Apple shutting down iWork.com

While I was checking my email today I noticed an email from Apple

Dear iWork.com user,

Thanks for participating in the iWork.com public beta.

Last year, we launched iCloud, a service that stores your music, photos, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. Today, there are already over 40 million documents stored on iCloud by millions of iWork customers. Learn more about iCloud.

With a new way to share iWork documents between your devices using iCloud, the iWork.com public beta service will no longer be available. As of July 31, 2012, you will no longer be able to access your documents on the iWork.com site or view them on the web.

We recommend that you sign in to iWork.com before July 31, 2012, and download all your documents to your computer. For detailed instructions on how to save a copy of your documents on your computer, read this support article at Apple.com.

Sincerely,
The iWork team

Apple introduced iWork.com so that you could publish and share you documents from iWork suite. Apple has since introduced iCloud which lets you sync not only documents, but   your media between devices. Now Apple is trying to make a push to get more people to join iCloud, so Apple is closing iWork.com on July 31, 2012. When this Apple service closes this will let Apple move forward in making iCloud the major service to share documents.
