There is still no line break
by Johnson4o on 2019/04/22 07:45
You still cannot add line breaks in your cells. What kind of lazy dimwitted programing team cannot code the two lines it would take to add this dealbreaking feature. I mean, how hard is it to comprehend that people need this. This software is as much of a tool as a plastic hammer you give to a toddler so they may not hurt themselves. Unbelievable.
A must have.

Computes like any other spreadsheet app. Creating figures is awful
by JDABM on 2019/04/18 22:55
Works well if all you need to do is compute , but the editing for charts and graphs is extremely limited. Nearly useless.

Spreadsheets are great
by IsaacGarcia12 on 2019/04/16 14:32
Sheets is an easy-to-use app that works great for any circumstance, whether that be organizing a schedule or keeping track of finances. The formatting is simple and user-friendly. Some functions are removed in the mobile app that are available in the desktop app but overall, it’s a great app for anyone who wishes to stay organized in any area of their life.
Unable to remove
by rcamelleo on 2019/04/16 03:45
I’m not able to remove old forms. I’m also not the original creator of the form, it’s sent to me, so it may be that only the originator can remove them.
Still not showing spreadsheet
by MarLyE_314 on 2019/04/16 01:34
The main reason I use this is to track my workouts and not the file opens but the worksheet looks like all the cells are hidden. Other worksheets are fine and still reference the 'hidden' spreadsheet. I'm not the only one with this issue and it looks like it's a long standing bug. If the problem is going to be ignored, I guess I'll go back to Excel.

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.

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.
If you are trying to use a link to a spreadsheet this app is useless
by feliciathegoat71 on 2019/04/09 22:25
When I try to open a link to edit for a spreadsheet it suggests to download the app. You do that and the spreadsheet you were trying to reach becomes inaccessible. The only solution I had to this problem was to manually type in the link on a computer or email the link to yourself to be able to open on a computer. This app pisses me off more than any other app on my phone.

Totally unusable on iPad
by once_twice on 2019/04/08 08:09
With only few functions on iPad/iPhone version, I can barely create a sheet. I can make one, but I cannot make it the way I want. I can’t even do the cell auto-sizing (maybe I am too stupid or the app is too complicated to find functions that I want to use). Definitely, recommend MS Excel app.
Limited and clumsy
by Arvostelija on 2019/04/08 00:44
You get some functionality of the desktop version, enough to view sheets and do light additions, but that’s about it. Very limited when it comes to formatting, no tools to limit your cell count or remove gridlines for example.

by zachvivier on 2019/04/03 04:21
While I primarily use sheets to organize my own information and for university projects, it works well for many of the same purposes that excel does. Being the free alternative, sheets is a great online tool to use since you can swap between phone, computer, tablet, etc. seamlessly and collaborate like on Google Docs. On iPhone it has a fair user interface and does what you’d expect it to. There isn’t really anything you could improve upon on a mobile version of sheets.

Incompatible with iPad Pro 11”
by Vince_cbr600 on 2019/03/29 16:57
Google Sheets are practically useless within iOS. In my case, on an iPad Pro. Google has not made the following features available on the iPad version (they do, however, function on Android Tablets): -No Keyboard Shortcuts for Copy, Paste, or Fill Down. -No possibility for Paste Special (to paste a formula result as text). -GSheets crashes when attempting to resize column width. -Can’t copy and paste a table from Google Sheets into Gmail. From an engineer’s perspective the product is useless on the iPad.
Horrible on ios
by Akak71 on 2019/03/29 11:34
As much as i love using sheets on other platforms, it’s interface on ios is dysfunctional at best. Example: i want to enter time to track my blood sugar in a simple sheet. So, first day (second row) i make an entry 7:00 am. No formula, plain text. Next day when i try to enter the text under the column, next row, it takes it as 7:00:00 am or won’t let me edit; alphabets disappear from keyboard and only numerical values show up. Simple data entry is a headache!

easiest way to upload and share spreadsheets
by Mima-San on 2019/03/28 07:39
it seams easier to upload an excel to google sheet than an excel to an internet server. access is restricted to users you share with. compatibility less of an issue since no matter if user is on desktop or mobile windows or mac android or ipad/phone.

