Apple(s aapl) on Thursday released a number of updates to its iWork suite of apps for Mac, iOS and iCloud. Chief among these updates is the addition of password-protected sharing for documents across iOS and iCloud.
Apple’s iWork suite includes Keynote, Numbers and Pages. Users can now assign passwords to documents on iWork for iCloud, then share those documents with other iWork users on iCloud or iOS. There’s also a new list view for iCloud that allows you to more easily view documents, presentations and spreadsheets that others have shared with you. And you can now use keyboard shortcuts for rotating, resizing and reposition objects.
There are some other notable changes to iWork for Mac as well, like the ability to sort by multiple columns or a subset of rows in Numbers. There are also new transitions and better presenter display options in Keynote.
Not to be left out, iWork for iOS now allows you to view and edit spreadsheets in landscape with Numbers, and gives you the ability to use a remote feature to control slideshows on other devices with Keynote.
I’d still like to see the addition of track changes, but this is good news for iWork users all around.
