With a recent update, Apple Pages (7.0) now has Masters, like Keynote. Granted, it cannot rival the editing scope of Adobe InDesign to produce and publish layouts. That is a given. But it is a sound solution to create beautiful documents, fast. And thanks to this improvement, it now makes sense to use it for storyboards as well.
With a template, you can just drop images in the placeholder frames and add notes in the formatted text boxes. Here are a few Apple Pages templates to help you design storyboard presentations in no time.
If you use Pages in your workflow and need to create a neat storyboard layout, one of these templates should help. Also, you can download Pages for free from the Apple App Store-you will find it in Productivity Apps.

All the templates are in the Apple Pages .template format. When opening a template, chose either New Document or Add to Template Chooser. The later will add the template to your theme library (“Choose a Template”) within Pages. Next time you need the template, it will be waiting there.
Pages templates only work on Mac. You need to own the font licenses for all the templates to work in the proper way.