The rising giant in the history of document making
by jae2104 on 2019/03/24 10:55
Love the way it integrates the work with others. Also very simple to use and share with other people. Only thing it lacks is that when it prints with iPad it does not print accurately as it appears on the screen. WYSIWYG rendering is still in development in my opinion for printing. However, it is still an excellent alternative to Microsoft products and the gap is coming very close to the giant in the history of document making. Thank you so much for making this available and affordable for everyone~~!
Great free option
by MY OPINION - We all have one on 2019/03/24 06:26
I don’t use the spreadsheet like a mathematics expert, so I can’t share on numbers in columns — EXCEPT when I try to put numbers in columns and the app tries to convert them into something I didn’t type! Like dates, or money, or something I didn’t ask for. Take the “automated” feature out, and you’ve got something! I’m sorry that I don’t know how to turn automatic features off, and it’s annoying. I AM GLAD to be able to make a rough spreadsheet for names, addresses and such... or, a chart that can be cut/pasted into a power point ... YES, I try to move back and forth between Google and Microsoft products, ON MY APPLE DEVICES! YES, you guessed it... I have ADHD-I. But if anyone can MAKE IT WORK, it’s me! A great product for free! It’s Google’s FREE APPS, free e-mail, and FREE G-drive that keeps me coming back to learn more of what Google can do for me! 4 ⭐️ because I don’t like automated conversions without my permission.

By Google, but still good
by Lopid Jim Fibrizill on 2018/02/12 03:22
While it’s my natural instinct to be leery of trusting a company that proports itself to be altruistic in its relation with its clients; it remains hard to fault the company when it comes to their free line of productivity tools. Sheets is still the “poor-man’s” Excel. It has a much leaner featureset, a simplified interface, and some annoyingly useful widgets and extensions. Basically, it’s Excel for people who normally use Excel. People who are savvy enough to even know about Excel, tend to use it as a basic way of displaying and organizing data in tables, with some simple arithmetic formulas between cells. The really nitty-gritty features that make Excel so powerful are used by a tiny of fraction of people who are, themselves, a tiny fraction of the general, computer-using public. You can still make a good household budget with automated cells or a business proposal with some formula-based forecasting. If you are mad that can’t use seudo-SQL functions and set up batch processes for huge datasets, you’re probably looking at the wrong, free app.
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 2018/02/22 07:18
I used to live everything about Google. Now, because of the way you hey are treating people on the political spectrum, I don’t trust them. It’s hard to beat “free” and that’s how the snare is, 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.
Love Google Sheets
by Mayjeaa on 2018/02/18 22:41
I have gone PC free for 6 months now, and I replaced Quicken by creating my own program on Google Sheets, which I have nicknamed “Quickenish”. Works GREAT! It didn’t take very long for me to learn to migrate my Excel skills to Google Sheets. I have online stock quotes automatically pushed into cells from one book to another, and formulas push data from one sheet to another, and the whole system works remarkably well. I love that I can access from phone or IPad, as well as access offline when I am away from a network connection. I can even enter data offline and it will sync automatically next time I open with a network connection. My Quickenish has no categories or budget, but hey, it’s free! Worst con: slow to enter data after tabbing over a cell, but maybe that’s my devices? I use (and adore) Tecknet mini keyboard with my IPad mini.
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!! 😁
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.
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.

