iWork and iLife now free with every new Mac and iOS device


Apple is making its iWork productivity apps -- Pages, Numbers and Keynote -- and iLife creativity apps -- iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand -- free with all new Mac and iOS devices.

What's more, they've been completely redesigned to take full advantage of OS X Mavericks and iOS 7. And they've all been updated to 64-bit and are integrated with iCloud,

"This is the biggest day for apps in Apple’s history," says Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. "These new versions deliver seamless experiences across devices that you can’t find anywhere else and are packed with great features like iMovie Theater, Drummer and a new unified file format for iWork documents across all your devices."

An all new iWork for Mac and iOS makes creating, editing and sharing documents easier than ever, he adds. iWork introduces a new, unified file format, delivering perfect document fidelity across Mac, iOS and iCloud, and the iWork for iCloud beta now includes support for real-time collaboration. Now you can create your document on iPad, edit it on your Mac and collaborate with friends in iWork for iCloud, even if they’re on a PC. A new user interface makes iWork even simpler to use, says Cue.

iPhoto for iOS sports a new design that’s purportedly simpler and more beautiful than ever. New tools and effects let you create more dramatic images in both color and black and white. Now you can also share your favorite images as custom slideshows that you can pause, rewind and fast forward using gestures, or order them as professional-quality prints, including panoramas, and as hard cover books that you create using Multi-Touch.

iMovie for Mac and iOS have been redesigned to make it easier than ever to browse your video library and instantly share your favorite moments. iMovie for Mac includes simplified editing tools that let you improve the look of your movie, add fun effects, and speed up or slow down your video.

iMovie for iOS brings desktop-class moviemaking to your iPhone and iPad, so you can create split screen and picture-in-picture effects or advanced audio edits in just a few taps, says Cue.. And with iMovie Theater, you can watch your shared clips, movies, and trailers on all your Apple devices, even your Apple TV. iMovie Theater requires iCloud to keep your shared content up to date across all your devices.

GarageBand for Mac has received its biggest update ever with a new look, a new Sound Library, and new features like Drummer and Smart Controls. GarageBand for iOS has been updated to match the look and feel of iOS 7 and taps the power of 64-bit to bring musicians a full recording studio with up to 32 tracks.

With iOS 7 Inter-App Audio you can record third-party music apps right into GarageBand, and AirDrop allows you to wirelessly share your song projects with other iOS users so you can work on songs together. iCloud helps keep your song projects up to date across your devices, and users can start a song on iOS and pick up where they left off using GarageBand for Mac.

Existing users running Mavericks can update their apps for free from the Mac App Store. iWork and iLife for iOS are available for free from the Apple App Store for any new device running iOS 7, and are also available as free updates for existing users. GarageBand for Mac and iOS are free for all OS X Mavericks and iOS 7 users. Additional GarageBand instruments and sounds are available for a one-time in-app purchase of US$4.99 for each platform.

Anyone afraid that throwing Transformers into the Angry Birds mix would result in a Michael Bay-level of childhood pillaging can rest easy. While Rovio’s famous fowls may be a 21st century staple, Angry Birds: Transformers wears its affection for the 80s on its sleeve. But is mere retro reverence enough to justify this crossover?
