One interesting thing to note, iWork for iPad puts a line in the sand. The three applications look smooth, polished and pretty full featured. At $ 9.99 for each app, other developers have a high bar to cross if they want their own apps to be successful.
True and true.
Macs used to ship with AppleWorks back in the day. Though at times I wish they shipped with iWork for free, not everybody wants the apps.
At 9.99 a pop, these are really a high bar. I was happy when Omni said they were going to prep all of their apps for the iPad, but shocked when I saw somewhere that they were going to be pricing them at around 50 bucks. I certainly hope that isn't true.
I wonder if the pricing could eventually carry over to computers and we could see a reduction in the cost for apps across the board. Wouldn't that be sweet?
