Version Support

PSPDFKit runs on Android devices with:

  • Android 4.4 or newer / API level 19 or higher.

  • 32-bit or 64-bit ARM (armeabi-v7a with NEON / arm64-v8a) or 32-bit or 64-bit Intel x86 CPU.

For development, you will need:

  • Android Studio 3.6.3 or newer (or any other editor/IDE/build chain that supports Gradle).

  • To set your targetSdkVersion to 29.

  • We recommend building your Android apps using Android Gradle plugin 3.6.3 or higher.

We reevaluate the minimum Android version from time to time based on Google’s device statistics. As of July 2020, with supporting Android 4.4, you cover more than 97.1 percent of all devices on the market. See Statcounter Android OS versions and the AppBrain version distribution history for more information.

AndroidX Support

Starting with version 5.1 of PSPDFKit for Android, we’re using AndroidX instead of the support library. This means that your app also needs to be updated to use AndroidX. You can check out our migration guide here.
