Apple updates iWork apps with iPhone, iPod touch support 2

Apple has updated iWork for iOS adding support for the iPhone and iPod touch to the existing suite of iPad apps and adding the ability to organize documents into folders. Pages, Numbers and Keynote are now universal apps that can be used on the iPad as well as the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and third- and fourth-generation iPod touch. The iPhone and iPod touch versions provide the same features found on the iPad scaled and optimized for the smaller screen. Users can import and export documents from iWork for Mac and Microsoft Office and print documents via AirPrint. A new Smart Zoom feature has been added to Pages and Numbers to assist with working on the smaller iPhone and iPod touch screens by automatically zooming in to follow the cursor when editing text or cells and zooming back to a larger page or table view when done.

The latest versions also introduce an improved document management interface that allows users to organize files, and group them in folders using a gesture-based interface. Keynote 1.4 further adds support for the separate Keynote Remote iOS app, allowing users to remotely control a Keynote for iOS presentation from an iPhone or iPod touch. Pages 1.4 also adds the ability to change font style and size directly from the ruler when editing text. Pages, Numbers and Keynote 1.4 each require iOS 4.2.8 or later and are available from the App Store separately for $10 each; all three apps are free updates for users of the corresponding previous version. Keynote Remote for the iPhone and iPod touch is available separately for $1 and requires iOS 4.2.1 or later.
