Corporate Smalltalk Consulting has announced Fax Reader 1.8.0 for iOS, an update to their document viewer app that allows the user to view the TIF files generated by office fax machines. Fax Reader works by supplementing the existing document display logic found in iOS, which only displays the first page of a fax but does not show subsequent pages. Fax Reader solves this problem by letting you see all the pages.
Their document viewer/handler app that allows the user to either view the TIF files generated by standard office fax machines, or convert them to PDF documents for other apps to use.
As faxes are increasingly emailed to save on paper costs, Fax Reader works by supplementing the existing document display logic found in iOS, which will only display the first page of a fax but not allow access to subsequent pages. The app includes newly enhanced variable page height support, and functions as a document handler by providing “Open in…”, clipboard, and Photo library support functionality.
Fax Reader enables viewing of multi-page faxes by first importing the entire file into its storage area. Once imported, the file undergoes one-time pre-rendering that ensures the fax is optionally re-scaled to be optically correct and to provide the fastest possible rendering when viewing as a multi-page document. The user can copy documents into Fax Reader by using iTunes to copy files into, delete, or copy them out of the app. Users can also ask Fax Reader to open documents from other apps, like Apple’s Mail.
