  • ONE Problem and only ONE!!!


    By Snikpoh9402
    I absolutely LOVE pages, numbers and keynote. I have Office on my MacBook but prefer these over Office hands down. I have purchased so many of the template apps as well, that now I think I could open a business creating documents for others. The problem is that the rest of the world does not use these Mac apps. Most of the time, I have to send my masterpieces that I spend hours on back to the office where everyone uses Office, so before I do, I have to send the document to myself so I can see what changes were made in Office and then make it look as close to what I originally created as possible. There should be better compatibility between the 2. Many have complained about the font shortage. That is definitely a true issue, but my biggest complaint is the compatibility. When I import docs from Office to iWork there are also issues (background color or font color changes in keynote, drop down menus change in numbers, etc.) Please, please, please do something to improve this. I love playing with the templates and creating beautiful items that everyone thinks I'm a great graphical genius, but if the rest of the office can't see them, using/buying these apps is pointless.
  • Can’t create new documents on the iPhone app version


    By Icosace1022
    I don’t use this app very often and in fact mainly use it to make memes every now and then, ergo, I can’t said much about how great the app is. HOWEVER, I will mention this one complaint that has stopped me from being able to use the app on my iPhone. The app never stops loading a new document when I select one, after pressing the plus sign. After deleting and reinstalling the Pages app several times, and even getting to a place where I had Wi-fi, it still didn’t allow me to create anything new. Also, it wouldn’t let me open a document up I originally made; I thought I could just open up an old and delete everything and rename it later, but the app couldn’t even open something that was old. Eventually I gave up and just downloaded the app to my iPad, and it worked fine. Although, I don’t take my iPad everywhere, of course, and would appreciate it if you fix this problem with the iPhone version. I have no idea myself on what’s going on, maybe the loading is taking forever. Hopefully you guys can figure it out. Thanks.
  • lag and keeps changing my formatting


    By Chicken_the_God
    Seriously problematic. I even reduced as many features as possible and it has a ton of latency on my iPad 4 (no that's not that old->fast enough to play vainglory no problem. no speed problems searching the internet). I have 1 page documents that have 2 columns and the latency is atrocious. It's a 1 page list! how can this have more lag than a touchscreen moba?! I turned off every bonus feature i could find and it still lags when i click to edit or copy paste...oh and did i mention this new update is reformatting my layout? titles are now somehow in the same row as the text and even after i fix it by separating the two-->but wait! i open the document and they are on top of each other again. This is ridiculous. oh and i'd edit this, but why bother---clearly its totally cool now days to just put things out there without quality control. and i may sound like that guy that's critical on everything--i'm not! I never give bad reviews! Seriously never---but this basic app has been giving me problems for months. i've posted on the ios boards, read every possible thing i could about the problem---nothing helps. I just want to cut and paste and click without waiting 3 seconds every-time i click to edit---and final i thought they fixed it! nope! 10x worse and with new and exciting formatting problems!
  • Unforgivably bad typographic controls!


    By omalansky
    As a former graphic designer who used PageMaker, InDesign and even Pages professionally on the Mac for many years, I was shocked when I downloaded Pages to my iPad for the very first time and saw how simple-minded its typographic controls are. Line-spacing, to mention an obvious example, can only be adjusted in 0.25-line increments, which is practically useless to anyone who knows anything at all about typography. Even TextEdit, the simplest of all basic word processors, can adjust line-spacing by tenths. Meanwhile, there are no tracking adjustments at all. Even Bean, another simple word processing app that offers better typographic adjustments than TextEdit, includes finely-calibrated tracking adjustments. These two features, tracking and line spacing, are absolutely basic essentials for any “desktop publishing” app worthy of the name. Pages for iPad gets a big “FAIL!” for these unforgivable omissions. It is nothing more than a basic word processor with a few fancy templates thrown in. I won’t get into the extremely mediocre font selection, or the lack of another feature as basic as default document layout and font parameters that are automatically applied to all new basic documents. I could write a book about how anemic and inadequate Pages for iPad truly is, but I won’t.
  • Literally amazing


    By Puppyluv4life
    I love the app, and I use it to write my books. I do have one idea, though. I think you could have a grammar assistant, similar to Grammarly, but free. When I write, sometimes I do get off track in my tenses (for example, I would write “I said” instead of “I say” but not notice it), and it would be sUpEr cool if Apple had a software IN Pages that helped you with that. For example, you could have different settings like “change tense” added to the “More” tab. What these settings would do is present a question asking what tense you’re writing in, you answer, then it reads your document and highlights all the errors in it, making suggestions for changes to make. You would also have the option to ignore or accept the change, since you could be in a flashback and need to be in the past tense, but the rest of your document is in present tense. I think that this would be a great addition to the app and make it all the more worth using. Thank you so much for reading this!!
  • iPad Pro document organization weird


