Not sure if this is App Store's bug, so you should do this ASAP.  :D
 
Requirements:
OS X Mavericks
Clover Bootloader (I haven't seen this works for Chameleon users so far.)
Recovery HD (I'm not sure if this is required, but it's better to have this on your disk.)
 
1. First, you have to install the trial version (or working old version) of iLife, iWork & Aperture.
2. After the installation is done, change your system language to English and sign in App Store with your account. 
3. Update iLife, iWork & Aperture in App Store, and then you can check if they are in your "Purchases" now. If not, you can reopen App Store and check again.
4. After you've checked "Purchases", you can delete the trial/old version apps in your Applications folder and change system language back.
 
Now your'll be able to download the apps whenever you want in the future with your App Store account.  ;)
 
Download Links: (If moderators consider providing the official trial download links is piracy, I'll remove it.)
iWork09trial.dmg
Aperturetrial3.1.dmg  (This one is removed by Apple, so please try the 3.0.3 one and install it as trial.)
Aperture3.0.3Trial.dmg
I can't find a trial version for iLife11, but I'm able to get it work by updating from my old iLife.

Seems Apple has noticed this bug(?), so they've removed the official download link. You'll have to google it yourself.

I don't know if it's piracy to provide you one link right here.

It should not be considered piracy to share official trial installers. For example, CNET will let you download iWork directly from Apple (don't know if the trick works with it).

I think it is not piracy to share an untouched official trial installer. But it may be considered piracy (really gray area, as it's a server error) to do the trick and make it look like you bought the app. Also remember that this exact same situation happens in real Macs as well, this is not a hackintosh thing only.

Can't people just upload the trial verisons of iLife and iWork or something from a torrent website? Downloading torrents that is trial software is not illegal since its free. Then you install it on your hackintosh and then update it through the App Store. Apple should have known this bug but they don't seem to care. I don't see anywhere that this is illegal since this was by design.

 

Since this was by design, you can't call this piracy. Sorry.

i'm not saying that istalling the trials is illegal, this topic is not about the trial version, don't be stupid.

If you can get iWork and iLife for free just by installing trial versions and then doing this little loophole, whats the problem? -_- Apple doesn't care if you do this. I don't see them doing anything.

Apple wouldn't dare to suspend a legitimate account for using this loophole, remember most of those exploiting this will be real Apple customers (not that we're not, we also purchase software and other devices from them).

I tried installing the iwork09 trial, and update buttons appeared in MAS, but when I wanted to update, it said it was installed by another apple id (null), and it can't update it... :(

Check the requirement. Do you use Clover, and do you have Recovery HD on your Mavericks disk?

Why is recovery hd is needed for an app to download? Do you know that these are needed, or you just have them?

I installed the trial version of iWork '09 and entered no serial and it updated just fine.

 

PS - My bootloader is Clover.

I read that it specifically looks for the recovery HD for some reason... someone recommend installing Mavericks in VMWare, then do the whole process listed above. Once apple associated the installs with your apple ID; which would show up in your Purchases list... you are golden.

 

or alternatively find a mavericks mac to do the same.

in short... they know, and they don't give a #@$. win win
