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.

    The flexibility and functionality of this app makes it perfect for taking notes with a digitizer. Simply awesome.

    Other than some weird issues with uploading PDFs locally and a slightly hard to use UI, I like this app a lot. Being able to move and resize anything on the screen is incredibly useful, and the layers makes editing documents a breeze. All in all, worth the purchase.

    Nice app but often I would like to use two notebooks at once and copy from one to another.
