Hate The Update 1/5
I get that the latest update was done for the ease of sharing documents across multiple devices, but I hate the way the update no longer allows the user the ability to choose where documents get created and stored.
The fact you now force everyone who uses the app to use a cloud account or they cannot use the app at all, is extremely annoying! I HATE having no ability to choose where I create and store my documents.
I love Pages. I would love it even more if you could incorporate the ruler tool that’s in the Notes Sketch app into Smart Annotation. A compass too would be even better! Would be a life saver for drawing lines and shapes!
An apple app, with delay in apple pencil draw recognition. So sad.
I love all of my apple! 5/5
This and other is way best! I can make stuff! A home hub, memories company’s and what is from em what my house has and much more and I seriously ain’t kidding. What else? I measure record and make videos I totally love apple! Thank u for making such a popular company like this 😍🥰😊😊😊😊😘😘😘😘😍😍😍😍😍😍😃😃😃
All of my items were deleted!! How did this happen?! I had my resumé and cover letters on there and well as other important items!! I’m so irritated!!
Don’t bother 1/5
A couple years ago, particularly for the sake of convenience, on my iPhone iPad, I used Pages to create documents. Navigating formatting was tricky, but I looked past that. I wasn’t looking to create anything fancy. I was able to type my document which was my goal. Now, this app is horrible. Despite the fact I’ve tried using it again and again, my frustration and huge disappointment with this app grows. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
10/10 for school work 5/5
I was just doing my work and it’s very easy to use and since it’s right on my phone or macbook it’s easy to get on to. I recommend
You need to by this app 5/5
By Molly Rose Palmer
I absolutely love pages, it has different pages for different topics which is why I give it five stars. You can write a straight up essay, you can make a list you can make slides and more. It lets your creativity run free. There are so many apps were I will need to have a brochure but they don’t have kind of set and I end up making it myself. It is such a pain and a waste of my time but with this app it has so many setting. I love this app so much and you have to get it.

Awesome app just wish you can have to different documents side by side it also need an easier way to manage fonts hopefully system wide.
Long time user - It Won’t Open! 1/5
Pages will not open any more. I’ve been using Apple products exclusively since 1990. Never a problem like this... Pages won’t open any more! Three little flashes of my files and then:
“Error. Something went wrong while displaying documents. Try again”.
I have tried. Then I have deleted and re-installed Pages 10 times and still get the same message. I have done shut down/restart. Hard restart.... whatever I can think of. I can get into my folders by going through the Files app, but can’t edit the document or start new ones. If I try, it goes to the error page.
I have an iPad Pro 10.5” using iOS 12.1.4. help?
I used to love this app but not anymore...... 1/5
Ok so I was writing a story and then I got on pages again and the story was deleted and I had been working on for a long time and I’m very sad about this but after all it’s a cool app but please fix this
I really like this app
worst idea ever 1/5
I didn't ask you to change anything. Smart annotations is an awful idea. I mean, I might like it if the off button STAYED OFF.
I use the pencil to type. I type four words and it brings out the red pen. Well. I don't know. It's a little too early don't you think? I hate pages now. You are awful people. Horrible. Go back to living with your mothers.
Please fix ASAP 4/5
I love this app and all because of the many easy to use features. However, there is a minor problem that has turned into a major one for me. I’ve been using this app to write my novel, finally figured how to directly publish from this application. But something is holding me back. There is a way to number the pages, but what about deleting a page number? I can’t publish my novel without getting the final page number out of there. So many downfalls, and I thought something was ready to work, already had a hard enough time getting the actual page numbers in there correctly without times numeral. So please help by updating, apple support couldn’t even help me with this! They agreed it was a flaw of the system!
IPAD 4 IS OLD, the PRO IS NOT 5/5

