The PDF format has become a standard to present and exchange documents in a reliable manner, regardless of the software or operating system used by its users. It’s compatible with all systems and, although it can contain links, forms, and all sorts of contents, it can’t be modified. For such reason, it’s greatly used in the professional and academic fields.
It’s so common at present that having a PDF file reader on our Android device is a must and Google includes its own native version on its mobile operating system. However, if you ever removed this app from your smartphone or tablet, you might want to download Google PDF Viewer in APK format to reinstall it.
