PDF files are mostly used for two cases. The first is for business, where you can create forms in PDF format and the second is for reading e-books. PDF files are easy to access, which works well for reading. PDF reader apps only address any one of these two cased but here I have compiled a list of the best PDF reader apps on Android for both.
