PAGES: Files with PAGES file extensions are documents that come from Apple's Pages word processor, which is part of the iWork suite, an office suite from Apple, this set of applications runs on the MAC OS X and iOS operating systems . Many users consider PAGES as a direct competitor to Microsoft Word, initially it was aimed at taking a more simplistic approach to document creation and editing in Word, leaving aside many of the more complex features of Word.

It incorporates most of the key features found in modern word processors, including WYSIWYG-based font selection, use of headers, footers, bookmarks, lists, and support for automatically generating a table of contents. Pages also comes with the standard spelling and grammar checkers.
