Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

  • Write great copy from your tablet, simply by speaking!

    By Debra Cleary
    I am sitting here on my couch, looking out the window on a beautiful summer afternoon. I am speaking these words into my tablet. I’m not even typing! This is the most fun I’ve ever had, ok well, maybe not ‘ever’. I have downloaded the Microsoft Word app, and have signed into my account. Since I have an arm injury it’s been difficult for me to type. Going on like this though, I can really get into storytelling mode. I think I could write really fast like this. Maybe I could even write a book in a short time. To be honest, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to do this. So I took it for test drive, and it worked! You deserve the unlimited freedom of this technology that can set you free too. No more writers block. No more tired fingers. No more arm cramps. The creative juices are flowing so fast I can’t even hold them back! I just want to share this with the world! I want you to have this freedom too! All you’ll need to get started is to download the Microsoft Word app on your tablet and sign in to your Microsoft account.
  • Great, but has a few glaring and stupid issues

    By mrpandaa
    I love most things about this app, like that it formats smartly (most of the time) and coordinates with other Office apps well, and is generally very easy to use. However, I have seen so far two glaringly stupid issues with it that aren’t even hard to fix. One, I can’t draw a straight line. What the heck is the point of a line function if I can’t make a straight line? Please make this feature actually useful. Two, in a recent update some rocket scientist thought it’d be great to make the page scroll itself back up to the top every time you were idle for more than a few seconds. Spoiler alert: I don’t want my POV to be moved off of where I’m working. Duh. Maybe I sound a little harsh, but I feel no remorse telling someone their idea is stupid if it’s really this stupid, and it is. Three seconds of thought could tell someone that these changes were a bad idea, but they happened anyway. Please un-happen them so I can work effectively using what’s otherwise a nearly perfect word processor.
  • The buggy Word we're stuck with

    By Brian Dilg
    The Microsoft Word format is de rigueur since Microsoft managed to put its competitors out of business many years ago. Since then, we're stuck with the file format, although other word processing apps provide less bloated alternatives and the ability to export to .docx in the end. That said, if you choose to use the Word app on iOS, you're going to find that while it's functional, there are basic, obvious bugs that just never seem to get fixed. A maddening one is the magic scrolling demon: like most professional writers with reams of text to input, I use a physical keyboard (on an iPadPro). Try selecting a few words of text using the standard keyboard shortcuts: Cmd-Shift-arrow or Option-Shift-arrow. Voila! Your document magically scrolls to some random position, and you can no longer see the very text you have just selected. Have fun with that. For this one bug alone, not to mention many others that never go away and the glaring inability to format or modify styles within the iOS app, I have turned to alternative applications whenever possible.
  • The most important feature won’t work on the Mac!

    By Totally Confused...
    I’ve been using Microsoft software since 1987. When I switched to Mac, it was only because I could get a subscription to Office 365 and continue to use Word. Imagine my surprise to discover - after hours on the phone with Apple Support and Microsoft Support - the auto-save function will ONLY work if you use One Drive. I didn’t move over to Mac to use Microsoft storage. I want everything in iCloud because it makes sense to have one unified storage location. Yes, I can still hit file/save every ten minutes - but I shouldn’t have to deal with that distraction because I paid to get an app that would work on my computer. The inconvenience of this demand is making me consider moving over to all of the apple products. Pages isn’t that different from Word - in a lot of ways, it’s even better. So, here’s my official request, Microsoft. If you’re going to make people pay for your product, you don’t get to insist how they use it. Open that feature so we can save to the iCloud! If you have to demand that we use a product like One Drive, you’re admitting that it’s just not good enough to attract Mac users on its own merits. Fix this please!
  • Great for collaborating across devices

