There are apps that will let you read office docs or ebooks on your smartwatch, or browse news headlines, but when it comes to PDFs few apps are as useful as the PDF Reader for Android Wear which just crossed my desk today.
This app lets you read, scroll around, or zoom in/out on any DRM-free PDF. Reflow is not supported, but the app does have page turn buttons and a night mode. According to the listing in Google play, additional options are available after a long press on a screen, including a list of files transferred to the app.
Text-to-speech, annotation features like notes and highlights, and the option to save an edited PDF are in the works (just kidding).
To open a PDF in the app, simply browse the file manager on your smartphone, select a PDF, and choose the option to open it in “PDF Reader”. Within a moment, it will be transferred to your Wear smartwatch. (Transferring files as large as 50 MB will take few minutes.)
Thanks to this app, you now have a new option for leaving your smartphone in your pocket and getting work done on the inch and a half wide screen residing on the back of your wrist.
And what could be better than that?
You can find the app in Google Play.
