I hope they bring over the looks from iOS (leather toolbar for Pages, slate for Keynote/Numbers) even though I know a lot of people are against "leathery" design :D

Yeah... that's not going to happen because reasons (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Ive).

And thank God/Allah/Zeus/Buddha/Vishnu for those reasons.

Good, iWork for iOS is really good. Now my hope is the iWork team is focusing on the long overdue update for the Mac. I hope they bring over the looks from iOS (leather toolbar for Pages, slate for Keynote/Numbers) even though I know a lot of people are against "leathery" design :D

My bet is that they'll release an update this summer, I can think of dozens of features I'd like to see in Keynote!

And still PAGES is missing a simple search feature. I have over 500 docs in folders within the app and no way fast way to search for one.


I feel for you...
If I were you I'd consider WebDAVing them...

Get a second WebDAV client app ready that allows you to browse the files and search for them then.

It's a workaround, but at least something... Have you considered this?

Or use a file manager app to store them.

The best one around right now seems to be Files.
(https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/files-app/id595075818?mt=8)

Again, just a workaround as you need to export and re-import and all that all the time, but hey, that's of course the most natural way of handling files. *cough*
Oh Apple, you and your problems with iOS apps working together more nicely... *sigh*

You're not normal...
But it won't be that hard to implement either.

I'll tell you what's not normal: apps being the folders for the stuff you want to open in them and if you want to open something somewhere else you have to make copies and fight duplicates on a device that already only comes at 64 or (new) 128GB max at a HEFTY surcharge.

Nope, THAT is not normal.

If they insist on apps being their own document folders, they better get their act together and fight the need to duplicate stuff, make apps work together better and make app data independent from their apps...
(another random, less crucial example: So you are on vacation and need to free up some space on your iPhone to take more pictures, you're out and about and can't be bothered going back to the hotel where your laptop is... or maybe not? :) You only brought your iPad maybe...)
Either way, you're there and just want to free up some space, best way to quickly get space, delete that one 1GB game... the joy? Lose your gamesave along the way, because if you install an app again, no way to get the app data back from a backup in iTunes... Hooray! :) - when simplicity gets in the way of crucial functionality or data conservation... then you know you're doing it wrong. And this is just a game example... What if you want to delete and reinstall an app to fix crashes? Well, bad luck if it's got important data in it. Long story short: Your data in iOS is always just inches away from being dug into the grave of data destruction by bad OS/backup&restore design. Unless you're jailbroken and willing to spend some time fixing stuff by hand... Which actually sounds more like Android than iOS, doesn't it? (the fixing stuff by hand part))

What I want is 1:1 compatibility between the iOS versions and OSX versions. And also for iWork to become the first cross platform universal app that works on iOS and OSX for the same price (purchase gets you both packages)

Not sure what is more important -- updating the Mac version to completely kill off the need for MS office or making the iOS version equal to the Mac version. I no longer use the MS stuff at home and really do not miss it, but I am not 100% sure I could get away with MS at the office. But I do find that I can start things on my iPad but usually finish it on the Mac. So there are opportunities for improvement in both areas.


I don't think you're ever going to see complete feature parity between Office and iWork. For those of use who left Office behind, that's okay -- iWork has never been about feature cram, and this is a good thing. You're also probably never going to see complete feature parity between the Mac and iOS versions of iWork, and that's a little less okay. The limitations of iOS iWork can be a problem if you create documents on the Mac and things get lost in translation. Until/unless Apple allows fonts to be added to iOS, this is always going to be a problem without a fix.
