Having just got back from a great trip I thought I would tell you what my first impressions of iWork are. I own my own Training and Development Consultancy and so I produce at least 1 presentation a week for clients. I invested in Keynote but found it was limited but I supported it it as I hoped Apple would improve it. Well it took a while but they have done an excellent job with it. The most annoying aspect for me in Keynote was the lack of ability to link build in and build out of different objects. That has now been fixed. I only played with keynote 2 for about 15 mins, but was very impressed. I spent about 30 mins on Pages. I have been waiting for a program like this for a long time. Is it a simple to use program, yes and no. It is better than I hoped for a first version but it is not as intuitive as it could be. Many of the options in the inspector panels seem to be in the wrong place. For example if you want to change the thickness or colour of the outlines of cells in a table you have to go from the table inspector to the graphic inspector. If you want to move an object around the page you have to go from the graphic inspector to the wrap inspector and check the 'fixed on page box'. I couldn't check how well it formated documents created in Word, and I know that will be very import to a lot of people. So is it worth the money in my opinion, yes, I ordered my copy straight away. For those people who may say I would have ordered it if it didn't do what I needed it to do just because it is an Apple product, I just smile and say I won't be buying a iPod shuffle.
