Smartphones available in last couple of years were looked up on to support the desktop based productivity suites like Microsoft Office or OpenOffice. Just like Microsoft has implemented tighter integration of Microsoft Office to Windows Phone 7, Apple too has done the same in its arena.
Apple productivity suite iWork’s applications – Keynote, Pages and Numbers – were already supported on iPad since last year. Now the company has made the Keynote, Pages and Numbers app available for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch (3 and 4 generation) at $9.99 each (Rs 450 approximately).
With this, users can easily export or import their work files from iWork for Mac/iPad and Microsoft Office suite. Users can easily work on their files and share them without leaving the apps.
Keynote is an equivalent to Microsoft PowerPoint and lets users create wonderful presentations including charts and transitions with their fingertips. Create, edit and organise all your data with tables, functions, and charts in the spreadsheets using the Numbers app which is similar to the Microsoft Excel.
Work on text documents imported from Microsoft Word using Pages application. The smart zoom feature in the iOS platform version of iWork apps allows users to zoom in to the text as well as cells for proper data editing and viewing.
Keynote, Numbers and Pages for iPhone and iPod touch also allow taking printout of the files wirelessly using the AirPrint technology.
Today, we can say that Apple has added one more feature to its hat of creating iPhone as a modern smartphone that truly supports all productivity features.
