  • Needs to be able to edit the way it prints.

    by Barashin Mokushi

    Whenever I try to print it, it only prints dual sided, which is fine except that the the next page is printed upside down (flip print)

  • Best since Quickoffice was ruined by Google

    by Saaasnbbbba

    Pretty good app--not as good as original Quickoffice--but quite adequate. My main gripe is inability to create folders for documents stored in my iPhone under the "Documents" folder. Also, too bad there is no icon to directly access files in Sky Drive, like the ones for for Google Docs, Box and Drop Box

  • only missing one thing

    by Zackptg5

    love the app but all of my docs are saved on skydrive. If it had skydrive, it'd be perfect.

  • Muy buena

    by Ftjosedavid

    Realmente de las aplicaciones gratuitas de lo mejor, la recomiendo. Lo único que si les pido mejorar es que pongan la posibilidad de crear carpetas, y tener la posibilidad de guardar todos los documentos en la nube "juntos". Gracias

  • So so.

    by Beekayisa64

    Sometimes it works great. Other times not so great. When I try to save to Dropbox, a lot of times the circle spins and spins and then says no internet connection. Try again and it works. Nothing wrong with internet.

  • Great app

    by Burg1234

    This is by far one of the best apps for your documents. You can pull right from your DropBox, review, revise, edit and save your documents right to the app. Then it will update your DropBox as well.

  • No access

    by Sensei_stokes

    It was working perfect until some files won't let me access them after I close and save .. Please resolve

  • Pretty Darn Good

    by Mack2Nite

    Ok you do not have 100% full capability of the Official Microsoft Word & Excel but this program is awesome. I can email word or excel file from my laptop to my IPad, import them, edit, and email it back out. I can even save the file to my IPad. I can also wirelessly print that doc or spreadsheet because It locates wireless printers. Fonts, colors, formatting is all there. It's clean and smooth. It will take a short bit to get accustom to entering data when working with spreadsheets but Its still fully functional to what I need it for. You can save a few dollars by buying cheaper programs like Documents 2 but prepare yourself for the frustrations that are inherent of cheap programs that have a serious lack of format ability and functionality. Im not a Microsoft power user. I use word and excel to do my school work and also to manage the contracts and order forms for my catering business. This program does everything I need. I have no complaints for $10.

  • Great Office solution for IOS

    by Mrichter1

    This application is one of my core applications and used daily. While it doesn't support every feature I wished it did (i.e. password protected docs) it does have enough functionality to do 95% of what I need while on the road. There is a small bug with Dropbox in the latest update (says "service unavailable" when I try to open, but when I try the second time, it opens fine.) More of an annoyance than a real problem.

  • Ok app

    by Pilot/CFI - Denton

    This is a good app that allows you to store and create you word docs, ppts, excel sheets, etc. I purchased this app when Google took over the Quick Office Pro app. The user interface is way better than Google's. There is very little if any lag when typing. The only thing that would earn this app 5 stars is the ability to organize your documents into folders and password protect them. Otherwise this is a great app, especially when compaired to Google's products.

  • Never a better app made!!!!

    by Appaloosapen

    Since I found this app it has made my job much easier to do on the run. Can update any document that is loaded and works wonders with drop box!!! Live is good!!

  • It's the best office in the App Store

    by Elizabeth Jeffrey

    So many features offered I have not run into any glitch or problem using this and would advise to school papers and slide shows that use iPads

  • Too much eye candy.

    by MikeyG74

    The app is ok for doing basic document editing. But I don't use it very often because of it having too much eye candy. I personally like a basic, stream lined, and a clean appearance. But it does support most cloud servers such as drop box. Over all not a bad app.

  • Nice!

    by Chethetlc

    I look great. I love its graphic. But one thing, i cannot create any folder, every document have to place in one folder. Fix it please

  • Great a& simple

    by Lkjuhgtfcvbmæ

    Its better than the windows office for me. All in one

  • iOS 7 Incompatibility

    by 5eanerz

    I would rate this app with a higher rating if only it were compatible with iOS 7. It's slow. When I type, the typer doesn't keep up with my fingers. It lags and I end up making mistakes that would be avoided if it kept up with my speed. Please enhance the app for iOS 7 and if it works as it says it does, I will reconsider my rating.

  • Exellent

    by Saktos

    This app its so good for edit documents...

  • Excellent app for Editing and starting Microsoft documents

    by Alex82197

    Use this app for school and does what's needed, but minor lagging and needs update for the latest iOS 7

  • Great App

    by Hjn232

    Best office app ever!

  • Good but a suggestion

    by Pam HPE

    Just like anything new there is a learning curve. I've only been using it for a few weeks and getting the hang of it. My only suggestion at this point is that there be an auto save feature. I lost a couple of edits of a document due to this. Maybe there is an auto save on this, but I'm not finding it. Practically every other app I use has this. Very annoying, please add that feature. Otherwise, it's great!!

  • Don't waste your money! Wish I could rate 0 stars

    by beach-girl

    In theory this app should work wonders to make life easier. Instead it is a waste of money. Why? Because there is no auto save feature!!! I will be deleting from all my devices. I've wasted hours typing reports only to have them lost. Double thumbs down.

  • Box Connection

    by Purchaser

    The box connection doesn't work. Everytime I go through the process of logging into Box, the app won't recognize or connect to Box.

