Whenever I tell other writers why they should consider bringing a Mac into their lives, Ulysses inevitably enters the discussion.

Keynote 8 for Mac hasn’t reached the apex of its perfection, but Apple clearly didn’t have a wishlist of features to push it forward.

Pages 7 is the latest in a series of ongoing and gradual improvements to the 2013 “reboot” of Apple’s iWork suite or productivity apps, which also includes Numbers and Keynote.
