Second up from SchillerNote: iWork ’09

By  |  Tuesday, January 6, 2009 at 9:56 am

Phil said he had three things, and honestly so far I’m kinda unimpressed. Well, his next subject is iWork. Here’s what’s being announced here.

Keynote: Will support “magic move” transitions, which are essentially can animate objects between two slides, movement of objects in a 3D space, new text transitions, and so forth. New themes are also available, and Keynote Remote allows the user to employ a Touch or iPhone to control presentations.

Pages: New “full screen view,” new “dynamic outline” feature in Pages, and mail merge with Numbers spreadsheet, new templates.

Numbers: New and improved formulas. Schiller seems to admit that Numbers needed a lot of help in order to make it the primary spreadsheet for people.

Overall, a muted announcement in my book. $79 seperately, $49 when purchased with a new Mac. A family pack option will also be available for $99, and users can get iLife and iWork together for $169, which would be available in mid-January.
