Apple Releases iWork for iPhone and iPod touch

Share:

Whoa. Hot on the heels of this morning’s announcement of iCloud at next week’s WWDC, Apple PR just dropped a huge bombshell via press release: iWork for the iPhone and iPod touch! Press release below:

CUPERTINO, California—May 31, 2011—Apple® today announced that its groundbreaking iWork® productivity apps, Keynote®, Pages® and Numbers®, are now available for iPhone® and iPod touch®, as well as iPad®. Created for the Mac® and then completely redesigned for iOS and Apple’s revolutionary Multi-Touch™ interface, Keynote, Pages and Numbers allow you to create and share stunning presentations, beautifully formatted documents and powerful spreadsheets on the go. iWork apps are available on the App Store™ for $9.99 each to new users and as a free update for existing iWork for iPad customers.

“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.”

Keynote, Pages and Numbers import and export documents from iWork for Mac and Microsoft Office; print wirelessly using AirPrintâ„¢; and include beautiful Apple-designed themes and templates. All iWork apps now include improved document management with thumbnail images that let you find your files quickly, organize them and group them into folders using intuitive gestures. From the Tools button in the toolbar, you can easily share any presentation, document or spreadsheet without leaving the app.

Keynote makes it easy to create impressive presentations, complete with animated charts and transitions. You can play your presentation in Full Screen view on the stunning, high-resolution Retinaâ„¢ display or connect to a projector or HDTV for a large audience. Available separately, the Keynote Remote app allows your iPhone or iPod touch to control a Keynote presentation on any iOS device or Mac.

Pages is the most beautiful word processor ever designed for a mobile device and has everything you need to create amazing documents. Pages takes full advantage of the high-resolution Retina display on iPhone 4 and iPod touch so you can see all the detail and richness of your documents. To make working with text easy on iPhone and iPod touch, Smart Zoom automatically zooms in to follow the cursor while you’re editing and zooms back out when you’re done.

Numbers uses Multi-Touch gestures and an intelligent keyboard to help you create compelling, great-looking spreadsheets with over 250 easy-to-use functions, flexible tables and eye-catching charts. Just like Pages, Numbers takes advantage of the high-resolution Retina display and Smart Zoom to make working with text and cells on iPhone 4 or iPod touch easy.

Strange Apple would announce iWork for iPhone a week before WWDC, and at $9.99 each. These apps already exist for the iPad and they have been leaked for the iPhone in the past.

    i hate to be such a buzzkill but this is going to be impossible to use on an almost 4″ screen. And they keyboard is going to be cramped up (and even on landscape) barely anything is visible with the keyboard onscreen.

  • I see this compatibility release more for quick edits on the go. It’s tough to work on a small screen.

    idk if anyone ever experienced this, but after I got my iPad 2 (thanks to this website btw) my iPhone is almost unusable. My iPhone 2G just can’t work with me. I find the screen extremely small, and the only thing I do with it is calls. Everything else is on my iPad. You?

    Those who bought iWork for their macs or got it through buying a new mac with it preinstalled should get this free or at least at a discounted price. lots of apps are made for both iPhone/iPad toss Mac in that loop too as it also has its own app store. link the Apple universe together baby!

    $9.99 per Apple product, when current Documents to Go basic (which gives the user a Word to Go, Sheet to Go and Powerpoint and PDF viewer) for the price of one? And it allows editing and creation of .doc and .docx files?

    Apple’s iWork products may look pretty, but is that worth the additional cost and less compatibility?
