I’m taking a break from the usual Sample of the Week again to post a little news about how the Datalogics PDF WebAPI is being used. Adobe Acrobat DC was released on Tuesday. I’ve been playing with the prerelease versions for the last few months and I must say that I’m very impressed. Adobe has managed to make using the more advanced functionality of Acrobat more discoverable and easier to use. Working with electronic forms is a much better experience regardless of where you’re starting from, a fully interactive form, a scanned image of a paper form or anywhere in between, they all work more or less the same way.
As part of their promotion of the new release, the social media team created “#FormRage Selfies”, a site where you can create a custom “selfie” that helps you vent your frustrations with paper forms. Lori DeFurio, Group Manager, Social Strategy at Adobe told me “We want the experience to work on mobile as well as the desktop, content to be easily shared on social networks, and to leverage PDF technology”. So I recommended the Datalogics PDF WebAPI to do the heavy lifting behind the scenes.
