Things you can do with SME ScribD iPaper integration !

Scribd is great for for being able to view documents within it’s iPaper viewer. SMEStorage allows you to view office documents and PDF’s in the browser using the ScribD iPaper service.


However one of the things you may not be wear of is that you can share the link that is created when you view a document stored on SMEStorage through ScribD. What is the advantage of this ? Well, the document is not stored on ScribD but only loaded dynamically when you access the link. It is private to you. This allows you to share the document for viewing with who you want to but not make it public.


An example of this can be found here for this blog post !

Unlock Amazon S3 with OpenS3

OpenS3 logo

We recently announced that we had launched our OpenS3 beta. The purpose of OpenS3 is to allow any Amazon S3 user to be able to access the SMEStorage platform and take advantage of all the channels and features we have. This means if you would like to have access to your Amazon S3 files via your iPhone for example you now can. If you want to share your Amazon S3 files or use them on Facebook you can , and much more.

After you have registered for the beta, using OpenS3 is simple. You merely enter your Amazon S3 keys (and choose to store them on our servers or not. If not you will need to enter them each time you access your account) and then we import the metadata from you S3 file to the SMEStorage platform. We don’t move the files themselves or change them in anyway. This means you can still access them from any other S3 tool that you choose.

Once you have synchronised you can then choose to change your filenames and store the files in a proper directory structure. Again this will not change the core S3 files. We overlay a proper directory structure on top of S3.

Once you have completed this process you can use the rich SMEStorage filemanager to access all the additional functionality that we provide over and above Amazon S3 such as being able to back up any email account to S3, easy file sharing, unique url for each file, Public files, Business Groups, Faxing, and integration with Flickr, PicniK, Zoho etc.

SME integrates ScribD for PDF viewing

SMEStorage is now integrated with ScribD using their iPaper API which allow PDF’s to be viewed inline within the browser from SMEStorage without having to download them to view them. This compliments existing integration within the SMEStorage platform that allows users to view and edit Microsoft Office documents and view and edit graphic files.
