One of the salient features introduced in this release is the conversion of PDF to Tiff and vice versa. The TiffDevice class can be used to get these capabilities. This new release also offers the feature to convert PDF documents to BMP format using the BmpDevice class.

The latest release includes a class named PdfViewer which provides the capabilities to print PDF documents. As we know that Android does not have any standard functionality for printing but Google provides “Cloud Printing” tool which may be used for this purpose. Also, please note that Google Printing recommends using PDF documents for better results, so with the help of Aspose.PDF for Android, you can convert most of your resource files to PDF format and then try using Google printing for this purpose.

Furthermore, if your requirement is to print a certain range of pages, you can use our API to select the particular page range and they try using the above-stated instructions to print the documents.

In this new version, the table and Graph objects rendering features are one of the key improvement areas. Please download and start evaluating the new release of Aspose.PDF for Android 1.5.0
