Apple updates iWork for iCloud

Apple is constantly making little tweaks to iWork for iCloud so the productivity suite is continuously improving. The most recent update enabled users to share documents up to 1GB in size with up to 100 people.

This week Apple updated iWork (Pages, Numbers and Keynote) for iCloud enabling better connectivity between desktop and mobile versions.

The idea here is that it will make the transition between working on your desktop in any of the programmes, to switching to working on your mobile via iCloud, easier and more streamlined. Alongside the contents of the documents, you will be able to choose whether or not to show guidelines, amount of page zoom, last selected view etc are all automatically synced. This means it will be so much easier to pick up where you left off, regardless of where you are using the document.

Contextual tips for keyboard shortcuts have been added (such as cut, copy and paste), and can be activated in a pop up window using right click, as with the desktop version – seen below (Picture courtesy of Apple Insider). The masking, resizing and cropping tool can also be accessed using the right click on the graphic.

The update will suggest the most recent screen name for users when sharing, making things a little easier.

It is currently being rolled out within different regions, but should be available to anyone with an iCloud account in the near future.
