Pages 6.0.5-Apple's answer to MS Word

There are few examples of Apple software that are inferior to Microsoft products but it has to be said, Microsoft Word still has the edge on Pages . However, with the release of Mavericks, Apple has brought it even closer to Word with a slick new interface, many new templates and more powerful editing tools.

Excellent graphic design features
Pages is a fantastic word processing application that's slowly winning hearts. Although it can take some getting used to if you've used Word all your life, once you get the grip of it it is easy to use, relatively inexpensive (it can now be purchased separately or comes as part of the iWork suite) and as expected from an Apple product, the graphic design features are second to none.

Lacks some essential features
Unfortunately, Pages still lacks basics such as a grammar checker although the truth is that the grammar checker in Word is rarely useful anyway only offering subtle changes that don't really make much difference to the meaning of a phrase or sentence. Where it certainly excels over Word is for graphics - many users prefer it for designing posters, adding tables and just about anything where graphics are concerned.

Not quite Word but getting there
It may not quite be up to MS Word but Pages is slowly getting there and future releases will surely see it address the few issues that remain to make it a truly great word processor.
