I'm working with PDFTron PDFNet Mobile SDKs and need to be able to target both x86 and ARM architectures. Is there any way to accomplish this?
Yes you can run an app on any device (x86, x64 and ARM). If
you are using an x86 device, you need to use x86 or x64 library, whichever is
appropriate. If you are using an ARM device (such as the MS Surface), then you
need to use the ARM library.
The way it works (in both Windows 8 App store and Google
Play) is that you would submit two identical apps (i.e. one version for x86 and
another for ARM). When your app user decides to install the app ‘Windows 8 App
Store’ or ‘Google Play’ will automatically select, download, and install the appropriate version. On Android (but not on WinRT) you can bundle multiple libs (.SOs) in a single APK however this is not recommended since it bloats the file size of the app.
We can provide even smaller custom build variants but keep in mind that just standard PDF resources take at least 3MB so there may not be much to gain with further reductions.
