Step 1 of 7: Intro
Word processing software doesn’t have to be dull and boring – something that Pages proves every time you launch it. This powerful app allows you to quickly and easily produce conventional word processing documents, but it also has a hidden arsenal of tools for helping you become more creative.
There’s a collection of Apple-designed templates that kick-start the creative process, including everything from letters and reports through to flyers, cards and posters. Documents can be customised to suit your requirements, or you can simply start from scratch and call upon the collection of fonts, shapes and multiple formatting options as you need them. There are tools for writing and editing text, along with a sophisticated array of layout and design options, including 3D bar and pie charts.
When you’re finished with the production process, Pages allows you to export the finished item in formats such as Word documents or PDFs. Work can also be shared with ease and printed using AirPrint, meaning the app provides you with a powerful one-stop creativity shop on your mobile device.
