What's New in Version 5.5.3
This update contains stability improvements and bug fixes.
What a disaster!
Oh how I wish I hadn’t just assumed that Apple products would continue to offer what l originally got Apple products for… superior user-friendliness. Oh how I wish I’d read reviews before I upgraded to this latest version of Pages. Bad, BAD BBBBBAAAADDD decision to just go ahead and do it. I use Pages for a 12-16 page newsletter every month. The newsletter is a running document that flows from page to page, although there are some interruptions for examples, ads, sidebars, etc. The loss of textbox linking alone is enough to drop this product to just one star. I agree with many others who speculate that this is a decision by Apple to abandon what used to be its biggest benefit. Simplicity and ease-of-use. Why use this program anymore? Why use an Apple computer anymore? Why pay extra for Apple products, if all they’re bringing to the table is aesthetics? I know many graphic designers who have abandoned their Macs. I’ve never been able to figure out why. But at this point, I’m going to have to consider it. And I’ve used NOTHING but Macs since the Mac Plus in 1986. I just can’t take this anymore. What a terrible thing Apple has done to Pages and to us.
Solid App & iOS Compatibility
A recent update to Pages saw a number of features removed most likely so that the OS X & iOS apps are compatible with each other. Otherwise, the iOS app would be little more than a viewer app with little or no functionality. Recent updates to both apps have brought both new & returning features as Apple works out how features can be functional on both platforms. Pages is a good word processor, while it is not a feature competitor to Microsoft Word, it offers practical features that users will use. The UI remains simple to use by avoiding cramming lots of rarely used or never used features. As a user of both Pages & Word, my preference for Pages is in how easy it is to build a professional document. Apple understands the need to support a basic line of apps for OS X & fulfills that need with apps that are approachable by most users. This is accomplished through an uncomplicated UI, compatibility with iOS & low software cost.
Remember how Microsoft would “innovate for us” so you didn’t have to bother? WIth the latest Pages update, Apple seems to be challenging MS for that contemptible mantle. V4 (Pages‘09) users beware, surely someday you won’t be able to run Pages’09, or perhaps upgrade your extensive collection of ’09 docs to current Pages, except on old hardware and software. V5 users beware, this is word doc lite and Apple is deaf to years of sustained intense commentary from its deep user base. (The list of crippled or expunged ’09 features is long, as well as features never provided in ’09. You can find many examples in the other negative reviews, or search the net.) This loss of functionality and failure to provide advanced features is a marketing decision. And given Apple's deaf ear to their user base, how can you avoid concluding that they don’t seem to care whatsoever that your productivity suffers for it.
Sadly, you have only one choice, abandon Pages for serious document preparation, use MS Word or some other app. For the most part, Pages is relegated to frilly stuff.
