This makes me cross !

 

I have bought Pages for the iPad so I can open and edit Pages documents that I create on my office Mac.

However my iPad version will not import them because it will only import from files that are created with iWork 09 ! - my office Mac runs 08 and I'm perfectly happy with it.

I can see that the import screen on the iPad has correctly read the document I'm trying to open but it still refuses to actually import it.

What ??

 

However it will open Word documents from software that is 10 years old.

 

This seems like a very cynical piece of marketing.

I am obliged to buy another copy of iWork to get my Mac to communicate with my iPad ??

What are they thinking ?

 

Actually this makes me very cross