Problems with latest pages version 2/5
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.
Better Than Word, But One Major Flaw That Costs It 3 Stars 2/5
As a professional writer who wrote my first two book on Word, Pages’ functional simplicity that lets me create complex documents without Word’s cluttered UI and morass of obscure functions ensures I don’t ever have to endure that ordeal again. BUT, Pages is missing one tiny feature, that for me, is a major flaw—it has no Look Up function.
Anywhere in iOS where there is text, from Books to Safari, if you select one or more words, one of the options you get is Look Up, which either gets you the definition of the selection, or the chance to use it in a web search. I work with a lot of technical material, both in reading and writing, and the Look Up function is an indispensable tool. Except in Pages, it seems, where it has been dispensed with entirely.
Why oh why, Apple, when you are known for your UI consistency across your applications and platforms, would you leave out this system level tool that is available even in many apps that don’t need it? This is like a Microsoft level design flaw. It’s like turning off the computer with the Start command. How on Earth did you build a creative tool like Pages, then decide to leave out the most basic of research tools? I’m just astounded. And disappointed. And mourning all the time I waste copying little bits of text, switching to Safari, pasting, searching, then switching back to Pages, only to have to do it all again all too soon.
Apple, your users love you because you pay attention to these little details that would otherwise be repeating pain points. Or at least, you used to. Get back to your roots. Sweat the small stuff.
Great app overall, recently had some issues 3/5
Recently, I’ve enjoyed writing. I began writing this story and enjoyed the process, until my iPad no longer had any storage left. I freed some space and then went back onto the Pages app to continue my story. I attempted to open the document that I was working on and found that I couldn’t open it. I tried everything I could possibly think of from Pages settings to iPhone settings. Nothing has worked. Has anyone else had this problem? And if so, what did you do to fix it?
Hi! I really can't believe that it was difficult for You to do most Important and Simple thing, to find easy and intuitive way to make default font permanent! I am highly intelligent person and I don't get it and don't use Your text editor just for that stupid reason. it's just unbelievable, what was You thinking about when creating it?!

