Examples of "appleworks"
Apple released version 2.0 in 1986 with the Apple IIGS, and then a year later the program was published by Claris. Claris contracted with Beagle Bros. to upgrade AppleWorks to version 3.0 in 1989, then turned its attention to producing Macintosh and Windows software, letting AppleWorks languish. Claris did, however, agree to license the AppleWorks trademark to Quality Computers, which released AppleWorks 4.0 in 1993 and AppleWorks 5.0 in 1994.
In 1988, Claris acquired an integrated package called GS Works from StyleWare and renamed it AppleWorks GS, bringing the AppleWorks brand to the 16-bit Apple IIGS, though no code from the 8-bit Apple II version is used. In addition to the word processing, database, and spreadsheet functions, AppleWorks GS also includes telecommunications, page layout and graphics modules. Only one major version of AppleWorks GS exists, progressing as far as 1.1; a vaporware 2.0 update was rumored to be "just short of completion" for a long time. AppleWorks GS can open AppleWorks files without needing to import them first.
The AppleWorks User Group is a group formed in 1991 to support users of Apple Inc's AppleWorks software suite. The group is often referred to as "AWUG". AWUG publishes a monthly newsletter, the "AppleWorks Journal", that provides hints, tips, and techniques for AppleWorks. It also provides its members with telephone and email support, as well as access to a "Members Helping Members" database (actually distributed as a PDF) and the "AppleWorks News Service" website, which provides timely news and information about AppleWorks. Membership also includes access to the AWUG Public Domain Library, a repository of AppleWorks utilities, templates, fonts, enhancements, and updates. AWUG members also get discounts on various software titles. AWUG also supports developers of AppleWorks-related software.
With the advent of system 10.7 ("Lion"), AppleWorks is no longer supported by the Macintosh operating system. AppleWorks word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation files can be opened in the iWork applications Pages, Numbers, and Keynote respectively. There is no Apple-supplied application to open AppleWorks database, painting, or drawing files without converting them to a different format. Some versions of EazyDraw software support the import of the AppleWorks drawing formats. This software runs on Mountain Lion and older. There is an AppleWorks user group, and there is an article on migrating away from AppleWorks.
Apple and Lissner provided technical information on modifying AppleWorks, helping to create a substantial market for third-party accessories and support. "Compute!'s Apple Applications" reported in 1987 that ""AppleWorks" has become a frontier for software developers", and predicted that "Soon, the best software on the Apple II computer line will require "AppleWorks"". The September 1986 issue of "inCider", for example, contained two AppleWorks-related articles; advertisements for two AppleWorks-related expansion cards from Applied Engineering, an application that promised to let AppleWorks run on an Apple II Plus with an 80-column display board, an AppleWorks-dedicated newsletter called "The Main Menu", and an AppleWorks-related product from Beagle Bros; many other advertisements that mentioned AppleWorks; and a column criticizing companies that developed AppleWorks-related products instead of new ones ("thinks small and innovates nothing"). One of the most successful was the TimeOut series from Beagle Bros. TimeOut developers Alan Bird, Randy Brandt and Rob Renstrom were involved in developing AppleWorks 3.0 and eventually AppleWorks incorporated numerous TimeOut functions. TimeOut developers Randy Brandt and Dan Verkade created AppleWorks 4.0 and 5.0 for Quality Computers.
The 8-bit AppleWorks is sometimes referred to as "AppleWorks Classic" to differentiate it from AppleWorks GS and the later product for Macintosh and Windows of the same name. The term "Classic" in this context does not refer to the Classic compatibility environment in Mac OS X.
AppleWorks refers to two different office suite products, both of which are now discontinued. The first program known as AppleWorks is an integrated software package for the Apple II platform, released in 1984 by Apple Computer.
Observers had expected AppleWorks 2.0 to have a Macintosh-like mouse-driven graphic user interface, but "inCider" reported before its release that such a revision had been delayed because of "problems between Apple and [Lissner]". It was nonetheless very popular among IIGS owners; in December 1987 "Compute!'s Apple Applications" reported that "the hottest product on the Apple IIGS is "AppleWorks". No mouse interface, no color, no graphics. Just "AppleWorks" from the IIe and IIc world". The magazine wondered in an editorial, ""AppleWorks", Where Are You?". The magazine stated that a IIGS version of AppleWorks or another AppleWorks-like integrated suite "could galvanize the machine's sales" and warned that otherwise "the IIGS may well languish".
