Apple has just pushed out an update to all three of their iWork apps for iPhone, iPad, and Mac: Pages, Keynote, and Numbers. The iPhone and iPad versions now have improved capability with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint as well as as the Mac versions of the iWork apps. iWork for Mac has simply been updated to support the new versions of the iOS iWork apps.
In Pages, you can now use Change Tracking to track changes to a bod text in a document, accept and reject individual changes when reviewing a document, and all these changes (and calculations) will be preserved with exported in Microsoft World or Pages format. You can also add reflections to shapes and lock/unlock objects.
In Numbers, now you can hide and unhide rows and columns (great news for me as a teacher!), import and export Numbers for Mac spreadsheets with filters and turn them on/off, preserve rich text in tables when importing and exporting. And just as in Pages, you can also add reflections to shapes and lock/unlock objects.
In Keynote, you can now import and export all Powerpoint and Keynote slide sizes and themes, play back all Keynote action builds including Move, Rotate, Scale, and Opacity, and new slide transitions including Shimmer and Sparkle, preserve calculations when importing and exporting to Keynote for Mac, and the option to print with present notes, with builds, and without backgrounds. Of course, you can also add reflections to shapes and lock/unlock objects just like you now can with Pages and Numbers.
I'm very excited about the compatibility improvements with iWork for Mac and really hope a lot of the errors I see when importing to my iPad go away. Has anyone had a chance to give any of these a test drive? Pleased with the updates?