    By Sue from p'ton
    I LOVE PAGES. I USE IT DAILY. I ENJOY SMART ANNOTATION BETA. YIPPIE! But... For some time now Pages on my iPad Pro does not organize my "recent" documents accurately according to date. Now Recents includes documents from 2018 and just 3 from 2019, only one of which I opened yesterday. Notice that I add to 3 (THREE) documents daily. I have figured out how to find these by going to Browse for one, but for the third document I have to go to Browse, select iCloud Drive, select Pages and select a particular folder and then am able to find the document. Immediately after I close Pages, these two searched-for documents retreat into Browse again, so if I want to see these two documents I repeat the little Browse searches identically. Previously Recents actually included all recently used documents. Why? This problem occurred with my iPhone X for a few days, but an upgrade to iOS 12.1.2 fixed it. I have been not-so-patiently waiting for the correction to occur on IPad Pro on which I have upgraded to iOS 12.1.1. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FIX THIS. I BEG YOU!
  • New problems that are time suckers


    By Grinandbaritone
    I love Pages and use it for writing almost exclusively. In one of the recent updates there was a change to how you move the cursor, and it is beyond frustrating. I want the old version of the cursor landing where I touch. This new version makes it impossible to split to words if there was no space between when typing without spending time moving it around with the space bar. The space bar thing is cool but not at the expense of being able to touch the screen to move the cursor to a precise location. Then sometimes it chooses a word, sometimes it won’t. Sometimes I can it to pop up the menu with select and select all and sometimes I cannot. I use this on an iPad Pro and find myself frustrated on a daily if not hourly basis. This same thing applies to text messages and emails. I simply find it most frustrating in Pages because I use it so much. I would have given at least 4 stars and will amend if they this is fixed. Thank you!
  • Utterly devoid of even a sliver of value


    By Kaiser Soze is my nickname but they say someone else is using it.
    Each time Apple has issued a new release of Pages for iPad, it has gotten slower. So long as you stay strictly in a typing mode, without repositioning the input location or highlighting text, it works just fine. But if you need to make a change a sentence or two back, the wait for the application to respond to this is sometimes greater than fifteen seconds. I don't understand how people who are supposed to know something about software can do this kind of thing. Don't they even bother to try and use the thing they implemented? I just do not get it. I've checked the amount of free memory, I've closed all other apps, I've rebooted the iPad. The problem is in the app. When you reposition the insertion points, the software takes a hike, no doubt due to some bug, because there is no possible way that anything that it might ought to be doing should take that long. Apple does not test their software. Apple honestly does not know how to develop software. They don't understand the crucial role of requirements documents in the design process, and they do not make any more than a token effort to test it before releasing it.

    Hi! I’m Meredith! I just ❤️ this app so much! Writing stories is so much fun! You can write just about ANYTHING! You can even be inspired by new ideas! Writers have new thoughts everyday! I have about 116 stories on pages and it’s amazing. I usually don’t always get the chance to edit them, because when you’re writing that many stories it’s not easy multitasking. I require everybody who enjoys writing or wants a chance to write something juicy. You can make stories that have to do with dreams, drama comedy or just about anything! You can use gorgeous fonts and gorgeous colors to make your stories detailed! I love this app! I surely would recommend it to anybody who loves to write as much as me! But I love that when you stop writing it still saves your work and it shows where you left off. You can even delete your notes and make new ones!!! Thank you pages for making my writing career better each day!
  • Several Basic Operations Missing or Flawed


    By reviewer057
    The following needs to be improved before Pages for iPhone will earn 5 stars from me: Inability for me to either modify Basic Templates or allowing me to create my own templates. Because of this, I am forced to tediously redo template parameters for every single document I create. The ability to do this is available in MSN Word for iPhone. Since the issuance of iOS13 and its revisions to on-screen cursor operations, I am constantly frustrated by the following: 1) the inability to easily position the cursor within a word or between two improperly conjoined words, and particularly within words highlighted by the program as mis-spelled and 2) the difficulty in selecting a group of words because I am unable to move my finger away from blocking the view of my selection while I’m making it. These problems don’t exist for me in either Notes or most other iPhone apps where I find the new cursor operations a real improvement over the old.
