Frustrating interface
by brando711 on 2021/01/22 03:07
Absolutely minimal options for customizing charts, I have to go and open sheets in the web browser to get around this, which is a pain when you’re on a mobile device and trying to get your class work done.
Sooooo slow
by NeoStevemeister on 2021/01/17 02:12
The Android version on my phone opens large sheets no problem. The iPad version? Horribly slow. Switching tabs in a sheet takes forever. I don’t understand why this version is so much slower than the Android version. It’s night and day. I want to use the bigger screen on my tablet, but the poor performance makes it not worth it.
Poor functionality compared to using Sheets on Desktop or in Safari
by SolitaryPixel on 2021/01/14 07:40
The minimalist design makes it impossible to edit documents created on a desktop. Cell values that have urls cannot be edited.
Drive doesn’t work like in the browser
by Polaaaa86 on 2021/01/13 06:53
I download the google drive in my iPad to work better from there and force my to download the app. By the way that’s not the problem, the problem is that i can’t work the same drive/excel like in the browser, the options are so poor, the tools are not complete (actually just have some basic basic options. ) i hope one day can do it better. I’ll continue using in the browser.

Disappointing on the iPad
by andrewk112 on 2021/01/12 01:21
It’s fine to allow you to view spreadsheets but so many missing features (via iPad ux). E.g. I can’t select multiple non-adjacent cells to edit, copy etc. Which seem odd, considering you can multiple select non-adjacent cells when utilizing a fucntion like SUM(). Definitely lacks a lot of functionality that is on their web app.
Very limited functions
by Salim Chain on 2021/01/11 16:33
No multiwindows support, so only 1 sheet open at the same time, no keyboard/mouse support, no data validation, data protect options. It’s only for very basic functions, and if you have the app, google doesn’t let you use the web version, it forces you to open the app. Do not install this app!

Links in cells don’t work
by C2Projects on 2021/01/09 20:12
I know google always likes to F with iOS users by shipping buggy apps on iOS, but the fact that links in cells don’t work at all in the last couple updates is a new low. Previously a little menu would pop up with a choice to follow the link. Not any more ! Google, stop being so petty or buggy - I don’t care which it is - just stop!
Limited features
by alydhiends on 2021/01/09 18:20
I wish all web features are included in this app, esp be able to shift cells.
Update
by Adriana B Barron on 2021/01/09 14:30

Almost perfect but...
by Desiandlegs on 2021/01/03 23:43
I love this app and it does 90% of what I need. I mainly use my iPad for all of my work at home, including keeping track of finances. The one thing I really wish I could do, is open two sheets side by side. iPadOS supports opening two apps side by side but opening 2 of the same window doesn’t work the same way. Five stars if you could make that happen.
You cannot dictate on an iOS device
by Moshamo on 2021/01/03 15:02
This is super annoying and it makes no sense. How come google will integrate the simple function. It Hass to be acrimony with Apple. Unacceptable. Are we going to drop one platform ? is it going to be Apple or is it gonna be Google? I like my iPhoneI should be able to click on his cell and then speak the contents of that cell. This is an easy way to make lists and assign them to people in your organization. Simple functionality
Annoying Jumping Error
by aschu94 on 2021/01/03 01:08
It amazes me that this hasn’t been fixed. I use this app ALL the time, one way is as a checkbook. Every time I try to edit a cell, it jumps way below my text and I can’t see anything above or AT the cell row I’m trying to edit. SO annoying, almost unusable in a mobile app. Somehow this has never been fixed and can’t really be hard at all to do so.
Crashing Constantly
by m'lord is in the house on 2021/01/02 18:06
This app works for smaller files for me, but I have a large spreadsheet with several tabs and built out functions, and it crashes every single time I use it. So frustrating. I’ve tried everything and nothing has worked.
Ok app..
by JonnyBrasil on 2021/01/02 18:02
An early review i did was that its a good app. Maybe its ok for 5min use. I tried now to actually work on it.. O M G.. It’s very flawed to work on an IPAD. Basic things like creating a formula that references another tab, or selecting one cell, and then holding shift and selecting another cell (multiple cell selection).. basic basic BASIC things... DONT WORK.. Maybe ok for a very very light user.. Google.. can you be Google and step it up? iPad is a super powerful machine - need the Software to step up to the hardware level. Thanks
Just use a computer
by cae223 on 2021/01/02 17:10
It’s great to have sheets available on my ipad, but that’s the extent of the convenience (basically, you can read it and make minor edits). It was impossible to edit the same sheet in Chrome (despite being logged in) which was very frustrating. Issues: half of my shortcuts don’t seem to work here (despite working fine on laptop), and it’s incredibly difficult to read any formula errors or drag a formula down multiple cells. Not going to use this unless I absolutely have to.

Great app but some problems
by brandon searls on 2020/12/31 03:28
I love it, it works really well. But sometimes I try to click on a worksheet I have saved and it completely shuts my app down and crashes. This needs to be fixed but overall I love google sheets. Would be nice if the cells were expanded more so you could fit more data in the worksheet
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!
Amazing idea!
by SaveEarth20 on 2020/12/30 22:49
I love Google Sheets! Even thought I uses it for listing, I love how the app allows different layouts and themes. I can schedule my day! It is so similar to Exel, some cases even better. I totally recommend downloading this app. I gave it 4 stars because there is one reason I don’t like it: When I print a sheet, it always comes out in landscape and the other cells not written in is gone.
Enjoy it!
by Kdawg55121 on 2020/12/30 03:30
It’s a great app! I enjoy the different templates that it provides! Just wish there would be a 2021 calendar available (it’s 12/29/20)....there’s still a 2019 calendar available, but what about 2021??
App shuts down automatically
by Concerned.User.123 on 2020/12/29 17:26
When scrolling thru the data entered, the app kicks me out completely. This has been happening for 2-3 weeks now. I have updated my phone software, power cycled, removed the app and reinstalled it. Any other suggestions?
Always crashes!
by DGrey0889 on 2020/12/27 03:45
Every time I’ve tried to edit or even just view a shared document, it closes the app on my IPhone 7. I’ve deleted the app, reloaded it, made sure I’ve updated to the latest version and still crashes every 15 seconds. I’ve tried since February to use it periodically and finally just giving up and deleting for good.

Bug
by martasalizhyk on 2020/12/21 19:56
Hi, the app is amazing for managing almost anything. However, I caught a little bug for the iphone users — if I tap on a link of the sheet of a table, a link for every sheet takes me to the very first sheet of the table. Not sure if explained clear enough, but this fix would make an amazing improvement for UX of iphone users
No Paste Values
by BecauseItsHard on 2020/12/21 00:41
So, this is a spreadsheet that does not have a way to copy formulae and paste just the values. Inconceivable!
I hate this app

This app never loads my sheet properly so I can edit it. I always have to login on my laptop
Miles behind its competitors in usability.
by Selvius on 2020/12/16 03:59
First time user of G Suite Productivity, and I mistakenly expected to be productive. Attempting to open a linked file shared with me, in order to make edits. Your website keeps directing me to the App Store, despite already downloading the app, while your app has no way to open a link. I’ve wasted 20 minutes trying to perform a 60-second task, and will simply have to request the file be re-sent in a Microsoft or Apple format. To top it off, your in-app help links to PC-only instructions. Poor design, poor support, and a counterproductive productivity tool.
Limited use on iPad
by JennOchoa on 2020/12/16 02:26
This would be great if I could do the same things on my iPad as I can on my PC, such as adding a link to a cell, freezing rows and columns, or filtering. Basic stuff really. I don’t understand why these features are not included!

Ton of Missing Features for iPad
by iPad + Keyboard + Mouse on 2020/12/14 21:43
I used my iPad as my primary computer with a keyboard and mouse. There is poor support for this configuration. You will have a ton of missing features (like cell formatting) and get frustrated with basic UI problems (can’t drag to select multiple cells).

Can't change font to "Calibri"
by jfresh330 on 2020/12/13 00:00
There's currently a bug that makes it so that I cannot change my font to Calibri. The font says it's Arial, so I try to change it and when I tap on Calibri, the blue check mark doesn't appear, indicating I selected the font. I've tried almost every other font, but this only happens with the Calibri font, which is the font I use for all my spreadsheets. I'm able to change to any other font EXCEPT for Calibri.
Worthless app
by Obese pony on 2020/12/12 18:57
Google forces you to download an app to use google docs then it still doesn’t let you edit! It just keeps saying get the app when you try despite an app already being downloaded. What a waste of time.
Garbage App
by Boris's Mm on 2020/12/12 15:22
I have on two occasions lost a ton of content, fist while trying to enter something in a cell; and then today, an entire column of information disappeared that my client had just inputted. I simply was trying to enlarge the screen so I could read it and, boom! Gone. I am deleting this app right now.
Worst app - use in web instead
by S.Di on 2020/12/08 13:47
This app is so bad on so many levels. There are no keyboard shortcuts, you are severely limited in what you can do. Google needs to get their act together and finally make this a full featured app. You are infinitely better off to just use google sheets in browser

Pissing me off!!!!
by Graham Elfrink on 2020/12/04 19:17
The app simply does not work for what I need to do. I am supposed to be signing up for a meet time and I was sent a link to a sheets to do so. When I click the link it opens up the page but I can’t edit it so I click the edit button in the top right. Upon doing so a pop up shows up on the bottom of my screen. I click get app and download the app. I reload the entire page and go to click edit again. The Same pop up comes up and I’m forced to press get app. It brings me too the App Store where I click open. It opens the app and the sheet I’m trying to access is not there. I spent 30 minutes trying to do this before hurling my phone at the wall. Now I am not scheduled from r a meeting and my phone is broken.
Still no support for the iOS share sheet 😕
by SeriouslyDave on 2020/11/30 22:15
I really don’t like using this app on iOS. This is one of the reasons why. If I could replace Google sheets with a browser-based product, I would.
Just Use the Browser
by puritan on 2020/11/30 08:29
Super gimped functionality. Can’t cut/copy/paste rows or columns. Pretty essential operation that you can do on the iPad OS version of Safari, but can’t do in the app.

