"Good but still room for imporvment"3.5 starson by MediaNoxStella
Cons: some features are missing
Summary: Let me start with this, I am not a big fan of Office, and have been looking for a replacement ever since I moved to a Mac. The following review is for Page and Number only. I have no complains on Keynote.
iWork is a great application suit and has most of the stuffs a regular user would ever need. It is not hard to find Apple had put in a lot of work into it.
After using iWork for 2 month, I still can't find myself removing MS Office from my Mac. I am an engineering student, so I have to work in a ground a lot. Therefore compatibility with MS Office on Windows is vital to me. I can't work together unless my teammates and I are looking at the same thing. Most of the common files open without a problem. I only find formating problems in files with advanced editing (Most of the users would not use them). Although most of the time, iWork would tell you where the problems are and try to fix it. But often removing the format is the only solution on there.
I also found it is hard to do my works without feature like trend line and other data analysis kits.
I will recommend iWork to common user who looks for an application to write simple letters, and tracking resource. However, for advanced users who work in teams with mixed environment, Office is still the choice.
