Apple Brings iWork Apps to iPhone and iPod Touch

Making more news ahead of its developers conference next week, Apple said on Tuesday that it is bringing its iWork collection of productivity apps to the small screen.

Already available for the iPad, Keynote, Numbers and Pages are now available for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and the two most recent versions of the iPod touch. Each app sells for $9.99 and is a free update for those that have already purchased the iPad versions.

“The incredible Retina display, revolutionary Multi-Touch interface and our powerful software make it easy to create, edit, organize and share all of your documents from iPhone 4 or iPod touch,” Apple senior VP Phil Schiller said in a statement.

The announcement comes as Apple has also confirmed its plans to detail iCloud and the next versions of the iPhone and Mac operating systems at next week’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.

For its part, Microsoft has yet to bring most of Office to the iPhone, though it has released an iPhone version of its OneNote note-taking application. It, of course, does have a mobile version of Office for its own Windows Phone 7 operating system.
