I like using Sheets for my crazy, weird tracking habits but I have to constantly open up Sheets on my laptop or browser to do what I actually like using this application for: Conditional Formatting and Data Validation. It’s astounding that this app has been on here for how long and still hasn’t implemented those two basic features into the iPad version? Still using it because at most I only need to tweak stuff once in a while, but it’s such a pain when I’m on the go and don’t have access to the internet or my laptop/browser.
Unoptimized interface hampers productivity and makes me not want to use google sheets if i know I need to make frequent inputs.
For example, when opening sheets a banner appears that blocks the formula button, preventing you from tapping it. The banner says “[yourname]@gmail signed in” and lasts for 5 seconds, and can’t be removed. It’s unnecessary and it’s message could be indicated in a less obtrusive way.
Compared to android, there seems to be a couple of features missing
1. Being able edit links by holding down on a cell
2. Moving multiples values in cells by highlighting and holding down to move around
Also at times, the page doesn’t update as I type, so I have to exit the sheet and go back to see that what I’ve typed was actually processed
I can’t believe that we are in 2023 and the iPad app functions are so limited. You can call it a file view+. Because you can only view and do basic edits. Non of the shortcuts work. The app as it it’s it’s good but functions are terrible. On top of that they won’t let you use the web version on chrome for iPad. You have to use safari.
I don’t know when it changed but now every time I try to use this it stops letting me enter into cells just wanting me to enter comments instead of text. Only way to fix is to exit and renter the sheet. Sometimes it happens in the middle of typing into a cell. This has made this software unusable.
I would love to love this app. I use sheets for my budget. I edit in one place on my computer or tablet and later go to check on the phone and it loads a days old edit. Even if I pull down to refresh. Like the whole point is for live edits in real time.
Won't let me edit in browser, says you need the app... but the app doesn't work with my iphone. How hard is it to give me access to my own spreadsheets? Apparently too hard for Google's engineers!
Although google sheets is a great resource hardly any of the functions are available for use on an IPad which makes it frustrating to work with on the day to day bases.
Fix it: there is no way to create variables on app
When we select the cell we have no option to change reference name of the cell.
doesnt work right, formulas and functions are incredible difficult to use, essentially useless. thanks google.
