The SDK is aimed at helping software developers in any industry to build apps with robust PDF functionality no matter their experience of using PDF SDKs. Using the most popular development languages and frameworks, app developers who use Foxit PDF SDK can leverage the company’s powerful, PDF 2.0 compliant technology to securely display, edit, annotate, format, organize, secure, search and fill out PDF forms. Additionally, the PDF SDK 6.1 includes a built-in, embeddable PDF Viewer, making the development process easier and faster.

Foxit PDF SDK 6.1 is available across all major platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, UWP, and Web and includes some of the most advanced technology in the PDF industry to take your application to the next level. This release includes additions to the SDK as well as improvements to existing features. These include:
- Cordova, Kotlin, Xamarin and React Native Support: Foxit PDF SDK provides support for Xamarin, Cordova, and React Native on Android and iOS, and Kotlin on Android. Now developers can develop a native mobile application in an environment and a language they are familiar with while saving time and utilizing the development team already in place.
- Redaction: Foxit has added a new redaction demo that shows the true force that the feature can offer. Foxit PDF SDK’s redaction feature is fully customizable with the ability to add redactions both in the client-side and programmatically so that users can protect sensitive information quickly and effortlessly.
- Improved Embedded Font Support: Instead of statically embedding the font on creation, which prevents it from being changed back, PDF SDK allows users to set any font to embedded font by simply calling the API.
- Associated files: With Foxit PDF SDK 6.1, users can add, edit and delete associated files within PDF documents. Users also have the ability to attach many types of files including XML, PDF, PPT, CSV, and .doc.
