Snowbound Releases latest VirtualViewer AJAX with iPad/iPhone Compatibility

Mobile Document & Image Viewer Demonstrated at Trade Shows across the Country

May 4, 2010 (Boston, MA) – Snowbound Software, the leader in document viewing and conversion solutions, is pleased to announce its latest 1.8 release of its Zero Footprint, VirtualViewer AJAX offering, adding Apple iPad and iPhone integration to the host of other platforms supported including Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari. Now users can view and annotate documents, forms, and medical records on the easy to read, portable tablet just as quickly and easily as from any browser.

VirtualViewer is the only professional-grade Zero Footprint viewer that operates on Apple’s iPad and iPhone. VirtualViewer displays virtually all document and image formats (MS Office, PDF, TIFF, and more), enables the ability to mark-up/annotate, gives users access to content without compromising document formatting or retrieval speed and requires no application installation or client download.

The latest VirtualViewer AJAX release offers many additional product improvements beyond the Apple iPad and iPhone integration including the ability to open multiple documents (Virtual documents) at the same time, select which documents are displayed by default when the viewer is opened, and allow the document thumbnail display panel to highlight either the pages from one document or the first page from multiple documents – to enhance workflow by preparing user-defined document sets that extract pages from multiple documents in advance to speed review.

Snowbound introduced the new technology this spring at the AIIM show, the largest annual information and document management conference, and will be highlighting the offering at the IBM UserNet Events, a series of regional user group meetings for IBM and FileNet customers across the United States.

“The addition of the mobile iPad/iPhone viewing technology to our suite of document and image viewers shows our commitment to keeping our offerings as relevant as we can to our customers’ evolving needs,” explained Simon Wieczner, president, Snowbound Software. “We are always striving to offer state-of-the-art options and solutions that the industry has come to expect from Snowbound Software. The real win with our enhanced AJAX technology is not only that it will operate on the brand-new iPad but on any browser and on any system – without any install.”
