    I recently bought the Optimus M, my 1st android, and I need some help with it. I transferred 2 pdf files from my computer onto the thinkfree office. The problem is, I can't find any way of getting the 2 files onto the home screen. I need some assistance. How exactly can I get the files onto the home separately? I would prefer them separate, but if I have to put them in a folder, I'll be fine with it. Please help. :D

    Hello and welcome to the forums.

    First thing you'll need to do is install ASTRO File Manager - Android app on AppBrain

    Then long-press an empty area of your home screen and select shortcut, then choose Astro.

    At that point Astro file manager will open. Browse to where you copied the .pdf file and select it. It will put a shortcut to the file on your home screen.

    There's adobe reader for mobile, free, it it works wonders. Gives you a list of recently opened files.
