Impression and review of people to iPhone App [Zoho Writer – Document Editor]!

  • Slow
    by afgnc72 on 2021-03-10 at 3:34 PM

    Reaction time to my typing is slow and it erased an entire paragraph. I like the concept, but not the performance.

  • Love Writer, but Not the iPad app
    by LeSage08 on 2020-06-30 at 7:08 AM

    I like Zoho’s products a lot, they’re free and they get the job done just as well as Docs or Word. I love the interface on the desktop app, and the phone app is a great companion, especially when using notes on one and writing on the other. Where the issue lies is with the iPad app, it constantly crashes and gives me a message that it couldn’t save and deletes a portion of my progress. Sometimes I need to write on the iPad for convenience or because I cannot get to my computer, and the issues that the app has makes it easier to write them somewhere else then copy and paste to my existing document.

  • Easy!
    by Poetically speaking! on 2020-05-21 at 7:16 PM

    I love this app. It’s so easy to use. It’s great!

  • Does not work on iPhone —crashes
    by awesomecoffee127668495&37737 on 2020-04-14 at 5:15 PM

    I’ve tried and tried my company uses Zoho across the board and this is one app that will not work even after support calls. And sadly Zoho WorkDrive will not play with other apps.

  • Barely works
    by Alsnwbsodne on 2020-04-07 at 3:11 AM

    Soo glitchy! It’s horrible! Please fix this app! Every time I erase a letter or sentence, or do anything, it takes ages and doesn’t show the change. I have to keep closing and opening the document if I want to see what I’ve done to it. It crashes after 3+ changes. Not usable at all. I’ll probably have to migrate all my notes to google docs because I need to access my notes from my phone.

  • I like the idea but this app is TOO buggy
    by Mad grape seed on 2020-01-13 at 12:45 AM

    It keeps freezing or displaying blank page in the read mode, before I can get anything done. It simply won’t work smoothly, repeatedly giving error messages saying having problem with the latest edit. I use the web version on pc, but this app is disappointing.

    by dimondwolfidontlie on 2020-01-12 at 2:13 AM

    In this app you can write a book super easily!!! There’s it has fonts you can even add pictures!!! If your looking for an easy way to write a book this app if for you.

    by Phillipashelton on 2020-01-08 at 12:41 AM

    I wrote 3 weeks worth of writing because I am an inspiring writer and it all just got deleted!!!! I hate this app and I do not recommend for anything you need to write

  • Updating my 1-star review.
    by James Farrous on 2019-10-20 at 12:47 AM

    UPDATE: Zoho corrected the problem in the most recent release (5.6.1). The app now functions as expected. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I have been using the app daily for years. Overall I like it. But I just installed the newest version (5.6) and it is completely unusable. It crashes constantly. I have an iPhone 7 running iOS 13.1.3.

  • Great free app
    by Obie1000 on 2019-10-13 at 2:50 AM

    This app works great for my iPad mini!

  • Not usable
    by Natefair62 on 2019-10-07 at 2:59 AM

    There is a lot to like about this app. After doing some research it fit my needs best. But it freezes often, every 30 minutes before iOS 13 and more frequently now. You can’t write a period the usual way. For example, that last period came as all of mine do on an iPhone: two taps of the space bar. On this app a period is there until you save the file. Then it’s gone. So I changed my style to actually type a period, but it seems some of these disappear, too! These are issues are PRIOR TO iOS 13. Under 13 it’s even worse. They couldn’t write the app properly for 12. Why should I think they can fix it for 13?

  • Won’t even work for minor edits
    by spacedogs on 2019-09-08 at 10:15 PM

    Viewing documents is the best you can do with this app. Even minor edits—adding a period or a space—can cause it to crash. Or worse, cause it to reload, which will result in your edit occurring in the wrong place in the document, or only some of the characters you typed showing up. I often end up creating more issues than I started with when I try to make edits. Long story short, yes, it works as a document viewer. No, it doesn’t work as a document editor.

  • One of a kind
    by Cheesecake.Alex on 2019-08-23 at 12:21 AM

    Amazing App!!! The developers must be intelligent and hard working to create such an application. I can’t count how many times I chose Zoho Writer over Google Docs. I love the interface and how easy it is to use and share. I would suggest adding more templates though.

