I slogged through a metric ton of apps that claim to let you send a fax from your iPad or iPhone. The final contenders are a bit of a mixed bag: Some look right at home on iOS, but lack a few features or cost a lot. Others are in need of a redesign yet offer a solid feature set at a fraction of the price.

Apple Makes iWork Web Beta Available Free For Anyone With An Apple ID | TechCrunch

Posted Feb 13, 2015 by Darrell Etherington (@drizzled)

Apple has taken another step toward turning iWork into a service anyone can take advantage of, similar to Google’s web-based productivity suite.
