Apple has updated its iWork Mac apps consisting of Pages, Numbers and Keynote as well as iPhoto ready for its new operating system Mountain Lion.

The apps were updated on Wednesday and are now available on the Mac App Store. The updates take full advantage of Mountain Lion and will also utilise the high-resolution display on the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, with files looking "sharper and more vibrant" according to Apple.

iWork now can store documents in iCloud and keep them up to date across your iOS devices, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Mac as well as over the internet implementing your changes across all devices automatically.

Another new feature is dictation, you can speak words, numbers or sentences and see them appear into your document.

The newly updated version of iPhoto (9.3.2) is compatible with OS X Mountain Lion, has improved performance and now allows the user to share images easily via Twitter or Messages.
