Pushes users to Mac App Store
Apple has removed trial versions of Aperture and the iWork suite from its website, reports observe. In both cases, users are now being asked to visit the Mac App Store and pay for full products. "The trial version of iWork is no longer supported. But you can easily purchase Keynote, Pages, and Numbers from the Mac App Store to start creating beautiful presentations, documents, and spreadsheets today," the US iWork page reads.
Aperture 3 is $80, and the three iWork apps (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote) are $20 each. Some international versions of the Apple website -- such as the Italian one -- may still have trial pages up, but the downloads may fail and still bring visitors back to a page about buying at the Mac App Store. With the trials gone, there is no longer a way of testing the apps without paying first.
