Docs, spreadsheets and presentations for your Apple gadget

Docs, spreadsheets and presentations for your Apple gadget

iWork is Apple's productivity suite for its Mac computers. It includes the typical software you'd expect from an office suite. And now it's available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

It has Pages, a word processor. There's Numbers, which is spreadsheet software. And it includes Keynote, the equivalent of Microsoft's PowerPoint.


You can download each of the apps, Pages, Numbers and Keynote, separately. That lets you pick and choose exactly which programs you need.

Getting these programs together used to cost you $30. But now you can try out iWork for iCloud beta absolutely free!

The catch is that you have to have an iCloud account. But chances are that if you have an Apple gadget you already have an account. If you don't, you can sign up for one here.

To check out these free apps, sign in to your iCloud account. You should see them as soon as you sign in.

Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are still separate, but you will notice a yellow strip across the top left-hand corner of the apps with the word "Beta."

Simply click or touch the icons and they will open.

Note that if you search for iWork, Pages, Numbers or Keynote in the Apple App Store, you will only find the paid versions.
