Not Syncing
Keeps telling me my iPhone must be synced to same network. It is. Seems unusable for me. Can't get my PC docs to go to iPad. Would not recommend.

First issues ever with any iphone app
I purchased Docs to Go after working with QuickOffice for several months and desparately needing one function...the ability to freeze rows/columns so I can scroll around on a large spreadsheet without getting lost. I have begged QuickOffice to add that feature but got nowhere. I had used Docs to Go previously on a Blackberry. The latest version for the iPhone allows freezing rows/columns and I like the interface much better than QuickOffice. However, when scrolling on a spreadsheet, it slowly paints the screen in quadrants. So, if you move to the right, you have to wait to see the columns to the right. If you then scroll down, you again have to wait on the screen to paint. This got to be such a problem I sent an email to Support and went back to QuickOffice. It has been weeks now and still no fix. It's a shame because the app has potential.

Typing is a hassle
Typing with this app is very unnatural to how you would in other native apps. I often can't move the curser in front of a letter on the side of a paragraph. Sometimes replacing words when typing ends to auto correcting two words together , then I have to constantly undo. The only benefit of this app is that it uses Microsoft word and you can sync with your computer over wifi.

Falling behind
I used to use this app daily but this app just isn't keeping up with the Jones's. It can't print and it doesn't work with DropBox. It says it does but I only make it so far before it just stops. I use several other apps with DropBox so it's not me. I've been in contact with support but it's been several weeks and they can't fix it. This Dev makes this same app across several platforms as well as several other products so this app isn't at the top of their fix list. It does maintain the original file type like advertised so that's at least one thing in their favor. UPDATE: still no Dropbox sync after many months broken. Sad, this used to be a 5 star app. I do not recommend this app. Buy one of the apps where the dev still cares.

Cannot get my files into app
This is my first review... First app that prompted such an emotion that required me to let someone know how I feel... Cannot open any documents from Dropbox. States the file is corrupt. This app cannot be used as an alternative to Microsoft office. Very disappointed with the price of the app. Selling features versus working/workable features makes this app feel like a rip-off. Buyers remorse is running rampant.

Oops should have read the reviews
I too used this in the palm days. It isn't much than then. No text to column function. Really, thought that would be pretty basic and necessary. Can't even cut and paste between their own apps. What a waste of money. You should be able to get a refund when you find you don't like an app say within 24 to 48 hours. In my case in 5 minutes I was disappointed. Within 15 I wanted my money back. Guess I'm expecting too much from my "smart" phone.
