iWork, Apple’s long-neglected suite of office apps (originally released in January 2009), gets updated to version 9.3 with no feature additions or fixes on the desktop side. Rather, the release is focused solely on adding support for the update to version 1.7 for the trio of iWork apps for iOS (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote). If you purchased the apps separately from the Mac App Store, they’ve been updated to Pages 4.3, Numbers 2.3, and Keynote 5.3. The iWork 9.3 suite is available as a free update via the Mac App Store (OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion), Software Update (10.7 Lion), and direct download. (Free update, 380 MB)
Open Files with App Switcher
Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon. First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.
