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 ...

To answer my own question: while I haven't found a completely satisfactory solution to this problem, I have discovered in Adobe's Reader app the "Recents" list - which shows recently read documents in the descending order of last-opened date. This, combined with the fact that the Reader app remembers the position of each document that you read, and the fact ...

As long as your tablet is running Android 4.1 or newer then there are a number of music players that can put player controls in the Notification area on your device. This is so that you can just access the notification bar while you're running another app, without exiting the original app. I haven't got a screenshot handy of how it looks on a tablet, but ...

I think it depends on the PDF, if it is searchable or not, for ezPDF does have a search function that highlight the searched text, as you can see in the image below: Screenshot (click image for larger variant) And there are many other applications that can highlight a searched text in PDF, like Adobe Reader, MoonReader+, Quickoffice, etc.

Aside from the usual battery-saving tips (like disabling data / Wi-Fi), you could use an app like Screen Filter to reduce the brightness of the device; this reduces power consumption. If available, you might also invert the colors in your reader app. For example, ezPDF Reader has a Night mode feature which makes the background black and the text white (as ...

Adobe Reader does not seem to have that feature. Why not try ezPDF Reader? It supports whole word searches.

Recommendation questions are not allowed here, but I'll give this a shot because I have already encountered this feature. ezPDF Reader supports this. Assuming you have a table of contents (TOC), clicking on a chapter link will take you to a page far from the TOC. If you click on the button encircled below, it will take you back to the TOC.

If you need an app to read ebooks, I would suggest Tap2Speak Reader. It doesn't have as many features as those popular ones, but is sufficient for your situation. In addition, it can use Google Translate to speak more than 50 languages. It saves you much time from finding a "usable" text-to-speech engine.

I have been using MobileSheets recently and have used it with big band charts that I scanned in as PDF files. The nice feature I found was the ability to set links (up to 10 per song) back to a D.S, sign and then from the "to coda" sign jump there using a Airturn 105 pedal. Worked great in a performance where I had the set list set up and could just keep ...

Agreed, I think MobileSheets or the Fakebook (my favourite) is the way to go. Quick browsing in music and (almost) no delay when swiping between pages. Some of the other features between these two varies, so YMMV. Fakebook is at http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.skrivarna.fakebook.android Hope this helps!

It is very simple. On the lower left corner of the page you are on there is the page number. If you do not see it touch this place and the page number will appear. For example if you are on page 54 in a file 700 pages long you will see 54/700. You touch the number 54 and a request "Go to page" will appear with a supporting touch keyboard. You print the page ...