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.
All my work gone. Wish told was beta s/w
by MikeLMA on 2018/03/15 09:12
Adjusted column size (which never really worked right), but this time the blue line indicating the new column persisted while I did further edits. Saved, exited, reopened. Spreadsheet empty — Two months of work is gone. Scary. Data can’t be duplicated. I thought we were past the old PC trick of continuously needing to make copies to protect the data. With other spreadsheets I have lost my work when the device failed, which is why I switched to the “Google Sheets” distributed spreadsheet, but I never lost all my work because of bugs in the spreadsheet - now I have. Googles casual view of data loss means I need to go back to a real spreadsheet, and find another method to view from multiple devices.
👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾 So Many Problems 😡😭
by @davessuccess on 2017/09/24 01:12
Both google sheets and google docs really seem to not work with iOS. 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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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 :)
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 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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
Simplicity and functionality
by Peaceful summer on 2019/01/16 13:12
Glitch fixed - Thanks. Must have been temporary bug of some sort. Had written that “mathematical functions no longer work, AT ALL, within chart. Help!! Results are all kerflooey. Has app been hacked?” Original review - Love this free app (no ads.). Very intuitive, especially if you're a bit geeky. Very simple to make multiple small spreadsheets on one page, and perform simple calculations within them. Pages are enormous, with room for lots of side by side charts. Useful for keeping track of expenses, payments, accounts, taxes, in a manner that's useful for you, I.e. with columns and headings you want. On your own, if you're so inclined, you can create a functional checkbook and calendar - much better than any app's. Results are saved to your different iOS devices, so that you have access to them if you have only your phone with you. Thank you.
The rising giant in the history of document making
by jae2104 on 2019/03/24 10:55
Love the way it integrates the work with others. Also very simple to use and share with other people. Only thing it lacks is that when it prints with iPad it does not print accurately as it appears on the screen. WYSIWYG rendering is still in development in my opinion for printing. However, it is still an excellent alternative to Microsoft products and the gap is coming very close to the giant in the history of document making. Thank you so much for making this available and affordable for everyone~~!
Good, but Glitchy
by RedHen05 on 2018/06/08 20:26
I’m a music teacher and I use this app on my iPad and iPhone to maintain records on my students’ progress. For the most part I am happy with it because it is convenient, easy to access, and easy to use. However, the app has a tendency to crash from time to time and to freeze on a page—when this happens, the frozen page persists even after force closing the app several times. There’s also something a little clunky about the way it inputs text—it’s slow and randomly drops every few letters I type. I still think it’s a good app, but hope Google sorts out these glitches!
Great organizer and analyzer
by zachvivier on 2019/04/03 04:21
While I primarily use sheets to organize my own information and for university projects, it works well for many of the same purposes that excel does. Being the free alternative, sheets is a great online tool to use since you can swap between phone, computer, tablet, etc. seamlessly and collaborate like on Google Docs. On iPhone it has a fair user interface and does what you’d expect it to. There isn’t really anything you could improve upon on a mobile version of sheets.
Less redirecting please
by Rufilla on 2019/02/15 09:19
The app itself works great, but whenever I click on a link from an email or something it opens in Safari which then requires you to use the app, which doesn’t directly bring you to the app but to the App Store, and when you open the app from the App Store it goes to the homepage first where you then click the new file. It would be nice if there were a setting that would default open to the clicked file in Sheets directly.
Love it but some issues
by Mr. O'Riley on 2018/09/09 21:38
I love the google workspace, docs, sheets, slides, etc... however at the moment it has a couple hitches, especially because I use it a lot for classwork, and we are permitted to use iPads in class. So in some instances, computer only features such as deleting cells and customization of graphs would make completing assignments much easier if they were implemented into the app. Also, at the moment I am unable to open some of my documents on my device as it says the app needs to be updated, yet my app is up to date.
Convenient!
by Raerae222222 on 2018/08/28 14:11
