22 16:22
Free, easy to use, and able to share with others to edit/view. I use it to organize, plan/schedule, and collect information. I cannot speak to its ability to work with quantitative data (ie. numbers, graphs, stats, etc), which I mention only b/c I know some will seek this app to do just that. I used Excel in college when working with large data sets; I didn’t know about Sheets back then. If you are looking for a FREE & easy to use tool to help you get organized and structured in your day to day activities, whether that’s managing your home, your business, your ministry, or your social media platform, etc., you’ll enjoy & appreciate this app. It’s also great to use as an archive where you can collect resources, contact info, etc.

Add Printing in landscape as an option. Google Docs allows it but Sheets does not give the option.

App does not work well on iPhone
by Hdawggydog on 2020/05/20 09:02
Every time I come across an excel I want to edit it brings up the “to edit please download the app” response. I already have the app and it’s updated but it never takes me to the app so that I can easily edit documents. This has been a problem for a while and don’t know how to fix it. It always brings me to the App Store instead of the actual app. So it’s been useless.
Absolutely awful

Please make it easier to edit cells with a lot of text in them. Please also support opening multiple windows / instances on iPad, and support the iOS cursor / text manipulation system. Google needs to be a better iOS citizen. Thanks!

Cell gets pushed off screen
by Ike Leland on 2020/05/18 07:14
when the keyboard or num pad appears it pushes the entire sheet up...sometimes moving the selected cell off-screen. the desired behavior should be to move the sheet relative to the cell so it’s just above the keyboard/num pad.

Shared sheets editing
by RILEY WAYNE on 2020/05/14 16:46
The only reason why I got this app was to edit shared sheets and it doesn’t even work. I have to tell people to email me them instead and it’s so much of a hassle. This app is useless.
Love it!!!

With Google Sheets, I can budget my income and expenses in a monthly format. I created an interactive program in a monthly format to see our family finances. This allows me to see current and projected future balances for any given day of the month. Throughout the month, cash levels in bank accounts are constantly changing. With my phone, I can see a spreadsheet for the whole month. ✅
Always crashes

iPad Pro - no cursor when editing - BUG

While editing in sheets I can no longer see the cursor and the apple pen 2 doesn’t seem to allow me to place the cursor where I want to edit text. Please fix. :)
The concept is great
by kimtheo on 2020/05/06 19:44
However the ease in using them could be better. I use sheets often during my workouts. So after each set I enter the weight and reps completed. During the next set, my screen will black out and when I click it back on, the unpredictability of whether sheets will open up exactly where I was or if I need to click on the title page and then the page at the bottom of the screen again takes over. Time is spent scrolling and clicking on between the “numbers only” board and the letter board. It’s clunky. I don’t know what the answer is to make it better, I just know that it can be. Thank you!
Love google sheets!

Unable to Edit Shared Sheets
by Cristyjewelry on 2019/05/20 13:18
I try to go as mobile as possible, because opening up a computer all the time sometimes is just too much of a hassle or takes way too much time for something that should be done so quickly, such as signing up for a meeting time. Whenever I try to edit a spreadsheet for something like signing up, there’s always an annoying pop-up that says I need to download the app in order to edit at all. And even when I already have it downloaded, I still have to press the only “accept” button on that pop-up, which says “get the app”. It takes me back to the app store, where I then have to press “open”, and opens up to the Google Sheets app, but the sheets I would be trying to edit wouldn’t automatically come up. Checking the “Shared with Me” tab doesn’t do anything, trying the process over again doesn’t do anything, and nor does completely closing the App Store or Google Sheets app then starting the process over again do anything. This practically makes the Sheets app useless for me, because this is pretty much the only reason I need it. When using Sheets, I’m usually just trying to open someone else’s Sheets page, which they linked somewhere, and edit it rather than creating one myself.
It works ok
by jp430f1 on 2017/12/16 12:30
For a mobile app it works ok. A lot more functional on my computer and iPad than my iPhone X. As powerful as my cell phone is, I expect a bit more. Make all the functions available. I use this primarily for my monthly budget and it is difficult to change the functions of a box when all you can do it add numbers and not enter more complex calculations for each box. That is my only complaint besides the usual crashing and instability issues. It could flow a little easier and have the calculations as a ready part of setting up the spreadsheet instead of reinventing the wheel so to speak. Make it intuitive so people with out an mba can manage their budget by setting this up for themselves. I have done this for many people and my hope is that they follow through with it, but if I’m having a difficult time, I imagine others that just use my template, probably just give up if they can’t make easy changes with the mobile version because it never dawns on them to go back to the computer to make them.
Leery of The G word
by Somps on 2020/02/02 17:52
I used to love everything about Google. Now, because of the way they are treating people on the political spectrum, I don’t trust them. It’s hard to beat “free” and that’s how they snare us, but it does have some cool features. If u know how to use JavaScript, it will allow u to create some pretty good sheets. Like I said, just know that they capture all of your data and pray they don’t abuse it too much. I do find it a bit slow when I am trying to update a sheet from my iPhone when it’s an auto fill cell. For example, I have a cell with a drop down and one of the choices in the drop down is “yes” and after choosing it, it is supposed to fill the next cell with the time & date, and it does but it can take up to 30 seconds. You are wondering if it is working on it or not until it finally populates the cell. Some of that could be on the iPhone update but I think that it was happening before the iPhone update as well.
An Amazing App
by PricelessMe on 2020/03/23 14:14
Love, love, love this app!!! It is amazing and dependable. I like that its offline and I can use it whereever I am, even when traveling. I use it for our family budget and to pay of large bills and credit cards. It allow me to adjust the payment amounts when I want to pay a bill off early. I list my dates by each payment and I can see exactly when I'll have a bill paid off. It's been a real asset to our family. I don't have to worry about my data being locked up until I buy or update the subscription like what happened with another app, because its free. It was such an inconvenience. But this app has proven its value time and time again. I also like how I can plug in my formulas to show the interest rate and declining balance of my credit cards. I highly recommend to everyone to use it. My sincerest thanks to the maker of this exceptional app!!!
Love the app except lack of mobile details
by Singoffpitch on 2018/11/13 02:31
I love everything about the app except that it lacks the ability to access some of the settings that are available in the online version. I like to set cells to change color or configure running data based on what is entered and I can't adjust those settings in existing spreadsheets or add parameters to new sheets from the mobile app. Otherwise, I can do pretty much everything in the app I can do on the computer (and many things are easier from the app, which is why I'd really like full features available since I prefer using sheets from the app!!) and I'm a Google Sheets addict and president of the Sheets fan club! I've never had any problems with the app or lost data and it even saves my data automatically when I click out of the app without clicking the checkmark to save! Love Google Sheets!! 😁

