Just Use Sheets in a Browser
by tim.kite on 2021/10/12 11:20
Compared to the browser version, this is far too limited to consider using on the iPad. On the iPhone it’s OK, but at least for me I’m more likely to be editing spreadsheets on a device that has a bigger screen and can have a keyboard and mouse. Compared to more full featured spreadsheet apps like Numbers and Excel, which also retain most or all the features of their desktop counterparts, the lack of features and the clunkiness of the web app for sheets make me avoid using Google Sheets to collaborate unless I have to.
Page orientation
by Lt Afd. on 2021/10/07 20:41
You say to go to the three dot on the top right corner. Put there is no page setup for the iPad version. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Google Docs app. Open a document. In the top right, tap More . Tap Page setup. Not there!! Select the setting you want to change: Orientation Paper size Page color Make your changes.
Fantastic App
by Zach5278833652 on 2021/10/05 17:06
I couldn’t say enough good things about Sheets. It’s the perfect app for using on a phone with great usability on a desktop. There are two bugs I’ve noticed that if fixed would make the experience that much more seem less. 1. Cells with data validation seem to not show the options when initially pulling up the list 2. The charts that have transparent lines on desktop show as completely opaque on the phone app.
Typical Google
by Reviewer11235813 on 2021/10/05 13:01
When I select a cell in editing mode, why does that row get scrolled off the top of the screen? Does anyone care? 2020-10-05 - another update, no fix. Awesome!

Update creates problems
by Thrilled5838549 on 2021/10/01 02:24
Why did the note box decrease in size? It is so tiny now I cannot find my way around. There was nothing wrong with the old way. App developers change things for the sake of change, not for the sake of improvement. This is certainly one of those times.
Broken
by AhemYa on 2021/09/30 23:15
Update: still an issue 3 months later Totally broken for me right now. Can't switch from entering numbers to letters. And now I can't type anything at all. Clicking the text box doesn't do anything. Edit: looks like there's a new way to enter data. Instead of clicking on the text box theres a button to the right. Still pretty buggy though
Usability Issues
by kinueo on 2021/09/25 20:00
Good app, but there are issues that make the user experience more tedious than it has to be. For example, there is no option to add a line break in a single cell like on desktop.
Google sheet LOVES JUNE!
by Lindracula on 2021/09/25 03:33
Update months later from below: same problems- always always always wants to load on June 12 everytime no matter what. Fancy to see it progress as the year moves on- same results! Ultimate frustration level as I am required to use this on a daily highly regular basis. Every single day this app doesn’t load and when it does it loads to a month ago and blank. I have to close the app and reopen it a minimum of 4-5 times every single day just to get a very easy part of my job done and here this app is the most difficult part. Its just as bad on my iPad now as my phone at loading- complete and utter junk. If I didn’t have to use this app I wouldn’t. Do better please! This is a newer iPhone and a brand new iPad Pro that I’m using this app on. Oi its frustrating!
Not syncing
by Tnnisace73 on 2021/09/23 20:03
Ever since the last update this won’t sync and update when changes are made to a sheet. Please fix.
uploading files
by alexp921 on 2021/09/23 01:20
just let us upload files from this app instead of having to download a second app just to upload. it all goes to google drive. if i make a document it goes to google drive. why can’t i upload from this app instead of having to get google drive as well?
Cannot open links from safari into the sheets app
by Qwerrtyuop on 2021/09/17 06:09
I’m told to “get the app” when I already have it and I want to just open my current page in the app.
Can’t use it.
by Escovant on 2021/09/16 21:03
I can create and view existing sheets, no problem. But when I need to fill in a new sheet or edit one? It is a no go. I will start typing and it will wipe the block out and the text options vanish. I can get it to come back by back out of the document but it will do it again next time I attempt to fill in a block or edit an existing text. I cant even figure out what it is trying to do. Either way, it is unusable at this time.
useless
by smuntbloker.tumblr on 2021/09/16 12:17
this app is frustrating and useless
Generally useful but lots of glitches in recent updates
by Eleemay2012 on 2021/09/13 19:50
Links to GoogleSheets provided by others open an option to download the app, but none to open in the app if already/once downloaded. Not able to access on my phone unless I copy paste the address and take a bunch of extra steps.

Amazing work
It’s alright….
by Gabby The Beast on 2021/09/09 05:35
I use this app to edit schedules for work, but for some reason I could only do a few changes before it freezes and kicks me out. Then I have to exit out the app and launch it again and make a few changes again and the same thing happens again. This happens with the phone app and my tablet. Idk if it’s the fact that google sheets just isn’t meant for tablets/ phone apps. Idk what the purpose is of having an app that doesn’t function correctly. If this app is ever updated to where I can finally edit without it freezing and kicking me out, I will GLADLY update my review to a 5 stars!
Can’t line break within individual cell on iOS
by xexvxa on 2021/09/04 03:45
Can’t use the normal shortcut to add a line break within an individual cell on the app. (cmd + enter for iOS which is alt+enter on Windows). Really need this function. App is lacking from desktop version. Please contact me if there’s a solution.
Glitches
by hlperezzz on 2021/09/01 23:05
The glitches are horrible and my teacher makes me use this app again horrible
UI is weird, does not allow alphabetical characters randomly (only numbers)
by Not-Mozart on 2021/09/01 17:17
Needs a “select all” button inside the cells so I don’t have press delete 100 times. Often the UI for switching to text characters is gone and it’s impossible to type in anything besides numbers. Super annoying.

Can’t login absolute trash
by AlinaKai13 on 2021/08/26 22:14
I went to login and was using my phone because who remembers their password anymore when your phone does it all unfortunately. Followed the steps to get the security code off my phone and it kept telling me it was wrong. Triple checked to make sure I had the right account, not the problem. Tried entering both codes different ways, not the problem. Even had our IT person try and they couldn’t get it to work. Since when did this app get so crappy? I’m telling them to just put Excel on it.
Unable to make simple edits
by RTEHANDY on 2021/08/19 18:55
This app is very difficult. I am proficient in Excel and this is so very cumbersome and simply cannot do the things I need it to do.
Almost works right
by lovely_lad on 2021/08/19 16:56
If you leave your phone locked for more than a few minutes it closes the sheet you’re working on, so you have to go back and open it and find the correct sheet again. It gets old after a while.
No PDF options on App
by Zara Employee on 2021/08/18 00:05
Would love this so much if I was able to export as anything else besides an excel spreadsheet. Mostly making invoices and if I cant send as a PDF, it allows others to edit my file... not great when you’re talking about money. Not only that but sometimes I make revisions and export it, it doesn’t update the revisions made on the exported file... not sure what this glitch is, but I have sent so many wrong invoices... I’m overwhelmed with how hard it is to get an accurate product out of this app.