I enjoy using sheets for anything that benefits from sharing for whatever reason. It makes it easy and super convenient to have an editable copy on all my devices! Plus, now my husband has no excuses. If it’s something he should see or keep track of as well, I just share it, and he can see/edit it also! However, I think my favorite feature is the formatting of alternating colors per line. I need things, pretty, neat, and organized, and this accomplishes all 3!
Best App Ever
by Ltd52 on 2018/08/31 02:15
I was a big fan of Excel, until my desktop died and I lost everything. I do a lot of volunteer work and I had several people asking me for information that I no longer had. I heard about Google Sheets and my life has been much simpler. I recently had my laptop crash and I wasn't freaking out, because I didn't lose any spreadsheets or documents. They were all safe and sound. If I can't attend a meeting I just share my information with all the attendees. I'm in love!!❤️❤️
This is a Great Product
by 133128677 on 2018/01/16 15:52
I use to work with Excel daily at work. I have been retired for a few years and started using Google sheets. This program helps me keep track of all the things I did before but is a lot easier to use. It works with all my devices. I use it seamlessly between an iPad, a MacBook Air, Asus Chromebook and a Pc. I can use any device to edited my spreadsheets and this is very convenient. I feel this program is indispensable for my workflow and would be lost without it.
Missing ALL KINDs of capabilities the web app has
by A. Consultant on 2018/06/01 21:00
This app, like all of Google’s iOS apps I’ve tried, is missing lots of features that the web app has—even basics like the ability to type special characters. The interface is difficult to use, many features and functions are missing, and interactions are difficult. Simple actions like copy/paste and selecting cells don’t work well or even reliably. From any other company this app would be an embarrassment, but how else can you use Sheets on iPad? You’re stuck with Google’s poorly designed, poorly implemented, poorly supported app.
Very good except editing text cell
by Hikercycler on 2018/03/20 19:43
This is a very good app with lots of nice features. Only problem I have found is a bug in the editing of a cell formatted for wrapped text. If you are editing at the end of a text cell's content, no problem. But if you edit in the middle of a cell there is a problem. If you use glide typing the caps comes on after every word. If you type individual letters the caps comes on after every letter. This is obviously a bus and I have reported as such in the past, but it has not been addressed yet. Dennis
Great free option
by MY OPINION - We all have one on 2019/03/24 06:26
I don’t use the spreadsheet like a mathematics expert, so I can’t share on numbers in columns — EXCEPT when I try to put numbers in columns and the app tries to convert them into something I didn’t type! Like dates, or money, or something I didn’t ask for. Take the “automated” feature out, and you’ve got something! I’m sorry that I don’t know how to turn automatic features off, and it’s annoying. I AM GLAD to be able to make a rough spreadsheet for names, addresses and such... or, a chart that can be cut/pasted into a power point ... YES, I try to move back and forth between Google and Microsoft products, ON MY APPLE DEVICES! YES, you guessed it... I have ADHD-I. But if anyone can MAKE IT WORK, it’s me! A great product for free! It’s Google’s FREE APPS, free e-mail, and FREE G-drive that keeps me coming back to learn more of what Google can do for me! 4 ⭐️ because I don’t like automated conversions without my permission.
You can not go wrong
by Suhani12 on 2018/02/27 00:31
Anything from Google is great. Every program I’ve used from them is bullet proof and and they listen to their users. I have been working with software for the past 30 years. You can look long and hard but we very hard to find a company that cares as much as Google. The app is very simple and it has been upgraded several times and has never crashed in the years I’ve used it. Google sheets is outstanding.
Quasi-Functional
by R Patwari on 2017/11/23 00:49
Google Sheets (and the rest of their office products) work very well through a browser on MacOS, however with each update Google seems to be crippling the iOS versions (Sheets, Docs, Slides). Cut-and-paste with keyboard shortcuts used to work, now don't (and haven't been fixed despite several updates). Entering text in a spreadsheet cell bounces the screen distractingly up and down and then erases the contents in the cell fairly consistently. Features disappear from one version to the next. Unfortunately, now I cannot use iOS Chrome to access documents (I could before). I can't imagine the smart and talented engineers at Google are crippling their own iOS app, but it sure seems like it.
GREAT APP!
by Smpa225 on 2017/11/18 02:35
This app is fantastic! I use it to keep track of my exercise, my calories and food throughout the day. I can see my progress on any of my devices from my phone, to my iPad, to my computer it is great. It is simple and easy to use and quick to pick up. I wish I could use my Apple Pencil to write quicker but it is still fantastic. I would also like to see it easier to switch from page to page on my Ipad. It is a phenomenal app for school, work projects and even person uses. I would highly recommend.

