1Doc: Word Processor for Writer App Reviews

12 add


Thanks so much for this! It’s crazy similar to Word, so for first time users, there’s no problem. Even with no comparison, it’s great. All by its handsome self. Super intuitive, simple, and great for people like me that are too cheap, and way too tight on their college budget to actually buy any writing app. Now I shall fulfill my dream of being a maybe-writer… Wannabe writers from all over the world, join me on Word Master! *you can clap now* Anywaaaaay, download this, it’s worth it, and if not, just delete it; IT’S FREE! FREE! EVERYBODY STAND UP FOR FREE STUFF!


small, compact but can do 99% of everything most people want/need to do with a word processor. and it does is well. I ts a plasure to use it

Great app!

I would say it’s probably the best word similar app out there for the price. It does what it does very well!

Thank YOU 1Doc!

This simplified version of MS Word is a joy to use. It reminds me of the older MS Word 5.1a for the Macintosh. 1Doc is fast to startup and its simplified menu choice makes it easy to start writing immediately. I wish the rest of the world used this as their default word processing program.

Really like this programm

Its the quickest client of .doc files!


the only problem is hat for some reason, I can not print any of my documents

You will never use it, after you downloaded it.

As the title said. you will never use it after you download it. It just looks great, but the fact is that it useless for documents. I really can’t accept it. Trust me, you will thank me later.

Disappointed, Crashes.

I found that with many of my documents when I edited them, the app crashed. This happens frequently even after reinstalling the app on various documents.It does not work. very disappointed!

Love It!

I have Pages on my Mac, which I love, but if I’m writing something that I want to share with Mac, and Windows users, this will be the choice I’ll use. I was coordinating a reunion a ways back, attaching documents from my Pages program. Several I sent to couldn’t open those attachments. This should be compatible for any operating system. I did upgrade to Pro. For less than $10, having the capability for printing, and other options, it seemed well worthwhile.

Crashed, crashed, crashed.

I want to download this app. I make my system be 10.11. because it need system of 10.11. If your Mac is not like this. You can’t download it. But after I change my syatem. This app doesn’t work at all. I am so angry now.

Didn’t get it any more

I have to say that I hate to use this app. And Its interface is poor. Because the interface is not obvious distinction, I could not find any buttons. It cant be used very smoothly.

Has no print function

This program would otherwise be a very useful multi-format word processor. The inability to print is simply idiotic.

No Compaints….

I have only been using this app for about a week, i have a mid 2009 Macbook and cannot get pages or any other free word processing app. This app so far is awesome i have not figured out some of the elements as to hoe to operate the headers or footers or if this app in fact supports this elements, but for writing and spelling corrections with this app you cannot go wrong.

Simple and great app

Great and simple to use app making everything that I need.

Nothing but Great

For now for free version, looks great, works great, friendly interface. Wil continue to use 1Doc since its great app to use.

Provides basically everything expected and more:)

I was disappointed to find out i couldn’t download Microsoft Word straight from the AppStore on my MacBook Air, and if i can it needs to be paid for. Works similarly, & I'm this happy with the app without even paying for the upgrade!:)

Very Frustrating

I’m frustrated with this application. I close the lid for my laptop every night, but leave my documents up. I am a writer and every morning when I go to work on something, the formatting has changed. I end up having to copy and paste my entire manuscript onto a new document. THEN I just opened it to try to send my editor a bit of what I’d edited, and the whole 8 pages is gone, even though it was supposed to be on autosave. This app is an exercise in frustration and I wish I had not upgraded. Not worth it.

Good low cost application

I like the progam but I can not find the underlineing portion. I do NOT like the dark Green page when you open Docs. It is annoying and Can not see your typing. Had to dink around to find the white doc page. Other than thaqt a very good program.

Best Word Processor for MAC

I had been using Text Editor for most word processing and found it most un desirable so I started using Google Drive to do most of my editing. I am a lawyer and am Constantine drafting letters, opinions, articles, etc. I used the trial version of 1DOC. And immediately updated to Pro. One of its best features is the running word content and different real time formatting ability and conversion availability. My main problem is that the dictionary doesn’t function along with other accessories despite having a pro account. Does anyone else have this problem? Otherwise I love this program.


you can’t do ANYTHING once youve finished what you’ve done unless you upgrade for $15. I of course didnt realize this until i had spent hours on a project that i can’t print, or export unless i pay the $15 dollars… what a disappointing app!!!!

love it!!

i love this app! i am a published author and i used this app when i was working on my first book. really recommend!!! please download and love!! for me...

