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.
