ThinkFree Online launches
ThinkFree today launched ThinkFree Online, a free Web-based office productivity suite that blends internet collaboration features with Microsoft Office suite compatibility. The online service contains ThinkFree Write for word processing, ThinkFree Calc for spreadsheet management, and ThinkFree Show for creating presentations. ThinkFree Online features collaborative capabilities for group document editing or file sharing, document tagging for optimal organization, and 1GB of free upgradeable online storage. The service includes the ability to publish documents to a Web page or blog, and supports insertion of images through the Flickr online photo management community. ThinkFree Online provides Ajax and Java functionality, with a consistent user-interface for all computing platforms. The Web interface is localized for U.S. English, but features built-in multi-lingual application support for U.K. English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Korean, simplified and traditional Chinese, and Japanese. ThinkFree Online requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
