In addition to releasing new versions of its productivity apps for Mac and iOS, Apple today offers an updated iWork for iCloud with major improvements across the web-based versions of Pages, Keynote, and Numbers.
The whole suite gets improved Retina display support, an updated document editor UI, view-only sharing options to keep recipients from editing the document you’re sending, and the ability to open documents from iCloud Mail.
Pages gets improved text wrapping and new templates, Keynote adds the ability to edit charts within imported files, and Numbers gets an updated design in the spreadsheet editor, improved pop-up menus.
iWork is free to use on iCloud.com, with all three apps still in beta. Apple updates Pages, Keynote and Numbers on a regular basis, bringing new features as well as returning existing functionality that users requested.
Notable changes in the OS X version of Pages include media browser improvements, improved AppleScript support, better placement of inserted and pasted objects, improved support for bi-directional text, the ability to delete, duplicate and reorder sections using the page navigator, improved ePub export, and more.