Recent update
by katey q on 2021/08/09 23:59
The app worked well on my iPad until the most recent update. Now it no longer allows me resize rows, by finger or mouse control. Making the app almost pointless to use unless I don’t need that feature.
iPhone App Issues

Conditional Formating
by James murty on 2021/08/08 04:52
Conditional formatting is missing in iOS version of google sheets. It’s present in Android though. Dev need to add this feature in iOS
Glitchy!
by Lurkling on 2021/08/05 20:53
There’s a lot to like, usually. But the glitches in the Google applications is really starting to get to me. I’ve already reported the ones from Google Docs, such as inserting double words. And now, a brand new spreadsheet I was working on, no longer exists. I’m so mad right now. I was working on this thing for over 30 minutes, how the heck does it just disappear?? It should have saved as untitled document, until I named it. And if it got deleted, it should’ve been in trash. It exists nowhere!
Constantly CRASHES on iPhone
by TruckerMike04 on 2021/08/03 16:13
I use this with a group. All the iPhone users have it constantly and consistently crash within 20-30 seconds of opening a file. Android users have no problem. It used to work great for all of us but at some point that changed. I’ve contacted Google via the app and told them what’s happening and got no reply and no fix. Been this way for many months. If you’re not willing to make it work for iPhone then don’t offer it in the App Store. This is terrible and unacceptable Google.
Awful experience
by Botcher23 on 2021/07/28 22:22
This app functions fine if you’re only doing baseline functions, but as soon as you start using drop down lists and others, it freezes and struggles to display list options.
Sheets link not opening in sheets app.
by Semiceri on 2021/07/27 17:38
Shared link opens in safari, it pops up a window to get the app, which is already installed. Inside the app there’s no way to paste the link to open in that way either. Guess I’m sticking with the web version on mobile.
Incredibly frustrating and inconsistent
by scareduck on 2021/07/27 03:13
Search on the same keyword generates different numbers of hits on iOS vs iPadOS and the web app (I can provide examples if needed). Also, search in apostrophe fails for reasons unknown. Awful.

Need a delete cell option on the app
by jamiesonfire on 2021/07/21 18:30
I’ve searched everywhere on how to delete a cell for this app on iOS and can not find anything. Why doesn’t the app have the option to delete one single cell? Y’all need to fix that, I don’t want to have to sign on to a browser everytime I have to delete something from google sheets defeats the purpose of the app itself.
Horrible Compared to Android Counterpart
by zealous13455 on 2021/07/17 05:19
This app works so much better on Android.
Not mobile-friendly at all
by mckennaak on 2021/07/16 15:05
I hate this app so much. I have been using it for more than two years, 2-3 hours a day to track my training, and it is always one of my largest headaches of the day. The offline mode is completely unreliable. I can be disconnected from wifi, using the app, lock my phone to do a set, unlock my phone, try to return to the app, and be unable to edit the worksheet I was just editing because I'm offline. 5 minutes later, it might magically work again. The selecting and editing tool, ugh. 4/5 times I edit a cell, I confirm the edit, then somehow the cell highlight gets dragged over additional cells and I have to make my edit again. This happens at least 2-3 times a training session depending on how closely I am tracking my session. Maybe this is a mobile memory limitation, but if I open 2 other apps, sheets completely loses which project I had open and which sheet. This is specifically annoying for my use case given I have separate sheets for each training week, which means they all look the same. When this happens, it's not unusual for me to forget to switch to the correct sheet after re-selecting my project, and update my session tracking numbers there. This means I often overwrite the wrong week, which means at least one week isn't accurate in tracking my program progress. Alternating between the alphabet keyboard and number keypad does not work. You can click the bubble to switch, but the keyboard will not switch until you've begun typing. I need to find another app, plainly. This app is not mobile-friendly on any account, and I find that for every operation I need to do in the app, there is something that makes it incredibly annoying with a high chance of having to redo it.
Poor functionality on iPad
by joey c 309 on 2021/07/16 12:26
A major gripe is that recent updates to this app require that you tap a button prior to being able to edit a cell. This alone makes the app difficult to use
Can’t open MS Excel password protected file
by elPhenom on 2021/07/16 12:05
Unable to open my password protected file with google sheet. Before I installed Sheets I was able to open same password protected file with G Drive itself. But after installed G Sheets I can’t open the same files with G Sheets, and I’m not able to open with G Drive either. So I have to decide to whether uninstall G Sheets to open my protected file to read it on the go, or keep it and be able to edit a few file eventually on the go but unable to read important protected files. I guess better uninstall it.
So sad
by Oncia on 2021/07/15 02:25
This was such a great app, but Google had to get greedy. They want money for every little thing they use to offer at no charge. Instead of getting ads to pay they want users to pay, and are blocking your use bit by bit. I’ve pulled all my stuff and won’t use Google any more. There are other emails, calendars, and yes even other spreadsheet apps. Soon you to will only be a memory of the past Google. So so sad.
No new lines within cells
by bbb rian on 2021/07/14 04:59
The app is okay aside from this, but unfortunately this is an absolute necessity for some of my sheets. The shortcut for newlines doesn't work (shift + return), and you can't even add them via dictation. Unfortunately this holds true in the browser version of sheets as well so my use case doesn't work on ipad at all.
Edit Button is not necessary
by ebmendoza85 on 2021/07/11 00:28
What was the point of adding an edit button. lol hate having to press the pencil (edit) button when selecting a cell just to input a new value every time. It was an unnecessary update.
Limited
by Shading bid on 2021/07/10 08:26
The app is useful for the very basic things, but it's still missing a lot from what the website offers. I'm not trying to run big datasets from my phone, but I would at least like to be able to copy an existing spreadsheet into another one from my phone! What bothers me is that it's the smallest things that I need to do and would like to do from the convenience of my phone, but I can't because the app doesn't have it. The google sheets team should pay a little more attention to the app so that it can be as close to a copy of what the website is.
Dishonest
by PittaMan on 2021/07/07 02:22
your pop ups in gmail for choosing the browser to open a sheet in not even mentioning Edge, but mentions others by name. Then when opened in edge, says its unsupported. Is it unsupported because Microsoft managed to make Chromium great to use?
It’s a miracle
by ClintFS on 2021/07/06 20:20
I have been using this for sometime now, It’s free and you can nearly do whatever you usually do with the data on spread sheets. Writing formulas is miraculously easy and it does what it says. I give 5 stars
Double click to Edit a cell - Slowing me down
by Smportis on 2021/07/06 15:16
There was a change in behavior in the iPad version where you must now double tap on a cell to edit it, or click the cell, then click the edit icon on the right. This DOUBLES (actually it's more than that due to unread taps forcing me to do it again) the number of clicks when editing a spreadsheet. PLEASE PLEASE put this back the way it was - single click to edit a cell.

Where is the help?
by drw2 on 2021/06/28 02:51
Downloaded this app thinking that I would be able to use it on my phone. Unfortunately, the functionality appears to be really minimal — either that or the help function is useless. I’m a very savvy spreadsheet user, but I cannot find how to perform even the barest actions - like converting a cell from its formula to the formula value. The phone menu seems to be focused more on look than underlying function. This makes me sad.
Best spreadsheet app but not saying much
by Suire Sr. on 2021/06/23 03:44
It’s a beautiful app but it’s essentially useless if you can bulk upload data to an existing sheet with formulas. I’m not even asking to be able to format complex formulas on the iPad, but not being able to do a data dump to a premade sheet is a major, ongoing oversight. If you need to make a shopping list from scratch, this is your app. If you are a professional or businessperson, carry your laptop with you.
Keeps crashing
by Boarderlove on 2021/06/21 17:30
App would be great if it stops crashing
Inexplicably bad
by luke252525 on 2021/06/13 16:10
Has like 1/8 of the features of regular sheets. If you are using ipad, you cant log in on chrome if you have the app - it auto redirects you to the app. So good luck making a pivot table

