First announced on Monday in the WWDC 2013 keynote, the iWork for iCloud beta is now live for registered developers to preview. Essentially, this is Apple's answer to Google Drive's online document editing tools, and promises almost the same experience as the desktop versions of the iWork apps.

The main difference here is that Windows PC users can also take advantage. Windows users are also iOS users, so iWork for iCloud is sure to be of benefit to anyone without a Mac that uses iWork on their iOS devices. It also promises to be compatible with Microsoft Office documents, with a simple drag and drop mechanism demonstrated for importing them.

iWork for iCloud is scheduled to launch openly this coming fall, but registered developers can take the new service for a spin over at right now.
