Macworld 2009: iWork '09 to be a Web App?

9to5mac has just relieved a truckload of Macworld 2009 tips. One of them being that iWork will turn into Web Applications. There will also be some Template and Transition additions.

This isn't a big surprise as the industry is moving in that direction. (Google, Zoho)
Will this use Safari's new Offline Data Base function? Will this work with the iPhone/iPod Touch? Would this work with the rumored iPad?

9to5mac has also heard there will be some Magic involved.

We just got a truckload of Macworld information dumped on us from our best source. As we piece it together we'll trickle it out. The first big piece of information is that iWork is going into the Cloud. Not just storage, either. We are talking interface for Numbers, Pages and Keynote (which is going to see some interesting new templates and transition additions). Yes, the iWork applications are now going to be Web Applications.

This isn't a huge surprise as the industry (Google, Microsoft, Zoho) is heading in this direction. Questions remain that we'll try to get sorted ASAP. Will this work on iPhone/iPod touch? Will there be traditional apps that go along for offline access - or will this use Safari's new Offline DB functionality? Stay tuned...

Oh, and we've heard there is going to be some "Magic" involved. (Yes this is a clue)

Apple will never release web-Apps. They mainly produce hardware! Web-Apps would also be accessable through windows machines...
