Remember last viewed page and reading layout setting. Imagine how useful it is when you are reading a big PDF file with few tens pages – I don’t have to remember the last page I quit as AlternateReader does a flavor by opening that page automatically and render it with the last used zoom level! It is cool, isn’t it?, Able to view PDF in full screen mode persistently (doesn’t fall back to normal view mode as easy as Adobe Reader LE).

Easily page up and down – tap once at bottom of screen to page down; if bottom of page is rendered on screen, double tap at the bottom of screen is to display next page. Similar fashion is used to move page up (tap at top of screen) and move back to previous page (double tap at top of screen when top of the page is rendered on screen).

Capable to open big PDF file with hundreds of pages containing heavy graphics – the one I tested has 140 pages measured at about 42MB. It is an open source freeware for reading PDF and DJVU files on mobile phones running Symbian OS 9.x, including the latest Symbian^3!

If you’re interested, try download and install AlternateReader S9.4 1.08(4) Release.sisx on Nokia N8 (1.6MB; the version for S60 5th Edition). Hopefully there will be a new release of AlternateReader that make use of Symbian^3 features, such as multi-touch on N8 capacitive touchscreen or pinch-to-zoom gesture. DjVu & PDF reader for Symbian OS 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4 The program is based on Poppler, DjvuLibre.
