Good app...not perfect 3/5
By Hear me out
I love to use this app to create check lists, lists and documents. It works great for these things, however when creating flyers and such it becomes a bit annoying with grouping, ungrouping images. Especially if you are not using an external mouse and just using your finger. I also have trouble locating documents where they should be when sorted by date/time/or recently viewed. Otherwise, this app does what it’s supposed to do, works great for documents and I enjoy the added images/graph options available.
Keep up the Good work 5/5
Just got it, but it’s good for my experience
Hi! everything is grate, just one question. can You explain me, please, how to make text style (font etc) PERMANENT on Ipad. Thanks! boris
Free and Simple. 5/5
By Far Echo
Excellent tool for writers trying to avoid paying subscriptions to write digitally.
I use this app each and everyday! Just a suggestion: 5/5
I have a suggestion to make. Why don’t you make a mode that the users can turn on that’s easier on the eyes. Like, turn the background of the document a different color. The white is kinda harsh on my eyes. That mixed with the small letters, gives users headaches easily. If you could do that, I’d really be grateful to you!
I realize that this is supposed to be a review and so, I will review. This app is perfect for writers like myself. The only problem is that I have to strain to see the letters because they’re small.
Just a question... 4/5
By Sour Grapez
Um well, can you see other people's books and read them without changing it?Well if that is actually something you can do, does the book have to be posted?It should be posted and thank you for reading this if you read it and please respond because I want a app like that so I can share my story's because I want to have my story's like,coming out like a author and being read all over the world.And if you don't have this please add this because I'll give this app 5 stars and I'd love to add 100 stars but I can't but I'd only want to add 100 if this update is made and it doesn't have it and I'm new to this pages thing soooo just may want to help new people out like me!
New update won’t load 1/5
I never had a problem with this app before, now it won’t load. Even tried uninstalling and still won’t do anything.
Remove this appppppp 1/5
By tired of wifi updates
Remove it now
I have a ton of reports and projects all the time and constantly try to find the best app to help me do so, and also love to write on my own. I also use Google Documents among a few others, and let me say this, all of these apps have their unique pros and cons. I like that Pages is easy to use to design and uncomplicated. Sometimes it does glitch and once, I think, all of my documents disappeared but that was resolved quickly. Yes, it probably could be improved but nothing’s perfect. Overall I would recommend it.
Drawing is great 5/5
I love drawing with my Apple Pencil on pages I just wish you could be able to turn drawings into animations but besides that it’s great
Impossibility to use App on the PROMPT. 3/5
The update has 200 MB size, and asked for Wi-Fi connection. I do not have any Wi-Fi around here, so I need to go local Walmart or library. But, I may do download via cell data since I have umlimited data in my plan. But I cannot. And I cannot use the Notes App, and I cannot update. This is the restriction by the program developer asking extra on the top of the word. Why???
By Bromato chip
Amazing! I like it sooooooooo much. I am into writing books and it let’s me publish them. So many font styles. And so much else. I would like a kind of like shaky, scary but weirdish font to be added or let us design our own. But it is awesome! Definitely recommend. One other thing, any time I highlight something over 150 pages, it glitches me out. Can you fix that? Thank you!
-Pages is the best word processor app on the market.
-There isn't a large learning curve.
Great for Scrapbooking 5/5
I use this app to print page titles and photo descriptions!
Works great for times I don’t use my Cricut to cut out titles and labels.
Poor Pages 1/5
That’s the best I can say for it...and now the clunky wonky thing refuses to update..been at it for days...in order to access the knitting pattern files I saved here I have to go through the file app
Fix or dump Apple Programmers!
Deletes yourvdicuments. 1/5
This used to be a good app but the upadates make it less than useless. It cannot find documents or deletes them. I spent an hour creating a document to have it deleted. Also not compatible with word so cannot edit it on your computer nor share with anyone unless they have this app. Absolute garbage.
Constantly locks up 1/5
For over a year now, Pages freezes up nearly every day. I’ve talked to Apple techs about it but they can’t fix it. It happens at some point nearly every time I use the app. What’s going on? This is seriously frustrating. Instead of adding fancy denatures to this app, why not fix the basics?!
