    I'm not sure yet, With the last version none of my Files would open.
    I'll try this one and see if it works.

    Documentation seems to be sparse at the moment, but from what I can tell due to the memory limitations of the DS, this can't yet open PDF files larger than 32mb. But after saying that, I've struggled to even open any PDF files smaller than 32mb.

    Looks like a promising homebrew app and I for one welcome our new PDF reading overlord.

    Edit, okay I got it to open a 10mb PDF, but it just gives me repeated 'ERROR: out of memory in <internal>:0' and 'MEM ABORT 393216'.

    I guess I'll have to wait until this matures a bit more.

    It's good to see a working PDF reader on the DS but it isn't exactly worth using. It's quite slow in the current state.

    I think is a fantastic app even if it is in a early state, I've been able to open books in pdf format and I think if he add a view mode just to read texts is gonna be really usefull.

    from what i understand the big problem is pdf files which contain images. the dev has joined gbatemp, i'm sure he will post in this thread and answer all of the current concerns.

    cheers,

    Wow, fantastic. Maybe not very useful for people looking towards using the DS as some kind of fancy-comics or manuals reading device, but inmensely useful if you're planning on using it just to read books w/o images. Most of those are usually a lot smaller in size than 10mb!!! [​IMG] Gonna give this a try and see.

    Should I create any special folder at the root of my memory card so as to get this working?
