Using Scribd’s Flash-based iPaper format, Drop.io users will now be able to enjoy enhanced document conversion and viewing to privately share and view most document file formats such as: Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF, and Microsoft PowerPoint. Without any registration or accounts in as little as two clicks, the new integration of ipaper with drop.io will enable documents to be effortlessly displayed directly in a users drop.io drop.
CEO of drop.io, Sam Lessin, stated: “We are excited to be able to offer this richer document conversion application to our users through our partnership with Scribd via their iPaper API. drop.io users have asked us for more ways to privately share and view documents directly in their drops. After evaluating several ways in which to provide our users with greater document conversion options, we found Scribd’s iPaper to be the best offering.”
Making it easy for people to privately share information of any type online, the integration between drop.io and Scribd has been structured to be consistent with drop.io’s strong focus.
The original documents in their original format will always be available for download, all documents that Scribd will convert for drop.io will be kept private and deleted upon user request, and they will not be searchable or otherwise accessible outside of drop.io. As always with drop.io.
“We are very happy to be working with drop.io to enhance their document presentation. iPaper is the best solution for people who want to share and display documents online and drop.io’s simple private platform provides us with a perfect partnership to show off the true benefits of iPaper’s functionality while maintaining the private nature of drop.io’s core offering,” stated CEO of Scribd, Trip Adler.
