Updates arrive this month for the Foxit PDF SDK with its 4.1 version boasting of its abilities to allow developers to integrate PDF rendering, navigation, creation, searching, annotation, protection, PDF text extraction, image conversion, form data collections and editing capabilities — with Android and iOS applications.
Foxit PDF SDK is targeted to application developers whose applications need to use standard-compliant PDF technology to display, edit, annotate, format, organize, and search PDF documents and to fill PDF forms. The updated SDK allow users to interact with PDF documents and forms across server, desktop, and mobile platforms.
Typical uses of the Foxit PDF SDK are for enterprise class applications, cloud services, desktop applications, and mobile apps that have a requirement to interact with PDF documents and forms — and many times these applications span across multiple platforms.
"This is where the PDF SDK excels due to its multi-platform support, enabling developers to deliver a consistent user experience to all users regardless of the platform they are using," says the company.
Developers can write code for their application front ends that can be ported to different platforms. The Foxit PDF SDK shares the same underlying technology that powers Google's open-source PDFium project.
The Foxit PDF SDK is a PDF library that includes an OOM (out of memory) handling capability to give applications the power to recover from an OOM condition. For Android, the SDK ships with C/Android Java interface and C APIs. For iOS, the SDK ships with a C interface.
