Can’t create new file 1/5
Showed plug-in returned an error. Even remove the app, download it again.
Doesn’t read files anymore 1/5
This new update makes this app useless
Keeps Crashing 11/18/19 1/5
Just updated to iPhone 11Pro; Pages app won’t even open, just crashes.
Files won’t open after update 3/5
My files won’t open after update either on iPhone or app update.
A bit too precarious 2/5
When it works, the ability to work on a doc, hosted in iCloud, on both my MacBook and iPhone, has been wonderful. But in November 2019, two separate updates have broken my ability to open documents on my iPhone. Luckily, the docs still exist and could be accessed through my laptop but, if you only have an iDevice, you could get shut out!
What worked for me was deleting the app, restarting the iPhone, reinstalling Pages.
iPhone 11 Pro Max Won’t Read Files 1/5
I just keep getting “The file ... couldn’t be opened.” It’s made it impossible to use the app on my phone. Please fix because I do like the app.
Problem latest update 3/5
Adding to this - works in ipad and macbook pro — no longer works at all on my iPhone— cant open any files!!! Pls fix.
Like program use a lot between devices. For simplicity sharing text. Suddenly after latest update yesterday 11-14-19 i think — cant open page files themselves on phone — says unable to read. Fyi —
Install this on my iPad Air 3 and go to create a Blank document. Sorry couldn’t open blank document right now. Really?!
An iPad restart fixed the above. .
Pages on my iPhone won’t open any of my documents. I can open them on my iPad.
Notifications never go away 1/5
I can never get ride of notifications even when I’ve checked everything and nothing is new. This is by far the most frustrating business app yet. Why does it have to be a separate app from Facebook.
Files Not Opening 2/5
I haven’t been able to open any files on the iOS version of Pages for the past two days or so. Whenever I attempt to open a file or create a new one, it tells me it couldn’t be read because Pages couldn’t read the file. However, the files work perfectly fine on my MacBook for some reason, but I tend to work on them more through my phone than my laptop. Please fix!!
Can’t open any documents 1/5
Can’t open any documents old or new. It’s telling me to use a previous version.
I love the whole iWork suite. It’s so perfect and easy to use. And it’s seamless with all of my Apple devices. I will never go back to Microsoft Office.
I love pages and I use it all the time on my mac and my ipad. A couple months ago I found a major bug in pages on IOS that made it very difficult to use. Now that this bug is fixed I am raising my rating from 2 stars to 5 stars.
Can’t open documents anymore 2/5
By Serious knock out
I haven’t been able to open a document on my iPhone 8 for weeks! As soon as I updated to ios13 pages quit recognizing my files. I can still open them on my iPad just fine so don’t understand why it can’t work on my phone. It is quite annoying when I want to quickly add something to a document but can’t since it won’t open. I just have to hope I won’t forget by the time I get to my computer.
New update 470 meg??!! Come on! 3/5
By Elhum O.
Too tome-consuming to catch up with long updates!!!
I dunno 2/5
Idk this might be my phone this might be my app but it has a little cloud beside it like it needs to be updated. And every time I try to push it it comes up with “u need a password” so I type in my password and it dosnt work. Then I notice that it say password to MY MOMS email. Not my’n. Which makes no sence. It also said something about needing to pay for this app visit App Store. Which doesn’t do anything. Now I lost EVERYTHING in pages cause I can’t get into it. My new phone downloaded all the docs I had from before I deleted this app. Now I’m not happy.
Dont know 1/5
Dont know what its used for but when i hit the update, its not updating
Can’t open document 1/5
I can’t open the document that I need to edit
Pages and Numbers don’t work anymore! 1/5
Since updating my iPhone 7+ to 13.2.2, neither Pages nor Numbers will open any documents. They continue to work just fine on my iPad 2 which has iPadOS 13.2.2 on it. Please fix this!
No way! 2/5
By LC Myfld
Way too vulnerable.. just give the spybots ALL yer stuff..! They have ACCESS TO "The Cloud" .. they created it... (DUGH)
Can’t open anything 2/5
App simply stopped working.
I love this app but 4/5
So I love this app but something bad happened so I was writing a story and meanwhile on my screen it said “won’t save” and the very next day I logged on most of what I wrote was gone. So I have to give this app a 4 star rate. Pages please fix this
Your app 1/5
By detective clues
Why is app not working on your device?
Do you intent to correct it? Or is this just like windows ?
Very disappointing to see Apple apps not working on Apple products
Terrible app 1/5
Cannot open any of my previous documents with the latest update. Piece of garbage.
Won’t load nor create documents 1/5
Won’t load my documents nor create a new file. This is after updating to iPadOS with my 2018 model. Every update feels like Its worsening the products performance.
there’s simple, and then there’s this 2/5
what’s the point of dark mode if the pages themselves are still blindingly white? i get that minimalism is in, but please at least add a feature to change to color of the page. i use pages a lot and it gets the job done, but for such an “essential” app, it really should be less primitive.
Not Accessible for Blind Users 1/5
By Jellyfish 75
For those of us with blindness or vision problems, and who require Voice Over to access the iPad and all apps, Pages has become unusable. All attempts to contact Apple to resolve this issue have gone unnoticed, with one exception - Support contacted me and told me to turn off Voice Over to fix my problem. Seriously?
So, with Voice Over, the Arrow keys don't function. Both left & right arrows move the cursor left. Can't navigate. Files and functions also do not read correctly, and gestures that used to perform menus no longer work. My iPad is fully updated to latest IOS and latest Pages, but no dice.
