If you want to install and use the Pages app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Pages in the search bar and press Search. Click on Pages application icon. A window of Pages on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes
Download Android

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • ONE Problem and only ONE!!!

    By Snikpoh9402
    I absolutely LOVE pages, numbers and keynote. I have Office on my MacBook but prefer these over Office hands down. I have purchased so many of the template apps as well, that now I think I could open a business creating documents for others. The problem is that the rest of the world does not use these Mac apps. Most of the time, I have to send my masterpieces that I spend hours on back to the office where everyone uses Office, so before I do, I have to send the document to myself so I can see what changes were made in Office and then make it look as close to what I originally created as possible. There should be better compatibility between the 2. Many have complained about the font shortage. That is definitely a true issue, but my biggest complaint is the compatibility. When I import docs from Office to iWork there are also issues (background color or font color changes in keynote, drop down menus change in numbers, etc.) Please, please, please do something to improve this. I love playing with the templates and creating beautiful items that everyone thinks I'm a great graphical genius, but if the rest of the office can't see them, using/buying these apps is pointless.
  • lag and keeps changing my formatting

    By Madman man k?
    Seriously problematic. I even reduced as many features as possible and it has a ton of latency on my iPad 4 (no that's not that old->fast enough to play vainglory no problem. no speed problems searching the internet). I have 1 page documents that have 2 columns and the latency is atrocious. It's a 1 page list! how can this have more lag than a touchscreen moba?! I turned off every bonus feature i could find and it still lags when i click to edit or copy paste...oh and did i mention this new update is reformatting my layout? titles are now somehow in the same row as the text and even after i fix it by separating the two-->but wait! i open the document and they are on top of each other again. This is ridiculous. oh and i'd edit this, but why bother---clearly its totally cool now days to just put things out there without quality control. and i may sound like that guy that's critical on everything--i'm not! I never give bad reviews! Seriously never---but this basic app has been giving me problems for months. i've posted on the ios boards, read every possible thing i could about the problem---nothing helps. I just want to cut and paste and click without waiting 3 seconds every-time i click to edit---and final i thought they fixed it! nope! 10x worse and with new and exciting formatting problems!
  • Can’t create new documents on the iPhone app version

    By Icosace1022
    I don’t use this app very often and in fact mainly use it to make memes every now and then, ergo, I can’t said much about how great the app is. HOWEVER, I will mention this one complaint that has stopped me from being able to use the app on my iPhone. The app never stops loading a new document when I select one, after pressing the plus sign. After deleting and reinstalling the Pages app several times, and even getting to a place where I had Wi-fi, it still didn’t allow me to create anything new. Also, it wouldn’t let me open a document up I originally made; I thought I could just open up an old and delete everything and rename it later, but the app couldn’t even open something that was old. Eventually I gave up and just downloaded the app to my iPad, and it worked fine. Although, I don’t take my iPad everywhere, of course, and would appreciate it if you fix this problem with the iPhone version. I have no idea myself on what’s going on, maybe the loading is taking forever. Hopefully you guys can figure it out. Thanks.
  • Great app for so many reasons

    By DenaSings
    I have used Pages since its inception. I’ve used it on desktops, laptops, pads and phones. Each update makes the app better. Many of the complaints listed here are easily solved by watching videos or fixes made in updates. Some of the solutions are not apparent. However, spending a bit of time trouble shooting works. It’s nice to be able to create all the documents for my three business— from letterheads to invoices to signs to booklets to labels. To be able to access them across all my devices and send them to anyone by pdf or word document is amazing. The only issue I have is with printing booklets because my color laser printer is old and does not interface well. In previous versions of the app, it was easy to invert an entire page. But believe me, all the other benefits of this program outweighs that small issue. I just need to get a new laser printer with the money I’ve saved on graphic design. Enjoy.

  • Don’t update old documents to make new documents!

