[...]The scientific community needs features like numbering and cross-referencing tables and figures, decent TOC etc. [...] MS Word is sadly the only current option.
Ahm, you do know LaTeX, do you? Scientific community and Word? That's an Oxymoron.

No iWork for Mac updates

How can we support iWork on the iOS products when Apple has shown a total lack of support for them on the Mac. It's been almost 3 years now with no sign of any updates. Keynote had many updates before this 3 year layoff so it suffers the least. Pages has had about 4 versions but it stills needs some things. Numbers is a weak spreadsheets that needs a few more updates to be a good spreadsheet program. It suffers from being started but not finished. 3 years or more is too long for it to have no updates.

Apple has the way of starting programs or in some cases hardware then quitting them & leaving those that uses the programs no where to go but to other programs. For that reason I will wait for a new Mac iWork version before I will spend any money on an iOS version. With more outwardly work done on this iOS beta than on the Ma version it is hard to think of KeyNote, Pages & Numbers as any type of a current Mac program.

But where is iWork for Mac??? Let's face it, I'm not going to do heavy word processing on an iPhone or not even an iPad. The scientific community needs features like numbering and cross-referencing tables and figures, decent TOC etc. At least, there's Papers from Mekentosj that can handle citations in an acceptable way in Pages, but for the other must-have features, MS Word is sadly the only current option.
Exactly - the last one is from, what, 2009? 2 years old! I want to see a better Endnote integration that works in cross talk with Word. I hate (again HATE!!!!) Word's tendency - or better possession - to move figures in a document to places I don't want them and then, juuuust when I got it back to where I want it - it jumps up 2 pages and screws everything up again. In pages it works like a dream (mostly) but I cannot send anyone else a Pages docs as most of my colleagues work sadly still with MS... And October 5th is coming up!
