I love most things about this app, like that it formats smartly (most of the time) and coordinates with other Office apps well, and is generally very easy to use. However, I have seen so far two glaringly stupid issues with it that aren’t even hard to fix. One, I can’t draw a straight line. What the heck is the point of a line function if I can’t make a straight line? Please make this feature actually useful. Two, in a recent update some rocket scientist thought it’d be great to make the page scroll itself back up to the top every time you were idle for more than a few seconds. Spoiler alert: I don’t want my POV to be moved off of where I’m working. Duh. Maybe I sound a little harsh, but I feel no remorse telling someone their idea is stupid if it’s really this stupid, and it is. Three seconds of thought could tell someone that these changes were a bad idea, but they happened anyway. Please un-happen them so I can work effectively using what’s otherwise a nearly perfect word processor.
Well I use Microsoft word at work, the mobile version is vastly inferior. If it were free, I probably couldn’t complain. But, if you want to get the capability of redlining documents and other important work-related actions, you have to purchase the subscription. This is where the trouble begins. Microsoft support is terrible. Several times a year the program won’t work and tells me I need a subscription. I’ve spent hours on the phone with Microsoft since I first purchased this program. There’s some sort of company disconnect between their accounting department and mobile services. This needs to be fixed. Regarding the applications performance, at best it’s OK. It tends to be slow, saving a document while you were working on it is not as straightforward as it should be, and if you want to dictate, you better proofread twice. Many of the desired editing features are not available in this mobile application. Formatting is next to impossible and many many other features are not available. While I don’t think you can expect 100% duplication, iPad cost more than most PCs, have ample memory, and should be capable of handling all of the commands necessary to do a competent job of preparing a word document. And you should not have to have an external keyboard with your iPad to perform the tasks. Bottom line, The program is livable, but not particularly likable.
In most times, the prompt jumps to the very first line after a few second later whenever I touch the middle of the screen to edit a docx file. This is very annoying since my file is of 98 pages. Then I should pull down the scroll bar to the bottom of the document. This happens very often, especially when in Mobile view. The second thing is about the page loading steps or speed. By moving down the scroll bar the pages are loaded incrementally. But it has too many steps to the bottom page. Scrolling down the bar to the bottom of the screen loads pages a little. I couldn’t find a good way to jump to the bottom page at once. And this happens in Mobile view. The third frustrating thing is the reaction speed is not just slow, it’s really slow. When I type a character, say A, that appears in the screen after about 0.3~0.5s. This issue also has something to do with Mobile view, I think. The fourth is about moving the cursor with a long-touch. This not only related to Word but to all the other Office 365 applications I guess. This app adopting the obsolete way shows a convex glass that zoom-in around the cursor when I long-touch the screen. Apple changed the way it moves the cursor since iOS 13 if I’m right. I’m not gonna explain it in detail here but the new way is much elegant and gives seamless experience in editing the text.
As a book editor, I use Word for work, and I love that I can use my Microsoft account to toggle between my computer and device, making editing on the go super easy. Except for the fact that the app is super slow and glitchy, especially when it comes to the comment feature. The comments in the app used to appear exactly as they do on a desktop, in little bubbles. If I wanted a new comment, I’d just create a new bubble. Then for whatever random reason they changed the formatting of the comments so that they appear in a list on the side of the document. Every time you start a new comment, the app opens the entire collection of comments in the document, and if you have a lot of them (which, as an editor, i always do), it takes a minute to open every single one. Worse, the list COVERS the text, so you keep having to open and close the comments. And sometimes, for no reason whatsoever, the program stops allowing you to comment. I spend more time trying to get the app to work than I do editing. I don’t understand why they can’t make the app function exactly as the desktop program. If there was another way to edit on the go, I’d abandon Microsoft altogether.
This app is laggy and wonky as hell. It have a great concept but it is still just a great concept. The lagging is real. You can even see when you try to scroll the pages, it is janky and irritating. Typing is lagged, sometimes a few words behind. ‘Drawing’ is a nice feature but the writings moved a bit after you remove the pencil, so it became really not precise. If I’m writing with my pencil, it shift either to the right or left a bit from where I jot down, making a very not smooth, irritating writing experience. The eraser is even worse. You can erase a word and then the next one won’t, and it brings forward the keyboard instead. The only fix I could do was when that happened, I turn on drawing with fingers and erases with my finger instead. So annoying. If you want to move your writing, it won’t select more than one object at a time, which means you have to move letters by letters, unlike onenote which you could lasso a bunch of stuff. It’s just so annoying. If you’re wondering why I didn’t use onenote, I do use onenote. It’s just this one class that give options of lecture notes in docs format, and we have a bunch of definitions and calculations in a single lecture note, so I typed when it were definitions, and write when doing calculations.