Beagle Bros began producing add-ons for the AppleWorks, its first being the MacroWorks keyboard shortcut utility by Randy Brandt. Beagle Bros programmer Alan Bird later devised an API for creating AppleWorks add-ons, which they dubbed TimeOut. TimeOut programmers Alan Bird, Randy Brandt and Rob Renstrom were tapped by Claris to develop AppleWorks 3.0, and the TimeOut API itself became a part of AppleWorks with version 4.0. Eventually the TimeOut API was made public and a number of non-Beagle TimeOut applications were released.
In August 2007, Apple declared AppleWorks "end of life" and stated that they would no longer sell the package. The iWork package, which includes a word processing program, a spreadsheet, and a presentation graphics program, is intended to be its replacement. While much more feature-rich, iWork still lacks some of the modules and the tight integration of AppleWorks. AppleWorks will not run on any versions of Mac OS X later than Snow Leopard because it is written in PowerPC code.
LibreOffice is a free office suite that will open most AppleWorks and ClarisWorks files.
Word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation applications with capabilities similar to AppleWorks are currently part of the iWork suite.
The word-processing module of AppleWorks is very similar to MacWrite Pro. While it was written entirely from scratch, it retained some of the design limitations of MacWrite Pro. However, later versions of AppleWorks are unable to read older MacWrite Pro files.
The second program known as AppleWorks is a renamed version of ClarisWorks, a Mac and Windows office suite program originally created by the former Apple subsidiary Claris. It was bundled with all consumer-level Macs sold by Apple. On August 15, 2007, this version of AppleWorks reached end-of-life status, and was no longer sold.
The second incarnation of AppleWorks started life as ClarisWorks, written by Bob Hearn and Scott Holdaway and published by Claris (a spin-off from Apple, today known as FileMaker Inc). The Creator code of ClarisWorks for the Macintosh is "BOBO". The file extension of AppleWorks and ClarisWorks for Windows documents is .cwk, and .cws for templates. ClarisWorks combines:
"BYTE"s reviewer in December 1984 called AppleWorks "easy to use, genuinely user-friendly, and well documented". She called the word processor "my favorite part ... well above average" and the spreadsheet and database "good but certainly not standouts". As a package for novice and casual users, the reviewer concluded, "Appleworks is excellent". "InfoWorld" that month disagreed, calling it "a study in limitations ... this package is not strong". While approving of the shared clipboard and user interface, the magazine stated that Appleworks' limitations—such as the limit of eight pages in the word processor with 64K RAM—made it "not good enough as a business product to warrant much consideration".
Developed by Rupert Lissner, the original AppleWorks was one of the first integrated office suites for personal computers, featuring a word processor, spreadsheet, and database merged into a single program. It was released in 1984 as a demonstration product for the new 128k models of the Apple II line. Apple had previously published Lissner's QuickFile, a database program that closely resembled what became the AppleWorks database module. An Apple III version of AppleWorks, which used the same file formats, was dubbed III E-Z Pieces and marketed by Haba Systems.
Equation Editor by Design Science is bundled with AppleWorks. Also, the MathType or MathMagic equation editors can be used. Both support automatic baseline alignment for inline equations.
Because it was generally considered unethical for OS developers to also sell application software (something for which Digital Research founder Gary Kildall had criticized Microsoft), Apple avoided any advertisement of the program. AppleWorks nevertheless debuted at #2 on Softalk's monthly bestseller list and quickly became the best-selling software package on any computer, ousting even Lotus 1-2-3 from the top of the industry-wide sales charts. Apple's software subsidiary Claris sold the one millionth copy of AppleWorks in December 1988.
"Compute!" in 1989 stated that "Though not a speed demon like" AppleWorks Classic, the GS version "isn't as slow as many had feared"; although a fast typist could still outrun the computer's display, it performed better than other Apple IIGS software. Although many AppleWorks Classic users bought the GS version, with reportedly 35,000 copies sold in the first three weeks, the magazine warned that they "must forget virtually everything they've learned ... What a pain".
