The iWork Suite on the iOS has now finally found a home on the iPhone and iPod Touch, thanks to the recent universal update. Already considered to be among the most polished productivity apps on the platform, iWork users will no longer have to rely on their iPads when creating or editing documents while on-the-go. Aside from the universal support, the apps also include improved document management, allowing users to easily sort and organize docs into folders. Pages, Numbers and Keynote are sold separately for $9.99, but as always, if you already own these apps, the update can be downloaded for free. Full press release after the break.
The entire iWork Suite has been updated for better online support via iDisk or WebDAV and better Microsoft document handling in the latest 1.2 update. I spend hours and hours with Pages every day and notably less time with either Keynote and Numbers, but I’m confident in saying that Apple’s software options are leagues ahead of competing productivity and business apps, yet still behind their desktop analogues. For serious typers, Pages is a better option than Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite (TMA Review). It’s faster, handles tables and images better, and now, has iDisk support along with word counting! The same goes for Keynote and Numbers, Apple’s presentation and spreadsheet apps.
The updates are free for customers who already own each app. Grab ‘em below:

Apple’s iPhone 4 release has been fraught with leaks. Another badboy appeared earlier today: a sweet iPhone 4 marketing render showed a dialogue suggesting that email files can be opened in Keynote, a component of iWork. Since Apple outed the info themselves, there’s no reason to doubt that the productivity suite will come to the iPad’s less portly siblings. Originally, Apple’s own iPhone’s Mail page leaked the info. Sadly, it’s all been plugged by a neat iBooks graphic.
The iWork suite can already be purchased for the iPad at 9.99$ per app.
