Import and export PDFs, Microsoft Office documents, and more on your iPhone and iPad
CHICAGO – June 24, 2016 – Earlier today, Branchfire announced the ability to connect to Microsoft OneDrive for Business in iAnnotate 4, allowing users to import documents created in Microsoft Office. This allows Office customers to use iAnnotate 4 to convert documents to PDF, then read, annotate and save them to the cloud. This integration allows customers to get more value out of their mobile devices.
Since 2011 iAnnotate has been available on the iPad, and the new version 4 brings full support for iPhone and iPad Pro. Customers use iAnnotate because of its powerful annotation toolsets and customizability. Now with full OneDrive support, it's easier than ever for enterprise users to annotate their important work product.
"Over a million people rely on iAnnotate to convert, mark up, and share their documents," said Ravi Bhatt, CEO of Branchfire. " Integrating with Office gives them instant access to their organizations' cloud storage and business documents. It just makes sense."
The new iAnnotate 4 introduces a number of feature improvements. iAnnotate 4 includes Office support, full iPhone and iPad Pro compatibility, new shape annotations, advanced sharing features, Microsoft Excel conversion, web page conversion, and more.
“Office customers continue to do more work on their tablets and phones, requiring feature- rich apps to realize the potential of these devices,” said Rob Howard, director, Office 365 Ecosystem, Microsoft. “iAnnotate's tools and customizations, integrated with Office 365 capabilities, provides our joint customers with increased productivity on mobile."
Microsoft Office 2016 delivers new versions of the Office desktop apps for Windows, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, Project, Visio, and Access. By subscribing to Office 365, customers can get always-up-to-date, fully installed apps for use across their devices, combined with a continually evolving set of consumer and commercial services, such as OneDrive online storage, Skype for Business, Delve, Yammer, and enterprise-grade security features.
