It looks like another web service will be shut down in the coming months. Earlier, Microsoft announced that its Windows Mobile Marketplace will be taken offline in May, and now Apple has informed its iWork.com users that the iWork.com beta service will be shutting down effective July 31st, 2012. It looks like there is no place for the service anymore since Apple now has iCloud which can pretty much do the same things.
On July 31st, you will no longer be able to access your documents on the iWork.com website or view them on the web, so be sure to download anything you want to keep before that. Head over to Apple’s website for more details. Now, if only Apple offered a service for helping people migrate their documents from iWork to iCloud – it owns both services after all.
