We know you would have many questions for the return of PDF Max. Let’s figure them out!

The big question…

Why would PDF Max 6 come to life so late as PDF Max 5 being released 2 years ago?

We started working on PDF Max since 2011, and released it on the AppStore a year later in 2012 followed by the founding of Mobeera team. In 2016, Mobeera was dismissed, putting a hold on the development of PDF Max for both iOS and Android platforms. From 2018, Ngoc Truong  – the original founder of Mobeera, is in charge of the development of PDF Max for iOS, and rebranded the team as the PDF Max Team. We will update soon on the status of the development of PDF Max for macOS & PDF Max for Android.

How about the well-know DirectOpen™ feature?

This has been a signature feature of PDF Max since 2012, and it will be still being included in PDF Max 6.

Learn More

PDF Max is the world’s first mobile PDF app which allowed users to work directly with documents stored on cloud services (e.g Dropbox, Box, etc) without the need of a manual sync action.

In July 2017, Dropbox has deprecated their API version 1 – where PDF Max 5 and older used for the DirectOpen feature. As we are not able to maintain PDF Max since 2016 due to the lack of resources, PDF Max was not able to work with Dropbox since July 2017. Google Drive also changed their API policy since April 2017 and make it impossible for PDF Max users to sync with Google Drive.

The good news is, that will be a thing in the past since PDF Max 6 now offers a seamless integration with any cloud storage providers available for the AppStore.

What about support?

We will offer support mostly on our self-help center, and on our Facebook channel for other cases.
