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 ...

So far the closest that I found to Xournal in Android is RepliGo Reader or ezPDF Reader. They both Allow drawing of lines, curves, freehand, etc. Save the annotations/drawings within the PDF file But in my opinion both Apps do not use the full potential of what's possible with the Thinkpad Tablet and/or xournal. It may be subjective, but my colleguas who ...

Attachment2SD will do the trick. After you install it when you click on the PDF attachment in the Gmail app it'll pop-up the "Complete Action Using..." dialog. Choose Attachment2SD and it'll download to a directory on your SD card, where you can immediately open it or save it for later. This works with all kinds of files, not just PDF.

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 ...

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.

Technical answer: Yes. Practical answer: It's hard. You'll need: "Manual intent shortcuts" app to add really custom shortcuts on the desktop ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.cwfk.ig88.intents ). Plus: Knowledge how to generate a specific intent that does exactly what you want to do (install above app and see what information it wants, ...

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 ...

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.

Don't use the Gmail app, instead use your browser, go to gmail.com, mobile or desktop view doesn't matter, open the mail you want to download the pdf from click on the pdf icon and it will be downloaded automatically. About doing so with the Gmail app specifically, I've no idea, and that was how I dodge the pdf problem.

Direct editing of PDF content is something hard to achieve. As far as I know, the only solution for this is Qoppa PDF Notes. However: bookmarks (create & edit) and annotations (also create & edit) are possible. The best eBook-Reader on Android, also known as Moon+ Reader Pro, supports this not only for PDF (Pro only!) -- but also for EPUB and other ...

Theoretically ePub should have the advantage over PDF as it is a smaller file that is basially HTML, CSS and image files with a few XML files for defining the books metadata, chapter order and table of contents navigation zipped into 'ePub' format. It is in many ways like a website. The PDF files will often be larger as they have embedded fonts, image ...

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.

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:

Resistive touch and Capacitive touch will operate the apps the same way, the same way a laser and a mechanical mouse are two different technologies designed to do the same thing for the user. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, for instance try using your capacitive iphone screen with gloves or finger nails, it wont work. A capacitive screens are ...

If you allow non-Appstore apps to be installed in your device, you can install Dropbox from their website.

I just received an email from the developer, Don Choi. Citing it here in its entirety as an answer: The continuous scroll feature is in our big TO-DO list. It will eventually implemented later.We do not have a open forum. However, http://www.facebook.com/ezpdf is a good start. So more nifty things are on their way for this application.

Download and install Adobe Reader on your phone. You can find it by the link or by opening up Google Play / Market on your phone and searching for "Adobe Reader". There are lots of other pdf readers out there too, btw. Either download the PDFs from whatever website they are on using your browser (the built in browser is fine), or download them on your ...

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 ...

I know I'm coming in late here, but there are a couple more suggestions to convert/push documents to the KF: Mail it to your [your-kindle]@kindle.com address with 'convert' in the subject line. Use the Send to Kindle app (Mac version; Windows version link on page) which automates the process with drag-and-drop. The Send to Kindle bookmarklet claims to push ...

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.

Adobe Reader X for Android v10.3 now supports annotation, highlights and commenting. It is not open source, but it is free to the end user. There are currently no open source Android PDF utilities that have worthwhile annotation features.

I had the same problem and had to try out a bunch of apps. In addition to what you were looking for, I was also interested in the possibility to add comments during the presentation using the s-pen of my galaxy note. All the apps listed below support full page view, so there are in principle an options for presentations. Moon Reader Pro This is an ...

Try using floating apps. Multi window feature is only available on a few android devices like samsung Note, etc. Floating apps will provide similar functionality. Try this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lwi.android.flappsfull

Find the app that took over the PDF intent in Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications -> All, and then tap on Clear defaults button. Next time you click on a PDF file, it should prompt you which app to use. Check the Use by default for this action box, and tap on ezPDF Reader. Alternatively, you can try uninstalling and ...

Store PDFs in your Dropbox account and download them on Android using Dropbox app. When it comes to download from web, I never faced any problem with that, but if your default downloader suck at downloading PDFs, download them using Opera Mobile web browser. Opera Mobile has in-built downloader. It doesn't hand over downloading to system-wide download ...

When Repligo talks about "bookmarks", it does not mean the "paper clip to remember your last reading position". It rather speaks in terms of PDF specifics, where "bookmarks" are what is commonly referred to as "table of contents" (or in short: TOC), see RepliGo Reader for Android Features. And that's something the creator sets, not the reader. But the same ...

Amazon has just updated their Kindle app to offer a two column layout for tablets. I was thrilled that they did this. Google Pay Book reader has that two page layout and I really preferred that on my tablet. Kindle app will also read PDF files. I don't think it will do EPUB but there might be a converter out there to make it into Kindle format. There are ...

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 ...
