Step 1: Integrate PDFTron SDK for Xamarin.Android

Welcome to PDFTron. This guide will show you how to integrate a free trial of the PDFTron Xamarin SDK into your Xamarin.Android application. You can either integrate the PDFTron packages automatically through the Nuget manager, or install them manually by downloading the SDK. Pick whichever option you prefer, but integrating with Nuget is the recommended approach. Your free trial includes unlimited trial usage and support from solution engineers.

Integrate With Nuget


  • Minimum: API 16 (Using Android Support Libraries)
  • Recommended target: API 30
  • Latest version of Visual Studio
No trial license key required.
The trial of PDFTron SDK works without a license key. A commercial license key is required for use in a production environment. Please fill out our licensing form if you do not have a valid license key.
Keep your commercial license key confidential.
