Read aloud function is useless. Stops when the phone locks. Functionally, the app is barely usable for anything other than reading on a phone, and no actual read aloud function makes it so close to not usable at all. ETA: Docs shoot to the top randomly (probably refreshin). No way to mark where you are, so if you leave the app and come back, it'll refresh at the top of the doc. Can't get to comments w/o scrolling to find one first. "Pick up where you left off" works inconsistently.

As usual, it feels like Word is an obstacle I must overcome instead of the tool it's designed to be. While it's far more intuitive than previous iterations, the bugs are enough to drive me mad. The autocorrect in this app (nowhere else on my device) is absolutely bonkers, changing normal words into gibberish and never helping, even when it's turned off. Now, there's an issue with the cursor appearing in the incorrect location so it's impossible to tell where your next letter will go when typing.

I used to love this app for all text creation but at some point it has gone completely down hill. The text and the curser jump around the page, inserting pictures or anything under the insert tab is buggy to the point of unusablity and even when you turn off auto save to attempt to peice together something though the bugs it manages to save after all the pages dissappear and the images that had been there go goodness knows where while text boxes appear everywhere. Save yourself the frustration.