by Mieggs on 2020/11/29 21:38
I like this app for a number of reasons except mobile don’t have a lot of functions compared to tablet or computer form online. Which I have trouble with because I have to either find videos or search to how to do functions differently on phone version please update.
Frustrating
by downhedigs on 2020/11/25 06:11
I realize that Google Sheets iOS iPhone app is not intended to be a replacement for the pc based application. I don’t expect it to be. However, it is absolutely infuriating that the app refreshes every time you switch applications and/or every time your device screen locks. Need to go look up some information in a web browser or in an email to input into your sheet? Have to look away for a few seconds and your device locked? Get ready to have to find the workbook, reopen it, switch to the sheet you were working on, and scroll to the cell you need to work in.

by Soulookami on 2020/11/22 20:06
I really like google sheets on the computer, but for some reason I can ever use the app on my phone for more than a minute or two before it completely crashes. This makes it practically unusable for me on the phone as I can’t even keep the document open long enough to look at anything. This is a more recent development in the last few months, I never had a problem with it before this year.

by stadi0725 on 2020/11/03 19:39
This iPad version of google sheets needs a lot of work to be used like the original in-browser version. Too many functions are just missing which make the experience frustrating. Please revamp this app to include simple but important details, such as different paste options, drag-down copying and most other elements you can find on the browser version but not on this horribly depleted iPad app.

They made me download the app
by positivekywy on 2020/10/30 04:24
Instead of letting me use the mobile web version (which Google prioritizes as important for SEO purposes), it forced me to download the app if I wanted to engage with it on my phone. Very duplicative and poor user experience. I literally downloaded the app for 5 seconds to make a response, only to delete it again.

Really terrible on iPad
by dangerzone_sg on 2020/10/22 20:25
The editing experience is absolutely terrible on the iPad. It’s slow, you have to go through multiple steps to change the font color, you can’t copy and paste cells...it’s really bad.

by ariascreations on 2020/10/22 17:45
I can view my spreadsheets but the minute I try to edit them the app crashes.That’s the main issue but I also don’t understand why there are so many apps for Google why can’t Google Drive just let us edit the documents too? I can’t edit my document anyway so there was no point in downloading this app!

Great App But Dark Mode Has Issues
by Ryder Cook on 2020/10/20 23:24
This is a great app but when dark mode is on the spreadsheet is also dark, which is inconvenient when something on the spreadsheet is blacked out. It would be great if spreadsheet would stay white even with dark mode turned on.

“Dark mode”
by Ivanp06 on 2020/10/20 15:55
Stop defaulting to the new inverted color mode. It looks awful, and a lazy way to implement dark mode. A true dark mode should retain the colors of the cell, and not flip them.

