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.
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.

Forced updates prevent you from working. - I left microsoft products for the forced updates and forced application focus steeling and popup alerts steeling focus. Now apple forces updates, steels focus, and forces popups over you work. I no longer have a reason to use these products. This was the straw that broke the camels back, I'm going linux full time, I'm exhausted by abusive engineering that puts usability last.
Bad at working with graphs, change to Libre - When grabing graphs or screenshots into the documents, not very convenient to freely determine where to put some words, also, when hitting enter sometimes the screnshots or graphs can move to some random places in the documents which is ridiculous. Basically, I don't think I will keep using pages unless the bugs get fixed. Move to the Libre Office for now.
its ok - i like this app but it doesnt have all the templates that i grew to like on word but other than that i guess its ok
search in Arabic - In Arabic language there is no different betweeb "ذهب" and "ذَهَبَ". The second letter contains sound characters and the first one does not. So when We search a letter We need to find both of them even if we didnt write sound characters, I mean the search has to dismiss sound characters. Pages app does not dismiss them. so serach is useless in Arabic.
PAGES is Elegance - I've been a Pages user since forever. It left Word by the wayside long ago, and I went with Pages. I was a Word user when MS created it for Jobs, but over time MS turned it into a Dog— kludgy and hard to find the simplest actions. Moreover, I can publish right in Pages. In the old days I went through the learning and using process for a half dozen publishing applications, and Pages made them all look overly complex and hard to learn and use. Let's hope Apple continues to respect what they have in Pages and keeps it simple and elegant to use.
