Editors' review

Pages brings the familiar functions and interface of the Mac's word processing program to your iOS device in a smooth-functioning app. You can do just about anything through this app that you can do on your computer, and the convenience of the mobile program will only help you increase your productivity.

Pros

Lots of templates: No matter what type of document you want to create, you'll likely find a template for it in this program. Options include everything from Term Paper to Business Resume, grouped into categories to facilitate finding what you want quickly. You can even use templates to create different types of envelopes and business cards.

iCloud integration: You can also link this app to your iCloud account, which makes it possible to search for and open documents that you've created someplace else and then saved to the cloud. That means you can start a document in one place and finish it elsewhere without worrying about messing up the formatting.

Cons

No straight saving: You can't save your work as you go in this program without closing the document you're working on and then opening it up again. Documents automatically save when you tap Done, but if you're working on something for a long time, and then the app or your device crashes, you're likely to lose a substantial portion of your work.

Bottom Line

Pages is great to have on your iOS device, especially if you work with the program a lot already on your Mac and want to have access to your documents on your iPhone or iPad. The templates are great, and the iCloud integration vastly increases the usefulness of the program by giving you immediate access to anything you save there on any device.

    "Great Product by Apple but missing some features"

    July 20, 2011   |   By sonofthunder311

    Version: Pages 1.3.1

    Pros

    Able to type up documents on your mobile device (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad).
    Can edit Pages '09, Microsoft Word, and plain text files. You can also export as a Pages Document, Microsoft Word Document, and a PDF file.

    Cons

    Doesn't have a landscape keyboard so you have to type on a portrait keyboard on iPod/iPhone.
    Doesn't have as many features as on the computer with Microsoft Word and Pages.

    Summary

    I would say it is a great app to purchase and is definitely worth the $9.99. I am a student and it is great to be able to type up reports and essays on the go. The only thing I don't like about it is that you can't turn your iPod Touch/iPhone sideways to use the landscape keyboard.

    "Needs multi-language spell check"

    June 04, 2011   |   By Appledogx

    Version: Pages 1.3.1

    Pros

    Does most of what you could commonly want to do in a word processor or light page layout program. Brilliantly implemented interface. Even easy on an iPhone.

    Cons

    Won't check spelling using the keyboard language, but instead uses the system language. If you write it multiple languages, this is a bug, not a feature. Needs landscape mode. Won't save to Dropbox.

    Summary

    Despite a few shortcomings, this is a MUST have app if you want to do some real work on the iPhone. There are a few other word processors that work on it, but this one won't leave you feeling that there must be something better out there to get the job done.

    "A must for productivity"

    December 26, 2010   |   By J.G.

    Version: Pages 1.2

    Pros

    This is an application brings most of the utility of the Pages word processor for the Mac to the iPad. Anyone preparing documents ranging from letters to manuscripts to complex projects will find Pages useful.

    Cons

    There are still issues with getting content out of Pages and into other programs easily. Unless you have one of a few H-P and Epson printers with compatible apps, you will not be able to print directly from Pages for iPad.

    Summary

    If you are ready to spring for one of the higher priced consumer apps in the App Store, the $10 Pages should be your first.

    "Totally Nice!!"

    August 11, 2010   |   By jackies35

    Version: Pages for iPad 1.1

    Pros

    I love how quick it is for me to create cards, flyers, and other projects on the go!
    I love the templates that cut tons of hours for me creating from scratch!
    I will recommend this download to all my students and seniors in my computer class!

    Cons

    No way to print unless I email it to my laptop (to myself). Need a printing software with out

    Summary

    I love that I am able to log on and connect very fast to the internet. I have the macbook pro, but it could be heavy at time. So, this is my new walk around computer.

    "Excellent Application for the iPad"

    April 06, 2010   |   By Walt-AZ

    Version: Pages for iPad 1.0

    Pros

    Exceeded my expectations... Easy to learn, navigate and format a word compatible document in a very short time.

    Cons

    Obviously, lack of printing at this time is an issue. Still trying to figure out how to import MS-Word formatted documents and export back without loosing some of the layouts

    Summary

    Bottom-line - it's a perfect application to use when you are not using your laptop with full-functionining MS-Word app
