Apple Unveils Updated iWork Apps for iPad Users

When considering the enhancements expected with the iPad, iWork wasn’t initially at the forefront of discussion. However, Steve Jobs envisioned its potential and directed his team to adapt iWork specifically for the iPad, leveraging its unique capabilities.

This adaptation has resulted in a specialized version of iWork for the iPad, incorporating the same trio of applications as its Mac counterpart: Pages, Numbers, and Keynote.

The design of iWork for iPad is meticulously crafted to complement the device’s multitouch screen, eschewing traditional floating tool palettes for a more integrated, on-demand approach. Notably, Numbers has been equipped with a specialized keyboard designed to enhance data entry via the multitouch interface.

Early feedback suggests that this version of iWork is significantly more robust than typical iPhone applications.

Each application within the suite—Pages, Numbers, and Keynote—is available for $9.99.

Currently, there is no confirmation on whether these applications will also be made available for iPhone or iPod touch.
