Apple limits iWork for iCloud.com access due to ‘Overwhelming response’
As many of us are aware, iWork for iCloud was first announced at this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference, pitted to take Apple’s productivity suite to new heights, offering access on both Mac and PC’s using Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Safari. As it’s browser based, it has added portability whilst replicating most of the functionality of Apple’s existing desktop iWork offerings.
Too Popular for it’s Own Good?
After opening iWork for iCloud in mid-July, Apple drip fed access to the service to users, and after the ublic debut, started making it available to some non-developers. However, due to an overwhelming response to the new iWork platform, new restrictions have fallen into play. These seem to reach across the entire suite, with Pages, Keynote, and Numbers all informing users of the “overwhelming response.” Presentations are still able to be stored on iCloud, but unfortunately users are still being given the “Check Back Soon” message.
Apple’s notice gives no notice on when the service might become more widely available.
Hurry up Apple! We’re growing impatient!
