  • 5 stars or nothing

    I could nitpick this app and say this or that that I don't like, but simply put this app exceeds my expectation for what I wanted out of it. Does so much and very easily and for free! You get a whole bunch that you didn't pay for, what's not to like?
  • Good Idea but terrible on the iPad

    By Radical704
    I am in school and I use Google Docs all of the time in class. It works well when multiple people are working on the same document, but it is so glitchy on the iPad. Sometimes when I type, my iPad freezes for a second and does not pick up what I am typing, so I constantly have to go back and redo my sentences. This can be a huge pain when I have write and essay. There are also many bugs in the system like not italicizing when I want it to or adding an extra space when I don’t want one. Google, fix the bugs please.
  • Love it

    By NanaPaula
    I enjoy having this app. I can edit my documents, change fonts, etc. I can do a page set up, so I know how it will print. I like that I can use on OS and IOS. It all backs up. It all syncs.
  • Uh oh

    Ever since the 12 Feb 2018 update, my copy of Docs duplicates files uncontrollably. If I try to copy a file (to use as a template, for example) I will end up with dozens of duplicates in a matter of only a couple of minutes. Same thing happens if I try to move a file to another folder. I tried removing Docs and Google Drive from my iPad, rebooting it, and reinstalling the apps, but the problem returned. Before that issue appeared, Docs on iOS was already only marginal. Typing response is very sluggish. I’m not the greatest typist there is, but sometimes I can type sentence, remove my hands from the virtual keyboard, and watch while the app catches up. There is no tab key or ruler, so forget about indenting the first line of a paragraph or making hanging indents easily and properly. That’s basic stuff that is missing. Google Docs in its “native” desktop web form is terrific, and my favorite word processor. I know that not all of its abilities can translate to iOS, but in its current state, Docs on iPad is just unusable for me and is a big disappointment. I hope others are not having theses same issues.
  • Love Google docs

    By Keltonisayapperdog
    I absolutely love google docs, especially since I’m in college and it saves your work automatically when your up at 2:00am trying to finish an essay that is due that same day and you fall asleep. There probably is away to do this, but if not I wish there would be away to categorize documents into different folders for different projects or classes and or poor year. I think this would be very helpful for me since one day I would love to show my kids that hard work does pay off. The slide shows are excellent and great for presenting history projects to make them at least semi fun and very easy to use once you learn to switch over from PowerPoint... but the basic outline I personally feel is similar yet differently. The docs were it is like Microsoft Word is very identical just a few extra perks of not having to save, having all of your work in one place, and very easy usage. The only reason for a 4 star was the fact is that if it doesn’t have the filing system “ I would be surprised if it didn’t” again probably haven’t figured it out, but have been using this program since 2015 at-least so I think I would have found it, but things fly over everybody's head sometimes “am I right or am I right?”
  • Runtime error.

    By Nameless Wanderer.-.
    I don’t know how it happened, but after I made a copy of my resume, It kept making copies. I keep deleting them, but more just keep on coming. It has not been that long, but I have close to 50. It is a bit annoying. Please fix.
  • I love it

    I use it for work and more, on different devices!
  • Nice Application

    By V. Marcil
    Works perfectly. Did not know how well this application is until I was looking for a alternative to others that looked good but had some problems with them.
  • I think google docs is great for learning and educational essays for kids and adults.

    By rob3333
    I think google docs is a great way for kids to learn. Though I did leave out one star because I think that staffs and teachers of the world should let children get off the devices and write on paper.
  • Good, not great

    By braddychild
    I love using Docs for everything from letters to meeting notes to flyers. It is simple to use and the templates are helpful. For basic work it does the job. However, I do always have an issue with one thing. I have multiple email addresses for the different organizations that I am involved in and create documents for...multiple times I have created a document under the wrong email and then can not open it or have it in “my drive” under the current one UNLESS I copy and paste it into a new document with the current email. It would be great if, as the owner of said multiple emails, I could drag and drop files into the correct Drive so that I don’t always have to sign out/sign in so many times when I make a simple mistake.
