Press Release: PDFescape Beta Released, Changing the Future of PDF Forms

Encinitas, CA

Red Software is proud to release PDFescape, the first and only online PDF reader, editor, form filler, and form creator.

 Ever have just a handful of PDF files you wish to fill out and save, only to find out that the free Adobe® Reader won’t cut it? And worse the upgrade to Acrobat® Standard costs almost $300!

 Computer owners reluctant to hand over hundreds of dollars to Adobe®, or other software companies, now have a choice! Why pay hundreds on a piece of software just to fill out a hand full of PDF forms? Don’t, and choose PDFescape. PDFescape enables its users to professionally complete tax forms, job applications, and other documents distributed in the PDF format. PDFescape requires a modern web browser and an active internet connection. That’s it. It doesn’t require the download, purchase, or installation of any software. Best of all, its basic features are free. And those wishing to save PDF files without the PDFescape logo embedded on them pay less than one dollar per form.

 PDFescape features the abilities to open files online from your local computer or other websites. In addition to filling out existing form fields, users can add text, vector shapes, hyperlinks, additional form fields, and more to existing files. This means that even files which didn’t have pre-existing form fields can still be filled out. It also means that users can create their own customized PDF forms on the web with ease.

 PDFescape empowers businesses to publish files online as well. Using some very simple web tools, those wishing to distribute their own PDF form can upload it directly to PDFescape. They can then link customers to the online PDF form, enabling them to fill it out, online, at no cost to their customers. Completed forms can even be set to be emailed to the business who originally published the form to PDFescape upon form submission.

 “I believe PDFescape is the future of PDF form distribution,” says Chris Truxaw, lead developer for PDFescape. “It allows forms to be filled out in one convenient location online without requiring the installation or purchase of any software. Web applications are the future of computing, and PDFescape is the first to bring this future to the PDF file format.”

 At this time PDFescape is compatible with all operating systems supporting Firefox 1.5+ or 2+, Internet Explorer 6+ or 7+, or Safari.
