Reader Mobile Software Development Kit (SDK)

The Reader Mobile SDK (RMSDK) is a source code implementation of Adobe System's eBook document engine. The engine provides the ability to:

  • Interpret and render PDF documents
  • Interpret and render of EPUB files
  • Support Adobe Content Server 4 DRM
  • Support integration with Adobe Digital Editions (ADE)

To learn more about Reader Mobile SDK visit the Adobe Systems blog.

The SDK is delivered as C++ source code with reference ports for Linux on ARM, Windows Mobile, Apple iOS and Android.

Adobe Digital Editions (ADE), a generic electronic reader application that can be used to purchase and read ebooks, is provided by Adobe Systems and built using RMSDK. ADE is not tied to any book store, and cannot be branded or customized.

The Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology in RMSDK controls access to ePub and PDF files, and the product will render ePub and PDF documents containing Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters sets.

Datalogics provides developers support to get their applications to market as part of the standard license agreement. Datalogics can deliver fully functional viewers on a consulting basis.

To make sure that your custom viewer, built using RMSDK, will work with content licensed through Adobe Content Server, Datalogics provides developers with access to Adobe Content server for development and testing purposes and will certify applications and devices for Content Server compliance.

Free content delivered from your content server does not require a royalty per unit. Free content should be non-DRM books.
