Apple is shutting down

  iwork.comIt will come as no surprise to many that Apple has announced it is going to close it's public beta from July 31. iWork was Apple's attempt at sharing documents in the cloud before it launched a much better implementation with iCloud. Their statement reads:

"Dear user,

Thanks for participating in the public beta.

Last year, we launched iCloud, a service that stores your music, photos, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. Today, there are already over 40 million documents stored on iCloud by millions of iWork customers. Learn more about iCloud.

With a new way to share iWork documents between your devices using iCloud, the public beta service will no longer be available. As of July 31, 2012, you will no longer be able to access your documents on the site or view them on the web.

We recommend that you sign in to before July 31, 2012, and download all your documents to your computer. For detailed instructions on how to save a copy of your documents on your computer, read this support article at

Sincerely,  The iWork team"