by HustinDay on 2020/10/20 03:52

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.
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.
Will be perfect with some fixes
by ltshep on 2018/05/19 17:14
Google drive is already my go-to for documents and spreadsheets (I don’t really use slideshows, but if I ever need to, it’s the default for me there too). I don’t edit my sheets too often on mobile, as it’s simply much easier to use the desktop site, but it’s great for viewing. The desktop site has it’s issues. Merged cells are impossible to move accurately in any direction but upward, zooming makes lines appear between and within cells that only disappear once reloaded, or zoomed back to 100%, but reappear upon scrolling. But, those aren’t present on the app. The only complaint I have for the app is the ease of use, but a mouse and keyboard will always be easier to use than just a touch-screen.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Amazing FREE program!
by Bluswept on 2017/10/10 14:16
If college taught me anything, it’s that Google’s FREE alternatives to Microsoft Office programs are AMAZING. It’s not that there’s more features, it’s simply the simplicity. I don’t need to be an advanced programmer in order to figure out how to do things within Sheets. Even if I don’t know, a quick google search results in a very simple step by step guide by google that cuts right to the chase. It’s easy to collaborate, too. Simply add the person/people’s email address(es) and they’ll be sent a link that will let them access the sheet, and you can give them specific permissions, or you can just create a shareable link.
Good for when you’re in a pinch
by Bigbadserrao on 2017/12/02 18:31
Of all the concepts to survive the desktop to mobile shift in our computing lives, none of them make less sense to me than trying to create spreadsheets on a touch screen. It’s just a task that benefits from the percussion of a mouse and the wide screens of desktop machines so much. Yet, google sheets tries to get this right and mostly succeeds. You’re still going to make lots of errors and be frustrated by the nested menus of settings but the tight integration with google drive, impressive feature set and collaborative capabilities makes this a great solution for minor spreadsheet edits and reference.
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.
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.
Wish I could edit from links people send me
by micste6643 on 2020/03/17 16:41
I commonly will be sent a link to google sheets from someone and when I select it, it’s goes to a read-only view in a browser saying that I should open it in the app to edit. When I follow the given links to download/open the app, it doesn’t take me to the sheet that I originally linked from. In addition, there is no easy way to find a link to an editable sheet. Seems to defeat the purpose of having google sheet links and my ability to collaborate with others. When you finally can get into the app and edit a sheet, it’s a good product. Just awful for any sort of mobile use without being able to share easily.
Love that I can access my spreadsheets on any device, but editing is buggy on iPhone
by TechnoCritic on 2018/12/29 18:12
It’s awesome to be able to access my spreadsheets anywhere, anytime. I’ve completely converted all of my personal spreadsheets to Google Sheets. My only complaint is, editing spreadsheets on the phone is cumbersome, especially when editing a cell that contains a function. After placing my cursor at the point where I want to type, the contents of the edit field are moved so that the cursor is at the far left edge of the field. As I type, the cursor stays in this location, meaning that I can’t see what I’m typing as I type it. This seems to be a bug in the form field control. Wish this could be fixed.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great for wedding guest lists, other collaborations
by Wwndyyyy on 2017/11/04 18:00
This is so much safer, easier and better than sending a spreadsheet around to many people and trying to keep up with the current, correct version. It alerts you when others make changes and you can see every single change (and who made it)back to the beginning of the document. You literally cannot f this thing up. Do I wish sometimes it had full excel functionality? Of course - but that's like saying I wish horses could fly - it would be optimal but it's not part of the design :)
Good 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!
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!
Worst app ever!
by KernNBurn on 2018/12/15 00:51
Google sheets is the worst app ever! My life was easy until I downloaded google sheets. Not only does it mess up the split window on my iPad Pro, it even messed up google drive. Using google sheets is the equivalent of putting another hole in my head! The app it works worst with is google drive! How does that make sense? Google drive is easily navigated until sheets or other apps are also introduced, then navigating them becomes less discernible than interstate spaghetti bowls. Google sheets is so horrible I’m going to ditch google drive and every other app google offers. All any of them do is get in the way! Google maps is the second worst! Wait, I forgot about Chrome, what a computer overloading pile of dog crap! The world will be a better place when google is removed from it!
Great app for my needs
by Texwad on 2017/10/30 03:27
Pros-This app has made my life really easy being able to track several metrics on all of my devices. When I am on the go I can update from my phone or tablet and then once I’m home or at the office, I can continue to update, analyze, then print once ready. Cons- Wish that it would open to the last cell modified. One spreadsheet that I use has over 15,000 rows and I have to scroll to the bottom to get to the new data and update which takes some time. It would be nice to have it open where I left off.
Everything you would expect
by Sir Amelius on 2018/03/01 11:38
Definitely like the app. Interface is intuitive. Does everything the average user would want it to do. However, I give it 4 stars because it won’t run script. I’ve created buttons that when clicked, causes a cell to increase in value by x amount or decrease by the same amount; the same buttons, when you open the file in the app, do not function in the same way. Instead it treats the buttons as just images. You can’t access script editor on this app either. Would be cool if you could allow the app to run custom scripts and create/edit script.
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.
Overall Good Business Tool
by Bnv2264 on 2018/03/11 03:35
I use this everyday and almost all day. If I didn’t have google sheets I wouldn’t be able to keep things organized in the business I run. I also love that you can see others and share with others. Such a great platform. On a side note- it does sometimes run slow and freeze with a large amount of people running a shared document. It sometimes makes me reload and refresh and I understand having to but wish it wasn’t so often. Also, at times it can overwrite others’ text. Like I said overall great program and so grateful!
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!
The concept is great
by kimtheo on 2020/05/06 19:44
However the ease in using them could be better. I use sheets often during my workouts. So after each set I enter the weight and reps completed. During the next set, my screen will black out and when I click it back on, the unpredictability of whether sheets will open up exactly where I was or if I need to click on the title page and then the page at the bottom of the screen again takes over. Time is spent scrolling and clicking on between the “numbers only” board and the letter board. It’s clunky. I don’t know what the answer is to make it better, I just know that it can be. Thank you!

Frustrating interface
by brando711 on 2021/01/22 03:07
Absolutely minimal options for customizing charts, I have to go and open sheets in the web browser to get around this, which is a pain when you’re on a mobile device and trying to get your class work done.
Sooooo slow
by NeoStevemeister on 2021/01/17 02:12
The Android version on my phone opens large sheets no problem. The iPad version? Horribly slow. Switching tabs in a sheet takes forever. I don’t understand why this version is so much slower than the Android version. It’s night and day. I want to use the bigger screen on my tablet, but the poor performance makes it not worth it.
Poor functionality compared to using Sheets on Desktop or in Safari
by SolitaryPixel on 2021/01/14 07:40
The minimalist design makes it impossible to edit documents created on a desktop. Cell values that have urls cannot be edited.
Drive doesn’t work like in the browser
by Polaaaa86 on 2021/01/13 06:53
I download the google drive in my iPad to work better from there and force my to download the app. By the way that’s not the problem, the problem is that i can’t work the same drive/excel like in the browser, the options are so poor, the tools are not complete (actually just have some basic basic options. ) i hope one day can do it better. I’ll continue using in the browser.

