Mac’s cutting-edge interface and user’s experience emphasis (let’s not forget the sleek and stylish design) makes it a favorite device in the graphic design (and animation) world. Apple is now eyeing the corporate white collared employees by improvising their office software and the result is iWork ’09. It is an office software for Mac OS X and iOS operating systems.
The first version of iWork was released in the year 2005. It bundled Keynote (a presentation program which was previously sold only as standalone application) and Page (page layout and word processing application). Apple release iWork ’08 in 2008 which included a spreadsheet application. 2009’s release iWork ’09 allowed documents to be shared online which could be done through iWork’s website (later replaced by iCloud).

PC usually features instant messaging programs and email in their office software. However, Email or instant message programs are not available in iWork (’09 version) as it comes in-built in Apple’s OS X and is pre-installed on all Mac computers. This eliminates the requirement to install any additional software. Everything about iWork is simple, well thought of and easy to use. The smooth graphical interface is what makes iWork so straight forward. Apple knows how to keep simple and does an excellent job with its every device.
