    It'll sync between your Mac and iPad once iOS 7 and Mavericks are released with newer versions of the iWork's apps.

    So, what is the criterion for getting the invite? In other words why am I not getting one?

    Default New iWorks for iCloud Beta

    It has been said that the criteria for early access is that you must already use iWork on your Mac and backup documents to the iCloud. I have no proof to back that up, but I do use iWorks on my MacBook and I did already have documents backed up via iCloud.

    Act the risk of stating the obvious, have any of you, who have not received an invite tried to sign on to iCloud and see if the beta apps are there?

    Thanks, I do already have documents backed up via iCloud but do not use iWork on my Mac. Oh well I guess I need to wait.

    I believe the web still isn't able to fully compete with desktop apps. The web has come a long way, but lacks the power of a true app.

    Beta seems to be working good. Hopefully some formatting issues are fixed later down the road...

    I could see a student using it working with school library computers or even if they are working with other students on a group project and would want to allow others in the group to log in and make additions or other changes on the documents.

    i tried it out. I will say it screwed up the formatting of my resume when i uploaded it. It has several text boxes and what not. So i think iworks would have issues with Microsoft word formmatting which would be a very big problem. I don't have issues with skydrive or google drive. I hope they work that out. I'll play around with it more some time though.

    I don't think that's it. I'm on PC. I only use icloud to back up downcast subscriptions, backups and contacts. No itunes, music, no match, no photos etc. I Don't own iworks on my iphone and i got an invite two days ago. Don't know why. But the day it was announced that betas where going out i logged into icloud from my pc browser, clicked on iwork. it said "beta coming", and i clicked whatever links were on that page to give more info. I think it took me to some informative pages or opened up the apple site. But a few days later i got an invite. I kinda speculated that since they have my log in info, by clicking on iwork they'd be getting info that i'm inquiring about how to use it and that may make them send me an invite. That was actually the only reason i started clicking stuff. Sadly i doesn't come with free iworks for iphone but i heard that may go free when ios 7 launches. But that's how my invite happened.

    Thanks, liking it so far.

    Brought in some of my existing documents into Pages, some formatting got messed up and opening was slow but nothing major.

    Haven't tried Numbers or Keynote yet.

    I've never used iWork but did get a beta invite recently. I guess using iCloud to back up iPad/iPhone data counts? (shrug)

    Anyway, I know that beta is beta, but is anyone else unable to take a picture in pages and bring to front/send to back in relation to other pics/text? Having never used the product before, a quick google search showed where the option is at, but was not available on my iCloud version.

    Yeah, I use iCloud.com every day on my work PC and still no invite.

    My wife never has, I showed her that she can log in and it was sitting there for her.

    So I was finishing a video on my MBP and was thinking I need to add this to my Pages video list on iOS. Then I realized I can just do it from iWork for iCloud beta on my MBP itself.

    Okay so I am easily amused, but smooth flawless synching between devices always gets me.

    Now that I have Beta iWorks on my PC, I'm contemplating whether to purchase the Pages app for my iPhone and iPad. The app would only be helpful if my files were available for offline viewing. Can anyone confirm?