There is still no line break
by Johnson4o on 2019/04/22 07:45
You still cannot add line breaks in your cells. What kind of lazy dimwitted programing team cannot code the two lines it would take to add this dealbreaking feature. I mean, how hard is it to comprehend that people need this. This software is as much of a tool as a plastic hammer you give to a toddler so they may not hurt themselves. Unbelievable.
A must have.
by Tomcat-2011 on 2019/04/22 05:25
Great app, easy to use and great UI. Google products just get better with each update.

Scrolling is weird

Computes like any other spreadsheet app. Creating figures is awful

Works well if all you need to do is compute , but the editing for charts and graphs is extremely limited. Nearly useless.

Spreadsheets are great
by IsaacGarcia12 on 2019/04/16 14:32
Sheets is an easy-to-use app that works great for any circumstance, whether that be organizing a schedule or keeping track of finances. The formatting is simple and user-friendly. Some functions are removed in the mobile app that are available in the desktop app but overall, it’s a great app for anyone who wishes to stay organized in any area of their life.
Unable to remove
by rcamelleo on 2019/04/16 03:45
I’m not able to remove old forms. I’m also not the original creator of the form, it’s sent to me, so it may be that only the originator can remove them.
Still not showing spreadsheet
by MarLyE_314 on 2019/04/16 01:34
The main reason I use this is to track my workouts and not the file opens but the worksheet looks like all the cells are hidden. Other worksheets are fine and still reference the 'hidden' spreadsheet. I'm not the only one with this issue and it looks like it's a long standing bug. If the problem is going to be ignored, I guess I'll go back to Excel.

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.

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.
If you are trying to use a link to a spreadsheet this app is useless
by feliciathegoat71 on 2019/04/09 22:25
When I try to open a link to edit for a spreadsheet it suggests to download the app. You do that and the spreadsheet you were trying to reach becomes inaccessible. The only solution I had to this problem was to manually type in the link on a computer or email the link to yourself to be able to open on a computer. This app pisses me off more than any other app on my phone.

Totally unusable on iPad
by once_twice on 2019/04/08 08:09
With only few functions on iPad/iPhone version, I can barely create a sheet. I can make one, but I cannot make it the way I want. I can’t even do the cell auto-sizing (maybe I am too stupid or the app is too complicated to find functions that I want to use). Definitely, recommend MS Excel app.
Limited and clumsy
by Arvostelija on 2019/04/08 00:44
You get some functionality of the desktop version, enough to view sheets and do light additions, but that’s about it. Very limited when it comes to formatting, no tools to limit your cell count or remove gridlines for example.

While I primarily use sheets to organize my own information and for university projects, it works well for many of the same purposes that excel does. Being the free alternative, sheets is a great online tool to use since you can swap between phone, computer, tablet, etc. seamlessly and collaborate like on Google Docs. On iPhone it has a fair user interface and does what you’d expect it to. There isn’t really anything you could improve upon on a mobile version of sheets.

Incompatible with iPad Pro 11”
by Vince_cbr600 on 2019/03/29 16:57
Google Sheets are practically useless within iOS. In my case, on an iPad Pro. Google has not made the following features available on the iPad version (they do, however, function on Android Tablets): -No Keyboard Shortcuts for Copy, Paste, or Fill Down. -No possibility for Paste Special (to paste a formula result as text). -GSheets crashes when attempting to resize column width. -Can’t copy and paste a table from Google Sheets into Gmail. From an engineer’s perspective the product is useless on the iPad.
Horrible on ios
by Akak71 on 2019/03/29 11:34
As much as i love using sheets on other platforms, it’s interface on ios is dysfunctional at best. Example: i want to enter time to track my blood sugar in a simple sheet. So, first day (second row) i make an entry 7:00 am. No formula, plain text. Next day when i try to enter the text under the column, next row, it takes it as 7:00:00 am or won’t let me edit; alphabets disappear from keyboard and only numerical values show up. Simple data entry is a headache!

