Recently celebrating their 10th Anniversary, Kdan Mobile provides productivity and creativity tools and has accumulated over 150 million downloads during this period. Their flagship application, PDF Reader, has over 70 million users and has been featured in the Play Store for the past three years, and in the App Store this year.
