    It would be nice to have a PDF file reader for the PPC version of Basic4PPC.

    I am currently using Adobe Acrobat Reader to view PDF files on Pocket PC's.
    The problem now is Adobe has not come out with a Reader for the newer Pocket PC's. Therefore, it would be nice if Basic4PPC had a reader specifically for PDF files and then I wouldn't need the Adobe Reader to read PDF's on the Pocket PC.

    PDF File

    Paulo,

    I tried PocketXPDF, but it took way too long to load my PDF file (12.9MB) and the text did not reflow very good on a Pocket PC running Pocket PC 2003.
    Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

    Angelo

    I put out legal reference material in PDF format and I had a user who had a Motorola Q Phone (WM5) and he could not get the Adobe Acrobat Reader on his unit until he installed "Total Commander" which allowed him to edit the registry and then he was able to install and run the Acrobat Reader. With all the new hand held units coming out, I'm looking for a way that I can somehow read PDF files and use Basic4PPC without having to rely on the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
