Is there a way to display PDF files in Android? I have tried the examples using a webview, but only get a blank page. It seems PDF files are not supported by default?
Can I download and bundle some kind of framework with my application that will handle the display of PDFs?

I created a Titanium module(in Java) that converts a pdf file into images (page by page), and saves it in the SDcard. Then created a reader layout using a Webview with next and previous buttons on top, to display these images page by page.
You'll need to integrate a native library. We are working to integrate PDFRender SDK with Appcelerator.

This also works for PDFs you have downloaded to the user's phone.
You'll need to instruct your users to install a PDF reader. You can't bundle apps at this time.
