Apple iWork apps now on iPhone and iPod touch

With its Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC) around the corner, it seems that Apple's clearing out any last minute business before the main event begins. And thus, iWork, the suite of applications that have been available on iPad since the tablet's introduction, now come in iPhone and iPod touch flavours.

The new, universal versions of Keynote, the presentation creation software, Pages, the word processor, and Numbers, for spreadsheets, are now available on the App Store at £5.99 each. Existing owners need only update their apps to use them across devices.

Documents created with all of the apps can also be used on the Mac edition of iWork, and in Microsoft Office. They also each have AirPrint functionality to allow users to print files wirelessly on a compatible printer.

Apple is also keen to point out that Keynote Remote (to control presentations from an iOS device) is also available on the App Store for 59p.

“Now you can use Keynote, Pages and Numbers on iPhone and iPod touch to create amazing presentations, documents and spreadsheets right in the palm of your hand,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “The incredible Retina display, revolutionary Multi-Touch interface and our powerful software make it easy to create, edit, organise and share all of your documents from iPhone 4 or iPod touch.”

But then, of course, he would.

Naturally, we expect bigger announcements from Apple early next week. Check Pocket-lint often to keep up to date.