  • It Doesn’t Work!
    by 1blkshu on 2019-08-14 at 9:23 PM

    You can’t use templates and there are several other features missing or not working properly. If you download this app to your iPad, you won’t be able to use the regular version anymore. Don’t do it!!!

  • Ooooof
    by Edme on 2019-08-13 at 7:55 AM

    My friend and I use Zoho to share our collaborative stories with each other. The website works well enough, and we have a great time editing with each other live. The app on the other hand offers none of the convenience of the site. Typing lags so far behind what you are writing, you might as well be carving it into a stone tablet. And heaven forbid you want to copy and paste more than one word into it. The thing bogs down to near crashing with as few as 20 words selected to be pasted. We have had more than a few issues where it will randomly place our curser somewhere else in the document while we are using the app, and we will lose random sentence fragments pages away from where we had been working. If they even get written down at all. And don’t you dare even think about any kind of formatting while on the app, it won’t translate to the site version. You won’t get any of the double space periods your phone placed in there either. Don’t forget about the weird random extra spaces between words that you get as well. That’s if it doesn’t just not save huge chunks of text at random. We still use the site, and will keep using the site, but we cannot safely use the app and you cannot either. At least not until an acceptable update makes it useable.

  • doesnt work
    by nicksjammin on 2019-08-02 at 12:16 AM

    i need to create doc that does not skip lines, unable to do so. No option on screen. or menu. Also the size selected for font are not true to source this site will only frustrate

  • Great start but lacks some basic features
    by Venessa711 on 2019-04-21 at 3:35 PM

    I use Zoho for everything and I love it but this app and the other desktop versions of Writer are missing one really important feature. Being able to put the file into a specific folder. I don’t like having to remember to go into Docs and moving it after it is created. Also, since Workdrive is headed to replace Docs it would be nice if we could choose to save to their as well. I have noticed some lag the bigger the file gets but for the most part it gets the job done.

  • Good but needs a feature or two
    by Mike000000000000007 on 2019-02-26 at 11:48 PM

    I actually really like this idea, being able to type up a document and know that it will still be there no matter what happens to the data on my local device. Writer is one of a few good options out there. However, writer lacks some features. Writer lacks the nice spacing on either side of the text, the left and right margins. Many other note taking and word apps nicely highlight the text via those margins. Even Zoho docs does it, so why not this app? They need to give it more of a page feel in my opinion or at least have this as an option. Then there is search. I would like to be able to search within my documents. It is easier to find content this way. Right now it appears to only be able to search file names. Last but not least, it would be nice to be able to multi-select items within this app to send them all to another app or drive. Far too many apps lack this very basic feature and it would be very worth while to add it to writer. Besides these missing features though it is a good alternative to Google docs. Keep up the good work!

  • Buggy
    by Ash&jon on 2019-01-31 at 3:13 AM

    I’m a fan of zoho for the most part. But being a business owner and especially one that writes software ourselves, it seems to me that zoho tries to do way too much and doesn’t pay attention to detail. Slow down. If you’re going to build an app, at least let me get past the first page which shows me how to swipe left or right for more options. I don’t care about options if I can’t use them. Don’t block the interface with tool tips and no way to get it out of the way. God gave you a brain. You’re smart. Use some common sense.

  • Disappointing
    by kvantes on 2018-11-14 at 11:41 AM

    Super disappointing. This app lags horribly while you’re trying to type, and if the document is more than a few pages it crashes and shuts itself down immediately. Tried restarting my phone as well as uninstalling and reinstalling the entire app, with the same results. I use Zoho all the time on the desktop, so it’s a shame that that same usability doesn’t translate to the app.

  • Good idea but doesn’t work yet
    by stephen•ph on 2018-10-04 at 11:10 PM

    I’m on a paid account. The service concept is similar to Google’s Docs but doesn’t work as well. In the app: documents can only be viewed in icon view. C’mon, 1984 is long gone. Where are the lists views? Sort by name, date, type, etc. Search function searches only file names, not file contents. Cannot save files into a new Folder. Cannot delete files. Cannot share files into another Zoho app, eg: Projects Typeface changes randomly after a server error. Cannot tell which changes have been saved and which one not saved since last auto-save. I experience constant “connection interrupted” and “server errors”. Each forces a page reload which dumps all changes since the last auto-save. Very annoying. (Is this me, my China connection, or Zoho’s servers?) Update, October 2018 Zoho Customer service is responsive; they try hard to solve Customer complaints. My “connection interrupted”issues persist. This must be caused by my internet connection; the Service provider is called _Great Wall_ after all.

