What is the best platform for displaying interactive PDFs on a tablet?

We want to produce a series of interactive PDFs which will be viewed on iPads by our employees in a retail environment (in 350+ locations in our region). We are looking for a delivery platform which will give us the following:

  • A clean, easy-to-use interface (the less options the better)
  • The ability to update these PDFs remotely
  • The option to view these PDFs in a ‘library’.

We would really like to utilise the interactive and video aspects of interactive PDFs, so ideally the delivery platform would allow this.

Does anyone know of a piece of software (an app or a web-app), or an alternative delivery method that ticks these boxes?


I still do not have clear what you mean by interactive.

Interactive can be from having a menu and then jumping into a section or asambling a game like 3D model.

A pdf can not be “Updated”, you need to download it. But you probably can download just the first file and then link to other resources.

But in reality I would totally go for a web aplication… aka a web page.

Besides that point, the option to realy having control on your pdf is https://acrobat.adobe.com/us/en/ You can design the pdf somewhere else, but to give it more interaction you need that.