Ok, but why can’t we just have a universal Word app at this point?

Lost all my heading styles for the book I’m writing. And really used the document map in MS Word to allow me to get an overview of my chapters and parts, which this doesn’t have. It’s an adequate document processor. But it’s not an MS Word. Unfortunate that something so universally used can’t just be accessed by anyone at this point. A little frustrated.


I have had a MAC computer since 2007 and for some reason my Ipages stopped working. I needed to type a letter and downloaded this app. It is so easy to use I can’t believe it was free.


Been a MS windows user all my life so the switch was not without angst. Proud to say your app waseasy as could be! Love the way it looks. Now if I could just figure out how to save as PDF :)

1 Doc Review

This document app reminds me so much of Microsoft Word just like the “pro” version of it does. The only difference between these two is they don’t cost a bundle the way Microsoft Word does! I ABSOLUTELY love the way the two versions work hand-in-hand with eache other in the way what is done on one version is automatically picked up and transfered to the other version!!! That alone would have me give this version and the “pro” version a five-star rating. Add all the other perks that come with these apps like the word and character counter to name one that I’m really happy about and I would give both this app and the “pro” version a rating MUCH higher than five-stars!!! Thank you EVER SO MUCH for these two apps!!! As a person who writes a lot I GREATLY appreciate them!!!


Thaniks for this delightful and simple to use doc. Easy for me to use! THANKS

I like it, does what I need done

I have just bought a new to me iMac without a word processing program. I don’t write letters often and thus didn’t want to spend a ton on Word. 1Doc does exactly what I need. I appreciate it and would be willing to pay a nominal amount to use it.

Fantastic Alternative to MS Word

As an author, I depended on MS Word for all my word processing needs. Then my Windows computer crashed, and threw my world into a tailspin. I made the switch to Mac, which was one of the best decisions of my life. The only problem was, with all the new changes in my work life, I needed to get back to work. I considered buying MS Office again, but I’d already paid for the program once. Why should I have to buy it twice? Sounds stubborn, I know, but I’m only being honest. Anyway, I tried several word processing apps in the app store. None were ideal (that’s an understatement). Then I found 1Doc. You know what? So far, I like it even better than MS Word. I’m amazed by its simple, user-friendly style. MS Word has a habit of crashing. Anyone who’s used the program knows this. For the last two days I’ve logged in at least 20 hours on 1Doc without one hiccup. Not one! Try that with MS Word and you’ll undoubtedly see “Oh, snap!” or “Program stopped working. Wait or quit?” several times. Nothing halts the flow of creativity faster than seeing those annoying messages. Last night I upgraded to 1Doc Pro, so I haven’t had a chance to use the added features yet. The free version works fantastic, though. What a pleasurable experience this has been so far. If you’re looking for an alternative to MS Word, you’ve just found it. I may never go back to Word. If I do, it’ll only be because I need track changes and the ability to see comments while working with editors. Developers, can you add those features to 1Doc? Writers use them with every book we write. Highly recommend!

i like it

it is easy to use and very helpful

I like it

It is my firstime to use it.It seem like helpful.

Free version has no printing

The free version of this has NO printing capability. I could deal with no templates or extra bells and whistles with the free version, but paying $15 dollars just to print a basic page makes this app absolute garbage.

Works Great!

I am a program manager and use a MacBook out of the office and everyone at the office uses windows based. The document creator wasn’t able to make documents that could be read by my coworkers but this word app works wonderfully. Close to using actual Microsoft Word.


I am using Macbook tried to download app to write my resume ,i download two apps but none of them working ,i come by this app so tried it work very good

Cannot display format correctly

Yes it does open doc files, yet all the format are missing. There is only raw text remaining, like open it with TextEdit. What’s worse is that even images in docs are gone. You can never rely on this app for editing or even normally reading a word file. So what’s the point to download this app?

Hangs when saving to DOC with pictures

I had high hopes for this app, but have trouble in saving documents that have images imbedded in this.



