Creating and editing spreadsheets with numbers on iOS possible?

iOS and iPadOS

Hi all,
I have a mac but do almost all my work on my iPHone. I would love to start creating and updating spreadsheets. I am thinking that XCEll will work less well than iOS numbers. I find both rather unclear and would love to hear if anyone has had any luck working with spreadsheets on iPHone. I'd like to create data base and add some formulas. Alternatively I'd be happy to work on the mac. I don't have microsoft 365 so would hope to avoid having to subscribe just for spreadhseets.

Thanks for any help and suggestions.

Itt is possible but it is not efficient + time consuming. VoiceOver will keep losing focus, sometimes you may find yourself entering data in a wrong field, so generally if you have patience and you will be very careful then it is doable.

If you're ready to allocate your finger on the needed cell you can edit it easily.

In my experience, appleS Numbers works fine on the iPhone, however, I am not an advanced user and don't know how it works in advanced scenarios.
Google Sheets. It's free and powerful enough for most tasks. Try installing the iOS app if you are looking for a lightway alternative. Also, you can edit the sheets later from windows or mac using a web browser.
