About Microsoft Word

What is Microsoft Word?

The Microsoft Word app is the app version associated with the word processing computer software. It allows users to create word documents as well as share, view and edit others.


This app is available for download from the App Store and the Google Play Store and does feature in-app purchases. The Microsoft Word app is rated for users of all ages.


With the Microsoft Word app, users can create, view, edit and share written documents. It is often used by students who need to write essays and research papers.


It’s also a useful collaboration tool because users can email Office documents to one another to share and edit. The Microsoft Word app isn’t just for business and school; it can be a recreational tool as well.


Users can see PDFs and e-books on the go for easy reading. The app is a wonderful way to keep records of blog posts, resumes and other documents with just the tap of a button.


Microsoft Word is similar to the JotterPad and Writer Plus apps. It is rated E for everyone and is free to download. It includes some in-app purchases that range from $1.00 to $9.99.


The average user rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars, and there have been over 500 million installs of Microsoft Office in the App Store and the Google Play Store.


Sometimes users complain of integration or compatibility issues as well as bug fixes, but the developers update it regularly enough. Microsoft Word and the entire Office Suite has been around for years, and continues to be a tried and true favorite among many people.

Is Microsoft Word safe for my kids?

The app is safe for kids and may actually be useful during their grade school and college years and beyond. Microsoft Word is suitable for all ages and can fit a variety of tasks and assignments. 

Parents should know that kids will need a Microsoft account (or access to one) in order to use the app. The sharing feature may concern some parents, so be sure to remind kids to only accept and share documents with people they know. 

If they accept and view a Word document from a stranger, they may find inappropriate content (but this is rare.) Most files are work or school-related. Another concern could be the in-app purchases, which a child could be tempted to make for extra features and tools.  

Microsoft Word pairs well with other apps like PowerPoint, OneDrive and Excel. The app is like a more in-depth and updated Adobe Acrobat Reader. While there is no age verification or required age to download, it’s rated E for everyone and in general poses no threats.

Parents could even use it to help children with reading and writing skills. It’s a versatile app that fits in both a classroom and an at-home setting. Kids will be fine using Microsoft Word.
