Three steps back
I'm a published playwright and novelist who writes exclusively on iPad. And If Apple reads this, take note: Putting italics in a drop down is absurd. The whole point behind having touch and type at your fingertips is to make it easier! Please, put bold and italics back on the toolbar and not a drop down. Thank you!
Also, CURRENT BUG: When you misspell a word it'll flag it in red as it's supposed to. But go ahead and highlight it. What do you find now with this new update? All the basic edit functions for a selected word, as well as define. BUT, no corrected spelling options pop up. And before you ask, YES my spell check is active. Nothing has changed other on my settings, and nothing is new on this iPad aside from this app's update. Please address these, it's making my job difficult.
Aside from that, I love writing in Pages, and prefer it to Word. If they ever make Scrivener for iPad I'll jump ship, because that app's still the best. But until then, if you get these bugs worked out of this update, I'll continue to be a loyal user. Thanks!
I've seen reviews of new ipad mini's that show they have several times the processing power, so I completely understand my ancient (barely 3 year old) original ipad mini not supporting fancy new features like "picture in picture" or split screen. But to just drop support for something as basic as word processing doesn't seem acceptable to me. It is such a basic task, I don't even understand how it could require so much power. It makes me consider buying a new ipad because I don't have a choice, but I immediately think about how soon they will drop support for the new ones, especially considering the mini 4 is already using the year old air 2 processor. I always argue with friends that spending the extra money on Apple stuff is worth it because it will last so much longer, and it does, but if they are going to make new software that just isn't compatible with it anymore, what is the point of paying extra for the fancy Apple gear?
What happened to Apple? With the iPad Pro being hyped as a viable replacement for a laptop, why can't Apple produce a decent word-processing app? I like Pages on my MacBook, but on the iPad:
(1) The interface is completely different. (In fact the interface for everything on the iPad is different: users must learn two different interfaces for everything.)
(2) No thesaurus? Are you kidding me? Does Apple really expect people to write on this like a laptop without a built-in thesaurus feature?
(3) Lots of little glitches and inconveniences: endless load times, help button simply doesn't display tips for all the buttons, and, weirdly, if you have ever added another language in keyboard controls, you will never be able to remove pop-up bilingual dictionaries under 'define'—even if you have removed the language in controls. Just all-around clunky and poorly thought-out!
