Whats a good word processor to buy from the app shop online.
The missus has a new iMac, very swish but it doesnt have a word processor.
Were looking for something like old Claris works, or Appleworks, but dont need the drawing - graphic stuff.
Just for letters, documents.
I have iA Writer on my mac lap top, but you cant change fonts or colours.
Whats a good one?

You should be able to download pages for free or it may be pre-installed if you have a brand new Mac.

Thanks Glibber, that works for me as Im on OS10.10.4, it says you need 10.10 or later.
The missus iMac , where we want the new program in on OS 10.8.5.
She doesnt want to upgrade as it will make her CS3 Suite + myob redundant.
Too great a leap for mankind.
Any other suggestions?

FREE and while I have used the windows version it's excellent.

There is also Openoffice which is also FREE.

Probably better not to call it a new iMac then, as it sounds second hand if it's running software that old.

Google docs or Microsoft Office online -both free and are accessed through a web browser on any machine.