The rising giant in the history of document making
by jae2104 on 2019/03/24 10:55
Love the way it integrates the work with others. Also very simple to use and share with other people. Only thing it lacks is that when it prints with iPad it does not print accurately as it appears on the screen. WYSIWYG rendering is still in development in my opinion for printing. However, it is still an excellent alternative to Microsoft products and the gap is coming very close to the giant in the history of document making. Thank you so much for making this available and affordable for everyone~~!
Great free option
by MY OPINION - We all have one on 2019/03/24 06:26
I don’t use the spreadsheet like a mathematics expert, so I can’t share on numbers in columns — EXCEPT when I try to put numbers in columns and the app tries to convert them into something I didn’t type! Like dates, or money, or something I didn’t ask for. Take the “automated” feature out, and you’ve got something! I’m sorry that I don’t know how to turn automatic features off, and it’s annoying. I AM GLAD to be able to make a rough spreadsheet for names, addresses and such... or, a chart that can be cut/pasted into a power point ... YES, I try to move back and forth between Google and Microsoft products, ON MY APPLE DEVICES! YES, you guessed it... I have ADHD-I. But if anyone can MAKE IT WORK, it’s me! A great product for free! It’s Google’s FREE APPS, free e-mail, and FREE G-drive that keeps me coming back to learn more of what Google can do for me! 4 ⭐️ because I don’t like automated conversions without my permission.

