I’ve been having a conversation about working with a digital publishing company in the UK. So naturally one of the first things I did was try their product. It was of particular interest because of my recent eBook experience and also because I’m always looking for new ways to share information with readers, clients, and friends. After years in publishing, I like to stay current on digital publication tools.
YUDU Freedom is elegant.
Great Find: YUDU
Target Audience: Anyone who shares digital documents
YUDU Freedom allows you to publish any document online for free. I did myself and can speak from experience. I uploaded two documents — both .pdfs, 24 pages and 68 pages, both with photos. The upload took seconds. I was able to title and tag my file. The email with the link to my file arrived far faster than I expected, maybe within 90 seconds. The links inside are private unless I choose to share them.
But what impressed me most was the beauty of the result. In particular, the document below was designed to showcase light and space . . . the YUDU enhances the design far more than any other document reader. I hadn’t prepared or edited the document here — for example the Table of Contents isn’t true and I haven’t spent time considering the type font — still YUDU show this work in progress beautifully. Click the screenshot and stretch your browser to full screen to see the entire 24-page document online inside YUDU.
Notice how you can turn pages like a book using the lower corners or like a .pdf using the arrow above. Nice touch. Options allow you to remove the sound or the page turn, if you don’t want to be distracted by them. YUDU has more features rolling out soon. Watch this product.
