Acrobat X has taken the CODiE award for Best Content Management Solution, a prize granted by the SIIA (Software and Information Industry Association) each year. We were also awarded the prize for the “Supercategory” Best Information Management Solution.
Now in their 26th year, the CODiE Awards are sponsored by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industry; they are the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. For more information and a complete list of categories and winners, please visit www.siia.net/codies/2011
It was such a pleasant surprise to be chosen and distinguished in a field full of accomplished and exciting software products. The team here at Adobe extends its gratitude to all of you, our loyal users and customers, for your continuing support of Acrobat, and for all that each one of you has done to help us make the best product available in its field. These awards are really for you – all of our fans.
This week, some very exciting enhancements to Adobe SendNow were picked up on and featured by the incomparable Harry McCracken over on the Technologizer blog in an excellent summary post (thanks, Harry!). The Technologizer article also highlights a piece of the industry-leading SendNow service that we happen to care deeply about: that people can send 100 MB files using Adobe SendNow’s free plan (and 2 GB files with SendNow Basic and Plus subscriptions). We like to think that this is just common decency: allowing for truly large files (100 MB is not small!) to be sent free of charge is our (frankly superior) solution to a ubiquitous problem. While other services in the field may believe that 50 MB is generous enough, we happen not to agree. We want SendNow to be the best it can be—the best available, in fact—and that means giving you what you need from a file transfer service. These features are based directly on suggestions that we heard from all of you, and we’re very happy to be able to offer them.
Oh my, have we ever got a platter full of treats for you! We’ve been cooking up a storm in the back kitchens at Adobe SendNow; here’s your first look at what’s on the table. We’ll go into more detail later on, but we just can’t wait to announce what’s on the menu!
Happy Monday, everyone! Today we’re rolling out a new application to help you create your PDF files on the go on your Android device. The video here shows the application in action on a Motorola XOOM, but it works like a dream on your phone or other Android tablets as well. Check it out!
At $9.99 for unlimited conversions, this app is a steal; it’s not the same as a subscription to the CreatePDF service, but it’s a great supplement for those of you who have to work from the road and want a quick and easy way to create and store PDF files on your phone or tablet. Let us know what you think!
How many times have you found yourself staring at a PDF file in Adobe Reader, with text in it that you wrote for a colleague—only to see it appear with countless egregious grammatical errors in the PDF file she made to compile material from your whole department? Haven’t you wanted just to reach into that PDF file and fix the things that need fixing? Adobe Acrobat is certainly an option, but what if you are just using the free Adobe Reader? Can nothing be done? Won’t somebody help?!
[Cue dramatic super-hero music.] Not to fear! Adobe ExportPDF is finally (finally!) here! While you’ve been using the Adobe CreatePDF service to create your PDF files, there have certainly been occasions when you’ve wanted to make some major changes to those files. To that end, we’ve also schemed up a service to help you convert a PDF file into a Word document (.docx). Adobe ExportPDF is a quick and simple way to make an editable file out of any PDF (well, any PDF that doesn’t have security restrictions; if we let you edit secured documents, that just wouldn’t be right).
The service is based on Acrobat X’s capability to export PDF files to Word, so be assured that the quality is top-notch. And at just US$19.99 per year for unlimited conversions, how can you resist? You can sleep easy at night knowing that we’re working on ways to unlock information in PDF files that is of value to you.
Have you tried it yet? What do you think? Let us know by leaving a comment!
Since its release in February, Adobe FormsCentral has been getting a lot of attention: as a super simple way to build an HTML form and collect, organize, and analyze responses, it cuts a compelling figure in the field. However, one thing we heard from you all from the get-go was: “When will I be able to embed a form in my web page instead of just adding a link to that form?”
Today we’d like to welcome the newest member of the Acrobat.com Services family: Adobe ExportPDF. This new service is designed to export your PDF files to an editable .docx document (for Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010). The following comes from Acrobat.com Product Marketing Manager, Todd Gerber.
