    I have a samsung moment (sprint).

    The stock pdf viewer is so lagy it is usless. I use foxit on my pc and love the low resources it consumes. Cannt find that on the market, however there are many others..

    Anyone tried any of the pdf viewers and have any recomdations?

    Thanks :)

    After trying all I could get my grubby little hands on, I happily paid (memory) $2 for BeamReader. Unlike all the others, the thing just works, and beautifully. I'd have never believed handling PDFs on a small-screen device could be anything but a pain in the skleeboop, but I now know better. I'm in and out of it multiple times daily, per faxes arriving as PDF attachments. The more I use BeamReader, the more I love it. Intuitive, easy, quick!

    As already mentioned in another thread, MobilePDFViewer also works quite well plus it's free. But it requires Android 1.6 or higher.

    Best I have found so far. Thank you!


    The moment has 1.5 so this doesnt help much :rolleyes: but maybe I will try it if they ever upgrade us to 2.1.

    I have the Moment and use Beam Reader because of its quick rendering and ability to handle any PDF compression mode thrown at it.
