I told myself that I wouldn't purchase pages until they added a landscape mode, and finally they did. But upon reading a couple reviews, some people said that pages doesn't work well with iCloud... meaning that if I were to make a change on a document on my mac then it wouldn't change on my iPhone and vice versa. This would lead to multiple identical documents with different changes.

So for the users of pages, can this be confirmed and/or corrected?

Thanks

Whatever I'll call apple..mediocre responses

I have no experience with it myself, but I know my friend uses his iPod/iphone/macbook and changes files on all of these using pages/icloud and he has never complained of any problems.

In case you needed additional confirmation, you cannot sync pages on iOS devices with pages on Mac. Works fine between my iPad and iPhone though. As you pointed out, mountain lion should complete the loop with macs.

Upon review of Mountain Lions features, I realized that Mountain Lion is indeed the fix to this problem by having better iCloud integration within iWork and documents .

I believe this link... http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1325038
basically summarizes what you meant. Correct me if I'm wrong

Yup, sorry I was so tired did not feel like typing anything other than Mountain Lion yesterday. :)

iCloud and Pages works fine for me when editing documents between an iPhone/iPad, but I'm not sure about the mac as I don't have one.
