  • Highly recommended, but definitely room for improvement


    By Silvercove
    Google Docs is very, very useful as a whole, providing services that allow seamless collaboration and that solve many past horrors of word-processors (like the classic “I didn’t save my doc and now it’s gone foreverrrrr!!”). As great as it is on desktop, I personally found the transfer to mobile devices a little, well, less great. It’s obviously difficult to find an intuitive way to lay out all the functions of Docs on desktop onto a smaller screen, but it’s honestly such a huge hassle navigating comments and suggestions, even when I’m on my iPad. It’s also kind of annoying that I can’t zoom out more on a doc—basically, once the width of the page fills the screen, I can no longer zoom out. This doesn’t sound like a huge deal, but it makes for a lot of tedious scrolling when an already long document has relatively large text. Additionally, there are these small annoying glitches that occasionally occur. For example, when I was editing a doc, I kept trying to delete a space, but it would always delete the space and the letter behind it. I tried over and over again to no avail... sigh.... It also seems to me that Docs can get kind of slow? I’m on a new device, so the hardware should be working fine, but there’s a huge lag when I’m trying to type in the app. Other than these few problems, everything else has been working fine and going smoothly.
  • Love it, but crashes often


    By EpikalStorms
    I’m a writer and google docs is my go-to for writing. I love it, it’s simple and accessible from any device and saves automatically so I don’t lose anything if I accidentally close out. Actually, it’s pretty much perfectly me except for the fact that it starts lagging a bit if my document begins getting too long (I’ve had to start writing the second part of a story in a separate document which can get sort of annoying but also it’s not The Worst), AND that also brings me to the point of y review: this app crashes on me All. The. Time. I’ll be writing, and suddenly my screen will go black and then I’m on my home screen bc. Well, it crashed. No clue why, it’s happened on so many occasions with all different sized of documents, it just happens, and it’s so annoying because sometimes it kills y writing groove, you know? It’s be great if this could possibly be fixed. Happens on both iphone and iPad, probably more often with longer documents (maybe a hundred pages idk) but has also happened with shorter ones. I’ve been writing for maybe four hours and it’s happened to me three times today. Again, it’s definitely not a deal breaker, I love docs and I’ll never go for anything else, but it is super irritating.
  • I use this app a lot


    By TopazSW
    I write original works and fan fics, and this app lets me work on them at any point. Just waking up and I have an idea, just hopping out of the shower, in the line at the store, lunch break, moments of clarity while gardening, you get the point. Since the first time I’ve used this app, to the many years later, I have stopped worrying about forgetting some idea I had before I get to my computer. Even if my phone is offline, I have been able to work on my stories. I think it really is my most used app on my phone. Also, because it auto saves, I HAVE NEVER HAD MY STORIES DISAPPEAR! Unlike other writing programs, that have lost me hours of work because of a blue screen, freezing, or other issues, I have never had the pain of opening a Google Doc and finding all my work gone. I do wish it had a better way to organize your files, as what it does have seems “meh.” But, at least, it has some form of organization. Lastly, I love that I can share the doc in various ways. This has been so helpful for me when I comes to sharing my stories. It lets those who are my beta reader comment and make suggestions, those who I wrote for have full access, and those who I want to let just read all have their own set of restrictions.
  • Okay but needs change..


    By skskskks VSCO
    So I’m just a kid but I have to start off and say this app helps me do my homework but, it’s really hard to work on a phone but with an computer it’s hard to download. But for the phone you can kinda see what your typing but it is so hard!! I would say that it needs to make the lettering bigger on phone but keep it normal if you print it. Also I love updates to thing but this app is always the same, I mean I know it’s a really good app and I’m not saying that you shouldn’t get it, but it just needs some new features. But on a computer when you try to type with your group like in a group project and I’m just saying this because it’s really annoying do you really need to have there full name when there typing because I have friends that have long names and it has to show there full name and I don’t understand why you can’t just use there first name again not hating just telling you what’s going to happen and on top of that when your on a phone and you are trying to give it a title or just your teacher says to write is on the right side it is so hard because the pictures that they made are so small and it’s just really annoying. Okay just saying that you could change it and if your new it will be cool but after like a week or two it’s going to get really annoying. Okay y’all stay safe and byyyyeeee🙃
  • Great, except...


