It doesn't show any PDF document when I try to view on my device

When I simulate my prototype I can visualize all PDF documents correctly, but when I try to view on my device it doesn't show any PDF document,


Do I need another APP (like for example Adobe on my phone) to visualize PDF documents on my device?


Thank you very much in advance.


Regards

It looks like Android has some limitations with displaying embedded PDFs. Here's a workaround:

Create a "Link To" event that goes to this URL:

http://drive.google.com/viewerng/viewer?embedded=true&url=http://yourpdf.pdf" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://yourpdf.pdf">http://drive.google.com/viewerng/viewer?embedded=true&url=http://yourpdf.pdf

Where http://yourpdf.pdf is where you type in the address of your PDF.

Thank you Danielle. It works.

But now I have another question:

How can I go back to the same screen after I visualize a PDF document?


When I press the back arrow button on my phone, the app go to the first screen. Even though I select the option "Open in a new tab" when I create a "Link To" event.
