Apple’s suite of iWork apps for the iPad and iOS – the Keynote, Numbers, and Pages apps – have been updated to improve iCloud support and instant document sync with their companion apps on the latest version of Mac OS X, Mountain Lion.
Here’s the detail on the enhanced iCloud sync support. It’s taken from the Pages update change log, but it’s virtually identical for each of the three apps:
Pages 1.6.1 works with iCloud to make documents automatically available between your iOS device and Pages on your Mac*. Changes made to a document on one device are instantly available on the other.
*Requires Pages 4.2 or later installed on OS X Mountain Lion
I haven’t upgraded to Mountain Lion yet on my MacBook Pro – as I’m going to give it a few days to watch out for any major issues and make sure that all my most essential apps are fully compatible. So I haven’t been able to try out these updates and see how well they work as yet. If you’ve updated to Mountain Lion and updated your iPad iWork apps I’d love to hear how the new document sync is working for you.
