The PAGES app I downloaded for this iPad isn't worth much. There are basically no useful commands. I have it on Macbook and it is very good with every thing needed to compose, edit, delete etc, etc, etc. Now I know why the one I downloaded (the only one available on APPLE APP) is free. It's not worth anything.
Utterly devoid of even a sliver of value
Kaiser Soze is my nickname but they say someone else is using it. on 7/20/2017
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.
Clean, simple, essential- one bother.
Reldnahc98 on 7/18/2017
Title says what I think about this app. It's very easy to use and should really be the only typing app you need. The only bug that bothers me is when you title a folder. I'd prefer for a colon to be in the name but whenever I press the colon, it becomes a hyphen. I've no clue why it happens but it's hindering my organizational OCD. Fix that and it'll be perfect.
Can't access older files.
The browser is better. on 7/18/2017
After returning to look into some old documents I kept, for memories sake, I realized that most of my "pages" were inaccessible. It would give me an error message asking me to update pages. The update, of course, doesn't exist. This is the latest version. Until I get this fixed, old song drafts, story ideas, and other misc things are as good as lost. People, just use word. Or even drive. Not worth the hassle.
Won't open
Lucidlady731 on 7/16/2017
Since the last update I'm unable to open the app.
Amazing!!
Leslye 123 on 7/15/2017
Love it!! Great features!!
Closes without warning
Jickiann52183 on 7/15/2017
On my iPhone the app closes every time I scroll to another page. The app is unusable in my phone. Frustrating!!!
Literally worthless
Ngagescott on 7/11/2017
Too many things I can't do makes this and my iPad worthless for business.
Keeps crashing very disappointing
seamew on 7/11/2017
It's not like this software is in Beta or even an early version. I've re-installed the app several times on my IPad Pro 10.5. This should not happen with apple software period. I'm going to back to the office suite.
Add Arabic font please
Fix app crashing on 7/10/2017
Please add Arabic font
Flawed Integration
Tilden Thorne on 7/10/2017
First let me say that I am a huge fan of the desktop version of this app. That known, the iOS version is of little use. One of the largest issues I found was the iOS app regularly alters the layout of works made on the desktop version. This renders all interoperability moot. While working on a book manuscript in the hardcover 6x9 format that is flawless on the desktop, each time I attempted to open the same document in the iOS version I was greeted with a radically rearranged layout. The effect is so severe that I cannot even begin to sort it out, thus the iOS app is useless. For a company so devoted to detail, this is an odd and unacceptable issue. If desktop to iOS interoperability is a perceived selling point, such a feature should function as advertised. Add to this things like the difficulty of adding fonts and the fact you cannot create documents of all format sizes directly from iOS continue to diminish the apps worth. Apple, please get your apps such as this closer to 1:1 code copies of their desktop relatives. Until you do so, these apps will be more toys of novelty then engines of creative production. Honestly, I expect more from Apple then this.
Good For When Ur Dad Says Shut up
Dylanator on 7/10/2017
This App is useful when ur writing notes or whatever
Keyboard lag in Pages makes app unusable
Tracey Brookes on 7/10/2017
I used to use pages for all my document writing needs. Since upgrading the IOS of my ipad 3, the keyboard is getting stuck. This is occurring particularly bad in pages using the ipad keyboard but there is also a lag when using my bluetooth keyboard. It will delete extra spaces when I backspace although I only pushed the backspace key once. Forums say there is no patch for this. I am on the latest version of app. Have had to move to google docs for work.
Frustrating
sumner//78 on 7/8/2017
Even with autocorrect off, it won't let me type the words I want and instead litters the sentences and paragraphs with extra words and typos. The pace of writing with this app is so frustratingly slow as it hesitates after every letter, number, and space selected.
What happened?!!!
mjtopp on 7/5/2017
Not sure when it updated, but I can't find all my documents on my phone or iPad. Why do we have to go into iCloud or some other place to search for it? When I do, nothing comes up! Please fix!!!
Mad
MrPeteairbrushman on 7/5/2017
This morning I Open pages and all my notes that I have created over the past year are gone. They are not in iTunes they're not anywhere. What is it with this stinking program. I should've used my plane notes program. Don't trust this program with important notes
Doesn't support previous versions & docs gone
nmarie73 on 7/1/2017
I have used this for over a year now and had several documents on this app. After a period of time I could not open them since they were created in a 'previously unsupported version.' Keep in mind I never intended to update the app if I was not going to have access to docs already created. Now all but 5 documents disappeared and I still can't open a number of the ones remaining. Don't create anything in here you want to save long term without saving it somewhere else as well.
