Several flaws
Overall this app works as a basic word processing unit. However there are several inherit flaws. First, you cannot edit an existing word document past it's text and format; any notes, highlights...etc are not in this program. Again, the program is a basic word processor. Second, the formatting is slightly awkward unless you have an external keyboard; you have to exit your keyboard to make something bold, change the font, size...etc, which can get time consuming. Third, and most important, it crashes often. I save often, but it occasionally crashes as I am trying to save, I loose my work. I was in the middle of a final for a graduate course and as I finished my final essay I hit save and it crashed. When I rebooted the app it had not saved my last essay and I was unable to finish it in time. If it was reliable the first two points could be overlooked and I would give it 4 stars. However, mine crashes often (about 1/4 of the times I use it). All that being said, I have yet to find a better substitute. Simply put, there are no good apps to open Microsoft documents and have the flexibility you would with a laptop.

Not a trustworthy app
Lost all my documents today. Not a trustworthy app.

Great app!!
This is a fantastic app, easy to use and reliable interface. Only one thing stops me from giving it a 5 star rating and that is I wish it would have iCloud backup. This would be perfect!! **hint hint** :p

Major disappointment
Only needed something to use with Excel spread sheet. Dodgy program unable to display any formatting or borders. Opens spread sheet but without formatting data runs together and unable to tell where one set of figures starts & the other ends. ** NOT RECOMMENDED **

too buggy for me
This worked once, until iOS 5, and Lion. Now the desktop app can't move between my iPad & iPhone. Once it syncs one device, it is locked it would seem. I have spent days deleting and re-installing the apps, documents, desktops, to get it to sync only with 1 iDevice after which it refuses to select and/or sync with my other one. I now use QuickOffice with no issues. Waste of money until they do some serious repairs.
