As more employees work away from traditional workplaces, it’s important to empower them with office documents they can access on mobile devices. A sales executive who is always on the move will find it easier to build slide decks using his or her iPad than a laptop. Similarly, it makes life simpler for a CXO to fire up presentations on a tablet while at the airport than to wait to get back to the office.
The new era of presentation tools are ones that are equally compatible and powerful on a smaller screen as they are on a larger desktop or laptop screen. And that’s exactly what we’ve given you with the new and improved Zoho Docs Presentation Editor App for iPad and other tablets!
From checking email to collaborating with your team and even catching up on the news, if you’re anything like me, you probably spend most of your time working on your phone or tablet. Now you can add a few more activities to that list thanks to the latest Zoho Docs update.
The newest Zoho Docs update for iOS and Android lets you quickly create a document to jot down an idea, edit that all-important presentation, and retrieve your files from the cloud, all from one app.
Here are the new additions you will see in the updated app:
A study by 3M Corporation states that ‘90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000x faster in the brain than text’. This means that when you send out a document with only text, chances are most of it never gets through to your reader.
Making a meaningful connection with your reader can be a challenge when creating business documents. These documents are often professional, structured and include a large amount of text. But to make it more presentable, you can’t try jazzing it up with images in every third line or have clip art obscuring the headings! In such cases, shapes and text boxes can spruce up the document and make them more powerful.
To help you do that, we have introduced a whole new range of shapes and text boxes in Zoho Writer, the online document editor from Zoho Docs. So, put on your creative hat and start re-shaping your documents. Here are a few commonly used shapes that can help give your document more impact:
Work is no longer confined to the four walls of an office. You can get called by your manager to review a file while the movies or asked to share the latest copy of the sales report when you are shopping in the market. Sometimes, you also get hit by the ‘Eureka’ moment for the blog idea that you have been thinking for weeks when you are stranded in a middle of a lake, fishing!
So, what do you do? How do you get to your files without dropping everything you are doing and rushing to your office or home? We have the perfect solution – a brand new Zoho Writer app. And yes, your very own pocket online document editor is now available on your too!
It’s always exciting to bring the What’s New stories to our customers. The newest additions, the most sought-after enhancements, or the upcoming features – they have always made you love the product even more!
Today, I am happy to introduce some new additions to our online document editing tool – Zoho Writer.

Here are some new features from the development desk:
A bright sunny day and clear blue sea greet me as I sit down to write my blog. Sipping a blue mojito, my head is swirling with endless thoughts and ideas waiting to materialize on paper. Caught up in the moment, I suddenly feel a tap on my shoulders. I turn around to find my boss staring at me. What in the world is he doing here?
Like when the clock struck 12 and Cinderella’s carriage turned back to a pumpkin, the bright sun turned into a yellow overhead light, the clear blue sea into my laptop screen saver, and the blue mojito into a pen I was chewing. And my boss, well..he was still my boss. Back to reality! I was of course daydreaming about working from my favorite location.
Do you often lapse into such dreams — when writing a code, or designing web pages? If yes, then you, my friend, are looking to be a Digital Nomad! You share the dream with a thousand others to build a location independent career, so you can live and work wherever you want to.
We love beautifully crafted presentations. We all talk about the presentation that left us in awe, but what’s less discussed is the effort that goes into creating one. Remember the moment when you just couldn’t find the right tool to edit an object? Or realized that a feature you assumed never existed, actually exists, tucked away in one corner of the presentation software? If only we had sufficient tips and tricks up our sleeves!! This week, we give you some really handy tips to create and deliver smart presentations using Zoho Show, our online presentation software.
