iWork. Completely reimagined for iPad.
The iWork productivity applications that people know and love on the Mac — Keynote, Pages, and Numbers — have been completely redesigned for iPad. So you can create incredible presentations, word processing documents, and spreadsheets by directly touching the words and images on the large, Multi-Touch screen. And each of these apps has been designed specially for iPad, with completely new features. So while they’re simple and easy to use, they’re also the most powerful productivity apps ever built for a mobile device. They even import iWork ’09 and Microsoft Office documents and allow you to send in iWork ’09 and PDF formats. And because Keynote, Pages, and Numbers will be sold individually on the App Store, you can purchase them all at once, or add them to your iPad over time.
If you tap on the App Store icon, it’ll take you to a special section of the Store that has apps specifically designed for iPad. You can also browse through iPhone and iPod touch apps, including entertainment apps, productivity apps, social networking apps, games, and more. And you can buy and download them wirelessly, right from the iPad. No matter what you need, there’s bound to be an app for it.
