iWork for iPhone hands-on

Apple announced that their popular iWork suite of apps are now compatible on iPhone and iPod touch devices a little earlier today, and you know we had to get up close and personal with them. For starters, the apps are full versions of the existing app that ran on the iPad, and even from browsing through the included sample guides in their respective apps and spending a few minutes creating new ones, it’s clear that there’s a level of capability here that just isn’t seen on mobile devices, let alone smartphones. The transition effects in Keynote are nothing short of amazing, and then when you actually take a second to realize this is happening on your mobile phone — it’s just mind-boggling. Apple really just set the bar for what applications on a phone can do. Again. All three apps are now available in the App Store as universal apps which support iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads for $9.99 each.

P.S. One note about Keynote: the app only works in landscape mode, even if you have the portrait orientation locked.
