There are free PDF viewer apps out there. Why reinvent the wheel?

Maybe one of these fits: http://www.coderanch.com/t/527716/Android/Mobile/Open-source-PDF-viewer-Android. They're all old and probably unmaintained by now. You may end up having to license a commercial library.

Have you looked at any of the commercial libraries?

Aspose has a lot of features, but -just like iText- apparently no viewing component. PDFTrom, radaeepdf.com and JoanZapata/android-pdfview all claim to render PDFs.

And these were just the ones I found on the first page of searching for "android pdf libraries". You must not have searched very hard if you didn't find these.

Why don't you reread my post -a bit more carefully this time- and you should find the answer.

(Edited later: This post doesn't make as much sense as it did before the post it responds was changed from mentioning "Aspose" to "Radaee PDF".)

So radaeepdf.com must has viewing facility ?

What did you find out when you visited the respective web sites? (This contains the implicit assumption that you have done so; if not, it contains the implicit request to do so now.)

(I notice that "PDFTrom" contains a typo, but thanks to Google's awesomeness, no harm done.)
