With the release of Pages 1.7, Keynote 1.7 and Numbers 1.7 — iWork for iOS v1.7 by any other name — Apple gets closer to feature parity with the Mac version

With the release of Pages 1.7, Keynote 1.7 and Numbers 1.7 — iWork for iOS v1.7 by any other name — Apple is getting closer to offering feature parity with the Mac version. That said, given the dearth of meaningful desktop desktop iWork updates for about two years, one hopes Apple gets the job done soon.

• Pages 1.7
— Use Change Tracking to track changes to body text in a document
— Accept and reject individual changes as you review a document
— Import Pages and Microsoft Word documents with change tracking and continue to track changes to body text
— Preserve tracked changes in documents exported in Microsoft Word or Pages format
— Preserve calculations in tables when importing from and exporting to Pages for Mac
— Add reflections to shapes
— Lock and unlock objects

• Keynote 1.7
— Import and export all Microsoft PowerPoint and Keynote for Mac slide sizes
— Import and export presentation themes, complete with master slides and preset styles
— Play back all Keynote action builds including Move, Rotate, Scale, and Opacity
— Add new slide transitions including Shimmer and Sparkle
— Preserve calculations in tables when importing from and exporting to Keynote for Mac
— Add reflections to shapes
— New print layouts include options to print with presenter notes, with builds, and without backgrounds
— Lock and unlock objects

• Numbers 1.7
— Hide and unhide rows and columns
— Import and export Numbers for Mac spreadsheets with filters, and turn filters on and off
— Preserve rich text in tables when importing and exporting
— Add reflections to shapes
— Lock and unlock objects

And, if you want to create/edit/share/sync iWork for iOS 1.7 documents with a Mac, you will need iWork 9.3 (download), which comes to market with a single purpose — to add support for iWork for iOS 1.7 apps.

Give me tautology or give me, I don’t know, something new…