Kicks you out of your sheet on app swap
by Icithis on 2021/06/01 23:05
I have a sheet with several tabs. Every time I swap my apps, Sheets kicks me out of the current sheet and current tab. Unsure why this is the expected/default behavior, as it’s obnoxious.
Why haven’t you posted any of my reviews??
by SilvrWing on 2021/05/31 20:02
Idk what’s going on, but I know for a fact that I posted at least 2 separate review criticizing this app with all this ridiculous regression you got going on, screwing over mobile/iPad users for any decent usability. And why can’t I see any of my reviews there?? Cause let’s be real here, you need to seriously fix the app to what it was before you decided to do this dumb as heck double tap feature. Everything after the double tap feature ruins any usability and it crashes the whole thing for Christ sake!
Crashes consistently without fail
by Richard44djkckdkdks on 2021/05/29 08:47
Google has yet to improve their bugs in this app even after many many version upgrades. The Help Desk claims its the users fault because we have too much storage but that’s not the case (as I’m at 50% capacity), and a bad excuse for a faulty product. A lot of people think well, it’s free. You get what you pay for for but don’t forget Google is selling all of your information. No such thing as a free lunch.....
OMG This is so bad
by MacMikey on 2021/05/28 13:27
It's like google thinks that hardware keyboards don't exist for ipads. * You can't enter a column of values unless you hit "return" in every single cell on the way down, even if you have preselected the columns. * You can't drag to generate a range - you have to type it by hand * If you try to select two rows either by dragging or by selecting a whole row and then dragging the handle - it selects a different row, instead. * Good luck selecting and then deleting multiple rows I swear off ever using this app, again, and then I foolishly take my ipad somewhere instead of my laptop, and I don't have any choice. Garbage.

How To Use?

I know how to use Excel, but I can’t figure out how to use this app. How do you end the keyboard? It will not go away.
It doesn’t work on an iPad
by Bearly Don on 2021/05/25 21:43
I tried all the workarounds to make the menu bar at the top of the page suddenly appear. It didn’t, so I reached a conclusion that sheets does not work on an iPad. You see without the menu bar Sheets is almost impossible to format. That makes it unusable on an iPad.

Please allow newline
by xuanvuz on 2021/05/24 12:37
I’m using Sheets on my iPad, with the keyboard, and I have been unable to enter newline to create multiple lines of text in a row. Worst, when editing an existing Sheets with newline using the iPad/iPhone, it removes the newline and messed-up the formatting.

Crashes more than a herion addict
by RubiconF on 2021/05/07 22:26
Google needs to get their act together on their software and spend less time playing politics. This thing crashes more than a heroin addict. Almost unusable in the iPhone. Editing is stupid with an icon you have to press first. Is that just a change for change sake ie. no real purpose for making things better for the user.
Better
by MTshef on 2021/05/05 12:27
yesterday’s update fixed almost everything that the previous one broke. The only problem remaining is that it will not let me enter stuff into fields if the caps lock button is pressed. Since almost everything I enter is capital letters it is a bit of an inconvenience but definitely better than the last update. Thank you!
It’s ight
by plantboydiego on 2021/05/04 22:56
I don’t see why it can’t be just as functional as the web version, which I end up using on my iPad—but it’s a bit frustrating that it typically forces me to use the App. Hopefully this isn’t for long and the app becomes full fledged in functionality
PLEASE BRING BACK DOUBLE-TAP TO EDIT!!!
by sm1ng on 2021/05/02 12:00
I love sheets and depend on it a lot but the recent change to remove double-tap to edit on a cell (with a value in it) IS INFURIATING! We now have to hunt for a tiny pencil/edit icon all the way on the right of the cell details div/pane/whatever. It's horrible in practice! it's astonishing that no Google Sheets UI/UX person spoke out or noticed this degraded usability. It was so convenient for editing before and now it's horrible. In fact I've just uninstalled the app and am using desktop mode sheets in Safari to avoid this horrible UX blunder 🙁
Crashes all the time
by Pezoj on 2021/04/30 11:28
Whenever I open the sheet that has been updated and different computer crashes without fail. It would be updated right now but this is been happening for a while.
Poor usability
by baroonis on 2021/04/29 10:44
Typical Google making poor usability updates to its products. This time they’ve added a pencil icon that has to be tapped to edit the text in a cell. Why? It was much easier when you could tap anywhere to edit the text. They’ve also remove the X button on notes to quickly clear the note. Stupid, unnecessary updates and just a total lack of care for usability.
Edit button?
by Jameshjdjdjdjnzn on 2021/04/27 12:03
Not even an option to turn off that dreaded edit button?
Two Gripes..
by Seksay1 on 2021/04/27 05:13
Great app, but.. 1. I don’t like the new button you have to tap before you can start typing in a new cell. Previously, you could go to a new cell and just start typing. Not anymore.. well, you could, and I do it all the time, but, your time will be wasted because you didn’t tap the new edit button that is now a required step every time you go to a new cell. 2. The app reloads just about every time I come back to it. This may be a RAM management issue with the phone but I am using the 12 pro max and this is the only app this happens with in my experience. This wouldn’t normally be a big deal for me but it slows me down when I have to wait for it to reload, tap the sheet I was working in, and find my place within that sheet. This, all while I’m working against the clock, and trying to enter information as we go along. I would use something else but my customer uses this for their documentation.
Remove the edit button
by Chuckleskna on 2021/04/25 16:48
Who’s brilliant idea was it to make it harder to enter data? I used to add my data quickly and efficiently now I have to hit edit for every row. Completely unusable garbage now!

