Pages for Mac review

Word processing is important for many tasks, and Apple developers are well aware of this. That's why they created the Pages app, which is part of the iWork suite along with Numbers and Keynote. Pages is a word processing application. It’s a bit like Word for Windows or the Google Docs cloud service, but its functionality is tailored for iOS devices.

We’ll tell you more about whether Apple managed to keep the bar of quality, what the Pages application is capable of and what features it has.

Interface and working with documents

Documents for working in the Pages app are displayed as a special grid. You can create folders and fill them with documents, just like in the apps on your home screen. You can also add documents to Pages from applications such as iTunes, iDisk, and WebDAV.

Working with multimedia

Pages can work not only with text, but it also gives the user the ability to work with tables, graphs, forms, and other media objects. When inserting such objects, you can scale their size and move them within the document, and they are also quite easy to edit.

Collaboration mode

The Pages app allows you to collaborate while working on documents. The users you invite can see the changes you make, and you can choose who can edit the document and who can only view it. Google Docs has roughly the same technology.

What's new in the latest update

At the end of June, Apple released updates for Pages. Among the list, two global updates can be highlighted:

  • new templates for event invitations and student certificates;

  • a merge function to quickly create personalized letters, cards, and envelopes for multiple recipients.

Conclusions

In summary, we can say that Pages, although not without some minor flaws, is still a rather convenient and multifunctional application. It is designed in the Apple tradition and maintains a high-quality bar.
