Some of my workmates have mentioned how much they would miss using Apple's Pages app when switiching to Chromebooks.  Has anyone found an app that is as fantastic as Pages if not better?

    Hi Roimata,

    I haven't got the answer you want unfortunately.  But I too was a Pages freek.  Have been using GAFE's doc's for 4 years, and really don't miss it.   A lot of our TA's are switching to chromebooks and there are some really awesome add on's you can have like ProWriting Aid.  It wont write for you, but really helps.  Its great for  students too, as it scafolds their learning/ they begin to understand why writing is the way it is and they learn from using it.

    After 6 months your teachers wont remember what they were worried about.  Cool

    Plus the collaborative aspect to doc's is so enriching for students and teachers a like.  Your school will resist the transition, but in the end will wonder why they didn't migrate sooner..
