Default Viewing PDF's on my 8830 Seems to be difficuly HELP

Please Login to Remove!

I am going electronic with a few of my documents to consolidate my briefcase. I want to take a few of my documents and PDF them to view on my phone for review in the small instances that I would need them. So I did a search here and online for PDF viewers and found several that were recommend here and online. I downloaded a few of them to try them out and am extremely disappointed with this so far. Here is what I want to, if you have recommendations please let me know. I downloaded the following so far:

DocHawk
eOffice
Repligo

I want to be able to load PDF's to my memory card, and view them when I want. DocHawk seems to only work with eMail messages and attachments, Repligo, you have to upload them to the site and then go from there and access them online through their server, very slow, and eOffice, I can't figure the damn thing out to even find a PDF that I loaded in the phone. Very frustrated.

All I want to do is view PDF's that are in a file that I created on my memory card. It’s that simple.

Any help would be appreciated.

BeamBerry is really the best app for this job with PDFs. Currently, their page rendering is server based like Repligo, but they are in beta for an on-device page rendering application.

But, in the current release of BeamBerry, you can view from your Media Card, or their server saved copy of the document. Works pretty well for me.

RepliGo Reader, which allows you to view native PDF files stored on the microSD card, is also in beta:
"RepliGo Reader is a full-featured Adobe® PDF viewer, similar to Adobe® Reader for your desktop. You can quickly zoom in and out of documents to inspect the details of any page. RepliGo Reader can also intelligently reformat pages to fit the width of your BlackBerry screen, making it easy to read documents by eliminating horizontal scrolling.

RepliGo Reader is compatible only with BlackBerry 8100 Series, BlackBerry 8300, BlackBerry 8700, and BlackBerry 8800 Series.

RepliGo Reader is currently under development and a beta program will begin in June 08. Pricing has not yet been determined."

Thanks for the info, I downloaded Beamberry and have completly differnet problems. It will not even launch on my 8830WE. I played with eOffice some more and its really pissing me off. It tells me to convert it in the eOffice desktop so i try that and it tells me unknown error when I try to convert it.

This seemingly simple taks is really starting to piss me off. Any more ideas beamberry loads the icon and thats it pretty much. Unless Iam missing something.
