While it seemed like this was an offer with no clock on the table, we guess there are still some users out there who might be wondering if […]
10/23/2013, While we discourage piracy and advocate that users should pay for the software they use, it seems that there is a bug in the Apple Mac App Store that is allowing iWork trial users to upgrade to the entire suite for free.

09/24/2013, We’re sure there are many iOS users out there who were pretty pleased when Apple announced that the iWork apps would be free for download with new iOS device purchases, presumably to make iOS devices better for productivity which is one of the arguments Microsoft is using to make their Surface tablets more appealing.

06/01/2012, Apple originally launched iWork back in 2005 and has since been updating it on a regular basis with a gap of 1-2 years, at least until recently where iWork ’09 has not been updated since 2009, leaving many to wonder what plans Apple had for their productivity.