Amazing app 4/5
By Cindle Mango
Pages is an amazing app and I highly recommend it to all writers. The many fonts and colors you can make your text give a unique touch to any piece of writing. All the many templates are extremely helpful. Overall Pages is simply amazing. Only one suggestion, when you add a shape you should be able to customize the color with a color wheel like when you edit the color of text.
ew its disgusting 1/5
I cant even use it. I tried making a document, it worked just fine but theeeeeeeeeeeen i get out and it saves only me cropping a photo and deleted lorem ispum text. Great. I get out and back in a few times and none of my old documents are there. I didnt see my other complaint here, and you probably never would’ve responded because clearly you cant make any of your apps function properly. You have the brains to make devices but not the brains for apps, i know coding is hard but if you cant do it you should just stop upgrading, which, you might as well be down-grading because clearly the new update doesn't allow me to use pages on my iPad. This is my second review, and it just goes to show this update has no value, and i cant use it. Today i was able to create a document, yet i couldnt customize a text layer, only text where it lets you type and you dont need to add anything. I'd rather play gacha and look at popsicle pictures all day than have to deal with this utterly disgusting app. Bro, if this offends sorry, but ya don't gotta cry to ya mama bout that, you act like this app is so great when it has no value for me. And other people who get this, i feel your pain, i mean, it hasnt been fixed, the most depressed people have creative minds, and writing on paper just kills their arms. So they wanna use this but guess what? Your “update” doesn’t let anyone experiencing my problem, well, do anything. Do you understand? Bye anyway.
Generally great; iPad autocorrect an inconsistent mess 2/5
As a writer who uses specialized terms with diacritics, I have an extensive library of text shortcuts and custom autocorrections. They work in the IPad version of Pages...sometimes. Sometimes the same word typed three times will correct once; sometimes it will suddenly change when I’m typing several lines down the page. This inconsistency cripples an otherwise excellent app for those who write in languages that use diacritics.
Pages needs a work around to open files. 1/5
So, I have files covered under pages, but I cant open from Pages. I have to open them from under the “Files” app. How come Apple sells a computer stand for 1k, but cant get a basic phone app to work correctly? Seems like their focus is misplaced.
It’s Really Great 5/5
I think pages is really good, I’m not sure why so many people have a thing against it, I think it works well, looks good, and has a lot of features and formats. Good job apple.
Doesn’t work 1/5
App hasn’t worked in years
Swing and a miss, Apple. Can’t create anything new, not intuitive at all, and seems to think I speak Spanish..?
Using it every day, the issue seems to be fixed 5/5
An update, 5 stars: so far the new version seems to be working just fine. Thank you!!
Older review, 3 stars: 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.
Forced inefficient file hierarchy 2/5
The Apple office productivity apps want you to keep all files associated with the respective app (i.e, Pages) in a single folder.
If files are stored in another folder (the logical way we sort and store information) then Pages will create an Alias/duplicate copy and put that in the Pages folder. It does this every time you open the file.
So for example, if you want to keep various types of documents related to gardening together, and various types of documents related to cooking together, then each time you open a file an exact duplicate (same size) will be created. This is space inefficient and messy.
Rather, the app wants you to split files and keep all documents associated with either activity within one folder, or various sub-folders, under the Pages document container app folder.
This is ridiculous. Allow the app to simply open a file and let that be it.
I’ll be uninstalling this app and will continue to use a competitors product.
What’s the point of PAGES? 1/5
I save a document and can’t retrieve it! I can see the watermark of my document but can’t get past that. It’s not there! Exactly what is the purpose of this useless app????
This app is so fun because I love to draw.My parents literally call me artist !I like this game because there all kinds of colors.Pages is a great game!
My Favorite Word Processor! 5/5
Powerful and intuitive to use, this Pages for IPad works perfectly with the Pages on my Mac Book Pro. Love it!
Won’t update 1/5
Says it needs to update but never properly downloads
Gift to writers 5/5
First of all, thank you, for this greater eminently standardized App.
For me, I had written over at least 5 textbooks and so much more.. and this is just God sent and it is so facile and with so much ease, I scribe nonstop Textbooks on this App.
My one worrisome.. is that I believe that breaking in to this App is too easy. Please, work on the security of this App.
As for anyone complaining. I was shocked. If everyone that complaint, truly individualized and thereby, realized how greater this App is and learned to utilize it in a preferable and the corrected venue, they would be like me, addicted to your App.
Please, fix the security.
Thank you again🌸
It is the best app ever! 5/5
This is such a good app to make articles with!
Vous laissez les gens de faire leur choix
Reader View 3/5
It would be nice if Pages has ‘Reader View’ like Safari.
By Hanna Elf
I love Pages and never use anything else. This girl dose not do windows, ever in any form. I never use word and pages will open a word document but word won’t open a pages document proof pages is better. I am just a girl in love with IWorks (Pages Numbers Keynote). I can do all of my office /school work on my Mac with no problems and total compatibility. : )
It’s Free! I love this app! 5/5
It’s a free app so I wasn’t expecting much. I too was a graphic designer for almost 30 years and am prolific in Quark, Indesign, PM etc. They are all big learning curves for those who aren’t professionals so I won’t even compare Pages to those apps.
I don’t look at what this app can’t do - I look at what it CAN do. And am looking forward to this update. If you want more - expect to pay for it.
