Apple closing iWork.com beta on July 31, points users to iCloud

iWork Beta ends icloud

Apple has just announced that it's closing down the iWork.com beta in light of the fact that iCloud has become the company's de facto standard for cloud storage and sharing. It's certainly interesting, since iCloud doesn't yet have all the features that iWork.com has, namely talking about document storage and sharing, as well as the ability to download the stored document in a variety of formats on the fly. Maybe that'll be changing soon? iWork.com users have until July 31, 2012 before the service is shuttered. Full text of the email that Apple sent to iWork.com users after the break.

iWork apps updated for iPad Retina Display

iWork iPad Retina Display

To go along with the new iPad, Apple has been hard at work updating nearly all of its apps to support the new Retina display of the tablet, and that includes all three iWork apps. Pages, Keynote, and Numbers are all now available in version 1.6 in the super high 2048x1536 resolution. Pages also brings new 3D bar and charts, Keynote has new animations available, and Numbers is largely the same aside from the new Retina support. You can download all the app updates now, or buy them for $9.99 each.

iWork Lion update 6

So, yeah, OS X Lion launched today, but you need your software to take advantage of all those new features in order to really get the most of the product. Apple know that, and they've released iWork Update 6 today, which brings features like full screen, Resume, Auto Save, and Versions to Pages, Keynote, and Numbers. You can grab it now through Software Update.


iWork apps come to iPhone and iPod touch

Pages for iPhone

If you're an iPhone or iPod touch user who's been clamoring for the arrival of iWork on your device, you'll be happy to know that Apple has released updated to Pages, Keynote, and Numbers that not only function on the iPad, but also on Apple mobie devices:

“Now you can use Keynote, Pages and Numbers on iPhone and iPod touch to create amazing presentations, documents and spreadsheets right in the palm of your hand,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “The incredible Retina display, revolutionary Multi-Touch interface and our powerful software make it easy to create, edit, organize and share all of your documents from iPhone 4 or iPod touch.”

The apps are universal, so if you've already bought any (or all) of them for your iPad, there's no need to spend any more money. Just update the apps, and they'll install on your iPhone or iPod touch through iTunes, or you can download them directly from the App Store on those devices at no additional cost.

The most interesting thing about this? iWork for iPhone was supposed to be released at WWDC this coming Monday, but it got released early because Apple didn't have enough time in the keynote to cover it. That must mean something else just got a higher priority. We'll see on Monday!


Apple ending rebates on MobileMe and iWork, updates to follow?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Rumors, Software

MobileMe rebate

Apple has inexplicably ended two long-offered rebates for MobileMe and iWorks, fueling speculation that it will launch revamped versions of both software suites any day now.

"The 'Buy a Mac and Save $30 on iWork' and 'Buy a Mac or iPad and Save $30 on MobileMe' promotions will both end on April 18, 2011. Resellers must remove any reference to these promotions by close of business on that date," Apple wrote in an alleged letter to resellers obtained by 9to5Mac.

You can still download a free 60-day trial of MobileMe or pay $99 for the annual subscription; iWork is free for 30 days and $79 to purchase thereafter.

Apple MobileMe remotely stores your files and photos, and pushes email and calendar updates to your iOS device or Mac desktop. It launched in 2000 and was last updated in 2008 during Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), held every June.

In December 2010, an Apple fan emailed Steve Jobs to complain about MobileMe, and Jobs reportedly replied, "Yes, it will get a lot better in 2011."
