Another year, another release of iWork . This time, though, with full iPadsupport. Yes, Apple showed off iWork 2010 at its big press conference today, and the updates are about what you’d expect from the application suite: incremental and filled with one or two things that make you say, “Wow, neat.” That being the multi-touch support.
The three applications that make up iWork—Numbers, Pages, and Keynote—will be sold separately for $10 a pop on the iTunes Store. So, if you only want Keynote, if for no other reason than to makes a slide-show presentation using your fingers, then you’ll only be out $10.
Of the three, Pages seems to benefit the least from the multi-touch. Plain old text entry does just fine with a keyboard.
And yes, all three applications will be available for non-iPad Macs.
We’re guessing the new iWork will be released alongside the iPad, but hard info is a little hard to come by right now. Let the dust settle for a little bit.
