Getting there... Eventually
10/1/13 Ability to star/unstar documents in Recent tab is GONE, yet files still seem to retain their previous starred status. PLEASE FIX. 9/7/13 Open In function has been restored. Also, it seems odd that the top bar in the app is a bit higher than necessary. 9/6/13 A year later and not really much of an upgrade in terms of features, but some UI changes that may prove welcome in time. At least the app has still been solid for me, and Dropbox connection still works fine. As for INSERT/DELETE spreadsheet rows and columns, the functions are still there, but just a little hidden: you need to tap and hold a row or column selector to access row/column editing options, but good luck if you have a short row or narrow column, in which case you'll probably just end up in row/column resizing mode, unless perhaps if you have tiny fingers. As for the new sheet selector/tabs in the spreadsheet component, it's really nice to have quick access to worksheets, but then the tabs take up so much of minimal screen space (including the extra space under the tabs which seems wasted). A simple menu option or swipe gesture (or both) to show/hide the sheet selector would probably be a good solution. 10/5/12 Another seemingly POINTLESS ANNOYANCE is that the Cloud tab often randomly (?) reverts to the root directory, as if to just p*ss you off. It is also unclear how the app determines which files to sync or how many subdirectory levels to check. It certainly doesn't scan and compare them all—likely to increase efficiency—but a file in another directory or subdirectory may have been opened via the very handy Recent tab and then modified, but then doesn't sync when selecting the Cloud tab, resulting in not-infrequent sync conflicts. 6/24/12 Another feature missing that is present in Excel is conditional formatting. What a welcomed addition to DTG that would be. 3/8/12 Do you know what the best thing about Quickoffice is? It generally makes me appreciate this product a lot more. Make that 3-AND-A-HALF stars... No, I'll even go FOUR. For now... 5/3/11 It's a little ridiculous that an entire folder, subfolders and files can't be synced in a one-step, manual process like every other Dropbox-connected app I have. The auto-sync of every folder on access really degrades usability. DataViz, please see "ReaddleDocs" and "GoodReader" for examples of Dropbox integration done right. 4/28/11 And an update on the issue where spreadsheets modified on the desktop open in DTG scrolled to column BM: .xls files only, not .xlsx. 4/27/11 Dropbox integration works alright for me, but the constant refreshing of content is SO annoying and inefficient. How about a setting for manual/auto refresh? On a side note, not being able to swap the "Store" tab (really just an in-app upgrade screen) with a tab you actually use is pretty asinine. 4/7/11 It's unthinkable that Spreadsheet cannot be used in multitasking... Almost A YEAR LATER. Resume Docs to Go from another app, try to enter data into a cell... CRASH!!! This applies only to "Recent" files. Could be a FIVE-STAR app. 11/9/10 "Bug fix update" fail. Exact same multitasking crash bug as described below. 10/29/10 Just reiterating my disgust with the multi-line formula bar (see below). So much potential, but usability has to come first. Put the "X" to clear back, and make expansion to multi-line content-dependent. Please? Thanks. 9/27/10 The only way to navigate back from the search pane once the keyboard is displayed is to enter text and search, or close and reopen the app. 9/15/10 A number of improvements and bug fixes in this update, including several that happen to resolve previous complaints or requests of mine. This is progress. But now the app flat out crashes every time I open it while running in "multi-tasking" mode, to the spreadsheet previously opened, and then tap the formula bar in order to enter data. CRASH. Now that I have come to rely on this app for seveal things, this is a huge problem. Also, the changes to the spreadsheet formula bar a few updates ago are somewhat detrimental to usability. 1. There is no longer an X in the text box to clear the contents in one step which was very handy. 2. The automatic expansion of the text box to multi-line is annoying and would be better if it expanded only when needed. 3. The expanded text box in landscape makes it impossible to access other cells or navigate the sheet as was possible before. Still no ability to create spreadsheet CELL BORDERS. Maybe if I asked nicely? Who knows? ------------------------- One glaring omission in the spreadsheet app is the ability to work with CELL BORDERS! Also, the rendering of sheets when scrolling beyond a certain amount of content is slow, but within that amount, it is quite smooth. I think QuickOffice does a little better in this respect. Also, the sheet name does not appear anywhere but in the sheet selector. I like how that marginal app, "Spreadsheet", deals with displaying workbook and worksheet names. And this app lacks sheet sorting which QuickOffice provides, but does have sheet thumbnails/previews in the sheet selector, which is extremely handy.

Across the board
Since the new update the sleep mode has been pitiful. When you close the app it take you back to the desktop. If you leave a doc open you stand the risk of losing everything. Please fix this because it is driving me crazy. The old doc would let me leave my doc open and not lose anything. Emanuel

If you email to the app and you try to open the document the app will crash. You then need to remove the app and reinstall. This is most inconvenient.

Frustrating experience
After I began a business from my home in June of 2012, and being an OS X novice, I purchased this app to assist me in managing client docs, presentation, etc.. It worked exactly as advertised for 10 1/2 months. In May 2013, after an update, the app in my MBP stopped synching with the iPad. I’ve taken it to the “Geniuses” at the Apple store, they couldn’t figure out the issue. I’ve reached out repeatedly to the creators, and am yet to receive any feedback, whatsoever. After months of reading horror stories from other users, thinking that I was immune, the “Bug’ caught up with me. Do yourself a favor and avoid this app (for both iOS & OS X)! Use Dropbox or Google Drive (ugh!).

Used to Work
After the last upgrade the app will not sync and I cannot open anything. Trying to go to any selected items (DOC, PDF,etc.) causes app to crash. Hope this gets fixed soon!

No email support?
Where is the email button within the program? Why must you have an Exchange Account for this to work? Why will it not work with my native gmail application that is already in my iPhone? Why can we not print directly from the device? HP offers an app to print pictures wirelessly from iPhone, Dataviz couldn't figure it out? Also, being able to upload files from this docs2go folder from another application like Safari is a neccesity. The way this app is now it is rather worthless, and does not function as a stand alone app at all- all files must be synced to your PC before you can do anything with them. At first I was excited this was only $5, but now I see why. It's not worth a penny more. At least incorporate email for non- Microsoft Exchange users?