I wish the app supported filters (even if just activating existing filters that exist in the document, or choosing which column to sort by. It can be a hassle to get the sheet to open in the browser in order to be able to use this functionality.
On iPad
by YaUr04 on 2021/04/19 01:41
There really isn’t keyboard support on iPad. Your mouse really only acts like a finger. There might be keyboard short it’s though. This could be an amazing app with mouse support.
Editing
by Amyewh on 2021/04/18 13:50
One star for having to click the edit button or to double-click a cell to edit
Crash crash crash!
by gretschfiltertron68 on 2021/04/17 16:09
Continuously crashes
Pretty good ❤️
by Savanah G. on 2021/04/16 14:12
It’s really good, I use it for school and assignments. It works really well and doesn’t glitch. I like that it works offline so I could be in the car or at school and use it. You should download it you won’t regret it.
Annoying I have to even install this because I’m just going to delete it right after
by Ethan Dickie on 2021/04/15 21:09
Let people edit in the linked website version on mobile. This app isn’t going to last more than a minute on my phone and is just a time sink for no reason for myself.
Constantly crashes on my iPhone
by etxgrl on 2021/04/13 18:04
I can usually type about 3 letters or numbers before it crashes. Drives me completely crazy!!
Edit button
by Faithhutch on 2021/04/12 11:42
App was great before you added the edit button. It takes too long to make changes now.
remove edit button!
by jeranne on 2021/04/12 06:47
echoing other reviews, past versions of the app allowed you to just start entering data into a cell by simply starting to type. a recent performance “improvement” in one of the most recent app updates now requires one hits the edit button before being able to input anything into, creating an additional step and making the app less functional. please remove this functionality or at least add a setting to disable it!
Missing important feature
by The Wise Reviewer on 2021/04/11 04:27
I searched online and it seems like currently it is IMPOSSIBLE to select multiple individual cells in the mobile version. I gave it two starts but will update it to five once this feature is added, because it is a really important one and not that complicated to implement. Thank you!
Great Spreadsheet !
by epenaflo on 2021/04/09 22:47
Best iPhone spreadsheet I have ever found on the App Store. It has all the functionality that I needed to maintain all my basic business info. Thank you.
Must changes!!!
by nicohegui on 2021/04/08 17:17
The app is okay but if the interface was more as it is on the computer it would be amazing!!!
App not working
by Err0r_1O1 on 2021/04/06 04:24
i would be in the app doing stuff and it would randomly close for no reason
Not user friendly
by Duke rockhopper on 2021/04/05 11:47
Having to touch the edit icon to type in every cell when using a keypad makes it very time consuming. The app is virtually useless on an iPad with a keypad. The update is horrible.
New version problem
by Chessmaster One on 2021/04/03 19:48
That extra tap for editing a cell is super annoying. Get rid of it
Version 1.2021.0624 needs fixing
by Univero on 2021/04/01 14:30
I use this app regularly. Since the update, I can no longer copy/cut cell contents. And when I select a cell, it randomly decides if I can enter text or numbers. When it's in the number function, I have no way to change it to a text keyboard.
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!!!
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 jspowers21 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.
Getting There, But ….
by Ryker X Gevaarlijk on 2021/03/11 04:26
My work uses sheets for all documentation and I WISH i could finally start using the iOS app for full functionality, but i can’t because of one issue that is not possible on iOS. For some of my work I use Cells for note taking, so seeing that i input a larg quantity of characters, I make edits all the time throughout the week. With the application, editing the cells shows a very small portion of whats in the cells. If i have 2 paragraphs of info in a cell, it takes FOREVER to “scroll” to the section i need to edit. This has completely turned me off of using the iOS application for any work input, only for viewing. The newest update got me excited, but then killed my excitement haha. Now when a cell is selected, there’s a pop up of the contents to view but only to view, to edit the cell, it goes back to the original way of editing. If there was a way to edit the contents within the pop up view of the contents, that would change everything. Please think about it!
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.
Two Gripes..
by Seksay1 on 2021/04/27 05:13
Great app, but.. 1. I don’t like the new button you have to tap before you can start typing in a new cell. Previously, you could go to a new cell and just start typing. Not anymore.. well, you could, and I do it all the time, but, your time will be wasted because you didn’t tap the new edit button that is now a required step every time you go to a new cell. 2. The app reloads just about every time I come back to it. This may be a RAM management issue with the phone but I am using the 12 pro max and this is the only app this happens with in my experience. This wouldn’t normally be a big deal for me but it slows me down when I have to wait for it to reload, tap the sheet I was working in, and find my place within that sheet. This, all while I’m working against the clock, and trying to enter information as we go along. I would use something else but my customer uses this for their documentation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Good, with exceptions.
by Tewithersaiyan on 2020/09/18 14:17
This app suffers from the same problems afflicting other google apps on the mobile/tablet platform: not all of the original functions are available. I am a student who uses a 2020 iPad Pro, and the other day I ran into a problem on sheets when I discovered that I was unable to do very basic things such as create a function for data I’d input, or switch the values on the x and y axis of a graph. Overall, it’s a very polished and functional app, but it is brought down by the fact that in the very least there is no iPad version of the app with all the functions the PC version has. Would be 5 stars if not for this problem. Other apps, like Google Docs, have a similar problem.
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.
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.
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.
Google sheet LOVES JUNE!
by Lindracula on 2021/09/25 03:33
Update months later from below: same problems- always always always wants to load on June 12 everytime no matter what. Fancy to see it progress as the year moves on- same results! Ultimate frustration level as I am required to use this on a daily highly regular basis. Every single day this app doesn’t load and when it does it loads to a month ago and blank. I have to close the app and reopen it a minimum of 4-5 times every single day just to get a very easy part of my job done and here this app is the most difficult part. Its just as bad on my iPad now as my phone at loading- complete and utter junk. If I didn’t have to use this app I wouldn’t. Do better please! This is a newer iPhone and a brand new iPad Pro that I’m using this app on. Oi its frustrating!
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.
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
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.
Make like the web version
by plat-o-pus on 2021/02/11 01:43
For experienced spreadsheet users, the app version of Sheets is really terrible. It would not allow you to use any keyboard shortcuts even if you own Apple’s Magic Keyboard. I also do not understand why it would not show the top drop down menu like the web version. This is a very trimmed version of the original and it is really painful to be productive while using it. I do not understand why it produces a lot of errors when using formulas such as GoogleFinance. In the App it would endlessly display “...getting data” while if I open the same file in Safari using web version of sheets it retrieves the data instantly. I deleted it and open Sheets inside Safari. You will be very thankful that it operates normal that way.
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.
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.
Where’s the AutoSum?

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.
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 :)
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.
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~~!
Months of data RUINED
by Nickickk on 2020/12/31 02:45
Everything was working fine until I opened another app. When I switched back to sheets, the app restarted. I opened the spreadsheet file and half of my cells are mixed up and scrambled all together!!! I’ve never seen this before in my entire life! All my cells contains random info from other cells and my formulas are all ruined! I cannot undo or find a way to restore my spreadsheet! It’s been hours and I cannot find a solution! I don’t know what happened but I lost months of data!!! How am I supposed to trust an app that can ruin an extremely important file?! Absolutely scary!!! I am extremely upset and frustrated that my spreadsheet file became ruined for absolutely no reason!!! All I did was open another app, and switched back to sheets and my entire file is all mixed up and ruined!
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.
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!
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!
Crash
by timzter on 2020/07/01 14:25
Alarmy has been unstable lately. A couple of weeks ago, the alarm did not go off at all. Today, the alarm went off but tapping on the notification to get into the app to perform the mission to turn the alarm off, the app crashed. When I then tapped the app's icon to launch it, it crashed again. About the 3rd attempt to launch it, it did launch, but by now, time has elapsed so that it didn't force me to perform the mission. Consequently today's alarm is treated as though it never happened, evidenced by the missing entry in the History. The most basic function of the app must not fail, otherwise this app is useless. I have been using this app for over a year now. But lately it has been unstable and performing unreliably.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Needs Some Work, A Bit Laggy
by MichiruMochi on 2020/10/03 02:24
I have large shared files that I constantly need to look at and work on alongside my coworkers on the same file at the same time. It seems like the iPad/iPhone version is a bit laggy and choppy? And whenever I try to load one of those large files, it crashes. I’ll keep trying or will try offline, but I hope the changes I make get saved to the same file everyone else is working on! Just leaving some feedback! Oh and would also love to have the ability to find words on the page, not just to replace but i nee to search for them to copy and reference for another sheet! So that’d be cool if we got that!
Still a "baby version" of the web app
by iPad4 user on 2020/09/27 15:50
Google, PLEASE start taking iPad seriously. My company does everything in G Suite and your iPad apps lack so much functionality compared to their web versions that they are like having one hand tied to your back. Take a note how Apple or Microsoft does their office apps on iPad and start following. Examples: Many functions that exist in web version are just missing from app - case: you cannot edit graph set to occupy full tab in Sheets. There is no way to edit multiple documents side by side. Also, make it possible to open the documents in Safari when you have multiple user accounts. Now only way for preventing app from hijacking url is to by hand add /u/1 in the the right spot.