Just needs to improve the interface dynamics.
by meu nickname on 2019/07/07 15:09
The features are great for my usage (stock portfolio track), it feels easier and more intuitive than excel. But the usage experience for me is still not there yet. The touch interface/dynamics still feels like a low quality app. It would only pan either horizontally or vertically and not both at the same time. When one cell is selected I’m not able to change to other sheet pages (excel and numbers managed to do it without any problem). It feels underdeveloped when compared to apple numbers usability. When I’m checking my sheets on the iPhone the actual area is so small compared to the other two apps also. It has a a great potential, in my opinion it just needs some fine tuning for touch versions. Desktop browser version works perfectly.
Google sheets rocks!
by Babu Sath on 2018/04/29 15:49
Google sheets my excel for private use. It is very reliable and works well. Especially for using from multiple devices from multiple locations. From a functionality perspective one thing puts Google Sheets above excel is its support for Unicode making it work well for non-English data. Once disappointment to date has been that it is either matching or lagging Microsoft Excel mostly. I say this without claiming to be an expert who has used its entire functionality, so take that with a pinch of salt. I would like to see Google team taking us in to a new world of functionality and capability - for example, seamless working between documents, databases, multimedia, and presentations. I would be glad to talk to Google Office team, if interested.
Love this App!!
by BryanE63 on 2017/10/03 14:28
Love this App!! Very convenient and I can access it on any device!! I have had past experiences where I had other apps for a while and without any warning at all from the Developer, the app was no longer available or was not compatible with the newest software so this left me High and Dry!! Very frustrating when you have to re-do all the information over again and find the info from many different places!! So the only advice I can give to the Developer of the Apps is to please let the people know when your no longer going to have the App available for us to retrieve our information so we can at least store it somewhere else so it’s not completely lost and we have to start everything over.
Freaking Love It
by Archer of Nor on 2019/10/11 02:42
I’m a bar manager and I use Google Sheets almost daily. I use it to do all of my liquor and beer orders (color coded, and some really nifty conditional formatting too). It makes all of my reps very happy with how organized it is! I also use it to do inventory on 3 bars and a huge storage area, profit margin sheets, employee phone lists etc... it’s incredibly useful to be able to pull up any information I need, immediately, on my phone. I used to do everything on Excel; printing all the pages out, writing all the counts down, going back into Excel to enter all the counts... Sheets let’s me do everything on my phone or iPad and autosums as I go. Not only does Sheets keep me nice and organized, it also makes orders and inventory go SO much faster.
Will be perfect with some fixes
by ltshep on 2018/05/19 17:14
Google drive is already my go-to for documents and spreadsheets (I don’t really use slideshows, but if I ever need to, it’s the default for me there too). I don’t edit my sheets too often on mobile, as it’s simply much easier to use the desktop site, but it’s great for viewing. The desktop site has it’s issues. Merged cells are impossible to move accurately in any direction but upward, zooming makes lines appear between and within cells that only disappear once reloaded, or zoomed back to 100%, but reappear upon scrolling. But, those aren’t present on the app. The only complaint I have for the app is the ease of use, but a mouse and keyboard will always be easier to use than just a touch-screen.
The future is here.
by USABlake on 2018/05/22 01:32
This and sheets on the computer browser will frustrate some people a bit if they are used to Excel. But I find sheets and drive to be light years ahead of whatever Microsoft is cooking up to compete. I can’t live without mobile access to my spreadsheets anymore. And holy crap, collaboration will never be the same. Microsoft has nothing on google. I cringe when people share an xls spreadsheet back and forth. Lol. Especially when it’s shared through google drive. Seriously saw that. Wow. Nice try, but you missed the fact that there is a better way. And so, so much easier. And you can actually work together instead of checking to see if the other person has it opened and not saved.
Poor functionality
by twoarmscollin on 2020/02/19 16:29
I can use command-a to select all of the text in a cell, but I cannot use command-i to make text italic. I cannot select and edit text within a cell, only in the bar on the bottom, thus making it incredibly inefficient. For someone doing qualitative research without access to Nvivo, spreadsheets are an important tool. While sheets on laptops and desktops is a viable rival for excel, and google’s ability for teams to simultaneously edit sheets is unchallenged, the mobile app makes it nearly impossible for me to get my work accomplished using my tablet with keyboard attachment. Why lug around my laptop when I can bring my brand new tablet that handles everything else so well? Google - get the functionality of this app on par with the sheets browser experience. Do not recommend using this app for mobile. Stick to the browser, or use a different program entirely.
Almost useless, and web versionnot accessible with an ipad
by Hunt.tr04 on 2019/11/21 18:30
I use google sheets for experiments as i am a freshman, i bring my iPad to school almost always, its my computer substitute, when its lab day and we to graph the information, i dread as the app is useless, i cannot edit a graph to add a trend line, and googles “helpful”advice is to use the web version, funny enough you cannot access the web version without a work around in ios that takes 3 minutes, thats safari, not chrome, it is impossible on chrome, after opening the web version, it tries to make you use the app, and constantly giving you a pop off that its not supported, and not able to format. it becomes slow and laggy as well. My advice to google is to not advertise an app that doesn't have some of the simplest features such as adding an equation or a trend line to a graph. And don't have a help center filled with incorrect information
This is truly pathetic
by snorkfire on 2019/05/03 00:55
Is it really just me that sees a dog slow app? I copied this review’s title from my departing comment within my effort to create a stock tracking spreadsheet. In what turned out to be my second effort at exploring using Sheets I found enormous difficulty overcoming the very long hang times and delays, so left that comment to myself to remind me in case I ever try it again. Add to that the fact that the stock query is missing a dividend/yield function on stocks, and we have arrived at the bizarre. That’s quite a miss. And add to that the inability to query a closing price on a date without forcing an 5 cell array construct and we have a mess. Apple does this in one cell with one date reference, folks. Well, I hate the long hanging “Calculating” times in the Numbers app, but Sheets is little better there for letting me edit while it thinks, and quite a bit more limited in overall dogginess and limitations. Disappointed.
Missing a couple of features
by EDAAmanda on 2017/11/29 22:53
Over all, it’s a really good app. It’s very convenient to have access to my spreadsheets on my phone, but I really wish the app had the same functionality with setting up equations as the desktop version does. It’s really annoying to have to enter my equation into each individual field and mark that I’m done before being able to move onto the next one. I’d like to be able to enter one, then click the corner and drag it into any additional fields I need. I am also displeased they took away requiring a passcode to enter the app. I have things in there I don’t want my daughter to see and she uses my phone sometimes. If it’s passcode protected, then I don’t have to worry.
Compatible with ease.
by Lobo325 on 2017/12/02 23:12
Needed an excel spreadsheet app and this is by far the better option at the moment. Unlike the other excel apps that you need to fork over money and yet have compatibility issues between the printer or even while using it, this one is quick and easy between devices. I use this for my clients for setting up their weekly workout schedule and emailing it without any hassle like crashing. Recently started using it for making “range-table” cards for F-Class long distance shooting at the range. Overall, I’m very pleased with the functionality. The only downside is that I wish I gotten this App sooner and had saved the money on the other mediocre version.
I really want to give it 5 stars
by bac2thaBasix on 2019/08/24 00:58
As the title shows, I really do want to give this app 5 stars but there is one small thing I wish this app would do that it does but MS excel app does. It’s leaving the last excel spreadsheet open that you had when ever you change apps. Like if I pull open a template and then go to another app on my phone I have to go back to the home page in sheets, then click the sheets file I was just in, then wait for the file to open. In MS word I literally can input data, change apps then go back to excel and I am brought automatically back to the last cell that I had just entered data. If google sheets does that, I’ll be more than happy to give them 5 stars.
Always Room For Improvement, but...
by BudgetWise101 on 2018/12/06 22:03
I’ve been using Google Sheets for years. I’m not an absolute expert but I’ve been able to create a comprehensive Google Sheets financial workbook to chart my family and business finances as well as a product inventory workbook. My greatest of challenges has to do with knowing how to use Google Sheets effectively on different devices. I work with them on my messed up Pixel XL phone (that keeps rebooting daily), iPhones, iPads (large and small), and my Windows desktop. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find tutorials to assist me in accomplishing functions for my product inventory workbook that I see others achieving. If you know of resources that would help certainly let me know.
Worst Google app
by Ericanii on 2018/12/21 17:25
Nearly impossible to use. I use fairly large sheets to keep track of my projects. I was trying to update one today on my iPad and I had to re-enter the values on nearly every changed cell TWICE because either it would glitch or not type as I was typing. I also use a sheet that updates based on a sheet of a friend of mine's and in the sheet app it just DOESN'T work at all. I have to look at it in the browser. But you can't edit sheets in the browser on chrome for some reason??????? Drive site crashed like 5 times trying to just open a sheet on chrome so I can edit it. Sheet would not update with new values from my friends sheet in the app. I am fully engrained in the Google ecosystem for all my easy documentation storage but sheets on iPad is by far the WORST Google app I have ever used to the point I'm here complaining. It just doesn't work.
Very good - but Google could make it super
by GoodOldMonkey on 2020/01/02 04:35
This app has amazing capabilities, and a few silly defects. + You can share full-featured spreadsheets in real time. On my iPhone I can correct data right next to the cell my niece is editing on a Windows desktop hundreds of miles away. + Really powerful: even on the mobile version you can create SQL-like queries of spreadsheet or external data, and useful charts. + Super easy data input from Google forms for repetitive stuff. - Crashes pretty often. - Some major browser-version features — edit-triggered routines, for example, and modifying protection — aren’t available on the mobile version. - Doesn't tell you when it's still busy downloading or calculating. A big spreadsheet can take several minutes to load and calculate, and you may meanwhile jump to some wrong decisions. - Doesn't keep track of where you were when you reopen a workbook. If you were looking at row 3323 on Sheet Four, navigating back is a non-trivial pain in the tail.
Fixed income
by jmy81 on 2019/10/12 00:23
I am a 57 year old man and have been disabled since 2008 and am on an income which is less than half of what I was making at the plant where I worked, didn’t get check for 2 years, lost one of my vehicles, went thru savings and still had to beg for food, almost lost my house and 6 acres, worked with loan company and kept it. My wife is also disabled, I cannot spend money I don’t have , I’m an ole country boy in Tennessee and I had pride up until all money was gone and eating canned corn only for supper and had to swallow my pride and beg for food, so don’t lecture me about a budget, you’re eating lobsters, steaks and shrimp, drinking wine and I’m eating wild rabbits, squirrels and white tail deer.
It doesn’t work when it should
by ZharloMang on 2019/11/22 20:26
I have been sent a google Sheet to edit with peers. The site constantly has the pop-up stating (get google sheets to make edits) or such. I have the app. And it it’s both impossible to open directly from the sheet, or opening it an internet browser doesn’t allow me to open it in sheets. Essentially I can access it without first downloading into my phone, then re-opening. It also does not show up in my recent history. I would say this is exactly what the app needs to do for a mobile app, is cross opening or at least for the option to open in Sheets is available. It isn’t. At the very least it should be able to know I have the app instead of advertising to me to download, and open up the app itself, instead of the App Store. So poor in the final product’s function.
Amazing FREE program!
by Bluswept on 2017/10/10 14:16
If college taught me anything, it’s that Google’s FREE alternatives to Microsoft Office programs are AMAZING. It’s not that there’s more features, it’s simply the simplicity. I don’t need to be an advanced programmer in order to figure out how to do things within Sheets. Even if I don’t know, a quick google search results in a very simple step by step guide by google that cuts right to the chase. It’s easy to collaborate, too. Simply add the person/people’s email address(es) and they’ll be sent a link that will let them access the sheet, and you can give them specific permissions, or you can just create a shareable link.
Does everything I need
by dglana on 2017/10/29 17:33
This app is great! It allows me to read and edit anything that I have created in Google sheets online. It doesn't have the functionality that the online program on the phone but it still works well to allow me to do what I need to do. When computers are not available this app is a lifesaver. I have one thing to note. When printing a spreadsheet sometimes it will try to make it fit on one page and I can't alter that direction, making the data minuscule. Biggest issue is when I want to search for data. The search function does not do all I would like it to do. Hope that issue is fixed soon.
