I have a test branch on local system for pdf files and the interesting part is the generated APK have bunch of heavy libraries now which made it around 23MB in size. That’s huge by the standard of GitNex which is around 4MB right now.

Tested this library, works like a charm but the size is big minus for me.

It depends on the library used. I am still looking for best solution though.

If you find any, please share here.

I am looking for lightweight lib to include in the app. Otherwise use other app like Document viewer to view the files after download.

But priority is to include in the app. :smile:
