The beta version of iWork for iCloud, which Apple unveiled at WWDC 2013 last Monday, is now available for registered Apple developers to test out. iWork is Apple’s response to Google Drive and its stable of online editing tools like Google Docs. The service promises to offer the same browser-based experience through its own iWork apps, most notably Pages, Keynote and Numbers.
Anyone with an iOS device will be able to use iWork apps, even on non-Apple PCs. During WWDC earlier this week, Apple exec Roger Rosner previewed iWork for iCloud, noting that the cluster of work-related apps is compatible with Microsoft Office documents. Just drag and drop an iWork document into Office and keep working.
There’s still no set release date for iWork on iCloud for non-Apple developers, but the new service’s public launch will likely take place in late Q3 or even Q4 of this year.
