    Since it was free, I fiddled with Pages 13 for a week or two and generally didn't like it.

    I loaded iWork '09 onto my computer and wow! What a different the old Pages is! Far, far more powerful than the new version.

    Pages is the only word processing tool i use, but i use it only for writing CV's, resumes and simple letters, i have found Pages 13 to be fine for that. I hate the new icon, bot other than that, i dons't see much difference. But reading forums and what pages13 have done to some 400+ long document created with 09 version...i was shocked.
    Apple this days is a mess.

    I've found Pages '13 to be brilliant for writing short reports containing very few images/figures.

    If however the report comprises of several sections and contains numerous images/figures, then it's absolutely useless to me.

    Apple's productivity suite simply isn't useful for anything but the very basic. And to be honest, I think Numbers even before the update lacked some very basic features.

    I wouldn't use iWork if they paid me. It's absolutely rubbish in my opinion.

    Been using iWork for a long time and frankly I like it quite a bit. It's missing many features but for majority of the tasks it's quite feasible to use.
