Learn why we chose to give away PDF Viewer for free.

After more than 6 years of providing the industry leading PDF framework for companies such as Dropbox, Evernote, Box, IBM, and United Airlines, we (PSPDFKit GmbH) have finally made our technology available to everyone with our new app, PDF Viewer, now available for iOS and on Android

Our goal is to build the best PDF Viewer and Editor on the market and make it affordable to everyone. Our primary business is the SDKs that power PDF Viewer on iOS, Android and the Web.

Our app will help us raise the bar for everyone as to what a great PDF viewing/editing experience is, which will in turn help us sell our SDKs. With a higher standard expected for everyone, we'll improve the ecosystem across both iOS and Android.

PDF Viewer will collect anonymous analytics which help us understand how the app is being used and further improve it. You can opt out of this at any time by disabling Ad Tracking in the iOS Privacy settings. We voluntarily honor this flag and will no longer send anonymous usage statistics.

We also offer a PDF Viewer Pro subscription, with even more useful features, such as merging documents.
