With Pages you can elegantly compose anything and everything from a newsletter to a book, a memo to flyer, essay to resume, poster to card. Pick from many hand designed templates or download one from several online sources and import it. Add clip art, images, and more to personalize your documents even further.

Numbers is an all-in-one spreadsheet solution that lets you quickly plan anything and everything from a checklist to budget, savings plan to schedule, team roster to party plan, invoice to cost projection, grade book to lesson chart. If you regularly use Excel files, not to worry, Numbers not only opens them but lets you save any file you create in a native Excel format. This way you can rest assured any Microsoft Office users will have no trouble opening and viewing your Numbers files.

Need to create an eye-catching presentation? That's where Keynote comes in. Easily make presentations for work or for school, for conferences or for pitches, for conceptual design or story boarding of any kind. Just like Numbers, Keynote plays nice with Microsoft Office as well and lets you save files in PowerPoint format if and when you need to.

All of the iWork apps support multiple export formats including PDF. The best part? Create a document on your iPhone or Mac and pick up where you left off on your iPad with iCloud sync.

Individual iWork apps are $4.99 on the iOS App Store but are made free to any new iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad owner.
