How can we improve Excel for Mobile Devices

Excel for iPad version 2.5 vs. 2.6

Hi all,
I apologize is this is not "the place" to make requests like this but the other MSFT forum is oddly quiet on this issue:
On 10/9, version 2.6 of Excel was released. Nowwhere did it indicate that it was for only a specific version of IOS for iPad. On the contrary, it gave highlights for iPad Pro and regular iPad.

The update version is unusable for regular iPad users (not having an iPad Pro, I can't comment on it). The application opens ok, displays the files list ok, but crashes when one is selected to be opened without any error message. Phone Tech support is unable to help pushing instead a 365 subscription.
All that is needed is to either:
- Fix the bug that causes the crash on IOS 10.3.3 (the latest update for iPad) ASAP
- Re release Excel for iPad v2.5 specifying it is for non iPad Pro, and keep v.2.6 specifically for iPad Pro (if that version does work with it)

Thank you for passing this along to the appropriate powers so we can all work again on our favorite spreadsheet app.

    Hi, We recently fixed an issue with iPads. Please check update to the latest version (2.6.1) and let us know if you are still facing issues.
