What's New in Version 5.5.3
This update contains stability improvements and bug fixes.
Pages is simply the finest word processor/page layout app going
It always puzzles me why some people dislike Pages. It’s the simplest, easiest, fastest, most reliable, most complete & versatile word processor & page layout app there is. I’ve tried them all, from Nissus to InDesign & everything in between. Admittedly, the previous version was rather slow, but the current version in Yosemite has been streamlined & optimized & is blazing fast. It does literally everything & does it with the simplest, best-designed user interface around.
Most of the the complaints seem to center around the Cloud. The Cloud is a pain in the neck, period. First of all, do you really feel comfortable storing your data on someone else’s server in god-knows-where, especially today when there is no such thing as internet security? I don’t. Sooner or later some hacker from China or Russia or North Korea will hack into that system & your files will be stolen (if they haven’t already), along with your personal info, etc. If they can penetrate the Pentagon, major Wall St. banks & the stock exchange, they can penetrate anything. Digital security or privacy is a myth and always has been.
For a mere $20, Pages is the best thing going. I use it for everything because it always works. Q.E.D.
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.
irritating app that seems helpful at first
Was very excited to get the new version of Pages as I’d been using an older one for the last three years. I actually bought my Mac because I felt bad for using my Girlfriend’s all the time. The MAIN thing I use this app for is business and only today with a week left in my deadline I’ve found that this new version of Pages has removed some of the functions that made it so useful in the first place. You CANNOT connect Text Boxes. Take a moment to let that sink in. This is a very basic function for anyone who wants to span some of their writing over multiple pages. Yes, your pages will connect. Yes this is a decent word-processer. Yes, there are nice fonts, and a little bit of room for small time design. But it’s simply not the caliber of program it used to be and if you’re putting something together like a newsletter, brochure, chapbook, or playbill, or any other multipage document with text and images - this is not the application for you.
I now must go grovel back to my GF to borrow her OLDER computer to do my work.
