We are glad to announce a new addition to Zoho apps - Zoho Viewer - an easy way to share and view documents.
You need not be a Zoho user to use Zoho Viewer. Just upload any of the supported document formats to view the document. The URL you get in your address bar will be the permalink to that document and can now share this document with other users. You can email the link to this document using the 'Share' option or you can embed it using the code given under the 'Embed' option. We also have options to export the document to different formats or you can just download the original document using the 'Download' option.
This short video gives you a quick overview of Zoho Viewer.
The documents you upload are not viewable by others unless you share the URL. They are also not indexable by search engines (unless you link a particular document).We talked about couple of points earlier - 1) Attachment are Evil and 2) Document are URLs. Zoho Viewer is a product designed along those lines. It lets you easily share documents as URLs without having to attach files. Some users internally call it as TinyURL for Documents.
We think this is a very simple and useful application. Please give it a try and let us know what you think.
Update: We increased the upload size limit from 5MB to 10MB.
