by Reads (14,995)

DataViz, Inc. has released Documents To Go Premium Edition version 8 for Palm OS.

This, for the first time, has support for native Adobe Acrobat files, giving users a WYSIWYG-view of PDF documents without requiring any desktop conversion.

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 Palm OS-based devices.

This means that users who receive PDF files as email attachments can easily view them on their handheld or smartphone.

“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, this application’s product manager. “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.”
