    I have a Coby Kyros 7015, what's the best way to read pdf files? I have many books and files and I don't know how to see them. Do I need a new app?
    Thanks.

    There are multiple PDF readers. Each has their favorite. I use the Adobe Acrobat for Android and Docs to Go PDF reader. Both work like a champ.
    I know there are other readers. but if you deal with any DRM PDF content, the Adobe reader will be the first to have the capability.

    When I try to load the Android version of Adobe reader, my Coby Kyros 7015 says something like I don't have permission. Must I root it first or is there a way to get it loaded and installed?

    What version of Android do you have. If you have 2.1 or 2.2 It should not require permissions to load or run. I thought the Coby had 2.1. Otherwise try Buffreader or Droidreader. Those work on older Android versions.

    My Coby Kyros 7015 uses 2.1. My appslib was working, but after 3 downloads it gets an error when I try any new downloads. I'm going to try uninstalling the program and see if it will let me reinstall. Without Appslib working I don't seem to be able to install anything.
    Thanks for taking the time to reply...

    I'm using Adobe. I just went to
    Adobe - Adobe Reader download - All versions
    selected:
    Android
    English
    Android X English for Android
    then [Download now]
    Use the USB to copy it to the MID7015 to /nand/ if you don't have an SD card or to /sdcard/ if you do.
    Then use a file browser like FileBrowser by Jimmy Wahlberg - go to the file and click to open it. When it asks install? say Yes. Done.
    Adobe's version is fine. It's faster and nicer than PDF Viewer, which I then uninstalled.

    But still this MID7015 seems very slow compared to my three core desktop PC. - 1 core at 800 MHz vs. 3 cores at 2.8 GHz - not a fair comparison.

    Edit:
    I didn't try downloading it on the MID7015 - I guess I could have - I just tested it - works but now I have to find where the download was stored.

    Thanks, I installed File Manager from AppsLib and did what you said. Copied Adobe Reader Android version onto the micro SD card, from there simple used Filie Manager to install it. Yes Adobe's reader is way better, uninstalled the other two pdf readers I was testing. I'm happy now. :)

    Hi
    I still dont understand how to install the Adobe Reader for my Kyros, when i downloaded the file, it is a zip file, and I can not open the file using any file brower software, if I unzip the file on my PC first, then transfer the file folder using the SD card, I still can not open the file. Can anyone help me with this, thanks!!

    I just checked on the Adobe site.
    The download is an apk, just move it to the Coby and click on it with a file manager.
    How did you get a zip file?

    HI Ridgeland

    I followed all of your steps as listed in your previous post. When I click "Download Now" after selecting "Reader X English for Android", the file is "AdobeReader.zip" this is strange..I am using PC running windows 7 to download the file

    I use Firefox with Linux - Ubuntu 10.10
    An apk file is a type of zip file. Maybe MS is taking the liberty to rename the extension. I don't know.
    Two things I can think to try:
    1 - download it anyway and change the extension from .zip to .apk and see if the Coby installs it
    2 - try to download it with Firefox.
    I just downloaded it to see the size:
    My file browser shows size is 1.5 MB (1565957 bytes)

    You are right about MS Explorer changing the file extension by itself, after downloaded it using Firefox, problem solved. Thnaks Ridgeland
