Long time no see.Nowadays at programmingwizards we are so consistemt with tutorials that 1 week seems ages.Anyway we are continuing.
Today we are covering how to make a basic PDF viewer.We shall load all pdf documnets from the downloads directory in our SD Card.Then we display them in a gridview with cards.
When you click a single pdf,we open/render that pdf in a new pdf activity.This is a standalone app.We are not opening any third party intent from the device.We are instead using a third party library,android pdf viewer to render our pdf.
The user shall be able to navigate by swiping or scrolling,zooming etc.
