Apple has launched its iWork suite of productivity apps for the iPhone and iPod touch, with the individual Pages, Numbers and Keynote apps costing $12.99 each from the Australian App Store. The apps, which were previously only available to iPad users, now work universally on the iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and 3rd and 4th generation iPod touch devices.

The apps have launched in Australia at the same time as the US, where they are priced at US$9.99 each. Each app is compatible with files created by its equivalent on the iWork suite for Mac, as well as Microsoft Office files from Excel, PowerPoint and Word. Apple's AirPrint wireless printing standard is also supported, although only a small range of HP printers like the HP Envy 100 are currently compatible.

Any customer who has previously purchased Pages, Numbers or Keynote for iPad will be able to download the apps on any other compatible iOS device for free.

The iPad-only iWork apps have been available since April 2010, when the tablet launched in Australia. The most recent releases work with any iOS device running software version 4.0 or later of the operating system.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
