Love this app!!! 5/5
I am a amateur interior designer and I love the icons I can use to get an idea of what I can do with the room. Also, making story books to keep the little ones entertained with all the choice of icons is really amazing!! Thank you Apple!!
Using it every day, but 3/5
I use it about every day for my work, great tool. However at times it takes forever to open the document. It tells me its ”Downloading”. At times it just hanging in that mode for hours or simply keeps giving me the ”Downloading Error” message.
Please fix it.
So awesome! 5/5

This app is helping me write a book! I love it already and we just got it!

Love it but 3/5
Love writing with it
I discovered the editing and margin side notes and did that as a sort of proofreading, but now whenever I try and read the document again it will crash just as I go over the pages that I wrote in the margins.
Very upsetting for a 100 page document to keep crashing on page 3.
Great for adaptive editing 5/5
I usually use this program on my MacBook or the web version on my Windows desktop, it’s a beautiful and powerful word processor. It’s also somewhat simplistic and easy to learn. I love the idea of working on a computer and then while I’m away, fixing errors on my phone. BRILLIANT!
Why Can I not open a document that was never deleted and it saying it doesn’t exist 3/5
I was having no problems with this app until now I click on a specific file and it won’t open and it’s getting really frustrating because I had a great deal of information in there and I’ve tried everything to retrieve it and I never deleted it and I’m just really frustrated with it...... I’ve searched different blogs and have tried what people said to do and I do not know how to retrieve it so with that being said I am not a fan of it
App frequently crashes. When this happens my highlights and annotations are lost. This has occurred at least once a day if not more. I am not sure what the point is of having the apple pencil and ipad if I lose my notes.
Apple can do better 1/5
Formatting requires too many taps. Menus inside menus inside menus inside menus. So many taps required, I can’t remember where a formatting option is. Toolbar options aren’t customizable. Table formatting is a nightmare. I purchased a 2018 iPad Pro, so I absolutely expect a much better user experience and more options in a document editor.

Problems with latest pages version 2/5
I am very surprised and saddened to report that what I previously heralded as the best support team available (Apple) is failing me big time.
I reported this (pages)problem in early Mar this year. Support team contacted me and asked that I send them system diagnostic files IF my problem reoccurred. Since then I have provided more than 20 SysDiagnos files and have had no contact from team (despite asking for feedback indicating they were at least receiving my emails). NOTHING.......and the program repeatedly continues to freeze resulting in the deletion of program from iPad and reinstallation.
IWork support team.....HELLO!!!
New day ANOTHER FREEZE! Only been using it an hour and 10 min, please fix this app.
This is the third freeze up today. Am reloading now. PLEASE FIX THIS!
Wrote review this morning. App just froze AGAIN! PLEASE FIX
I love this app. I have been a PC / word user my whole professional life . I changed to apple in 2012 when I bought my first iPhone. But kept my word program because I knew it so well. Only last year did convert to pages, and I really like it.
Lately though, probably this last week, I have had problems with the application freezing. Requiring app deletion and reinstallation. Please look into this.
Data disappears after update! 1/5
I need my data back! After upgrading it has new fancy things that I don’t know how to use and don’t really care right now I need my files they are missing do not recommend upgrading.
Just a few problems! 3/5
I LOVE this app. But unfortunately, there has been a recent problem. Yesterday, May 11, I was writing, and suddenly Pages just FREEZES! I read another review, and it said that another person had been having this problem too. I haven’t been able to do anything on Pages since yesterday afternoon, and it’s driving me CRAZY! Please help!
Good app! 😁 (Exact rating: 4.5) 5/5
I have only 1 problem. I wish document names would support the “:” character. Otherwise, it’s great!
Pages Works For Me 4/5
I use Pages constantly as my main word processor. I love the Newsletter templates. I alter them a lot but it gives me the basic lay out and nice color ideas. I find it very user friendly. I’m just doing basic documents and newsletters but Pages works great for me. The only trouble I’ve had is getting my cursor down to the next blank page at times. I figured out if I type a letter I can move that down and access the next page. It’s annoying but the other features: changing style, colors, using text boxes so it’s movable, columns, templates, types of type built in, adding pictures you can move around, wrapping text, etc. tons of features. It’s really excellent. I used to use Pagemaker for years and Word just never cut it for me. I find this little app can do everything I need and more.
Crap now 1/5
I used Pages all the time but since the 11 update all my date is gone. It won’t load a new blank page. I’ve updated to fix bugs then I deleted app and reinstall to try to fix. The same problem so I’ll just use word.
Needs fixing ! 1/5
Fix these bugs! Unacceptable
Love Pages 5/5
By Lisa S. Murray
Pages was perfect when I first started using it for my business to take notes with my Apple Pencil. Recently the writing has started to drag significantly, and then when I try to save a note, it gets stuck and completely erases pages of notes. Perhaps this is acceptable to some, not for me. I thought at first it was a bug that would be quickly fixed- it has not been fixed and is only getting worse.
Needs More Work 2/5
App shuts down and loses all my work.
Great app for creating docs of any kind! 4/5
I use this for note-taking, homework, writing down my thoughts or just having fun😙😙 a very usefull app, would definitely recommend it to anyone!
Just one thing, if I use languages other than English to type, I can’t use special fonts. So please add fonts for other languages!
Won’t open 1/5
I’m not sure what is up, but I can’t open the app anymore.
Note taking 1/5
I use pages to take notes with my apple pencil and the app keeps crashing and erasing EVERYTHING I’ve written. Horrible. Just buy Notability.
It has happened three or four times now... I have a new iPad on which pages is installed. Pages freezes and the only way to resolve it is to delete the app and reinstall it.
Otherwise works for my needs. It would be nice if one could match properties between text types instead of having to use a preset text type.
Don’t know what is happening 1/5
In the beginning it worked very well, lately I don’t know what is happening here. I have documents that I can’t see them. I doesn’t let me access them.
Can’t trust this app. 1/5
By Texas OD
I have lost files that span over a two year period. Cannot be opened because they are “Damaged”. Apple tech asked me to forward some of the files to them. Hello. If they can’t be opened, they can’t be forwarded. They can’t be anything. Sad. Anyone suggest a more reliable word processor. Sad
Free pages used on iPad or iPhone is mediocre at best. It freezes up on occasion making it necessary to shut down the device in order to free it up. There’s got to be something better.
By slow pages
This app is awful. Hate the new update. Looking for a new app for my documents.
By Wild Terky
It is impossible to seamlessly use the Apple Pencil with this app.
1 GB use of storage 3/5
By Slow internet
I’ve used pages for a few years now and I like how it is so easy to use.... especially the fonts
But the storage capacity! Is so bad.....
I would fire the whole team who works on this app. I used to organize my thoughts on it but now with Every single f update it getting worse.
Mobile view is necessary! 2/5
Hope we could have mobile view.
Pages has been terrible throughout this year regarding the keyboard. Normally, it’s my go to word processor but the typing a sentence is a hassle. The keyboard lags constantly making it extremely difficult to type and there’s no way to stop the typing once it has started. The sentence will keep typing for ages. NEEDS MAJOR IMPROVEMENT
Best app ever! 5/5
This app allows you to go beyond the laptop or computer! Once you start using it you will be hooked! I love it! Great job Apple!
Is Pages intended for composition? 2/5
Though I don’t heavily use Pages, occasionally, when composing, I need to utilize either subscript or superscript characters. Using Unicode characters for this is time consuming and limited in its offerings. Though Apple products and apps have been my preference, I notice that if I use MS Word sub/super script characters are a breeze. Apple is brilliant—on the things that they choose to address. I’d say its past time for making the use of sub/superscript characters to get some of Apple’s brilliance applied to it.
So buggy 2/5
I love Apple but this is such a buggy poorly made app. Someone should spend time fixing the bugs. I just purchased and iPad Pro and the Beta for the pen is awful. Make it work right. I had to get a different App, though this was the main purpose for me to use the iPad.
Ok, so ima write 4/5

