Apple Launches iWork Office Suite for iPhone and iPod Touch

iwork
Apple today announced that its iWork suite of applications for the iPad has been updated to include universal binaries now capable of running on the smaller screen of the iPhone and iPod touch.

"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 three iWork applications for iOS (Keynote, Pages, and Numbers) are available individually via the App Store and are priced at $9.99 apiece. Besides the Universal upgrade, Apple has also added a few new features to the apps:

Keynote
• Keynote Remote app (sold separately on the App Store) to control your presentation from another iPhone or iPod touch.
• New document manager to easily sort your documents and organize them into folders.

Numbers
• New document manager to easily sort your documents and organize them into folders.
• Improved usability including Smart Zoom for viewing and editing data.

Pages
• New document manager to easily sort your documents and organize them into folders.
• Ability to change font style and size directly from the ruler when editing text.
• Smart Zoom for viewing and editing data.

Several hints nearly a year ago had indicated that Apple was working on a version of iWork for the smaller screen, but any rumors of a launch have been scant since that time.

This is great, but what we really want is iWork for the iPod nano. And XCode for my iPhone.

This is probably good for minor editing or quick last-minute adjustments.

+1 for universal binary and not having to buy them again.

If I didn't already own the iPad version this wouldn't offer good value for money, but as an update to the existing version, it's more than welcome.

Apple iWorks...talk about an oxymoron ;):p They are copying MS yet again, e.g. MS Works ;)
Are you are aware that Apple first released an integrated suite called AppleWorks for the Apple ][ in 1984? Microsoft first released Microsoft Works in 1986 in order to compete with AppleWorks. Who's copying who there, then? ;)

Sweet.

Would have been nice 6 months ago, but now it's here.

Thank you, Apple. Wish this was around 6 months ago, but I'll take it nevertheless.

Do my eyes deceive me? LTD and Full of Win, the Mac Rumors polar opposites think alike? :eek:
