Adobe unveils free office productivity tools

Antony Savvas

Adobe Systems has introduced Acrobat.com, a free suite of browser-based and hosted office productivity tools.

Now available as a public beta, the tools are designed to aid communication, collaboration and productivity.

Just as Adobe Acrobat software enables the publishing of electronic documents that anyone can read, Acrobat.com enables individuals to work collaboratively on electronic documents, said Adobe.

The tools take advantage of PDF, Adobe Flash and Adobe Air technologies.

The hosted services in Acrobat.com include Adobe Buzzword, a web-based word processor that can be used to co-author and share documents for comment and review, and Adobe ConnectNow, a personal web conferencing service that includes desktop sharing, video and voice conferencing and integrated chat.

There is also centralised online file sharing with access controls, online PDF conversion for up to five documents, and support for high-quality, web-embeddable documents.

In addition, there are developer APIs for real-time collaboration, file sharing and conversion.
