It might just be the UI to me then, Im probably missing the options because they arn't as obvious as they could be. I think with productivity apps they need to focus more on the functionality of the app rather than how it looks. For example having more options at the top when typing instead of just the basic text options. Things are just a bit more obvious on polaris.

Not to mention that you also have to pay £14 in total over here for Pages and Numbers where as Polaris office comes free with the Prime (and my sensation xe for that matter).

I thought the UI was pretty good: link

You see more in landscape, and in portrait you've got quick access to everything from a few little buttons at the top that drop down with info. I've never seen Polaris, so I don't know what it looks like. EDIT: Actually, I'm wrong. You see the same view in landscape and portrait. The editing tools pop down when you're typing.

Took a quick screenshot for you:

(there are more options if you swipe the bar to the left.)

Ah okay, thanks. From what I can tell, Pages has those too, it's just some of them only show up when you're editing (keyboard up)
