iPhone PDF file handling

Hello, I need the handling source for pdf files on the iPhone.
It's because it's so complex in dealing to the pdf files with Quartz framwork.
If Ti have some solutions, I will not hesitate to buy it.

Please, let me know about the solution urgently!

  • Not sure what you mean but If you mean downloading pdf's then look in Kitchensink, the download example downloads a pdf and displays it.

  • the webview is the only weak available solution using Titanium.
    the other way is to write a library (using quartz) and make it available for Titanium.
    i'm going thru this way.. if someone already knows a library or a good source code to start it would be great because i can focus just on make this code/lib interfaceable to Titanium…

    • Quartz is only for iOS isn't it?
      What if you want to be cross-platform?

    • our customers are not interested in cross platform, they want a very good pdf viewer. the standard pdf viewer via webview has too few features. would be great find a library and be able to make it available via the appcelerator module feature.

  • Hi,

    I'm the developer of PDFTouch SDK which is a PDF rendering framework for iOS that also has a module for Appcelerator apps. You can use it to display PDF files in your app or make apps like the iBooks app.
