Good application, but I noticed little bugs like text no justify or "extra space" in word.
I think too rotation is good idea ^^

Another feature could be to allow the user to define bookmarks for the pages of a document, or at least to let the application remember the last page viewed for each document. It is useful when reading ebooks =)
It is also simple to implement, you can use the preferences functionality or rely on the android database

The version is an early alpha, and I'm showing it for to reasons:
(1) Test it on real devices (I don't have one)
(2) Get feedback (bugs/problems)

Currently it only can render text, and it only renders it in black. No images, no other stuff. But it is text that we are mostly interested in, right?
It works reasonably well for small and medium documents, and will probably run out of memory on large (500+ pages) documents.
It also shows one page at a time. No fancy page scrolling for now. Use single tap to get up/down controls. Double tap to get zoom controls. You can also use d-pad for page navigation and zooming.

Please try it and report:
(1) Speed
(2) Ease of use
(3) Bugs (of course)
(4) Suggestions
(5) Etc.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Version 0.1.7
* two stupid nasty bugs fixed

Version 0.1.6
* more parsing speed
* screen rotation handling
* new zoom controls
* extensive error reporting (crash reports, error reports)


Your app is very good,can I study this app;thank you!