    By Leo Steveyeo
    I have devices I use at home, at work, and volunteer places where I do not necessarily own all devices. I usually use a USB drive but, remembering where I keep that small USB drive is much burdensome. Many times, I could not locate my USB drive. Using OneDrive and having 5 users access is a convenience, the price, over $100 a year is a little high, thou. I litterally have access to more than 5 devices. Now, when my Phone becomes more than a phone, I really like to see Word to be more easy to edit text using iPhone. I tried editing text on a document using my iPhone, I was able to edit it. However, when I open it on a PC, the line that I typed in using my iPhone has a different format than other text in the same document. Selecting text, and editing tables or that with shapes are not very much easy on iPhone which might have a lot to do with iPhone structure. But, I really want to see improvement on this area which Microsoft could possibly eliminate barriers and add more user friendly features for Word on iPhone.
  • New version not as good as the previous one

    By terrilee_nc
    Verdict: if you want to/need to use Office across your devices, get this. If not, use Pages or Google Docs. They will both allow you to open & edit Word docs & Save docs as Word. Though it’s really handy to have Office products on my phone so I can edit files without having to go to my laptop, I’m not keen on the latest version of Word for iOS. It’s just clunkier to use. It took me quite a bit of poking around just to find the editing control menus. And when I copy & paste text into a new document, it only pastes the text, not any original formatting. I don’t see any paste options such as there are in Word for windows. Example: I have an email with text formatted as a table. Previously, if I copied & pasted into a new doc, it pasted as a table. Now, it just pastes the text with generic font & no formatting except paragraph breaks. I completely lose the table. It seems this app has gotten more bare-bones rather than feature-full. It’s good enough, but if I have an Office subscription, I expect a little more.
  • Not fully functional

    By :-sammy g-:
    You can’t use this app without a subscription to office 365, but then it only gives you the functionality of Pages. You can’t edit paragraph styles or save templates. So you pay for the service and get the abilities of a free app. So might as well just use pages. There is one really frustrating thing from pages that made me try this out though. Outlining. Pages doesn’t recognize what you’ve done before like Microsoft. - at least in the ipad apps. So if you need to go past 1. , A., a. You’re stuck. The ruler and tabs in Pages are also garbage, so if you need to do a quick professional outline, get this for a day. But if Ipad is your sole computer - just use something else. Major corporations like Microsoft and Adobe switching to subscription only payment systems is bad for consumers. They have an industry standard hold on the market and therefore can do whatever they want. Luckily smaller companies are popping up - also Apple’s free products, but the lack of customizability is terrible on the iPad in general. Still feels like monopoly to me.
  • Very good, but there’s a glitch

    By caortlong
    Excellent application. Use it everyday for my reports. But, there’s a nagging glitch which I have tried to solve to no avail. This has to do with the “Print Layout” vs the “Mobile View” settings. I like working using the Print Layout option but many times it does not display the document correctly. Actually, what you see many times is a horrible, chaotic representation of the document (under Print Layout option). I then switch to Mobile View option and I get a good representation to continue working on the document. But when I work using this option and then print the document, what comes out is not exactly what I was viewing when using the Mobile View option. That’s what I like to use the Print Layout option, so I know exactly how the document is going to look. But this Print Layout option is not working; it almost never works. Looks like a pretty bad bug to me.
  • App get worse with time.

    By I hate this version
    UPDATE: Switched to using Pages. I don’t have any of the issues. You chased off a decades-long user. Known bugs don’t get fixed. I’m tired of never being able to see font colors, the weird way it fills in only certain words with only the end letter while I’m typing so I’ll end up with “anotherr” “whichh” “believee” and so on. I’ve had it with it stubbornly and randomly deciding Is In and It need to be capitalized in the middle of the sentence. I want to be able to copy/paste/cut/change the font size/color/highlight if I navigate away from Word or something else takes over the screen for a moment (such as a phone call). Screw this app, screw the developers. It’s gotten steadily worse since the update allowing us to turn off drawing with the Apple Pencil. I’m shopping around for other apps: meanwhile, Pages is miles ahead in terms of doing what I need a word processor to do. I hope the app team is always right on the edge of a sneeze that just won’t come, with a pebble in all of their shoes they can’t get out but can always feel. I’m taking 30 years of loyalty elsewhere.
