SoSo app 2/5
This app was great while we were traveling, but when I got home, I haven’t found an app that allows me to print from my IPad. My printer is an older model that I can use with my laptop but trying to convert my file to word, it starts to convert and then shuts down and I have to, try all over. I use Dropbox to transfer my converted files but it won’t convert to Word. If it would convert. The rating would be higher if it worked
So glitchy! 1/5
By Lore x
It keeps changing colors and fonts that I don’t want and it’s living things where I never put it👎
It great some of the time 2/5
It’s great app when it works properly. I’m able to have my documents on my phone. I love being able to add and edit papers with out having to drag around my laptop. Too often the app will not allow me open or edit anything. It randomly will decide it I longer want to let you add or edit papers. It’s frustrating!
Won’t even let me create a document 1/5
I’ve used pages for years, starting with my Mac. Today, the app won’t let me create a document. It just gets stuck in thinking. I’ve tried to delete and re-download. Nothing.
Won’t Open 1/5
When I try to open Pages on my 12in iPad, I get the error message, “Something went wrong. Try again.”
I hadn't had any problems with Pages for the majority of the time I've used it. Lately, when I tried to share a document for collaboration (which I was able to do just fine before) I can't add to/make changes on/see any changes made by others. There's a notification that the app needs to update, but according to my iPad, there is no update to download.
Good but problem. 3/5
When doing schoolwork, I import things or PDF’s into notability but it doesn’t work on pages.
The app is broken. Can’t open my documents or e-mail them out of the app. Worse than useless as documents I created are now list to me.
This does not work with Google Drive 1/5
Fix this! How can Apple advertise iOS 11 productivity features when their own apps do not work with said features! I use Google drive (because the 15GB they offer vs Apple’s 5GB for iCloud is the difference between me using the service or not). I’d like to use Pages and have it automatically upload there. Nope!
Dislike this new version 1/5
Have had Pages since I purchased it Over 5 yrs ago. I have lost all of my past projects and this version will not allow you to create like I have done in the past.
Like pages 1/5
I have a problem with the new version. Previously, there was a copy button, that would copy a template or document. But not the latest versions. Can that be returned.
Few glitches but will give 5 stars for a word counter 3/5
By Ghetto bro jk
Pages was glitchy the other day (my friends noticed it as well) but now it works. I love the templates and think its an overall great app! But wheres the word counter
Confirming Nitesong 1968 from Tue 2/5
By eddie mathews 41
See Nitesong TUE review
Just left Genius Bar and they are stumped. Pages freezes then won’t allow you to reopen the document you were working on.
I need them to fix this. Really liked the app until this happened.
Good, and... 4/5
By Tedador the Evil
I have an iPad Pro.
I mainly use pages to write stories. It’s easy to use, straightforward, and does the job well.
That said...Pages does not have the ability to have more than one document open at a time. I’m in desperate need of this feature with my current project.
I’ve already tried split screen with Files and it doesn’t work.
Pages, please, please make this a feature in the future!
Used to LOVE pages 3/5
By I can't sleep
Congrats on the recent update - u succeeded in actually making this app HARDER to use
New Version Is Buggy with Pictures 2/5
Can no longer drag and drop, resize or format pasted pictures. I used this app before to create worksheets so that’s a huge negative.
Is there an option to rollback to the previous version?
Used to be great - now totally unusable 2/5
This has happened again!!! I’m trying to access my documents and it will show me a list of ‘recent documents’ but will not let me access them. It will not allow me to created a new document. It seems to have lost all my files and folders and the page that comes up is not helpful! I am frustrated beyond belief. I can’t wait for 3 days until my files show up again. This is the second times it’s happened in the last 2 months. I guess I’m going to have to go back to Word since it is so much more dependable.
Oh, and one other thing - in Word, there exists the ability to use the Apple Pencil to draw or annotate documents. I haven’t found that functionality in Pages - if it ever existed. Seems strange that Microsoft is ahead of Apple in using one of Apple’s products.
Be Careful With This App 1/5
I am extremely frustrated with Pages. I usually am a Microsoft Office user but at the suggestion of a friend I decided to give Pages a try. I was typing a paper and was making progress towards finishing. This app has no save option and solely relies on auto save to save changes the user has made to the document. To make a long story short, the recurring crashes that keep happening on my IPad due to the recent decline in quality control of Apple software caused Pages to crash. When I opened Pages NONE OF MY WORK HAD BEEN SAVED. I was connected to the internet and nothing was saved; not to my IPad, nothing. So now I have to retype my paper, sources, citations and all. Unbelievable. Tread carefully when using this app because if you are a student like me you probably don’t have unlimited time or brain power to type the same research paper more than once.
