iWork Numbers and the iPhone
Apple's new application, Numbers, is a really nice refreshing blend of Excel and a general diagramming tool

Dylan Schiemann's Blog

Apple’s new application, Numbers, is a really nice refreshing blend of Excel and a general diagramming tool. It is surprisingly feature-rich, making actually somewhat more complex to use than a typical Apple app. It’s interesting that the new iWork suite has the Leopard theme or skin. Because of the Leopard delays, Apple seems to be in this weird hybrid states where many of their new applications have the new Apple style, but the operating system itself does not. It’s a very different model than Microsoft where apps take on the theme and UI guidelines of the version of the Windows. The Numbers templates, while nice, are not nearly as impressive as the screenshots and demos shown on the Apple web site. Hopefully some of the people that create some of the amazing Keynote themes and templates will do the same for Numbers. The nicest thing about Numbers is that it actually makes spreadsheets somewhat fun to use and work with.

So what does this have to do with the iPhone? Well, it seems that the iPhone does not yet recognize Numbers documents when sent as attachments via email. I was really curious to see how the iPhone would handle some of the 3-D charting capabilities…

It seems surprising that you think it's "weird" that the iWork applications follow the interface design for Leopard (due in October). Guidelines for the new UI have been previously announced, and in fact other applications (e.g. Mail) already follow this new look.

What would be "weird" is if Apple's newly introduced applications ignored these guidelines and went with the older brushed-metal look.

Are you really sure that iWork has the Leopard skin? Seems not to me... but then again, the only things I notice are article that speak of iWork 08, but feature iWork 06 packaging to illustrate the story ;-)
