FREMONT, Calif. - November 30, 2011 - Foxit® Corporation, a leading provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and securing PDF documents, today announced the release of the Foxit Mobile PDF app for the Amazon’s Appstore for Android and Google’s Android Market. Mobile PDF is more than just a PDF reader; it also provides advanced display, collaboration tools, and document page management capabilities. Mobile PDF is based on Foxit Reader technology, which is the favorite desktop PDF reader of over 100 million users worldwide.

Mobile devices are typically not the only devices that mobile users utilize. Most mobile users still use desktop systems due their increased screen size, powerful computing resources (CPU, memory, and disk), full keyboard, and mouse. When they are on the go, they shift from desktop systems to a smaller tablets and/or smartphones. When making this transition, mobile users don’t want to change applications or use "watered down" versions of their desktop applications. They want to continue to use the same features with a common user experience making the transition seamless. Foxit lightweight architecture and platform independent technology uniquely provides this seamless transition to mobile PDF users.

Foxit Mobile PDF’s standout features include:
