Developers Can Now Quickly Create Compelling PDF Applications for Smartphones and Tablets

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2016) - Foxit® Software, a leading software provider of fast, affordable, secure and connected PDF solutions, today introduced its Rapid Development Kit (RDK) for Mobile PDF. Already recognized as having one of the fastest and most powerful rendering engines on the market, Foxit Software created its Mobile PDF RDK to dramatically reduce developer workloads, enabling them to complete projects more simply with fewer lines of code -- the new RDK, including a high-level API and built-in UI, allows developers to have a prototypes up-and running in less than 5 minutes.

"We are committed to providing sophisticated, powerful technologies to developers, and are delighted to release Foxit Mobile PDF RDK to enable rapid development and lightning speed setup time. It's significantly faster, with better memory handling, than any other offering on the market," said Rowan Hanna, VP of Product Solutions at Foxit SDK.

The Foxit PDF Core API is the basis for the Rapid Development Kit, containing the functions used in the Viewer Control and UI Extensions Component. The Platform API can be used independently for document rendering, analysis, text extraction, text search, annotation creation, manipulation and much more. The Mobile PDF SDK has already shown better font and layout accuracy than other comparable products, with impressive search capability.

The advanced viewer control utility includes a set of easy-to-use APIs for displaying PDF files on iOS and Android. Working together with core APIs, viewer control provides fast and high quality PDF rendering, zooming, scrolling, page view modes and page navigation.

The Foxit PDF SDK team envisages an exciting roadmap for the Mobile PDF SDK in the coming months, continuously adding new capabilities from its world-class developer team to ensure a streamlined customer experience.
