“If you have iWork ‘09 and you have any need to collaborate with people, you should be using iWork.com,” Peter Cohen reports for The Loop. “Apple’s recently sweetened the pot with some enhancements that make it safer and easier to use than ever.”
“iWork.com is an online service currently in public beta that dovetails with iWork, Apple’s suite of page layout/word processing, spreadsheet and presentation software it sells for $79. Available for free with 1GB of online storage capacity, iWork.com lets you share files you create in iWork with Mac and PC users alike — they access Web-based versions of your documents,” Cohen reports.
“iWork ‘09 was updated earlier this week with numerous enhancements to each of the individual applications, along with changes to the iWork.com beta service itself,” Cohen reports. “New to the service is fully automatic 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL)-based encryption and document password protection.”
Cohen reports, “Another key improvement involves your ability to invite other users to check out your documents… iWork.com now sends the message directly instead of through Mail.”
