Apple’s iWork applications to be completely free.
During today’s press conference, after showing off the camera application for the upcoming iOS 7, Mr. Federighi stepped off of the stage and Mr. Cook stepped back up.
Mr. Cook’s first task upon reclaiming the stage was to speak about iWork, the iOS 7’s productivity software. He assured those in attendance that it will contain Keynote, Pages, and Numbers apps, and that it will remain available on the iPhone and iPad.
Said Mr. Cook, “No other platform has any apps like these.” He went on to assure customers that all of these apps, as well as the iPhoto and iMovie applications, are all completely free and can be downloaded on any new iPhone or iPad. This statement brought loud applause from those in the audience.
Is Mr. Cook’s statement about the other platforms correct, or are there indeed similar applications out there and he’s just trying to make the company look better than it is?
