Docs To Go v8 Released with Native PDF Support
DataViz announced today the release of Documents To Go Premium Edition version 8. This latest version of the Premium Edition adds native PDF support, providing an image-rich, WYSIWYG-view of product brochures, manuals, annual reports and other common Adobe PDF files and attachments without requiring any desktop conversion.
"With this newest generation of Palm OS-based devices that are wirelessly-enabled like the Treo 650 smartphone and TX handheld, support for native PDF files has consistently ranked as the top feature request from our customers, "said Danny Tu, Product Manager, DataViz, Inc. "Adding native PDF file support to Documents To Go Premium Edition 8 creates a compelling upgrade offer for our customers so we are very excited to deliver this solution to the market."
Native PDF technology includes support for embedded graphics, tables, multiple zoom levels, page layout and word wrap views to provide a desktop-quality view of PDF files on Treo smartphones and other popular Palm OS-based devices. In addition, pre-processing of files is not required on the desktop before the file can be viewed on the mobile device. For instance, customers who receive PDF files as e-mail attachments can easily view them right on their mobile device.
“DataViz continues to develop innovative applications that are optimized for Palm OS and designed to give customers the office solutions they need to be productive when on the road,” said Lisa Rathjens, director of developer marketing for PalmSource. “A native PDF solution that doesn’t require interaction with a desktop computer is a must-have in today's wireless world.”
