Features Review

Cloud is The Word

The features of Word for iOS are quite similar to those of the desktop version. You can create, edit, share or delete documents that allow for rich formatting and embedding external data and metadata. Not only the document contains the text, but its formatting, embedded tables, images and links as well. The formatting preserves if you open the file created in this mobile Word in desktop version or some other text processor supporting .DOCX and .DOC.

The developers provide lots of templates, saving your time, so if you need to write a simple document, a letter, a scientific article, a CV or a catalogue, you’ll just have to select the template and fill it.

Maybe this Microsoft Word for iOS review pictures it as self-sufficient, but it’s tightly based on the cloud service Office365. On iPad Pro 10.5 or larger it’s a must if you need more than just viewing files, due to licensing policy of Microsoft. On smaller devices you’ll have all the features, yet Office365 is still great for remote collaboration, enhanced by mobility. You’ll be notified when someone accesses or edits your shared documents (unless you have turned notifications off), and your colleagues will be aware of changes made by you. Cloud also provides storage and overcomes limitations of iOS. So this version of Word is rather a client for Office365.

Word Is Worth It?

There is one precondition that makes it necessary to download Microsoft Word for iOS: it’s Office365. If you actively use its collaborative features, store documents in its cloud, or just happen to have a subscription, then you’ll make the best out of Word Mobile due to its deep integration. Otherwise, it’s just another document app, though a good one.
