AppleWorks

AppleWorks

An earlier integrated software package from Apple for the Mac and Windows. It was introduced in 1991 for the Mac as ClarisWorks (from Apple's Claris subsidiary) and included word processing, spreadsheet, database, drawing, painting and communications functions. Quite popular, a Windows version followed two years later.

In the late 1990s, long after the Claris subsidiary had been absorbed back into Apple, ClarisWorks 5 became AppleWorks 5. Replacing the communications function with presentation graphics, AppleWorks 6 was the last version of AppleWorks, with its final update in early 2004. See iWork.

Originally for the Apple II
AppleWorks came out in 1984 for the Apple II. It combined a word processor, spreadsheet and database in one program that was very popular. Apple acquired StyleWare and rebranded its GSWorks software to AppleWorks GS for the Apple IIgs. In the 1990s, when the Mac had become Apple's flagship platform, AppleWorks for the Apple II and AppleWorks GS were turned over to Quality Computers for development and marketing. See Apple II.