Crash
2ndprimetme on 6/30/2017
Crashes at launch
It's good
SLAY🔥🔥 on 6/28/2017
It's a good app but the only thing is they should make a forgot password just in case you actually forget it.
Does not download from iCloud
NapoleonIV on 6/26/2017
Since this update pages for iOS no longer reliably downloads and syncs documents from iCloud, if at all. I am running the newest software on relatively up-to-date hardware. This should not be happening. Furthermore, in order for pages to be truly functional, there needs to be a tab key on the keyboard, it needs to support vertical alignment, and non-contiguous text selection.
Easy to Use
DreaanBates on 6/26/2017
I love this app once I figured out all the cool options available. I created an awesome Real Estate flyer. I'm trying to create another but now the app keeps crashing . Please fix this? I need this flyer done by tomorrow !!!!!
Can I give it no stars
Lynncbs on 6/25/2017
It won't update. Tried over and over
Fantastic App
gutsavo on 6/25/2017
Love working with this beautiful product---great work, Apple! Keep up the great work!
Where did it go
Praism777 on 6/24/2017
What happened to the feature where you could tap one time and highlight a word - Tap twice and highlight a sentence - Tap three times and highlight a paragraph? That was a very important feature to me! If you removed it for the sake of improvement then you went backwards instead of forward. Otherwise I do love the app. It's all I use for word processing.
Beautiful but has updating issues
screenfreeze! on 6/22/2017
Absolutely beautiful functions, a privilege to use! My iPad Pro 2016 keeps telling me that the app is so large that it cannot upate it without using WiFi. Even attached to WiFi, it has difficulty updating. So far, I have not been able to use Pages for the last four months because it cannot update. Sad : (
Great App
almond_bear on 6/20/2017
Cool
Will not open
McWett on 6/19/2017
It will no longer open on my iPhone.
No easy way to format
dundudunndun on 6/19/2017
I would prefer if there was a way to see formatting options at the bottom of the screen or a way to pin it as visible when using a bluetooth keyboard, but there is not an easy way to see it except for selecting a block of text, and THEN clicking the format brush. It just doesn't seem intuitive for keyboard users.
This is better
WontShutUp on 6/19/2017
I don't use it much. But at least the update is helpful.
Would like to see.
Shdld05 on 6/18/2017
This is a very good app. Would love to see some color options for text when using a blank page set up. Updating this review: Thanks for the colors options for text on blank pages. Is very handy in what I do with this app. I am a long time Mac user and miss a couple of features in Appleworks. Especially when doing my business cards. Since I operate two small business I use this often. When I have the completed the card I wish there was a way to put a box around the set up and copy and paste it to the next card. I miss this feature a great deal. One of my cards I update frequently and it would be a great help to have this feature like it was in the draw program of Appleworks. Hope to see this in the feature.
The struggle continues
pitchgold on 6/18/2017
I am a writer And i have to be off line a lot. I hate Word. Google Docs is nearly impossible to use for any sort of master file over 100 pages. And so Ive come to work mostly on Pages. At least up until recently... Pages now crashes every time i try to open the app on my MacBook Pro. Just on the Pro. Its fine on the iMac and still as crappy as ever but functioning on the iPhone. But my Macbook, about thirty seconds after i open it, it crashes and quits. In browser still works--but then i cant work off line, so now i have to find a new platform that can adequately house literally a novels worth and is still pleasant to operate.
What is this space rule?
Sand-64 on 6/18/2017
Ok.
Turning Pages
forcing9 on 6/18/2017
Pages has become a piece of art within my writings. Pages has converted my old writings into a visual masterpiece with a new look to impress not only myself but also my readers. My patrons are turning pages more rapidly than my mind can imagine my short stories. Thanks Apple. James Clayton

Reacher1217 on 6/16/2017
Since the recent update the icon shows "installing". I can't open it or delete it to try to re-install
Very useful
Sayde5555 on 6/16/2017
I really like this app for creating holiday menus and documents but I really wish there was a recipe template as an option.
New update is crashing on my iPad!!! 😞
The Mermaid on 6/16/2017
I use this for work daily and this new update is crashing my iPad 2. Miserable!
The best just keeps getting better
The real BigJim on 6/15/2017
While that other suite just keeps getting more bloated and a waste! It has been a great application for writing all of my papers and other assignments for school! The additional of the equation editor allows me to do even more with the iPad version of Pages!
Lag issues improved, font styling now worse
Benton E. on 6/15/2017
Pages used to have terrible speed/lag issues. These are now nicely remedied. Now, however, font styling options (bold, Italics, etc.) are hideously slow to use. One must press not one, but two small, unresponsive buttons to change styles. To add insult to frustration, there's obviously room in the menu bar to add the two additional buttons required to fix this issue. For someone who switches between styles frequently, as I do, you will be infuriated.
