DataViz today announced the launch of Documents To Go 2.0 for Android. The new
version of the popular office suite leverages DataViz's experience developing
mobile solutions and brings a feature rich, enterprise-grade productivity tool
to devices based on the Android platform. As good as Android is as a mobile
operating system, out of the box - compared to Windows Mobile - it has one major
drawback: It's impossible to view Microsoft Office documents, for instance
attached to E-Mails. Now, the non-expiring, free version of Documents To Go 2.0
provides all Android-based device users with the ability to view Microsoft Word
and Excel files/attachments. Furthermore, customers using this free version can
unlock the complete feature-set bellow by purchasing a 'Full Version Key.'
The Documents to Go 2.0 update enhancements include:
- Microsoft PowerPoint File Support - The new Slideshow To Go component
allows viewing, editing and creating of PowerPoint presentations. With
support for the latest file formats, including Microsoft Office 2007,
business travelers can effortlessly "flick" through slides, review notes,
rehearse timing and make any last minute modifications when on the go.
- Adobe PDF File Support - The PDF To Go component provides high-fidelity
viewing of Adobe PDF files with options for page view, word wrap, multiple
zoom levels, auto-rotate, bookmarks, search, select and copy text, and
support for password-protected files. With PDF To Go, knowledge workers can
keep all important reference materials at their fingertips.
- Enhancements for Microsoft Word & Excel File Support - Documents To Go
1.0 offered robust viewing and editing of Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx) and
Microsoft Excel (.xls, xlsx) files. Version 2.0 extends the feature set by
adding find and replace, word count, number formatting, sheet formatting,
contextual menus, improved selection modes and scrolling, optimizations for
touch, and a 'Live Folder' for instant access to recently used documents.
"By introducing a free viewer edition as well as a full version with
premium capabilities, we are able to make Documents To Go accessible to all
Android device users around the world," said Ilya Eliashevsky, Product
Manager, DataViz, Inc. "With added support for PowerPoint and PDF files,
Document To Go is now the most comprehensive Office suite available in the
Documents To Go 2.0 is available exclusively through the Android Market for
free, available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. The 'Full
Version Key' - which unlocks the premium features above - is also available
through the Android Market for US$ 29.99.
Customers who previously purchased Documents To Go version 1.0 will receive the
'Full Version Key' at no charge.