  • great-ish ?
    by Liz Beth  on 2018-09-14 at 8:45 AM

    i love the online program for the most part but with the app, the font is way too big and wont let me shrink it. and with copying and pasting, there’s no ‘select all’ option !!! it’s super annoying — especially when i have a lot of text i want to transfer. please fix these >:( i dont wanna have to start using a different program because i like it a lot! these are just critical to me

  • Nope
    by Dazgammer1 on 2018-09-02 at 11:23 AM

    Attempted to copy and paste a large document that was a fail as the file was corrupted and the text inconsistently appeared within the document. The interface looks very nice however I then tried to copy and paste fractions of a chapter at a time and this resulted with the ap unexpectedly closing. Soon thereafter this ap was uninstalled. Not recommended unless you have time to waste.

  • Great look, too many problems
    by Christy Luis on 2018-08-05 at 1:19 AM

    Most concerning is that when I use my microphone to input text, sometimes the text disappears. This has happened several times in the course of the last half an hour since I downloaded the app, so I am going to get rid of my account because it’s just not usable for me. Also: less concerning but slightly time-consuming it is the fact that every time I navigate away from the screen, it has to reload my document. And finally, I couldn’t figure out if there was a “select all” option. I saw cut and basic select, but for my work, “select all” is a must-have capability. Maybe I’m just silly couldn’t figure it out, but that played a small role in my decision to stop using this app.

  • Can't get it to work correctly
    by Jijojo241 on 2018-07-27 at 7:57 PM

    I tried it is not user friendly, doesn't give any options to save, delete, start anew etc. Locks up screen of my iPad.

  • Good but laggy and buggy
    by Mrs.Trancy-Phantomhive on 2018-06-07 at 12:49 AM

    I love the way everything is organized, but as I’m typing, the keyboard will bug out and it almost seems too laggy.

  • Disappearing punctuation
    by Eater of Souls on 2018-05-22 at 2:26 PM

    I started using the app. Whenever I go back to my work all the punctuation is gone. I don’t want to continue using it as a result.

  • A Blah do writing app
    by steam_girl on 2018-05-19 at 12:46 AM

    If you only want to write a few things on the app it's ok. But otherwise google docs is way better. It's way too difficult to view docs, you have to use a separate app for sheets and more often then not the app doesn't work. Don't even waste your time downloading the Zoho docs app because that does nothing.

  • Skinny
    by The Blue Cafe on 2018-05-15 at 11:38 PM

    You need to add a way to save a your work! The app crashes all the time. I'm afraid if I log out I'll lose all my work! And it lags

  • Could be better...
    by Mrs. Yelp on 2018-04-28 at 9:56 PM

    The desktop version is amazing, but the app... not so much. It needs smaller fonts, scrolling smoothness, and the ability to sync folders. All of my documents are out of its folders and I have to guess which is which.

  • Font size
    by anne_ilu on 2018-03-21 at 11:33 AM

    If they add in a setting that lets you change the unnecessarily large font size then I’ll give this 5 stars EDIT: I wish it could go even smaller, but now that I’ve found it, it’s a lot easier to write without people being able to see it from miles away!

  • So far Nice Interface
    by OneCornerstone on 2018-03-01 at 9:44 AM

    Update: it no longer is freezing on tutorial. Will share more once I use it extensively.