Good for when you’re in a pinch
by Bigbadserrao on 2017/12/02 18:31
Of all the concepts to survive the desktop to mobile shift in our computing lives, none of them make less sense to me than trying to create spreadsheets on a touch screen. It’s just a task that benefits from the percussion of a mouse and the wide screens of desktop machines so much. Yet, google sheets tries to get this right and mostly succeeds. You’re still going to make lots of errors and be frustrated by the nested menus of settings but the tight integration with google drive, impressive feature set and collaborative capabilities makes this a great solution for minor spreadsheet edits and reference.
Excellent spreadsheet app for when one is on the go!
by Scott Kern on 2018/02/06 11:58
Full spreadsheet functionality from one’s smartphone, with access to all spreadsheet files (“Google Sheets”) which one has saved on Google Drive. Contrary to another review, which stated that only numbers could be edited and complex formulas could not be altered, this app allows any desired change to be made to each cell, just the same as from a desktop or laptop computer’s Google Sheets web interface. Possibly the other reviewer did not notice that toggling between numbers and letters is possible when editing each cell!
Wish I could edit from links people send me
by micste6643 on 2020/03/17 16:41
I commonly will be sent a link to google sheets from someone and when I select it, it’s goes to a read-only view in a browser saying that I should open it in the app to edit. When I follow the given links to download/open the app, it doesn’t take me to the sheet that I originally linked from. In addition, there is no easy way to find a link to an editable sheet. Seems to defeat the purpose of having google sheet links and my ability to collaborate with others. When you finally can get into the app and edit a sheet, it’s a good product. Just awful for any sort of mobile use without being able to share easily.
Love that I can access my spreadsheets on any device, but editing is buggy on iPhone
by TechnoCritic on 2018/12/29 18:12
It’s awesome to be able to access my spreadsheets anywhere, anytime. I’ve completely converted all of my personal spreadsheets to Google Sheets. My only complaint is, editing spreadsheets on the phone is cumbersome, especially when editing a cell that contains a function. After placing my cursor at the point where I want to type, the contents of the edit field are moved so that the cursor is at the far left edge of the field. As I type, the cursor stays in this location, meaning that I can’t see what I’m typing as I type it. This seems to be a bug in the form field control. Wish this could be fixed.
Works Very Well! (Especially for business)
by GabbyDatGamer (YouTube) on 2018/01/12 03:32
This works great for my business! It helps to organize what has and what hasn’t happened. It also helps to keep track of money sums, payments, bills, and more! Very helpful and recommended for businesses. Since on iOS, it has made life so much easier than just on PC’s. Though, it would be better if it didn’t run on any sort of internet connection. When away on business, and you have no connection, it can make it hard for me to organize it. In the end, it can make a great organizer, and a great tool. Thanks!, GDG
Where’s the AutoSum?
by Gavins_bat_girl on 2019/12/19 20:13
One thing I loved about Excel is that the Auto Sum function worked. The reason why that was nice is for what I do, there may or may not be a value in a certain cell and it would add up each existing value in a column. Even if the line item was deleted, it wouldn’t return an #error message. The reason I prefer google sheets, however, is that it’s free; whereas, in Excel, I had to pay for a subscription to edit the document. That and the app told me I didn’t have a subscription, but when I tried resubscribing, it told me I already had one. 🤪 So... my business is on hold until I can figure out which spreadsheet to use.
Good app
by MikeerdiGames9972 on 2018/05/02 22:07
By far more of a google fan than apple, (even though I have an iPad) and really enjoy having my google spreadsheets and other stuff on my iPad. When you use the mobile version of google’s apps, you still get all of the main features of the desktop version. Google does good at incorporating all the desktop features into the mobile app, while it is still extremely easy to use. Sometimes I even prefer the mobile app instead, because of its easy-to-use interface, and most of the desktop features are still there.
Great for wedding guest lists, other collaborations
by Wwndyyyy on 2017/11/04 18:00
This is so much safer, easier and better than sending a spreadsheet around to many people and trying to keep up with the current, correct version. It alerts you when others make changes and you can see every single change (and who made it)back to the beginning of the document. You literally cannot f this thing up. Do I wish sometimes it had full excel functionality? Of course - but that's like saying I wish horses could fly - it would be optimal but it's not part of the design :)
GREAT App that Synchs to All my Devices!
by Ekgpress on 2018/02/22 15:29
I love this App. It allows me to make additions to any device of mine that I might be using (computer; iphone; ipad). I primarily use Sheets for language study — and what is great about it, is that there is never confusion, even when mixing 2 different alphabets (ie, Hebrew has it’s own alphabet that goes from right-to-left, which is opposite to that for English). It takes a little getting used to re learning how to alter settings on an ipad — but once you learn this, it becomes VERY easy to customize any list exactly the way you want it — so I LOVE this app! Thank you!
Cheaper and more secure than network attached storage
by MurrayMM on 2019/04/10 01:14
Given that most Network Attached Storage boxes are too easily hacked, I cannot justify the cost of replacing my 12 year old NAS at home. The Google drive with Docs and Sheets is far more secure and cost effective for the long term. I would have given Sheets 5 stars except for my continued frustration that it does not come back to where I left off. Having to scroll down hundreds of lines every time is a waste of my time. Other than having to learn the new formatting commands, I am very happy with Sheets. P.S. I was using DecCalc in the 1970s and Lotus 123 in the 1980s. I have written hundreds of spreadsheets.
Difference between version on Mac
by CaboCarl on 2019/04/12 20:14
I 100% like both versions, but would like the iPad version to work the same way when changing a cell formula or data. The Mac deletes the entire data when you start to change the data so you don’t have to delete each digit, whereas the iPad version just adds it onto what was there. Also when you access a formula in a cell, if you don’t enter each cell you come to with another enter, it creates strange formulas instead of leaving them as they were. Mac version doesn’t do that and is preferred.
Versatile
by SD_Gringo on 2017/10/27 18:39
I use this for so many things - handy to use between my laptop and iPhone. More than one of us can edit the worksheets at the same time. I use it to track finances, a daily plan/schedule for my move from one state to another, a log of test results and actions I take to maintain my pool that I can reference at the store, a roster and schedule for coordinating volunteer sports activities, vacation plans I can reference on the go, a noble to do list that my wife and I can share, and tracking the family budget. It is not as powerful as MS Excel, but plenty useful for what I need.
Good for school
by Ariana Solis on 2019/07/29 18:25
I have been using google sheets for my college career. I installed good sheets and docs on my iPad, iPhone and log in online at home through my computer. The eat part is that everything uploads and refreshed in seconds and does it in all devices I am using. I love that I can work on things through my phone when ever I need it and when I get home I continue my work online through my iPad. When I need to make final touches and print I use my laptop. Google sheets and docs are amazing for a college student when working and going to school. I can’t complain. LOVE IT!
Good usage, bad implementation
by MinecraftRocks! on 2019/06/25 16:22
Don’t get me wrong, I love the app and use it all the time. However when I get a link to a spreadsheet or have to access it via a browser, it does not recognize the app is downloaded, requests me to go to the App Store to download it despite already having it, and continues the loop, no matter what kind of loophole I try to use, it requires me to “download” an already downloaded app and does not recognize that it has been opened by my account despite having logged in via browser and opening up the link. That is probably the biggest reason I may have to delete the app because of how frequent and important these links are.
Great app for my needs
by Texwad on 2017/10/30 03:27
Pros-This app has made my life really easy being able to track several metrics on all of my devices. When I am on the go I can update from my phone or tablet and then once I’m home or at the office, I can continue to update, analyze, then print once ready. Cons- Wish that it would open to the last cell modified. One spreadsheet that I use has over 15,000 rows and I have to scroll to the bottom to get to the new data and update which takes some time. It would be nice to have it open where I left off.
Everything you would expect
by Sir Amelius on 2018/03/01 11:38
Definitely like the app. Interface is intuitive. Does everything the average user would want it to do. However, I give it 4 stars because it won’t run script. I’ve created buttons that when clicked, causes a cell to increase in value by x amount or decrease by the same amount; the same buttons, when you open the file in the app, do not function in the same way. Instead it treats the buttons as just images. You can’t access script editor on this app either. Would be cool if you could allow the app to run custom scripts and create/edit script.
Worst app ever!
by KernNBurn on 2018/12/15 00:51
Google sheets is the worst app ever! My life was easy until I downloaded google sheets. Not only does it mess up the split window on my iPad Pro, it even messed up google drive. Using google sheets is the equivalent of putting another hole in my head! The app it works worst with is google drive! How does that make sense? Google drive is easily navigated until sheets or other apps are also introduced, then navigating them becomes less discernible than interstate spaghetti bowls. Google sheets is so horrible I’m going to ditch google drive and every other app google offers. All any of them do is get in the way! Google maps is the second worst! Wait, I forgot about Chrome, what a computer overloading pile of dog crap! The world will be a better place when google is removed from it!
The concept is great
by kimtheo on 2020/05/06 19:44
However the ease in using them could be better. I use sheets often during my workouts. So after each set I enter the weight and reps completed. During the next set, my screen will black out and when I click it back on, the unpredictability of whether sheets will open up exactly where I was or if I need to click on the title page and then the page at the bottom of the screen again takes over. Time is spent scrolling and clicking on between the “numbers only” board and the letter board. It’s clunky. I don’t know what the answer is to make it better, I just know that it can be. Thank you!
Terrible design, but good app
by Monster👻 on 2018/12/07 04:09
I very much dislike the new design. The old one was sleek and professional, and I enjoyed its minimalism. The new one looks like someone hired their middle school nephew to make it in six months, he put it off until the last three days, and the result is this dumpster fire of a UI design. The new button animations make the app seem slower to react, every pop up and menu is huge and clunky, and there is way too much blank space. I don’t really use the word ‘hate’. I feel it’s too strong. But I feel I could pull it out and try it on, just this once. This update deserves it.
Hard to Open New Sheets
by User23848 on 2018/10/15 20:28
If you’ve already been working on a sheet, it will pull it from your drive. If you start a brand new sheet, it’s okay. I often see that it doesn’t send the sheet created in the app back to my drive for access on a computer. My biggest complaint is that I can’t open a sheet that someone else has started and shared a link for. If someone sends a link through a messaging app, it won’t open (or give the option) to open in the sheets app. Instead it prompts me to download the app, which I already have, and when it finally opens the app from the App Store it’s “forgotten” about the shared sheet I was trying to open.
Overall Good Business Tool
by Bnv2264 on 2018/03/11 03:35
I use this everyday and almost all day. If I didn’t have google sheets I wouldn’t be able to keep things organized in the business I run. I also love that you can see others and share with others. Such a great platform. On a side note- it does sometimes run slow and freeze with a large amount of people running a shared document. It sometimes makes me reload and refresh and I understand having to but wish it wasn’t so often. Also, at times it can overwrite others’ text. Like I said overall great program and so grateful!
Sheets is useful in so many ways!
by CHarr_ison on 2019/12/28 14:44
My whole working career I was a big Excel user. Now, in retirement, with lots of mobile devices and lots of time out and about, I use Sheets for all kinds of record keeping tasks and for fun things like automated scoring of my Canasta games with family & friends. It has so many useful functions and does all the core items that 99% of my spreadsheets need. And the web accessibility is one of its greatest features. So nice to be able to access my spreadsheets from anywhere on any device. Thanks Google!!
Nearly perfect as a mobile app, few bugs to address
by Alakran3 on 2018/01/10 22:23
I’m not sure if it’s an issue with my iPhone X or the app itself, but since getting the X I’ve been experiencing major slowdowns after applying color to cells. I recall it only happening once a long time ago on my 7+ but it’s more frequent on the X. A force close resolves the issue, but would be nice to do away with the issue entirely. Occasionally the copy/cut function doesn’t transfer the contents when swapping sheets, but that one’s not as annoying as the app slowing down entirely.
40 Day Sugar Fast
by Sassy.sandra on 2019/11/07 03:37
I LOVED this book. At first I thought it was going to be a harder way to do the fast than just daily emails. Then I realized it was as easy as emails and much more detailed than an email could ever be...more in-depth. I appreciate the way Wendy brought us daily to the throne of God to put HIM first by giving up sugar or whatever it was you needed to give up to make Him first in your life. I highly recommend this book as Wendy is transparent and real in sharing her life and offered real ways to dethrone ourselves and put Jesus first.

