Acrobat.com updates : Adobe SendNow, Adobe CreatePDF
5 November , 2010Posted by on
The update to the Acrobat.com hosted platform last night has introduced 2 really awesome services and new features for everyone :
Adobe SendNow is designed for sending very large files to anyone with an email address – you can upload the files from your web browser, and via the Share Pane in Acrobat X and Reader X, and they sit on the SendNow servers temporarily while your recipient(s) download them, before being automatically deleted. The basic free account allows sending of files up to 100MB, and the paid services extend that to 2GB (1GB for Mac). Your recipients can download the file multiple times, and you can set yourself up for notifications when they do.
Adobe CreatePDF is an online virtual printer service, allowing you to create PDF files from within your web browser or directly from Adobe Reader X, as well as combine files together. It’s not of course as fully-featured as Adobe Acrobat, but it allows users with the free Reader software to create Adobe-distilled PDFs on demand from anywhere.
All the Acrobat.com services, including the existing platform and the all-new Adobe SendNow and Adobe CreatePDF services, are open to subscribers from everywhere in the world as of now (was not in the past). Most people, no matter where they are, will now be able to purchase the premium accounts and benefit from the new and enhanced features. When you subscribe to the enhanced account, you are allowed for more workspaces, more entrants in ConnectNow rooms, and more storage space.
Of course you can still use the free basic account 😉
