Email has become a very popular way to send and share documents. Zoho Viewer was created to make document sharing even easier. Rather than send a document as an attachment to an email message, the user can instead upload it to Zoho Viewer. After uploading, the application provides the user with a URL that they can use to share the document with others. The URL can also be posted to blogs and forums. The process is very easy and pain free. The user doesn’t even have to sign up or sign in to Zoho to use it. Zoho Viewer supports many commonly used file types, including Microsoft Office’s .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pps, .pptx and OpenOffice’s .sxw, .sxc, .sxi along with .wpd, .pdf, .rtf, .txt, .html, .csv and .tsv.
Zoho Viewer is a part of the Zoho family of applications. Zoho was founded in September of 2005. The current team includes Evangelist Raju Vegesna and Director of Business Development Ian Wenig. The company headquarters is currently located in Pleasanton, California.
Zoho Viewer stands out because it completely simplifies the act of sharing a document. Users can upload documents without logging in. The application supports numerous file types and generates a URL that the user can access to post the item on a forum or blog entry. The process takes almost no time at all and gives users more flexibility when sharing a document online.
Zoho Viewer takes on the same design and color scheme of other Zoho products. These applications generally feature primarily white background with the colorful blocks that make up the Zoho company logo. Zoho Viewer is much the same, with a light blue box to highlight the actual application. The design is very neat and clean with absolutely no clutter.
Anyone can use Zoho Viewer for free. There are no subscription fees or other costs associated with the application. Users can upload documents of up to 10 MBs each to create URLs for quick sharing. The application is a great solution for anyone who needs to share something with others or for a user who wants to enhance a blog or forum post with a document.
Anyone who needs to share a document can appreciate Zoho Viewer. The application is extremely easy to use and requires no log in to access. It is as budget friendly as it can get and offers a basic, but helpful service to its users.
