Version 5.2
Review by Thalesian

Great for almost everything - I get told all the time by folks that if you want to be serious about documents, you have to use Microsoft Word. Typically, the (very serious) folks who tell me this have not been published. As someone who regularly uses Pages on Mac, iPad, and even iPhone to write and prepare scientific papers for publication, it is fine. I have had no problem exporting documents as either .doc or .docx for final versions of manuscripts to be published in journals like PLoS One. I can quickly import images from ArcGIS or R to add figure captions. Table creation is a breeze. Pages is a great tool, and document syncing makes my life a lot easier. I can jot down some new ideas and paragraphs on my iPad while on a plane, and then continue with a manuscript from my Mac at an office or at home. In short, if your primary needs for a word editor are a place to write and format text, or to add comments or track changes, Pages is fine. About the only limitation I’ve found is the Table of Contents (speficially, having multiples of these). But that is honestly the only setback I have had in the past 4 years of using Pages to prepare manuscripts for publication.

Version 5.5.3
Review by madman420

Apple needs to pull their head out - Apple software quality has gone downhill way too far. I’ve been a loyal Apple user for 30 years (yes, even when Apple sucked worse than now), but I’m finally considering ditching anything and everything I own that has that silly little apple icon on it, because it has become a symbol for frustration, poor quality, and inconsistency (things “just not working”). Just read all of the other one-star reviews if you want to know my feeling about this version of the Pages app. Apple has stopped listening to its customers, though. They don’t care about our needs—they only care about the most effective ways to pull cash out of our wallets without us noticing, because they refuse to provide the value for which we’d willingly pay. How dare you destroy the previous purchases of Pages ’09 by disabling it and replacing it with a crippled version? Apple should be sued! Customers didn’t give you permission to delete any software for which they’ve paid, or to remove features after payment. Apple doesn’t care about creatives anymore—they want consumers only!! They figure that companies like Adobe will provide all creative software necessary for Apple’s creative developers. Unfortunately, it means that Apple has abandoned us.

Version 6.1.1
Review by 999nickname

Pages has been gutted — Avoid this software! - UPDATE 6.1.1, May 7 2017. Still not ready for prime time. Pages 09 was a great wordprocessor and simple page layout program. It had its limitations but was solid. All versions of Page 5.xx and 6.xx (so far) are, as an early reviewer put, an “unmitigated disaster.” Here are some of the nearly 100 things you could do in Pages 09 that you cannot do in Pages 6.1.1: - No linked text boxes. This makes writing brochures, newsletters, etc. extremely clumsy - No “facing pages,” i.e., ability to have left/right headers and footers. This makes books & booklets impossible - No native mail merge (there is a cumbersome 3rd party app) - No non-contiguous text selection - CRIPPLED find/replace (for example, you can’t find/replace straight quotes with smart quotes—really.) - You cannot print comments. - clumsy implementation of word count. Instead of being able to see word/page count at a glance, ythere is a little bubble that obsciures some of your text that reports word count. You need to click to see page count. &c. &c. Garbage. Avoid.

Version 6.1.1
Review by jimhs1946

Thanks for making my life miserabale AGAIN!! - I got a message last week telling me to upgrade to the newest greatest version of Pages. I lhit the OK button and absolutely nothing happened, except that I have lost every stinkin’ document I had saved in Pages, some of which were very important to me, and have no idea how to get them back again if it is even possible. Why can’t they just leave things alone? It seems that every time you get used to using an application, whatever it may be, some genius somewhere decides it need to be changed, and things never work as good as they did before. If it’s not broke don’t fix it, PLEASE!!

Version 6.1.1
Review by Reticent Faux

After 4 years, STILL missing BASIC functionality - I was a huge Pages fan back before the redesign in 2013. Pages ’09 (v 4.x) was elegant and powerful. Then with Pages v 5.x they stripped out 80% of its features, including the basic things a word processing and layout app should have. Every couple updates I try again to see if Apple has returned Pages to its former glory, and I’m sad to report the answer is still an emphatic “nope!” As an example of basic functionality missing, I need to print a PDF with slightly different formatting on left-facing and right-facing pages (verso and recto); you know, one of the most fundamental layout options for printed material. Can Pages 6.x do this? Nope. Sigh. Why Apple? Why? Why have you ruined this application and after four years still let it slide in such a sorry state? Is anybody at Apple paying attention to the shockingly bad review scores for this app? Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?
