U.S. software company Adobe Systems Inc said on Monday it had moved Acrobat.com out of public beta testing and would charge subscribers to use the online version of its popular PDF reader software Acrobat.
The maker of Photoshop, Flash and Acrobat software said it would charge subscribers for two new services that add capacity and capabilities for intensive business use.
Adobe will charge $14.99 per month for the basic service, which allows Web meetings for up to five participants and online conversion of 10 uploaded documents to PDF per month.
For the premium plus service, which has meeting capacity for up to 20 people and unlimited online creation of PDF files, Adobe will charge $39 per month.
Five million people have signed up to use Acrobat.com since it was launched in June 2008, Adobe said.
