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

Hi Kelvin,

Thanks for pointing this out. I'm afraid this might be one of those "patches welcome" moments
though :). PDFs within IAB are pretty low priority, so it's unlikely we'll get to it any time
soon - but if you've already got #1 working, then I think it's a good idea to put it in :)

> When I was making use of the ChildBrowser for both iOS and Android, I wrote an extra
bit of code to enable PDF support for the Android version (which started up the installed
PDF application if there was one).
> I also understand that the Android WebView doesn't natively support viewing a PDF document
which is why it doesn't fully behave like the iOS version - but is it possible to either:
1) write similar code which, if the opened URL is directed to a PDF file, then it opens the
native PDF reader or; 2) integrate a PDF view into the InAppBrowser which opens a PDF document
much like InAppBrowser does on iOS.
> (1) is what I currently have working at the moment and would probably be easiest. (2)
is what would be very good but I expect more difficult to achieve.
