Review: Apple IWork 09

01 May 09

Where iLife ‘09 plays on the fun side of the fence, iWork ‘09 is all business, offering upgrades to Pages (word processing), Numbers (spreadsheets) and Keynote (presentations).

Pros: The ability to quickly export to Word from Pages is excellent, and the suite as a whole ran a little quicker on our test Mac. Apple is also offering an online shared space at for document sharing.

Cons: There are still some parts of more complex Microsoft Office documents that Pages, Numbers and Keynote can’t convert properly. Like iLife ‘09, iWork ‘09 is a great suite that’s only been marginally tinkered with – and is that enough to justify a full upgrade?

Verdict: A good, lightweight suite, but possibly not advanced enough to justify an upgrade for many.
