If you are using many productivity apps on iOS, one of them is created by Readdle. The Ukrainian company has built some of the biggest and best software for success, such as Spark, Scanner Pro, PDF Expert etc.
Readdle announced the first app in 2007, just a few months after the first iPhone was released. Since then, we have made 40 products and assembled 135 teams in 8 locations throughout the world.
This week, Readdle achieved a major milestone of 100 million downloads. Here is the way it happened.
