Document sharing service Scribd launched “iPaper” today, a new format for web documents. iPaper allows you to view and upload PDF, Word, Excel and Powerpoint files. These iPpaer documents can be embedded in your sites or blogs. iPaper is lightweight and can be embedded as a flash widget like any Youtube video.
You need to upload your documents to Scribd, and these are converted to iPaper format in a matter of time. Other features of the iPaper include sharing, emailing, printing and search inside the documents.
Scribd also launched an API for iPaper, using these tools publishers can earn money by displaying adsense ads in their documents. The ad revenue is shared between the publisher and Scribd. Scribd QuickSwitch mode provides a code to paste in your sites, and all the documents you uploaded earlier will be converted to iPaper format. Source: GigaOm
