iWork iPad apps gain export to Excel, PowerPoint

updated 10:45 am EDT, Thu September 23, 2010

iDisk, WebDAV support also shared in common

Apple has released v1.2 updates for the trio of iWork apps available for the iPad. Critically, Numbers documents can now be exported as Excel files, while Keynote presentations can be exported in PowerPoint format. All three apps -- including Pages -- have been updated with the ability to group and ungroup objects, as well as upload to a MobileMe iDisk or miscellaneous WebDAV services.

App-specific updates include the ability to open TXT files in Pages via Mail, or CSV files in Numbers through Mail and other apps. Pages can finally display word count, and Keynote can use audio attached to Keynote '09 presentations. The iPad Keynote has also gained Lens Flare, Spin and Wipe build animations, along with Revolving Door, Swoosh and Wipe slide transitions.

Each app is a $10 download from the App Store.

    ODF?

    Any chance of any of these apps allowing the use of OpenDocumentFormat files?

    Re: ODF

    Nope. There's no reason to, since programs that can read ODF files (Open Office, basically) can read the MS files. So you're basically just adding more code for no benefit except to say "Look, I didn't use an MS format to transfer this file!"

    Of course, what you should be asking is "Why doesn't Apple just use ODF for their files instead of building yet another proprietary 'solution'? For interchangeability it would be far smoother in that vein then needing lousy 'export' options.
