ThinkFree Introduces iCdocsFree and Easy Way to Publish Office Documents on the Web (February 15, 2006)
ThinkFree, Inc., the leading provider of web-based office productivity software, announces the release of iCdocs, a new free Internet Communication tool for Office Documents. This new Web 2.0 service allows bloggers and web creators to publish word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation documents for people to view exactly as they were originally designed. iCdocs removes the need for converting files into alternate formats that often change the look and layout of the document. Users are also freed from downloading or purchasing any additional software, eliminating extra expenditures. Website creators need only embed a bit of HTML code that invokes the iCdocs API (Application Programming Interface) to display Microsoft Office compatible documents. Developers can also embed the iCdocs API into their internet applications.
"We want to allow everyone to share their ideas, plans, and dreams without limitations," says TJ Kang, founder and CEO of ThinkFree Inc. He adds, "People shouldn't be restricted by what software they need to buy, or having to convert a document into some other format that strays away from their original design. iCdocs will continue to evolve, offering more features and finer controls giving developers greater power and freedom to focus on their concepts, instead of technology." This new service is at the vanguard of Web 2.0 technology, along with Google, Yahoo, and Flickr opening their APIs, transitioning Websites from islands of isolated data to connected, dynamic, interactive communities. In the spirit of Web 2.0, ThinkFree also plans to open up more APIs providing a more powerful method for distributing applications and content for everyone.
Office documents can be created using ThinkFree Office, Microsoft Office, or other office productivity software that saves to Microsoft file formats, and then published by an easy 3 step process using iCdocs. ThinkFree provides the tools to generate the HTML code, making iCdocs easy to use. Simply go to www.thinkfree.com/icdocs/code, point to the location of your document, choose your preferences, and the code is automatically generated for you to copy and paste into your web page or blog. Document creators have the option of either embedding the file into a web page or blog, or adding a link for viewing and saving. Website application developers can find all the information necessary to embed the iCdocs API into their internet applications at www.thinkfree.com/icdocs/documentation. iCdocs is intended for non-commercial use only.