  • Ok
    by Venny34566: on 2018-02-19 at 4:23 PM

    Always and I mean always crashes Thanks for caring

  • Awesome App with Minor Problems
    by Pas Mon on 2018-01-31 at 9:56 AM

    So there’s another problem that I encountered. Sometimes the app crashes and deletes whatever I had just typed at the time. It’s a little frustrating to deal with. Also, whenever the app shuts down, it undo some of the changes I have made and even messes up some of the words I have typed. For example I typed “The fantasies...” and after the app crashed, and I went back to sync my work, it saved as “Th ntasies...”

    by MC4K (ya boi) on 2017-10-20 at 2:47 AM

    I have to say I found Zoho docs online today and I absolutely LOVE it. It is so useful. It’s like having a full-featured version of Word online. The UI in phenomenal and this app complements that. This app is very similar to the google docs app but is compatible with your zoho docs, which in my opinion has a way better website. Thanks for this amazing service!

  • I would love to love this app.
    by Gustonegro on 2017-09-02 at 2:36 PM

    The app has a clean interface, which is a refreshing trend these days. I would use this app more consistently if it would finally support the iPad's split-screen functionality. It baffles me that there are still apps that do not. I would like to be able to access my notes, or a website during my writing process. Alas, Writer, even with its more current update still does not. Not very practical unless your are using your imagination while you write... #ExtremelyFrustrating

  • I am a huge fan of Zoho
    by OscarAM on 2017-08-22 at 3:17 AM

    Feature rich, readily available within work flow, and clean!

  • Ok
    by CHfnylvdyjxsd on 2017-06-04 at 7:18 PM

    It usually seems fine, but whenever I try opning a document with many pages (right now 29), the app crashes either at or shortly opening the document for some reason

  • What I was looking for
    by Davidbiz on 2017-03-06 at 8:18 PM

    This app is exactly what I've been looking for. It's free, so much smaller than other word processor hogs and it does everything I need! Thanks!

  • Very good app
    by MissingApe on 2017-02-09 at 4:45 PM

    This app was clutch. It allowed me to create and edit existing files that needed some last minute edits. It's super user friendly. I love it.

  • Excellent!!
    by Caroljane Person on 2017-01-27 at 2:46 PM

    This app is exactly what I need to compose writings, commentaries, lessons, etc. on the go and easily convert them to HTML documents for publishing and making a gigantic multi-section notebook.

  • Zoho was a Great app!
    by Rustikallem on 2016-10-29 at 3:47 PM

    Zoho was a Great app? I loved it! But this time when I went in to get a template to start a new document they were gone. Sad! I'd planned on using one. Now I have to start from scratch. Oh, well I guess I can do that too. Just takes longer. I still think Zoho is an excellent app for writing documents! Rusti

  • Needs an update...
    by tinker, tenor, doctor, spy on 2016-01-09 at 10:31 PM

    Needs to take some cues from the interface on Day One, definitely needs a landscape mode, etc.

    by Noblais Oggbourne on 2015-09-17 at 2:58 AM

    Why is it even here?

  • Not as good as the old.
    by Ccjsigel on 2015-05-22 at 4:32 AM

    Liked the old version better. Why does everything have to be "improved"?

  • Crashing
    by “berny" on 2014-10-04 at 9:00 AM

    Writer downloaded when I asked for the email app. First mistake. Now it opens but when asked to perform, it crashes. I have nothing to create documents with.

  • Crashing App
    by pritchaj on 2014-10-01 at 2:29 PM

    I installed the app after updating to iOS 8.0.2, but the app keeps crashing. Will it be further developed for this iPad iOS version?

  • Almost great
    by Katslyn on 2014-09-30 at 1:03 PM

    This is almost one of the best apps. I am preparing to ditch MS (will not use 365) and am reviewing replacements for Mac and ipad. The bar makes editing easy but hitting the delete and return buttons always means a 2 second delay. I have not updated to IOS 8 assuming it is best to wait for app makers to push out their updates. Also, it does not like Spanish. Accent marks will often throw the text into a tizzy

  • Would have rated this app a 5....
    by Njw1116 on 2014-09-24 at 2:13 AM

    Would have rated this app a 5 a few days ago, but since Apple's latest update, my documents won't open. I open the app and it immediately crashes. This is worrisome and aggravating because I can't get into my documents. If this isn't fixed, I'll have to start over by re-typing my documents on a different app and this does not make me a happy camper.

  • Incompatible with Vietnamese input language
    by Ngo Phuoc Thien on 2014-06-10 at 4:49 PM

    I can't type Vietnamese in Zoho Writer. This app is extremely easy to use and powerful.
