What's New in Version 5.6.2
This update contains stability improvements and bug fixes.
My Biggest Apple Dissapointment
It is not often that Apple dissapoints. This is one of the biggest dissapointments for me.
iWork 09 is great. I have no idea what the business team or whoever the decision maker was thinking when they surmised that it would be more successful stripping all the useful features and turning Pages into a very simple (feature-less - there is NO positivity in this context for the word simple) basic word processor.
Duplicating pages from the side panel is one of my most used features which has been removed. WHY! Just read the other reviews, there are so many functionalities that have been stripped. I still use iWork 09 which now has sharing bugs because it is no longer supported and which gets plagued when I use heavy documents. It is FAR better than the new pages. Once Pages 09 becomes too cumbersome to keep using I guess my only option is to change to Microsoft Word. What a shame.
Please fix this Apple, it has been 3 years and you have still not done anything to restore Pages to even a small segment of it's former glory. The tagline is “Pages - the last word in word processing”. Really? I truly hope it’s not your last words in word processing because it is really looking like it.
Why try and actually make something good? Nobody notices any more.
I’ve previously listed the exceptionally bad design, and missing features that never made it from Pages ’09, and there is not a week I don’t stumble on another badly implemented detail or gotcha.
This is like all the designer burgers that are in vogue. Easy to make, same old rubbish as the rest but talked up as if they are better than they really are. Schmoozes the average Joe who doesn’t know any better but wants to feel like he is getting something better and isn’t.
Almost 3 years since this was launched as the disatrous replacement for what was a remarkable suite of software. It obviously is only getting the occassional tweak between other more pressing jobs, but is really going nowhere.
Pages; a great and very useful App
I am amazed by the huge amount of negative comments about Pages, I personally find Pages a highly useful, if not invaluable, app, I prefer Pages over Microsoft Word as I find it not only easier to use but more creative too, Apple did an amazing job with Pages and if it didn’t come bundled with my Mac I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase it, its worth every cent.