I don’t know yet!
This is an amazing app 5/5
By iron man,yo
This I have to say is amazing it’s like letting heaven come down and write for you.
New update HORRIBLE, did not fix any bugs it created them! 1/5
Recently upgraded from fourth generation iPad to iPad Pro.
I’ve never had any problems using Pages except for the slow refresh rate on my old iPad. So far this was working fine until just recently.. I was working on a document & wasn’t finished… Left the app open which is what I’ve done for quite a while and today needed to finish it to send off in the mail and it is FROZEN with no way to even create another document.. i’ve closed it & re-opened checked for new updates & have most recent 1 from earlier this month. I put iPad on standby and started again ...still frozen! VERY FRUSTRATING!! Instead of fixing bugs, bugs were created. I’ve never had this kind of thing happen with my old iPad.
Smart annotations 4/5
Please add option so that the pencil can be used for navigation rather than just smart annotation.
Love it! Whats ur problems? 5/5
I have used this app for years and haven't experienced any troubles. Definitely my favorite! Would recommend! Easy to use! Great for schoolwoork!
Integration with Apple Pencil took a nose dive recently 2/5
Something happened with a recent update, because now the integration with Apple Pencil is terrible. Lags, freezes up, etc.
I can’t even type 4/5
I tried this app when I was working on a presentation for a Girl Scout meeting I have to say I was very impressed with all the functions and features but one simple thing:I couldn’t type
Every thing is awesome 5/5
It is the best ever you can write book and publish it I published a book it just didn’t make it I published it 2018 I don’t know if it is going to be published it’s called well I forgot just search miracles part 1 well this is the best

Tbh it’s ok 3/5
By Lilymoon aj
I don’t love nor do I hate it
If it weren’t for the updates 1/5
I use this app often and constantly impaired by the required updates to maintain docs in the cloud. I go in to edit the doc but it won’t let me because an update has been issued. As a writer, this ruins spontaneity. Something happens and I have to get it typed out, but I can’t. This happens almost every time. Like now for instance. I went on the App Store to complain because it just happened again. I hate to say I’m probably moving to Microsoft because of this. Other than this flaw, the app works well on my mobile devices. God forbid that the app requires an update that your device can’t handle till your IOS has updated. (Yup, that happened to me too). Apple, forcing your users to update by locking them out of their work? Shame!
Nice When Basic Functions... Function 3/5
Overall, Pages is fairly intuitive once one learns the navigation. However, there are some very basic but exceedingly annoying issues. For example, it can’t seem to manage to properly render anything under a 3pt dotted line (exporting results in a squares rather than dots) - a known issue since at least February. The small things make a big difference in user experience.
This app is so beyond useless. 1/5
The thought that someone might take pride in this miserable thing breaks my heart at the low level humanity sunk to.
