Hi,

This might sound like a stupid question, but when Apple ends up updating the software, would this entail buying new copies from the Mac App Store?

I have Pages and Keynote, just bought within the last 6 months.
I would love it if I didn't have to drop another 40 some dollars.

I am relatively new to Mac, so I apologize again if this is a stupid question :eek:

Thanks!

no one really knows. They could update the Apps that are there, or introduce new Apps and you'll have to re-buy them .

Yeah, we don't really know. The last time a major version of iWork was released was before the Mac App Store.
Thanks!
I thought this would be the case. Seems like they'd leave the versions of iWork up there as "Pages" "Keynote" and "Numbers", without the year suffixes.. and just continually update them. I guess we will find out! :D

Does anyone expect an update announcement at WWDC? It seems something must be done by the end of the month when the iWork.com beta comes down and this feature must be scrubbed from the current version.
Perhaps this is wishful thinking on my part.

I'm hoping we get a huge boom of app updates that leverage iCloud and Mountain Lion.

iWork would sorely be one of those much needed updates.

iWork 09 - Seriously Stale Software

I am really hoping that WWDC provides us with some news regarding the moldy software known as iWork 09. This is getting almost as bad as having AppleWorks for decades.

I keep wanting to pull the trigger to get away from the bloatware I am currently using, but until Apple actually announces that iWorks 09 purchasers will get a free update from 'whatever date' forward, I'll leave the money in the bank and keep waiting.

A quick question: Didn't iWork used to have an 09 on the box, not just an 09 after each application; Pages 09, Keynote 09, Numbers 09? I just hit the store for the first time in forever for iWork and it's simply listed as iWork. Did Apple make a change or just foggy memory?

Looking forward to WWDC in hopes of lots of announcements.