Disappointing on the iPad
by andrewk112 on 2021/01/12 01:21
It’s fine to allow you to view spreadsheets but so many missing features (via iPad ux). E.g. I can’t select multiple non-adjacent cells to edit, copy etc. Which seem odd, considering you can multiple select non-adjacent cells when utilizing a fucntion like SUM(). Definitely lacks a lot of functionality that is on their web app.
Very limited functions
by Salim Chain on 2021/01/11 16:33
No multiwindows support, so only 1 sheet open at the same time, no keyboard/mouse support, no data validation, data protect options. It’s only for very basic functions, and if you have the app, google doesn’t let you use the web version, it forces you to open the app. Do not install this app!

Links in cells don’t work
by C2Projects on 2021/01/09 20:12
I know google always likes to F with iOS users by shipping buggy apps on iOS, but the fact that links in cells don’t work at all in the last couple updates is a new low. Previously a little menu would pop up with a choice to follow the link. Not any more ! Google, stop being so petty or buggy - I don’t care which it is - just stop!
Limited features
by alydhiends on 2021/01/09 18:20
I wish all web features are included in this app, esp be able to shift cells.
Update
by Adriana B Barron on 2021/01/09 14:30
I would give it a 5 star but I dislike how long it takes for them to update with the new year, We are in Jan 2021 and they still have not updated with the 2021 calendar.

Almost perfect but...
by Desiandlegs on 2021/01/03 23:43
I love this app and it does 90% of what I need. I mainly use my iPad for all of my work at home, including keeping track of finances. The one thing I really wish I could do, is open two sheets side by side. iPadOS supports opening two apps side by side but opening 2 of the same window doesn’t work the same way. Five stars if you could make that happen.
You cannot dictate on an iOS device
by Moshamo on 2021/01/03 15:02
This is super annoying and it makes no sense. How come google will integrate the simple function. It Hass to be acrimony with Apple. Unacceptable. Are we going to drop one platform ? is it going to be Apple or is it gonna be Google? I like my iPhoneI should be able to click on his cell and then speak the contents of that cell. This is an easy way to make lists and assign them to people in your organization. Simple functionality
Annoying Jumping Error
by aschu94 on 2021/01/03 01:08
It amazes me that this hasn’t been fixed. I use this app ALL the time, one way is as a checkbook. Every time I try to edit a cell, it jumps way below my text and I can’t see anything above or AT the cell row I’m trying to edit. SO annoying, almost unusable in a mobile app. Somehow this has never been fixed and can’t really be hard at all to do so.
Crashing Constantly
by m'lord is in the house on 2021/01/02 18:06
This app works for smaller files for me, but I have a large spreadsheet with several tabs and built out functions, and it crashes every single time I use it. So frustrating. I’ve tried everything and nothing has worked.
Ok app..
by JonnyBrasil on 2021/01/02 18:02
An early review i did was that its a good app. Maybe its ok for 5min use. I tried now to actually work on it.. O M G.. It’s very flawed to work on an IPAD. Basic things like creating a formula that references another tab, or selecting one cell, and then holding shift and selecting another cell (multiple cell selection).. basic basic BASIC things... DONT WORK.. Maybe ok for a very very light user.. Google.. can you be Google and step it up? iPad is a super powerful machine - need the Software to step up to the hardware level. Thanks
Just use a computer
by cae223 on 2021/01/02 17:10
It’s great to have sheets available on my ipad, but that’s the extent of the convenience (basically, you can read it and make minor edits). It was impossible to edit the same sheet in Chrome (despite being logged in) which was very frustrating. Issues: half of my shortcuts don’t seem to work here (despite working fine on laptop), and it’s incredibly difficult to read any formula errors or drag a formula down multiple cells. Not going to use this unless I absolutely have to.

Great app but some problems
by brandon searls on 2020/12/31 03:28
I love it, it works really well. But sometimes I try to click on a worksheet I have saved and it completely shuts my app down and crashes. This needs to be fixed but overall I love google sheets. Would be nice if the cells were expanded more so you could fit more data in the worksheet
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!
Amazing idea!
by SaveEarth20 on 2020/12/30 22:49
I love Google Sheets! Even thought I uses it for listing, I love how the app allows different layouts and themes. I can schedule my day! It is so similar to Exel, some cases even better. I totally recommend downloading this app. I gave it 4 stars because there is one reason I don’t like it: When I print a sheet, it always comes out in landscape and the other cells not written in is gone.
Enjoy it!
by Kdawg55121 on 2020/12/30 03:30
It’s a great app! I enjoy the different templates that it provides! Just wish there would be a 2021 calendar available (it’s 12/29/20)....there’s still a 2019 calendar available, but what about 2021??
App shuts down automatically
by Concerned.User.123 on 2020/12/29 17:26
When scrolling thru the data entered, the app kicks me out completely. This has been happening for 2-3 weeks now. I have updated my phone software, power cycled, removed the app and reinstalled it. Any other suggestions?
Always crashes!
by DGrey0889 on 2020/12/27 03:45
Every time I’ve tried to edit or even just view a shared document, it closes the app on my IPhone 7. I’ve deleted the app, reloaded it, made sure I’ve updated to the latest version and still crashes every 15 seconds. I’ve tried since February to use it periodically and finally just giving up and deleting for good.

