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 ...

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.

I had the same problem using Firefox on Android - totally maddening - but fixed it. After installing Google Drive all my links to pdfs would open with Google Drive PDF Viewer. I fixed it by, in Firefox, going to about:config in the location bar, then finding "browser.download.preferred.application/pdf" and doing a Reset there. The next time I clicked on a ...

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.

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 ...

Actually, I found that all downloaded files are always stored in /mnt/sdcard/Download no matter they are "opened" or "saved" so I can grab them from there with any file manager

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 ...

Technical answer: Yes. Practical answer: It's hard.

Direct editing of PDF content is something hard to achieve. As far as I know, the only solution for this is Qoppa PDF Notes.

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 ...

I think you misunderstand what e-ink is. It is nothing like LED or LCD pixels. Resolution has nothing to do with it. Typical displays emit light. You can use them in the dark and they will light up your face. E-ink displays reflect light, like standard paper. This is why they strain your eyes less. As far as reducing eye strain with a non-e-ink device, try ...

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 ...
