Were you beginning to think iWork was dead? Fear not. Today Apple announced iWork for iCloud, its answer to cloud-based document creation in the browser. Also, new versions of the three existing iWork apps are coming later this year.
Instead of needing a standalone app, iWork for iCloud allows you to create, edit, and manage documents entirely in a browser, much like Google Docs and Drive. That means easy document transferring between Macs and PCs with iCloud syncing in the background.
iWork for iCloud supports Pages, Numbers, and Keynote in Safari, Chrome, and yes, even Internet Explorer. So you’ll be able to edit a Keynote document on Windows 8 now. Cool?
Apple is making iWork for iCloud available as a developer preview today.
