Apple Pages for Mac lets you create, edit, and share documents. It can open files created in Word and other word processing programs as well. It offers most of the features you'd expect to find in a program of this kind, and its interface makes all tools conveniently accessible with just a few clicks.
Tool panels: Click either the Format or Document icons to open a panel that displays options for table styles, headers and footers, spacing, font, paragraph alignment, and much more. Having these tools handy is a real time-saver.
Templates: No matter what type of document you want to create, you'll likely find the perfect template in this program. There are over 60 available, and they're broken down into categories like Reports, Cards, Flyers and Posters, Envelopes, Letters, and more for quick searching.
Crashing issues: This app crashes all too often, although the crashing doesn't generally result in the loss of any work. The issue mostly arises when exporting a document to Word format.
Limited page views: There is no way to view pages side by side in this version of the app. While this may not be an issue for many users, anyone who prefers working with this arrangement or who deals with creating two-page layouts may find it frustrating.
Apple Pages for Mac is a decent word processing program. But it does lack certain features that many users will miss, and its instability is also an issue. The interface is clear and convenient, however, and the large number of templates can help you create a professional-looking document.
