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.

User feedback:
We would love to hear from you, please send feedback and feature requests to us by email (devel [a] acadoid.com). If you encounter a problem with the app, please email us and we will do our very best to fix it quickly.

Major features:
* requires only minimal permissions and no internet connection (we do respect your privacy!)
* allows other apps to convert a PDF file into a set of PNG files with a given resolution, either a single page or a page set

    Everything works great, except for the safe zone. As soon as I rest my palm on this zone the app stops recognising my input and just ignores it.

    I was going to give 4 stars but I definitely more than "like" this app. It would benefit if it could import multiple pages of pdf into open notebook. other than that... it's all good

    tried many similar. this is the best! i like the simultaneous voice recording that scrolls notes as it plays back. i have memory issues from brain damage as well as horrible handwriting (not from damage, just bad) so the recording is immense help.

    Excellent complement for lecture notes, can import and convert to notebook PDFs allowing later markup.
