iWork '09 adds security to Web service

Apple's iWork '09 productivity suite ($79) enjoyed an upgrade to version 9.0.

Apple's iWork '09 productivity suite ($79) enjoyed an upgrade to version 9.0.3 today. The update addresses general compatibility issues, improves overall stability, updates the help, and fixes a number of other minor issues in Keynote, Pages, and Numbers according to Apple.

The 66MB update addresses issues with the size of images and movies, working with dates and durations, exporting to CSV and improves the comment notification and security in Apple's companion cloud service iWork.com.

Keynote is the best presentation application for the Mac OS – bar none. It blows PowerPoint out of the water. I like Pages because it comes with a lot of nice templates for flyers and such, but must confess that I rarely use Numbers.

What's your take on Apple's competitor to Microsoft Office? Do you use it?
