Amazon.com has made an investment in Foxit Corp., a PDF technology company based in Fremont, Calif. — saying it plans to work with the company to improve the experience of reading PDFs on Amazon Kindle devices and Kindle apps.

The deal was announced this morning, with financial terms undisclosed.

“Kindle has long supported PDF as a document format that is independent of application software, hardware, or operating systems,” said Jeff Blackburn, an Amazon senior vice president, in the news release announcing the investment. “Foxit has an industry-leading PDF technology that we think will make the customer experience for PDFs on Kindle even better — we’re excited to back such a great team.”

Reading PDFs can be a complicated process on the Kindle, in some cases prompting customers to look for workarounds to improve the experience.
