The iWork apps for Mac need a complete overhaul, in my opinion. I think that Microsoft did a great job with the ribbon interface; it really fits well for productivity.


And then there are those who have used Ribbons for 4 years, and still hate them...

Where the EFF is iWork '13?? Will we be stuck at iWork '09 forever?


It's officially entered abandonware status imho. I really can't see how the biggest company in the world, with 100s of billions sitting in the bank can't put together a team of 50 people to work on iwork for os x. Maybe, if need be, also HIRE some people too, you know? Their wages would be about 1/10 they spend opening up a new store or something... It's beyond my comprehension...

That's your opinion. The majority of MS Office users hate the ribbon and prefer the pre 2007 UI. Anecdotal evidence is awesome.

Desktop app only updated to support iOS Device changes. :rolleyes:

Citing the lack of updates to iPhoto, iWork, and Aperture, does Apple even employ Desktop app developers anymore?
