iWork was announced at the WWDC 2013 putting a shot across the bows at Microsoft for not releasing Office onto the iPad. Keeping to a minimal interface iWork for iCloud certainly looks interesting and developers and get their paws on it today
As you would imagine iWork for iCloud is just a beta at the moment so whilst it’s fine for testing, some erratic behaviour is expected and not all functionality is available just yet.
Some features of iWork documents you created on your iOS device or Mac are not yet supported and will be removed when you open them in iWork for iCloud beta. Some features will also behave differently until they are supported.
To preserve the original version of your document, select “Open Copy” when you are asked whether you want to open the original version of the file or to create a copy.
The document you open will update back to your other devices, so anything that iWork for iCloud beta removes (
see list below) from your document when you open it in iWork for iCloud beta will also be removed when the document is updated on your other devices.
