Thread: Need a .pdf reader for android

    Need a .pdf reader for android

    Adobe's recent update wont let me view my pdf's unless I create a free account or use a google account. I dont want to do either of those. Can anyone suggest another .pdf reader app?

    I just want to open and read my pdf's.

    Thanks folks.

    I use MuPDF on my tablet. It only lets me have a single file open at once, (I wish it had tabs,) but was the best of the free ones I tried when I was looking a couple years ago.

    There are several options in the play store besides Adobe and Google. I'd think one of those would work for you.

    My phone uses Drive pdf viewer or Samsung notes.

    Ever since I decided to pay for Adobe and got zero use out of it because not once did it NOT crash my computer when attempting to load, I've been using Foxit reader and really like it... Jim says there's an android version, I suggest trying it...

    That's a good one. Tried it and like it. Way better interface than Adobe.

    Thanks for sharing!