Description
Create, edit, and collaborate with others on spreadsheets from your iPod, iPhone, or iPad with the free Google sheets app. With Google Sheets you can: * Create new spreadsheets or edit any that were created on the web or on another device * Share spreadsheets and work together with others in the same spreadsheet at the same time * Get stuff done anytime -- even without an internet connection * Format cells, enter/sort data, view charts, insert formulas, use find/replace, and more * Never worry about losing your work -- everything is automatically saved as you type * Protect your spreadsheets with a 4-digit passcode * Open, edit, and save Excel files
Needs more functionality
by itbeanew1 on 2020/06/03 20:37
I’m no developer, but considering Sheets is web based in its full version, it seems odd that the iPad version is so neutered. My organization restricts G-Suite access via browser, so I am forced to use the app, or pull out my giant crappy corporate issued laptop. Considering the iPad now has trackpad support, perhaps implementing a touch optimized experience with reduced functionality and a trackpad optimized experience with full functionality would be an option. Maybe have it automatically switch between the two, depending on if a trackpad is discovered?

Cant open links in spreadsheets
by DarkZboy on 2020/06/02 08:10
The app seems to be able to recognize that it should render a hyperlink. But theres no way to navigate to a link upon clicking the cell.
Another top quality product from Google.

Editable links don’t work
by TheSorcerA on 2020/05/31 18:04
When someone places a link in a place that allows people to edit a usually uneditable document and you click on the editable version, it is still view only in the app.
Editing text in cells is a chore
by telephag on 2020/05/31 14:29
Use current and native text editing so I can navigate with a keyboard. The iPad experience is especially worthless.
Won’t let me use spreadsheets sent to me!
by ShadowsFall77 on 2020/05/30 18:17
I keep getting a message that says “get the app”. The thing is I HAVE THE APP!!! It leads me to the store where it say says “OPEN” - not “get” which means I HAVE the app. Then I’m led to a place where all my sheets that I made are stored. The sheet recently texted to me is not there. Sooooo I go back to the text and click on it and guess what? I’m met with the “get the app message again! I’m going in circles trying to use this app.

Overall nice, but visually super choppy
by Spydernights on 2020/05/29 21:49
Overall I like the Google ecosystem, and I love all of the desktop/browser versions. It is just the iPad version that is so visually choppy and below the quality of everything else. It is really surprising from Google.

Started at the bottom, now we here
by 👓Sunnania👓 on 2020/05/29 00:16
Here, as in, the middle of the cell, which is the exact place where I don’t want to start editing. If I have stuff in a cell and I want to change it, I’d prefer it if I had the cursor at the end of the writing so I can then move it to somewhere else On that note, can you please change how things users edit things written in cells? Using the select feature on the IPhone is such a hassle, so please design it so that’s it’s more intuitive and user-friendly
Yep. Just what I was looking for without the cost.
by Cor*Dawn*Yah on 2020/05/28 23:49
As an independent outside sales contractor this allows me to make little changes to spreadsheets and stay keeps from being chained to my laptop.

