Apple updates iWork apps for iPad

Apple has released updates to its iWork suite of applications for the iPad. The updates generally improve performance and reliability across all three applications and improve compatibility with importing and exporting Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint documents in their respective applications. The updates also add support for French, German, Japanese, Dutch, Italian, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Spanish. Pages 1.1 now displays the toolbar and ruler and automatically fits documents to the page width when working in landscape orientation. Numbers 1.1 improves reliability when importing Numbers ‘09 spreadsheets and improves compatibility with pasting information in from Keynote and Pages. Keynote 1.1 now provides an option to show additional alignment guides at smaller intervals when moving items and improves reliability with Keynote ‘09 and Microsoft Powerpoint presentations. All three iWork applications remain available on the U.S. App Store only at this time, are priced at $10 each and are a free update for existing users.

The updates are great.  Pages is even better now, and Keynote remains a fun way to make presentations.

“Just wait until WWDC and see what Steve pulls out of his pants. Then we’ll know if this has been a disinformation campaign or if Apple has developed butterfingers when it comes to hanging on to prototypes.”

I’d rather NOT see what Steve Jobs pulls out of his pants, thank you very much.

I had been hoping that this first update would include cloud computing support. Nope; i still have to export or e-mail. Sigh.

Printing from an iPad is retarded, like the nuclear powered pencil, the technology to do it precludes the need to do it, why waste trees when you have email, web posting and iPad? Be responsible and don’t print!

Well… Let me see… I just used my iPad to renew my vehicle registration online, make a purchase, or find an idea for dinner. I would like to print the temporary registration card, receipt, or recipe (unless you’re fine with the idea of propping your $400+ toy up next to the stove while you dice and slice).  The iPad is a lot of good things, but one thing it is not is an excuse to never have to print. Dumb excuses for a truly glaring bit of missing functionality is the only thing that’s “retarded”.
