Hi everyone

Does any one knows why after having paid for this app ( PAGES) and tried to download on my computer it DOES NOT download. Can someone tell me why this is happening?

Did you buy it from the iOS app store or the Mac app store? As they are 2 different apps.

]Hey thanks guys. that is nice.

To answer one question...every time I wanted to make a purchase it took me to the APP store. The I went to the Mac software store and it took me to APP store. Don't get it!

I did not realise this. I had one on my Ipad. But the one I wanted to purchase was for my Mac. Microsoft annoys me to bits.

So I paid the $20.99 and waited 14 h to download. Which of course it did not. Contacted Apple and they did not comprehend it either.


After a whole night of despair ( exaggerating of course) I let it be. Low and behold in the morning the whole thing was downloaded. I still don't get it tho.
But you guys seem to have pinned it.

it looks as if it working. That is all I wanted.

If it sounds garbled ...let me know

Thanks again.

So you went to the main Apple site and that redirected you to the Mac App store? That sounds right. Apple are selling very little, if anything, boxed anymore. Strange that it took so long to download though.

I grew up in Lismore, not far from where Pegi lives, and I can understand the download time. It takes a long time to move data along that string between the two cans :)
