Version 3.2.2
Review by MattyM823

Numbers is just as good as Excel - Don’t buy Excel…save your money and give Numbers a chance. It only takes a few minutes to learn all the subtleties but there really isn’t a difference to Excel. All the formulas are the same and once you learn the layout of the program you won’t notice a difference. Apple should really promote their iWork apps more because they really are just as good, if not better than Office! I thought I needed to buy Office with my new mac but after giving their iWork apps a chance, they saved me $100!

Version 3.2
Review by mmanaresi

Worthless compared to the pervious numbers - I am beyond frustrated with this version of numbers for several reasons that continue to disrupt my work and take me twice as long to do something. 1. Working in Print Preview is a MUST!!! - Why would I want to create a document without knowing how it lays on a page? That alone makes this version worthless to me. The first time I tried to work on 70 page data sheet and couldn’t find the print preview so I could veiw the pages, I nearly had a stroke and immediately clamored for my previous version of numbers! 2. That I cannot open a file from icloud or one that was opened in Numbers 3.2 without exporting as a Numbers ’09 file. That is ridiculous, and that doesn’t even work sometimes. I am currently trying to open a file (that I exported back into Numbers ’09 and now nothing opens. 3. I dislike the editing features, I rather have the pop up inspector box then use the current style. This could be because I am so accustomed to the previous menus that I ned to get used to it, but at this point I don’t have any motivation to try to learn it when the are so many disappointing features. Cannot open most .exl files I have downloaded. So thats annoying. I am sure there are more but these are the ones currently frustrating me and which have compelled to my write my first review in the APP store. My basic feelings towards this version are BOOOOOOOOOoooooooo.

Version 4.2
Review by skitzo42

Works well. - Numbers and all Apple office software just works. Takes some getting used to when you’re used to usign the “other” office software, but it’s worth getting used to this. Numbers works well and imports most of my Excel work with out any issues. I will certainly contine using Numbers - it keeps getting better!

Version 4.2
Review by drcastillog

Stocks are frozen in yesterday’s market Totally useless for stock tracking - I loved the new stocks tool introduced in the previous version, however after the update the stocks are frozen in yesterday’s market, no real time updates. Totally useless for stock tracking. I’m wondering how to return to previous version.

Version 4.2
Review by orangehb

Please bring back updating stock quotes! - I loved the new stock quote integration feature of Numbers! I understand where live updating may be too expensive, but the new version only updates prices from the previous day’s close. This is near useless. Perhaps Apple could update quotes with a 15-20 minute delay? Anything more frequent than the previous day’s close would be appreciated. Otherwise, great app. I love working on my spreadsheets across all of my devices.

Version 4.2
Review by DJ Tribal

Please Fix This! - I’ve downloaded several photos and cannot insert them directly into a new document unless I copy and paste them into PHOTOS app. Why can’t I access ALL FILES or DOWNLOAD files from the drop down menu in any of these Apple apps? This makes no sense. Please fix this.

Version 4.2
Review by daverobeson

Don’t upgrade if you use comments! - In their quest to improve comments (the display is much nicer & cleaner) they’ve broken them completely. Hovering over a given cell will show the comment from the cell above it. And even clicking on a cell’s comment marker (little yellow triangle) will open the wrong comment. I use comments extensively, and if this isn’t fixed very soon (days, not weeks) I will have to switch back to Excel, which I hate. I can only guess that no one on the Numbers teams uses comments.
