Apple iWork: New Design With Intelligent Format

An office suite of application, iWork, was created by Apple Inc. for OS X and iOS operating systems consisting of keynote, word processing, presentation program and desktop publishing with the help of Pages and Numbers where the attention of the audience can be drawn towards cinematic application, Pages and spreadsheet application, Numbers. iWork is one of the easiest options in creating excellent documents, presentations and spreadsheets where writing and page layout can be done easily with animations, effects in Keynote and transitions since iWork is compatible with Microsoft Office which makes sharing the work even much easier.

Oldest Application - Keynote
Keynote is the oldest application in iWork which was released in 2003 as a standalone application while Pages was released as the first iWork in 2005. Numbers was later added towards 2007 with the release of iWork’08 followed by iWork’09 including access to iWork.com. This being a beta service, it enabled users to upload and share documents which has now been integrated into Apple’s iCloud service with iOS port which was released in 2010. Towards 2013, Apple then released a new OS X version with iWork for iCloud with a set of cross-platform web applications and an improved version of the native software.
The same year, Apple also announced that iOS devices purchased from September onwards as well as OS X computers purchased from October onwards, whether refurbished or new, would be eligible for free download of all three iWork applications while iWork for iCloud would also be incorporated for document hosting services which would be free for all iCloud account holders. New updates for iWorks suite of productivity apps for both Mac as well as iOS have been released where these applications were rewritten to a fully 64 bit to support a file format between OS X and iOS 7 versions and iWork for iCloud beta.

Stability Improvements and Bug Fixes
The all new design features an intelligent format panel with many additional features along with easy options in sharing documents. Moreover it has capabilities of designed styles for objects, new templates and animations in Keynote as well as interactive charts. Keynote envisaged the biggest improvement for iOS with a variety of new transitions. In addition to it, Pages and Numbers also received unnamed stability improvements, while Keynote for Mac also received the same updated transitions similar to iOS where Pages and Numbers each received toolbar customizations options together with other bug fixes.

App with a 64 bit Architecture
Users with earlier versions of iWork on iOS and Mac can avail the updates at no cost like those purchasing the new Mac and iOS devices. For those with the older devices and without the apps, have the liberty of purchasing each for $19.99 on the Mac App Store and $9.99 each on the iOS App Store. Apple is all out in bringing about the best experience to their users with the provision of iPhoto, GarageBand, iMovie besides Pages, Numbers and Keynote which come free with every Mac and iOS device. With all these app built with a 64 bit architecture, users can take full advantage of the powerful hardware and do excellent work with photos, music, movies, together with their documents, spreadsheets and presentations while the iCloud built in each app also helps in enhancing the work experience.
