Publisher Plus is for those who need more templates, options than Pages provides

If you do a lot of template-based document creation and find the templates that come with Apple Pages is too limiting, you should check out Publisher Plus from PearlMountain Technology. It's available for $19.99 at the Mac App Store in the Graphics & Design category.

Targeted to business and home uses, Publisher Plus — which requires Mac OS X 10.7 or higher — packs 170-plus well-designed templates, including flyers, brochures, business cards, newsletters, adverts, reports, calendars, posters, booklets, etc. Blank templates are available as well. I have used the business card template to create new cards. I tried to do this in Pages, but found the PearlMountain app gave me more options.

You have the ability to create create multiple pages. Publisher Plus' intuitive interface lets you easily add images, text, shapes and other objects to documents. You can apply frames, masks, and filers to photos. You can customize text font, style, size, and color. You can create customized calendars. You can also add some preset shapes or draw your own using the drawing tool. 

Plus, there are a variety of export and share options. Naturally, you can print it. However, you can also share it via email, Facebook, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr on Mac OS X 10.8 or later.

Despite all these features, Publisher Plus isn't for everyone. If Pages meets all your document creation needs, you can save yourself 20 bucks. However, if Apple's own app doesn't meet those needs, PearlMountain's software could be $20 well spent.