Someone please tell me how to remove headers 2/5
I love the app except for the fact that I am unable to remove headers from Pages that I do not wish headers to exist does anyone know how to accomplish this?
Whats happening 1/5
Im starting to hate this app its not working and i need to know why its been months?
Where are my documents?? 1/5
Apparently I allowed Pages to update over this past weekend and on Monday I noticed at least two of my documents are gone. They’re not listed on any device nor on iCloud.com. Where’d they go Apple??
Very disappointed with this app, I have had it for years but since Dec when it was updated it won’t open for me to use. It flashes my documents then screen is all blank. I have tried waiting for upload but it never happens. I don’t understand why it won’t work.
Not working 1/5
Usually I really like this app but right now I am not happy. I can’t even see any of my works, and non of the buttons on browse work. I went to recents to try and get in that way and every time I clicked on a document it would just do a loading arrow for like 20 minutes. Please fix this ASAP!
Great tool BUT PLEASE FIX BUGS 3/5
Please fix this bug that keeps freezing the screen every five times I select text!!! It also takes a while to process certain changes I make to text and will only change if I tap the screen (and sometimes not)
ITS NOT LETTING ME OPEN DOCUMENTS AND I’VE RESTARTED IT LIKE 5 TIMES
Impossible to use 1/5
Worked great the first day. Not so good the second day. The third day it has become impossible to use. It hardly functions. And what little dose work causes the app to freeze. Can’t even go into the settings for pages that allow me to change permissions. Without it freezing. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. iPhone 7s
Waste of time. 1/5
I’m right now trying to open a document in Pages and NOTHING is happening. What’s the point? I now have to email this document to a laptop to fix. Why ? WHY!
Gets worse as “improvements” are made 1/5
I loved this app when I first began using it years ago. Recently, updates have been made and I find it difficult to even find a file I’m looking for. And templates and files have actually disappeared. Many of my files are now backed up by the cloud even though I don’t want them to be. I’m now looking for something else to use when I need to do work on my iPad. Why did you go and ruin a good thing?
Good, but room for improvement 4/5
I have been using Pages for a very long time now, and I can say that it works very well. It’s much simpler than Word and less glitchy.
-You can create an awesome automatic TOC
-Lots of shapes
-You can create automatic page numbering’s in the footer
-Collaboration (though I’ve never tried it)
-The mobile version of Pages doesn’t have as many fonts as the computer version. This isn’t that big of a deal, but it can be frustrating when you need to use a specific font.
-We need a feature to create a bibliography easily. It’s kind of hard to create something in MLA format.
-Is there no way to export a Pages document to another format on Mobile? I haven’t found one yet and need it desperately.
Thank you for reading my review, hope this helps :)
Apple, the “inventor” of GUI decides to finally abandon it in favor of Microsoftian menus...
Why is it every time you add a feature, you remove three?!
Why is Word for iPad v1 better than Pages vxxx?
Cannot open a new document. 2/5
I have used Pages in the past and it has worked great but I recently upgraded my phone to an iPhone 8 Plus and now the pages app just will not work. I cannot open a new document, save an attachment received from an email, or open existing documents. I have deleted the app, reinstalled it, restarted my phone, the whole nine yards and I still can’t get it to work. Please let me know what I can do to get this app to work. My other major problem is when I go to the Apple Support link to help with Pages for iPhone’s and iPod’s, the link will not load. So I’m stuck and don’t know what to do. Help please. Thank you guys.
By bEtH :D 142495
I hate the newest version of pages, it used to be much easier to operate. I liked the function that let you take two pages and mesh together to make a folder. I liked how the old version let you drag a document out of a folder if it was misplaced. Now I have to copy the page and make a new page and paste it in order to move it. This app is good for keeping things organized, but they just downgraded themselves and made things more difficult for users.
Very annoying 1/5
Every time i put it on my files it says that is has deleted it on pages. Also it is hard to save everything I lost an essay to this app. DO NOT USE IT well at least that’s my opinion.
Very, very slow. Any kind of editing either takes way too long or freezes the app. For example, a simple edit like selecting all the text and changing the font or size, causes the program to freeze. Nothing responds and I eventually have to quit Pages.
Also, I hate the changes made to the app. I have been using Pages for years. I see no reason to make some things harder to do.
