Is there a way to search the text of PDFs? For example I want to be taken to the page with the word "dog" and have it highlighted? I can't find a way with Amazon Kindle or ezPDF reader. Initially I made this question app specific but at this point I don't care; I will use any app that can search PDFs.

The PDF can be searched on my desktop computer.

  • Amazon Kindle App does not support PDF search. Its only applicable for your kindle ebooks.

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:

And there are many other applications that can highlight a searched text in PDF, like Adobe Reader, MoonReader+, Quickoffice, etc.
