Using BlackBerry as a PDF Viewer
I believe this is still one of the cons of BlackBerry Smartphones. I have one myself and you can’t just download a PDF file and click on it to open for your reading pleasure. No, at least not yet.
It amazes me when I think about how many basic features the Blackberry smartphones are lacking.I can remember another now. I suffer the lack of this feature everyday. I can’t believe, there is no “Select all” function in the BlackBerry Memo. It’s annoying.
Well, we should have borrowed a clue from the name of the Manufacturers- Research-In-Motion (RIM). Lol.
This is the default mean by which you can view PDF on your BlackBerry. To read Adobe PDF files on your BlackBerry, you can simply send that file as an attachment to your own email address and then use the built-in PDF viewer of BlackBerry’s email client to read that document. The same idea may be used for reading Office documents, such as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, on the BlackBerry.
But if your desire is just to download PDF and read or send PDF to your phone and read, then you need a standalone PDF viewer like the Documents to Go or Beam Reader. These apps can handle both PDF attachments and PDF documents stored on the memory card of your BlackBerry but you have to pay for them.