Sure it ain’t perfect but it’s still great 4/5
By Conrad Keely
Simplicity is it’s strength. My word processor of choice. No subscription necessary.
No Add To Dictionary 1/5
There is no way to add words to the dictionary. As someone who uses quite a few terms of art, this means I’m stuck with an entire page of red-lines. My only option is to turn off spell-check, which raises a whole NEW host of problems. This is such a stupidly simple fix that Apple refuses to add. It boggles the mind.
Thank you 4/5
Thank you so much for fixing the screen orientation issue! I’ve already started back using the app way more.
Minimalism gone wrong 1/5
By Funny name here
The point of a word processing program is to create and edit documents efficiently. Pages seems to have the goal of having as few commands as possible rather than making the commands easily accessible. It is very difficult to do anything besides type or perhaps change the font. Do not use this app unless you have no other choice.
Lacks Consistent Basic Functionality 1/5
When this app works, it’s just okay. When it doesn’t work, which is most of the time, I’m not able to create documents, I’m not able to browse files I have stored on Google Drive despite the two apps being connected, and it has a slew of other problems. It’s strange that Pages for Mac can be so great, but Pages for iPad feels like a poorly-developed third-party knockoff.
It failed 1/5
By elle savant
I has a science report I had one more paragraph to so in I went on the day before it was due and I could not find the report it completely refreshed and confused me. I had to write the report again in one day. I am never going to use pages again. It is confusing and makes a long time to understand in general. I would rather use notability I am very unimpressed.
Not Happy with the new update to this App. 1/5
Please make this app more user friendly like it was before please 🙏 really not happy with the up date.
How Archaic 1/5
This app still doesn't support vertical writing for 日本語 and 한국어? Stuck in the days when this app was first launched huh? Microsoft Word (which continue to be superior in every way) has has this feature for how long? I guess I'll just have to continue using notes with my apple pencil and word for typing. I just love how many editing features that word has and pages lacks. It took how long to change the font colour again?
So bad.... Pages is unusable 1/5
I’ve been using apple products (iPad Pro, iPhones) for 10 years- been upgrading as new products comes in.. but today will be my very last day. Been working for 2 years on a project of about 300 courses on pages. I was happy I was done today. My client was ready to upload the courses to their website. We exported to word, but upon uploading the exported word documents, the lessons was displayed from right to left(RLT) like I was using Arabic or . It was unusable. My clients students are English and not Arabic. So it is usually. The punctuation and numbered letters went all to the right instead of left. My IPad and Mac is in English, I never used any Arabic setting. We immediately tested google docs, exported, Uploaded and all was perfect. We tried Microsoft word directly, all was perfect. This proved to us Pages was the problem. It meant because the documents was originally from pages, there was problems. All lessons/courses on pages are styled and crafted with pictures for different sections. How do I start all over again with 300 courses on google words or Microsoft word? For another 2 years? I can’t copy and paste from pages or exported words because all styles were removed and pictures won’t copy. We called apple customer care, was on the phone for about 5 hours but no help, was told sorry we can’t help. Apple just took 2 years out of my life. I’m done with Apple. I’ll just sell all the Apple products and use some other products that is compatible universally.
My advice: If you going to be transferring your files else where, don’t ever use Apple(not only pages.. because at this point, I can’t trust any of their products). But if all you will ever do is within Apple, if you’ll never need to relate your files else where in the future (which I bet you don’t know for now) then continue using Apple.
— An Angry and shattered Apple customer.
Follow up: Called in an editor specialist, he checked the documents source code, there we saw the strings 'direction:rtl;' and ' dir="rtl"'.. If I open the file on pages it’s normal, but uploading else where it’s RTL, whereas word, Libra office and google docs templates upload fine. Now, I have to copy and paste the documents to a fresh word documents, edit everything there, save and upload. This worked well. Technically, I’m starting all over again for about 5000 pages of documents that took me over 2 years to prepare.
My take: Apple should stop disgracing themselves making wack apps. If you aren’t ready for something.. just wait till your ready and stop frustrating and wasting people’s time with your inefficiency.
Great on bells & whistles Free and worth it 2/5
By Fred Flintstone.
Absolutely beautiful, but : Crashes constantly, hard to edit etc. Like that old GF who looked great but was an idiot, not mean but an idiot. Worth exactly what you paid for it.
Spent a hour trying to edit text.
User forums also frustrated.
Took forever to figure out setting to turn on the Pencil for editing text .. in which the setting to turn it On is not in the Pages App .. but in the General Settings for the iPad IOS under Pages.
How ridiculous are you Apple?
Another bad Apple feature from a poor interface management.
Jobs would have fixed it
LOVE Dropbox sync, view, and edit. But glitches. (Please fix) 3/5
By Huckleberry RV
I love that I can insert new docs into Dropbox through this app with beautiful formats and editing features. The synching and file management potential is amazing too... But...
Glitch 1: Saving and renaming docs is confusing, and if not done in the right proccess.. you'll end up with a bazillion conflicted copies. (YouTube to see right way to avoid this problem) or Developers please add button that says "save" or "rename" that's coded nicely to avoid doc sync errors ...blank saves and the sorts.
Glitch 2: Drawing feature with Smart annotation Beta:
Theres 2 popups for drawing on bottom screen when the pencil touches screen. The "draw" at the right WILL save and changes appear on Dropbox file when opened, the "smart annotation" at the left WILL NOT save the changes once you save and open in Dropbox. (Why not just marry the two, make it more simple without box input that smoothly saves?) I can't go without the dotted line/lasso/crop tool... It's amazing for quick cropping my drawings.
Just a reminder: Your drawing capability is competing with Good notes and Notability, PAID APPS
My review is 3 stars..only because of glitches. Make some refinements and marketing and I think this could be BIG for many others !! I'm ditching Notability because you have the lasso/crop tool I need for my hand written notes. Thanks and good luck.
I'm on iPad pro. Equipped with keyboard and apple pencil.
Get it together, Apple 2/5
Thanks Apple for having your own product, Pages, periodically freeze on my iPad. Have to turn iPad off and back on to get Pages to unfreeze. Geez.

Kind of useless 3/5
3 stars (on mobile) because if you want to quickly turn images into a pdf, this works fine, but if you want to do anything else or anything slightly fancy on mobile (like delete a page) it’s kind of useless.
Tried forcing myself to use this app again and it is still kind of useless. I am using this on an iPhone X. After arbitrarily adding an extra page to the end of the document, it now refuses to delete the page. It is frustrating that the app actually fails to do simple tasks like delete a page. For whatever reason it will not let me select just one page to delete and tries to delete all the pages. Yes I’m using thumbnail mode. I generally only use this app to make a quick pdf with several images, but the app’s inability to do a simple task like delete a page drives me insane. You would think something as simple and rudimentary as deleting a page would not have any issues.

Trash It 1/5
By New York Consultant
I loved Pages but now it will not even create a new document. Deleted and downloaded again and still does not work. Worst ever Apple product from a company who normally gets it right.
Keeps telling me I have messages and when I go to look there is nothing but the red number stays on the app ALL THE TIME
By pl person
I use this app for all my school needs! Great! Almost like Word! Maybe even better! I recommend this app to any one.
Pages is impossible! It’s the worst app ever! I’m going to try to get my documents out of it and delete it!! It’s totally unfriendly and unpredictable.