Just Use Sheets in a Browser
by tim.kite on 2021/10/12 11:20
Compared to the browser version, this is far too limited to consider using on the iPad. On the iPhone it’s OK, but at least for me I’m more likely to be editing spreadsheets on a device that has a bigger screen and can have a keyboard and mouse. Compared to more full featured spreadsheet apps like Numbers and Excel, which also retain most or all the features of their desktop counterparts, the lack of features and the clunkiness of the web app for sheets make me avoid using Google Sheets to collaborate unless I have to.
Page orientation
by Lt Afd. on 2021/10/07 20:41
You say to go to the three dot on the top right corner. Put there is no page setup for the iPad version. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Google Docs app. Open a document. In the top right, tap More . Tap Page setup. Not there!! Select the setting you want to change: Orientation Paper size Page color Make your changes.
Fantastic App
by Zach5278833652 on 2021/10/05 17:06
I couldn’t say enough good things about Sheets. It’s the perfect app for using on a phone with great usability on a desktop. There are two bugs I’ve noticed that if fixed would make the experience that much more seem less. 1. Cells with data validation seem to not show the options when initially pulling up the list 2. The charts that have transparent lines on desktop show as completely opaque on the phone app.
Typical Google
by Reviewer11235813 on 2021/10/05 13:01
When I select a cell in editing mode, why does that row get scrolled off the top of the screen? Does anyone care? 2020-10-05 - another update, no fix. Awesome!

Update creates problems
by Thrilled5838549 on 2021/10/01 02:24
Why did the note box decrease in size? It is so tiny now I cannot find my way around. There was nothing wrong with the old way. App developers change things for the sake of change, not for the sake of improvement. This is certainly one of those times.
Broken
by AhemYa on 2021/09/30 23:15
Update: still an issue 3 months later Totally broken for me right now. Can't switch from entering numbers to letters. And now I can't type anything at all. Clicking the text box doesn't do anything. Edit: looks like there's a new way to enter data. Instead of clicking on the text box theres a button to the right. Still pretty buggy though
Usability Issues
by kinueo on 2021/09/25 20:00
Good app, but there are issues that make the user experience more tedious than it has to be. For example, there is no option to add a line break in a single cell like on desktop.
Google sheet LOVES JUNE!
by Lindracula on 2021/09/25 03:33
Update months later from below: same problems- always always always wants to load on June 12 everytime no matter what. Fancy to see it progress as the year moves on- same results! Ultimate frustration level as I am required to use this on a daily highly regular basis. Every single day this app doesn’t load and when it does it loads to a month ago and blank. I have to close the app and reopen it a minimum of 4-5 times every single day just to get a very easy part of my job done and here this app is the most difficult part. Its just as bad on my iPad now as my phone at loading- complete and utter junk. If I didn’t have to use this app I wouldn’t. Do better please! This is a newer iPhone and a brand new iPad Pro that I’m using this app on. Oi its frustrating!
Not syncing
by Tnnisace73 on 2021/09/23 20:03
Ever since the last update this won’t sync and update when changes are made to a sheet. Please fix.
uploading files
by alexp921 on 2021/09/23 01:20
just let us upload files from this app instead of having to download a second app just to upload. it all goes to google drive. if i make a document it goes to google drive. why can’t i upload from this app instead of having to get google drive as well?
Cannot open links from safari into the sheets app
by Qwerrtyuop on 2021/09/17 06:09
I’m told to “get the app” when I already have it and I want to just open my current page in the app.
Can’t use it.
by Escovant on 2021/09/16 21:03
I can create and view existing sheets, no problem. But when I need to fill in a new sheet or edit one? It is a no go. I will start typing and it will wipe the block out and the text options vanish. I can get it to come back by back out of the document but it will do it again next time I attempt to fill in a block or edit an existing text. I cant even figure out what it is trying to do. Either way, it is unusable at this time.
useless

Generally useful but lots of glitches in recent updates
by Eleemay2012 on 2021/09/13 19:50
Links to GoogleSheets provided by others open an option to download the app, but none to open in the app if already/once downloaded. Not able to access on my phone unless I copy paste the address and take a bunch of extra steps.

Amazing work
It’s alright….
by Gabby The Beast on 2021/09/09 05:35
I use this app to edit schedules for work, but for some reason I could only do a few changes before it freezes and kicks me out. Then I have to exit out the app and launch it again and make a few changes again and the same thing happens again. This happens with the phone app and my tablet. Idk if it’s the fact that google sheets just isn’t meant for tablets/ phone apps. Idk what the purpose is of having an app that doesn’t function correctly. If this app is ever updated to where I can finally edit without it freezing and kicking me out, I will GLADLY update my review to a 5 stars!
Can’t line break within individual cell on iOS
by xexvxa on 2021/09/04 03:45
Can’t use the normal shortcut to add a line break within an individual cell on the app. (cmd + enter for iOS which is alt+enter on Windows). Really need this function. App is lacking from desktop version. Please contact me if there’s a solution.
Glitches
by hlperezzz on 2021/09/01 23:05
The glitches are horrible and my teacher makes me use this app again horrible
UI is weird, does not allow alphabetical characters randomly (only numbers)
by Not-Mozart on 2021/09/01 17:17
Needs a “select all” button inside the cells so I don’t have press delete 100 times. Often the UI for switching to text characters is gone and it’s impossible to type in anything besides numbers. Super annoying.

Can’t login absolute trash
by AlinaKai13 on 2021/08/26 22:14
I went to login and was using my phone because who remembers their password anymore when your phone does it all unfortunately. Followed the steps to get the security code off my phone and it kept telling me it was wrong. Triple checked to make sure I had the right account, not the problem. Tried entering both codes different ways, not the problem. Even had our IT person try and they couldn’t get it to work. Since when did this app get so crappy? I’m telling them to just put Excel on it.
Unable to make simple edits
by RTEHANDY on 2021/08/19 18:55
This app is very difficult. I am proficient in Excel and this is so very cumbersome and simply cannot do the things I need it to do.
Almost works right
by lovely_lad on 2021/08/19 16:56
If you leave your phone locked for more than a few minutes it closes the sheet you’re working on, so you have to go back and open it and find the correct sheet again. It gets old after a while.
No PDF options on App
by Zara Employee on 2021/08/18 00:05
Would love this so much if I was able to export as anything else besides an excel spreadsheet. Mostly making invoices and if I cant send as a PDF, it allows others to edit my file... not great when you’re talking about money. Not only that but sometimes I make revisions and export it, it doesn’t update the revisions made on the exported file... not sure what this glitch is, but I have sent so many wrong invoices... I’m overwhelmed with how hard it is to get an accurate product out of this app.
good

Recent update
by katey q on 2021/08/09 23:59
The app worked well on my iPad until the most recent update. Now it no longer allows me resize rows, by finger or mouse control. Making the app almost pointless to use unless I don’t need that feature.

Conditional Formating
by James murty on 2021/08/08 04:52
Conditional formatting is missing in iOS version of google sheets. It’s present in Android though. Dev need to add this feature in iOS
Glitchy!
by Lurkling on 2021/08/05 20:53
There’s a lot to like, usually. But the glitches in the Google applications is really starting to get to me. I’ve already reported the ones from Google Docs, such as inserting double words. And now, a brand new spreadsheet I was working on, no longer exists. I’m so mad right now. I was working on this thing for over 30 minutes, how the heck does it just disappear?? It should have saved as untitled document, until I named it. And if it got deleted, it should’ve been in trash. It exists nowhere!
Constantly CRASHES on iPhone
by TruckerMike04 on 2021/08/03 16:13
I use this with a group. All the iPhone users have it constantly and consistently crash within 20-30 seconds of opening a file. Android users have no problem. It used to work great for all of us but at some point that changed. I’ve contacted Google via the app and told them what’s happening and got no reply and no fix. Been this way for many months. If you’re not willing to make it work for iPhone then don’t offer it in the App Store. This is terrible and unacceptable Google.
Awful experience
by Botcher23 on 2021/07/28 22:22
This app functions fine if you’re only doing baseline functions, but as soon as you start using drop down lists and others, it freezes and struggles to display list options.
Sheets link not opening in sheets app.
by Semiceri on 2021/07/27 17:38
Shared link opens in safari, it pops up a window to get the app, which is already installed. Inside the app there’s no way to paste the link to open in that way either. Guess I’m sticking with the web version on mobile.
Incredibly frustrating and inconsistent
by scareduck on 2021/07/27 03:13
Search on the same keyword generates different numbers of hits on iOS vs iPadOS and the web app (I can provide examples if needed). Also, search in apostrophe fails for reasons unknown. Awful.

