PDF reader recommendations?

Morning,

A number of the .pdf files I like to read are in two column format. Docs to Go does well enough once I zoom in a bit, but it has a bad habit of resizing as I sweep the page to move around.

Is there a pdf reader where I can lock in the zoom setting? Or any other good recommendations for viewers that are good for multi-column formats?

Thank you!

ezPDF reader will lock horizontal scroll. It is my preferred reader on the eDGE. Check out the Apps section of my Resource Sticky for download details.

The problem you describe is inherent to Android and will happen on a lot of Apps. It takes a little practice to navigate a webpage or even Docs to Go without zooming. The key is to hold your finger in place while sweeping and try not to tap when touching the screen which brings up zoom.

I checked Reflow the PDF and the eInk screen displayed my two column book as one column quite nicely.
