Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

“iWork Pages for the iPad: Good for Casual Writing but Lacks a Few Essential Features”

Footnotes and endnotes, for example, are simply deleted, making Pages for the iPad almost useless for a lot of students and academics. Tables of content simply become part of the text, which means that they don’t auto-update any more.

I’m sure it’s temporary (porting iWork to a completely different platform is a lot of work, and some stuff has to end up on a waiting list), but it really sucks when Pages and Numbers are the killer apps of the iPad as a productivity device — and when students make up a big part of its supposed target audience.
