iWork 13 missing features to return

In rewriting these applications, some features from iWork ’09 were not available for the initial release. We plan to reintroduce some of these features in the next few releases and will continue to add brand new features on an ongoing basis.

Apple Support


This is a welcome piece of news, that apple will reintroduce some of the missing features to iWork 13. There was a bit of an out cry that iWork ’09 wasn’t as good as iWork ’13, but all should be fixed soon.


How to find new apps ?

Let’s be honest finding new apps on iTunes or the AppStore just really doesn’t work. Either the interface is too clunky, it’s too slow, or well it just doesn’t work. Finding new apps, especially ones that are new or not highly popular is next to impossible. It’s just the way the AppStore listings work, Apple’s take on it is to make it easy for people to find popular apps, but less known one will more or less suffer as they won’t be discovered. This is both bad for app developers as well as consumers.
