Apple: Apple iWork '09 Looks Slick, Adds Useful Features
The Apple iWork '09 productivity suite-which includes Keynote (presentations), Pages (word processing) and Numbers (spreadsheet)-was released at Macworld in January. On March 26, Apple released Update 1 for iWork '09, which is described by the company as a recommended update. eWEEK Labs' Cameron Sturdevant has been cutting over to the Macintosh platform since the conference, including using iWork for day-to-day work. The following screens illustrate some of the new features in iWork, many of which enhance the presentation of information on the screen. That said, the feature Sturdevant welcomes most is the ability to send a file via e-mail from any of the suite's appsa complicated process in the previous version of the product. Otherwise, the enhancements to iWork '09 are evolutionary changes that enhance the visual representation of data and clear up clutter.