Need a delete cell option on the app
by jamiesonfire on 2021/07/21 18:30
I’ve searched everywhere on how to delete a cell for this app on iOS and can not find anything. Why doesn’t the app have the option to delete one single cell? Y’all need to fix that, I don’t want to have to sign on to a browser everytime I have to delete something from google sheets defeats the purpose of the app itself.
Horrible Compared to Android Counterpart

Not mobile-friendly at all
by mckennaak on 2021/07/16 15:05
I hate this app so much. I have been using it for more than two years, 2-3 hours a day to track my training, and it is always one of my largest headaches of the day. The offline mode is completely unreliable. I can be disconnected from wifi, using the app, lock my phone to do a set, unlock my phone, try to return to the app, and be unable to edit the worksheet I was just editing because I'm offline. 5 minutes later, it might magically work again. The selecting and editing tool, ugh. 4/5 times I edit a cell, I confirm the edit, then somehow the cell highlight gets dragged over additional cells and I have to make my edit again. This happens at least 2-3 times a training session depending on how closely I am tracking my session. Maybe this is a mobile memory limitation, but if I open 2 other apps, sheets completely loses which project I had open and which sheet. This is specifically annoying for my use case given I have separate sheets for each training week, which means they all look the same. When this happens, it's not unusual for me to forget to switch to the correct sheet after re-selecting my project, and update my session tracking numbers there. This means I often overwrite the wrong week, which means at least one week isn't accurate in tracking my program progress. Alternating between the alphabet keyboard and number keypad does not work. You can click the bubble to switch, but the keyboard will not switch until you've begun typing. I need to find another app, plainly. This app is not mobile-friendly on any account, and I find that for every operation I need to do in the app, there is something that makes it incredibly annoying with a high chance of having to redo it.
Poor functionality on iPad
by joey c 309 on 2021/07/16 12:26
A major gripe is that recent updates to this app require that you tap a button prior to being able to edit a cell. This alone makes the app difficult to use
Can’t open MS Excel password protected file
by elPhenom on 2021/07/16 12:05
Unable to open my password protected file with google sheet. Before I installed Sheets I was able to open same password protected file with G Drive itself. But after installed G Sheets I can’t open the same files with G Sheets, and I’m not able to open with G Drive either. So I have to decide to whether uninstall G Sheets to open my protected file to read it on the go, or keep it and be able to edit a few file eventually on the go but unable to read important protected files. I guess better uninstall it.
So sad
by Oncia on 2021/07/15 02:25
This was such a great app, but Google had to get greedy. They want money for every little thing they use to offer at no charge. Instead of getting ads to pay they want users to pay, and are blocking your use bit by bit. I’ve pulled all my stuff and won’t use Google any more. There are other emails, calendars, and yes even other spreadsheet apps. Soon you to will only be a memory of the past Google. So so sad.
No new lines within cells
by bbb rian on 2021/07/14 04:59
The app is okay aside from this, but unfortunately this is an absolute necessity for some of my sheets. The shortcut for newlines doesn't work (shift + return), and you can't even add them via dictation. Unfortunately this holds true in the browser version of sheets as well so my use case doesn't work on ipad at all.
Edit Button is not necessary
by ebmendoza85 on 2021/07/11 00:28
What was the point of adding an edit button. lol hate having to press the pencil (edit) button when selecting a cell just to input a new value every time. It was an unnecessary update.
Limited
by Shading bid on 2021/07/10 08:26
The app is useful for the very basic things, but it's still missing a lot from what the website offers. I'm not trying to run big datasets from my phone, but I would at least like to be able to copy an existing spreadsheet into another one from my phone! What bothers me is that it's the smallest things that I need to do and would like to do from the convenience of my phone, but I can't because the app doesn't have it. The google sheets team should pay a little more attention to the app so that it can be as close to a copy of what the website is.
Dishonest
by PittaMan on 2021/07/07 02:22
your pop ups in gmail for choosing the browser to open a sheet in not even mentioning Edge, but mentions others by name. Then when opened in edge, says its unsupported. Is it unsupported because Microsoft managed to make Chromium great to use?
It’s a miracle
by ClintFS on 2021/07/06 20:20
I have been using this for sometime now, It’s free and you can nearly do whatever you usually do with the data on spread sheets. Writing formulas is miraculously easy and it does what it says. I give 5 stars
Double click to Edit a cell - Slowing me down
by Smportis on 2021/07/06 15:16
There was a change in behavior in the iPad version where you must now double tap on a cell to edit it, or click the cell, then click the edit icon on the right. This DOUBLES (actually it's more than that due to unread taps forcing me to do it again) the number of clicks when editing a spreadsheet. PLEASE PLEASE put this back the way it was - single click to edit a cell.

Latest update doesn’t support my iOS 12.5.4. on the iPad Air as of July 2021
The Best
by Abdul Hakam on 2021/07/05 12:44
The success formula is, the best thing is not selling the software for money but to provide the ecosystem. Google and Apple are doing that first and making the money later...
no
by mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm7 on 2021/06/29 01:22
yes
Where is the help?
by drw2 on 2021/06/28 02:51
Downloaded this app thinking that I would be able to use it on my phone. Unfortunately, the functionality appears to be really minimal — either that or the help function is useless. I’m a very savvy spreadsheet user, but I cannot find how to perform even the barest actions - like converting a cell from its formula to the formula value. The phone menu seems to be focused more on look than underlying function. This makes me sad.
Best spreadsheet app but not saying much
by Suire Sr. on 2021/06/23 03:44
It’s a beautiful app but it’s essentially useless if you can bulk upload data to an existing sheet with formulas. I’m not even asking to be able to format complex formulas on the iPad, but not being able to do a data dump to a premade sheet is a major, ongoing oversight. If you need to make a shopping list from scratch, this is your app. If you are a professional or businessperson, carry your laptop with you.
Keeps crashing
by Boarderlove on 2021/06/21 17:30
App would be great if it stops crashing
Inexplicably bad
by luke252525 on 2021/06/13 16:10
Has like 1/8 of the features of regular sheets. If you are using ipad, you cant log in on chrome if you have the app - it auto redirects you to the app. So good luck making a pivot table