  • Miserable waste of time

    by lukeatmenow

    I tried this app on several occasions and was discouraged every time! I spent a lot of time setting up the invoice template deleting formulas in cells that were irrelevant to an invoice. When I finally was finished and printed I was further aggravated to see the entire invoice on one third of a page - too small for anyone to read. Very aggravating!

  • Loses files, can't save updates

    by Zhdallas

    I've used this app just for a shared excel file. Over the past few weeks, I've lost the file and had to completely recreate it, and when I attempt updates the app will lock and edits are not saved. It was ok until these issues, I don't trust it anymore and won't use it.

  • Problem typing in cells

    by Davidneb

    Please can we type in each cell without the big box showing up. I need to see everything that I'm doing. PLEASE FIX !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Useless and Poor Service

    by PSSA

    What a useless company! I considered this app long and hard before buying. The reviews were favorable and the information seemed professional. I use Exel spreadsheets a every day, linked to Dropbox. I cannot find any way to enter formulas, edit cells or calculate balances. I read the help and the FAQ sections. I emailed support and have had no reply in more than a week. I used Quickoffice before so it looks like I will have to go back there. Do not WASTE your money on this app.

  • Bad - can't save edits

    by LazyEngineer

    Blew 10 bucks for a bad editor that doesn't work, and still has adds. Plus a cheesy "activiation" to authorize spamming your e-mail. Don't buy

  • Update from previous version

    by Dude in Dells

    Noticed that my older version of Smart Office was starting to fail. No abilities to print. Saw the newer Smart Office 2 and thinking that I already paid for V1, I'd get a break. After all, it basically the same app. No such luck! Had to pay full price for basically same app. Just a heads up for those who still use the older one and thinking of upgrading. The app works as fine as the original did when I purchased it the first time.

  • Not good for spreadsheets

    by Temple Run Guy

    To edit cells you are taken to a text screen. This means you have to double click on the cell to edit the internal information, the most common type of editing. This alone makes it unfeasible for any serious or even casual use. When you reposition the cursor it always reverts to a capital, an annoying trait for editing or composing

  • Junk

    by Maui Kid

    Not sure where all these great reviews come from ? First. A $9.99 app should not have pop up adds! Second: The app is is visually ( UI) a confusing mess with strange colors. Not very professional looking. I'll take the ten dollar loss, and try something else. That's what reviews are for.

  • Waste of money

    by Bulka_grib

    Lacks most essential features, modified selection and typing behavior makes even simplest tasks unmanageable, document save/load behavior unreliable. Yuk!


    by korablik6

    This software is not user-friendly, especially the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet software makes you double-click in order to input information. Do not waste your money. I would give this product no stars, but Apple forced me to give it one star to give feedback. :(

  • Don't waste your money!!

    by Mary T. Van Dyke

    Day 1 I spent a day writing notes, each time I closed and opened it the document was there. I was at a conference and I took pictures which I inserted into my document. Guess what? Day 2 comes and the document is missing. I wasted an entire day and I can't get those notes back. I wish I could get my money back, because I just can't trust this app. I wasted my money.

  • Was good

    by Longaxe

    Was good, and my preferred office ap. Doesn't seem to work well now. Don't know what happenned. Spreadsheet interface is terrible

  • Useless

    by Ruben Toledo

    Does not work on IPad. When clicking on the app to open it, it crashes, on the few times that it opens I am unable to click on 'Create' or 'Getting started' because once again the app closes. So far a waste of my money.

  • Horrible

    by Spud906

    Unable to cut, paste, or copy text. This app is NOT a word processor‼️

  • Pop up ad!?!

    by All5n

    When I pay $10 for an app I expect to not have pop-up ads in it!

  • Flawed

    by Lees New Toy

    I can no longer email docs! What happened?!

  • Useless

    by James flowers

    This app was ok now it is useless. What a waste

  • What?

    by TDKakm

    I would give this a five star if it had spell-check and ability to use bullets. Never thought to check this out before I downloaded and started to use it. I cant imagine why a program would not have this since its absolutely elementary. Also the need for bullets. It really deserves a "1" with no spell check. It's like pulling into a gas station and they don't sell gas! Cut me a break!

  • smart office 2

    by CPJ91

    not good enough. office suite pro far better

  • Glitch

    by anbmama

    I've had this app for quite awhile for iPad and usually works great. However, a glitch has popped up, while writing I press the spacebar and it, instead of creating a space, it jumps up to the top menu bar. Repeatedly. Shutting the app and the iPad down didn't help. I want to keep using this app for my school work, but this glitch makes it impossible.

  • Great

    by RNjennER

    Great app until the real office app comes out!

    by mario ruben colombo

    Muy bueno

  • Cool

    by Levano22

    It's one of the best apps I've ever installed. This app really helps you with making your iPad into a fully operational laptop.

  • Great app!

    by Imu_oni

    Please include Bangla font!

  • Bad app !

    by Chghcghcdghcg

    Whenever I open this app, it crushes and closes !! I didn't get any benefit from downloading this app, not yet at least.. I'm asking the developer to fix these bug so that I can use this (expensive) app !

  • Just what I needed.

    by HENRIETTA Coffee

    I love it so far.

  • Business App
