Readdle, a recognized market leader in iPhone and iPad application publishing, announced today that it is celebrating its 5th anniversary. With more than 2 million users of its paid iOS applications ranging from self employed individuals to 80 percent of the Fortune 500 list, Readdle is one of the most successful software development companies working on the App Store.

"Thanks to the innovative ideas and thoughtful design, Readdle products have become a default choice for productivity tools for any iPhone and iPad owner. PDF Expert, Scanner Pro and Calendars have become reference applications in their categories. With a team based in the US and Europe, our company proved that it is possible to succeed in iOS application publishing and scale from a bootstrapped startup into a profitable company," says Igor Zhadanov, Readdle CEO. 

Back in August, 2007 the company released its first iPhone web application - Readdle, that allowed more than 350,000 people to read documents on the iPhone the whole year before the App Store appeared. Since the day one of the App Store, universal document viewer named ReaddleDocs debuted on the platform.

In 2009 Readdle launched Scanner Pro, pioneering the concept of scanning documents with the iPhone camera. The application has become one of the top 10 business applications for the iPhone in 20+ countries. Three years later the company was the first to bring scanning to the new iPad. Today Readdle product line includes 10 successful applications and after 5 years of effective work, the number of users who rely on Readdle products has risen to 5.5 million.

Over the last 5 years Readdle Team has created applications to expand core functionalities of the iPhone and iPad.

  • PDF Expert takes a major leap in turning the iPad into the tool for working with PDF files in the Post-PC world.
  • Scanner Pro for iPad and iPhone has substituted office scanner and fax machine, conveniently turning the iPhone/iPad into portable a scanner.
  • Calendars application helps people get organized and plan their schedule with the help of mobile devices.
  • Printer Pro application enabled wireless printing from the iPad or iPhone to any regular printer.
