Love this app but I have a couple issues with it. First of all, me and my friend like writing stories on stuff, talking about our feelings so it doesn’t disturb anyone in the group chat (they’re not allowed to talk outside of one.)
And it’s really cool and all, but I NEED NOTIFICATIONS. PLEASE. I want notifications for like when the documents have been updated by other people.
Secondly, the app is too glitchy. When me and my friend go to type, it gets glitchy and it’s only me and them. Just two people editing one document.
Please fix that. I need updates people updates.
This is much more efficient than notes, and since I can’t talk outside of a group chat with my friend, texting at 7:00am gets on their mother’s nerves so this was a great download. All I ask is that you please fix those things.
And one more thing.
PLEASE MAKE IT EASIER TO SHARE A DOCUMENT! I never figured it out and I sat there for an unruly amount of time trying to. Eventually my friend figured it out but they couldn’t remember exactly how they did it.
So please fix everything on this list:
•glitch when typing with someone
•notifications for updated documents
•easier to share documents
Thank you! Please please please update this. I do look forward to using this app in the future.
I love google docs, I've been using it for years to write stories and I've gone back to using anything else. You can comment on stuff and help edit other people's documents and it makes it so easy to collaborate. I love how it saves everything automatically, because otherwise this air-head would have lost a lot of writing.
My only issue is that you cant create folders in google docs, it'd be great to organize different documents into folders so I can find them easier (I know I can just use Drive but I'd rather not have to dig through that cluttered jungle)
That's not really a huge problem though, I love docs, and it's improving all the time!
This app is not the same as the Google Docs you can access on a desktop. The mobile app has very little functionality. It’s a heavily bastardized version of Google Docs where only the very simplest of formatting is possible. It’s almost laughable. And Google does not allow mobile devices to use Docs in a web browser, forcing the use of this slapped together app. This app does nothing more than the iPhone Notes default app. So if you’re one of the millions of people whose only device is a mobile device, then that’s just too bad I guess.
I understand that it’s free, but I have no idea why the iPad version of this app is so bad. It’s so limited as far as functionality and formatting options. I bought a resume template that was specifically designed for Google Docs. When I opened it on my iPad, the formatting was completely different. When I tried it on my PC in Google Docs, it opened perfectly. Dealing with Google anything on iPad is a nightmare, I guess because they want me to use Apple apps, but their ratings are way worse.
I have the google doc app on my phone for easy access to documents I need to see on the go. It’s great! Except, when someone sends me a link, it asks if I want to see it the app. I’m given the choice “no thanks” or “get the app”. I already have the app. “Get the app” takes me to the AppStore, instead of taking me to the doc in the app. A different method of rerouting to be able to open a doc directly in the app would be super dope, and a lot more convenient for lot of people.
I have used docs for years and make all my files in docs, but I have spent already half a day trying to get documents to upload into an application.
This is the second time I’ve had this struggle with docs on my ipad pro.
There is no download option, nor an option to switch to desktop version.
I called Apple and she tried and tried to find someway as well and then talked to supervisors who said it was an issue with the app.
I hope I can receive assistance.
To write a simple document with a table and some images included, I’ve had to jump through hoops and will now be getting off my iPad to attempt this on my desktop. Google Docs is clunky and cumbersome. There are far better experiences to be had on any platform with Microsoft Word - something I thought I’d never say - or the highly underrated Apple Pages. Do yourself a favor and not continue with mediocrity by using Google Docs.
This app has the basic functions of google docs, but could never stand independently. It is astonishing to me things such as a tab or indentation button are nowhere to be found. Just one example of many, you’d think such a resource abundant company attempting to serve an industry standard could spare enough for a week of programming to at least add basic/essential features.
The current iPad app makes no attempt to accommodate an external keyboard and touchpad. The mouse cursor is used as a more inconvenient version of a finger poke, because you can’t even select text with the touchpad other than dragging the touch interface text select bars. This is a shame because the app otherwise fulfills most of the needs of simple word processing.
I like writing stories and sometimes I don’t have my laptop with me which isn’t a problem because I have docs on my phone, but oh no I can’t indent paragraphs or at least the ui isn’t intuitive enough to tell me how. It’s annoying to not have things formatted the way I usually have it and I have to go back and reformat everything, other than that it’s a good app
