Integrating PDF SDK into an existing APP is a convenient way to edit PDFs wherever or whenever you want.



Online editing can be achieved by calling the API. This is also the more mainstream method for people who often edit PDFs online.


On-device SDK

Developers integrate PDF annotations and conversion functions into their applications on Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, web, and Linux, whether it’s a new APP or integrated into an existing one. It will not be restricted by the network, and it is also a guarantee of file security.


In some cases, you may need to edit PDF text directly, such as small typos or details that need to be modified. See more details here. Sometimes you need to add comments, such as the construction industry. The drawings need to be marked directly on the document, see more details here. To find a better solution than using existing APPs like Adobe Acrobat, explore more possibilities by integrating PDF SDK into your APP or system.
