Adobe launches Acrobat.com

June 2, 2008

Though I mentioned Adobe’s ConnectNow earlier today, it is just one part of a larger community release based at Acrobat.com.

The BBC reports:

Adobe has made a move into online document sharing with the launch of the Acrobat.com community site.

It allows people to create, store and share documents online, and hold web conferences to discuss changes.

Whilst there is a nice review of all the services on the ReadWriteWeb blog:

Acrobat.com is the new entry point to Adobe’s suite of online services. Available now as a public beta, from here you can utilize the Adobe web office tools all from one cohesive and integrated suite that allows for anywhere access and online collaboration. At Acrobat.com, you have access to the following web office tools: Buzzword, ConnectNow, Share, My Files, and Create PDF.

This is another version of the online document collaboration services which have been springing up around the web.

Great for learners who want to work on documents at home, in college and/or at work.

Great for learners who want to work in groups of a group assignment.

Great for anyone who doesn’t own a computer, and wants to write stuff.
