Earlier this year, we rolled out the Adobe CreatePDF application for your Android devices. Now, those of you with iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touch devices will rejoice at the news: If you bring your iPad with you anywhere you go, you now have the power to create, view and share rich, high-quality PDF files from wherever you are, whether or not you’re near a computer. No iPad? No problem. You can just download the app to your iPhone or iPod Touch and use whichever device you like. Take a look at this video to see a quick demo of the app on an iPad:

We’ve all seen the old movies: The scene opens on the protagonist, sitting next to the telephone. Just staring. At the phone. Waiting for it to ring. When it does eventually buzz, the hero or heroine will certainly have an Important Conversation, in which Important Information will be imparted. However, no one – not the audience, not the hero – knows just when that phone might ring. For all we know, our hero might spend the whole night just waiting by the phone and never hear it ring once. He can’t leave the house for fear he’ll miss the call.
Well, don’t wait by the phone any longer. Everyone, you’re hearing it here first: Email notifications have arrived to FormsCentral. Let’s say that again, a bit differently: When new responses are submitted to your form, you’ll get an email notification. No more waiting in the browser, refreshing your screen every two minutes.
Last week, we looked at the new Page Skip Logic feature in FormsCentral. Today, let’s examine another new addition to the service: Summary reports. These beauties are now built into your forms once data starts flowing in; without exporting any data or fussing around with other spreadsheet programs, you can view your form’s responses graphically. Today, we’ll go through the details of what these summaries can do for you in FormsCentral.
We feel very lucky to be hearing from all of you about what you need in a good cloud-based forms authoring and distribution service. As you may have read yesterday, we’ve recently been able to implement several brand new features that you have been asking about for some time. In several installments over the next week or two, we’ll take a closer look at these features and what you can now newly do with Adobe FormsCentral!
Today’s post comes straight from product manager Randy Swineford; he’s got some exciting news to share with us about FormsCentral, and we think you’ll be excited to hear it. Read on for details!
Since we introduced our online forms service, FormsCentral, we’ve seen all sorts of organizations – from businesses and educational institutions to nonprofits – take advantage of the simplicity and speed our service provides to design, distribute, collect, and analyze data from HTML forms and surveys. Customers have been using FormsCentral for everything from grant applications and satisfaction surveys to class and event registration, as well as research. With the help of FormsCentral, they are moving their organizations forward, maintaining brand integrity, and creating worthwhile experiences for their constituencies. What’s more, they did all this without having to call the IT department.
In the Adobe office, we really like cake. Chocolate, red velvet, raspberry-marzipan-coconut swirl… you name it, we’ll eat it. But with all these over-the-top flavors we’re often tempted by, it can be easy to forget that a basic chiffon can be exactly right: classic, simple, and elegant, without any distracting additions to detract from the satisfaction of a familiar flavor done well.
So here we are to write an open letter to our dear old favorite SendNow Basic plan: Dear friend, no, you won’t manage our finances or do our dry cleaning. But you need not be fancy to require proof of delivery and download, or to require sign-in for each file you send. Security, as far as we’re concerned, should be expected of any vanilla cake; you shouldn’t have to add chocolate chips and lemon custard just to protect your own documents.
Though you may be simple, we can still dress you up: you’re happy to don that professional look by allowing for personal branding, which is an amazing feat for such an easy-to-use service. For those who run a small business, the ability to apply a logo to your clean appearance makes you a worthy choice for sending files to clients and customers.
Not only do you look the part; you play the part by offering 5GB of storage capacity, 200 possible recipients for each file transaction, and an impressive 500 downloads per file. Show us any other basic cake that can do all that!
SendNow Basic, we’re proud to include you in our tiered offerings at Acrobat.com – and at only $9.99 each month, you’re not too far out of reach. Thank you for being our simple and elegant chiffon cake, and not a chocolate-banana-hazelnut-cream pie.
Since it’s summer in San Francisco (it’s endlessly foggy in this city), and since we’re a cloud-based service here, everything seems to be in the clouds today. We thought we’d try to lighten the mood with a relevant cartoon:

Almost a month ago, we announced some exciting new enhancements that were on the way for Adobe SendNow. Today, we’re happy to let you know that one installment of these planned enhancements has arrived!
Now, paid subscribers will be able to upload their own personal or company logo to their SendNow account to brand all correspondence from within the service—at no extra cost.
When you send that beautifully crafted (and 400 MB) proposal to a client, you can make sure that she knows it’s from you: just apply your logo to the notification email and the download page, ensuring that all of the interaction that she has with that file will be entirely seamless, and will reflect the polished and professional manner in which you always work. Why should sending a file restrict your style? These are your files; use your brand.
