New v3.0 Android qPDF apps deliver text reflow, javascript and whole new look!

ATLANTA – November 1st, 2012 – Qoppa Software, a leading producer of PDF solutions, is proud to announce release 3.0 of its Android PDF apps, qPDF Notes – PDF Reader and Annotating App and qPDF Viewer – Free PDF Reader. This release includes major new features including a text reflow mode, support for Javascript in interactive forms, and a whole new look.

Use text reflow for a great reading experience

Text Reflow Mode: The text reflow feature allows for more effective reading of ebooks, magazines, and articles while on the go. Text reflow shows a text-only view of a PDF document and automatically reflows the content to fit the screen width as users zoom in and out. Font size can be increased or decreased according to reading preferences. This view provides an exceptional reading experience on smaller Android phones and tablets by eliminating the need for horizontal scrolling.

 

Javascript Support: The added support for Javascript in version 3.0 greatly improves user experience when filling interactive PDF forms by implementing:

  • form field calculations to automatically compute the value of given fields from other fields.
  • form field validation to prevent users from entering invalid data and ensuring that all required data is filled in.
  • form field formatting to facilitate the capture of special format fields such as dates, social security, phone numbers, etc…

A New Look: The user interface was reinvented to accommodate the many functions offered in the app and give users quick and easy access to core features. The Action bar was changed to add the following menus:

  • “File” menu to open, save, or send/share files.
  •  “View” menu to change to text reflow mode, go to the outline / bookmarks / comments pane, go to page, zoom, and lock the navigation overlay.
  • “Document” menu to add new pages, flatten annotations and fields, or go to the fast form fill view.

In addition, all colors and icons were redesigned for a streamlined, sleek new look consistent with the overall Android Holo style.

Add Image

Add Images: Version 3.0 adds the ability to easily add images / pictures as annotations onto PDF documents or add them to interactive PDF form image fields. Images can come from the device, cloud services or directly from the camera, simplifying the daily routine of professionals such as home inspectors or insurance agents when creating inspection reports.

To celebrate qPDF Notes’ new release, the app is offered at 50% discount through December. Users who are currently evaluating qPDF Notes Demo are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to upgrade to qPDF Notes Full Version.

Qoppa Software makes the PDF technology found in its apps available in an Android PDF SDK for Android developers to integrate into their own apps.

Qoppa’s Android products are available for all Android phones and tablets 2.1 or higher including: Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy S2 and S3, Asus Transformer Prime, Acer Iconia, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 10.1, Motorola XOOM, Kindle Fire, Nook Color, Blackberry Playbook and devices with custom ROMs.

About Qoppa Software:
Qoppa Software specializes in the development of high-end libraries and applications to work with PDF documents. Qoppa Software offers a suite of highly portable products that cover every aspect of PDF processes and integrate seamlessly into document work flows, including end-user, server and PDF library products.

True Digital Signatures with qPDF Notes

True Digital Signatures with qPDF Notes

Atlanta – April 12, 2012 – Android device users finally have the ability to validate and apply true digital signatures to PDF documents with the new 2.2 release of qPDF Notes, Qoppa Software’s PDF Android app. Also in this release are improved editing of annotations properties, and additional user interface improvements.

qPDF Notes 2.2 is the only Android PDF tool with the ability to apply true digital signatures directly from an Android device. The app allows the user to choose which digital signing certification to use: create self signed certificates, or import digital certificates issued by a certificate authority such as Verisign or Thawte. Digital certificates are PKCS files with a .p12 or .pfx filename extension.

qPDF Notes also enables the digital signature’s appearance to be fully customized by adding a handwritten signature (through a finger gesture) and by overlaying an image such as a company logo.

“Qoppa’s suite of tools to validate and apply electronic signatures on PDF documents is now extended to mobile devices. Our users have been signing documents on Windows, Mac and Linux with our desktop tool PDF Studio for years. They can now sign PDF documents on the go with qPDF Notes.“ says Qoppa President Gerald Holmann.

Qoppa Software also makes these new features available in the latest version of qPDF Toolkit for Android developers to integrate PDF features into their own apps.

qPDF Notes works on all Android phones and tablets 2.1 and higher including: Asus Transformer Prime, Acer Picasso, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung Galaxy Note, Motorola XOOM, Toshiba, Lenovo Thinkpad, Kindle Fire, Nook, and devices with custom ROMs. qPDF Notes is also available on Blackberry Playbook 2.
