Core Viewer

As the most advanced PDF viewer on the market, the Core Viewer serves as the foundation of our frameworks. It combines exceptional performance with the ability to incorporate various multimedia content, text search and extensive document management features.

Where it makes sense, platform-specific idioms and features have been added - please refer to our documentation to see where. Learn more
Annotations Illustration


Use an array of features such as drawings, highlights, notes, stamps, free text, images, sound recordings, and so much more. PSPDFKit for iOS supports all common annotation types and includes a great style controller to customize them exactly how your users want them.

Support for Annotations on Android has just been released. Highlight, Underline, StrikeOut, Squiggle, Ink, Note, and FreeText annotations are already supported and we're working hard to extend support to all annotation types supported by iOS. Learn more
Forms Illustration


By supporting PDF AcroForms, the most commonly used standard, users are able to fill out and submit forms with ease. With our Forms component, a user has the ability to save changes in the PDF or enter valuable information that can be accessed and submitted to a server.

Support for Forms is not available for Android, yet. See the Forms feature page for more details. Learn more
