Adobe “SHARE beta”: the cat’s out of the bag …
For the past few months I’ve been working on the front-end of the Adobe SHARE (beta) service. “Front-end” here means the Flex-code that makes up the stuff you see in your browser and that connects to the back-end service that does the heavy-lifting. Almost every action in the user-interface sends a message back to the server with instructions on what to do with the user-supplied data.
“Adobe SHARE beta” is a web-service that allows you to send “documents” to a number of recipients. You can pick whether you want to have those recipients as the only recipients or whether it is allowed to re-share the documents. 1 GB of free storage should be enough to get you going. Besides pushing (email) data to your recipients, you can also upload documents to the service and embed a preview of the document on your own web-site/blog.
The Flex-UI allows us to add some distinct value: you can preview a (growing) number of document-formats right in your browser. This allows you to figure out whether it’s worth to download a document.
There were tons of features that were cut from the application before it’s public release and we are planning to (re-)add those before we reach the 1.0-milestone of the service.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
