“Apple introduced several important improvements to its iWork for iCloud service last night,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld. “I’ve taken a look at the new collaboration, print and document management features.”
“Apple’s much improved collaboration tools are the big news,” Evans writes. “The service gains a collaborator list, collaborator cursor (and animation) and the ability to jump between collaborators.”
“With a series of additional updates to the applications within the suite promised across the next six months, alongside Apple’s stated commitment to user privacy, I expect to see Pages, Keynote and Numbers becoming more widely user as iWork is recognized as a good solution for most real-world needs,” Evans writes. “Apple still has lots of work to do, but these latest improvements show it is committed to competing with Google and Microsoft with its own unique suite, iWork.”

MacDailyNews Take: I seems like forever that whenever we mentioned Pages, Numbers or Keynote to “regular” people, they just stared back at us blankly.
Lately, though, we’re hearing more things like “I’ve used that,” “I love Pages,” “I have that on my iPad,” etc.