Foarte comod, imi place enorm sa lucrez cu aplicatia asta, nu se compara cu nici una alta, simplu si extrem de nativ! 11 din 10
Annoying Update
by tommyhawk09 on 2021/06/08 21:56
Google updated its app to make it so I have to click edit every time I want to enter a box, added a ton of time to my workload..
Sloooooow it down
by Fly jay way jr on 2021/06/07 14:02
Couldn’t be a slower app, don’t use this on a phone because it seems to crash every time I open it
Kicks you out of your sheet on app swap
by Icithis on 2021/06/01 23:05
I have a sheet with several tabs. Every time I swap my apps, Sheets kicks me out of the current sheet and current tab. Unsure why this is the expected/default behavior, as it’s obnoxious.
Why haven’t you posted any of my reviews??
by SilvrWing on 2021/05/31 20:02
Idk what’s going on, but I know for a fact that I posted at least 2 separate review criticizing this app with all this ridiculous regression you got going on, screwing over mobile/iPad users for any decent usability. And why can’t I see any of my reviews there?? Cause let’s be real here, you need to seriously fix the app to what it was before you decided to do this dumb as heck double tap feature. Everything after the double tap feature ruins any usability and it crashes the whole thing for Christ sake!
Crashes consistently without fail
by Richard44djkckdkdks on 2021/05/29 08:47
Google has yet to improve their bugs in this app even after many many version upgrades. The Help Desk claims its the users fault because we have too much storage but that’s not the case (as I’m at 50% capacity), and a bad excuse for a faulty product. A lot of people think well, it’s free. You get what you pay for for but don’t forget Google is selling all of your information. No such thing as a free lunch.....
OMG This is so bad
by MacMikey on 2021/05/28 13:27
It's like google thinks that hardware keyboards don't exist for ipads. * You can't enter a column of values unless you hit "return" in every single cell on the way down, even if you have preselected the columns. * You can't drag to generate a range - you have to type it by hand * If you try to select two rows either by dragging or by selecting a whole row and then dragging the handle - it selects a different row, instead. * Good luck selecting and then deleting multiple rows I swear off ever using this app, again, and then I foolishly take my ipad somewhere instead of my laptop, and I don't have any choice. Garbage.
Garbage app
by Dan48376 on 2021/05/28 00:24
Anyone who gives us more than one star is absolutely lying. Nothing works on it. The only reason I use it is because I have to for work.
How To Use?
by sorry4ever on 2021/05/27 18:02
I know how to use Excel, but I can’t figure out how to use this app. How do you end the keyboard? It will not go away.
It doesn’t work on an iPad
by Bearly Don on 2021/05/25 21:43
I tried all the workarounds to make the menu bar at the top of the page suddenly appear. It didn’t, so I reached a conclusion that sheets does not work on an iPad. You see without the menu bar Sheets is almost impossible to format. That makes it unusable on an iPad.
Freezes
by R-J-T on 2021/05/24 20:00
A lot.
This is a horrible app
by Casey Aldwell on 2021/05/24 16:36
This is a horrible app and the most frustrating formatting I have ever used good luck trying to get anything done
Please allow newline
by xuanvuz on 2021/05/24 12:37
I’m using Sheets on my iPad, with the keyboard, and I have been unable to enter newline to create multiple lines of text in a row. Worst, when editing an existing Sheets with newline using the iPad/iPhone, it removes the newline and messed-up the formatting.
EDIT TAB
by Willzwillz on 2021/05/22 17:22
I JUST HATE HOW YOU MUST HIT THE EDIT TAB ON EVER BOX TO USE THIS NOW
Literal Garbage
by HC172563626 on 2021/05/20 16:57
This app is actual garbage I have no idea how it has a 4.8...... I seriously can’t use it and my job highly depends on google spreadsheets
Fantastic!
by Moishe Davidowitz on 2021/05/14 18:31
The app is just perfect! Able to do all the tasks that would usually require me to pay for a professional. Easy to use and fast reliable app.
Crashes more than a herion addict
by RubiconF on 2021/05/07 22:26
Google needs to get their act together on their software and spend less time playing politics. This thing crashes more than a heroin addict. Almost unusable in the iPhone. Editing is stupid with an icon you have to press first. Is that just a change for change sake ie. no real purpose for making things better for the user.
Better
by MTshef on 2021/05/05 12:27
yesterday’s update fixed almost everything that the previous one broke. The only problem remaining is that it will not let me enter stuff into fields if the caps lock button is pressed. Since almost everything I enter is capital letters it is a bit of an inconvenience but definitely better than the last update. Thank you!
It’s ight
by plantboydiego on 2021/05/04 22:56
I don’t see why it can’t be just as functional as the web version, which I end up using on my iPad—but it’s a bit frustrating that it typically forces me to use the App. Hopefully this isn’t for long and the app becomes full fledged in functionality
PLEASE BRING BACK DOUBLE-TAP TO EDIT!!!
by sm1ng on 2021/05/02 12:00
I love sheets and depend on it a lot but the recent change to remove double-tap to edit on a cell (with a value in it) IS INFURIATING! We now have to hunt for a tiny pencil/edit icon all the way on the right of the cell details div/pane/whatever. It's horrible in practice! it's astonishing that no Google Sheets UI/UX person spoke out or noticed this degraded usability. It was so convenient for editing before and now it's horrible. In fact I've just uninstalled the app and am using desktop mode sheets in Safari to avoid this horrible UX blunder 🙁
Crashes all the time
by Pezoj on 2021/04/30 11:28
Whenever I open the sheet that has been updated and different computer crashes without fail. It would be updated right now but this is been happening for a while.
Poor usability
by baroonis on 2021/04/29 10:44
Typical Google making poor usability updates to its products. This time they’ve added a pencil icon that has to be tapped to edit the text in a cell. Why? It was much easier when you could tap anywhere to edit the text. They’ve also remove the X button on notes to quickly clear the note. Stupid, unnecessary updates and just a total lack of care for usability.
Edit button?
by Jameshjdjdjdjnzn on 2021/04/27 12:03
Not even an option to turn off that dreaded edit button?
Two Gripes..
by Seksay1 on 2021/04/27 05:13
Great app, but.. 1. I don’t like the new button you have to tap before you can start typing in a new cell. Previously, you could go to a new cell and just start typing. Not anymore.. well, you could, and I do it all the time, but, your time will be wasted because you didn’t tap the new edit button that is now a required step every time you go to a new cell. 2. The app reloads just about every time I come back to it. This may be a RAM management issue with the phone but I am using the 12 pro max and this is the only app this happens with in my experience. This wouldn’t normally be a big deal for me but it slows me down when I have to wait for it to reload, tap the sheet I was working in, and find my place within that sheet. This, all while I’m working against the clock, and trying to enter information as we go along. I would use something else but my customer uses this for their documentation.
Remove the edit button
by Chuckleskna on 2021/04/25 16:48
Who’s brilliant idea was it to make it harder to enter data? I used to add my data quickly and efficiently now I have to hit edit for every row. Completely unusable garbage now!
Terrible iPad Magic Keyboard Support
by JeffKonowitch on 2021/04/21 18:54
Pretty much unusable for anything other than viewing spreadsheets.
Missing features that mobile site can do, like filter/sort
by KyleJN on 2021/04/19 22:50
I wish the app supported filters (even if just activating existing filters that exist in the document, or choosing which column to sort by. It can be a hassle to get the sheet to open in the browser in order to be able to use this functionality.
On iPad
by YaUr04 on 2021/04/19 01:41
There really isn’t keyboard support on iPad. Your mouse really only acts like a finger. There might be keyboard short it’s though. This could be an amazing app with mouse support.
Editing
by Amyewh on 2021/04/18 13:50
One star for having to click the edit button or to double-click a cell to edit
Crash crash crash!
by gretschfiltertron68 on 2021/04/17 16:09
Continuously crashes
Pretty good ❤️
by Savanah G. on 2021/04/16 14:12
It’s really good, I use it for school and assignments. It works really well and doesn’t glitch. I like that it works offline so I could be in the car or at school and use it. You should download it you won’t regret it.
Annoying I have to even install this because I’m just going to delete it right after
by Ethan Dickie on 2021/04/15 21:09
Let people edit in the linked website version on mobile. This app isn’t going to last more than a minute on my phone and is just a time sink for no reason for myself.
Constantly crashes on my iPhone
by etxgrl on 2021/04/13 18:04
I can usually type about 3 letters or numbers before it crashes. Drives me completely crazy!!
Edit button
by Faithhutch on 2021/04/12 11:42
App was great before you added the edit button. It takes too long to make changes now.
