    What happened to the native HTC PDF Viewer? I noticed today that PDF Viewer is no longer on my incredible. Now, Adobe Reader opens up my PDFs. Adobe Reader sucks! It's so slow and laggy that I can't use it. PDF Viewer was so much smoother and faster when viewing/zooming PDFs. Does anyone know where it went? Can I get it back?

    I tried. I can only uninstall the updates but not the factory version of Adobe Reader. I'm not rooted.

    Was this changed with the Froyo update? I only started noticing a difference since last weeks update.

    Also, even if I could uninstall Adobe Reader, my native PDF Viewer application is no longer on the phone and I can't find an apk anywhere.

    The deed seems to have been done by the Nov. OTA. I agree it sucks.

    I had it on Froyo last week. Now it has vanished, must have been the update at the weekend.

    It is a $1 but ezPDF reader is the best out of all that I've found. I agree that the HTC pdf viewer was awesome, but I jumped that gate a long time ago when I rooted with an AOSP rom.

    I use Repligo. It's better than Beam Reader IMO. I haven't tried EzPdf. I use and need a PDF reader on my phone. Repligo loads fast and has zoom and most importantly a reading view. I believe it costs $3.99 but if you really need a good PDF reader than it is worth it. It also has a 10 day trial period so you can try it out. Beam reader also has a trial period so try them both out.

    I just tried the Repligo trial and was amazed by how fast everything loads! I use my Incredible often to read music scores while I'm sitting in orchestra, so I really do need quick page turns. I'm going to use the trial to it's fullest and see if I get annoyed with anything. +1 for Repligo