Have to keep deleting and reinstalling Pages on iPad Air Bug Fixed in Version 3.2
Wokibew on 6/14/2017
Dear Pages or iWork Development Team, Thanks for fixing the having to keep deleting and reinstalling Pages 3.1 or 3.1.1 on my iPad Air every time that I switched out of it bug in the version 3.2 release of Pages for iOS.
Works great
Fluffyhams on 6/14/2017
Keeps my documents on the cloud but I always make a copy to my idrive ^__^
iOS 7 causes snafu
Ret Rev on 6/14/2017
UPDATE: this issue has been fixed and it works fine. I sometimes switch to Int'l keyboard to use Korean. Since iOS 7 update, the letter spacing is messed up. Sometimes a syllable needs the letters/symbols stacked 3 high. Now pages won't do that anymore.
Crappy Onscreen Keyboard
Dave4400 on 6/14/2017
I had the iPad Air, then got the 12.9 Pro. The keyboard on the 12.9 onscreen keyboard for Pages was much improved, and had a tab key. I just "upgraded" to the new iPad Pro 10.5 and the onscreen keyboard is the old version with no tab key. I've spent two hours with Apple support and so far they don't seem to have an explanation. I can't believe they can't explain why buying a new iPad for a thousand bucks should be a downgrade.
lag and keeps changing my formatting
Madman man k? on 6/14/2017
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!
Best word processor
-Huss- on 6/14/2017
Pages been improving fast lately, been using Pages for over 7 years now and it's superior, easier and more elegant than Word or the dull basic google docs or any other app. And with those additional features and improvements it keep getting better and better. Please add better tools to creat and update table of contents, tables and figures. Thank you
Great start but now ghost in the machine.
Nikeritik on 6/13/2017
From its inception until April 2017 a great app. I considered it to be absolutely and entirely fundamental for creating documents. Fantastic for producing newsletters, reports, flyers, etc. Super concept! However, from mid-May on, the app began producing duplicates on its own, and sometimes triplicates, of the roughly 100+ docs I had on my device and in iCloud. After opening the app one particular day, half had simply disappeared! What happened!?!?? Searched for 2 hours in an attempt to retrieve them, to no avail. Then the app begins crashing. Maybe a dozen times. A week of attempts to open it without crashing, when finally I could check, and what do you know, everything is gone except 25 docs. :~€. aaaagggghhhhh!!!!! Pain. And anger! My life has been shortened by 3 years. If you can get the app to work and to actually store your documents, God bless you. You must be a programmer for Apple.
No more tap selection?!!
RKR7 on 6/13/2017
UPDATE: Three updates since the bad one and a major feature has yet to be fixed. Come on people. I'm not the only one frustrated with this. This update is full of bugs and has removed basic, but essential, features that make using it efficient. Like tap selection of words and paragraphs. Also some style issues from what I found and more. Working on it today was agonizingly slow and frustrating. Get on it guys...fix it or recall it till u can get it right please. Not at all up to standards.
Idk
Briggy_bae on 6/13/2017
I don't like writing anyways so....yeahhh and IG five stars Idk😂😂
A Favorite
Pelagius the Builder on 6/13/2017
Like all Apple products, Pages is easy to learn and to use in practical application.
Accessibility symbol updated in iOS emoji but not this?
jollygiraffe1 on 6/13/2017
Disappointing to see that Apple updated the accessibility wheelchair symbol in iOS ♿️ but kept the old one in this recent pages update.
A great app and Word replacement
rmaximo23 on 6/13/2017
Edited June 13, 2017 for version 3.2 Apple has done a *fantastic* job with Pages 3.2, and has fixed (at least in iOS) my biggest problem with the app: how it handled quotes (see original review below). This app is now freaking great, and will likely replace Word for all my needs on iOS. Next step should be support for Pencil! Original review: This is a good writing app. If I were on a budget and couldn't afford an Office 365 subscription, this would be a fine Word processor replacement. The templates are great, the performance is overall good, and it works really well with the macOS version. But it could be great. The font selection is not as extensive as on Microsoft Word. And I hate how Pages defaults to using "straight quotes" instead of "smart" or typographical curly quotes. You need to memorize a special keyboard shortcut for typographical quotes which are used by writers and students almost universally in academic papers. It's a small annoyance, but just one more reason why Word for iPad is still better. But this app has so much potential. Apple Pencil support would be incredible. More fonts would be great too. Better Word compatibility would be great. I want this to be my only writing app, but it's just not there yet. But I'm willing to continue giving it some time.