    By AdamiusRex
    This app has some terrible problems. It can be a good app, as long as you don’t fall into a couple BIG problems that it has. For example, let’s say you had a document you made with pages and you don’t need it anymore, but it is formatted and has headers that are exactly what you need for a new document. So you open the old one, gut a lot of it out and type 20 new pages of text. When you close it and open it, ALL 20 pages of your new work are gone and the document has reverted back to the original document you opened. You try to pull up autosaves to see if your new work is contained in any of them, and while it does show that it has made multiple autosaves, your new work isn’t actually in ANY of them. The THUMBNAILS are your new work, but when you actually open them, it isn’t there. So ALL your new work was for NOTHING. This is ridiculously frustrating and an unacceptable programming problem. This problem does not occur if you cut or copy the headers that you want and paste them into a new document altogether, but trying to modify an old document is very dangerous and most likely will not work. Pages has another unexplainable problem. Often if you try to open a document (let’s say it’s called “BusinessLetter”), when you click on it, Pages will often CLONE the document and open it up as a new document (which will then be called “BusinessLetter2”). If you keep closing it and trying to open it again, it will continue cloning it every time, continually creating new cloned documents called things like “BusinessLetter3”, “BusinessLetter4”, etc. This is clearly not how this app was intended to work. When you google the problem, you will see that MANY, MANY people have brought this problem to the attention of the programmers but it has still never been fixed. Maybe if the Pages programmers would fix some of these big problems and focus a little less on hiding program functions under increasingly sexy but decreasingly scrutable hieroglyphs, this could be a great program again. I mean, the new addition from the most recent update is ANIMATED DRAWINGS!!! REALLY??!!! That’s what we needed?? Animated drawings?! Not the ability to modify a document without losing all of our new work?! I think a lot of the problems stem from unforeseen incompatibilities or results of interaction of this app and its autosave features with the Cloud or other features of the iPad. They make all these programs so smart, they outsmart EACH OTHER and then nothing works and the person who pays the price is the user/customer. I lost a 30 page document which took me forever to create and I had to re-create it FROM SCRATCH. All the Apple “geniuses” couldn’t do anything to bring it back. We could all see a correct thumbnail of my new work, but upon opening it, it would always be the old document and ALL of my new work was gone. Clearly, the new data existed SOMEWHERE, but it was inaccessible to anyone, including even Apple programmers. I would have been better off if I had been writing the document in a spiral bound paper notebook.
  • Disappointed

    By Village Dweller
    Since last “update”, NONE of my documents will open. The initial error I get suggests I try installing an older version of the app, but gives no link. When I hit a document to try to print or edit, the screen blacks out and goes back to home screen. Running latest iPad updates.
  • Weird

    By AlanHughes
    Still no indent button on the onscreen keyboard. Since updating for iOS 12, the red squiggly line for misspelled words constantly flashes as you type, which is enough to make it impossible for me to use unless it goes away eventually. Hopefully its just a new bug and not a "feature." *iOS 12.1 hasn't fixed this. Still can't open two documents at a time either.

    Love pages so much, helpful for all of my school projects and more!!!!!!!👍
  • Good app, bad reviews

    By cdwteryssetawerawerawtaer
    Wow. Pages is getting a really negative reputation that I, for one, would like to get rid of. Pages is a cool app and has so many new features and cool fonts. It’s simple and a great app now that Plaintext shut down. Thanks for reading this and I hope you change your opinion about Pages if you have been thinking negatively. ——A writer using her dad’s account to save Pages’s reputation
  • Terrible

    By Mermarmag
    Very difficult to use!
  • Elegant, versatile and feature rich

    By Ras.rob
    I find the interface and options to be incredibly elegant in simplicity, which keeps me focused on writing, while at the same time having feature rich options easy to find and use. This is a difficult balance to achieve but wonderful that the folks at apple can pull it off!
  • Collaboration is broken

    By Blueboshi
    Files just get stuck “waiting to upload” several kilobytes
  • Pen bff !

    By Followedbyabear
    This is so good, you get to change the script and you can make pictures move and you can add stamps, and you can see all the documents! And why I say “ pens BFF” is because I am in high school, and I can write and send to my high school! So get this app!!!!!!!!!!😫😛😋😝😜🤪🤩😎🤓🧐🤨🤨
  • Glitchy

    By Maddie 6851
    I have been using Pages for over 4 years now. Through the updates, Pages has experienced minor changes. And although being a little slow, I have ignored it because of its fluidity in creating documents and sharing/transferring to word documents. However since the new updates, when I begin to rename/move documents into folders, sometimes it unexpectedly says that the user has now no longer allowed me to open the document. But I am the user and creator and was literally working on it 3 seconds ago. So I usually duplicate it and then I can open the document up again. Also when creating documents with pictures, it is super frustrating to move the pictures around. Somehow it does not respond to my touch and is annoying considering it takes me 5 times to move a picture a fraction of an inch to the right. Please fix this Apple in the new update. I want it fixed!!
