Snowbound Software Enhances Mobile Features for VirtualViewer HTML5 (4/3/14)

Waltham, MA. (Apr 3, 2014) - Snowbound Software, the market leader in web-based document viewing technology, today announced significant enhancements to its award-winning document viewer, VirtualViewer HTML5. VirtualViewer version 3.4 includes powerful new mobile capabilities, along with keyboard shortcuts, text extraction, and metadata functionality.

"This milestone release adds tremendous value to VirtualViewer," said Jeff Kurson, product manager at Snowbound Software. "The new enhancements offer our customers more ways to streamline their workflow, while also providing our on-the-go clients with a truly mobile user experience."

VirtualViewer HTML5 version 3.4 satisfies customer demands for:

  • An enhanced mobile user experience: Users accessing the viewer on tablets and smartphones can now utilize touch-based interactions for adding and editing annotations, as well as momentum-based scrolling to navigate through pages. The mobile version of the viewer also features a clearer and sharper user interface with bigger buttons that allow for easier touch navigation.
  • Text extraction capabilities: Users can easily copy and extract text from searchable documents by dragging over the desired text, copying to the clipboard, and then pasting safely and securely elsewhere.
  • Metadata functionality: The enhanced viewer displays a customizable list of document and page properties -- for example, Document Size (Bytes), Page Count or Document Format.
  • Keyboard shortcuts: With the new capabilities, users can employ simple keyboard shortcuts for many of VirtualViewer's features (zoom, rotate, print, scroll, etc.), saving significant time.

"We're incredibly excited to bring our new mobile-enhanced VirtualViewer to our customers," said Simon Wieczner, president and CEO of Snowbound Software. "We have listened to their requests and worked hard to provide a solution that will increase their productivity and capability with both tablets and smartphones."

Snowbound's VirtualViewer HTML5 document viewer is a document viewing solution enabling file retrieval through a universal web application.