Loading
by Gexah95 on 2020/05/24 19:32
I went to load comments on a doc. It read there were no comments but to be the first one to. There was no option to add a comment. I left the page and opened the doc again. This time it would NOT load. It kept loading with the grey circle. Disconnected from WiFi even went to airplane mode to reconnect. Still the same thing for the next 3 attempts. After some time I decided to try again. All though it worked I became frustrated through this process. Since then there have been no software issues.

Annoying that You can’t edit without app on mobile
by MR. Phill 234 on 2020/05/22 19:53
The app is not bad, it is just annoying that I have to het the app in the first place. Is it really that hard on a mobile browser to make it so you can double tap a box to edit it so you don’t need the app for making small changes. You don’t need to include anything else, just the ability to add and remove text from boxes. It is very annoying to have to download a decent sized app just to write down 5-10 words on a spreadsheet, then delete the app to save space.
Worthless and frustrating
by Charlie Moody on 2020/05/22 19:32
If you’re looking for an app that will let you download and open spreadsheets on you iPad, THIS ISN’T IT. I’ve been working with computers and designing/implementing software on many platforms for 40 years, and this thing violates virtually EVERY rule I can think of for software functionality. This puts on par with Google’s “products” for iOS: doesn’t deserve even a single star. Save yourself the needless frustration.
No-cost, user-friendly, multi-purpose tool.
by Itmademerateit105 on 2020/05/22 16:22
Free, easy to use, and able to share with others to edit/view. I use it to organize, plan/schedule, and collect information. I cannot speak to its ability to work with quantitative data (ie. numbers, graphs, stats, etc), which I mention only b/c I know some will seek this app to do just that. I used Excel in college when working with large data sets; I didn’t know about Sheets back then. If you are looking for a FREE & easy to use tool to help you get organized and structured in your day to day activities, whether that’s managing your home, your business, your ministry, or your social media platform, etc., you’ll enjoy & appreciate this app. It’s also great to use as an archive where you can collect resources, contact info, etc.

Add Printing in landscape as an option. Google Docs allows it but Sheets does not give the option.
Hey, this app is cool.

App does not work well on iPhone
by Hdawggydog on 2020/05/20 09:02
Every time I come across an excel I want to edit it brings up the “to edit please download the app” response. I already have the app and it’s updated but it never takes me to the app so that I can easily edit documents. This has been a problem for a while and don’t know how to fix it. It always brings me to the App Store instead of the actual app. So it’s been useless.
Absolutely awful

Please make it easier to edit cells with a lot of text in them. Please also support opening multiple windows / instances on iPad, and support the iOS cursor / text manipulation system. Google needs to be a better iOS citizen. Thanks!

Cell gets pushed off screen
by Ike Leland on 2020/05/18 07:14
when the keyboard or num pad appears it pushes the entire sheet up...sometimes moving the selected cell off-screen. the desired behavior should be to move the sheet relative to the cell so it’s just above the keyboard/num pad.

Shared sheets editing
by RILEY WAYNE on 2020/05/14 16:46
The only reason why I got this app was to edit shared sheets and it doesn’t even work. I have to tell people to email me them instead and it’s so much of a hassle. This app is useless.
Love it!!!
by Doggie134 on 2020/05/14 15:01
To be honest I am more of an Apple fan but when it comes to Google sheets I just love it especially since it is free and has NO ads or in-app purchases just like on your computer.

by donniele11 on 2020/05/08 14:24
With Google Sheets, I can budget my income and expenses in a monthly format. I created an interactive program in a monthly format to see our family finances. This allows me to see current and projected future balances for any given day of the month. Throughout the month, cash levels in bank accounts are constantly changing. With my phone, I can see a spreadsheet for the whole month. ✅
Always crashes
by leafysphone on 2020/05/08 00:49

iPad Pro - no cursor when editing - BUG
by UberTuber on 2020/05/06 19:59
While editing in sheets I can no longer see the cursor and the apple pen 2 doesn’t seem to allow me to place the cursor where I want to edit text. Please fix. :)
The concept is great
by kimtheo on 2020/05/06 19:44
However the ease in using them could be better. I use sheets often during my workouts. So after each set I enter the weight and reps completed. During the next set, my screen will black out and when I click it back on, the unpredictability of whether sheets will open up exactly where I was or if I need to click on the title page and then the page at the bottom of the screen again takes over. Time is spent scrolling and clicking on between the “numbers only” board and the letter board. It’s clunky. I don’t know what the answer is to make it better, I just know that it can be. Thank you!
Love google sheets!

