Alternative PDF Viewer for Android

PDF remains a very popular format for sharing and sending documents. You might have seen video game instructions in PDF format, or perhaps a recent corporate document came your way saved as a pdf.
This format has been around since 1993 and was classified as an open standard in 2008. Since then, pdf has become a de-facto file format for any modern device.
Based on the open source MuPDF library Maciej’s PDF Viewer, XDA member arpruss presents his own modified version of the pdf reader for our Android devices featuring:

[APP] PDF Viewer update

I needed a PDF viewer for my own purposes, and the closest I could find was Maciej’s PDF Viewer (=apv) app on the market. It was open source, and so I made a bunch of changes that I wanted or needed. Anyway, I now have a pre-release for version 0.3.0, which include a bunch of enhancements since Maciej’s 0.2.9 release.

New features:
– speed optimizations
– page number display
– options including: full screen, reverse video, various tweaks, page with volume keys
– overhauled file selection: added icons for directories, added home directory option
– better font rendering

Continue on to the application thread.
