• Apple Employees Can Now Start Testing iWork for iCloud While in Beta

    At the WWDC 2013 keynote, one of the major things Apple addressed was iWork for iCloud. The feature allows any iCloud user to log into iCloud.com through a Web browser on any PC or Mac to access iWork applications like Pages, Numbers, and Keynote.

    The feature is currently in beta and developers were able to begin testing iWork for iCloud directly from the iCloud Web site just three days after the unveiling at WWDC 2013. Now, Apple is reportedly allowing access to iWork for iCloud for all Apple employees as indicated by this e-mail via 9to5Mac:

    iWork has always been the best way to be productive on the Mac. And iWork for iOS makes it easy to create beautiful documents on iPad and iPhone. Now with iWork for iCloud we’re bringing Pages, Numbers, and Keynote to the web — so you can access your documents anywhere from a Mac or PC browser. iWork for iCloud beta is currently limited to Apple Developer Program members, but we’d also like to make this service available to Apple employees for personal use. To enable the beta in your iCloud account, just click Get Started and follow the steps outlined.
    The e-mail outlines how the feature was limited to developers only and how Apple would like employees to begin using the software for personal use. The e-mail also explains how employees can get started. The more people that are testing the software, the more bugs can be reported and the quicker the software’s bugs can be fixed.

    iWork for iCloud is very feature-filled, almost just like iWork itself for the Mac or iOS, except that because it works out of a Web browser, it can run on multiple platforms including Windows. Notably, Apple never created a Windows version of iWork, so this is a big advantage for iWork users that need access to their files when a Windows computer is the only thing in range. The software will be compatible with Safari, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome and will support Microsoft Office documents.
