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.
Now that iOS 4.2 is officially available for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users, Apple has also updated their iWork Suite of Apps for the iPad — Pages, Keynote and Numbers. All these productivity apps now support Multitasking and wireless printing via AirPrint, along with other improvements. If you already rely on these solid apps on your iPad for work (and pleasure), be sure to grab these free updates. Full list of changes after the cut.
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:

Join the long list of people waiting for a proper Microsoft Office editing suite. Take a number. Have a seat. And maybe a coffee. Several good options have made appearance at the App Store but none are quite ready to be dubbed true Office Editors.
QuickOffice, a suite a suite comprised of Word and Excel editors, takes charge of a few great features of the iDevice and makes Office editing possible along with file sharing and creation. To attest the fact, this review has entirely been written on my iPod touch.
