Printed from beta adds social networking features, iPad UI

updated 11:40 am EDT, Wed March 17, 2010

New mobile interface features added

Apple on Wednesday announced an updated version of its beta, adding a revamped UI and new features for social networking. The Sign In and Shared Documents page has been optimized for mobile devices such as the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. The new interface and improved scrolling are said to help users quickly find documents.

The web-based service now provides options to share a document by creating a public link, which can be distributed to large groups or on social networking sites. Recipients can view the document, but are prohibited from commenting or adding notes. Users can track the number of views on each document, or download files without leaving the Shared Documents page.

The beta is currently a free service for iWork users. Apple has yet to announce a launch date for the final version, which is expected to require an additional fee. [via MacRumors]
