Software Update: Foxit Reader for Pocket PC

Spread the love

The regular visitor to the junk tracker is probably familiar with Foxit Reader, the small, fast and free alternative to Adobe Acrobat Reader. Foxit Software now offers a version for the Pocket PC for the first time. The software works on a Pocket PC 2002 or higher and can be started from the file explorer after installation. Since this is the first release, there is no changelog, but we do have the following release notes for you:

Foxit Reader PPC is small (the download size is less than 1MB), so you can download it quickly. You don’t need any installation, just unzip it on your desktop PC and copy it over to your device.

Foxit Reader PPC supports almost all PDF features supported by desktop version of Foxit Reader, except JPEG2000 or JBIG2 encoded images, and ICC color profiles. However these modules can be added on later for OEM licensees.

Foxit Reader PPC has a small footprint (about 1.4MB), and consumes little memory compared to any other PDF readers on PPC platform. 14 standard Latin fonts are also included in the package.[break]
