Pages, Number and Keynote are now in the cloud

iWork on iCloud

You can still find the symbols for Pages, Numbers and Keynote with a thick yellow "BETA" banderole, but at least all [iCloud users-> icloud] can now try out this web software. This free Office-Light-Version from Apple should work with the common browsers: Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer (what kind of one was that again?!?). Now that these iWork stories can now also be used online for free, many Mac users are of course wondering whether they will soon get the standalone apps on iOS and Mac for free. If you want a non-binding statement here, you are welcome to use the seething [rumor mill-> geruechtekueche]. I just stay here and visit Pages in iCloud...

iWork on iCloud

With the latest iCloud update, the beta versions of Pages, Numbers and Keynote can now also be found in the cloud.

Anyone who plunges into Pages in the cloud will first be made aware that they can currently only expect control buttons in English. The localization will certainly still be done when the whole thing is lifted from beta status. What pops up next to me after trying to open a Pages template: "Your browser is not fully supported! Use the latest version of Pages to ensure the best user experience with Safari for iCloud." Huh ?! Should I be using the latest version of Pages? I just called it up - or is there anything newer than the online version? I suppose they want to tell me not to use Firefox and prefer to use Safari instead. I assume that the warning notices still have to be de-betat a bit.

Pages in iCloud

Pages is now also available in the iCloud and welcomes the user warmly.

Otherwise I have to say that the whole thing already makes a good impression. I dragged and dropped pictures, changed fonts and did similar things and despite my lame DSL, which I also had to bother with backing up a complete website via [FTP-> ftp], it went very quickly. I am curious how it will be when there is no more beta in front of it!