Bug
by martasalizhyk on 2020/12/21 19:56
Hi, the app is amazing for managing almost anything. However, I caught a little bug for the iphone users — if I tap on a link of the sheet of a table, a link for every sheet takes me to the very first sheet of the table. Not sure if explained clear enough, but this fix would make an amazing improvement for UX of iphone users
No Paste Values
by BecauseItsHard on 2020/12/21 00:41

Miles behind its competitors in usability.
by Selvius on 2020/12/16 03:59
First time user of G Suite Productivity, and I mistakenly expected to be productive. Attempting to open a linked file shared with me, in order to make edits. Your website keeps directing me to the App Store, despite already downloading the app, while your app has no way to open a link. I’ve wasted 20 minutes trying to perform a 60-second task, and will simply have to request the file be re-sent in a Microsoft or Apple format. To top it off, your in-app help links to PC-only instructions. Poor design, poor support, and a counterproductive productivity tool.
Limited use on iPad
by JennOchoa on 2020/12/16 02:26
This would be great if I could do the same things on my iPad as I can on my PC, such as adding a link to a cell, freezing rows and columns, or filtering. Basic stuff really. I don’t understand why these features are not included!

Ton of Missing Features for iPad
by iPad + Keyboard + Mouse on 2020/12/14 21:43

Can't change font to "Calibri"
by jfresh330 on 2020/12/13 00:00
There's currently a bug that makes it so that I cannot change my font to Calibri. The font says it's Arial, so I try to change it and when I tap on Calibri, the blue check mark doesn't appear, indicating I selected the font. I've tried almost every other font, but this only happens with the Calibri font, which is the font I use for all my spreadsheets. I'm able to change to any other font EXCEPT for Calibri.
Worthless app
by Obese pony on 2020/12/12 18:57
Google forces you to download an app to use google docs then it still doesn’t let you edit! It just keeps saying get the app when you try despite an app already being downloaded. What a waste of time.
Garbage App
by Boris's Mm on 2020/12/12 15:22
I have on two occasions lost a ton of content, fist while trying to enter something in a cell; and then today, an entire column of information disappeared that my client had just inputted. I simply was trying to enlarge the screen so I could read it and, boom! Gone. I am deleting this app right now.
Worst app - use in web instead
by S.Di on 2020/12/08 13:47
This app is so bad on so many levels. There are no keyboard shortcuts, you are severely limited in what you can do. Google needs to get their act together and finally make this a full featured app. You are infinitely better off to just use google sheets in browser

Pissing me off!!!!
by Graham Elfrink on 2020/12/04 19:17
The app simply does not work for what I need to do. I am supposed to be signing up for a meet time and I was sent a link to a sheets to do so. When I click the link it opens up the page but I can’t edit it so I click the edit button in the top right. Upon doing so a pop up shows up on the bottom of my screen. I click get app and download the app. I reload the entire page and go to click edit again. The Same pop up comes up and I’m forced to press get app. It brings me too the App Store where I click open. It opens the app and the sheet I’m trying to access is not there. I spent 30 minutes trying to do this before hurling my phone at the wall. Now I am not scheduled from r a meeting and my phone is broken.
Still no support for the iOS share sheet 😕
by SeriouslyDave on 2020/11/30 22:15
I really don’t like using this app on iOS. This is one of the reasons why. If I could replace Google sheets with a browser-based product, I would.
Just Use the Browser
by puritan on 2020/11/30 08:29
Super gimped functionality. Can’t cut/copy/paste rows or columns. Pretty essential operation that you can do on the iPad OS version of Safari, but can’t do in the app.
Could use an update
by Mieggs on 2020/11/29 21:38
I like this app for a number of reasons except mobile don’t have a lot of functions compared to tablet or computer form online. Which I have trouble with because I have to either find videos or search to how to do functions differently on phone version please update.
Frustrating
by downhedigs on 2020/11/25 06:11
I realize that Google Sheets iOS iPhone app is not intended to be a replacement for the pc based application. I don’t expect it to be. However, it is absolutely infuriating that the app refreshes every time you switch applications and/or every time your device screen locks. Need to go look up some information in a web browser or in an email to input into your sheet? Have to look away for a few seconds and your device locked? Get ready to have to find the workbook, reopen it, switch to the sheet you were working on, and scroll to the cell you need to work in.

by Soulookami on 2020/11/22 20:06
I really like google sheets on the computer, but for some reason I can ever use the app on my phone for more than a minute or two before it completely crashes. This makes it practically unusable for me on the phone as I can’t even keep the document open long enough to look at anything. This is a more recent development in the last few months, I never had a problem with it before this year.

by stadi0725 on 2020/11/03 19:39
This iPad version of google sheets needs a lot of work to be used like the original in-browser version. Too many functions are just missing which make the experience frustrating. Please revamp this app to include simple but important details, such as different paste options, drag-down copying and most other elements you can find on the browser version but not on this horribly depleted iPad app.

