Do any homebrew apps read pdfs?
No, but you could convert the document into a ComicBook DS file (and use Comicbook DS..), which works really well and kinda similar to PDF files.
why dose everyone want a pdf homebrew...
i want this too
i want to kow if i s posible though
More than likely it would take waaaaaaaaaaay more power than the DS has. Convert to a series of images and use Comic Book DS instead.
ebooks come in PDF a lot of the time.
I usually convert .PDF ebooks to .txt files for ease of use in Sakura,
but noONE's suggestion is pretty good if the file also has images.
For now, those are your best bets, since I've not seen a .PDF reader for DS,
nor have I heard any plans for one.
Open up Task Manager and minimize it. Open your e-book and scroll around a bit. Take a look at the little CPU usage icon in your taskbar as you do this. Now keep in mind that the DS only has a 66 MHz main processor and 4 MB of RAM. How powerful is your PC? How much RAM does Task Manager say your PDF reader is using?
Of course a PDF reader is possible. Making one that works at a decent speed however would be a real challenge.
Adobe Acrobat takes a lot of RAM, not ALL pdf readers, lol.
The purpose of a PDF is to create a page with elements set at different points. That means any PDF wider than 256 pixels would be hard to read. (Though the touch screen would make it easier)
If you had a web browser that can read html files from a location on your card, and render those correctly... There are pdf -> html converters, aren't there? At any rate, those would probably be the most economical.
