As soon as the iPad came out, people were asking when they could get Microsoft Office on their device. “It would be the best thing ever!” they all said, and then they waited. And waited. And waited.

We all loved Tetris growing up, right? Maybe it was just me, but I could lose hours playing that classic game, dropping brick upon brick or waiting endlessly for that one super long one to complete a big block all at once.

Apple has long offered their own office software suite on the Mac, and then launched it for the iPad when the stallion of a tablet was released. Now, Apple has updated their iPad offering to make all those iWork for iPad apps universal — meaning the iPhone finally gets some iWork action.
