How do you view PDF files on an Android device?

Do you have any tips for PDF (iBooks) on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod?

Do you have any tips for PDF files on the Kindle or Kindle Fire?

  • Adjust settings on the Kindle:
    • Pull down settings from the top of the kindle and tap on "more", then tap on "device".
    • You'll see "allow installation of application from unknown sources".
    • Toggle to "on" position. That's it. Hope it works for you!


  • Where did the files I downloaded to my Kindle Fire go?

The menu system seems pretty easy to navigate around on the Kindle Fire. Perhaps too easy at times. When I realized that I wanted to continue reading a PDF file that I had downloaded directly to my Fire from a website, I could not for the life of me figure out where the folders were for me to find this file.

I ended up redownloading the file to continue reading it. But again, I wanted to continue with this file.

Fear not. You can easily get to your downloaded files rather easily. It does not seem to make complete sense to me why it is set up this way, but what you need to do is;

  • open the web browser,
  • then click on the little bar of paper icon (that's the best that I can describe it) found on the bottom black bar.
  • There you will find a link to your downloads, that you will be able to access, with out having to download that file every time you want to access it.



  • How to Get PDFs Onto My Kindle Fire
    You can send your PDF files to your Kindle email address and put "convert" as the subject. Then all the PDF files will be converted to Kindle content. No one has to pay Amazon to convert a pdf. It just does it if you put "Convert" in the subject line when sending a PDF, via email, to your Kindle device.



  • Page rotation, Kindle Fire

Click the Settings Gear to find the Locked / Unlocked setting.

Note: the setting is obtained by dragging a finger down from the top of the screen.http://www.technipages.com/kindle-fire-enabledisable-screen-rotation


  • Page rotation, Kindle
  • Run the app, then load any book.
  • Tap the lower right corner of the screen. You should see a little padlock icon.
  • While it's still visible, tap that icon to toggle between locked and unlocked settings. 
  • When it shows locked, the screen will not rotate from whichever orientation it's currently in.
  • When it shows unlocked, the screen will rotate when you tilt your device.

Note: If you've disabled auto-rotate in your device's operating system, setting the Kindle app to "unlock" will have no effect; the global settings override it.
So if you do want screen rotation, make sure it's enabled in the OS first.

How do you transfer PDF files to a Nook?