I’m forcing myself to learn the ins and outs of this app with a daily writing regime. Sometimes you just have to make your own deadlines to force yourself to learn. I am pleasantly surprised at what this app does. Don’t really get why anyone would complain about a free app anyways.
Very limited options 3/5
By Ambient Lizard
As a writer, I have become an expert with Word, which I am a huge fan of. However, trying to do similar functions on Pages always leaves me disappointed, as the options for editing and manipulating your text are very limited. I will use Pages in a pinch when I’m away from the PC, but email the content in an email so I can copy and paste into a Word document later. But anything written HAS NOT been solely generated by Pages, because it is a very limited, sub-par word processor in general.
No Shortcut Workaround 1/5
Trying to update a resume on a laptop with a broken keyboard. I need to cut and paste but right-clicking and selecting cut brings up a dialogue box that explains the shortcut keys rather than performing the operation.
Be careful storing your data on iCloud, you never know when Apple will implement a feature that they’re willing to lose you as a customer over and they will still own your data if you try and leave.
One important item needed: Page numbers 4/5
I love this app and have used it for years in writing books and short stories.
The major thing missing for me is the ability to start ‘Page 1’ on a different page than the first page. Also the ability to hide several page numbers rather than have this feature limited to hiding Page 1 would be helpful. Additionally it would be great to hide the page numbers on the last pages.
In books, the first numbered page comes after a few blank pages/dedication/cover page/isbn info. Also the last few pages are blank/unnumbered. So this feature would be very important for those who write fiction/nonfiction.
Otherwise it is a 5 star app.
I love Pages more than Word 5/5
By KELCI BRAVO
It’s just better. I use it on my iPad Pro and its amazing. You just have to learn the program.
Comments on Notes 4/5
I have been using notes for 8 years. I have used it extensively to write significant events in my life which I copy and paste to Facebook. Recently. I thought I would print the notes and file as a hard copy. I was utterly disappointed to note that many of my writings have disappeared. I read a notification somewhere that in future, the notes cannot be retained indefinitely. In that case,are they saved elsewhere ? I need help from the Apple.
My alternative to retrieve is to go through Facebook records and retrieve them. But this is a painful process. I don’t mind if these are transfered to another file but they should be readily available for printing.
Why can’t we have SAVE mechanism on Ipad like windows.
Apple seem to be hell bent to prove they are different. Why can’t Pages be Documents. All said and done the Average user is more exposed to Windows.
Pretty Good! 4/5
First, I literally have NO idea what the haters are talking about. Maybe it just runs really good on my device, maybe I'm just crazy. (I am definitely crazy but) This app works really well! If you are just starting out writing or have even been writing for a long time, get this app! It's a really good app, however, I would argue that there are other better writing apps than this. I prefer to use pages and haven't used anything else for writing except notes, but this might not be right for everybody. I want to be either and actress or an author, so this is extremely helpful. I use pages so often and it is such a good app! But there ARE a few problems...
Changing the font, size, and boldness: For me, changing these things is a big struggle because they are so difficult to access. I try to use the italic boldness for thoughts or emphasized words when writing, and it's just really hard to access...
Return: When you press return to make a new line, it leaves a huge gap between the first and the new line. This is a BIG problem for me as when I'm using quotation marks, sometimes I don't want it to say who said it every five seconds, and THIS just looks bad. "Why" "I dunno..." >.<
Italic: I've noticed that if I change to italic or a different font, then write one letter, then backspace because I didn't mean to press that, it goes back to the original font. I FREAKING HATE THIS. It's not that big of an issue, it's just annoying, and a big pet-peeve of mine...
Other than that, this is a great game and I would definitely suggest it to beginners.
Creativity “expresser” 5/5
PAGES. LETS. YOU. IMAGINE. WRITE. CREATE. ENJOY.
Great app! 4/5
This app is so fun to use. I am currently typing a story on it. There are some glitches, but other than that, it’s a great typing app.
Keeps wanting to UPDATE 1/5
App does not seem to be working. Keeps wanting to update
Make an Appointment pop up 1/5
There must be a bug in this ap. Every time I go to message someone, a “make an appointment” pop up annoys the heck out of me. I hit cancel 100xs in one conversation. Horrible.
It also took over my ability to edit my page banners from Facebook. I don’t like being forced to open another ap just to upload a new banner pic. Annoying!
By my best friend is crazy
When I got pages I hated myself but I started to write my feelings down and it made me think be positive because you are talented and never think other wise
Smart? Annotation 2/5
It would be be nice if the smart annotation beta worked. Unless I remember to click “done” every two minutes it is guaranteed to crash losing all of my comments and markings.
After using this app for a year now, I am finally at the frustration level of giving it a bare two stars simply because you can basically use it to produce a simple document - without too much trouble. However, try to add photos or do anything creative and it has all the tantrums of a two year old.