They made me download the app
by positivekywy on 2020/10/30 04:24
Instead of letting me use the mobile web version (which Google prioritizes as important for SEO purposes), it forced me to download the app if I wanted to engage with it on my phone. Very duplicative and poor user experience. I literally downloaded the app for 5 seconds to make a response, only to delete it again.

Trying to use it on ipad but some really basic text edit features of sheets are nonexistent in the app for ipad rendering it unuseable.

The app version doesn’t have all the features the online version have, and they discriminate against apple users.
App keeps closing

App doesn’t stay open on 2020 Ipad 11.. Can’t use app thanks.
No insert date icon
by Absolute Zxero on 2020/10/25 05:16
The Android version has a calendar icon to insert a date fast. Why not in iOS? That’s not fair

Super easy to use
Zoom
by rachelsdad on 2020/10/23 15:09
Easy to use even for an old man like me. It has been reliable and efficient and flexible for all our needs in meeting as a non profit with clients and associates. It was a wonder during the pandemic and I have decided not to return to the old brick and mortar meeting format which we used previously. Thank you Zoom.
Difficult!
by norshoregal on 2020/10/23 14:30
After downloading the app on my iPad, I was unable to figure out how to enter information into the cells of a spreadsheet with names and dates for events. I tried many things, but nothing worked. How can I find support for using this app?
Really terrible on iPad
by dangerzone_sg on 2020/10/22 20:25
The editing experience is absolutely terrible on the iPad. It’s slow, you have to go through multiple steps to change the font color, you can’t copy and paste cells...it’s really bad.
App keeps crashing
by ariascreations on 2020/10/22 17:45
I can view my spreadsheets but the minute I try to edit them the app crashes.That’s the main issue but I also don’t understand why there are so many apps for Google why can’t Google Drive just let us edit the documents too? I can’t edit my document anyway so there was no point in downloading this app!
Love it use it every year.
by ffghjffyhhbb on 2020/10/22 11:32

Great format
Almost like Excel, but cloud based
by SteelMan774 on 2020/10/21 19:02
Almost as good as MS Excel but it’s more mobile than Office365 since it’s always online (as long as you have connectivity) you can access it with just a login.
Awesomeness of Excel but better
by LatinSocialite on 2020/10/21 13:16
I dont know why someone waste their review on a product in politics! This is an excellent program that is friendly and easy to use, no need to know Javascript or any other coding language! Its perfect for my 10 year school work and for my work staff to share in realtime!
Better than Regular Excell
by CarlaGabal on 2020/10/20 23:50
I love using this app because I have everything at my fingertips instead having to sign in everything in my gmail account ( which a secondary one ). And being able to share it from there to people that’s doesn’t have a gmail email in fantastic. I really have more control of my finances using this app from my phone !
Great App But Dark Mode Has Issues
by Ryder Cook on 2020/10/20 23:24
This is a great app but when dark mode is on the spreadsheet is also dark, which is inconvenient when something on the spreadsheet is blacked out. It would be great if spreadsheet would stay white even with dark mode turned on.
Great app! Very easy to use!
by mannjam on 2020/10/20 17:11
Very easy to use and intuitive.
“Dark mode”
by Ivanp06 on 2020/10/20 15:55
Stop defaulting to the new inverted color mode. It looks awful, and a lazy way to implement dark mode. A true dark mode should retain the colors of the cell, and not flip them.
Good app
by lakshmanas on 2020/10/20 07:36
It is a very useful app
Sheets force close
by HustinDay on 2020/10/20 03:52
Every time I try to open a highly used sheet of mine, the app loads the sheet after 30-45 seconds. I can see the data for roughly 5-10 seconds before the sheet force closes. Not a good experience on mobile.
Love the collaboration features

