    How to display PDF on each device

    Tomita2007 Community Member

      We observed some mobile devices don't open the PDF directly and start to download.

      Does this depend on OS, Browser or something else?

      We tested iPhone and Android.

      Android starts to dawnload PDF by clicking PDF on our application. User has to open the PDF after downloading.

      iPhone opens the PDF directly by clicking PDF on our application.

      We would like to ristrict to use our application if user cannot open PDF directly.

      Please advise how we can get this kind of information.

            Thank you for your reply.

            I tested with below conbinations.

             

            iPhone and Chrome, the result is PDF is not opened.

            iPhone and Safari, the PDF shows Preview screen.

            Android and firefox, the PDF is downloaded.

             

            I would like to get the infromation about the behaivour of PDF on smart phone with various combinations such as OS and Brower, and then each version of OS and Browser.

             

            I am very sorry but I cannot speak English well.

            I am not sure whether I can tell what I would like to know.

            If somebody can answer in Japanese, it is also very helpful me.

            Of cource I will try to understand if it is written in English.

             

            Thank you.
