• Apple's iWork for iCloud Now Available to "Anyone" on iCloud Beta Web Site

    Apple has tweaked its iCloud beta Web page to display a banner showing the text, "Now anyone can use Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for iCloud. Create your free Apple ID today," as first pointed out by 9to5Mac this morning.

    What this means is that using iWork for iCloud on Apple's beta Web site no longer requires owning an Apple device and that new users will soon be able to create an Apple ID directly from the regular iCloud Web site without owning an Apple device to get started with iWork for iCloud immediately.

    This will be a great way for Apple to lure users from the Android market, or other competing markets, over to the Apple ecosystem. Notably, iOS users can use many of Google's services online too without owning an Android device, so this appears to be a step up in terms of Apple's competition.

    It is also important to point out that all iCloud accounts set up in this way without an Apple device will get 1GB of online iCloud storage space for free for working with documents in the various iWork for iCloud application suite. This compares to the 5GB of free iCloud space that is given to those who purchase a new Apple device and begin using iCloud.

    If you don't own an Apple device, you can head over to Apple's [utl=https://beta.icloud.com/]iCloud beta Web page[/url] to see what this is all about.