Accessibility matters. The app used to work with Voice Over. Fix this!
Can’t Export to a Word Document 4/5
This must be a change to the most recent version of Pages. It goes through the process of exporting, but won’t send. Hopefully this can be remedied in a simple update.
I NEED HELP 2/5
By Meg Al Abdala
I’m doing a super important work and pages does no want to add more pages. Don’t use this app on iPad or ever
I typed a book. It took me about a week to type. Then, I went to “publish to Apple Books” and I signed in. Said it was wrong. Tried multiple times—didn’t work. This app is stupid.
Page zooms 3/5
By The Banned Hand
I want to use this app but I don’t like the window and zoom settings. I would prefer it to be more like google docs with respect to the display while typing. Google Docs sets a page that allows for all text in a paragraph to be viewable and large enough to be readable while writing while Pages just zooms you in to a spot on an 81/2 by 11 page so you have to scroll around to read what you have written. It just makes writing on it frustrating. Maybe I’m missing a setting or something. I know you can adjust the document size but that’s sort of a bother too. Other than I would prefer pages to Docs and Word too probably.
It randomly deletes important documents. 1/5
It deleted, of all things, my page that had all my hard-to-remember passwords written down. Avoid this like the Plague.
So much potential, but no 3/5
Not sure how Facebook notifications work perfectly fine, and this app struggles so much! It has the framework to be amazing! Just so glitchy with notifications, makes it unreliable for business. Surely it will be better soon!?
Great app. 5/5
I love the Pages app for my work. Very much appreciate these iWork apps. I had posted about a bug I was having an issue with, and support got back very quickly with advice which resolved the issue, so I am happy.
Not working 1/5
It’s not letting me download it says I have to purchase it but it’s not giving me option button to start download
The background color option has been removed 3/5
Without the ability to change the background of the document, everything is a white-wash mess. There is no ability to create custom brochures, etc. without this feature which it once had in the past.
Issues with keyboard 3/5
Works well except when using Bluetooth keyboard. Right arrow key moves left. All other arrow keys are correct, and holding cntl + right arrow works, and online forums says it’s a know issue with pages on iOS 13.
Can’t open documents in Linux 1/5
Apparently, Apple has blocked access to Pages, Notes, and Sheets so you cannot use them with Chrome on Linux. I must use Linux because it provides access to settings that can be used to disable Trojans. Apparently, Apple doesn’t want anyone to use a PC that stop Trojans while using their products. Seriously. Why? The only reason anyone would do that is to encourage another company to produce a competing product without that limitation.
FIXED! Now able to open files!! 5/5
By App sad
Problem solved by turning off my phone and restarting. Thankfully able to create new documents and open existing files again.
Update has whole lot of bugs. 1/5
New update wont allow for efficient keyboard usage. My right curser goes left. Please fix this Apple Pages is one of the few reasons I’m an IOS user. Very disappointed a company of your magnitude could miss something like this and not correct it immideatley.
Best Word Processor for iOS 5/5
By The real BigJim
Microsoft Word is second rate and Google Docs is a joke. Most of the functionality in Pages for Mac is available in Pages for iOS. Pages is a clear example of how to write an application for iOS.
Can’t open documents??? 1/5
There must be a bug in this version—all documents, even new, blank documents cannot be opened on my iPhone SE. This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed.
This has been a great app for me, but I used the 1 star to draw attention to this issue (and what good is an app that doesn’t even work?)
Can not open any files 5/5
A simple reboot fixed the problem. All works perfectly. Been using pages for years, look forward to using all the new features.
All my page files in the cloud can not be opened since the last update.
Pages is a really cool app and all, but I am getting super frustrated with recurring problems in the app. For example, I have a page of photos. Just photos with 3 or 4 lines of text. But over time, the photos will move around, scrunch together, without me even touching them. When I try to move them back to their original places, they'll just snap right back to being clumped in the center. And sometimes a line of text will appear right in the middle of the page. I am unable to move it back without deleting ALL the photos, no matter where they are.
One time I added a drawing onto a page of text. The drawing will also move around for no reason at all. I did not alter the text, edit the drawing or do anything. It is SO annoying. Pages will also freeze at very annoying times (mostly when I press "Documents") and will only work if I restart the iPad 2-3 times.
Pages is so much better than MS Word!
This is supposed to be a word processor! 1/5
I’m trying to finish a book project, writing a dozen chapters. I don’t want to create dazzling documents with lots of pictures, or share my work with a dozen family members. Today, when I tried to correct some spelling errors, Pages decided I had to collaborate — WITH MYSELF, on a second copy of my text. Why? This app is now like those wristwatches that had sixty functions — why? Utterly useless.
Guys, try to wrap your heads around the idea that more effin’ functions is not an improvement. KEEP IT SIMPLE, PLEASE.
BUG!! ANNOYING BUG! MUST FIX IT NOW!!! 2/5
If I press the left arrow key to change the location of the cursor, it is normal. But, when I press the right arrow key, the cursor still moves left!!! However, this does not happen when you are editing a comment.
Awesome. Really cool. However, two things I might want you to fix. One, why can’t you turn the shapes so that they are at an angle? Seems like that should really play a part in here. Two, why does the stupid typing icon come up every time I’m done adding a picture? I DON’T GET IT!!! Please respond and HELP OUT! THANKS!
