    Default Apple Unveils iWork for iCloud


    Apple announced Monday afternoon that iWork for iCloud would make it possible to edit iWork documents through a Web browser. iWork has until now been a Mac-only software suite, but because the software can be used in a Web Browser, it will work for Mac users and PC users.

    iWork for iCloud is accessed through a Web browser, and users will have access to Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. The software will support the Microsoft Office counterparts for cross-compatibility too. Documents, whether they're from Microsoft office or iWork, are stored in the cloud so they can be accessed from any machine. Drag and drop interfaces make it easy to upload documents.

    Even though the software is accessed through a Web browser, users will still get all of the great features like animations, graphics, different fonts, text sizes, and more.

    Safari, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome will be supported by iWork for iCloud. It is available starting Monday for developers, but all users will get access to the feature later in 2013.

    And I am going to guess that this will be a subscription model as well? What about those of us that like software physically on our machines? In other words, we want to pay once and be done with it.

    Not to mention, how do you edit your work when the internet goes down?

    iWork for iCloud isn't a replacement for iWork. It's a simple way to use iWork when you aren't at a machine that can physically run iWork. iWork will still exist as software for iOS and Mac OS X.

    Apple's iCloud Web site has a lot of features that you have applications for on your Mac or iOS device, but it doesn't replace them. It's merely a way to access these features from Windows machines and other machines that don't have application versions. It also works great for computers that aren't yours because you won't have to install software on them to do what you need to do.

    Somewhat similar to Microsoft's Onlive Desktop which is also uses a cloud based approach to editing documents.

    Apple isn't getting rid of the standard iWork Suite for both Macs and iOS devices - just adding a cloud ability to them.
