Apple II Software Package - AppleWorks, 1983 Object Reg. No: HT 13535

AppleWorks is known as an integrated computer program for the Apple II, which allows the user to do database management, word processing and spreadsheet analysis by moving back and forth at will among these three software applications and the files they create. It is possible to combine the three types of information into one document. This integration greatly increases the user's ability to work with information in the easiest and most efficient way.

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.

Apple released version 2.0 in 1986, and then a year later the program was published by Apple's new software subsidiary Claris. Claris upgraded AppleWorks to version 3.0 in 1989. Versions 4.0 and 5.0 were released by a non-Apple company in 1993 and 1994.

The original AppleWorks was for the Apple II.
