    I've tried BeamReader Pro/paid, QuickOffice free and Adobe's Android Acrobat Reader. All have problems.

    Acrobat Reader and QuickOffice free do not have the ability to search a PDF.

    BeamReader Pro can search a document, but won't make use of an embedded index, so searches are slow, even on pre-indexed PDFs.

    BeamReader looses its mind when you switch from portrait to landscape.

    Acrobat Reader and QuickOffice recognize phone numbers in PDFs, so you can tap to dial them on Android, but BeamReader Pro does not.

    I am very disappointed with all of the above. Is there anything better? I see that there is a US$9.99 paid version of QuickOffice, but the description does not mention capabilities pertaining to PDFs.

    Take a look on RepliGo Reader.

    I use Documents To Go. It is a paid app but worth it.
