Access Apple Inc. iWork on iCloud.com Without An Apple Device
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) now allows the users of non-Apple hardware to create an Apple ID to access the browser-based iWork productivity suite on iCloud.com. The announcement is of particular importance for Windows and Android users, as they will be able to enjoy some of the iCloud features so far restricted to Mac, iPhone or iPad users.
To access this service, users will be required to visit beta.icloud.com and register an Apple ID. Then users can create a login with any email address. Users can now log in to iCloud.com with their Apple ID and access Keynote and Pages and Numbers, the apps that make up Apple’s iWork. Apple will also provide a gigabyte of free storage to users to host their iWork documents in the cloud. However, non-Apple hardware users won’t get access to all of the “standard” iCloud features.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s move to open up iWork for iCloud to anyone, underscores the companies emphasis on allowing users to sample its ecosystem of services. Previously, Steve Jobs attempted similar move with iTunes, offering its music services on Windows computers to let them experience the best of Apple innovations.
Apple iCloud allows users access to their photos, music, documents, contacts, calendars and more from their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Windows computer. iCloud stores user content and keeps it up to date on all user devices.
iCloud’s “Family Sharing” feature enables up to six family members to share their App Store, iTunes Store and iBooks Store purchases without sharing accounts. The feature also allows parents to control kids spending and approve them when require right from their devices. It also allows paying for family purchases using the same credit card and setting family calendar reminders and sharing photos.
The “Find My iPhone” feature allows Apple users to find their missing Mac or any iOS device through Activation Lock functionality, which makes it difficult for anyone to use or sell Apple devices.
