With the exception of the some changes to incorporate help for iCloud, Apple hasn’t provided its iWork workplace suite too much attention because its launch inside 2009 – at smallest found on the desktop, anyway.
Pages, Numbers plus Keynote for iOS ($ 9.99 every within the App Store) every got a noticeable update now. However found on the desktop, the anemic iWork Update 9.3, additionally introduced now, adds help for Apple’s iWork 1.7 iOS apps — plus not much else.
Apple’s iWork apps for iOS are actively being developed with snazzy qualities like:
Change monitoring plus roundtripping of changes (Pages)
Import plus export spreadsheets with filters, plus turn filters about plus off (Numbers)
Support for different PowerPoint plus Keynote slide sizes, presentation themes, master slides plus preset designs (Keynote)
…but iWork ’09 for the Mac just gets an casual me-too upgrade with help for brand-new iOS attributes. That’s lame. If Apple’s going to give a true alternative to Microsoft Office plus Google Docs/Drive, it must update its desktop workplace suite over each 4 years.