by Lopid Jim Fibrizill on 2018/02/12 03:22
While it’s my natural instinct to be leery of trusting a company that proports itself to be altruistic in its relation with its clients; it remains hard to fault the company when it comes to their free line of productivity tools. Sheets is still the “poor-man’s” Excel. It has a much leaner featureset, a simplified interface, and some annoyingly useful widgets and extensions. Basically, it’s Excel for people who normally use Excel. People who are savvy enough to even know about Excel, tend to use it as a basic way of displaying and organizing data in tables, with some simple arithmetic formulas between cells. The really nitty-gritty features that make Excel so powerful are used by a tiny of fraction of people who are, themselves, a tiny fraction of the general, computer-using public. You can still make a good household budget with automated cells or a business proposal with some formula-based forecasting. If you are mad that can’t use seudo-SQL functions and set up batch processes for huge datasets, you’re probably looking at the wrong, free app.
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 2018/02/22 07:18
I used to live everything about Google. Now, because of the way you hey are treating people on the political spectrum, I don’t trust them. It’s hard to beat “free” and that’s how the snare is, 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.
Love Google Sheets
by Mayjeaa on 2018/02/18 22:41
I have gone PC free for 6 months now, and I replaced Quicken by creating my own program on Google Sheets, which I have nicknamed “Quickenish”. Works GREAT! It didn’t take very long for me to learn to migrate my Excel skills to Google Sheets. I have online stock quotes automatically pushed into cells from one book to another, and formulas push data from one sheet to another, and the whole system works remarkably well. I love that I can access from phone or IPad, as well as access offline when I am away from a network connection. I can even enter data offline and it will sync automatically next time I open with a network connection. My Quickenish has no categories or budget, but hey, it’s free! Worst con: slow to enter data after tabbing over a cell, but maybe that’s my devices? I use (and adore) Tecknet mini keyboard with my IPad mini.
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!! 😁
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.
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.
All my work gone. Wish told was beta s/w
by MikeLMA on 2018/03/15 09:12
Adjusted column size (which never really worked right), but this time the blue line indicating the new column persisted while I did further edits. Saved, exited, reopened. Spreadsheet empty — Two months of work is gone. Scary. Data can’t be duplicated. I thought we were past the old PC trick of continuously needing to make copies to protect the data. With other spreadsheets I have lost my work when the device failed, which is why I switched to the “Google Sheets” distributed spreadsheet, but I never lost all my work because of bugs in the spreadsheet - now I have. Googles casual view of data loss means I need to go back to a real spreadsheet, and find another method to view from multiple devices.
👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾 So Many Problems 😡😭
by @davessuccess on 2017/09/24 01:12
Both google sheets and google docs really seem to not work with iOS. 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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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 :)
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 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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
Simplicity and functionality
by Peaceful summer on 2019/01/16 13:12
Glitch fixed - Thanks. Must have been temporary bug of some sort. Had written that “mathematical functions no longer work, AT ALL, within chart. Help!! Results are all kerflooey. Has app been hacked?” Original review - Love this free app (no ads.). Very intuitive, especially if you're a bit geeky. Very simple to make multiple small spreadsheets on one page, and perform simple calculations within them. Pages are enormous, with room for lots of side by side charts. Useful for keeping track of expenses, payments, accounts, taxes, in a manner that's useful for you, I.e. with columns and headings you want. On your own, if you're so inclined, you can create a functional checkbook and calendar - much better than any app's. Results are saved to your different iOS devices, so that you have access to them if you have only your phone with you. Thank you.
The rising giant in the history of document making
by jae2104 on 2019/03/24 10:55
Love the way it integrates the work with others. Also very simple to use and share with other people. Only thing it lacks is that when it prints with iPad it does not print accurately as it appears on the screen. WYSIWYG rendering is still in development in my opinion for printing. However, it is still an excellent alternative to Microsoft products and the gap is coming very close to the giant in the history of document making. Thank you so much for making this available and affordable for everyone~~!
Good, but Glitchy
by RedHen05 on 2018/06/08 20:26
I’m a music teacher and I use this app on my iPad and iPhone to maintain records on my students’ progress. For the most part I am happy with it because it is convenient, easy to access, and easy to use. However, the app has a tendency to crash from time to time and to freeze on a page—when this happens, the frozen page persists even after force closing the app several times. There’s also something a little clunky about the way it inputs text—it’s slow and randomly drops every few letters I type. I still think it’s a good app, but hope Google sorts out these glitches!
Great organizer and analyzer
by zachvivier on 2019/04/03 04:21
While I primarily use sheets to organize my own information and for university projects, it works well for many of the same purposes that excel does. Being the free alternative, sheets is a great online tool to use since you can swap between phone, computer, tablet, etc. seamlessly and collaborate like on Google Docs. On iPhone it has a fair user interface and does what you’d expect it to. There isn’t really anything you could improve upon on a mobile version of sheets.
Less redirecting please
by Rufilla on 2019/02/15 09:19
