I'll be reading page 10 of a magazine when the viewer spontaneously goes completely haywire and jumps to page 77. When I eventually find my place and continue reading it'll do the same thing again 30 seconds later! Complete waste of time if it can't be relied upon to remain on the page you scroll to. I'd uninstall it and never look back if it wasn't for the fact that the Adobe reader can't display some of my documents. This app needs to be fixed or put out of its misery!
Simple, just as I needed it. Yeah, no shortcut, because what would you do with it, start a new pdf? It's not like a music player, to keep playlists (although I understand how that would have been handy on a phone, sort of like a galery with all your pdf's; I mean, you also don't have a shortcut to an app to view pictures, but you do have a galery, which is kinda it; every other book reader has that). So yeah, I don't need the shortcut, but I understand the people who would have liked to have it.
Good but why is there no shortcut! Google can't we have a shortcut for this app, I don't want other 3rd party apps, it just makes it hard to go to a file manager then look for the PDF document then open it, why can't it be that we have a standalone shortcut of Google PDF viewer and then it shows all available PDFs in the phone. I like the app specially that it's trustworthy from Google, the only issue is the one I mentioned. Hope Google listens.
Stop looking for the app silly wads It's a reader, nothing more, nothing less. It works silently in the background AS IT SHOULD. Find the pdf file you're trying to look for in your phone (even better yet, use a file explorer), and open it, it's all automatic. If it says "incompatible", then it's not the issue with the reader, but that of the file. And if you say "blah blah blah has no issue reading it", then why complain about this one? Use the other one or keep both. This reader works just fine. Stop whining.
Thanks Google! Awesome app. To the fools complaining about not finding icon, please stop, give your device to someone who knows how to use it. The thing is, once installed it will open PDF files for you when you open them with explorer or directly from gmail etc. So open file explorer and go to PDF file and finally open it, you will see the magic.
needs a shortcut Google developers, please give this app a shortcut in the app drawer. From reading the comments it's obvious people don't know how to open it. Going to a file manager every time is counterintuitive. I do like that the app is small.
