Apple announced free and updated iWork and iLife suites
Both iWork and iLife suites are now available and free with the purchase of new iOS and Mac devices, as it was clear at Apple’s event today, in San Francisco. The new versions of Apple’s iWork and iLife have been updated to include 64-bit compatibility and new features.
Apple’s suite of creative software iLife will get the 64-bit compatible apps for both iOS and OS X with a new looking iPhoto. In case you have an iPad, you’ll be also able to create and order books. Other apps in iLife will include updated cleaner look for iMovie as well as easier video browsing sharing for iPad, and GarageBand with up to 16 tracks on 32-bit devices or 32 on 64-bit ones for Mac. There’ll also be a new Drummer feature that will help the users compose their own music.
Document editing Pages, along with other applications Numbers and Keynote also get updates and also go free for the office suite iWork and will support online collaboration through iCloud, meaning they will include new collaboration tools so the users can easily edit their documents on iWork for iCloud at the same time.
On iPad, Pages gets a new toolbar for quicker access to formatting options, as for the Mac-s, there’ll be a right-positioned content sensitive bar with text-editing and image-editing tools. New features for Numbers include new spreadsheets and interactive charts. Keynote also has been updated with new effects and animations for more realistic physics and another new feature is the object-based animation making that comes to both iPhone and iPad.
All these apps for iWork and iLife are now free with the new Maverick OS X. Enjoy.