Difficult to use and not intuitive

Unable to Edit Shared Sheets
by Cristyjewelry on 2019/05/20 13:18
I try to go as mobile as possible, because opening up a computer all the time sometimes is just too much of a hassle or takes way too much time for something that should be done so quickly, such as signing up for a meeting time. Whenever I try to edit a spreadsheet for something like signing up, there’s always an annoying pop-up that says I need to download the app in order to edit at all. And even when I already have it downloaded, I still have to press the only “accept” button on that pop-up, which says “get the app”. It takes me back to the app store, where I then have to press “open”, and opens up to the Google Sheets app, but the sheets I would be trying to edit wouldn’t automatically come up. Checking the “Shared with Me” tab doesn’t do anything, trying the process over again doesn’t do anything, and nor does completely closing the App Store or Google Sheets app then starting the process over again do anything. This practically makes the Sheets app useless for me, because this is pretty much the only reason I need it. When using Sheets, I’m usually just trying to open someone else’s Sheets page, which they linked somewhere, and edit it rather than creating one myself.
It works ok
by jp430f1 on 2017/12/16 12:30
For a mobile app it works ok. A lot more functional on my computer and iPad than my iPhone X. As powerful as my cell phone is, I expect a bit more. Make all the functions available. I use this primarily for my monthly budget and it is difficult to change the functions of a box when all you can do it add numbers and not enter more complex calculations for each box. That is my only complaint besides the usual crashing and instability issues. It could flow a little easier and have the calculations as a ready part of setting up the spreadsheet instead of reinventing the wheel so to speak. Make it intuitive so people with out an mba can manage their budget by setting this up for themselves. I have done this for many people and my hope is that they follow through with it, but if I’m having a difficult time, I imagine others that just use my template, probably just give up if they can’t make easy changes with the mobile version because it never dawns on them to go back to the computer to make them.
Leery of The G word
by Somps on 2020/02/02 17:52
I used to love everything about Google. Now, because of the way they are treating people on the political spectrum, I don’t trust them. It’s hard to beat “free” and that’s how they snare us, but it does have some cool features. If u know how to use JavaScript, it will allow u to create some pretty good sheets. Like I said, just know that they capture all of your data and pray they don’t abuse it too much. I do find it a bit slow when I am trying to update a sheet from my iPhone when it’s an auto fill cell. For example, I have a cell with a drop down and one of the choices in the drop down is “yes” and after choosing it, it is supposed to fill the next cell with the time & date, and it does but it can take up to 30 seconds. You are wondering if it is working on it or not until it finally populates the cell. Some of that could be on the iPhone update but I think that it was happening before the iPhone update as well.
An Amazing App
by PricelessMe on 2020/03/23 14:14
Love, love, love this app!!! It is amazing and dependable. I like that its offline and I can use it whereever I am, even when traveling. I use it for our family budget and to pay of large bills and credit cards. It allow me to adjust the payment amounts when I want to pay a bill off early. I list my dates by each payment and I can see exactly when I'll have a bill paid off. It's been a real asset to our family. I don't have to worry about my data being locked up until I buy or update the subscription like what happened with another app, because its free. It was such an inconvenience. But this app has proven its value time and time again. I also like how I can plug in my formulas to show the interest rate and declining balance of my credit cards. I highly recommend to everyone to use it. My sincerest thanks to the maker of this exceptional app!!!
Love the app except lack of mobile details
by Singoffpitch on 2018/11/13 02:31
I love everything about the app except that it lacks the ability to access some of the settings that are available in the online version. I like to set cells to change color or configure running data based on what is entered and I can't adjust those settings in existing spreadsheets or add parameters to new sheets from the mobile app. Otherwise, I can do pretty much everything in the app I can do on the computer (and many things are easier from the app, which is why I'd really like full features available since I prefer using sheets from the app!!) and I'm a Google Sheets addict and president of the Sheets fan club! I've never had any problems with the app or lost data and it even saves my data automatically when I click out of the app without clicking the checkmark to save! Love Google Sheets!! 😁
No-cost, user-friendly, multi-purpose tool.
by Itmademerateit105 on 2020/05/22 16:22
Free, easy to use, and able to share with others to edit/view. I use it to organize, plan/schedule, and collect information. I cannot speak to its ability to work with quantitative data (ie. numbers, graphs, stats, etc), which I mention only b/c I know some will seek this app to do just that. I used Excel in college when working with large data sets; I didn’t know about Sheets back then. If you are looking for a FREE & easy to use tool to help you get organized and structured in your day to day activities, whether that’s managing your home, your business, your ministry, or your social media platform, etc., you’ll enjoy & appreciate this app. It’s also great to use as an archive where you can collect resources, contact info, etc.
Just needs to improve the interface dynamics.
by meu nickname on 2019/07/07 15:09
The features are great for my usage (stock portfolio track), it feels easier and more intuitive than excel. But the usage experience for me is still not there yet. The touch interface/dynamics still feels like a low quality app. It would only pan either horizontally or vertically and not both at the same time. When one cell is selected I’m not able to change to other sheet pages (excel and numbers managed to do it without any problem). It feels underdeveloped when compared to apple numbers usability. When I’m checking my sheets on the iPhone the actual area is so small compared to the other two apps also. It has a a great potential, in my opinion it just needs some fine tuning for touch versions. Desktop browser version works perfectly.
Google sheets rocks!
by Babu Sath on 2018/04/29 15:49
Google sheets my excel for private use. It is very reliable and works well. Especially for using from multiple devices from multiple locations. From a functionality perspective one thing puts Google Sheets above excel is its support for Unicode making it work well for non-English data. Once disappointment to date has been that it is either matching or lagging Microsoft Excel mostly. I say this without claiming to be an expert who has used its entire functionality, so take that with a pinch of salt. I would like to see Google team taking us in to a new world of functionality and capability - for example, seamless working between documents, databases, multimedia, and presentations. I would be glad to talk to Google Office team, if interested.
Love this App!!
by BryanE63 on 2017/10/03 14:28
Love this App!! Very convenient and I can access it on any device!! I have had past experiences where I had other apps for a while and without any warning at all from the Developer, the app was no longer available or was not compatible with the newest software so this left me High and Dry!! Very frustrating when you have to re-do all the information over again and find the info from many different places!! So the only advice I can give to the Developer of the Apps is to please let the people know when your no longer going to have the App available for us to retrieve our information so we can at least store it somewhere else so it’s not completely lost and we have to start everything over.
Freaking Love It
by Archer of Nor on 2019/10/11 02:42
I’m a bar manager and I use Google Sheets almost daily. I use it to do all of my liquor and beer orders (color coded, and some really nifty conditional formatting too). It makes all of my reps very happy with how organized it is! I also use it to do inventory on 3 bars and a huge storage area, profit margin sheets, employee phone lists etc... it’s incredibly useful to be able to pull up any information I need, immediately, on my phone. I used to do everything on Excel; printing all the pages out, writing all the counts down, going back into Excel to enter all the counts... Sheets let’s me do everything on my phone or iPad and autosums as I go. Not only does Sheets keep me nice and organized, it also makes orders and inventory go SO much faster.
Will be perfect with some fixes
by ltshep on 2018/05/19 17:14
Google drive is already my go-to for documents and spreadsheets (I don’t really use slideshows, but if I ever need to, it’s the default for me there too). I don’t edit my sheets too often on mobile, as it’s simply much easier to use the desktop site, but it’s great for viewing. The desktop site has it’s issues. Merged cells are impossible to move accurately in any direction but upward, zooming makes lines appear between and within cells that only disappear once reloaded, or zoomed back to 100%, but reappear upon scrolling. But, those aren’t present on the app. The only complaint I have for the app is the ease of use, but a mouse and keyboard will always be easier to use than just a touch-screen.
The future is here.
by USABlake on 2018/05/22 01:32
This and sheets on the computer browser will frustrate some people a bit if they are used to Excel. But I find sheets and drive to be light years ahead of whatever Microsoft is cooking up to compete. I can’t live without mobile access to my spreadsheets anymore. And holy crap, collaboration will never be the same. Microsoft has nothing on google. I cringe when people share an xls spreadsheet back and forth. Lol. Especially when it’s shared through google drive. Seriously saw that. Wow. Nice try, but you missed the fact that there is a better way. And so, so much easier. And you can actually work together instead of checking to see if the other person has it opened and not saved.
Poor functionality
by twoarmscollin on 2020/02/19 16:29
I can use command-a to select all of the text in a cell, but I cannot use command-i to make text italic. I cannot select and edit text within a cell, only in the bar on the bottom, thus making it incredibly inefficient. For someone doing qualitative research without access to Nvivo, spreadsheets are an important tool. While sheets on laptops and desktops is a viable rival for excel, and google’s ability for teams to simultaneously edit sheets is unchallenged, the mobile app makes it nearly impossible for me to get my work accomplished using my tablet with keyboard attachment. Why lug around my laptop when I can bring my brand new tablet that handles everything else so well? Google - get the functionality of this app on par with the sheets browser experience. Do not recommend using this app for mobile. Stick to the browser, or use a different program entirely.
Almost useless, and web versionnot accessible with an ipad
by Hunt.tr04 on 2019/11/21 18:30
I use google sheets for experiments as i am a freshman, i bring my iPad to school almost always, its my computer substitute, when its lab day and we to graph the information, i dread as the app is useless, i cannot edit a graph to add a trend line, and googles “helpful”advice is to use the web version, funny enough you cannot access the web version without a work around in ios that takes 3 minutes, thats safari, not chrome, it is impossible on chrome, after opening the web version, it tries to make you use the app, and constantly giving you a pop off that its not supported, and not able to format. it becomes slow and laggy as well. My advice to google is to not advertise an app that doesn't have some of the simplest features such as adding an equation or a trend line to a graph. And don't have a help center filled with incorrect information
