icloud beta

Alongside OS X Mavericks and iOS 7, Apple showed off its new web-based ‘iWork for iCloud’ software suite during its Monday keynote.

iWork for iCloud exists totally in the cloud, meaning that it’s accessible via Safari, Internet Explorer and other browsers. The web-based app suite includes Pages, Numbers and Keynote, and editing and viewing documents in these apps looks and feels almost identical to their native counterparts—animations and other UI elements included.
