One part of Monday’s WWDC 2013 keynote that seems to have received short shrift in the discussions of updated products is iWork.
During the keynote, iWork for iCloud — a browser-based version of Apple’s office suite — was discussed along with comments about the iOS versions of the suite. Now Apple has followed up the announcement by opening a beta of iWork for iCloud to registered developers.
While the browser-based iWork for iCloud is meant to work on Mac or PC in just about any browser, developers opening the beta web apps in Chrome are greeted with a message saying “Your browser isn’t fully supported.
For the best Pages/Keynote/Numbers for iCloud experience, use the latest version of Safari.”
For those who have been using the current version of iWork and saving documents to iCloud, all of the saved documents are immediately available for test.
The web suite will be released to the world later this year; at the present time, developers can try out the apps by logging in at beta.icloud.com.
