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

“Crippled iWorks apps for iPad causes confusion and frustration for new owners”

My Keynote and Pages documents are altered when they are converted to the iPad version. Grouped objects are ungrouped (this for me is a big issue given my complex presentations), endnotes and footnotes are not imported in Pages, Table of Content changes to regular text, some fonts cannot be used on the iPad, etc.

That doesn’t really lessen the achievement of having a quite functional version of Keynote or Pages running on the iPad, but it’s a pity, and made much worse by the fact that Apple’s communication about the apps, both on the website and in the keynote, has indeed been misleading.
