Apple rolled out a beta version of iWork for iCloud yesterday, which allows registered developers to try out the forthcoming online document editing service at beta.icloud.com. In our latest hands-on video, we take a closer look at iWork for iCloud, and conclude that the online suite is indeed as impressive as it looked during Apple's recent WWDC 2013 keynote. Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gns-Sx00Fk
If you can't see the above video, please click this link.As you can see, iWork for iCloud replicates Apple's Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, and makes all three applications available to access from within a Web browser, on either a Mac or PC. With iCloud enabled on your personal desktop computer and your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, any changes made at iWork for iCloud will sync between your Mac and iDevices. Apple explains online:
iWork has always been the best way to be productive on the Mac. And iWork for iOS made it easy to create beautiful documents on iPad and iPhone. With iWork for iCloud we’re bringing Pages, Numbers, and Keynote to the web — on Mac and PC. And thanks to iCloud, your work is always up to date on all your devices.No release date has yet been set for iWork for iCloud, though we'll certainly let you know if this changes.
