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:

You can find this reader for free on the developer´s original post. If you liked it, please leave some feedback.

[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.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
