FYI, if you are using any iWork apps on iPad, then there is an update for all the apps.
Care to share what the update is?
A variety of bug fixes, and for Pages... menus are now available in landscape orientation.
Here are the details for Pages:
Sounds good, especially menu in landscape. The way it originally worked sounds good in practice, for it all to vanish away and leave you with just what you are typing... but I'm glad Apple have listened to what the users have thought and added made this change.
Its true but no mention of idisk support
thanks, downloading now.
I feel you. I'm completely disappointed by this.
I think they aren't adding iDisk support to the iWork apps yet because iDisk will be key feature of OS 4.0 for iPad. I expect the iPad version of the OS will come with a native app for accessing iDisk and sending compatible files to Pages, Numbers etc. At that point, it would make sense to update the iWork apps so that they can save to the iDisk.
Please be skeptical, I have no evidence. I just think it's something they would have fixed already by now unless they have bigger plans coming. And 4.0 isn't really too far away.
This makes sense as there has to be a reason that 4 for iPad will follow the release for iPhone by a few months. Apple knows there are features missing from the current OS but wanted to get it out the door as soon as possible. I think you are right and that we will see 4.1 in the Fall with new features beyond those announced for 4.0.
I also agree its coming in OS 4.0 however it is such a basic fix to add it into the iWork apps (Office HD2 and other apps have incorporated it) that it is a bit daft really.
Maybe its part of a print solution that they could be working on?
Until some kind of printing is added who cares. iWork for iPad reminds me of all the hoops I use to go through to get a Word for PC doc to print back in the early 90s.
This program is like Chupa says, painfully difficult to use- far from magical. Basically useless as is.
Damn just posted this in the ipad app's section
Wow, thanks!! Finally, toolbar in horizontal mode!!! Apple is listening!
Printing on paper is so 90's. What I want is syncing from Mac to iPad to Mac like Notes. Or better yet wi-fi like Apple's Bento.
Which would be the right place to post it.
The toolbar in landscape mode is the #1 complaint I've seen on this board. The reaction in this thread surprises me. They can't completely rebuild the app in two weeks. Maybe they should have taken more time with it before launch, but with things are as they are, this is a very nice update. Would you have rather they didn't release this update and instead waiting months to bundle it with other fixes?
As the iDisk implementation that many of you are talking about is not even remotely difficult to achieve, it becomes fairly obvious that it was not an oversight, it is because Apple does not want you to do that yet. My guess is that once that feature is enabled, it will start to become more of a laptop replacement than current. Before people start biting my head off, I know that it is not going to ever be a full on laptop replacement for heavy users, but it could certainly be for those people that only use it lightly
