I have a 3rd generation iPad, recently updated to the I hate IOS8. Pages was in the most recent update and got stuck at the "Loading" stage, about 2/3 through the circle. Restarting the iPad and restarting this process via the app store, Pages app, still gets stuck at the same place. And, of course, there are random restarts happening from day to day. Pages does not appear in the list in the Updates part of the app store. Hooking up to iTunes did not help. Pages was not recognised and in the list of apps on the iPad. I have some files from Pages backed up but plenty are not, and I do not want to lose them. I am hoping there is some solution to finish this up. If not, I see a Surface in my future. Too many problems of late at Apple.
