Ratings and Reviews
I like it.
I am a 3rd year software engineering student who had bought his first macbook less than a year ago and was excited to try all the new software that came along. I decided to try pages and see if it would beat google docs as it was the primary document creation software I used. However I can definitely say that I enjoy pages the most out of word and google docs. There have been many classes where I have to write in APA7 style and pages makes it really easy to indent the sources I find, as other software would, in my opinion, make it frustrating to line everything up correctly. With pages I simply press tab 2-3 times and then that specfic line will get a new indent whilst leaving the liens above and below it alone. It does take some getting used too as the UI/UX is different from the other software I've mentioned. However, pages has been the easiest to use in the long run and as all my other devices are apple products, it is extremelly easy to access my documents and share them around. I will say, however, google docs is still superior when it comes to working with other people, as anyone can use google docs for free. WIth pages you have to have an apple product. Pages will continue to be my go to for document writing as for me it has been the easiest to work with, simple, conice, easy to maintain, easy acces and great editing with my other devices.
SUPERIOR Word Processor, but...
It isn't common that Apple creates a product that is inferior to their competition. But they have sort of become a victim of their own version of how Microsoft spent the whole of the 1990s in and out of court battles because they put too many locks, blocks, and restrictions on their software for others to partake in perhaps either writing enhancements to Microsoft's outstanding software or, for that matter, write software to work with Microsoft's at all. Apple has achieved incredible success since Gilbert Amelio brought Steve Jobs back ("temporarily") in about 1996 and subsequently with Tim Cook - and the Superhuman and underappreciated Jony Ive, who perhaps should have replaced Steve Jobs since the two were of nearly identical mind. But Apple's mistake is that STILL today, some 30 years after the issue was partly responsible for bringing Apple to its knees, they are no more interchangable and seamlessly cooperative with MS Office programs with their own iWork applications. How do I know? I have suffered professionally over and over and over because of it. Apple, PLEASE PLEASE fix this! You're SOOO sophisticated; please make your software compatible in BOTH DIRECTIONS with similar apps from Microsoft and Google!
basic but ok
its main flaw seems to be randomly moving around text and drawings and images in an unpleasant manner as you are editing, requiring tons of rework every time you edit documents. the defults should be less painful. e.g. anchor stuff down by default. what are the proper settings to not have the app move stuff around randomly as you are editing your document? I have no idea. also it needs a "new page" button to start a new page Now, and have the next text you input be anchored at the top of that page, forever. e.g. when u are starting a new section or chapter. you never want edits from the prior chapter to move down the heading and text of the next chapter, but it does. unfortunately, it seems like most if not all page type editors like this have similar flaws about randomly moving our items around in the document as their default setting. why is this? don't the application developers ever try to use this to type a document with images or diagrams in it and see these problems? i add arrows to images and somehow after i edit the document, where are the arrows? they are "somewhere" in the document floating somewhere. why? i have to keep deleting them and re-making them, if i can find them at all. finally ... just give up and forget about the arrows. it is embarassing that document creation is still so broken. it was probably better with earlier word / image processors that didnt try to be so "smart"
