Microsoft Word for iOS offers all the features found in the desktop version, but in a sleek, easy-to-navigate package. You will appreciate the ability to open, edit, and share documents across mobile devices.

Pros

AutoSave option: Microsoft Word comes with an optional AutoSave feature that saves your work should you accidentally close out a Word document before saving.

Easy to navigate: Five tabs contain all the tools you need to easily insert shapes, manage your view, and more. With a few taps of your finger, you can email your document as a link or attachment.

Tons of templates: We were impressed by all the professional-looking templates the app offers, from resume and term paper templates, to menus and brochures. Each will certainly save you a lot of time and effort.

Cons

Purchase required: While the Microsoft Excel app is free to download, you have to purchase an Office 365 subscription to actually create new spreadsheets and edit existing ones.

Bottom Line

If you are a frequent Word user, the subscription fee is well worth the price to gain access to this well-designed, iOS version of the popular software.
