The Numbers is a neat, clean, and handy app for macOS and iOS. As it is exclusively for Apple devices, users having Windows machine or Android phone, cannot open the file. If you ever get in a situation when you have to send someone an email with specific spreadsheets that you made in Numbers, but the recipient doesn’t have it, you’ll have to convert the Numbers file to an Excel file on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad.