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.
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.
Will be perfect with some fixes
by ltshep on 2018/05/19 17:14
Google drive is already my go-to for documents and spreadsheets (I don’t really use slideshows, but if I ever need to, it’s the default for me there too). I don’t edit my sheets too often on mobile, as it’s simply much easier to use the desktop site, but it’s great for viewing. The desktop site has it’s issues. Merged cells are impossible to move accurately in any direction but upward, zooming makes lines appear between and within cells that only disappear once reloaded, or zoomed back to 100%, but reappear upon scrolling. But, those aren’t present on the app. The only complaint I have for the app is the ease of use, but a mouse and keyboard will always be easier to use than just a touch-screen.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Amazing FREE program!
by Bluswept on 2017/10/10 14:16
If college taught me anything, it’s that Google’s FREE alternatives to Microsoft Office programs are AMAZING. It’s not that there’s more features, it’s simply the simplicity. I don’t need to be an advanced programmer in order to figure out how to do things within Sheets. Even if I don’t know, a quick google search results in a very simple step by step guide by google that cuts right to the chase. It’s easy to collaborate, too. Simply add the person/people’s email address(es) and they’ll be sent a link that will let them access the sheet, and you can give them specific permissions, or you can just create a shareable link.
Good for when you’re in a pinch
by Bigbadserrao on 2017/12/02 18:31
Of all the concepts to survive the desktop to mobile shift in our computing lives, none of them make less sense to me than trying to create spreadsheets on a touch screen. It’s just a task that benefits from the percussion of a mouse and the wide screens of desktop machines so much. Yet, google sheets tries to get this right and mostly succeeds. You’re still going to make lots of errors and be frustrated by the nested menus of settings but the tight integration with google drive, impressive feature set and collaborative capabilities makes this a great solution for minor spreadsheet edits and reference.
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.
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.
Wish I could edit from links people send me
by micste6643 on 2020/03/17 16:41
I commonly will be sent a link to google sheets from someone and when I select it, it’s goes to a read-only view in a browser saying that I should open it in the app to edit. When I follow the given links to download/open the app, it doesn’t take me to the sheet that I originally linked from. In addition, there is no easy way to find a link to an editable sheet. Seems to defeat the purpose of having google sheet links and my ability to collaborate with others. When you finally can get into the app and edit a sheet, it’s a good product. Just awful for any sort of mobile use without being able to share easily.
Love that I can access my spreadsheets on any device, but editing is buggy on iPhone
by TechnoCritic on 2018/12/29 18:12
It’s awesome to be able to access my spreadsheets anywhere, anytime. I’ve completely converted all of my personal spreadsheets to Google Sheets. My only complaint is, editing spreadsheets on the phone is cumbersome, especially when editing a cell that contains a function. After placing my cursor at the point where I want to type, the contents of the edit field are moved so that the cursor is at the far left edge of the field. As I type, the cursor stays in this location, meaning that I can’t see what I’m typing as I type it. This seems to be a bug in the form field control. Wish this could be fixed.
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.
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
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.
Good usage, bad implementation

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.
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.
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.
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.
Great for wedding guest lists, other collaborations
by Wwndyyyy on 2017/11/04 18:00
This is so much safer, easier and better than sending a spreadsheet around to many people and trying to keep up with the current, correct version. It alerts you when others make changes and you can see every single change (and who made it)back to the beginning of the document. You literally cannot f this thing up. Do I wish sometimes it had full excel functionality? Of course - but that's like saying I wish horses could fly - it would be optimal but it's not part of the design :)
Good 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!
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!
Worst app ever!
by KernNBurn on 2018/12/15 00:51
Google sheets is the worst app ever! My life was easy until I downloaded google sheets. Not only does it mess up the split window on my iPad Pro, it even messed up google drive. Using google sheets is the equivalent of putting another hole in my head! The app it works worst with is google drive! How does that make sense? Google drive is easily navigated until sheets or other apps are also introduced, then navigating them becomes less discernible than interstate spaghetti bowls. Google sheets is so horrible I’m going to ditch google drive and every other app google offers. All any of them do is get in the way! Google maps is the second worst! Wait, I forgot about Chrome, what a computer overloading pile of dog crap! The world will be a better place when google is removed from it!
Great app for my needs
by Texwad on 2017/10/30 03:27
Pros-This app has made my life really easy being able to track several metrics on all of my devices. When I am on the go I can update from my phone or tablet and then once I’m home or at the office, I can continue to update, analyze, then print once ready. Cons- Wish that it would open to the last cell modified. One spreadsheet that I use has over 15,000 rows and I have to scroll to the bottom to get to the new data and update which takes some time. It would be nice to have it open where I left off.
Everything you would expect
by Sir Amelius on 2018/03/01 11:38
Definitely like the app. Interface is intuitive. Does everything the average user would want it to do. However, I give it 4 stars because it won’t run script. I’ve created buttons that when clicked, causes a cell to increase in value by x amount or decrease by the same amount; the same buttons, when you open the file in the app, do not function in the same way. Instead it treats the buttons as just images. You can’t access script editor on this app either. Would be cool if you could allow the app to run custom scripts and create/edit script.
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.
Overall Good Business Tool
by Bnv2264 on 2018/03/11 03:35
I use this everyday and almost all day. If I didn’t have google sheets I wouldn’t be able to keep things organized in the business I run. I also love that you can see others and share with others. Such a great platform. On a side note- it does sometimes run slow and freeze with a large amount of people running a shared document. It sometimes makes me reload and refresh and I understand having to but wish it wasn’t so often. Also, at times it can overwrite others’ text. Like I said overall great program and so grateful!
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!
The concept is great
by kimtheo on 2020/05/06 19:44
However the ease in using them could be better. I use sheets often during my workouts. So after each set I enter the weight and reps completed. During the next set, my screen will black out and when I click it back on, the unpredictability of whether sheets will open up exactly where I was or if I need to click on the title page and then the page at the bottom of the screen again takes over. Time is spent scrolling and clicking on between the “numbers only” board and the letter board. It’s clunky. I don’t know what the answer is to make it better, I just know that it can be. Thank you!
