Apple Announces iWorks Apps Available for iPhone/iPod Touch

Apple is extending it suite of productivity apps further down its mobile device chain today, announcing that its iWorks applications will be available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

That means that Keynote, Pages and Numbers are now available to a huge number of users outside of Mac and iPad owners. At $9.99 each and available through the App Store, Apple should be able to make a tidy sum off of its productivity apps. The apps will be available to third and fourth generation iPod Touch owners and iPhone 3GS/4 users.

iWorks was one of the original suites of applications available on the iPad. Keynote is a presentation tool that has made it onto the floor of the senate and conference stages across the world. Pages is Apple’s attempt at a mobile word processor and Numbers is the spreadsheet app for iOS devices.

If you do not feel like dropping $9.99 per iWorks app, there are alternatives, though none quite of the quality of the Apple’s native apps. Google Docs is available through the mobile browser. There are cheaper options such as GoDocs for iPhone/iPad available in the App Store for $4.99 and NotesMaster for $3.99 (with a free lite version available). A good word processor application for iPad is iA Writer, which goes for the nice low price of $.99.

Those who own iWorks applications on the iPad can extend the functionality to their other iOS devices for free. New users will have to pay.

Expect a number of press releases and announcements from Apple this week as it gears up for its World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco next week.

“Now you can use Keynote, Pages and Numbers on iPhone and iPod touch to create amazing presentations, documents and spreadsheets right in the palm of your hand,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior VP of Worldwide Product Marketing in the press release. “The incredible Retina display, revolutionary Multi-Touch interface and our powerful software make it easy to create, edit, organize and share all of your documents from iPhone 4 or iPod touch.”