The app itself works great, but whenever I click on a link from an email or something it opens in Safari which then requires you to use the app, which doesn’t directly bring you to the app but to the App Store, and when you open the app from the App Store it goes to the homepage first where you then click the new file. It would be nice if there were a setting that would default open to the clicked file in Sheets directly.
Love it but some issues
by Mr. O'Riley on 2018/09/09 21:38
I love the google workspace, docs, sheets, slides, etc... however at the moment it has a couple hitches, especially because I use it a lot for classwork, and we are permitted to use iPads in class. So in some instances, computer only features such as deleting cells and customization of graphs would make completing assignments much easier if they were implemented into the app. Also, at the moment I am unable to open some of my documents on my device as it says the app needs to be updated, yet my app is up to date.
Convenient!
by Raerae222222 on 2018/08/28 14:11
I enjoy using sheets for anything that benefits from sharing for whatever reason. It makes it easy and super convenient to have an editable copy on all my devices! Plus, now my husband has no excuses. If it’s something he should see or keep track of as well, I just share it, and he can see/edit it also! However, I think my favorite feature is the formatting of alternating colors per line. I need things, pretty, neat, and organized, and this accomplishes all 3!
Best App Ever
by Ltd52 on 2018/08/31 02:15
I was a big fan of Excel, until my desktop died and I lost everything. I do a lot of volunteer work and I had several people asking me for information that I no longer had. I heard about Google Sheets and my life has been much simpler. I recently had my laptop crash and I wasn't freaking out, because I didn't lose any spreadsheets or documents. They were all safe and sound. If I can't attend a meeting I just share my information with all the attendees. I'm in love!!❤️❤️
This is a Great Product
by 133128677 on 2018/01/16 15:52
I use to work with Excel daily at work. I have been retired for a few years and started using Google sheets. This program helps me keep track of all the things I did before but is a lot easier to use. It works with all my devices. I use it seamlessly between an iPad, a MacBook Air, Asus Chromebook and a Pc. I can use any device to edited my spreadsheets and this is very convenient. I feel this program is indispensable for my workflow and would be lost without it.
Missing ALL KINDs of capabilities the web app has
by A. Consultant on 2018/06/01 21:00
This app, like all of Google’s iOS apps I’ve tried, is missing lots of features that the web app has—even basics like the ability to type special characters. The interface is difficult to use, many features and functions are missing, and interactions are difficult. Simple actions like copy/paste and selecting cells don’t work well or even reliably. From any other company this app would be an embarrassment, but how else can you use Sheets on iPad? You’re stuck with Google’s poorly designed, poorly implemented, poorly supported app.
Very good except editing text cell
by Hikercycler on 2018/03/20 19:43
This is a very good app with lots of nice features. Only problem I have found is a bug in the editing of a cell formatted for wrapped text. If you are editing at the end of a text cell's content, no problem. But if you edit in the middle of a cell there is a problem. If you use glide typing the caps comes on after every word. If you type individual letters the caps comes on after every letter. This is obviously a bus and I have reported as such in the past, but it has not been addressed yet. Dennis
Great free option
by MY OPINION - We all have one on 2019/03/24 06:26
I don’t use the spreadsheet like a mathematics expert, so I can’t share on numbers in columns — EXCEPT when I try to put numbers in columns and the app tries to convert them into something I didn’t type! Like dates, or money, or something I didn’t ask for. Take the “automated” feature out, and you’ve got something! I’m sorry that I don’t know how to turn automatic features off, and it’s annoying. I AM GLAD to be able to make a rough spreadsheet for names, addresses and such... or, a chart that can be cut/pasted into a power point ... YES, I try to move back and forth between Google and Microsoft products, ON MY APPLE DEVICES! YES, you guessed it... I have ADHD-I. But if anyone can MAKE IT WORK, it’s me! A great product for free! It’s Google’s FREE APPS, free e-mail, and FREE G-drive that keeps me coming back to learn more of what Google can do for me! 4 ⭐️ because I don’t like automated conversions without my permission.
You can not go wrong
by Suhani12 on 2018/02/27 00:31
Anything from Google is great. Every program I’ve used from them is bullet proof and and they listen to their users. I have been working with software for the past 30 years. You can look long and hard but we very hard to find a company that cares as much as Google. The app is very simple and it has been upgraded several times and has never crashed in the years I’ve used it. Google sheets is outstanding.
Quasi-Functional
by R Patwari on 2017/11/23 00:49
Google Sheets (and the rest of their office products) work very well through a browser on MacOS, however with each update Google seems to be crippling the iOS versions (Sheets, Docs, Slides). Cut-and-paste with keyboard shortcuts used to work, now don't (and haven't been fixed despite several updates). Entering text in a spreadsheet cell bounces the screen distractingly up and down and then erases the contents in the cell fairly consistently. Features disappear from one version to the next. Unfortunately, now I cannot use iOS Chrome to access documents (I could before). I can't imagine the smart and talented engineers at Google are crippling their own iOS app, but it sure seems like it.
GREAT APP!
by Smpa225 on 2017/11/18 02:35
This app is fantastic! I use it to keep track of my exercise, my calories and food throughout the day. I can see my progress on any of my devices from my phone, to my iPad, to my computer it is great. It is simple and easy to use and quick to pick up. I wish I could use my Apple Pencil to write quicker but it is still fantastic. I would also like to see it easier to switch from page to page on my Ipad. It is a phenomenal app for school, work projects and even person uses. I would highly recommend.
