Reduce Time to Market for iOS, Android and UWP Applications

With so many users accessing documents over their mobile, mobile companies need to embed PDF functionality into their native applications to keep pace with competitors.

Whether simply adding a PDF viewer or more complex functionality such as editing, annotating and signing, PDF tools eliminate the need to reinvent the wheel.

A fully fledged PDF SDK such as Foxit PDF SDK for mobile gives developers the tools to bring applications to market with whatever PDF functionality they need, without needing to understand the minutiae of PDF specifications. Development time is significantly reduced.

Build Once, Deploy to Multiple Platforms

PDF has become the go-to document format for their stability and fidelity to the original source. This is just as true for documents accessed via mobile as via desktop. Foxit, through our MobilePDF SDK product, provides solutions that allow developers to build PDF-ready applications in no time.

As well as providing PDF solutions for iOS and Android, Foxit PDF SDK also supports UWP (Universal Windows Platform). Applications can be built once and deployed multiple times to multiple platforms, further reducing time to market in a fast changing mobile landscape.

Render Documents Quickly and Accurately Across a Variety of Devices

When accessing documents on the road or at home, personally or professionally, ease of access and high fidelity rendering is essential, no matter the device or platform.

With new devices and platforms being released every few months, new edge cases crop up consistently and can’t be predicted in advance. In 100% of trialled edge cases, Foxit PDF solutions successfully rendered the document – one less stress factor for developers.

Foxit PDF tools ensure PDF documents are always rendered in high fidelity, including typical problem cases such as color conversion, color shading, text annotation and font accuracy, and Foxit MobilePDF SDK optimizes these functions for the limited memory of a mobile phone.

When building enterprise-scale applications that may have thousands of users and process millions of documents, choosing high performing PDF tools allows fast rendering of even large documents over networks.

Foxit PDF SDK arms developers with the tools to develop enterprise-class PDF applications that fulfill all the needs of a sector that deals with cutting-edge mobile technology. Chosen by Google to be the underpinning technology for their open-source PDF engine for its versatility and power, it is the chosen PDF solution for major mobile companies such as HTC and Metro PCS.
