Why so far behind MS Word?
The iPad version of Pages is very intuitive, yet one of the main features does not work - Spell Check. Most everything else is smooth and enjoyable to use, but I find myself having to copy my work over to a virtual version of MS Word like CloudOn to do spell check. This is not cool Apple. When will we get Office (at least Word), or when will Spell Check be robust enough to use?
I am curious, if the spell check or a grammar check like MS Word would make the app download size too big, then perhaps an internet enable feature could be worked in (you know like Siri), where the app would call to your servers in Cupertino and run a real-time spell/grammar check. People want this feature, and those who use Apple products know they're getting quality high end product and features. Please keep us happy. I hate carrying around my old PC (it's heavy) - the iPad does most everything I need to do my work. Minimalism is key peace of mind and kindness to the soul. :)
Suggestion noted on Apple Apps forum not working...
Tap in the toolbar, and then tap Settings.
Slide Check Spelling to ON.
Misspelled words in your document are underlined in red. In many cases, Pages can suggest an alternative spelling.
I have loved Pages. I have loved creating docs on my iPad or on my MacBook and finding them in both places through iCloud. And I generally find that the app is easy to use and it does all I need it to do.
Clearly we are going through some serious growing pains, Apple. Pages is now slow (to open and respond to most every command). It is quirky and periodically it just closes. All of that is bad enough for me to give it 2 stars. It would get only one if I didn't used to like it so much.
But now, what's with this "can't open a document until you update..." (either Pages or my operating system software)
I would just like to look at, maybe edit, one of my documents. But no, I must update AGAIN. And I can't right now.
Do you have any idea how slow the internet becomes when snow just keeps falling outside and the winds are 30 mph? Do you have any idea how impossible it becomes to download an update when the internet slows so?
Wish I could work on Pages....
One of the principal reasons I bought the iPad was to enable me to write "on-the-road" and transfer the updates to my iMac. This worked fine until the latest update by e mailing the document back and forth.
Now gmail interprets the new .zip format as a security risk and the email is rejected. Other than working via the cloud Apple has not solved the problem. As another reviewer noted the old Pages is not compatible with the new Pages. I constantly get messages re: updating. Luckily I have been afraid I would lose years of work if I went into the death loop. I still do not know how to convert Pages 4.0 to 5.0.
The final insult is when I tried to open Pages (on the iPad) and the list of features appeared telling me how great Pages is. The only trouble was the message could not be closed (the "continue" button didn't work).
