Apple iWork '09 includes:
- Pages '09

Pages '09. You have a beautiful way with words.
Pages is both a streamlined word processor and an easy-to-use page layout tool. It allows you to be a writer one minute and a designer the next, always with a perfect document in the works.
- Full-screen view - See your work without distractions.
When your desktop is cluttered, it can be hard to focus on what you're writing. Now Pages '09 lets you see your document full screen. With a click, distractions instantly disappear and your words become the most important thing on the screen.
- Dynamic outlines - Organise and structure ideas.
It's easier to write when your ideas are structured. The new Outline mode helps you organise your thoughts so your writing stays on track. Create a detailed outline with multiple levels. Collapse and expand topics and subtopics. Drag and drop to reorganise. Inline images and movies appear in your outline either as thumbnails or at actual size.
- Mail merge with Numbers - Personalise your documents.
Now it's even easier to address invitations, create invoices, personalise letters and build mailing lists. Enhanced mail merge in Pages '09 works directly with a Numbers table or Address Book. In just a few clicks, you can merge your contacts or any type of data and easily create customised documents.
- Template Chooser - More templates. Even faster browsing.
Find inspiration for your writing or design project even faster. Over 180 Apple-designed templates are included -- professional letters, detailed lab reports, beautiful cards, modern flyer layouts and more. Use the new Template Chooser to quickly skim, preview and even resize each thumbnail. Choose one and you're off to a great start.
- More ways to share - Open, save and email Microsoft Word files.
Share your Pages documents with anyone on a Mac or PC. You can open Microsoft Word files in Pages and save your Pages documents as Word files. Thanks to powerful graphics tools in Pages, it's easy to make Word documents look great. Pages also lets you export your documents as PDF files. With the new email option, send Pages, Word or PDF files right from Pages using Mac OS X Mail. Or upload your work to iWork.com Public Beta, Apple's new document-sharing service. Reviewers can view your document on the web, make comments and download it in a format that works best for them.
Numbers '09. Finally, data has its day.
With great-looking templates, easy-to-create formulas, and dynamic tables and charts, spreadsheets suddenly make perfect sense.
- Easy formulas - Create formulas with ease.
What comes naturally to some now comes automatically to everyone. Writing formulas is easy in Numbers '09. Over 250 functions are included; just click and choose one. Along with each function is a clear explanation of the formula and built-in help. You can even assemble formulas using visual placeholders for each variable. Just click a placeholder, then choose a value to include in your formula.
- Formula List view - See every calculation in one place.
A spreadsheet contains many sheets, tables, numbers and formulas. How do you keep track of them all? With the new Formula List view, you can see every calculation in your spreadsheet at one time. Click the Formula List button in the toolbar to see the list and then jump to a specific formula. You can also search for formulas, functions or cell references.
- Table categories - Group and organise your data.
When there are large sets of data in one spreadsheet, it can be difficult to make sense of it all. With one click, you can now group rows based on data in any column and create table categories. Each category includes a summary row. Using just the summary row, it's easy to collapse, expand and rearrange the categories. Add functions to each summary row -- subtotals, averages, count, miniumum and maximum -- to organise your data even more.
- Advanced charts - Create even more impressive charts.
Numbers '09 features even more impressive options for 2D charts. Combine line, column and area series in a single mixed chart. Create 2-axis charts with different value scales. Easily apply trendlines and error bars. With just one click, your data is more compelling.
Now Numbers, Pages and Keynote work together to keep all your data on the same page. Create charts in Numbers and paste them into Pages documents or Keynote presentations. They'll stay linked to the original data in Numbers. Even if the chart styles, textures, colours and fonts are different, the data is the same. When you make a change to your data, update your linked charts with a click.
- Template Chooser - Find the perfect template even faster.
Need some spreadsheet-making inspiration? Professional-looking, Apple-designed templates make it easy to start. Numbers '09 brings you 12 new ideas and designs -- 30 templates total. Choose a checking register, savings calculator or retirement savings template. Create a baby record or garden journal. Keep track of your weight and workouts. Explore the possibilities.
- More ways to share - Open, save and email Microsoft Excel files.
Share your Numbers spreadsheets with anyone on a Mac or PC. You can open Microsoft Excel files in Numbers and save your Numbers spreadsheets as Excel files. Thanks to powerful graphics tools in Numbers, it's easy to make Excel spreadsheets look great. Numbers also lets you export your spreadsheets as PDF files. With the new email option, send Numbers, Excel or PDF files right from Numbers using Mac OS X Mail. Or upload your work to iWork.com Public Beta, Apple's new document-sharing service. Reviewers can view your spreadsheet on the web, make comments and download it in a format that's right for them.
Keynote '09. Crowd pleaser.
Create your presentation in Keynote, and you'll be a hard act to follow. Powerful yet easy-to-use tools and dazzling effects put the show in slideshow.
- Magic Move - Apply a captivating transition with a single click.
The new Magic Move feature lets you add a sophisticated animation using a quick and simple process. Just select Magic Move as the transition and a repeated object -- say, your company's logo -- automatically changes location, scale, opacity and rotation across consecutive slides. The result is a beautifully executed effect that will amaze your audience (and you as well).
- Theme Chooser - Find the perfect theme with enhanced previews.
Now choosing the right theme for your presentation is easier than ever. An enhanced Theme Chooser lets you resize theme thumbnails to see the included fonts, colours and textures more clearly. View all the slide designs associated with a theme simply by skimming over them. And Keynote '09 adds eight new themes to offer you even more choices. Choose Showroom for a clean, polished feel or Kyoto with its look of serenity.
- More transitions - Amaze your audience with new text and object transitions.
Let your words and graphics really play onscreen. In just a few clicks, you can apply text and object transitions that look as if they were created by your own special effects team. Make the words from one slide morph into those on the next. Then watch a graphic zoom toward the crowd, and change into a completely different image.
- Chart animations - Add movement and texture to your 3D charts.
Make your charts as impressive as the rest of your presentation. New 3D textures and animations add depth and movement and a touch of fun. Insert a pie chart with a bevelled edge or animate a bar chart using Crane or Radial effects.
- Keynote Remote - Use your iPhone or iPod touch as a controller.
Keynote Remote lets you use your iPhone or iPod touch to control your presentation from anywhere in the room using Wi-Fi. See your slide with notes or both the current slide and the next slide in the palm of your hand. Just swipe to advance.
- More ways to share - Email your presentation as PowerPoint or PDF.
Now there are more ways to share your presentation. Use the new Share menu to instantly email your presentation using Mac OS X Mail. Keep the size of your presentation in check while preserving the quality of your graphics with image and movie optimisation.
