Odessa, Ukraine – DAR Software, the publisher of business applications for iOS, announces the availability of Visio Touch 1.0, a new application for viewing and communicating on Visio diagrams for iPhone and iPad. Visio Touch enables mobile workers to open Visio diagrams, convert them to Portable Document Format, make notes in the resulting documents and share them in a variety of ways. The new application is available on the App Store.

With the ongoing robust adoption of iOS devices into enterprise technology infrastructure, the ability to access industry-specific file formats on smartphones and tablets becomes a matter of strategic importance. In particular, it applies to diagrams and schemes created with MS Visio, the de-facto standard for business and technical drawing, prevailing across the majority of organizations.

MS Visio lets users create visual documents for a wide scope of data and systems from business processes to IT infrastructure, networks, electrical systems and more. This information is often critical for managers, consultants, technicians and sales people working in the field. However, because of the limited capacities of mobile devices, the challenge to bring complete Visio tools to iOS platform remains a mission impossible task.

In this respect, Visio Touch provides an elegant and helpful solution for mobile users. It enables them to either instantly preview Visio documents or convert them to Adobe PDF. Built upon a powerful PDF processing engine, the application offers annotation tools for adding text, highlights, handwritten or shape-based notes and stamps over the existing drawings, when converted to the Adobe renowned format. Mobile workers benefit from the ability to capture information collected on-site and share it with an in-house team and other mobile users.

“Visio documents are efficient tools for communicating complex information. With Visio Touch mobile users can submit essential updates on data and systems presented in the diagrams. The application provides an efficient way to share these updates, comments, feedback and other notes straight within documents, thus becoming the first Visio viewer on iOS to offer collaborative user scenario,” said Olga Osadcha, the Product Manager of Visio Touch.

Additionally, Visio Touch ensures handy management of original and resulting files and allows users to instantly share them in a variety of ways – via Google Drive, Dropbox, by email or output them to print.
