Pages Rules

Apple Pages icon In case you were wondering, Pages rules.

Finally fed up with "Word"? Can't figure out how to wrap text around an image, or just want to make a killer PDF in no time flat? Fire up Pages and go to town. Of course it takes advantage of inline spell-checking, page numbering, and all the text styling that's built into OS X. Yes, you can save as a Word doc (if your co-workers aren't so hip). Yes, you can create templates and all that good stuff.

But the advantage here is really just that old standby: Drag & Drop. From the Finder, from Preview, from iPhoto, Safari, wherever - it just works. I haven't had this much fun in an editor since I graduated from BBEdit to Dreamweaver.

Save yourself a hassle. Go Apple.
