PDFView is a PDF viewer based on the excellent MuPDF library. It is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version. The APK is provided here for convenience, you can download the source code at http://www.acadoid.com/src/pdfview.tgz.

NOTE: PDFView is not a PDF viewer in the sense of displaying PDF files, there is no graphical user interface and the app is not supposed to be started directly. Instead, it is a PDF viewer that provides PDF rendering service to other apps via a documented interface. At the moment, the app is only used by LectureNotes, but all other Android developers are invited to include an interface to PDFView into their apps and use PDFView for PDF rendering. Details of the interface can be found in the source of PDFView.

    Use this to import lecturers notes to 'lecture notes' app. Can then annotate comfortably with no need to frantically copy what is on the board.

    Just gives an error that it can only handle locally stored files. My file is stored locally.

    On 4.4. With the default file picker, it gives the error pdfview can only handle files stored locally. My file is on the internal sdcard portion. Must use alternate file explorer

    Conversion for 5 pages took longer than 20 min. Not practical.
