iWork.com Adds Social Networking Support, More iPhone Features

Apple added new social networking and iPhone features to its iWork.com public beta on Thursday. Users can now share links to their documents via social networking services, and iPhone and iPod touch users now have an updated interface for accessing documents on the go.

iWork.com’s new sharing feature lets users create a public link to documents that can be shared via Web sites, social networks or email. Anyone that has the link can see the associated file without document comments and notes in their Web browser. Users can also see how many times their public documents have been viewed.

The new iPhone and iPod touch interface improves touch-based scrolling and document searching. It also includes document download support for the iPad, so users can edit files in the iPad versions of Pages, Numbers and Keynote.

iWork.com is Apple’s Web-based collaboration service for Pages, Numbers and Keynote users. It is currently in a public beta test phase.
