iPhone (News - Alert) and iPod Touch users, now you can plan, present and create wherever you go with Apple’s newly released iWork productivity apps.
Originally created for the Mac, the Keynote, Pages and Numbers apps have been redesigned for iOS and Apple’s (News - Alert) Multi-Touch interface. For $9.99 each, users can create and present dazzling presentations, organized and formatted documents, and informative spreadsheets anytime and anywhere on their iPhone and iPod Touch devices.
“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, in a press release. “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.”
In addition to importing and exporting documents from both Mac’s and Microsoft (News - Alert) Office’s iWork and wireless printing capability, all updated universal apps offer enhanced document management paired with thumbnail images for quick file finding and organizing. A Tools button in the toolbar enables users share any document, presentation or spreadsheet without having to navigate away from the app.
With Keynote, users can easily create animated and stunning charts, presentations and transitions that can be displayed in full-screen view with the high-resolution Retina display or on a projector or HDTV through an external connection. Users can even pair Keynote with the Keynote Remote app for instant control of a presentation from their iPhone or iPod Touch.
For the ultimate word processor experience, Pages makes full use of the high-resolution Retina display on the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch for zoom functionality. And, with more than 250 functions, tables and charts, the Numbers app helps users create eye-catching, detailed spreadsheets. While it may seem difficult to work with text and cells on devices like the iPhone and iPod, the Retina display and Smart Zoom tools help users focus in on every component.