This is truly pathetic
by snorkfire on 2019/05/03 00:55
Is it really just me that sees a dog slow app? I copied this review’s title from my departing comment within my effort to create a stock tracking spreadsheet. In what turned out to be my second effort at exploring using Sheets I found enormous difficulty overcoming the very long hang times and delays, so left that comment to myself to remind me in case I ever try it again. Add to that the fact that the stock query is missing a dividend/yield function on stocks, and we have arrived at the bizarre. That’s quite a miss. And add to that the inability to query a closing price on a date without forcing an 5 cell array construct and we have a mess. Apple does this in one cell with one date reference, folks. Well, I hate the long hanging “Calculating” times in the Numbers app, but Sheets is little better there for letting me edit while it thinks, and quite a bit more limited in overall dogginess and limitations. Disappointed.
Missing a couple of features
by EDAAmanda on 2017/11/29 22:53
Over all, it’s a really good app. It’s very convenient to have access to my spreadsheets on my phone, but I really wish the app had the same functionality with setting up equations as the desktop version does. It’s really annoying to have to enter my equation into each individual field and mark that I’m done before being able to move onto the next one. I’d like to be able to enter one, then click the corner and drag it into any additional fields I need. I am also displeased they took away requiring a passcode to enter the app. I have things in there I don’t want my daughter to see and she uses my phone sometimes. If it’s passcode protected, then I don’t have to worry.
Compatible with ease.
by Lobo325 on 2017/12/02 23:12
Needed an excel spreadsheet app and this is by far the better option at the moment. Unlike the other excel apps that you need to fork over money and yet have compatibility issues between the printer or even while using it, this one is quick and easy between devices. I use this for my clients for setting up their weekly workout schedule and emailing it without any hassle like crashing. Recently started using it for making “range-table” cards for F-Class long distance shooting at the range. Overall, I’m very pleased with the functionality. The only downside is that I wish I gotten this App sooner and had saved the money on the other mediocre version.
I really want to give it 5 stars
by bac2thaBasix on 2019/08/24 00:58
As the title shows, I really do want to give this app 5 stars but there is one small thing I wish this app would do that it does but MS excel app does. It’s leaving the last excel spreadsheet open that you had when ever you change apps. Like if I pull open a template and then go to another app on my phone I have to go back to the home page in sheets, then click the sheets file I was just in, then wait for the file to open. In MS word I literally can input data, change apps then go back to excel and I am brought automatically back to the last cell that I had just entered data. If google sheets does that, I’ll be more than happy to give them 5 stars.
Always Room For Improvement, but...
by BudgetWise101 on 2018/12/06 22:03
I’ve been using Google Sheets for years. I’m not an absolute expert but I’ve been able to create a comprehensive Google Sheets financial workbook to chart my family and business finances as well as a product inventory workbook. My greatest of challenges has to do with knowing how to use Google Sheets effectively on different devices. I work with them on my messed up Pixel XL phone (that keeps rebooting daily), iPhones, iPads (large and small), and my Windows desktop. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find tutorials to assist me in accomplishing functions for my product inventory workbook that I see others achieving. If you know of resources that would help certainly let me know.
Worst Google app
by Ericanii on 2018/12/21 17:25
Nearly impossible to use. I use fairly large sheets to keep track of my projects. I was trying to update one today on my iPad and I had to re-enter the values on nearly every changed cell TWICE because either it would glitch or not type as I was typing. I also use a sheet that updates based on a sheet of a friend of mine's and in the sheet app it just DOESN'T work at all. I have to look at it in the browser. But you can't edit sheets in the browser on chrome for some reason??????? Drive site crashed like 5 times trying to just open a sheet on chrome so I can edit it. Sheet would not update with new values from my friends sheet in the app. I am fully engrained in the Google ecosystem for all my easy documentation storage but sheets on iPad is by far the WORST Google app I have ever used to the point I'm here complaining. It just doesn't work.
Very good - but Google could make it super
by GoodOldMonkey on 2020/01/02 04:35
This app has amazing capabilities, and a few silly defects. + You can share full-featured spreadsheets in real time. On my iPhone I can correct data right next to the cell my niece is editing on a Windows desktop hundreds of miles away. + Really powerful: even on the mobile version you can create SQL-like queries of spreadsheet or external data, and useful charts. + Super easy data input from Google forms for repetitive stuff. - Crashes pretty often. - Some major browser-version features — edit-triggered routines, for example, and modifying protection — aren’t available on the mobile version. - Doesn't tell you when it's still busy downloading or calculating. A big spreadsheet can take several minutes to load and calculate, and you may meanwhile jump to some wrong decisions. - Doesn't keep track of where you were when you reopen a workbook. If you were looking at row 3323 on Sheet Four, navigating back is a non-trivial pain in the tail.
Fixed income
by jmy81 on 2019/10/12 00:23
I am a 57 year old man and have been disabled since 2008 and am on an income which is less than half of what I was making at the plant where I worked, didn’t get check for 2 years, lost one of my vehicles, went thru savings and still had to beg for food, almost lost my house and 6 acres, worked with loan company and kept it. My wife is also disabled, I cannot spend money I don’t have , I’m an ole country boy in Tennessee and I had pride up until all money was gone and eating canned corn only for supper and had to swallow my pride and beg for food, so don’t lecture me about a budget, you’re eating lobsters, steaks and shrimp, drinking wine and I’m eating wild rabbits, squirrels and white tail deer.
It doesn’t work when it should
by ZharloMang on 2019/11/22 20:26
I have been sent a google Sheet to edit with peers. The site constantly has the pop-up stating (get google sheets to make edits) or such. I have the app. And it it’s both impossible to open directly from the sheet, or opening it an internet browser doesn’t allow me to open it in sheets. Essentially I can access it without first downloading into my phone, then re-opening. It also does not show up in my recent history. I would say this is exactly what the app needs to do for a mobile app, is cross opening or at least for the option to open in Sheets is available. It isn’t. At the very least it should be able to know I have the app instead of advertising to me to download, and open up the app itself, instead of the App Store. So poor in the final product’s function.
Amazing FREE program!
by Bluswept on 2017/10/10 14:16
If college taught me anything, it’s that Google’s FREE alternatives to Microsoft Office programs are AMAZING. It’s not that there’s more features, it’s simply the simplicity. I don’t need to be an advanced programmer in order to figure out how to do things within Sheets. Even if I don’t know, a quick google search results in a very simple step by step guide by google that cuts right to the chase. It’s easy to collaborate, too. Simply add the person/people’s email address(es) and they’ll be sent a link that will let them access the sheet, and you can give them specific permissions, or you can just create a shareable link.
Does everything I need
by dglana on 2017/10/29 17:33
This app is great! It allows me to read and edit anything that I have created in Google sheets online. It doesn't have the functionality that the online program on the phone but it still works well to allow me to do what I need to do. When computers are not available this app is a lifesaver. I have one thing to note. When printing a spreadsheet sometimes it will try to make it fit on one page and I can't alter that direction, making the data minuscule. Biggest issue is when I want to search for data. The search function does not do all I would like it to do. Hope that issue is fixed soon.
Good for when you’re in a pinch
by Bigbadserrao on 2017/12/02 18:31
Of all the concepts to survive the desktop to mobile shift in our computing lives, none of them make less sense to me than trying to create spreadsheets on a touch screen. It’s just a task that benefits from the percussion of a mouse and the wide screens of desktop machines so much. Yet, google sheets tries to get this right and mostly succeeds. You’re still going to make lots of errors and be frustrated by the nested menus of settings but the tight integration with google drive, impressive feature set and collaborative capabilities makes this a great solution for minor spreadsheet edits and reference.
Excellent spreadsheet app for when one is on the go!
by Scott Kern on 2018/02/06 11:58
Full spreadsheet functionality from one’s smartphone, with access to all spreadsheet files (“Google Sheets”) which one has saved on Google Drive. Contrary to another review, which stated that only numbers could be edited and complex formulas could not be altered, this app allows any desired change to be made to each cell, just the same as from a desktop or laptop computer’s Google Sheets web interface. Possibly the other reviewer did not notice that toggling between numbers and letters is possible when editing each cell!
Wish I could edit from links people send me
by micste6643 on 2020/03/17 16:41
I commonly will be sent a link to google sheets from someone and when I select it, it’s goes to a read-only view in a browser saying that I should open it in the app to edit. When I follow the given links to download/open the app, it doesn’t take me to the sheet that I originally linked from. In addition, there is no easy way to find a link to an editable sheet. Seems to defeat the purpose of having google sheet links and my ability to collaborate with others. When you finally can get into the app and edit a sheet, it’s a good product. Just awful for any sort of mobile use without being able to share easily.
Love that I can access my spreadsheets on any device, but editing is buggy on iPhone
by TechnoCritic on 2018/12/29 18:12
It’s awesome to be able to access my spreadsheets anywhere, anytime. I’ve completely converted all of my personal spreadsheets to Google Sheets. My only complaint is, editing spreadsheets on the phone is cumbersome, especially when editing a cell that contains a function. After placing my cursor at the point where I want to type, the contents of the edit field are moved so that the cursor is at the far left edge of the field. As I type, the cursor stays in this location, meaning that I can’t see what I’m typing as I type it. This seems to be a bug in the form field control. Wish this could be fixed.
Works Very Well! (Especially for business)
by GabbyDatGamer (YouTube) on 2018/01/12 03:32
This works great for my business! It helps to organize what has and what hasn’t happened. It also helps to keep track of money sums, payments, bills, and more! Very helpful and recommended for businesses. Since on iOS, it has made life so much easier than just on PC’s. Though, it would be better if it didn’t run on any sort of internet connection. When away on business, and you have no connection, it can make it hard for me to organize it. In the end, it can make a great organizer, and a great tool. Thanks!, GDG
