I was devastated when I found out that android's webview can't view PDFs . The next step is adobe reader. Can I use adobe in-app, or do I have to fire it up and switch to a new instance? - Steven

Devastated? Wow.

Isn't stuff like this normally handled with an intent/activity? You'd need to basically rip out the rendering engine and embed it in your own code in order to view it inter-app, no?

I had hoped for some sort of an embed function. Does such a thing exist? Is this what you were talking about (rip the guts out)? Can you point me to a useful example? (I havent found one).

Regards, Steven

AFAIK, there isn't a widget/control bundled with the stock Android SDK that lets you open,read and/or view PDF files.
