PSPDFKit – The leading framework for displaying and annotating PDFs on mobile.

The Case for Deprecating UITableView

UITableView is a cornerstone of classical iOS development and one of the oldest classes. It's used in pretty much all iOS apps and has been around since iPhone OS 2.0. So why would we propose deprecating one of the most used classes?

Simple: UICollectionView. Added in iOS 6 (2012), it's almost a perfect superset of UITableView, yet it can do so much more.

Creating a Compelling Today Widget

With our latest PDF Viewer update, 1.5, we are not only adding Spotlight search, 3D Touch gestures, Wi-Fi Drive, a lot of bug fixes, and improvements, but also a fresh, new Today widget. With App Extensions becoming more and more popular in the Apple ecosystem, developing a Today widget seemed practical. Creating a great user experience as well as a nice design were important to us and are easily done by using UIStackView, shared containers and Swift, while also making the widget look at home on both iOS 10 and iOS 9.
