Word vs Pages
Word is a traditional word processor, allowing you to create and save documents, format text with headings, bold and italic, etc. It is suitable for everything, but not very good at one particular thing. Unlike Pages, Word is available on all major platforms, including Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android.
Apple Pages is just a simpler, more polished, more aesthetically pleasing, though less powerful version of Microsoft Word. It is a good choice if you are looking for a word processor that is easy to use and looks good.
Fan of writing apps? 🤔
Maybe Paper is what you're looking for.
