Concept: Create an app for a better experience reading pdf books in mobile.

Stack:

  • Mobile app: IOS (swift native)

Problem: The experience to read pdf in mobile is the worst, the pdf is not responsive.

Technical challenges:

  • PDF is bad. Although it is called a “document” PDF, it is nothing like Word or HTML document. PDF is more like graphic representation. PDF contents are just a bunch of instructions that tell you how to place things in each position on a screen or paper. In most cases, it has no logical structure, such as sentences or paragraphs, and can not adapt when the paper size changes.
  • The libraries and frameworks to parse pdf in ios are very limited.
