Review: Apple's iWork for iCloud is elegant but limited
Apple's online productivity suite is exceptionally polished and easy to use, but lacking in word processing and spreadsheet featuresFollow @woodyleonhard
If you aren't overly concerned about Office compatibility and you only work with a few documents, iWork for iCloud is an excellent choice. Experienced Office users will have to unlearn a lot they "know" about documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, but the clean iWork interface really shows through.
Further, iWork is free for all computers bought during or after September 2013. That isn't just iWork for iCloud, mind you. The offer also extends to the downloadable iWork suite for OS X and iWork for iOS, both of which are available in Apple's app stores.
As iWork for iCloud is still officially in "beta," it's entirely possible that Apple will charge for personal or business use in the future. But as it stands right now, iWork for iCloud appears to be free for all. If only Apple would bake in some decent file handling.