Love it

I switched from an HP to a Mac about a year ago. I prefer the HP, mainly because of Word. I downloaded Word on the Mac and now it’s a bit better. (I still prefer the HP, but I’ll get used to this.)

Great App!!!!

This app is just plain amazing and so far no troubles. I am currently writing a story called “Deanna and the Crown of Lekmet” and this is helping me so much.

Over charged on Pro-Version

Downloaded and upgrade to Pro and it charged me $43.53 instead of $14.99 - I want my money back!

A bagel girl thumbs up! :)

I really like this app! Thank you!


This is a good way for me to have docs on my Mac, since I don’t have ready access to MS Word. I like it so far.

LOVE THIS APP just wish i had all the features for free

this app is so convenient and so much like word proccessor without the price. I just wish i had access to all the features without having to pay.

Word processor

The app is okay but I was not able to figure out how to format page to landscape. :(

Simple and easy to use.

If your just looking for a word processor to type and make papers with then, this is the app for you. Nothing fancy; just simple and easy to use.

Works Fine Love It

I have had no problem what so ever with this app. My other wp program died and I didn’t know why so I tried this and it works great. My other program was an off brand and used .obt instead of a more well known file designation and this program opened all my files without problem. It’s great and works well


Just what I was Looking for and I expect to enjoy it! Pretty easy to use ,nice format dont really understand the slam against the app??

Love it!

I love this app! I downloaded it on my Mac after having some issues sending professors my assignments and then having them come back to me and telling me they couldn’t open the documents. I’m much more comfortable with Word (which this sort of resembles) but I can’t stand Windows computers. This app has really helped me bridge the gap of computer errors and misunderstandings between my professors and me!

User Friendly!

I had no troble using this app and transferring my work into it! I love it and will never go back to confusing and expensive Ulysses!!! I had to buy a book just to semi understand how to use that app. This app was ready to go from the minute I opened it! It saved me in a real pinch!


Well it’s not that bad espically if you have a MAcbook Air

Works Great!

I get a werid feeling the negative 1 star reviews are fake. This app works as intended. Keep up the good work!


Does the job for me. Thank you.

I just want say OMG.

Maybe I think the designer should give me a reply. The designer should tell me why you don't come true in the app store, which you said, and tell me why you lied to us, it doen't work at all, and tell me why your app is ranting up, but I think it must be false. And I suspect a lot of things, much to I can not say it all. But if you want ask my feeling, oh, that's simple, It's so so so bad. Only the worst, nothing else.

This is absolutely terrible.

I have to say that this one is not working as it said. It can't be used very smoothly. This app is always crashed. It always flashes back, and I tried to change it, but there is no any effect. I just get it to do my works. But it doesn't do any jobs at all. Many keys from the menu don't work, I'm wondering why apple is allowing this trash app to be a part of the app store. I just say one word to it. NO!!! I will never use it.

Good App

We love your app thanks for made it.

1 Doc

If you are used to using Word, this app does a great job for the money! It is simple and does not glitch out.

Review of the this app

This app. is great for me it is just what I need for doing my work - thank you

I can't use it.

What? This one can be used as a word app? I doubt it, as an user, I must tell the truth for you. After I download this app, I have never get any benefit from it. More of a situation is a waste of time for finding ways to solve the mistakes by this app. Like restoring the file, solving the garbled. This is really a very boring thing. In order to use the APP, even destroyed my original file. And many are not preserved in my Mac. I need developers to give me an explanation, In the use of the process, there will always be a lot of problems. I think this APP simply can not meet the conditions as Microsoft Word. I should have read more of the negative comments before I download this. Regret now!


Great app, easy to use.

Word Doc 1

Works well for what I have to do. No issues and not pricey.

Just downloaded the app. So far it is great!!!

Haven’t had that much time to play with it, but so far, all I did with it worked great. Even works great with Hebrew, much better than microsoft word that acts funny with Hebrew. Also can open attachments in .docx with no problems…

A Great Alternative to MS Word

I have MS Word on my iMac. It takes forever to open and crashes often. I downloaded iDoc and find it even better than Word. It opens quickly and does not crash. You must buy the app if you want to print, but the price is worth it. Very happy user.

great app

this is just what i was looking for. simple, easy to figure out, and right for basic uses…..thumbsup on this one……...
