Words from our CEO
The MagLoft team just wrapped up a two-week Hackathon where we all got together in our office in Bali, Indonesia. MagLoft is a semi-remote team so it was a great opportunity for all of us to get together!
Our goal with this Hackathon was to re-launch FlexPDF and to make it completely free to use for anyone who wants to convert their PDF to HTML. The Hackathon was a HUGE success and I’m really proud of what the team achieved.
Not only did we complete all the goals we set, but we were able to include an amazing stretch goal! FlexPDF now supports our PDF Toggle View feature! This let’s your readers switch between PDF and HTML view which is perfect for mobile readers!
Honestly, I don’t know if we can keep this feature on a forever free plan, so I encourage you to check our FlexPDF today and let us know what you think.
