videosWe were all expecting some big things from Apple’s conference today – Mavericks, details on the new iPad and possibly iPad Mini, and so on – but I don’t think anyone was prepared for the big bombshell. I am, of course, talking about Apple’s videos.

The keynote was accentuated throughout by a series of beautifully constructed and masterfully presented videos showcasing the technology giant’s latest and greatest achievements. And what about that iPad Air video? Did you see that iPad Air video? Holy jeeze! At one point it had a truck jumping over sand dunes in it!

We won’t know how the world will receive the new iPad Air and iPad Mini until November, but I think it’s safe to say that those of us who were able to catch the live stream of the presentation will be forever changed. Apple is a fantastic hardware and software developer, but their video creation skills are nothing short of mind-blowing.

If you wept openly the moment the word “Video” popped up on the big screen, or if you had to pause the presentation for a moment to collect yourself, please chime in below!

Apple has just announced an update to their iWork suite of apps; including Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. Now all of these apps allow users to share files across all their Apple devices over iCloud. Whether it’s on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad, you can instantly toss your projects into the cloud and immediately start working on another platform. In addition, collaboration with other users is also a possibility, as was demoed with Pages earlier today. So now two users across different platforms (even PC) can work on the same document at the same time.

But of course that’s not all. The entire suite of apps is also going free later today [Editor’s Note: the iWork suite is actually going to be offered for free with the purchase of new Apple hardware. We apologize for the confusion], so what are you waiting for?

iCloud Support Added To iWork Apps

It’s kind of like Christmas for iOS device owners this week. With the huge wealth of new functionality that iOS5 brings, so the numerous app updates flow. In this case, it’s Apple’s flagship iWork applications that have profited from updates that incorporate iCloud functionality.

Numbers, Pages and Keynote have all been updated to version 1.5 adding the ability to automatically store content in iCloud and thus keep documents up to date across all the user’s iOS devices. As well as that, documents can be downloaded to a PC or Mac at https://www.icloud.com/ as a number of different useful filetypes such as Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Pages ’09, Numbers ’09, Keynote ’09 and PDF format.

In the case of Pages, voice dictation functionality has also been added to enable users to create and edit documents in iOS5 on their iPhone 4S. Keynote users can benefit from AirPlay support to enable them to show their presentations wirelessly via Apple TV.

Numerous other minor updates have also been added to the three iWork Apps. Each update is available now.

Apple today released updates to their three iWork applications, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote making them Universal.

This is a surprise move, one that we would have expected to be announced a week later durung the WWDC keynote. But these welcome updates bring some key productivity applications to the iPhone and iPod touch.

Also included in the update is a document manager in each of the applications. The document manager, possibly a pre-cursor to something we’ll see in iOS 5, allows you to move documents to and from applications via iTunes, WebDAV, or iDisk.

The price of each application remains the same at $9.99.
