iWork on iCloud, able to download as varies format and edit on iWork or Office [Video]

iWork on iCloud

If you have read our previous on iCloud now on Beta, you would have know that Apple have launch iCloud into its beta state. All developers are now able to try out, not just with’s Web Apps, but also from iOS 5.

This is huge, as now iOS devices, Macs and Web are almost integrated tightly. This is not Apple’s first implementation of it. Previously they had came out with MobileMe. Of course, wasn’t too successful, but with iPhone and iPad’s popularity, the demand for cloud syncing are growing too. Thus I feel that Apple have put in a lot of effort in making this cloud storage and sync as useful and as fast as possible.

Sync-ing from iOS iWork to iCloud is pretty fast!

Video below shows that iWork documents are sync into iCloud in just seconds after creation, and it is constantly pulling the changes up into the cloud. So you virtually don’t need to save and will have a copy of your document pulled from iPhone/iPad to iCloud. This is pretty neat.

I can imagine a use case like I was working on my document on my Macbook Pro, but I need to rush off to work. I don’t need to save a copy of the document and send it to my email, so I can download it from my iPad. I can just access iWork app on my iPad and will have exact same copy of the document while I’m commuting to work.

Check out the video below for a demo of iWork on iCloud:

Wireless iPhone Sync rejected by App Store, but available in Cydia

Apple rejected Wireless iPhone Sync which we have seen in video previously, we know that is it not going to be approved.

But nevertheless, it’s developer Greg Hughes turned to Cydia, after being rejected by App Store. Cydia – the jailbreak “app store” where you can find apps that can only be run on Jailbroken iPhones.

You can get the Wifi Sync App in Cydia now for USD$9.99

Hughes told Engadget that an Apple representative told him over the phone that the application was not specifically in violation of the terms of the iPhone OS developer agreement.

While he agreed that the app doesn’t technically break the rules, he said that it does encroach upon the boundaries of what they can and cannot allow on their store,” the developer said. “He also cited security concerns.
