When the latest version of iWork was release two weeks ago it became obvious that many of the items and features we’ve grown to love were excluding from the software. This isn’t much different from past releases but so many popular features seemed to be dropped in what has to be in the name of continuity between iOS and OSX versions of the software. Well, that could all change very soon. It seems that Apple is looking to make some significant improvements and feature releases to iWork within the next 6 months. You can take a look at the official statement – http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6049?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US#!.
Some changes include a customized toolbar for each app, managing pages and sections from thumbnail view in Pages, revert to old transitions in Keynote. While these features are probably nice to have. I don’t believe any of them are the main features users are truly deeply missing, such as the RTF support.
What do you think about the newest version of iWork? Will these changes make a difference?