Intentionally Deletes Your Work By Design! 1/5
By Just the Fax 3737
Ever since iOS 11 I constantly am having to take screenshots in order to save my work as if you get disconnected from the internet even momentarily, the software will say your work is not autosaving properly, and then only give you the option to close — without saving. Sometimes the work lost can be as much as two pages of writing.
This is a disgraceful lack of QA.
I paid for this app and each update has made it progressively worse. 1/5
It’s now at the point where it won’t let me open up any documents. Not even ones I created using the Pages app.
So I am nine and I have to use pages for school but I can’t save anything! I tried Google Docs but I don’t meet the “minimum age requirement “. This is a real struggle and I need this to be fixed. Continue if you DARE!!!!!

Great App for iPad 4/5
By Mr. Superman Ruiz
Positive: Converts Word documents to Page easily (with common fonts). Easy for beginners and so many variables for the experienced.
Negative: it would help to have it be able to export more than one file into PDF for external apps. It converts it into zip file when exporting more than one file.
Almost as good as Mac version 4/5
There are many fixes that we wanted over the years. One major one is text linking. While I have not tried it on the iPad yet, it works great on the Mac.
Because of its friendliness, it’s easy to compose in Pages (either on the iPad or Mac) and convert or export to Word. Word, however, sometimes does a weird number with it!
I have been using it almost daily to compose notes to teachers in whose class I sub. It’s very easy to copy and place into an email message. When I do, it retains the formatting, albeit, with some minor changes. Those are usually the fault with the email client, however.
All Templates are in Latin 2/5
The one thing I hate about this app is all the templates are written in Latin and can't be changed. I don't read Latin so I should be able to change it, not so according to designers. The keyboards are able to type in English but the templates are in Latin.
Great alternative to Microsoft Word 5/5
The iPad version of the app Pages is a great alternative to Microsoft Word, but please add multilevel numbering (e.g. 1.1., 1.2., 1.3., etc)
Will not load. I need documents
Have to give up PAGES 1/5
My go to word processor is NO longer intuitive. Can’t break the connection to DropBox, not that it matters. Your so hung up on fancy changes that you forget it IS a word processor.
I’m sure there are other word processor that are lest complicated .
Apple Pencil in a Microsoft Word but not on Apple’s Pages? 1/5
Ridiculous! You’d think Apple will support all of its products especially with the iPad Pro version and Apple Pencil. I used to tell Microsoft to be up to par with Apple. Now it seems, the opposite is true? Shame!
APA Format 2/5
By Same, you right, and Woooow
I love pages. It is super easy and simple to use. However on the iPad, it does not allow you to have a different header of the first page. This makes it impossible to write a paper in APA format. I a a college student who needs to be able to do this. Please make it possible to use a different header on the first page on the IPad Pro version of pages
It also duplicates damaged files over and over agin if you try and open. Word document
Crap on iPhone 1/5
By Voice box 29
What a pointless piece of junk. I was hoping to do some quick revisions on a paper but it doesn’t do anything on an iPhone. I can’t even open a new blank document to start something from scratch. Did the whole uninstall and reinstall thing, still nothing. It’s a piece of crap and a waste of time. Thank God for Google Docs, it saved my butt. What the heck Apple, get your crap together... not like any of you are actually ever going to read this and fix anything. You’re all to busy making your over priced “Home Pod”
Bad update 2/5
I use pages a lot ... I guess I should that I USED to use it a lot. I can’t open anything since your last update — gee, thanks
Latest update awful! 1/5
By Game nut666
The latest update to this app has made the app totally confusing and extremely hard to figure out how to find my documents. Awful.
I really like the old Version very easy and simple to use Absolutely dislike the new version every time I write a letter and print it out it disappear then I have to find it again to save it ..... what you can’t save anything anymore.............. First I have to find it then I have to figure out how to save it so it will disappear.... everybody don’t know how to just automatically use this app. Why can’t you have two one simple and one not so simple
What’s going on? 1/5
Hey!! Why can’t I load documents off WiFi? This is stupid. Never had this problem before.
Can't Open Document? 4/5
On iOS 10.3.3 / iPhone 6S Plus, if I open a document, close it, and attempt to load it again a moment after, I get an error saying, "Can't Open Document - The owner stopped sharing, or you don't have permission to view it." I have to wait a few minutes before loading the document. And this happens every single time I open a document and then minimize it right after.
I can only rationalize the document saves as a localized [cached] version when in use on the iPhone, and after the document is closed, it uploads itself—replacing the previous version stored on iCloud's server. To avoid any conflicts upon saving, it stops sharing until it's saved on the server hence why it can't be opened. An official explanation and—more importantly—a fix would be better, though.
