Apple Pages for iPad Review
Intro: Pages for iPad is one part of the iWork office suite for iPad. Along with the Numbers spreadsheet and Keynote presentation apps, the iWork Pages word processor is designed to turn the iPad into an indispensable tool for casual users and business professionals alike...
Final words: Pages for the iPad promises to deliver many people from their laptop-toting days, and in large part I believe the program succeeds in that goal. This is especially true when combined with a Bluetooth keyboard! It has many of the basic components that people expect from a word processor, such as the ability to change fonts, including color, size, and style, insert and manipulate photos, tables, and graphs, and it also includes a spell checker. Will it do absolutely everything that Microsoft Word can do? Of course not; that's to be understood when you're comparing a $9.99 app with a fully-featured desktop application. But for the vast majority of casual users, as well as many business users, iPad Pages will do everything you need in an elegant, simplified manner.

Pages Video Review
More Reviews on 'Pages'
Intro: What’s the biggest news about the recent update to Pages, Apple’s word processing and page layout application for you iOS device? It’s that the app has gotten quite small. While Apple has tweaked the app so that it’s a bit easier to share files and change fonts, the biggest change to Pages is that it now works on your iPhone and iPod touch in addition to your iPad...
Final words: Pages 1.4 is an amazing word processing and page layout application made more amazing when you realize that all of this power is packed into a device that can fit inside your pocket. While it needs true file syncing to make it truly great, as a standalone application for your favorite iOS device, Pages is a very impressive app.
Pages for iPad In-Depth Review
Intro: Apple’s iPad is a great device for watching movies and TV shows, listening to music and playing games; and thanks to apps like Pages, it works great as a content creation device, too. Pages for the iPad is a slimmed down version of Apple’s word processor and page layout application, and it works surprisingly well for on-the-go document creation and editing...
Final words: Pages for the iPad is a surprisingly capable word processor that could be far more feature-limited than it is thanks to its touch-based interface. The lack of built-in printing support, no support for adding new fonts, and the sometimes available tool bar may put off some users, but it shouldn’t. The app works great for on the go writing and layout, and its ability to import Word files makes it a perfectly capable business tool, too. In fact, Pages for the iPad is capable enough that I wrote this review with it.
IWork Pages for iPad Review: Great Choice!
Intro: I am not generally a Mac person. My experience with the desktop version of Apple’s iWork is limited to about 5 minutes. So my review of Pages, the iWork app for the iPad, is based primarily on how it stands up to the word processor that I use, quite literally, everyday: Microsoft Word. And even though Pages for iPad could never match the sheer size and depth of that singular and genre-defining program, Pages is a phenomenal tool for the iPad...
Final words: Overall, Apple did a wise thing by launching the iPad with such a well designed and full featured productivity app. It certainly outclasses any third party word processing app currently in the App Store. While it has some limitations versus a desktop program, and its file importing/exporting is practically Neolithic, neither of these ruins its core user experience, it’s still worth the price of admission for most users.
Pages for iPad Review
Intro: I have a love-hate relationship with Apple’s new Pages word processor for the iPad. On the one hand, it’s absolutely beautiful to look at and to work with. On the other, even this latest version is missing some basic requirements of any word processor. It’s hard to fathom why they were left out. Either way, at $9.99 it’s still worth purchasing, if not for the app as it exists today then for what functionality will inevitably be added in the future. And since an update was just issued (not correcting every problem with the app, but at least some), it’s clear Apple intends to continue development of Pages for the foreseeable future...
Final words: Finally, if you purchase Pages (and if you intend to use your iPad to get any work done, I suggest you do buy it) I highly recommend that you do not ignore the introduction/tutorial that initially opens at the start of the app. It’s a short document, maybe even too short, but it does allow you to learn how to approach this word processor, and it does so in a very hands-on way. It’s not that Pages is so different it’s impossible to figure out on your own, but the interactive tutorial does save time when you really need to get work done. And that’s really what Pages is all about.
Quick Review: Pages for iPad
Intro: Having a virtually full-fledged word processor like Apple’s Pages iWork app on the iPad is a big deal. There has been a lot of discussion, however, about how Pages would work on the iPad. How do I transfer/ sync documents? How will my formatting be effected?...
Final words: This app is not entirely made from unicorn tears however. I did encounter issues with Pages crashing and being sluggish at times, regardless of the document size. I can easily cut Apple slack on this since it is a 1.0 product. I have confidence Apple will release updates for stability and functionality just like its desktop big brother. Still, don’t let these little nuances dissuade you; make no mistake that this is an unparalleled best-in-class app from the user interface to it’s core functionality.
App Review: Pages for iPad
Intro: If you just bought an iPad 2, you are probably still looking for apps to download. Pages should be on every iPad owner’s list. Pages is an extremely powerful word processing application. It can do almost anything that the desktop version can do. It’s easy to use- anyone who has ever used Microsoft Word can pick it up in a few minutes. You can enter text and format however you want...
Final words: If you want to be productive on your iPad, Pages is a killer app.
Apple Pages (iPad) review
Intro: Just like on the Mac, Pages for the iPad is a mix of straight word processor and desktop-publishing package. Apple's probably right that, unlike the writers at MacFormat, most people don't think of a word processor as a way of simply belting some unformatted text into a computer, but instead like to tinker with layout, fonts, images and more...
Final words: If you're content to spend most of your time in Pages on the iPad, rarely working on the file on your Mac, and are happy to treat your work as DTP projects rather than word processing documents, Pages can be forgiven.