    By ivd37950
    Like most people of Generation Z, the later years of my education (8th grade-present) have greatly benefited from using Google applications such as Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Google Docs’s amazing accessibility, collaboration tools, storage, and auto-save have always been what’s made it better than competing office tools. The app itself is great, and once you get the hand of using it on a hand held device, it makes working from almost anywhere possible. I’ve found myself using these Google applications for more than just essays and presentations now a days, as I begin to need work resumés and finance budgets. So really, Docs (and other Google applications) are great! Except, I’ve encountered an issue when using this Docs app. Now, this could be because of several reasons, however, I’ve found that after prolonged used, when typing, the keyboard begins to lag a bunch, making working on documents so frustrating. At first I thought that the keyboard could be lagging because my iPad might’ve over heated? But, the keyboard has lagged even when the iPad doesn’t feel warm. I’m not sure if internet connection might have something to do with it, but my Wifi is pretty strong, and I rarely encounter issues with it. That’s my only complaint, but other than that I really do love the app.
  • 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?”
  • Google did me wrong at the worst possible moment


    By 日本語の二年生
    You know how we all rely on google for turning in class assignments? Well... IT DID ME WRONG AT THE WORST POSSIBLE MOMENT!!! I take AP World History and had something due today and couldn’t get on it until this weekend but this week it was updated for a big fix that has going on for weeks now that is still going on!!! The app crashes at random times whether it’s long or short periods of time, and this week it’s gotten worse to the point I can’t even see my cursor when I type on my phone anymore and whenever I try to exit out of the page to refresh, I suddenly see two icons of my own account that was recently on the doc and and still see the cursor I recently used on my doc. I was copying and pasting my work from one box onto another but suddenly no matter how many times I double tapped on my screen, I couldn’t paste, forcing me to restart my phone and try again and once I got back on my doc, I realized I never pasted my paragraph back on the doc and now my work is lost until I can get on a computer tomorrow and search my version history and revive my lost work!! Sad to say, google can’t be relied on for everything especially when it’s been having a problem that gone unnoticed and unsolved for over 2 months now.
  • Folders, please!


    By ilovecatvideos
    I am a young writer and I use Google Docs for school and writing. I have many documents that are currently organized by last modified. This means that I have stories that I wrote, stories that my friends are writing that I get to edit, and rubrics, lists, and assignments that my teachers created for distance learning all jumbled together. As you can imagine, there is no rhyme or reason to this mess and I can never find what I need. This is annoying to me. I am trying to get myself together and be more organized, but this is hard when there is no visible means of organization. I want to keep my books separate from my gajillions of distance learning assignments, and that’s not possible. This is a suggestion, not for the app, but for Google Docs in general. My teacher told me about Drive folders, but they were difficult to use and they did not separate my work from my schoolwork, as I had intended. I’m thinking maybe when you go into Docs, instead of seeing all your stuff, you see all your folders. Then you click on a folder and it shows you all the documents inside that folder. This would make using Google Docs so much easier. Please add folders; it would make life SO MUCH EASIER!!!
  • Love Google Docs…but there is SUCH weird stuff sometimes


    By #catsrthebest!!!
    I love Google Docs so much. I use it through iPad and school Chromebook. It’s really helpful and useful. The only thing is that sometimes the spell check just does the weirdest stuff and from my iPad I have to either do what it wants or have blue lines under a lot of stuff, and it’s not because I have bad grammar. There should be some way on the iPad to say that what you wrote is the grammar you want, because it gets annoying to have blue lines everywhere where you don’t want them. Also through iPad you can’t do an indent unless from your other device you already started to do them, and sometimes if you don’t want an indent in a certain spot but do in the rest you can’t take it away. And if you are working with someone else and you both try to fix something it fixes it twice instead of once and it’s annoying. Also one time my WiFi was fine and I went onto a doc and all my fonts were gone and it took like five minutes for it to get back to what I wanted and it isn’t that long but it also wouldn’t let me fix it cuz it didn’t show all my fonts that I had. All this stuff seems small but it gets annoying
  • Meh.


    By SwordInTheLight
    The only reason I use Google Docs over programs like Pages and Word is that my school system uses it and I have unlimited storage for Google Docs in my drive (which by the way is great). But the app is just sooooo s l o w. I don’t know if this is an issue with my iPad (which has plenty of performance issues itself) or with the app, but it’s nearly unusable for me. When I use my bluetooth keyboard with it the text is very laggy (or with the onscreen keyboard for that matter) and text editing is an iOS 12-style nightmare. You can’t drag your finger over text to select it like in iOS 13, you have to tap on the cursor, select “Select,” and then drag over all the text you want to select (which is very slow and laggy). I would really appreciate a couple of features, like viewing the same app in multiple spaces in iPadOS (because I find myself needing to look at multiple docs at once more and more these days) or at least some kind of similar system and a better Explore feature like on desktop. And as several other people have mentioned the text correction is nowhere near perfect. It always marks weird things as grammatically incorrect that are perfectly fine. Google please please please please listen and thanks for reading
