    Tried Beam for a while, but it fell short of my expectations despite being the most accurate renderer of pdf documents on Droid. Some really quirky UI decisions like page squishing when you scroll & poor zoom controls. Additionally, non-adaptive resolution, slow rendering, and display problems with multi-page spreads made this an uninstall. Developer seemed apathetic about these issues.

    I bought Repligo on-sale for $.99 and it's more thoughtfully implemented. The rendering isn't as accurate with some complex opacity layering, but I contacted the Dev and he promptly responded and forwarded the pdfs in question to his development department for testing. Resolution remains sharp when zooming in. When all else is equal, I always give responsive developers the nod.

    Another vote for Documents To Go (paid version). I used it a dozen times today as my faxes come in as pdf's.
