Readdle: Year in Review 2016

If 2016 could be called anything, that would be ‘crazy’. Rockets landing on drone ships, thousands of new startups rising and falling, the boom of AI, machine learning and self-driving cars, not to mention all the political changes.

The competition gets tougher every day, and the speed of changes is breakneck.

But you know what? It’s all good! This year we’ve shipped new products and grown to 100 people on the team with one major goal – to help you be more productive and create the best experiences while using iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch.

Let’s have a quick recap of 2016 and what it brought to you!

Stay on top of the scanning game

The best scanning quality in the industry, text recognition and automated workflows to save your time are the main principles upon which Scanner Pro 7 was built. This major update has kept Scanner Pro ahead of the competition.

Easily manage files on iOS

The Documents app has introduced a new file system that changed the way you manage files on your iPhone or iPad. Now you can easily integrate all cloud services in one place and download anything from the Web. If Finder was available on iOS, it would probably be called Documents.

Enjoy the best PDF experience on Mac

By launching the new PDF Expert 2 for Mac, we have created the best PDF editor for people who work with digital documents. You can finally edit that invoice quickly, fix a typo at the last moment and enjoy an eye-candy interface.

Love your email again

2016 is the year Spark, our intelligent email app, became available across all Apple devices. After a crazy start on iPhone and based on your positive feedback, we couldn’t but launch it on Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. And yes, Spark for Mac was crowned as “Best of 2016” by Apple!

New Year. New Us

We want to thank you for being with us on this journey. 2016 was a hell of a wild ride, and 2017 will be even better. Readdle team will continue creating the best in class services and products for you.

Up next: PDF Expert 6 for iOS with powerful editing capabilities, a new calendars app, Spark 2.0 that will change the way you collaborate, and this is just a glimpse of what’s coming.

We’re now putting much effort into innovations: R&D, AI and machine learning as we strive to build products that are smart, context-aware and complement each other in the best possible ways to make your life easier.
