1. use of the app

For accounting on the go. Microsoft Excel for iOS allows users to create comprehensive spreadsheets, format them and use them for detailed analysis from any device. This makes Excel for iOS appealing to those who value flexibility and fullest performance. Accountants can do their cost accounting, balance sheets and more with Excel. Or an income statement for the small business owner who always wants to keep his lists up to date without being tied to one place.

So he always keeps his tables up to date. He doesn't have to carry a desktop PC with him or limit his work to his office. He quickly adds a number, makes a change or improvement via the iOS app, and it's done. Then he adds notes or formulas. And he always has all his balances, calculations and analyses in his pocket and with him. Lugging folders, making printouts. That no longer has to be the case. The user saves time and resources. And at the beginning of a new year, he can keep an eye on and regulate tax estimates as well as his own finances through the tables.

Like the other Office products, Excel requires a subscription to MS Office 365. Without that, Excel can neither be used as a desktop version nor as an iOS version. However, it is particularly practical that the products with a subscription can be used both as an app and as a desktop version. Thus, this subscription is demand-oriented and offers the user the greatest possible flexibility.

2. most important functions

Create tables, edit them and then use them for comprehensive analyses. With the iOS version of Excel, this is possible even for mobile devices. And the touch function of the iPhone helps with this. With numerous formatting options and productivity features, the tool is well equipped for effective, clear and easy work with the iPad or iPhone. In addition to the creation of classic tables with and without formulas, the freehand drawing function can also be accessed. And when working on the same file in a team, it is possible to insert comments. These can eventually be viewed by any user.

For more customized views, it is also possible to set filters, customize sorting and select different chart types. For example, the user selects an existing data range and uses it for a pie chart. The user can then conveniently share the created charts or lists with friends, acquaintances or even work colleagues. Or they can save the data to Dropbox or OneDrive so that other users also have access to the latest file.

The familiar AutoFill function, which is already known from the desktop version, is also particularly practical. This is also available for iOS and makes working with tables even easier. Columns or rows can be filled in automatically.

3. evaluation

The fact that the appreciated functions of Excel are also available in the iOS version simplifies mobile work a lot. Even long data sets can be copied, supplemented, analyzed and shared with others via several ways quickly and easily with formulas and the auto-fill function. The templates are attractive and modern. Although there is only a limited selection and no new templates can be created, they are still sufficient for mobile work. If the user is not satisfied with the existing templates, they can still select, customize and change them if necessary via the desktop version on the PC.

Of course, good products have to be paid for. But with an Office 365 subscription, you not only have Excel for the desktop PC or a mobile device, but also many other programs like Word, PowerPoint and more.

Tutorial installation / de-installation on iOS

This is how easy it is to install and uninstall / delete iOS apps (applies to iPhone and other iOS devices):

The installation of apps is basically possible on iOS via the App Store. The App Store contains both free and paid apps that can be installed on the iPad, iPod or iPhone. The prerequisite for use is an Apple ID, which can also be created free of charge (this ID is also required for free apps).

1. In the AppStore, the user selects the appropriate app using the search or categories. To the right of the app icon there is a "load" button that is pressed.

2. In the next step, the user must log in with the Apple ID. If the ID has already been used for an app, all you have to do is enter the password - alternatively, Touch ID or Face ID can be used for new devices.

3. After entering the password or after authentication, the app is finally loaded and automatically installed. Entering the password is also necessary for free apps.

4. The app is loaded at the next free space on the home screen and can be opened there - alternatively, the "Load" button becomes the "Open app" button so that the app can be opened directly from the AppStore.

Uninstall apps in iOS

Deleting apps and programs on iOS is very easy and can be done directly from the home screen.
1. In the first step, the user looks for the app that needs to be deleted and presses the app icon with one finger for a long time.

2. The mode opens in which the home screen can be edited. An "X" appears at the top left of every app. Clicking on the "X" opens another dialog that asks you to confirm the deletion.

3. "Delete app" is selected here. Some apps save user data (e.g. scores) - therefore iOS can ask the user for some apps whether the app data should also be removed. If the app is reinstalled in the future, stored information can easily be reused.
