Apple’s Pages App for iPad Updated


Apple recently updated the Pages word processing app for the iPad. Improvements include better font matching when opening a Pages or MS Word file, word count for a document, opening a .txt file from the iPad’s Mail application, as well as importing and exporting existing tables of contents, document sections, footnotes and endnotes. Those who have Apple’s MobileMe service now have the option to save documents to iDisk.
