    Hi,

    I was searching for primarily the free pdf reader apps and found many.

    Anyone recommend one they like?

    Thanks,

    Robert

    Hmm,

    when I did a google search, I swore someone said they clicked the attachment in a email and it didn't work.

    I'll try emailing a pdf and see what happens.

    Umm Yeah, don't you believe everything you read? :icon_eek: J/K

    Yes it did work- Imagine that! haha

    Another question on this- Opening the attachment is fine, but is there a way to save the pdf, and if so, where will it go so I can find it again?

    Hmmm. I think you should be able to LONG PRESS on the thumbnail and get a menu option to Save. Now as to where, I have no idea. Do you have Astro File Manager or any file manager? If so, you could do a search for *.pdf and see where it ended up...

    If it came with the phone then yes. I tried long pressing the thumbnail but nothing happened. Can't seem to get a save option from the menu.

    It saves it to the "Downloads" folder. You can re-access it using the "More" menu on the web browser if you don't have a file manager like Astro, etc. That is unless you clear the Downloads list. :)

    I've been using PDF To Go (paid). My only issue is that it doesn't let me save a bookmark (as far as I can tell). I would like to use it to read books that are in PDF form, but if I can't save a bookmark, it's no use to me. For now I convert to ePub, but that eliminates the formatting. I'm still not quite sure why they give you the ability to use bookmarks, but not create them.

    Why not download Adobe's acrobat reader for Android.

    I'm assuming You meant you couldn't find it. Simply look up Adobe in the Market.

    You are correct hook. I checked Adobe's website and couldn't find it there. I actually use Documents to Go. Thanks
