    Hi all
    I need a good pdf viewer, on the market there are two (> 4 stars) cheap options (AFAIK)

    BeamReader (1.99)
    RepliGo (1.99)

    I only find comparison betweek Beamreader and docs2go(9.99) and many of you point that d2g can do more that beamreader, but I don't need to read office files (I do use openoffice and D2g doesn't seem to be able to read odf)

    I didn't find a direct comparison between the first two options so which is better Beamreader or Repligo and why? :confused:
    Thank you
    K.

    I've had Repligo on other platforms, but not the Android. Wasn't wild about it then, so I felt no need to experiment now.

    On my Droid, I had Docs2Go before hearing about BeamReader. I get a lot of electronic faxes (pdf attached to email). With Docs2Go, I'd groan when performing the chore. It got the job done, but awkwardly in spots. The BeamReader trial went so well that I popped for the Pro version quickly. No regrets. Nowadays, I don't blink when I see a pdf attachment. BR is just that good-- I'd have never believed handling PDFs on a small device could be comfortable, but it is. The thing just works, and magnificently. It's now my default. I don't go near Docs2Go anymore except for actually composing/editing docs/spreadsheets. Best quick phrase description: super-easy manipulation & viewing.

    Suggestion: email yourself a few pdf files. Since we get a 24-hour trial period before refunding dies, you'll have time to really experiment. Decide on one, then uninstall/refund the other(s).

    Are the only options paid PDF apps?

    I'm looking for a free PDF viewer that will remember my place when I close a document, or let me set a bookmark...anyone?

    MobilePDFViewer is a free offline PDF reader for Android.

    Thanks for the tip, and my apologies for not providing more information in my initial post. I'm on a Sprint Hero running Android 1.5, so it looks like MobilePDFViewer won't work for me yet since it only runs on Android 1.6+; but I'll definitely keep it in mind when the 2.1 update comes along.

    Thanks again,


    sleepy

    Yes, that's right, MobilePDFViewer does only work on Android 1.6 or later.

    FYI, meanwhile MobilePDFViewer also runs on Android 1.5 devices.
