There are many Social Digital Document services around that let you upload document files and then give them you out to embed. but having more options is always a good thing. Docuter is a excellent option to the already known digital document services. the important thing about Docuter is that it is focused on being a application first and a social service second .thanks to that, it supports the insane amount of 200 document formats. more than any other service out there and that is what makes this service stand out and the reason i am writing about it and you need to give it a try.
I didnâ€™t saw any use of a high spread sharing module. something that could certainly make the service even better. since it focuses more on the application than in the social features. there is not a well rounded and well developed social network behind the service but that should evolve as the services grows.
The document viewer with the service is flash based, it got a good full screen support and you can of course embed it everywhere. the viewer is simple but one good thing is that i found it to be lighter than others i have seen and that is a very good thing. the secret looks to be a mixture of ajax with flash since the viewer points to AjaxDocumentViewer.com as the base for its tech. i look forwards to seeing it evolve and catch up with the likes of iPaper and issuu.
The service is free and the only thing they are asking you its that you need an account since they donâ€™t allow for public upload, but beyond that you could not ask for something simpler.
Digital Documents services surged in 2008 and i think that they could very well reach a mainstream status in 2009 as its use is exploding dramatically as people want to do more than just be able to share them in file form. they want to have the living in the web and this is the way to go.
After trying it out i can recommend Docuter to anyone that has to handle lots of documents around as part of their job or as part of their personal use. it may not be known but it sure its good.
