You could try Picsel Smart Office. It handles PDFs natively, and zooming is quite easy. Disclosure: I work for Picsel.

Dropbox wasn't made to be a PDF reader, instead it's an application to have your files wherever you go. So I have two great suggestions for you: ezPDF Reader - This is the best PDF reading application I ever seen for Android. I use it every time I need to read any kind of PDF on my Motorola Droid. Adobe Reader - A free alternative for ezPDF. Made by Adobe ...

Aldiko: Only does non-DRM'd ePubs. There are thousands of these books available but you're not going to be getting newly released copyrighted books. Great user interface but the no DRM limitation is a problem. Aldiko also has a paid app that has more features but it still doesn't let you load new DRM'd books from the major retailers.

Android 2.1 doesn't have any preloaded ebook readers but specific phones may have something preloaded. The pre-loaded apps depend on the carrier, but regardless you can download different ebook readers from the Android App Market for free. Unfortunately none of the current ebook readers are a complete solution as they all have major limitations. Here are ...

Some are DRM protected, others aren't. One way I'm aware of to find out the ones that are DRM, is when you try to download the file for offline reading: If the extension is .acsm then its a DRM protected book. If the extension ends in .epub or .pdf then its not DRM. protected. Related reading: File types for reading on your device DRM options for ...

In the US, at least, most editions of the Galaxy S are shipped with Quick Office, a pretty functional document viewer that includes Word & PDF support. It's basic, but works. Beyond that, quite a few 3rd party apps are available on the market, including Adobe Reader, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, and a handful of readers supporting non DRMed ...

I am not sure about Foxit Reader, but I am using the paid ezPDF Reader. I am really amazed about its ability to show and fit the content to screen when reading columns of text (like in newspaper). It has other super features like horizontal scroll and automatic scroll to next part.

Assuming, you have a Nexus, the internal memory should show up as a normal SD card would in other phones. When you connect your phone to a PC and then MOUNT it, it ought to show up as a removable drive. You can use Aldiko - it's an eBook reader (currently freeware) that works well with epubs. Copy the .epub file and drop it in your phone (after mounting) ...

Install RepliGo PDF Reader and switch to Text Reflow mode. It has one of the best Text Reflow mode till date which displays images too. But, to read codes, you'll have to fight again. Another option: Use ezPDF Reader Lite (or Pro) and use its text column locking feature in landscape orientation (to kick out blank margins and use large device height as width ...

Aldiko is an eBook reader that reads PDFs as well, remember the last page you were at and on top of that allows you to set bookmarks, something that Adobe Reader and most other readers I tried won't let you do. Bookmarks are a must have for me so I chose Aldiko.

Yes, an eBook from Android Market (in Google Books) has a different format from the Kindle. It would seem that you can obtain Google books in either ePub or PDF (more information here). Amazon books are in the AZW format. This comes down to personal preference. I have read books on both Google Books and Kindle on my Xoom; I see little to no difference in ...

If you have a PC, try the Calibre program. I converts almost every kind of ebook into every other format of ebook. So you can convert any pdf into any format our Android device can read in whatever program you have or are accustomed with. Best of all, it's free ! The pdf reader from Adobe is a big program to install on the phone ... and aside from that: I ...

PDFs are easily readable, in my books. Adobe's Reader app is actually pretty good, not bloated like the desktop version. As for conversion, Google probably does a better job of giving you info that I could. The first result for this search is a site that will convert to the ePub format, for example. Adobe Reader for Android:

RepliGo Reader ($5) allows you to copy text and to make annotations. Also, if you convert them to epubs the Nook app allows you to make notes. It may let you copy text on a non-DRM'd book but I don't have any of those so I'm not able to test it. (Just note that while the Nook lets you read PDFs the Nook app currently doesnt.

Kindle: Marketplace - Amazon.com Format - .azw (DRM'd), .txt, .mobi About - I like this app. It's easy to switch your reading settings (brightness, font size...) on the fly. You can note and lookup text. It automatically syncs with all your devices so you can put one down and pick up reading on another right where you left off. As of v2 you can ...

It currently doesn't sync outside content with your phone, no pdfs, txts, emails... only kindle books you get from amazon. I have tried to manually load pdfs with no luck. I believe the functionality is planned but not yet implemented.

ezPDF does bookmarking, multicolor highlighting, annotation list, etc... and it is saved to with the PDF when later open it in Skim. idk what epub is, but it sounds similar to what ezPDF does

Txtr purports to support both, but hasn't gotten very good reviews. Speak Text Easy and MultiReader are primarily for text-to-speech, but they both appear to support both file formats.

There's also Documents to Go which is a suite - allows for viewing / editing of MS Office docs. PDF support as well. No conversion needed. An additional plus point is that the paid version integrates with Google Docs online allowing a user to view and edit your files from your Google Docs account directly in Docs To Go. Any changes you make can be saved and ...

ezPDF has an option to remove this overlay: Bring up the popupmenu, tick Settings. In the Link section there is a checkbox marked "Indicate Link". Uncheck and the Ln overlay is gone. Version 1.9.5.3

It sounds to me like Alkido 1.1 was bundled on your device as a system app. To remove a system app, you need root. There are two ways to address this easily, I would prefer #1 myself. Method 1 Uninstall Alkido 2.0. Install Titanium Backup. Run Titanium and wait for it to load your app list. Go to the app list and long-press on Alkido 1.1. Choose ...

If you allow non-Appstore apps to be installed in your device, you can install Dropbox from their website. To do that, Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the Kindle Fire home screen to activate the Settings window Click More Scroll down to Device Scroll down to ‘Allow Installation of Applications from Unknown Sources’ and move the slider ...

There are several apps you might check (ordered best recommendation first): Moon+ Reader Pro is the best ebook reader I know. Support for the important formats (txt, html, epub, pdf, umd, fb2, chm, zip -- pdf only in the pro, said to be the fastest PDF renderer on Android), plenty libraries pre-configured to download books from (you can add your own ...

qPDF Viewer - a free ad-free Android PDF Reader - also has a great text reflow mode. Users can zoom in and out to increase or decrease the font size. Look for "Reflow Text" under the action toolbar "View" menu.

At Adobe Reader click on top part of screen, then you will see top toolbar. At toolbar you need 4 button from right corner of toolbar.

As the answer to Are Google Books DRM protected? explains, ACSM files are DRM-protected, so you can only read them in the Play Books app itself, not in another ebook app. Once you've "pinned" the book and it has downloaded, you can read it offline in the Play Books app.

I prefer FbReader but none of the android readers are as good as Stanza for iPhone. I find them all quite disappointing:(.

It seems you cannot achieve this on built-in Nook app. Fortunately, you are using two android devices since there are many solutions for reading on android devices. Install Moon + reader under the assistance of Dropbox on your android phone and Nook color. You can also keep the same reading progress in this method. guide

Evernote will allow you to add pdfs to your notebooks. Evernote is available for the NC as well as for Android and iOS. Once the pdf is in a notebook, it'll sync via Evernote.

I don't believe that functionality works yet. I have tried to sideload PDFs and plain .txt files and they don't register in "My Library" or under "My Files" and obviously they don't sync between my devices. I also can't find a web interface for loading non-nook files. I did a little searching around a couple months ago and I found a few unsubstantiated ...