remove edit button!
by jeranne on 2021/04/12 06:47
echoing other reviews, past versions of the app allowed you to just start entering data into a cell by simply starting to type. a recent performance “improvement” in one of the most recent app updates now requires one hits the edit button before being able to input anything into, creating an additional step and making the app less functional. please remove this functionality or at least add a setting to disable it!
Missing important feature
by The Wise Reviewer on 2021/04/11 04:27
I searched online and it seems like currently it is IMPOSSIBLE to select multiple individual cells in the mobile version. I gave it two starts but will update it to five once this feature is added, because it is a really important one and not that complicated to implement. Thank you!
Great Spreadsheet !
by epenaflo on 2021/04/09 22:47
Best iPhone spreadsheet I have ever found on the App Store. It has all the functionality that I needed to maintain all my basic business info. Thank you.
Must changes!!!
by nicohegui on 2021/04/08 17:17
The app is okay but if the interface was more as it is on the computer it would be amazing!!!
App not working
by Err0r_1O1 on 2021/04/06 04:24
i would be in the app doing stuff and it would randomly close for no reason
Not user friendly
by Duke rockhopper on 2021/04/05 11:47
Having to touch the edit icon to type in every cell when using a keypad makes it very time consuming. The app is virtually useless on an iPad with a keypad. The update is horrible.
New version problem
by Chessmaster One on 2021/04/03 19:48
That extra tap for editing a cell is super annoying. Get rid of it
Version 1.2021.0624 needs fixing
by Univero on 2021/04/01 14:30
I use this app regularly. Since the update, I can no longer copy/cut cell contents. And when I select a cell, it randomly decides if I can enter text or numbers. When it's in the number function, I have no way to change it to a text keyboard.
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!!!
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 jspowers21 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.
Getting There, But ….
by Ryker X Gevaarlijk on 2021/03/11 04:26
My work uses sheets for all documentation and I WISH i could finally start using the iOS app for full functionality, but i can’t because of one issue that is not possible on iOS. For some of my work I use Cells for note taking, so seeing that i input a larg quantity of characters, I make edits all the time throughout the week. With the application, editing the cells shows a very small portion of whats in the cells. If i have 2 paragraphs of info in a cell, it takes FOREVER to “scroll” to the section i need to edit. This has completely turned me off of using the iOS application for any work input, only for viewing. The newest update got me excited, but then killed my excitement haha. Now when a cell is selected, there’s a pop up of the contents to view but only to view, to edit the cell, it goes back to the original way of editing. If there was a way to edit the contents within the pop up view of the contents, that would change everything. Please think about it!
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Good, with exceptions.
by Tewithersaiyan on 2020/09/18 14:17
This app suffers from the same problems afflicting other google apps on the mobile/tablet platform: not all of the original functions are available. I am a student who uses a 2020 iPad Pro, and the other day I ran into a problem on sheets when I discovered that I was unable to do very basic things such as create a function for data I’d input, or switch the values on the x and y axis of a graph. Overall, it’s a very polished and functional app, but it is brought down by the fact that in the very least there is no iPad version of the app with all the functions the PC version has. Would be 5 stars if not for this problem. Other apps, like Google Docs, have a similar problem.
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.
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.
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.
Google sheet LOVES JUNE!
by Lindracula on 2021/09/25 03:33
Update months later from below: same problems- always always always wants to load on June 12 everytime no matter what. Fancy to see it progress as the year moves on- same results! Ultimate frustration level as I am required to use this on a daily highly regular basis. Every single day this app doesn’t load and when it does it loads to a month ago and blank. I have to close the app and reopen it a minimum of 4-5 times every single day just to get a very easy part of my job done and here this app is the most difficult part. Its just as bad on my iPad now as my phone at loading- complete and utter junk. If I didn’t have to use this app I wouldn’t. Do better please! This is a newer iPhone and a brand new iPad Pro that I’m using this app on. Oi its frustrating!
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.
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
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.
Make like the web version
by plat-o-pus on 2021/02/11 01:43
For experienced spreadsheet users, the app version of Sheets is really terrible. It would not allow you to use any keyboard shortcuts even if you own Apple’s Magic Keyboard. I also do not understand why it would not show the top drop down menu like the web version. This is a very trimmed version of the original and it is really painful to be productive while using it. I do not understand why it produces a lot of errors when using formulas such as GoogleFinance. In the App it would endlessly display “...getting data” while if I open the same file in Safari using web version of sheets it retrieves the data instantly. I deleted it and open Sheets inside Safari. You will be very thankful that it operates normal that way.
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.
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.
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.
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 :)
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.
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~~!
Months of data RUINED
by Nickickk on 2020/12/31 02:45
Everything was working fine until I opened another app. When I switched back to sheets, the app restarted. I opened the spreadsheet file and half of my cells are mixed up and scrambled all together!!! I’ve never seen this before in my entire life! All my cells contains random info from other cells and my formulas are all ruined! I cannot undo or find a way to restore my spreadsheet! It’s been hours and I cannot find a solution! I don’t know what happened but I lost months of data!!! How am I supposed to trust an app that can ruin an extremely important file?! Absolutely scary!!! I am extremely upset and frustrated that my spreadsheet file became ruined for absolutely no reason!!! All I did was open another app, and switched back to sheets and my entire file is all mixed up and ruined!
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.
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!
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!
Crash
by timzter on 2020/07/01 14:25
Alarmy has been unstable lately. A couple of weeks ago, the alarm did not go off at all. Today, the alarm went off but tapping on the notification to get into the app to perform the mission to turn the alarm off, the app crashed. When I then tapped the app's icon to launch it, it crashed again. About the 3rd attempt to launch it, it did launch, but by now, time has elapsed so that it didn't force me to perform the mission. Consequently today's alarm is treated as though it never happened, evidenced by the missing entry in the History. The most basic function of the app must not fail, otherwise this app is useless. I have been using this app for over a year now. But lately it has been unstable and performing unreliably.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Needs Some Work, A Bit Laggy
by MichiruMochi on 2020/10/03 02:24
I have large shared files that I constantly need to look at and work on alongside my coworkers on the same file at the same time. It seems like the iPad/iPhone version is a bit laggy and choppy? And whenever I try to load one of those large files, it crashes. I’ll keep trying or will try offline, but I hope the changes I make get saved to the same file everyone else is working on! Just leaving some feedback! Oh and would also love to have the ability to find words on the page, not just to replace but i nee to search for them to copy and reference for another sheet! So that’d be cool if we got that!
Still a "baby version" of the web app
by iPad4 user on 2020/09/27 15:50
Google, PLEASE start taking iPad seriously. My company does everything in G Suite and your iPad apps lack so much functionality compared to their web versions that they are like having one hand tied to your back. Take a note how Apple or Microsoft does their office apps on iPad and start following. Examples: Many functions that exist in web version are just missing from app - case: you cannot edit graph set to occupy full tab in Sheets. There is no way to edit multiple documents side by side. Also, make it possible to open the documents in Safari when you have multiple user accounts. Now only way for preventing app from hijacking url is to by hand add /u/1 in the the right spot.
