    Hello,

    we are currently evaluating PDF frameworks with a specific feature set. Your framework looks promising, however we have encountered multiple severe issues during evaluation of the Android version:

    Setup:
    – ReaderView is defined in the XML layout.
    – Example PDF as raw resource loaded as InputStream, writing it into a byte array and then use the openData method of ReaderView. We have used several PDFs for testing.
    – We have encountered these issues on multiple devices like the Nexus 5 and Nexus 9 and on the emulator in different configurations.

    Issues:
    – With PageDisplayMode.BILATERAL_REALISTIC and FitType.HEIGHT, when turning pages back, the left page often shows the wrong page.
    – With PageDisplayMode.BILATERAL_REALISTIC and FitType.HEIGHT, the page turning animation only works correctly if you start the touch close to the left or right edge. If you try to turn pages by touching closer to the middle, then it usually doesn’t work at all or only shows a part of the animation.
    – PageDisplayMode.BILATERAL_HORIZONTAL doesn’t seem to work at all; I only see a solid grey background.
    – In PageDisplayMode.THUMBNAIL only the initially visible pages are rendered correctly. When scrolling down while most pages are still loading, the affected pages never stop loading until scrolling them out of the visible area and scrolling back. However they show the wrong pages. It looks like an issue with reusing views.
    – Search doesn’t seem to work all the time. If I search a specific text it finds it and moves you the right page. However if I turn back one or more pages and search for the same text again, it suddenly doesn’t find the text anymore.

    We also do not like the fact that the search function automatically shows a progress and a result dialog. Visualizing the search progress should be done by the app developer.

    We think that your framework has potential and the performance is acceptable, but currently these issues are too severe and not acceptable for an app for an end user. We hope that you can reproduce these issues.

    Best regards
