Posted in Product Updates on

We're excited to announce PDF Viewer 2.0 for iOS! This release includes Drag and Drop support for files in the document browser and for text and images in a document. PDF Viewer 2.0 also sports a new design and a fresh look, alongside a redesigned sound annotation player and a dark keyboard in night mode. And a lot of improvements under the hood. Read on for all the details.

Drag and Drop

The main new feature of PDF Viewer 2.0 is Drag and Drop. You are now able to drag and drop files from the document browser out of the app and into the app by using the new Drag and Drop feature available on iOS 11. With this features reordering and organizing document became a lot easier.

Drag and drop not only works in the document browser, but also inside documents, allowing you to drag out text or images from a document. Pages also support dropping for text, images and even other PDFs. Dropped items are converted into the most appropriate annotation types, either free text or stamp.

Sound Annotation Player

We redesigned the sound annotation player to be more focused and visible throughout page changes, by positioning it on the bottom of the screen, right above the thumbnail bar.

Dark Keyboard

Now when you are in dark mode and a keyboard is shown, it will appear in a dark style, along with the bar on top of the keyboard. This way the keyboard is more in-line with the apps' style and doesn't blind you in dark environments.
