Great software that rivals the costly & unnecessary Microsoft

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Great! Got used to it very quickly and I could never go back to Microsoft. After using pages for years, Microsoft seems like a stone-age software (and an expensive one at that!)

Pros:

How easy it is to use, the great templates, the overall product design (with the vibrant colours and informational icons) and the fact that it is free!

Cons:

Might need some more functionality, although I have never really needed any other softwares that Apple doesn't offer for free to its clients!

The best but flawed alternative to MS Office

4.0 8 months ago

Comments: Despite the bugs, it is my best tool to work on Mac and iPad.

Pros:

It is simple. It is quick. It is reliable. It is easy to access. Pages is a useful tool for quickly creating and editing documents. You can easily write a letter, design a document, and share it with your iPad to continue working on it later.It grew in its functionalities and is getting better and better with years.

Cons:

It is still missing some functionalities or those features are limited in comparison with MS Office, the tool Apple claims to be the successor to with iWork Suite. Sometimes Pages crashes due to iCloud syncing problems, I suppose. To embed fonts is not possible or fonts used on Mac are missing then on iPad when one wants to continue ones work there. Sadly.

Reasonable alternative to MS Word

3.0 3 weeks ago New

Pros:

Pages does a reasonable good of providing word processing features. Thr UI has clean feel to it which I like. Because Apple are behind it its unlikely to stop being supported in the future.

Cons:

Pages seems OK but I've been using Word and Google Docs for a while now so I cant see anything In pages that would want me to stop using what I'm used to. It would have to be amazing to get me to swap.

Solid alternative to Word

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: I have been using Pages ever since I got my first Mac computer, I was very satisfied with it as it is free and very easy to use and it is a free alternative to those who cannot invest in a yearly subscription but already have a Mac

Pros:

- Can open and most importantly edit Word documents without the need to purchase a subscription. - Free to use on MacOS and iOS - Stylish templates

Cons:

- Sometimes when opening Word documents, certain elements might disappear or be displayed oddly requiring the users to tweak the Pages document. - If you ever need to send a documents, directly sending a Pages document to someone can be risky if they open it on Word. I would recommend sending your Pages document as a PDF or trying to view how it looks on Word before sending it for something important like customers or University work. - Wish it was also available on iCloud.com for non Mac users.
