Apple Opens iWork for iCloud Beta to All Users

After sending beta invites to a number of users in recent weeks, Apple has apparently decided to open the iWork for iCloud beta to all registered users with an Apple ID. The beta, which can be accessed through the standard iCloud login page, contains full access to in-browser versions of Apple’s iWork software suite, including Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, in addition to existing iCloud services.

Apple first introduced iWork for iCloud during its annual Worldwide Developers Conference back in June, and sent invites to registered developers soon after before gradually adding non-developer users. The web services work on both Mac and Windows computers in various browsers with support for Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer, as well as mobile devices. iCloud itself also received an iOS 7-inspired makeover earlier this month on the beta site, although iWork for iCloud icons on the beta site have so far retained their iOS 6 look. The revamped iCloud site with iWork for iCloud is expected to officially launch this fall.

Web based software? no thank you.

You should try it, it's actually very nice. Apple finally seems to have gotten web apps right.

It's not running OS X.

I think TC03 was saying, "I want that black laptop, but I want it to be running OSX."

Having tried this it's actually massively nicer to use than Google Docs. Apple finally doing something in the cloud that isn't anaemic, unreliable and generally meh? Hope so.

Well duh.

But make it into a hackintosh and it will run OSX. Just saying.

You'll be lucky. Very few laptops are hackintoshable if you want everything to work or work smoothly.
