I got Pages, Numbers & Keynote for free in my App Store ($60 worth for free) ... It said you are qualified to upgrade to these 3 apps, so I quickly downloaded & installed ... anyone else got those free today? Just wonder why Apple so sweet today.
It's not just today. Like OS X Mavericks, the iWork and iLife apps are now free.
Not exactly. The app store will upgrade existing copies within certain limits. For instance, we were able to update our iLife apps from a 1 year old mini for free (iPhoto, iMovie and Garage Band), as they are reasonably current. But iWork 08 apps are too old for the app store to recognize them and offer them for free.
Reports around the web are that if you have a version of iWork 09 or newer installed (from boxed or downloaded versions), even just a "never paid and activated" demo copy, once you upgrade to Mavericks, the app store will give you the upgrade for free. It was also evidently working for demo versions of Aperture earlier today, although I imagine Apple did not really intend that.
Otherwise, all iWork and iLife are free now and for the future with any new mac purchase, and the iOS versions are free with any iPad, iPhone or iPod touch purchase.
Anyone tried their Nik plugins with the Aperture upgrade yet?
