WPS Office Unveils New Features for Productivity Suite in iOS Version
Palo Alto-based WPS Office Software, which offers an office productivity suite for PC and mobile devices, has added features in the iOS version of its complete office productivity suite, offering iPhone users capabilities for greater productivity through file sharing, presenting and recording features.
WPS Office for iOS is part of the WPS Office Suite – an office productivity suite with writer, presentation, spreadsheets, and a PDF reader – available for Windows and Linux PCs, as well as Android and iOS mobile devices.
Although the majority of document creation still takes place on desktop, users are increasingly reviewing and editing their documents from mobile, said Cole Armstrong, global marketing director at WPS Office. As a result, there is the need to make the mobile experience more efficient and seamless. The new iOS features give users easier file access, and the ability to use their phone for common business applications used for presenting and creating content to share or make available publicly, he added.
According to the vendor, the new features in WPS Office for iOS include a feature that allows users to send files to and from their computer and iOS device. Entering the IP address provided into the computer’s browser, users can drag and drop files from computer to iPhone, and back to the computer.
In addition, the new Wire Projection capability turns an iOS device into a presenter. Using a wired connection and VGA/HDMI adapter, users can project a presentation from their iOS device to a TV/projector/display so it can be viewed on a full screen that can be shared with others.
If a dongle is not available for the iPhone or iPad, wireless projection enables users to wirelessly send presentations to any smart connect TV (DLNA) or Airplay device.
With Record PPT, the company says, users can also create video content from presentations that can be posted to YouTube or delivered as webinars. From within Record PPT, users select a file and are prompted to record their voice while presenting the slides. When finished, the recorded slides, along with any drawings/markings made by the users and the users’ voice are saved as an MP4 file.