Where’s the AutoSum?
by Gavins_bat_girl on 2019/12/19 20:13
One thing I loved about Excel is that the Auto Sum function worked. The reason why that was nice is for what I do, there may or may not be a value in a certain cell and it would add up each existing value in a column. Even if the line item was deleted, it wouldn’t return an #error message. The reason I prefer google sheets, however, is that it’s free; whereas, in Excel, I had to pay for a subscription to edit the document. That and the app told me I didn’t have a subscription, but when I tried resubscribing, it told me I already had one. 🤪 So... my business is on hold until I can figure out which spreadsheet to use.
Good app
by MikeerdiGames9972 on 2018/05/02 22:07
By far more of a google fan than apple, (even though I have an iPad) and really enjoy having my google spreadsheets and other stuff on my iPad. When you use the mobile version of google’s apps, you still get all of the main features of the desktop version. Google does good at incorporating all the desktop features into the mobile app, while it is still extremely easy to use. Sometimes I even prefer the mobile app instead, because of its easy-to-use interface, and most of the desktop features are still there.
Great for wedding guest lists, other collaborations
by Wwndyyyy on 2017/11/04 18:00
This is so much safer, easier and better than sending a spreadsheet around to many people and trying to keep up with the current, correct version. It alerts you when others make changes and you can see every single change (and who made it)back to the beginning of the document. You literally cannot f this thing up. Do I wish sometimes it had full excel functionality? Of course - but that's like saying I wish horses could fly - it would be optimal but it's not part of the design :)
GREAT App that Synchs to All my Devices!
by Ekgpress on 2018/02/22 15:29
I love this App. It allows me to make additions to any device of mine that I might be using (computer; iphone; ipad). I primarily use Sheets for language study — and what is great about it, is that there is never confusion, even when mixing 2 different alphabets (ie, Hebrew has it’s own alphabet that goes from right-to-left, which is opposite to that for English). It takes a little getting used to re learning how to alter settings on an ipad — but once you learn this, it becomes VERY easy to customize any list exactly the way you want it — so I LOVE this app! Thank you!
Cheaper and more secure than network attached storage
by MurrayMM on 2019/04/10 01:14
Given that most Network Attached Storage boxes are too easily hacked, I cannot justify the cost of replacing my 12 year old NAS at home. The Google drive with Docs and Sheets is far more secure and cost effective for the long term. I would have given Sheets 5 stars except for my continued frustration that it does not come back to where I left off. Having to scroll down hundreds of lines every time is a waste of my time. Other than having to learn the new formatting commands, I am very happy with Sheets. P.S. I was using DecCalc in the 1970s and Lotus 123 in the 1980s. I have written hundreds of spreadsheets.
Difference between version on Mac
by CaboCarl on 2019/04/12 20:14
I 100% like both versions, but would like the iPad version to work the same way when changing a cell formula or data. The Mac deletes the entire data when you start to change the data so you don’t have to delete each digit, whereas the iPad version just adds it onto what was there. Also when you access a formula in a cell, if you don’t enter each cell you come to with another enter, it creates strange formulas instead of leaving them as they were. Mac version doesn’t do that and is preferred.
Versatile
by SD_Gringo on 2017/10/27 18:39
I use this for so many things - handy to use between my laptop and iPhone. More than one of us can edit the worksheets at the same time. I use it to track finances, a daily plan/schedule for my move from one state to another, a log of test results and actions I take to maintain my pool that I can reference at the store, a roster and schedule for coordinating volunteer sports activities, vacation plans I can reference on the go, a noble to do list that my wife and I can share, and tracking the family budget. It is not as powerful as MS Excel, but plenty useful for what I need.
Good for school
by Ariana Solis on 2019/07/29 18:25
I have been using google sheets for my college career. I installed good sheets and docs on my iPad, iPhone and log in online at home through my computer. The eat part is that everything uploads and refreshed in seconds and does it in all devices I am using. I love that I can work on things through my phone when ever I need it and when I get home I continue my work online through my iPad. When I need to make final touches and print I use my laptop. Google sheets and docs are amazing for a college student when working and going to school. I can’t complain. LOVE IT!
Good usage, bad implementation
by MinecraftRocks! on 2019/06/25 16:22
Don’t get me wrong, I love the app and use it all the time. However when I get a link to a spreadsheet or have to access it via a browser, it does not recognize the app is downloaded, requests me to go to the App Store to download it despite already having it, and continues the loop, no matter what kind of loophole I try to use, it requires me to “download” an already downloaded app and does not recognize that it has been opened by my account despite having logged in via browser and opening up the link. That is probably the biggest reason I may have to delete the app because of how frequent and important these links are.
Great app for my needs
by Texwad on 2017/10/30 03:27
Pros-This app has made my life really easy being able to track several metrics on all of my devices. When I am on the go I can update from my phone or tablet and then once I’m home or at the office, I can continue to update, analyze, then print once ready. Cons- Wish that it would open to the last cell modified. One spreadsheet that I use has over 15,000 rows and I have to scroll to the bottom to get to the new data and update which takes some time. It would be nice to have it open where I left off.
Everything you would expect
by Sir Amelius on 2018/03/01 11:38
Definitely like the app. Interface is intuitive. Does everything the average user would want it to do. However, I give it 4 stars because it won’t run script. I’ve created buttons that when clicked, causes a cell to increase in value by x amount or decrease by the same amount; the same buttons, when you open the file in the app, do not function in the same way. Instead it treats the buttons as just images. You can’t access script editor on this app either. Would be cool if you could allow the app to run custom scripts and create/edit script.
Worst app ever!
by KernNBurn on 2018/12/15 00:51
Google sheets is the worst app ever! My life was easy until I downloaded google sheets. Not only does it mess up the split window on my iPad Pro, it even messed up google drive. Using google sheets is the equivalent of putting another hole in my head! The app it works worst with is google drive! How does that make sense? Google drive is easily navigated until sheets or other apps are also introduced, then navigating them becomes less discernible than interstate spaghetti bowls. Google sheets is so horrible I’m going to ditch google drive and every other app google offers. All any of them do is get in the way! Google maps is the second worst! Wait, I forgot about Chrome, what a computer overloading pile of dog crap! The world will be a better place when google is removed from it!
The concept is great
by kimtheo on 2020/05/06 19:44
However the ease in using them could be better. I use sheets often during my workouts. So after each set I enter the weight and reps completed. During the next set, my screen will black out and when I click it back on, the unpredictability of whether sheets will open up exactly where I was or if I need to click on the title page and then the page at the bottom of the screen again takes over. Time is spent scrolling and clicking on between the “numbers only” board and the letter board. It’s clunky. I don’t know what the answer is to make it better, I just know that it can be. Thank you!
Terrible design, but good app
by Monster👻 on 2018/12/07 04:09
I very much dislike the new design. The old one was sleek and professional, and I enjoyed its minimalism. The new one looks like someone hired their middle school nephew to make it in six months, he put it off until the last three days, and the result is this dumpster fire of a UI design. The new button animations make the app seem slower to react, every pop up and menu is huge and clunky, and there is way too much blank space. I don’t really use the word ‘hate’. I feel it’s too strong. But I feel I could pull it out and try it on, just this once. This update deserves it.
Hard to Open New Sheets
by User23848 on 2018/10/15 20:28
If you’ve already been working on a sheet, it will pull it from your drive. If you start a brand new sheet, it’s okay. I often see that it doesn’t send the sheet created in the app back to my drive for access on a computer. My biggest complaint is that I can’t open a sheet that someone else has started and shared a link for. If someone sends a link through a messaging app, it won’t open (or give the option) to open in the sheets app. Instead it prompts me to download the app, which I already have, and when it finally opens the app from the App Store it’s “forgotten” about the shared sheet I was trying to open.
Overall Good Business Tool
by Bnv2264 on 2018/03/11 03:35
I use this everyday and almost all day. If I didn’t have google sheets I wouldn’t be able to keep things organized in the business I run. I also love that you can see others and share with others. Such a great platform. On a side note- it does sometimes run slow and freeze with a large amount of people running a shared document. It sometimes makes me reload and refresh and I understand having to but wish it wasn’t so often. Also, at times it can overwrite others’ text. Like I said overall great program and so grateful!
Sheets is useful in so many ways!
by CHarr_ison on 2019/12/28 14:44
My whole working career I was a big Excel user. Now, in retirement, with lots of mobile devices and lots of time out and about, I use Sheets for all kinds of record keeping tasks and for fun things like automated scoring of my Canasta games with family & friends. It has so many useful functions and does all the core items that 99% of my spreadsheets need. And the web accessibility is one of its greatest features. So nice to be able to access my spreadsheets from anywhere on any device. Thanks Google!!
Nearly perfect as a mobile app, few bugs to address
by Alakran3 on 2018/01/10 22:23
I’m not sure if it’s an issue with my iPhone X or the app itself, but since getting the X I’ve been experiencing major slowdowns after applying color to cells. I recall it only happening once a long time ago on my 7+ but it’s more frequent on the X. A force close resolves the issue, but would be nice to do away with the issue entirely. Occasionally the copy/cut function doesn’t transfer the contents when swapping sheets, but that one’s not as annoying as the app slowing down entirely.
40 Day Sugar Fast

I LOVED this book. At first I thought it was going to be a harder way to do the fast than just daily emails. Then I realized it was as easy as emails and much more detailed than an email could ever be...more in-depth. I appreciate the way Wendy brought us daily to the throne of God to put HIM first by giving up sugar or whatever it was you needed to give up to make Him first in your life. I highly recommend this book as Wendy is transparent and real in sharing her life and offered real ways to dethrone ourselves and put Jesus first.
