Here in the digital XDA newsroom, we spend our days pouring over an average of 2,500 news items and forum threads every 24 hours. Only the most timely and interesting bits survive the editing process, but the portal's front page still sees weekly counts in excess of 100 posts. This is a glut of content to absorb, especially if following the news cycle isn't your full-time job. However, the tech world is vast, and the information must flow. With this in mind, please...
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.
– 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.
